Those wacky Pakistanis


Syrian forces using live ammunition killed at least 75 unarmed protesters today. There’s a video circulating of a 9-year old boy with a horrific head wound.

A number of members of the U.N. Human Rights Council think this and other abuses would make for useful fodder for a council that deals with rights for humans.

Not so the Organization of the Islamic Conference.

The Pakistani ambassador to the UNHRC told AP the OIC would use its influence to make sure the UNHRC stays true to form and attacks … Israel:

"We think that the events that are taking place do not merit some kind of a special session," said Zamir Akram, Pakistan’s ambassador to the U.N. in Geneva.

He accused those advocating a special session of double standards, and said the OIC would use any such meeting to focus on human rights abuses by Israel instead.
