Just when you thought the UN could not get worse

Everyone knows about the absurdity of the UN Human Rights Council, which since its formation has passed 8 resolutions condemning Israel and none against any other nation. But it’s not the only UN body that behaves, er, strangely. Take the UN Commission on Disarmament (please):

On April 9, 2007 there was a United Nations believe-it-or-not moment extraordinaire. At the same time that Iran’s President Ahmadinejad declared his country was now capable of industrial-scale uranium enrichment, the U.N. reelected Iran as a vice chairman of the U.N. Disarmament Commission…

So in Iran at the Natanz nuclear facility Ahmadinejad gloated: “With great pride, I announce as of today our dear country is among the countries of the world that produces nuclear fuel on an industrial scale.” And in New York, courtesy of his U.N. platform, Iranian Disarmament Vice-Chairman Seyed Mohammad Ali Robatjazi railed against “noncompliance with the NPT [nuclear nonproliferation treaty] by the United States” and “the Zionist lobby”…

Following the election on Monday of Iran as vice chairman, the U.N. Disarmament Commission elected Syria as its rapporteur. — Anne Bayefsky in NRO

Yes, of course, the real problem is the Zionist lobby.
