The mockery of Human Rights by the United Nations
UN made another mockery of human rights by electing the Islamic Regime
in Iran (IRI) to five subcommittees of the Economic and Social Council,
including one to the Commission of the Status of Women in April 2014. By
far, this is the most arrogant insult to all women, specifically Iranian
women. The UN has a history of exhibiting a favorable attitude
toward human rights abusers. The Commission on the Human Rights (CHR),
established in 1946, was so ineffective that it was replaced in 2006 by
the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) with the premise of “a new beginning
for the promotion and protection of human rights,” as declared by the
U.N. General Assembly President, Jan Eliasson .
"new era" that attracted the votes of notorious human rights
abusers such as Iran, China, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Syria, Sudan,
Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Burma, and Pakistan, has served as a platform for
these abusers to ward off criticism and avoid accountability for their
gross violations of human rights.
existence of this regime depends on accessing atomic bomb, maintaining
and expanding its dominance in the region, promoting its reactionary
ideology, and helping terrorists all over the world. The Islamic
Regime will never observe human rights in Iran.

Charter may be suspended and expelled from the Organization by the
General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council. This
has never happened and having considered the veto power of China and
Russia, will never happen.
