Worst of the United Nations

There are 7 countries where atheists can be legally executed for not being religious, 9 countries that allow execution for the crime of being gay, 11 that allow execution for the crime of leaving Islam, and 12 that allow execution for the crime of blasphemy. Throughout over 12 years of operation and over 100 condemnations, the UN Human Rights Council has only targeted two of those countries.


LinkState murder of atheists: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, Sudan, Mauritania, Maldives
State murder of gay people: Mauritania, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, Nigeria, Brunei,
State murder of apostates: Mauritania, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Brunei
LinkState murder of Blasphemers: Mauritania, Sudan, Somalia, Nigeria, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Brunei
UNHRC Condemnations of above countries: Sudan (2), Iran (5)

And if you think such actions are restricted to the lowest rungs in the UN chain of command, even the LinkUN secretary-general himself backed the Hutu regime while it was performing genocide by disguising weapons as relief material.

UN Human Rights Council: UN antisemitism, anti-Armenian hatred, and pro-OIC bias
The UN has repeatedly engaged in antisemitic and anti-Armenian conduct. The UN has refused to take action against Holocaust-denying terrorist groups which call for wars against the Jews such as Hezbollah and Hamas, while condemning the Jewish state, Israel, for fighting these groups. The UN has also refused to condemn Turkey and Azerbaijan for actively engaging in and promoting denial of the Armenian Genocide, in which the Young Turks regime murdered over 1 million innocent Armenians.

So why does the UN continue to engage in such conduct? Well, it's quite simple really, the self-described biggest voting bloc in the UN, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, abbreviated as the OIC, a Saudi, Iranian, Turkish, and Pakistani-backed foundation that has huge sway and influence in the UN General Assembly, UN Human Rights Council, and even UN Security Council, among other UN bodies, benefits from one and not the other. The OIC is able to control the votes in the Africa and Asia-Pacific regions of the UN and elect friendly representative states in those regions as a result (note: these regions hold a combined total of 26 out of 47 votes); Even many non-OIC members are closely economically and politically linked to OIC member states and can be swayed to vote alongside the OIC.
The UN Human Rights Council seems to exist only to condemn the enemies of the OIC, more specifically enemies of the Gulf Cooperation Council (consisting of Saudi Arabia and it's close allies). UN Watch, an organization founded to monitor UN adherence to it's own charter, has created Linka list of countries by number of UNHRC condemnations, and a Linkmap has been created based off of this information, clearly showing the disproportionate number of condemnations.

Given the rather small list of nations the over 100 condemnations were handed out to, I can simply list them all in order of least to most condemnations:

  • Honduras (1 condemnation) - Honduras seems like a fairly inoffensive country, at least next to it's neighbors. Honduras supported Trump in the Jerusalem vote against Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan, the most powerful member nations of the OIC.

  • Libya (2 condemnations) - Libya was itself and continues to be a member of the OIC, which might seem counterintuitive, however, the UNHRC is ultimately more loyal to the GCC than the Iranians, and the GCC wanted Libya out of the picture, hence why the Saudis backed an Arab Spring revolt in Libya, destroying the country.

  • Sudan (2 condemnations) - Another anti-Saudi OIC member condemned, Sudan was allied with Turkey, Qatar and the Muslim Brotherhood, who came to blows with the Saudis and their allies in Egypt. Sudan also supports the Hamas terrorist organization, which has clashed violently with the Saudi-backed PLO in the Gaza strip.

  • Sri Lanka (3 condemnations) - It's not immediately clear why Sri Lanka of all countries would be on this rather small list of supposed major human rights abusers, it's not particularly hostile nor friendly to the OIC, nor a major human rights abuser that could be condemned simply to give the UNHRC an appearance of legitimacy; Sri Lanka is a major trade partner of OIC enemy Israel, however.

  • Eritrea (4 condemnations) - Though Eritrea doesn't respect the rights of freedom of the press, democracy, or religion to the extent it likely should, a swarm of other countries respect them much less and do not receive any condemnation whatsoever. Eritrea is separated from countries that get off Scot-Free for the same actions by it's foreign policy, Eritrea and Yemen (a Saudi ally) went to war over an archipelago of islands several decades ago, and the Eritrean president Isaias Afewerki received medical treatment in Israel (a Saudi enemy), making them a clear target for Saudi interests.

