    Libya Tells UN Rights Council: “Gays threaten continuation of human race”

    Libya’s post-suspension return marked by Islamist policy on gays

    Published by UN Watch - at February 13, 2012 in Libya.



    http://blog.unwatch.org/index.php/2...cil-gays-threaten-continuation-of-human-race/

    GENEVA, Feb. 13 – Gays threaten the continuation of the human race, Libya’s delegate told a planning meeting of the UN Human Rights Council today, reported the Geneva-based UN Watch monitoring group. It was the first appearance in the 47-nation body by the post-Gaddafi government, whose membership was restored in November following Libya’s suspension in March.

    Protesting the council’s first panel discussion on discrimination and violence based on sexual orientation, scheduled for March 7th, Libya’s representative told the gathering of ambassadors today that LGBT topics “affect religion and the continuation and reproduction of the human race.” He added that, were it not for their suspension, Libya would have opposed the council’s June 2011 resolution on the topic.

    In response, council president Laura Dupuy Lasserre said that “the Human Rights Council is here to defend human rights and prevent discrimination.”

    The Libyan outburst prompted questions by human rights activists about Libya’s reinstatement on the council.

    “We were happy to see the Gaddafi regime finally suspended last year,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, which in 2010 led a campaign of 70 human rights groups to expel the Libyan dictator.

    “Yet today’s shocking homophobic outburst by the new Libyan government, together with the routine abuse of prisoners, underscores the serious questions we have about whether the new regime is genuinely committed to improving on the dark record of its predecessor, or to pandering to some of the hardline Islamists amidst its ranks,” said Neuer.

    In November, when the UN General Assembly reinstated Libya on the council, deputy UN envoy Ibrahim Dabbashi said “the new Libya deserves to return to the Human Rights Council to contribute with other members to the promotion of values of human rights.”

    “No violations of human rights will take place on Libyan territory in the future and if it happens the perpetrator will never get away with it,” he vowed.

    Despite the pledges, however, Neuer said “the restoration of the new Libyan regime to the council, supported by 123 states including all of the Western democracies, was carried out precipitously and without any record of its commitment to human rights domestically and abroad. The new rulers’ pledges are being broken.”

    “Gays are now paying the price, with their right to be free from violent attacks now being undermined at the UN by a country that democratic countries fought to liberate, and by a goverment that our leaders helped install. It’s all very disconcerting.”

    Obama is going to personally fly a drone, which runs on ground up Constitution, into every homosexual in Libya and give them abortions.

    You can gauge the rising desperation of guys like highcrop, basso, bigtex, and others of their ilk by the rate at which they post.

    When things look bleakest for them, their posting rate and hysteria increases to a comical level.

    Say what you want but Libya is going to turn out to be a disaster for the people living there. The oil companies, financiers, and contractors on the other hand are going to do quite well for themselves.

    Amazing, that this is the war for oil everyone is always crying about the US fighting, and there is nary a peep in protest.

    Liberals like war when its a democrat doing the killing, and Republicans apparently just like killing people.

    people support a war when it started organically from within, and not when the US started it. It also gets more support when no troops invade the nation, and it isn't really a war at all, but a military action where the US got the ball rolling but was able to get their allies to do much of the heavy lifting.

    All things that are different, and play a much bigger part than the party affiliation of the president.

    Agreed, how do you look a drone in the optical sensor and tell him that he's got to go out and risk his fuselage for oil? Or even worse, tell him he's got to be the last SKU to malfunction for a mistake?

    Sick ****...thanks obama. :rolleyes:

    Well, yeah, but...

    This is sort of like saying the world is a better place without Sadam Hussein. However the world is a worse place with hundreds of thousands of extra innocent Iraqis dead who would still be alive if we hadn't had a war to kill Sadam Hussein, who killed less of his own people than we did.

    That being said it is totally stupid to try to put total emphasis on the plight of gays in Libya after the civil war without discussing what was the plight before.
