Syria’s campaign for UN Human Rights Council

Geneva-based human rights group UN Watch reports:

Syria is a declared candidate for the Human Rights Council, according to a U.S.-sponsored and EU-backed draft resolution that was hotly debated in informal sessions held yesterday at the 47-nation body’s headquarters in Geneva.

The U.S. and E.U. are adamant that Syria’s “failure to meet the Council’s standards for membership” should be recognized, while Russia, China, Egypt, Brazil, and Cuba believe “no action be taken until Assad’s candidacy was formally submitted.”

Despite its deplorable human rights record, Syria is currently a full member of UNESCO’S human rights complaint and human rights organization committees. If the U.S. and E.U. resolution fails, UN Human Rights Council could be added to the list.

    In regards to the land that God has promised Israel, Genesis 15:18 declares, “To your descendants [Abraham's] I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates.”

    Can’t understand the UN cause there nothing to understand, they’ll believe a lie than they would the truth. So how could anything good come from the UN, their fruitless and their actions have shown it.

    Assad should have been tried and convicted a long time ago along with all who helped in this matter. Maybe he should be put in one of his own 27 torture centers located in different places in Syria.

    We stood by along with the rest of the world and watched this atrocity. Talk, talk, talk, is all that was accomplished. This Annan 6 point peace plan is a joke. Assad laughs at the world.

    In my opinion and probably the opinion of many others, is that Assad should have been jailed for crimes of humanity a long time ago before he killed 15,000 people.

    In my opinion they should have done away with Assad a long time ago.This world should not have stood by and watched him shoot down in cold blood innocent unarmed people. This is an atrocity.

    Regadless of how many time Syria will declare candidates for Human Right, they will keep killing each other because the killing is in their blood and they don’t know how to live otherwise.

    HAJI HILLARY speaks and says, Assad must go. Liberal Progressive translation. Out with Assad in with the Muslin Brotherhood and decapitations.

    I think we should mind our own Bussiness. Let him kill everyone in his Country and rule over the Graveyard. It is cause we use our foreign Aide to these Dictators that empower them. We should cut off from the United Nation, cause they are corrupt in my opion. We are not the Police of the World, but the United Nations uses us like we are. Why do we spill our blood for those in another country that do not care for us.Let him do what he feels best without our money and military being involved. I for one do not care anymore.

      Yes Gordon, I agree. The UN is nothing but a socialist government group standing ready to govern over the “New World Order” that is on the brink of coming to fruition. Bible prophecy in action……

      Gord: Assad is the lesser of two evils. If the world allows him to kill his people without interceding, then the Muslim Brotherhood steps in. That’s not something we want.

      I totally agree with you gordon. We need to take care of our own backyard and stop playing in the backyards of others.

Rabbi's Commentary
Clarity in a Confused World

In response to this week’s horrific terrorist attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded with a voice of moral clarity. We, as people of faith and conscience, must all cling to such clarity in a world so often ruled by moral confusion.
