Women's Groups and Sharia

Jancan tells a story about a 17 year-old girl in Iran who, while defending herself and her niece from rapists, inadvertently killed one of the attackers. The girl is to be hanged for defending herself.

Jancan writes:
I have emailed the details to Code Pink and NOW among other woman's groups concerned with woman's rights. But it seems the only rights they're worried about is the right to murder a child in the womb and bringing about the collapse of our society by supporting terrorist rights in this country.
...This is what happens everyday in the muslim world according to islamic law a woman's testimony is only worth half that of a mans. This is sharia and what we'll all be ruled by if the islamic community has their way. Why aren't women everywhere speaking out for this victim of true oppression?

Most scary to me is that this travesty is not the work of some rogue terrorist group, but rather by a court in a supposed civilized country. These evil people need to be watched and exposed.

The liberal women's groups reveal their true nature and sentiments when they fail to support every effort to keep the misogynistic Islamic world in check.

Chris, I was having a hard time finding something to get passionate about in my blog. Thanks for providing me with something. I linked to this post in mine and gave some more commentary on the subject. Good post.
