Seven countries abstained in UN vote on Saudi Arabia

But Sweden’s “Feminist” government won’t say whether it was one of them.

    Sweden didn’t abstain – Sweden was one of the countries that backed Saudi Arabia’s membership of the UN HRC Women’s Rights Commission, along with four other EU members; the UK, Belgium, France, and Norway.

    GENEVA, April 27, 2017 – The Geneva-based UN Watch — the non-governmental human rights group which exposed the U.N.’s election of Saudi Arabia to its women’s rights commission — welcomed Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel’s statement of “regret” for helping elect the Wahhabist monarchy to the world body tasked with “empowering women” and “promoting gender equality.”

    “Human rights activists everywhere ought to accept this rare apology,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, “provided that it is matched with a real commitment to ending the U.N.’s routine elevation of gross human rights abusers to influential human rights bodies, which only empowers the regimes, not the victims.”

    “Saudi Arabia may have a large part of the world’s oil wealth,” said Neuer, “but their contempt for the basic rights of women should never be legitimized by U.N. bodies or by liberal democracies such as Belgium.”

    Belgium’s disclosure of how it voted is likely to increase pressure on other countries to do the same, and it refutes diplomats’ claims that such information is obliged to be hidden from the public.

    “Because we know there were at least four other EU nations who voted for Saudi Arabia, today we call on France, Sweden, Norway, and the UK, who are among the other members of the 54-nation U.N. Economic and Social Council. to likewise assume responsibility and express regret if indeed they backed Riyadh.”

  • Sweden’s vaginally inclined leaders are a bunch of PC fools.

    Hard to imagine any group of “leaders” to be so intellectually inbred.

    Selling out Sweden with a smile on their idiot faces.

  • A bunch of arrogant, self-righteous women, ready to sacrifice their sisters to the god of pc.

  • Spatchcocked

    A coven of deeply deeply stupid cunts.

    To slightly modify the Duke of Wellington:

    “I don’t know what effect these “persons” will have upon the enemy,
    but, by God, they frighten me.”

    Even among Swedish feminazis, money talks and bullshit walks.

    Sweden is country of silly retards. They’re largely coasting on momentum and will soon run out of stored up food, money, clothing, building materials, oil and guns. Sweden will be Sudan soon. They should be so lucky as to only fall as far as North Korea. Just sit back and watch them flop around for a while until it’s all over.

    I am officially sick of the gay agenda and feminist agenda that have shown their true colours as selfish and siding with the islamofascits .

    Why……because it’s 2017 .

    These will be among the first groups beheaded under sharia but are too stupid and consumed with hatred for the West and White males.
    Let islam purge the West of these genetics defects first, then comes the backlash and war to kick their pedophile butts back to the hell-holes they crawled out from.

    Hmmm ESOC.
    Is that like Ingsoc on steroids?

    I am looking forward to watching Sweden get ethnically cleansed of Swedes by the murderous Muslim barbarians. They rightly deserve their doom.

  • The bigger problem is that the UN exists at all.
