Canadians' tepid support for the combat mission in Afghanistan would turn
icy should the Afghan government proceed with a law allowing marital rape, a
new poll suggests.
A proposed family law code for Afghanistan's Shia
minority would make it illegal for women to refuse to have sex with their
husbands, and would require that they get approval from a male relative to
leave the house.
A survey by The Canadian Press/Harris-Decima suggests 40 per cent of
Canadians support the Canadian military mission in Afghanistan. But should
the family law code be enacted, the poll suggests opposition to the mission
would rise to roughly 75 per cent.
Jeff Walker, senior vice-president of Harris-Decima, said that at that
level of opposition, it would be difficult for the Harper government to
maintain its commitment to keep combat troops in Afghanistan until 2011.
This brings into very clear light exactly how tenuous the support is for
this effort in Afghanistan, he said.
The controversial code has been passed by Afghanistan's national assembly
but has not yet been enacted. International outrage has forced the
government of President Hamid Karzai to promise a review of the proposed
The review is expected to take two to three months and the Canadian
government, among others, is demanding that the contentious clauses be
removed. However, critics fear Mr. Karzai is simply postponing enactment
until after his country's presidential election in August.
Even without the code controversy, Canadian support for the Afghan
mission appears weak. The poll suggests 55 per cent nationwide oppose it.
Respondents were three times more likely to strongly oppose the mission
(27 per cent) than strongly support it (nine per cent).
Opposition to the mission was highest in Quebec (71 per cent) while
support was strongest in Alberta (55 per cent).
Mr. Walker said support for the mission is based at least in part on
a belief that Canada is helping to improve the lot of women, whose rights
had been severely restricted under the oppressive Taliban regime.
If that's now off the table, I think it fundamentally changes the way
many Canadians look at the rationale for being in Afghanistan altogether and
these numbers just prove that, he said.
Mr. Walker added that it may not even matter if the code is never
enacted. The damage may have been done by the fact that Mr. Karzai, a
supposed western-backed moderate, thought it was acceptable until an
international outcry forced him to make a strategic retreat.
I'm not even sure that backing off helps, Mr. Walker said. If it was
politically expedient, [Mr. Karzai] seems like he would go there. That's not
good for public support in Canada.
The telephone survey of just over 1,000 Canadians was conducted April 2-5
and is considered accurate within 3.1 percentage points 19 times in 20.
its Icy Cold Family Court - with court room walls that ooze pure hatred towards
Perhaps our military should send their recruitment agents to the Feminist Judges
Chambers and pack em off to Afghganistan where they can engage in their own
Crusade of Male Gender Apartheid based on Flawed Feminist Doctrine that gives
women absolute power over men.
If the military cant find enough man haters in judge chambers, perhaps they
could go visit the One Stop Divorce Shops masquerading as women's shelters.
The of course another source of highly motivated man haters would be in the
Feminist Lawyers group who think nothing of fabricating evidence.
Only one problem, the Canadian Military need people with ethics and the above
groups don't need a machine gun, they just quietly destroy families, deprive
children of fathers by simply pulling out their standard court documents with
their standard allegations that rely on the Judiciary's propensity to flagrantly
abuse their power and make feminist political decisions rather than legal moral
or ethical decisions of equity.
Canada attempt to dictate Family Law to Afghanistan is just another example of
how perverted Canadian society has become in adopting Male Sharia Law that
deprives men of legal rights and gives women absolute power to send a man to
jail, send a father to jail for no other reason than being annoyed that he is
still alive after separation.
Spare a thought for our mainly male soldiers, many of whom are guaranteed to be
victims of Canada's policy of Male Gender Apartheid and Male Sharia Law.
Fostering Equality starts at home - In Canada! Many posters correctly ask the
question, How will Canada's involvement in Afghanistan "foster equality".
We are two very different countries, different religions, customs, traditions
and different forms of law. It is absurd for Canada with its own screwed up
inequitable family law festering with man hating corrupt judges, to lecture any
other country on "law"?
What happened to Canada's long reputation as "peace keepers", "tolerance of
other cultures".. its gone, its out the window for the arrogance and zealous
crusade attitudes and ideas from our loud mouth war mongering neighbors.
Even the US military recognize that those attitudes and ideas will not help
"peace keeping". its time for Canada to "get real" and
shut the #$@#$ up , if it wishes to promote its image and reputation of a nation
Canada can forget about its image of a "just society" or of having "the rule of
Every man who has been through Family Court will tell you, our judiciary is
riddled with CORRRUPT feminist man hating judges who make politically correct
decisions that do not even resemble legal decisions.
