I'm With Norm!

Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) that is. Because Norm wants to address a waste of taxpayer money - the UN Human Rights Council.
Jerusalem ( - Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) wants the U.S. to cut its funding to the United Nations Human Rights Council because it focuses too much on Israel's alleged transgressions and ignores other countries' abuses, news reports said. Coleman said Israel is the only item on the council's agenda. "You've got countries like North Korea, Burma, Zimbabwe where you have state-sponsored brutality, and what we have is deafening silence," Coleman was quoted as saying. The U.N. Human Rights Council was established a year ago to replace the discredited U.N. Commission on Human Rights. But in the first eleven months of the reconstituted group's existence, Israel was the only country it had censured. "As of June 2007, it had adopted nine condemnatory resolutions and held three special sessions against the Jewish state," U.N. Watch said on its website. The only other situation it specifically addressed was that in Darfur, but it did not find Sudan guilty of violations, the website noted.

Why is our money wasted on a anti-Israel, human rights violating Human Rights Council? What have they done, other than hate Jews? Have they addressed the problem in the Sudan? No. Have they talked about Iran, Zimbabwe, any Muslim country? No, no, and noooooooo! The UN Human Rights Council is a joke and has been ever since they let Syria on it, followed by other human rights violators. So we need to quit spending money on it.

Thanks Norm, I am right there with you.

Mr Minority
