    UN ‘Rights’ Gang – Ganging Up Against Prisoner Princess?

    The full video has since been published on YouTube by a variety of sources:  https://youtu.be/UN7OEFyNUkQ

    A desperate plea for help, and how did that old bat Mary Robinson respond?.

    Robinson said she had sent a report on the matter to Michelle Bachelet, the current UN high commissioner for human rights, and had spoken with Bachelet’s predecessor the Jordanian royal Zeid bin Ra’ad al-Hussein. “These are good friends of mine and we discussed the case,” said Robinson…  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/dec/27/mary-robinson-labelled-a-willing-pawn-of-uae-over-visit-with-princess

    Well, Eire’s ex-President has been assured by the princess’s jailers, the ‘ruling family’ of an Arab despotism, that the imprisoned Princess Latifa, who has….

    …not been heard from since she was seized from a yacht off the coast of India in March. In a video that she instructed friends to release in case an attempt to escape Dubai went wrong, Latifa said she spent seven years trying to flee a gilded prison and feared torture if captured.

    ….is a nutjob, and the old biddy swallowed it whole, and just to make sure, she’s bringing on board some arrogant allies, the Jordanian Prince and the Chilean Socialist…

    Exit Uppity Arab – Red Bat Flies In! 

    …who, like herself, as ‘UN High Commissioners for Human Rights’ (what pompous titles these slugs revel in) have carefully over-looked shariah law as the world’s biggest blight on women’s rights…

    sharia

    …and as you can see from this picture ( below) taken in Somalia a few years ago, Robinson was never reluctant to don the symbol of shariah subjugation.

    I’m not usually one to echo the views of people like Ken Roth, of HRW, but he surely has a point when he notes that “Mary Robinson said in the BBC interview that Princess Latifa is ‘a troubled young woman’, though I would be troubled too if I had tried to escape a gilded prison and was kidnapped back into it…”

    Similarly, I doubt that Aisha Ali-Khan, ‘a UK-based human rights campaigner’ would agree with much of what I blog about, but on this occasion, I agree with her.

    “It seems clear to me that Robinson has been used as a willing pawn in the PR battle between the UAE ruling family and the rest of the world.”

    PS -Interesting facts about Dubai,which forms part of the Union of Aram Emirates, from wikipedia.

    Dubai has been ruled by the Al Maktoum family since 1833…The UAE has a Minister of Happiness, appointed by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The UAE has also appointed a Minister of Tolerance…The Dubai Police Force, founded in 1956 in the locality of Naif, has law enforcement jurisdiction over the emirate. The force is under direct command of Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum.

      I think everyone across the political spectrum thinks the princess has been very badly treated and I hope she escapes again.
      The only good news is that those “High and Mighty” UN Commissioners are now widely disliked and people see them as they are part of a global elite who like to lecture all of us except their cronies.

      Everyone has human rights – except those Robinson’s shariah friends oppress.

    Three Cheers for Jakarta, Where People Are Normal and Nice! 


    Yesterday I shopped briefly whilst meandering around Jakarta.

    plasasemanggi-retailmalls

    Bulk shopping bores me – more fun (and easier to lug home on the angkot) if one picks up a few items at a time, Carrefour one day, Hypermarket the next or Lotte Mart or maybe Giant, which is where I went yesterday, their branch in Plaza Semanggi.

    In the past, I’ve rated them for their bargain prices – Giant is the overall winner there, as a rule, with Carrefour at the bottom of the league – a ‘50% off’ sticker is a rarity in those stores!

    =============================

    • Blok  M Square's Carrefour

    • And it’s always an interesting exercise to judge who’s got the prettiest shop assistants. Carrefour, on balance, though Lotte ain’t far behind!

    In the department store stakes, Matahari wins hands down in terms of attractive staff.

    But when you go to a supermarket cashier, everyone queues together. Yesterday’s cashier was a scarfed lady, who totted up my purchases, exchanging polite pleasantries as she did so.

    No nasty, sectarian apartheid, as is apparently the case in Dubai. 

    “The signs put in the supermarkets are to display that products must be segregated since we received many complaints from people who did not think it was right to have the same cashier for non-Muslim foods and other foods,” he said.  Separate cashiers for non-Muslim foods at Dubai supermarkets | GulfNews.com.

    Apartheid in action, inspired by fanatics.

    But let’s not imagine only Arab countries harbour such nonsense – we’ve reported before on a bigot bint in England, who should have been fired but wasn’t.

    So let me sing another verse of my daily song of praise for Jakarta, and the friendly folk who live here – 90% Muslim, and some of their co-religionists in the UK and the Gulf would do well to learn from their civilised mentality.

    i love jkt
