The United Nations is facing intense criticism following the revelation that it chose Saudi Arabia as the head of an influential human rights panel. The kingdom was quietly selected in June to chair the UN Human Rights Council’s five-nation Consultative Group, which appoints applicants for 75 key human rights monitors around the world. The Saudis lost a bid earlier this year to chair the 47-nation UN Human Rights Council itself.
With its penchant for executing non-violent criminals, torturing suspects and suppressing women and religious minorities, the Saudis are considered by many to have one of the world’s worst human rights record. UN Watch, a non-governmental monitoring group that first reported the appointment, called the move “scandalous,” alleging that “the UN chose a country that has beheaded more people this year than ISIS to be head of a key human rights panel.” Alexandra El Khazen, a representative from Reporters Without Borders, said the appointment was “outrageous” and “grotesque.”
An excerpt from, “United Nations Farce: Saudi Arabia to Head UN Human Rights Council” by Felicity Arbuthnot, Global Research, September 24, 2015:
The “crown jewels” have been handed to a country with one of the worst human rights records in the world. Saudi Arabia will head a Consultative Group of five Ambassadors empowered to select applicants globally for more than seventy seven positions to deal with human rights violations and mandates.
In a spectacular new low for even a UN whose former Secretary General, Kofi Annan, took eighteen months to admit publicly that the 2003 invasion of, bombardment and near destruction of Iraq was illegal, UN Watch points out that the UN has chosen: “a country that has beheaded more people this year than ISIS to be head of a key Human Rights panel …” (2)
In May, just prior to the appointment, the Saudi government advertised for eight extra executioners to: “ … carry out an increasing number of death sentences, which are usually beheadings, carried out in public” (3.)
Has the United Nations lost its mind?
Saudi Arabia is the spiritual fountainhead of ISIS, so by choosing it to head a global human rights panel the U.N. is giving a big fuck you to the victims of ISIS terrorists in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and other countries.
And we have to ask ourselves, what’s next? A Grand Ayatollah serving as the Secretary General of the UN? This is absurdity. The U.N. is a sick joke of an institution. It has no legitimacy or respectability whatsoever.
And this isn’t the end of the UN’s monstrous actions. Just watch. In 2020 they’ll probably invite al-Baghdadi to the General Assembly in New York to give a religious speech alongside Pope Francis and whatever idiot is occupying the White House at that time, and thereby legitimize the barbaric and genocidal Caliphate that is coming into being thanks to the active military support of Washington, Tel Aviv, Ankara, and Riyadh.
