Saudi Cleric Sa'd Al-Qa'ub: The CEDAW Agreement Sends Shivers Down Your Spine And Makes Your Hair Stand On End

Following are excerpts from an address by Saudi cleric Sa'd Al-Qa'ud, which was posted on the Internet on July 10, 2012.

Sa'd Al-Qa'ud: "[CEDAW] means the elimination of all types of discrimination against women. In other words, it means complete and total equality between men and women. Allah says: 'And the male is not like the female.'

"The danger of this agreement lies in its being an international agreement. That means, according to the tyrannical international law, that it supersedes all local constitutions. In fact, dear brothers, this agreement contradicts the so-called democracy.

[...]

"Reading the articles of this agreement, dear brothers, sends shivers down your spine, and makes your hair stand on end, due to its hideous nature. One of the articles in this agreement, dear brothers, [calls for] complete equality between men and women. Any distinction between men and women is eliminated.

"One of the articles states that when a girl reaches the age of 18, nobody has guardianship over her – not her father, her husband, her brothers, or anyone for that matter. She can act with complete freedom.

[...]

"They say that a girl younger than 18 has the right to decide when she will become sexually active. It means that she can decide when to exercise her right to commit consensual fornication. On the other hand, she does not have the right to marry before the age of 18.

[...]

"Anyone contemplating this agreement knows full well that this is World War III – this time against the family, Muslim and non-Muslim.

[...]

"Anyone who reads this sinful, infidel CEDAW agreement will see clearly that whoever promoted this agreement, followed it, or helped it come into being has renounced Islam and declared war against Allah and His shari'a."
