Top 10 Worst U.N. Decisions of 2012

Compiled by U.N. Watch

 

1. Electing genocidal Sudan to ECOSOC, a top U.N. council overseeing human rights bodies.

 

2. Adopting Cuba’s “Right to Peace” resolution, which endorsed terrorism, at the same time as the Castro regime was backing Assad’s murderous Syrian forces.
 

3. Keeping Richard Falk as U.N. investigator of “Israel’s violations,” even after he was removed from Human Rights Watch in wake of protests over his support for Hamas, 9/11 conspiracy theories and promotion of antisemitism.
 

 

5. Electing the Venezuelan dictatorship of Hugo Chavez to the U.N. Human Rights Council.
 

6. Adopting 22 resolutions attacking Israel in the U.N. General Assembly — compared to 4 on the rest of the world combined.
 

7. Adopting 0 U.N. resolutions for victims of systematic human rights abuse in China, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, and many other non-democracies.
 

8. Appointing a top official to the U.N. Human Rights Council who is a hero to Holocaust deniers and defends Iranian tyrant Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s “right to nuclear energy.”
 

9. Celebrating a new “State of Palestine” days after Palestinians in Gaza committed armed aggression by attacking Israel with hundreds of rockets, and while the PA fails to exercise effective control over any part of Gaza or in much of the West Bank.
 

10. Deciding to keep Syria’s Assad regime as a full member on UNESCO’s human rights committee.
