Islam vs Women

Muslims believe very strongly in the inferiority of women, and they take every opportunity to prove it.  This page contains news and commentary about so-called "honor killings" and other ways that Islam treats women like livestock.  These incidents occur in the U.S., Canada and England, yet the great feminist leaders — the cowards! — are all totally silent.  One would think that the feminists would have the loudest voices in support of a war that brought democracy to Iraq and allowed women to vote — and girls to attend school — for the first time.  Even in a time of relative peace, the continuing practice of "honor killing" is not something to keep quiet about.



Women try on hijabs at Boston College to show Islam doesn't oppress women.  "A lot of people want to stereotype and say that Islam oppresses women and makes them cover their hair, or something like that," said the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Student Association's Ahad Arshad.  Why, how could anyone get the idea that Islam oppresses women and makes them cover their hair?  It's inconceivable!  I do wonder, however, when Boston College, that fine Catholic school, will be holding a commemoration in honor of Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it.  When will Boston College be celebrating the memory of Aqsa and Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn't wearing a hijab?  And of the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; and of Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; and of Amira Osman Hamid, who faces whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; and [...]

Islam encourages wife beating.  In Islam, there are several rules for beating your wife.  For example:  Don't beat her so hard that she bleeds.  Don't beat her where the bruises will be visible.  You can punch her in the head but not the face.

9/11 mastermind complains to Obama about Muslim 'oppression'.  Notorious 9/11 architect Khalid Sheik Mohammed has given outgoing President Barack Obama his own personal send-off — a whiny letter.  The al Qaeda honcho, imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay while awaiting a death-penalty trial, scribbled a 2014 missive about Muslim "oppression" by the US to the commander-in-chief, which was finally delivered to the White House on Monday [1/16/2017], the Miami Herald confirmed.  It was not known if Obama had read the letter and, if he had, what his reaction was, the newspaper said.  Mohammed, 51, was one of the masterminds behind the 9/11 attacks that killed 3,000 people in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania in 2001.

Germany — where mocking headbag-wearing Muslim women could get you thrown in jail.  Nice to know there are still some Germans with a sense of humor in the midst of the never-ending Muslim invasion.

Obama's Muslim invaders threaten to taser bikini-clad girls unless they cover up.  Two Muslim supremacist savages whom Obama imported at American taxpayer expense, pointed a taser gun at an American family because they were offended that two young girls were wearing bikinis at a swimming pool.  The only reason they didn't fire it was because they knew they were being filmed.

French car plant had to close because of Muslims.  The deputy-mayor of Drancy and president of the UDI said this Tuesday that the closure of the car factory in 2013 was associated "in part" with "religious demands at work".  Contacted by "Marianne" [news magazine], the PSA Group does not want to make "any commentary" on this point, while recalling the economic reasons for this closure.  The UDI deputy mayor of Drancy, Jean-Christophe Lagarde, left a little bomb this Tuesday January 3 on France Info.  Asked about communitarian trends associated with Islam — such as the fact that women are no longer welcome in the cafes in certain districts — the Seine-Saint-Denis elected official declares first of all that "religion has nothing to do with work".  Before revealing what, according to him, is another example of the trend:  "There were difficulties, including in my district, for example in Aulnay-sous-Bois.  It was never stated but the PSA closure was also partly associated with the omnipresence of religion and the fact that there were religious demands at work, work stoppage, loss of productivity, and in PSA's choice to close Aulnay, that was also a factor."

Taliban behead woman for shopping without her husband, officials say.  A young woman has reportedly been beheaded by a group of Taliban militants after visiting a market in northern Afghanistan.  The horrific act allegedly took place in the remote village of Larri in Sar-e pul province on Monday [12/26/2016] by a group of armed men believed to be linked to the Islamic extremist group.  Provincial Governor spokesman Zabiullah Amani said the 30-year-old woman was apparently targeted because she "went to the city alone without her husband", the Nation reported.

Pre-teen Nigeria bomber detonates early, second bomber lynched.  One person was seriously hurt when a pre-teen suicide bomber detonated her explosives early during an attack in Nigeria on Saturday [12/31/2016], and an angry crowd captured another female bomber and lynched her, AFP reported.  No one had claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred near a food vendor selling noodles around 9:30 p.m.; however, the incident resembled the type of assault typically used by the Boko Haram terror group.  Two girls under the age of 10 had blown themselves up in December in attacks that injured 19.

Girl Dies From FGM; Judge's Sentence:  Suspended Jail Terms.  An Egyptian family took their twin 17-year-old girls to a public hospital in Suez — yes, a governmental hospital and not a butcher's shop — where a doctor, anesthesiologist and nurse opened their legs, examined their genitalia and began cutting.  Mercilessly.  The two girls were screaming, one after the other in the same room.  The anti-female genital mutilation law in Egypt law stipulates that genital cutting is a crime against an individual's honor.  However, in Egypt, the reality is very different from the letter of the law.

Muslim 'rapes co-worker for 5 days to make her convert'.  In a horrific case of misplaced courtship, a 30-year-old Muslim systems engineer was arrested in India and charged with kidnapping and rape after he abducted a former colleague and held her for five days to force her to convert to Islam and marry him.  The 27-year-old woman, who has not been named, rejected Syed Emad Hasan's offer of matrimony after she explained her family does not allow inter-religious marriage.

Police Hand Out 6000 Rape Alarms for New Year's After Migrant Attacks.  The interior ministry said Tuesday [12/20/2016] that officers will be distributing the devices in the run up to the festive celebrations in the capital Vienna, Welt reports.  "It's a national campaign aimed primarily at women on New Year's Eve," ministry spokesman Karl-Heinz Grundboeck told AFP.  When activated, the gadgets will emit a shrill sound aimed at deterring potential attackers and attracting help, Mr. Grundboeck explained.

Five girls were killed for dancing in Pakistan.  Then the story took an even darker twist.  Even in Pakistan, where hundreds of "honor killings" are reported every year, this case was extreme.  According to court filings and interviews with people who investigated it, the families confined the girls for weeks, threw boiling water and hot coals on them, then killed them and buried them somewhere in the Kohistan hills.  Later, when investigators appeared, relatives and community leaders insisted that the girls were still alive and produced a second set of similar-looking girls to prove it.  They even disfigured one girl's thumbprints so she couldn't be checked against the identity of the victim she was supposed to impersonate.

Double Honor Killing:  Canadian Muslim Stabs His Two Sisters to Death.  The enemedia and the elites assign mental illness to Islamic violence, sharia enforcement.  "Mental illness" sanctions Muslim men to execute women who are judged to be in violation of Islamic law.  In every case of jihad and sharia violence, we are admonished and warned not to "rush to judgment," but law enforcement and media elites immediately rush to call it insanity.  The Ottawa Police pronounced the perpetrator insane at a press conference even as they lay criminal charges of murder?  Talk about undermining your own case.  If the suspect is mentally ill, then he is not culpable, and criminal charges should not have been laid.

Germany: Police to deploy 10x more police for NYE celebrations - to deter Muslim rapists.  Cologne will deploy TEN times the number of police officers it had on the streets last December at its 2016 New Year's Eve celebrations.  Officials are determined to avoid at all costs a repetition of the disgraceful scenes of the last day of the year in 2015 when mobs of immigrant men sexually assaulted and robbed hundreds of women in and around the main railway station.  Cologne released details of its security plan for the festivities on Monday with the highlight being a deployment of 1,500 police officers.

Saudi woman who faced death threats for removing hijab could get lashed instead.  A young woman who received death threats after going out without her full-body dress in Saudi Arabia now faces being lashed after she was arrested.  The woman, identified as Malak Al Shehri, shared a photograph of herself without a hijab or abaya — a traditional body covering — on a street in the capital city of Riyadh.  Al Shehri sparked fury on social media after she went out in public in the conservative capital, with some even calling for her execution.

France's No-Go Zones:  Women fight back after being banned from streets by Muslim men.  French women have launched a fightback to reclaim areas of the country turned into no go zones by Muslim men as a shocking report lays bare the state of social segregation caused by mass migration.  A women's rights campaign group is organising marches and protests in a bid to retake streets in predominantly Islamic neighbourhoods which they say have become entirely male dominated.  La Brigade des Mères, which is aiming to restore gender equality in France's troubled 'banlieues', says women in many communities are now too scared to go out because gangs of young men rule the streets.

Was Muhammad Really A Feminist?  As Robert Spencer has noted, the Quran, the Islamic Holy Book that Muslims regard as the incarnation of Allah, affirms the superiority of men over women and commands men "to beat those from whom they 'fear disobedience.'"  It as well likens women to commodities that can and should be used by men as the latter please; assigns only half of the value to the testimony of women that it assigns to that of men; and promotes polygamy, sex with slave girls, and marriage with pre-pubescent girls.  The Quran as well stipulates that the inheritance for male heirs should be double that which it is for females.  And the bulk of those in Hell, Muhammad is said to have remarked, are women.  With the greatest of ease we could cite from the ample supply of Quranic passages and hadiths, to say nothing of Muhammad's own personal life and the history and culture that it inspired, to expose [Jim] Garrison's scandalously absurd claim for what it is.

Houston: Muslim father in honor killings case sent to prison for disability fraud.  The patriarch of a Jordanian-  American  family from Montgomery County, whose members face murder charges in so-called "honor killings," has been sentenced to federal prison in an unrelated case involving the theft of disability benefits.  On Monday, U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes ordered Ali Mahwood-Awad Irsan, 57, to serve almost four years for his role in defrauding the Social Security Administration for more than a decade and to pay $290,651 in restitution.

'It's in Man's Nature', Says Muslim Who Founded Polygamy Website.  A Muslim from Sunderland who started a polygamy "matchmaking" website for men seeking multiple Sharia marriages says that monogamy is not "in tune" with man's nature and believes he has already been responsible for 100 'weddings'.  Azad Chaiwala, 33, who launched Secondwife.com in 2014 followed by Polygamy.com this year, claims that both sites have 70,000 members looking for polygamous marriages.

Prince Alwaleed says women driving ban hurts Saudi economy.  An influential Saudi prince, the billionaire investor Alwaleed bin Talal, has called on his country to lift its ban on women driving cars.  He said it was a matter of economic necessity as well as women's rights to lift restrictions.  Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world where women are not allowed to drive, and women's rights activists have been arrested for defying the ban.

Moroccan state TV shows women how to hide domestic violence.  Women in Morocco have reacted in horror after a programme on state television demonstrated how they could use makeup to cover up evidence of domestic violence.  The segment in the daily programme Sabahiyat, on Channel 2M, showed a smiling makeup artist demonstrating how to mask marks of beating, on a woman with her face made up to appear swollen and covered with fake black and blue bruises.

Woman Ordered Raped to Settle Family Honor Case.  After a man was accused of attempting to molest a young girl in Pakistan, the village council order that the girl's father rape the man's married daughter.

Germany:  Arab Migrants Playing 'Taharrush' Sexual Assault 'Game' At Public Pools.  Taharrush is a "game" in Middle Eastern countries where groups of Arabs surround women and girls and sexually molest them by grabbing their privates and tearing off their clothes.  As over one million Middle Eastern migrants have been allowed to flood into Germany with the promise of endless welfare and German women for the  taking raping, the culturally enriching custom of taharrush has come with them.  The first mass molestation incident went down on New Years Eve in Cologne and elsewhere when hundreds of women were molested and attacked throughout the nation.

Pregnant woman walking her dog stabbed and axed to death.  The brutal killing of 32-year-old woman who was seven months pregnant shocks Denmark.  The killing of a 32-year-old woman who on Friday night was found dead in a park in Herlev, is an even greater tragedy.  She was seven months pregnant.  According to the woman's profile on Instagram, she six weeks ago put up a picture of her pregnant belly and wrote that she had three months left of pregnancy.

HuffPo: Muhammad Was 'History's First Feminist'.  In an astonishing feat of mental legerdemain, the Huffington Post has made the claim that the prophet Muhammad — who married 13 wives and taught that women have an intellect inferior to men's — was actually an active promotor of women's rights, the world's "first feminist."  Of all the founders of the great religions, argues Banafsheh Sayyad in the Post, "Muhammad was easily the most radical and empowering in his treatment of women.  Arguably he was history's first feminist."

Muslim Police Chaplain:  Wives Need To Sleep With Husbands Whether They Want To Or Not.  The Toronto Police Service's new Muslim chaplain once declared that wives must have sex with their husbands — whether they want to or not.  The department appointed Musleh Khan as the chaplain for its Muslim police officers, reports City News.  Khan's responsibilities include offering spiritual support to the department's Muslim officers and acting as a go-between with the Muslim community and the police department.

Sexdömd taxi driver had to continue driving — now prosecuted for rape.  The 39-year-old Arab taxi driver was sentenced in March [after having] sexually molested female customers in Stockholm.  Despite this, he was able to continue driving taxis — and now he is prosecuted for raping another woman during a run.

Warning:  graphic photos.
Hindu Women in India Found Raped and Chopped Into Pieces by Muslims.  The jihad against the Hindu is centuries old, with over 80 million Hindu slaughtered — and that's a low estimate.  The jihadi war continues to this day.  Several bodies of women have been located that were dismembered entirely.  Preliminary test results confirm that the women had been raped, although it is not clear yet whether this was pre- or postmortem.  This will only be determined once further testing has been concluded by a pathologist.  Authorities are currently attempting to identify the names of the women so their families can be notified.

Muslim woman screams out in pain as she is caned 23 times in Indonesia for 'standing' too close to her boyfriend'.  Heart-wrenching images show a screaming young woman flogged in front of a jeering crowd for breaking Islamic laws as floggings reportedly spike in Indonesian province.  An unidentified woman screamed out in pain as she was caned 23 times in Indonesia's Aceh for breaking the province's strict Islamic law forbidding intimacy between unmarried couples.

Eight members of 'openly racist' violent Asian sex gang raped and 'sexually degraded' three teenage girls in Rotherham.  Eight members of an Asian sex gang in Rotherham were today convicted of sexually exploiting teenage girls after making them suffer 'degrading and violent' acts.  Sageer Hussain, 30, openly boasted that he was racist and told his distraught 13-year-old white victim:  'All white girls are good for is sex and they are just sl*gs.'  Sageer was convicted of four rapes and one indecent assault and his elder brother Basharat, 40, of indecent assault against the same girl at Sheffield Crown Court.

Muslim child bride married off at 15 to be executed in Iran for killing abusive husband.  Zeinab Sokian was married off to a Muslim man when she was just 15-years-old.  She was sentenced to the death penalty after she murdered her allegedly abusive husband in 2012, when she was 17.  She told the Court that her husband would beat her, but the court dismissed her claims.  Iran is extremely strict on their penalty for intentional murder which is always death.

Muslim Man Gets Angry, Rapes His Own Daughter After Accusing Her Of Being 'Too Western'.  In this latest incident from Norway, a "non-European" Muslim man attacked and raped his own daughter after getting mad at her that she was "too western," and then when he was arrested and DNA evidence clearly showed that he raped her, in true Islamic fashion, he denied everything.

Iranian Fatwa:  Women May Not Ride Bicycles.  Iran's Supreme Leader and autocrat, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has issued an Islamic fatwa regarding officially banning women from riding bicycles.  This is only the latest in a growing multitude of activities that the Islamic Republic of Iran had declared haram (religiously forbidden).  A mullah from the Islamic Republic once described the reasoning behind this fatwa to me.  He explained that if a male sees a woman in the act of riding a bicycle he would be exposed to her body physique, which will cause him to become aroused.  In other words, Iran's clerics believe that a man cannot control his sexual desires when he sees a woman on a bicycle even when she is fully covered.

Australia:  Muslim stabs his wife to death for converting to Christianity.  The death penalty for apostasy is part of Islamic law according to all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence.  This is still the position of all the schools of Islamic jurisprudence, both Sunni and Shi'ite.

The Mufti Of Saudi Arabia Passes A Fatwa That A Muslim Can Cannibalize And Eat His Wife.  A Fatwa is shared on several prominent news media in the Middle East (here, here, here, here and here) and so many more, attributed to the Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, which allows a man to cannibalize and eat his wife.  But "eating the wife" is only permitted under one circumstance, in case the husband is extremely hungry.

Woman Dismembered by Imam for Wearing a Bathing Suit.  An imam named Muhammad Zulkifal is on trial in Italy for murdering two of his fellow Pakistanis for the crime of wearing bathing suits at the beach.  At least one of the victims, a woman, was dismembered.  The case has a Mohammed Coefficient of 100%.

Government report: 500K girls in U.S. at risk of genital mutilation.  More than a half-million women and girls in the U.S. are at risk of genital mutilation, according to a government report Thursday that says federal agencies could do more to prevent or report the practice among immigrant communities.  The Government Accountability Office said the Obama administration's estimate of 513,000 is roughly a threefold increase from 1990, when the government counted 168,000 girls who were at-risk or already suffering from the practice, which provides no health advantages and can lead to severe pain, bleeding and other problems.  The Centers for Disease Control attributed the rise to a sharp increase in immigration from countries where the practice is prevalent.

Muslim man kicks woman in head for wearing shorts on bus.  Another example of how sharia law becomes law:  Not through legislation, but through thuggery and intimidation until it isn't worth disobeying. [...] Sharia law is rarely voted for, because it is rare that a majority of the population wants it.  At least not once they have lived with freedom and individual rights.  Sharia gets implemented because thugs are willing to simply enforce it until people obey it.

Anne Marie Waters:  Left Has 'Completely Turned Its Back on Women, Gays, and Jews' to Defend Islam.  Anne Marie Waters joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday's [9/21/2016] Breitbart News Daily to discuss an October 2015 article she wrote for Breitbart News, which the UK Guardian attacked as a "racist Breitbart rape-scare piece" after Donald Trump, Jr., referred to it on Twitter Tuesday morning.  Marlow said the article, which ran under the title "Europe's Rape Epidemic:  Western Women Will Be Sacrificed at the Altar of Mass Migration," was "incredible" work, filled with "details, facts, figures, and a personal account of what it's like to live in Europe right now, where there is a culture of extremely aggressive sexual behavior, typically coming from this influx of Muslim migrants."

When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
Muslim boy ordered to shake hands with female teachers after losing appeal in Swiss school.  A school in a Swiss canton has dismissed the appeal of a 15-year-old Muslim boy who had been ordered to shake hands with his teacher.  The case triggered nationwide outrage back in May after the student said that the ritual of handshakes was counter to Islam.  The school council in Therwil, Basel-Country rejected the complaint filed by his parents aimed at overturning the decision ordering the boy to shake hands with teachers.  The school issued a statement on Monday [9/19/2016] saying it was in teacher's right to demand a handshake.

German women are encouraged to wear sneakers — to run away from rapists.  The past year, more than one million immigrants from the third world, almost exclusively younger men, came to Germany, and the country is currently experiencing a historic rape wave without its equal, which many expected would happen.  This has led the Germany's Federal Criminal Police, BKA, to advise German women on how to best protect themselves against rape.

8 Reasons Why Islamic Law Endangers Women.  [#1] Under Sharia, Wives Can Be Beaten.  Whereas under Western laws women and men are equal, under Sharia women are not equal to men, but are considered inferior.  Women are the object of many disparaging remarks in the earliest Islamic source texts, which form the basis for Sharia.  For example, according to Q 4:34, husbands are allowed to beat their wives if they "fear disobedience" (which implies that actual disobedience need not occur for the beating to be justified).

Iran shutters 800 clothing stores over 'inappropriate' attire.  Iran's state TV says police have shut down more than 800 clothing stores across the country for selling "unconventional and inappropriate" attire — believed to mean Western-style outfits and women's clothing that doesn't meet strict Islamic requirements.

The Burkini is about Sexual Violence Against Women.  While Muslims massacre innocent people in the streets to shouts of "Allahu Akbar", the media has once again decided to ignore these horrors in favors of broadcasting some petty Muslim grievance.  Does it matter what Muslim women wear to the beach?  Arguably the government should not be getting involved in swimwear.  But the clothing of Muslim women is not a personal fashion choice.  Muslim women don't wear hijabs, burkas or any other similar garb as a fashion statement or even an expression of religious piety.  Their own religion tells us exactly why they wear them. [...] It's not about modesty.  It's not about religion.  It's about putting a "Do Not Rape" sign on Muslim women.  And putting a "Free to Molest" sign on non-Muslim women.

Burkinis? Here's why we should fight them on the beaches.  On a bathing platform in Turkey, I found myself sunbathing next to a Muslim family.  The father strutted about in a pair of teeny red trunks, just visible beneath the landslide of his vast belly.  The mother wore a black and orange burkini, which left only her face, hands and feet exposed.  She looked like a broiling penguin, clearly suffering in the intense heat.

Huma Abedin's mom linked to shocking anti-women book.  As secretary of state, women's-rights champ Hillary Clinton not only spoke at a Saudi girls school run by her top aide Huma Abedin's anti-feminist mother, but Clinton invited the elder Abedin to participate in a State Department event for "leading thinkers" on women's issues.  This happened despite evidence at the time that Saleha M. Abedin had explored the religious merits of sexual submissiveness, child marriage, lashings and stonings for adulterous women, and even the circumcision of girls.  The elder Abedin, whose daughter helps run Clinton's presidential campaign, did take a pro-gender-equality stance on at least one issue:  Muslim women's right to participate in violent jihad alongside men.

Senior Muslim Cleric:  Universal Female Genital Mutilation 'Would Be Very Good'.  A senior Muslim cleric in Russia has suggested that universal female genital mutilation (FGM) would be a positive development, after a rights group released a report denouncing the practice earlier this week.  Female genital mutilation does not pose health risks and "does not contradict the dogmas of Islam," said Mufti Ismail Berdiyev, the head of the North Caucasus Muslim Coordination Center.

Germany Now Has More Than 1,000 Documented Child Marriages.  Germany is struggling to prevent and keep track of the over 1,000 child marriages taking place in the country.  Child marriages have not been an issue in Germany until recent years.  The practice is illegal in Germany, but since the country doesn't recognize "religious marriages," authorities can't do anything to stop it in most cases.  German television channel N24 claims the number of child marriages in the country now exceeds 1,000, and that the actual number is believed to be significantly higher.

Turkey has made it legal to have sex with CHILDREN after lowering age of consent to 12.  The Turkish Constitutional court has lowered the age of consent to 12-years-old, prompting a dispute between Turkey and Austria after news of the decision was shown on tickers at Vienna's international airport.  This summer, the Turkish Hurriyet reported:  "The Constitutional Court has ruled to annul a provision that punishes all sexual acts against children under the age of 15 as "sexual abuse," stirring outrage from academics and women's rights activists who warn that the decision will lead to cases of child abuse going unpunished.

UK Imam:  War is Coming, Muslims Can Take Women As Sex Slaves.  An Imam has told his congregation in Wales that war is approaching and Islam allows them to take women as slaves and rape them.  Ali Hammuda is an Imam at Cardiff's Al-Manar Mosque, where three Islamic State (IS) fighters worshipped before travelling to Syria.  They were known as the "Cardiff jihadis" before one was killed in an RAF drone strike as he was thought to be plotting attacks in the UK.

Rapists in Turkey avoid prison by marrying victims.  Thousands of rapists and child abusers in Turkey are avoiding imprisonment by marrying their victims, according to the Turkish newspaper Milliyet.  It is the leader of the Appeals Committee of Turkey's Supreme Court, Mustafa Demirdag, who is warning of what he believes is an unacceptable practice.  He explains that the government has registered around 3,000 such marriages.  Some of the marriages have been between adult men and girls as young as five years old.  In 2013 there were 181,000 child brides (girls under 17) in Turkey.

Muslim Father Sells His Daughter To 55-Year-Old Pedophile In Exchange For A Goat.  Thankfully one of the girl's relatives said something about this, and both her father and the pedophile have been arrested, but the fact remains that for these men, a little bit of food was worth more than the life of their own daughter.

Dad Gives 6-Year-Old As Wife To Old Imam, Angry Neighbors Take Care Of Business.  Seyed Abdolkarim, also referred to as Sayed Mohammad Karim, made headlines when the 55-year-old mullah was caught after marrying a 6-year-old girl named Gharibgol in the Ghor province of Afghanistan.  Initially, police believed the girl's father, who said that that the imam kidnapped the child and married her without his consent.  Days later, however, the truth has come out that the pathetic father actually sold his own little girl to the pedophile imam for a bag of rice, tea, sugar, oil, and a goat — causing outraged local women to rise up against the depraved men.

Muslim Father Murders Newborn When He Sees What's 'Different' About Baby.  A Muslim man went with his wife to the hospital, eager to welcome his child into the world.  However, as soon as his poor wife completed the difficult delivery, the father took one look at his newborn and strangled the helpless infant just hours after birth — all because he saw something "different" about the baby.  Muslims are responsible for 91 percent of the world's honor killings, and while most of these deaths are in response to un-Islamic behavior, some of the victims have committed no more serious an offense than simply existing.  A man was arrested in Kasur, Pakistan, after he killed his baby only a few hours after birth because the infant dishonored him by being born a girl.

The Backward Pull of Islamic Health Practices.  [Scroll down]  Another backward norm in the Muslim world related to health (or lack thereof) is female genital mutilation (FGM) — a barbaric practice performed in a barbaric way with lifelong consequences that include premature death.  FGM is on the rise throughout the West, a phenomenon attributed to the influx from African nations.  The number of people coming to the United States from Africa has doubled every decade since 1970.  As a result, the number of girls living in the United States who are at risk for FGM is estimated to be at least half a million.  Most of their families are from Egypt or Somalia.  Nearly all, therefore, are Muslim.

Women barred from UK swimming pool to make way for Islamic men's event.  Women have been banned from a British swimming pool so that Muslim men can have it to themselves for a weekly men-only session.  No females can attend sessions at the publicly-funded Inspire Sports village in Luton, Bedfordshire, while the so-called Alhamdulliah swimming event takes place.  The subsidised event has a strictly-enforced Islamic dress code which forced men to cover up more than usual — and makes sure that women are nowhere near the pool.

Female Genital Mutilation in U.S. Up More than 200 Percent Since 1990.  The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that number of women and girls in the United States who are "at risk of or may have been subjected" to female genital mutilation/cutting (FGM/C) has increased three-fold over the past decades," however the crime is rarely investigated or prosecuted, according to the Government Accountability Office.  The government attributes the growing incidents of this brutal practice in the U.S. to increased immigration from countries — largely in Africa and the Middle East — where FGM/C is practiced.

'Radical' Islamic cleric tells young British Muslims it is 'acceptable' to keep sex slaves.  A Muslim cleric from a Cardiff mosque where three British jihadis are believed to have been radicalised has told young worshippers it is "permissible" to keep sex slaves.  Ali Hammuda is an Imam at the Al-Manar mosque in the Welsh city, and has been at this post since Nasser Muthana and Reyyad Khan, then 20, and teenager Aseel Muthana left for Syria in 2014.  Now the preacher has been secretly filmed telling a group of young Muslims it is acceptable to keep sex slaves and that the "end of days" is near.

Creeping Sharia in Health Care.  [Scroll down] Throughout Europe it has also become increasingly common for Muslim men to physically attack male doctors.  In some cases, women are denied urgently needed medical care because their spouses are adamant that they be attended to by a female, or not be attended to at all.  In France, a newborn's father called the midwife a "rapist" then broke into the locked delivery room after seeing a nurse remove his wife's burqa so she could give birth, hit the nurse in the face, and demanded she put the burqa back on his wife.  In another case a Muslim male physically attacked a gynecologist who stepped in to assist with his wife's complicated delivery.  A few months prior to that, another doctor was attacked by a knife-wielding Islamist.  In Belgium, when a Muslim woman needed an emergency c-section, her husband blocked the door to the operating room because the anesthesiologist was a male.  After being told no female anesthesiologists were available a two-hour stand-off ensued after which time an imam was called upon who allowed the doctor to administer an epidural through a tiny opening in the woman's burqa.  A female nurse performed the surgery while the anesthesiologist remained outside the room shouting instructions to another nurse who was monitoring the anesthesia.  An organization of anesthesiologists stated there have been other such incidents involving Muslim patients and their families.

Muslim Man Attacks 79-Year-Old Woman Visiting Her Sister's Grave and Rapes Her Right There in the Cemetery.  Another Muslim predator attacked an old lady visiting her sister's grave and raped her right there in the cemetery.  This man, a 40-year-old "refugee" from Eritrea, was caught fleeing after people heard the old woman screaming for help: [...]

Muslim Man Takes Machete And Butchers Pregnant Wife To Death In The Middle Of The Street In Broad Daylight.  The reports are still coming out about this, but it appears an angry Muslim man butchered his wife and unborn child to death in a public display of uncontrolled rage: [...]

Sounds like they're putting the mice in charge of the cheese:
Migrants to be trained as German pool lifeguards to reduce escalating sex attacks by refugees at public baths.  A professional swimming association in Germany wants to reduce escalating sex attacks by refugees at public baths by training migrants to become pool lifeguards.  The Federal Association of German Swimming Professionals (BDS) says this would be 'an inclusive measure that would benefit everyone.'  Last month a secret police document was leaked in Duesseldorf voicing the 'grave concern' of police chiefs about escalating sex crimes carried out by refugees at public swimming baths.

Kurdish Yazidi woman recognizes her ISIS abuser in Germany.  A Kurdish Yazidi woman who survived the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/IS) captivity accidentally saw her IS abuser in Germany.  The Kurdish Yazidi woman who is now receiving psychological treatment in Germany happened to see the IS militant who had maltreated her for four months while she was in IS captivity, Al-Alam News Channel reported on Sunday [7/17/2016].

French woman and her three daughters stabbed by Moroccan-born man in Alpine resort.  A French woman and her three young daughters were seriously wounded in a knife attack at an Alpine resort on Tuesday [7/19/2016] by a man who reportedly complained that they were scantily dressed.  The man was arrested after the attack at the Alpine resort of Garde-Colombe, near Laragne, in southern France. [...] The attacker, named as Mohamed B, 37, "may have acted out of religious motives", French television channel TF1 reported.

Same story as above, from a reporter who is even more afraid to state the obvious:
Woman and girls stabbed by man at French Alps resort.  French authorities have detained a Moroccan man after he stabbed a woman and her three daughters, briefly causing panic in a nation reeling from its third major attack in 18 months.  The motive for the attack was not immediately clear.

The lesson is clear:  Don't go to France until all the Muslims are driven out.
Mum and three daughters stabbed for being 'scantily dressed' in French holiday resort.  A young girl is fighting for her life after being knifed in a popular tourist destination for Brits because of the way she was dressed.  The eight-year-old is said to be in a critical condition after the attack in Laragne in Hautes-Alpes, in southern France.  She was air-lifted to a nearby hospital in Grenoble with a punctured lung.

Two Muslim Men Kidnap Woman And Take Her To An Abandoned Building, Tie Her Up And Take Turns Raping Her.  Fortunately, she did not die but lived, has a lawyer and is prosecuting these two Muslim men. [...] It would be bad enough if this was a single incident, but this is ongoing.  Last week, Muslims put up signs in Sweden telling non-Mulsim women to cover up or be raped.  The same day this attack happened two Muslims in Rome raped a teenage girl, and they did the same in Denmark too.  Wherever Islam goes there will inevitably follow social and sexual violence and all forms of anti-social, anti-human behavior because Islam is an anti-human religion.

France:  Muslim migrant stabs woman and her three daughters for being scantily dressed.  A French woman and her three young daughters were severely injured when they were stabbed at a holiday resort on Tuesday by a Moroccan-born man who reportedly shouted that they were too scantily dressed.  The man was arrested after the attack at the Alpine resort of Colombe, near Laragne, in southern France.  The youngest girl, aged 8, was rushed to hospital in Grenoble with a punctured lung, according to initial reports.

Sweden:  "Wear a headscarf or be raped".  Stickers threatening women with rape if they don't wear headscarves have been posted in the streets of a small town in Sweden.  The sick messages have appeared on objects in the streets of Nybro, Smaland, along with stickers calling for democracy to be replaced with Islam.

Teenager 'raped and left pregnant' in Cologne attacks.  An 18-year-old woman became pregnant after being raped during the New Year's Eve sex attacks in Cologne, according to new allegations.  The young woman, who has not been named, was held down and raped in the middle of the crowded square outside the city's main station, according to the claims.

Pakistani model's brother says he killed her for 'honor'.  The brother of slain Pakistani model Qandeel Baloch on Sunday confessed to strangling her to death for "family honor" because she posted "shameful" pictures on Facebook.

Qandeel Baloch, a Pakistani internet celebrity, is killed in 'honor killing'.  An internet celebrity who pushed the boundaries of what is considered acceptable behavior for women in Pakistan was killed by her brother in a suspected "honor killing," the police said Saturday [7/16/2016].  Officials said Qandeel Baloch, a 26-year-old who was described as the country's Kim Kardashian, died at her parents' house in the central city of Multan.  They said they would know after an autopsy if Ms.  Baloch died Friday night or early Saturday.  "According to a preliminary [investigation] and statements from her parents, her brother strangled her," said Azhar Akram, Multan's police chief.  He said authorities were searching for her brother.

Women Segregated at London Mayor's Rally.  Women were segregated from men at a rally addressed by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan yesterday.  Mr Khan was photographed addressing the crowd with men at the front and women at the back.  The rally took place in the Northern City of Manchester, which is home to a large Pakistani Muslim population. [...] Photos from the event show a ring of men at the front with the women further behind.  There is no suggestion they were forcably segregated, but the Mayor did not intervene to prevent the women standing at the back.

Top imam says beating wives is the only way to control them.  A leading Pakistani cleric has provided male followers with a step-by-step guide to controlling their women — with a "light beating" suggested at the end of the process for problem wives.  Muhammad Khan Sherani, chairman of the Council of Islamic Ideology in Pakistan, offered a weirdly archaic model to men because:  "When we draft a bill concerning women we have to consider all possible solutions."  Sherani is proposing a law that would allow husbands to beat their wives.

