Saudi Foreign Minister: We Have Right Not to Follow Any (LGBT Rights) Agenda That Runs "Counter to Islamic Law"

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir
Well now that the UN has elected Saudi ambassador Faisal Trad to chair the UN Human Rights Council panel, they had better get right on the terrible human rights situation in Saudi Arabia and perhaps speak up against Saudi Foreign Affairs Minister Adel Al-Jubeir:
Saudi Arabia has protested any references to homosexuality in a new UN development program, saying it is "counter to Islamic law." Punishments for those engaging in same-sex relationships in the absolute monarchy are brutal, such as being stoned to death.

The protest was made by Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir, who told the UN General Assembly that "mentioning sex in the text, to us, means exactly male and female. Mentioning family means consisting of a married man and woman,” AP reported.

He stated that Saudi Arabia had the right not to follow any agenda that runs "counter to Islamic law."
Well there you go. I wonder what Faisal Trad's panel's recommendations could be regarding the situation in Saudi Arabia and their obvious lack of any respect whatsoever for basic human rights or international law?

Well, I'm certain this will all play out perfectly fine.
