UN elects Iran to commission on women’s rights…huh?
The outrage from the Obama whitehouse was…wait, what outrage? Coming from a President who attacks Israel at every turn for building homes in their nation’s capital, I guess this is all too expected.
Consider the case of Soraya M., adapted from a book by French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam into a movie that is both terrifying and shocking. The story is a true one, about a woman whose husband wants to divest himself of a marriage so he can paedophilically marry a 14 year old girl. He finds a way when his wife cooks dinner for a neighbor who has lost his wife–charging her with adultery.
In the West we assume most stories end well, justice prevails over evil, but this was not the case for Soraya M, as Sharia law convicted her, buried her to her waist, and she was stoned to death.
Unlike Mr Obama, we cannot foolishly project our values upon other cultures. Iran is not a good place for human rights.
A recent story from FOX details one Iranian Police chief who is threatening to arrest women with suntans.
“In some areas of north Tehran we can see many suntanned women and young girls who look like walking mannequins,” he continued. “We are not going to tolerate this situation and will first warn those found in this manner and then arrest and imprison them.”
You’ve come a long way baby!
I have argued before with people who like to compare us to the world, saying that many members of the U.N. hate the USA. Let them hate us, we have the high ground. Much of the U.N. reminds me of a Star Wars bar scene of various dictators who allow paedophilia, white slavery, the caste system, female genital mutilation, anti-semitism, violation of women’s rights (women as cattle), and outright slavery and genocide.
Yet we are the “bad people”? Personally I could care less about the world’s perception, what worries me is that the President seems to agree with them.
This action by the United Nations should remove all credibility they may have had. It is tantamount to electing Nazi Germany to a commission on Jewish relations.
