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."
The headline is a joke..right?
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.
LMAO! The UN is a joke!
Oh, let me guess....and the UK is elected to the UN’s Culinary Excellence Agency?
But the UN is.
UN out of the US; US out of the UN.
Pam Geller’s usually full of it, but this time she nails it — this is outrageous.
Nope. Seriously. And apparently we voted for them.
LMAO! The UN is a joke!
joining you in laughing at the UN
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!
As Tonto famously said, "What's this 'we' white man?"
FReepmail me if you want on or off The Comedian's "Insanity Wave" ping list...
A woman can’t even drive a car in SA.
Everybody must get stoned.
But the Un defeated Charlie Chaplin and his nazi hordes in the 1930s. They unnazied the world. < /idiocracy >
But at least she was stoned to death wearing those fashion-forward studded gladiator sandals! Nine West?
I think that’s John Cleese under there.
