What about women

Reader comment on item: Saudis Import Slaves to America
in response to reader comment: wahabis are not muslims, but demi-gods, dont blame the religion blame the people

The countries mentioned were all Islamic dominated countries. The word "men" is used but not "women". It is my understanding, depending on location and family wealth women have little or no rights. There are hundreds of cases of women held like a servant or slave to the will of the men. many come from foreign countries and can not leave. Their greatest sin is that they use their religion to justify what they do to women. I don't believe that any religious law that is the basis of governing a people or country is evil. Look around today. And yes, history is a repeat of nations powerful and weak who have used slavery for many purposes.
