Recently, at his Columbia University appearance—an appearance to which he was actually invited by the university’s administration—Iran’s terrorist President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad spoke about Islam’s treatment of women. Despite all actual evidence to the contrary, Ahmadinejad had this to say: “Women in Iran enjoy the highest levels of freedom.” Really? Multiple videos of the true carnage suffered at the hands of those practicing Islam (one of which is included in the link below) show that women are treated far worse than other forms of chattel in Islamic-run countries. And—make no mistake. In these countries, women are considered to be the personal property of their male masters. Unlike other possessions, however, as slaves women are subjected to the very worst of sadistic and barbaric behaviors.
Women in Islamic-run countries are regularly and summarily beaten, disfigured and murdered if they commit the “crime” of offending their captors. The worldwide leftist press and—of all people—feminists refuse to either report seriously or comment on these outrages against half of humanity. Instead, liberals and leftists attack the democratic institutions and proponents who give them the right to protest. But, the same people from the same groups who vilify the ones who protect their speech freedoms refuse to condemn those who are working to destroy these same liberties—and humankind as a whole. And these same liberals and leftists (you know—the ostensible “tolerant and compassionate folk”) ignore the plight of women worldwide who are under Islamic control and barbarism. Do you think these treatments of women are merely deviations practiced by those who are abnormal in their observations of Muslimism? Well—let’s take a look.
With regards to Muslim behavior toward women, let’s go to Islam’s holy book—the Qur’an. The following are but, a few verses pertaining to the treatment of women in Islam:
• Surah 4:15 “If any one of your women is guilty of lewdness ...confine them until death claims them.” Note: This Surah is also a warning to women that the Islamic god Allah is not forgiving when it comes to them and they will suffer death. *But, note that the very next verse does forgive men for aberrant sexual behaviors.
• Surah 4:16 “If two men among you commit indecency (sodomy) punish them both. If they repent and mend their ways, let them be. Allah is forgiving and merciful.”
• Surah 4:34 “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them.”
Men are also allowed to falsely testify against their wives—with little to no proof whatsoever—and have said lies believed by Islam’s Shari’a court system. The Qur’an states: Surah 24:6-7 “As for those who accuse their wives but have no witnesses except themselves, let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies…” If a woman is raped in an Islamic-run country, it is the woman’s fault. She will be put to death in an “honor killing”, while the rapist goes free to commit other future rapes. Still US feminists remain silent and US leaders continue in their attempts to make us believe that Islam and Muslimism truly is a “peaceful” religion—just misunderstood. Perhaps it is for men. But, it surely is not for women. It appears that it never has been. With the exception of using them for sexual benefits and raising their children, women—if one is to believe Mohammad’s Qur’an—have no place on the planet and can be dealt with as Muslim males desire. Is Islam truly against the world’s women? Make your own decision after viewing the video.
