Watch the video of women in 1979 against compulsory veiling. Ma EnghelaAb Nakardim, Ke be Aghab Bargardim, they shouted but alas...

Iran 1979, March 8 International Women's Day. "If you are against death by stoning! If you are against forced veiling! If you are against ... all » the prosecution and imprisonment of women! If you are against lashing a woman’s body! If you are against any form of patriarchy! If you are against the medieval laws of Iran’s Islamic Republic of Iran imposing inequality on women! – Join the great walk against anti-women laws in Iran’s Islamic Republic on 8 March 2007 in Holland!"
Watch the video:

Omid,

Stop funding CNN and FOX.

Cancel your cable subscription.
CNN produces these junk shows and news reports, because you are funding it.

Islam requires total submission to One God, including our sense of what is right and wrong to what God declared right and wrong. If you are not willing to accept that then you are not a muslim. It is not gauranteed that you will understand the wisdom behind each and every command and decree of God this is the test for muslims in this life...ergo, allah, the muslim god views his/her creation (human beins) as impotent, feeble-minded and untrustworthy creatures who need to be controlled like robots...Human rights in the context of Islamic Laws are irrelevant and non-existence...the only laws recognized by Islam are religious rights.
