Liberals: Tolerance for Islamic Regimes?

I wonder why it is that the far-left liberals in places like Santa Monica and San Francisco, from Malibu to Manhattan, openly tolerate and extol the virtues of Islamic Regimes such as the Palestinians?

What the hell are these so-called liberals and progressives who defend human rights and the feminist viewpoint thinking?

From …

“Hamas arrests Palestinian woman for not wearing headscarf”

“Hamas security forces detained a Gazan journalist at a beach over the weekend because she was not wearing a headscarf. Asma al-Ghul, who writes for the Palestinian daily Al-Ayam, said she was at the beach near the Shati refugee camp with a mixed group of friends when men in civilian clothing asked her why she was not wearing a headscarf. When she asked them who they were, they showed her Hamas security forces identity cards. She said that when questioning her, the men accused her of ‘laughing out loud’ and walking around the beach without a male escort.

“They would have arrested her, Al-Ghul said, if she had not phoned the Hamas authorities. She was released after her Palestinian passport was confiscated. Al-Ghul also said the men threatened her life and that she cannot leave her home.”

“This is reportedly not the first attempt by Hamas security forces to enforce Islamic modesty rules. Hamas security forces are said to patrol the beach looking for lovers and to have confiscated alcohol at the Hamas checkpoint south of the Erez crossing. They also reportedly go to hotels catering to foreigners to check for unmarried couples.

Hamas has denied it enforces Islamic religious law, but it appears its security forces are trying to make the public behave traditionally, which includes women wearing the hijab, or headscarf. During Friday prayers at many mosques, imams call on parents not to allow their daughters to go to the beach without an adult male chaperone.”

Where is Jimmy Carter?

The same former President Jimmy Carter who flies around supervising elections to insure their fairness – often as a guest of the country’s corrupt leadership.

The same Jimmy Carter who has done more than any other single individual to aid the rise of IslamoFascism in the world.

The very same former President Jimmy Carter who often flaunts his 2002 “Nobel Peace Prize”  issued by the Norwegian Nobel Committee “for his decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development," while he never quits lecturing us about human rights violations.

And the very same Jimmy Carter who supports terrorist regimes with abominable human rights violations.

“Former President Jimmy Carter will urge the Obama administration to remove Hamas from the terrorist list, FOX News has learned.”

Carter, a chief defender of the U.S.-designated terror group, said Tuesday he will meet with officials in the Obama administration in two days to discuss his latest trip to the Middle East.” <Source>

The problem with the liberals is that they are isolated from the consequences of their action by their celebrity, money, power, position or ability to attract media attention …

Can anyone in Santa Monica or Malibu even conceive of a restrictive regime that would arrest anyone for not wearing a headscarf and walking around a beach in mixed company?

So why is there no outcry from the liberals, now named progressives because even they didn’t like what the liberal label implied? Where are the feminists? The human rights people?

Perhaps it is because they are too busy supporting another corrupt regime here in America to notice that there is another world: where human rights are mostly non-existent, torture is real torture involving mutilation and where death is a welcome relief -- and the sanctity of individual life means nothing to the religious leadership bent on controlling the world. A world in which there are no “moderates” as they all follow the same religious dictates which mandate mutilation and death for infidels and those whose religious observance has lapsed.

Before you liberals once again blame America for another problem, open the windows to your limousine, dismiss your security detail, step out and walk among the people.
