A War Against Women exists…in Egypt

Posted by PITHOCRATES - December 8th, 2012

Week in Review

The Left unleashed a war against Republicans by claiming they were waging a war against women.  They shouted from the rooftops the evil that would befall women should Republicans get elected.  Scaring women with the specter of having to pay for their own birth control.  And paying for their own abortions.  Scaring a lot of women with the fear that should Republicans get elected they would force women into marriages against their will.  Raising a family against their will.  Cooking, cleaning and having sex with husbands against their will.  So women voted for President Obama.  To keep their birth control and their abortions.  So they wouldn’t ever have to get married.  So they could have happy fulfilling careers.  Instead of a loving family.  So they can die alone some day.

So this was the silly war the Republicans were waging against women.  It’s a pity the Left doesn’t speak out against a real war on women (see ‘Men don’t have to worry about being caught’: Sex mobs target Egypt’s women by Charlene Gubash posted 12/4/2012 on Workd News).

In the post-Mubarak era, activists and protesters have reported many particularly violent assaults on women. Some experts allege the government and security officials are failing to take the problem seriously. More than 700 claims of harassment were filed across Egypt over the four-day Id al-Adha holiday in late October.

“It is not a country of law, not a state of law anymore. It has given men a chance to harass women without being accused,” said Afaf Marie, director of the Egyptian Association for Community Participation and Enhancement, an NGO.

Some activists fear that women’s rights will suffer under the rule of President Mohammed Morsi, who is an Islamist.

Government inaction has allowed the problem to spiral out of control, Heba Morayef, director of Human Rights Watch for the Middle East and North Africa, told NBC News. Police no longer inspire fear as they did before the revolution. In addition, locals say it appears there are fewer police on the increasingly lawless streets — and often none in Tahrir Square.

“The state is failing to respond,” she said. “Men don’t have to worry about being caught.”

Interestingly, President Obama helped bring President Mohammed Morsi to power.  By telling President Hosni Mubarak that he had to step down from power.  When there was no organized opposition save the Muslim Brotherhood.  Who said they would not try to seize power.  Who the American Left said they would not seize power.  That it wouldn’t be another Iran.  But in the resulting power vacuum left with the fall of Mubarak the Muslim Brotherhood stepped into that vacuum.  And now their man, Mohammed Morsi, an Islamist, is now President of Egypt.

And any women who dare to leave their homes alone are being sexually assaulted.  As the Muslim Brotherhood want women in Egypt to be like women in Iran.  Oppressed and subservient.  And everything the Left accused the Republicans of wanting to do with women they’re actually doing in Egypt.  And worse.  Including sexual harassment and rape in public.  But where is the American Left?  Keeping their eyes on those rascally Republicans.  While their sisters suffer unspeakable cruelties in Egypt.  Suffering in large part due to the actions of President Obama and his misguided Mideast policies.  Who helped to make Egypt a less safe place for women.  By telling Mubarak he had to go.
