Nonie Darwish Deserves a Nice Christmas Present

Nonie DarwishNonie Darwish is one of my favorite people of all times.  She’s an activist from Egypt, a sociologist/anthropologist, who understands the Islamic civilization and its laws and can translate for the West. She is a courageous apostate, a Christian convert who speaks plainly about the Arabic tribal religion, culture and politics of Islam and how Sharia law affects our Western Civilization, especially women, children and minority groups.

Her book:  Cruel And Unusual Punishment.  is all about sharia law and is a must read.

Her latest, The Devil We Don’t Know: The Dark Side of Revolution in the Middle East is an analysis of the recent Mid-east Islamic uprisings.  From Amazon:

“Backing up all of her claims with hard facts and solid, well-reasoned arguments, Darwish makes it clear that she has no fear of controversy, and The Devil We Don’t Know is sure to provoke plenty of that as events continue to unfold.”

And then there is Nonie’s personal story, Now They Call Me Infidel .

Nonie knows about the lack of liberty.  Nonie knows that freedom isn’t free. Nonie is an intelligent, wise woman and that is why her books should be read.

The Fate of Muslim Women in Europe

Three women in white burkas on European streetPlease take the time to watch this video about the rise of Islam in Europe from Vlad Tepes  and the Gates of Vienna.  At minute 12:59, you will find an enlightening segment about Muslim women who live in a supposedly free Europe.

This is beyond gender discrimination.  This is beyond anything we in the West know about the treatment of women in a civilized world.  And this is the fate of Muslim women, not just inEurope, but anywhere there is the practice of Islam.

 

(h/t to Janet Levy)

The Koran, Sura 4:34

YUSUFALI: Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allah has given the one more (strength) than the other, and because they support them from their means. Therefore the righteous women are devoutly obedient, and guard in (the husband’s) absence what Allah would have them guard. As to those women on whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill-conduct, admonish them (first), (Next), refuse to share their beds, (And last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them Means (of annoyance): For Allah is Most High, great (above you all).
PICKTHAL: Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great.

SHAKIR: 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.

The Real Gender War the Left Ignores


Women War and PeaceA reporter takes leftists to task over their lack of response to the oppression and inequality of women in Islamic countries.


For the greater part of this election cycle, we’ve heard a good deal from the left about a fictional Republican “war on women.” Everyone from President himself to Georgetown-law-student-turned-Democratic-mouthpiece Sandra Fluke has tried to convince female voters that Mitt Romney is hostile to the female portion of the electorate.

But thousands of miles away, there is a real war on women. It is one that Obama and his supporters would prefer to ignore.

In the same region where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, were brutally murdered on Sept. 11, women suffer each and every day. Radical Islamic thugs were behind the fatal attack in Benghazi, as well as the riots that spread across the Middle East; Muslim females, however, are persecuted and oppressed not by terrorists, but by their own communities, governments and even families.

Obtaining insurance-covered contraceptives  is the least of these women’s worries. Instead, females in many Muslim countries are focused on having their bodies fully covered from head to toe, aren’t allowed to drive and cannot leave their homes without the supervision of a male family member, [ can be beaten by their husbands for disobedience].  . . .

In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, Time magazine investigated this problem in an article called “The Women of Islam,” a piece that remains relevant today. It diagnoses the problem as a profound one, dating back centuries: “The Koran allots daughters half the inheritance of sons. It decrees that a woman’s testimony in court, at least in financial matters, is worth half that of a man’s. Under Shari’a, or Muslim law, compensation for the murder of a woman is half the going rate for men.

“In many Muslim countries, these directives are incorporated into contemporary law. For a woman to prove rape in Pakistan, for example, four adult males of ‘impeccable’ character must witness the penetration, in accordance with Shari’a,” writes Lisa Beyer.

And while all religions must grapple with how to integrate ancient texts, with their sometimes-outdated notions, into modern life, the Muslim world seems to have done far too little in this regard.

Take, for example, Islam’s attitude toward domestic abuse is found in the  Koran (sura 4:34), which has been “interpreted to say that men have ‘pre-eminence’ over women or that they are ‘overseers’ of women and that the husband of an insubordinate wife should first admonish her, then leave her to sleep alone and finally beat her,” as Beyer chillingly wrote.

Not much has changed in the decade or so since. It was only two years ago when Time magazine ran the horrific and now infamous cover picture of, Aisha, an Afghan woman with her nose and ears cut off by the Taliban for fleeing her abusive in laws.

There is no excuse for this kind of medieval behavior in the 21st century. And yet it goes on. As Riffat Hassan, professor of religious studies at the University of Louisville, told Beyer, “The way Islam has been practiced in most Muslim societies for centuries has left millions of Muslim women battered bodies, minds and souls.”

The Arab Spring, which Obama has celebrated, has hardly been a boon for women. In fact, quite the opposite. “For many Egyptian women, sexual harassment — which sometimes turns into violent mob-style attacks — is a daily fact of life,” reports the BBC. . . .

