sfx-explosions-bombs copyCharges have been filed against a Muslim man (21), originally from the neighborhood of Issawia in Jerusalem, for threatening to blow up his pregnant wife with a bomb. The woman is Jewish and converted to Islam, according to a report on Erv Eilat News.

The couple moved to Eilat a year ago.

After getting into a fight in their apartment on Los Angeles Street, the man cursed and threatened his pregnant wife. The woman, fearing for her safety, pulled out a knife to defend herself. The husband took the knife away and hit her in the face.

The woman then escaped the apartment and went to stay with a friend.

Her husband found her two days later, and threatened to blow her up with a bomb.

Islamic Jihadis Stone Two Women to Death in Syria


StoningA cleric read the verdict before the truck came and dumped a large pile of stones near the municipal garden. Jihadi fighters then brought in the woman, clad head to toe in black, and put her in a small hole in the ground. When residents gathered, the fighters told them to carry out the sentence: Stoning to death for the alleged adulteress.

None in the crowd stepped forward, said a witness to the event in a northern Syrian city. So the jihadi fighters, mostly foreign extremists, did it themselves, pelting Faddah Ahmad with stones until her body was dragged away.

“Even when she was hit with stones she did not scream or move,” said an opposition activist who said he witnessed the stoning near the football stadium and the Bajaa garden in the city of Raqqa, the main Syrian stronghold of the Islamic State group.

The July 18 stoning was the second in a span of 24 hours. A day earlier, 26-year-old Shamseh Abdullah was killed in a similar way in the nearby town of Tabqa by Islamic State fighters. Both were accused of having sex outside marriage.

According to the Reliance of the Traveller, the go-to book on sharia law, the Islamic State jihadis were entirely within their right to stone these women if they committed adultery.

IS Jihadis Take Yazidis and Christians as Sex Slaves

scene-from-a-muslim-slave-market-of-white-women2-otto-pilny copyAccording to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand [jihad sex slaves]” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50)

The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50)

[ . . . ]

“Atrocious accounts of abduction and detention of Yazidi, Christian, as well as Turkomen and Shabak women, girls and boys, and reports of savage rapes, are reaching us in an alarming manner,” Ms. Bangura and Mr. Mladenov stated, pointing out that some 1,500 Yazidi and Christian persons may have been forced into sexual slavery….”

Sex slaves or wives?  The Washington Post offers a different take on this tragedy.

Although the WaPo news article differs from the others, I contend that all are true.  Many of the jihadis will take Yazidi and Christian wives if they convert AND many of them will use the young women as sex slaves.  Both actions are permitted by sharia law and, therefore, are permissible in the eyes of Allah and follow the sunna (the words and actions of Mohammed.)

 

Pakistani Man Stabs 25 Women in a Month

kA young man has stabbed at least 25 women this month in a small Pakistani town, police said on Monday, and many women and girls are afraid to leave their homes.

“Most of the incidents have happened after sunset, but some schoolgirls were also attacked while going back home after school,” said Haseeb-ul-Hassan, the spokesman for Sahiwal District in eastern Punjab province.

“We cannot confirm the total number of incidents, but it’s between 25 to 30.”

[. . . ]

Many victims who sought treatment have not reported the attacks because the police have a poor reputation and they are forbidden by tradition to speak to strange men. Police said that many women or girls now feared to go out at night or to school.

Violence against women is common in Pakistan and activists say several are murdered each day. Underfunded police rarely solve the cases, which can take years to work their way through congested courts.

Violence Against Women on Rise in Gaza

Protest against wife abuse.

“Ibtissam,” a 27-year-old woman from the town of Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza Strip, asked for a number of guarantees before beginning to talk, among them that her real name not be used and that her story not be relayed to organizations assisting battered women. Despite attempts to reassure her when she met with Al-Monitor in public, she kept looking behind her for fear that her husband or one of his relatives might see her.
[ . . . ]
Ibtissam is not the only battered wife in Gaza. Some 37% of married women in the Palestinian territories have been subjected to domestic violence by their husbands. Of these, 51% live in Gaza according to a 2012 study by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics. Speaking in hushed tones for fear that passersby might hear, Ibtissam recounted her story.

“My husband did not like what I cooked for dinner, so he punched me in the face, injuring my eye. I often get severely beaten for trivial reasons. I am cruelly insulted, but cannot find anyone to listen to my plight or help me overcome my predicament.”

“No one cares about me, and this increased the frequency of my husband’s physical assaults and verbal insults. He even allows his mother and sisters to hit me during familial disagreements.”
[ . . . ]
The Palestinian Center for Democracy and Conflict Resolution has recorded more than 400 cases of severe acts of violence against women. These include 16 murders during the past year in the Palestinian territories, a fact disclosed at the center’s Aug. 27 symposium, “The Role of the Media in Cases When Women Are Murdered.”

The frequency of these attacks is increasing because women prefer to remain silent. About 66% of battered women chose to remain quiet, while 37.7% of them leave their husbands and flee to their families. Only 0.7% approach women’s centers, according to the Bureau of Statistics study.

What kind of logic is it that says that the frequency of attacks increases because women don’t say anything?  It increases when the government adheres to Islamic law.

Also do the women prefer to remain silent or do they remain silent because they have no legal recourse due to the sharia law legalizing wife-beating?  This Islamic report deceives by ‘omission’ of the truth.

