Iran: Election to UN women's body a 'tragedy'


Thanks to Jeff Imm of REAL

New York, 3 May (AKI) - Iran's election to an influential United Nations panel that promotes women's rights has provoked fierce opposition in Italy and elsewhere. The Italian daily, Corriere della Sera described the appointment to the UN Commission on the Status of Women as a "tragedy. "Who knows how this commission will defend women's rights when it comes to the Gohar Dasht prison in the northern Iran city of Karai where in 2005 dozens of women prisoners were reported missing and feared to have been the victims of rape and other unimaginable violence," asked Corriere writer Pierluigi Battista in an editorial published on Monday.

On Thursday, the UN announced that Iran, and 10 other countries, had been elected to the high-profile commission for the term beginning in 2011. Apart from Thailand, Iran was the only nation that put forward candidates to fill two empty seats for the commission’s Asian bloc.

Earlier, Iran announced it was dropping a bid for membership in the UN Human Rights Council after facing strong criticism over its human rights record and major opposition from Western nations.

Often critical of the UN, The Wall Street Journal's European edition on Monday published an editorial attacking Iran's seat on the commission and referred to the "nightmare" faced by Iranian women."Ending the kind of nightmares lived by Iranian women was precisely what Eleanor Roosevelt had in mind in 1946, when she read an open letter to "the women of the world" that would help inspire the UN's women's commission," the editorial said. "Its goals were lofty and remain as important.

Reality, as practiced by the UN, has been otherwise.

"The United States made no formal gesture of disapproval during an acclamation vote affirming the Islamic nation's appointment to the 45-nation group. (GC NOTES:Thank You, Obama and Clinton, you sexist pigs).

But US congressman Thaddeus McCotter, a congressman from the state of Michigan condemned the move. "By electing the Tehran butchers to its commission on the status of women — a morally rancid United Nations has salted the wounds of the Iranian freedom movement's regime-murdered martyrs."

Canadian foreign affairs minister Lawrence Cannon issued a statement on Saturday expressing “serious concerns” about Iran's treatment of women."We deplore this development but will use Iran’s membership on this body to take the Iranian authorities to task for their systemic human rights violations," Cannon said.

If it wasn't so damn horrid it would be downright laughable, so unbelievable it is,

yet, not really. Are we surprised? We shouldn't be, the UN is nothing more than a global Illuminati woman hating child raping blood drinking butcher club. And let's not forget, the UN also with it's I think 18 member panel board with nation-state child raping butchers want to be over children's rights, with numerous leftist women in this country, fighting for that...like how does one wrap their mind around putting Sudan on a child's right platform??????? Darkness rules the planet, no doubt about it...this is Darkness,

and it's getting thicker and thicker.

PROMINENT WOMEN LEADERS PRESS HILLARY CLINTON TO DENOUNCE ELECTION OF ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN TO U.N. WOMEN’S RIGHTS COMMISSION
New York and Washington, May 5, 2010 -- International human rights and women’s rights leaders, attorneys, scholars, columnists, Iranian human rights activists, media figures, women in the arts, and other prominent women have joined a nationwide campaign to urge Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to denounce the recent election of Iran to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.

In an Open Letter to Secretary Clinton released today (text below) the leaders expressed their profound concern that Iran was “elected by acclamation” to the women's rights seat. Election by acclamation may occur when no United Nations member state requests an open vote. The signatories, citing reports by the U.S. State Department and international human rights organizations of the Iranian regime's record of barbaric human rights violations, are seeking answers from Secretary Clinton regarding the failure of the U.S. either to request or require an open vote on Iran’s election to the Commission.

The full text and a partial list of signatories to the letter follows, and more signatories’ names will be released this week.

