The Beat Goes On

Click Cartoon for Larger Size
The United Nations has decided that Iran has much to teach the world about how to treat women, and so has added them to their Commission on Women's Rights.

This, despite the fact that Iranian women are routinely beaten for seeming "too proud," women are being arrested and jailed for having a suntan (which suggests they were improperly veiled, even if no one saw), rape is considered the fault of the victim, and an accusation of adultery can lead to being stoned to death.

Of course, this is the same United Nations that invited Iran's Ahmadinejad to address the world body this week on the subject of nuclear nonproliferation... despite Iran's escalating (and unhindered) nuclear program, and repeated vows to destroy Israel.

Clearly, the members of the United Nations have rocks in their heads.
And, when it comes to women's rights, in their hands.

This is the same country that says unveiled women are the cause of earthquakes and volcanoes. The U.N. and Obama-inspired non-proliferation treaties can't and won't stop them from getting nukes. The world is headed for a very tenuous future.
