Ever wonder why feminists are so silent about Islam?

From Rooters...

Four Saudi women teaching in a remote village school have married their driver so they can live closer to work, Al-Watan newspaper said on Monday.

The newspaper said the women from Al-Baha province in south-west Saudi Arabia were impressed with the man's "good morals" and decided to marry him and live together in the village where they teach -- avoiding a tiring daily commute.

They were married in a short ceremony, and have agreed to pay the driver a share of their monthly salaries, Al-Watan said. Women are not allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia, while men can marry up to four women according to Islamic law.

[While I generally make it a policy not to quote entire stories...the idiots only wrote three paragraphs (a total of four sentences), leaving me with not much choice]

So why aren't feminists supporting the war on Terror, which is ultimately a war on the extremist part of Islam? If we remove the terrorists, those who force Saudi Arabia to be such a toilet* will lose power, and the people, especially the women, will be able to enjoy some freedom. You'd think Feminists would be overjoyed at the idea, but they seem fairly apathetic. Maybe Feminism isn't really about women after all, hmmm.

*toilet - nasty place you don't want to go to, but have to, to take care of business.
