Â Melody Moezzi is a writer, activist, attorney and award-winning author.
Q: “How might the public have reacted in a different context, had Blair replaced the word “Islam” with “Christianity” or “Judaism”?”
One poster answers:
A: Well, when Christians and jews start flying planes into buildings, bomb marathons, and hack the heads off Â innocent soldiers, maybe you will hear a Christian and Jew used in that context.
Until then, get used to it, your “faith” is barbaric.
But for Muselmaniacs like Melody, reason doesn’t come into it:
Today, I’m going to tell you what it feels like to live with hate and hostility directed at you on a daily basis.
I’m going to tell you what it feels like to turn on the news and hear people repeatedly call your faith hateful and violent.
I’m going to tell you what it feels like to be vilified any time a man namedÂ Mohammed commits a crime.
I’m going to tell you what it feels like to wait at a subway station next to an advertisement calling you a barbarian.
I’m going to tell you what it feels like to find a death threat in your inbox.
Melody doesn’t provide any evidence of a “death threat in her inbox”. She must be a shiite because she’s full of it.
You are welcome to read the whole thing if you’re interested, but I think its far more interesting to point you to a rebuttal from another Muslim woman, who posted this:
Dear Melody Moezzi,
I am a Muslim woman and so are my daughters and friends.
We are very pleased that you are able to express an opinion openly critical of the British government, show your beautiful hair, wear make-up, appear in the national press and be the beneficiary of an educational system that allows you to publish a book.
Unfortunately, we have none of those privileges, because, you see, we live in a Muslim majority country.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like when, at age 14, you first discover the wonders of $exual love and romance, only to discover that your cli.toris has been hacked off in some primitive, barbaric Islamic religious ritual and you will never experience love the way Western women can.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like to know we will never get to wear the beautiful clothes women like you do, because we have to cover ourselves from head to toe to assuage the $exual and social insecurities of the men in your community.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like when you cannot even socialize with male friends because you will be called a sl.ut.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like when you need you husband’s permission to drive a car.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like when you wish to question or doubt your religion but can’t because doing so will subject you to public shame and even physical danger.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like when you have been forced into an arranged marriage with a man you find physically repulsive and who may even beat you.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like when you can’t read the books other women do, watch the TV other women do and have access to the internet like other women do, because you live in a totalitarian sh.ithole of a country that is run under Islamic law.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like when you can only vote the way your husband tells you.
We’re going to tell you what it feels like knowing that you can never accuse a male of wrongdoing because he will accuse you of adultery and you may even be stoned to death.
BUT MOST, MOST OF ALL, we’re going to tell you what it feels like to have some self-important, indignant woman who has been lucky enough to escape Islam sit in her air conditioned office in a non-Islam country and spout off about how “hurt” she feels about the religion that oppresses us being insulted.
IT MAKES US SICK.
If you want to be a public hero, please do it defending something that is not ruining our lives and the lives millions of other women like us.
