UN HUMAN RIGHTS; More Chutzpa Than Any Group

Nadene Goldfoot
Sudan is scheduled to be on the Human Rights Council in the UN.  Their president, Omar Al-Bashir was indicted for genocide by the International Criminal Court and they have won a seat on this UN's Human Rights Council.   Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General  and Navi Pillay, High Commissioner for Human Rights from South Africa,  have been urged to speak  out against this country.  So have Hillary Clinton and the EU's Catherine Ashton.  

What else is crazy about this Human Rights election?  Syria will be on it in 2014 and the USA failed to get the council to pass a condemnation for this country.

Libya's Col. Muammar Qaddafi, who won by a landslide,  chaired the body in 2003 and reelected as a member in 2010 is the one being replaced with Sudan's representative.

Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch feels the cause of human rights will be severely damaged if the Sudanese regime wins a seat, but I feel the council already has damaged itself with its past history.  They have some standards that countries need to have in order to sit in this position and they are being ignored.  Those who judge others are the worst human rights offenders.  Are we living in Chelm?  This is obscene.

And this is the elite body ready to judge Israel.  Heaven help us.  It is the Sudanese who have invaded Israel escaping from the horrors of their country and came by the droves through Egypt.  Sudan, in Africa, has a population about 43,939,598 of which 70% are Sunni Muslims.  It is the 8th largest Muslim majority country in the world.