Florida terror imam on Fox justifies stoning women, beheading journalists.  Fox News has a tendency to give the enemy air time and promote Islam.  This jihad-preacher will only become more popular among Muslims in the U.S. and recruit and train more jihadists who kill Americans as Fox invites him back like they do terror org CAIR.

Child Bride Legally Married Under Sharia Law, German Judge Rules.  A regional German court has recognised as valid the marriage of a 14-year-old Syrian girl to her 20-year-old cousin, despite the legal age for marriage in Germany being 16.  The case represents a landmark ruling, with the Federal Court set to adjudicate on the implications for the country as a whole.  Among the hundreds of thousands of migrants arriving in European countries over the eighteen months have been a number of underage wives, some as young as eleven, others already mothers.  But although most European countries stipulate that a girl must be 16 to marry, the authorities seem unsure what to do with young bride migrants.

Pakistani woman burns daughter alive for marrying for love.  Pakistani police say a woman has been arrested after dousing her daughter with kerosene and burning her alive, allegedly because the girl had defied her family to marry a man she was in love with.

Pakistani teen burnt alive by her mother for choosing own husband.  Zeenat Bibi was set on fire Wednesday in Pakistan's cultural capital of Lahore, a little over a week after she wed 20-year-old motorcycle mechanic Hasan Khan against the wishes of her family.  Her mother Perveen Bibi has admitted to the killing, though details of the brutal murder remain unclear.  Early reports suggested she had been burnt alive though police now say she may have been asphyxiated first, with a post-mortem report not expected until later this month.

More than 1,200 cases of FGM recorded in England in just three months.  More than 1,200 cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) have been recorded in England over the past three months.  Between January and March there were 1,242 newly recorded cases of the practice — including on 11 girls born in the UK — reported across the NHS in England, according to newly released data from the Health and Social Care Information Centre.  At least two percent of all new cases were girls under the age of 18.

Honor in Islam:  Woman teacher is burned alive 'by her boss' after she turned down a marriage proposal from his son.  A young Pakistani teacher has died after being tortured and set alight by her former boss as punishment for refusing a marriage proposal from his son, relatives and police said.  Maria Sadaqat, 19, was attacked in the village of Upper Dewal, outside the capital Islamabad, on Monday night, and died two days later as a result of injuries.

Yazidi girls were "sold" in exchange for a few packs of cigarettes.
Yazidi Girl Exposes ISIS Rape Hellhole.  A new televised interview, conducted in Arabic with a Yazidi girl who endured sexual captivity at the hands of the Islamic State, was published on March 22, 2016.  It appeared on "Shabaab [Youth] Talk," hosted by Ja'far Abdul.  The teenage girl, who went by the pseudonym of Birvan, was enslaved when she was 15 and endured months of captivity before she managed to escape.  She is now 17.  Based on the 40-minute interview, her story is as follows:  [...]

British mosques ban women from Facebook, traveling alone or wearing trousers.  Mosques across the UK have ordered Muslim women to stop wearing trousers, leaving the house without permission from their husbands, or using Facebook in new controversial rules published by various Muslim organizations and associations.  The documents caused anger among anti-extremism campaigners and moderate Muslims who called the rules "outdated" and "totally wrong" interpretations of Islam, according to a report from The Times.  The Green Lane Masjid in Birmingham banned women from wearing trousers — even in front of their husbands as they show "details of her body", while Blackburn's Central Mosque said women should delete their Facebook accounts to protect them against "evil."

Vienna police tell young blonde woman attacked by Muslim immigrants to dye hair, wear modest clothing, and don't go out alone on transit after 8.  Welcome to creeping Sharia, Austria.  When Muslims reach a critical threshold in the share of population, especially among young adult males, they begin enforcing new social rules.  That is what is happening across Western Europe with the arrival of "refugees" from Syria and many other places.

The Horrible Practice of Honor Killings in Pakistan.  More than 1,000 girls and women die in honor killings in Pakistan each year.  The United Nations estimates that there are about 5,000 honor killings around the world annually, including in the U.S. and Europe.  Honor killings are murders or attempted murders generally carried out by male family members against female family members as punishment for bringing dishonor on the family.  The usual reasons for honor killings include refusing to accept an arranged marriage, being in a relationship disapproved by the family, and having sex outside marriage.

Obama: All Faiths are Equal.  Few religions chattelize all women, sanction the taking of all and any female child or adult as fit booty after unprovoked aggressions aimed at wresting land and money and valuables from innocent civilians doing no one any harm.  No Protestant sect advises the mutilation of female genitalia, the forced donning of impenetrable, crippling body bags to ensure that men cannot gaze on a workaday female going about her daily rounds.  Judaism has no brief with forced conversions under pain of death or the payment of vast sums of Jizzya to 'apologize' for not converting.

French Muslim shopowner fined for sexist opening hours.  A Muslim shopkeeper has been fined €500 ($560) for ordering different opening hours for men and women at his store in the French city of Bordeaux, his lawyer said Tuesday [4/26/2016].  Jean-Baptiste Michalon, the owner of a general store and who converted to Islam in 2012, created an uproar when he pasted a notice outside the shop in June 2015 indicating different shopping hours for men and women.  "Sisters" were invited to shop on Saturdays and Sundays only, while "brothers" were told they could shop on week days.

Saudi Family Therapist:  Don't Beat Your Wife With Rod or Sharp Object, Use Sewak Tooth-Cleaning Twig.  A Muslim family therapist in Saudi Arabia, Khaled Al-Saqaby, posted a video in which he gives advice on "wife beating," explains that the "necessary Islamic conditions for beating must be met," and shows that husbands must not use a long wooden rod to beat their wife but instead use a tooth-cleaning twig or handkerchief.  In the video from February, which was translated into English and re-posted by the Washington, D.C.-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby begins, "Assalaam Alaykum.  Allah's blessing upon you.  Welcome to our show, which will deal with wife beating.  I am aware that this issue is a thorny one, which contains many hazards, but Allah willing, we will cross this bridge safely."

Prince Says Saudi Arabia Not Yet Ready to Allow Women to Drive.  Saudi Arabia isn't ready to end the world's only ban on women driving, Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said, arguing it's not just a matter of ending strictures imposed by the kingdom's austere form of Islam.  Allowing women to drive is "not a religious issue as much as it is an issue that relates to the community itself that either accepts it or refuses it," said the 30-year-old prince, who has amassed unprecedented powers since his father, King Salman, ascended to the throne.  "The community is not convinced about women driving" and sees negative consequences if it's allowed, the prince said on Monday after outlining a plan to reduce the kingdom's reliance on oil.

Not exactly a rocket scientist:
Attack of the 90 Foot Islamic Virgins.  Ibrahim Barda'aya had turned 54 and he was still single so he decided to go out and kill some Jews.  But Ibrahim wasn't just a violent anti-Semitic racist.  He was also lonely.  According to his Imam, he wanted to die and get his 72 virgins in the afterlife.  And he had stayed single to avoid the temptations of earthly women so that he could enjoy the 72 virgins who are 90 feet tall and so "white" that you can see the "marrow of their bones," who never urinate or menstruate, get pregnant or complain.  In Pakistan, an arrested suicide bomber last year when asked if he wanted to marry, retorted that he wanted to die.  "72 virgins are waiting for me in paradise, so why I should prefer only one here?"

Three New Muslim "Refugees" Stalk Random 17-Year-Old Woman In Subway, Attack And Rape Her.  Something that you will notice about Muslim sexual assaults against non-Muslim (and particularly western women) is that they involve some kind of (a) group sex or (b) feces.  This is no accident, but deliberate.  It is a fact seldom discussed in the modeling world that non-Muslim women who prostitute themselves to Arab men, especially in Dubai, have reported being coerced to perform (albeit for large sums of money) some of the most vile sex acts imaginable (if they could even be called sex acts), many times with the tamest involving feces or urine and getting worse from there — things that even many prostitutes will not do.

Saudi family therapist releases helpful video on how to beat your wife the Islamic way.  Here's some diversity for the multiculturalists to celebrate.  Via MEMRI, translation of a video by Saudi family therapist Khaled Al-Saqaby, who explains the proper Islamic way to beat your wife, which, he admits, is a thorny issue.

Muslim Immigrants Sexually Harassing German Schoolgirls and the Mayor Blames the Girls.  A concerned grandfather voiced his concerns about the increasing incidents of sexual harassment of young girls on their way to school by migrants in a meeting in the German town of Bad Schlema.  His own granddaughter has been victim of sexual harassment and he fears it will be much worse when girls will wear less clothing in the summer or dress for physical education.  The mayor's reply angered the over 100 citizens who were present:  "It's simple, don't provoke them and don't walk in these areas.  The crowd went furious, some mocked the absurdity of not being able to walk to school in your own town, some demanded he step down immediately.

ISIS execute 250 women in Mosul for refusing to become sex slaves under the group's 'sexual jihad'.  ISIS has executed 250 women in Mosul for refusing to become sex slaves under the group's 'sexual jihad'.  The victims had all been ordered to accept 'temporary marriages' to fighters in the terror group's northern Iraq stronghold.  But when they refused the so-called sexual jihad, they were butchered -- sometimes along with their families, according to an official from the Kurdistan Democratic Party.

Politician quits after refusing to shake women's hands.  A Swedish Green Party politician, who ignited a storm of controversy after refusing to shake hands with a female reporter on grounds that it violated his Muslim faith, announced on Wednesday that he was quitting politics.  Yasri Khan is the second Green Party politician to resign in acrimony this week.  During an interview with a female reporter from the TV4 broadcaster on Tuesday [4/19/2016], Khan placed his hand over his heart instead of shaking her hand in greeting.

Muslim boys bring Sharia into schools.  Findings in [a film] about an investigation, which is to be fully released by Channel Four this week, have shown there is a "nation within a nation" emerging in Britain, made up of Muslims who have no intention of living by UK social standards.  The report, What British Muslims Really Think, has been described as the most detailed and comprehensive survey of the group ever carried out.  Ahead of the full release, which is set to shock the nation, former chairman of Equality and Human Rights Commission Trevor Phillips described the findings as "astonishing".  He said:  "On certain key issues Britain is nurturing communities with a complete set of alternative values.  "None is more alarming than attitudes towards women."

Sudan: Police Use Modesty Laws to Rape Female Activists.  Female Sudanese human rights activists have been systematically raped and abused by the country's Islamist regime.  A recently released Human Rights Watch report detailed the draconian measures taken by Sudan's police to silence dissent.  Civil rights campaigners have been agitating against the country's harsh laws prompting a regime backlash.

New York: Husband killed wife, honor killing not even considered.  A woman was found slain in her Middle Island home, and her husband later died at the hospital from apparent self-inflicted stab wounds in a murder-suicide, police said Monday [4/11/2016].  Police identified the woman as Fahriye Ugan, 54, and her husband as Erdem Gulay, 41.  Family members could not be reached for comment Monday. [...] Detectives had sought to speak to Gulay, who initially was hospitalized and had been expected to survive, police had said.  But Gulay died of his injuries Monday night.  Police did not identify a motive.

A Look Inside Britain's Muslim Sex Grooming Gang Scandal.  In his riveting book, Easy Meat: Inside Britain's Grooming Gang Scandal author Peter McLoughlin explains how multiculturalism-inspired political correctness along with its companion, willful blindness concerning Islamic doctrine, has jeopardized the safety and well-being of children.  McLoughlin posits that, since 1988, this nationwide sexploitation has resulted in the shattering of lives of between 100,000 to 1 million girls.  The author documents how the fear of being deemed racist and facing criminal charges, dismissal or even threats of violence, has led to suppression of information and a stunning lack of intervention on behalf of young victims.  In essence, an extensive, insidious operation that targets children for sexual grooming and enslavement has been covered up because of political correctness and fear of Muslim retribution.

Air France to Stewardesses on Iran Route: 'Outside the Bedroom, Women Must Wear a Scarf and a Wide and Long Garment to Conceal Their Shapes'.  The French women's rights minister, already under fire for provocative comments relating to Islamic dress for women, is now caught between Air France management and unions in a row over a requirement that air hostesses wear headscarves when the airline renews flights to Iran this month.  Following the easing of sanctions under the nuclear deal, Air France is resuming three weekly flights from Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris to Tehran on April 17 after an eight-year suspension.  And management of the airline want female flight attendants to comply with Iranian modesty norms.

Justice for Air France flight attendants — an excellent union win.  Kudos to the Union des Navigants de l'Aviation Civile and its allies for forcing Air France to back down from its effort to bend female flight attendants to the Islamist demands of Iran's government.  Thanks to the global end of sanctions after President Obama's nuclear deal, Air France will resume flights to Tehran this month.  But the regime has strict rules on what women must wear in public — and the airline moved to enforce them on its staff.  It sent out a notice to female crew members warning they'd have to don headscarves on arrival in Iran — and switch uniforms from knee-length dress to pants and long-sleeved jacket for the flight.

Air France stewardesses mutiny over order to wear headscarves.  Air France stewardesses, furious at being ordered to wear headscarves in Tehran, say they will refuse to fly to the Iranian capital when the airline resumes the service later this month.  Female members of flight crews have been ordered to cover their hair once they disembark in Tehran and unions are demanding that the flights be made voluntary for women.

Escaped Women Describe Their Horrific Lives Under ISIS Rule.  A group of activists, bloggers, and filmmakers are raising their voices against the propaganda machine of the Islamic State (ISIS) by sharing personal stories of those who have experienced the group's terror first hand.  The self-declared caliphate's recruitment strategy promises a fantastic life under their control to those wanting to serve what they consider to be a noble cause.  To counter the fictitious and sensationalist propaganda, the Open Your Eyes movement exposes the reality of life under the Islamic State with the aim of showing potential new recruits they are actually joining a death cult — and that what they are being told is lies.

Meet the 10 scariest fugitives roaming the streets today.  [For example,] Yaser Abdel Said, 59.  The married Egyptian immigrant, a taxi driver with a history of abusive behavior, forbade his two teenage daughters from dating.  They did, in secret.  When Said found out on Christmas Eve 2007 he was furious, authorities say.  A few days later, on New Year's Day, in a so-called "honor killing," he drove the girls in his taxi to a wooded area and allegedly shot them point blank and left their bodies his cab.

Muslim migrant melts off wife's face with boiling oil.  When Homa, the 48-year-old wife of Mohamad, pulled back the shower curtain after her husband told her to "have a look" at what he was holding, the pot of hot boiling oil in his hands was not what she expected.  In a matter of seconds her face was gone — melted — and the right hand she raised to protect herself permanently fused shut.  She was left with burns over 44 percent of her body ... scarred forever to restore her husband's honor. [...] Honor attacks on women that result in death are common in Islamic countries, with an estimated 1,000 per year occurring in Pakistan.

7 Yr Old White Girl Raped By Syrian Refugee, Islamic Invasion Rape Crisis In Full Effect!  America needs to understand that when we allow people to enter America, we are also inviting their culture.  In Islamic culture, women are treated like dogs, and young girls are raped without a second thought.  In Muslim Egypt, 99.3% of women and girls have been sexually harassed or raped.  Rape of Muslim women is technically against Islamic law, but rape can only be proven if the rapist confesses, or if there are four male witnesses.  Women who allege rape without the benefit of the act having been witnessed by four men, will be punished for making the accusation.  Rape of non-Muslim women is said to be okay under Islam.  If they or the accused happens to be married, then it is considered to be adultery.

The Women-Hunt In Germany.  Many Germans welcomed with open arms the million, mostly male and Muslim, migrants Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel invited into Germany last September.  At train stations, they handed out water bottles to the newcomers, while holding signs stating:  "Willkommen!"  At first, everything was, as the Germans say, "Friede, Freude, Eierkuchen" ("peace, joy and happiness").  But the good feeling these greeters created, especially among themselves, has somewhat dissipated, primarily due to the increasing number of reported sexual assaults by migrants against women and children.  The best known incident was the sexual molestation of hundreds of women in Cologne on New Year's Eve by about 1,000, mostly North African men that included migrants.

Riot in refugee camp sees 100 migrants attack each other with chairs and bins after Syrian girl refused to wear a headscarf.  Some 100 migrants rioted in a refugee camp in Belgium after Syrian and Iraqi migrants clashed with Afghans because a young girl was not wearing a headscarf.  The young Syrian girl at the centre of the dispute had been targeted by the Afghans for days over her refusal to wear the headscarf, an item of modesty clothing often enforced in Islamic countries.  But when she was defended by her fellow Syrians, a riot erupted which saw the groups of migrants attacking each other with rubbish bins, chairs and broomsticks.

How academia whitewashes Muslim honor killings.  The whitewashing of Muslim honor killings in America has seeped into academia.  And the PC police have found a new scapegoat:  Hindu Americans.  In January, the Journal of Family Violence published "An Exploratory Study of Honor Crimes in the United States" by Brittany E. Hayes, Joshua D. Freilich and Steven M. Chermak.  It was an act of cowardice as well as a shoddy piece of research.  It broke absolutely no new ground, either theoretically or statistically, and is so "politically correct" that it completely misses an entire forest for a tree.

Palestinian leader gives wife-beating tips on Gaza TV.  A top spiritual leader in the Palestinian territory of Gaza told a television audience last week how and when men can beat their wives, advising not to hit them in a way that "makes the face ugly."  The shocking interview with Hassan Al-Laham, who holds the title "mufti of Gaza," came during a weekly Palestinian Authority TV program on social issues.  Explaining that divorce must be a last resort in Islam, Al-Laham laid out the four steps that should come first.

Islam and socialism creepily similar.  [Scroll down]  Although the method is different, the result is identical:  the iron-fisted suppression of the individual's rights and freedoms in favor of the all-powerful State.  That's why Democrats who bray about gender and racial inequity in America are silent as mice regarding the actual abuses of women in the Middle East, specifically Saudi Arabia.  Today, a woman can't walk into Starbucks; rather, she must send a man in her stead.  For example, a sign posted in English and Arabic, "Please no entry for ladies only send your driver to order thank you."  This isn't Arthurian chivalry; it's sexual discrimination and overt repression.

Sex: The Only Thing 'Infidel' Women Are Worth.  [Scroll down]  Consider recent events in Pakistan:  three Christian girls walking home after a hard day's work were accosted by four "rich and drunk" Muslims — hardly ISIS candidates — in a car.  The men "misbehaved," yelled "suggestive and lewd comments," and harassed the girls to get in their car for "a ride and some fun."  When the girls declined the "invitation," adding that they were "devout Christians and did not practice sex outside of marriage," the men became enraged and chased the girls, yelling, "How dare you run away from us, Christian girls are only meant for one thing:  the pleasure of Muslim men."  They drove their car into the three girls, killing one and severely injuring the other two.

Maher to Gloria Steinem: Why Isn't Anti-Woman Sharia Law a Bigger Feminist Issue?  Bill Maher spoke with iconic feminist Gloria Steinem tonight [2/5/2016] about a cause he thinks more feminists should care about:  radical Islamic law.  He brought up how horribly women are treated in the Muslim world and asked why it isn't a bigger feminist issue.  Steinem argued that it actually is, pointing to feminists in Muslim nations attempting to push reforms.  She said that "all monotheism is a problem," but Maher jumped in to say that Islamic nations are particularly horrible to women and bad on women's rights.

U.N. to Obama BFF Iran: Hey, if you could stop raping and executing 9-year olds, that would be greaaaaaaaaat.  The U.N. body charged with protecting the rights of children has told the government of Iran that its laws allowing sex with girls as young as 9-years-old and capital punishment of minors must be changed.  The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child announced it's condemnation of Iran's practices Thursday [2/4/2016] after 18 experts completed a review of 14 countries, including Iran.  Iran's current law allows the state to execute minors for capital crimes, a violation of international agreements as well as the forced marriage of young girls.

Women are banned from Starbucks in Saudi Arabia after partition between men and women collapses.  Women were barred from a Starbucks in Saudi Arabia and told to send 'their driver' to get a coffee for them instead after religious police noticed a 'gender barrier' wall had collapsed, reports claim.  Signs in Arabic and English were put up on doors to the coffee shop telling women not to enter.  The posters read:  'Please no entry for ladies, only send your drivers to order.  Thank you.'

Obama's mosque visit demonstrates tacit acceptance of a form of gender apartheid.  To Muslim women's rights activists fighting for equal access to mosques as part of a broader campaign for reform, President Obama's visit to the Islamic Society of Baltimore represents a step backwards.

Austria won't deport Afghan asylum seeker who raped 72-year-old woman.  An 18-year-old asylum seeker who raped a 72-year-old pensioner will not be deported from Austria to Afghanistan after serving his 20-month prison sentence.  The Afghan asylum seeker, identified as Wahab M., was found guilty of raping an elderly woman by the Regional Court on Wednesday [1/27/2016], Austrian press reported. He was sent to jail and issued a €5,000 fine.

Mother of girl, 16, who was raped in hotel by three Somali men tells how the attackers' relatives terrified her throughout the trial.  The mother of a 16-year-old raped by three Somali men today claimed 50 of their friends and family carried out a two-month campaign of intimidation throughout the trial.  The woman, who cannot be named to protect her daughter's anonymity, says she was smuggled into court via a back door 'as if she was the criminal' to see the men jailed for a total of 29 years.

Germany hands out cartoon etiquette guides at swimming baths after dozens of women were groped by migrants.  German authorities have resorted to issuing cartoon leaflets in public swimming pools in an attempt to stop gangs of migrants groping women.  In the wake of the sex assaults in Cologne on New Year's Eve and a wave of reported cases of sexual harassment in swimming baths, officials have now created a special cartoon guide on appropriate etiquette.

Germany's "Rapefugee" Crisis.  "Why should we children have to grow up in such fear?"  That is the very reasonable question 16-year-old German teenager Bibi Wilhailm asks, in her 20-minute YouTube video, garnering her some much-needed recognition in cyberspace.  Her video had first appeared on Facebook, but was taken down for reasons that still remain unclear.  But Wilhailm doesn't seem to care too much for fame.  In her first ever YouTube appearance, she says she only wants her old life back.  It is a life that she describes as "toll" (fantastic), before Chancellor Angela Merkel allowed one million, mostly male and Muslim, refugees into Germany last fall.  Since then, Wilhailm says, "life has become very unsafe on the streets for young women like me and my friends."

Denver: Schoolgirls Forced to Wear Headscarves, "Ankles Must Be Covered" on School Trip to Denver Mosque.  School girls at a Douglas County public school in Colorado are being forced to cover up from head-to-toe to visit a mosque on a school mandated Common Core trip.  There are no requirements to visit a Greek Orthodox cathedral or synagogue.  Here again we see that anywhere American law and Islamic law conflict, it is American law that has to give way.  The subjugation and oppression of women are enshrined under the sharia.  Young school girls should not be forced to "respect" a dress code that represents honor violence, female genital mutilation, forced marriage, child marriage, et al.

Where are the men of Germany?  A 16-year-old German girl is more articulate and honest than most adults on the matter of the Muslim invasion and the transformation of Europe.  Bibi Wilhailm is a 16-year-old German girl who has just made an extraordinary 20-minute video that I urge every reader to watch.  In it she expresses her terror as she faces tectonic shifts in Germany's cultural landscape.  She is incredibly articulate as she makes stark and accurate observations while also sharing personal stories that highlight the nightmare that is now life in Germany.  She speaks with unabashed clarity and honesty, best summed up by her own statement:  "It's really a sad truth."

Gang of migrants arrested after 'sexually assaulting women and masturbating at historic German swimming baths'.  Migrants have been banned from a historic swimming bath in Germany after a gang of men were caught on camera masturbating in a hot tub and sexually assaulting women.  Several other men were seen 'emptying their bowels' in the children's end of the main swimming pool at the Johannisbad baths in Zwickau, Saxony.  Management at the historic baths are reportedly no longer allowing migrants into the facilities following the allegations while some local swimmers have stayed away after the incidents.

The Editor says...
The hijrah paints a picture of what Hell is like:  It's like an endless Mardi Gras, minus the alcohol, the music, and any kind of meaningful police protection.  Godless uninhibited savages from 2016 B.C. roam everywhere, acting like escaped baboons, with no controlling legal authority [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] in sight — and no concept of self-control.  These so-called refugees see the world (or at least Germany, Denmark and Sweden) as their harem and their toilet.  And yet, if you criticize their behavior, you're a racist!

Cologne Imam: Girls Were Raped Because They Were Half Naked And Wore Perfume.  Warning women against "adding fuel to the fire", the Imam of a Salafist Cologne mosque has said the victims of the New Year's Eve attacks in that city were themselves responsible for their sex assault, by dressing inappropriately and wearing perfume.  Speaking to major Russian channel REN TV, Imam Sami Abu-Yusuf's remarks came during a 12 minute segment bringing Russians up to date with the latest developments in the migrant invasion of Europe.

German police release 'without charge' a gang of Muslim savages who gang-raped a 13-year-old girl for 30 hours.  On January 11, the 13-year-old girl whose family had immigrated to Germany from Russia, disappeared on her way to school.  Police issued an APB but the following day she was returned, after having been abducted by three Arab Muslim men (referred to as "Southern men" by police) who blindfolded her and took her to an apartment where they repeatedly raped her for 30 hours. [...] The police concluded that no rape had taken place and the girl was forced to say she had made a false statement against her attackers — even though the medical report confirmed that she had been gang-raped.

Thousands of women and children enslaved by ISIL in Iraq, UN report claims.  An estimated 3,500 people, mainly women and children, are believed to be held as slaves in Iraq by Islamic State militants who impose a harsh rule marked by gruesome public executions, the United Nations has warned.

Afghans revolted as husband cuts off wife's nose.  A photograph of an Afghan woman whose nose was sliced off by her husband in a fit of rage has sparked online anger, with activists demanding punishment for what one called a "barbaric act".  Reza Gul, 20, was rushed to hospital after the attack in Ghormach district in the northwestern province of Faryab on Sunday [1/17/2016].  Her husband is said to have fled to a Taliban-controlled area.  "Mohammad Khan [the husband] cut off Reza Gul's nose with a pocket knife," Faryab governor's spokesman Ahmad Javed Bedar said.

Muslim Women Must Be Emancipated.  [Scroll down]  The purpose of the Cox bill is to restrict the powers of sharia courts, now estimated to number 85 in the UK, and sometimes referred to as sharia councils, to help vulnerable women who need protection from exploitation and to end gender discrimination by Muslims.  It addresses the problem of religiously sanctioned gender discrimination.  The second issue is to question the growth of an alternative Islamic quasi-legal system that undermines the fundamental principle of one law for all.  The disapproval of sharia law results from the reality that it condones domestic violence and physical abuse against women, and that it undermines equal rights and protection under the law.  Under sharia law, the process of halala allows a man to divorce his wife by uttering the words "I divorce you," three times, divorce can be had by mail, and polygamy to the extent of four wives is allowed.  Women are handicapped on issues of child custody, inheritance provisions, and rules of evidence in trials as women's testimony accounts for only half that of men.

This Is What Really Happened the Night Women Were Sexually Assaulted In Front Of Police.  Apart from the presence of several police officers, there were few signs in Cologne central station on a cold January afternoon that just a few days earlier this area had been declared a "no-go area".  Nearly a week after scores of women were assaulted, and at least two raped, by groups of men in a series of attacks on New Year's Eve, life for most appeared to be returning to normal.  But talk to local women and a very different picture emerges.  Some said they were now nervous "walking past big groups of men" or have been told by their brothers or boyfriends that they're "crazy" to go home late alone.  Several said they had started carrying pocket knives and pepper spray, anything to keep themselves safe.

Stand by for Collision.  One of the more interesting aspects of the European cover-up of mass sex assaults by so-called refugees is that it abets abuse inflicted on Muslim women as well.  Before the story of the Cologne attacks broke, Katin Bennhold of the New York Times wrote a piece on the abuse of refugee women on the migrant trail.  The story should have set alarm bells ringing in the West about what was coming up the trail towards them but it didn't. [...] Even before the NYT article was published, academic researchers were already writing about a malignant practice called taharrush, which has become the term for mass sexual harassment.

Why Feminism Failed Cologne's Women.  Big Feminism, fresh from fighting pitched battles against swimsuit posters in European subways and other phantoms of "rape culture", failed the women who were attacked by violent Muslim migrant mobs in Cologne, Berlin and Hamburg who were the products of an actual rape culture dating back to Mohammed's injunction to his men that Muslim women must wear burqas to avoid being "molested" while non-Muslim women captured in the House of War could be raped by Muslim Jihadis at will. [...] Feminism is only another of the many manipulative masks that the left wears.  Its acolytes cannot see rape as a personal crime, only as an ideological one.  To the left, rape, like racism, is a form of institutional oppression practiced by the stronger white male against everyone else.

Mass Muslim Immigration Will Bring Islam's Problems Here.  The recent events in Cologne and other German and Austrian cities represent a necessary, reality-based corrective to this absurd binary thinking.  On New Year's Eve, German women faced attacks from roaming gangs of North African and Middle Eastern immigrants, including asylum-seekers.  According to German officials, "sexual crimes took place on a huge scale."  More than 100 women were victimized in a single evening, with up to 1,000 attackers involved.  As my colleague Ian Tuttle notes, this sexual violence is part of a "disturbing trend" in European countries with large Muslim-immigrant populations.  Sweden now has the "third-highest rate of rape per capita in the world."  Britain's horrifying Rotherham rape scandal — where 1,400 children were systematically raped and abused over a period of 16 years while authorities turned a blind eye — still shocks the conscience.

When Worlds Collide: Unassimilable Muslim Migrants Crash Europe's Fantasy Islam.  First there was no news; then, a few disturbing hints of gropings and robberies by gangs of "Middle Eastern or North African" men.  Now, we know it was a mass atrocity — the only remaining question being:  How massive?  Upward of a thousand men, overwhelmingly Muslim, executed a coordinated series of attacks on an obvious target of opportunity:  street celebrations in the major cities of a reviled Western state, where they were certain to find throngs of young women and a police presence grossly inadequate to provide security — certainly not against a critical mass of Islamic supremacists.

Mayor of Cologne blames women for being raped.  The mayor of Cologne, Germany, made a statement about the war zone in her city on New Year's eve, courtesy of Muslim imports who threw fireworks into crowds, molested, raped, attacked, and robbed non-Muslims, while also getting into brawls among themselves.  Dozens of non-Muslims were victimized and the police believe there are many more victims who have yet to come forward.  A large number of women were groped and raped as multitudes of Muslim savages pulled their hair and ripped off their clothes, grabbing and invading every orifice of their bodies while laughing and calling them sluts.  Despite the scale of the violence and video cameras capturing much of it, the police only made five arrests.  And the one-sided war in Cologne on New Year's eve was covered up by officials and the media for several days.  So now we're in Phase 2, when leaders and the media decide what to say.  Heaven forbid it would resemble reality.

The Left's Embrace of Islamic Rape.  As the disturbing reports pour in about the New Year's Eve Muslim sex assaults in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Finland and other European countries, it has become clear that the new Utopian Multicultural Europe that the Left has worked so hard to build is now here.  Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker's response to the assaults under her watch has been to reprimand the victims, suggesting that they had asked for it.  She has vowed to make sure that women will change their behavior, so that they don't provoke Muslims to sexually assault them again.  There will now be published "online guidelines" for women to read so they can prepare themselves.  One wonders if it will be the burqa or the niqab that will be the solution of choice.

Germany on the Brink.  On New Year's Eve, in the shadow of Cologne's cathedral, crowds of North African and Middle Eastern men accosted women out for the night's festivities.  They surrounded them, groped them, robbed them.  Two women were reportedly raped.  Though there were similar incidents from Hamburg to Helsinki, the authorities at first played down the assaults, lest they prove inconvenient for Angela Merkel's policy of mass asylum for refugees.  That delay has now cost Cologne's police chief his job.

Sex Crimes Across Germany: The Coverup Unravels.  Britain's Daily Mail must be one of the world's oddest news sources, but occasionally it does some good original reporting.  That is the case with respect to its coverage of the epidemic of sexual assault that has erupted across Germany: [...] The common denominator, of course, is that the attackers were recent Islamic immigrants, most of them apparently "refugees."

The Police Response to the Groping Jihad.  Below is a translated article with a follow-up on the events of New Year's Eve in Cologne.  Nash Montana, who translated the article, includes this note with additional information: [...]

The Larger Motive Behind the Groping Jihad.  Before I get into the substance of tonight's essay, I'd like to offer my deep gratitude to Nash Montana, who became a translation dynamo during the aftermath of events in Cologne and other cities.  She translated three or four videos per day, and often an equal or greater number of articles.

When Worlds Collide: Unassimilable Muslim Migrants Crash Europe's Fantasy Islam.  What happens when the West's fantasy Islam collides with the reality of an imported critical mass of unassimilated — and defiantly unassimilable — Muslims?  Cologne happens.  Nor is it only Cologne.  That was just Ground Zero of the New Year's Eve rape jihad in Germany.  As National Review's Ian Tuttle notes in an alarming column about the predictable — and, if I may say, predicted — surge of sexual assault in a Europe overrun by "migrants," the jihad included similar episodes, albeit on a smaller scale, in Stuttgart, Hamburg, and even astride the Brandenburg gate in Berlin.

'It has nothing to do with being a Muslim' and other liberal fallacies.  Have you been reading about the epidemic of rape and sexual assault in Europe being committed by Muslim men on European women?  New Year's Eve turned out to be more like the "Night of the Living Dead" for hundreds of women who were tormented and abused by mobs of Muslim refugees in Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart and Dusseldorf in Germany, as well as in cities in Sweden, Finland, Switzerland and Austria.  In Cologne, hundreds of Arab and North African men were reported to be gathered on the streets and surrounding women who happened to pass by, groping and brutalizing them.  If you didn't read about it, you weren't alone.  For several days the German media didn't cover the reported sex mobs for fear of offending the delicate sensibilities of liberal Germans.  The mayor of Cologne, Henriette Reker, more or less confirmed that rape has nothing to do with Islamic men and everything to do with European women, when she discreetly advised the women, "It is always possible to keep a certain distance that is longer than an arm's length."

