Ukraine invasion: United Nations is being 'challenged'
Quote
The US ambassador to the UN gives an impassioned speech to the UN assembly ahead of a vote on a resolution condemning Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield said the United Nations was being 'challenged' by Russia's 'indiscriminate' attacks on Ukraine and war crimes were being committed.

The resolution received a two-thirds majority of those voting, minus abstentions, in the 193-member Assembly, with 93 nations voting in favour and 24 against.

Fifty-eight abstained from the process.

Russia, China, Cuba, North Korea, Iran, Syria, Vietnam, were among those who voted against.

Those abstaining, included India, Brazil, South Africa, Mexico, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Qatar, Kuwait, Iraq, Pakistan, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Cambodia.

The meeting marked the resumption of a special emergency session on the war in Ukraine and followed reports of violations committed by Russian forces.

This past weekend, disturbing photos emerged from the city of Bucha, a suburb of the capital, Kyiv, where hundreds of civilian bodies were found in the streets and in mass graves following Russia’s withdrawal from the area.

Prior to the vote, Ukrainian Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya urged countries to support the resolution.

“Bucha and dozens of other Ukrainian cities and villages, where thousands of peaceful residents have been killed, tortured, ****, abducted and robbed by the Russian Army, serve as an example of how dramatically far the Russian Federation has gone from its initial declarations in the human rights domain. That is why this case is unique and today’s response is obvious and self-explanatory,” he said.

This is not the first time that a Member State has had its membership of the Human Rights Council suspended. Libya lost its seat in 2011, following repression of protests by ruler Muammar Gaddafi, who was later overthrown.

Gennady Kuzmin, Deputy Russian ambassador, in remarks before the vote, called for countries to “vote against the attempt by Western countries and their allies to destroy the existing human rights architecture.”

Interesting to note how many nations voting against, or abstaining, are former victims of Western colonialism, many of which do not seem to realize that Russia itself is a former Western colonial power itself. This is what Marxism has done for the former Western colonized!!!

"many of which do not seem to realize that Russia itself is a former Western colonial power itself."

This is why we have this topic:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/colonial-era/russia-the-last-colonial-empire/

Then again, some may realize it but are under too much Russian control even in the present-day:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/putins-exploitation-africa-could-help-130002856.html

Quote
Financed by Yevgeny Prigozhin, sometimes called “Putin’s Chef” because he rose to power after running a catering company favored by the Kremlin, the Wagner Group first appeared on the scene in 2014 in Ukraine. “Putin’s shadow army” is estimated to have as many as 5,000 members and has acted as a mercenary force fighting on behalf of Russia, but in a way that allows Moscow a measure of deniability. The group has deployed to other hot spots around the world, including Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Madagascar, Mozambique, Mali, and Syria (where Wagner mercenaries fought a bloody battle with U.S. special forces in 2018).

In Sudan, where the fall of Omar al-Bashir in 2019 could have left Russia without a corrupt partner, the Wagner Group found a friend in Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo (aka Hemedti)—Sudan’s second in command and leader of the genocidal militia the Rapid Support Forces, previously known as the Janjaweed. Hemedti had made his own fortune running a shadow economy dominated by gold exports. He also helped Russia secure access to gold mines.
...
In the Central African Republic, where the Wagner Group has an outsized role and a Wagner operative serves as the president’s security advisor, a joint investigation by The Sentry and CNN established that mercenaries from the group have engaged in atrocities including murder, ****, and torture to capture areas that are rich in gold, diamonds, and other minerals. Wagner has also initiated a process to change the mining code to create a monopoly for itself in the country’s gold and diamond mining sector.

By using the Wagner Group to burrow into these resource-rich countries and secure lucrative mining concessions, Russia has been trying to future-proof itself against the kinds of sanctions now being imposed by the U.S. and its allies.

This is why we have this topic:

Many Thai royalists still talk about the diplomacy between Thai King Rama V and Russian Emperor Nicholas II that spared them from complete colonisation by either the British or the French.

