I had just finished reading her book, Iran Awakening, and I would like to say that only people from Islamic countries,and women in particular, can appreciate her struggle for the welfare of all humanity because they know exactly what price a woman should pay for spending her life confronting tyrants, then seeking justice and equality. God bless her. I want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to listen and learn more about her.

Saudi Arabia did put out a Arab Human Rights in Middle 1960`s, However they purposely left out the equality for women, they mentioned Non-Muslims, converts,and slaves, yet women were less than slaves and not even considered. ยท3 things are necessary for change anything less is a Entertaining Distraction. First, get rid of Supreme being, the king must die, so people can live, 2nd Separation Mosque from State, Religion separate from civil government, Third Most important FREE ALL WOMEHN EQUAL rights for women and gays. Anything less than free press, free individual, Free PEOPLE, is a JOKE a DEADLY JOKE!

I don't know what the Islamic Declaration of Human Rights says, but why should there be anything besides the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? How could someone say any of those points are not human rights? All governments and societies should honor them.
