Email the UN…Somehow

Below is the email that I wanted to send to complain to the UN about the now much talked about false picture tweeted earlier. It is an email I can’t send because there is no one to send it to.

After seeing initially a report about this false picture written on the popular blog CiF Watch I attempted to email the woman they said was Badawi’s boss, Allegra Pacheco but it seems she left the UN some time ago. At Honest Reporting they encourage people to write to the UN directly at the following address but when I went to the site it had the following message:

“You cannot send more than 3 messages per hour. Please try again later.”

Presumably that means they can’t accept more than 3 messages per hour since I haven’t sent them any.

It seems that when it comes to accountability the UN sticks it’s head in the sand. Perhaps I should email Ban Ki Moon directly…

Anyone got any ideas?

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to call on you to ensure that Khulood Badawi is properly
censured for tweeting a picture of a dead Palestinian girl and falsely
claiming Israeli responsibility for her death.

I was not surprised when this picture once again appeared online, with the false claim of Israeli responsibility. I was however, shocked to discover that it was a UN employee who was responsible for Tweeting it.

In light of her role as an Information and Media coordinator she either made an honest mistake, in which case she is inept, or she purposely and cynically exploited a young girl’s death and her own position in order to attack Israel.

I fail to see how her position remains tenable, I hope that you will take the appropriate action.
