The Libyan mission to the UN is urging the community of nations to revoke the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s NGO status if it doesn’t apologize for criticizing Muammar Qaddafi’s human rights record.
At an NGO committee meeting on Friday, Libya, one of 19 nations tasked with reviewing and reaccrediting the world body’s 2,234 non-governmental organizations, demanded a letter of apology from the Wiesenthal Center for denouncing the UN Human Rights Commission’s choice of chairman.
So the Chair of the Human Rights Commission can’t handle free speech. Does this ban include the screams of prisoners being tortured in Tripoli?
God, won’t someone please kill this thing and put it out of our misery?
Alas, I fear the UN is like death and taxes…
