Corrupt Racist Country Run by Terrorist to Head United Nations World Tourism Organisation


Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe gives a speech during the burial of Sunny Ntombiyelanga Takawira-1553625

The United Nations is nothing if not predictable. If there’s a women’s rights post, it’ll be a toss up between Iran and Saudi Arabia. If there’s a free press position, it’ll go to China.

The United Nations World Tourism Organisation? The choice is obvious. Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe is run by Mugabe, a thug and a terrorist running on a racist platform of voter intimidation and land seizures. After destroying the national currency, the African version of Detroit found that it’s running short on tourists.

Since Mugabe began seizing land from white farmers and handing it over to his cronies, tourism dropped by 75%. Less than 20% of hotel rooms are occupied. This is a problem as tourism is about the only part of Zimbabwe’s economy that still worked after Mugabe destroyed its agriculture.

So bring on the tourists.

The non-governmental human rights group UN Watch expressed “grave disappointment” at the UN decision to make Zimbabwe co-host of a global tourism summit, which opens tomorrow, saying it’s a “disgraceful show of support — and a terribly-timed award of false legitimacy — for a brutal, corrupt and authoritarian regime.”

Zimbabwe will now become co-president, together with Zambia, of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) until 2015.

“Amid reports of election-rigging and ongoing human rights abuses, Zimbabwe is the last country that should be legitimized by a UN summit of any kind,” said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer.

I suppose it’s the last country after Somalia, Iran, Syria, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia and most of the rest of the United Nation’s democracy of dictators.

How exactly will everyone get to Zimbabwe?

Several airlines have also pulled out of Zimbabwe. Australia’s Qantas, Germany’s Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines were among the first to pull out and most recently British Airways suspended all direct flights to Harare. The country’s flagship airline Air Zimbabwe still flies to the United Kingdom but has to make several stops en route for refuelling.

Let’s talk about Air Zimbabwe, which is almost as functional as the rest of the country.

In February 2004, it was revealed that Air Zimbabwe had been temporarily suspended by International Air Transport Association (IATA) over unpaid debts. A foreign exchange crisis in the country led to the cancellation of the carrier’s operations in late 2005, following the lack of hard currency to pay for the fuel.

It was informed in February 2011 that the airline temporarily suspended its flights to Johannesburg over likely impoundments of its planes by creditors due to unpaid debts

It was disclosed in 2006 that passenger numbers had fallen from 1 million in 1999 to 23,000 in 2005.

In late October 2006, the prices of Air Zimbabwe tickets increased up to 500%, partly due to the inflation in the country rising to over 1,000%

Air Zimbabwe ceased operations in late February 2012. Serving a reduced domestic network, the carrier resumed operations for a short period between May and early July 2012, when flights were again discontinued. Some flights were restarted on a discontinuous basis in November that year. The airline resumed operating some domestic routes as well as the regional service to Johannesburg on a daily basis in April 2013.

As of January 2012, it was 100%-owned by the Government of Zimbabwe.

Shocker. A 100 percent gov owned airline that’s all but bankrupt. Air Zimbabwe even had one of its planes seized in the UK.

More than 200 Air Zimbabwe passengers remain stranded at Gatwick Airport on the ‘Victorian Falls’ aircraft, following the seizure of one of the carrier’s aircraft by an American aviation services company to which it owed money. 12th December 2011

The long haul aircraft Boeing 767-200 Air Zimbabwe plane known as Victoria Falls which flew the London to Harare has been reported imponded at Gatwick Airport.

Once rated as one of the best airlines in Africa, Air Zimbabwe trying to gain its past glory but has beebn marred by on going strikes and unpaid debts. Aviation firm, American General Supplies (AGS) secured a court injunction in the US that gave them the power to impound the aircraft over US$ 1, 2 million debt.

Air Zimbabwe never had any glory. Air Rhodesia did.

Still pondering flying the unfriendly Mugabe skies?

The pilot’s voice came over the loudspeaker. “We’re all ready to go ladies and gentlemen. However, we’ve been waiting for the copilot, and he still hasn’t arrived. Since we’ve already waited so long, we’re just going to be flying without a copilot today.”

Once we reached cruising altitude, the pilot made another announcement. “Ladies and gentlemen, I am going to use the bathroom. I have put the plane on auto-pilot, and everything will be fine. I just don’t want you to worry.” That said, he came out of the cockpit and fastened the door open with a rubber band to a hook in the wall. Then he went into the bathroom.

Suddenly, we hit a patch of turbulence. Nothing much, the cabin just shook a little for a moment. But the rubber band holding the cockpit door open snapped off with a loud “ping!” and went sailing down the aisle. The door promptly swung shut.

A moment later, the pilot came out of the bathroom. When he saw the closed door, he stopped cold. It slowly dawned on me that our pilot was locked out of the cockpit.

After a moment of contemplation, the pilot hurried to the back of the plane. He returned holding a big ax. Without ceremony, he proceeded to chop down the cockpit door.

Come to Zimbabwe. You probably won’t die. Maybe. At least not until Mugabe decides you should. Or this guy.

    Is there anyone out there who thinks the UN is NOT the most corrupt, despicable, criminal organisation on the planet?

    • Gee

      Yes they have lots of the competition – the Arab League, OIC, EU, Russia, Turkey, and China any of them are equally as bad if not worse

      • chan chan

        All the countries and organisations you list have a big hand in the UN.

    “Since Mugabe began seizing land from white farmers and handing it over to his cronies…” And what preceded the land seizures? A veritable race war against whites, including murders, rapes, “reverse discrimination” against whites, burning fields of crops, slaughtering farm animals, mass “squat-ins,” and sending in veterans of the Rhodesian war to terrorize farmers. Pull no punches. Mugabe is an empowered Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

    • KudzaiKazonga

      Did those pink people bring land to Zimbabwe from Europe?

