Protesters Shot In Arab Countries, So The UN Human Rights Council Investigates..Israel

Because, you see, it's always about Israel.

While several members of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), the UN's top human rights body are trying to put together an emergency meeting to investigate the violent government crackdowns against protesters in the Middle East and North Africa, they're having problems getting the 16 signatures necessary to force a special session.

Diplomats who spoke anonymously to the reporters involved confirmed that the resistance to holding a meeting came from Muslim countries belonging The Organization of the Islamic Conference,(OIC) whose members constitute a major bloc in the 47-nation Human Rights Council, They said the OIC wouldn't consent to holding such a meeting.

"We think that the events that are taking place do not merit some kind of a special session," said Zamir Akram, Pakistan's ambassador to the U.N. in Geneva.

He accused those advocating a special session of double standards, and said the OIC would use any such meeting to focus on human rights abuses by Israel instead.

Yup, Obama and Hillary were certainly right, the US belonging to the UNHRC and funding it was certainly going to change things, wasn't it?
