Right now, ANYTHING can spark off WW3. NKorean, Japan Rearmament,Iran Belligerances, Radical Jihadist demons rampaging in North Africa and world soon,
China's domestic economic woes with its angry citizens, etc, not just Israel Palestine issue, IF saner and pragmatic heads do not prevail.
A short history on UNHRC:-
It was started off as UNCHR as a subsidiary of the UN general assembly. Unfortunately, back then, members who were voted into that subsidiary is ad
hoc and whomever who was present, with no oversight and worse, without any credibility, as vote buying was rampant to secure a voice on the
international stage by smaller but agenda driven petrol wealthy states in support by those whom need that oil such as China and Russia, and those
states whom needed weath such as tiny corrupted african states - with a sole and single aim directed at Israel, while neglecting other human right
abuses elsewhere in the world.
By 2006, reforms took place to evolve into UNHRC, with criterias set that only responsible and Human Rights observing committed nations would be
allowed to be elected to the 47 seat council out of 193 nations, with term limits, along with supposed better regulatory and oversight framework.
Many more human right abusing nations were called to tasked, but its ineffective president - Remigiusz Henczel, lacks charisma and organizational
ability, easily ridden with its members pooping on his head, and so far had played only reactive roles - when abuses happen, than to conduct risk
Worse still was his support for the Special Rapporteur Richard Falk as the top man for Disputed terroritories. Falk is a legal expert and written many
books, but he a well known and incorrigble anti-semite, whom prefers to fault find nit pick on Israel, rather than focusing on the WHOLE issue of both
sides being responsible.
Even though a reformed UNHRC, corruption still rules, as bloc voting by oil wealthy smaller states and their dependents is COMMON.
And thus, UN's funds are used up mainly to attack Israel, while other human right abusing nations gets neglected or off focused.
What is the solution, if seemingly adult boys treat UN and UNHRC as schoolyard playgrounds?
Even though I am an insignificant nobody, but I still must respect my society's agreed upon laws and be held accountable fo my actions, even here as
I must respect ATS T&C,being a member, and be held fully alone responsible for my written content and posts.
Point is - No human must be allowed to be held UNaccountable, for we are all onlyl mortals with flaws, and CANNOT be allowed to left unchecked, to do
as we please without consideration for others sharing our space.
The UN, WHO, UNHRC is not some quasi political theocracy, whereby the officers are gods who dictate to mankind.
Thus each and every member nation of UN, WHO, UNHRC and other subsidiaries, as well as every office holder there MUST EQUALLY be held responsible for
their recommendations and decisions made, to be praised if what they had done had achieved good results, or to be imprisoned if they had committed
atrocities, or their works resulted in mass chaos and slaughter.
UNHRC watches over human rights, but who watches over them? The answer is ALL Mankind, and not just a special interest agenda filled group.
