UN to Adopt Syrian Text Damning Israel for ‘Violating Human Rights’

There will be five other resolutions targeting Israel, and about the same number combined covering the rest of the world.

At the UN Human Rights Council on Friday, Syria accused Israel of violating the human rights of children in the Golan, while diplomats met in another chamber on the same day to discuss a Syrian-drafted resolution, to be adopted next week, entitled “Human Rights in the Occupied Syrian Golan.”

There will be five other resolutions targeting Israel, and about the same number combined covering the rest of the world.

While this year Syria did not officially present the text, its delegate sat on the dais next to his Pakistani colleague who chaired the session on behalf of the Islamic group. Not a single diplomat called out the sheer lunacy of the exercise. Rather, the EU commented that it was “committed to the protection of all, including those in the occupied Golan.” It was willing to “constructively engage on the text,” even as it noted that its proposals last year were not implemented.

Egypt said it aligned itself with the Islamic group.



Later in the day, UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer took the floor in the plenary. Here are his notes:

Mr. President,

This Council is charged with promoting and protecting the guarantees enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Today we ask: is the Council fulfilling its mission?

Let us consider the most basic right: the right to life.

As we heard this week from Amnesty International, Saudi Arabia is preparing imminently to execute seven alleged child offenders including Sarhan Al Mashayekh—who was also sentenced to be crucified over three days. Why is the Council refusing to address this in any resolution, urgent session, or even debate? [Ed. note: the Saudis executed them today by firing squad.]

Three other countries known to execute juvenile offenders are Yemen, Sudan and Iran—yet none of these situations is being addressed by any resolution.

And while there is a resolution on Iran, it is silent on child executions—and indeed the text is devoid of any documentation whatsoever of the regime’s other massive abuses, including against women, religious and ethnic minorities, and dissidents.

Finally, the Council must do far more about the thousands of children subjected to violence and death in Syria.

Now, today we just heard from the Syrian representative about human rights in the Golan Heights. This was a transparent attempt to change the subject from the dire, catastrophic human rights situation in Syria.

Sadly, this has been going on for decades. The United Nations has allowed Syria to present itself as a champion of human rights.

Indeed, a resolution was circulated today—presented by Syria—the same one that has been adopted each year by this Council, on purported human rights violations in the Golan Heights.

This text embodies all that is wrong with giving Syria a free pass. Year after year, the UN enabled Syria to portray itself as a champion of human rights.

- While Hafez al-Assad was murdering 20,000 people in Hama, in 1982, Syria was sitting here, as an elected member of the human rights commission. Two years later, it was reelected.

- A year and a half ago, Syria was elected to two human rights committees of UNESCO.

- A few weeks ago, Syria was elected Rapporteur of the decolonization committee dealing with human rights.

Mr. President,

Let us be clear: the situation in Syria today was allowed to develop, and the Syrian regime was allowed to remain in power, in part because the United Nations granted false legitimacy to this murderous regime.

Thank you, Mr. President.

  1. What else is new with the (UN) Useless Nations?

  2. and yet there has been 80000+ murders in syria….blow the un up

  3. The world is insane!

  4. John Keytack says:

    Don’t you people get it yet? Don’t you understand the type of scum we’re dealing with? If they had THEIR way Israel would cease to exist! The next step would be another Holocaust! Wake up before it’s too late!

  5. This could be serious

  6. Joe Hooker says:

    Well, I damn the U.N. for violating EVERY human right!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Joe Hooker says:

    BUT John Keytack, God said that He’s on Israel’s side!! So her enemies CAN’T win!

  8. Ethan Perks says:

    If this doesn't tell you what's wrong with the UN, you haven't got a brain.

  9. I'm amazed they can do this with a straight face

  10. Ken Kelso says:

    Let me see, 70,000 Syrians have been murdererd by Arabs killing Arabs in Syria.
    Over 1 million refugees from Syria in the last 2 years and the idiots at the U.N are condemning Israel for nothing.

    Unfortunately the UN is a playground to dictators and despots, many of whom are Arabs and frieinds of the Arabs and Iran. That is why Israel refuses to be judged by them and why the US vetos their anti Aharona Israel resolutions.
    Remember, Libya And Syria chaired the UN Human Rights Commission.

  11. The world looks to be unifying and doing so with anti-Semetic and anti-Christian view points that honestly make no reasonable sense when held up to the light of rational conversation. Honestly, when their views are proven to be illogical then they shut their ears and move ahead anyway. They shun sound council and reason. And when we give it, hate us more for it dispite having no logical reason for doing so. It's not natural,,, it's super natural. Just as God has shown us it would be in these later days.

  12. The whole world moves from trouble to trouble. 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.

    Speaking of human rights, AFRL was involved in the psychological aspects of one of the most sadistic and bizzare illegal experimentation/torture programs in U.S. History: Chet Maciag, Colonel Lamar Parker, Lt. Col Bill Gregory: http://usgovt-atrocities.com.

  14. Why do we keep begging the world to be sane?

  15. Adam Burman says:

    The official figure just passed 100K dead, I think.

  16. When a people go against God, he eventually hands them over to a reprobate mind, meaning a mind that cannot decern what is in it's own best interest. That is part of what is going on with this. It seems illogical to blame Israel as they only act for self defense, while the Arabs who cause this problem go blameless. The whole world moves from trouble to trouble. 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.

    And this is news why?

  18. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    And this is a surprise why? The "UNHRC" includes such bastions of freedom as Libya, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran and other noted shari'a compliant countries rights are heralded, especially the quranic rights to behead, stone, honor murder and engage in random acts of genocide. And in response, obama has demanded Congress provide more funding to them.
