7:34 P.M. UN’s a massive joke !!! …

The UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights , Navi Pillay , sitting right behind Ahmadinejad as he spoke in 2009 , didn’t utter a peep in protest about that noxious speech or about those who would applaud such hate , but she did criticize Canada and others for not sitting in on the session !!! …

Pillay was apparently unable to see what Canada easily could ; The utter absurdity of the fact the Durban II event … A conference , I repeat , to expose human rights abuses in the form of racism … Was chaired by Moammar Gadhafi’s Libya , Ahmadinejad’s Iran and Castro’s Cuba !!! …

Last week at Durban III , the West was lectured that it was not doing enough about human rights abuses by none other than Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe !!! …

Giving the likes of Gadhafi , Mugabe and Ahmadinejad such prominent roles in these bodies is just plain bad news for the UN …

‘ The prominent role played by many dictatorships , totalitarian regimes and notorious human rights abusers in UN decision-making bodies does great damage to the organization’s credibility ‘ Immigration Minister Jason Kenney told me just before he gave a speech in New York last week attacking the whole Durban process …

But it’s just not Durban that makes the UN look bad …

The presidency of the UN’s security council rotates every month and this month , the presidency is held by Lebanon , where the party in power is the political wing of Hezbollah …

So the guy who’s president of the UN security council represents a group Canada has declared to be a known terrorist group !!! …

Meanwhile , China is a paid-up member of the UN Committee on Information …

Saudi Arabia , where women can’t even drive a car , is happy to pitch in as a member of the UN Commission on the Status of Women !!! … Two other well-known defenders of the rights of women , Libya and Iran , are also on the commission !!! …

As they say ‘ You couldn’t make this stuff up ! ‘ …

And yet , that is the everyday reality of today’s United Nations …
