You signed this petition on May 19, 2011.
TY, Cher!

And have you heard about the al-jazeera journalist who was arrested & detained in Syria & then sent to Iran? Fortunately, she is now safe & back in Doha! Whew!

Al Jazeera journalist released from detention

Dorothy Parvaz, who disappeared on assignment in Syria 19 days ago, was sent back to Doha by Iranian authorities She reports in a video interview (not the text article) on the horrendous treatment meted out to young Syrians detained - she heard brutal beatings around the clock!

Looks like Al Jazeera journalists are distrusted by everyone on both sides -- Dorothy Parvaz says that the Syrians equated al Jazeera with Human Rights Watch -- in terms of causing them trouble. And we all remember the Al Jazeera journalist held for 6 yrs in Guantanamo simply because US military wanted to know about his sources & how the network functioned...

Noted. Are they being detained because they are women, because they are intellegent, because they stand up for & report what they should, or all of the above.

Women are just objects, just property in some countries. So, as a woman how can I be tolerant when it comes to certain religion? And why would I be? Whoever tolerates this agrees with their methods.

Women are made to fear the reprecussions of having a mind and body of their own by uneducated, violent, self righteous, determined bullies. Women in backward countries are used, abused, mocked, owned, raped, beaten and killed if they are not subservient. They need hlep from other nations to try to provide ways of improving the lives of women.

If every parent who ever raised and educated a daughter would sign this, it wouldn't take long to get the idea across. This is not acceptable treatment of our daughters.
