"My eyes make me so upset at the fate of the women in my city." Lamentation 3:51

The position of Women in Islam

Under Islamic Law, a Muslim woman is worth half as much as a Muslim man.   

(A Christian or Jewish man is also worth half a Muslim man, and a Christian or Jewish woman is worth half as much as the Christian or Jewish man.  Pagans are worth half as much as Christians or Jews.)   

This means that a Christian woman raped by a Muslim man would need four Muslim men to testify on her behalf !

From time to time, western women fall for rich, charming, intelligent men from Muslim backgrounds.   There are too many testimonies of problems that follow to explore here.  However it should be mentioned that once back home with his family, the man is most likely to change from a western attitude to a hard line Muslim attitude.  

read Now they call me Infidel by Nonie DarwishLook out for "Now they call me Infidel" by Nonie Darwish; an illuminating but loving account of her life story, growing up in Muslim Egypt, and her plea for reform within Islam.

The Qur'an instructs husbands as follows, 

"Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them.  Good women are obedient.  They guard their unseen parts because Allah (God) has guarded them.  As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them."  Qur'an chapter IV verse 34.  

Wife Beating

Wife beating is dutifully carried out.    

Women have no rights or protection under sharia law.

   (A Muslim friend tells me that this wife beating should be carried out using a miswak, a stick the size of a toothbrush)

The Bible calls on Christian wives to submit to their husbands but, in the same passage, the husband is commanded to love his wife as Christ loved the Church.    We know how costly that was.

See geocities.com/urfriendanne for one woman's experiences.

Honour killings

Although, apparently not sanctioned by the Qur'an, many women are killed by members of their own family for allegedly bringing shame on the family. This shame might include being raped (maybe by a relative) or dating an unbeliever. (This happens in non Muslim nations, such as Britain)

The UN estimates that there are 5,000 “honor” killings a year. 

Temporary Wives

Effectively, Sharia compliant use of a prostitute.

Rape and Islam

Any woman claiming to have been raped requires two male witnesses to support her claim. (what chance of that)

The victim of gang rape is likely to be the one who is punished - like this woman in Indonesia

 

Sex Slaves

In Mohammed's military campaigns, conquered males were all slaughtered but the women were saved as spoils of war, not as wives but as concubines - sex slaves.

This is Islam as taught to Walid Shoebat. See also the observations of a Palestinian Christian young woman.

All of this should ring loud alarm bells for any woman attracted to a Muslim man.

 

Islam and non-Muslim girls

Muslim Men are responsible for 91% of the Child Rape Cases In The UK…while Muslims make up only 4% of the population. Lawyer and activist from the Law and Freedom foundation interviewed here.

Muslim Rapists Prefer Blondes - article by Raymond Ibrahim - FrontPage Magazine

The Muslim penchant to target "white" women for sexual exploitation — an epidemic currently plaguing Europe, especially Britain and Scandinavia — is as old as Islam itself, and even traces back to Muhammad.

Much literary evidence attests to this in the context of Islam's early predations on Byzantium (for centuries, Christendom's easternmost bulwark against the jihad).

The similarities between pre-modern Islamic views of Byzantium and modern Islamic views of the West — powerful, affluent, desirable, and the greatest of all infidels — should be evident. But they do not end here. To the medieval Muslim mind, Byzantium was further representative of "white people" — fair haired/eyed Christians, or, as they were known in Arabic, Banu al-Asfar, "children of yellow" (reference to blonde hair).

Taharrush

Taharrush is the Arabic word for the activity whereby women are encircled by groups of men and sexually harassed, assaulted, groped and raped. The phenomenon became known after the Cologne taharrush on New Year's Eve 2015. A culture that has a specific word for sexual assaults of women by groups of men is a danger to all women. The existence of the word indicates that the phenomenon is widespread. Article by Gatestone Institute.

Female Genital Mutilation

More than 2,000 victims of female genital mutilation have sought treatment at London hospitals in the past three years. - - fgm-statistics-shock-england - See also the USA - female-genital-mutilation-rise-us

Young Muslim women / girls are at risk when they make trips to their land of origin.

