The list of winners of the Quadafi prize, that Ziegler co-founded as a way of giving good press to the murdering, raping, torturer who ruthlessly ruled Libya for decades, is like a who's-who of global sociopaths. It includes Communist dictators like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, as well as the degenerate racist, Louis Farrakhan. And of Course Ziegler himself won the award, but lied about it for 11 years until the organization United Nations Watch exposed him.
Even so, today he was elected to the ironically-named United Nations Human Rights Advisory Council.
The UN is a dysfunctional club that needs a massive overhaul. Until then, it carries less moral authority than a pile of cow dung.
