Genocidal Muslim State Elected to UN Human Rights Body

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Do you know what the difference is between Charles Manson and a UN human rights official? Charles Manson didn’t wear a suit.

UN Watch, the Geneva-based non-governmental human rights group condemned today’s U.N. election of “genocidal, misogynistic and repressive” Sudan to its 54-member Economic and Social Council

“Sudan, whose leader was indicted by the International Criminal Court for genocide and crimes against humanity, will now help choose the members of the Commission on the Status of Women, the executive of UN Women, and UNICEF, which protects children’s rights,” said Neuer.

ECOSOC decides which nations will sit on, among others, the UN’s Commission for Social Development, the Commission on the Status of Women, the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the Executive Board of the United Nations Children’s Fund and the Executive Board of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.

That seems about right, considering that Sudan’s Janjaweed Rape Squads were a deliberate policy of war. But let’s zoom in a little more on INGSOC, I mean ECOSOC,

ECOSOC has broad responsibility for some 70% of the human and financial resources of the entire UN system, including 14 specialized agencies, 9 “functional” commissions, and five regional commissions

Should the United States be providing the funding for this 70 percent? That’s one of those issues that a genuinely conservative Republican candidate might want to bring to the American people.

    Once again, the UN is showing its ignorance and carelessness to human rights. The Islamist dictatorship in Sudan is a racist, sexist theocracy that behaves worse than South Africa's former apartheid regime. Sudan should be boycotted and isolated instead of being appointed to any organization.

    The UN is a joke!

    I knew the UN has been existing in Bizarro-world all this time, so this is no surprise. That doesn't make it any less incomprehensible and disgusting, though.

    “The wave”: not just in the USA, but now worldwide post election, evil realizes empowerment and arises with the chant “You CAN’T stop us!”.

    "That’s one of those issues that a genuinely conservative Republican candidate might want to bring to the American people."

    Republicans had the opportunity to bring all this up during the campaign; they elected not to. No mention of US funding to the UN, its involvement in the Human Rights Council, the Law of the Sea, or the coming threat to internet freedoms if we transfer authority from ICANN to the UN's International Telecommunications Union.

    Why nobody named him? His illustrious name is Omar al-Bashir. No wonder if he can help to select members of the Commission on the status of women. Iran is already a member of that commission and when that happened Susan Rice, the US ambassador to the UN did not pose her veto because she was absent. No wonder!!
