Unfunctionally Nutty: Outrage as Syria Stays on UN Human Rights Body


In addition to this senseless decision, the “we-seek-to-be-Sharia-compliant-and-never-hurt-Muslim-feelings” United Nations has called upon the US military to punish the Qur’an burners for their “grave mistake.” It has appointed “let’s-turn-South-Korea-into-a-sea-of-fire” North Korea to head a conference on disarmament. It has appointed “let’s-stone-even-pregnant-women-to death-for-adultery” Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women. I think it’s high time for “still-equipped-with-a-smidgen-of-common-sense-and-dignity” countries to do what should have been done long ago and withdraw all funding for this useless organization. Otherwise, they might consider doing something else completely cockeyed, such as praising Libya’s “charged-and-wanted-for-war-crimes” dictator Muammar Gaddafi and his regime for its exceptionally good human rights record. Oh, wait

By Jessica Elgot – “Campaigners have called a Unesco vote to keep Syria on the human rights committee a ‘lingering stain on the UN as a whole.’

The UN’s education, science and culture agency voted to keep Syria on its human rights committee, despite protests from the US and the UK. Syria will keep its seat on the Unesco board and human rights panel. The vote was 35 for, eight against, with 14 abstentions and one absent at the meeting in Paris today.

Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based UN Watch, said: ‘For Unesco to keep President Bashar al-Assad on a human rights committee while his regime mercilessly murders its own people is simply immoral, indefensible and an insult to Syria’s victims. While today’s text rightly condemns Syria’s violations — a welcome first for Unesco — the promised call to oust the regime from Unesco’s human rights panel has been completely excised.’

‘We’re left with words, but no teeth. By maintaining Assad in a position of global influence on human rights, Unesco today is sending absolutely the wrong message. It an unconscionable insult to the suffering people of Syria.

‘The world squandered a golden opportunity to expose the Assad regime’s lack of legitimacy. Politics simply trumped human rights, with too many Unesco diplomats fearing that if Syria were removed for its violations, many of them would be next.'” Read more.

Why Does U.N. Human Rights Council Turn A Blind Eye to Terrorism? – “Terrorism does not grow in a vacuum. It breeds on a ground of hatred. It thrives in an atmosphere that teaches extremism, and that legitimizes violence against civilians… Let us consider the record. Over the past decade, terrorist attacks were perpetrated in New York, in London, in Madrid, in Mumbai, in Iraq and in Jerusalem. These attacks, and many more, were carried out in the name of an extremist religious ideology. Thousands of innocents were killed. How many urgent sessions did this Council convene to condemn these atrocities? Not one. How many inquiries were created? Not one. How many resolutions were adopted in response to these attacks? Not one. Instead, when justice was served on Osama Bin Laden, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay questioned this act.” Read more.

    Ok, I’m trying to absorb all this. So, the U.N. is helping to set up Sharia Law in for sure the middle east, and parts of the rest of the world. Coming to a theater near us I’m sure. I find no other sensible explanation for this! Not to mention that it fulfills a hand full of prophecy! Especially Daniel 7 verse 25. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time. I for one do not even hardly recognize our laws, and customs any more they are changing so fast. I’m still looking up! I’m still praying for all our brothers and sisters, but especially in the middle east, and I’m also asking for the Holy Spirit to show himself to them so they may know the way.

    Revelation 18:3, “For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

    Where would we be without Arab oil …
