Never again

While I am in support of the suggestion that the UN hold a special session to mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, wouldn't it be better to mark the event by doing something about civilian populations being murdered by their governments right now? And maybe bringing to justice those guilty of genocide who are still at large?

As David Rieff has said, " 'Never again' might best be defined as 'Never again would Germans kill Jews in Europe in the 1940s.'"

And why do I envision this turning into just another opportunity for the UN to bash Israel?
