Every signature makes a difference. We have freed prisoners of conscience, stopped executions and called authorities to account for over 50 years.

This is barbaric but it's nothing compared to what those criminal psychopaths in ISIS would do.

I've signed already two previous petitions and signed this one too. What I fail to understand is that they go so much against what their holy book teaches: "There is no force in religion" ... I guess they read over that verse ...

What astonishes me is the fact that last time I was in Khartoum (2006) I was wearing my usual - trousers as well as knee long dresses and half sleeves in public and was never faced with any problem? What has changed? have they simply gone bunkers?

(sigh) an other country with no men in it , just religious freaks . cause if there was even one man to stand up to the religious crap they go by over there , this wouldn't be happening . but also this is to be expected when religion runs the country , the (men?) at least that's what they call them self ,obviously can't control their hormones . and so as in most countries where religion is involved the Women suffer .

Eleonora Oldani '' There is no force in religion '' By the way its '' There is no compulsion in religion '' Which was pre Medina verse and was abrogated once mo-ham-mad came into power, Muslims are stuck in 7th century mentality

David B, The persecution of women is more in the Islamic world than in the Western world , Now see

Surjit - thank you for the correction ... in my reading it's the same difference ;-) but you're correct(er). Frankly I don't care if it was pre Medina or after or before or after sunset; fact is that it's still valid according to almost all of the scholars and for me that's what counts. I quite obvious know a different breed (= normal) Muslims here in Egypt than you do in England - LOL. I'd exchange them if I were you! Seriously - only warped "Muslims" can come up with such decisions like the ones we gather signatures against.

As for your remark to David - what's happening right now in (Christian) America re women's right by the teabaggers is not really to be called a love affair IMO neither is the situation in (Christian) South America or in (Hindu) India were 1 Mio women get killed in 1 year just because they're women to be. It might carry different labels but if you dig a bit you'll find the truth. And again - whatever label is stuck on anti-women actions and laws ... the difference is the same: WE suffer the consequences all in the name of male dominance. Perfect world outside the Islamic one and sure worth to point fingers ... in doing so three always point back ...! Cheers!

Sad to be having to sign this in the year of 2015. How long does it take for common sense to rule? Oh well, keep chipping away, I guess! Thanks, Dogan.

Cave man laws need to be updated. They are cruel and sexist and any country using these sadistic laws should be ostracised.

You're right Maggie. Islamist tyrants like these are never going to change unless they get the boot.

What is not being mentioned is that this is a Muslim controlled country and that their victims are minority women deliberately targeted.
