Hmmm... I guess since the UN kicked Libya off the Human Rights Council they needed someone new to take their place. Sounds like they found a country with a similar record..

Despite Reports of Brutality Toward Civilians, Syria to Join U.N.'s Human Rights Council

The brutal crackdown by Syrian President Bashar Assad may finally be getting the attention of world leaders -- but apparently not enough to stop Syria from becoming the newest member of the U.N. Human Rights Council.

And despite calling for an independent investigation into the crackdown, which has left hundreds dead, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon apparently won’t do much about blocking Syria’s path to the human rights group.

Are there any qualifications at all to join this council??

Huh... Its kind of like having the SS investigate Auschwitz.

To answer your question no, there does not seem to be any criteria. I am leaning more and more in favor of just getting rid of the UN and replacing it with something that actually stands for good.
