The UN High Commission on Human Rights is a Joke
Another proud day for Italy, Australia and trhe UK and US and plenty others too, I am pleased to note, as the UNHCHR is smacked down on a stupid resolution it wanted to pass about religious defamation.
Natch the thing was all about Islam instead of really being about religion. So natch nations of real conscience said "bar off, we are not resolving to not slam Islam alone".
The link is long but real interesting cos it shows what each nation had to say about the vote. So very polite in declining, but the subtext is clear. Stop using the UN as your whiney martyr shop, Islam. you guys are the biggest slammers of religion - the Jewish religion - on earth.
Youse just are.
