More Evidence of the Corruption of the United Nations

From the International Humanist and Ethical Union:

IHEU today attempted to call on the United Nations to condemn killing in the name of religion, but were prevented from doing so by the heavy-handed intervention of Islamic representatives. The IHEU call, at today’s meeting of the UN Sub-Commission on Human Rights in Geneva, follows moves by Islamic clerics to legitimise the current wave of terror attacks.

At this afternoon’s meeting, IHEU representative David Littman attempted to deliver a prepared text in the joint names of three international NGOs: the Association for World Education, the Association of World Citizens, and IHEU, but was prevented from doing so by the intervention of Islamic members of the Sub-Commission. After repeated interruptions he was unable to complete his speech.

The Islamic members of the Sub-Commission objected to the speech as an attack on Islam. The text however(attached) is a report on recent critical comment on Islamist extremism by a number of notable Muslim writers and is a call to the UN Human Rights Commission by the NGOs “to condemn calls to kill, to terrorise or to use violence in the name of God or any religion”.

The text referred to recent decisions by high-ranking Muslim clerics confirming that those who carry out suicide bombings cannot be treated as apostates and remain Muslims(1), a fatwa by a Saudi cleric that innocent Britons were a legitimate target for terrorist action(2), and remarks by Yusuf al-Qaradawi, dean of the College of Sharia and Islamic Studies at Qatar University who has visited Britain, that terror attacks are permissible.

Commenting on this censorship, Roy Brown, President of IHEU said:
“This is part and parcel of the refusal by the Islamic representatives at the UN to condemn the suicide bombers, or to accept any criticism of those who kill innocent people in the name of God.

  1. So what are you trying to say? Your quoted text doesn’t show corruption, but dissent. They are, contrary to the belief of many who have never opened a dictionary, quite different. Please, point out where the UN, as an organization, is corrupt in the quoted statement.


  2. The corruption exists in the immorality of the United Nations. They condemn Israel when it attacks Palestinians, but don’t condemn Palestinians when they attack Israel. They have countries like Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Cuba on the Human Rights Commission. They were involved in a scandal of immense proportions in the Iraqi Food for Oil program. They can’t condemn killing in the name of religion because the Sub-Commission on Human Rights is composed mostly of countries who don’t think that killing in the name of religion is wrong, and if fact think it is legitimate.It is the most useless and corrupt organization and accomplishes nothing in the world.Other than that there is nothing wrong with the U.N.
