Iran Chairs U.N. Human Rights Discussion board One Month After Hamas Atrocities

Iran, the world’s main state sponsor of terrorism, will turn out to be the chair of the U.N. Human Rights Council Social Discussion board on Thursday — only one month after Iran’s purchasers in Hamas perpetrated a number of the worst atrocities in trendy historical past in opposition to Israeli civilians.

UN Watch famous that Iran was granted the rotating chairmanship of the U.N. human rights discussion board in Might. The theme for the discussion board in 2023 is utilizing expertise to advertise human rights. Solely two days earlier than it was handed the chairmanship, the medieval Iranian theocracy executed two males for the “crime” of discussing Islam’s human rights shortcomings on social media.

Six months later, Iran will assume the promised chairmanship after its terrorist proxy Hamas raped, tortured, murdered, and kidnapped greater than 1,400 Israeli civilians.

UN Watch has collected 90,000 signatures on a petition to overturn the absurd Iranian chairmanship. Its last-ditch drive to gather extra signatures contains a video posted to social media of Government Director Hillel Neuer asking the U.N. to justify naming “a regime that beats, blinds, tortures, and rapes ladies who demand their rights”:

Along with the Hamas atrocities, Iran’s ascension to chair a human rights discussion board is ill-timed as a result of one other younger lady was simply killed for supposedly violating its hijab regulation, an incident Neuer alluded to within the clip above.

The sufferer was a 16-year-old woman named Armita Geravand, who was evidently assaulted and kidnapped by the “morality police” shortly after boarding a practice on October 1. As with the homicide of Mahsa Amini in 2022 for the same hijab “offense,” Geravand’s household was compelled to inform state media interviewers that their daughter randomly collapsed for no cause and struck her head.

Video of the incident was intentionally obscured by bystanders and suppressed by the Iranian authorities, however one clip that escaped to the skin world confirmed Geravand boarding the practice with out carrying a hijab. Unbiased journalists reported Geravand was confronted by the thuggish “morality police” on board the practice, and one among them shoved her laborious sufficient to strike her head in opposition to a steel object.

Geravand slipped right into a coma from her head trauma and by no means woke up. Iranian state media reported her dying on Saturday. 

Amini’s dying by the hands of the morality police in 2022 impressed a number of the largest uprisings thus far in opposition to the brutal Iranian regime, which suppressed the protests with a violent crackdown that ought to, by itself, disqualify Tehran from holding a seat on any human rights council.

Iran was evicted from the U.N. Fee on the Standing of Ladies (UNCSW) in December 2022 as a consequence of Amini’s homicide. The regime in Tehran has not accepted duty for Amini’s dying, introduced her killers to justice, or carried out any human rights reforms since then. Quite the opposite, it has imposed much more oppressive hijab legal guidelines and extra brutal enforcement.

“It’s time for all democracies on the UN to cease legitimizing murderous regimes, in violation of the world physique’s founding rules, and as an alternative to start holding the perpetrators to account,” Neuer mentioned on Monday.

He continued:

These appointments ship the incorrect message on the incorrect time, enabling the Islamic Republic of Iran – at the same time as it’s capturing protesters within the face, raping human rights defenders in jail, and sponsoring Hamas atrocities – to strut on the worldwide stage as a revered and influential actor.

Neuer identified that Iranian state media has been trumpeting its chairmanship of the U.N. discussion board as a historic triumph in a bid to “dishearten, dispirit, and demoralize dissidents.”

The U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC), Michele Taylor, mentioned in Might that the USA was “appalled” that “a rustic with such a deplorable human rights report” can be given the chairmanship of a discussion board. 

Taylor mentioned the appointment gave unwarranted legitimacy to the Iranian regime and in addition squandered the credibility of UNHRC and its Social Discussion board:

This 12 months’s purported concentrate on the position of science, expertise, and innovation in selling post-pandemic human rights rings hole and deeply troubling in mild of this appointment. It’s abhorrent that Iran, infamous for exploiting these very instruments to suppress human rights and curb freedom of expression, would serve on the helm of this or any human rights-related occasion.

On October 19, the European Union posthumously awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, its highest human rights honor, to Mahsa Amini and the “Girl, Life, Freedom” motion her dying impressed. On Thursday, the regime that killed her and used murderous violence to crush the Girl, Life, Freedom motion is scheduled to imagine the chairmanship of a United Nations panel on human rights.
