Duplicitous Human Rights Council Report on Syria
UN Human Rights Council in the tank for Western interests.

On June 27, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) discussed conflict conditions in Syria. Truth took a back seat. Some present denounced its absence.
Pre-scripted, its conclusions were predictable. Washington calls the shots. Most HRC members salute and obey.
Syrian HRC representative Faisal Khabbaz al-Hamwi denounced the proceedings. Calling them useless and politically biased, he said its report reflects a "disinformation war against Syria." He walked out of the session, saying:
"We will not participate in this flagrantly political meeting."
He had good reason to leave. Before doing so he said national reconciliation can only happen when "foreign powers stopped inciting violence. The crisis in Syria (is) genuine war and a criminal operation involving destruction of property."
It's not about "legitimate demands for reform." It's about lawlessly supporting regime change. It's to replace Assad with a pro-Western puppet.
Washington had that in mind for years. Independent governments aren't tolerated. America has longstanding plans to oust them for subservient vassal ones.
Syria's insurgency is supported and financed from abroad. It promotes anarchy and disorder. It ignores how Israel persecutes Arabs and Turkey wages war on Kurds.
It avoids discussing Gulf states' crimes against their own people and involvement in Washington's war on Syria.
"A war of minds and bombs is taking place. Gunmen have been carrying out terrorist acts on Syrian cities. Such activities by gunmen and terrorists is being fed with money and weapons from abroad," he explained.
"How could some sides pretend to be worried about the Syrian people and at the same time arming the terrorists and conspiring against the Syrians."
"Had these sides been honest, they would have supported Annan's plan and urged all sides to hold a constructive national dialogue," he added.
