UN ‘Israeli War Crimes’ Vote Reveals the West is Isolated

Israeli War Crimes’ Vote Reveals the West is Isolated

The Western media focussed on the irrelevant and ‘unanimous’ UN Security Council ‘ceasefire’ vote, which only guarantees the fighting and slaughter will escalate. Another UN vote within hours of the ‘ceasfire’ vote – of immense significance and hardly touched-upon in the Western media – exposed the real world-wide divisions and alliances embroiled in this global Lebanon war. In a crucial 27-11 vote, the UN Human Rights Council (UNHCR) condemned Israeli war crimes and agreed ‘immediately despatch a high-level Inquiry Commission to Lebanon’.

And how did the votes go?

“In favour (27):Algeria, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Cuba, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Jordan, Malaysia, Mali, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Pakistan, Peru, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Uruguay, and Zambia.

Against (11):Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, United Kingdom, and Ukraine.

Abstentions (8):Cameroon, Gabon, Ghana, Guatemala, Nigeria, Philippines, Republic of Korea, and Switzerland.”

That's right Canada voted against!!!! It's time for an election.
Thanks to YayaCanada where I found this article.

Yes, it's time, but as Liberal, I'd like to wait until we have a leader:).

Seriously though, we can't be too surprised by this. Voting for, would have completely contradicted Harper's stance.

I used to be proud of Canada's place in the world, vis a vis Human Rights. I'm still proud that Louise Arbour speaks with a Canadian voice and vision.

Day by day, Harper's stances are going to chip away at our collective pride...then, he'll be voted out.

It can't be soon enough for me.
