When you sup with the Devil, you need a long spoon
Bolivia's government sells out its women - cheap:
Good: The Iranian Red Crescent paid $1.2 million to build a hospital in the Bolivian city of El Alto.A lot of prestigious American universities have similarly been gobbling down free food from Muslim tables; how long before we read about dress codes for students enrolling in courses of study bankrolled by Saudi-donated "chairs", or maybe quietly-enforced entrance barriers (i.e., no Jews allowed)?
Not good: The Iranian government is requiring that the hospital’s female employees, who are mostly Christian, all wear Iranian Muslim-style hijabs. As might be expected, El Alto’s doctors and nurses are livid.
According to local paper La Prensa (Spanish, English translation here), the hospital told potential female applicants that they would be required to wear the hijab during job interviews.
The South American country is in the middle of a national debate over the hospital’s policy. Lourdes Millares of the opposition Podemos party called the hijab-only policy “an assault on the dignity of women” and criticized president Evo Morales for “submission to the rules of another government.” Popular Bolivian television host and gay rights activist Maria Galindo criticized the hospital’s rules as well — she considered it a step backwards into the medieval era.
