Liberals ignore plight of muslim women while bashing Palin

http://www.gatewaypundit.com/: "Liberal Media Rips Palin-- Defends Violence Against Iranian Women
Iran arrested up to 150,000 women last year for breaking the strict dress code.This doesn't appear to bother the staff at the St. Petersburg Times.It's a sad day in America when propaganda writing fascists will deny the reality of daily life in Iran because of their hate for Sarah Palin.

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin released a speech she was planning on giving in New York last week at an anti-Ahmadinejad rally before Democrats forced Jewish groups to disinvite the Republican vice presidential candidate:
"It is said that the measure of a country is the treatment of its most vulnerable citizens. By that standard, the Iranian government is both oppressive and barbaric. Under President Ahmadinejad's rule, Iranian women are some of the most vulnerable citizens. If an Iranian woman shows too much hair in public, she risks being beaten or killed."

St. Petersburg Times dislikes Palin so much they wrote this: "Modesty has been a component of Islam since the Prophet Mohammed revealed purported advice on the subject from God in the seventh century. It has been interpreted differently among and within Muslim cultures around the world, including Iran. In 1936, Iran's largely secular ruler Reza Shah Pahlavi, intent on modernizing the country, banned the practice of wearing the veil, known in the Muslim world as hejab. That law was rescinded after Pahlavi was forced to relinquish power in 1941, but the policy of discouraging and disparaging hejab remained, said Ziba Mir-Hosseini, an Iranian anthropologist and a visiting professor at the New York University School of Law."

Liberals ONLY defend women when it is politically expedient for them to do so.
