What country deserves more condemnation for violating human rights than any other nation on earth? According to the U.N.’s top human rights body, that would be Israel. Last week, Israel was the U.N.’s number one women’s rights violator. This week it is the U.N.’s all-round human rights villain. The U.N. Human Rights Council wrapped up its latest session in Geneva on Friday, March 27 by adopting four resolutions condemning Israel. That’s four times more than any of the other 192 UN member states. There were four resolutions on Israel. And one on North Korea — a country that is home to government policies of torture, starvation, enslavement, rape, disappearances, and murder – to name just some of its crimes against humanity. Four resolutions on Israel. And one on Syria. Where the death toll of four years of war is 100,000 civilians, ten million people are displaced, and barrel bombs containing chemical agents like chlorine gas are back in action. Four resolutions on Israel. And one on Iran. Where there is no rule of law, no free elections, no freedom of speech, corruption is endemic, protestors are jailed and tortured, religious minorities are persecuted, and pedophilia is state-run. At last count, in 2012 Iranian courts ordered more than 30,000 girls ages 14 and under to be “married. And what did that one resolution on Iran say? Co-sponsored by the United States, it was labelled a “short procedural text,” consisting of just three operative paragraphs that contained not a single condemnation of Iran. The Israel resolutions, on the other hand, were full of “demands,” “condemns,” “expresses grave concern,” and “deplores” – along with orders to “cease immediately” a long list of alleged human rights violations. Ninety percent of states – inhabited by 6.6 billion people – got no mention at all. Countries like China, Qatar, Russia, and Saudi Arabia. For the UN, there was not one human rights violation worthy of mention by any of these human rights horror shows. Why not? For starters, China, Qatar, Russia and Saudi Arabia are all members of the UN Human Rights Council. Actually protecting human rights is not a condition of being elected to the Council, and thereby transforming into a UN authority on what counts as a human rights violation. The Cubans successfully engineered a Council resolution on protecting “cultural rights” – minus free expression. The Palestinians – whose unity government includes the terrorist group Hamas – co-sponsored the resolution “effects of terrorism on the enjoyment of human rights.” The Organization of Islamic Cooperation – representing states where converting to Christianity is subject to the death penalty – sponsored a resolution called “combating intolerance of persons based on religion or belief.” Playing at caring about human rights is the U.N. game. And no state does it better than Iran.
This makes me want to vomit. The very notion that Israel, the only democracy in the middle east, is somehow guilty of more so-called “human rights” violations than Iran, North Korea, China, Russia and other similar evil regimes would be laughable, if it weren’t so pathetic and intellectually offensive. No wonder Bibi was re-elected! The people of Israel haven’t forgotten WWII, and what they went through. And, today we see the UN for what it really is; a bunch of self-serving, dishonest, anti-semitic fascists…who want to divert attention away from THEIR own horrifying records of human rights abuses, and on to the world’s favorite pinata; Israel. Shame on us, and Obama in particular, for just going along with that and letting the worlds’ tyrants and dictators, under the umbrella of the UN, and along with the liberal media push their lies and their false narrative. It’s time to kick the UN out of NYC and send it back to Geneva…and its time that we stop funding the overwhelming majority of it’s nonsense that isn’t in our national security interests anyway.
28 people were arrested at home of Indian man in the eastern city of Khafji
Yep. These are our Islamic “friends” in the middle east. Next time you hear someone like Obama, John Kerry, or even John McCain while talking about ISIS, say how “tolerant” and peaceful Islam is, keep THIS in mind. Lets be clear, and cut through bs. There is ZERO tolerance in the Islamic community/world for other faiths/beliefs. It is illegal to even have a Bible in Saudi Arabia!
Anyway, Obama AND John Kerry SHOULD say something to King Abdullah behind closed doors, and push for the release of these Christians being persecuted for their religious beliefs.
North Korea’s Supreme Court on Sunday sentenced US citizen Matthew Miller to six years’ hard labour for “hostile” acts, two weeks after he and two other detained Americans had pleaded for help from Washington.
This is a toughy… The DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) is a brutal, evil regime that starves its people each year by the millions, and has hundreds of thousands in brutal gulag concentration camps. The country is run by a spoiled brat lunatic that doesn’t know which part of its interaction with other countries (like the USA) is an XBOX ONE video game, and which part is reality…which makes things difficult and very dangerous. Of course the Obama Administration should do everything it can to secure the release of these Americans. That said, I think this is a pretty good example of why Americans should NOT go to N. Korea to visit. Its a pretty silly, and risky, thing to do. Yeah, it IS, technically, possible to visit the DPRK. BUT, its expensive, the process takes forever, and there are a LOT of hoops to jump through…and you’re NEVER alone. Government officials are always watching. And, then weird things like this happen. Did this guy really tear up his visa? Or was he just snagged and THEY tore it up? I’m willing to bet he probably didn’t do anything, and is being used as a bargaining chip in negotiations with the Obama Administration. But, I suspect we won’t know for a while; maybe even 6 years. So, if you go to N. Korea, then I think you’re on your own…and if something like this happens, you were warned and too bad, so sad.
North Korea Rejects Int’l Human Rights Assessment; Launches Its Own Investigation, Surfing Tours
Imagine that! N. Korea is rejecting the idea that they’re a barbaric, evil dictatorship that persecutes Christians, starves its people, conducts forced abortions, and so on.. Big surprise. Not. N. Korea is all of that, and THEN some. Its starves MILLIONS of its people each year, yet it spends an ungodly amount on its defense budget each year, and threatens its southern neighbor and the U.S., among others. And, the only reason it gets away with what it does, is because its big brother to the north, communist China, is propping it up with money, trade, and weapon systems. ..which, as an aside, is yet another reason why we need to treat China as an adversary; not a “regional partner.”
