“Zeid Raad al-Hussein, the first human rights chief from the Muslim and Arab worlds” praises the Islamic State’s “ethnic diversity.” Apparently he is a supporter of the concept of the global caliphate, the supranational unity of the Muslims. And so the first step has been taken to normalize the Islamic State and bring it in from the cold, as the UN becomes ever more of a tool of the international Islamic supremacist agenda.
“France Calls for Islamic State to Be Referred to ICC,” Associated Press, March 27, 2015:
UNITED NATIONS — The U.N. human rights chief told the Security Council on Friday that in a “most terrible irony,” the Islamic State group may be more accepting of the ethnic diversity of its members than some states are about ethnic differences among their own citizens.
Zeid Raad al-Hussein, the first human rights chief from the Muslim and Arab worlds, spoke as French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius chaired a special meeting on the abuses in the Middle East on ethnic and religious grounds. Both said the Security Council should refer the situations in Iraq and Syria to the International Criminal Court.
Fabius later told reporters that the Islamic State group itself, “these criminals,” should be referred to the ICC.
Zeid called the Islamic State group “an abomination” but also criticized states in the Middle East and elsewhere for overlooking abuses, attacking civil society and letting fanaticism flourish. “If we attend to minority rights only after the slaughter has begun, then we have already failed,” he said.
The rights chief, who is from Jordan, did not name any governments in his criticism. He said the Islamic State may be more accepting of ethnic diversity of its members so long as they adhere to the group’s world view, even while the “intricately interwoven social fabric in Syria and Iraq is giving way to the demented obliteration of any difference” from IS ideology.
The Islamic State group has seized large parts of Syria and Iraq over the past year, drawing an international military response that includes U.S. airstrikes against the extremists in both countries. The group has imposed a harsh version of Islamic law and beheaded and massacred their opponents.
“Ordinary citizens are wondering how so many countries gathered here together, who call themselves the ‘United Nations,’ have so far been unable to tackle terrorism and eradicate it,” Fabius said….
Maybe because they refuse to address honestly its motivations and root causes.
