Commemorated around the world, today is Human Rights Day.
The date was chosen to honour the United Nations (UN) — General Assembly's adoption and proclamation, on December 10, 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), the first global enunciation of human rights and one of the first major achievements of the new UN.
Now for the unfortunate reality:The formal establishment of Human Rights Day occurred at the 317th Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on December 4, 1950.
That's the Zion-loathing racket that sees nothing wrong about China, Cuba and Saudi Arabia and other such paragons of thugdom acting as the arbiters of "human rights" in the world. I'd sooner celebrate dysentery and/or scrofula than celebrate its 20th or, indeed, any of its anniversaries.This year's day is also significant in its celebration of the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
