Farce: Saudi Arabia Hosting UN Human Rights Conference on Religious Freedom

Despite its reputation as one the world’s worst violators of religious freedom, Saudi Arabia is now hosting in Jeddah a UN human rights conference on combating intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief, attended by the president of the UN Human Rights Council and other top international representatives.

“It’s time for the politics of oil to stop trumping the basic principles of human rights,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based UN Watch, a non-governmental human rights group…

    Only in the—world.

  • Saudi Arabia is now hosting in Jeddah a UN human rights conference on combating intolerance and discrimination based on religion or belief, attended by the president of the UN Human Rights Council and other top international representatives.

    How fucked up can the world get.

    And this: “The Obama Administration sent two top envoys to participate, religious freedom ambassador David Saperstein, and Arsalan Suleman, Acting Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation. Also, Heiner Bielefeldt, UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of religion or belief, addressed one of the panels.”

    The big “O” proves he is a true leader.

    • Just Truth

      Well, for his ideology he is, Bob. If you look at Obama as the leader of a domestic and international cabal aimed at hurt and destroying the United States, then his reign has been phenomenal. The latest news being he is once again abusing his power and enacting gun control against the wishes of entire States, and the people therein.

      • I agree.

        As the Islamic Manchurian Candidate, he has done a wonderful job.

  • I Think

    The World is changing. It’s moving away from European dominance into a more Islamic dominated forecast world with divisions on the border like China etc.

    The UN was infiltrated a long time ago and now stands as nothing as it was stood. Today it is used as a staging ground for all manners of anti-Western movements, policies and global agenda. The main ideology that today guides the UN is Marxism, but the Islamic ideology has a rather large stake in the organization. It appears the Marxists fear Islam, and for good reason.

    40 years from now, Europe will be a majority Islamic continent and its internal societal structure, laws, policies will reflect that.

    At that same time period, the United States will be a mish-mash of nations, completely divided among itself. It will not function as a single entity any longer.

    Look for it to be more akin to a mish-mash of Mexico, Brazil and South Africa with pockets of Islamic enclaves.

    What a gotspe.

    Perfect overlap with their annual listing of “Islamophobia” incidents?; aka tabulation of any hint of vocalized opposition to worldwide Islamic domination. Islamic supremacist rights are human rights under Islam.

    The magic asterisk in Islam is the Jihad exception to everything. For example the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam. Everything other than jihad is pretense at best.

    A minimum predicate to recognition of human rights is full rejection of sharia and Islam in any government.
