Will Iran be on the UN Human Rights Council....
Well, they would fit in, no???
The witching hour is not yet upon us — but it’s close. On May 13 the United Nations General Assembly will choose the next batch of countries to join the UN’s 47-member Human Rights Council in Geneva.
Iran has entered the running, as one of five candidates for four seats up for grabs this year by “Asian States.” (Note: Like many things at the UN, these “elections” are perversely structured from the start. The UN Human Rights Council parcels out blocs of member seats on the basis not of democracy or respect for human rights, but of region). The other four candidates are Malaysia, the Maldives, Qatar and Thailand.
