Making an arsonist into the town fire chief

Post  wfrad on Tue 25 Apr 2017, 9:05 am

Saudi Arabia has been appointed to the United Nations body responsible for the "promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women", despite its reputation as one of the least women-friendly countries on the planet.

The Islamic kingdom, where every woman must have a male guardian, usually the father or husband, was elected to the UN's Commission on the Status of Women for the 2018-2022 term, according to UN Watch, a Geneva-based human rights group.

"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."

The Saudi Arabian regime was ridiculed in March 2017 when it released a photo from the inaugural event of its Girls Council in the country's al-Qassim province in which only men were shown.

Or it's like trusting Michael Jackson to babysit.
