UN Council on the Rights of Terrorists?

UN Council on the Rights of Terrorists?

Like these ones news come from a country that was recently elected to the UN Human Rights Council: a member of the ruling dynasty of Saudi Arabia was subjected to corporal punishment. In prison in Jeddah, he was flogged, after which he will serve a prison sentence. Moreover, the authorities do not report neither the name of the prince, nor the information for which he was punished.

Surely for this subject is not worth defending. The morals of the Saudi court are a dark matter. But medieval methods of punishment extend in this kingdom both to bloggers, and poets, and even to tourists. For example, in October last, 2015 of the year 360-year-old British guest of Saudi Arabia was sentenced to lash out for finding home-made wine in his car. And a few months earlier, the power of the kingdom publicly bloated blogger Rafe Badawi for "atheism" and "insulting Islam." In addition to corporal punishment, he received 74 years in prison. The lawyer who defended the blogger was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment for dissent. Another famous victim of the Saudi judicial inquisition was the Palestinian poet Ashraf Fayyad, who was first sentenced to death and then replaced with a spanking punishment.

The prince was lucky a little more than the rest - the doctors examined him before the punishment to see if he could stand the execution. Doctors usually do not examine other prisoners.

And in the resolution, in accordance with which the body was created, where Saudi Arabia was elected, said the following: “Council members must maintain the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights.». Well, these “high standards” are obvious. More precisely, on the backs.

This time, Russia was not included in the Council. When choosing representatives of Eastern Europe, Hungary and Croatia overtook our country - they were considered more worthy to protect human rights. Obviously, no one raises his voice in defense of the rights of Serbs in Croatia, against whom atrocious war crimes were committed at the beginning of the 90s. The majority of Serbs were forced to leave their native lands, and the few remaining - continue to remain in this "young democratic country" second-class people ... However, at the October 28 meeting, 112 states voted for Russia, and 114 voted for Russia. Hungary beat everyone ahead - she got 144 votes.

Shortly before the vote, dozens of various human rights organizations circulated an appeal in which they urged not to elect Russia to the UN Human Rights Council. They considered that by their actions in Aleppo, the Russian Federation "would have discredited the Council."

Perhaps this appeal would have remained an empty scribble if it were not for the general atmosphere in the international political arena.. For several years now, a new cold war against Russia has been going on, the intensity of which has increased in recent months. Syria, Crimea, Donbass, “Boeing” - all these topics do not leave the pages of the world media and from the tribunes of international organizations. Russia has plenty of accusers. These fake "prosecutors" defiantly turn a blind eye to their sins and the sins of their allies.

In fact, the great tragedy did not happen. In any case, no country can occupy a seat on the UN Human Rights Council for more than two consecutive terms. If Russia passed this time, next year there would be no right to run for that body. True, one can hardly expect that by that time the attitude towards Moscow will become warmer for its opponents, so that the political struggle is still to be serious.

Of course, the current vote in the Council reflects quite definite tendencies - Russia will try in every possible way to spoil things in order to reduce its influence in the world. And, although by itself this body cannot make decisions that are binding, the opponents of the Russian Federation will actively use this rostrum for waging an information war.

From the West, the most odious states — the United States and Britain — entered the UNHRC. It can be assumed that the representative of Latin America, Cuba, which is traditionally an ally of Moscow, will dare to resist them most resolutely. You can also expect some actions that break the plans of Washington and London from China.

It is characteristic that those “human rights” organizations that denounced Russia with disgrace for the events in Syria did not mention the crimes of anti-Syrian terrorists, among which they were banned in many countries, including and in the Russian Federation, "Islamic State" and "Dzhebhat An-Nusra." Thus, they are trying to present the actions of Russia with nothing provoked, to keep silent about the atrocities of terrorist organizations and about the contribution of Moscow to the fight against them.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov remarked on this point that if these organizations condemned the actions of terrorists, and not Russia, their work would have seemed much more convincing.

As for Saudi Arabia, no such treatment was made for it, despite the medieval punishments. Despite the fact that women in this monarchy regime is prohibited to get behind the wheel. Despite the fact that this kingdom continues to help terrorists who kill the Syrians. Despite the fact that, finally, Riyadh continues to strike at the peaceful cities of Yemen.

It is also worth remembering that the Libyan Jamahiriya was expelled from the UN Human Rights Council when Muammar Al-Gaddafi was in power there. But the membership of Libya was resumed after Gaddafi was killed with incredible savagery and complete chaos reigned in the country. A little later, Syria was not allowed into this body, which was also considered “inappropriate.”

But, as we have the honor to contemplate, Saudi Arabia is quite suitable for this body. Like its closest ally - the United States, along with the Guantanamo prison.

And, if those few progressive states that nevertheless went to the UN Human Rights Council fail to organize a proper response to the violators of human rights who are guilty of initiating wars, then this body risks turning into the UN Council on the Rights of Terrorists.

