RUSH: From Anne Bayefsky at Fox News: “Guess who is the number one violator of women?’s rights in the world today?” I posed the question right before the end of the previous hour, and the staff on the other side of the glass, they’re all guessing, “Ah, it’s gotta be Saudi Arabia. It’s gotta be Iran. It’s gotta be, it’s gotta be, it’s gotta be, it’s gotta be some Muslim country for crying out loud.” No, no, no. According to the UN, who is the number one violator of women’s rights in the world today? The answer is — dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut — Israel! (laughing) They’re violating the rights of Palestinian women.
It’s just absurd. Look, if you want to understand, Israel is the Tea Party. That’s all you have to know. Israel is the Tea Party and Benjamin Netanyahu is Todd Akin, as far as the American left, the worldwide left, as far as the Democrat Party is concerned. Israel is the Tea Party, Benjamin Netanyahu may as well be Todd Akin, or what was her name, Christine O’Donnell. I mean, that’s the only way you can possibly understand this. Iran is the Service Employees International Union. The Palestinians are the NAALCP.
I mean, if you want to understand how this works, if you want to have this make the slightest bit of sense to you from the leftist perspective, it’s what you must understand. Iran is the Service Employees International Union, big donors to the Democrats, they’re on same side of issues. The Palestinians, Hamas, Fatah, they are the NAALCP and the Congressional Black Caucasians. Let’s see, who else? Western Europeans would be the equivalent of the feminazis, actually in more ways than one there. And the enemy, the enemy of this coalition, the coalition of the American Democrat Party, Iran, Palestinians, Fatah, Hezbollah, and Western European, that’s the equivalent, that’s the Democrat Party. Everybody else may as well be the Tea Party, and that’s how you understand this.
Now, here you have Boko Haram, which is bragging about the number of women they have kidnapped and killed. You have Islamic Sharia law, which is the most discriminatory against women philosophy you can probably find on earth. There may be some weirder ones in obscure places. Iran is still stoning women. They just stoned Soraya. And they’re beheading people. You are absolutely right. Saudi Arabia is beheading people. In Saudi Arabia women can’t drive. Nowhere can they drive. They have to cover their heads and so forth.
Even the American journalists go over there and fall for it, Christiane Amanpour covers up, probably doesn’t drive. She probably doesn’t drive anyway. Chauffeur. Andrea Mitchell, NBC News, Washington, she goes over there, she covers up, she dresses the part and then all the while ripping the shreds out of Netanyahu. (laughing) Sometimes all you can do is laugh.
So the number one violator of women’s rights in the world today is Israel, violating the rights of Palestinian women. “That’s the view of the UN?’s top women?’s rights body, the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). CSW ends its annual meeting on Friday, March 20 by condemning only one of the 193 UN member states for violating women?’s rights — Israel.
“Not Syria. Where government forces routinely employ rape and other sexual violence and torture against women as a tactic of war. … Not Saudi Arabia. Where women are physically punished if not wearing compulsory clothing, are almost entirely excluded from political life, cannot drive, cannot travel without a male relative, receive half the inheritance of their brothers, and where their testimony counts for half that of a man?’s.”
Although the Saudis just did give women the right to vote for the first time in this year’s upcoming elections. They didn’t promise to count them. (laughing) Well, it said they could vote, but they haven’t promised yet to count them.
“Not Sudan. Where domestic violence is not prohibited. There is no minimum age for ‘consensual’ sex. The legal age of marriage for girls is ten. 88% of women under 50 have undergone female genital mutilation. And women are denied equal rights in marriage, inheritance and divorce. Not Iran. Where every woman who registered as a presidential candidate in the last election was disqualified.”
Here’s Obama on TV talking to the people of Iran, trying to develop a rapport and create an accord. Adultery in Iran, if a woman is caught committing adultery, “punishable by death by stoning. Women who fight back against rapists and kill their attackers are executed.” Did you not know this? “The constitution bars female judges. And women must obtain the consent of their husbands to work outside the home.”
There’s no possibility that the UN Commission on the Status of Women will criticize Iran because Iran is an elected member of the Commission on the Status of Women. Sudan is currently the vice-chair position of the Commission on the Status of Women. Now, I’m gonna trying to get serious for a moment, but it’s a waste of time. This is the place, folks, where every half-baked, cockamamie theory about global warming is coming from. I honestly, I cannot relate to any of this that comes out of the UN. This is beyond parody and beyond description.
I mean, they’re very serious here. In all of these countries I just listed, the offenses and the rules and the prohibitions against women, they’re all true. In Iran if a woman is raped and she fights back and kills her attacker, they kill her. And Iran is a member in good standing of the UN commission on the rights of women or whatever it is. Israel, officially announced as the top violator of women’s rights in the world. Israel.
This organization, United Nations, is just an abject joke. It’s a bad joke. The fact that there are so many in the American diplomatic corps that take this organization seriously — this organization is due serious condemnation. I mean, this goes beyond offensive. This goes beyond absurd. This is the stuff of nightmares, but the reality is what it is. And of course when you say that Israel, an ally of the United States and of course Jewish, the number one location, by the way, the most focused anti-Semitism on this planet is at the United Nations. And here’s Barack Obama sidling up to it. The American Democrat Party, the American left, the United Nations is the end all, the United Nations source authority, the United Nations inviolate.
This goes beyond argument. We need to get out of the UN. This is seriously corrupt. But it’s even beyond that. ‘Cause these people are serious. And the nations we’re talking about literally have the tyrannical, dictatorial power to implement all of this. There are people in the world being forced to live this way, and it is a shame that the United States of America in any way sidles up to any of these nations and offers tantamount support. And then while that’s happening, to have to sit around and listen to the same people call American conservatives and Israeli Jews the modern focus of evil in the world, as the big problem facing the world? This is seriously wrong, it is seriously corrupt, and it is an absolute outrage that the United States of America gives any of it the time of day.
