The U.N. Says No To Iran

The U.N. Says No To Iran (last updated 9/8/2012)

"Recently, the United Nations dodged 2 bullets that would have done serious damage to its prestige and effectiveness. Both involve the Islamic Republic of Iran.


The U.N. avoided a second blow to its reputation and its value as a champion of human rights when Iran was denied its bid to join the Executive Board of a new UN agency, UN Women, whose mission is to promote gender equality and women's empowerment. The idea of a government that has imprisoned scores of women's rights activists who peacefully seek to change discriminatory gender laws, and that recently sentenced a woman to death by stoning, occupying such a position, caused international concern. When the member states of the UN's Economic and Social Council chose among 11 nations to occupy the 10 seats set aside for Asia, Iran received the fewest votes of any contender.

U.S. Permanent Representative to the U.N. Susan Rice applauded the results: "We've made no secret of our concern that Iran joining the board of UN Women would have been an inauspicious start to that board," said Ambassador Rice. "We think it was a very good outcome."

President Barack Obama has noted that the United Nations "was founded on the belief that the nations of the world could solve their problems together." The decisions the UN has taken this month help keep that belief alive, and also help the United Nations play, as President Obama has said it must, "an indispensable role in the advance of human rights."

How convenient, isn't it ?

"the United Nations 'was founded on the belief that the nations of the world could solve their problems together.'"

Indeed, like picking and choosing which nations are granted to have their women speak for their condition in their own country ? Conveniently enough, Iranian women cannot even have a word for themselves before the U.N.


In truth, I'm telling you :

The "United Nations" = Zionist front.


As to your comment, the UN

As to your comment, the UN was created to implement world fascism. Sadly, the "greatest generation" thought they were merely defeating an admittedly deranged axis with the face of Hitler. In really, the "greatest generation" fought World War 2 to implement WORLD fascism since the first attempt failed following World War 1.

I know.

I kept repeating myself on the same topic, recently, from a different angle, in my comments of that other thread.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
