U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon publicly acknowledge Thursday that he removed the Saudi-led coalition currently bombing Yemen from a blacklist of child killers - 72 hours after it was published - due to a financial threat to defund the United Nations programs.
The secretary-general didn't name the source of the threat, but news reports have indicated it came directly from the Saudi government.
The most surprising bit of this story? The part where the United Nations thought they wouldn't get any backlash from good ole Saudi Arabia.
Where their solution to gayness is just to execute all the gays
. Nobody wants to be blacklisted for killing kids. Not even the people who kill kids. And women. And themselves, but only if they're blowing up the infidels. As reasonable people do.
Not pointing any fingers here. Just kidding, Jihadtown - population: all of Saudi Arabia. To their credit, the Arabs have donated hundreds of millions of dollars to the UN in one sitting. More than anyone else has. That tends to happen when you have a guilty conscience.
...And forget that we blasted all those people to bits.
[The] Saudi Ambassador to the U.N. offered his own back-handed confirmation of what happened. "We didn't use threats," he said... "It is not in our style, it is not in our genes, it is not in our culture to use threats and intimidation," he concluded.
Whatever you say, pal. Except no, I don't believe you. Huge cash dumps followed by blacklist removal is more than a coincidence.
Middle eastern culture - Muslim culture - rarely
gets the criticism it deserves
. When it does... This happens. Somebody speaks up about all the killing and everyone loses their hijabs. The moral of the story is Saudi Arabia sucks. Also, this is why we should never stop talking about the dangers of Islam. But mostly, Saudi Arabia sucks. As does the spineless UN. You don't see atheist Sweden blowing people to kingdom come. The point is, there's a bomb-vested elephant in the room. Somebody should point it out before it goes ka-boom.
Speaking of how Islam sucks, here's a rebuttal to a Muslim. Learn something.
