Soon and very soon Obama and Kerry will be denouncing these barbaric Muslim terrorists. just stand by...... it will be happening momentarily...... mighty words will be thundering from the righteous one.....just wait....be a bit patient....
The American news media have imposed a complete blackout on anything that lets the readers know what bearded savages are doing.
Such a peaceful religion...
There should be a Marine Expeditionary Unit on the ground.
The religion of peace strikes again.
The barbarians don’t want boys educated, and the idea of girls getting an education is totally repugnant to them.
Funny, NOW, which supposedly stands up for women will say nothing. If however the muslims were stopping these girls from killing their unborn babies....
that would be Nigerian marines, correct?
Some battles are not ours to fight
The parents of the girls and their outraged communities need to teach the muslim horn dogs a lesson, African style
The extremists want to provoke a reprisal from the Christians which will bring the fence-sitting Muslims into full jihad mode. They may get their wish.
Indeed, 234 kidnapped girls is at least 234 parents who should be fighting back.
And some battles are righteous. This is one of them. Not Afghanistan.
Iran Executing a Victim of Attempted Rape?

A Few days ago, the United Nations and various international human rights groups joined a growing call for the Islamic Republic of Iran to halt the execution of a woman scheduled for Monday.
Irans court has sentenced Reyhaneh Jabbari to death for the 2007 killing of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, who was a former employee of Irans Ministry of Intelligence and Security.
According to the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights Jabbari was acting in self-defense against Sarbandi, who attempted to rape her, and she never received a fair trial and due legal process.
According to testimony of reliable sources and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Sarbandi hired the 19-year-old Jabbari, an interior designer, to work in his office. While Sarbandi was attempting to sexually harass and rape Jabbari, a struggle began, and she stabbed him.
Therefore, Jabbari was sentenced to death for her action under the Islamic judiciary system of Iran. Why would a young professional woman be executed for defending herself against unwelcome actions from her superior, a sexual abuser?
The profound irony, and the peak of the Islamic Republics hypocrisy, became clear this week in a speech marking Womens Day, when Iranian president Hassan Rouhani made international headlines by condemning any form of sexual discrimination and advocating for equal opportunities and rights for women.
According to Fars News, while speaking at the National Forum on Women Shaping Economy and Culture in Tehran Rouhani pointed out, We will not accept the culture of sexual discrimination.
The liberal and mainstream media took these remarks as promoting and projecting a democratic and humane image of the Iranian president.
According to the 104-page UN report and UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in the Islamic Republic of Iran Ahmed Shaheed, the number of executions of women and the number of prisoners on death row has increased under President Rouhanis rule.
Beyond these sweet remarks, President Rouhani did not even scratch the surface of womens rights regarding the actual day-to-day discrimination that women face in the Islamic Republic. He solely commented on investing in electronic technology and marketing to lay the ground for womens scientific progress.
In other words, there was no tangible, legitimate, or nuanced explanation about how to address the institutionalized discrimination against women or how secure equality for the gender.
For example, he did not draw on practical solutions or indications of the ongoing gender inequality in terms of marriage and divorce, citizenship rights, nationality, international travel, employment, inheritance, child custody, among others.
Many Iranian women activists who live in the Islamic Republic, and several of those campaigners whom I have interviewed, shed light on different reality for women rights under Rouhanis presidency.
Many women voted for Rouhani due to his promises for social freedom, gender equality, and for being a moderate candidate. Nevertheless, as Sima, an Iranian teacher and womens rights activist who lives west of Tehran in the city of Karaj stated, President Rouhani has been successful in making a nuclear deal and resolving some of the tension regarding nuclear issues, but the reality is that womens conditions have not changed. The conditions are still the same as those of former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejads era.
In mid-2013, based on a ruling passed by the constitutional body in the Islamic Republic, women are banned to run in presidential elections. According to a recent University policy, women are secluded from entering by almost 78 percent. These are only few examples of recent laws being passed.
