"THE BLOC OF REPRESSIVE STATES": No, this isn't a lame State Department attempt to soften the President's "Axis of Evil" label. It's how Andrew Stuttaford describes a voting bloc of states on the U.N. Commission against Human Rights that prevents the commission from singling out particular countries for criticism. Of course, as we know, the Bloc of Repressive States isn't merely a negative force; sometimes it acts to single out particular states, as it did two weeks ago when the commission passed a resolution endorsing Palestinian terrorist attacks on Israel. Joining in that resolution was, of course, the synagogue-burning nation of France which, thanks to Andrew Stuttaford, now has a new title: European Delegate to the Bloc of Repressive States.