Russia's UN ambassador walked out of a security council meeting after the President of the European Council blamed the Russian invasion of Ukraine for causing the global food crisis.

European Council chief Charles Michel said during the meeting in New York that Russia was using food supplies as a 'stealth missile' against the developing world forcing people into poverty.

The Russian envoy Vasily Nebenzya has accused Mr Michel of spreading lies.

Stating the obvious (but doing nothing about it):

https://www.yahoo.com/news/report-perpetual-israeli-occupation-root-133001124.html

Quote
GENEVA (AP) — Investigators commissioned by the U.N.’s top human rights body say tensions between Palestinians and Israelis are underpinned by Israel's “perpetual occupation” of Palestinian areas with no apparent intention of ending it.
...
The report's authors cited “credible” evidence that “convincingly indicates that Israel has no intention of ending the occupation” and has plans to ensure complete control of Palestinian areas. Israel’s government, it added, has been “acting to alter the demography through the maintenance of a repressive environment for Palestinians and a favorable environment for Israeli settlers.”

Of course Israel goes straight to the usual accusation (and even employs Trumpist vocabulary):

Quote
Israel’s Foreign Ministry rejected the report as “part and parcel of the witch hunt carried out by the Human Rights Council against Israel.”

It called the report biased and one-sided and accused the commission members of ignoring Palestinian violence, incitement and antisemitism.

More of the same:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/israel-us-decry-rights-monitors-202840488.html

Quote
Miloon Kothari was quoted in the media as questioning Israel’s right to be a U.N. member state and alluding to a “Jewish lobby.” The comments stoked longtime accusations by Israel, the U.S. and others that the rights body is biased against Israel.

Kothari, from India, is one of three members of the Commission of Inquiry on occupied Palestinian territory, created by the U.N.-backed Human Rights Council last year. The commission quickly countered that his comments had been deliberately misquoted.

The commission, headed by former U.N. human rights chief Navi Pillay, was set up after the 11-day war last year between Israel and the militant Hamas group in Gaza. The fighting killed at least 261 people in Gaza and 14 people in Israel, according to the U.N. rights office.

Israel’s policies in the Palestinian territories have long faced international scrutiny. Last year, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court launched an investigation into alleged Israeli crimes there, focusing on Israel’s repeated military operations in Gaza and the expansion of Jewish settlements in east Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank.

The commission is the first to have an open-ended mandate from the U.N. rights body, and critics say such permanent scrutiny shows anti-Israel bias in the 47-member-state council. Proponents support the commission as a way to keep tabs on injustices faced by Palestinians under decades of Israeli rule.

In an interview published Monday by Mondoweiss, an online publication critical of Israel’s policies toward Palestinians, Kothari spoke about the commission’s work and mandate. He cited a lack of cooperation from Israel’s government.

Asked about criticism by some governments, including that of Canada, he replied that he was “very disheartened by the social media that is controlled largely by — whether it’s the Jewish lobby or it’s specific NGOs — a lot of money is being thrown into trying to discredit us.”

The commission's role, Kothari said, was to look into humanitarian law, human rights law, and criminal law. “On all three counts, Israel is in systematic violation of all the legislation,” he said.

“I would go as far as to raise the question as why are they even a member of the United Nations, because they don’t respect — the Israeli government does not respect — its own obligations as a U.N. member state,” he added.

None of the above should even be controversial. Certainly none of it is nothing that is not already common knowledge. But of course the reaction:

Quote
Keren Hajioff, a spokeswoman for Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, said the international community should be “outraged” over Kothari's comments.

“His racist remarks about ‘the Jewish Lobby’ that controls the media and his questioning Israel’s right to exist as a member of the family of nations echo the darkest days of antisemitism,” she said.

Criticizing Jewish racism is anti-racism. Not criticizing Jewish racism (and thus approving its continuation) is what would be racist.

