When it comes to former enemies and disfunctional Muslim regimes, Barack Obama has a yellow streak a mile wide coloring his back. And his lackeys? Even worse it seems as U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice rather than opposing Iran’s new seat on the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) was out getting her hair done or nails or, who can know because our U.N. representative skipped the U.N. altogether rather than showing up to oppose Iran being seated on the important international women’s rights commission at the U.N.
Naming Hitler “Rabbi” would probably be less offensive than seating Iran on any panel dealing with women’s rights, if there is a more hostile regime on earth toward women than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s little insane asylum, Rajjpuut is unaware of it .
Item: Less than three weeks ago, Iranian cleric Ayatollah Kazem Sedighi of Tehran said that women’s immodest behavior and clothing was the cause of earthquakes. Good job, Kaze, Rajjpuut is very interested in what makes the earth move for men and women . . . .
Item: Women in Iran are stoned to death if their husband merely claims infidelity.
Item: Women can be arrested for sunbathing or sporting a tan.
Item: Accusations of homosexual behavior by women by their husband is grounds for execution. Male homosexuality gets flogging, and the homosexuality must be proved.
Item: Wearing of western style clothing by a woman is grounds for immediate arrest and imprisonment.
Item: 9-year old girls can be married off by their families.
Item: No matter if the husband in an arranged marriage is 60 years older than his girl-bride, she has no recourse if her father sells her off.
Item: Iranian Men who drink alcohol or gamble can be publically whipped; women doing the same thing are eligible for death by stoning.
Item: Men who even feel their wife is “uppity” can beat her as much as they wish. Much Islamic discussion in Iran is spent discussing the size and flexibility of the recommended rod used for such beating. Actually, Rajjpuut is NOT opposed to this one . . . . : )
Item: The Iranian dress code for women and policy of discouragement of women’s education is closely akin to the Taliban’s.
Item: Iran’s own women’s rights activists (while dodging stones?) wrote a letter to the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women declaring that placing Iran on the CSW would seriously set back the cause of women everywhere.
Item: Unmarried Iranian women caught having sex may be executed.
Item: Women expressing opposition to sharia (strict Islamic code of behavior and punishment as outlined in the Koran) law can be executed.
Item: An Iranian woman who offends her husband, for example by trying to stop his beating of her, and strikes him in the process can have her hand chopped off. It’s recommended that she repent after the mutilation . . . you think?
This hideous regime being nominated to any position of power or influence is utter infamy. The American delegation could have stopped the move in its tracks by merely raising an objection. Rajjpuut suggests that here, if ever there was one, is an opportunity to rail against the regime’s track record on women’s rights. Not a peep. So beginning in 2011, Iran will start help setting policy for women’s treatment around the world. NICE!!! Nice job, Mr. Obama!
Ya’ll live long, strong and ornery,
