UN General Assembly To Appoint Hero Of Holocaust Deniers, Alfred de Zayas, To Human Rights Commission

Only the United Nations would have the nerve to appoint Alfred de Zayas to be the Human Rights Council’s “Independent Expert on the promotion of a democratic and equitable international order.” The HRC, famous for passing hundreds of resolutions denouncing Israel while ignoring genocide elsewhere, includes Bangladesh, China, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Cuba and Turkey, all notorious human rights violators.

Dr. Alfred de Zayas built his career on a combination of slandering the Bible, trivializing the Jewish people, denouncing the Allies in World War II for war crimes against the Germans, and demanding Israel be expelled from the United Nations. He accused Churchill and Roosevelt of genocide against the Germans and constantly refers to world leaders he dislikes as “Pharisees,” a Biblical tern often used by those who accuse the Jewish people of killing Christ.

The Human Rights Council has a history of members who engage in antisemitic activities. In 2011, US academic Richard Falk, a UN Special Rapporteur to the Human Rights Council, published a cartoon of a dog wearing a Kippah (the head covering worn by Jewish Men) adorned with a Star of David. The dog is depicted urinating on a blindfolded woman holding the scales of justice while feasting on human remains.

Falk, who is Jewish, is also a 9/11 truther, and he has been reprimanded by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on several occasions for his antisemitic comments and for accusing the US of responsibility for blowing up the World Trade Center.

Yet, it is business as usual on the UNHRC. Falk still has his job, Alfred de Zayas is being appointed, and the endless resolutions against Israel continue. Boko Haram in Nigeria is ignored along with the oppression of 10 million Copts in Egypt and the Islamist genocide in Africa. Hugo Chavez and the Castro brothers continue to arm rebels, seize private property, close down the free press, imprison opponents, and destabilize Latin America and South America without a word from the Human Rights Council.

The UN Human Rights commission is a tool in the hands of tyrants, used as a hammer to pound the United States and Israel while largely ignoring the horrors that plague our planet. Recently, Saudi Arabia, a member of the Human Rights commission, decapitated a woman in a public square with a sword for witchcraft.
