(Sep. 27, 2011) — The following email was received from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) regarding my concerns about the United Nations:
From: “firstname.lastname@example.org” <senator@feinstein..senate.gov> To: Kristy Lonestar Sent: Monday, September 26, 2011 11:43 AM Subject: U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein responding to your message
Dear Ms. Lonestar:
Thank you for writing to express your views on U.S. membership in the United Nations. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.
I have long supported the goals of the UN as the organization works to promote peace, protect human rights and the environment, and improve economic and social development throughout the world. Participation in the UN acts as an incentive to promote peace and provides a forum for negotiations which can avert the need for more expensive unilateral or bilateral military interventions in the future. I believe that the United States must continue to participate in the UN while we strongly assert our view that the UN, and its peacekeeping operations, must run as efficiently as possible.
Again, thank you for writing. I hope you will continue to keep me informed of your views and concerns. If you should have any further questions or comments, please do not hesitate to call my Washington , D.C. staff at (202) 224-3841.
United States Senator

I then responded:
Dear Senator Feinstein,
Thank you for expressing your views regarding the United Nations. May I express a few of my own?
I watched Mahmoud Abbas and Benjamin Netanyahu speak recently at the U.N. Abbas is not willing to negotiate, he insists on leaving Israel with indefensible borders, and many of his people have stated that they want to “push Jews into the sea.” It’s their mantra. Abbas is also aligning, somewhat, with Hamas, a known terrorist organization. He got numerous standing ovations from the many delegates at the U.N.
Benjamin Netanyahu got no standing ovation. He has offered land for peace for decades, and what does he get in return? Suicide bombers and attacks. The land of Israel that God originally promised extends into Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. There are what, 22 Arab lands surrounding tiny Israel? And they want even more of her land? Why? Why do they want Israel indefensible? So they can attack more?
Jerusalem is not a holy site for the Arabs, Mecca and Medina are. They call Jerusalem al-Quds, and they turn their backs to the Jewish holy site as they face east to pray. They want Israel for themselves, with the Jewish people gone. Let’s face facts.
The United Nations also let Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speak, which is abhorrent. He did nothing but insult us, yet only a portion of the delegates walked out during his speech. The majority stayed. With the standing ovations to Abbas and the support of Ahmadinejad, it is clear where the U.N. stands. And it isn’t with America or Israel, our only ally. Why do we even allow them a building in New York? And they want another one. Will that be paid for with American taxpayer money?
Another issue with the U.N. is Agenda 21. Barack Obama has signed Executive Order 13575 and the government is taking farmlands and rural areas from American citizens as we speak. Agenda 21, if allowed, will take over every aspect of our lives, and this is unacceptable.
So while I appreciate that you responded to my letter, I wonder why you support the United Nations. Why do we even fund them when they are clearly against us and anti-semitic?