'It's fine to hit a wife who doesn't please you': What Islamic cleric is telling students as he tours British universities.  An Islamic cleric who defends domestic violence is among a string of extremist speakers touring British universities unchallenged, the Mail Investigations Unit can reveal.  Egyptian cleric Fadel Soliman spoke at five such events last year, using them to refer Muslim students to an online lecture series in which he speaks in favour of hitting women and outlines the Islamic case for sex slavery and polygamy.  Mr Soliman told students at Sheffield University that watching his lectures could be 'a turning point' in their lives.

Jihadist 'executed' own mother for pleading with him to quit ISIS.  The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the war in Syria from London, said that a number of reliable local sources told it of the killing, which took place on Wednesday [1/6/2016].  Activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS) also reported the incident.  It said that Ali Saqr al-Qasem, (20), shot his mother, Leena, in the head with an assault rifle in front of a large crowd.

ISIS member executes his mother for urging him to leave group.  An Islamic State militant executed his mother in public in the Syrian city of Raqqa because she had encouraged him to leave the group, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Friday [1/8/2016].  The woman in her 40s had warned her son that a US-backed alliance would wipe out Islamic State and had encouraged him to leave the city with her.  She was detained after he informed the group of her comments, according to the British-based Observatory, which monitors the war through a network of sources on the ground.

Afghan Woman Barbarically Lynched After Being Falsely Accused of Burning Quran.  As the police stood by and watched, a 27-year-old Muslim woman was brutally murdered by a mob in Kabul, Afghanistan after she was falsely accused of burning a Quran by an Islamic cleric.  The young Muslim woman, Farkhunda Malikzada, was viciously beaten, stoned, deliberately run over by a car, thrown into a dry river bed, crushed with larger stones, and then set on fire.

Slovakia vows to refuse entry to Muslim migrants.  Robert Fico said on Thursday that Slovakia would fight against immigration from Muslim countries to prevent attacks like last year's shootings in Paris and large-scale assaults of women in Germany, which took place on New Year's Eve.  "We don't want something like what happened in Germany taking place in Slovakia," Fico said, adding that the country must "prevent [its] women from being molested in public places."  According to reports by local German newspaper "Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger" and an online preview of investigations by Sunday paper "Welt am Sonntag," Cologne authorities have identified some of the perpetrators in the attacks as been Syrian asylum seekers.

Mass Sex Abuse in Cologne: Part of a Disturbing Trend.  Those wary about massive immigration from the Middle East and North Africa tend to look to Scandinavia because of its largesse toward migrants and refugees.  Sweden took in swathes of refugees from the war-torn Middle East and the Horn of Africa in the 1980s and then, in the 1990s, from the former Yugoslavia, and the trend persists.  In 2007, the Swedish town of Södertälje — population:  60,000 — took in nearly 1,300 Iraqi refugees, or 5 percent of all Iraqis who arrived in Europe that year.  And the number of refugees coming to Sweden tripled from 2010 to 2014.  Today, 16 percent of Swedish citizens were born in another country, and of Sweden's 1.7 million foreign-born citizens in 2010, almost a quarter were from the Middle East or the Horn of Africa, according to that year's Statistical Yearbook of Sweden.

Cologne New Year gang assaults: Mayor says women should have code of conduct to prevent future assault.  The Mayor of Cologne said today that women should adopt a "code of conduct" to prevent future assault at a crisis meeting following the sexual attack of women by 1000 men on New Year's eve.  Mayor Henriette Reker attended an emergency meeting with Chief of Police Wolfgang Albers and Wolfgang Wurm to discuss how to deal with the attack, where dozens of women were repeatedly touched and groped, with one case of alleged rape in the center of town.

Mayor of Cologne: Women should follow a "code of conduct" to stop themselves from being attacked by mobs of Middle Eastern men.  A sadly inevitable next chapter in the now infamous New Year's attacks.  The eternal question:  Who's assimilating whom? [...] Not only is she [the mayor of Cologne] blaming the victims, she's not remotely engaged with the reality of what happened.  How are you supposed to keep an "arm's length" when you're surrounded by a group of degenerates who, police suspect, showed up at the train station specifically intending to assault people?

Teenage victim of Cologne 'African and Arab' sex mob reveals how she and her friends were surrounded by 30 men and groped.  Police fear the violence in Cologne may be linked to a known criminal gang who use sexual assault as a means of distraction, as more than 100 women have so far reported being assaulted.  Two more victims have spoken out today on German TV, after they were sexually assaulted and attacked with fireworks during the city's New Year's Eve celebrations.  One woman, known only as Jenny, suffered serious burns when a firework was shoved into the hood she was wearing.

New Year's Migrant Sex Assault In Every Major German City.  German capital city Berlin has joined the sad parade of cities touched by migrant sex violence on New Year's Eve, with hundreds of assaults now reported to police in Cologne and other cities.  Although on a smaller scale to the unrestrained and un-policed sex attacks in Cologne, the Berliner Morgenpost has now reported on assaults taking place on the street "in front of the Brandenburg gate".

The Doorman's Story.  Ivan Jurcevic is a Croatian immigrant who works as a doorman (or perhaps a bouncer) at a hotel on the Hauptbahnhof Platz in Cologne.  On New Year's Eve (Silvester) he had a front row seat for the culturally enriched events that have now become notorious throughout Germany and the rest of the Western world.  In the following interview, Mr. Jurcevic gives an account of what he witnessed that night, and how he did his best to help women who were menaced, harassed, and molested by the "youths" who took over the main train station: [...]

Muslim Immigrants Conduct Military Scale Sexual Assault Against German Women.  As reported by the Dutch media source Elsevier, on New Year's Eve a large number of German women were physically and sexually assaulted in Cologne by a horde of Muslims, possibly numbering over 1,000. [...] Police Chief Wolfgang Albers's characterization of the event as a new dimension of violence is an understatement.  Far beyond criminal in nature, it was a military scale assault in a major German city with a population of over 1 million conducted almost certainly by male North African Muslim "immigrants" [some actually in possession of assylum [sic] documents] against non-Muslim women — a class often referred to within immigrant Islamic culture as "fresh meat."  Of note, such brutality is thoroughly consistent with the Shari'a.

Unprecedented sex harassment in Helsinki at New Year, Finnish police report.  Asylum seekers who met in central Helsinki to celebrate New Years's Eve "had similar plans" to commit sexual assault and other crimes as those who targeted women in the Germany city of Cologne, Finnish Police have reported.  Three Iraqi asylum seekers have been arrested for committing sexual assaults during the celebrations in the city's Senate Square, where some 20,000 had gathered.

Migrants in Germany fear backlash after sex assaults.  When asylum seeker Asim Vllaznim heard about the New Year's Eve spate of sexual attacks in Germany, blamed on a crowd of migrants, he says his spirits fell.  "Our first reaction was:  now the Germans will hate us," said the 32-year-old Kosovar, sitting with his family in their room at a migrant shelter in the western city of Cologne.  The city's ugly mob violence — including groping, other assaults, thefts and two reported rapes — has inflamed public opinion already strained by the influx of a record 1.1 million refugees and irregular migrants last year.

Women made to 'run gauntlet' in mass sexual attack in Germany.  The report, details of which were widely published by German media Thursday [1/7/2016], added to witness accounts describing a string of sexual assaults that have sparked a heated debate about migration and the police's failure to prevent the mayhem.

REDDIT Censors And Deletes News Stories About Muslim Rapists in Germany.  Liberals want more Muslim immigrants to flood the West so news stories which are damaging to that goal are being hidden from public view on Reddit.  Reddit is a fun site for pictures and viral links but politically, it's a left wing cesspool so this is hardly surprising.

Two teenage girls gang-raped by four 'Syrian nationals' in southern Germany.  Three Syrians have been arrested in southern Germany for the alleged gang rape of two teenage girls on New Year's Eve, as reports flood in of sexual assaults against women across the country.  A 21-year-old man and two 14-year-old boys are being held in Weil am Rhein, a small town near the Swiss and German borders, for the alleged rape of two girls aged 14 and 15.  Prosecutors allege that the two girls were held for several hours and gang-raped after attending a New Year celebration at the home of the 21-year-old man in the nearby village of Friedlingen.

Europeans Studiously Ignore Muslim Mobs.  I don't think German officials have quite thought this one through.  Either the misogynistic rioters included a significant number of recently arrived migrants or they did not.  If they did, then the migration fed directly into the riots; if they did not, then the rioters were people of "North African and Arab appearance" who had previously been law-abiding but who now felt able and entitled to assault local women in public without much fear of the consequences.  What changed them?  What gave them that confidence?

Cologne Assaults: Police Report Outlines 'Chaotic and Shameful' New Year's Eve.  Law enforcement officials lost control of the situation in Cologne on New Year's Eve, according to an internal report by Germany's national police, the Bundespolizei, obtained by DER SPIEGEL.  The author of the report, dated Jan. 4, is a senior official.  He writes:  "Women, accompanied or not, literally ran a 'gauntlet' through masses of heavily intoxicated men that words cannot describe."  The horde in front of and inside the train station was unmoved by the presence of police.

'Angela Merkel invited us': How baying asylum seeker sex mob taunted Cologne police after robbing and raping women.  Grinning asylum seekers taunted police trying to break up the ugly rabble who turned central Cologne into a lawless 'open toilet' — by telling them to be 'nice' -- because they'd been invited by Angela Merkel.  The sex mob of migrant Arab and North African men tore up their temporary residence permits and threw them at officers who battled through New Year's Eve to regain control of the streets, which were covered in faeces and vomit.  Outside the city's historic cathedral, where the 1,000 'drunk and stoned' migrants sexually assaulted and robbed 100 women declared:  'You can't do anything to me — I will get myself a new one in the morning.'

Horrifying details emerge of Cologne attacks.  Information continues to emerge on the war zone that erupted in Cologne, Germany on New Year's Eve, when thousands of imports from Islamic lands threw bottles and fireworks into crowds and at the police, as well as molested, raped, attacked, robbed, knifed, spat, defecated, urinated, vomited, ranted, and raved as they turned an area of a beautiful city into a site of utter barbarism.  (Other cities in Germany experienced similar violence on New Year's Eve, which is only now beginning to be reported.)  One victim had a firecracker shoved into the hood of her jacket.  When she tried to get it out, it fell into her jacket, causing serious burns across her shoulder.

Women in Several Other European Cities Also Victims of Sex Assaults by Muslim Men on NYE.  This story keeps getting more bizarre and even the most hardened humanitarian/politically correct politician has to be wondering what the hell Europe has let itself in for.  Women in some other European cities are also complaining that they were sexually assaulted and robbed on New Years Eve by large groups of Muslim men.  And like Cologne, the police refused to publicize the mass attacks. [...] So what's changed from previous years' celebrations? [...] If you think about it a second, only one explanation comes to mind:  refugees from the Middle East have arrived in massive numbers.

18 Asylum Seekers are Tied to Attacks on Women in Germany.  The German authorities on Friday [1/8/2016] tied asylum seekers for the first time to the wave of violent assaults on women in Cologne on New Year's Eve as debate intensified over whether the country had made a mistake in opening its doors last year to more than a million migrants.  The Interior Ministry said 18 of the 31 people identified so far as suspects in the violence in Cologne had applied for asylum in Germany.  The disclosure further stoked fears about security and culture clashes between the newcomers, mostly from Muslim countries, and Germans who are confronting the costs of assimilating them.

New Year's Eve sex assaults also reported in Finland, Sweden and Austria.  Police in the western German city of Cologne said they had received 120 criminal complaints by Thursday [1/7/2016] and quoted witnesses as saying that groups of 20-30 young men "who appeared to be of Arab origin" had surrounded victims, assaulted them and in several cases robbed them on New Year's Eve.  Similarly Finnish police have revealed an unusually high level of sexual harassment in Helsinki on New Year's Eve and said they had been tipped off about plans by groups of asylum seekers to sexually harass women.

Germany in Shock as 1,000 Suspected "Refugees" Rob, Attack, or Rape 100 Women.  Yesterday [1/4/2016], we were shocked to learn that as German anger boils over at the country's unprecedented refugee wave, one or more so far unknown assailants fired shots through the window at a home for asylum seekers in western Germany injuring one resident as he was sleeping. [...] Today, we are just as shocked to read that, even as we expected, the animosities between the two groups have dramatically escalated, and that the mayor of Cologne has summoned police for crisis talks after nearly 100 women reported they were robbed, threatened or sexually molested at the New Year's celebrations outside the city's cathedral by young, mostly drunk, men, police said on Tuesday [1/5/2016].  One woman said she was raped.

Coverup of Mass Molestations on New Year's Eve in Cologne Draws Ire.  Oh, how the German authorities wanted to bury this story.  But when nearly a hundred women reported sexual molestation by a crowd of Arabs numbering nearly 1,000 during the Silvester celebrations in the heart of Cologne, the news got out: [...]

Germans Outraged After Gang of 1000+ Men Sexually Assault NYE Revelers.  A major outrage is brewing in Germany after a massive gang of over a thousand men went on a crime spree on New Year's Eve, sexually assaulting, robbing, and even reportedly raping a woman in the city of Cologne.  German police denounced what they call "a completely new dimension of crime," and say that around 60 complaints have been filed, including one rape accusation.  The BBC reports that one of the women who was sexually assaulted was a volunteer police officer, and that the gang seemed organized beforehand, "seemingly with the specific intention of carrying out attacks on women."

New dimension of crime': Crowd of 'Arab origin' blamed for mass sexual assaults in Cologne on NYE.  New Year celebrations in the German city of Cologne descended into chaos with a series of sexual assaults, including a rape.  The attackers were described by witnesses to police as an crowd of intoxicated men of "Arab or North African" origin.  The mass attack on women "in the middle of the city" around Cologne Central Station on New Year's Eve was "an intolerable situation," Chief of Police Wolfgang Albers told reporters.  So far the authorities have received 60 complaints.  The crowd, which consisted of around 1,000 men, attacked people in the city center in what Albers described as a "crime of a whole new dimension."

Mob of 1,000 Muslim 'Refugees' Rape and Steal at Train Station.  It was a horrific scene in Cologne on New Year's Eve.  The chaos and destruction committed by Muslim refugees that night is just now starting to calculate, and the damage done both physically and mentally to the people of Cologne is massive!

Non-German in Germany Brags About Gang Raping Young Virgin.  The German government imported over 1 million immigrants, almost all of them Muslims, in 2015 alone.  The colonists reproduce at a much higher rate than the native population; even if immigration were completely shut off now, the problem would continue to worsen dramatically.  Their contempt for women and non-Muslim women in particular is legendary, so rape statistics will be going through the stratosphere, leveling off only when the population has been totally displaced and Germany is a Muslim country.

Rules for Radical Raping.  Ever notice how al-Reuters will run with some terrorist group's freaking tweet like it was the Pronouncement of the Oracle at Delphi, and happily follow a satirical Kim Jong Un social-media account down the rabbit hole, but anything from, say, the United States or the United Kingdom, and they're rolling out the skepticism and qualifications?  So, what was the fatwa about?  In a phrase, it was How to Rape your Sex Slaves.

ISIS sets rules for raping captive women.  Most of what the terrorist army of ISIS has done in its murderous march across a wide swath of the Mideast these last two years appears incomprehensible to outside eyes:  video beheadings, mass street killings, children enlisted to execute neighbors, victims tossed from tall buildings.  Now one document from a stash seized during a bold Special Ops raid into Syria seven months ago has provided a shocking window into the medieval minds of these radical Islamic extremists who would impose harsh Sharia law wherever their caliphate spreads.  Hard to believe we're reading such material in what to most of the world is the 21st century.

Honor killing in America: DOJ report says growing problem is hidden in stats.  The estimated 27 victims of so-called "honor killings" each year in the U.S. don't fit neatly into the FBI's exhaustive Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics.  Hidden among thousands of nondescript murders and cases labeled as domestic violence are a mounting number of killings motivated by a radical and dark interpretation of Islam. Honor killings and violence, which typically see men victimize wives and daughters because of behavior that has somehow insulted their faith, are among the most secretive crimes in society, say experts.

Islamic State ruling aims to settle who can have sex with female slaves.  Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when "owners" of women enslaved by the extremist group can have sex with them, in an apparent bid to curb what they called violations in the treatment of captured females.  The ruling or fatwa has the force of law and appears to go beyond the Islamic State's previous known utterances on the subject, a leading Islamic State scholar said.  It sheds new light on how the group is trying to reinterpret centuries-old teachings to justify the sexual slavery of women in the swaths of Syria and Iraq it controls.

Irish Muslim Convert Beheads, Dismembers His Mother in Savage Honor Killing Inspired by the Quran.  Islamic honor killing is a religious imperative under Islam.  Muslims commit 91 percent of honor killings worldwide.  And yet even in death, the victim is violated again, as the motive is denied or refused.  Islamic supremacists and their lefttwing lapdogs immediately go into scrub mode, denial mode, instead of a logical and rational response, "we must expunge Islam of the honor code of violence and Islamic texts and teachings that encourage the slaughter of our wives, mothers and daughters."  Perhaps the reason why honor killings are spiking in the West (and in places like Gaza) is because they are sanctioned by sharia law, sanctioned by Muslim countries and sanctioned by a silent Western media.

Irish convert to Islam beheads his mother in honor killing.  [Scroll down]  The Palestinian Authority gives pardons or suspended sentences for honor murders.  Iraqi women have asked for tougher sentences for Islamic honor murderers, who get off lightly now.  Syria in 2009 scrapped a law limiting the length of sentences for honor killings, but "the new law says a man can still benefit from extenuating circumstances in crimes of passion or honour 'provided he serves a prison term of no less than two years in the case of killing.'"  And in 2003 the Jordanian Parliament voted down on Islamic grounds a provision designed to stiffen penalties for honor killings.  Al-Jazeera reported that "Islamists and conservatives said the laws violated religious traditions and would destroy families and values."  That's a whole lot of "misinterpretation of the Qur'an."

Worldwide Trends in Honor Killings.  In 2000, the United Nations estimated that there are 5,000 honor killings every year.  That number might be reasonable for Pakistan alone, but worldwide the numbers are much greater.  In 2002 and again in 2004, the U.N. brought a resolution to end honor killings and other honor-related crimes.  In 2004, at a meeting in The Hague about the rising tide of honor killings in Europe, law enforcement officers from the U.K. announced plans to begin reopening old cases to see if certain murders were, indeed, honor murders.  The number of honor killings is routinely underestimated, and most estimates are little more than guesses that vary widely.  Definitive or reliable worldwide estimates of honor killing incidence do not exist.

Muslim engineer kidnapped his female colleague and raped her for five days 'to convince her to convert to Islam'.  An Indian man has been accused of kidnapping and raping a female colleague for five days to force her to convert to Islam.  Engineer Syen Emad Hasan, 30, proposed to the 27-year-old woman but she rejected him and said her family would not allow 'an inter-religious marriage', police said.  He harassed her until she cut short a work trip to Dubai.  When she returned home to confront Hasan, he abducted her, locked her up at his house and took away her phone.

New York Magazine Makes Light Of Female Genital Mutilation.  In a remarkable screed, New York Magazine's Ed Kilgore dismisses established reports documenting the rise of Female Genital Mutilation in the United States stemming from years of large-scale Muslim migration.  Kilgore, a self-described "veteran Democratic wonk", took issue with a Breitbart News report detailing how Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)'s omnibus spending bill fully funds all visa programs utilized by Muslim migrants and, in fact, expands those programs to fund President Obama's new Syrian refugee resettlement operation.  In the piece, Breitbart News reports that by funding and expanding these visa programs, Ryan's omnibus enables next year's admission of nearly 300,000 Muslim migrants on autopilot visas.

Muslim Gang-Rape Marathons Continue Across Europe: Where's The Press?  Political-correctness now extends to the identification of rapists in Europe where the press continually under-reports the high incidence of the most heinous sexual assaults and gang-rapes you can hardly imagine.  The true War on Women is being waged as we speak in the form of child-rape, sexual assault, paedophilia and gangs of Muslim men brutally raping women, in marathon fashion while crowds cheer them on and the press all but ignores.

"Swedish Problem" is Here: Muslims Gang Rape 39 year old woman in upscale DC exurb; crickets in major media.  The following story unfortunately is a sad and growing problem across the Western world, one that is going to be replicated in every town and city across the US unless citizens begin to vocally, forcefully and equivocally say NO.  Haymarket, VA is a wealthy, upscale exurb of Washington DC that has gone in less than 10 years from a sleepy majority white rural hamlet to a sprawling landscape of McMansions occupied by the multicultural box checking apparatchiks that fill out Tables of Organizations in bloated DC agencies.  It has turned a formerly solid red Republican congressional district rabid Blue.  With the multiculturalism and diversity and tolerance comes a crime wave that was before unknown.  If it's not black males in hoodies committing armed robberies, which has now come to be "expected", it's that most pronounced high water mark of multiculturalism:  Muslim gang rape.  Not a word in any of the major media.

Suppose there was an ideology.  Suppose the adherents of that ideology believed:
  •   Homosexuals and transsexuals should be executed.
  •   Women should be punished for the crime of being raped.
  •   The word of a woman is worth half that of a man in a court of law.
  •   Western culture, including pluralism, tolerance, freedom of expression, the rule of law, etc. is an abomination.
  •   Men can beat their wives for such transgressions as refusing sex or leaving the house without permission.
  •   Men can divorce their wives by saying three times "I divorce you."
  •   Women should not be permitted to drive.
  •   Girls' genitals should be mutilated to ensure that as adults they do not experience sexual pleasure.
  •   Anyone who strays from the ideology should be put to death.
  •   Anyone who disagrees with the ideology is inferior and should be subjugated, and subject to harassment, extra taxes, and other punishments.
  •   The teachings of the ideology take precedence over the United States Constitution and federal code.
Suppose that adherents of that ideology were responsible for 99% of terrorist attacks worldwide, including some 27,000 documented terror attacks since 9/11, 169 just last month.  [...] How many adherents of that ideology should we take?

Rape Culture: The Real Thing.  We hear a lot about "rape culture" at American universities, but no one actually believes it.  If we did, we wouldn't send our daughters off to college.  It appears there is such a thing, however; American liberals have just been looking in the wrong place.  The New York Times headlines:  "Norway Offers Migrants a Lesson in How to Treat Women."  We aren't talking about etiquette lessons here.

Headdress spectrum
Pew Research: How People in Muslim Countries Believe Women Should Dress.  Writing at Pew Research last year, Jacob Poushter shared University of Michigan research revealing how Muslim populations believe women should (be forced to) dress. [...] The survey treated the question of women's dress as a visual preference.  Each respondent was given a card depicting six styles of women's headdress and asked to choose the woman most appropriately outfitted for a public place.


President Obama Allows A Literal War On Women.  The Cameroon army has reportedly just killed about 100 Boka Haram jihadists and freed 900 hostages, no doubt a bulk of those women and children.  This should focus, even for just a fleeting moment, attention on the war on women and girls waged by militant Islamists imposing their particular brand of Sharia law.  Enough with the hyperbole.  This is the real war on women, and the Obama administration's disastrous foreign policies and refusal to identify the root of the problem have allowed the brutal oppressors to thrive.

Former University of Missouri assistant professor charged with 'violently grabbing 14-year-old relative by the hair and dragging her out of school for not wearing hijab'.  A former assistant professor at an American university has been arrested for allegedly grabbing a 14-year-old female relative by the hair and dragging her into a car after he noticed she wasn't wearing a hijab.  Youssif Z. Omar, 53, was reportedly at Hickman High School in Columbia, Missouri, on Tuesday [11/24/2015] when he spotted that the girl did not have the traditional Muslim headscarf.

The Real Scandal(s) Behind the Muslim MU Hair-Dragger.  On Wednesday, November 25, Youssif Z. Omar made international news.  According to Columbia, Missouri, police, the 53-year-old Omar stopped by the local public high school, spotted a 14-year-old relative not wearing a hijab, grabbed the girl "very violently by the hair," and pulled her down a flight of stairs.  Once outside, Omar slapped the girl in the face and pulled her by the hair into his car.  The police arrested him on suspicion of child abuse.  Omar posted a $4,500 bond and was released.  Omar has been affiliated with the notoriously confused University of Missouri.  Late Sunday night, November 29, university officials tweeted a correction to a story earlier that day by the New York Daily News, "Mr. Omar is not employed at Mizzou.  He was formerly a graduate student with an assistantship.  Job ended in July."  One element of the scandal is how the University of Missouri came to employ Omar and how it came to award him, so it appears, a Ph.D.

Islam, Rape and the Fate of Western Women.  Perhaps there is no European country where rape has reached epidemic proportions as it has in Sweden, a country now known as the "rape capital" of Europe.  Sweden ranks Number 2 on the global list of rape countries.  From 1975 to present, rape in Sweden has increased 1472%.  Based on this model, it is now projected that one in four Swedish women (and sometimes little girls) will be raped.  Rape of men and boys is also on the rise.  Making this nightmarish situation worse, the authorities hide what's going on, make outlandish excuses for it, and/or side with the rapists.  Dhimmitude has taken hold.  Few, if any, will state the truth:  that the majority of rapes in Sweden are committed by Muslim males.

Disclosure: The Four "Swedes" in Custody For Gang Rape Are Somali Citizens.  Ostentatious headlines in Aftonbladet, Expressen and other media declared that "six Swedes", later "eight Swedes" had been arrested for a rough gang rape on a Finland ferry.  Nya Tider is now the first newspaper to reveal that not even the white lie that the arrested Somalis are "Swedish citizens" is right — all the detainees are Somali citizens, and of all the suspects only one has a Swedish citizenship.

Sweden: Police hide identity of four migrant gang rapists.  Not only is Sweden importing the most violent and barbaric immigrants, but the police does not even resolve 90% of reported crimes.  In Europe crime is so widespread from Muslim immigration [in particular] that police don't even show up to crime scenes, giving immigrant criminals complete free range to attack, rape and kill civilians.  Media reports in various countries across Europe claim that the police force needs to be 400-600% larger just to cope with violent crimes, and double that to deal with all crimes.

Sweden: Unconscious woman is raped in Malmö in broad daylight, in front of eye-witnesses.  An unconscious woman was raped last Sunday morning [8/19/2015], in front of several witnesses, on a lawn in Malmö. [...] Several people have been witnesses to the assault, and one of them is reported to have taken up his cell phone and filmed the event with it.  The offender's arrest on the spot by the police and was taken into custody on Monday [8/24/2015], but his identity was not yet known.

Sweden — A raped country.  We are informed that female rape victims simply are prejudiced (implicitly racist) when they claim that the perpetrator has dark hair.  People that are subjected to serious crimes remember events wrongly and are controlled by preconceived notions. [...] Somalis — the largest group of immigrants admitted into Sweden, with an increase of 70 percent since last year — and Iraqis are climbing quickly up the rape scoreboard.  But we will never know the truth.  Apart from the reports 1996 and 2005, BRA suspended reporting the ethnicity of criminals in their statistics 1994.  Such facts are not desirable, no matter how true they are.

Muslims Say Swedish Women are Asking to be Raped.  Swedish girls Malin and Amanda were on their way to a party on New Year's Eve when they were assaulted, raped and beaten half to death by four Somali immigrants.  Sweden's largest newspaper has presented the perpetrators as "two men from Sweden, one from Finland and one from Somalia", a testimony as to how bad the informal censorship is in stories related to immigration in Sweden.  Similar incidents are reported with shocking frequency, to the point where some observers fear that law and order is completely breaking down in the country.  The number of rape charges in Sweden has tripled in just above twenty years.  Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six — 6 — times as common today as they were a generation ago.  Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too.  Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas.

Muslim (pedophile) rape wave: 1,000 rapes reported in Stockholm in just 7 months.  The number of police reports concerning rape in Stockholm has increased by 16 percent so far this year.  A large part of the increase involves the rape of young girls.  The National Crime Prevention Council published the statistics today.  More than 1,000 rapes have been reported in the county during the first seven months.  A large part of the increase of rapes concerns the rape of girls under 15.  According to BRA police in the county received 300 such reports so far this year."

Germany: Migrants' Rape Epidemic.  A growing number of women and young girls housed in refugee shelters in Germany are being raped, sexually assaulted and even forced into prostitution by male asylum seekers, according to German social work organizations with first-hand knowledge of the situation. [...] Conditions for women and girls at some shelters are so perilous that females are being described as "wild game" fighting off Muslim male predators.  But many victims, fearing reprisals, are keeping silent, social workers say.

Rape jihad in Denmark: More than half of all convicted rapists have immigrant backgrounds.  As JihadWatch has reported, 100 percent of convicted rapists in Oslo have non-Western background.  According to the Oslo police, non-Western immigrants rape because they are brought up with a view of women that makes them more likely to become rapists.  It would be more precise to say that they just follow their religion, which allows them to rape non-Muslim women.  In 2010, 51.5 percent of all convicted rapists had immigrant backgrounds.

Muslim gang-rapes across Europe under-reported in press.  High profile-gang rapes in India have been in the headlines since December.  The phenomenon is growing across Europe too, but tends to be under reported due to the high incidence of Muslim perpetrators which makes it politically incorrect to mention.

Raping the Swedish Corpse.  Gatestone ran a comprehensive report on the state of Sweden under the press of tens of thousands of immigrants, most of whom who have neither an affinity for Sweden nor a fondness for Swedes, except as prey for rape, robbery, and mayhem.  The article, "Sweden descending into anarchy," of November 13th, by Ingrid Carlqvist, recounts the alarm Swedes are now feeling as the consequence of their government inviting countless barbarians into the country are becoming manifest.  The reality of multiculturalism is hitting home, and hard.

Try To Get Your Head Around This — Sweden Is Gone, Sweden Is Finished.  Sweden is now the rape culture of the world.  [Video clip]

Sweden: Rape Capital of the West.  Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300% and rapes by 1,472%. Sweden is now number two on the list of rape countries, surpassed only by Lesotho in Southern Africa.  Significantly, the report does not touch on the background of the rapists.  One should, however, keep in mind that in statistics, second-generation immigrants are counted as Swedes.  In an astounding number of cases, the Swedish courts have demonstrated sympathy for the rapists, and have acquitted suspects who have claimed that the girl wanted to have sex with six, seven or eight men.

1 in 4 Swedish Women Will Be Raped as Sexual Assaults Increase 500%.  Sweden now has the second highest number of rapes in the world, after South Africa, which at 53.2 per 100,000 is six times higher than the United States.  Statistics now suggest that 1 out of every 4 Swedish women will be raped.

Austrian jihadi bride beaten to death after trying to escape ISIS: friend.  One of the two teens who fled Austria last year to become a "poster girl" for ISIS has been beaten to death after trying to escape the group's Syrian stronghold of Raqqa, reports say.  A Tunisian woman who had been living with Samra Kesinovic, 18, says the young girl was killed by Islamic State extremists after she tried to flee recently, according to The Local Austria.

Here's some free advice for all self-hating white women who are desperately hunting for a husband:  Learn from other people's experiences and don't marry a Muslim immigrant unless you want to be honor-killed the first time you disgrace him and his family, e.g., by driving a car or appearing in public with your head uncovered or (of course) trying to renounce and leave Islam.

Video Exposes Truthful Evidence that Our Leaders Won't.  The waves of Syrian and other Muslim refugees inundating Europe have often been met by clapping and cheering Germans or Swedes singing their version of "this land is your land."  But the refugees already knew that sappy tune, which is why they came so far in the first place.  They knew they would be given other people's money.  They knew their hosts were bent on demographic suicide due to paltry birthrates.  And they knew the women and young girls at the end of their journey were ripe for sexual conquest because the men would do little about it.

ISIS Buried Older Non-Muslim Women it Didn't Want to Rape in Mass Grave.  This is unfortunately a consequence of the Islamic view of non-Muslims and women practiced by ISIS.  These Yazidi women were unfortunate enough to be both.  They also were a little older.  So they were of no use to their Islamic State captors and they were murdered.

Honor killing in America: DOJ report says growing problem is hidden in stats.  The estimated 27 victims of so-called "honor killings" each year in the U.S. don't fit neatly into the FBI's exhaustive Uniform Crime Reporting Statistics.  Hidden among thousands of nondescript murders and cases labeled as domestic violence are a mounting number of killings motivated by a radical and dark interpretation of Islam.  Honor killings and violence, which typically see men victimize wives and daughters because of behavior that has somehow insulted their faith, are among the most secretive crimes in society, say experts.

Fears Rise Over Child Bride Epidemic as Young Girls Go Missing in Europe.  The already controversial issue of the European migrant crisis has worsened as countries face the problem of granting asylum to girls who got married in Syria but fall below the age of consent in their adopted country.  The issue of Syrian child brides has been highlighted in the Netherlands by the disappearance of a nine-month pregnant 14 year old girl and her 24 year old husband, reports The Independent.

Suspected 'honor killing' stokes German fears about customs, crimes of Middle Eastern refugees.  The alleged "honor killing" last month of a young pregnant woman who fled Syria after being gang raped is the latest case to leave Germans horrified by the crimes and customs of some of the refugees pouring in from the war-torn Middle East.  The woman, identified only as Rokstan M., fled Syria in 2011 after being gang-raped by Syrian soldiers and found work as an interpreter.  After authorities in the small, eastern city of Dessau discovered her body, stabbed and buried behind a housing complex for Syrian refugees Friday [10/9/2015], suspicion has focused on her father and brothers, who prosecutors believe may have killed her because the gang rape left her "unclean."

ISIS soldiers told to rape women 'to make them Muslim'.  [Scroll down]  Noor (not her real name) was sold into slavery after ISIS overran her village in the Iraqi province of Sinjar.  The 22-year-old says the militant who picked her out raped her — but not before trying to justify himself.  "He showed me a letter and said, 'This shows any captured women will become Muslim if 10 ISIS fighters rape her.'  There was a flag of ISIS and a picture of Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi."  After abusing her, he passed her on to 11 of his friends, who also raped her.

