Muslim Country With 25% Slave Population Elected VP of UN Human Rights Council

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.


But look on the bright side, at least it wasn’t Sudan, Syria or Saudi Arabia.

I’m coming around to the opinion that we should do everything possible to keep the UN Human Rights Council around. Not only is it the greatest source of irony since fish in a blacksmith shop, but it’s also a living reminder that the United Nations is to human rights as an exploding train is to transportation safety.

The UN Human Rights Council met today in Geneva and elected Mauritania as its Vice-President and Rapporteur for the next year, the second highest position at the world’s top human rights body.

“It is obscene for the U.N. to use the occasion of Human Rights Day, when we commemorate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to elect the world’s worst enabler of slavery to this prestigious post,” said Hillel Neuer, UN Watch executive director.

“The U.N. is making an arsonist head of the fire department. It defies both morality and common sense.”

According to a recent report by the Guardian, “up to 800,000 people in a nation of 3.5 million remain chattels,” with power and wealth overwhelmingly concentrated among lighter-skinned Moors, “leaving slave-descended darker-skinned Moors and black Africans on the edges of society.”

UN Watch expressed regret that while the dictatorship of Belarus took the floor in today’s meeting to criticize the election of Poland, none of the democracies said a word about the election of Mauritania or Ecuador.

Of course not. No one wants to offend the Muslim world by criticizing a cultural tradition that we, with our white privilege, have no right to object to the semi-white privilege of the Mauritanian rulers.

    With so many slave owners/traders on the United Nations Human Rights Council, what could possibly go wrong? The NAACP should be proud they have one of heir own, cheer leading the UN, as a U.S. president! /Sarkmark

    The United Nations is the '' A.A.C.N.Y .'' Arab, African Club of New York. It is a spent force with corrupt people from top to bottom. A full investigation on funds and the flow of these should be initiated without delay. Corruption in every division and every part of this sic Club is ringing a bell. Meetings and decisions are planned and made, but really nothing of real worth is concluded. Time to shut it all down and save the expences. The real deserving nations get kicked to the side, while cruel thieving louts get endless hand-outs

    The US should ask the UN to quite America and we at the same time should stop paying them our part. We should say bye bye to this shameful institution so corrupted and damaging to the whole world. These people are interested on grabbing power, and controlling others.. Disgusting and dangerous.

    No I don't know what you mean, but I suspect that whatever you intended to say should be removed.

    You are welcome to believe whatever racist crap you like, but when you post it up here, you end up damaging the rest of us who don't believe that filth.

    By the way, this may come as a shock to you but not all Jews are from Europe, or "White", nor are you as clever as you think you are by virtue of your melatonin content.

    The U.N. is the Afro / Arab Club of New York. They run the club the city and most of us !
    I do not pas one cent to any of their charities — it all seems bogus to me. I look forward
    to their total demise. It was founded with purpose, but is a spent force in every way right
    now, mainly financial !
