New Rights Council Brings More Shame to UN
April 10, 2006
IRVINE, CA--"The new Human Rights Council is supposedly a turning point for the United Nations--yet the council underscores how the world body is hopelessly corrupt," said Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute.
"Regimes that used the former rights commission to shield themselves from criticism successfully worked to make the new Human Rights Council toothless. And, according to news reports, there are hardly enough pro-American nations in the UN to elect the United States to the new council. That this council will be little more than a re-packaging of the discredited rights commission is obvious. The UN is run by and for dictatorships.
"And it is only America's cooperation, financing and moral sanction that lends the UN any legitimacy. Our withdrawal from that vicious organization is decades overdue."
