Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards

Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards

What does that title tell us? Only that a special purpose committee was instituted. “Complementary Standards” tells us nothing about its purpose. Complementary to what? What standards might the committee complete?

We have only a high sounding title, for a committee instituted by men with lofty titles and low morals: the United Nations Human Rights Council.
Ms. Navanethem Pillay, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has a hint for us.

An additional mechanism, the Ad Hoc Committee on Complementary Standards was created by the Human Rights Council in 2006 to fill gaps in CERD, and to provide new normative standards aimed at combating all forms of contemporary aspects of racism.

They are talking about adding a protocol to the International Convention for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. The protocol would be enforceable international law, binding on the signatories. You probably overlooked some key words.

  • contemporary aspects of racism.

What the Hell does that mean? It does not mean hating people because of their skin color, physiognomy or supposed inferior culture.

The following quote is from Preliminary document of the African Regional Conference Preparatory to the Durban Review Conference [Emphasis added.]

4. Emphasizes the urgent need to address the scourges of anti-Semitism, Christianophobia, and Islamophobia as contemporary forms of racism as well as racial and violent movements based on racism and discriminatory ideas directed at African, Arab, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other communities;

Islamophobia implies irrational fear and loathing. Considering Islam’s historical record of 270*106 innocent victims, there is nothing irrational about fearing or loathing Islam.

Islam is a war cult, not a race. It was contrived by an Arab, but it has enslaved people of several races, and due to their large population base and high rate of reproduction, Asian Muslims now outnumber Arab Muslims.

The next post in this series will examine the suggestions submitted to the committee by The Islamic Republic of Iran.
