U.N. Elects Iran On Commission To Women’s Rights?

________________________________________________________
“U.N. Elects Iran On Commission To Women’s Rights?”  –  You have got to be kidding! 
Since when did Iran become the champions for “Women’s Rights”?  The women in Iran are being persecuted!
According to Anne Bayefsky who wrote the article “Since When Is Iran a Champion For Women’s Rights?” on Fox News online dated April, 29, 2010.
In an effort to prevent Iran’s election to the Commission, the National Iranian American Council reported prior to the meeting: “in the past year, Iran…has charged women who were seeking equality in the social sphere…with threatening national security…Its prison guards have beaten, tortured, sexually assaulted and raped female and male civil rights protesters…In universities…the government is now banning women from key areas of study. Childcare centers are being shut down to hamper women’s ability to work…Women’s publications that addressed gender equality have been shut down. The regime is attempting to erase decades of struggle and progress.”
Iran originally wanted a seat at the U.N. Human Rights Council and failed to be accepted because of their far from “stellar records” which would have embarrassed the Council, so Iran was given a seat at the Commission on the Status of Women.   
Once again, women are to be “stripped of their rights” and “used and abused” at the hands of their tormentors!
Iran was elected by acclamation. It was one of only two candidates for two slots allocated to the Asian regional bloc – in other words, a fixed slate and a done deal.
What is the Commission on the Status of Women all about?
The Commission on the Status of Women was established in 1946 with the usual stated lofty goals. CSW was charged with “promoting women’s rights” and making “recommendations on urgent problems requiring immediate attention in the field of women’s rights.” The forty-five member states meet annually at U.N. headquarters in New York, boasts the U.N. website, to “identify challenges, set global standards and formulate concrete policies to promote gender equality and advancement of women worldwide.”
Since it’s inception in 1946, what exactly has the Commission accomplished?
For years the CSW has only ever adopted one resolution naming any country for violating women’s rights — you guessed it – Palestinian women’s rights allegedly violated by Israel. The Commission is “gravely concerned” about Israeli violations of Palestinian rights. The right to life of Palestinian women and girls subject to honor killings, coerced into becoming suicide bombers or child soldiers at the hands of non-Israelis somehow has never made it on to their radar screen. And the same is true of the rights of women and girls violated by any other specific state on earth but Israel.
Let’s face it, the U.N. and it’s so-called “illustrious board” could give a “flying fig” about “Women’s Rights”!
This is another example of just one more U.N. body created to do one thing and now doing the opposite, for which American taxpayers foot 22% of the bill. And it will continue unless those with their hands on the spigot in Congress finally decide to turn off the tap.
Notice Ms. Bayefsky’s words ” And it will continue unless those with their hands on the spigot in Congress finally decide to turn off the tap.”
The United Nations an organization that have been criticized by many over an extensive period of time and We the American People/Taxpayers are housing them in the United States and paying for their upkeep!
You can read the entire article of Ms. Bayefsky:
In the following article written by Mr. Abrams:

“Many women who do not dress modestly … lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes,” said the respected cleric, Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi.
