Why do bigoted Westerners expect Muslim nations to have the same "human rights" record as them?
So what if women can't drive in Saudi Arabia or no one votes, Britain has a monarchy and so does Saudi Arabia, so how come England isn't condemned? Don't you think it's arrogant on our part as westerners to expect Muslim societies to have our values? Their culture is different, not wrong. Yes, we don't stone homosexuals and adulterers to death, how does that make us better when we are slaves to materialism and hedonism?
In many Muslim societies women are honored through the preservation of their dignity while we parade them around as objects, how is that freedom? So, another society has a different attitude towards gays, what makes us better just b/c we allow them to live openly or marry and some of those countries kill them? That is a cultural different, not a moral one, nor is it indicative of a superior culture or people. We need to leave Islamic/foreign societies alone, if they don't agree with us on whether or not gays should be murdered or women should be allowed outside the home, that is their business and it is not our right to judge. Cultures are different, not superior or inferior, we just have an ethnocentric, imperialist attitude borne of our colonialist, patronizing ways.