      • DogmaelJones1

        Dear Kudso: No, the “pink people” didn’t bring land from Europe. What they brought was the value of that land that had been overlooked for centuries by tribalists, just as oil had been overlooked by Arabs for centuries, until the West put a value on it. Otherwise, the Arabs would still be slaughtering each other over it (as they are still doing).

        • KudzaiKazonga

          Oh, how paternalistic and pathetic? You need psychiatric therapy Dog. I know your sinister kind. With that twisted and discredited logic, you slaughter, Arabs, Africans, Aborigines, Red Indians, etc for their resources? Every fool from the West claims to be Isaac Newton, Shakespeare, Adam Smith, etc, but with your half-baked reasoning you cant fool anyone pinkie.

          • DogmaelJones1

            Mr. Kudzu: So, you’re a racist, employing racist slang such as “pinkie.” Why don’t you add “honkie” or “pecker,” or some other hateful, disgusting term from the black racist lexicon? And, you’re obviously a troll, looking to pick a fight. Well, go look for it elsewhere. I’m not interested.

          • KudzaiKazonga

            You are very right. Nowhere, in this world westerners are regarded as saviours. So you better shut up your paternalistic big mouth and you leave Zimbabwe to those with moral ground to talk from.

          • DogmaelJones1

            Well, come on over here,you thug. I’ll put a bullet through your thick skull. Mugabe should’ve been assassinated a decade ago. He’s a killer for the sake of killing. Don’t talk to me about “moral.”

          • J Bright

            And every Marxist fool romanticizes non-whites (except Jews, of course) and turns them into noble beings resisting their awful white oppressors. Get real, dude. World history (if you ever study it objectively) is filled with stronger groups killing weaker ones, everyone enslaving anyone they could, and the spoils going to the victors. If someone else had produced superior technology and organized social structures rather than the Europeans you can bet they would have used it in the same manner. You are no better than the ‘pinkies’ blackie.

          • KudzaiKazonga

            Yes, you are right, but the catch which you are missing is what is in store for the colonial victors from the regrouping vanquished. Zimbabwe is already intensifying the restorative way. I hope you will get it soon. It is a matter of time for the stage is set.

  • M.T. Aziz

    “Racist country run by terrorist.” I figured the author was referring to “Israel,” but then it’s not a legitimate country.

    • Gee

      I figured that the statement was written by a rational human being, but then it’s a piece of sh*t

    • Moa

      According to the United Nations it is. Just because you don’t like reality does not make your unreality true.

      Israel is a legitimate country. Too bad the Palestinians are so full of hate they are more interested in committing genocide rather than trying to make a legitimate country for themselves.

      You idiots will never learn.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bryan-Schmick/100000836170959 Bryan Schmick

      PA lobs grenades into Israeli school busses and then hides in hospitals. The Israelis respond so that makes them terrorists.

      The PA vows death to all Jewish people while the Israelis were the first country to give Arabs the right to vote. That makes Israelis terrorists.

      The Israelis agree to release terrorists to PA custody for the simple pleasure of being called subhuman by the PA.

      The list goes on and on.

      What is it about you that has so much hatred? Does your religion encourage hatred? Have the Sunnis killed more Shiites than the Shiites killed Sunnis?

      Who are you trying to convince that Islam is a religion of peace while its’ most vocal adherents spew hatred and death every chance they get?

    • DogmaelJones1

      It’s a legitimate country, Mr. Aziz, and the only legitimate country over there. All the rest, including Saudi Arabia, Syria, Jordan, are bastards of the West’s post-WWI folly.

  • u2u2u2

    The pilot chopping the door down with an ax was the funniest thing I’ve read in quite some time.

    When I saw the headline, I figured that the US would be heading the UN tourism meeting. After all:

    Corrupt – we have a president and many members of congress that funnel money to people that keep them in power.

    Racist – we have a president that was elected and then re-elected solely on the color of his skin vs the content of his character or any experience that would make him a good fit.

    Run by a terrorist – we have a president that supports terrorist organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood every chance he gets and protects terrorists in his country.

    But then I realized this is the UN and they would never let the country that meets and enforces all it’s goals head a meeting.

  • J Bright

    Mugabe should face a firing squad. He’s a fascist. This bastard is going to die without ever being brought to justice for his crimes against humanity.

  • J Bright

    Why are my comments being censored?

  • J Bright

    Mugabe is a fascist. He should have faced a firing squad a long time ago for crimes against humanity.

    • KudzaiKazonga

      And Smith was cannibal?

  • ytdontplay

    “fear of a black planet?” Yes indeed.

  • KudzaiKazonga

    Let the tourism drop 100%, for our land is our land not for some pink supremacists masquerading as human rights activists. Mind you, the discourse reveals the mind of the author rather than that of Comrade Mugabe. The author is ruthless and sadistic, but African will overcome these neo-colonial paternalism wrapped in disguise as a genuine concern. Where were these saints when Rhodesian apartheid was stealing land from the indigenous people?

  • KudzaiKazonga

    Pamberi nechimurenga! Pasi nemabhunu!

  • Ed Melik, Esq.

    Daniel Greenfield is a Zionist shill of NeoCon AIPAC. Let’s see one can find any criticism of all the crimes of Israel! I doubt you’ll find one line he wrote against the diabolical crimes against humanity by the criminal Israel! This would tell you whose bitch he is!

  • Campbell Bonthron

    The story about the pilot being locked out of the Air Zimbabwe flight cockpit was published by the Chicago Tribune in 1999 but they later admitted it was a fabrication. However, you’re right about Air Zim. being in a mess
