Bassam Tibi: Euro-Islam Doesn’t Have a Chance

Thanks to the Gates of Vienna

The following essay by the Syrian-German Islamic reformer Bassam Tibi was originally published by Die Welt. Many thanks to Brunhilde for the translation:

Young men who bring a culture of violence with them

by Bassam Tibi

The events in Cologne were just a prelude: Many Arab migrants bring very misogynistic social values to Germany. That makes it almost impossible for them to be integrated. A guest commentary.

Is there any connection between the attacks on New Year’s Eve in Cologne and the situation in Syria? The answer is: Yes, there is a connection and the common denominator is violence against women.

Many of my German discussion partners do not seem to understand the violence that is directed against women in a oriental patriarchal culture. In the orient, a woman is not considered an entity, but an object of a man’s honour. The violation of a woman is not viewed only as a sexual act and crime against the woman herself, but more as an act of humiliation of the man to whom she belongs.

In this barbaric war in Syria, that completely erroneously is called a “civil war” (no citizens, but rather ethno-religious collectives, are fighting each other in it), the Shiite-Alawite soldiers of the Syrian army rape women of the Sunni opposition as a method of warfare.

With rape, these Alawites are seeking to dishonour the men of the Sunni opposition. The Sunni “rebels” for their part do the same with Alawite women. It is a war of all against all with women as pawns.

Cologne was not an isolated case

As a Syrian from Damascus, I am astonished at the ignorance and naïveté of the Chancellor and her defence minister, who believe that they can end the war with conferences in Geneva and Munich. But this war should be categorized as a “protracted conflict” that will be with us for many years. It is a type of war that I call “an irregular not state-run war.”

Among the war refugees, there are not only victims of violence but also many perpetrators, and even numerous Islamists. Added to that is the fact that these predominantly young men aged 14 to 20 bring with them the culture of violence, including against women, from the Near East to Germany. New Year’s Eve in Cologne is just a demonstration of that, and no isolated case as our politicians like to pretend in order to downplay the significance of the matter.

Jordan says that the Muslim right not to be offended is more important than human rights of Jews

Thanks to the Elder of Zyion

Jordan signed the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights in 1976.

This covenant says

Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This right shall include freedom to have or to adopt a religion or belief of his choice, and freedom, either individually or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice and teaching.


This covenant indicates pretty clearly that Jews have the right to practice their religion on the spot that is the undisputed holiest place in Judaism.

But Jordan has again engaged  in a rhetorical attack on Jews who peacefully visit their holiest site:

The Jordanian government on Thursday condemned the “storming of Jewish extremists” of the Temple Mount under the protection of Israeli police so they wouldn’t be lynched.
The Minister for Media Affairs, government spokesman Mohammad Momanim, said in a press release that Jordan “strongly condemns these provocative acts that offend the sanctity of the holy place and the feelings of Muslims all over the world and we call on the Israeli authorities to stop it immediately.”

So the “feelings of Muslims” are more important than Jews having the basic human right to visit their holiest spot – let alone pray there.

Momani urged the international community to pressure Israel to adhere to fictional obligations to keep Jews off the Mount.

He condemned and rejected the actions of “Jewish extremists” and said that their quiet strolls are a “mockery of the importance of continued calm and an abuse of international efforts to re-launch serious negotiations between the Israeli occupation and the Palestinians.”

Here you can see those terrible “Jewish extremists” doing their storming this week. Prepare to be shocked at how provocative they are.

At the same time, Muslims erected a banner celebrating the founder of Hamas Sheikh Yassin on the Temple Mount.

No one condemned that.

To stop FGM, we must take as much pride in our principles and values as monsters like Jumana do in her theirs

A female genital mutilation horror in the Midwest.

Daniel Greenfield

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

Livonia, Michigan is known as Little Palestine. The Detroit suburb is famous for its anti-Israel meetings. You could go hear Mustafa Barghouthi, Omar Barghouti and Ali Abunimah without taking a long drive.

It’s also known for its shady doctors.

Dr. Murtaza Hussain was busted for letting unlicensed employees diagnose patients and write prescriptions. Dr. Waseem Alam and Dr. Hatem Ataya pleaded guilty in the nation’s largest Medicare fraud case totaling $712 million in false billings centering on Shahid Tahir, Muhammad Tariq and Manavar Javed’s Livonia medical firms. But what was going on at one Livonia clinic was far worse than the theft of millions. Anyone passing by at the right time could hear the screams of little girls.

We think of horrors like female genital mutilation as a terrible thing that happens over “there.” But as the implacable tide of Muslim immigration swept across Europe, “there” became the United Kingdom.