  • Belarus (5 condemnations) - I don't really have any complains about Belarus' placement on this list, or the number of condemnations it's received, nor do I see these as political tools for any bad actor in the OIC. However, it remains suspicious that Belarus made the cut for a condemnation while so many other nations did not (see uncondemned human rights abusers section)

  • Iran (5 condemnations) - While Iran is certainly a human rights abuser and deserves condemnation, it's rather apparent that Iran's condemnation is not out of legitimate concern for the rights of it's citizens on the part of the UNHRC, but out of hatred for it's status as an opponent of the Saudi Arabians and their allies. From Syria, to Yemen, to Bahrain, to Lebanon, to Iraq, Iran and Saudi Arabia have been funding one anothers' enemies all over West Asia and beyond. Iran murders gay people, promotes antisemitism, sponsors terrorism, and bashes religious minorities, but so many other countries do the same and face no condemnation, with the only differences being that they are not enemies of the Arabians (see uncondemned human rights abusers section). While the UN may take issue with Iran when possible to bolster the legitimacy of Saudi Arabia's proxy war, Iran was appointed to LinkUN Women, an organization dedicated to the advancement of womens' rights, despite having ultraauthoritarian headscarf laws imposed upon all women of the nation.

  • North Korea (8 condemnations) - While most sane people would probably think that any list of human rights abusers would have North Korea at the top of the list, the UNHRC doesn't even place it within the top 3. North Korea has received only 8 condemnations despite it's years upon years of state terrorism, state-sponsored terrorism, arbitrary arrests, rogue state actions, and brutal torture and murder directed against it's own citizens. North Korea has most likely only been condemned because the OIC knows it can't get away with having 0 condemnations against the country-sized concentration camp masquerading as a nation.

  • Myanmar (12 condemnations) - Myanmar is a democratic nation which has been constantly under attack since the 1940s by a horde of various groups, some of which are Islamic terrorist groups made up of members of the Rohingya ethnic minority, such as the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Arakan Rohingya Nationalist Organization (ARNO) and Rohingya Solidarity Organisation (RSO); Many of these groups are affiliated with OIC members to varying degrees, and the OIC would likely benefit from an independent Rohingya nation ruled by any of several of these organizations, giving clear incentive for the UNHRC to condemn Myanmar if it were representing OIC interests.

  • Syria (18 condemnations) - Syria is an opponent of both the Turkish and Saudi factions of the OIC, and both hope to see the Free Syrian Army replace the Assad government. The UNHRC has not condemned the Saudi/Turk-backed Syrian rebels.

  • Israel (62 condemnations) - When one country on a human rights violation list has more condemnations than North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Zimbabwe combined, you can tell that human rights violations list is bogus, even moreso if Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Zimbabwe have a combined total number of 0 condemnations, and even moreso if that one country is Israel. Israel is a democratic country that recognizes gay marriages, gives men and women equal rights, and protects the rights of even it's tiny religious minorities such as the Druze and the Bahai. The only reason Israel has any condemnations at all is because it is an enemy of all four major powers that are OIC member states (Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Iran). Even if one is not fond of Israel's self-defense operations against terrorist organizations such as Hamas, the PLO, and Hezbollah, Israel receiving 62 condemnations while North Korea receives 8 should self-evidently be completely absurd.


Even if one were to agree with all of these entries, however, which is already a fairly weak position, the list of uncondemned human rights abusers is indefensible. None of the following countries have recieved even a single condemnation by the UNHRC:

  • Zimbabwe - One of two modern countries with overtly racist laws (not counting affirmative action), Zimbabwe seizes property from private citizens based on their ethnicity, and the would-be president for life (dictator) Robert Mugabe, who deposed democratically elected Rhodesian leaders Abel Muzorewa and Josiah Zion Gumede, has openly stated that white people will never own land in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe is also an LGBT rights violator.

  • Qatar (UNHRC member state) - A state sponsor of terrorism that executes gay people and where women who come fourth about being raped are imprisoned for adultery.

