A Moroccan teen forced into marrying her alleged rapist last year has been attacked with a razor blade and beaten by him for seeking a divorce, media reported Tuesday.

The 17-year-old only identified as Khaoula was attacked in Marrakech on Saturday after filing for divorce, the Tel Quel weekly said, citing the AMDH independent rights group.

She suffered multiple cuts which “disfigured” parts of her body and required about 40 stitches, the French-language weekly reported.

Al Aoula television quoted a doctor at Marrakech’s Ibn Tofail hospital, where she was treated, as saying that the teenager had been “struck in the face 50 times and had wounds on her hands and arms”.

“I swear that nobody will marry you after me,” Khaoula’s husband was reported to have said to her, according to several media outlets.

Two Pakistani brothers were arrested Tuesday for killing their mother and two teenage step-sisters after accusing them of adultery, police said.

The brothers, in their early thirties, were detained after their father reported the incident in the eastern city of Lahore.

“Shaban Ahmed, father of the accused, reported the incident to the police saying his sons have killed his wife, Sughra 50 years old, and his daughters Muqadas, 18, and Amina, 16,” local police official Mohammad Ayub told AFP.

Last year 869 women died in so-called “honor killings” according to the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan.

The statistics highlight the violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens.

Zealots on motorcycles are throwing acid at women whose veils are deemed too loose in the ancient city of Isfahan. Are they defying the law, or enforcing it?

[ . . . ]

On October 16 the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA) confirmed one report: a woman in a car had been attacked, and acid was thrown in her face. There was widespread speculation that it was done as a means of punishment because the woman was wearing an “improper” hejab arranged to show too much of the hair and face beneath.

Acid Attacks in Iran

0 copyNews reports are coming in of massive demonstrations in Iran on October 25, throughout the northern half of the country — Saqqez, Tehran, Mashhad, Rasht, Shahr-e Kord, and Isfahan. The protests all focused on the issue of acid-throwing. At each event, the regime’s Revolutionary Guards, the police and their supporters moved in hard with tear gas and pepper spray. They were shooting in the air, and battering women.

[ . . . ]

In early October 2014 alone, there were as many as 14 acid attacks on young women in Isfahan.[1]

One woman died from injuries sustained in the attack. The others have seen their futures destroyed within moments. Here is what acid can do:

“What Dano threw at her was sulfuric acid that melted her eyes to the sockets and left little of her face. Her nose and lips also disintegrated and one of her ears was severely disfigured. At the time, she was only fifteen, and her life would be changed forever.”[2]

Islamic Countries Lowest on Gender Equality Index

BurkasIraq1 copyRecently the World Economic Forum released its annual “Global Gender Gap Index.” It showed what Associated Press calls a “marginal improvement” in women’s equality worldwide, according to data on several categories like access to healthcare, survival rates, education, income, and participation in the workplace and politics.

While mostly Nordic countries comprised the top ten among the 142 countries rated, the bottom ten included Morocco, Jordan, Lebanon, Iran, Syria, Pakistan, and Yemen – all of which are predominantly Muslim.

Penny Nance is CEO and president of Concerned Women for America. “We’ve said all along that women in the Middle East, women in many Muslim countries, are suffering from lack of basic human rights,” she tells OneNewsNow.

“There’s not the equal protection under the law for them, they don’t have the right to own property – they don’t even have the right to drive a car or to go out in public without a man. There is certainly a deficit of freedom for Islamic women.”

In light of the report, Nance wonders why American feminists aren’t voicing outrage.

Yes, where are the American feminists and why aren’t they “voicing outrage?” Or at least talking and writing about the horrors of being a woman in an Islamic country.

Lies about FGM Debunked

fgmc_map_2014_189 copyThis week’s episode of The Glazov Gang was joined by Dr. Mark Christian, the President and Executive Director of the Global Faith Institute. He is the son and nephew of high-ranking leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in his home country of Egypt. A former Islamic Imam who converted from Islam to Christianity, he dedicated his life and work to the proposition that “the first victims of Islam are the Muslim themselves.”

Dr. Christian came on the show to discuss Reza Aslan’s Lies About Islamic Female Genital Mutilation, giving a first-hand account about a vicious Islamic crime perpetrated against Muslim girls. He discussed the Islamic theology that serves as the buffer to Islamic FGM and shared his own experience as a doctor trying to help the Muslim women who had been victimized by it.

He also shed light on Rula Jebreal’s Deceptions Against Bill Maher, unveiling the falsehoods Jebreal recently uttered on Maher’s program about Islam in her effort to delegitimize the Real Time host’s truth-telling about Islamic terror and tyranny.

The ‘Eyes’ Have It in Saudi Arabia

niqab copyWomen with attractive eyes may be forced to cover them up under Saudi Arabia’s latest repressive measure, it was reported yesterday.

The ultra-conservative Islamic state has said it has the right to stop women revealing ‘tempting’ eyes in public.

A spokesperson for Saudi Arabia’s Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, Sheikh Motlab al Nabet, said a proposal to enshrine the measure in law has been tabled.

