Human rights for all, except for some

And, a-propo boycotts, here is none other than the UN trying to enact a little boycotting of its own:

... the UN is on a warpath against one particular NGO. It is poised tomorrow to revoke these basic access rights from the World Union of Progressive Judaism. Yes, the WUPJ - which represents more than 1.7 million reform, progressive, liberal and reconstructionist Jews all over the world - is about to have its privileges to attend and speak at UN events erased.

What has brought the wrath of the UN upon the heads of this righteous organization? The problem began in Jan. 24, 2008 session of the Human Rights Council:

As the council conducted its predetermined witch hunt, WUPJ representative David Littman made the mistake of referring to Hamas' genocidal charter. He began three times, quoting the charter's words that "Israel will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it," and calling upon the council to invoke the Genocide Convention.

Each time, the council president interrupted and warned him to "focus on the issue." Littman stood his ground: "The issue is what Hamas and the government in Gaza wishes to do to Israel." Bang, bang, bang went the gavel. Stymied, Littman recalled his Shakespeare and said: "There is a general malaise in the air. A feeling that something is rotten in the state of this council."

... tomorrow... the UN committee charged with ensuring NGOs' equal access rights is set to expel the WUPJ from the premises.

... Littman and the WUPJ are rare but tenacious voices who confront Islamic human rights abuses at the UN at every turn. Over the past year, Littman has complained to the council that Iranian law "still allows the marriage of girls at only 9 years old and justifies the stoning of women for alleged adultery," warned against "Sharia law [taking] supremacy over the Universal Declaration," and urged that "calls to kill in the name of Allah be unequivocally condemned."

Each time, the likes of Egypt, the Palestinian Observer and Iran have tried to shut him up.

This is what happens in a world where the foxes are charged with the task of safe-guarding the welfare of hens. Someone with talent should emulate George Orwell's example and write "Animal Farm - part two", to expose the unbelievable moral corruption of this world body.
