Saudi Arabia was offered a seat on the UN Security Council and turned down the offer because that body was not fighting for the rights of people in Syria nor for the rights of Palestinians. “The kingdom sees that the method and work mechanism and the double standards in the security council prevent it from properly shouldering its responsibilities towards world peace.” It is very upset at failure of the world body to deal effectively with the issue of securing peace for the people of Syria. Now, let me get this straight.
1. Saudi women are second class citizens who can not even drive a CAR!
2. There is no freedom of religion in Saudi Arabia.
3. People have hands chopped off for being a criminal.
4. Foreign workers are abused and exploited and frequently treated as semi-slaves.
Yes, Saudi Arabia stands for peace!
