The Coyote Is In The Hen House

NOT A JOKE: UN Elects Saudi 

Arabia to Women’s Rights Commission

63 12 2  86
The United Nations Economic and Social Council voted late last week to
 place Saudi Arabia on the Commission on the Status of Women for a
 four-year term beginning in 2018, despite that country’s appalling record
 on the treatment of women.

Hillel Neuer, director of the Geneva-based UN Watch, expressed his
 outrage in a statement Friday:
“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.”

“Every Saudi woman,” said Neuer, “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 also bans women from driving cars.”
