You Can't Make This Stuff Up

Remind me again why the U.S. belongs to this farce of an organization.

UN Gives Iran Leadership Post in Agency for 'Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women'

With little fanfare, a U.N. body has given Iran seats on several entities, including one dealing with women’s empowerment, another with children, a third with narcotics and a fourth with crime prevention and criminal justice.

From January 1 next year, Iran will be a member of the executive board of the U.N. Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (U.N. Women), the executive board of the U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, and Commission on Narcotic Drugs.

In Iran, women are legally barred from holding some government positions, there are no laws against domestic violence, and adultery is punishable by stoning...
Words fail me.

That is truly scary, and one more indication of how LITTLE connection the UN has to reality... sigh
