This week the United Nations elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women which seeks equal rights and opportunities for women around the world.

Response: This belongs to the ‘you have got to be kidding’ department. Iran is famous for stoning and lashing women and their Sharia judicial system is among the worst in the world when it comes to equal justice and treatment of women.

Not only that, ‘honor’ killing of women is tolerated and common place in Iranian culture. It’s probably one of the worse places for woman’s rights in the world and they get a seat on the Status of Women Commission?

What a joke. What’s even worse is that the US government didn’t even protest the choice. What’s with the Obama administration anyway—what are they thinking? I thought Sec. Clinton was all for woman’s rights.           *Top
