Human Rights, UN Style

Hillel Neuer, Executive Director of the non-governmental-organization UN Watch, spoke to the UN Human Rights Council. He pointed to a long record of the UN covering all human rights abuses except for Israel's alleged abuses. The council president was not happy, ruled the "tone" unacceptable, and ordered Mr. Neuer's remarks stricken from the record.

In 1923, the NY Times was hoping that a "head of the [international] family" would emerge. Many in the Democratic party now regard that head as the UN. To others, the UN, like the League of Nations before it, does not seem the least bit worthy of the position.
