From the Washington Post:
KISMAYO, Somalia -- Men in machine gun-mounted trucks Tuesday quickly dispersed hundreds of women protesting radical Islamic fighters who have taken over this strategic port town and much of the rest of southern Somalia.
At least 20 women were arrested, according to relatives of the demonstrators who spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared reprisals. The trucks carrying the men were flying the black flags associated with Islamic extremism.
You can read the rest. But let's suffice it to say that before anyone condemns America for violations of civil liberties, they should really do some in-depth reading on how radical Islam treats dissension from the rigid dogma that seeks to oppress, and control. Even more telling is when those that are expressing the dissent, are women. Twenty women arrested in this case, can only mean something bad will happen to them. I would not be at all surprised to learn, there have already been repeated rapes and beatings.
Feminists are quick to demonize and villify certain people, certain policies, and certain ideologies for things that are marginally valid, at best. They certainly made some noise over the Duke rape case. But they are not inclined to criticize Islamic fundamentalism's downgrading of women in that society. They are inexplicably silent when the topic turns to the humiliation and the mistreatment of women, by people that given the chance would cut their heads off.
I don't know about you, but I find that a prime example of hypocrisy. If you are going to stand up for women, stand up for all women. I firmly believe, there are many women that are tired of seeing their children killed at then hands of these brutal thugs; and they are equally sick and tired of those same thugs trying to win over their sons/daughters to the cause of jihad, by teaching hate and war as a religious/political doctrine.
So, Rosie, you fine champion of women's rights and other noble social causes, you. Tell us all just how radical Christianity is as (or more) dangerous as (than) radical Islam, once again. And say it, with a straight face.