England recorded 5,700 cases of FGM in less than a year. France has jailed 100 people for FGM. An estimated 50,000 women in Germany have undergone FGM with a 30 percent boost due to the rise of Islamic migration in the last several years. In Sweden, it’s 38,000. And now, as American towns and cities are reshaped by Muslim migration, “there” is now right here. The terrible practice is in America.

Wife-Beating: Beautiful Blessing ‘Out Of Context’

Hizb ut-Tahrir domestic violence video denounced by Muslim leaders

If caught, Islamo-spokesturds resort to the usual BS about “English understanding” and the old “out of context” gobbledygook:

“You’re taking a revelation from God and you’re trying to apply an English understanding of that particular verse as a standalone verse, which is not what any scholar would do.

“You’re talking about how it applies in the everyday life of a woman, so what you’re trying to do is take an isolated verse and quote it out of context of where it’s supposed to be embedded in a holistic understanding … of male and female relationships in the Koran.” …

Sharia Councils and Sexual Abuse in Britain

by Khadija Khan

  • As bad as this is, there is an even darker side to the story: Under sharia law, the second husband is under no obligation to give his wife a quick divorce – allowing him to keep her as his virtual sex slave for as long as he wishes.
  • If one asks how all of this jibes with British law, the answer is that it does not.
  • The UK-based NGO, Muslim Women’s Network, penned an open letter — with 100 signatories — to the British government and Home Affairs Select Committee demanding that the Sharia Council be investigated to determine whether its practices adhere to British law. In response, the Sharia Council declared the letter to be “Islamophobic” and accused the Muslim Women’s Network of being an anti-Muslim organization.
  • It is British law, not sharia, law that protects Muslim individuals and couples, as it does any other citizen. Contrary to what apologists for this travesty say, the plight of Muslim women should be treated as an issue of human rights.

Haitham al-Haddad is a British shari’a council judge, and sits on the board of advisors for the Islamic Sharia Council. Regarding the handling of domestic violence cases, he stated in an interview, “A man should not be questioned why he hit his wife, because this is something between them. Leave them alone. They can sort their matters among themselves.” (Image source: Channel 4 News video screenshot)

The most recent scandal surrounding the sexual exploitation of Muslim women by Islamic religious leaders in the UK is yet further proof of the way in which Britain is turning a blind eye to horrific practices going on right under its nose.

A BBC investigation into “halala” — a ritual enabling a divorced Muslim woman to remarry her husband by first wedding someone else, consummating the union, and then being divorced by him — revealed that imams in Britain are not only encouraging this, but profiting financially from it. This depravity has led to many such women being held hostage, literally and figuratively, to men paid to become their second husbands.

In a fatwa session posted online, Kuwaiti sheikh Othman Al-Khamis cited the Quranic verse pertaining to wife-beating, and said: “The beatings must not be hard. It is more of a psychological beating, the purpose of which is to humiliate the wife.” He further explained that “he shouldn’t break her bones, and he shouldn’t beat her on the face.” A video of his statements was posted on his YouTube channel on January 31.

Sweden identifies truck attack suspect

LOOKING back, it’s almost quaint how united we all were following the slaughter of 3000 people in the US on September 11, 2001. In those simpler days, it was universally agreed that we might just have a problem with Islamic extremism.

The only holdouts were so-called 9/11 truthers, who simultaneously believed that then-president George W. Bush was a simpleton yet also capable of pulling off the greatest conspiracy in history. There are still some who insist Bush and his evil minions somehow loaded the World Trade Center towers with explosives and then set in train the events leading to 9/11.

Run a Google search on “controlled demolition” and prepare to enter a parallel universe of absolute madness. Among normals, however, the cause of 9/11 was clearly apparent: a bunch of crazed Osama bin Laden devotees took over four passenger jets and aimed them at targets throughout the US.

This was understood across the political spectrum. Leftist Christopher Hitchens, for example, had this to say a couple of months after 9/11: “I should perhaps confess that on September 11 last, once I had experienced all the usual mammalian gamut of emotions, from rage to nausea, I also discovered that another sensation was contending for mastery.

Police work at the scene after a truck slammed into a crowd of people outside a busy department store in central Stockholm on April 7. AFP

“On examination, and to my own surprise and pleasure, it turned out be exhilaration. Here was the most frightful enemy — theocratic barbarism — in plain view … Other and better people were gloomy at the prospect of confrontation. But I realised that if the battle went on until the last day of my life, I would never get bored in prosecuting it to the utmost.”

Hitchens continued the fight until his death 10 years later. But something strange has happened among many of his fellow leftists, and indeed throughout the community of civilised nations. Despite some 30,000 Islamic terrorist attacks since, at a rate of more than five per day, the world is now less inclined to face reality than it was 16 years ago.

