Ron, what do you mean by “we don’t act like the Taliban here for the vast majority?” I don’t understand what you’re getting at with the other stuff about attacks against Muslims in the US either, or the rest of that paragraph, to be quite honest.

I will say, though that the whole “Tsarnaev doesn’t deserve any rights or a trial. We should just execute him” sounded very Taliban-esque to me.

Coz,

“HARD-WON PROGRESS AND A LONG ROAD AHEAD: WOMEN’S RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA” – Sanja Kelly

http://www.freedomhouse.org/sites/default/files/270.pdf

The study, of which I skimmed the first 12ish pages, indicates that the Mideast/North Africa region is the worst in the world in terms of women’s rights, but to say there is no progress being made is wrong.

“Although the study indicates that a substantial deficit in women’s rights persists in every country in the MENA region, the findings also include notable progress, particularly in terms of economic opportunities, educational attainment, and political participation” (1).

“The most significant achievement occurred in Kuwait, where women received the same political rights as men in 2005, enabling them to vote and run for office, and paving the way for the election of the country’s first female members of parliament in 2009. In Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the first women judges were appointed in 2006 and 2008, respectively”(2).

“In the UAE, eight women were appointed and one secured election to the 40-member Federal National Council (FNC), an advisory body to the hereditary rulers of the seven emirates. Previously, no women had served on the FNC, which until 2006 was fully appointed by the seven rulers. In other countries, such as Oman and Bahrain, the government has appointed an increasing number of women to unelected positions, including cabinet and diplomatic posts” (11).

Also, Saudi Arabia gave women voting rights in 2011.

Edit: Yeah, the whole Arab Spring really changed the landscape, and It'll be real interesting to see what that report says, should they do another edition in 2015.

Ron,

You're asking people to read the Koran, but have you actually read the book or haven't you?

This is the mistake. I do not need to understand Islamic faith or read a f*#king book. THEY need to bring their culture into the 21st century!

That does not mean they to have welcome degeneracy or immorality, but they need a reformation.

Bluering, the "read the Quaran" remark was made to Ron, in direct response to his posting the following:
Now,, as for your Yahoo.com answer to true muslim, all i will suggest is READING the Qua-ran.. Then get back to me.


He told ME to read the book, and someone asked him if HE had.


But as for "them needing" to do anything - who says? It is major horse crap to suggest that all the upset over middle eastern policy is due to their human rights issues, because of the way they treat women. This country doesn't give a rat's ass about how women in other countries are treated. The problem is - we want their resources, and we want them at bargain rates. And they don't want to make a deal.

Good post Happiegrrrl,

Lost in the emotion posted here of the value of life to individuals, is the only thing that matters to holders of power is natural resources and who controls them.

The criminal Kissinger once imagined remedy for the majority of people on the planet as "thinning out the useless eaters"

Fun, huh ?

Only as long as you don't fall from grace and ask for help.


The goal has always been about becoming rich.

I gotta call BS here. We did NOt get their resources, we sat back and let the Chinese get all the f*#king contracts!

And why did we help overthrow Mubarak in Egypt, or Ghaddafi in Libya?

Oil? Resources? Crock of f*#king shit! Islam is a poison. And it's spreading.

What is eternally fascinating to me is "enightened, feminists" defending Islam. And even converting!

They bash Western culture, saying men are sexist, misoginyst, but they embrace women's slavery in a veil.

What's also disappointing is that more women here don't CONDEMN sharia law and that treatment of women.

You silence is deafeneing!

Ah yes, another f*#king "intellectual" who supposes we should sit and wait and see how many chix get raped or forced into clitorectomies. Let's wait and evaluate that. Real f*#king smart!

What is needed is us telling them to f*#k off entirely, get out. Or do some real intervention.

I say get out. Let them kill each other and rape the women. Then you liberals will want a war.

Sorry, that's the way it will be. Ever seen what they do to girls? Not pretty.

I was talking to my climbing bro today and evidenced my "I Hate People" thread.

People are stupid. I cannot tolerate this sh#t. We ran into 1 group that was cool. Nice people. 2 other groups were f*#king lame, almost had to tell a c#&% to go f*#k herself.

She was priceless! I was this......close!

JGhedge, this chick was a bitch! Me and my bro were delivering beta up to flaiging climbers, and she snivelled, "That's not proper etiquette"

We were trying to help them out! And nobody said we don't want beta.

You had to be there. Class-A Bitch!

Fair question. Dunno when he started. I assume around the time he was yelling unwanted climbing beta at strangers.

3 more arrested in the Boston bombings.. GLAD they were able to get SOME info before he was given rights undeserved.

from CNN.com...

The Kazakh students face charges of making false statements to investigators and conspiracy to obstruct justice, according to a federal law enforcement source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

Suspects disposed of backpacks, fireworks from dorm room, source says.



This is just a precursor. These dopes will be spending 20+ in the big house for obstruction of a terrorism investigation. Glad they will never get laid by choice.
