Thank you, @KenRoth, for sharing your July 2018 op-ed about this in The Hill, which then invited me to respond with my own op-ed: thehill.com/opinion/intern…

You lost the debate. Let us recall how it all went down. 🧵 : Ambassador @NikkiHaley led efforts in 2018 to reform the U.N. Human Rights Council, a 47-nation body that suffers a credibility deficit, with its work often marked by selectivity and politicization. /1

BREAKING: 9 minutes ago, for the first time since the Sept. 16 death of Mahsa Amini, @UN_Iran posted a tweet. About an earthquake. They went silent for 134 days during mass protests for freedom, never saying a word for hundreds of protesters killed and injured or 18,000 detained. History will record that when tens of thousands of Iranian women, men and children went to the streets to risk their lives for the principles of universal human rights — for Woman, Life, Freedom — the response of the United Nations in Iran was to go completely radio silent. /2

In July 2022, a gunman hired by the Ayatollah's regime in Iran came to Brooklyn to try and murder my friend Masih Alinejad because she created the successful mass movement to fight their compulsory hijab law. Now the US has announced another arrest. /1
justice.gov/usao-sdny/pr/u… This is Khalid Mehdiyev. Last July, he came with a loaded AK-47 rifle in his car to the Brooklyn home of Iranian-born journalist and human rights activist Masih Alinejad. He approached her, but she fled. When he blew a stop sign, New York police stopped him and found the gun. /2

BREAKING: Ahead of Monday's mandatory United Nations review, we found 10 false claims in #Pakistan's report on its human rights record. We urge the @UN_HRC to hold Pakistan's representatives to account for trying to cover up gross human rights abuses. /1
unwatch.org/pakistan-claim… On Monday, the UN must urge #Pakistan to put an end to torture, enforced disappearances, child labor, violence against women, crushing independent journalists, censoring social media, persecuting Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Shia and Ahmadis, and supporting terrorist groups. /2

.@KenRoth I challenge you to a debate. You have argued that people such as the founder of Human Rights Watch support war crimes, racism and inhumanity. I think he is a hero, and I am willing to debate you on this any time, anywhere. Since we both live in Geneva, how about here, Monday?

“Hello, one of this week's trending tweets was about My Martyrdom — because even though I dine at the White House, mingle in Davos with EU grandees, and received $100 million from a billionaire to hire away top UN officials and major media correspondents, I am being silenced...” 2/ I applaud Harvard University for refusing to grant a fellowship to Ken Roth who lobbied against sanctions on the murderous Islamic Republic of Iran, boasted about his “dealings” with their mouthpiece Javad Zarif, and portrayed him as a humanitarian.

Two years ago, millions in Iran and across the Middle East were greatly relieved by the news that justice was delivered to mass murderer Qasem Soleimani, a mastermind of international terrorism. His crimes brought tragedy and loss of life to thousands of men, women and children. UN rep @AgnesCallamard mourned Soleimani, ignoring 500,000 men, women and children in Syria, Iraq & Yemen raped, mutilated & slaughtered by his terror militia, and those starved in Aleppo, Qusayr, Madaya & Zabadani by his acolytes. Now she heads @amnesty.

To reform the UN, in 2022 we spearheaded successful campaigns to remove the regimes of Vladimir Putin, Nicolás Maduro & Ayatollah Khamenei from top UN human rights bodies.

In 2023, we will work to expel the regimes ruling China, Cuba & Pakistan from the UN Human Rights Council. 2/ Our successful campaign to expel the Islamic regime in Iran from the UN Women’s Rights Commission:

If Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem today, they’d be lynched by your PLO and Hamas friends for being Jewish. The world remembers how your lot actively supported the PLO terrorists as they murdered Jews in schools, supermarkets, synagogues, airports and Olympic games. /2

.@khamenei_ir Today we are going to expel you from the U.N. Women’s Rights Commission. That you were ever elected to it in the first place was an abomination. Then the free world needs to find the backbone to help Iranians put an end to your child-killing, woman-torturing regime. Watch the meeting live today, December 14, starting at 10 am New York time — here: media.un.org/en/asset/k18/k…

BREAKING: UN Special Rapporteur @FranceskAlbs fundraised for UNRWA in 2014 by writing that America is “subjugated by the Jewish lobby” and Europe “by the sense of guilt about the Holocaust.” We are calling on @antonioguterres @volker_turk @FVillegasARG to fire this antisemite. Francesca Albanese also cheered the removal of Hamas from a terror list, endorses their "right to resist," and writes “The Israeli lobby is clearly inside your veins and system” and speaks of “Israel’s greed.”

Politico reports that many states are “wary” of voting on Wednesday to expel Iran's Islamic regime from the U.N. Women's Rights Commission. “Some U.N. delegations, including European ones, wish there had been more consultation.” Here's how you can help: /1

Good News: By a huge majority of 142 to 8, the House of Representatives of the Netherlands Parliament has adopted @AgnesMulderCDA's motion calling on the 🇳🇱 government “to make efforts within the United Nations to remove Iran from the Commission on the Status of Women.” 🧵 Initially, Foreign Minister @WBHoekstra had opposed trying to expel the Islamic regime from the UN's top women's rights body, arguing it would be counter-productive, futile and inconsistent. We pushed back, as did Dutch MPs in a Nov. 24 debate. /2

The Islamic Republic of Iran will claim in tomorrow's UNHRC special session that they cooperate with the United Nations and its human rights mechanisms. Is this true? Let us consider.

The UNHRC's investigator on executions has requested 7 times to visit. The regime refused. /1 The UNHRC's Working Group on discrimination against women and girls has 3 times requested to visit Iran. The regime refused. /2

BREAKING: Palestinians perpetrate multiple terrorist attacks in Israel’s capital Jerusalem during morning rush hour, wounding 15, four critically. I am in Geneva at the United Nations Human Rights Council and they will say and do nothing.

ynet.co.il/news/article/s… The first explosion occurred at 7:05 on Sha'are Jerusalem Street at the exit of the city. A bomb was placed near a bus stop. Half an hour later, another explosion at a bus stop at Ramot junction. The injured were taken to hospitals. Police are searching other bus stops. /2

In less than 48 hours, here in Geneva the United Nations Human Rights Council will for the first time hold a special session on Iran and establish a Fact-Finding Mission to probe regime abuses. Will it stop the massacres? No. But it's one more straw to break the camel's back. I predict the resolution will pass by a majority of 18 votes to 12, with 17 abstaining. German Foreign Minister @ABaerbock took the lead to convene the session and she will be here to address the meeting, as will I. Here's the text of the draft resolution: unwatch.org/draft-resoluti…

BREAKING: A month after we submitted a draft resolution ⤵️ to expel the Islamic Republic of Iran from the UN Women's Rights Commission, the U.S. has requested a special meeting to make it happen. There's no precedent or procedure for this—it's truly extraordinary. Never give up! It was our organization UN Watch which first exposed the obscene election of the Islamic Republic of Iran to
@UN_CSW last year. The rest of the world—member states as well as the giant, pro-NIAC NGOs like @hrw—they were silent. We were not silent. /2

We are demanding the creation of an international Commission of Inquiry, and a formal call to expel the Islamic Republic from the UN’s top women’s rights body.
