WITHOUT US OBJECTION – Iran Gets Seat on UN’s Women’s Rights Body #WarOnWomen
In Iran they beat women bloody for showing too much hair.
Police officers reportedly got involved in a physical struggle with three girls who they questioned for their “immodesty”.
It was caught on tape.
The Iranian regime also shoots female protesters on the street.
But this didn’t stop the UN from allowing Iran on the women’s rights body.
Without objection from the Obama administration, Iran gets a seat on the UN’s women’s rights body.
CNS News reported:
The Obama administration on Wednesday criticized Iran’s election to the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) – but neither the U.S. nor any other delegation objected when given the opportunity to do so, thus allowing Iran to get the seat “by acclamation.”
Iran will now serve on the CSW, a body dealing with gender equality and the advancement of women, for another four-year term, having already been a member since 2011.
U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power took to Twitter to express her views: “Yet again Iran unopposed & was ‘elected’ to Commission on Status of Women. Given record on women’s & human rights, this is an outrage.”
But Richard Grenell, who served as spokesman for four U.S. ambassadors to the U.N. during the George W. Bush administration and is a close observer of the world body, was unimpressed with her reaction.
“Ambassador Power can tweet her outrage after the fact all she wants,” he said. “She should have been in the room for the vote and demanded a secret ballot rather than allow an automatic acclamation by her silence.”
