Unfortunately, Islam abhors equality for women. Each year, in alliance with Sharia Law, thousands of Muslim husbands and sons kill their wives and daughters in accordance with “honor killings.” They behead them, strangle them, stone them and shoot them. If a Muslim woman suffers rape, Muslim men blame the woman. Then a father, husband or son may kill that woman for dishonoring the family. On average, over 20,000 Muslim women suffer death annually at the hands of Islamic honor killings. (Source: United Nations “Honor Killings in Islamic Countries”)
Islam also mandates an ancient ritual called ‘female genital mutilation’. This custom, performed on their young girls, cuts and mutilates the vital sexual being out of the woman, usually before age nine. The butchery proves painful with no anesthetic and devastating for a lifetime for the woman! In some cases, the child dies from infections from the procedure carried on with crude instruments such as glass or razor blades. After the operation, she cannot enjoy any intimate fulfillment for the rest of her life.
According to Sharia Law, Muslim women found guilty of some error in personal conduct may be stoned to death. Muslim women cannot vote, drive cars or leave their homes without a family male escort. They must cover their bodies and heads with a burka. In many parts of the Middle East, they must cover their faces completely while in public. You’ve seen it on TV!
In effect, they must bow to the total subjugation of Muslim men. They cannot speak nor may they enjoy a voice in their societies. They must defer to men in public and private at all times. A Western person might call it misogyny in the extreme.
Brutal aspects of Sharia Law from the Koran:
- Husbands may hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear high-handedness in their wives. The Quran in Sura 4:34 says: “If you fear high-handedness from your wives, remind them, then ignore them when you go to bed, then hit them. If they obey you, you have no right to act against them. Allah is most high and great.” In the United States, this action would be considered assault and battery, as well as wife abuse: punished by a fine and jail time.
- A man may be polygamous with up to four wives. The Quran in Sura 4:3 says: “And if you be apprehensive that you will not be able to do justice to the orphans, you may marry two or three or four women whom you choose.” Such behavior stands in violation of all U.S. laws. No one in the United States may marry two, three or four women.
- Arranged marriages and marrying anyone under the age of 17 violates U.S. laws and most state laws. In Sharia Law, mature men are allowed to marry prepubescent girls. The Quran in Sura 65:1: “Prophet, when you divorce women, divorce them for their prescribed waiting-period and count the waiting-period accurately. And if you are in doubt about those of your women who have despaired of menstruation, their waiting period is three months, and the same applies to those who have not menstruated as yet.” Having sex with anyone under 17 in the United States stands as statutory rape and violates U.S. law. In Sharia Law, men may consummate sex with girls nine to 12.
- A husband has sex with his wife, as a plow goes into a field. The Quran in Sura (Chapter) 2:223 says: “Your women are your fields, so go into your fields and plow them, whichever way you like.” Within the United States, a woman has the right not to be mistreated during intimacy. She stands equal in a court of law, but Sharia Law, her standing remains only half that of a man. A woman is a man’s property according to the Quran.
The oppression of women that Islam advocates not only disturbs Americans, but also stands in direct contrast with everything that Western civilization stands for when it comes to the rights of women.
“Immigrants devoted to their own cultures and religions are not influenced by the secular politically correct façade that dominates academia, news-media, entertainment, education, religious and political thinking today,” said James Walsh, former Associate General Counsel of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. “They claim the right not to assimilate, and the day is coming when the question will be how can the United States regulate the defiantly unassimilated cultures, religions and mores of foreign lands? Such immigrants say their traditions trump the U.S. legal system. Balkanization of the United States has begun.”
Muslim Honor Killings In 21ST Century America
With Islam gaining an ever-greater foothold in America, we will see more and more advocates for Sharia Law. That which most Americans find distasteful and barbaric—already manifests in the United States with seven million Muslims. We will see violent treatment of more and more women and suffer more and more court cases of Muslim men as they kill their wives and daughters for disobeying them.
Fox News, January 1, 2008 reported a Muslim honor killing in Garrett, Texas when a 12 year old girl and her sister called 911, screaming, “My dad shot me; I am dying.” She and her sister died before an ambulance arrived. Reason: father didn’t like them wearing western jeans and blouses. “Honor Killing in Texas” by Robert Spencer, 01/08/2008. “Amina Said, 18, and her sister Sarah, 17, smile happily in one widely circulating photo, and Amina is wearing what looks like a sweatshirt bearing the name “AMERICAN.” But their fate may have been the herald of a new, disquieting feature of the American landscape: honor killing. Amina and Sarah were shot dead in Irving, Texas, on New Year’s Day. Police are searching for their father, Yaser Abdel Said, on a warrant for capital murder.”
In Clayton County, Georgia, January 26, 2009, a Pakistani immigrant father, Chaudry Rashid strangled his daughter for not accepting his choice of a husband. She wanted a divorce. She was 14 when she died. “Man Accused Of Killing Daughter For Family Honor” by Jamie Tarabay of NPR. “Honor killings are old rites of murder within families, committed because of some perceived dishonor or shame. The United Nations estimates around 5,000 deaths occur each year — mostly of women, mostly in South Asia and the Middle East.”
In New York, February 16, 2009, FOX News, Joshua Rhett Miller reported, “The estranged wife of a Muslim television executive feared for her life after filing for divorce last month from her abusive husband,” her attorney said — and was found beheaded Thursday in his upstate New York television studio. Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37, was found dead on Thursday at the offices of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, N.Y., near Buffalo. Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, has reportedly been charged with second-degree murder. “She was very much aware of the potential ramification of her filing for divorce might have,” said attorney Elizabeth DiPirro, whose law firm represented Aasiya Hassan in the divorce proceeding. “But she wanted to proceed despite the potential for it to erupt.”
February 19, 2013, the New York Daily News reported Islamic violence in Buena Vista, New Jersey: “Cops arrested Muslim Yusuf Ibrahim, 28, of Jersey City on Sunday after detectives found the bodies of the two men, aged 25 and 27, behind a home in Buena Vista Township. Their severed heads and hands were discovered at a separate burial site. The investigation into the grisly murder began Thursday following reports of suspicious activity at the Buena Vista home. Cadaver dogs located the bodies, which both suffered a single gunshot wound to their chests.” (Source: New York Daily News, 2/19/13)
October 12, 2016, Cleveland, Ohio, “Rocky River father executes his own daughter” by Cory Shaffer. “The city prosecutor here said the 63-year-old father charged in his daughter’s death “executed” the woman by shooting her twice in the head as she slept. Prosecutor Michael O’Shea said during an arraignment hearing Thursday in Rocky River Municipal Court that authorities are not comfortable with Jamal Mansour being anywhere outside a jail cell. Mansour faces murder, felonious assault and domestic violence charges in the death of his 27-year-old daughter, Tahani Mansour.”
Islamic Law dominates its adherents with fear and futility. If a drunken Muslim drives over five people resulting in their deaths, he will be arrested for breaking of the law. But Muslims call it, “Allah’s will” and will not condemn him. The reason you heard nothing from Muslims in America concerning the Fort Hood massacre stems from the fact that their belief system says that Major Hasan followed “Allah’s will.” If they question Allah’s will, they will become non-believers and subject to brutal consequences from Allah.
