Another Arab Spring Triumph! Muslim Brotherhood denounces UN "End Violence Against Women" report

The complaints the Muslim Brotherhood have about the UN report include objections to Gay Rights, women's equality, and they want to preserve a husband's right to force sex upon his wife:

1. Granting girls full sexual freedom, as well as the freedom to decide their own gender and the gender of their partners (ie, choose to have normal or homo- sexual relationships), while raising the age of marriage.
2. Providing contraceptives for adolescent girls and training them to use those, while legalizing abortion to get rid of unwanted pregnancies, in the name of sexual and reproductive rights.
3. Granting equal rights to adulterous wives and illegitimate sons resulting from adulterous relationships.
4. Granting equal rights to homosexuals, and providing protection and respect for prostitutes.
5. Giving wives full rights to file legal complaints against husbands accusing them of rape or sexual harassment, obliging competent authorities to deal husbands punishments similar to those prescribed for raping or sexually harassing a stranger.
6. Equal inheritance (between men and women).
7. Replacing guardianship with partnership, and full sharing of roles within the family between men and women such as: spending, child care and home chores.
8. Full equality in marriage legislation such as: allowing Muslim women to marry non-Muslim men, and abolition of polygamy, dowry, men taking charge of family spending, etc.
9. Removing the authority of divorce from husbands and placing it in the hands of judges, and sharing all property after divorce.
10. Cancelling the need for a husband’s consent in matters like: travel, work, or use of contraception.
These are destructive tools meant to undermine the family as an important institution; they would subvert the entire society, and drag it to pre-Islamic ignorance.

We wouldn't want the world to be dragged into pre-Islamic ignorance. Not when the Muslim Brotherhood and their friends have worked so hard to impose Islamic ignorance on so much of the Arab world.

"...and drag it to pre-Islamic ignorance", must mean that pesky Christianity problem.

They're doing their best to eradicate that in Egypt and Pakistan.

When all the leftist radicals in Canada asked for a "Canadian Spring" is this what they had in mind?
