While the Democrats falsely accuse the Republicans of waging a “war on women” they completely ignore the real, genuine war against women and women’s rights.
Radical Islam has been waging a war against women for a very long time. In many Islamic nations,women are not allowed to drive, get an education, work, dress as they choose, or speak to whom they choose. Then there are the “honor killings” in which women, many of them teens are butchered by their own families for normal activities for young women in the West. And just where IS the outrage from the Left? Sure, they can claim oppression unless the taxpayers pay for their birth control, but do Feminists in America care how Radical Islam treats women? If they do care, it is hard to tell. Certainly their silence is deafening!
Some examples of what, apparently does not upset Feminists
Banning of clothing like “short skirts”
INDONESIA’S religious affairs minister believes miniskirts are pornographic and should be banned under the country’s tough new anti-porn laws.
In comments endorsed by the country’s leading Islamic advisory body, Suryadharma Ali said ”one [criterion of pornography] will be when someone wears a skirt above the knee”.
Dr Suryadharma, leader of the United Development Party, was appointed earlier this month to run Indonesia’s anti-porn taskforce, announced and supported by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
Dr Suryadharma said that, before deciding what the taskforce would ban as pornography, it would consult widely to come up with ”a set of universal criteria”.
”Pornography is something that we can feel … but we have to make the criteria,” he said, adding that wearing miniskirts would qualify. His comments were backed by the Indonesian Ulema Council , representing all Indonesia’s Islamic groups.
”According to Islamic sharia [law], women not only have to wear long skirts but they have also to cover up all the private parts of their body,” deputy secretary of the council’s fatwa commission, Aminudin Yakub, told news website Detik.com.
Then there are the “honor”killings, which are nothing more than cold-blooded murder,and no,not all of those happen in far away nations. Some happen here
I posted earlier today about what may very well be an honor killing in California (here). I found the daughter’s interview to be fake and strange. No tears, no emotion, bad drama. The police are saying that other evidence found during the investigation has them convinced that the killing was an isolated incident that poses no danger to other Iraqis. The family has called it a hate crime and the Muslim Brotherhood operatives have been feeding the lie from their propaganda mills that media so readily eats up.
The police have executed a search warrant at the Alwaladi home.
Al Arabiya has published this startling interview with the family. How did they know so much? Read it.
“My wife was a victim of xenophobia,” Alwadi’s widower Qassem al-Hamidi told Al Arabiya in a phone interview Tuesday. Hamidi said he and his wife are both from the city of al-Samawa in the governorate of al-Muthana in southern Iraq.
“We got married in a refugee camp in Saudi Arabia.”
Hamidi and Alwadi had five sons and daughters, aged 17, 16, 13, 12 and eight.
Hamidi, 48, said he could not go on talking and explained that he was in a bad state before passing on the telephone to his wife’s cousin Hussein Alwadi.
“I saw her body in the dinning room a few minutes before the police arrived,” her cousin told Al Arabiya.
He said the murderer snuck into the house on Wednesday morning from the back garden.
“The garden has no fence so he was able to break the glass of the kitchen window right away and apparently he did so without making a noise.”
Hussein added that the attacker then reached for the window handle, opened it, and got inside.
“He did so after watching Shaima’s husband drive away with four of the children he was taking to school. Only Shaima and her eldest daughter Fatima stayed in the house. Fatima was asleep.”
The murderer, Hussein recounted, saw Shaima in the dinning room and attacked her with an iron rod or a spanner.
“He first hit her on her forehead then on her right ear. The third strike was on the back of her head. This was followed by five fast and consecutive strikes on her head and shoulders.”
Really? How could they know that?
How indeed. But, there are so many more “honor”killings
LARKANA: March 30, 2012. (Nazir Siyal) Two women were killed under Karo Kari (Honor Killing) here in Ratodero city on Friday.
According to the reports, an 18 year young lady Nadia Jalbani was killed by his relative under Karo Kari in Bappar Muhalla of Ratodero city, while another woman Shehnaz Jalbani (42) also found dead from her house in Bhutta Wandh Ratodero city on Friday morning.
Of course not all of these “honor” killings succeed
A fisherman saved the life of a young Egyptian woman after her parents threw her into the Nile River for divorcing an abusive, elderly husband, police said.
Women’s rights groups in Egypt said they are working with authorities to gather more information about the attempted honor killing, Bikyamasr.com reported Wednesday.
“If this is really what happened, then it shows there is a lot of work to counter honor violence in this country, where women and girls are killed because, simply, they are women,” said Nora Tarek, a women’s rights researcher in Cairo.
The young woman initially refused to marry the elderly man but later bowed to family pressure, Bikyamasr.com reported.
Her parents tossed her into the river when she returned home after divorcing him.
Last year, a 22-year-old Egyptian woman was found dead on a coastal road with a noose around her neck. A family member said the woman was killed by her brother for leaving home with a stranger.
Where is Sandra Fluke? Where is Gloria Steinem? Where is the Feminist outrage? Shouldn’t they be screaming at the tops of their lungs over this type of abuse?
ISNA Canada, located in Mississauga ON is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and perhaps Canada’s leading Muslim organization. So if they’re selling a book that states beating your wife can save a marriage well then you just know you’re gettin the unadulterated, authoritative Full Muhammad skinny.
According to The Muslim Marriage Guide, available for purchase on the ISNA Canada site, husbands are advised that
Put together, all these sources [from the Koran and hadith] suggest that beating, if it has to be done at all, should be a last resort to punish a wife for some major sin, such as adultery. It is the final manifestation of the husband’s authority, not the first; a deterrent aimed at holding the marriage together.
So a “beating” is the way to hold a bad marriage together? Good to know. Here in Kafirland the “last resort” usually consists of heading off to a marriage counselor. But, hey, maybe a “last resort” beating is more effective–and less expensive.
And then there are forced marriages for little girls
Up to 400 children in the past year have been coerced into or threatened with marriage – including a girl aged just five.
She is the youngest victim in Britain, according to the Home Office’s Forced Marriage Unit.
The young age of victims was disclosed as ministers consider whether to bring in new laws to make it possible to prosecute families who compel children to marry.
Selling little girls to pay off debts?
Again, while the Left plays politics, they ignore the real war against women.
