Yes, we’ve seen the video going around of the lesson on “How to beat your wife”. The government of Saudi Arabia put out this PSA to help the men out. It’s laughable that in this day and age a government would do something so asinine. You’d think the Obama administration would come out against this horrible video. BUT…Do you realize that our very own government welcomed Saudi Arabia in a lead position on human rights at the United Nations?
SAUDI ARABIA IS THE UNITED NATIONS HEAD OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL…Unreal, huh? OUR OWN STATE DEPARTMENT “WELCOMED” SAUDI ARABIA AS THE HEAD OF THIS HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL:
“Last week’s announcement that Saudi Arabia — easily one of the world’s most brutally repressive regimes — was chosen to head the U.N. Human Rights Council panel provoked indignation around the world. That reaction was triggered for obvious reasons. Saudi Arabia executed more than 100 people already this year.”
STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESPERSON’S STATEMENT WHEN ASKED ABOUT THIS: “The U.S. government “welcomes” the appointment of Saudi Arabia to a leadership position on this Human Rights panel because it’s a “close ally.”
The national television of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has aired a video, in which a self-styled Islamic family doctor is seen teaching men in the country how to ‘properly’ beat their wives.
The video is believed to have been aired in the country in early February, 2016. The Kingdom’s government is said to have approved the video, and that is why it was given airtime on national television.
After airing the video in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi government released the controversial video in the United States via the Washington DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute, in April 2016. Women activists group describe the video as nothing less than infuriating.
The content of the video features the doctor who is said to specialize in therapy; Khaled Al-Saqaby teaching men how to ‘properly’ beat their wives if their wives disobey them.
