The Obama administration/Arabophile State Dept. and the EU are the two worst Western players in international geo-politics that there could be.

Obama and Ashton’s Non-Existent Red Lines in Tehran?
The EU’s top diplomat, Catherine Ashton, made her first visit to Iran Saturday on International Women’s Day. Her main goal was to rehabilitate the anti-Western mullah regime as a partner for the Europeans. Ashton, along with the Obama administration, seeks to end Iran’s illicit nuclear weapons program.
In light of the desire of many Iranian women for a liberalization of Iran’s strict Islamic dress codes, it was odd that Ashton donned a head-scarf during her meeting with Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. Deference to Iran’s form of gender apartheid certainly sends the wrong message to Iran’s struggling human-rights activists.
Fox News reported last month that Iran’s morality police demanded that mannequins in stores be covered with the traditional Islamic head-scarf—the hijab. An exasperated store owner said, “I mean really, the mannequins? They have to have hijab? Where are we living?” Iran’s allegedly “moderate” president Hassan Rouhani has not introduced any curbs on the fashion police. “In terms of fashion, this and previous governments are the same,” said Neda, a lifestyle blogger in Tehran.
