We have a saying in Arabic that says, “it’s like a camel pissing”, i.e. backwards*. Now read this and think of camels.

Ontario is considering a report which recommends that it allow Sharia religious arbitration for issues such as divorce and child custody.
How bizarre!!

But the proposal has alarmed women's' and human rights groups. They say sharia law does not view women as equal to men.
I have already emailed my friend at the Organization for Women’s Freedom in Iraq telling her that she might need to open an office in Canada soon.

*I have never seen a camel take a whizz so I can’t verify that they do piss backwards, but what a nice proverb, eh?
