Now why do the UN members choose to ignore this man's comments? Might they be too ashamed of the accuracy laden in his thoroughly researched statement?
For years now, I have seen the UN as an utterly useless organization, but lately, their behaviors and decisions are certainly bordering on terrorism. The UN Watch speaker includes sharp evidence to legitimize his case against the Human Rights Council, those so-called protectors of international human rights.
He begins a venerable barrage of attacks against the "criminal" Human Rights Council, declaring, "One might say in Harry Truman's words that this has become a do-nothing, good-for-nothing council -- but that would be inaccurate. This council has after all done something; it has enacted one resolution after another, condemning one single state -- Israel."
The speaker criticizes how "Hammas and Hezbollah have been granted impunity," an unthinkable regression in any viable climb towards human rights. Some of the most vocal advocates of the Human Rights Council are the Middle East dictators themselves, who would hypocritically declare that "they seek to protect human rights -- Palestinian rights," just as "the racist murderers of Darfur women care about the rights of Palestinian women."
The UN Watch representative proceeds to demonstrate how these alleged supporters of Palestinian human rights don't really even care about Palestinian rights at all -- really, their claims serve only to vilify Israel. He proves his claims by recalling the glaring events of recent months:
"More than 130 Palestinians were killed by Palestinian forces. This is THREE times the combined total that were the pretext for calling special sessions in July and November, yet the 'champions' of humans rights -- Ahmadinejad, Assad, Qadaffi, John Dugard -- say nothing ... Why has this council chosen silence? Because -- because Israel could not be blamed. Because, in truth, the despots who run this council couldn't care less about Palestinians, or about any human rights. They seek to demonize Israeli democracy, to deligitimize the Jewish state, to scapegoat the Jewish people. They also seek something else -- to distort and pervert the very language and idea of human rights."
He concludes by declaring that the current council is turning the founders' dreams into a "nightmare," and Council President Doru Costea (Romania) -- immediately dismisses the representative's statement as both false and offensive. To do anything else would be surrender, an admission that the speaker is correct.
With terrorist nations at the forefront of the council, this supposed human rights conglomerate is nothing but a two-faced cocktail party for dictators, brimming with injustice and hypocrisy. And as usual, who must they scapegoat? Why, the Jews of course. Killings fly by unnoticed, unless the deaths occur under Israeli hands. Palestinians terrorize both Israelis and each other, genocides occur in the very countries where Human Rights Council members preside and yet, the victims' voices are silenced before they can even speak.
Anyone ever wonder why neither the United States nor Israel are even members of the Human Rights Council?
