Saudi At It Again:

Those wacky Muslims from Saudi Arabia are at it again:

After sentencing and carrying out the first round of 7,000 lashes to two men for the heinous crime of simply being a homosexual, the HRC (Saudi's Human Rights Commission... I know, try not to laugh too hard...) had the gall to lecture the EU on their human rights violations against Muslims.

From this source, some of those violations include:

Muslims are unjustly interrogated, treated with disrespect, physically or mentally abused, or not allowed to practice their faith freely such as Muslim girls being prevented from wearing the hijab (head cover) in some schools.


“HRC’s participation in the dialogue is part of its role to communicate and discuss with regional and international rights bodies matters that concern the rights of humans against discrimination on the grounds of race, religion, or sex,” the HRC said in an official statement.

Among topics up for discussion are “Islamaphobia” and the fear Europeans have of Muslims or Islam as a religion. People’s general attitudes toward Muslims will also be on the agenda. Another topic the rights body is expected to address is the history of Islam in Europe, specifically in Spain where Muslims contributed to the prosperity of humanity at a time when most of Europe was struggling through the Dark Ages.

Funny how they fail to mention that Spain was "helped" along by being conquered and subjugated by Muslims, until the Spaniards managed to drive them out.

The yucks just keep on a'coming, huh?
