Saudi Arabia elected to U.N Commission on the Rights of Women

There are occasions when a news headline tells the entire story, leaving little else to be said – and this is one such occasion.

The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women claims to be ‘exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.’

While the rest of the world tries not to laugh out loud, this agency will now spend the next five years carrying out this mandate under the “guidance” of a country that believes women should not drive motor cars, but requires them to have a male guardian to make all material decisions on their behalf – because they cannot be empowered to run their own lives, far less have an influence on anyone else’s.

On Monday, the United Nations inexplicably elected Saudi Arabia to the Women’s Rights Commission…

Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch has said: Electing Saudi Arabia to protect women’s rights is like making an arsonist into the town fire chief. I am not so sure. An arsonist would surely generate a lot of activity and create some meaningful work for the Fire Department to do.

Neuer continued, “This is a black day for women’s rights, and for all human rights. Saudi discrimination against women is gross and systematic in law and in practice. Every Saudi woman must have a male guardian who makes all critical decisions on her behalf, controlling a woman’s life from her birth until death. Saudi Arabia bans women from driving cars. Why did the U.N. choose the world’s leading promoter of gender inequality to sit on its gender equality commission?” Neuer concluded by adding, “Today the UN sent a message that women’s rights can be sold out for petro-dollars and politics and it let down millions of female victims worldwide who look to the world body for protection.”

This is more like appointing a man who is deaf, dumb and blind to conduct the orchestra. It may result in something – I just doubt whether anyone will be very impressed with it.

Tucker Carlson had more on the ridiculousness:

Peter A. Gallo

A native of Edinburgh, Scotland, Peter spent 19 years in the Far East as an investigator in the private sector, based in Hong Kong, he worked on pre-investment Due Diligence, fraud and corruption investigations throughout China and the Asia-Pacific, and was recognised as a leading authority consulting on money laundering and terrorist financing prevention. In 2011 he was recruited by the United Nations Office of Internal Oversight Services and spent four years based in New York, gaining a unique insight into the inefficiencies fostered by the UN in practice. He graduated in law from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, has an MBA from Strathclyde and an LLM in International Criminal Law from the University of Torino, Italy. Admitted to practice law in Scotland, Hong Kong and New York, he has written and provided training in the prevention and investigation of financial crime to both professional and academic audiences, having been a Certified Fraud Examiner and Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist. Following his experience with the UN, he is now an outspoken critic of the corruption and ineptitude inherent in the Organization, particular in respect of it's failure to investigate fraud, waste and abuse within the UN system and the Organizations failure to protect women and children from sexual exploitation.
