    How can an organisation be taken seriously with such an appalling record of complacency and indifference to the worlds major traumas. Failed to intervene in the Rwanda massacres. Failed to intervene during 1995 killings in Srebrenica. Failed to effectively intervene during the Second Congo War, which claimed nearly five million people in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Failed miserably to administer the oil for food transactions in Iraq. How can an organisation which promotes HUMAN RIGHTS allow countries like Cuba, Libya, Iran, to sit on its committees when they flagrantly disregard commit abuses in their own nations. "On May 4, 2004, United States ambassador Sichan Siv walked out of the commission following the uncontested election of Sudan to the commission, calling it an ?absurdity?, pointing out Sudan?s problems with ethnic cleansing in the Darfur region." ?A government that engages in wholesale abuses of its citizens should not be eligible for a seat at the table, especially a country just criticized by the commission,? said Joanna Weschler, U.N. delegate for Human Rights Watch, one of 10 advocacy groups that issued a protest statement. (Reuters) Yet this corrupt body with the GA at its black heart passes resolution after resolution condemning Israel as if they are the greatest tragedy to have inflicted mankind! One major consequence of the election of Sudan to the commission is the lack of willingness for some countries to work through the commission. Indeed, on July 30, 2004 it was the United Nations Security Council, not the Commission, that passed a resolution threatening Sudan with unspecified sanctions. Is this what happens when the OIC hijack the UN? At least the UN has latterly made some progress in repairing its tarnished reputation with the inception of Holocaust day and its earlier rescinding of the gross equation of Zionism with Racism.Time is running out.
