    At UN, Pakistan Praises Saudi Arabia for Protecting Womens Rights

    October 22, 2013 By Daniel Greenfield

    It’s not a joke. It’s the United Nations.



    And it’s that punchline to the joke that the UN protects human rights that is the UN Human Rights Council, which is always ready to condemn human rights abusers like Canada, Australia and America… but has a kind word for defenders of human rights like China, Libya and Saudi Arabia.

    Today’s United Nations punchline has been brought to you by billions of your tax dollars. It’s your money. You deserve a good laugh.

    As the UN Human Rights Council scrutinized Saudi Arabia’s domestic rights record this morning… out of 95 countries who took the floor, 82 praised Saudi Arabia.

    Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based human rights group UN Watch, said the country is poised to win a seat on the Human Rights Council.

    “A country whose legal system routinely lashes women rape victims rather than punish the perpetrators should not have been praised effusively by members of the UN’s top human rights body,” said Neuer. “Instead the world should have addressed the Saudi regime’s use of cruel, inhuman and degrading punishments, such as flogging, amputations and eye-gouging.”

    But look at who lined up to praise Saudi human rights.

    Afghanistan: “We commend Saudia Arabia as they continue to enhance the protection and promotion of human rights…”

    Palestine: “We take notice of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to protect and promote human rights…”



    Somalia: “Saudi Arabia maintains a high priority for protection and promotion of human rights…”

    Libya: “Saudi Arabia continues to strengthen human rights and promote them and this deserves our appreciation…”

    Mauritania, VP of the UNHRC (and a country that practices slavery): “We commend Saudi Arabia for always seeking to strengthen human rights…We commend Saudi Arabia in terms of the progress on guaranteeing fundamental rights and freedoms, socioeconomic progress, participation of women at all levels and participation in society.

    China: “We appreciate efforts made to protect the rights of children and to have dialogues of religious tolerance…”

    Pakistan: Commended “laudable steps taken by Saudi Arabia to promote and protect the rights of children and women…”

    It’s official.

    According to China, Saudi Arabia which arrests Christians for praying, practices religious tolerance.

    According to Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, the terrorists running the Palestinian Authority, and a Muslim country that practices slavery, the Saudis excel at human rights.

    And according to Pakistan, a country where raping women is practically in the Constitution, Saudi Arabia, which won’t let women drive or leave the house, is also breaking new ground in protecting women’s rights.

    Every comedian knows when to go out on a high note. The joke that is the UN has reached its high note. There is nothing else. It’s time to disband the whole thing, admit it was a long gag, and move on to the Glasgow Comedy Festival, and maybe use the UN building to house the homeless.

    There’s nothing else left to do.



    Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

    He's part of the Islamophobe industry. Don't underestimate it's pernicious influence. It includes clever and dangerous people such as the following:

    Saudi protecting human rights? That's a new one

    And according to Pakistan, a country where raping women is practically in the Constitution, Saudi Arabia, which won’t let women drive or leave the house, is also breaking new ground in protecting women’s rights.
    Way overboard here.

    Such an interesting world view of a Moderator --- Makes one wonder what exactly are the Values the management of the forum actually stands for, after all, a Moderator is the voice of the management/admin of the forum ---- Or perhaps it is just that it is not clear that Moderators function to further the conversation, and not express ideas that the Admin/management do not condone, or do they?

    Pakistani diplomats and politicians are stooges of Saudi Arabia without exception (I think). And in any case the women's rights thing is a "problem" (by hypocritical Western standards) in all Muslim countries. The hypocrisy comes in, for example, when you consider that a third of US women soldiers have been raped by their male counterparts.

    Agreed Pakistan leaders rarely seem to show much independence thought in anything

    It's an excellent bit of data that 1/3 of US female soldiers have been raped by their male counterparts -- it shows exactly what, please do not be economically, explain fully. And please also tackle the issue where in rape is a crime of violence and not PUNISHMENT ordained by councils

    Today there’s no hiding the staggering numbers on sexual assault in the military any more. The Pentagon has just released a new report that shows sexual assaults in the military are up sharply, up to the rate of 70 per day. That translates into almost three rapes every hour, all day long, all night long, every twenty-four hours.

    This shocking report comes just after the Air Force officer in charge of the Air Force’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Office was charged with sexual battery, and following a string of reports on sexual assault in the military, especially in the Air Force.
    It's double standards. The same politicians who use female emancipation as one reason to invade Muslim countries have this level of sexual violence against their own women in uniform. The first gets publicised -- because it serves imperial purposes -- while the second is kept under wraps.

    It;s incredible, you say it's kept under wraps but provide links to where it is being publicized -- I think you are not being clear headed here -- The issue of rape in uniform has reached congress.

    And I do note that you have not dealt with the issue of rape as a crime of violence and one where this is PUNISHMENT sanctioned by councils --- Are there councils in the US armed forces or elsewhere that are legislating, condoning Rape and Sodomy as Punishment in the West?? If so, please high light them