Quote
In a statement, the U.S. ambassador to the rights council, Michele Taylor, and the State Department’s special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism, Deborah Lipstadt, called antisemitism and anti-Israel bias a “poisonous venom” that has affected international discourse for too long — including at U.N. institutions.

They said Kothari’s comments were “outrageous, inappropriate, and corrosive" and echoed “age-old antisemitic tropes."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mich%C3%A8le_Taylor

Quote
Taylor is Jewish
...
She serves as a board member, governance chair, and the guest programming Co-Chair of the Atlanta Jewish Film Society, which hosts the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival where she has introduced films.[11]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deborah_Lipstadt

Quote
Lipstadt was born in New York City to a Jewish family
...
she also wrote a monthly column for The Jewish Spectator. Lipstadt then received a research fellowship from the Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism at Hebrew University of Jerusalem
...
Lipstadt received the 1994 National Jewish Book Award.

Why should non-Jews let Jews tell us how much criticism of Jews is acceptable? That would be as flawed as "non-whites" letting "whites" tell us how much criticism of "whites" is acceptable!

Thankfully many more commenters get it now:

Quote
Jewish lobby?  AIPAC, at whose annual meeting, the politicians from both U.S. parties line up to speak and bow down. Israel is an apartheid state that allows the brutalization of Palestinian people and the destruction of their land. Israel is in violation of the Fourth Geneva Convention and has been for years.

Quote
Do not deny the facts. Enough is enough Mr. Kothari is all right how long USA and other countries try to hide the tyrinny and cruilty of Israiel. It is the digital world now everything can easily be seen and judged.

Quote
Kothari is 100% correct. Israel has violated every law of humanity and if you call Jews out on their crimes, among the worst in human history, they scream antisemitic.  Israel is a war criminal and is now officially charged.

Quote
If anyone tells the truth regarding the crimes and atrocities that Israel commits every single day, they are accused of being anti-Semitic.

Quote
Playing the Anti-Semite Card NO longer works!
AIPAC has BRIBED most US politicians to condone genocide committed by the Israeli Regime!

Quote
The Russian and Ukrainian Jews who have no connection to the land whatsoever and are not Semite's are kiIIng and stealing land from the indigenous Palestinians people who are Semite's.

Quote
The Palestinian people are Semites, so in the strictest sense, the not infrequent
Israeli slaughter of Palestinian women and children is Israeli anti-Semitism. Also, both
Israelis and Jews very often make use of the concept of anti-Semitism NOT as a shield, but as a weapon to discourage legitimate criticism and engender self-censorship.

etc.

27 refugees were killed. 27 missiles should be fired at Spain by the US. See how fast they stop killing refugees if that were done.

"Inquiries", in contrast, will achieve nothing.

https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2022/09/10/un-refugee-agency-head-claims-strong-border-controls-are-racist/

Quote
UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi has claimed that governments enacting strong border controls to prevent illegal immigrants from entering their countries are doing so due to racism.

Grandi spoke at an event in Italy, stating that he was shocked at the difference in European countries’ attitudes toward those fleeing the conflict in Ukraine and migrants coming to Europe from different parts of the world.
...
According to Grandi, countries that want to be tougher on illegal immigration are motivated by racism, saying that “for the others, the response is restrictive legislation, barbed wire, naval blockades and pushbacks. This is racism. We have the legal and moral duty to welcome [migrants].

“The lesson of Ukraine is useful to understand how to respond to the movement of those who have nothing. In only a few weeks some seven million Ukrainians arrived in Europe, not just a few boats,” he said.

I agree. So what should be done to racists? What should be done to those who ignore legal and moral duty? This is what the entire conversation looks like at the moment:

False Left: "You are wrong."
Right: "I don't care."
False Left: (*confused about what to do next*)

To prevent more refugees dying, the conversation needs to look like:

False Left: "You are wrong."
Right: "I don't care."
True Left:
