Miguel D’Escoto Brockmann embraced Ahmadinejad in 2008, and called Israel an “Apartheid state”. Now he is appointed adviser for the UN Human Rights Council
Nicaraguan ex-Sandinista Miguel d’Escoto is already abusing his new mandate as adviser to the UN Human Rights Council
On September 17, 2008, D’Escoto embraced President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad after the Iranian leader delivered a strongly anti-Israel and anti-Zionist speech to the UN General Assembly. In response, Professor Gabriela Shalev, Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, called D’Escoto an “Israel hater.”
As the Geneva-based non-governmental organization UN Watch warned last week, controversial ex-Sandinista Miguel d’Escoto is already abusing his new mandate as adviser to the UN Human Rights Council to promote divisive politics, pledging today on Colombian TV to use his UN podium specifically to target the U.S., which he compared to a “monster,” and Israel.
“A man who has eagerly sided with international criminals such as Iran’s Ahmadinejad and Sudan’s Al-Bashir has no credibility on human rights, and embodies precisely the inverted morality and debased political culture that currently reigns at the UN Human Rights Council, which just this week added Col. Qaddafi’s Libya as a member,” said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer.

The United Nations (UN) is in principle a good idea. But in practical life, the organization is a disaster.
If the World only were a gathering of free and democratic states, the UN would be able to establish peace and promote co-existence between people of different races and cultures.
But since almost 100 nations are ruled by cruel and evil dictators, there is not much hope. United Nations has become their tool for doing evil.
I regards to the UN support for gangster states like Iran and Libya, and their constant condemnation of Israel, there is no hope that this forum with its HQ in New York, can be of any use for people who love the truth.