It seems, then, that the “revolutions” in the region have only empowered fanatics to take their misogyny further out into the open. . . .

Writes Mark Whittington for Yahoo, “It seems the Obama administration is capable of accusing Republicans of hating women for not wanting to see the Catholic Church hand out free birth control contrary to the Church’s doctrine. While it is doing this, it is treating with a terrorist group that has as its governing platform the imposition of Shari’a Law, which would send Egyptian women into lives of degradation and oppression.”

Worst of all is that thousands of Muslim women have suffered from female genital mutilation if they don’t comply with these strict rules or have been the victim of honor killings — murders conducted by spouses or family members in the event of misbehavior. There is a growing trend of honor killings  happening in the U.S., as well.

This, too, demands attention from the administration. But the silence has been deafening.

The real issue is the tolerance of the intolerant. If President Obama, many on the left and the media truly cared about women’s rights, they would acknowledge the real war on women instead of tip-toeing around it for political gain. A true champion of women’s rights stands up for all women, all of the time, not just when it’s expedient in an election year.

5 Muslim Men Arrested for Horrific Sexual Assault in Colorado

Islamic Crescent on US FlagWhen Islam is at war with a country such as the USA, that country’s women are fair game for rape for they are seen as jihad captives. It is sunna and was part of life for Mohammed and his warriors.  Rape is also a way to humiliate the Kafirs and reduce their standing in the community.

Colorado Springs police arrested five Iraqi men Tuesday in connection with what they called a “rare” and “horrific” sexual assault on a woman early July 22. The arrests included one man who was a central character in an Army’s sergeant’s memoir of an Iraq deployment.

Sarmad Fadhi Mohammed and Jasim Mohammed Hasin Ramadon were taken into custody on suspicion of sexual assault. Mustafa Sataar Al Feraji, Ali Mohammed Hasan Al Juboori and Yasir Jabbar Jasim were arrested on suspicion of accessory to sexual assault. All are in their 20s.

Lt. Howard Black, who heads the Police Department’s special victim’s unit, said the severity of the attack made it rare in the city, adding that the woman’s injuries could have been life-threatening.

“We don’t see these types of assaults typically in Colorado Springs,” he said.

Ramadon was featured in “A Soldier’s Promise,” a combat memoir by Army First Sgt. Daniel Hendrex  published in 2009 . . . . According to reviews, Ramadon encountered Hendrex’s soldiers in December 2003, and pleaded with them to arrest him in exchange for key information about local insurgents. . . Later, in exchange for his services, Hendrex helped Ramadon immigrate to the United States.

Saudi Woman Receives Death Threats for Driving Car

Manal al-Sharif A Saudi woman who publicly defied the country’s ban on female drivers has been forced to cancel a planned trip to the United States after receiving multiple death threats and learning that she is the subject of a fatwa issued by a fundamentalist Muslim cleric.

Manal al-Sharif became a global symbol of the struggle for gender equality in the Middle East after a video of her driving through the streets of Khobar was uploaded to YouTube last April, at the height of the Arab Spring. She was later arrested and imprisoned for nine days.

On Wednesday this week she had been due to be honoured for her high-profile activism at an awards ceremony in Washington organised by Vital Voices, a US-based pressure group which campaigns for women’s rights and has close ties to the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

But 48 hours before the event, organisers were told that Ms Sharif, a divorced single mother, had reluctantly decided to stay in Saudi Arabia, amid what appears to be growing fears for both her personal safety and that of her family.

“Asian” (Pakistani)Sex Gangs in the UK


 Islam in Europe has an interesting blog on Muslim sex gangs  in the UK from various British news sources that is certainly enlightening.

The worst enemies of Western women are the concepts of Political Correctness and Multiculturalism. These beliefs are chains around our minds that keep the discussion of the reasons for her victimization by Muslim men out of the public arena.  These beliefs become chains around the Western women that are detrimental to her mental, emotional and physical health. I hope these beliefs die a quick death before I do.

9 Muslim Men in Britain Convicted of Running a Sex Ring

A sex grooming gang which plied teenage girls with alcohol before raping them could have been stopped two years before their sickening crimes were finally uncovered.

As many as 47 vulnerable girls were given alcohol, gifts and money before being passed around to have sex with ‘several men a day, several times a week’.

At least one victim was forced to have sex with 20 men in one night when she was drunk, police said. Two became pregnant as a result of their horrifying ordeal – one of whom was only 13 and had an abortion.

Yesterday nine men, all but one originally from Pakistan, were facing lengthy jail terms after being convicted of a string of offences, ranging from rape to sex trafficking.

But it can be revealed that a golden opportunity to smash the ring was missed nearly four years ago after a 15-year-old girl told police she had been raped in 2008.

 Over the next two years, dozens of white teenagers were abused by older men in the gang, which was centred around takeaways in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.
