The zionists in charge of the legal committee; the Saudi headchoppers of human rights. The race to the bottom
A Fox in the Henhouse: Israel Elected to Head UN Legal Committee
On Monday, the United Nations elected Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon to chair the Legal Committee, a group that oversees fidelity to international law. This decision sparked outrage from Arab and Palestinian leaders, who say it’s hypocritical for Israel to chair an international law committee while actively committing humans rights violations.

Danon was elected by secret ballot, winning 109 from the 193 member states, and is the first time Israel will chair this permanent committee in the UN’s 71-year history.
The Human Rights Council is beholden to outmoded protocols that allow rotating member-states to assume control of issues they’re least qualified to address.

In a normal world, Saudi Arabia would be arraigned for its appalling human rights record, not appointed to head an important panel at the international human rights monitor. And yet, it was revealed Monday that over the summer Saudi Arabia was appointed to a panel at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) that would interview and short-list experts, from among whom successful candidates would then be nominated to examine specific human rights challenges. These challenges may include the human rights record of a particular country or a specific theme, and those themes can include violence against women, the rights of migrants, religious freedom, or sexual orientation.
