U.N. Commission on Human Rights doesn't want to hear about China's abuses Story dated 27 April 2005
"Tens of millions of Chinese Christians practice their religion in secret. Members of churches that have refused to accept state control, they have gone underground and live in constant risk of detection. Tens of thousands of them have been arrested or worse -- tortured, sent to labor camps, even killed for their beliefs."
When a delegation went before the alleged U.N. Commission on Human Rights to offer testimony on religious persecution and torture of prisoners in China, they were basically ignored. "One of the Chinese police's favorite torture devices . . . is a kind of electric baton. Bob Fu [the leader of this delegation] owns such a baton, smuggled out of a Chinese prison. He took it to Geneva after obtaining permission from the secretary of the UNCHR to conduct a demonstration of it during his testimony. This demonstration consisted of Fu's holding it in the air over his head and turning it on for six seconds.
Predictably, the Chinese delegation went berserk, its members claiming that the demonstration made them feel threatened . . . They then demanded that Fu be booted from the proceedings. The commission's chairman, obliging chap that he is, agreed. Fu was escorted from the building and stripped of his U.N. badge. His baton was also seized, and has not been returned."
Is it any wonder why I think that the U.N has no credibility? The U.N. will not criticize China. Ever. The only countries that it is appropriate to criticize in the U.N. are Israel, the Untied States, and Japan. China actually tortures people and imprisons them for their beliefs. No one does anything. Why do we continue to recognize the legitimacy of the People's Republic of China? A tyranny is not a legitimate government.
It this prevailing attitude continues, Taiwan has no hope of long-term freedom. _____________________________________________
