Hey Jacqi –
A lot has been going on here and in Iran. I don’t have the time to break down each press release for you so I am going to just post them as is. I don’t know the outcome of yesterday’s worldwide Mission Free Iran protest. The Save Sakineh Campaign wants the message spread so pass their press releases along if you don’t want to go to their site. The Iranian govt has more than enough to worry about in Iran than to bother hacking into an international organization’s website. And if the US govt is wasting their time doing it then a lot more Sakineh’s are going to be stoned to death.
What is absolutely certain and what must happen immediately – Iran has to be taken off the UN Commission on the Status of Women.
Have you hear our Dear Leader state once publicly that stoning of women is barbaric and should be stopped immediately and that any country who allows it to happen should have no part of the UN. The name alone – United Nations – used to mean something. Now it is overrun with madness (Kaddafi) – politics (Iran given a position on the UN Commission on the Status of Women) and the largest lobbying group is made up of Muslim countries. Why? To make sure there is never a woman Secretary General.
There can be no peace or prosperity until all women and girls are afforded basic human rights.
Women’s Rights Are Human Rights, First Lady Hillary Clinton, ranked #35 Best Speeches of the 20th Century. Right up there with EMK, JFK, MLK, RFK, FDR, LBJ, Lou Gehrig, Geraldine Ferraro and Eleanor Roosevelt.
Wonder of Madame Secy Hilary Clinton would consider the job.
