At the risk of sounding repetitious, Finland’s political elite worship the UN as much as it does the EU…
The Finnish media can be counted on to regularly ignore stories that cast these two international institutions in a bad light. They still practice a form of self-censorship inherited during the Cold War (and even earlier). They slobber over the WHO, the ICC, the UNHRC, and every other agency under the UN banner. UN peacekeeping troops are also lionized, no UN corruption incidents are worth a mention in the Finnish media as well, there may be a few dissident media, but the bigger organizations can be trusted to keep a tight-lipped ship.
The United Nations Human Rights Council Praises Iran

- One of the worst examples we can identify as a conscious distortion of reality is the way in which the UN Human Rights Council, in its February-March 2020 five-year report on the Islamic Republic of Iran, lavished praise on the despotic regime.
- Other extreme forms of punishment used in Iran are equally appalling: Execution by stoning, Execution by hanging, Execution by firing squad, Execution by beheading, Execution by throwing from a height, Amputation, Blinding, Flogging. – United Against Nuclear Iran
- Yet many people who boycott Israel refuse to boycott Iran. The irony is mind-boggling.
There are times when even the most steeled among us are shocked by things others say or do. For example, people who insist against overwhelming evidence that Hitler and the Nazis were good people or that the Führer never intended to kill the Jews. Individuals who, again against a massive body of evidence, deny where the coronavirus began; or, though their numbers are relatively small, the percentages of Muslims who apparently still support the Islamic State (ISIS).
