Iranian Woman Who Protested Islamic Headscarf Gets 20-Year Sentence

Story is about 3 weeks old now, but it is such a sad thing to happen.

Colour me surprised, but I haven’t heard anything from (leftist) western feminists about this.

Funny that.

Iranian Woman Who Protested Islamic Headscarf Gets 20-Year Sentence


(AP) DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — An Iranian woman who removed her obligatory Islamic headscarf out of protest in December says she has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Shaparsk Shajarizadeh posted on her personal website that she had been jailed for “opposing the compulsory hijab” and “waving a white flag of peace in the street.”

There was no immediate comment from Iranian officials.

Police in Iran arrested 29 people in February for removing their headscarves as part of a campaign known as “White Wednesdays.” Nasrin Sotoudeh, a prominent human rights lawyer who represented Shajarizadeh and other women, was arrested last month.

Shajarizadeh, 42, was released on bail in late April. Her current whereabouts were unknown.

In Iran, women showing their hair in public face penalties ranging from a $25 fine to prison time.

    While leftist feminists vehemently express their anger at gender-based income inequality in Hollywood, they keep silent when women accused of adultery are stoned to death in Iran, or Somalian and Egyptian girls undergo FGM, or pre-teen brides ( female or male, no bar) are officially married to Pashtun pedophiles, etc. They stage high profile demonstrations against Muslim human rights activists such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Maryam Namazi. For them, sexual misconduct of a western official is a crime, while several rapes by an Oxford Islamist scholar is considered to be a plot by conspirators to defame Islam. This is ugly cultural relativism coupled with hypocrisy.

      Thanks for the comment, Kavan. Here in Melbourne, Australia we had (leftist) feminists celebrating about getting the “walking man” light (the green light that tells pedestrians they can cross the road) changed to a female silhouette!! Of course, these same women ignore all the serious problems you mentioned.

      In short: a mental illness or an agenda Kavan ?

      • Kavan Says:

        I see no mental illness or agenda in cultural relativism. It is an ethnocentric concept or perhaps philosophy dating back to the 18 century Europe notably Germany, which is based on cultural diversity and the claim that human perception and experience of the world are predestined by culture. In this concept, all cultures are considered to be equal but eternally separated from one another. A cultural relativist sees humans as members of different cultures, not individuals who can protest against their own values. Therefore, for him, human rights and freedom are neither universal nor inalienable nor absolute nor eternal.

        Culture of cultural relativism is parallel to gene of racism. While racists are generally commoners, cultural relativists are mainly rooted in academia. Muslim demagogues and academic charlatans and corrupt Islamic intelligentsias have effectively capitalized on this concept to propagate their regressive agendas. Unfortunately, the so called progressive universities, especially humanity departments, have become a bastion for Islamists. In short, cultural relativism, like racism, stands for demarcation within humanity. Cultural relativism eternally imprisons humans in fragmented cultural cells. Furthermore , political correctness has aggravated the situation.

          First my thanks for your answer , however i can see influence of the frankfurter school an the critical theory.
          Thinkers like Marcuse and ilk , who have influenced our education systems and this thinking has even settled in our political systems .
          Quote : Under the rule of a repressive whole, liberty can be made into a powerful instrument of domination.

          And what is the islam ?
          At full speed to a NWO with the use of a tool perfected trough the centuries the islam .
          Furthermore : That NWO thinking is not new it is an old concept

          The philosophy of Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, then chairman of the University of Berlin who advanced the theory that the masses must devote their absolute obedience to the State which he called the “final end” in the “march of God in the world”. In this way, Hegel theorised, “The State has the supreme right against the individual, whose supreme duty is to be a member of the State.” Hegelism is the foundation of the “New World Order” created through the process of “Constructive Chaos”.

          IF you have the will for it read also agenda 21 and agenda 30 of the UN .

