Saudi Arabia gets UN Human Rights panel whilst crucifying dissident

In yesterdays issue of The Times (no link £) it was reported that:

A young Saudi Arabian man is facing crucifixion after beheading for attending an anti-government protest in 2012 when he was 17...

Mr al-Nimir, a student was convicted of participating in illegal demonstrations against the state, attacking security forces, possessing a machine gun and armed robbery. He has said the verdict was based on a confession extracted under torture.

This is the same Saudi Arabia that sentenced blogger Raif Badawi for writing about Human Rights to 1,000 lashes. 

This is the Saudi Arabia that bans women from driving and effectively runs a true gender apartheid in their country making women second class citizens with few if any real rights.

And yet today the Independent reports:

The United Nations has been criticised for handing Saudi Arabia a key human rights role - despite the country having “arguably the worst record in the world” on freedoms for women, minorities and dissidents.

As UN Watch states:
“Saudi Arabia has arguably the worst record in the world when it comes to religious freedom and women’s rights, and continues to imprison the innocent blogger Raif Badawi,” Neuer added.

“This UN appointment is like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief, and underscores the credibility deficit of a human rights council that already counts Russia, Cuba, China, Qatar and Venezuela among its elected members.
Yet this is the body that makes all these international laws everyone quotes. How are we to take their resolutions seriously when the worst nations on earth have a say on on basic matters such as Human Rights and Free Speech, which none of these countries believe in anyway.

Saudi Arabia along with other "Islamic" countries demands constant protection for it's "faith" and ants world-wide "blasphemy law" to prevent criticism of their medieval beliefs. 

Yet selling Bibles and building Churches is banned in Saudi Arabia.

Along with every other Human Right you can think of.

The United Nations has no moral authority whilst it's bodies are dominated by Saudi and other charlatans.

Real Human Rights mean democracy, free speech, equal rights for women, and end to the persecution of all minorities including gays, freedom of worship and the separation of religion and all states.

If your blind faith finds that a problem then you are an enemy of Human Rights.

There is a way forward. 

Neither the Vatican or Mecca! Forward to International Secularism!
