National Park Service videos praise Islam's contributions to women's rights
The examiner ^ | 9/23/13 | /Howard-portnoy

Posted on 09/23/2013 11:11:34 AM PDT by barmag25

Come again? There are two elements in the title of this post that don’t compute. One is the phrase “Islam's contributions to women's rights.” We’ll return to this shortly. The second is the proposition “National Park Service produces videos praising Islam's contributions.” How exactly is it within the purview of the National Park Service to praise — or even condemn — a religion? At least you can rest easy in the knowledge that your tax dollars are paying for these videos

A woman’s right to be gang raped and stoned as the criminal?
Yeah, Islam is so progressive.

Rights like...
“You have the right to be beaten.”
“You have the right to obey muslim males, so that we won’t have to honor kill you.”
“You have the right to always cover up in public.”
“You have the right to stay in your home unless you have a male escort.”
“You have the right to be raped if you leave your home without a male escort or uncovered.”
“You have the right to be stoned to death if you accuse Muslim males of raping you.”
“You have the right to not drive...ever.”
“You have the right to remain ignorant, education being for the males.”

Park Service is silent about that “right” too.
And they’d ignore it while calling you a hater for pointing it out.

As if the absurdity of these claims wasn’t bad enough [ those rights not being present even in modern islam ] just look at the “related articles” under the quote on the examiner.

Here’s why this survey was done: it’s a way to eat up tax money collected from all of us. AND to spread that DC job wealth around to parasite relatives of government ‘workers’...

DC has the richest counties in the country. Hollywood doesn’t even make the top 10. You want to see real wealth? Go to DC and check out the blowhards...

They live large.

People think that Islam oppresses women and there’s no equality, but they’re wrong – there’s equity… 7th century A.D. Islam gave women the right to be involved in politics, the right to earn and keep her own money. Islam gave women the right to work outside of the home, Islam gave women the right to own property, Islam gave women the right to divorce, Islam gave women the right to choose who she marries. Islam gave women a whole bunch of rights ...
Actually, all of that is true. What's not mentioned that in in Islam's 11th century retreat to fundamentalism, it took all those rights away.

I went to the youtube channel. Listened to the first one, promoting Islam. There are 8 vids up. 3 Parts to the “Islamic Women’s Rights”, another one or two about Islam, one about African Americans and women’s rights, one about gays, one about Obama, and one “generic women’s rights”. What a bunch of steaming doo doo.

One of my favorite places to camp in Yellowstone is along the Snake River (Flagg Ranch Area). The NPS closed all of the campsites along the river (my bet - at greater expense than to keep them open). The White House is closed to tours, but the NPS can afford to make a polemic, deceptive video about Islam????

The WH also directed NASA to make Muslim outreach its new mission. Are we living in the twilight zone?.......or Obamaland?

I’d prefer the twilight zone.

National Park Service produced rap videos on Youtube:

http://www.youtube.com/user/NewBedfordYAP/videos

This is the NPS’ agenda.

NPS funds Latino research center:

http://www.nps.gov/nr/feature/hispanic/

NPS News page: Some of the articles are revealing in terms of the NPS’ priorities. You would think with sequestration they would redirect money toward repairs and maintenance.