  • United Arab Emirates (UNHRC member state) - In the United Arab Emirates, blasphemy is illegal, and leaving Islam is a crime punishable by death, in addition, the UAE-based Zayed Center for Coordination and Follow-Up, funded by the UAE's president and chaired by his son, openly promoted holocaust denial and called the Jews "enemies of all nations", as well as promoting other ridiculous anti-semitic canards such as claiming that Israel was developing an "ethnic bomb" to kill only arabs. The UAE is one of several nations to retain backwards, totalitarian "male guardianship" laws, which strips women of their basic human rights in a number of ways, but despite this, the UAE is a member of the LinkUN women executive board, and, unsurprisingly, is an OIC member and close associate of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

  • Pakistan (UNHRC member state) - Pakistan is a state sponsor of terrorist groups in Afghanistan and Kashmir such as Lashkar-e-Taiba (Al-Qaeda affiliate), the Palestine Liberation Organization, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Lashkar-e-Omar, the Mullah Nazir Group (Al-Qaeda affiliate), and Harakat-ul-Mujahideen (Al-Qaeda affiliate). In Pakistan, apostasy from Islam is punishable by death. Pakistan is a powerful member of the OIC.

  • Malaysia (Former UNHRC member state) - Being Shiite, Ibadi, or any other non-Sunni sect of Islam is illegal in Malaysia, as is leaving Islam. Malaysia is a member of the OIC.

  • Liberia - one of two countries with openly racist laws, Liberia requires all it's citizens be black, and is one of only a select few remaining nations to allow female genital mutilation. Liberia is not a member of the OIC itself, and the failure of the UNHRC to condemn their barbaric practices likely has nothing to do with political biases, but simply a lack of regard for human rights in general.

  • Egypt (UNHRC member state) - A gross violator of human rights where journalists are arrested and citizens are subject to rights violations based on their gender, sexual orientation, and religion. Egypt is an OIC member and close ally of Saudi Arabia.

  • Turkey - A rogue nation that had engaged in modern-day colonialism in Cyprus, creating the illegitimate state of "Northern Cyprus" which has been granted OIC observer status, has attacked and battered it's neighbor Greece, and engages in Armenian Genocide Denial while supporting wars against the Armenian minority in Azerbaijan. Turkey is an important and powerful member of the OIC.

  • Yemen - Yemen is, without exaggeration, the worst country on Earth for womens' rights; Women essentially do not have rights in Yemen but, because the country is an OIC member and close ally of Saudi Arabia, it has received zero condemnations.

  • Saudi Arabia (UNHRC member state) - A casual observer might think Saudi Arabia is on a quest to violate every human right possible, from LGBT rights (gay death penalty), to womens' rights (women are barely treated as human under Saudi law), to the rights of children (child marriage is legal in Arabia), to religious rights (Saudi Arabia has declared that all atheists are terrorists), not to mention being a state sponsor of terrorism. Saudi Arabia was on the UN blacklist of nations which kill children but Linkseems to have coerced the UN Secretary General with threats of violence and fund-cutting to be removed from the list.

UN bias against Rhodesia, inaction towards rampant Zimbabwean crimes


Prime Minister Abel Muzorewa

The government of Rhodesia was condemned in LinkUN Security Council Resolution 253, LinkUN Security Council 333, and LinkUN Security Council resolution 437, the Rhodesian government found an internal settlement in 1978 which would hold democratic elections preserving the rights of the white Rhodesian minority while granting the black majority the majority of government power, which the UN condemned in LinkUNSCR 423, solidifying a clear agenda not based on any legitimate concern for the self-determination of Rhodesian blacks, but hatred for Ian Smith and his concern for the self-determination of Rhodesian whites.

Later in 1979, the legitimately democratically elected government of Rhodesia, headed by Abel Muzorewa, and with a legislature controlled primarily by Black political parties, was overthrown by the terrorist Robert Mugabe, who became prime minister, and later also president, of Zimbabwe. The United Nations has repeatedly failed to address the numerous crimes the Mugabe regime has committed.

Mugabe was an open racist during his war of terror against the Rhodesian people, and remained one during his terms as president and prime minister. Mugabe Linkconsidered white people parasites and stole their land based only on their ethnic background, and after taking over Rhodesia and deposing the elected government, Linkdeclared that whites would never own land in zimbabwe, and that the Linkcold-blooded murders of whites should not be prosecuted. None of these comments have warranted any significant action from the UN, despite their overtly racist nature.

Mugabe was not only racist against whites, but committed numerous crimes against blacks as well, such as the Linkstate-sponsored death squads targeting opposition voters, even carrying out a genocide against a rival black tribe shortly after deposing the Rhodesian government, in the LinkGukurahundi against the Matabele people, killing thousands or perhaps even tens of thousands of people in the process. Despite overt racism, support for murder, terrorism, and carrying out an outright genocide, Mugabe faced not a single condemnation from the UN Human Rights Council or otherwise any significant action on the part of the UN.

