Varadkar shows UN's hypocrisy

The one year anniversary of Russia's invasion of Ukraine has been marked by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in a problematic address in which he rightly praised the resolve of the Ukrainian people. He said - “In marking this awful anniversary, we think of the scale of suffering by the people of Ukraine, of lives lost, opportunities stolen and whole towns destroyed. “We are humbled by their brave and spirited defence of their country, and we commend their immense courage and resolve. They have been an inspiration to those of us who value freedom and democracy."

Leo Varadkar went on to praise the Irish people for their response - “We think also of the response of the Irish people, who in communities across the country have warmly welcomed people fleeing from war and persecution with an enormously generous spirit." “Irish people have shown empathy and compassion in standing up for what is right."

Leo Varadkar then continued to reassure Ukraine of Irelands support. He also stated - “In defending their country, Ukrainians are defending the fundamental values of the UN Charter." Ukraine are right and justified to defend their land, but to fight for the fundamental values of the UN charter? Herein lies the hypocrisy of the anti Christian UN and western nations. They speak of rights, justice and equality. They speak of how we must act to prevent genocide and violence, but yet they themselves promote and condone the greatest human rights abuse, the greatest violence, the greatest violation of justice and the greatest genocide of our times and possibly ever, namely abortion. To stop the Ukraine war and to stop all war they should also look to themselves and remember Saint Mother Teresa's quote - "We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, killings, of wars, or of hatred...If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other?"

“Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use violence to get what they want. That is why the greatest destroyer of love and peace is abortion.”

One of the Taoiseach's final comments was - " They are standing up for the right of countries throughout the world to live peacefully, within their own borders, and according to their own values and choices." We hope that Ukraine achieves that end. In like manner we also hope that all countries and all people, born and unborn, achieve that end. That will require the UN to stop its anti Christian agenda.
