We are on the doorsteps of the anniversary marking the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a document that recognizes freedom for all human beings regardless of any customs, sect, religion, and race and under any type of government. However, in this century – described to be the century of unprecedented developments in sciences and humane advances – will this document be actually recognized and will its articles be truly respected??!!
If so, what page of this document gives criminals the right to murder people execution-style, with bullets shot to the head at point blank range and hands tied behind their backs?
If so, which article defines the massacre of small Syrian children with chemical weapons and forcing millions of Syrians flee their homes?!!
The mullahs’ regime ruling Iran has come under 60 condemnations by various United Nations organs for violating the rights stated in this declaration. Then where is the world of action and commitment to principles?
Where are those who boast of democracy, justice and humanity?
How many thousands of innocent human beings must be sent to the gallows to open the eyes of these so-called men of justice?
How many thousands of innocent homeless children must sleep in the streets with open eyes in freezing winter cold, until the world opens its eyes to its obligations?
When will someone finally say enough is enough?
We are nearing the anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adoption…
The time has come for the world to decide what action it seeks to take!!!
