Why is it considered to be permissible in 2013 for non-Democracies to take part in the UN and to be on the security councils.

Saudi Arabia does not even allow women to drive or vote. Jordan is an autocratic nation too. These nations should be shunned, nor rewarded with positions on the security council.
