The Taliban is about to take a seat on the United Nations commission for women’s rights, to dictate to the world how women should be treated.
In case you think that this is a joke – it is not.
Last year, Afghanistan was granted (by an overwhelming vote) a seat on the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. Now, with the swift takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban terror group, the Taliban will now inherit that seat.
According to the official website, “The Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is the principal global intergovernmental body exclusively dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women.”
But wait… it gets even more insane!
According to United Nations resolution 1996/6, the CSW’s power has been expanded for the United Nations to “mandate and decide that it should take a leading role in monitoring and reviewing progress and problems in the implementation of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and in mainstreaming a gender perspective in UN activities.”
Put another way, The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action will be overseeing, reviewing problems, and implementing solutions to help with women’s equality in traditionally Christian nations like Sweden, Finland, America, UK, France, Australia, etc as might be suggested by the Taliban.
To add insult to injury, guess who will be paying for this? Yep! The finances for the United Nations, the CSW, The Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and even for the seat held by Afghanistan will be paid for by the finances provided by Sweden, Finland, America, UK, France, Australia, etc.
In a statement earlier this month, BTJ partner Mariam Ibraheem put it in words plain enough for anyone to understand when she said, “Sharia Law and women’s rights are incompatible.”
Mariam, being born in Sudan and sentenced to death for refusing to accept Islam, understands life for women under Sharia Law and has warned that the Taliban take over of Afghanistan is a disaster for women.
BTJ is currently sending financial support to Christian women in Afghanistan who have been in hiding since the Taliban took over.
