    The right of non-white, non-Judeo-Christians to oppress who they wish to oppress, be that women, gays, racial minorities, or people practicing different religions, needs to be respected. It's their culture, and all cultures are deserving of our respect. Except when said cultures are run by white Christians or Jews. Then fuck 'em.

    yet, no one ever mentions this crap. All you ever hear about is the Palestinians... this and that.
    I do feel bad for the Palestinians but, the Muslims need to get their crap together

    Until We Are Free: The Shirin Ebadi Story
    The tale of a single woman who took on the Islamic Republic, paid a heavy price for it, and survived.

    Shirin Ebadi, a 2003 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. A native Iranian Muslim and proud of it, Mrs. Shirin Ebadi documented the cruelty of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In her book, Ebadi provides moving descriptions and clear evidence of the repressive nature of the Iranian regime. What emerges is a clear picture of a Stalinist-like regime absent the Soviet Gulags. The regime's Intelligence Ministry shuts down all criticism of the regime, by arrests, torture and murder. There is no free press in the Islamic Republic of Iran, no free speech, and every facet of free life is controlled and repressed by the Ayatollahs, through their praetorian guards -- the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), and the Basij Resistance Force, a voluntary paramilitary organization operating under the IRGC. It is an auxiliary force with multiple duties, including internal security, law enforcement, special religious and political events, and morals policing.

    Removed from her judgeship by the Islamic Republic, Ebadi became a civil rights lawyer but soon found her attempts to defend the innocent and voiceless people being blocked by the regime’s extensive apparatus and corrupt officials. Ebadi writes: “On several occasions I had trouble simply trying to review a file at the court-house. The clerk, upon realizing that I wasn’t going to ‘tip’ him for retrieving the file, would say ‘Sorry the file is missing. Come back tomorrow.’ I would go back the next day, and he would say, ‘Sorry, I haven’t had a chance to reach for your file…” Justice in the Ayatollahs Iran, Ebadi concluded, is “bought, not fought for or deliberated.”

    Ebadi pointed out that criminal law under the Islamic Republic was based on a 7th Century reading of Sharia Islamic law. She related a case of an 11-year-old girl named Leila. While picking wildflowers outside her village, three men snuck up and raped her, beating her repeatedly on the head, then threw her to her death over a cliff. The local police arrested the men, and they were found guilty. But, because Islamic law values the life of a man convicted of murder and rape more than a girl raped and murdered, Leila’s family was held responsible for paying for their executions. Fighting against the regime’s discriminatory policies toward women, Ebadi wrote an article that described how the criminal code around blood money holds that “if a man suffers an injury to his testicles, he receives compensation equal to a woman’s life.”

    ...

    In her epilogue, Shirin Ebadi remarks that, “those of us with long experience of this government know it too intimately to imagine that everything brutal and illiberal about the Islamic Republic will transform overnight.” This assertion is reaffirmed by the increased belligerence of the Supreme Leader and the IRGC.

    Until We Are Free is an honest and moving tale about Iran under the rule of the Islamic Republic. Shirin Ebadi’s story is a testament to the courage of a single woman who took on the Islamic Republic, paid a heavy price for it, and survived.
