Iraqi Protest "Babes?"

[Media Source*]

(Cross Posted on Blogger News)

(Iraq The Model) This was the headline in the announcement that called for today's women protest in Baghdad.

In spite of the heat and the dust that's covering Baghdad for the 2nd day, more than a hundred Iraqi women representing NGOs and active groups gathered to declare their demands in equality and a civil family and personal affairs law.

The women set a large tent in Al-Firdows square which witnessed the fall of Saddam in April 2003.

Many Iraqi women are concerned that Islamic law will become the law of the land, resulting in reduced status legally as well as politically. These women came out to protest in the streets, braving the sand storm that has covered Baghdad in dust. Ironically it was neither the dusty skies or the sun's heat that the women dreaded, but something more sinister in black robes.

Our protestors' faces changed and a feeling of discomfort started to spread through the place, one woman said "NO! Not again!!"...

One of the women yelled at the cloud "No, you can't steal the attention this time. Why do you always do this to us every time we have a protest? Why don't you pick another place or another day to do your thing?".

Apparently the "women in black" were ladies who not only endorsed the teachings under Islamic law (regarding women) but also praised them as well which brought the attention of the media. Police separated the two groups in order to prevent a serious confrontation between the two, although there was some "exchange" of words between the two groups.

While the women debated over Islamic law and how it should affect the Iraqi constitution, in a twist of fate the very subject that brought about this debate between these groups in the first place was apparently going to end it just as quickly.

Being faithful to the view that they endorsed, the women in black could only protest for a season, while the ladies marching for freedom could demonstrate as long as they wanted since they were not held under the strict interpretation of the Koran by their loving husbands.
