Sudan Charges British Teacher With Insulting Religion – FOX News.com
Sudan on Wednesday charged a British teacher with insulting religion and inciting hatred, a crime punishable by up to 40 lashes, six months in prison or a fine, after she named a class teddy bear “Muhammad.”
The charges come a day after a 7-year-old Sudanese boy said Gilliam Gibbons, 54, asked him as part of a school assignment what he wanted to call the stuffed animal and he said, ‘Muhammad,’ after his name.
A spokeswoman for the National Organization for Women said the situation “is definintely on the radar, and N.O.W. is not ignoring it.
But she added that the U.S.-based organization is “not putting out a statement or taking a position.”
The National Organization for Women will “not take a position” on the flogging of the British teacher in Sudan. NOT TAKE A POSITION?!? Does this mean they think there is some element of justice for Ms. Gibbons??
But folks, it isn’t only the deafening silence and indifference of the National Organization for Women.
Where is the Human Rights Campaign on these crimes against women? They were all over the Jena 6 case…. and never hesitate to take up an abortion fight. Or criticize a Christian leader at the drop of a hat. But they have consistently and deliberately ignored the threat to gays and women by Islamic terror around the world.
Nope, no statement from the Hypocrite Rights Campaign on these latest atrocities. Just good old “holiday shopping” for gay rights.
And where is Hillary Clinton? Michelle Obama? Barbara Boxer? Sheila Jackson-Lee? Barbara Streisand? Rosie O’Donnell? Do they not care about women of Arab descent being persecuted? Do they only care about leftist American women who can’t have abortions on demand?
Are they completely dumb, deaf and mute to the FACT that millions of women are oppressed under Sharia law around the world — yet they criticize their own nation, its President and its military that proactively LIBERATED 60 million women from oppressive regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq? Incredible.
These women and organizations are not in favor of womyn’s rights… they are in favor of their own political power and wealth.