Muslims and academics in the West take pains to insist that the practice is not rooted in religion but rather in culture.”

Available statistics on the global prevalence of FGM come mostly from African countries, especially Muslim-majority ones, and have been gathered primarily by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

There seems to be a deliberate dearth of FGM statistics from Middle Eastern countries, where the influence of Islamic law, mosque imams and local traditions that pre-date Islam may all contribute to what is likely a vastly underreported practice.

Understanding Female Suicide Bombers

Polygamy

In Muslim nations a man is allowed to have four wives and Marriage certificates have spaces for four wives. Read Nonie Darwish's book for the implications of this.

This raises problems that western governments are failing to address as they seek to accommodate multiculturalism and Sharia while Polygamy is illegal. There are Muslims claiming benefits for more than one wife! As someone said,

Multiculturalism is doing a lot of damage. Firstly to common sense: if a man is married in Senegal with one woman and in Italy with another, this cannot be defined as monogamy. A crime remains such whether it is committed in Italy or abroad. Such tricks are actually a way to suggest loopholes for polygamy. Thus, if an Italian wants to have more than just one wife, all he needs to do is to convert to Islam!

Britain is supporting Muslim polygamy through the benefits system

Extracts from an article by Soeren Kern , a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the New York-based Gatestone Institute.

Muslim immigrants with more than one wife will see an increase in their social welfare benefits beginning in 2013, when reforms to the British welfare system come into effect. Although polygamy is illegal in Britain, the state effectively recognizes the practice for Muslim men, who often have up to four wives (and in some instances five or more) in a harem.

Currently the state pays extra wives in polygamous households reduced amounts of individual income support, in addition to the normal amount received by the husband and his first spouse. Under the new rules, however, the extra wives will be eligible to claim a full single person's allowance (despite being married), while the original married couple will still receive the standard married person's allowance.

The controversy over multiple marriages in Britain became a national issue in September 2011 with the publication of a hard-hitting essay entitled, "Polygamy, Welfare Benefits and an Insidious Silence." It was written by Baroness Shreela Flather, Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, who was born in Lahore (now part of Pakistan) and was the first Asian woman member of the British House of Lords.

The Veil

Muslim women (and even schoolgirls) in western nations are making an issue of wearing versions of the veil that cover everything except a slit for the eyes. This appears to be a ploy to make a point that they are more modest than western women, but also to drive a wedge into native law and practice, demanding recognition of Sharia. In fact, the Qur'an only calls on women to dress modestly. It is arguable that coercing women to cover up so completely is about ownership of a woman and denying her a personality to interact with anyone else.

Muslims and Pornography

More specifically Muslim Jihadis; Why Are Jihadis So Obsessed with Porn?

By Dr. Phyllis Chesler - extracts

According to Syrian doctors in a report in the British media, ISIS fighters are buying frilly underwear for their wives and sex slaves — and subjecting them to abnormal and sadistic sexual practices. They may well have learned this from pornography.

He’s on to something important and profound.

The Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden found a fairly extensive stash of modern pornography in his possession. The 9/11 jihadists visited strip clubs, paid for lap dances, and for prostitutes in their motel rooms in Boston, Las Vegas and Florida.

Anwar Al-Awlaki, the American-born imam who fled to Yemen in 2004 and was later assassinated by a US drone, ate a lot of pizza and visited a lot of prostitutes in the months after 9/11. As a presumably “holy man,” Al-Awlaki mentored at least three of the 9/11 hijackers, the Fort Hood shooter, the would-be Times Square bomber (Faisal Shahzad) and the underwear bomber.

In the years since 9/11, police raids of terrorist cells in the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain have yielded countless images of hard-core child pornography. ..... (many more examples)

It’s easy to imagine pornography’s empowering effect upon would-be jihadists, who may unable to afford the price of a wife or a prostitute, who are young, without normal sexual outlets and already predisposed to violence towards women — and to paedophilia .

Yet, while most of the Muslim world is profoundly sexist (and while porn is everywhere there, too), few Muslims approve of porn. Indeed, its leaders often castigate the West for exposing women in a sexually explicit way.
