Unfortunately, our Baha'i friend and his tribe also seem to have jumped on this resolution,
What's interesting is how weak the anti-Iran group is.
First of all, people should understand that there has always been huge pressure for countries to not vote pro Iran. Notice out of 183 countries, Less than 50% actually vote for, with the majority of the countries decided to not vote at all.
But look at some the countries that are really concerned about Human Rights in Iran,
Also, lots of tiny countries who obviously won't say no to big powers such as,
Kiribati with its population of 116,398, slightly bigger than Tehran's Azadi Stadium which can fill 90,000 fans.
Saint Lucia - 178,000, this one is big, it's almost TWO Azadi Stadiums!
Micronesia - 105,000
Seychelles - 95,000
Tuvalu - 11,000 (yes, really, apparently)
The resolution is, of course, basically just USA and NATO to be honest.
So, it's also interesting to see the countries that have refused to vote in Favor anyway. No In Favor from our western neighbors (Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, or Jordan!). Our eastern neighbors are also on our side, with Pakistan & India hard NO, and countries like Nepal, Sri Lanka absentees (can't figure out Afghanistan since it's cropped out in the image).
Our Southern neighbors only has KSA and UAE being the usual dicks (and probably Bahrain but it's cropped out). Kuwait & Qatar, sit this one out, and Oman is thumps up Iran bruh.
Finally, our northern CIS brothers have refused this resolution, such as Kyrgystan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Armenia is also cropped, but I bet those cool dudes are either completely on our side, or just went to the bathroom at the right time.
Isn't it cool that we live in a time where Iran has countries surrounding it that are refusing to fully bow down to USA, even though they have like 100 times more of an advantage than us, in terms of their bullying ability?
We just need to make KSA see the light, and then Iran and this region is untouchable.

Here is Iran's response to this resolution:
"Iran’s deputy U.N. ambassador, Eshagh Al Habib, dismissed the resolution as a “political charade,” saying promoting the human rights of Iranians “is not simply a legal and moral responsibility, but a paramount requirement of national security.”
“Similar to any other country, deficiencies may exist, and we are determined to address them,” he said. “However, it is not for those who traditionally, historically and practically supported colonialism, slavery, racism and apartheid to lecture Iranians on human rights.”"
And here is a Baha'i response !!! ??
We Baha'is do not participate in politics blah blah ... current resolution was the result of absolutely no political lobbying by Baha'is.
We Baha'i believe in the oneness of humanity and care for all humanity blah blah ... except for those 80 million Iranians whose life we will make miserable by intense lobbying and resolutions, all in the name of human rights of course.
Those bad bad bogeyman Iranians killed a few Baha'is after their revolution blah blah ... we will teach them a lesson by establishing great relationships with US/Israel and Co. who haven't killed a single innocent person in the last one hundred years because we absolutely detest violence and those that create it.
We as Baha'is have 300 thousand followers in Iran who are enduring economic hardships blah blah ... please impose economic hardships on 80 million Iranian civilians for how their government treats us.
