Saudi ambassador gives bizarre answer to illegal Yemen cluster bombing question: 'It's like asking if you’ll stop beating your wife’

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/saudi-arabia-yemen-cluster-bombs-question-ambassador-beating-wife-answer-reply-a7396926.html

The reason he gave that example was because either answer to the question 'will you stop beating your wife' makes the person answering the question look vicious.

So in his eyes any answer he gives to the cluster bombing question will make Saudi look bad.

His problem is that the Saudi use of cluster weapons is well-documented.

To continue his analogy It's as if the person being asked whether he'll stop beating his wife has been found with a stick and the wife has marks from that stick all over her.

    • ^ That is what I was getting at, brother. The way the OP described his  sister sounds like that situation. It is more wajib and therefore more responsibility on the parents than it is on the brother, they have more rights over their daughter than the OP has over his sister. I wasn't trying to say that we should ignore enjoining good and forbidding evil; It may very well be that the parents are very aware of the situation, more so than the OP and have a solution.