Women in Saudi Arabia already have to wear a long black cloak, called an abaya, cover their hair and, in some regions, conceal their faces while in public.

If they do not, they face punishments including fines and public floggings. One report on the Bikya Masr news website suggested the proposal was made after a member of the committee was attracted by a woman’s eyes as he walked along a street, provoking a fight.

A Saudi activist’s responds to the misogynists of her country:

One of Saudi Arabia’s preeminent activists [Manal al-Sharif], who led the right-to-drive movement, describes her decision to take off the niqab:. No piece of cloth throughout history has sparked more controversy as the veil. Many Muslim women are forced to wear it daily. The hijab has a spectrum, of course, from its most radical embodiments, the niqab, which covers the entire face, to loose fitting headscarves.

Saudi Arabia comes come second only to Iran in using the power of the stick (the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice or the religious police) to impose a particular form and color of hejab on all our women. And when I say all our women, I mean all: Saudi and non-Saudi, Muslim and non-Muslim alike.

“Zealot” – Review of a Play About Women in Islam

Political appointees lock horns in Mecca over the fate of a young Muslim woman who committed heresy – or asserted her human rights, or did what Allah told her to, or broke a law, depending on which character’s point of view you’re hearing.

It’s Theresa Rebeck’s “Zealot,” a grab bag of opposing viewpoints about gender roles, politics and religion, in its world premiere through Nov. 16 at South Coast Repertory.

Ann (Charlayne Woodard), U.S. Under Secretary of State, has hustled to Mecca in response to postings on the Net that there may be an uprising of some sort during the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage that able Muslims are required to make at least once in their life. Ann is African American and an American Muslim.

She lands in the office of British consul Edgar (Alan Smyth), and almost immediately a bloodied Saudi cleric named Usama (Demosthenes Chrysan) arrives, reporting that “many” women (the number is unspecified) praying in the mosque removed their hijab, inspiring a violent riot.

A few minutes later, a young Farsi-speaking Iranian suspected protester (though she calls herself only a witness and denies having removed her headscarf) named Marina (Nikki Massoud) shows up to ask for asylum in the U.S.

Ann immediately offers asylum, while Edgar insists she be turned over to local authorities, inspiring a debate over whose rights should be respected: the individual’s or the state’s.

It’s an explosive mixture – politics, religion and the status of women in the context of this particularly troubled area – and as battle lines shift (especially after it is revealed that Marina has spent time at an American university), it soon becomes clear that nobody will “win” this debate.

On Saturday last, a brave Iranian woman, Reyhaneh Jabbari (26), walked to her execution in Tehran despite worldwide protests at her sentencing for the alleged killing of a man she accused of trying to rape her.

Her last letter to her mother would bring tears to the most hardened person. She did not want to have a grave and her mother mourning at the grave. She donated her organs to the needy for transplantation. There was no news from a tightly-controlled Iran as to whether that wish had been carried out.

More on Muslim Grooming and Rape of British Teens

2012622_124011 copyShabir Ahmed, a delivery driver for two takeout places, did not have to go looking for young girls. Runaways and rebellious teenagers would show up at the restaurants, often hungry and cold. He slipped them free drinks and chicken tikka masala. “Call me Daddy,” he would say.

But soon, Ahmed, a father of four, would demand payback. In a room above one of the restaurants, according to testimony and evidence in later legal proceedings against him, he would play a pornographic DVD and pass around shots of vodka. Then, on a floor mattress with crumpled blue sheets and kitchen smells wafting from below, he raped them, and later forced them into sex with co-workers and friends, too.

The girls were too scared of him to talk. And when they did, no one believed them. Once, a 15- year-old got so drunk and upset that she smashed a glass counter. Ahmed and his colleagues did not hesitate to call the police. After she was released, she was coerced into sex four or five times a week, sometimes with half a dozen men at a time, in apartments and taxis around Rochdale, a town in northwest England near Manchester.

The police and other agencies were alerted more than 100 times over six years to the possibility that something very wrong was happening before Ahmed, now 61, was arrested and charged as the leader of a sexual exploitation ring that involved eight men of Pakistani descent and one Afghan. In May 2012, he was given a 19-year prison sentence for raping and abetting rape in a case involving at least 47 girls, all of them white. Ahmed showed no remorse. He called the judge a “racist bastard,” the girls “prostitutes” and blamed white Britons for “training” their daughters in drinking and sexual activity at a young age.

[ . . .]

The recent revelations that at least 1,400 teenage and preteenage girls had been sexually exploited over 16 years by so-called grooming gangs in another northern English city, Rotherham, stunned the nation because of the sheer scale of the abuse. And it put an uncomfortable spotlight on issues of race, religion and ethnicity in an increasingly multicultural nation: Nearly all of the rape suspects are Pakistani men, and nearly all of the victims are white.

It is sad that these girls have no decent family and ethics to keep them safe from sexual predators. And it is disgusting that Islam allows for this ‘rape jihad’ behavior.
