The Myths of Islam – Islam Respects Women

The Myths of Islam – Islam Respects Women

Thanks to the RoP via Jawa Report

Another common myth about the ‘Religion of Peace’:

The Myth:

The Qur’an places men and women on equal foundation before Allah. Each person is judged according to his or her own deeds. Women have equal rights under Islamic law.

The Truth:

Merely stating that individuals will be judged as such by Allah does not mean that they have equal rights and roles, or that they are judged by the same standards.

There is no ambiguity in the Qur’an, the life of Muhammad, or Islamic law as to the inferiority of women to men despite the efforts of modern-day apologists to salvage Western-style feminism from scraps and fragments of verses that have historically held no such progressive interpretation.

After military conquests, Muhammad would dole out captured women as war prizes to his men. In at least one case, he advocated that they be raped in front of their husbands. Captured women were made into sex slaves by the very men who killed their husbands and brothers. There are four Qur’anic verses in which “Allah” makes clear that a Muslim master has full sexual access to his female slaves, yet there is not one that prohibits rape.

Muslim Women

Update:

Muslim Woman on Fire:

Afghan women are immolating themselves while Western journalists tip-toe around use of the words ‘Muslim’ and ‘Islam’.

It’s a Crime to be a Woman in Iran:

“Even a suntan constitutes a crime against Islam.”

Terrorizing Muslim Women

Nonie Darwish/Frontpage

There is an article floating all over the Internet, Joys of Muslim Women,” which discusses the horrific truth about how Islam legally treats women. The article claims to have been written by me, but that is false:  I am not the author. Let me use this occasion, however, to set a few matters straight:

The silence is deafening around the world in regards to the inhumanity and brutality of Sharia towards women. Most of the activism against stoning, flogging and abuse of women under Sharia is heard from former Muslim women, like myself, and a few others in the West who dare to expose the truth.

"Women's rights are human rights"- but not for the Muslim POTUS

  • Egypt Bans Marriage to Israelis:  “Egyptians married to Israelis are dangerous to Egypt’s national security, acting in ways that contradict the constitution of their country and Islamic laws-hmm, me thinks Israeli women who marry Arabs are dangerous to Israel’s national security.  What say you?

    Obama throws women under the bus

    Obama is not in favor with at least one blogger at the generally reliably dhimmi Economist. “Next time he would do better to remember, as the secretary of state famously put it, that women’s rights are human rights.” Indeed.

    “Throwing women under the bus,” from The Economist Democracy in America blog, June 5 (thanks to JW):

    Caroline Glick is unimpressed:

    He spoke of the need to grant equality to women without making mention of common Islamic practices like so-called honor killings, and female genital mutilation. He ignored the fact that throughout the lands of Islam women are denied basic legal and human rights. And then he qualified his statement by mendaciously claiming that women in the US similarly suffer from an equality deficit. In so discussing this issue, Obama sent the message that he couldn’t care less about the plight of women in the Islamic world.

    So, too, Obama spoke about the need for religious freedom but ignored Saudi Arabian religious apartheid. He talked about the blessings of democracy but ignored the problems of tyranny.

    In short, Obama’s “straight talk” to the Arab world, which began with his disingenuous claim that like America, Islam is committed to “justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings,” was consciously and fundamentally fraudulent. And this fraud was advanced to facilitate his goal of placing the Islamic world on equal moral footing with the free world.

    Muslim Woman wants the right to wear burka, "just like American women"

    Female member of Muslim Brotherhood claims movement “would give more freedom for all aspects of Egyptian society, including women”

    • Taking brainwashing to new hights:

    Nor does it end there; according to her, “Islamic law would provide benefits for women similar to those of American women, such as equality between the genders … and the ability to choose what to wear without discrimination.” Obviously, she has another Islamic law in mind.

    “A Woman in the Muslim Brotherhood,” from Jacksonville.com, via JW

    The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt would give more freedom for all aspects of Egyptian society, including women, if the movement achieved power in the country, a female member of the group said.

    * Yep. The freedom of the burka. How good is that?

    Auckland Muslim Women: Nowhere To Run, Nowhere To Hide…

    Women refuse refuge because of nearby mosque

                                    

    The Qur’an sanctions the beating of disobedient women (4:34). In one New Zealand town, those who want to escape this abuse are afraid to do so because a mosque is next door to the shelter, and they could be recognized. Don’t these battered Muslim women know that Islam teaches peace and tolerance?

    Wife-beating in Islam

    * Some seem to like the rough stuff:


    Poll: 70% of Israeli Arab women think slaps are not domestic abuse

    Interesting that one of the first complainants about this post is a Muslim female who claims that there is plenty of wife-beating going on in Australia. That may be true, but we have laws against it and we have plenty of help for abused spouses, wereas Islam prescribes the practice. These arguments are tiresome….

    By Ruth Sinai, Haaretz Correspondent

    Some 70 percent of Arab women in Israel believe women who are pushed, slapped or struck by their male partners are not victims of domestic violence, according to a poll conducted by the Na’amatwomen’s organization.

    The organization conducted the survey to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

    Some 73 percent believe women whose partners curse or humiliate them are not victims of violence.

    Asked whether they agree with the claim that “sometimes a man acting violently toward a woman is justified and she understands this,” 23 percent of the respondents said yes, compared to 71 percent who said they did not.
