Not An Argument

May as well put up another video. This time its a very short exchange between the late Christopher Hitchens and an Australian/Iranian woman. I notice that she is wearing a figure-hugging top, exposing her arms and no head scarf. Despite her rambling fatuous argument about the Koran guarantees so many rights for women, she knows very well she could not dress like that in Tehran while being allowed to shout out arguments to men in public. In Iran women aren’t even allowed to expose their hair online! The police over there have arrested models for doing such a thing. Maybe this explains hypocritical ladies like this one, who enjoy all the freedoms (including that of public debate) of the West but still have that whining defensiveness about their cultural origins. I guess blood is thicker than water. If this woman enjoys so many rights in her country of origin then why does she live in Australia?