Where's the feminist outrage over ISIS's savage treatment of women?  Why would any woman who lives in a free society in the West choose to live under ISIS's barbaric tyranny?  Doesn't she know that Syrian and Iraqi women (Muslims, Christians, Yazidis, Kurds) are desperate to flee the region, that they fear being captured, forcibly married, forcibly converted to Islam — or tortured as sex slaves?  I ask these questions because the Washington Post is currently running an in-depth look at "Life in the 'Islamic State.'"  Part two of the multi-part series focuses on women.  The report is chilling and difficult to read.  The Post's series reminds us that not all women are treated the same way under the men in charge of ISIS. — There are wives and then there are literally sex slaves.

Syrian gang rape victim who fled to Germany after her ordeal is stabbed to death in honour killing.  A woman whose family branded her 'unclean' after she was gang-raped in her Syrian homeland has been found murdered in Germany — allegedly on the orders of her own mother.  Police believe the victim, named only as Rokstan M, 20, was stabbed to death by her father and brothers in the twisted logic that she had brought disgrace on her family through the sex attack.

Yep, it's a good thing you committed a cold-blooded murder, so your family can remain honorable!  More importantly, you can retain your good standing with the Religion Of Peace.

India: Muslim father kills his 4-year-old daughter for forgetting to cover her head while eating.  The hijab, the niqab and the burqa are the symbols of Islamic misogyny and manifestations of a culture that considers violence against women acceptable — the quran even says to beat women from whom a man may "fear disobedience" (4:34).  I am sure, therefore, that this kind of thing happens far more often than is reported.  Even when little girls as young as this are the victims.  And why do 4-year olds have to be covered?  To stop Muslim men from desiring them?

Muslim Rape 'Misunderstandings' Come to Europe.  After Muslim terrorist attacks, we're told that the killers just "misunderstood" their religion.  They misunderstood the peaceful nature of Koranic verses such as "Kill them wherever you find them", "They should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides" and "Strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them".  But the misunderstandings of Islam are just getting started.  Not only are Americans and Europeans being murdered by Muslim terrorists due to these unfortunate misunderstandings, but European girls are being raped because of more misunderstandings.

German Muslim Strangles [His] Own Daughter Because She Shoplifted Condoms.  A Muslim man in Germany has confessed to strangling his 19-year-old daughter to death as her mother watched, because she was caught shoplifting condoms.  The man was planning a forced marriage for his daughter and did not approve of the boy she was dating.  Asadullah Khan, 52, and his wife Shazia, 41, both Ahmadiyya Muslims originally from Pakistan, are accused of murdering their daughter Lareeb for bringing so-called "dishonor" on the family, reports German paper Bild.

Muslim father kills daughter caught shoplifting condoms.  A Muslim father has admitted to strangling his 19-year-old daughter to death after she was caught shoplifting condoms to use with a man she had been forbidden from dating.  Asadullah Khan, 51, used his bare hands to strangle his daughter Lareeb because she had brought "dishonor" to the family, the court in Germany heard.  His wife, Shazia Khan, 41, is also on trial for their daughter's murder as she did not attempt to stop him.

Wealthy Middle Eastern Thug Privilege.  You've heard endlessly about "white privilege" from the professional social justice warrior gripers.  But rarely does that crusading crowd — or their spiritual leaders in the White House — acknowledge the brutal impact of wealthy Middle Eastern thug privilege in America.  The latest case of WMET privilege involves a well-connected Saudi prince arrested on Wednesday [9/23/2015] after allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at his $40 million Beverly Hills rental mansion.  Witnesses reported seeing a bloodied woman screaming for help as she scrambled over an 8-foot wall surrounding the property.  LAPD officers charged 28-year-old Majed Abdulaziz al-Saud with sodomy, battery and false imprisonment.  Celebrate diversity!

More women reportedly accuse Saudi prince after sex crime arrest.  More women have reportedly accused a Saudi prince of attacking them, two days after he was arrested for allegedly trying to force a female worker to perform a sex act on him.  The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that Los Angeles Police are investigating other claims that Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 28, also attacked other women.  Al-Saud was arrested on Wednesday [9/23/2015] [...]

'Despicable' Saudi prince 'sexually abused multiple women during three-day party at his $37m Beverly Hills compound'.  A Saudi Prince sexually abused and beat at least three women during a three-day party in his $37 million Beverly Hills home, a new lawsuit claims.  The graphic new allegations against Majed Abdulaziz Al-Saud, 28, were filed by his alleged victims on Friday night [9/25/2015].

Saudi royal family member arrested for sexual assault in L.A..  Our "allies" from Saudi Arabia aren't very good house guests.  Out in Los Angeles there is yet another case of a foreign diplomat gone wild, with a member of the Saudi royal family standing accused of sexual assault on a female employee who was found bleeding and attempting to scale the walls to escape their compound. [...] The rather vanilla reporting from NBC goes on to note that Al-Saud was released on $300K bail and has a court date next month.  You know what that means, of course.  This guy is going to leave the country claiming diplomatic immunity and nobody will lift a finger to stop him.

A Phony Campaign For 'Women-Friendly Mosques'.  As usual, U.S. Muslim leaders are merely paying lip service to reform.  Responding to growing criticism from feminists within the Muslim community itself, the nation's largest and most powerful Muslim organization — the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) — has launched a national drive to "reform" the way Islamic centers treat Muslim women.  During a special session at the group's 52nd annual convention in Chicago, ISNA called for "inclusive, women-friendly mosques across America."  The reforms are found in a document titled "ISNA Statement on the Inclusion of Women in Masjids (Mosques)."  Its campaign has received rave reviews from the mainstream media.  The New York Times called it "quite significant," while the Huffington Post gushed, "Change is on the way."

UK: Muslim rape gangs could have abused 1,000,000 children; authorities kept silent for fear of being called "racist".  "Talking about her concerns of corruption within the police force she pointed out the IPCC started their investigation within a month they had suspended 14 police officers."  The police officers are just fall guys.  They're not responsible for the political culture that made authorities cower in fear of being smeared with charges of "racism" and "Islamophobia" for doing anything about these predators.  In Rotherham, British officials "described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist; others remembered clear direction from their managers not to do so."  If the British authorities really want to root out this problem, they need to prosecute Nick Lowles and Fiyaz Mughal and other responsible for the stigmatization of scrutiny of the Muslim community, and not content themselves with prosecuting some hapless cops.

While women overseas face true oppression, Western feminists dream up petty hashtags.  In August 2014, 12 members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard charged into 28-year-old artist Atena Farghadani's house, blindfolded her, and took her to prison.  She had posted a satirical cartoon on Facebook to protest proposed legislation to restrict birth control and women's rights.  Farghadani has since been found guilty of "spreading propaganda" and "insulting members of parliament through paintings."  She has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.  Farghadani is one of millions of women whose basic rights are being ruthlessly violated.  In countries like Iran, Yemen, Egypt, and Cambodia, women are struggling for freedoms most women in the West take for granted.

Mohammed Was a Pig.  Was Mohammed a pig?  He raped a little girl, forced his son to divorce his slave wife so he could have her, and took a number of captured non-Muslim women as slaves the same way the ISIS Caliph did.  Their numbers included a number of captured Jewish women, Safiyah and Rayhana, as well as Arab women such as Juwayriyah.  Rape and sexual slavery was a way of life for Mohammed and his men.  By any civilized standard, Mohammed was a pig and worse.  And yet instead of calling out those who praise a rapist and a pedophile, we lock up the young women who dare call out his piggishness.

CNN's Cuomo Fears NYT Piece Detailing ISIS Raping Women and Girls Casts Negative Light On Islam.  Thursday [8/13/2015], The New York Times published a disturbing piece about the Islamic State having enshrined "a theology of rape," specifically against women and girls who aren't Muslim.  In other words, if the female isn't Muslim, it's totally fine to assault her, sell her, and keep as property. [...] Yet, for CNN's Chris Cuomo, the New York Times piece might promote stereotypes.

Islamic State leader raped American hostage, US finds.  American hostage Kayla Mueller was repeatedly forced to have sex with Abu Bakr Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State group, U.S. intelligence officials told her family in June.

In Dubai, Father Keeps Lifeguards from Rescuing Drowning Daughter to 'Save Her Honor'.  A father in Dubai took his family to the beach for a picnic and some fun in the sun, only to have the day turn into needless tragedy.  The father's daughter began to drown a short distance from shore when lifeguards began the attempt to rescue her.  But the father — who is apparently very strong — restrained the lifeguards from doing their job because "he prefers his daughter being dead than being touched by a strange man."

The Editor says...
I wonder if this plan was made clear to the young lady before they loaded up the car and headed to the beach.

Filmmaker Tells Congress: ISIS Raped 'Girls as Young as Nine'.  Documentary filmmaker Edward Watts told members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee last week that thousands of non-Muslim girls, many of them from Yazidi communities, are forced into sexual slavery and ordered to marry Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists.  "In the course of my work, I documented ISIS's abduction of thousands of non-Muslim women and girls, their sexual enslavement and even the rape of girls as young as nine," Watts said.  "I gathered testimony that described markets where ISIS trade young women like cattle, or even rent them to each other for a few hundred dollars.

Selling Women in the Islamic State Caliphate.  The Islamic State recently sold 42 Yazidi girls to its jihadist fighters.  However, they have been sold for different prices in different places, mostly very cheaply.  In order to highlight how poorly the Islamic State values women, Clarion Project presents some prices of consumer goods in the United States by way of comparison.  The 42 Yazidi girls were sold by ISIS in Syria.  The prettier the woman, the more expensive she is.  Blue-eyed girls are priced higher than less 'exotic' girls.

UK Police Knew And Did Nothing To Protect Girls From Muslim Predators.  Not only do recent revelations concerning the endemic sexual grooming of British girls by Muslim men demonstrate how crippling political correctness is, but they show how political correctness complements the most abusive elements of Islamic law, or Sharia.  According to a June 24 report by the Birmingham Mail, as far back as March 2010, West Midlands Police knew that Muslim grooming gangs "were targeting children outside schools across the city — but failed to make the threat public."

150 ISIS Sex Slaves Commit Suicide, Some Fed to Dogs.  At least 150 Yazidi women and girls killed themselves after they were forced to become Islamic State sex slaves, according to a woman working with some of the survivors who managed to escape.  In one of the most comprehensive accounts of the effects of Islamic State brutality, details emerged of the ordeals faced by hundreds of Yazidi women, very often after their male relatives were butchered by Islamic State members.

Megyn Kelly Hammers SPLC for 'Women Against Islam' Hate List.  Tuesday [6/23/2015] on Fox News Channels "The Kelly File" host Megyn Kelly and her guest radio host Richard Fowler got into a heated exchange over the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) new list of women who have spoken out against radical Islam.  Activist Pamela Geller, conservative author Ann Coulter, radio talk show host Laura Ingraham, and Fox News host Judge Jeanie Pirro are a few of the woman featured on what is being referred to as a hit list.

SPLC Issues Hit List of 12 Conservative Women Who Speak Out Against Radical Islam.  The Southern Poverty Law Center has posted a list of "Women Against Islam" which targets twelve prominent conservative women who are known to speak out against radical Islam, calling them "the most hardline anti-Muslim women activists in America."  Judicial Watch described the list as "a starter kit" for jihadists to go after the women like Floyd Corkins went after the Family Research Council in August of 2012.

Obama-linked Extremist Group Publishes "Hit List" of Anti-Sharia Females in the U.S..  The Obama-tied leftist group that helped a gunman commit an act of terrorism against a conservative organization has assembled a starter kit for Islamists to attack American women who refuse to comply with Sharia law, the authoritarian doctrine that inspires Islamists and their jihadism.  It's the summer special from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), an extremist nonprofit that lists conservative organizations that disagree with it on social issues on a catalogue of "hate groups."  A few years ago a gunman received a 25-year prison sentence for carrying out the politically-motivated shooting of the Family Research Council (FRC) headquarters after admitting that he learned about the FRC from the SPLC "hate map."

Michelle Obama misses the irony.  Of all the schools in all the towns in all the world, why did Michelle Obama visit a girls' school in the Islamic Republic of Tower Hamlets this week?  She says it was her own choice to make a speech on education at the Mulberry School for Girls.  But was it?  I doubt the First Lady had ever heard of the school before this trip, and probably couldn't point to Tower Hamlets on a map.  My guess is that the venue was chosen deliberately by the Department for Education to showcase our new, rigorously enforced State religion:  'Celebrating Diversity'.

British Waterpark Bans Women From Wearing Bikinis And Other 'Non-Sharia Compliant' Swimwear.  A British waterpark in Stoke-on-Trent has sparked fury among civilized people by banning bikinis and ordering non-Muslim visitors to cover up in 'Islamically appropriate' body bags for women-only pool hours.

Anyone Seen the "Feminists"?  [Scroll down]  This is the revolting double standard of Western feminists, who are always ready to denounce the "homophobic" Christians, sexism on the US campus or the Israeli Ahava beauty creams.  These feminists have been busy the past few months fighting for the Irish referendum which just approved gay marriage, while treating as heretics, criminals and sexual predators all the brave opponents of this vote against the natural family.  Feminists are also very busy in Israel in demonizing the traditional Orthodox Jewish families.  In the words of the feminist Rebecca Brink Vipond, "I won't take the bait of a patronizing call for feminists to set aside their goals in America to address problems in Muslim theocracies".

The West's "Ardent" Feminists Abandon Women to the Caliph.  After attacking a village, the Islamic State splits women from men and executes boys and men aged 14 and over.  The women and mothers are separated; girls are stripped, tested for virginity and examined for breast size and prettiness.  The youngest, and those considered the prettiest virgins fetch higher prices and are sent to Raqqa, the IS stronghold.  There is a hierarchy: sheikhs get first choice, then emirs, then fighters.  They often take three or four girls each and keep them for a month or so, until they grow tired of a girl, when she goes back to market.  At slave auctions, buyers haggle fiercely, driving down prices by disparaging girls as flat-chested or unattractive.  We heard about one girl who was traded 22 times, and another, who had escaped, told us that the sheikh who had captured her wrote his name on the back of her hand to show that she was his "property.'"

ISIS Is Torturing, Enslaving, And Murdering Women At A "Staggering" Rate, U.N. Official Says.  Women in ISIS strongholds are routinely raped, tortured, enslaved, and murdered by the Islamic extremists, who have made the brutalization of females a central element of their ideology, according to Zainab Hawa Bangura.

Islamic State Is Here — Want to Know What They Do to Little Girls?  A UN envoy recently interviewed girls as young as five who had been gang raped and one woman who had been married to 20 ISIS fighters and forced to undergo surgery each time to restore her virginity.  Read on.  Barack Obama doesn't talk about the genocide being committed by IS/ISIL/ISIS because it won't play into his narrative which is that the U.S. must retreat from the world and become a socialist state domestically.  He also doesn't care.  The horrors that are going on could be stopped by the U.S. but we won't.

Nigerian Army Rescues 160 Girls and Women from Boko Haram.  The Nigerian army freed at least 160 girls and women from the hands of Boko Haram, as it continued its advance on the Sambisa natural reserve, the last major stronghold of the jihadist group, Nigerian armed forces spokesman Col. Sani Usman reported on Thursday [4/30/2015].  Usman told the press that Nigerian forces released around 100 girls and 60 women, just two days after the army rescued 200 girls and 93 other women in the same area.

Al Jazeera America subject of $15M discrimination lawsuit.  A former employee of Al Jazeera America is suing the network for $15 million, alleging that a manager with close ties to top executives discriminated against female employees and made disparaging remarks about Jews and Israel.

A Muslim family murdered a woman for converting their daughter to Christianity.  A young Muslim girl in Texas, befriended an Iranian Christian.  The father blamed the Christian for his daughter converting to Christianity.  He murdered her.  10 months later, he murdered his daughter's Christian boyfriend.  At first, he made it look like self defense, but it was staged.  The mother and son are also being charged with murder of the Iranian girl and the other daughter is being charged with stalking.

Duke University Sides With Islamists Against Feminist Speaker.  Duke University's mission statement says it is dedicated to "promot[ing] an intellectual environment built on a commitment to free and open inquiry."  Yet when Asra Nomani, a journalist and author of two books, came to speak on "The Paradox of Women in Islam," the university almost rescinded her invitation.  The Muslim Students Association sent an email smearing her as a friend of "Islamophobes" and discouraged students from attending.

Husband sets wife on fire in Pakistan 'honour killing'.  A Pakistani man and his father have been arrested in the country's latest so-called "honour killing" after they set the son's wife alight for leaving the house without asking his permission, police said Sunday.

ISIS impregnates 9-year-old girl.  A 9-year-old girl is pregnant after being raped by ISIS savages in Iraq, a report said.  "The abuse she has suffered left her mentally and physically traumatized," said Yousif Daoud, a Canadian-based aid worker who recently returned from the region.  "This girl is so young she could die if she delivers a baby.  Even cesarean section is dangerous."  At least 10 different men with the Islamic State were said to have sexually assaulted the child, the Toronto Star reported.

Islam fatwas: Eating wife, toilet paper OK.  [Scroll down]  Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia the grand mufti has reportedly found a new definition of halal — determining that, in the event of extreme hunger, it is acceptable in Islam for a man to chop up his wife and eat her — or one of them as the case may be.  The edict has been attributed to Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah, though it is yet to be officially confirmed.

Oppressive View of Women Came with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Islam Conversion.  NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was born Lew Alcindor in New York City on April 16, 1947.  In 1971, at the age of 24, while playing for the Milwaukee Bucks, he converted to Islam and changed his name to one that means "the noble one, servant of the Almighty."  There was, however, an ugly side to Jabbar's conversion to Islam — a troubling and oppressive attitude towards women.

UN says Israel, not Iran, North Korea or Syria worst violator of human rights.  What country deserves more condemnation for violating human rights than any other nation on earth?  According to the U.N.'s top human rights body, that would be Israel.  Last week, Israel was the U.N.'s number one women's rights violator. This week it is the U.N.'s all-round human rights villain.  The U.N. Human Rights Council wrapped up its latest session in Geneva on Friday, March 27 by adopting four resolutions condemning Israel.  That's four times more than any of the other 192 UN member states.

UN Selects Nations That Abuse Women: One Country Made the List.  Who knew that the War on Women has now been isolated to one nation!  And if you think it's a Muslim nation, where women are stoned for just about any reason, or where women get acid thrown in their faces for not covering themselves enough, then you simply haven't evolved!  No, the one nation where women are still under fire is Israel, at least according to the United Nations.

The fruits of multiculturalism:
British Girls Raped by Muslim Gangs on "Industrial Scale".  Nearly 400 British girls as young as eleven are believed to have been sexually exploited by Muslim rape gangs in Oxfordshire over the past 15 years, according to a chilling new report.  It charges local officials with repeatedly ignoring the abuse due to a "culture of denial."  The scale of the abuse in Oxfordshire, a county in southeast England, mirrors similarly shocking accounts of the sexual exploitation of white British girls by Muslim gangs in Bristol, Derby, Rochdale, Rotherham and Telford, and implies that the problem is not isolated, but endemic.

UN Identifies 'Extremism and Conservatism' — Not Islam — As Impediments to Gender Equality.  Twenty years after a landmark U.N. conference on promoting gender equality, the head of the agency known as U.N. Women said Monday [3/9/2015] that a growing "conservative and extremist resistance" to equality between the sexes needs to be understood and confronted.  Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka called the problem "one of the new dangers" in the way of efforts to pursue the goal of global gender equality.  Neither she, nor a major report prepared for the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) meeting she was addressing in New York, identified radical Islamic ideology as a leading factor, although surveys have found Muslim nations fare worst in gender equality rankings.

Chicago: Muslim student arrested after sexually assaulting woman 'Fifty Shades' style.  A University of Illinois at Chicago student leader has been charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old female student in what Cook County prosecutors say was a re-enactment of scenes from the film "Fifty Shades of Grey."  Freshman Mohammad Hossain, 19, appeared shocked after a Cook County judge set his bail at $500,000, walking back to the lockup with his mouth wide open.

Why are jihadis so obsessed with porn?  Recently, London Mayor Boris Johnson described Jihadists as "porn driven losers" who have "low self-esteem and are unsuccessful with women."  He's on to something important and profound.  According to Syrian doctors in a report in the British media, ISIS fighters are buying frilly underwear for their wives and sex slaves — and subjecting them to abnormal and sadistic sexual practices.  They may well have learned this from pornography.  The Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden found a fairly extensive stash of modern pornography in his possession.

Hostage Kayla Mueller Was Given To ISIS Commander As "Spoil of War Trophy".  The first reports of this surfaced several days ago.  It now appears the reports were accurate.  Kayla Mueller was separated from all other hostages and given to an ISIS militant commander as a trophy.

ISIS Bans Cell Phones: Islamic State Chops Off Women's Hands, Whips Men For Calling Their Relatives, Using Telephones.  Jihadists with the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq reportedly cut off the hands of three women and whipped five men for violating a cell phone ban in Mosul, Iraq. The group also known as ISIS has warned that anyone caught using a cell phone would be subject to public whippings or worse.  ISIS opposes all phone use amid concerns residents will share sensitive information that would help the U.S.-led airstrike campaign against the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq, media reports indicate.

The Editor says...
If you are trying to prevent the use of cell phones, wouldn't it be simpler to shut off the cell phone towers?  Of course.  But that would require 21st century thinking, and the Muslims would much rather chop somebody's hands off — especially the hands of women.

Hundreds More Muslim Rape Gang Cases Discovered in UK.  The Muslim rape gang scandal in Britain just keeps getting worse.  Last August, the BBC reported that "at least 1,400 children were subjected to appalling sexual exploitation in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013, a report has found.  Children as young as 11 were raped by multiple perpetrators, abducted, trafficked to other cities in England, beaten and intimidated, it said." Five months later, not only has little been done to combat this scourge, but it has grown exponentially worse:  hundreds of new cases have been discovered, and one of the victims says that those who abused her are "untouchable."

More than 500,000 in U.S. could be at risk of female genital excision.  Nearly 507,000 women and girls in the United States could be at risk of female genital excision, including 57,000 in California, a new study has found.  That is more than twice the number that were thought to be at risk in 2000, the last year for which estimates are available.

Almost 500 cases of female genital mutilation identified in just one month in English hospitals.  Almost 500 newly identified cases of female genital mutilation (FGM) were reported by hospitals across England in one month, according to the latest figures.  An average of 15 cases were discovered each day in November, according to data published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).  Last November 466 cases of FGM were identified; while in October, the first month such figures were compiled, 455 cases were reported.

IS executing 'educated women' in new wave of horror says UN.  The UN on Tuesday decried numerous executions of civilians in Iraq by the Islamic State group, warning that educated women appeared to be especially at risk.  The jihadist group is showing a "monstrous disregard for human life" in the areas it controls in Iraq, the UN human rights office said.

Saudi Arabia publicly beheads woman in holy Mecca as blogger lashings are postponed.  Authorities in Saudi Arabia have publicly beheaded a woman in Islam's holy city of Mecca, prompting further criticism of the country's human rights record.  Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, a Burmese woman who resided in Saudi Arabia, was executed by sword on Monday [1/19/2015] after being dragged through the street and held down by four police officers.

Meet the honor brigade, an organized campaign to silence debate on Islam.  "You have shamed the community," a fellow Muslim in Morgantown, W.Va., said to me as we sat in a Panera Bread in 2004.  "Stop writing."  Then 38, I had just written an essay for The Washington Post's Outlook section arguing that women should be allowed to pray in the main halls of mosques, rather than in segregated spaces, as most mosques in America are arranged.

FBI raises stakes in hunt for man wanted in '08 killing of daughters.  The FBI is hoping to jump start the seven-year hunt for a Texas man suspected of murdering his two daughters by putting Yaser Said on its top 10 most wanted list and raising the reward for information leading to his arrest.  Authorities believe Said, an Egyptian national who drove a taxi in the Dallas area, shot daughters Sarah, 17, and Amina, 18, to death on Jan. 1, 2008.  Their bodies were found in his cab in the parking lot of the Omni Hotel in Irving.  Relatives say Said was enraged that his daughters had adopted a western lifestyle at odds with his strict Muslim beliefs.

Meriam Ibrahim Is Role Model of the Year.  In a year when some of the most exalted public figures in the United States distinguished themselves by advancing unjust causes or cowardly refusing to seriously resist them, a pregnant mother imprisoned in Sudan with her 18-month old American son set a standard for saintly courage.  Meriam Ibrahim is the role model of the year.  When a Sudanese court told Meriam she must renounce her Catholic faith and convert to Islam or be hung by the neck until dead, she gave a non-negotiable answer:  No.

Isis 'executes 150 women for refusing to marry militants' and buries them in mass graves.  Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights has claimed that Isis militants have executed at least 150 women in the Western province of Al-Anbar, Turkish media has reported.  A statement released by the ministry on Tuesday said the militants had attacked women before burying them in mass graves in Fallujah, according to the Anadolu Agency.  "At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah [...] after they refused to accept jihad marriage," the statement said.

ISIS Publish Pamphlet On How to Treat Female Slaves.  ISIS have released a list of rules about how females slaves, women and children should be treated once captured by Jihadi warriors.  The rules, published by the Research and Fatwa Department of ISIS in a pamphlet on 3rd December, are written in the form of questions and answers and say, among other things, that it is "permissible" to have sexual intercourse with, beat and trade non-Muslim slaves, including young girls.  As ISIS moved through the remote communities of northern Iraq in August, the group reportedly enslaved thousands of Yazidi women, whilst men were lined up by the side of the road and shot dead one by one into mass graves.

Saudi extends detention of women drivers.  Two Saudi women detained nearly a week ago for violating the kingdom's female driving ban were ordered held for 25 more days on Sunday [12/7/2014], a relative told The Associated Press.

A Fantasy-driven Muslim World can Never Become Modern.  Islam is the one remaining ruthless patriarchy in the world, yet "feminists" like Naomi Wolf happily work for Al Jazeera, owned lock, stock, and barrel by the desert patriarchs of Qatar — who also fund ISIS, the most evil Islamofascist religious gang to emerge so far.

UK: It Was "Racist" to Prosecute Muslim Rape Gangs.  Britain's Birmingham Mail reported last week that Birmingham's City Council buried a report about Muslim cab drivers exploiting non-Muslim girls back in 1990.  A researcher, Dr. Jill Jesson, drafted a report on this issue.  But, she explained, "the report was shelved, buried, it was never made public.  I was shocked to be told that copies of the report were to be destroyed and that nothing further was to be said.  Clearly, there was something in this report that someone in the department was worried about."

The Leftist and Islamic War on the Family.  While liberalism's War on Women meme and the sexism of Islamic law may seem like two opposites, they are actually mirror images of each other.  Muslims teach men to hate and fear women.  Liberals teach women to hate and fear men.  Liberalism promotes paranoia about the intentions of men while Islam teaches men to be paranoid about the intentions of women.  Liberalism treats masculinity as a pathology.  Islam treats femininity as the root of all evil.  Both ideologies insist that one gender and everything related to it is inherently tainted and that the only way to maintain a good society is to purge that gender and everything it represents from the public square.

How ISIS Wages a Brutal and Hideous War on Women.  The idea of an independent woman — a woman who can make decisions for herself and her family — is anathema to far-right Islamists.  To ISIS, women are a threat if they're not completely subservient to the men who rule them — the father, the brother, the husband.  They have no mobility; they are essentially enslaved. Anyone who defies the orthodoxy of the ruling male dominance is swiftly eliminated.

Wave of Acid Attacks in Iran.  "I was never more scared than I am now.  I am scared of going to class, doing normal chores, driving a car, and even walking in the street.  I am really afraid of motorcycles.  Do you know what will happen to my life if one of these people throw acid in my face?" Azita, a university student in Isfahan, anxiously told me.  Her neighborhood, Jolfa, has become a target of a new wave of acid attacks against young girls.

Woman beheaded for killing ISIS member who attempted to rape her.  According to a security source in Diyala province, the terrorist organization ISIS beheaded a 30 year old woman for killing one its members as he attempted to rape her in her home located northeast of Baquba.

Woman stoned to death by ISIS militants and her own father.  The same ISIS militants condemned worldwide for beheading journalists and aid workers released a gruesome video Tuesday of a young woman being stoned to death by a group of men — including her own father. [...] And because the leader of the mob is the woman's father, the man most shamed and humiliated by his daughter's alleged transgressions, he is awarded the group's highest honor: the biggest stone to cast and deliver the death blow.

Iran: Acid Attacks on Women Drivers Due to 'Improper Veiling'.  Acid attacks on women in the Iranian city of Isfahan (about 450 km from Tehran) has prompted rumors that the victims were not random, but targeted for not being veiled as deemed appropriate, reports the Jordan Times, citing AFP.  The spate of violence was reflected on social networks where it was stated that up to 13 of these acid attacks had been made on female drivers who were "badly veiled", accompanied by warnings against leaving their car windows open.

Kerry: Defaming Islam is as Bad as Rape.  Western elites are stuck in permanent hysteria over supposed Islamophobia, but the sale and rape of women and girls is a lot worse than any supposed insult to Islam.  Furthermore the Islamic State is not insulting Islam.  Its religious scholars know Islam far better than a scholar of windsurfing like Kerry does.  Kerry released a press release in response to an ISIS magazine explaining the Islamic basis for their actions.  If Kerry were really capable of debating the issue, he would have responded with citations from the Koran instead of hot air.

ISIS: Sexual Enslavement of Yazidi Women Helps Muslims Avoid Sin.  The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria says that shari'a law allows the enslavement of women from Iraq's Yazidi minority because they are pagans, a religious class deemed even worse than "apostates" like Christians and Jews who may be given the convert-or-die option.  An article in the latest edition of the terrorist group's propaganda publication, Dabiq, also attempts to justify its widespread enslavement of Yazidi women by saying it was needed to prevent Muslim men from being tempted into sinful sexual conduct.

What the Arab World Produces.  [Scroll down]  As for Arab women, the situation is even worse.  Nearly half of the Arab world's women are illiterate, and sexual attacks on women have actually increased since the Arab Spring, as have forced marriages and trafficking.  And the exact number of women murdered by family members in "honor killings" is not knowable.  It is only known to be large.  In Egypt, the largest Arab country, 91 percent of women and girls are subjected to female genital mutilation, according to UNICEF.  Not to mention the number of women in the Arab world who must wear veils or even full-face and full-body coverings known as burkas.  And, of course, Saudi Arabia is infamous for not allowing women to drive a car.

Teen girls recall horrors while held in ISIS captivity.  Teenage girls who escaped the brutal clutches of ISIS terrorists have recounted a harrowing nightmare of beatings, torture, rape and degradation that included being forced to watch videos of men being beheaded.  The girls, members of the persecuted Yazidi minority from northern Iraq, say they were captured and sold or given as gifts.

Women's rights activist speaks out at Yale against Muslim 'indoctrination'.  Ayaan Hirsi Ali, known worldwide for her crusade on behalf of women's rights in Muslim regions, brought her message to Yale University Monday night [9/15/2014] and received a standing ovation at the end of her talk.  Her warm reception came despite a protest in the days before her visit by Yale's Muslim Students Association.

Islam, Postmodernism, and Poltiical Correctness.  Muslim countries are "high sex ratio" countries.  They have more males than females.  Females face of a gauntlet of survival-threatening customs, including sex selective abortion of female fetuses, the denial of health care to females, child marriage, subsequent early pregnancy, and honor killing. In Judeo-Christian countries, females tend to survive longer than males.  Facts on the ground, including sex ratios, female literacy rates, wealth distribution, publication of scholarly articles, degrees granted, holding of office and other indicators, give the lie to the cultural relativist insistence that there is no difference between misogyny in the West and in Islam.

The Muslim Rape of Christian Nuns.  Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been behaving — whether Nigeria's Boko Haram, Mesopotamia's Islamic State, Somalia's Shabaab — perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns:  defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims.

Saudi woman who called morality police liars receives lashes.  A Saudi Arabian judge has upheld a sentence of a month in prison and 50 lashes for a businesswoman convicted of insulting members of the morality police during an argument, the local al-Medina newspaper reported on Sunday [8/17/2014].

ISIS Forms Female Brigade to Enforce Sharia Law.  The Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, has formed an all-female brigade tasked with the job of enforcing Sharia law in Syria.  The brigade was formed "shortly after [ISIS] retook control of Raqqa earlier this year."  According to Syria Deeply, ISIS official Abu Ahmad said, "We have established the brigade to raise awareness of our religion among women, and to punish women who do not abide by the law."  He added, "Jihad is not a man-only duty.  Women must do their part as well."

Turkey: 'Women Shall Not Laugh in Public' says Erdogan's Deputy.  A minister in Recep Tayyip Erdogan's conservative government has outraged Turkey's secular community by claiming that honest women should not laugh in public.  Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Arınç also urged women and men to be chaste during a meeting of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) held during Turkey's celebration of Eid, the day marking the end of Islam's holy month of Ramadan.

ISIL creates all-female brigade to terrorize women into following Sharia law.  Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant have created the al-Khansaa' Brigade, an all-female unit that exists to impose on Sharia law on Iraqi and Syrian women.  "We have established the brigade to raise awareness of our religion among women, and to punish women who do not abide by the law," said Abu Ahmad, an ISIL official in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, news website Worldcrunch reported.  The armed women have reportedly detained and whipped individuals for wearing veils that are too thin, wearing hair clips under veils, walking alone and exposing too much of their face, a local activist named Abu al-Hamza told the news organization Syria Deeply.

ISIS issues genital mutilation decree.  Jihadists in Iraq have ordered that all women between the ages of 11 and 46 must undergo female genital mutilation, which could affect up to four million women and girls in the war-ravaged country, a UN official said last night [7/24/2014].  The UN's second most senior official in Iraq, Jacqueline Badcock, said, "It is a fatwa (or religious edict) from ISIS, we learnt about it this morning.  We have no precise numbers."  The Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), took over large swathes of the country last month and has begun imposing its extreme Salafist interpretation of Islam.  Ms Badcock said that if you took UN population figures as a guide, around "four million girls and women could be affected".

