    Only the UN could turn Israel in the Middle East's #1 persecutor of women.

    Even the Arab/Islamic world seems more concerned about the situation in Syria and elsewhere then Israel. You know it's a sad day when the UN is being more Israel-obsessive then the Arabs.

    This is not about the UN, it's about the regimes that get a say there. Iran, Lybia, Syria in a council on human rights? Way to go!

    Yup.

    Majority of members come from countries where women have basically no others rights than STFU and go back to the kitchen.

    I'm surprised they don't have Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan on the board.
