Game over: UN elects Iran to its commission on … women’s rights

posted at 5:52 pm on April 29, 2010 by Allahpundit

I think Neda would have wanted it this way, don’t you?

Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged “immodest.”

Just days after Iran abandoned a high-profile bid for a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, it began a covert campaign to claim a seat on the Commission on the Status of Women, which is “dedicated exclusively to gender equality and advancement of women,” according to its website.

This is the same group whose Human Rights Council includes luminaries like China and Saudi Arabia. See now why Ahmadinejad always includes a passage in his annual speech about expanding the number of permanent members in the Security Council or giving more power to the General Assembly? In the interest of “equality,” there’s no laugh test for exerting influence at the UN. The task for its more cretinous members is simply to extend that principle to the real levers of power. Because Iran’s all about equality, you see.

Go have a look at what the newest defender of international women’s rights is up to these days.

Update: Jennifer Rubin has a question.

The U.S. couldn’t muster a word of opposition — not even call for a vote. That would be because . . . why? Because our policy is not to confront and challenge the brutal regime for which rape and discrimination are institutionalized policies. No, rather, we are in the business of trying to ingratiate ourselves, and making the U.S. as inoffensive as possible to the world’s thugocracies.

I noticed AT&T was offering “The Stoning of Soray M” on its Pay Per View setup(UVerse). Made me wonder if 1) there is a market for it they are seeking(Conservatives and exile Iranians?) or 2) a Conservative is running the outfit? Of course Michael Moore’s capitalism doc was an option too.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s secret MySpace entry:

Hi there fellow Islamic bloggers and Islam bloogers to be. My name is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and I am the great and fearless President of the Islamic Republic of Iran and soon to be the defacto President of Iraq too! Soon I will add another feather to my cap by humbling the new American President as he comes on bended knee to apologize for all of America’s sins agains Islam and it’s new great leader – me!

I was was born one of seven children to a humble blacksmith and when I was a child growing up I worked on a farm to earn extra money for my poor father and I got to know a lot of the farm animals very well. I was real nature boy back then. I was a real animal lover. My favorites were the goats of course. I still have such fond memories of my boyhood.

Later I excelled as a student, earning my master’s degree and a Ph.D in civil engineering. I have only three wives, but as the leader of such a great Islamic country and soon to be the dominate power in the Middle East I feel that it is time for me to take my fourth wife. If any nice Islamic ladies are reading this you should email me some time soon. You must be between the ages of 12 and 28 years old. If you are under 12 that would be alright too but you must have a note from a male relative of course.

In addition to my important duties as the Great President of the Islamic Republic of Iran I am now working on my post graduate science project, which when completed in a very few years, I will test on Evil Israel and the Great Satin America.

Who I would like to meet … …
In addition to my fourth wife, and remember if you are under 12 years old, you must have a note from a male relative, I would like to meet other dedicated members of the Great Religion of Slaughter Peace, Islam of course. We can all get together after work and spend time reading inspiring passages from the Koran and comparing notes on our mutual love of farm animals. We can also go over a list of priority test sites for my almost complete science project. It will be a blast! It will make much bigger holes than the one in New York that I am going to visit only for comparison purposes!

The UN may have started with the idea of allowing nations to dampen each others’ external aggression, but it’s now mainly a means for thugs to protect their internal aggression.

It’s an old-boy’s club for dictators… Obama will never quit it, but the next President should.

Surely a nation as deeply in debt as the United States of America can think of something better to do with its money than to fund this anti-American circus. It’s not even funny any more. It’s time to pull the plug on the U.N.

clnurnberg on June 3, 2010 at 7:11 PM

I am yet again strongly urging all Zionist and Christian Pigs and Apes forces who are working with Benjamin Netanyahu against the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah to submit immediately.

Otherwise, we will hold them responsible for their actions. Any attempt to fight the Islamic Holy forces of Allah is now completely pointless. We are committed to putting all of the world under our jurisdiction.

You cannot overcome the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah now that we have our brother, Imam Obama, in control of your country and your military. Any individual or group that tries to fight the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah will now be humiliated at the White House or cashiered from your Army. With the help of our brother, Imam Obama, the Islamic Holy Forces of Allah will easily overcome Benjamin Netanyahu and all of his Zionist and Christian Pigs and Apes and their Hotair Pigs and Apes stooges. Allah willing.

The great dream of Islam is comming true. Muslims dream to see flags that read: “There is no God but Allah” fluttering in the wind over the White House, the Pentagon, the Temple Mount and Haram al-Sharif, and over the EIB network and all of Hotair, Allah willing.
