Virginity Checks


I make no secret about my Pro-Zionist feelings. I like to think that even if I weren't an MOT I would still see the abundant legitimacy of the Jewish Homeland. 

What's interesting is that the Arab countries that call for Israel to abide by UN Resolution 242 are the same nation's that choose to ignore the UN's original mandate for the original creation and recognition in 1948.

Which makes it all the more ridiculous when Arab dictatorships conveniently blame Israel for any trouble that ails them. When turmoil does arise, as it is now during the "Arab Spring", it is always a fabrication of  crafty Mossad agents. Or it's always the Jewish media trying to make Arabs look bad in the eyes of the world.

This is hardly an area in which they need any assistance.

Consider the headlines of the day. In an effort to maintain a grip on power, Moamar Quadaffi has unleashed the might of the Libyan army on his own citizens. Syrian President Assad has committed mass murder on hundreds of residents in Daraa. And last week it was reported on CNN that Egyptian generals had conducted "virginity checks" on women who had been seen in Tahrir Square.

I can't for the life of me understand why it would be important to the military that some members of the crowd be confirmed virgins. The morality police should be more concerned about the morality of their own actions. If you ask me, all this pent up sexual repression is the source of this monumental regional discontent. And why it's not a good place to be a goat.

Can you imagine if this had happened in France or Italy or some other first world country governed by civilized people? 

And yet hardly a peep was raised in the court of world opinion. Or even the Arab league. Perhaps it's because we expect so little in the way of civility from the countries of the Middle East. Perhaps we've been desensitived by the beheadings, the stonings and the suicide bombings.

I think it's time we break out the DNA sampling kits and begin counting chromosomes. 
I think it's time we start doing "humanity-checks."
