      Korea ought to be ignored and attention turned to Israel and its many longstanding violations of UN Resolutions. Afterall, does North Korea constantly attack its neighbors and conduct genocide against those whose land it occupies? And what about Nuclear Norms that are supposed to apply to all nations? Solving the issue of Palestine is so much larger than the happenings in Korea, for Korea to consume so much time is pathetic.
