The UN Human Rights Council is a sick joke

Russia has been suspended from the UN Human Rights Council. And although this will do absolutely nothing to deter Vladimir Putin’s war machine, it is still an almost historic decision.

Because of all the compromised international bodies that exist in the world, absolutely none is as utterly so as the entity in Geneva. The United Nations Human Rights Council is to human rights what the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) is to democracy. And to people.

The organisation would make the characters in Alice in Wonderland feel somewhat dizzy and out of sorts.

Just last month Iran was appointed to a four-year term on the UNHRC’s commission on women’s rights. Yes, that’s Iran, where women can be detained for years without charge, can be executed for “adultery”, are treated as second-class citizens from cradle to grave, and can be jailed for singing or for not wearing the garments the state insists they wear.

But none of this seems to bother the “human rights” body in Geneva. The whole organisation is one big, sick joke. An ordinary day at the UNHRC consists of rogue states and failed states ganging up on a variety of liberal democracies – most commonly Israel.

Sometimes the Third World countries also use the forum to insist on cash payments being made from the First World countries to the developing world for wrongs that they never suffered.

So Russia being thrown off this body temporarily is in some ways surprising. It doesn’t show the UNHRC in any better light. Nothing could. But it might count as a minor, if unimportant, embarrassment for Russia.

Imagine: too violent and despotic even for the UN organisation in Geneva. Now, that is something.
