Ethiopia is elected to be member of the United Nations Human Rights Council. Despite of the Ethiopian extremist’s campaign to paint Ethiopia as undemocratic repressive country Ethiopia is elected. Those selfish enemies of our people had anything possible under the sun to undermine the government of Ethiopia for years, but they keep losing.
Ethiopia’s election to the United Nations Human Rights Council is a big blow to the one man regime and his stupid puppies like Birhanu Nega. Slowly but surely things are falling to their place. The other leg of Shabiya, Al-Shabab is absolutely obliterated by the gallant Ethiopian and the African forces in Somalia.
This is a great vindication to our late Prime Minister Meles Zenawi and to the leadership of EPRDF in general.
The prophets of doom and gloom can go hide for the next four years or face reality and admit EPRDF taking the Ethiopia to where no Ethiopian has been gone before which is prosperity and greatness.
Argentina, Brazil, Ivory Coast, Estonia, Ethiopia, Gabon, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Montenegro, Pakistan, South Korea, Sierra Leone, United Arab Emirates, United States and Venezuela were also elected Monday to three-year terms beginning Jan. 1, 2013.
The Human Rights Council was created in March 2006 to replace the U.N.'s widely discredited and highly politicized Human Rights Commission. But the council has also been widely criticized for failing to change many of the commission's practices, including putting much more emphasis on Israel than on any other country and electing candidates accused of serious human rights violations.
