If it were a movie, it would be hilarious, but it is real and tragedy. One could find the positive side and say that the U.N. Human Rights Council provides volumes of evidence for historians to record for future generations that twisted minds did not die with Hitler.
Here are a few choice comments made at the so-called Human Rights Council Monday:
Saudi Arabia: My country, we are based on Islamic Sharia, which upholds human rights.
Venezuela: My country is a model of political tolerance….All people may express their opinions and criticisms freely.
Iran: We are alarmed by horrendous acts of religious and racial hatred in different parts of the world, in particular in Western societies.
The U.N. Human Rights Council keeps most of its workers employed by their spreading blood libels against Israel. CAMERA pointed out that on the same day that the Council heard the above comments, provided by a Twitter follower, Saudi Arabia “recorded its 100th beheading two weeks shy of the mid-year.”
Apparently, the Saudis are on a record pace. The majority of those decapitated are said to be murderers and drug offenders, however, apostasy is also listed as a capital offense. The executions are usually carried out in public.
The Council’s obsession with Israel has been so widely-document that perhaps, just perhaps, it is beginning to repent.
The United Nations reported Monday on remarks made by Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, High Commissioner for Human Rights, at the 29th session of the Geneva-based Human Rights Council:
[Syria is] the ‘most mind-numbing humanitarian crisis of our era’….
In addition to the situation in neighboring Iraq, where the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) continues to perpetrate the most ‘despicable abuses,’ Zeid talked about Libya, where armed groups continue to engage in violent clashes using heavy weaponry, and indiscriminate shelling of residential neighborhoods.
Zeid then ticked off countries where attention should be paid to human rights: Libya, Yemen, Somalia, Nigeria, Mali, Egypt, Azerbaijan, Burundi, Russia, South Sudan, and Venezuela.
Note that Iran and Saudi Arabia were not specifically mentioned, but that is not the end of the list.
The U.N. report did not conclude without stating, “He also expressed concern about the situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.”
He meant the Palestinian Authority, right?
