Iran’s new parliament has more women than clerics
. .. . one cannot say the same for either in the House of Saud, the abject worst human rights violator in the Middle East.
One of these is an enemy, one is not. Can you spot which is which?
In Saudi women cannot leave the home alone, nor can they drive, just two among myriad other human, and women's rights abuses. In fact, there is no republican governance, not even fictional in Saudi.
On the other hand, in Iran, women not only can hold office, they do in large numbers.
The sharpest irony in all of this is that Bush sought to bring democracy to the Middle East, and although he did plant the seed, it has yet to bear fruit. While Obama, accidentally acted with Iran, and succeeded.
