The UN, also appropriately known as the dictators’ club, will now include Saudi Arabia as part of the Commission on the Status of Women, the intergovernmental body dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.
Obviously, Saudi Arabia’s role will be to do it in accordance with sharia law.
Saudi Arabia is the country that ranks 141 out of 144 countries for gender equality according to the World Economic Forum.
It’s not the only absurd choice. The countries selected include: Algeria, Comoros, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Turkmenistan, Ecuador, Haiti and Nicaragua.
Iraq? the Congo? Algeria? Really?
Women are not allowed to drive in the Kingdom and they generally need permission from a male guardian to travel, work, marry, receive healthcare and leave prison. It’s the only country that doesn’t allow women to drive.
Women have to wear a full burqa and cover themselves from head to toe, even foreigners. If the eye opening is too wide, they have to cover it with mesh.
The women can’t even wear colorful burqas. The police force follows women around everywhere and if they go into a restaurant, they have to eat in a family section or eat fully covered.
Couples getting married are not allowed to see each other before the marriage.
Those potentates and wealthy Arabians buy women in slave markets. Women are chattel.
Putting Saudi Arabia on the Commission is like putting Kim Jong Un in charge of our ICBM program.
The United States forced a formal vote even though China was opposed but it was still held behind closed doors. While it’s not clear which nations approved it, it is believed that at least five EU nations did vote in favor.
At least 5 EU states voted FOR the Saudis.

Which countries do you think voted for these enslavers of women? Our guess: Belgium, Germany, Swede, UK and France. What do you think?
They’re far gone enough to support sharia law on a UN council for women’s rights.
A great example of the Kingdom’s treatment of women can be seen in the case of 24-year old Dina Ali who was trying to escape a forced marriage but was stopped in the Philippines on her way to Australia and freedom. She was returned to Saudi Arabia and is now in prison. She feared she would be killed by her family.
Saudi Arabia has stepped into the modern age and the government now tracks the women. If they cross borders, a text is sent to their male guardian, warning them.
Women are slaves in Arabia. The Wahhabi interpretation of law requires male guardians to give consent for a woman to leave the country by signing a “yellow sheet” at the airport or border.
Three men were recently banished from the kingdom because they are too handsome and might cause women to sin. That’s sharia for you.
The UN is a joke – a bad joke. The EU is becoming a joke as well.
