U.S. Envoy: Syria ‘Not Fit to Sit’ on UN Rights Committee

"Indefensible for Syrian regime to stand as judge of other countries."
Ambassador David Killion

Ambassador David Killion

U.S. Ambassador David T. Killion spoke out as UNESCO’s human rights committee which was assembled in Paris this week to rule on individual human rights complaints—with Syria’s Assad regime as one of its 30 judges.

The Geneva-based watchdog group UN Watch congratulated Ambassador Killion and urged UNESCO to finally expel Assad from the panel.

“It is indefensible for the Syrian regime to be allowed to stand as a judge of other countries’ human rights records,” said Ambassador Killion in response to a question by UN Watch, which heads a global campaign of more than 50 parliamentarians, human rights and religious groups calling for Syria’s expulsion.

In a statement on Thursday, UN Watch called on France, Germany, the UK, the EU and the UN to speak out and take action to remove Syria from the UN committee.

“Having the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad as a global judge of human rights is like appointing a pyromaniac to be a firefighter,” said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer. “UNESCO is allowing the Assad regime to strut in Paris as a UN human rights arbiter. That’s immoral, indefensible, and an insult to Syria’s victims.”

  4. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula and in Gaza are once again on the rise. Month by month, and week by week the middle east spins more out of control. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  5. too little to late coming from the UN. watch.

  6. George sometimes I feel that I might go to hell not because of the things that I did or said, but because of the things that I didn't do or say ….. so lets do or at least talk about what we feel is correct & what we see our rights …. even if nobody will care about us …. & it is right that "iravunk' ujne miyayn" but world is changing & nothing will stay d same, maybe we will be d next centure's power ….. toooo optimistic right :)

    YEARS into genocide and all of a sudden obama speaks out against the jihadists being on the UNHRC? Apparently obama is trying to make way so that al qaeda can replace assad.