    T.N. The "western elite" has been bought up by the Saudi, Qatari and other oil bosses of the Persian Gulf. The Black Islamist International is funded from the same source. Export of extremism is a condition of existence and an instrument of foreign policy blackmail of oil monarchies. Vicious circle. IMHO

    then this body risks becoming the UN Council on the Rights of Terrorists
    For a long time already, all these UN platforms have turned into discussion clubs for the protection of terrorists and their sponsors. Our Foreign Ministry openly says that the US is trying in every possible way to push Al-Nusra into the "moderate", to exclude any mention of it in any treaties and resolutions. to Geneva, how were terrorists dragged in under the guise of moderates? And the "separation of the opposition from terrorists" from the same opera! But what can I say, everyone has long been clear, the author correctly concluded:
    These fake "prosecutors" defiantly turn a blind eye to their sins and the sins of their allies.
    So it will be, and hope that in the near foreseeable future something will change, it’s not worth it .... request

      17.10.Vladislav! In every way they want to make ISIS an official organization recognized by the international community. Who called the terrorists the state of Libya and Iraq? Global community. What for? To recognize its official international status. And if they are recognized, then they are legal. Well, as on the outskirts. If ISIS is recognized as legal, then Assad is not legal and Russia's presence in Syria is also not legal. The United States will be able to be in Syria either at the request of a legitimate ISIS organization or by expelling (such as a freed world) ISIS. Then the game is two moves. Extruding Russia from Syria, then either cooperation with ISIS or its elimination (which is very doubtful). Why support the terrorists? Destruction of economies of countries and regions, the creation of a strangulation loop against Russia and China. The USA receives cheap oil, Russia also receives cheap oil, China will receive instability of transportation routes. Eventually; Russia, at a loss from cheap oil, from cutting off gas transportation, the United States has cheap raw materials, sales of military-industrial complex products and the absence of technological competitors in the form of countries and regions (which is most important for the USA). If Islamic Hitler appears and Islam appears in Europe and all of this goes to Russia, then this is the most ideal option for the United States (which they seem to be striving for). Here comes the game on a large scale and the stakes in it are for the whole world. Does Russia counteract this? I do not see and do not know. But it seems that we condone. If we crush the terrorists in Syria, the scenario of the 45th year is possible. The territory of the occupation of Russia and the territory of the US occupation. I doubt that the Americans will give us the opportunity to recapture the entire territory of Syria. Rather, they, under the guise of liberation, will replace terrorists with their troops. And the bombing of the US Army by Russia will already be a declaration of war to the whole world. Most likely, we are preparing such a scenario for the future. hi

        As history shows, the United States can be anywhere, anytime, with or without a request. And they wanted to spit on all international institutions taken together.

            The era of the concept of "international law" ended with the collapse of the Union. The current situation reminds me of the gloomy Middle Ages, where only the strong and the brazen are right, and all this fuss at the UN is designed exclusively for the stupid Western (and not only) layman. Russia's main problem is that it is trying to play fair with Western political cheats, using concepts such as "international law." This is a deliberate loss. You need to be more cunning, and always speak only from a position of strength, since recently Russia has such an opportunity.

    How much can one be perplexed and indignant! Is it really not clear that there is a Slavic world (the former Russian Empire) and all the others, united in fierce hatred against the Slavic world. Therefore, I believe that the least attention should be paid to their tantrums, blueness, dementia, and to do what is beneficial to us, the Slavic world. Only in this way can we survive! angry

      Slavic world (former Russian Empire
      Unfortunately, the Slavic world is constantly being reduced by the efforts of the West. Rather, in a different way, judging by the Ukrainian new "historiography", the only Slavs are Ukrans. The rest are "dirty Finno-Ugric savages" who stole the language and culture from the "enlightened" ukrov.

      Slavic world! laughing And where are the Jews to do, seized upon in the 90s, as in 1917 in such numbers? When you turn on the TV viewer, it seems that we are in Israel, and not in Russia, and the state-forming people are stupid, arrogant Jews. And just like that you can’t pick out these degenerates from there.

    and again I repeat .. I wrote already in "Russia was not elected to the UN Human Rights Council" - about the fact that what countries, all connoisseurs of human rights ... however, in Saudi Arabia they do not sin much against the truth - they are fighting hard for human rights, a woman is not a person for them ... The Croats have stopped fighting for the rights of the Serbs ???? Rwanda is the same, wildly interesting there Hutu continue to fight for the rights of Tutsis or has already subsided ??? South Africa is held by the remnants of the white population, as soon as they will be squeezed out, we will see the second Somalia ... Pakistan and Libya are missing in a warm company (or rather, what it was turned into) ... and now it follows from the article that Libya is on the council ...

    The United States lifted the ban on suing Saudi Arabia in connection with the 9/11 attack. Now we will have the opportunity to vote at the UN for flogging the head of the US state, or, at least, the US representative to the UN.

    By the number of votes against Russia, it is a great way to count the number of pins and docs in the Security Council. However, this is not a secret. This whole circus proves once again that Russia needs to put another organ on this organ and go about its business. Without regard to any Western nonsense like "human rights" and "democratic values", which in Russia have already become an analogue of swear words.

    You are not quite right. All these PRINTS are educated at the best western universities. But judging even by my observations of life, a higher education does not add to a person either intelligence or culture. It all depends on the education and social environment. Let them be one of the richest people on the planet, but as they were by their nature camel drivers they remained.
