It is saddening that the HRWF Report states that hundreds of prisoners are in the 24 countries discussed, including the eight states who have been accepted as members of the U.N. Human Rights Council despite their dismal record on human rights and their refusal to allow or their rigid control over religious freedom.

Apostasy is a capital offense punishable by death in eight of them: Afghanistan, Iran, Malaysia, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen.

The hypocrisy of various NGOs, left wing thinker, activitists is increidible. The amount of sound bites, papers, reports drafted on humiliating countries such Israel, for their perceived lack of human rights, could be probably be stacked higher than Mt Everest. The calls for remedying human right injustices fall deaf ears, when it comes to scrutinizing Islamic countries. Why is this so? Why is the human rights of those in such countries is significantly less worthy? Short answer lies in the practice of Islamic law, Sharia.
Yet all of those in power across the EU, gladly tolerate this double standard, as it is safer and trendier to slander the likes of Israel than Iran. The biggest hypocrite has to be the UN Secretary General, for allowing 8 states to sit on the Human Rights Council. The world's mainstream media are also the jokers in the pack.
