A Matter of Priorities

Just when you thought the Muslim world had taken a step forward into (at least) the 20th century, you read something like this, and realize that they are still mired in the barbarity of the Middle Ages.

Where are the loud, angry international protests against a regime that hangs a 16 year old girl because a so-called "holy" man didn't like her spirit? Where is the sense of international outrage about a group of thugs who cloak themselves in the robes of religion to justify their thuggishness?

Clearly they have better things to do.

It's terrible what happens to women over there.

I have read about women stonings in muslim countries--a similar tragedy.

The women's movement is too busy supporting Democrats. First it was Clinton - which was a slap in the face to every woman he had harrassed. Now it's Kerry for whatever reason ?? and Edwards because he's "hot" (not my personal opinion and completely irrelevant to any voter with a brain.
