Un Commission on Human Rights Says Iran and China Okay But Israel Is Not

The UN's leading human rights body yesterday voted to ignore alleged human rights abuses in Iran, following similar positions recently on China, Equatorial Guinea, Russia and Zimbabwe. It did find time to express shock at Israel's alleged atrocities.

It helps to have a large number of accused human rights violators among its 53 member states. Commission members with "disturbing human rights records" include: Algeria, Burundi, China, Cuba, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Indonesia, Kenya, Libya, Malaysia, Nigeria, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Togo and Vietnam.

The USA is not a member after being ejected in a vote last year.