Christians lie and wives must have sex or go to hell, Trojan Horse pupils told.  Children were taught that all Christians are liars and attempts were made to introduce Sharia law in classrooms as part of an alleged 'Trojan Horse' takeover plot of Birmingham schools, an inquiry has found.  The inquiry commissioned by Birmingham City Council found evidence of religious extremism in 13 schools as school governors and teachers tried to promote and enforce radical Islamic values.  Schools put up posters warning children that if they didn't pray they would "go to hell", Christmas was cancelled and girls were taught that women who refused to have sex with their husbands would be "punished" by angels "from dusk to dawn".

Man who killed wife over dinner prefers death to prison food.  It always comes back to the dinner table with this guy.  The 75-year-old Pakistani immigrant convicted in Brooklyn of beating his wife to death because she served him lentils instead of goat should get the minimum sentence, his lawyer argued Wednesday [7/9/2014] — because the lack of Pakistani food behind bars will be a hardship.  "His inability to speak English and his inability to have Pakistani food will make his incarceration even more difficult than the average inmate," defense attorney Julie Clark wrote in court papers seeking the minimum 15 years to life sentence for Noor Hussain.

Sudanese mother sentenced to death for 'converting to Christianity' freed after international outcry.  In an exclusive picture obtained by MailOnline, the mother-of-two is seen holding her baby daughter Maya who was born in prison whilst she was shackled to the ground.  On her right is her husband Daniel Wani, a Christian American citizen, who beams proudly with their son Martin, 21 months, by his knee and the couple's legal team around them.

Protesters to Obama: Grant Jailed Christian Sudanese Woman U.S. Citizenship, Secure Her Release.  A coalition of Christian groups held at protest in front of the White House on Thursday [6/12/2014] to raise awareness about a Christian woman who is imprisoned in Sudan with her infant daughter and toddler son for apostasy.  "In the case of Meriam Ibriham, she needs to be released from the prison in north Sudan," Ed Lyons of the Persecution Project told CNSNews.com.  "She needs to be granted American citizenship."

US 'fully engaged' in case of Sudanese woman sentenced to die for Christian faith.  [Meriam] Ibrahim, 27, gave birth to a girl early Tuesday at a prison clinic in Omdurman, near Khartoum, one of her attorneys told FoxNews.com by phone.  Ibrahim, who is married to a Christian man with U.S. citizenship, has been sentenced to hang for apostasy and is now allowed to breast-feed her daughter, Maya, for two years before the punishment is carried out.

Obama's phone must be disconnected, and his pen out of ink.  It sure would be nice for President Pen-and-Phone to speak up in a few situations where he actually could make an immediate difference, without trampling on the Constitution.  Maybe that's why he doesn't say anything.  It's no fun unless he can disrupt the separation of powers, make a government agency bigger, or turn the situation into a slam against his political enemies.  I'd also like to see President Obama use his fabled pen and phone to do something for Meriam Ibrahim, held prisoner by the barbarians of Sudan and just forced to give birth in chains.  I'm not talking about metaphorical chains, either.  She was literally shackled to the floor in a filthy dungeon cell while her baby daughter was delivered.

Sudanese death sentence woman to be freed soon: government official.  A Sudanese woman sentenced to death for converting to Christianity is expected to be released soon, a government official said on Saturday, after Khartoum came under diplomatic pressure to halt her execution.

Sudanese barbarians: On second thought, maybe we'll hang that Christian woman after all.  I had a nasty feeling the good news about the imminent release of Christian woman Meriam Ibrahim by the Islamofascist regime in Sudan might not hold up.  Sure enough, CNN reports today that what passes for a "government" in Sudan is backtracking, and Ms. Ibrahim — the wife of a U.S. citizen, who just gave birth while shackled in a filthy dungeon cell — is still scheduled to die for refusing to renounce Christianity, once she's been given a little time to nurse her newborn daughter: [...]

Sudanese woman Meriam Ibrahim sentenced to death for apostasy 'to be freed'.  Sudan appeared to be bowing to international pressure on Saturday night to free a woman sentenced to death for apostasy.  A foreign ministry spokesman said that Meriam Ibrahim would be released and not face further charges.  But lawyers for 27-year-old Ms Ibrahim expressed scepticism that she would be freed so quickly.  "It's a statement to silence the international media," said Elshareef Ali Mohammed.  "This is what the government does.  We will not believe that she is being freed until she walks out of the prison."

Husband of Woman Stoned to Death Had Killed First Wife: Report.  Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif demanded to know on Thursday [5/29/2014] why police stood by while a pregnant woman was beaten to death by her family in front of one of the country's top courts.  Farzana Iqbal, 25, was killed by a group of attackers, including her father, on Tuesday because she had married the man she loved and prompted the anger of her family.  An investigation into the case showed that her husband had earlier killed his first wife, said a source in Sharif's administration.

Pakistan woman stoned to death by family for marrying man she loved.  A 25-year-old woman was stoned to death by her family outside one of Pakistan's top courts on Tuesday [5/26/2014] in a so-called "honor" killing for marrying the man she loved, police said.

A Real War on Women.  Why were those girls abducted in the first place?  Boko Haram wants to create a sharia-law state, which teaches that educating women is sinful and capturing women and children in the name of jihad is justified.  The majority of the abducted girls were believed to be Christians, another reason why they were targeted.  Abubakar Shekau, the leader of Boko Haram, claimed in a video released last week that the girls have converted to Islam, showing about half of them dressed in black and gray hijabs, reciting the Koran, and praying to Allah.  Now the girls face a life of forced labor or sex slavery.

Man Killed Wife For Making Vegetarian Dinner: Prosecutors.  A Pakistani immigrant beat his wife to death in their Brooklyn home after she made the mistake of cooking him lentils for dinner instead of the hearty meal of goat meat that he craved, according to court papers.  Noor Hussain, 75, was so outraged over the vegetarian fare that he pummeled his wife, Nazar Hussain, 66, with a stick until she was a "bloody mess," according to prosecutors and court papers.  "Defendant asked [his wife] to cook goat and [his wife] said she made something else," the court papers indicated as Hussain's murder trial opened on Wednesday.

But his lawyer claims that's just his culture.  A Pakistani immigrant allegedly beat his wife to death with a stick for making him the wrong dinner, a court heard.  Noor Hussein, 75, believed he had the right to discipline 66-year-old Nazar at their apartment in Brooklyn, New York, his defense said.  But prosecutors claim he murdered her because she had made the mistake of cooking him a vegetarian meal made of lentils instead of goat meat.

Islamic 'Sex Slaves Throw Wrench in Official Narrative.  Islamic law permits the possession of concubines, or sex slaves.  This has been demonstrated countless times, including through Islamic clerics quoting Islamic scriptures, and through ordinary Muslims, past and present, acting on those scriptures.  That said, Islam-sanctioned sex-slavery does not perturb the Western world simply because the powers-that-be — specifically, academia, media, and government — ignore it, and any number of other unsavory phenomena associated with Islam, out of existence.  Interesting, therefore, are the responses — comical, one might even say — when one of these everyday anecdotes actually does surface for the general public.

Pregnant Christian to be Executed for Leaving Islam After Giving Birth — State Department Stands Idly By.  On Thursday, May 15, Sudanese Christian Meriam Yahya Ibrahim, 27, was sentenced to death by hanging for the crime of apostasy.  Ibrahim, a physician who graduated from the University of Khartoum Medical School, refused to renounce her Christian faith.  The Islamist Khartoum regime claims that Ibrahim is a Muslim because her father, who abandoned the family when she was six years old, was a Muslim.  Ibrahim, however, embraced for herself the faith of her Ethiopian Orthodox Christian mother.

Update:
Islamic court says pregnant woman permitted to give birth before she is hanged.  An Islamic court in the Sudanese capital has said that a pregnant woman sentenced to hang for apostasy after she married a Christian man will be allowed to give birth before she is executed.  Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, 27, who was born to a Muslim father but brought up a Christian by her mother, was convicted on Sunday in Khartoum and given three days to recant her faith or face a possible death sentence. [...] Because her father was Muslim, she was considered by the court to be the same.

The Editor says...
Similarly, Barack Obama's father was a Muslim, therefore...

The Death Row Maternity Ward.  Last week, I wrote about Meriam Ibrahim, the pregnant Christian woman sentenced to death by Judge Abbas Mohammed al-Khalifa in Khartoum for the crime of "apostasy".  Before she dies, she'll receive a bonus 100 lashes for "adultery".  Being a merciful man, His Honor announced he would let the convicted criminal give birth to her child before he hanged her.  Today [5/27/2014], in a filthy, disease-ridden Sudanese prison Meriam was delivered of a baby girl, whom she has named Maya.

Boko Haram release chilling videos of missing Nigerian schoolgirls.  Clearly terrified and forced to cover their bodies in Muslim garb — black and grey full-length hijabs — the girls abducted by Islamic terrorists were shown yesterday [5/12/2014] for the first time in a deeply disturbing video.  Made to recite the Koran for the cameras at a secret camp in the dense forests of northern Nigeria, the unimaginable strain of their ordeal was etched into their unsmiling faces.  It made the jovial demeanour of their deranged captor all the more shocking.

The War on Former Muslim Women.  It is a tragedy and a shame that it had to take the mass kidnapping and sexual enslavement of 300 Nigerian girls by Muslim jihadists for the world to finally express its outrage over Sharia's evil deeds.  Similar stories of Christian girls being kidnapped, forcibly married and converted to Islam by their Muslim captors, have been a reality for decades.  But unfortunately, and tragically, they have been ignored by our mainstream media.  Only a few "Islamophobic" journalists have cared enough to report on such atrocities in Egypt, Syria and elsewhere — until reality exploded to such a great magnitude that it awakened the world's conscience.

Gang-Raped Indonesian Woman May Be Caned Publicly.  An Indonesian woman who was gang-raped by men accusing her of having extramarital sex may be caned publicly for violating Islamic law, an official said Wednesday [5/7/2014].

White House to send specialists to help recover abducted Nigerian schoolgirls.  In Nigeria, U.N. officials reported that a new kidnapping had occurred, with between eight and 11 girls abducted Sunday by armed militants in the northern state of Borno to prevent them from attending school.  It is unclear whether the same extremist group was involved in both abductions.  The state's police commissioner denied that any abductions had taken place.

Why Hillary Clinton's State Dept. didn't list Boko Haram as a terrorist group.  The US lists Boko Haram as a foreign terrorist organization.  But that designation occurred only last year, under John Kerry's State Department.  An earlier proposal by a congressional committee that the group be placed on the US terror list was studied but ultimately denied in 2012 by Mrs. Clinton's State Department.  The Clinton State Department did add three Boko Haram leaders to the US list of individual terrorists, including Abubakar Shekau — the leader who issued a video this week in which he claims the mass kidnapping and vows to "sell in the market" the 276 girls though to still be under his control.

More Nigerian girls abducted by suspected Boko Haram militants.  The latest kidnapping happened on Sunday night [5/4/2014] in the village of Warabe, in Borno state.  The girls taken were between the ages of 12 and 15.  On Monday, Boko Haram's leader threatened to "sell" more than 230 girls seized from their school, also in Borno, on 14 April.  The Islamist insurgency by Boko Haram has left thousands dead since 2009.

Gunmen abduct eight more girls in northeast Nigeria: police.  Suspected Boko Haram gunmen kidnapped eight girls from a village near one of the Islamists' strongholds in northeastern Nigeria overnight, police and residents said on Tuesday [5/6/2014].

Boko Haram: Kidnappers, Slave-Owners, Terrorists, Killers.  The leader of an African Islamist group recently declared he planned to sell "in the marketplace" nearly 300 young girls his group kidnapped last month in Nigeria, describing the young students now as "slaves."  The shocking statement was made in an undated video that appeared to show Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the group commonly known as Boko Haram, holding an AK-47, draped in ammunition and speaking as he's surrounded by his followers.

Why won't the Nigerian government accept our help to find the 234 stolen schoolgirls?  It's now more than three weeks since 234 schoolgirls were kidnapped in northern Nigeria.  Yet until the last few days, the reaction around the world has been that this is, to coin a phrase, a quarrel in a faraway country between people of whom we know nothing.  That's now changed.  America is offering help to find the schoolgirls snatched by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram (whose name translates as "Western education is forbidden"), and the Foreign Office is shouting from the rooftops about its outrage — and its own willingness to help the Nigerian government.

Boko Haram claims responsibility for kidnapping Nigeria schoolgirls.  The leader of Nigerian Islamist extremist group Boko Haram has said that more than 270 schoolgirls snatched from their dormitories were "slaves" whom he planned to sell in the market.  "I abducted your girls," a man claiming to be Abubakar Shekau, the group's leader, said in a video seen by the Guardian.  "I will sell them in the market, by Allah.  I will sell them off and marry them off.  There is a market for selling humans.  "Women are slaves.  I want to reassure my Muslim brothers that Allah says slaves are permitted in Islam," he added, in an apparent reference to an ancient tradition of enslaving women captured during jihad, or holy war.

'I will sell them,' Boko Haram leader says of kidnapped Nigerian girls.  Fears for the fate of more than 200 Nigerian girls turned even more nightmarish Monday when the leader of the Islamist militant group that kidnapped them announced plans to sell them.  "I abducted your girls.  I will sell them in the market, by Allah," a man claiming to be Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in a video first obtained by Agence France-Presse.

Boko Haram: backward but brutal.  Boko Haram, the name of the Islamist group that has terrorised Nigeria, roughly translates as "Western education is forbidden".  The title nicely sums up its philosophy:  aggressively anti-Western, backward-looking and fuelled by ignorance.  Among its more quirky views are that the Earth is not spherical and that Darwinian evolution is a nonsense.  But Boko Haram is far from a joke.  Since 2002, it has claimed an estimated 10,000 lives through attacks on Christians and government targets  And last month, its members abducted an estimated 276 schoolgirls under cover of darkness.  It is thought that they were kidnapped for the purpose of selling them into sexual slavery to men in Chad and Cameroon.  Some of the girls have since escaped — and now, finally, the Nigerian government seems poised to act militarily to help those still being held captive.

What You Need to Know About the Nigerian Kidnapped Girls.  About 300 teenaged girls were abducted from their school in Nigeria on April 15.  Police have said that some were able to escape but 276 remain kidnapped.  Gunmen abducted the girls from their dormitories at the Government Girls Secondary school in Chibok.  One girl told the New Yorker that militants dressed in Nigerian military uniforms came into their dorms and told the girls they were being taken to a safe space.  They were placed in trucks and on motorcycles and driven away as the militants shouted "Allahu akbar," which means God is great.

Man allegedly claims Islamic Law gives him to right to kill wife.  Police say a valley man threatened to kill his wife, telling his victim "Islamic Law" gave him the right to kill her.  Ansar Muhammad, 43, is facing several charges, including assault and imprisonment.

Aras Hussein jailed for beheading teenage girlfriend.  A man who beheaded his girlfriend before stabbing himself has been sentenced to life with a minimum term of 20 years in prison.  Aras Hussein, 21, stabbed student Reema Ramzan, 18, in her chest with a kitchen knife and began to decapitate her while she was still alive.  He then stabbed himself in the chest, took his clothes off and went outside his flat in Shirecliffe, Sheffield.  A neighbour saw him standing naked and covered in blood while holding a wad of money and a passport.

Liberals attack female fighting misogyny.  War on women alert:  One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack.  Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women's oppression under Islamic law.  She's blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims.  Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women's rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women's rights.  Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.  The latest effort was a successful campaign to pressure Brandeis University into withdrawing its offer of an honorary degree.  Her offense?  Expressing the wrong opinions.

Nigerian child bride kills man she was forced to marry, 3 of his friends.  Child marriage is common in Nigeria and especially in the mainly Muslim and impoverished north, where the numbers increase in times of drought because a bride price is paid and it means one less mouth to feed.

Iraq ready to legalise childhood marriage.  Children in Iraq could be legally married before the age of nine under sweeping legislation tabled on Tuesday [4/8/2014] that introduces new religious restrictions on women's rights.  As almost its last act before elections at the end of the month, the Iraqi parliament looks likely to pass new marital rules for its majority Shia community with a draft law criticised by human rights activists as "legalised inquality."  The legislation has been approved by the governing coalition in an effort to attract support from Shia Muslims in the April 30 vote.

Muslim Cleric Urges Homeless Women to Become Sex-Slaves.  Within the context of keeping the Syrian jihad alive, it seems there is no end to the attempts of some Islamic clerics to legitimize otherwise forbidden behavior in order to gratify the sexual urges of the jihadis and keep them fighting Syrian president Bashar Assad.  First, there was the now infamous "sex-jihad" fatwa, which holds that any Muslim woman who willingly allows her body to be used by the sexually-deprived jihadis becomes herself a jihadi, if not a "martyr," deserving of all the honor and rewards associated with those titles.

'Honor Diaries' is about the real war on women, not 'Islamophobia'.  Despite what organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations say, the film "Honor Diaries" is about the abuses that women face around the world.  In an interview with the Washington Examiner, human rights attorney Paula Kweskin, a writer and producer for the film, said it was clear CAIR had not seen the actual film and was trying to silence debate.  "I mean, one of the most engaging parts about this film is that it centers on a salon of women engaging and talking candidly," Kweskin said.  "And they don't all agree with one another, but they respect one another and they're talking about issues that are close to their hearts.

Islamophobia in action? 'Honor Diaries' screening shut down by CAIR.  CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) is at it again.  This time they have succeeded in shutting down a screening of the film, "Honor Diaries," at the University of Michigan, Dearborn last Thursday night, claiming that the film is 'Islamophobic.'  "Honor Diaries" is a recently-released documentary profiling nine Muslim women and their horrific experiences in Islamic societies living with practices such as female genital mutilation, honor violence, honor killings and forced marriage at young ages.

Iraq moves bill to legalise child marriage and marital rape, sparks fury.  A bill before Iraq's parliament that opponents say legalises child marriage and marital rape has sparked controversy ahead of elections as secular activists face off against the draft law's backers.  The bill, the Jaafari Personal Status Law, sets out rules to do with inheritance, marriage and divorce.  Supporters of the draft, named after a Shiite Muslim school of jurisprudence, say it simply regulates practices already existing in day-to-day life. [...] Critics point in particular to a clause of Article 147 in the bill which allows for girls to divorce at the age of nine, meaning they could conceivably marry even earlier, and another article which would require a wife to have sex with her husband whenever he demands.

Pakistan clerics declare ban on child marriage un-Islamic.  Pakistan's top religious body has declared the prohibition of child marriage incompatible with Islam and demanded that the government amend its laws, prompting outrage from human rights activists.  The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII), which was formed in 1962 to advise parliament on the compatibility of laws with Sharia, also ruled that a man does not need permission from his wife if he wants to marry another woman.

International Women's Day — why America's politically correct feminists dishonor human rights.  [A] law has been proposed in Afghanistan that will make it impossible for a woman whose family has beaten, tortured, or tried to kill her, to lodge a complaint of any kind.  Such complaints are seen as endangering family unity.  Orwell would understand this.  But why would intelligent and educated Western feminists remain blind to such crimes in America?

Muslim Rape Culture.  In Muslim Egypt, 99.3% of women and girls have been sexually harassed.  What is ordinary behavior in Egyptian Muslim culture is a criminal act in Australia where women are considered to be human beings.

Here's How the Muslim World Believes Women Should Dress.  A survey conducted in seven Muslim-majority countries (Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Pakistan) finds that a median of 10 percent of the respondents prefer women to wear either a niqab or burqa when in public.

My brother said I would survive suicide attack, says 10-year-old Afghan girl.  A 10-year-old girl implicated in a failed attack against Afghan border police has told police her brother wrapped an explosive suicide vest on her and told her to approach a police checkpoint[.]

56 women killed in 2013 for giving birth to girls.  Fifty-six women have been killed in Pakistan this year for giving birth to a girl rather than a boy, human rights activist IA Rehman said at a symposium here on Monday. [...] From January 2012 to September 2013, there were also 90 acid attacks on women, 72 cases of burning caused by other means, 491 cases of domestic violence, 344 cases of gang rape and 835 cases of violence, he said.  "Young girls are being raped in Pakistan and all we do is shout rather that do anything practical," he said.

Rape victim sentenced 200 lashes by Saudi court.  A yet to be publiclly identified female gang rape victim was initially found guilty and sentenced to 90 lashes for violating the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's (KSA) rigid Islamic law on segregation of the sexes.  The Kingdom's General Court determined the woman sat in an automobile with an old school chum to whom she was no blood relation, hence, she violated Islamic Sharia Law of gender segregation.

Canada (and the U.S.) Welcome Polygamy.  Polygamy is against the law in the U.S. and Canada, and that's a good thing:  the practice devalues women, reducing them to the status of commodities, and stands as an affront to their equality with men as human beings.  But now anti-polygamy laws are coming under stealthy and subtle challenge, as both governments bow before the god of multiculturalism and dare not confront the increasing number of Muslims who are practicing polygamy in both countries.

Dangerous Times: The Crisis-Monger.  Want to see a real war against women?  Wherever sharia takes over, women are systematically intimidated, brainwashed, beaten, raped, murdered, jailed in their homes, and treated with contempt.  American feminists are so utterly deluded that they can't see crimes against women all over Dar al Harb, the House of War, right in front of their unseeing eyes.  And Obama's "alter ego," Valerie Jarrett, born and raised in Iran, can't be in any doubt about the facts.

8-year-old Yemeni girl dies from injuries sustained on her wedding night: report.  An eight-year-old Yemeni girl has died of internal bleeding sustained during her wedding night after being forced to marry a man nearly five times her elder, the Daily Mail reported Monday.  Activists said the child, identified only as Rawan, died in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia.

Voting for 'victims'.  I once married a Muslim "man of color" and assumed, unthinkingly that, as an outsider himself, he might somehow identify with and make common cause with women. [...] I had also once assumed that all formerly colonized peoples and Third World impoverished countries were filled with naturally noble inhabitants who were instinctively spiritual and kind to each other.  I quickly discovered that barbarism is indigenous to such regions, and that tribal and religious wars, the most profound misogyny, cruelty, and corruption were accepted asnormal."  It was only a crime to criticize such practices.

Police: Afghan militants drag female author out of her home, shoot her dead.  The killing of Sushmita Banerjee was the latest in a string of attacks on prominent women in Afghanistan, adding to fears women's rights in a country where many are barely allowed outside the house will recede even more after U.S.-led foreign forces fully withdraw in 2014.

Author of best-seller that criticized Taliban shot by Taliban outside home.  Shar Wali, who heads the Afghan Police Criminal Investigation Department in Paktika, said in NBC on Friday that Sushmita Banerjee died at the scene and that the Taliban was responsible for her killing.  Mr. Wali said the militants stormed her house, tied up her husband and family members, then took her outside and shot her several times.

Islamist mob parades nuns in Cairo as prisoners of war.  A mob marched nuns through the battle-torn streets of Cairo 'like prisoners of war' in the latest outrage against Egypt's Christian minority.  Sister Manal, principal of a Franciscan school in suburban Cairo, watched for six hours as a mob looted the building, knocked the cross off the gate and replaced it with a black banner resembling the flag of Al Qaeda.  The classrooms were then burned to the ground and the women taken away, attracting a crowd of abusive onlookers.

Number of UK attacks involving acid and other corrosive substances soars.  Experts say they believe many of the cases involving acid are linked to Asian communities, with women attacked by their husbands and punished for refusing forced marriages, while men were attacked during disputes over dowries.  Latest NHS hospital figures record 144 assaults in 2011/12 involving corrosive substances, which can also include petrol, bleach and kerosene.  Six years earlier, 56 such episodes were noted.

The Editor says...
I suspect the increase is in direct proportion to the Muslim population.  Who else throws acid on women?

British teens in hospital after Zanzibar acid attack.  [Scroll down]  Tanzania is predominantly Muslim, and the attack happened at the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan as people were beginning to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday. [...] One of the girls had posted on her Twitter page that she had been hit by a Muslim woman in the street earlier in the trip, apparently for singing during Ramadan.

A Particularly Cruel Islamic Attack?  What does is say about a religion when, if two innocent teenage girls walking down the street are doused with acid by men on motorbikes, everyone assumes the attackers must be Muslims?  We let a great many outrages go unremarked, but this one really should be noted.  The victims are two British girls, Kirstie Trup and Katie Gee, both 18, who were spending their "gap year" between high school and university volunteering at an orphanage in Zanzibar.  Zanzibar is a mostly Muslim place, so they had been warned about the need to fit in.

Zanzibar Acid Attack: Suspect Preacher On Run.  Police are hunting a radical Muslim preacher wanted in connection with an acid attack on two British teenagers in Zanzibar.  Sheikh Issa Ponda Issa was cornered by officers near Dar es Salaam in Tanzania, but managed to escape and is now on the run.

'I'm better off dead': 11-year-old Yemeni girl escapes arranged marriage.  A video posted online by an 11-year-old Yemeni girl has gained worldwide attention after she claimed she ran away from her family to escape an arranged marriage.  Nada al-Ahdal said she was saved from the arrangement only after her uncle intervened, the Daily Mail reported.

Slavery may be illegal in the U.S., but apparently it still exists.
African Diplomat Used Slave on U.S. Soil for Years.  The African nation of Tanzania was finally held accountable for allowing a diplomat who enslaved an African woman on U.S. soil to return home.  The diplomat had reportedly been operating at high levels of government.  Alan Mzengi was found to be liable for a $1 million civil judgement for forcing a young woman to live and work against her will as a domestic servant on U.S. soil.  The judgement came in 2008 after the woman escaped from four years of slavery.  She had been kept against her will by the diplomat and forced to be a domestic servant for no pay.  The diplomat fled back to Tanzania in order to avoid consequences for forcibly enslaving the African woman.

It's the 21st century and the Muslims still engage in slavery.
Saudi princess arrested for human trafficking in California.  A Saudi princess has been arrested for human trafficking in Southern California.  42-year-old Meshael Alayban allegedly held a Kenyan domestic worker against her will and forced her to work in the princess' condominium in Irvine.

Update:
California: Saudi consulate pays $5 Million bail for Muslim Princess arrested for slavery.  In California this week, a Saudi princess was charged with human trafficking, in a case involving enslaving a maid.  Muslim royalty keeping slaves in the US.  The Saudi consulate bailed her out — of course.  Slavery under Islam is sanctioned.

'Rape Culture' vs. 'Islamophobia'.  The weathermen at Twitchy.com report that novelist Joyce Carol Oates set off a twit-storm Friday [7/5/2013] with a pair of tweets about sexual violence in Egypt:  The first coyly referred to recently deposed president Mohamed Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood:  "Something dispiriting about 'Brotherhood' political parties — wonder what it is."  The second was explicit:  "Where 99.3% of women report having been sexually harassed & rape is epidemic — Egypt — natural to inquire:  what's the predominant religion?"

Hundreds turn out to discuss women in society... but not a single member of the audience is female.
Feminism Saudi-style.  The conference, reportedly held at the University of Qassim last year, was attended by representatives from 15 nations, apparently all men.  The seats in the hall are filled with men in traditional Arab dress apart from one wearing a blue chequered shirt.

Gunmen in Pakistan bomb female students' bus then attack hospital.  Militants in Pakistan have bombed a bus carrying female students before attacking the hospital where survivors and relatives of the victims had gathered.  At least 23 people were killed in the twin attacks — including 12 women on the bus, travelling to a university in Quetta, capital of the troubled Baluchistan province.  Eleven others died when a bomb exploded in the emergency ward of the city's Bolan Medical Complex where the wounded were taken.

Girl, 16, came to police in pyjamas on her wedding night.  A 16-year-old girl turned up at a police station in her pyjamas on her wedding night claiming she had been forced by her family to marry a man she had only met once, a court was told.  The girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, told officers 'she would be taken to Pakistan and shot and everybody back home would be told it was suicide', Luton County Court heard.  She had fled her wedding reception, which was attended by up to 1,000 guests, and arrived at a police station 'in her pyjamas and in a distressed state'.

The Silent Tragedy of Child Marriage.  Last Friday, an Afghan journalist named Mustafa Kazemi posted on Facebook a harrowing story about an eight-year-old girl in the Khashrood district of Nimruz province in Afghanistan, who was sold off into marriage to a mullah in his late 50s, and who bled to death on their wedding night.  It was one of many such tragedies in a land that little notes nor long remembers such deaths.  An eight-year-old girl sold into marriage and dead after a brutal sexual assault that her body could not withstand is no more noteworthy than a pack animal that collapses under a too-heavy weight.

The Islamist War on Women.  Where are the voices of feminism reaching out to all of these Muslim women?  Is it right to ascribe such treatment to cultural norms?  Or to shield it in the name of religious tolerance?  Where is the National Organization for Women?  And Michelle Obama?  Is political correctness regarding extreme elements of Islam trumping the bond of the worldwide sisterhood?

States that Abuse Women.  [Scroll down]  Saudi Arabia denies women freedom and equality under the law in both the personal and public spheres.  Women are required to have male guardians whose permission is necessary for traveling outside the home — even for emergency hospital visits.  The state dictates their appearance with dress codes that enshroud them in anonymous black robes from head to toe.  Apart from lingerie stores, they are barred from retail jobs and most service work.  Under a code unique to Saudi Arabia, they are also banned from driving.

Boston bombers' mosque recommended men beat their wives.  The Islamic Society of Boston, the mosque attended by Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokar Tsarnaev, posted an article on its website in September 2004 that advocated for the beating of women as a last resort to force them to behave.  The Cambridge, Massachusetts-based mosque posted an English translation of Saudi cleric Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajid's 1997 work, "The Muslim Home: 40 Recommendations in Light of the Quran and Sunnah," which the mosque headlined, "40 Recommendations for the Muslim Home."

Islamic cleric decrees it OK for Syrian rebels to rape women.  An Islamic cleric has cleared the path for rebels in Syria, who are trying to oust President Bashar Assad, to rape women, so long as they're non-Sunni.

850,000 Little Girls in Iran are Married.  Marriage has to go into quotation marks because it's the same kind of marriage that any pedophile engages in.  Unfortunately Islam was founded by a pedophile, making the sexual abuse of little girls into a ritual aspect of Islam.

Boston bomber Tamerlan sat home collecting welfare benefits while plotting to bomb America.  Alleged terrorist mastermind Tamerlan Tsarnaev was receiving welfare benefits in the lead up to the deadly attacks at the Boston Marathon.  The Chechen immigrant lived off state aid while his wife, Katherine Russell Tsarnaev, worked as a home healthcare worker, sometimes clocking as many as 80 hours a week while her unemployed husband stayed at home, Massachusetts welfare officials revealed on Wednesday [4/24/2013].

Second university sounds alarm over segregation at Muslim student events.  Leicester University voiced concern after photographs emerged showing hand-written signs directing male and female students to sit in separate sections at a public talk on the existence of God organised by the university's Islamic Society.

America will Survive Obama.  [Scroll down]  Now we have a president who confuses slavery and liberty, most obviously in the case of the Islamist Spring, which is certainly not an Arab Spring, since in Syria alone nearly 100,000 Arabs have killed each other by now.  Some Spring!  To make the results clear beyond question, the Morsi regime in Egypt has just imposed a Sharia constitution that drops the provision against slavery.  The reason for that is Islamic law:  the Quran describes Mohammed raiding caravans and small towns to steal slaves, including his child bride.  The Islamist world still applies slavery to wives and daughters.

Islam is always accompanied by strife.
Britons afraid to challenge radical Islam, says former Obama adviser.  Professor Lawrence Krauss said he had been shocked when taking part at a debate hosted by an Islamic group at a leading British university to find that men and women were segregated.  The professor, a leading physicist and prominent atheist, threatened to walk out unless organisers agreed to let men and women sit together, which was eventually agreed — but was then astonished to find himself being accused of intolerance by angry members of the audience.

Morsi's Islamist Appointee Says Women are to Blame for Being Raped.  Morsi appointed [Major General Adel Abdel-Maksoud] Afifi to the Shura Council, which is something like the Egyptian Senate.  During the election, Afifi said that women and Coptic Christians should not be allowed to serve as president.  And now he's standing by Morsi and suggesting that the female protesters who were assaulted by Brotherhood rape gangs are prostitutes and want to be assaulted.

Which Country has the Highest Rape Rate in the World?  Who has the highest number of rapes in the world?  The title sadly goes to Sweden, which now sees one out of every four Swedish women being the victim of rape.  Is this the result of the rapid influx of Muslim immigrants who continue to form a larger percentage of the Swedish population?

Celebrity Saudi preacher 'raped' and tortured his five-year-old daughter to death.  A Saudi preacher who tortured his five-year-old daughter to death has been released after agreeing to pay 'blood money', activists said.  Lama al-Ghamdi died in October having suffered multiple injuries including a crushed skull, broken ribs and left arm, extensive bruising and burns.

Muslim who raped girl, 13, not jailed because his "religion doesn't teach that sex with a child is wrong".  A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood accused of paying gangs to rape women.  Egypt's embattled Muslim Brotherhood regime is paying gangs of thugs to rape women and beat men who gather in Tahrir Square to protest the power grab of President Mohamed Morsi, say activists.

Female Genital Mutilation: An Islamic Crime.  [P]erhaps it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why in Muslim Egypt, like in Indonesia, the crime of FGM is perpetrated on a massive level.  Even when the Egyptian government tried to ban FGM back in 1996, an Egyptian court overturned the ban in July 1997 because of the ferocious uprising it sparked among Islamic clerics, who fervently pointed to Islamic teachings to make sure this crime against women remained firm [sic] in place.

Saudi Arabia: Muslim cleric labels women "whores" for working with men.  Even though they were all gussied up in their hazmat suits.

War on Women: Afghan Savages Behead 15-year-Old Girl After She Turns Down Marriage Proposal.  Sandra Fluke was unavailable for comment.

Girl, 15, 'beheaded' in Afghanistan after her family turned down marriage proposal.  A teenage girl was beheaded by a relative in northern Afghanistan after she turned down his marriage proposals, according to reports.  The victim, named as Gisa, was decapitated with a knife in the Imam Sahib district of Kunduz province on Tuesday, local police said.  She is believed to be around 15-years-old.

