Sadly, #ViolenceAgainstWomen remains one the most widespread #HumanRights violations in the world. It also undermines the ability to participate as a full citizen in the economic, political and social life. #16days #UNhumanrightsDay2014

H.E. Al-Nasser writes in his book “A Year at the Helm of the United Nations General Assembly” about #UNGA presidency, and about his vision for universal values, including #UN belief in #interfaith goodness of every individual and commitment to #peace#forgiveness, and #compassion. "Consider for a moment: In #Christianity, it is said, ‘Do to others what you would like others to do to you.’ In #Islam, we hear, ‘Wish for others what you wish for yourself.’ In #Judaism, we learn, ‘What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor.’"
