TLF: Iranian Women Freeest in World! So Says Ahmanutjob

We is free, we is free!

In defiance of reports from the U.S. State Department and various human rights groups, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday that "the freest women in the world are the women in Iran."

"If you look at our women, they’re active in every level of society as researchers and social groups and universities, in parties, in the press, in the arts, in politics, in political associations," Ahmadinejad told reporters at the National Press Club. "They’re [among] the most active women in the world and they’re free."

"Human rights groups say what they want and we tell them that they’re wrong," Ahmadinejad said.

They are active in the stoning and hanging to death for adultry groups, flogging for for forced prostitution, and have had their demonstrations broken up violently by the security police.

Leyla Mafi received a flogging of 99 lashes in February before being released from prison into a women’s rehabilitation centre. Forced into prostitution as an eight-year-old and raped repeatedly, she was arrested in early 2004 and charged with "acts contrary to chastity" for which she was sentenced to flogging followed by death. Following international pressure, her death sentence was overturned.

Of course, if you are a member of Code Pink, you are treated well. Or so they said, as they never did file all those follow up reports that were promised.

Rather then continue to reinvent the wheel

But the Iranian penal code is discriminatory toward women, and violence and mistreatment of women is widely tolerated, according to a report released in March 2007 by the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor.

Women and men who are found guilty of adultery could be subject to stoning, according to the report, which also found that a "morality force" beats women in the street for "wearing makeup or clothing regarded as insufficiently modest."

Women who appear in public without the appropriate Islamic head coverings can be sentenced to fines or lashings, stated the report, which pointed out that "absent… a clear legal definition of appropriate hejab or punishment, women were at the mercy of the disciplinary forces or the judge."

It found evidence of "rampant" honor killings in western regions of Iran with little punishment for perpetrators.

See, they are free! Free to be abused, stoned, killed, lashed, jailed. Like, to be honest, most of the Iranian population. As Obi Wan said "You’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view."

Let’s not forget all that as he goes to speak at the United Nations today, where he will be certainly embraced by those who place countries such as Syria and Cuba on the Human Rights Commission.
