The Ridiculous UN Human Rights Council...

This organization should just be shut down...
What do these have in common: genocide in Darfur; child soldiers in Chad and Congo; compulsory sterilization of women in China; suppression of dissent in Cuba, Iran, Syria and Russia; rape as a political weapon in Zimbabwe; sex trafficking in Asia; denial of human rights to minorities and women in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries?

Answer: None of those gross abuses has drawn the notice of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

No, the council has had other matters to attend to, the vast majority of which focused on Israel. Pretty much whenever an Israeli soldier has responded to terrorism, the group has cranked out a formal condemnation. Twenty in less than three years.

But now the council has broadened its portfolio. It has turned to brainstorming over the ills likely to flow from the global economic meltdown - meaning, let's figure out how to heap blame on the U.S. It also has decried the human rights threat posed by global warming, declaring:

"The inundation and disappearance of small island States would have implications for the right to self-determination."

Take that, global warming.

As for female genital mutilation in Africa - who cares?

The majority of the UN is made of dictatorships, brutal regimes and basket cases. What can we expect of a council made of that kind of delegate pool?

The UN is a disgrace that I have been ashamed of Canada for belonging to for a long long time.
When will we in Canada get our morals back and quit belonging to groups like this just because it's popular with the less than intelligent in the country?
