Who can serve on the U.N. Security Council?

Except for the five permanent members, every country in the world....................except one: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/UN/uneligible.html. That's right, alone among the countries in the world, Israel is not permitted to serve on the U.N. Security Council, or any other major U.N. body. This is because Israel does not belong to any "regional group". Based purely on geography, Israel shoud be a member of the Asian bloc, but of course the Arab states would never permit that. So, Israel (with the backing of the United States) has sought membership to the bloc which includes Western Europe, Canada, Australia, etc., and even they haven't admitted it.

So, Israel is truly alone..................

We have no one to rely on except on our Father in Heaven. Israel's isolation brings the Geula closer.