Mugabe was overthrown himself from his position in 2017, but it remains to be seen what effect this will have on Zimbabwe, it's now minuscule white minority population, it's relationship with the United Nations, and the international community at large.
The Joke of "UN Women"
"UN women" is an organization I've already briefly referenced, specifically the memberships of Iran and the UAE, two countries with overtly misogynistic, sexist laws that have somehow made their way into an international body supposedly dedicated to the empowerment of women. Of course, it's no coincidence that these countries are both OIC members, other questionable UN Women executive nations are as follows:

All membership data sourced from Linkunwomen.org archive, January 2018

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
Wikileaks called the UNESCO "an international human rights joke", and described it's conduct towards Wikileaks itself as an "Orwellian absurdity beyond words". The UNESCO Linkfunded a magazine which promoted Adolf Hitler for nearly a year after the incident occurred, Linkestablished a chair at the Islamic University of Gaza (an institute co-founded by the terrorist organization Hamas which has Linkused the building as a base to conduct terror operations from), and falsely claimed that the Jewish holy site Rachel's Tomb was part of the supposed "Occupied Palestinian Territories", despite the Oslo Accords placing the site under Israeli jurisdiction.

The UNESCO Executive Board's ranks include Egypt, Iran, Malaysia, Sudan, Pakistan, the UAE, and Qatar.

OHCHR and the bogus anti-Eritrea smear
The Office of the [United Nations] High Commissioner for Human Rights, or OHCHR, is an agency currently lead by Prince Zeid bin Ra'ad, a prince of the Kingdom of Iraq, but politically affiliated with his birth country of Jordan. Our dear friend the prince placed a man by the name of Anders Kompass on leave for providing the French government details on the sexual abuses committed in the Central African Republic by French peacekeepers, but also criticized the Saudi intervention in Yemen, and the latter will probably not pan out well for him given what we've seen so far. The OHCHR is meant to advise the UN Human Rights Council, and we've seen how good of a job the UNHRC has been doing on this groups' advice.

The OHCHR has accused the nation of Eritrea of Link"chilling accounts of human rights violations that amount to crimes against humanity", a bold claim that Linka massive number of Eritreans and others from 81 countries across the globe came together to condemn as untrue, and which an expert on the war in Somalia who has traveled to Eritrea many times, Bronwyn Bruton, has called Linkindefensible. Bronwyn explained the obvious problems with the methodology of this report:

"There are also a lot of problems with the Commission of Inquiry’s research methodology in producing the original report. The Commission refused to consider the academic literature on Eritrea; refused to use press reports; refused to speak with experts who’d traveled recently to the country; refused to speak to UN staff and Western diplomats inside the country; and refused to consider the testimony of many thousands of Eritreans who supported the government. They spoke only to refugees who self-identified as having suffered violations of their rights, and because Sudan and Djibouti refused (like Eritrea) to host the COIE, the team was only able to do field research in Ethiopia, which is effectively at war with Eritrea."

A near-baseless accusation based only on the testimonies of those who would hugely benefit from Eritrea being deemed a human rights abuser (granting them comparatively luxurious conditions in several countries) and citizens of a decades-long enemy of Eritrea effectively at war with it. A report based only on such evidence should not be published at all, it would be like reporting the human rights abuses of America based only on the claims of expatriates who fled following Trump's election and investigations in Cuba.

So why would the UN, which as we've very clearly seen demonstrated has a consistent bias towards supporting Saudi and OIC interests, have anything against the Eritreans? Well it most likely dates back to 1993, when Eritrean president Isaias Afewerki traveled to Israel (a Saudi enemy) for medical treatment. Later, in 1995, Yemen (a close ally of the Saudis, member of the OIC, and member of the Arab League) began construction of a resort on an island it had a dispute with Eritrea over before negotiations were set to start; The Eritreans gave Yemen an ultimatum to leave which they refused, resulting in war. In the following decade, in 2008, the Eritreans clashed with another Saudi ally and Arab League/OIC member, Djibouti. The Arab League Linksupported Djubouti in this conflict

It's worth keeping in mind, of course, that while Eritrea faces condemnation by the UN, it's enemy Yemen not only faces no such condemnation, but in fact sits in the very council meant to oppose some of it's most vile and reprehensible offenses. The OHCHR's report was in line with claims by Amnesty International, an NGO which has been shown to be Linkvery impartial Linkand ridiculously skewed on several issues.
