I don’t know what these women, I mean dressed-up slaves, are so upset about. Don’t they know that if a loyal, male follower of the Religion of Peace rapes them that he’s just doing Allah’s will? Who do they think they are picking-and-choosing what parts of Islam they want to follow? “Kill the infidels, but please don’t rape me and then stone me for adultery?”

Come on, women, get tough. Watch al-CNN tonight and see if the National Organization for Women is standing up for your so-called “rights.” I didn’t think so.

(OK, that was called satire for you Democrats out there. The protestors are Christians fighting the madness of Islam! These women are actually incredibly brave. Radical Islam is one sick, pre-historic, barbaric expression of hatred that is a cancer on this planet. The sooner it is eradicated, the better.)

Here’s the article: “Pakistan opposition MPs protest change to rape laws”. You won’t hear a peep out of any “feminists” in the West over this since they’re too busy foaming at the mouths with their rabid hatred of President Bush to care how women around the world are treated. Democrats are damned hypocrites. But I repeat myself.

ISLAMABAD (AFP) – Pakistani opposition lawmakers walked out of federal parliament in protest at government proposed amendments to Islamic rape laws.

Rights groups have been demanding the government repeal the current laws which place an almost impossible burden of proof on women and expose victims to charges of adultery.

Opposition MPs mostly from the hardline Islamic alliance Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal shouted slogans and tore up copies of the bill before walking out after Law Minister Wasi Zafar introduced the legislation to change the laws.

“Death to (President Pervez) Musharraf,” “Those who are friends of America are traitors” and “Allah is Great,” the politicians shouted.

“This bill is against Holy Koran and Shariah, we reject it and (will) try to block it in any possible manner,” said opposition leader Maulana Fazalur Rehman.

MPs of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto did not boycott proceedings.

The law minister said the “Women Protection Bill” would be referred to a select committee of parliament represented by all parliamentary parties.

Pakistan’s federal cabinet earlier this month decided to change the 27-year-old laws introduced by the late military dictator General Ziaul Haq who wanted to enforce a strict Islamic code in the South Asian country.

Under Islamic laws imposed by Haq in 1979, women must produce four adult Muslim male witnesses to prove an act of rape. Women who fail to prove rape can be jailed or even sentenced to death for adultery.

The Islamic legal system, known as the “Hadood Ordinances”, runs parallel to Pakistan’s British-influenced secular penal code.

Last month Musharraf, a key US ally, changed Pakistani law to allow women detained on charges of adultery and other minor crimes to be released on bail. Hundreds of women were later freed.
