PVV publishes report on Violence against Women in Islam
Today, March 8th, on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV) published a report entitled “Geweld tegen vrouwen binnen de islam” (Violence against Women in Islam).
The report lists texts from the Koran and the Hadith which encourage and sometimes even command the use of violence against women.
As a result of mass immigration during the past decades, Islamic anti-female behavior has spread in Western societies. The report criticizes the attitude of Western intellectuals and politicians who turn a blind to this phenomenon out of political-correctness.
The report also devotes particular attention to the situation of Islamic women in the Netherlands – a country which has almost 17 million inhabitants, of which almost 1 million Muslims.
In the Netherlands:
- Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â There are almost 500 honor crimes each year, with on average one honor killing each month;
- Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Honor crimes are committed almost exclusively in an Islamic context;
- Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â In Amsterdam alone, between 200 to 300 Islamic women have been imprisoned in their homes by male relatives;
- Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Some 30,000 women in the country have suffered female genital mutilation. Every year, about 50 girls are mutilated in this way in the Netherlands;
- Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â In September 2010, of all women in women’s shelters, 26% were of Turkish origin, 24% of Moroccan origin, 27% of Iraqi origin, and 23% of various mostly non-Western) countries.
In an introduction to the report, PVV parliamentarians Geert Wilders and Joram van Klaveren state that in a civilized society it is no option to ignore this situation or abandon these women. “In order to permanently end this misery in the Netherlands, female Muslims will have to liberate themselves from the prison of Islamic violence and choose for freedom,” they write.

This Â is truly an opportunity of a lifetime for an author like Naomi Wolf to join a stealthy effort to dismantle the framework of American liberties while posing as yet another supposedly independent American player.
We’re confident Naomi Wolf is fully prepared to sacrifice her trademark feminist and internationalist principles to hold this position. This includes notÂ talking incessantly about her own vagina, as well as keeping quiet about female genital mutilation, arranged child marriage, honor killings, forced veiling, stoning for adultery, second-class status of women in Muslim countries, rape and domestic abuse, Islamic supremacism, human rights violations, Jew-hatred, and terrorism.
