No need to ask but every reason to shout it out.

Where are the women in the West screaming about the treatment of Muslim women? Why no demonstrations across the world? Why the deafening silence?

Why the continuous whimmitude?

Definitely!!!

"Where are the women in the West screaming about the treatment of Muslim women? Why no demonstrations across the world? Why the deafening silence?"

I can't explain this to myself either.
Especially not in relation to "honour" killings.

As for hijabs/burkas etc., maybe some buy the claims of some Muslim women who have been brainwashed to say that they are "happy" (?!) about wearing them and that is their religious "right".
Again, tragically this is just one aspect of the systematic mysoginistic repression of women in Islam.

I look at ideologues and see every time Dostoyeski's Father Karamazov, a drunken, venal, slimy creature who yells out: "I love humanity; it's people I can stand."

On the Left, race trumps gender, and ideology trumps the rights of women. The smug hypocracy maddens me. Not even all the moreso because Islam is not a race. Just because ideology is sickening in itself. When a Pakistani cuts the throats of his three daughter because he feels that his honor is impunged, it's not a racial issue, it's simply murder backed up by Islam and apologized for on so-called racial grounds.

Where's Xena? Somebody's got to set this right.

Dag, after i left our blue scarf meeting, i saw a poster for a women's day rally, whose theme was "against war". It's anti-AMericanism that trumps women's rights. They'd rather not have to look at Bush than have to look at women as garbage.