AN OPEN LETTER TO SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON: DENOUNCE ELECTION OF IRAN TO U.N. WOMEN’S RIGHTS COMMISSION

May 5, 2010

Dear Secretary Clinton:

We write as women leaders from across America and from organizations concerned with women’s human rights representing oppressed women and minorities.
We call on you, Secretary Clinton, to denounce Iran’s election to a four-year seat on the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women as an appointment that shocks the conscience of civilized societies.

We also wish to express our utter astonishment that Iran was “elected by acclamation,” which means that none of the United Nations’ member states – including the United States of America – requested or required an open vote on Iran’s election to the Commission. Why did the United States fail to request an open vote?

In 1995, to an audience of the Fourth World Conference on Women, you declared: "It is time for us to say here in Beijing, and the world to hear, that it is no longer acceptable to discuss women's rights as separate from human rights." You added: "If there is one message that echoes forth from this conference, let it be that human rights are women's rights and women's rights are human rights, once and for all.” http://www.nytimes.com/1995/09/06/world/hillary-clinton-in-china-details-abuse-of-women.html?pagewanted=1

Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney of New York said she "believed that you spoke from personal conviction.”

Therefore, we are puzzled and deeply troubled that, as Secretary, you have remained silent regarding human rights abuses under the brutal Islamic Republic of Iran regime.
The government of Iran is the perpetrator of well-known, well-documented and shocking human rights abuses against women. There are sickening and horrific videos, websites, documented reports of gang rapes, stonings, mutilations, hangings, beatings, burnings and other barbaric acts of violence, intimidation, and humiliation against the women of Iran. Political dissidents, gays, non-Muslim minorities, apostates, and infidels are also targeted in widespread human rights violations and gruesome attacks -- all these atrocities are egregious violations of the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Two hundred and fourteen Iranian activists recently wrote to U.N. member states to oppose Iran’s election to the U.N.'s Commission on the Status of Women. Their letter states: "Iran's discriminatory laws demonstrate that the Islamic Republic does not believe in gender equality…Women lack the ability to choose their husbands, have no independent right to education after marriage, no right to divorce, no right to child custody, have no protection from violent treatment in public spaces, are restricted by quotas for women's admission at universities, and are arrested, beaten, and imprisoned for peacefully seeking change of such laws."

The U.S. Department of State’s 2009 report on Iran’s human rights clearly states the egregious violations of Iran in this area:

The government's poor human rights record degenerated during the year [2009], particularly after the disputed June presidential elections. The government severely limited citizens' right to peacefully change their government through free and fair elections. The government executed numerous persons for criminal convictions as juveniles and after unfair trials. Security forces were implicated in custodial deaths and the killings of election protesters and committed other acts of politically motivated violence, including torture, beatings, and rape. The government administered severe officially sanctioned punishments, including death by stoning, amputation, and flogging. Vigilante groups with ties to the government committed acts of violence. Prison conditions remained poor. Security forces arbitrarily arrested and detained individuals, often holding them incommunicado. Authorities held political prisoners and intensified a crackdown against women's rights reformers, ethnic minority rights activists, student activists, and religious minorities. There was a lack of judicial independence and of fair public trials. The government severely restricted the right to privacy and civil liberties, including freedoms of speech and the press, assembly, association, and movement; it placed severe restrictions on freedom of religion. Official corruption and a lack of government transparency persisted. Violence and legal and societal discrimination against women, ethnic and religious minorities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons; trafficking in persons; and incitement to anti-Semitism remained problems. The government severely restricted workers' rights, including the right to organize and bargain collectively, and arrested numerous union organizers. Child labor remained a serious problem. On November 20, for the seventh consecutive year, the UN General Assembly (UNGA) adopted a resolution on Iran expressing concern about the country's "serious, ongoing, and recurring human rights violations." (emphasis added)

The Commission’s mandate is to review and report on women’s human rights and monitor progress toward improving women’s human rights. Clearly, the election of Iran to such a Commission is an appalling example of hypocrisy. We await your public and clear condemnation of this outrageously sexist and insensitive decision by the U.N.
