First, Fox News noted yesterday that Hamas had already picked a new leader. In a typical display of leadership and courage, Hamas refused to divulge his identity.

Second, the UN Human Rights Commission passed a resolution complaining about the association of Islam with human rights violations. (hattip: little green footballs). Here are those in favor:

Argentina (hid Nazis), Bahrain (Arab, only allows Islam worship), Bhutan, Brazil (wants its own nuke, hid Goebbels), Burkina Faso (diamond killings), China (perpetual human rights abuser), Congo (three words: Mobutu Sese Seko), Costa Rica, Cuba (45 years of Communism), Egypt (home of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists), Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Honduras, Indonesia (home of largest single-country Muslim population), Mauritania, Nigeria (1/2 dominated by shari'a practitioners in north of country), Pakistan (recognized Taliban -- one of two countries to do so), Paraguay, Qatar, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia (women cannnot drive, leave house w/o male companion, own land, etc.), Sierra Leone (diamond wars), South Africa (puhlease), Sri Lanka, Sudan (where Arabs enslave blacks), Togo, Uganda and Zimbabwe (two words, Robert Mugabe).

Against: Australia, Austria, Croatia, Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Guatemala, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden, Ukraine, United Kingdom and United States = the western countries with democratic and human rights traditions and a passel of former Soviet subjects or Communist victims (Hungary, Croatia, Ukraine).
