Infidel Babe of the Week

One Nazanin for Another

National Review On Line

“Nazanin Afshin-Jam is not just another pretty face. This former Miss World Canada — 2003 runner-up to the Miss World pageant — who will have her first album out this summer, has much more on her mind than her music and her cosmetics bag. Nazanin is a native of Iran. She recently heard about a young woman — with whom she shares both a nativeland and a name — who has been sentenced to death in Iran for killing a man in self-defense when she and her niece were being assaulted (the men were trying to rape them). Nazanin has since adopted the cause of her namesake”

I doubt Amnesty will replace Guantanamo with Nazanin even for a short while when Nazanin doesn’t generate half as much money. But I can’t currently think of any other champion. Or one more unlikely. Forget the feminists on the precious left, they’re too busy bigging up Islam in the name of multi culturalism. If the magnificent Ayaan Hirshi cant get through on a general level somehow i dont think a former Miss World will do anything but raise an eyebrow here.

Nazanin, Miss Canada, represents the antithesis of everything Islam detests. Celebrating female form and beauty via Miss World is therefore ironically all the more appropriate.

****From last Sundays
Drinking From Home this story needs a lot more publicity (why isnt it major news?)

"A British woman gang-raped by six Arab men is facing a new ordeal - being put on trial herself for having sex with her attackers.

The victim, a young air stewardess, was abducted and raped by the men in the tourist destination of Dubai.

But in a horrific legal twist, the victim is now facing prosecution because it is illegal to have sex with an Arab outside marriage under strict Sharia Law".

Good for Nazanin Afshin-Jam for at least trying to do something or highlight the non-existent rights of the women in Iran.

I didn't really have any plans of going to Dubai on holiday. And Dubai is really pushing to get the tourists coming but this just hurts their case. And probably, that is a very good thing.

But the Foreign Office needs to help this poor woman getting out of the country and back to the UK.

Bloody appalling about that woman. I mean, you'd assume that a religion ought to be built upon pillars of justice and decency, so it just shows the sheer scale of how badly warped Shahira law truly is. It's frightening because you'd think that the only people who would call for the victim of rape to be on trial would be no more than a fanatical minority, ridiculed by the mainstream political system. To think that this is actually mainstream legal thinking in Dubai is horrifying.

Frankly, I want to emigrate to the USA sometimes, because it seems to be the only country that knows which side it's on, and what the stakes are.

The US did bugger all regards the cartoon issue which affects a fundamental free speech right *written* *into* *their* *own* *constitution*. If ive seen anything thanks to the blogosphere over the past year its that the US has exactly the same problem as us.

What happens here in terms of how we address the issues matters to the US. WE need to address it. Europe is where its at. I mean historically in terms of the US being the modern embodiment/product of centuries of European evolvement. Deep issue that needs seperate post!

I think Dubai will act quickly to sort this out if it becomes a BIG PUBLICISED ISSUE. They have too much at stake to allow stupid sharia law to be used against a westener in such an appauling manner. It will affect tourism. Please cross post. We only have blogs to make it an issue. The press dont care.

btw Tom still somewhat OT re this post - i think im feeling slightly fired up having just come back from a full afternoon of discussion at the follow up meeting to the March for Free Expression. We discussed how to go about setting up a proper campaign. Something like the Enlightenment/free speech was born out of whispered conversations in Europe as a challenge to the issues of the day - including religious domination. Our ability to challenge some major issues (criticize Islam for example) depends on this continued free speech. Ive had to 'join the left' to be able to DO something. Here in London. All of us especially those on the left highlighted the failure of multi cultural policies and PC madness as some of the reasons we are in this mess - where in 2006 we are meeting up to save free speech. It was very inspiring and im very pleased to see people on the left waking up, aware of whats at stake. And disappointed in the right for the lack of meaningful action.

The right don't seem to want to do anything these days and languish in disarray mouthing every pronouncement by the government. I suspect in the belief that it would be unpatriotic to be critical at a time of war but seeing as we are now engaged in endless protracted counter guerrilla warfare I guess that's the last we'll see of dissent from the right then. In all honesty I fear its too late already.

They're not sure how to regain a position at the moment and simply jossle and posture for votes. Chasing the green vote at the moment.. Its a big old transitional time for us politically - & Europe


Look at the BNP for example. Le Pen is still third after Sarko and Seg in France in the latest polls.

& You're right about this new type of warfare. Noone here or the US knows how to deal with it.
