The United Nations ineffectiveness has been well-documented, as has its predilection for granting voice, credence, and credibility to some of the world’s worst leaders. Now comes perhaps the ultimate contradiction: Saudia Arabia will preside over the U.N.’s 2-day conference on religious tolerance. Yes, the same Saudis who not so long ago flogged a female rape victim, etc., etc.
This sums it up well:
"Saudi Arabia is not qualified to be a leader in this dialogue at the United Nations," said Ali Al-Ahmed, a Saudi national who serves as director of the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs. "It is the world headquarters of religious oppression and xenophobia."
