Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad must be stopped.

Sarah Palin was gagged at the United Nations when ready to deliver her speech. But her speech got out to the media, nevertheless.

Rally committees concluded they did not want a political venue for the appearance of Ahmadinejad at the UN; therefore, Sarah Palin was sidelined.

In her printed speech, she spoke not only as a Vice Presidential candidate but as a true feminist. She did not fear pointing out specific cruelties leveled against females by Islamic governments, Iran in particular.

She advocated for women everywhere—to be treated civilly—but especially for women in Muslim environs. That is something that the National Organization for Women has not done. That is
something that politically liberal females are not noted for.

Sarah Palin speaks for Americans. She speaks especially for women for she has a conscience for women and their situations worldwide.

She stated per The New York Sun: “It is said that the measure of a country is the treatment of its most vulnerable citizens. By that standard, the Iranian government is both oppressive and barbaric. Under Ahmadinejad's rule, Iranian women are some of the most vulnerable citizens.

“If an Iranian woman shows too much hair in public, she risks being beaten or killed.

“If she walks down a public street in clothing that violates the state dress code, she could be arrested.

“But in the face of this harsh regime, the Iranian women have shown courage. Despite threats to their lives and their families, Iranian women have sought better treatment through the ‘One Million Signatures Campaign Demanding Changes to Discriminatory Laws.’

“The authorities have reacted with predictable barbarism. Last year, women's rights activist Delaram Ali was sentenced to 20 lashes and 10 months in prison for committing the crime of ‘propaganda against the system.’

“After international protests, the judiciary reduced her sentence to ‘only’ 10 lashes and 36 months in prison and then temporarily suspended her sentence. She still faces the threat of imprisonment.”

That kind of public conviction has not been heard from any well-known liberal female leader. Most male political leaders have silenced their tongues on the subject as well.

At the Democratic National Convention, B. Hussein Obama did not mean the Islamic threat once. Yet it is the prime threat to the entire world.

At the Republican National Convention Sarah Palin focused on it in her speech. She stated it as the prime threat to the entire world.

Sarah Palin is the woman that all American women should see is placed alongside John McCain in DC in January.

While giving attention to women’s plights under Muslim rule, her first thrust was against Iran’s nuclear threat to the planet and the ominous presence of that country’s leader in Manhattan.

“Ahmadinejad may choose his words carefully, but underneath all of the rhetoric is an agenda that threatens all who seek a safer and freer world. We gather here today to highlight the Iranian dictator's intentions and to call for action to thwart him.

“He must be stopped.”

With that, Sarah Palin tallied representative alliances Ahmadinejad has throughout the world, ties that are meant to bring destruction to us all.

Of course, her list could not be complete, but what she sited was warning enough that Sarah Palin and John McCain mean business when tackling the Iranian evil empire.

This is the kind of leadership that the Republic must have if we are going to win for freedom’s sake, if we are to survive as a democracy.

When Sarah Palin says that she puts “Country First,” she means it.

  1. Interesting how they kicked Mrs. Palin to the curb like this. Her message was clear and to the point. Iran had better cease and desist or face the music.

    Or dare I say, the Iranian regime should be utterly wiped off the map.
