My Italics

From the New York Times:

The Human Rights Council has been widely criticized for being no more effective than the discredited Human Rights Commission it replaced this year, and whether it takes action on Darfur or not is being seen as a measure of whether it can start to build credibility during its formal session, the fourth it has held, that began Monday.

All eight previous condemnations of human rights performance that it has issued since its creation in June have been against one country, Israel.

In the four years since the Sudanese government began fighting separatist rebels in Darfur province, violence in the region has left more 200,000 villagers dead and 2.5 million people homeless.
