Fox News hack: UN sponsors Palestinian terror!

I haven't written about the right's favorite "UN" scandal for a while. But today I happened upon a choice bit of nonsense from some Fox News bootlick, and thought I'd share.

From that bastion of right-wing crapola, WingNutDaily:


'United Nations killed my son'
Dunh dunh dunh dunh!
JERUSALEM - The United Nations bears responsibility for the murder of Israeli civilians killed in the past few years by Palestinian suicide bombers, families of terror victims here said.
"The U.N. is partly responsible for the death of my son," said Miri Avitan, whose son Assaf was killed in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber in December 2001.
