Default Iran Appointed to U.N. Women’s Rights Committee

United Nations appoints sharks to the Seal Committee...

Iran Appointed to U.N. Women’s Rights Committee

Quote:
Iran, one of the top human rights abusers in the world, has been awarded a seat on a key United Nations committee that oversees complaints about the global abuse of women.

An announcement by the U.N. on Wednesday said that Iran and Nigeria, another country that is no stranger to human rights abuses, would be promoted to the international organization’s Committee on the Status of Women, which oversees abuses committed by oppressive states, such as Iran and Nigeria.

Foreign policy observers on Twitter were quick to condemn the decision and bemoaning the U.S. taxpayer dollars that are used to fund such committees.

Quote:
No joke: the Islamic Republic of #Iran was just appointed to the @UN_Women's rights committee that judges complaints of women's rights violations.

Yes, a day after the regime sentenced women's rights lawyer Nasrin Sotudeh to 38 years prison & 148 lashes. https://t.co/PPe20erKgV pic.twitter.com/c6bebPqy8j

Sadly, nothing more than another of the plethora of examples why the UN is crap...

The United States needs to leave the UN and demolish the building in NY to make way for something more useful like a landfill. The UN is nothing but a joke and a league of anti-Semites.

As with many things, there was a time that the YN actually did some good. Niw, no so much. Our money is wasted supporting the UN.

This is the most bizarre thing I've heard in a while.

I agree that we should leave the UN, but I'd like to see that anti-American organization be charged the outrageous amount of rent that an equivalent building would cost to rent in NYC.
