UN Watch

The following statistics are from UN Watch, an organization whose mandate is "to monitor the performance of the United Nations by the yardstick of its own Charter":
  • 19: Number of resolutions condemning Israel passed by the UN General Assembly in its 59th session (2004-2005).
  • 0: Number of resolutions on the genocide in Darfur passed by the General Assembly in the same period.
(Hat tip: Eye on the UN, a web site dedicated to "making transparent the UN's record on its fundamental promise - to identify, condemn, and protect against human rights violations." It is a project of the Hudson Institute and the Touro Law Center Institute for Human Rights.)
