Saudi Arabia and Iran Do Something That Has the Whole World Laughing…And Also Really Angry

By

There’s a verse in the Bible that talks about a day when the world is filled with topsy-turvy logic: good is called evil, and evil is called good.

I think we just might be in that day.

Two of the nations with the absolute worst records in terms of women’s rights have just been named to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

In Saudi Arabia, women were only last year finally allowed to drive cars, and are still viewed as the property of their husbands.

In Iran, women are jailed for removing their hijabs, and horrifically stoned to death on even the mere suspicion of “inappropriate” encounters with the opposite sex.

And yet, the UN in all its magnificent wisdom believes these two nations have something positive to add to the discussion on how to better the lives of women the world over.

From World Net Daily:

“Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. “It’s absurd — and morally reprehensible.”

In a statement, the U.N. defended the election of Saudi Arabia, explaining it works with all members of the global body to advance gender equality and female empowerment.

When Iran was elected to a four-year term on the women’s commission in 2014, Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust, declared: “This election farce has real consequences.”

Isn’t it about time that America withdraw from this farce of an international body?

Maybe it’s still a viable place for all the nations of the world to get together to discuss things, but to view the UN as an organization working for the betterment of mankind in general is now nothing more than a bad joke.
