One Of The Reasons For The War.

Beside terrorism, the US battles for the freedom of women in the middle east. Women should not be killed for disrespecting a male member of their clan.

Women should not be beaten for expressing themselves.

Girl children should not be legalli tortured (90 lashes for a 13  ear old girl with a cell phone)

Women should not be covered from head to toe because of what?

Women should not be whipped and sentenced to jail when the victims of rape r themselves.

Woman need to be given world wide respect and be equal.

We need to end the legal slaver of women world wide.

Organized religion was invented by Man in order to control his fellow Man!

I see your point. I don't think that we use womens suffrage as much to justify the war as we do to encourage change. There are some very brave women who are risking their lives to promote freedom in some Muslim countries. They can't do it alone when they are under so much oppression.

There are not near as many draconian verses about women, and no where does it justify beating women. Yes the Bible is very patriarchal. People have evolved since then.I'm saying that the mistreatment of women is part of the present day Sharia law. It is unbelievable how badly women are actually treated in the countries where sharia is enforced strictly.

Proves once again that religious texts are written as men and dictated as God.

Tabari IX:113 "Allah permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to beat them, but not severely. If they abstain, they have the right to food and clothing. Treat women well for they are like domestic animals and they possess nothing themselves. Allah has made the enjoyment of their bodies lawful in his Qur'an." <br />
Tabari I:280 "Allah said, 'It is My obligation to make Eve bleed once every month as she made this tree bleed. I must also make Eve stupid, although I created her intelligent.' Because Allah afflicted Eve, all of the women of this world menstruate and are stupid."
