ANOTHER ABSURDITY FROM THE UNITED NATIONS

The United nations has had many conferences that were absurd in their intended purpose and in those who attended them. The “Oil for Food” program is just one debacle to come out of this distopian body.

So now they are having a Conference on Religious Tolerance at the UN next Wednesday.
And guess who the august head of the UN has chosen to Chair this conference. Saudi Arabia, the oil-rich Islamic kingdom that forbids the public practice of other religious faiths, will preside Wednesday over a two-day U.N. conference on religious tolerance that will draw more than a dozen world leaders, including President Bush, Israeli President Shimon Peres and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

In the history of the World there has not been a more intolerant Country of religions other than the Muslim faith, than Saudi Arabia!

Saudi Arabia has zero tolerance for non-Muslim religions. In the entire country, no churches, synagogues, temples, or other non-Muslim places of worship are permitted. It is illegal to read Bibles or utter a non-Islamic prayer even in the privacy of the home. In its role as the keeper of global Islam, the Saudi Arabian government does not tolerate any practice of religion other than Islam–either by its own citizens or by foreigners. Special religious police, muttawa, enter homes forcibly, searching for evidence of non-Islamic behavior.

A full quarter of the population are foreign workers, many of whom are not Muslims; most frequently, this community is targeted. Last summer 30 foreigners were found to be practicing Christianity in a private home and were imprisoned until, under international pressure, they were deported. In 1997, two Filipino Christians were reportedly executed for praying, and a third was imprisoned and flogged. Source:Wikapedia

There is no religious freedom in Saudi Arabia. With the exception of Wahhabi Islam, all other religions are banned from public life. In principle, Saudi law allows members of other confessions to worship in the privacy of their home, but in practice, this is not the case.

Lest we forget, many Shiites and Sufi* practitioners are also languishing in prison, not to mention some Saudi Muslims fighting for democracy and the respect for human rights. (Source: AsiaNews.it

Despite this fact King Abdulla of Saudi Arabia will be Chairman of this international “Joke”! In the past Abdullah would not even come into a room that was occupied by Jews, especially Simon Peres of Israel. I guess he saves face by his sitting at a separate table form Peres?

The whole thing is just another sham perpetrated on the World community at a very high price. I guess we can expect allot more of these types of”conferences” that president-elect Obama can showcase his “One World” views in the future.

The latest figures I can obtain show that in 2006 the USA contributed $423,464,855.00 to the United Nations budget of $1.9 Billion, or 22% of their total budget. Communist China contributes 2.55% and Russia gives a paltry 1.10% of the total budget.

I believe it is time to close the UN down, brick by brick, and send it to Geneva where it is no longer a “stick in our collective eye” for the absurdities and atrocities it commits in the name of bringing Peace to the World.
