U.N. Says Afghan President Signs Law Legalizing Rape in Marriage
Barry Artiste Op/Ed
Funny, when I as a Canadian, write about another culture or their religious leanings of laws in a negative light as reported in the media, I get lambasted by what I perceive is by left leaning readers who comment to my stories, leaving me to believe yet again, lefty's are most likely unclued to the concept of right or wrong or decency for that matter.
Case in point, this story, amongst other stories such as stoning women, gay beheadings, suicide bombers bombing civilians. Now all of these happen in a Muslim and or Islamic Nation. One would think there would be millions of stories in the media with Muslim organizations, screaming bloody murder at these obvious atrocities against human life and decency and put a stop to it once and for all, but obviously do not! Now when I try and point out these atrocities, and that perhaps these cultures envision bringing such barbarities into the Canadian Cultural Mainstream, I am called a Racist, with a Big White Pointy Hat? There are so many media stories where Imams state, they wish Canada, Britain or any Western Country to be an Islamic state. Funny eh?
Yet, the same who brand me racist, not for one minute Poo Poo anything these Zealots say.
So again I direct you to yet again another story in which the Leftys of the world state, "Oh Barry you are Racist, cause this story like many others are a minor exception to the rule"! My Mind Boggling Response to their Ludicrious response is... "There certainly seems to be too many exceptions to these rules, and it looks like this exception is to become the Rule of Law in Afghanistan.
But then, Leftys will always accuse those with common sense and decency of being racist now, wont they?
The Canadian Government has responded with outrage over this proposed Law, and the President of Afghanistan has remained unresponsive to the Canadian Governments request for a response. Leaving many to believe, Mind your own Business, this is our way, our country,
In an unrelated story, the Minister of Immigration Jason Kenney stated he would like all newcomers to Canada to assimilate into the Canadian Culture! And I reported this story in my Op/Ed yesterday, and "Land O Goshen!" I get accused of being racist in my comments section on my story! Yep, Good Times, Just not for Afghani Women!
Perhaps Canada and the US and other countries should take a cue from those who feel we should mind our own business and not interfere with their countries affairs, and immediately pull our troops and financial aid out of the Middle East and let them exterminate each other.
Below is a MUST READ link to atrocities against women and children, because tradition is hard to break in Afghanistan.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai has backed a law that the United Nations Development Fund for Women claims legalizes rape within marriage and forbids women from leaving the house without permission, The Telegraph reported Tuesday.
According to the U.N. the law, which has not been released publicly, says women cannot seek work, education or doctor's appointments unless their husband approves.
The law also allegedly gives sole custody of children to fathers and grandfathers. Opponents of the law accuse Karzai of pandering to the Shia minority whose swing vote is crucial.
While the Afghanistan constitution guarantees equal rights for women, it says the Shia population can settle cases based on Shia law.
Afghanistan would not let the U.N. see a copy of the bill, and a Karzai spokesperson would not comment.
