From Human Rights Watch:
Human Rights Watch takes no position on Sharia law per se...
REALLY? ON MLK Day--a day about equality-- let's think about this: WHO are the Human Rights Watch folks? well..... first from their web site:
Human Rights Watch is one of the world’s leading independent organizations dedicated to defending and protecting human rights. By focusing international attention where human rights are violated, we give voice to the oppressed and hold oppressors accountable for their crimes. Our rigorous, objective investigations and strategic, targeted advocacy build intense pressure for action and raise the cost of human rights abuse. For 30 years, Human Rights Watch has worked tenaciously to lay the legal and moral groundwork for deep-rooted change and has fought to bring greater justice and security to people around the world.
Human Rights Watch is dedicated to protecting the human rights of people around the world. We stand with victims and activists to prevent discrimination, to uphold political freedom, to protect people from inhumane conduct in wartime, and to bring offenders to justice. We investigate and expose human rights violations and hold abusers accountable. We challenge governments and those who hold power to end abusive practices and respect international human rights law. We enlist the public and the international community to support the cause of human rights for all.
And yet, they have no problem with Sharia Law, per se Shall we ask the cowards at HRW to read the definition of human rights? : Definition of HUMAN RIGHTS
: rights (as freedom from unlawful imprisonment, torture, and execution) regarded as belonging fundamentally to all persons. And now let's think about Sharia Law, which per se, [intrinsically} IS a misogynist law. What a bunch of cowards, willing to allow inequality under the law stand as NOT a human rights abuse (a man's word 4 times weighted that of a woman, e.g.) just so they can not piss off those intent on carrying out human rights abuses. Ladies, do this, NEVER send a thin dime to HRW until the denounce Sharia Law, per se! Let's think about this: HRW tell us that you refuse to denounce Jim Crow Law, per se. Never happen. Black men are one thing but black women or dark skinned arab women....that is all per se. fuck that!
