Who Is Hege Storhaug?

FacebookTwitterGoogle+PrintFriendlyRedditDeliciousStumbleUponEmailShare

Hege Storhaug is an intelligent, courageous Human Rights activist who lives in Norway. Here’s an excerpt from an article “Hege Storhaug, Fighting for Human Rights in Norway” by Bruce Bawer:

Fewer have heard of Hege Storhaug, who for many years has been fighting the same fight in Norway.  She is co-founder and information director of Human Rights Service, a non-partisan think tank in Oslo that studies problems arising out of Norway’s ethnic and religious diversity – especially those affecting Muslim women and children whose rights are denied to them by the imams and family patriarchs that run their communities – and proposes policy changes.

HRS, which Storhaug founded with her partner, Rita Karlsen, in 2001, has focused public attention on such widespread phenomena as forced marriage, honor killing, female genital mutilation (a brutal procedure performed on small girls in many immigrant communities), divorce rights (a Muslim man can divorce his wife at will, while a Muslim wife seeking divorce is subjected by sharia law to a long, drawn-out procedure which may or may not go her way), the abuse of immigration laws, and the sending of Norwegian Muslim children to their parents’ homelands to attend primitive schools where they learn only about the Koran.

HRS has trained a spotlight on these problems – and challenged politicians and bureaucrats to take action. Read the rest of Bruce Bawer’s article HERE.

Who is Maryam Namazie and Why Do We Care?

Ida Lichter on A Critic of Political Islam Warns of ‘Misguided’ West

Lichter profiles Maryam Namazie, whom she calls “a powerful voice against political Islam.  Following are some excerpts from the blog:

Her [Maryam] concerns extend beyond women’s rights to the ideology of political Islam, or Islamism, which she describes as a far right, totalitarian, homophobic, misogynist movement with imperialist designs. Adherents of this heretical strain of the religion aim for state conquest and rule by sharia.”

Perhaps the greatest current boost to political Islam in the West, she says, derives from cultural relativism that has advanced notions of moral equivalence, tolerance of extremism, and also silenced opinion makers fearful of being labeled racist.

Critics of Islamism, she says, are vitally important to the well being of the West and the vast majority of Muslims. In her case, a clear message is matched with activism as spokesperson for the One Law for All Campaign against sharia in Britain, the International Committee against Stoning and other human rights organizations.”

. . . the dangers of political Islam inherent in the Iranian revolution were largely ignored. Originally left-leaning and female led, the revolution was hijacked by Islamists, and although brutally suppressed, revolutionary fervor was never destroyed. Seventy percent of the population in Iran is under the age of 30, well educated and committed to the Internet. This new generation is now attempting to complete the revolution that was started three decades ago.”

European Women Oppressed and Raped in Cultural Jihad

Look across the Atlantic Ocean to see what the future holds for the USA. As more and more Muslims enter the country, we will experience the same problems as European countries since the doctrine, culture and laws are the same for Islam no matter where it goes. So what are problems that women face from this tribal civilization?

Here’s one of the reasons behind the rapes according to an imam who describes women without veils as “uncovered meat.”

Britain: The rapes of British women and girls by Muslim men is increasing.

Here’s information about the problem and its causes, including the belief in the humiliation of the Kafir who is seen as an inferior being.

Dark Secrets That Kafirs Are Not Supposed To Know

 

Sharia law is the law all Muslims must follow according to Islamic doctrine which makes Islam a theocracy. Is sharia compatible with Western laws? Is it compatible with our United States Constitution? Read this article by Dr. Andrew Bostoma and you can answer that question yourself. Here is an excerpt:

“How Sharia Undermines Western Justice”

Wife-battering imam of the Darul Quran Mosque in Munich, Sheikh Abu Adam, is the face of Germany’s Islamic “Justice.” Adam gave a lecture at the city’s Catholic University entitled “An Islam which distances itself from violence,” shortly before being arrested (12/10) for allegedly assaulting his spouse so violently that she suffered a broken nose and shoulder and numerous cuts and bruises. Media reports claimed the woman, who has borne one of his ten children, wanted to live a more “western” lifestyle, and was allegedly attacked by him after expressing this wish to her husband.

The icon of Germany’s Islamic parallel Islamic “justice” system,  Sheikh Adam, purportedly shouted Koran 4:34 at his wife as he beat her. [for eg., Shakir translation: “Men are the maintainers of women because Allah has made some of them to excel others and because they spend out of their property; the good women are therefore obedient, guarding the unseen as Allah has guarded; and (as to) those on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.”]
