* It must be the ‘glass-ceiling’ that is preventing these dames to get in on the action.
Not that anyone should be surprised by this, at least I know none of us are. This is a fantastic article from Fox News, basically outlining what we’ve been saying for years now, that feminists are a bunch of hypocritical half-wits who are nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Democratic party….

It took a teddy bear . . .
British schoolteacher Gillian Gibbons, an unimposing woman of 54, was found guilty of “inciting religious hatred” and sentenced to 15 days in jail and deportation by a court in Sudan’s Khartoum after allowing her 7-year-old students to name a teddy bear “Muhammad.”
In the meantime, Islamist fundamentalists have called for her execution, and her safety is in constant jeopardy. Demonstrations have increased, with crowds carrying machetes, shouting in part: “Execute her! Kill her, kill her by firing squad.”
She is under such threat, Sudanese authorities have moved her to a secret location to ensure her safety.
Apparently, naming a cuddly bear Muhammad insults the prophet, while mass-murdering homicide bombers named Muhammad don’t.
During the past 14 years at least, certainly since Usama bin Laden declared ‘war’ on Western civilization in 1993, we’ve all been exposed to the literal madness of Islamic fundamentalism. We’ve seen the curtain pulled back on how craven American leftists can be as well. Yes, it took a teddy bear to highlight more clearly than ever the psychosis of the enemy, and the failure of the feminist establishment.
There has been appropriate international outrage over the treatment of Gibbons, from virtually everyone except American “feminists.” Multiple Muslim groups in the U.K. have condemned the sentence. Even the popular little boy in Mrs. Gibbons’ class who suggested the name for the bear came to her defense, explaining that he named the bear after himself.
Yet, when asked by FOX News for a comment about the situation, a National Organization for Women spokeswoman said they were “not putting out a statement or taking a position.”
This is how depraved the American left has become. A little Muslim boy in Sudan shows more courage and conviction for a woman under fire than a bunch of women sitting in Washington, D.C., who preen themselves on being the premiere “advocates” for women.

* “Islam is not to blame”, sez Shiraz:
A few weeks ago Rod Liddle participated in a debate about whether Islam is good for London. His message, in a nutshell: I don’t have a problem with Muslims, I have a problem with Islam. I don’t share his views, though many do â€“ and I can see how they’ve got there.
* He doesn’t share these views, you see? Its not Nazism that is to blame, its….. what exactly? The Nazi’s? But no, they’re also not to blame. It must be the Gestapo then? But did they follow a different ideology from the Fuhrer? Which one is it, Shiraz?
* At last, he nails it:
And when people associate Islam with the kind of barbarism we see around the world, it’s not because Muslims have stayed quiet for too long â€“ but because we’ve failed to challenge and defeat the ideology which promotes it.
* Agreed. Now lets defeat the ideology, okay?
* Then, he denies it:
Another participant in the debate about the merits of Islam in London was Ed Husain. He explained that, unlike Rod Liddle, he didn’t have a problem with Islam, but with Muslims. I agree.
* He doesn’t have a problem with the ideology but ‘only with the people who follow it?’
Back to smoke and mirrors:
“…we’ll only have ourselves to blame when people conflate Islam with Islamism. And that’s something I take offence to. “
* So do we, Shiraz. We also take offence at being hoodwinked.
* Because there is no ‘Islamism’- there is no fundamentalist Islam, militant Islam, hijacked Islam or moderate Islam. There is only Islam. Ask any good Muslim, he’ll tell you….
Iftikhar Ahmad, of the London School of Islamaniacs, also claims that the demonstrators who called for her death are simply a response to Iraq and the dreaded Danish cartoons of blasphemy. Unreal, and they wonder why we
don’t trust them… want them gone…
