UN's Most Recent Iniquity: How They Honored Syria

Nadene Goldfoot
This transgression is simply laughable and shows the inner workings of the UN members' minds.  They have come to the "revolting and absurd" decision to unanimously re-elect the Assad regime of Syria to a senior post on a decolonization committee charged with, and here comes the laughable part:

Upholding fundamental human rights in opposing the "subjugation, domination and exploitation" of peoples.  
You can be sure that he will continue to be the leader in judging Israel and finding her at fault no matter what the situation is.

Syria is now using this propaganda victory which is being trumpeted by their state-funded SANA News Agency.  They've  killed at least 70,000 of their own people.  Bashar al-Assad, 47 years old,  is a mass murderer.  His father, Hafez, ruled for 30 years previously to Bashar's rule starting in 2000 at the age of 35 years.  The UN is actually helping Assad and his regime to be pictured as a UN human rights arbiter.  It's an insult to all those who have died by his decisions.  This now rests on the head of Ban Ki-moon for Assad's being able to be re-elected..  As one comment puts it, it's like welcoming Hitler to a post, and this post has to do with his own activities that 55 parliamentarians, human rights and religious groups are up in arms over.  They are calling for Syria's expulsion, but instead, the UN places them again in this overseeing position.  Many people have lost faith in anything that comes out of the UN today.  Perhaps it's time, with  the USA in such economic strife,  to cut the strings with this organization.  We're throwing away money which is going down the drain.

US Secretary of State John Kerry is saying that the USA and France want a speedy political transition in Syria.  The USA is facing immediate cuts throughout all government expenses and he says that they are "debating increased aid' to the opposition groups.  Obviously Assad is a bad dude, but it's possible that his replacement could be worse.  The one thing that Assad did was keep the border with Israel fairly peaceful.  I just hate to see anything like the Muslim Brotherhood gain a foot in this country.

Assad, who could be up before an international board for murder, "had graduated from the medical school of the University of Damascus in 1988, and started to work as a physician in the army. Four years later, he attended postgraduate studies at the Western Eye Hospital , in London, specializing in ophthalmology. He should be a most intelligent man, but certainly lacked the fundamentals of getting along with his people and being a fair politician.  He's called a president but acts more like a Czar.  Since when do real presidents serve in a life-time position like his father?  It belies the title, "president."

Syria had 22,505,000 people but with  so many killed in their uprising, now must have about 22,435,000.  90% are Muslim, mostly Sunni and some 13% are Shi'a.  3% are Druse, and 10-12% Christians who live in either Damascus or Allepo.  There are Kurds who also live in Syria. Syria's  military power was made up of about 296,000 troops.  It's the 17th largest populated Muslim country in the world, the 1st being Indonesia.

When I lived in Israel from 1980-1985, we used to see Syrian TV on our screens as well as TV programs from Lebanon and Egypt.  It was the Syrians who showed the ultimate violence of soldiers lined up and in a shocking demonstration, bite animals they were holding in their hands.  It was most shocking to me, and I've never forgotten this violent demonstration.  It's not a country of peace.