          I ,am pretty convinced that the stage is set for the arriving of the NWO but there are some bumps in the road like the election of Trump in the USA and the growing resistance in Europe trough Political parties and a slow growing awareness under the people.
          And the road to a NWO is also funded by individuals like soros and his myriad of organization who financing this agenda .
          And than we have the world counsel of churches who are propagandizing an universal religion and kissing islamic feet in a pope fashion style .

          With all due respect I see an agenda , the little folks who are indoctrinated into this madness have no concept of the whole .
          I have seen this coming up the last 45 years in full force and talking /discussing this .
          quote: “To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family tradition, national patriotism, and religious dogmas.” “We have swallowed all manner of poisonous certainties fed us by our parents, our Sunday and day school teachers, our politicians, our priests….The reinterpretation and eventual eradication of the concept of right and wrong which has been the basis of child training, the substitution of intelligent and rational thinking for faith in the certainties of old people, these are the belated objectives …for charting the changes in human behavior.” Brock Chisholm, 1959 Humanist of the Year and former head of World Health Organization, in the February 1946 issue of Psychiatry

          February 9, 1950 — The Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee introduces Senate Concurrent Resolution 66 which begins:

          “Whereas, in order to achieve universal peace and justice, the present Charter of the United Nations should be changed to provide a true world government constitution.”

          The resolution was first introduced in the Senate on September 13, 1949 by Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho). Senator Alexander Wiley (R-Wisconsin) called it “a consummation devoutly to be wished for” and said, “I understand your proposition is either change the United Nations, or change or create, by a separate convention, a world order.” Senator Taylor later stated:

          “We would have to sacrifice considerable sovereignty to the world organization to enable them to levy taxes in their own right to support themselves.”

          1950 — In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, international financier James P Warburg said:

          “we shall have a world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”

          July 20, 1992 — Time magazine publishes The Birth of the Global Nation by Strobe Talbott, Rhodes Scholar, roommate of Bill Clinton at Oxford University, CFR Director, and Trilateralist, in which he writes:

          “All countries are basically social arrangements… No matter how permanent or even sacred they may seem at any one time, in fact they are all artificial and temporary… Perhaps national sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all… But it has taken the events in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world government.”

          There is a tom more of info to read .

          Quote : “We are not going to achieve a new world order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money.” — Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., in Foreign Affairs (July/August 1995)

          I must make a terrible conclusion , we are heading to a full fascistic technocratic world society under one ruling class or system .

            Thank you Peter for your reflection on world government and NWO. I think cultural relativism and NWO are two mutually exclusive concepts, but ironically both are of repressive nature and discourage individualism. My understanding is that centrifugal forces within international arena and also within nation-states are gaining momentum as a reaction to globalization. Eg, weakening EU and secessionist movements in many countries.

          • Peter Hofman Says:

            I do not think it are mutually exclusive concepts , these concepts are indoctrinated into our societies, left,right has no meaning for the forces who are directing us to their ultimate goal.

            Try to get a hand on the book From Susan George : the Lugano report a satirical “fiction” book what explain a lot how they try to change the meme.
            If you pay attention you can see the things explained in that book every day , even in Israel .
            Break down the fabric of our societies and have an easy pick to build a new order on the mess of the old one , and the people will be grateful for it because they do not understand how they are manipulated .
            So Hegelian dialectic .

            But i fear that there will be blood and a lot , outcome is uncertain .
            You can force something only for a sudden time on people, that is why they are trying and are successful (for now ) in changing the meme trough the educations systems , religious institutes and politics and of coarse counting on the average human laziness and no interests beyond sports and the mobile phone , the info is open and readable for every one , it is not a secret .

            See me as a passenger in a train sitting for a nice big window, watching with full interest the political, social landscape passing by,while talking to the other passengers, till we reached an endpoint , and perhaps at that end point i will jump of the train , if i have the years and health .

            PS: as you have noticed, English is not my native tongue .

    Generally speaking, I agree with the core of your idea. Techno-centric lifestyle,greed, and global dumbing down are the main problems facing humanity.
    PS: Your English is good. English is foreign to me too.
