Human rights? Basic human needs and freedom? The right to not be abused or tortured? Where on earth is the United Nations Human Rights Council?
This horrifying narrative of a young Yazidi girl is not surprising or unique. This is life for those who do not wish to conform to the beliefs of ISIS. Yet if you walk into the United Nations Human Rights Council, only one country seems to be committing horrible crimes against humanity. The country that is always on the firing line seems to be Israel. Just Israel.
Objectivity? Enforcing human rights throughout the world? Bringing relief to those who are suffering? Fighting prejudice and standing up for basic human dignity and values. Happy hunting.
You won’t find any of that at the UN.
