Philippinen. Duterte vs Icelanders: Ice-Eating, Fetus-Killers 

Lashing out on an island on the other end of the globe, Philippines’ President Rodrigo Duterte blasted on Tuesday the ‘ice-eating white folks’ of Iceland for lecturing him about human rights while allowing abortions of fetuses as old as six months.

Iceland angered Duterte when it initiated a UN Human Rights Council resolution that urged Manila to “take all necessary measures to prevent extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances” which have been taking place as part of its war against drugs. (occrp.org, 29.08.2019)
