Human Rights Voices Chronicles Shocking Litany

Hangings in Iran

The important Web site, Human Rights Voices, carries out the daunting but critical task of exposing the deep and pervasive hypocrisy of the United Nations where Israel is concerned.

Founded and written by Professor Anne Bayefsky, Director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust, the site chronicles the UN's relentless attacks against the Jewish state and the free pass it gives to many of the world's worst human rights abusers.

Despite Israel's tolerant culture that guarantees basic rights to all its citizens, the country is subject to an unrelenting process of denunciation in UN committees tasked with promoting human rights. Meanwhile, countless instances of flagrant abuses carried out by surrounding Muslim countries are ignored or dispensed with in a hum-drum and toothless manner by committees on which some of the worst human rights abusers sit in judgement.

Recent posts on the Human Rights Voices web site include:

International Criminal Court will investigate Israel, but not genocidal Isis
UN Security Council holds debate on "the Situation in the Middle East," but focus is on Israel
Christian and Jewish leaders criticize UN for failure to act to protect Christians from global persecution

A series of articles on a spate of hangings in Iran are a reminder of the silence of the media as well in the face of gross abuses in Iran. Iran's barbaric treatment of women, including sentencing several to death, has not stopped the Islamic Republic from winning a seat in the UN Women's Agency, making a mockery of the UN's campaign for international women's rights.

It's really sad to hear this kind of news. It's very abusive for people in Iran. And for those who are victim of these kind of sentence.
