Editorial Reviews


Grobman's work is both invaluable and definitive. His excellent research, clear writing style, and use of photos make the work easy to follow. His argument is balanced and therefore forceful. The United Nations is the largest Naked Emperor of our time. It is a union of dictatorships against democracies, an institution in which mediocrity and bureaucracy triumph over genius and creativity, and where issues are not diplomatically resolved but rather fomented and allowed to fester. I recognize Grobman's United Nations because once I worked there. Human rights violations of every kind are allowed to flourish under its aegis, both at Turtle Bay and in the world at large. The UN has proved ineffective in every single area including that of genocide and preventable disease save one. Its single (diabolical) accomplishment has been in legalizing and internationalizing Jew hatred. Grobman makes this very clear. This work is an essential weapon in the cultural war against propaganda and Big Lies that currently dominate university life in the West. Phyllis Chesler, Ph.D. Author, The New Anti-Semitism and The Death of Feminism --Phyllis Chesler, Ph.D.

"This is the most comprehensive and informative assessment of Zionism=Racism I have seen. May it enlighten a naive and insufficiently Jewishly educated student constituency." Shoshana Cardin, Former President Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, Former President of JTA and Former Vice Chairman of United Jewish Communities and United Jewish Appeal. "Dr. Alex Grobman's book, Nations United, presents historical and intellectual analyses of a pivotal moment in Jewish, Israeli, and world history as impacted by the United Nations. We learn why the ideals of Zionism are now interpreted as racism throughout much of the world. Jews and Christians, students and scholars, thinking people of all ethnic groups, religions and moral perspectives will now understand how pure ideals can be made derogatory. This is a book that you will want to read!" Marlene Post, President, Hadassah International; Chair, birthright Israel North America; Past National President, Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of America --Marlene Post, President, Hadassah International

Fact by fact, Nations United builds an irrefutable case against the UN for disseminating virulent antisemitism aimed at the destruction of the State of Israel. By explaining each stage in the development of this process, Dr. Grobman shows us how lies and half-truths can once again cause the destruction of the Jewish people. For those who want to understand why Israel finds little support from the rest of the world, and to refute the Left's prevarications and distortions about Israel, you will find this book indispensable. Gary Bauer, president of American Values --Gary Bauer, president of American Values

Whether or not you support the U.N., it's an engrossing book that's well worth the read.
Copious notes at the end of every chapter plus an extensive bibliography provide an impressive collection of sources for further investigation.
Pieter Uys
This is a must read for anyone who has as much as a minor concern for the future of our world.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME on October 24, 2007
Format: Hardcover
This well-researched work chronicles the founding of the United Nations, its role in the recognition of Israel in 1948 and the subsequent history of relations between the two. Unfortunately the world body's attitude towards Israel started to deteriorate soon afterward as Grobman's analysis reveals. This change was brought about by the USSR in alliance with Arab states, later joined by the so-called Non-Aligned block of nations. The book explores the origins and development of the transformation in detail.

The UN became a hotbed of Antisemitism and Anti-Zionism; this strategy culminated in the disgusting 1975 resolution equating Zionism with racism. Although the US finally managed to have it revoked in 1991, the sinister forces behind it were not stopped by the end of the Cold War. The hostility towards Israel and the West did not cease and these agendas are more active than ever, with a majority of member states issuing an unending stream of condemnations against Israel while ignoring the murderous acts of terrorist groups and criminal states.

One of its more loathsome "achievements" was the World Conference Against Racism, the unrestrained Anti-Israel hate-fest which took place in Durban in 2001. The author shows that the organization thrives on Antisemitism while remaining willfully blind to atrocities in places like Rwanda, Chechnya and Darfur. It is obsessed with the deligitimization of the Jewish State and continues to disseminate anti-US and anti-Israel propaganda through its plethora of agencies and associated non-governmental organizations.

The book provides answers on why the UN has failed so miserably with almost every single crisis that it was intended to solve or ameliorate.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on June 10, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Written by Jewish historian Alex Grobman, Nations United: How the United Nations Undermines Israel and the West is a stinging indictment of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism, and anti-Israel speech and action, especially as seen in the United Nations in modern history and the present day. Chapters briefly summarize the origins of Zionism, decry the UN's 1975 Z=R resolution that declared Zionism to be "a form of racism and racial discrimination" (this resolution was repealed in 1991, yet Grobman maintains that repercussions remain), discuss the reprehensible usage of Holocaust denial as a weapon and its consequences, describe modern anti-Semitism in the context of Z=R, and much more. The final passage, "Is the UN Worth It?" crystalizes Grobman's doubts about the failings of this international institution. Part history, part ardent defense of Israel and its practices, part political manifesto, and entirely critical of the UN, Nations United is heavily researched with an extensive list of articles and an index, and worth reading for its insights into the conservative Zionist perspective regardless of whether one agrees entirely with its claims.

Format: Hardcover
As far as I am concerned, any book that exposes the United Nations as an apostate organization bent on the erosion and even destruction of Israel and its western allies is well worth reading. That puts Alex Grobman's book, NATIONS UNITED: HOW THE UNITED NATIONS UNDERMINE ISRAEL AND THE WEST, on my short list of `must reads'. Grobman glaringly illustrates how the U.N. consistently betrays its own charter by failing to support the Jewish state; a nation created in part, by the United Nations.

Dr. Grobman begins his work at the conclusion of WWII, giving a precise analysis of the groundwork surrounding the establishment of Israel. He then takes the reader through the progression of events that have caused support of Israel, by the U.N., to deteriorate to the point of implacable antagonism and opposition. Such events are detailed as the former Soviet Union's disdain for Israel and the mounting dissent of the increasingly more powerful Middle Eastern Muslim countries, whose U.N. membership currently outnumbers Jewish membership by 23 to 1.

You will also glean valuable insight as to how the finances of the U.N. (which comes largely from the west) are being used to promote an anti-Semitic and anti-Western worldwide agenda; how the U.N uses primarily anti-Israel and secondarily anti-Western propaganda to mask the truth of oppression and fanatical leadership of many of the Muslim member states.

Dr. Grobman goes on to illustrate the plethora of ways in which the U.N has aided and abetted atrocious behavior and mishandling of funds by the Palestinians. The reader's attention is also directed to the June, 2006 U.N.

Format: Hardcover
Nations United is a powerful indictment against the United Nations.
While the UN turns a blind eye towards the atrocities in Rwanda, Sudan, China, Saudi Arabia, et al, it is obsessed with condemning Israel.

I am not going to repeat what other reviews have already written, which is all true and accurate.

The bottom line is that every American and everyone who loves democracy should read this book. It will show you that the tyranny of the UN is alive and well, and as millions of people are being killed and women raped, all the UN can do is blame Israel.

Think of it this way: The UN has never condemned China for human rights abuse.

The UN has never sanctioned China about its lacks of basic human rights.
Enough said.
