Shame On All Who Stood Silent: Iran Voted In as Member of UN Women's Rights Commission
Last month, the civilized world permitted the Islamic regime of Iran to become a member of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, demonstrating yet again that the UN is just an institution for corrupt oppressors and their equally corrupt allies.
Forty-eight million Iranian women were thus sold out to the barbaric anti-woman Iranian regime by the UN's democratic members. The Islamic patriarchal hierarchy can now claim victory and legitimacy, free to crack down on the women of Iran more harshly than ever.
They voted, by acclamation, to legitimize any and all discrimination and violence against the women of Iran, including: random arrest, imprisonment, torture, stoning, hanging. and rape. They voted to legitimize Iran's laws that consider the value of a woman's life to be one-half the value of a man's life, establishing the second class citizenship of women in all aspects of life by law. They legitimized the Iranian perspective that women are incapable of judgment and unworthy of the custody of their own children. They voted to ignore laws that give men the right to deprive women of education, employment, travel, and even exiting the house. They voted against the girls of Iran who, though they have only half the rights of men, are given criminal responsibility at the age of nine under Article 1210 (1) of Iran's Civil Code.
They voted to unleash even more evil.
