Wings of the same chicken
Khatami after three years in office is a living proof of an argument
which supports the notion that Islamist reformer and conservative Islamist
hard liner fundamentally, politically, culturally, and in most case socially
are the two right wings of the same chicken ["What
rule of law?"].
Question here is not the denial of women's rights to enlist in the military;
in fact women in the military have proven to be as aggressive, oppressive,
and violent as men if not more, but the policy shows militarism's nature
of intervention. So clearly it is Islam that is the source of human rights
violations not different factions of Islamists.
Like all religions, Islamic ideology and belief systems are oppressive,
plunder and enslave very basic human rights, promote racism and slavery.
The Roman Catholic Italians have a term for parochialism of their peasantry:
"campanilismo" translated to "rule of the bell." One's
loyalty extended as far as one could hear the "campanile," the
village church bell or Islamic azaan, beyond that territory, you better
watch out "no good people."
Why did Mohammad's army attack other tribes and civilizations? More
likely, to gain access to a profitable workforce and superexploit their
labor and land.. Nowadays, capitalist ways of living well off the labor
of others, exploiting immigrant labor are Dark Age tactics.
