” A few weeks back, I wrote:

  At this point, Americans sigh wearily and shrug, “Afghanistan, the graveyard of empire,” or sneer, “If they want to live in a seventh-century s***hole, f*** ’em.” But neither assertion is true. Do five minutes’ googling, and you’ll find images from the Sixties and early Seventies of women in skirts above the knee listening to the latest Beatles releases in Kabul record stores.

  Dangerous Minds has now assembled a collection of these photographs – not just Kabul coeds and teenyboppers but scientific researchers, too – from the Seventies, Sixties and Fifties, and they’re well worth taking a look at, if only to understand the totality of our failure there.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Kerry Throws Freedom-Seeking Women Under The Bus

 

 

” It’s confirmed: The “F” in John. F. Kerry stands for “Feckless.” Women around the world no longer need to wonder whether America’s secretary of state will stand boldly with them in defense of their basic rights. He won’t.

On Monday, Kerry was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Anyone with a phone or an Internet connection inside and outside the country knows what’s been going on there. The kingdom has been rocked by women of all ages protesting the Muslim nation’s retrograde ban on female drivers. Over the past two weeks, the protesters and their supporters have taken to social media to pressure the oppressive sharia-enforcing regime. It is the only country in the world that won’t allow its women — 20 million of them — to obtain driver’s licenses.

. “I was wondering,” the journalist asked, “what your take is on women driving in Saudi Arabia?” Kerry’s take was … to take cover. “With respect to the issue of women driving here in Saudi Arabia,” he filibustered, “it’s no secret that in the United States of America we embrace equality for everybody, regardless of gender, race or any other qualification.” And then came the “but.” The crapweasel “but.”

But it’s up to Saudi Arabia to make its own decisions about its own social-structure choices and timing for whatever events. I know there’s a debate. We actually talked about this at lunch,” Kerry ducked. What he “actually talked about” he wouldn’t say. “There’s a healthy debate in Saudi Arabia about this issue, but I think that debate is best left to Saudi Arabia, the people engaged in it, all of whom know exactly where we in the United States of America stand on this issue.” “

 

   It’s “comforting” to know that the women of the world can expect exactly the same amount of loyalty and support from the present administration as can the rest of US allies around the globe … which is to say , none .

” Riyadh – A charity run by the family of an ex-king in Saudi Arabia has begun a campaign against domestic violence with a well designed advert showing a battered women dressed in a niqab. The text says ‘Some things can’t be covered.’

 
The King Khalid Foundation is a charity established by the family of the late King Khalid, who ruled the country from 1975 until his death in 1982. While the charity has various projects it finances and brings to fruition, this latest campaign against domestic abuse of women is not the first concerning this problem. Earlier, the foundation was also involved with promoting a Women and Child Abuse Prevention Law.”

“Obama’s Iftar Dinner”

  ” Obama’s politically correct spin on Islam grows more and more buffoonish. At the very moment he accuses Christians of waging a “war
on women,” he casts Islam as a benevolent religion to which the Sandra Flukes could take refuge.

  He used his remarks at this year’s Iftar dinner to praise Islam as a female-friendly religion. “Indeed, you know that the Koran teaches, ‘Be it man or woman, each of you is equal to the other,'” he said. For Obama, it is the Bible, not the Koran, that reeks of dangerous patriarchy. Obama has mocked the Book of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, and St. Paul’s letters, but he would never dare question a passage in the Koran, which he regards as a holy and blameless book in no need of politically correct revision.”
