"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Female "Maids" uh, er *SLAVES* in Arab Countries Are Killing Themselves in Record Numbers

Amazingly, CNN is reporting it! (Hmmm.... Aren't they afraid of being labelled "islamophobic?? Wow! This *is* news!)

From the article:

"What about the things we don't know? These suicides are just the tip of the iceberg of the mistreatment of these women....

In August 2008 HRW reported that more than one domestic worker was dying each week, either from suicide or failed escapes from abusive employers."


"The abuse faced by migrant domestic workers is a common problem throughout the Arab Middle East, both because of generally poor labor regulation and also cultural prejudice.


The mistreatment of these women and the absence of any government protection is not just in Lebanon -- it's in all the Arab countries..."

Ya don't say, CNN. Ya don't say.....
