Administraţia SUA îndeamnă Consiliul ONU pentru Drepturile Omului să pună capăt „obsesiei de Israel”


Administraţia Donald Trump analizează posibilitatea revizuirii participării în Consiliul ONU pentru Drepturile Omului, pledând pentru reformarea agendei instituţiei şi pentru încetarea „obsesiei faţă de Israel”, afirmă un oficial american citat de site-ul agenţiei Reuters.

Washingtonul a argumentat mult timp că instituţia ONU, cu sediul la Geneva, s-ar concentra în mod incorect pe presupuse încălcări ale drepturilor omului în Israel.

North Korea: UN rights probe shows ‘unspeakable atrocities’ – Fugari nord-coreeni au făcut „mărturii de nedescris” pentru anchetatorii ONU

Michael Kirby, who headed the inquiry, told the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday that the witness testimonies were not isolated cases. He also stated that besides the torture, the inmates are also subjected to mass starvation: „They had to live on rodents, grasshoppers, lizards and grass”.

Kirby said the independent inquiry would seek to determine which North Korean institutions and officials were responsible. The report did not say what kind of prosecution might be considered. North Korea is not a member of the International Criminal Court, but the U.N. Security Council can ask the Hague-based court to investigate alleged abuses by non-signatories. North Korean diplomat Kim Yong Ho said the inquiry was a fake and defamatory „political plot” to force regime change in North Korea. It had been politicized by the European Union and Japan, „in alliance with the U.S. hostile policy”, Kim said. „We will continue to oppose any attempt of regime change and pressure under pretext of ‘human rights protection’,” he said. North Korea’s main ally China, joined by Belarus and Syria, were among countries defending it during the 90-minute debate. (

„Mărturiile sunt reprezentative pe scară largă şi constituie încălcări sistematice şi barbare ale drepturilor omului”, a declarat Michael Kirby, cel care a condus interviurile. Totuşi, Coreea de Nord neagă adevărul acestor fapte şi chiar existenţa lagărelor de concentrare.

A UN rights investigation into North Korea has shown there is evidence of widespread violations by the state.

Those who survived North Korean prisons suffered „unspeakable atrocities”, said the UN panel, who interviewed exiles and former prisoners.

A North Korean official in Geneva, where the findings were presented on Tuesday, denied the findings.

The North is frequently accused of rights violations, including torture, abductions and running prison camps.

The UN panel members of this landmark investigation into North Korea interviewed witnesses in Seoul, South Korea, and Tokyo, Japan, last month.

The panel was set up to investigate „the systematic, widespread and grave violations of human rights” in North Korea, the UN said in a previous statement.

Michael Kirby, who headed the inquiry, told the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday that the witness testimonies were not isolated cases.

„They are representative of large-scale patterns that may constitute systematic and gross human rights violations,” he said as part of the panel’s preliminary report.

He added the testimonies gave „a face and voice to great human suffering”.

Some of the atrocities reported included a woman forced to drown her own baby; children imprisoned from birth and starved; and families tortured for watching a foreign soap opera.

Mr Kirby told BBC World TV that they had received testimony from people who had been born into the prison camps because their family members were already there.

„They had to live on rodents, grasshoppers, lizards and on grass and they were subject to cruelty,” he said.

Mr Kirby said that one case told of inmates having to watch the public execution of their mother and brother.

He added: „All in all it is a very horrifying story, the like of which I don’t think I’ve seen or read of since the Khmer Rouge [in Cambodia] and the Nazi atrocities during the second world war.”

The panel have yet to determine those responsible for the violations.

North Korea, however, has dismissed the report as part of a defamatory campaign aimed at regime change. It has not co-operated with the investigation and denies the existence of prison camps.

North Korean ambassador, So Se-pyong, told the council that the evidence was „fabricated and invented by forces hostile” to the country.

UN investigators have repeatedly asked Pyongyang to let them into the country, but their requests have been refused so far.

The final UN report is not due until March next year. Reporting from

The 3 Deadliest Words In The World – „It’s A Girl” : Evan Grae Davis – Gendercide: the greatest human rights issue of our time & the greatest form of violence in the world

Photo credit

Here is an article whose subject – gendercide- is absolutely devastating. The statistics are staggering.

What is gendercide? Gendercide is the systematic killing of members of a specific sex. 

The ugly facts of gendercide: China and India kill more girls than are born in the whole United States in one year. And then the aftermath: In China there are 37 million more men than women, leading to kidnappings of women from other countries and resulting in a high number of child brides. Filmmaker Evan Grae Davis has filmed a documentary that focuses on these two countries.

Even in a secular society, life is the most basic human right there is. For those of us that live our lives for the God who created us, it is much, much more. Psalm 127:3 says, „Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” Ezekiel 16:36-38 speaks about the judgment against those that gave the blood of their children to their idols. Jeremiah 22:17 speaks about „shedding innocent blood, and for practicing oppression and violence.” Just look at the picture below, the terrified women held in a cell and awaiting a brutal forced abortion after having been busted in by the Family Planning Police of China and arrested. And then there is Exodus 20:13 „You shall not murder”, one of 10 commandments given to mankind.

The 3 Deadliest Words In The World – „It’s A Girl”

Photo credit and story below from

In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called „gendercide”.

This is a trailer for a documentary that shows some of the faces of women and societies in China and India that contribute to the genocide of girls. Following a 3 minute documentary trailer for the film, ‘It’s a Girl’ director Evan Grae Davis gives a TEDxTalk.

About the speaker:
From the Aral Sea disaster in Eastern Europe to poverty in Africa to social transformation among tribal groups of South America, ‘It’s a Girl’ director Evan Grae Davis has traveled the globe with camera in hand for 16 years. Evan has dedicated his career to advocating for social justice through writing and directing short documentaries and educational videos championing the cause of the poor and exploited. Evan draws from his experience and passion as he lends leadership to Shadowline Films, a team of filmmakers who share a common concern for the critical issues of our time. It’s a Girl is his first feature-length documentary.

It’s a girl, a film being released this year, documents the practice of killing unwanted baby girls in South Asia. The trailer’s most chilling scene is one with an Indian woman who, unable to contain her laughter, confesses to having killed eight infant daughters.

The statistics are sickening. The UN reports approximately 200 million girls in the world today are ‘missing’. India and China are said to eliminate more female infants than the number of girls born in the US each year. Lianyungang in China has the worst infant gender ratio on record with 163 boys born for every 100 girls. Taiwan, South Korea and Pakistan are also countries in which unwanted female babies are aborted, killed or abandoned.

About the talk:
Evan talks about the global problem of female genocide using some eye opening statistics, powerful real life experiences and most importantly through his documentary making journey. His documentary is called „It’s a girl”.

Violence against women – What is the church’s response

Sunday was declared International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women by the United Nations. Dr. Russell Moore, Dean of the School of Theology and Senior Vice President for Academic Administration at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary wrote an excellent post here –

I have to say that this is the strongest language I have seen used by a church leader and it is right on the mark. Dr. Moore points out that men will stand at the „Judgment seat of Christ, at which they will give account of how they cared for their families”.  And he advises that  church leaders must tell women in the congregations that-

A man who hits you has surrendered his headship, and that is the business both of the civil state in enacting public justice and of this church in enacting church discipline.”

In the public arena, Dr. Moore also urges that christians-

..should call on the powers-that-be to prosecute abusers of women and children in ways that will deter others and make clear society’s repugnance at such abuse.
