Crooked Europe

The crooked European states, champions of human rights and feminism, are allied with Islamic regimes. Here is why.

By Giulio Meotti, INN

What do dictatorships such as Iran, China, Qatar, Sudan have in common with one of the most advanced democracies in the world, Sweden? A vote at Unesco which last Monday canceled the Jewish roots of Jerusalem, accusing Israel of being “the occupying power” in its own capital and holy city (“fake history” as Benjamin Netanyahu responded). That’s what.

Stockholm, in fact, was the only European country to vote in favor of the resolution of the UN agency for “culture” and science alongside the Arab-Islamic regimes on the day celebrating the independence of the Jewish State (my country, Italy, finally voted against the resolution, while France abstained).

The Israeli government summoned Swedish Ambassador Carl Magnus Nesser to condemn his government’s “hypocrisy” (a few hours before the vote, Nesser had posted a video on Facebook wishing a happy Independence Day to the Israelis). But Sweden did better during that same week; it was not only able to vote alongside hateful Islamist regimes which want to destroy Israel, like Iran. At the UN Commission on Women’s Rights the Swedes were masters of duplicity. This commission has just been admitted to membership, for a period of four years, a regime where women may not drive, where they may not move out of the house without their husbands and that is 134th out of 145 countries according to the World Economic Forum Gender Gap Rating:

Saudi Arabia, or as Algerian novelist Kamel Daoud said, “an ISIS who made it”. Ryadh managed to enter the UN commission that should defend women’s rights through the betrayal of some European countries, including – probably – Sweden (Sweden has refused to confirm whether it voted in favor). Same silence from England and Ireland.

“Sweden has voted for for the Saudis, 90% sure”, said Hillel Neuer, director of UN Watch, while Wikileaks has offered $10,000 to anyone who would reveal the Stockholm vote.

There is certainty about a known European country that voted in favor of the Saudis: Belgium. Prime Minister Charles Michel issued an “apology” for the decision. But it was not a “mistake”. The Brussels’ delegation was explicitly asked to vote in favor of the Saudis and to even let the Saudis know it, as the leaks outlined these days revealed.

Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynder said the delegation sought to “inform the various candidates, including Saudi Arabia” about its support, despite the vote being secret.

A year ago, the English government of David Cameron gave the green light for the Saudi entry into another commission, the one for Human Rights, located in Geneva.

There is nothing that petroleum dollars can not buy, even the famous Swedish foreign policy in the name of “feminism,” tolerance and human rights. Belgium is a great Saudi ally in Europe since 1974, when King Baldovino offered the Saudi House to them, in exchange for important energy supplies, the Pavillon du Cinquantenaire with a lease of 99 years. Two hundred meters from the headquarters of the European Union stands what is known as the Great Mosque through which the Saudis became the de facto Islamic authority of Belgium. 40 years later, the keepers of Mecca continue to collect their bills, at the cost of the shameful betraying of the best of European values.

  1. He understates it. In Saudi Arabia, a woman can’t go to school or even see a doctor without written permission from a male relative! Police chased schoolchildren back into a burning building where they died because they were not covered up! Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is prevalent there as in probably every Muslim country and culture. This is a fascist regime. But then every Muslim state is to one degree or another. Child marriage, forced marriage, polygamy, legal marital battery. It’s a human rights horror show on wheels. just unanimously elected to the women’s rights committee of the UN.

    Honor killings and of course, an atheist was just put to death. As are homosexuals.

    Jews are not persecuted there. Mohammed, himself, exterminated us. The “Pact of Omar” comes later when they begin to conquer foreign lands and as in the beginning with Mohammad, they needed a source of revenue to pillage.

    And he doesn’t answer his own question with which he begins in his very first sentence: “What do dictatorships such as Iran, China, Qatar, Sudan have in common with one of the most advanced democracies in the world, Sweden?”. Bat Yeor did in “Eurabia”

    (I can never remember where the apostrophe in her name goes. Did she do that just to be irritating? Right up there with Bombay/Mumbai, Cambodia/Kampuchea, Burma/Myanmar and a thousand more. And she’s French now (though originally an Egyptian Jewish refugee) on top of it all.)

  2. polygamy is borrowed from Torah law, its practice discontinued in Europe due to Christian persecution in the early Middle Ages.