The Worldwide 'War on Women'.  Here in America, while girls of Mexican-American descent picked out dresses for a festive quinceañera, in the Imam Sahib district of Kunduz province, 15-year-old Gisa was out gathering water by the river when she was ambushed by close male cousin Sadeq, who proceeded to saw off her head with a knife.  Gisa's father refused to allow his daughter to marry because of her tender age.  So, instead of a wedding dress and a wedding, the girl's headless body was returned to her family, wrapped in a sheet and dressed for a funeral.

Crowd of 300 sexually attacks three women in Tahrir Square.  This is [Obama's] legacy no matter who writes this history books.  He owns the deliverance of secular Muslim countries into the hands of Islamic supremacists and jihadists.  Decades of pain and suffering will be his lasting legacy.

Saudi Arabia's new "tracking" system for women.  Saudi Arabia is sending a text message to the guardian — usually a husband, father, or brother — of any woman who attempts to exit the country.  While the kingdom isn't known for its women's rights, critics feel "tagging" women like a dog that wanders astray is way out of bounds and wrong on every level.  Can't say I disagree.

Muslim Gang Rape Whitewashed in Britain.  New reports about "Asian" rape gangs appear almost every day in the British press, yet almost all media outlets and politicians are strangely reluctant to discuss the fact that most of these vile crimes are committed by Muslim immigrants and their descendants.  Paul Weston's latest essay reviews the latest news about the rape epidemic and its enablers and apologists among Britain's ruling elites.

Worst Anti-Muslim Hate Crime in America was Committed by Muslim.  When Shaima Alawadi was found beaten to death in her own dining room with a tire iron, CAIR and countless Muslim organizations rejoiced, and not just for the usual reason that Muslims rejoice when a woman is murdered, but because they had their own living dead proof that Islamophobia was the biggest problem in America since German Measles.  A note lying on the floor read, "Go back to your country, you terrorist;" which clearly meant that Shaima Alawadi's murder was a hate crime[...]

San Diego Muslim man arrested for brutal murder of his wife was US Army Islamic cultural adviser.  One lost detail following the arrest on Friday of Kassim Alhimidi in San Diego, charged with bludgeoning his wife to death with a tire iron last March, was that Alhimidi was reportedly a former Islamic cultural affairs officer for the U.S. Army (HT: Daniel Greenfield).

Parents Attack Daughter With Acid For Talking to Boy.  Pakistani parents in a remote village allegedly killed their 15-year-old daughter by pouring acid all over her face and body after they caught her talking to an unknown boy, according to local police and hospital officials.

Girl 'fated' to die in acid attack: Mother.  A Pakistani mother who killed her teenage daughter by dousing her with acid for looking at a boy has told the BBC it was the girl's destiny to die in this way.

Muhammad, the Sexual Superman.  [Scroll down]  What other religion portrays its head figure and prophet in such a manner?  What do these accounts of Muhammad — having sex with several women in a single hour, having sex with a 9-year-old — say about the founder and role model of Islam? [...] Understanding this great divide between Islam and other religions is key to understanding why Islam is at conflict with the rest of the world.  With such obsessions and priorities, is it any wonder that countless stories concerning sex-slavery, female abduction, and rape — especially for infidel non-Muslims — flood the (non-mainstream) media?

Hina Khan, Pakistani school girl, threatened by Taliban.  Hina Khan, a school girl from Pakistan's Swat district who has publicly criticized the Taliban for their ban on women's education, has claimed that her life has been threatened by the Taliban and that the Pakistani government has taken no steps to provide for her and her family's safety.

France 24 TV: Cairo reporter 'savagely attacked'.  It was the latest case of violence against women at the epicenter of Egypt's restive protests.

Afghani Beheaded for Refusing to be a Prostitute.  Events in Afghanistan continue to confirm that the plan to impose American values through the force of arms and flow of American dollars is truly a pipe dream.  In the heartland of the Taliban it is regularly taken for granted that Western notions of human rights are dismissed as an attempt to foist Christian values on a Muslim nation.  Now, the reprehensible murder of a young bride is the latest fact emphasizing the systemic disregard for the rights of women in Afghanistan.

Teacher in Egypt cut schoolgirls' hair to punish them for not wearing headscarf.  A teacher in southern Egypt punished two 12-year-old schoolgirls for not wearing the Muslim headscarf by cutting their hair, the father of one girl said Wednesday [10/17/2012], in an incident that stokes concerns over personal rights following the rise of Islamist political movements.

The terrifying world of child brides.  At age 11, Ghulam was married off to 40-year-old Jaiz in a rural Afghan village, making her only one of more than 10 million young girls who are being forced to wed men old enough to be their fathers or grandfather every year.

Husbands, beat your wives so they will mend their ways,' Egyptian cleric advises.  Egyptian cleric Abd Al-Rahman recently explained on Al-Nas television how a man is permitted to beat his wife.  "A good woman, even if beaten by her husband, puts her hand in his and says:  'I will not rest until you are pleased with me.'  This is how the Prophet Muhammad taught his women to be," Al-Rahman said in comment aired in August, according to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

It's a Girl — The Three Deadliest Words in the World.  In India, China and many other parts of the world today, girls are killed, aborted and abandoned simply because they are girls.  The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of this so-called "gendercide."  Girls who survive infancy are often subject to neglect, and many grow up to face extreme violence and even death at the hands of their own husbands or other family members.

In Sweden:
Parents held over genital mutilation.  The couple who are both in their 30s are suspected of having allowed the procedure to be carried out on their 3-year-old sometime between January and April 2012 in either Sweden or Gambia.  Female genital mutilation has been illegal in Sweden since 1982.  Since 1999 it is an offence even if the procedure is performed in a different country and carries a penalty of up to four years imprisonment.

Price of 'honour' — lawyer kills sister in court.  So-called honour killings by families that believe their daughters have disgraced them are increasingly common in Pakistan.  But the shooting last week of a woman by her brother, a lawyer, in front of dozens of witnesses in a packed courtroom in Hyderabad marks an alarming new low.

Fed to the Sharks by Political Correctness.  There is no shortage of evidence of their desire to do us harm, in the most violent way possible.  No one is safe from their evil goal — not women, or children, or the elderly, or the infirm.  Those who are deemed "infidels" are targeted for torture and grisly death.  They even murder their own family members in the name of "honor."  And yet, those on the political left seem to believe that these vile marauders just need our empathy and compassion.

Sudan woman shackled with baby, faces death by stoning, activists say.  A Sudanese woman accused of adultery has been sentenced to death by stoning and is being held shackled with her six-month-old baby in jail, activists said on Wednesday [8/1/2012], in the second such sentence in the past few months in the country.  President Omar Hassan al-Bashir said last month that Sudan would adopt a "100 per cent" Islamic constitution, prompting concerns the country would apply Islamic law more strictly after the secession of mostly non-Muslim South Sudan a year ago.

The Great Muslim Cover Up .  Over in Toronto, a Muslim cleric with the unwieldy name of Al-Hashim Kamena Atangana had a great idea.  Al-Hashim's idea was for Toronto to pass laws forcing women to wear Burkas.  "Cover up or get raped", was the implied message.  Toronto only has an estimated 5.5 percent Muslim population so the Toronto Taliban probably won't be getting their way until they have higher double digit numbers, but they can wait.  Meanwhile in Egypt where the population is 90 percent Muslim and the other 10 percent are running for their lives, a new TV channel represents a brave new frontier in Islamic feminism.

Virginity testing forced on women.  Iraqi women face court-ordered virginity tests that often show they were virgins until marriage but shame them nonetheless, doctors at an institute that carries out the tests and a lawyer told AFP.  Remaining a virgin until marriage can be an issue of life or death for women in the Middle East, where those who are seen as having dishonoured the family by having premarital sex are sometimes killed by male relatives.

The Sad Silence about Muslim Wife-Beating.  The fact is that Sharia does not recognize the universal principle of Western law that only the state has the authority to inflict violence, and specifically assigns to the male head of household quasi-state rights to inflict violence on his wife.  No civil proceeding of any kind can be sanctioned under American (or any Western) law if the explicit or implicit threat of violence intimidates one of the parties to the negotiation.  Yet violence is embedded in Muslim family law in a radically different way than any Jewish or Christian law.  The difference is so extreme and so well-documented that comparison itself is invidious[.]

Taliban accused of series of Afghanistan girls' schools poisonings.  The Afghan government accused the Taliban Wednesday [6/6/2012] of poisoning schoolgirls by bribing students and workers to sneak toxic chemicals into drinking water or spread it around school grounds, sickening scores.

Local officials deny this.

Sentenced to death for singing and dancing at wedding.  Pakistani authorities in the area said local clerics had ordered the punishment over allegations that the men and women danced and sang together in Gada village, in defiance of strict tribal customs that separate men and women at weddings.  "The local clerics issued a decree to kill all four women and two men shown in the video," district police officer Abdul Majeed Afridi said.

Afghan girls poisoned in anti-school attack.  More than 120 schoolgirls and three teachers have been poisoned in the second attack in as many months blamed on conservative radicals in the country's north, Afghan police and education officials said on Wednesday [5/23/2012].

Bias alert!
There is nothing "conservative" about poisoning little girls.  Reuters blames the attack on "conservative radicals", which is an oxymoron in itself, but they are really talking about "Muslim radicals."

Honor Killing Verdict Has Prosecutors Wanting More.  A German court last week convicted and sentenced five siblings in the kidnapping and murder of their younger sister Arzu.  Prosecutors, however, are still not satisfied.  They believe that the family's father ordered the honor killing and are hoping to find enough evidence to put him behind bars.

Islamic 'Death-Sex' in Context.  To start, consider the ultimate source of this practice:  it's neither the Muslim Brotherhood nor the Salafis; rather, as with most of Islam's perversities — from adult breastfeeding to pedophilia marriage — Islamic necrophilia is traced to the fount of Islam, its prophet Muhammad, as found in a hadith (or tradition) that exists in no less than six of Islam's classical reference texts, including Kanz al-'Umal by Mutaqi al-Hindi and Al-Hujja fi Biyan al-Mahujja, an authoritative text on Sunni Doctrine, by Abu Qassim al-Asbahani.

Book tells Muslim men how to beat and control their wives.  A local bookstore has "sold out" of a controversial marriage guide that advises Muslim men on how to beat their wives.  The 160-page book, published by Idara Impex in New Delhi, India, is written by Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, who's described in the book's foreword as a "prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning."  The store's manager, who didn't give his name, said the book had been sold out for some time, and the store's owner, whom the manager identified as Shamim Ahmad, refused to comment for the story.

'Honour killings' increase in Pakistan.  At least 943 Pakistani women and girls were murdered last year for allegedly defaming their family's honour, the country's leading human rights group said on Thursday [3/22/2012].  The statistics highlight the growing scale of violence suffered by many women in conservative Muslim Pakistan, where they are frequently treated as second-class citizens and there is no law against domestic violence.

Teenager is 'first' white victim of honour killing.  Laura Wilson, 17, was repeatedly knifed in the head by her Asian boyfriend Ashtiaq Ashgar on a secluded tow path after their relationship turned sour.  Her mother, who has never spoken publicly before, believes her daughter was murdered because she challenged the code of ethics which some ethnic communities still follow.

The Editor says...
Note the use of the euphemisms Asian and ethnic in place of the more obvious and truthful and accurate word Muslim.  As long as the news media are afraid to report current events with reasonable candor, the Muslims will escape the scrutiny they deserve.

NAACP Brings U.S. Election Law Before United Nations.  The United Nations Human Rights Council, comprised of human rights violators like Saudi Arabia, China, and Cuba, has turned its attention to American election laws.  Ironically, the council is investigating the impact of American election laws on minorities in the United States, even as some of the Council's member nations have only just recently permitted women the right to vote, and Saudi Arabia still bars women from voting completely.

UN rights council delves into US voter I.D. laws.  The United Nations Human Rights Council is investigating the issue of American election laws at its gathering on minority rights in Geneva, Switzerland.  This, despite the fact that some members of the council have only in the past several years allowed women to vote, and one member, Saudi Arabia, still bars women from the voting booth completely.

Ten Minutes on Honor Killings.  There were many important things that I did not have time to discuss.  I should have congratulated Canada for prosecuting both the actual perpetrators and the collaborators in the Shafia Honor Killing.  However, the 25 years without parole sentence for the murder of the four Muslim female victims only amounts to 6½ years for each victim.  Not good enough.

Death and dishonour.  The jury in Kingston got it right:  The evil Shafia family has been sentenced to life in prison, with no chance of parole for 25 years, for killing the girls in their family.  Mohammad Shafia, his polygamous wife Tooba Mohammad Yahya, and their demon son Hamed Mohammad Shafia, were motivated by a medieval belief that women are the personal property of men, to be owned by men, and disposed of by men.

Political Correctness and Muslims.  Mohammad Shafia and his wife, Tooba, immigrated to Canada from Afghanistan in 2007.  Being Muslims, they believe in Sharia law, which in some cases allows so-called "honor killings" — that is, if a family member deviates from strict Muslim teachings, other family members can execute them.  Of course, that's insane.  But under the Taliban in Afghanistan and in some other parts of the world, "honor killings" are allowed.

Stop Islamic Crimes Against Women.  Muslims are obligated to obey, imitate and disseminate to children during their most impressionable formative years, the violent teachings and biography of Mohammad, collectively called the Sunnah, comprising the life and sayings of Mohammad in the Sira and Hadith, along with the Q'uran, a frankensteinish plagiarism of the most brutal laws and barbaric practices of the 7th century.

The four bodies were found in June 2009 in a car submerged in a canal in Kingston, Ontario, where the family had stopped for the night on their way home from Niagara Falls.  Prosecutors said the daughters were killed because they dishonored the family by defying rules on dress, dating, socialising and going online.

A New Sect of Honor Killing Enthusiasts.  It is by now a familiar scenario for German police.  The lifeless body of a teenaged Middle Eastern girl, missing since November.  Discovered in a hidden spot with signs of a violent death.  A suspected honor murder at the hand's of the family, some of whose members were already in custody.  But this time the script is slightly different.  While most honor murders in Germany originate within the country's four million strong Muslim community, the latest victim, Arzu O. from Remminghausen (German law does not allow for the release of the last name), 18, whose corpse was found last week, belonged to a little known Middle Eastern religious sect called Yazidism.  And it is this sect's adherents who are becoming better known recently for their part in the nightmarish phenomenon of honor killings in Germany.

Sharia Law Already Devouring UK.  In 2008, while arguing for the need to formally introduce Sharia law into the law of the United Kingdom, the Archbishop of Canterbury claimed Sharia law was "inevitable" in the UK. ...

To Hide an Honor Killing.  This is justice in America in 2011:  a police department cowers in fear of violence from Muslims if it tells the truth about an Islamic honor killing.  Ask yourself if all the "Islamophobia" mongers care even the slightest bit about justice for Fatimah Abdallah.

Honour killings: Man guns down six daughters.  A man gunned down six of his daughters on suspicion that two of them were in relationships with boys in the neighbourhood.  On Tuesday morning [7/26/2011], Arif Mubashir called his teenage daughters to his room and shot them while the rest of the family, including their mother, watched.  His wife Musarrat called the police after the incident.

Muslim girl, 19, 'stoned to death after taking part in beauty contest'.  A teenage Muslim girl was stoned to death under 'Sharia law' after taking part in a beauty contest in Ukraine.  Katya Koren, 19, was found dead in a village in the Crimea region near her home.  Friends said she liked wearing fashionable clothes and had come seventh in a beauty contest.

Why Muslim cultures lag behind.  The future, no matter what form it may take, is almost certainly going to involve more technology, not less.  How well equipped is a society for this future if half of its members are only (at best) grudgingly given their rights?  In many Islamic countries, women are often illiterate and have no rights in essential critical life decisions, such as those involving child-rearing, marriage or education.  And why should they?  Various Quranic verses, age-old Islamic traditions, and core Islamic teachings render women as nothing more than chattel and the property of their male relatives — never the equal of men.

Saudi Woman Reportedly Jailed for Another 10 Days.  The Saudi woman at the center of a planned protest next month against the conservative kingdom's ban on female drivers will reportedly remain behind bars for another 10 days while authorities decide her fate.

Islamic "Family Honor" — Selling Daughters into Sex-Slavery for Sheep.  If this savagery is "un-Islamic," where are the worldwide condemnations from Muslim muftis, clerics and imams?

Islam, Zafar and the 4:34 Dance:  [Scroll down]  What is hilarious about this is that Mr. Zafar is so thoroughly indoctrinated into the Islamic principle that women are to be cared for by their masters that he cannot see the condescension of his remarks.  His argument could be a passage out of an SPCA manual for the treatment of dogs.  Nor does it "strike" Mr. Zafar that beating one's wife in the event of adultery or stealing might seem inappropriate.  Women are to be treated like beloved camels (I would say dogs, but dogs are an anathema to Muslims) and lacking the capability to reason must be beaten when they misbehave.

Forced Marriages in Our Own Backyard.  On February 22, 2011, Jessie Bender, a 13-year-old southern California girl, ran away from home. ... Jessie was terrified that her American-born mother, Melissa, a convert to Islam, and her mother's Pakistani boyfriend and acting stepfather Mohammed "Mo" Khan, had decided to send her to Pakistan to be married against her will.  Had Jessie gone, her mother and "Mo" would have received $3000.00.

Angry Muslims Kill 9 People and Torch Girls School Over FL Koran Abuse.  Nine people were killed and a girls school was torched today when Muslim radicals protested in Kandahar.  They said they were angry over the Koran burning in Florida...  So they torched a girls school?

Saudis don't want mothers' names mentioned.  Saudi men say they are reluctant to give their mother's names to male acquaintances, arguing that their traditions and culture are all about keeping women out of men's minds.  Some say that if a man knew his friend's mother's name, it is seen as shameful.

'Jihad Cosmo' combines beauty tips with suicide bombing advice.  Al-Qaeda has launched a women's magazine that mixes beauty and fashion tips with advice on suicide bombings.  Dubbed 'Jihad Cosmo', the glossy magazine's front cover features the barrel of a sub-machine gun next to a picture a woman in a veil.

New Al-Quaeda magazine offers beauty tips mixed with bombing advice.  Al-Qaeda has launched a women's magazine Al Shamikha (meaning the majestic woman), which mixes tips on skin care with articles on 'marrying a mujahedeen' and carrying out suicide attacks.

Cosmopolistan.  The magazine is delivered to your house shrink-wrapped, just like the women.

Teenager battered for refusing arranged marriage.  A brave teenager has spoken for the first time of the harrowing ordeal of being beaten up in an arranged marriage after her father tried to sell her for £10,000.  The 15-year-old girl was tricked into flying to Pakistan then forced to marry a 31-year-old man so he could get a British passport.

Four men slashed teacher's face 'for teaching other religions to Muslim girls'.  Four men launched a horrific attack on a teacher in which they slashed his face and left him with a fractured skull because they did not approve of him teaching religion to Muslim girls.

Sharia: Coming Soon, To A Venue Near You.  This is the kind of appalling news story that we associate with places where Islam holds sway:  ["]Four men launched a horrific attack on a teacher in which they slashed his face and left him with a fractured skull because they did not approve of him teaching religion to Muslim girls.["]  Sounds like the kind of thing that happens in Pakistan, doesn't it?  Or Iran, possibly.  Only the teacher's name is Gary Smith, and he taught at the Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, east London.

Honor Killing in America.  The trials of two "honor killers" are underway in America this week:  one in Buffalo, New York, and the other in Arizona.  In Buffalo, the moderate Muslim beheader and bridge-builder to the West, Muzzammil Hassan, was granted the right Monday to act as his own attorney.  That should make for some interesting trial transcripts.

Islam:  A Religion Custom Made For Men.  Muslims, by belief and practice, are the most blatant violators of human rights.  We hardly need to detail here Muslims' systemic cruel treatment of the unbelievers, women of all persuasions, and any and all minorities across the board.  To Muslims, human rights have a different meaning, and its protective provisions are reserved strictly for Muslims — primarily for Muslim men.

Harry Potter Actress Beaten and Branded a Prostitute by Her Family After Dating a Non-Muslim.  The only thing notable about this story is that it's being reported.  And the only reason it's being reported is because Ms. Azad is an actress in one of the most popular franchises in movie history.  The facts are simple as they are horrific.  Afshan Azad has been secretly dating a non-Muslim.  Her father and brother found out, branded her a "slag," beat her, and threatened to murder her.  She made her escape by climbing out of her bedroom window.

The Obama Administration Fights For Sharia Law.  Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to sue a suburban Chicago school district for denying a Muslim middle school female teacher three weeks of unpaid leave to abandon her students and make a pilgrimage to Mecca.  The teacher wanted to perform the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia which every adult Muslim is supposed to make at least once in a lifetime if he or she is able to do so.  Ironically, the Obama administration is suing over a practice that discriminates against women.

Want Human Rights? Leave the United Nations.  Good news, everybody.  Saudi Arabia now has a seat on the women's board at the United Nations.  That's right, a regime where it's illegal for women to drive or leave the house without being accompanied by a male guardian, where girls were pushed into a burning building because they were trying to flee without covering their 'obscene' female faces... will be a key player in the international effort to empower women.

Why Can't We Criticize What's Wrong with Islam?  What's your opinion of polygamy?  Many consider the practice immoral and it's illegal in this country and most of the developed world.  It's probably not just coincidence that few, if any, polygamous countries are liberal democratic societies in which women enjoy equal rights.

Rape 'impossible' in marriage, says Muslim cleric.  A senior Muslim cleric who runs the country's largest network of sharia courts has sparked controversy by claiming that there is no such thing as rape within marriage.  Sheikh Maulana Abu Sayeed, president of the Islamic Sharia Council in Britain, said that men who rape their wives should not be prosecuted because "sex is part of marriage".  And he claimed that many married women who alleged rape were lying.

Teen 'electrocuted' by family.  Relatives of a teenage Pakistani girl have apparently electrocuted her for falling in love with a man they did not approve of, police said on Sunday.  Elders and the family of Saima Bibi, 17, decided after a meeting of a village council, or panchayat, that her punishment for shaming the family should be death, police said.

Brothers arrested over string of recent 'honor killings' in Lod.  Police suspect the two were hired hit men in a string of so-called 'honor killings,' offering their services to locals who wanted to attack their family members.

Sudan islamic whipping video stirs outcry.  Many people have responded with anger and disgust to the video about corporal punishment in Sudan published by Radio Netherlands Worldwide.  The YouTube film clip shows a young woman being whipped in public by two police officers in Khartoum.

Political Correctness:  Morality's Poison Pill.  [Scroll down]  How many "progressives" know the fate of Saudi women, that they're prohibited from voting, speaking out, or even walking alone, and that violators are flogged?  Where's Gloria Steinem?  Where are the feminists who rail against Mama Grizzlies?  How many liberals, because it makes them uncomfortable, aid the stoning of "whores," honor-killings, and clitoral mutilation, bringing these realities closer to their reality?

Obama's Islamic America.  In this year's [Ramadan] greeting, Mr. Obama said the rituals of Ramadan "remind us of the principles that we hold in common and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings. ... That Islam has had a major role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings may come as a surprise to Muslim women.  Young Afghan girls who are having acid thrown in their faces on the way to school might want to offer their perspectives.

Group A and Group B.  Suppose we have two groups.  Group A believes that women are human beings, just like men are, and that they should be equal partners in their society.  Group B believes that women were created by the devil to tempt men, that they have no human rights, and that they must be used to have as many children as possible.

'Honour killing' parents dramatically re-arrested.  The parents of a suspected honour killing victim were yesterday dramatically arrested on suspicion of her murder after new allegations by the dead girl's younger sister.  Shafilea Ahmed, 17, disappeared more than seven years ago after claiming her parents were trying to make her take part in an arranged marriage against her will.

Terrorizing Muslim Women.  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.  Muslim women have no choice but to abide by Sharia, since rejecting it is grounds for the charge of apostasy, punishable by death.  Having been exposed to Sharia for centuries, Muslim women have learned convoluted coping mechanisms to avoid Sharia's wrath.

Obama Apologizes for Stupid Americans' Opposition to the Ground Zero Mosque.  For you liberals who somehow got forwarded this column and still don't know what Sharia law is, allow me to enlighten you.  It is the literal interpretation of Islam that leads to the widespread abuse and enslavement of women.  It's also called the reality of "that woman in Iran who's waiting to see if she's going to get stoned to death for adultery" rules.  Who knows if she really committed adultery?  In Islamic societies all a man has to do to give his wife the proverbial dirt nap, is simply claim she did.  Under Sharia law, men are the judge, jury and executioners of women, and Obama apparently thinks Americans are too stupid to know this.

Banaz Mahmod 'honour' killing cousins jailed for life.  Two cousins who murdered a relative because her family disapproved of her boyfriend have been jailed for life.  Banaz Mahmod, 20, an Iraqi Kurd from Mitcham, south London, was strangled in January 2006 and her body buried in a suitcase in Handsworth, Birmingham.  Mohammed Saleh Ali and Omar Hussain, both 28, received minimum jail terms of 22 and 21 years respectively.

Iran 'stoning woman' to get 99 lashes.  Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, has also been sentenced to 99 lashes for a photo published of her without a headscarf, according to her son.

The Editor says...
She gets 99 lashes and then she gets stoned, too?  It's like an Islamic balloon payment.

Advocates of Anti-Shariah Measures Alarmed by Judge's Ruling.  A New Jersey family court judge's decision not to grant a restraining order to a woman who was sexually abused by her Moroccan husband and forced repeatedly to have sex with him is sounding the alarm for advocates of laws designed to ban Shariah in America.

Sex and State Power.  Statist regimes, of course, cannot tolerate self-ownership, which is the natural enemy of government control over the individual.  The easiest example one can find of a statist regime using sexuality to deny individuality and dominate its citizens is, of course, Islam.  A wise friend of mine once opined that Islam's entire quarrel with the West rests on its fear that Western values will undermine Islam's control over its women and, with that, its control over the men who benefit from a system that subjugates one half of the population to the control of the other half.  There's a great deal of truth in that observation.

Understanding Muslims' Mindset.  The Muslim's mind is imprinted with authoritarianism which starts with the supreme authority, Allah, through his one and only prophet, Muhammad, his Caliphs or Imams, and the high-ranking religious divines all the way down to the village clergy.  This authoritarian mentality encompasses all aspects of life for the Muslim:  the king and his dominion as the viceroy of God, the Amir and his despotic ways, the Khan and his unchallenged rule over the tribe, the village headsman and his extensive power, and finally the father and his iron grip at home over the women and children.  All these authority figures are male.

"Soft" Censorship:  Honor Killings That You Won't Read About.  The mainstream media rarely covers them.  More often, local media does, but even local media does so walking on eggshells, careful to quote from at least one apologist and one know-nothing.  Usually, the (hardcopy) mainstream media covers such events weeks later, only briefly, or as a way to "spin" any possible prejudice against the perpetrators involved.  Sometimes they are mentioned, but only in passing.  Rarely do follow-ups appear.  Usually, a wire service piece is used, and no original reporting is done.  Sometimes, the newspaper's blog might refer to a piece which first appeared in another newspaper which, in turn, has mentioned the subject only in passing.  I am talking about how rarely the American mainstream media covers honor killings committed in North America.

This Is Rare Courage.  [Scroll down]  When it comes to the brutal slayings of young Muslim women by their fathers, brothers, or husbands, The [New York] Times gets squeamish.  As Ms. Hirsi Ali relates, this misplaced sensitivity arises from the cult of multiculturalism, which would rather tolerate egregious crimes against women than offend Third World sensibilities.

Mutilated by the Taliban.  With her clear skin and dark, flowing hair, 18-year-old Aisha would ordinarily have stood out from a crowd because of her beauty.  But now, tragically, the young Afghan woman is eye-catching for a horrifically different reason.  Aisha is a victim of Taliban brutality, her nose and ears barbarically hacked off by her own husband in a warped punishment for attempting to flee her cruel in-laws.

Honor Killings on the Rise.  Afshan Azad, the lovely and graceful actress who appears in four of the Harry Potter movies, has, in real life, been threatened with death and allegedly attacked by her father and brother.  Her sin?  She is a British Muslim of Bangladeshi origin who stands accused of dating a Hindu man.  Yes, this alone is a capital crime in Islam.

Harry Potter and Sharia law.  On July 2, CNN reported, "The father and brother of a Harry Potter actress will appear in court later this month in Manchester, England, on charges of threatening to kill the young star."  The family is Muslim, and the suspected motives are clear — Afshan Azad, who played Harry's classmate Padma Patil in the popular movies — was dating a Hindu.  Popular publications including Entertainment Weekly, People and US Weekly are all covering this disturbing but not unprecedented case, bringing a horrifying fact of life in Europe and across the world to the attention of people who don't immerse themselves in news and politics.

Deoband fatwa:  It's illegal for women to work, support family.  Darul Uloom Deoband, the self-appointed guardian for Indian Muslims, in a Talibanesque fatwa that reeked of tribal patriarchy, has decreed that it is "haram" and illegal according to the Sharia for a family to accept a woman's earnings.

Are Honor Killings Domestic Terrorism?  If a true and "peaceful" Islam -- a pro-woman Islam -- has been hijacked by maniacs, then true and peaceful Muslims must stand up to them.  If one's interpretation of faith can encourage a man to drive a car bomb into Times Square, it can also give good people the faith and courage to stand up and fight the extremists in their midst.  Faith can empower people to combat radical evil in a way that nothing else can.

Worldwide Trends in Honor Killings.  To combat the epidemic of honor killings requires understanding what makes these murders unique.  They differ from plain and psychopathic homicides, serial killings, crimes of passion, revenge killings, and domestic violence.  Their motivation is different and based on codes of morality and behavior that typify some cultures, often reinforced by fundamentalist religious dictates.  In 2000, the United Nations estimated that there are 5,000 honor killings every year.  That number might be reasonable for Pakistan alone, but worldwide the numbers are much greater.

Are Honor Killings Simply Domestic Violence?  When a husband murders a wife or daughter in the United States and Canada, too often law enforcement chalks the matter up to domestic violence.  Murder is murder; religion is irrelevant.  Honor killings are, however, distinct from wife battering and child abuse. ... Families that kill for honor will threaten girls and women if they refuse to cover their hair, their faces, or their bodies or act as their family's domestic servant; wear makeup or Western clothing; choose friends from another religion; date; seek to obtain an advanced education; refuse an arranged marriage; seek a divorce from a violent husband; marry against their parents' wishes; or behave in ways that are considered too independent, which might mean anything from driving a car to spending time or living away from home or family.

Is there any honour in killing for 'honour'?  The growing incidents of honour killing in different states, and now in the national capital, have proven that caste and its brutal ramifications are still prevalent in India.  Many of us are plainly baffled by the incidents, often arguing that the phenomenon is at odds with the new and resurgent India that we hope and dream about.  But is it actually for the sake of family honour?

Multiculturalism Trumps Feminism.  One reason why readers think we rightwing madmen are just making this stuff up is because of the shameful silence (and worse) of western feminists, who implicitly accept a two-tier sisterhood, in which some women get to lead the lives they choose while others, in the interests of "cultural sensitivity", get a literally rawer deal that begins with FGM and, if they're really unlucky, ends with "honor killing".

Feminism's failure to defend Muslim women.  [Scroll down]  Lubna Hussain was not jailed for wearing pants.  She was convicted for being an outspoken journalist, who criticized undemocratic laws in Sudan.  She was an easy target because she was a woman.  If the authoritarian Sudanese government was incapable of debating her intellectually, they resorted to attacking her person — her sex, and justifying it with high-minded notions of religion and morality.

The Burqa:  Ultimate Feminist Choice?  Most Muslim girls and women are not given a choice about wearing the chador, burqa, abaya, niqab, jilbab, or hijab (headscarf), and those who resist are beaten, threatened with death, arrested, caned or lashed, jailed, or honor murdered by their own families.  Is [Naomi] Wolfe thoroughly unfamiliar with the news coming out of Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan on these very subjects?  Has she forgotten the tragic, fiery deaths of those schoolgirls in Saudi Arabia who, in trying to flee their burning schoolhouse, were improperly veiled and who were beaten back by the all-powerful Saudi Morality Police?

Iranian police issue 'badly veiled' warnings to 62,000 women.  Iranian police have issued warnings to 62,000 women who were "badly veiled" in the Shiite holy province of Qom as part of a crackdown on dress and behaviour.

Drugged and dressed to kill.  Before sending her off with a suicide bomb strapped to her waist, Rania al-Anbaki's husband made a wish.  "You'll be a martyr and we'll meet in heaven.  I hope you'll choose me," she recalls him saying.  Interviewed in an Iraqi police station two years later, Anbaki said she did indeed meet her husband again — but in prison rather than paradise.

Taliban execute pregnant woman.  The Taliban publicly flogged and then executed a pregnant Afghan widow by emptying three shots into her head for alleged adultery, police said on Monday [8/9/2010].  Bibi Sanubar, 35, was kept in captivity for three days before she was shot dead in a public trial on Sunday by a local Taliban commander in the Qadis district of the rural western province Badghis.

Honor, and Shame.  When you look at all the formulaic sludge that wins the Pulitzer Prize for Most Unread Multipart Series, it is striking that not one of the major newspapers has done an investigative series on the proliferation of "honor killings", not in Yemen or Waziristan but in the heart of the western world.  Instead, as Phyllis Chesler writes:  ["]The mainstream media rarely covers them.  More often, local media does, but even local media does so walking-on-eggshells, careful to quote from at least one apologist and one know-nothing.["]

'I killed my daughter... with my hands'.  For years, Muhammad Parvez had been in absolute control of his family:  he set the rules, he made the decisions and he told his eight children, including the adult ones, exactly how to live their lives.  But Aqsa Parvez, 16, the youngest in the family, dared to challenge her father's rule.

Couple die in 'honour killing'.  New Delhi police said on Tuesday they had arrested the father and uncle of a woman found stabbed, gagged and electrocuted along with her boyfriend in an apparent gruesome case of "honour killing".  Asha Saini, 19, was found dead on Tuesday in northwest Delhi in a low-income neighbourhood, along with her 19-year-old boyfriend Yogesh Kumar, whom she wanted to marry despite objections from her family, according to reports.

