The “world” is all in a twitter because the US has dropped out of the UN Human Rights Council – the ship has sailed. The comments come from interesting sources: Sweden – whose human rights have spiraled to such an extent that rape, assault, burglary, and murder have qualified them to become a third world country by 2020. Of course no commentary is ever left unsaid by the UK’s Boris Johnson who just likes to see himself quoted. The UK Parliamentary has become a crass pit of moral and ethical depravity with screaming, fights, barbs, and sarcastic laughter the new norms. The English Gentleman is dead. China says they regret the move. Indonesia has ‘deep’ regret. Of course, the barbs from the UN High Commissioner, Prince Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, include – snickeringly disappointed but not surprised.
The Prince himself hails from Jordan where slavery and squalor and over crowded migrant camps house refugees who are given no education, no jobs, no rights. Jordan, where women are still considered chattel. Jordan, whose human rights are perverted every single day. Jordan who took in Palestinian refugees between 1947 and 1964 numbering roughly 2 million. Of those, about 634,000 do not hold Jordanian citizenship and have no rights thereof. Approximately 370,000 still live in the refugee camps – and have no rights..
The UN itself is a body that has been mired in human rights violations for decades. It’s Peacekeepers charged with prostitution, rape, and sex trafficking. Essentially, these activities have been funded by the US and the international community. The UN is a shameful despot of corruption and most likely a large source and contributor to the world’s human trafficking, pedophilia, child trafficking and sex trafficking industries.
The UN is an embarrassment. Prince Zeid Ra’ad has an agenda and is simply using his position within the UN to affect that agenda instead of addressing the real issues that plague the world in Sudan, the Congo, Nigeria, Rwanda, Yemen, etc…
There are numerous arenas of trafficking, but the UN has been charged in Haiti, Bosnia, Ivory Coast, Somalia, Congo, Liberia, Sri Lanka, Central African Republic, Kosovo, Morocco… the list most likely extends to every country where the UN “Peacekeepers” engage.
This is the organization tasked with reporting human rights violations. They are the worst offenders. And it has existed for decades…
What is the UN doing to change these gross violations of human rights?
According to the UN, they have taken a tough stance and now require vetting of deployed officers. If the UN is for some reason unable to do the vetting, they urge the government where they deploy their officers to do the vetting for them. If the government has ‘concerns’ about a particular officer, they can be repatriated and replaced. Ah. Problem solved.
If that doesn’t work, well they wrote a Charter which states that the highest standards of conduct must include; efficiency, integrity and competence, with zero tolerance for sexual exploitation. I’m sure the pedophiles and rapists are no longer applying for UN Peacekeeper jobs because they don’t meet the Charter standards.
And what has the UN done with regard to the past allegations?
They have ‘substantiated’ 2, the remaining allegations have been thrown out – no consequences. Which means that these perpetrators are still employed, still receiving benefits, and we will provide them with a nice lucrative pension after they retire. We taxpayers who have no pension…
Because it is all about money. Follow the money. The UN Budget for Peacekeeping? For the period July 2016 to July 2017 it was $7.87 billion, which was apparently a bit less than the previous year.
Working for the UN is considered great! Many have the option to work from home, and the payscale is quite generous offering housing, travel and food allowances, benefits, pensions, and free healthcare. As of 2016, the UN Pension Fund was valued at $56 billion with an annual payout of roughly $2.3 billion.
This is why the UN exists today – and the only reason.
