Celebrating International Women's Day - Honouring women who fight for Democracy

Tom Winnifrith
Saturday 9 March 2013

I think regular readers know my views on this one. If we have to celebrate any women on another ridiculous "Word something day" I celebrate those women who fight for the only democracy in the Middle East, the only country in the Middle East where a gay pride parade does not end with a ritual stoning, the only country in the Middle East where the press is allowed to attach and expose the (elected) Governemment and the only country in the Middle East that has voluntarily given up land to create an independent state in an area where Palestinians are the majority population. I refer to the women who fight for Israel.

Incidentally when is world entrepreneurs day, celebrating those folks who take a risk to create jobs to generate taxes that goes to pay for all these World days? 

Hat tip. Order Order.
