When a clean sheet is a death sentence

THIS is what we have gotten for all the lives lost and treasure spent.  In essence, all we have accomplished is to remove one evil and replace it with a worse one, ie: Islamic rule.  Remember folks this is the ISLAMIC Republic of Iraq and Sharia always takes priority over all else.

Iraq has now stepped back 1400 years in time.


When a clean sheet is a death sentence

By Rachel Raskin-Zrihen

It’s 2012 A.D., but you would not know that in Iraq, where women still regularly face court-ordered virginity tests the outcome of which can cost them their lives, according to news reports.

The tests are meant to prove the women were virgins until marriage, which can be a matter of life or death in the Middle East, where premarital sex by women is seen as dishonoring the family and sometimes leads to a male relative murdering the offending female.

Evidently, these medieval tortures are done in India, where they are still burning widows in some areas, and also in Turkey, Egypt and likely other countries where the virginal state of girls is considered their most important attribute, even before giving birth, cooking, cleaning and serving their husbands like slaves, which comes afterwards.

I guess in some places they’re misreading the calendar and think it’s 1012, and believe women aren’t fit to perform those functions unless virginal until marriage.

Don’t you just wish you were born a female in the Arab world?
