Actress in critical condition after acid attack in Pakistan - CNN.com

Pakistani actress injured in acid attack - Indian Express

"Bushra's brother Pervez Khan lodged a complaint with the police against film producer Shaukat Khan was behind the attack as the actress had turned down his marriage proposal.

Acid attacks on women, especially by men they have spurned, are common across Pakistan despite the amendment of a law to increase the punishment for such assaults."

Not sure why they are still considered men. Laws don't stop people, you need societal pressure.

Until women are treated as equal this will continue. Same with the rape travesty.

Re: All things Middle East related

And it doesn't help when religion supports and advocates for ugly practices:

'Circumcision controls women's sex common sense' - Sheikh Yussef al-Badri

Female genital mutilation was made illegal in Egypt in 2008 but is still very widely practiced. Some estimates suggest over 75% of women, Muslim and Christian, still have had the procedure in some areas of the country.

Debate on the subject has re-opened after the recent death of a 13-year-old girl while having the operation. Studies have also documented cases of serious health and psychological complications.

Sheikh Yussef al-Badri is one of Egypt's biggest advocates for what he refers to as female circumcision, and has petitioned the country's courts to make it legal again.

He told Aleem Maqbool that it removed a woman's "need for man".


Apparently men can't be trusted to control themselves.

The encouraging thing in Egypt is the youth there are not bout this Muslim Brotherhood life. They are rallying to say no to a conservative islamic state. Gotta give them props

Egypt

Clashes have broken out in the Egyptian city of Alexandria between anti- and pro-government supporters that have left at least one dead and more than 80 wounded, according to the state news agency MENA.
The country's interior ministry confirmed on Friday that the man was a US citizen and died from a stab wound to the chest while taking pictures of the clashes.
Some anti-government protesters set fire to the local headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party in the Sidi Gaber area of the city.
Violence also broke out in other parts of the country with reports of attacks on Muslim Brotherhood offices in several cities and governorates, including Gharbiya, Daqahliyah and Kafr el-Sheikh.
Earlier, several thousand protesters marched along the Alexandria's seafront complaining mainly about economic stagnation.
"There are no services, we can't find diesel or gasoline. We elected [President Mohamed] Morsi, but this is enough," said 42-year-old accountant Mohamed Abdel Latif.

You know it's bad when an accountant gets rioty.

Re: All things Middle East related

Now Morsi is equally unliked, but removing him power could be seen a major step backwards for the revolution. After all, Morsi — as he is quick to point out — was democratically elected. If he can be forced out by violent protests or military order, then what kind of democracy does Egypt really have? The people want him gone, but are they willing to do so at the cost of giving power back to a military that can order a president around? The world now waits for his answer.

^^^i found this section of an article fairly enlightening.

Re: All things Middle East related

Morsi is a Moslem Brotherhood stooge. He should never have been elected.

Democracy isn't compatible with islam.

You're talking about the same group that gave Mr. Obama a prize, right? Must be worth having.

Yes, it does, and for you to state otherwise shows an infantile grasp of the situation or a devious approach to truth of the matter. Which is it?

Examining the facts and responding to them, sure. Shouldn't we call out the Palestinians aggressors also, or have you already decided they get a clean bill of health?

Re: All things Middle East related

They sure love laser pointers over there eh?

I'm never sure if it's a Pink Floyd show or just a protest.
