The rights of women always come last.

To be sure, there are Twitter storms about sexist men and media feeding frenzies whenever a public figure uses ‘inappropriate language’. But when a politician tries to campaign for the rights of women suffering under a brutally misogynistic clerical culture she isn’t cheered on but met with an embarrassed and hugely revealing silence.

Why does the U.N. condem Israel for the way they "treat" the Palestinians but never say a word about the way Saudi Arabia and other Muslim countries treat women? ;)

I've heard a LOT of people defend a Muslims right to follow Islam. I have NOT heard any American (or other civilized country), condone the way they treat their women. Some American "religious cults" are also abusive to women (by OUR society's rules). The Christian Bible is often abusive to women. How many Christians think a woman's place is in the home (or beneath them, one way or another!) It seems the "authors" of "Gods Word" chose to reject the story of Lilith, in favor of THEIR version of "Adam and Eve" ... well, one is arguably as legitimate as the other. I can't imagine how so many in the U.S. "fear" Sharia Law. It is NOT ALLOWED by our Constitution and Islamists cannot legally follow it in this country! We can't stop their practice in THEIR country. Actually, the cruel practices of the Bible can't be followed here either, but it's a bit harder to beat them in a court of our law.

Maybe it's Yogi Berra's fault, he said: "In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice, there is." (???) ;-)

Should the U.N. speak out against sharia law or the treatment of women ;)

Everybody should speak out on the treatment of women. I'm not saying ANY religion has the right to abuse women. I'm just saying we don't run other countries ... doesn't mean we have to agree with them.
