The United Nations and Terrorism

The UN wants to be taken seriously but its support in the United States is rapidly eroding. One example of why refers to its inability to get Arab states to agree upon a definition of the word 'terrorism.' Resultantly, the UN does not officially define the word. Since the concept does not officially exist, opposition to it cannot officially begin. The institution thus remains an apologist for terrorism due to what some feel is the lack of moral courage to stand-up to the Arab nations and pressure them much more strongly to come-up with a definition.
