UN Elects Largest Oppressor of Women, Saudi Arabia, to Women’s Rights Commission — Seriously

By Jack Burns

Saudi Arabia isn’t known for gender equality. In fact, the Saudi government’s idea of fair play among the sexes is ensuring women their husbands can only have three more wives. Saudi women truly have zero rights in society. Ranking Saudi Arabia among the 10 worst countries for women, the Toronto Star wrote,

In oil-rich Saudi Arabia, women are treated as lifelong dependents, under the guardianship of a male relative. Deprived of the right to drive a car or mix with men publicly, they are confined to strictly segregated lives on pain of severe punishment.

So, imagine the surprise and dismay the world is now exhibiting with the knowledge the United Nations has elected Saudi Arabia as a member of its Women’s Rights Commission called the “Commission on the Status of Women.”

Geneva-based UN Watch president Hillel Neuer likened the election to, “making an arsonist into the town Fire Chief!” Neuer went on a Twitter tirade to drive home the significance of his opposition to allowing Saudi Arabia to have a seat anywhere near a women’s rights council.

“The news the @UN never wanted you to see—but we made it go viral. Saudi Arabia elected to women’s rights commission,” he tweeted. Calling on opponents to rise up, he stated, “But why not show moral courage & condemn this UN betrayal of Saudi women’s rights activists? UNESCO’s chief condemned its election of Syria.”

And in another tweet, he said, “How does Saudi Arabia win seats on U.N. human rights bodies? Cash & secret deals—even with adversaries like Russia.” Neuer’s reference to Saudi money, certainly a factor in buying their way onto the commission, is nothing new. The Free Thought Project has been chronicling their monetary influence for years.

Earlier this year we told you the Saudis heavily influence John McCain’s politics, leading some to question his motives for encouraging the U.S. to join the Syrian Civil War. And on the Democratic side of the two-party-paradigm, the Saudis have given millions to the Clintons. So, it should come as no surprise watch dogs like UN Watch are saying the same thing about the Saudis.

What does it mean for the world now that the Saudis have a seat at the women’s rights table? Glad you asked….UN Watch describes the election as very significant.

The fundamentalist monarchy is now one of 45 countries that, according to the U.N., will play an instrumental role in “promoting women’s rights, documenting the reality of women’s lives throughout the world, and shaping global standards on gender equality and the empowerment of women.”

The election, also, was anything but transparent. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia was elected by a “secret ballot” last week at the U.N.’s 54-nation Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The U.S. reportedly objected to a Saudi nomination and pressed the countries of the world to take a vote, in protest of the ECOSOC’s customary practice of “rubber stamping” nominations. Unfortunately for women, the vote passed and the Saudis were placed on the commission.

Saudi Arabia, who was exposed by the 28-pages for helping to fund the 9/11 terrorist attacks which brought down the World Trade Center’s twin towers, and who is being sued in court by families of the victims, is the same country which kills homosexuals and stones adulterers.

When 9/11 happened, instead of going after the Saudis — who made up the majority of the hijackers — the George W. Bush administration attacked and overthrew Saddam Hussein’s regime in Iraq, and destroyed the country of Afghanistan.

If you need any evidence on just how oppressive the Saudi regime is, look no further than the video below that aired on national television — an instructional video on how to beat your wife.

The video features a Saudi doctor, Khaled Al-Saqaby, who deals with the often ‘thorny’ issue of how and when to beat your wife. Al-Saqaby begins the video by telling husbands not to immediately attack their wives, but to discipline them properly first.

When speaking of how women some women say they would like to be treated with equality, Al-Saqaby called this a “very grave problem.”

He says, “The first step is to remind her of your rights and of her duties according to Allah. Then comes the second step – forsaking her in bed.”

The third step, beating, has to correspond with the “necessary Islamic conditions” before taking action.

“The beating should not be performed with a rod, nor should it be a headband, or a sharp object.”

Instead, husbands should use a ‘tooth-cleaning twig or with a handkerchief’ to beat their wife.

Hopefully, then, the wife will “feel that she was wrong in the way she treated her husband.”

At the end of the video, Al-Saqaby lets the wife-beating husbands of Saudi Arabia know that sometimes, you may have to dole out an extra beating outside of the world of just discipline. Sometimes, according to this sicko ‘doctor,’ they just deserve to be beaten.

  1. This is pretty much the UN in our face ……. telling us that they are completely bogus. Totally irrelevant. Could you imagine a worse joke?

      Could you imagine a worse joke?
      As a matter of fact, I can. The people stand by and do nothing about the ever growing corruption within this mafia that pretends to be perceived authority. The violations couldn’t be more blatant and ridiculous.

      Next up… North Korea has been assigned head of the IAEA.

      We will never solve our problems by looking to the ones who actually created them.
      Doing the same thing and expecting different results is a sign of insanity, yet we continue on with gleeful abandon towards it.

      Where are all the women who were on a witch hunt for Donald Trump when it was reported he made the p word statement. Domination and mutilation of women is okay but say the p word and we’ll hang you. Yeah, we make a lot of sense. Now you see why the rest of the world thinks we’re nuts.
      We prove it everyday.

  2. The commission wants to learn repressive techniques usual against women in this part of the World.
    The UN does not know the news of the World.

    This is ALL PRE planned baby steps by the globalists….get the Saudis in the U.N. under women’s rights so that THEY can PUSH/Force Sharia law into the mix.
    The U.N. NOW has a LAME EXCUSE to start pushing Sharia law to appease the Saudis.
    All Smoke & (Broken) Mirrors political One world AGENDA scripted SHOW for our viewing entertainment & distraction.

  4. This reporting skirts along an edge of a limited hangout by not providing the context of the rapid and radical social neoliberalization of Saudi society, including the roles of women. It’s been on a steady pace moving towards this endgame for at least five to ten years. The first five years vapid television programs modeled after the old American 60s-80s shows were being consumed daily (source NY Times, confirmed by a friend teaching at a Saudi university). The last five years they’ve been shifting to catch up (90s to present) with young Saudi’s being strongly westernized through the internet. Not only are cultural attitudes being affected, approx five years ago, the Saudis began adding women to previously all-male govt councils and advisory boards. In 2015, Saudi women were allowed to vote for the first time.

    With the formal launching of Agenda 2030 last year in KSA and the rest of the GCC, this process has kicked into overdrive. Austerity and new social imperatives are being used to compel women to work full time. This would be similar to the breakup of the family unit engineered in the west.

    • Also note, last year with the formal launching of 2030 came a partial dismantling of the infamous Ministry of Virtue and Elimination of Vice and a new Ministry of Entertainment (that’s the real title!) was unveiled, announced in a packed auditorium as a curtain opened on a darkened stage and dancers from New York wearing LED lights all over their bodies began to gyrate to hip hop music – the packed audience of men and women clapped and cheered wildly in enthusiastic approval.

      The globalists are moving fast while we’re kept distracted analyzing old paradigms.

  5. The U.N. is a Satanic Globalist New World Order ORGANIZED CRIME SYNDICATE organization, so it makes PERFECT SENSE that Saudi Arabia, with their well known & obvious abuse of women, would be chosen for the Women’s Rights organization.

    • The UN is nothing but the nation that comprise it. To call it a secret ballot is a lie, each of the countries governments in that ballot know exactly who was voted for and why. Only the general public was denied that knowledge, want to know who voted for whom, simply find out which governments were involved and demand they fess up.
