Rape in Islamic Culture


real-men-dont-rapeFive days before 9/11, a famous Norwegian social anthropologist (and Norway may well be the only nation on Earth where there is such a thing as a famous social anthropologist) instructed her countrywomen that the way to bring down the high number of rapes – most of which, even way back then, were already being committed by “non-Western immigrants” – was for them to stop dressing in a manner that Muslim men found provocative. Norway, she lectured, was steadily becoming “a multicultural society,” and Norwegian women, if they didn’t want to wind up being brutally ravished in an alleyway by some Pakistani gang, should choose their wardrobes appropriately.  Period.

That anthropologist, whose name is Unni Wikan, didn’t score any points that day for heroically championing women’s equality, but she was, at least, being honest. The rise in rapes in Norway – as throughout Western Europe – was almost entirely a product of Islamic immigration. That was a fact she didn’t attempt to disguise.

Then, however, came 9/11. And in the years since, there’s been a desperate effort by bien pensant types throughout Europe to deny that the ever-increasing incidence of rape on the continent has anything whatsoever to do with Islam. Some try to dismiss or explain away the numbers entirely; others grudgingly acknowledge them, while fiercely denying that there’s any Islamic connection at all; some, while admitting that a disproportionate number of rapists are immigrants, attempt to blame the problem on ethnic European racism, the idea being that immigrants grow so frustrated over their mistreatment that they resort to rape.

All of which is absurd to anyone who’s remotely aware of Islam teachings about sex and of the high incidence of rape in Muslim societies that is a direct consequence of those teachings. We’re talking about a religion that treats the male sex drive as a virtually holy phenomenon, and that allows men to have multiple marriages and divorce at will, even as it demands that females deny themselves even the most innocuous sorts of human contact in the name of preserving family honor – and that punishes a single infraction with death. In the view of Islam, when a man rapes an immodestly dressed woman, the rape isn’t his fault but hers; and when a Muslim rapes an infidel in the “House of War,” it’s recognized as a form of jihad. As forgiving as Islam is of virtually every imaginable heterosexual act that might be committed by a Muslim male, it’s equally unforgiving of a Muslim woman who happens to be caught alone, doing nothing whatsoever, with a male who’s unrelated to her, or who, for that matter, commits the inexcusable sin of being raped.

Islamic Extremists Kidnap Filmmakers in Philippines

Philippine-Islamist-flagIslamic extremists have kidnapped two Filipina Muslim filmmakers in the southern Philippines as they were working on a movie about the area’s impoverished residents, authorities and a friend of the victims say.

Members of the Abu Sayyaf group, which frequently kidnaps locals and foreigners in the south to extort ransoms, abducted the sisters as they were visiting strife-torn Jolo island on Saturday, said military officials on Monday.

“There were armed men who flagged their vehicle down and abducted them and took them to their hideout,” said Jolo Marine commander Colonel Jose Cenabre.

He said the women’s companions identified the leader of the kidnappers as Ninok Sapari, head of an Abu Sayyaf faction known for abducting local residents for ransom.

So far, there are no reports on the demands of the kidnappers, he added.

Linda Bansil, 35 and her sister, Nadjoua, 39, had been working on a film about Muslim coffee-growers in Jolo when they were taken, said Ledrolen Manriquez, chief of the Peace and Conflict Journalism Network, to which the women belong.

Seattle Jihadi Kidnaps and Pimps Teen Girls

Arabs-examine-white-sex-slaveOn any given night in Seattle, there are 1,000 young people with no safe place to sleep.  It’s estimated that one in three of them will be lured into prostitution within 48 hours of leaving home.

“The next thing you know, they’re in someone’s home who is requiring this of them for a safe place to sleep and from there the dark path begins,” said Melinda Giovengo, Executive Director of YouthCare.

It happened to a 16-year-old girl in West Seattle. She was kicked out of her house and a friend said she could stay with her and 32-year-old Yussuf Abdulle at an apartment in the 8400 block of Delridge Way SW.

Investigators said Abdulle made the girls have sex with different men three to seven times a day and drugged them with marijuana, ecstasy and methamphetamine. The victim told police Abdulle would sleep near the door of the apartment with a gun and told her there would be a price to pay if she tried to leave.

“Guns, beatings, the stories are pretty horrific of what happens to these young people to keep them under the control of these monsters,” Giovengo said. “Our biggest efforts have to be in preventing how young people end up in that situation.”

Muslim Man Beat and Slashed the Throat of his Sister-in-law Out of Shame

An unemployed and homeless man beat his sister-in-law with a dumbbell bar and cut her throat leaving her to bleed to death in the arms of her young children – out of shame at his lack of ‘status’ in the community.

Foyez Ahmed, 31, flew into a rage and beat 38-year-old Razu Khan before slashing her throat with a kitchen knife, severing her wind pipe and blood vessels, and fleeing the family home. 

He was starting a life sentence in jail today, ordered to serve a minimum 22 year prison term at Manchester Crown Court after pleading guilty to murder.

Bangladeshi Ahmed, who had no job, no money, no home and no prospect of marriage, had tried to ‘calm himself down’ by consulting the Koran, but ‘lost it’ after believing that Mrs Khan had laughed at him.

Three of Mrs Khan’s four children and her 13-year-old niece were upstairs when Ahmed attacked her and were alerted to what had happened by her screams.

Her 13-year-old daughter held her hand as she lay dying on the sofa while her 17-year-old son tried in vain to revive her.

She died in hospital from her injuries.

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.
