UNITED NATIONS COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS
Arab, Muslim and Communist Bloc in charge of Human Rights

The U.N. Human Rights Commission
(it really takes a lot of self-control not to put facetious quotation marks around all U.N. titles)

now includes Zimbabwe, China, Ukraine, Algeria, Bahrain, Congo, Libya, Sudan, Russia, Syria, Uganda and Vietnam – all strongholds of civil liberty. This April, the commission passed a pro-terrorist resolution condoning "all available means, including armed struggle" to establish a Palestinian state. Six European Union members joined the 57 nations of the Islamic Conference in legitimizing suicide bombers.

A human rights commission that condones "armed" struggle may seem a bit anomalous, but the resolution shouldn't be a shocker to anyone paying attention. Of all condemnations by the commission, 26 percent single out Israel. Syria, Libya and Saudi Arabia evidently possess spotless human rights records, as they have been immune to denunciation.

The Women's Conference organized by the U.N. has adopted numerous resolutions condemning Zionism as one of the most serious obstacles for the emancipation of women. The first one of these resolutions was passed in 1975, a year after the resignation of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. A woman, of course, has yet to lead an Arab nation.

Palestinian terrorism

As a deliberate policy, the Arab/Muslim bloc and their sympathisers sponsor endless United Nations resolutions condemning Israel.
Not one expression of concern is voiced for the continuance of Palestinian terrorism or for its victims.
This political agenda is designed to project the criticism of Israel to the forefront of international awareness, stoking up the ever-increasing list of resolutions -- which the State of Israel is forced to ignore.

of the peace process in the Middle East, and its hope that peace talks will be resumed on the
basis of the full implementation of Security Council resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973) for
the establishment of a just and comprehensive peace in the region,
Reaffirming its previous relevant resolutions, the most recent being resolution 2002/6 of

its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the occupied Syrian Golan is null and void and
without international legal effect, and demanded that Israel should rescind forthwith its decision;
2. Also calls upon Israel to desist from changing the physical character,

3. Further calls upon Israel to desist from imposing Israeli citizenship and Israeli
identity cards on the Syrian citizens in the occupied Syrian Golan and to desist from its
repressive measures against them, and from all other practices mentioned in the report of the
Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian
People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories;
4. Determines that all legislative and administrative measures and actions taken or to
be taken by Israel, the occupying Power, that purport to alter the character and legal status of the
occupied Syrian Golan are null and void, constitute a flagrant violation of international law and
of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War and have
no legal effect ;
5. Calls once again upon Member States not to recognize any of the legislative or
administrative measures and actions referred to above;
6. Requests the Secretary-General to bring the present resolution to the attention of
all Governments, the competent United Nations organs, the specialized agencies, regional
intergovernmental organizations and international humanitarian organizations and to give it the
widest possible publicity, and to report to the Commission on Human Rights at its sixtieth
session;
7. Decides to include in the provisional agenda of its sixtieth session, as a matter of
