Paging N.O.W. - facebook Page calls for Beating Female Saudi Drivers

There may be no further evidence that civil rights groups and the National Organization of Women (NOW) have zero interest in the cause they supposedly champion than the deafening silent response to a facebook page with thousands of 'likes' in Saudi Arabia that is calling for men to physically beat any woman caught driving a car. Perhaps the biggest whiner of civil rights abuses is the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). It would seem that the mistreatment of women in Saudi Arabia would be a far better cause than filing complaints in the United States that allege abuses that, even if true, are so exponentially less discriminatory.

Via Breitbart:
A campaign has been launched on Facebook calling for men to beat Saudi women who drive their cars in a planned protest next month against the ultra-conservative kingdom's ban on women taking the wheel.
The call comes as activists are demanding the release of Manal al-Sharif, a Saudi woman who was jailed for defying the ban.

The page, titled "The Iqal Campaign: June 17 for preventing women from driving," refers to the Arabic name for the cord used to hold on the traditional headdress worn by many men in the Gulf, advocating the cord be used to hit women who dare to drive.

It has drawn over 6,000 "likes" on the popular social networking website.

Some on the page proposed distributing boxes of Iqals to youths and encouraging them use them to hit women who participate in the June 17 protest.

One joked about the price of Iqals going up due to men buying them before the protest.
Code Pink, CAIR, ACLU, NOW, etc. are conspicuously silent. Even if they make a statement condemning the action, that action is so egregious, these groups should be dropping everything to fight against it.

My money's on 'not gonna happen.'
