SAUDI ARABIA ELECTED TO UN'S NEW WOMEN'S RIGHTS AGENCY
Atlas Shrugs ^ | November 12, 2010 | Pamela Geller

Posted on 11/12/2010 10:29:36 AM PST by La Lydia

This defies western logic, but not the agenda of the OIC-driven, sharia compliant UN. Saudi Arabia, where a 32-year-old woman is jailed for disobeying her father, where a pregnant gang-rape victim is sentenced to 100 lashes for committing adultery, where women are not allowed to drive, where women are lashed for being in the company of any male who is not a relative, where a 75-year-old could be flogged for breaching sex segregation rules, where a Saudi father weds his daughter, 10, to an 80-year-old pervert: "according to the shari'a his marriage is legal as long as the girl's father consents," where a child bride is turned back over to her 80-year-old husband........... must I go on?

And yet Obama continues to advance international law (the sharia) while reliquishing American sovereignty.

"Rights groups condemn election of Saudi Arabia to UN's new women's rights agency, laud defeat of Iran UNwatch.org

"New York, November 10, 2010 – Human rights groups condemned today's election of Saudi Arabia to the governing board of the UN's new women's rights agency.

"It's morally perverse to reward a country that lashes rape victims, and that systematically subjugates women in every walk of life, with the power to negatively influence the global protection of women's rights," said Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based UN Watch, who is currently visiting New York to monitor today's vote.

UN Watch organized a worldwide internet campaign to mobilize public opinion against the candidacies of Iran and Saudi Arabia: www.facebook.com/stopiran. The non-governmental human rights group lauded the democratic governments who pushed to defeat Iran, but Neuer expressed "deep regret that there has been complete silence on the offensive election of the fundamentalist and misogynist regime in Riyadh. The realpolitik of oil should never justify actions that legitimize the discrimination of women."

We really need to cut off the funding for this bunch of enemy parasites. Let the Saudis carry this burden for a change.

Defund the UN now! It is nothing more than corruption and absurdity in pursuit of a world without conflict, all nations and peoples living in peace and harmony.

Pam Geller’s usually full of it, but this time she nails it — this is outrageous.

Well Iran, Libya, Cuba, Syria, North Korea are on the Human Rights Commission.

So why not have Saudi Arabia, Iran and the like be on the Women's Rights Commission. We also need to have a Taliban Special Representative as a roving envoy in charge of stonings, honor killings and summary executions as half time entertainment at soccer games.

Actually, it is enormously entertaining. Too bad Andrea Dworkin isn’t still alive so that she could testify in from of the Saudis on the Committee. Rosie and the elderly hens on The View are still available, though.

Let the hearings begin!

Okay, that’s it, I’ll believe anything from the UN now. Tell me Iran is in charge of a UN panel to eliminate the death penalty, or North Korea is in charge of a panel about freedom of speech, and I’ll believe it.

BTW, Iran got a seat on this womens’ rights board back in May.

I thought this was going to be from “The Onion” or maybe a John Semmens article.

John, it’s time to find a new line of work. Reality has put satire out of business.

The fight is almost over. 385 countries against 6 or 10. I’m surprised we lasted this long.

They aren't countries. They are infestations. Spraying commences shortly, I believe.

Years ago I owned 50% in a AT-400 crop duster. Not expecting a profit, I was helping a friend get started in business. He did quite well.
