Ayatollah Ali Khamenei Lectures On Treatment Of Women

Anyone else find this patently absurd?

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who rules over a nation where men are allowed to have four permanent wives and as many “temporary” wives as they like, declared in a recent lecture to Iranian students that Iran honors women, while the West abuses them.

The ayatollah said one indication of this is that women in Iran are forced to wear the hijab — clothing that covers much or all of a woman’s head, face and body — while women in the West are not forced to wear it.

In the West’s “sensationalism concerning women’s affairs, they blame us by saying: You have made hijab compulsory,” the ayatollah said in a January 3 lecture to a conference of Iranian students. “They themselves have made lack of hijab compulsory.”

We don’t really have to go down the road of how Islam really treats women, do we? Lashes for being raped, honor killings, stonings, you know, the whole litany of “honoring women.”

    Wifey #1 to service you… Wifey #2 for kitchen duties … Wifey #3 to vacuum the harem casbah … and Wifey #4 to watch the pets. We can walk the camel when we have time … Rotate schedules every week or month? All Wifey’s at once in …?

    Darth please check the websites of the organizations that you mentioned you will see that they have ALWAYS spoken up for the women oppressed in ALL countries.
    Teach the abuses that you mention are much more cultural than religious. The most populous muslim country Indonesia is also much more secular.
    Darth and Teach have you ever LIVED with muslims ? NOt visiting on an American island in a muslim country but actually lived there ?
    Which countries are the worst ? Well they are the countries that are America”s allies. How much did the Republicans demand they improve during 2000-2008 ?
    Darth why is it that you did not demand Bush (who certainly has a lot more juice than some women’s organization) do something about Saudi Arabia instead of just selling them more guns ?
    How about the abuse of women in Israel ? Did you know they must ride in the back of the bus ? http://www.reuters.com/article/politicsNews/idUSL1417084320080115
