to be Used in Move Against Islamic Iran
Authentic Islamic Women Ignored in Strategy Resembling attack on
If one wanted to honor a Muslim woman for helping women and children,
where would one look?
1. Hundreds of Muslim women were raped by Hindu fanatics in Gujarat,
Noble women in the Muslim community have shown great courage in bringing
some normalcy back to the shattered lives of these women. Any one of them
or the group of them could have been selected.
2. Hundreds of Muslim women have been assaulted and raped by Indian
occupation forces in
Even in that horrific situation there are Muslim women helping the victims
and their families. Unfortunately, from the viewpoint of the Nobel Prize
people, the best of these women wear the hijab and even the Niqab.
3. Muslim women in Somalia have suffered widespread destruction of their
country's infrastructure. However, there is no lack of great women here
who are helping to rehabilitate the victims. Some of these victims are
being helped to move to the
That would have been acceptable to the Nobel people. Unfortunately Somali
women wear their hijab even in the most stringent situations and the
leaders among them recite the
4. The Nobel Prize people could have looked at
WOMEN. Among the great Palestinian women are some secularists who do not
wear the hijab. Couldn't one of them have been selected? Unfortunately
just about all Palestinian women are speaking against
and that would have ruined the Nobel committee's agenda.
5. Some effort at peace could have been made in
if one of the struggling women of the Chechen nation had been selected.
Unfortunately Putin's stroll in Crawford ranch with
has ensured that the genocide against the people of Chechnia will continue
6. AFGHANISTAN and
were ignored for obvious reasons. The women in the ranks of the
would probably spit in the faces of the Nobel people for their silence in
all these years of attack by the U.S. As for the women in the puppet
Karzai and Chalabi cliques, they are such openly puppet-types that it
would have looked too clearly as a propaganda move.
7. Why couldn't a Muslim woman from AMERICA be selected? A woman in
Atlanta is working non-stop against domestic violence. A gift of 1.3
million would make a difference here. Obviously the Nobel Peace People
cannot honor an Islamic woman because that would accelerate the spread of
Islam in America.
WHY THEY COULDN'T FIND ANYONE ELSE IN IRAN?
The choice of Shirin Ebadi from Tehran, Iran is a major move against the
Islamic movement in Iran. It has to be looked at critically because since
1979 women in the Islamic movement in Iran have led the struggle for
greater rights for women. Imam Khomeini was an outstanding teacher of the
rights and respect which are to be given to women. MILLIONS of Iranian
women came out to support the revolution against the Shah. In the years
which followed, Iranian women who follow Islam have made steady gains for
their rights under the law.
Evidently the Nobel people do not consider any woman wearing the hijab as
worthy of recognition. They could not find EVEN ONE WOMAN from among the
MILLIONS in hijab who have served in Iran in the fields of social reform,
health, law and science.
If the Nobel people did not want to select anyone in the Line of the Imam,
they could have selected a dissident Islamic woman. Azam Taleghani, for
instance, was outstanding in her role to stop abuses inflicted on women
and to safeguard the rights of orphans.
Is it not strange that the only Iranian woman they could find is SHIRIN
EBADI who served the accursed tyrant, the Shah of Iran? She is an opponent
of the elected government in Tehran and that seems to be her only
Her selection means that the U.S. and the worldwide
machine will now have a tool to interfere in Iran's internal affairs.
Remember that the demonization of the Taliban was also carried out through
the false claim of Zionist sympathy for Afghan women who wear the chadri.
The same process is being carried out against Iran. Cultural imperialism
prepares the grounds for military imperialism.
It is true that Iran has deviated from the Line of the Imam and has
increasingly become a nationalist state which often uses sectarianism to
further its agenda. The focus on enmity with Iraq has been disastrous for
However, the Zionists know that a hard Islamic core is still holding Iran
together. Millions of women in black chadors stand with their men to
thwart the designs of imperialism. The Nobel Prize for a woman outside the
Islamic movement is meant to create a wedge into Iranian society. The
Zionists are working hard to bring the rich, corrupt and westernized
"north Tehran" elites back into power in the name of "freedom." For the
Zionists, hijab is a negation of "freedom" and when an Iranian newspaper
is stopped from ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) or Imam Ali, then
that is "censorship." [Hundreds of newspapers are published in Iran.]
Muslims need to realize that the Nobel prize is far from noble. It is a
political tool as was seen in the case of the "peace prize" given to Sadat
and Begin. Sadat had struck a huge blow at the integrity, unity and faith
Palestinian, Arab and Muslim peoples and he was hailed as a man of peace
(!) by the ignoble group in charge of the Nobel Prize for Peace.
