UN Names Syria to Committee to Oppose “Subjugation, Domination and Exploitation”

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.


Luckily the Syrian government is an expert at all three areas and will doubtlessly do the United Nations proud. The story here isn’t just another horrible Muslim tyranny being named to a top United Nations post revealing once again the complete moral and legal bankruptcy of the UN system.

The real story is the refusal of the UNocrats and the entire leftist establishment to let go of their ridiculous colonialism narrative as the explanation for all the world’s woes.

UN Watch today called on Ban Ki-moon, US Ambassador Susan Rice and EU representatives to condemn the world body’s “revolting and absurd” decision to unanimously re-elect the Assad regime to a senior post on a decolonization committee charged with upholding fundamental human rights in opposing the “subjugation, domination and exploitation” of peoples — a propaganda victory now being trumpeted by Syria’s state-funded SANA news agency.

The committee is mandated to implement the UN’s 1961 Declaration on the Granting of Independence of Colonial Countries and Peoples.

How relevant is the “struggle” against colonialism today? Not at all.

The Middle East is operating under governments created by the descendants of the conquerors and colonizers of yesteryear. This isn’t taken into account by the entire narrative that blames a brief period of European colonialism while completely disregarding Muslim colonialism. And that results in the absurd spectacle of UN attacks on the indigenous Jewish population of Israel on behalf of the Arab Muslim settlers and colonizers.

In Syria, the problem isn’t colonialism, it’s the descendants of the Muslim colonizers fighting over which version of Islam should be supreme while wiping out the remaining Christian population.

Instead of addressing the situation, the UN continues a phantom war against “colonialism” while Syria tears itself apart in a Muslim holy war.

    I have difficulty understanding why we allow this FUBAR, so called world organization on U.S. soil?
    WHY?… Anyone?

    The UN thugocracy hearts with Muslim supremacists, and this is a match made in heaven, depending on which side of civilization you are on.
    The very fact that democracies allow themselves to be part of this dog and pony show is the real story. The question becomes – why hasn't the US pulled out of this cesspool, and thrown them out of the country too? History will ask this very same question, hundreds of yrs from now. Multi-culti psychotics have much to answer for, as they perpetuate the madness of a "community of nations". Sheesh.

    This IS the true face of the UN – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/12/23/what-happens-

    BTW, Israel, regrettably, follows its Washington leader, otherwise they would have flown the UN coop long ago. Tragic.
