Egypt Islamists want ‘family’ not women’s council

http://english.alarabiya.net/article...09/199563.html

"A women’s conference organized by the dominant Islamist bloc in the Egyptian parliament has called for a council for families to replace the existing National Council for Women, a state-owned daily reported on Friday.

The conference, held Thursday on International Women’s Day, also condemned the 1978 U.N. convention against gender discrimination saying it was “incompatible with the values of Islamic sharia” law, the Al-Ahram newspaper reported................."

Notice this bit - ".....also condemned the 1978 U.N. convention against gender discrimination saying it was “incompatible with the values of Islamic sharia”........"

Folks need to pull their heads out of their fourth point of contact.

Why? For too many it has been the most comfortable spot for it and thus the most used resting place.