Suntanned women to be arrested under Islamic dress code.  Iran has warned suntanned women and girls who looked like "walking mannequins" will be arrested as part of a new drive to enforce the Islamic dress code.

The item above was also posted under The Religion of the Easily Offended.

Women are the Losers When We Concede to the Muslim Hardliners.  Under the guise of promoting tolerance, Ministers are tearing apart the legal fabric that was once part of the bedrock of our civilised society.  In a shameful move, Jack Straw's Ministry of Justice has announced that the Muslim sharia code, notorious for its oppression of women, is to be endorsed by the British judicial system for the first time.

Women and Islam:  What we call modernization is a far future, I would guess.  Islam, the word, means "submission," submission to God.  But in most of the Muslim world, males have made the faith revolve around the submission of women to men.  That is the clash of cultures.

Where feminists get it right:  In Saudi Arabia, and across the Middle East, men can't handle seeing a little leg — or even an ankle — so rather than put a blindfold on the men, they throw a tarp over the women.  Indeed, throughout vast swaths of the Muslim world, men can't compute dealing with women as equals, so they lock up the women.

Anguish Across the Globe as Obama Rolls Back American Influence.  Somewhere in Iran, there is a young girl.  She has been placed in a dirty cell on charges of treason to the government.  She is frightened and alone; her family does not know where she is.  She knows that the next morning, she will be executed.  But she does not fear her execution as much as she fears the night to come.  She is a virgin; she knows that under Iranian law, she cannot be executed until she is deflowered.  And she knows that the Iranian Basji militia are determined that she be killed, which means that this night, she will be forcibly married.  Then she will be raped, in order to make her eligible for the death penalty.

Bodies believed to be 'honor killing' victims.  Four people found dead in a southeastern Afghan compound appear to be victims of an honor killing, a senior U.S. military official said on Friday.

Family massacre in Chicago a Muslim "honor killing".  It was a scene that left one of the most hardened Chicago detectives I know shaken.  He described the murder scene to me last night as one of the worst he has seen in his career, and he has seen some of the worst.

AP Silent on Motive of Killer Who 'Needed to Take His Family Back to Allah'.  Why is the legacy media so reluctant to note the possibility of a radical Muslim faith leading to violence?  On numerous occasions, the mainstream press has refused to note even a potential connection.  The latest such example concerns a recent quadruple homicide in Chicago.

Police tackle more 'honour' cases.  Police are tackling more suspicious incidents motivated by so-called "honour" than ever before, according to new figures released today [12/7/2009].  The Metropolitan Police recorded 256 incidents, of which 132 were criminal offences, in the year 2008-9.

'Honour killing':  father beat daughter in face with club.  A 50-year-old Turkish man was jailed for life in Germany on Tuesday over the brutal "honour killing" of his 20-year-old daughter, a murder carried out together with the victim's twin brother.  Gulsum Semin's brother was sentenced to nine-and-a-half years behind bars, while a 32-year-old Russian accomplice was given seven-and-a-half years by the court in Kleve, western Germany, a spokeswoman said.

The case of Tulay Goren:
"Honor" Horror In England.  [Scroll down]  Police believed Tulay was drugged, tortured and killed the following day.  But first he had Tulay's eight-year-old brother kiss his sister goodbye for the last time.  The 15-year-old's body has never been found.  First buried in the family garden, it was later dug up and removed to an unknown site.  It was Tulay's grieving mother, finally finding the courage to tell the truth ten years after her daughter's 1999 disappearance, who delivered this devastating testimony during her husband's ten-week trial in London.

Tell us where she's buried, honour killing sister pleads.  The sister of a teenage girl who was murdered by her father to protect his family's "honour" pleaded with him to reveal the whereabouts of her body after he was jailed for life yesterday [12/17/2009].  Nuray Guler urged Mehmet Goren to "end the nightmares" and allow the remains of Tulay Goren, who was 15 when she disappeared a decade ago, to be given a decent burial.

Petrol attack on actress in Muslim-themed play.  An actress was doused with petrol in Paris in an attack thought to be related to her role in a feminist play she wrote about Algerian women.  The 45-year-old, who goes by the name of Rayhana, said two men approached her while she was walking to the theatre on Tuesday [1/12/2010], grabbed her from behind, slapped her face and poured petrol on her.  "I could smell the petrol.  A flame brushed my hat and then I ran," she said.

Girl buried alive over boys.  A girl was buried alive by relatives in southeast Turkey in a gruesome honour killing just because she reportedly befriended boys, the Anatolia news agency reported on Thursday [2/4/2010].

Naomi Wolf, Will You Denounce the Honor Murder of Medine Memi?  In Turkey just recently, a father and grandfather repeatedly beat Medine Memi, a sixteen-year-old girl, for the crime of talking (allegedly) to boys.  The police weren't interested.  The beatings were eventually deemed insufficient punishment for Medine for the temerity of having her own human agency, so the father and grandfather killed her by burying her while she was "alive and fully conscious."

Rape victim receives 101 lashes for becoming pregnant.  A 16-year-old girl who was raped in Bangladesh has been given 101 lashes for conceiving during the assault.  The girl's father was also fined and warned the family would be branded outcasts from their village if he did not pay.

Europe Cracks Down on Honor Killings.  A decade ago in London, a father terrorized then plotted to honor-murder his 15-year-old daughter.  After attacking her twice, the girl simply... disappeared.  Nevertheless, due to a British police decision to revisit and reclassify old cases, the father has just now been convicted of her honor murder.

'Honour' killing dad jailed.  A Jordanian court sentenced a man to 15 years' hard labour on Tuesday after convicting him of killing his daughter for allegedly having sex with her husband before their marriage in 2007.  "The man, in his sixties, knew that his daughter, 25, was involved in an affair with a man, and decided to allow her to marry him," a judicial official told AFP.  "But after the wedding he shot her several times.  He made sure she was dead, before handing himself in to police and confessing to the crime."  The official gave no further details.

Hamas bans women from motorcycles.  The Hamas government has banned women from riding motorcycles in the Gaza Strip, saying the move was in keeping with "Arab traditions."

Hamas to expel Gaza schoolgirls not wearing Muslim dress.  Female students in the Gaza Strip will be required to wear head coverings and full-length robes beginning this school year, the Hamas rules of the Gaza Strip announced on Monday [8/24/2009].  According to the new regulations, any female student that does not attend class in the proper attire will be sent home.

Monitors:  Taliban cut off fingers of Afghan voters.  Making good on a threat of election day violence, the Taliban sliced off the index fingers of at least two people in Kandahar province, according to a vote monitoring group.  After they cast their ballots, the fingers of Afghan voters are stained with ink to prevent them from voting multiple times.  The fingers of the two women in Kandahar, a stronghold of the Taliban, were cut off because they voted, said Nader Naderi of the Free and Fair Election Foundation.

A Long Island Honor Killing?  On Friday, August 7, 2009, Mohamed Shojaeifard, a 49-year-old Iranian scientist, estranged from his 40-year-old Bangladeshi physician wife, Haleh Mohseni for more than a year, shot her in the abdomen.  Shojaeifard did not stop there.  He also shot and killed Mohseni's 65-year-old mother, Batool Biraman -- and his own 17 year-old daughter, Mandana, who had just graduated from Roslyn High School and was planning to attend SUNY at New Paltz. ... Not a single media account has mentioned this crime as potentially related in any way to culture, ethnicity, religion, immigration, or assimilation.

The Straight Poop On Radical Islam.  [Scroll down]  For instance, recently I read about a stomach-turning incident that took place in Phoenix, Arizona.  It seems that four boys between the ages of nine and 14 lured an eight-year-old girl into a shed and took turns raping her.  While that was pretty d--- loathsome, what was even more disgusting is what took place afterward.  In the little girl's presence, her father, a Muslim refugee from Liberia, told the police, "Take her.  I don't want her."  It seems that in what passes for their culture, the child had brought shame on the family.

Honoring the Victims of Honor Killing.  Remember Aqsa Parvez?  She was brutally murdered by her father and brother in December 2007 for refusing to wear the Islamic headscarf.  But that was only the beginning:  the abuse of this girl continued.  She was buried in an unmarked grave.  Her family refused to acknowledge her life, as she had "dishonored" them.  In defiance of her devout father and brother, she had refused to live under the suffocating dictates of Islamic law.

Whipped for wearing a 'deceptive' bra.  A hardline Islamist group in Somalia has begun publicly whipping women for wearing bras that they claim violate Islam as they are 'deceptive'.  The insurgent group Al Shabaab has sent gunmen into the streets of Mogadishu to round up any women who appear to have a firm bust, residents claimed yesterday [10/15/2009].

Somali fundamentalists whip bra-wearing women for being a 'deception to men'.  Fundamentalists from the Al-Shabaab group, which has seized half of Mogadishu, have attacked women who wear bras or who fail to don headscarves, reports said. ... Broadcaster CNN yesterday [10/31/2009] revealed that hooded gunmen from Al-Shabaab had last week seized 50 women who were found unveiled at a Mogadishu market.  One of them told the station:  "Just today, Al-Shabaab dispatched men with whips to the streets around Bakara market and they are flogging any woman who is found not wearing socks (to cover their feet]."

Saudi female journalist gets lashes for sex show.  A Saudi court on Saturday sentenced a female journalist to 60 lashes after she had been charged with involvement in a TV show in which a Saudi man publicly talked about sex.

Father accused of murdering his 15-year-old daughter in 'honour killing'.  A schoolgirl murdered by her father in an 'honour killing' was told to kiss her brother goodbye the day she went missing, a court has heard.  Mehmet Goren, 45, told his daughter Tulay, 15, to let her brother embrace her one last time in an emotional farewell, it is alleged.

The Religion of Peace strikes again.
Girls' school blown up.  Islamist militants blew up a girls school in Pakistan's lawless Khyber tribal district on Sunday [11/01/2009], destroying the building and wounding four people in neighbouring homes, officials said.

And again.
Taliban blow up Pakistan girls school:  official.  Taliban militants blew up a girls' school in Pakistan's Khyber district Monday [12/21/2009], officials said, as two soldiers and seven insurgents were killed in clashes in the northwest tribal belt.  The pre-dawn school attack took place in Saddokhel town in northwest Khyber tribal district, where militants detonated explosives planted around the building, destroying all five school rooms but causing no injuries.

Honour killing theory as mother-of-two found dumped in the street with her hand chopped off.  A mother was found dying in a street with serious head wounds and her right hand cut off as she went to pick up her children after work.  Geeta Aulakh, who has two young sons, died four hours later in hospital from her horrific injuries.  Police later arrested her estranged husband, 31-year-old Harpreet Aulakh, along with five other men.




The case of Noor Faleh Almaleki

Iraqi man runs down daughter for becoming too 'westernized'.  Peoria police are searching for a man they say ran down his 20-year-old daughter in a parking lot for becoming "too 'westernized' and ... not living according to their traditional Iraq values."  Noor Faleh Almaleki of Surprise was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, police said.

Another Honor Killing?  Police in Peoria, Arizona, just outside Glendale, are searching for a suspect in the attempted murder of his daughter.  They allege Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 48, mowed down Noor Faleh Almaleki in a Jeep Grand Cherokee because the 20-year-old is too "westernized."  He also struck another innocent victim, police say.

Muslim Father Arrested for Running Over 'Westernized' Daughter.  A 10-day manhunt ended when police arrested an Iraqi immigrant accused of running over his 20-year-old daughter to punish her for becoming "too Westernized" and rebuffing the conservative ways he valued.

Honor Killings All Over America — Why Are the Islamists Suddenly Silent?  Last week, the Iraqi father who drove a two ton jeep over his daughter in Arizona for being "too westernized" high-tailed it out of town, drove down to Mexico where he abandoned his vehicle and caught a flight to London.  UK Port of Entry authorities denied him entry, contacted US authorities and placed him back on a plane to the US.  Almaleki was arrested when his plane landed in Atlanta, then returned to Arizona where he now sits in jail.

Daughter hit with car driven by father for being 'too Westernised' dies.  A 20-year-old woman from Iraq whose father allegedly hit her with his car because she had become too Westernised has died from her injuries, authorities said.  Noor Faleh Almaleki had been in hospital since October 20, when police say her father ran her and her boyfriend's mother down with his Jeep as the women were walking across a parking lot in the west Phoenix suburb of Peoria.

There Is No Honor; There's Only Killing.  [Scroll down slowly]  Before the 20-year-old died, prosecutor Stephanie Low told a Maricopa County court that, "By his own admission, this was an intentional act and the reason was that his daughter had brought shame upon him and his family."  So where is CAIR, which bills itself as "America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization?"  Spokesman Ibrahim Hooper told me, "We tend to deal with things that are related to Islam and the Muslim community."

An act of appalling cowardice.  And where Almaleki comes from, it is standard practice that the daughter who disrespects or brings shame upon her family is subject to what they call an honor killing.  Repeating for emphasis:  Almaleki is alleged to have run down two defenseless women as a matter of honor.

Not guilty plea in US 'honour killing'.  An Iraqi immigrant accused of killing his daughter because she had become too Westernised has pleaded not guilty in a US court.  Faleh Hassan Almaleki pleaded not guilty on Monday to two counts of aggravated assault.  Prosecutors are expected to issue harsher charges now that his daughter has died.

Dad accused of daughter's 'honor killing' won't face death.  Prosecutors say a father accused of running down and killing his daughter in what has been described as an "honor killing" will not face the death penalty.

Muslims Exempt from Death Penalty in U.S.?  Last October there was another in the growing number of Islamic honor killings in the United States when a Muslim in Peoria, Arizona, Faleh Almaleki, got into his Jeep Cherokee and ran down his twenty-year-old daughter Noor, as well as her boyfriend's mother, Amal Khalaf.  Noor died not long thereafter, and Faleh Almaleki was charged with first-degree murder, aggravated assault and two counts of leaving the scene of a serious accident.  But prosecutors announced this week that he will not face the death penalty — it wouldn't be multicultural.

An American Honor Killing.  In a quiet suburban parking lot outside of Phoenix, a father floors the gas on his Jeep Grand Cherokee and heads straight for his 20-year-old daughter.  His goal:  to protect his family's "honor."  Yes, honor crimes have washed up on our shores.

Trial begins for Iraqi immigrant accused of killing his daughter.  An Iraqi immigrant accused of killing his daughter because he believed she was too Westernised is to go on trial in Arizona this month.  Faleh Hassan Almaleki, 50, faces life in prison if convicted.  The case raised awareness about incident of so-called 'honour killings' in the U.S.

Arizona "honor killing" trial set to start.  An Iraqi immigrant is due to begin trial on Monday [1/24/2011] to face charges he murdered his daughter by running her over with a Jeep because he believed she was too Westernized.

We Are All Noor Almaleki.  The honor killing trial begins in Phoenix today [1/24/2011] of Faleh Hassan Almaleki, an Iraqi Muslim immigrant who killed his 20-year-old daughter, Noor Almaleki, on October 20, 2009, because she had become too Westernized.  Almaleki had crashed his jeep into Noor and her boyfriend's mother in a parking lot of a state Department of Economic Security office in Peoria, a Phoenix suburb.  The mother survived, but Noor went into a coma for two weeks and then died from her injuries.

34 years in jail for Iraqi who killed his daughter.  An Iraqi immigrant has been sentenced to 34 years in an Arizona prison for running over his daughter because she became too Westernized.  Faleh Hassan Almaleki was sentenced after being convicted of second-degree murder in the October 2009 death of his 20-year-old Noor Almaleki.

Justice Served in an American Honor Killing.  Arizona Judge Roland Steinle has just sentenced Faleh Almaleki to 34½ years in prison.  According to live reporting from the courtroom, the judge noted that Almaleki showed no remorse after the murder, that he did not forgive his daughter, that he did what suited his own purpose.  The judge also said this was the hardest case he had to face in his six years on the bench.  He found no mitigating factors and sentenced Almaleki to 34 and 1/2 years:  15 years for the aggravated assault of Khalaf, 3 and 1/2 years for leaving the scene of an accident, and 16 years for the second-degree murder of his daughter.  He was facing a maximum total of 46 years.

Almaleki Receives 34-Year Sentence Murder, Aggravated Assault.  An Iraqi immigrant has been sentenced to 34½ years in an Arizona prison for running over his daughter because she became too Westernized.  Faleh Hassan Almaleki was convicted of second-degree murder in the October 2009 death of his 20-year-old daughter, Noor Almaleki.

Police Say Iraqi Immigrant Father Targeted Daughter in Honor Killing.  An audio tape obtained by Fox News sheds new light into the 2009 murder of an Iraqi-born woman who was killed in Arizona after her father drove over her in what police believe was an honor killing.  According to the tape, as Noor Al-Maleki, 20, clung to life in intensive care, Peoria police believed that her father, Faleh Al-Maleki, had targeted her for an honor killing — and that other members of her family might try to kill her in her hospital bed.




The case of Rifqa Bary

Girl Says Family Wants To Kill Her For Being Christian.  An Ohio girl ran away to Orlando because she said her family threatened to kill her for converting to Christianity.  Rifqa Bary, 17, said she was threatened by her family because she converted from Islam to Christianity.

A Slow-Motion Honor Killing.  A seventeen-year-old girl from Ohio, Rifqa Bary, fears for her life today.  She is afraid that her own parents will murder her.  Her father, she explains, "said he would kill me.  Or he'd have me sent back to Sri Lanka where they'd put me in the asylum."  Her crime in their eyes?  She has converted to Christianity from Islam...

Court Expected to Send Runaway Teen Home Despite Muslim Honor Killing Fears.  A 17-year-old girl who fled to Florida after converting from Islam to Christianity will almost certainly be forced to return home to Ohio, experts say, despite her fears that she will become the victim of an honor killing for abandoning her parents' faith.

Muslims Don't Murder Apostates — And 9/11 Had Nothing To Do With Islam.  Fathima Rifqa Bary, the Muslim teenager who converted to Christianity at least four years ago but who only recently ran away, has been taken away from the two good Samaritan Christian pastors who took her in and is now in state custody in Florida.  On Friday, a judge will decide whether her case should be heard in Florida or in Ohio.  Her parents have "lawyered" up, her father Mohamed Bary, a jeweler, insists that he never threatened to kill her, that he wants her to come home.

Save Rifqa Bary From an Honor Killing.  Americans and Europeans have learned at least one unpleasant truth about unfettered immigration, even if government officials don't want to admit it:  many of the immigrants are criminals.  European jails are full of North African Muslims.  American jails are full of Mexicans and other Hispanic illegal aliens.  Unhappily, however, another crime related to immigration is growing in the United States and Canada:  honor killing.

Runaway Christian Convert to Stay in Florida for Now, Judge Rules.  A 17-year-old runaway who claims she fled her Muslim family's home in Ohio because she feared becoming the victim of an "honor killing" will stay in Florida — temporarily — a judge ruled Friday [8/21/2009].

Rifqa Bary allowed to remain in Florida.  Well it looks like legal analysts were wrong about this case.  Many legal experts claimed that there was nothing a Florida judge could do to interevene.  However, at her hearing yesterday [8/21/2009], Bary was allowed to stay with her foster parents in Florida until her September 3rd hearing.

Killing Rifqa.  Rifqa Bary faces death for her apostasy from Islam, while the media ignores the solid religious and institutional grounding for the practice.  Today.  In America.

'Apostate' Girl's Father:  The Unreported Story.  [Mohammad] Bary dissolved his business in early July when it became increasingly clear that Rifqa was a true convert to Christianity.  It was at that time that he waved her laptop at her and said, "You are dead to me.  You are not my daughter."  He told her:  "I will kill you."  His sudden dissolving of his business indicate[s] that he was deadly serious.  But you won't learn them from the mainstream media.

Rifqa's Apostasy:  The leftist/Islamic alliance is pulling out all the stops to blunt the impact of the word of a 17-year-old girl, Rifqa Bary — who converted from Islam to Christianity and fled from her family after her father threatened to kill her.  In Islam, apostasy carries the sentence of death.  And — according to Bary — her father was intent on carrying it out.  The Leftist/Islamic spin machine was slow on the uptake.  They assumed that Rifqa would be sent back to Ohio at her jurisdiction hearing last Friday.  But she wasn't.

So then the spider says to the fly, "come a little closer."
Attorney says runaway convert has nothing to fear.  Nothing in a police report supports the belief of an Ohio teenager that she would be in jeopardy if she returned home, despite her claims that she fears for her life for converting from Islam to Christianity, her mother's attorney said in court Thursday [9/3/2009].

Christian Girls, Interrupted.  [Rifqa] Bary's case doesn't fit neatly into the standard categories.  On the one hand, Mr. and Mrs. Bary are flying the parental-rights flag typically associated with conservatives. ... On the other hand, the fear of an honor killing — even in the United States — is not irrational.

Judge: Rifqa Bary will go back to Ohio.  An Orange County Circuit judge said today he will send Ohio runaway Fathima Rifqa Bary back to her home state, but only after her parents provide immigration paperwork and other officials ensure she can continue her schooling through a Florida online school.

Runaway convert back in Ohio after 3-month flight.  A teenage girl is back in Ohio after running away to Florida because she said she feared her father would harm or kill her for converting from Islam to Christianity.

Rifqa Bary in Danger Again.  Now that Rifqa Bary, the 17-year-old Christian girl who fled her Muslim parents because she feared her father would kill her, has been sent back to Ohio, supporters of the girl are greatly concerned about her safety. ... The Barys are illegal immigrants who supposedly came to the United States to get treatment for Rifqa's right eye.  Rifqa says she never got the treatment.

Ohio Imposes Sharia on an ex-Muslim Girl.  Why has Rifqa been denied "pastoral guidance"?  Convicts, murderers, rapists, and pedophiles have access to "pastoral guidance".  Is that how powerful and influential Islamic jihad has become in the state of Ohio — that one young girl is starved of spiritual nourishment so as not to insult Islam?  Has everyone gone mad?

Wishful Thinking, Biased Reporting Endanger Rifqa Bary.  According to reporter Meredith Heagney of the Columbus Dispatch, who wore a hijab when she visited a Columbus mosque and has consistently filed slanted, anti-Rifqa stories on this case, the goal of this case plan is reunification of the Bary family. ... This is classic wishful thinking.  Why won't the court listen to expert testimony on Islamic law?  There is no discussion with apostates in Islamic law.  The apostate is ordered to return to Islam and is killed if he or she refuses.

CAIR's Strategy of Deception:  Sharia law covers every minute of every day of a person's life in Islam.  Of course there are many peaceful aspects of Sharia, but as the 17 year old Rifqa Bary and many others have tried to inform people, Sharia law also has many violent aspects which can no longer be ignored. Sharia law is an all or nothing.  A Muslim can't decide (and be in conformance with Islamic law) that they want to abide by some aspects and ignore other aspects such as death for apostasy or calling for hatred and violence against Christians and Jews.

Ohio judge:  Runaway convert can avoid parents.  An Ohio judge has ruled that a runaway Christian convert is not required to meet with her Muslim parents as part of a possible reconciliation plan.

Two happy outcomes for kids in court at Christmas.  [Scroll down]  The good news for 17-year-old Rifqa Bary is that she will NOT be forced to return to her Muslim parents, whom Rifqa believes will "honor kill" her because of her conversion to Christianity.  Rifqa ran away to a Florida Christian congregation earlier this year.

The Prosecution of Rifqa Bary.  There is a war of attrition going on in the Rifqa Bary case.  Rifqa is the girl who converted from Islam to Christianity and fled from her family in fear for her life — and the Islamic machine is attempting to grind her down by constant mental abuse.  The persecution is so obvious, and yet so mundane that no one seems to take notice.  Behold the banality of evil.  Some sources say that a Muslim psychiatrist was assigned to Rifqa after she fled to Florida from her Ohio home.

Runaway teen convert and parents end dispute.  The long legal dispute over runaway teen convert Fathima Rifqa Bary apparently ended in Franklin County Juvenile Court late this afternoon [1/19/2010] when the girl and her parents agreed that she'll stay in the custody of Children Services and the family will try to resolve their issues with counseling.

Facebook Fatwa on Rifqa.  Facebook is full of death threats and other vicious material about Rifqa Bary, the teenage convert from Islam to Christianity who is in a fight for her life in juvenile court on Franklin County, Ohio.  She left Islam and converted to Christianity, and she has been persecuted for it ever since.

Agreement between Rifqa Bary, parents to settle conflict short-lived.  The agreement between Rifqa Bary and her parents to settle their conflict through counseling has ended without a single meeting between the parents and their daughter, according to a motion filed in Franklin County Juvenile Court.

Prosecuted for Saving A Girl's Life.  A girl flees from her home in fear for her life — and law enforcement goes after the people who helped her.  That's the situation in the Rifqa Bary case.  The Columbus Dispatch reported this about Rifqa's friend Brian Williams:  "An Ohio minister accused of driving a teenage runaway to a bus station last year has retained a lawyer as police say they're investigating whether anyone broke the law in helping the Christian convert leave home for Florida."

Rifqa Bary Suffering from Cancer.  There has been a terrible development in the case of Rifqa Bary, the teenage girl who fled from her home in fear for her life after her devout Muslim father found out she had become a Christian.  According to Rifqa, who is now in foster care in Ohio, she has been diagnosed with advanced uterine cancer.  While this is a tragedy, how Rifqa is being victimized by her lawyers and her parents is nothing less than an atrocity.

Freedom of Religion:  A Precious American Right, an Islamic Capital Crime.  Given the anti-Christian views of many Muslims and of all the Western book-and-column writing atheists and secularists, I wonder if Rifqa Bary, the teenage convert from Islam to Christianity, is not respected as a hero who is fighting for her freedom of religion but seen, rather, as someone who has taken yet another reactionary path.  Perhaps if Rifqa had launched a lawsuit for the right to wear hijab or a burqa in Ohio she might immediately have gotten mainstream media sympathy.

Rifqa Bary may apply for immigration status.  A court ruling yesterday has opened the door for Rifqa Bary, a former Muslim turned Christian, to apply for immigrant status when she turns 18 next week.  Rifqa Bary's story has been widely covered by media, including The Underground at because of her courageous fight for her life after she left her Muslim faith to become a Christian.

Free At Last: Rifqa Bary's Victory in Ohio.  Christmas arrived early this year for this brave, young ex-Muslim convert to Christianity.  Judge Mary Goodrich in Columbus, Ohio, has just decided that Rifqa, who will turn eighteen in five days, does not have to return to her family (all of whom are here illegally from Sri Lanka).  According to breaking local news, "Goodrich also said it's not in the girl's best interest to return her to her native Sri Lanka.  Bary is (also) an illegal immigrant.  The ruling allows her attorneys to file for a special immigration status to allow her to stay in the U.S. while she continues medical treatment following recent surgery for uterine cancer."

Rifqa Bary's New Problem.  Rifqa Bary, the teenage girl who fled to Florida from her Ohio home in fear for her life after her Muslim parents discovered her conversion to Christianity, has just turned eighteen.  Her life is now hers, and her Florida and Ohio lawyers have embarked upon an unseemly victory dance to spin their appalling and failed legal strategy.  I have stood silently by watching this, but now they are spinning their failure into a fundraising circus and smearing me and my colleagues, and that cannot stand.

Radical Muslim Goes After Rifqa's Attorney.  There is more fall-out from the Rifqa Bary case.  Rifqa is the young girl who converted to Christianity and fled her home in Ohio on the grounds that she feared for her safety due to her parents' Islamic views.  Just weeks ago Rifqa turned 18, and we saw a great victory when her freedom and status were secured as a "Permanent Legal Resident" in the U.S.  Now comes word from one of her lawyers...



Yemeni 12-year-old dies in labor.  A 12-year-old Yemeni child bride died after struggling for three days in labor to give birth, a local human rights organization said Saturday.

The Editor says...
Somehow the words Muslim and Islam escaped the writer of this article, but the word "un-Islamic" appears — one time.

13-year-old Yemeni bride dies of bleeding.  [EDITOR'S NOTE:  No synopsis or excerpt is posted here because (1) the source is the Associated Press and (2) the first sentence of the AP story is too graphic to meet the standards of this web site.]

Rapist husband held in Yemen.  The family of a 13-year-old Yemeni girl who died after being sexually violated by her husband a few days into her arranged marriage is demanding his execution.  Ilham al-Ashi died Friday, five days after marrying Abed al-Hekmi, 24, in a case which has again brought into sharp focus the plight of Yemen's so-called "brides of death."

Muslim man killed his German-born wife because she was 'too independent'.  A Muslim asylum seeker has been sentenced to life in prison after killing his German-born wife because she was 'too independent', a court in Germany heard today [8/21/2009].  The 27-year-old Kurdish man, identified only as Onder B, was found guilty today of stabbing his wife in the eyes, beating her with a billiard cue and then running over her in his car.

Model seeks public flogging.  A Muslim model who will be caned for drinking beer said on Thursday [8/20/2009] she asked Malaysian authorities to punish her in public instead of in a prison, but they refused to go against official procedures.  Kartika Sari Dewi Shukarno, 32, is scheduled next week to be the first woman in this Muslim-majority country to be flogged under Islamic law after she was arrested in a raid and sentenced by a Shariah court for drinking alcohol at a hotel lounge last year.

Muslim model spared from punishment.  Islamic officials have unexpectedly freed a Muslim model scheduled to be caned this week for drinking beer.

Sudan women 'lashed for trousers'.  Several Sudanese women have been flogged as a punishment for dressing "indecently", according to a local journalist who was arrested with them.  Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein, who says she is facing 40 lashes, said she and 12 other women wearing trousers were arrested in a restaurant in the capital, Khartoum.

When they say "trousers", they are apparently taking about blue jeans.
'Whip me if you dare' says Lubna Hussein, Sudan's defiant trouser woman.  As the morality police crowded around her table in a Khartoum restaurant, leering at her to see what she was wearing, Lubna Hussein had no idea she was about to become the best-known woman in Sudan.  She had arrived at the Kawkab Elsharq Hall on a Friday night to book a cousin's wedding party, and while she waited she watched an Egyptian singer and sipped a coke.

Sudanese woman convicted of wearing trousers freed.  A woman journalist convicted of public indecency for wearing trousers outdoors was freed Tuesday [9/8/2009], despite her own desire to serve a month in prison as protest against Sudan's draconian morality laws. ... She told The Associated Press that she was freed Tuesday after the fine was paid without her knowledge by the Journalist Union, which is headed by a member of the ruling party.

No flogging for trouser-wearing woman in Sudan.  A woman journalist was convicted Monday [9/7/2009] of public indecency for wearing trousers, but was spared a sentence of flogging.  A defiant Lubna Hussein said she would not pay a $200 fine and would take a month in prison instead to protest Sudan's draconian morality laws.

Sudan woman jailed for refusing to pay trouser fine: lawyer.  Sudanese woman journalist Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein was sent to jail after refusing to pay a 200-dollar fine imposed early today for wearing trousers deemed "indecent", one of her lawyers said.  "She has been taken to the women's prison in Omdurman," the twin city of Khartoum, Kamal Omar told AFP.  Earlier, a Khartoum court spared Hussein a whipping for wearing "indecent" trousers but instead fined her 500 Sudanese pounds (200 dollars).

Saudi religious police blamed for 'honor killings'.  Saudi Arabia's religious police are being blamed for the death of two sisters who were murdered in what is known as an 'honor killing' by their brother after the sisters were arrested for allegedly mixing with unrelated men.  The Society for Defending Women's Rights in Saudi Arabia said the religious police arrested the two sisters, aged 19 and 21, thus putting their lives in danger.

Let's All Accept Islam.  Mr. Obama, your speech in Cairo encouraged me to reconsider my thoughts on how I view Islam as a religion in today's society.  I have really thought it over and decided to fully accept Islam ... with just a few caveats.  First, they have to stop treating women as second class citizens.  Don't tell me those head covers are worn by choice.  They are forced on them just like honor killings.

The Speech.  What struck me most about Barack Obama's speech today [6/4/2009] in Cairo is what was missing:  Iraq.  He didn't skip Iraq entirely, but his discussion of it was perfunctory and incomplete. ... Iraq today is a model for many of those things Obama says he hopes to see in the region — women right's, religious freedom, the defeat of "violent extremism," economic development and opportunity, and, yes, democracy. ... In Saudi Arabia, women cannot drive.  In Iran, they're stoned on suspicion of adultery.  In Pakistan, politicians publicly defend "honor killings" of young girls who have the audacity to choose their own husbands.  Those women are struggling for equality.

Let Women Wear the Hijab: The Emptiness of Obama's Cairo Speech.  With women being stoned, raped, abused, battered, mutilated, and slaughtered on a daily basis across the globe, violence that is so often perpetrated in the name of religion, the most our president can speak about is protecting their right to wear the hijab?

When the Extreme Becomes the Norm.  But to the women who are compelled to dress according to the requirements of others, Obama had nothing to say at all, as if the only "right" at stake were the right to obey an instruction that is, in fact — if it matters — not found in the Quran.  In Turkey, too, head scarves for women are outlawed in some contexts.  Is this, too, Islamophobia?  Does the president think that the veil and the burqa are also freely chosen fashion statements?

Why Has Obama Got It In for Muslim Women?  Obama would protest, of course, that he does not condone forced marriages or honor killings; indeed he says, in his Cairo speech, that women should be free to choose "traditional roles."  But how free is that choice, in a family where Islam can be exercised "unimpeded"?

Obama Throws Muslim Women Under the Bus.  It is a Catholic woman's right to become a nun and shave or cover her hair; it is an Orthodox or Hasidic Jewish woman's right to shave or cover her hair; and it is a Muslim woman's right to cover her hair and her face — as long as those women who refuse to do so are not browbeaten, beaten, ostracized, stalked, stoned to death or honor-murdered.  I have written about just such cases in the West ... cases in which young American- and Canadian-Muslim girls were tormented, then killed because they refused to wear hijab.  In Europe, where there are many more Muslims, there is a veritable epidemic of such exceedingly dishonorable and incredibly gruesome "honor" murders.

