A rogues’ gallery of human rights abusers

President of Sudan, Omar al-Bashir (Photo: Jesse B. Awalt)

Earlier this month, we learned that Syria had been nominated to a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council. Now, we can all relish the thought of Sudan also being up for a seat on the Council. That’s right, Sudan — run by Omar al-Bashir, a man indicted in the International Criminal Court for genocide, and the person most directly responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of people in Darfur.

The candidacies of Syria and Sudan will now go for a vote before the General Assembly as a closed slate – meaning the General Assembly will have to vote all members of the slate up or down as a group. No closed slate has ever been rejected by the General Assembly and UN watchers don’t expect this one to be. Which means Syria (currently killing its own people by the thousands) and Sudan (which spent the past decade killing its own people by the hundreds of thousands) will probably spend the next three years sitting in judgment of human rights abuses of free, open, democratic societies like…you guessed it…Israel.

The U.S., to our credit, has opposed the nominations of Syria and Sudan to the Human Rights Council (although, if you look at a list of the countries on the Council, it’s rather clear that they fit in much better than we do with other Council  members). But it really is well past time that the Obama Administration do the only honorable thing and withdraw our participation in this rogue’s gallery of human rights abusers.

    As a Christian woman I stand with Israel for she is our sister in ‘ONE NATION UNDER GOD.’ We share the same fate as Israel if we do not stop this demonic order of things in our own nation. The GOD of all mankind will not be mocked. It comes down to ‘what GOD has spoken, HE has spoken and HE will not excuse Himself.’ So stand
    with Israel we must or surely we also will be destroyed from off of the face of the Earth. Shalom.

    We know that Obama is a Muslim and doesn’t like Israel, but he pretented to like Israel which we all know it is not true. What’s make me laugh is when he went to Israel, and Put a Yamaka (Kippa). Shame on him. He went to Israel for the Palestinian. He needs to show his true self.

    A brothel, which has become United Nations, Sodom and Gomorrah. As can be set to debate a person when they have become complicit in the bloodshed, is to soak in the bath of blood ? HYPOCRITES

    In my heart of hearts, I am happy that God himself is the righteous judge of all peoples and all nations and I am not in any way to be construed as passing any judgement on this bunch, but rather stating a fact. They are and always have been from the beginning, the biggest union of liars and hypocrits that ever lived. The people that they are proposing, do not have any conception of what human rights consist of. Nor will they ever, because all they have ever espoused is murder of their own. How can any sane person even remotely consider this as anything but totally ridiculous? This should tell the rest of the world what a total farce that not only the General Assembly, but the whole United Nations as a whole, really is, but the world has been fed such a load of “politically correct garbage” by these people and the Obama led government, that most of them do not even know the difference anymore. Truthfully speaking, the vast majority have become so complacent, that most don’t know or realize the difference anymore and this is sad, for this nation and all right thinking and God fearing people worldwide.

    I am at a loss for words to know the UN could give Siria and Sudan a place on the council. This has become a joke. It is a well known fact that the only agenda these countries have is to destroy Israel. What an act of ignorance on the part of the U.N. Israel has given and given to the point where there is nothing more to give , these people and because of that Israel is more hated than before. There is never protection for the State of Israel under the U.N. nothing to say with the presence of these two known enemies especially of Israel and the United States.

    God said i will bless those who bless Israel and i will curse those who curse Israel.The U.N. has no right to accuse anyone of human rights violation when they are guilty themselves.

    With Obama’s pandering to Muslim dominated countries, it’s obvious that neither he nor the State Dept. will oppose any nominations by these nations. The UN and all of its committees is a farce.

    We as an Americans best protect Israel at all cost, if we want to be bless by God and especially out of respect and love for the Jewish Nation.

    I personally think the appointment of both Syria and Sudan to the human rights council is a dangerous move. How can nations such as these two even be up for consideration when one looks at their track-record for many years. Those rulers are barbaric dictators with a completely different mind-set then those of us that are in a democracy. They are UNCIVILIZED in their actions.

      I think the answer to your question is found in the blog text here: “it’s rather clear that they fit in much better than we do with other Council members”.

    THE U.N. HAS BEEN MAKING FOOLS OUT OF ALL OF US FOR MANY YEARS. IT IS TIME THAT STOPPED! WE NEED TO KICK THEM OUT OF OUR COUNTRY AND LET THEM SEE HOW NICE THEY WILL BE TREATED BY ONE OF THE OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE SUDAN, SYRIA OR IRAN. HOW ABOUT PUTTING THEIR PRECIOUS U.N. BUILDING IN TEHERAN?

Rabbi's Commentary
God Is Present This Holy Season

Even as efforts for peace seem to be at an impasse all around the world, the Passover story can give us hope and affirmation that God is always present in our lives, and even when situations seem impossible, He is working in ways we cannot imagine.
