Ten Questions for Ban Ki-moon as He Visits Canada Today
As UN chief Ban Ki-moon today continues his high-profile visit to Canada with an address at McGill University, UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer, a graduate of McGill, invited students to ask the secretary-general 10 basic questions concerning UN actions over the past year, which new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does not appear to have asked yesterday:
10: If the UN supports women’s rights, why did they elect mysoginistic Iran to the board of UN Women?
9: Given warnings of genocide by Burundi, why did the UN just elect that regime as a member of its Human Rights Council?
8: If the UN cares about children’s rights, why did they cover up peacekeepers’ rape of children in Central African Republic—and then punish and suspend Anders Kompass, the one official who tried to stop the abuse?
7: If the UN believes in ethics and good government, why was UN General Assembly past president John Ashe just arrested, in the words of the U.S. Attorney, for having “sold himself and the global institution he led” by allegedly pocketing more than $1 million in bribes to finance a luxury spending spree, which included Rolex watches, custom suits, a BMW, and a private basketball court?
6: If the UN cares about genocide, why did UNESCO recently elect genocidal Sudan to a leadership post?
5: If the UN Charter believes in equality and proportionality, why did the UN General Assembly condemn Israel 20 times last year, with only 3 resolutions for the rest of the world combined?
4: Why was Algerian dipomat Idriss Jazairy, who notoriously campaigned to muzzle UN rights experts, himself elected a UN rights expert?
3: After the deadly Islamist terror attacks in Paris, why did UN expert Alfred de Zayas try to blame France and the West?
2. Why on Feb. 25th is the UN planning to reelect Syria to a leadership post on the Decolonization Committee, whose purpose is to end the “subjugation of peoples”?
1: Why did the UN recently elect Saudi Arabia to behead of a UN Human Rights Council panel that names human rights experts?
