Is the UN a plausible organisation?
Reader comment on: Hamas' Phony Statistics on Civilian Deaths

Why is the UN so concerned with Hamas and Israel. It seems that Israel is an easy target. The numbers involved are miniscule compared to this group of humanity being "sheltered" by the UN.
At least 40,000 people who fled fighting in South Sudan are staying in horrific conditions at a UN camp, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) says.
Many were living in knee-deep, sewage-contaminated floodwater with some sleeping standing up with children in their arms, the medical charity said.
MSF urged the UN to move the worst-affected to drier land in Bentiu.
Fighting between government and rebel troops has displaced at least 1.5 million people since December.
The UN is yet to respond to MSF's criticism.
Bentiu has changed hands several times since the crisis began and thousands of people have sought refuge in the UN camp in the town, situated in oil-rich Unity State.
With the onset of rains, MSF says the already harsh and overcrowded conditions in the camp have now become deplorable.
