Islam Elevates Women

Islam: where subjugation is called elevation and the rationalization is as pervasive as the denial.


Married Woman and Other Slaves (Islam Q&A/Fartwa)

“The woman does not have the right to refuse her husband, rather she must respond to his request every time he calls her.” (And that isn’t the worst part of this fatwa).

Muslima Drops Rape Charge After “Enormous Emotional Pressure” from Muslim Community

Pamela Geller:

My favorite part of the “big lie” is when they tell the kafir how Islam empowers women (engulfed in cloth coffin). This reminds me of the case in New Jersey where the judge let the Muslim husband off for raping his wife citing …..Islamic (sharia) law (more on that here).

Judge concerned after woman who was raped by husband drops case after community pressure Exposing Islam (Scottish Infidel)

A judge condemned a Muslim community today for putting ‘enormous emotional pressure’ on a wife to drop rape charges against her husband. Judge Simon Newell said locals from the woman’s mainly Asian [not Japanese: Muslim] neighbourhood had impeded police and prosecutors because they wanted to protect the family’s honour. The Asian [Not Chinese: Muslim}  wife, 32, had been due to testify against her 34-year old husband before a jury at Burnley Crown Court after she accused of him of raping her twice. The husband - who cannot be named – had a conviction for assault causing actual bodily harm against his wife and one for a sexual offence against another woman. He is already on the Sex Offender Register until September 2014.  (More)

  1. When are the British Asians (Japanese etc.) going to stand up and complain about the euphemism.
    Stand up and say “We are not muslim!”

  2. A sad sorry state of affairs. Still, it is better that they rape their own, than one of ours. However we should never forget, no matter how much contempt we have for islam, that the biggest victims are the muslims themselves. It is for that reason that I loathe the converts the most. In second place come the apoligists. For the majority of muslims I feel pity, but not enough pity that I want to share my country with them.

  3. Lebanon Sunni clergy reject domestic abuse law

    They rape their own too. Should we care?


    BEIRUT — Lebanon’s highest Sunni Muslim authority on Friday rejected a bill aimed at protecting women against domestic violence and marital rape, saying it would lead to the demise “of the family as in the West.”

    “Islam is very aware of and concerned with… resolving problems of poor treatment… but this should not happen by cloning Western laws that encourage the breakdown of the family and do not suit our society,” said the influential Dar al-Fatwa in a statement on its website.
    Dar al-Fatwa also slammed as “heresy” a clause in the bill that criminalises marital rape, accusing those behind the draft law of “inventing new types of crimes.”
    “This will have a negative impact on Muslim children… who will see their mother threatening their father with prison, in defiance of patriarchal authority, which will in turn undermine the moral authority” of fathers, it said.
    “We must continue to follow sharia (Islamic law) as concerns the Muslim family,” it added.
    The bill, drafted by feminist organisations, lawyers and forensic experts, was approved by Lebanon’s cabinet in 2010 and is currently under study in parliament.
    Should it be passed, the law would come under the penal code — under which cases are referred to a criminal court — rather than personal status laws, which are ruled on by religious authorities in multi-confessional Lebanon.
    The bill criminalises marital rape and calls for police intervention should a woman notify authorities of abuse by her husband or another family member.
    If found guilty, defendants would have to undergo rehabilitation or face prison should they fail to do so.
    Domestic abuse and harassment continue to be taboo in Lebanon, considered the most liberal country in the largely conservative Arab world, with very few women filing complaints as police generally turn a blind eye and send the victims home.
