UN Watch Slams UN ‘Apathy, Banality’ on Syria
The UN Watch watchdog group has slammed the United Nations for its “apathy” in the face of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.
UN watch executive-director Hillel Neuer slammed the Human Rights Council in a meeting this week.
“Three weeks have passed since Syria gassed to death hundreds of its own men, women, and children — and still the council closes its eyes, refusing our call for an emergency session,” he accused.
“Madam President, why is this monstrous crime being treated here with such apathy, banality and triteness? Where is this council’s moral outrage?”
