What Happens When a Muslim Woman is Beaten in Public?

Here is an interesting study in how we Westerners treat the Muslim culture differently:

Why don't people help that poor woman?  In my analysis, it is just a simple continuation of the West's acceptance of Islam's subjugation of their women.  Forced covering, genital mutilation, honor killings, rape, slavery (sexual and otherwise) is business as usual in the Islamic world.  We all know it is happening, and we let it happen (all while complaining about a "war on women" where US women are forced - FORCED - to pay for their own contraceptives).

When we see it in person, we know what it means - Islam treats their women with abject brutality.  We're not surprised, and we're sensitive to accept "cultural differences," regardless of how brutal those "differences" are to the women of their society.

I firmly believe that one day history will look back at the West's failure to do anything for women in Muslim countries in the same what that we look back at slavery in this date and age.

With abject shame.  As it should be.
