United Nations Human Rights Council Stacked Against Israel

Nadene Goldfoot
Almost a third, 32% or 15 nations of the UN's Human Rights Council which is made up of 47 nations are countries with a Sunni Muslim majority.  It is the Muslim Brotherhood, led by Qaradawi of Qatar who is calling for the destruction of Israel and the death of all Jews in the world.  6 of these countries are African states.  9, in bold, are Asian states (Middle East and Far East)

Members serve for 3 years but the years are staggered.  For instance, Indonesia's term ends in 2014.  Maldives term ends in 2013. 

1  Indonesia with a population of 228,582,000 with 86.1% Sunnis.

The Human Rights Council actually was started on December 10, 1948 with preliminary plans that commenced in 1946 right after the 2nd World War.  With 18 nation members, Eleanor Roosevelt, then a widow, worked on the draft of Resolution 217A which was a plan to recognize the rights of everyone everywhere.  56 member states passed it in 1948 with 8 nations abstaining;  USSR, Ukranian SSR, Byelorussian SSR, Yugoslavia, Poland, South Africa, Czechoslovakia and Saudi Arabia.  It is not a legally binding law but is considered a customary International law and has had several admendments  since then. 

Original Article 2.

"•Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty."

The 48 majority Muslim states in the world have over a billion people in an area 672 times the size of Israel.  They have been completely intolerant of Israel, the only Jewish state in the world and which also happens to be the only Democratic state in the Middle East. 

1.4 million Arabs are citizens of Israel.  They have chosen their own political groups and there are Arabs serving in the knesset. They have freedoms yet unknown in any Arab nation.   Yet Jews are not allowed in Arab countries today.  A recent earthquake in Iran caused them to call for people to help, but they let it be known that they didn't want any Jews helping them.

Jews once had 2 states; Judah and Israel.  The first king of the Jewish kingdom was Saul in 1020 BCE.  King David ruled 11004-965 BCE and then King Solomon ruled 965-930 BCE.  Arabs did not enter the land until the 7th century CE, 2,500 years after Jews had been there.  They entered with the sword, not an olive branch.  The sword has turned into missiles, mortars and rockets; now a possible atomic  or chemical weapon. 

"I will bless those who bless you, and him who curses you I will curse; and by you all the families of the earth shall bless themselves" (Genesis 12:2-3). One can see that Israel is following the expectations of the Human Rights Charter.  They do have the right of self protection.  One cannot follow the Muslim Brotherhood charter and Human Rights at the same time.