The modern fashion is instead to turn away from reality and then applaud your own decency and virtue.

In Australia, one alleged media organisation will, these days, actually omit information about a murderous terrorist’s appearance if it hints at a fondness for Islam.

“I won’t go into reports about what the man identified by eyewitnesses as carrying a gun was wearing or what he looked like,” The Guardian’s Calla Wahlquist wrote in her coverage of Curtis Cheng’s shooting in 2015. She was referring to news that Cheng’s killer, Farhad Khalil Mohammad Jabar, had been wearing black robes.

Sweden:  Swedish Muslim Association Risks Losing State Funding Over Misogyny

The Muslim Association of Sweden (SFM) may lose state support for inviting lecturers whose controversial statements could be interpreted as the promotion of misogyny. For instance, SFM speakers taught that women were not allowed to go out without permission, wear perfume or show skin. The SFM retorted that its own board includes women.

Earlier, the Swedish tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet revealed that a lecturer invited by the SFM taught that women were not allowed to leave home without the permission of their husbands, as well as they must not use perfume, show skin or wear colored dresses. In another lecture, an imam said that 12-year-old girls who do not cover themselves end up in hell.

These controversial, to say the least, statements, which were perpetuated in a later-removed video on the SFM’s own YouTube channel and Facebook page, triggered a massive outcry in Swedish media and even provoked a condemnation from Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

Melton Housing development creating a ‘Muslim-only’ community

Welcome to Iqra Village, Australia’s first Muslim housing estate: ‘Faith-based’ neighbourhood in Melbourne features 75 new homes and its own mosque
  • Housing estate at Melton South in Melbourne will be marketed at Muslims
  • Iqra Village will be divided in 75 lots and targeting South Asian migrants
  • Developers have plans to build a mosque at centre of new neighbourhood
  • Vacant land is near where anti-Islamic protesters staged a violent rally

Developers of a new housing estate in suburban Melbourne are only targeting Islamic families in what has been described as one of Australia’s biggest faith-based developments.

Iqra Village, the residential project at Melton South in Melbourne’s west, will be divided into 75 lots and marketed towards South Asian migrants.

There are also plans to build a mosque at the centre of the neighbourhood where two houses have already been built.

Melton City Council have some explaining to do. It is against our laws to separate by race, religion or gender, so this development would be illegal if it was reserved for one group. Honestly I thought that Left wing “poitically correct” policies had been debunked based on the results thus far of segregating groups in society e.g. the public housing ghettos of the 1970s etc.

The vacant block of land is just a few kilometres from where Reclaim Australia protesters staged a violent rally last year over Islamic migration.

Australian Federation of Islamic Councils treasurer Keysar Trad told Nine’s A Current Affair that Muslims may want to live in the estate to be free of discrimination and misunderstanding. 

‘This particular venture is an indication there’s a feeling out there that there’s perhaps less acceptance of Muslims,’ he said.

‘A project of this nature will allow people to be able to develop a local place of worship or a local school without too many objections from neighbours. They won’t be getting in anybody’s way, it’s something within their local community.

“Wife-beating is “a beautiful blessing”, part II


There is a problem here – but not with the two women who made the video. The problem is with Islam and the Koran they were quoting.

Andrew Bolt, Herald Sun

Muslim apologists like Waleed Aly are scapegoating the Muslim women who made the video showing how the Koran instructs men to beat their wives. Politicians are also blaming the women because they don’t dare admit the real problem is the Koran itself, which the women quoted correctly.

The video:


Waleed Aly simply evades the issue in attacking the video:

THE Project host Waleed Aly says it is “infuriating” views exist within the Muslim community — even if they were largely radical groups — that men are allowed to beat their wives…

The video was shared online by the Women of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia Facebook group, an arm of a widely condemned radical Islamist group.

The woman leading the conversation, who is identified as Sydney teacher Reem Allouche, says a man is permitted to hit a woman as an act of discipline, and fellow panellist Atika Latifi, agrees.

“He is permitted, not obliged to, not encouraged, but permitted to hit her,” Ms Latifi says…

Aly rejected the suggestion the views were widely shared by Muslims.

“Well, of course, this is not OK. It is not supported. It is absolutely atrocious to hear that. Of course we believe that [it is wrong] in the Australian community … but it is exactly the same in the Islam community …”

Waleed Aly is wrong. He also is avoiding the key issue of the passage the women were discussing in the Koran: not just that men had a right to discipline their wives with a beating, real or symbolic, but that they were in the position of the authority over them.

The Koran is explicit:

“Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34

Got it? ‘If you fear disobedience’, it says. No other reason necessary.  Andrew Bold is using a softer translation:
