In the name of Allah, the merciful, the beneficent
Today's international institutions and organizations, rather than serving the nations, are instruments of the hands of the super powers to legitimize their aggressive policies and to keep the public's minds silenced.
In recent years, the United Nations has launched so much propaganda for the Sustainable Development Document known as “Document 2030”, and many of the country's leaders have signed it at the General Assembly meeting. It is said that it contains seventeen main goals and “One hundred and sixty-nine special purposes,” and according to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon: “This is the agenda promised by the various leaders of the world to bring development to the countries all over the world.” This document is an agenda for the people and for the planet, our common home, supposedly ending poverty in all its forms. Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General stresses the importance of this document and considers that as a holy charter and its objectives as the prosperity and happiness for all nations, and its results are described as having a world without poverty. Without mentioning the nature of these goals and outcomes, I would just list them below as a reminder:
The main goals of sustainable development agreed upon by 193 countries are:
List of adopted SDGs1
Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

Goal 16: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
Goal 17: Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
Assuming we have no problem with any of these goals, let us take a look at these goals again and review a few questions:
1. Does the Saudi-imposed war on the Yemeni people not expose them to poverty and hunger?! Isn’t the health of the Yemeni people, especially children, in jeopardy?!
2-Aren’t the Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar subjected to racial prejudice? Haven’t these displaced people been in serious danger in terms of health and food security?!
3. Does the destruction of 1,600 schools during the thousand days of the Arab aggression of the Saudi regime not threaten the achievement of education in Yemen? Or perhaps you consider it as improvement of the quality of education?!
4. Is the support, supply and sale of military weapons to aggressive states such as the Zionist regime, the coward Saudi Arabia government, the anti-people government of Bahrain, and so on, a way to promote peace and justice, or to destroy peace and justice? !!
5- is supporting terrorist groups such as ISIS, Al-Nasrat, Mojahedin-e Khalq and Buku Haram group and dozens of other militant terrorist groups around the world, guaranteeing peace and justice or destroying peace and justice ?!
6. Has increased poppy cultivation in the United States occupied territories, such as in Afghanistan, brought about agricultural development and food security, or just destruction of cultivated lands?
We should ask the UN Secretary-General: What has been the action taken by UN agencies, such as UNESCO, UNICEF, the Commission on Human Rights, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the FAO, and the World Health Organization, in relation to all such aggressions, destructions and slaughters?!!!
A little reflection on the answers to these questions suggests that, even if we suppose that these international institutions are not the tools on the hands of the super powers for performing their will, they are not even beneficial to peace and justice or even confronting the invasion of the super powers!
