Yes, I'm an admirer of his work and I've seen that interview before.
well I am not sure you found the reason why I gave that tube link for you dear Ward_End., PLEASE WATCH AGAIN and let us see., whether you could tell me why I selected that link for you.
, As you know after all Richard Dawkins put out tons such tube interviews..
anyway going back I said
1). I would never have thought so. I've always imagined Iran would've ranked below Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Iraq when it came to this type of crime.
1). I would never have thought so. I've always imagined Iran would've ranked below Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Iraq when it came to this type of crime.I will answer and discuss those two point
2). I'm no historian. I wonder if such 'honour' crimes were prevalent in Christian Europe ie butchering your own wife or daughter, or is this a particularly Islamic cultural problem?
s but watch this interview of Dawkins dear Ward_Endhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAV_0s1c2V4
You are right Iran was far more egalitarian society with reference to women's rights in comparison to Afghanistan, Pakistan/Indian subcontinent
Saudi Arabia and Iraq.. but that changed the moment THAT ASS HOLE Ayatollah Khomeini overthrew Shah regime and converted Iran in to Islamic Republic of Iran 1979 ... Since then things have changed from bad to worse., So .. Yes Persia which was an egalitarian society from ancient times even before Islam where all individuals are born equal, and all members of society are said to have a right to equal opportunities.has changed for ever .. Funny every country moved out of shit .. Iran is going other way around ..2). I'm no historian. I wonder if such
'honour' DISHONOR crimes were prevalent in Christian Europe ie butchering your own wife or daughter, or is this a particularly Islamic cultural problem?
NO..No..nooooooo IT IS NOT ISLAMIC PROBLEM... but what I can say is every such problem that a society had before it became Islamic .. it imported such rituals/cultural stupid rules., it s there/ it was there in every society .. religious or other wise., But what happened in Islamic societies in recent times is (( specially from 1970s to present times))., WHERE AD ALL SOCIETIES/CULTURES MOVING FORWARD PROGRESSIVELY IN TIME., these fucking Imam/mullah Islam preaching ass holes having strong holds in Islamic society totally took away every progressive human thinking abilities so that they can collect and loot and booties keep that political power within themselves..
that is the problem.. but we are moving forward although not at the speed I like .. and thanks to internet ..
with best wishes
