Still more UN hypocrisy
CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Mideast Reporting in America) exposes more of the ongoing hypocrisy of the UN that other media outlets won't.
"Iran leads the world in executing child offenders," CAMERA asserts. So which country was elected to UNICEF's (United Nations Children's Fund) to its leadership bureau? Why Iran of course. Yep, children across America go trick or treating on Halloween for UNICEF to enable Iran to execute other children. But Iran is in good company on UNICEF's board which includes China, of the infamous one-child policy with its attendant high infant abandonment rate, Russia, of the hellish orphanages, and Pakistan, where they pull young girls who want to be educated off buses and shoot them in the head.
Since the 1979 revolution Iranian women have been forced to cover up in public with head scarves and long coats, are not allowed to travel outside the country without the permission of their husband, father or other male guardian and are victimized by honor killings, often by stoning. So who is a member of the UN's Commission on the Status of Women? Again, why Iran of course. At CSW's recent meeting, its contribution to upgrading the status of women
there was only one country-specific resolution and it condemned - you guessed it - Israel. Iran's representative used his speech to excoriate - you guessed it - Israel. The previous year, there was also only one country-specific resolution, aimed at - you guessed it, again - Israel.
CAMERA asks the obvious,
What is the point of a council on children's rights that has a place for a country that sentences children as young as nine to death? What is the purpose of a commission on women's rights that seats a country where women are stoned to death? Where is the recognition of the hypocrisy of the United Nations and the caricature it has become? And, for heaven's sake... Where's the Coverage?
What and where indeed.
