Protector of Human Rights

Editor, The Jewish News:
On Human Rights Day,
Dec. 10, the UN Association
of the U.S. urged that our
foreign policy be perma-
nently concerned with uni-
versal human rights and
called for Senate approval of
six measures designed to
enforce them — including
the Genocide Convention
ratified by 80 nations but
stalled in the Senate for 30
years.
Thiry-one years after the
adoption of the UN's Dec-
laration of Human Rights,
the majority of mankind
lives under regimes devoid
of respect for fundamental
human freedoms. The UN is
dominated by a coalition of
totalitarian regimes that
have suppressed human
rights and the rule of law
domestically while at the
same time pretending to
champion those very causes
in the international area.
What greater mockery
than Idi Amin's Uganda
being represented on the
UN Commission on Human
Rights?

The brutalization of
millions worldwide
breeds cynicism, despair,
increasing violence. The
stark truth is that the U.S.
has maintained military
relationships with gov-
ernments that grossly.
violated human rights.
We loaded Iran with bil-
lions in arms while the
Shah brutally repressed
dissidents. Merciless vio-
lations of human rights
persist in Saudi Arabia—
yet we supply tremen-
dous materiel and per-
sonnel to strengthen an
inhuman police state.

Israel, alone in the
Mideast, adheres to the
age-old principle that "he
who preserves the life of a
single person is deemed as if
he saved the entire uni-
verse." Even terrorists
guilty of massacres are not
executed! But Israel gets
cynically condemned even
by democracies. Such is the
power of petropolitics!
