In Saudi Arabia, women are essentially possessions of men, subject to all the harshest Sharia restrictions on their movement and freedom. It is illegal to practice Christianity or Judaism or any religion other than Islam there. In Nigeria, Christians are subjected to increasingly bloody Muslim persecution that shows no signs of abating and that the government apparently cannot stop. In Chad, women are subjected to female genital mutilation and Islamic jihadists from neighboring countries find ready refuge when the heat gets too high. These three countries are perfect for the thoroughly corrupt and compromised UN.
"UN Security Council elects Nigeria, Chad, Saudi Arabia, Lithuania and Chile," from the Associated Press, October 17:
UNITED NATIONS — Saudia [sic] Arabia and Chad easily won coveted seats on the U.N. Security Council Thursday, despite criticism from human rights groups. Nigeria, Lithuania and Chile also won seats.
The five candidates endorsed by regional groups faced no opposition after there were no contested races for the first time in several years.
The countries were elected in the first round of voting by the 193-member General Assembly. Lithuania was the top vote-getter with 187 votes followed by Nigeria and Chile with 186 votes, Chad with 184 votes and Saudi Arabia with 176 votes.
Security Council seats are highly coveted because they give countries a strong voice in matters dealing with international peace and security, in places like Syria, Iran and North Korea, as well as the U.N.’s far-flung peacekeeping operations.
