"Saudi women are denied many of the rights granted to women in Islam. Under the Saudi system, male guardians control decisions concerning a woman’s education, employment, travel, marriage, divorce, child care, legal proceedings and health care – basically, every aspect of her life. It is a system that renders half the country’s population helpless dependents."

And the other half very tired.

80 years ago Amelia Earhart an American female pilot had the freedom to embark upon a circumavigational flight of the globe.

There are still muslimahs who don't have permission to ride a bike, let alone drive a car or pilot a plane. There lives are totally dependent on their male guardians.

So what, there are many villages all over the world, that those people, living in them, have never.... sat in a car,still have outhouses, no indoor plumbing, some have to go to a tiny polluted creek for a drink of water.
.
Some others never....saw a pc or tv,
or lights and heat or A/C. Good golly, man, look at the Congo or the Aborigines. Headhunters exist, along with cannibalistic tribes
Some of the above live in the good ole US of A.
.
Some Eskimos live in igloos, while still some in the US sit in an alley covered with newspapers and a bottle of MD 20/20.
.
Need I say more?
Leave the Muslims alone and they will leave you alone, simple. Your team started this mess with their mind set on a New World Order. And failed to realize, Some people don't want it. And now you have to deal with the problems you have brought upon yourselves.
Learn respect and compassion then you'll see what is meant by the word .....

Oh and meanwhile you'll quite conveniently forget about Saddams persecution of the Marsh Arabs, of the Kurds and of the Shia sect.

You'll turn a blind eye and deaf ear to the atrocities committed against the Darfurians in Sudan.

You dont see the persecution of the Coptic Christians in Egypt or the kidnap, rape and forced conversion to islam in Pakistan.
Not to mention the acid attacks on girls in Bangladesh, the forced marriage of children in Afghanistan!

Hypocrite!