Pakistani Cleric Cuts Wife to Pieces for Refusing to Wear the Veil

Muslims Against Violence Against WomenA cleric cut his wife into pieces on Wednesday for refusing to wear a veil and sending their children to school, police said.

They said the body was recovered from near their house. They said they found his confession on the body and had also recovered the weapon he had used.

The body has been handed over to the family following a post-mortem examination.

A case has been registered against the confession-killer, who the police said had been missing.

Ahmad Aziz, father of the deceased Farzana Bibi, 36, said that she married Muhammad Sharif, 42, a resident of Bakkhal Bhir in Mumtazabad Colony.

They had three children.

Aziz said that Sharif led prayers at the neighbourhood mosque and also gave Quran lessons at their home. He said Sharif was short-tempered and would often beat up Farzana Bibi. He had been telling her to cover her face when she left the house.

Aziz said Farzana Bibi wore an abaya (gown), but did not want to cover her face.

He said they often quarreled over the matter.

Police said Aziz was informed about the incident by the police shortly after they found Farzana Bibi’s body. Police said it had first been seen by a neighbour, who informed the police.

Police said in his note, Sharif had confessed to killing Farzana Bibi.

He wrote that he had deemed his action the best way to “punish his wife for rebelling against Allah’s orders”. He wrote that he wanted all women to learn from their example. 

Afghani Police-woman Shot To Death

Woman Police Officer in Afghanistan Shot to DeathLieutenant Islam Bibi, who had survived death threats from her own brother to rise through the ranks, was shot as she left her home yesterday morning.

Omar Zwaak, spokesman for the governor of Helmand, said Lt Bibi had been attacked as she rode on a motorbike alongside her son-in-law in Lashkar Gah, the provincial capital.

“She was seriously injured and died of injuries later in the emergency ward in hospital,” he added.

Her struggle to be able to take a job outside the home was typical of the problems faced by many women in conservative, rural areas of Afghanistan.

The 37-year-old mother of three had been a role model for other women in a province that remains a hotbed of the Taliban insurgency and where few women are ever seen on the streets, and then only wearing a burka.

In an interview with the Telegraph earlier this year, she said: “My brother, father and sisters were all against me. In fact my brother tried to kill me three times.

“He came to see me brandishing his pistol trying to order me not to do it, though he didn’t actually open fire. The government eventually had to take his pistol away.”

Lt Bibi was a refugee in Iran when the Taliban overran Afghanistan in the 1990s. She returned in 2001, raising her family at home before joining the police nine years ago.

“Firstly I needed the money, but secondly I love my country,” she in April. “I feel proud wearing the uniform and I want to try to make Afghanistan a better and stronger country.”

Islamic States of the UNHCR Reject Elimination of Violence Against Women

Muslim Woman with Black Eye Holding a Koran

Islamic member states of the United Nations Council for Human Rights (UNHCR) rejected on Friday paragraphs violating the Islamic law in the council’s resolution on the elimination of all forms of violence against women, noting that the member states must make sure that their laws and national policies are consistent with the rejected demands.

The rejections include the paragraph, which gives women “the right to control matters concerning their sexual lives as well as their reproductive health without coercion, discrimination or violence.”

They also rejected the paragraph that allows performing judicial proceedings in cases of rape within marriage, the abolition of provisions that require the matching of certificates and allow the rapist to escape prosecution by marrying him to his victim as well as subduing victims of sexual violence to prosecution for moral crimes or slander.
[ . . . ]
It also urges the states to increase measures taken to protect women and girls from all violence forms, including sexual violence by addressing issues related to their safety and security through several means such as awareness, involvement of local communities, enacting laws to prevent crime, as well as the provision of infrastructure, public transportation and health facilities, street lighting and improvement of urban planning.

It’s the Sharia law that women can be beaten. How can Islam ever join humanity’s call for equality for females when they believe their doctrine and laws are from God and can’t be changed?

Pakistani Female Students Bombed on Bus

Pakistani Jihadists Kill Bus Full of Women StudentsMilitants in western Pakistan bombed a bus carrying women university students on Saturday and then seized part of the hospital where survivors of the attack were taken, killing at least 12 people, officials said. At least 19 were injured.

The gunmen in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province long plagued by sectarian violence, were holed up in the emergency ward of a hospital, engulfed in a firefight pitting militants against the security forces.

Television footage showed security forces surrounding the Bolan Medical Complex and a helicopter hovering overhead. The attack in resource-rich Baluchistan was Pakistan’s most lethal since the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif took office last week.

The initial blast gutted the bus, killing 11 students, and another explosion went off soon after at the hospital, the city’s largest. Television footage showed people fleeing the building in panic.

The jihadis are misogynists and think educating women is a waste of time.  Jihadis are sticklers for and observant of Islamic doctrine. The Koran and the sunnah of Mohammed tells them women are deficient in intelligence and should not go anywhere without a male family member as chaperone.

Narrated Abdullah bin Umar:  I heard the Prophet saying, “evil omen is in three things:  the horse, the woman and the house.”  Sahih Bukhari 4:52:110

Once Allah’s Apostle [Mohammed] went out to the Musalla . . . he passed by the women and said, “O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of hell-fire were you.”  They asked, “Why is it so?

. . . He replied, “You curse frequently and are ungrateful to you husbands.  I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion that you.”  Sahih Bukhari 1:6:301
