Here's just one example of how United Nations is really screwed up!
The UN Commission on the Status of Woman, a functional commission of the UN Economic and Social Council and is dedicated exclusively to gender equality and the advancement of woman. Sounds great! Very 'Progressive'! Well... Iran was just handed a 4 year seat on the influential human rights body!
Yes... Iran! That wonder theocratic state where stoning women is enshrined in Islamic Law and lashings are required for women judged 'immodest'! Where Islamic Law dictates women are NOT equal... where Tehran's Police Chief recently ordered a crackdown on 'suntanned women and girls who walk around looking like mannequins in an effort to cleanse social misbehaviour'. Yes... Iran, where Islamic Cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, recently proclaimed 'immodest cleavage' causes natural disasters... like earthquakes!
(OK! ... as I look stunned, jaw dropped and scratching my head... I ask... Did I really hear that from someone living in the 21st century?)
Wow... Iran now holds a seat on the UN Commission on the Status of Women! Other such notable Countries that have held seats on this prestigious commission are: China... noted for drowning new born baby girls in rice paddy's and Saudi Arabia where women are considered property. Just another outstanding move by the UN.
Basically, the UN is a joke and barely functions as an organization delivering food to refugees.
