A Giant Step for Worldwide Women's Rights

Well, look what came across the wires :


The Grand Mufti in the United Arab Emirates issued a fatwa (religious edict) permitting the performance of divorce through an SMS message through cell phones. He said divorce through this modern facility does not differ from a divorce written on paper.

There was one provision - the sender of the message must be the husband.

This is yet another sad demonstration of how women's rights are being upheld in predominately muslim countries. All the man has to do to divorce his wife is to tell her three times "You are Divorced!" And that's it! Now he does not even have to look her in the eye to do the dirty deed. No lawyers. No alimony. No child support (the kids go right to dad). No recourse. So, put on the burkha and be a good little wifey and I will beat you with a rod only gently (snark).

When will the rest of the world, and especially feminists, wake up to this and other wanton abuses of women's rights!!!