More about Obama's speech in Cairo, June 4, 2009.

Muslim Woman to Be Flogged in Malaysia Over Beer.  An Islamic court in Malaysia has sentenced a Muslim woman to be flogged with a rattan cane for having a beer in a nightclub, a court official said Tuesday [7/21/2009].  It is rare for a woman in Malaysia to be sentenced to caning — a punishment usually reserved for men in various crimes ranging from rape to bribery.

Islam's Hatred of a Woman's Laugh.  Over the weekend, Hamas policemen in Gaza attempted to arrest a Palestinian female journalist, Asma al-Ghul.  Her crime?  She came to a Gaza beach dressed "immodestly" (not wearing hijab) and was caught laughing in front of others.  The police ended up confiscating her passport and she has been living in fear inside her home ever since.

Law will let Afghan husbands starve wives who withhold sex.  An Afghan law which legalised rape has been sent back to parliament with a clause letting husbands starve their wives if they refuse to have sex.  President Hamid Karzai ordered a review of the legislation after The Independent revealed that it negated the need for consent within marriage.

Man kills 'immoral' sister.  A 20-year-old Jordanian stabbed his married sister and smashed her head with a rock after accusing her of "immoral behaviour", a security official said on Friday [7/10/2009], a day after a similar crime took place.  "The suspect stabbed his younger sister 20 times with a kitchen knife before smashing her head with a rock inside the family's home on Thursday night, in Nozha" in east Amman, the official told AFP.

A Frenzy of Honor Killings.  On June 24, 2009, in Germany, a Turkish father, Mehmet O, a kebab shop owner, repeatedly knifed his fifteen-year-old daughter, Bursa, while she was sleeping.  Despite the fact that Bursa, her mother, and her sister all wore hijab, Mehmet O. still felt Bursa was too "westernized," and that she did not want her "strict Muslim father to control her life."  Bursa's friends described her as a "fun-loving girl, (who) loved hip hop music... But that is no reason to kill someone."

Court halves man's jail term for 'honour' killing.  A court on Tuesday [7/7/2009] halved the jail term of a 29-year-old Jordanian man who shot his raped sister 12 times "in the name of honour", a judicial official said.  The criminal court initially sentenced the man to 15 years with hard labour for killing his sister in 2008 in Mowaqqar, southeast of the capital Amman, but immediately reduced it to seven-and-a-half years.

'If We Now Kill Schoolgirls, You Shouldn't Be Surprised'.  Responding to threats from the Taliban, at least 10 girls' schools have shut down near Kunduz in northern Afghanistan.  Visiting the schools is a dangerous proposition — a trip leading directly into the heart of Islamist territory.

Girls' school blown up.  Militants bombed a girls' primary school on the outskirts of Pakistan's Peshawar city on Friday [6/26/2009], the latest in a series of such attacks blighting the northwest of the country, police said.  The school was badly damaged during the attack in Mattni village, local police official Abdul Ghafoor Afridi told AFP.  Forty kilogrammes of explosives were used to raze the building, although some of the structures were left standing, he added.

Ottawa man guilty of 'honour killings'.  A man who killed his sister and her fiance because they brought dishonour on his family was sentenced to life in prison yesterday [5/30/2009] with no chance of parole for 25 years.  Hasibullah Sadiqi, 23, said nothing after a jury of seven men and five women found him guilty of two counts of first-degree murder in the Sept. 19, 2006 gun slayings of his sister, Khatera Sadiqi, 20, and her fiance, Feroz Mangal, 23.

My imam father came after me with an axe.  We are all too familiar with the persecution of Christians in countries such as Pakistan and Afghanistan.  Yet sitting in front of me is a British woman whose life has been threatened in this country solely because she is a Christian.  Indeed, so real is the threat that the book she has written about her experiences has had to appear under an assumed name.  The book is called The Imam's Daughter because "Hannah Shah" is just that:  the daughter of an imam in one of the tight-knit Deobandi Muslim Pakistani communities in the north of England.

Schoolgirls Poison-Gassed in Afghanistan and Honor-Murdered in Sweden.  Yesterday [5/12/2009] in Charikar, Afghanistan, for the second time in two weeks, 50 innocent schoolgirls were poison-gassed at school and had to be hospitalized. ... Such attacks on Afghan girls schools have escalated within the past year.  However, this barbaric, Taliban mentality is alive and well among some Afghan immigrants in the West.

'Honour killings' about men asserting control over women, expert tells Sadiqi murder trial.  Honour killings involve a cleansing of dishonour aimed at restoring a family's respect after the so-called "misbehaviour" of female relatives, an expert has told the Ottawa murder trial of Hasibullah Sadiqi.  The "act of purifying through blood" involves control of women by male family members, said Shahrzad Mojab, a University of Toronto professor who has researched the topic extensively.

British airline forces stewardess to Muslim dress, walk behind males.  Lisa Ashton said NO.  She walked off the job at BMI per TimesOnLine.  That Brit airlines told her to wear the full Muslim garb — head to toe — and walk behind men when serving the airlines going to Saudi Arabia.  Ashton told BMI that not even in Saudi Arabia is that law.

Not buying the abaya.  Should stewardesses flying to Saudi Arabia be required to wear head-to-toe coverings and walk behind men?  One airline thinks so.  British Midland Airways is going to absurd and insulting lengths to patronize backward habits of the Middle East by forcing its female flight attendants to dress and behave in a stereotype of subservient Saudi women.  When flight attendant Lisa Ashton stood up to the policy, she was fired.

Father, mother, brother charged in 'honour killings'.  The father, mother and brother of the three teenage girls found dead in a car submerged in a canal near Kingston on June 30 have been charged with first-degree murder.  Montreal residents Mohammed Shafi, an electronics businessman, wife Tooba Mohammad Yhaya and 18-year-old son Hamid Mohammed Shafi were also charged with the killing of the fourth person found in the Rideau Canal, 50-year-old Rona Amir Mohammed.

'Crime of honour' arrests.  A Montreal businessman charged with killing four members of his family conspired with his second wife and his oldest son to commit mass murder in a bid to restore his honour, relatives of one of the victims have told Sun Media.  The family members allege Mohammed Shafi had beaten his 19-year-old daughter Zainab and threatened recently to kill her and the woman he had passed off as his cousin.

Family members charged with murder in submerged car case.  Kingston police have charged the mother, father and brother of three young girls found dead with a caregiver in a car submerged in the Rideau Canal with first degree murder. ... At a press conference Thursday [7/23/2009], police said they had charged Mohammad Shafia, the girls' father, Tooba Shafia Yahya, the girls' mother, and the girls' oldest brother with four counts each of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Were deaths of 4 women a matter of 'honour'?  That's a theory being pursued by police as family members are charged with first-degree murder in bizarre drownings of a woman and three teenaged girls in the Rideau Canal.  After the tragedy, the mother and father wept, while the eldest son lashed out in anger, each calling it an accident, a rebellious teenager's joyride gone terribly wrong.  Yesterday, as they filed, handcuffed, one by one, into the prisoners' box, prosecutors offered a much darker explanation, calling it murder.

Rise in Canadian 'honour killings' should not be ignored:  expert.  As many as 5,000 women and girls lose their lives — most at the hands of family members — in "honour killings" around the world each year, according to the United Nations.  Up to a dozen have died for the same reason in Canada in the last decade, and it's happening more often, says Amin Muhammad, a psychiatrist who studies honour killings at Memorial University in Newfoundland.

Kingston Police Call It A "Muslim Honor Killing.".  At 2 pm EST today [7/23/2009], on a CFRA radio press conference, it was announced that the deaths of four Afghan-Canadian girls and women was a "Muslim honor killing."  If so, this is the fifth known honor killing in Canada since 1999 and it brings the death toll to nine victims.  I am no statistician but I have friends who are and they tell me that this is a very high number given that the Muslim population in Canada is no more than 750,000.

Kingston killings show there's no such thing as foreign values.  The police were careful not to say anything about Islam and honour killings, and several local commentators were quick to point out that domestic violence — even murder — is not a uniquely Islamic phenomenon.  We have plenty of that not motivated by religion in general, or Islam in particular.  Yet in a murder case in which the accused and the victims are all recent immigrants from Afghanistan, and in which all the accused are named Mohammed — the foreignness of it all is related to religion and nationality.  One simply cannot avoid it.

Family's plans to murder daughters, first wife hatched months before: police.  The suspicious circumstances that led to a car, carrying the bodies of three sisters and their father's first wife, being submerged in the Rideau Canal began to unravel on Thursday [7/23/2009], amid allegations of an unfathomable scenario where the girls' parents and brother conspired in a premeditated murder.

The darkest brand of 'honour'.  When an Ethiopian man in Alexandria, Va., killed his wife, the report in last week's Alexandria Gazette Packet tiptoed nervously around his motive.  It said that cultural issues were involved and that he had ordered her not to interact with co-workers.  In case the point still wasn't clear, the reporter attempted to explain:  "In Ethiopia, women have more defined roles."  That's a cowardly way of saying that women automatically obey their husbands in Ethiopia but sometimes don't in America.  The deliberate ambiguity would be comic if it were not attached to a tragedy.

Code Pink Hearts Iran's Mullahs.  On Wednesday, November 26, a 39-year-old woman, Fatemeh Haqiqat-Pajouh, was hanged, together with nine male prisoners, in Tehran's infamous Evin prison.  In 2001, Fatemeh had killed her husband while he was attempting to rape Fatemeh's then-14-year-old daughter, Zahra, born from a previous marriage. ... A few days before Fatemeh's execution, Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans, two wealthy American women and co-founders of Code Pink, arrived in Tehran on a "citizen diplomacy" trip. ... Benjamin and Evans wrote daily accounts of their trip to Tehran on their blog — and wasted not a word on poor Fatemeh or on the tragedy of women's rights in Iran under the mullahs and their Sharia laws.

Taleban threaten to blow up girls' schools if they refuse to close.  The Taleban have ordered the closure of all girls' schools in the war-ravaged Swat district and warned parents and teachers of dire consequences if the ban is flouted.  In an announcement made in mosques and broadcast on radio, the militant group set a deadline of January 15 for its order to be obeyed or it would blow up school buildings and attack schoolgirls.  It also told women not to set foot outside their homes without being fully covered.

'There's no honour in killing,' top judge tells Muslim family in test case.  A senior judge yesterday condemned the notion of honour killings as an affront to English law.  Lord Justice Wall declared that 'they are acts of simply sordid criminal behaviour' and 'had nothing to do with any concept of honour known to English law'.  In an Appeal Court test case he ruled that the welfare of children should not be put at risk because of the 'honour' idea held in some Muslim families.

Women told:  'You have dishonoured your family, please kill yourself'.  When Elif's father told her she had to kill herself in order to spare him from a prison sentence for her murder, she considered it long and hard.  "I loved my father so much, I was ready to commit suicide for him even though I hadn't done anything wrong," the 18-year-old said.  "But I just couldn't go through with it.  I love life too much."

Saudi judge sentences pregnant gang-rape victim to 100 lashes for committing adultery.  A Saudi judge has ordered a woman should be jailed for a year and receive 100 lashes after she was gang-raped, it was claimed last night.  The 23-year-old woman, who became pregnant after her ordeal, was reportedly assaulted after accepting a lift from a man.  He took her to a house to the east of the city of Jeddah where she was attacked by him and four of his friends throughout the night.

Saudi princess says she is 'ready to drive'.  Princess Amira al-Taweel, the wife of the conservative Islamic kingdom's most renowned businessman, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, said she already drives when she travels abroad.  "Certainly I'm ready to drive a car," she said in an interview with al-Watan, a Saudi Arabian daily newspaper.  "I have an international driver's licence, and I drive a car in all the countries I travel to."

Saudi court sentences 75-year-old woman to lashes.  A 75-year-old widow in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to 40 lashes and four months in jail for mingling with two young men who are not close relatives, drawing new criticism for the kingdom's ultraconservative religious police and judiciary.

Man kills 'immoral' sister.  A Jordanian man was charged on Saturday [4/11/2009] with premeditated murder after he said he stabbed his pregnant sister to death because of her alleged "immoral behaviour", a judicial official said.  The 25-year-old suspect "stabbed his 28-year-old married sister in the face, stomach and back, and to make sure she was dead, he cut her throat, before turning himself in and confessing to the crime this morning", in the southern governorate of Tafileh, the official told AFP.

Father charged with hiring hit men to kill mini-skirt-wearing daughter.  An Azeri immigrant in Russia's northern city of Saint Petersburg has been charged with hiring hit men to kill his 21-year-old daughter for wearing a mini-skirt, police say.

Afghan Taliban Kill Young Woman, Man for Eloping.  A Taliban firing squad killed a young couple in southwestern Afghanistan for trying to elope, shooting them with AK-47s in front of a crowd in a lawless, militant-controlled region, officials said Tuesday [4/14/2009].  The woman, 19-year-old Gul Pecha, and the man, 21-year-old Abdul Aziz, were accused by the militants of immoral acts, and a council of conservative clerics decided that the two should be killed, officials said.

Speaking Truth to Muslim Power.  There is probably no issue that angers militants more than women's rights.  Advancing this cause in traditional Muslim societies caught in the merciless whirlwind of globalization isn't easy, but no effort is likely to bear more fruit in the long term than having American officials become public champions of women's rights in Muslim lands.

The left romances the jihad.  Ask those on the left what values they champion, and they will say equality, tolerance, women's rights, gay rights, workers rights and human rights.  Militant Islamists oppose all that, not infrequently through the application of lethal force.  So how does one explain the burgeoning left-Islamist alliance?





The ironic case of Muzzammil Hassan

I had never heard of this man until he was charged with murder, but apparently he and his wife ran a TV network or cable channel of some sort, designed to show how peaceful and rational Muslims are.  The irony in this story would have been hilarious if the end results had not been so gruesome.

Prominent Orchard Park man charged with beheading his wife.  Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community — reported her death to police Thursday [2/12/2009].  Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37.  Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

Headless body in gutless press.  Just asking, but are beheadings common in western New York?  I used to spend a lot of time in that neck of the woods and I don't remember decapitation as a routine form of murder.  Yet the killing of Aasiya Hassan seems to have elicited a very muted response.  When poor Mrs Hassan's husband launched his TV network to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims, he had no difficulty generating column inches ... The media's lack of curiosity is in marked contrast to their willingness to propagandize for the launch of Mr Hassan's station.  It also helps explain why the US newspaper business is dying.

Enraged US TV chief beheads wife at station.  The crime drips with brutal irony: a woman decapitated, allegedly by her estranged husband, in the offices of the television network the couple founded with the hope of countering Muslim stereotypes.  Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan is accused of beheading his wife last week, days after she filed for divorce.

Saudi money behind wife-beheader's TV operation?.  Muzzammil Hassan, the man who started a TV operation to improve the image of Islam, and then beheaded his wife, turns out to be something of an international man of mystery.  Dan Riehl has been researching his background, and discovered that, despite claims he was raising money in America, he raised money for his TV operation in Saudi Arabia.

Beheaded in Buffalo:  The Honor Killing of Asiya Z. Hassan.  On February 13, 2009, in Orchard Park, a suburb of Buffalo, 44 year-old Muzzamil Hassan, a prominent Muslim businessman was arrested for having beheaded his wife, 37 year-old Aasiya Z. Hassan.  Yes, he beheaded her.  Aasiya's crime?  She dared to obtain an order of protection which forced her violent husband out of their home.  We are now sadly familiar with some high profile Islamic beheadings of infidels in Muslim lands; Daniel Pearl, Nicholas Berg, immediately come to mind.

The 'truth to power' gap.  [Scroll down slowly]  Have you heard about the founder of a television network in upstate New York dedicated to showing Muslims as peace-loving and political moderates?  You might have when he started his enterprise in 2004, as the venture received lavish attention.  But when Muzzammil Hassan allegedly cut off his estranged wife's head this month, coverage not only was muted, but the media bent over backward to dispel any notion that religion had anything to do with it.  After all, isn't wife-beheading an ecumenical practice?

Headless Body in Legless Story.  Spousal murder is not unusual.  Beheading your wife is.  If Muzzammil Hassan decapitated his as an Islamic ritual, then his entire professional life — Mister Moderate Muslim — was a lie. ... That's what makes this a story rather than one family's tragedy.  If you're not intrigued by the apparent fraud at the heart of this man's life and work — a fraud in which the U.S. media cheerfully colluded — you lack the elementary curiosity necessary to be a journalist.

Bridges TV, a Wife's Beheading, and Honor Murder.  One hasn't heard much about Bridges TV for a while, ... presumably because its once-shimmering prospects declined under the weight of the realities of North American demographics.  But it is about to reappear in the news with a vengeance, and for the most ironic possible reason.  The station that Muzzammil ("Mo") Hassan, 44, founded with the achingly benevolent idea, in the words of a November 2004 biography, to help "non-Muslims overcome the negative images they may have of both Muslims and Islam" has now abundantly enhanced negative images of Muslims and Islam.

Beheaded wife had "no authority" to divorce her alleged murderer.  The murder and beheading of Aasiya Zubair Hassan transcends the issue of domestic violence that ends tragically.  There is more to this story that must be told, if not for the sake of the victim, for the sake of future victims and for the sake of our Western culture.

Slain Orchard Park woman was stabbed before beheading.  Aasiya Z. Hassan was stabbed several times before being beheaded Feb. 12, and authorities still aren't sure whether she was alive when she was decapitated.  Sources close to the case also have confirmed that Hassan was attacked with hunting knives.  "The certificate of death is going to say stab wounds and decapitation," one law-enforcement source familiar with the case told The Buffalo News.

If Your Wife Gives You Any Smack Then ... Cut Her Head Off?  In his ongoing efforts to portray Muslims as chummy neighbors, Muzzammil Hassan, founder of Bridges TV, cut his wife's head off last week when Muzzy found out she was going to ditch him.  What's that, you say?  This is the first you've heard of the 2/12/2009 beheading in Buffalo in which a Muslim TV exec chopped his wife's noggin off in one of their office suites?  Oh, I'm sorry.  I assumed that you'd already heard about it — but then I just recalled that ABC, NBC, CBS, and NPR haven't said a word about it since it happened.  Oops.

Were Investors in "Bridges TV" Misled?  April 12, 2007:  The Council on American-Islamic Relations' Philadelphia branch held its first annual dinner and who, of all people, did the Islamist enemy chose to cross state lines to celebrate and award?  None other than Muzzammil Hassan.

Did someone mention CAIR?

The Left and a Woman's Severed Head:  Within hours of the news of Aasiya Z. Hassan's February 12th beheading, allegedly by her husband, Muzzamil Hassan, in Buffalo, American-Muslim organizations and individuals began a dirge bemoaning the existence of domestic violence.  But thanks be to Allah, they affirmed, such violence exists among all faiths and ethnicities.  Such family violence, they insisted, had nothing to do with Islam.  Muslim leaders emphasized that honor killings were "anti-Islamic" or "un-Islamic," a holdover from "pre-Islamic times."  They vowed to preach against it in the mosque.  All well and good.  That Mr. Hassan beheaded his wife — well, that simply wasn't dwelled upon.

Beheading Moderate Islam:  Was the murder of Aasiya an honor killing, for something she did that offended Islam?  The denial and obfuscation began almost immediately after the killing.  Khalid J. Qazi of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) chapter of Western New York, declared:  "There is no place for domestic violence in our religion — none.  Islam would 100 percent condemn it."  This is a strange claim, given the fact that while spousal abuse exists in all cultures, only in Islam does it carry divine sanction.

Beheading of Wife Poses Another Test for U.S. Muslims.  The crime was so brutal, shocking and rife with the worst possible stereotypes about their faith that some U.S. Muslims thought the initial reports were a hoax.  The harsh reality of what happened in an affluent suburb of Buffalo, New York — the beheading of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan and arrest of her estranged husband in the killing — is another crucible for American Muslims.

A history of abuse preceded Orchard Park beheading.  The lives of Muzzammil and Aasiya Hassan were quite different from their public image in the local Muslim and broadcast communities.  In the public eye, they were a dynamic couple, building their — actually her — dream of a Muslim-lifestyle TV channel in the United States.  But police reports compiled for much of their marriage tell another story.

The Deceits Of Bridges TV.  On the political level, its raison d'étre was based on the canard that Muslims in the United States suffer from bias and are victimized.  That an idea took formal expression in 2000, when the Senate passed a resolution inveighing against the "discrimination" and "backlash" suffered by the American Muslim community, an insulting falsehood then and now.  On the ideological level, Bridges TV was a fraud, pretending to be moderate when it was just another member of the "Wahhabi lobby."  Endorsed by some of the worst Islamist functionaries in the country (Nihad Awad, Ibrahim Hooper, Iqbal Yunus, Louay Safi), it was an extremist wolf disguised in moderate sheep's clothing.  On the financial level, Bridges TV marketed itself to investors on the basis of an imaginary population of 7 to 7.4 million U.S. Muslims, or two to three times the actual total, making the station commercially unviable from day one.

What's Behind The Enormous Denial That Beheadings Are Related To Islam?  Recently, Bill O'Reilly had a segment about honor killings in which he interviewed Dr. Dawn Pearlmutter, an expert in ritual murder.  She confirmed much of what I have written before, namely, that beheading is rampant in the Islamic world; that it is accepted as a practice by moderate as well as radical Muslims; that jihadic beheadings are videotaped; that there is a thin line between the public beheadings and the more domestic varieties.  Dr. Pearlmutter said that beheadings are highly symbolic, are always about "restoring honor" or "purity" to the beheader.  Depending on which interpretation of the Qu'ran is followed, a beheading may also prevent the beheaded Muslim from entering Paradise.

A Civilized Dialogue About Islam and Honor Killing.  It has been my privilege to know and to work with Dorchen Leithold who is a fearless, tireless, driven, and heroic champion of womens' rights. ... We now have a genuine disagreement about whether or not Islam plays a role in domestic violence and honor killings, including in the recent horrific beheading of Aasiya Z. Hassan in Buffalo.  Dorchen thinks not, I think there is a profound relationship that we deny at our own peril and to the detriment of Muslim girls and women.

Islam and the Death of Western Civilization.  As for Mr. Hassan, some people have wondered why he's only being charged with second-degree murder, while others are naturally puzzled by the fact his grisly crime hasn't captured more media attention.  While I can't claim to know the answers, I am willing to hazard a guess.  Even though nobody, aside from a defense attorney, would dare suggest that it wasn't a clear-cut case of premeditated murder, I suspect Hassan has been charged with the lesser crime because, as is often the case, a double standard is in play.

Hassan pleads 'not guilty' in decapitation killing of wife.  Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan today was ordered to remain jailed without bail after pleading not guilty to second-degree murder charges in the slaying and beheading of his wife in February in Orchard Park.

A Raw Deal for Muslim Women.  The February 13 beheading of Aasiya Z. Hassan by her husband Muzzamil Hassan, as reported here at Pajamas Media by Phyllis Chesler, has stunned the American Muslim community.  This honor killing is particularly shocking because Hassan co-founded the Bridges TV network, which was created specifically to combat negative stereotypes of Muslims and to supposedly present Americans with an alternative "moderate" form of Islam.  However, the official response to this tragedy from the Muslim community has not been helpful.

DA will challenge any 'insanity' claim in decapitation.  Prosecutors are prepared to challenge the legality of any type of insanity-related defense Muzzammil S. "Mo" Hassan might raise in the decapitation of his estranged wife, they told a judge today [6/4/2009].  Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk scheduled a Jan. 19 start for jury selection in the television entrepreneur's murder trial.  He's accused in the Feb. 12 killing of Aasiya Zubair Hassan, 37, in the Orchard Park TV studio where they both worked.

Man accused of beheading wife to use psychiatric defense.  A man accused of beheading his wife at the television station they founded to counter stereotypes of Muslims is likely to claim emotional distress was behind the killing in hopes of avoiding a murder conviction.

Judge rejects planned defense, delays in beheading case.  The judge in Muzzammil S. "Mo" Hassan's murder case today barred his new attorney from using an emotional-disturbance defense and said he would only grant the jailed businessman further delays in his trial based solely "in the interests of justice."

Religion not a factor in wife beheading, judge rules.  The founder of an Islam-oriented television station who is accused of beheading his wife is due in a Buffalo courtroom for proceedings in advance of his murder trial.

Muslim Beheads Wife, Claims Victim Status.  In February 2009, Aasiya Z. Hassan, a 37-year-old Muslim woman, was found decapitated in Orchard Park, N.Y., a village near Buffalo.  Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, admits that he beheaded his wife.  Yet now, in a bizarre turn in the case, Muzzammil Hassan has claimed that he was the real victim in the case, driven to murder his wife after enduring years of her emotional and physical abuse.  The case stands as a classic example of the universal tendency on the part of Islamic supemacists and jihadists to blame everyone but themselves for what they have done.

'Battered spouse' defense allowed in beheading trial.  After waiting 1½ years for cable executive Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan to face murder charges in the stabbing and beheading of his wife, prosecutors suffered a blow Friday [9/3/2010] when a judge ruled that the defense can introduce evidence of "battered spouse syndrome."

Lawyers to meet in advance of wife beheading trial.  Attorneys are scheduled to meet for a final time before the founder of a Muslim-oriented television station goes on trial on charges he beheaded his estranged wife inside the station's New York studios.

Charged with beheading wife, NY man to claim abuse.  With his second-degree murder trial set to start, the question for jurors may be less about whether Hassan killed Aasiya Zubair Hassan, 37, after she filed for divorce than about why.

Beheading trial opens in New York for TV executive.  A prosecutor has said a TV executive accused of beheading his wife stabbed her 40 times before completing his "final act of domination and control".  A jury in New York state was told that Muzzammil Hassan had killed Aasiya Hassan, whose body was found at a TV station, because she filed for divorce.

Grisly murder trial opens for man accused of beheading his wife.  The long-awaited trial of a Pakistani American who is accused of beheading his wife is underway in Buffalo, N..Y., with prosecutors describing a grisly murder by a controlling spouse and the defense arguing that the suspect is an abused husband who snapped, WGRZ reports.

Decapitation murder trial underway in Buffalo, NY courtroom.  The murder of Aasiya HASSAN at the hands of her husband is as sadly ironic as it is gruesome.  The charge of second degree murder is as telling as the scarcity of national media coverage of this trial.  And the current legal antics that are being played by the defendant, despite being seemingly convoluted on the surface, just might be as craftily and cunningly planned as his alleged actions on the evening of the murder.  The murder trial of Muzzammil Hassan promises to have far greater impact to our criminal justice system than the more infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial in the mid-1990's, although don't count on it being depicted in that fashion anywhere in the national media.

Beheading suspect: Wife had my unconditional love.  A man accused of beheading his wife after she demanded a divorce told a jury in upstate New York that he had given her "unconditional love" during their marriage.

Exec of Muslim TV station found guilty of beheading wife.  Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan never denied that he killed Aasiya Hassan inside the suburban Buffalo station the couple established to promote cultural understanding.

The Editor says...
We understand your culture all too well, Mo.

One guy named Mo.  Hassan represented himself at trial.  CBS News reports that he concluded his two-hour long closing argument with:  "I don't blame my wife."  Hassan was found guilty of second degree murder; sentencing has been set for March 9.  Time in prison is too good for this guy.  Having considered the evidence, one juror commented:  "I hope he rots in hell."

NPR Insists Buffalo Beheading Has No Islamic Overtones.  Almost the entire media skipped this chilling honor-killing verdict from Arizona on Tuesday, from Reuters:  "An Arizona jury on Tuesday found an Iraqi immigrant guilty of second-degree murder for running down his daughter with a Jeep because she had become too Westernized."  Faleh Almaleki killed his daughter Noor in October 2009 because she spurned his arranged marriage and was living with her boyfriend.  Apparently, to report this is to be "Islamophobic."

New York TV exec gets 25 years to life for wife's beheading.  A former television executive was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison Wednesday [3/9/2011] for the beheading death of his wife.  After an hour of deliberation, an upstate New York jury convicted Muzzammil "Mo" Hassan of second-degree murder last month after a three-week trial.

The latest:
Verizon drops Muslim cable channel a year after owner beheaded his wife at TV studio.  A Muslim cable channel has been dropped by Verizon a year after the owner of the station was given life in prison for beheading his wife at their TV studio.  Bridges TV will go off air on March 14, almost a year to the day after the channel's owner Muzzammil Hassan, 47, was jailed for the brutal murder of his wife Aasiya, who was also the station manager.

Muslim Acts of Beheading in the West.  The gruesome murder yesterday of a soldier outside London by a Muslim convert, Michael Adebolajo, brings to mind that throat slitting and beheading are Islamically sanctioned forms of execution.  Although these occur particularly often in the course of family-related crimes — think, for example, of the case of Aasiya Hassan in suburban Buffalo, N.Y., killed by her husband in 2009, stabbed with two hunting knives more than forty times in the face, back and chest, then beheaded — this monstrous form of violence is also used in non-family instances.



Afghan diplomat Mohammed Fagirad charged in all-day wife beating.  An Afghan diplomat was charged Friday [2/13/2009] with beating his wife "like a dog" for more than 15 hours in their Queens home, prosecutors said.  Mohammed Fagirad, 30, a vice consul at the Afghanistan Consulate, brutalized his wife inside their Flushing home from about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday until nearly midnight, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.  During the attack, Fagirad bit, slapped, choked and beat the 22-year-old woman with a belt, pushed her down a flight of stairs and sat on her chest, prosecutors said.

Arab-Israeli women slaughtered in the name of the family.  The Abu Ghanem clan has lost another one of its women, the 10th in eight years to be killed for supposedly breaching the family's "honour".  The latest victim is Dalia Abu Ghanem, a 16-year-old mother of one, who vanished several weeks ago after an argument with her family.  It's the most recent in a horrific series of "honour killings" that has infested the Abu Ghanem clan of Juarish, an Arab neighbourhood on the outskirts of Ramla, a blue-collar city of 64,000 south of Tel Aviv.

President Obama Believes He Can Charm the Barbarians.  America's first (half) African-American president, whose first order of business was to reach out to the Muslim world on Al-Arabiya, has said he will actively negotiate with the Iranians, Afghans, Pakistanis, and Saudis.  I wish him well.  But I also fear for him and hope he reads what I have to say.  He must understand that he will be dealing with barbarians.  Like all good liberals, he may not understand what that means.  But what word other than "barbaric" describes the systematic incitement to violence that takes place in mosques and on television and which has led to mob rampages and episodes of "wilding" against Muslim girls and women who are group-groped, gang raped, kidnapped into sexual slavery, set on fire, buried alive, blinded by acid for daring to go to school, work as a newscaster, a hairdresser, or for a foreign company, refuse to wear a shroud, or choose to marry someone of their own choice.

Hitmen charge $100 a victim as Basra honour killings rise.  Authorities in the southern Iraqi city of Basra have admitted they are powerless to prevent 'honour killings' in the city following a 70 percent increase in religious murders during the past year.  There has been no improvement in conviction rates for these killings.  So far this year, 81 women in the city have been murdered for allegedly bringing shame on their families.  Only five people have been convicted.

Girl strangled slowly for family's honour.  A Jordanian man slowly strangled his 16-year-old married sister, using wire and the girl's scarf, after she visited a female friend because he had to "cleanse family honour". ... In Jordan, between 15 and 20 women are murdered annually in the name of "honour."  Last year around 17 such killings were recorded.

Rape as 'Resistance':  On October 31, 2008, an Egyptian female lawyer by the name of Nagla Al-Imam suggested on the Arab TV channel "Al-Arabiya" that Arab men should sexually harass Israeli women, stating:  "Leave the land so we won't rape you."  She then argued that Israeli young girls and women are fair game for all Arab men and that there is nothing wrong in using this kind of threat as a form of resistance.

Situating Honorcide:  The subject of "honor killings" is gradually becoming a matter of public controversy these days.  The incidence of these crimes appears to be rising although the response to them is ambiguous and vacillating.  There is little doubt that something alarming is happening — and has been happening for a long while — and that what we are really witnessing is a form of culture-specific violent behavior.  But the general tendency among Muslim spokespeople and social activists is to average out these tragic events as part of a garden variety social phenomenon that is statistically inevitable.

Girl set alight for wearing lipstick.  An 11-year-old girl has been set on fire by a relative in India's northern city of Jaipur for wearing lipstick and being inappropriately dressed.  Police say the girl suffered burns over 90 percent of her body and her chances of survival are bleak.  They've arrested her great uncle who allegedly poured kerosene on the girl and set her alight yesterday.  Investigators say the 55-year-old man, a conservative Muslim, told the police he was enraged at the girl wearing lipstick and being scantily dressed.  But relatives have accused the man of trying to molest the girl and setting her on fire when she objected.

Woman murdered in 'honour killing'.  A Jordanian man has murdered his sister for allegedly leaving home without permission, a security official said today.  "The crime took place in the (southern) province of Aqaba four days ago.  The man claimed that he killed his sister to cleanse his family's honour," the official said.  The official refused to elaborate "because the authorities are still investigating the killing".  In Jordan, between 15 and 20 women are murdered annually in the name of "honour".  Last year 17 such killings were recorded.

Women are the Losers When We Concede to the Muslim Hardliners.  It is extraordinary that a government which has made such a fetish of its commitment to equality should be creating a legal system which enshrines open discrimination against women.  For, like the rest of Islamic culture, sharia is profoundly misogynistic with women treated as second-class citizens in everything from child custody to inheritance.  Thanks to political correctness, there has been a reluctance to tackle the oppression of women by Muslim men.

Somali woman executed by stoning.  A woman in Somalia has been stoned to death after an Islamic Sharia law court found her guilty of adultery.  The woman was buried up to her neck and then pelted to death with stones in front of a large crowd in Kismayo.

Raped girl, 13, stoned to death.  A 13-year-old girl who said she had been raped was stoned to death in Somalia after being accused of adultery by Islamic militants, a human rights group said.  Dozens of men stoned Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow to death on October 27 in a stadium packed with 1,000 spectators in the southern port city of Kismayo, Amnesty International and Somali media reported, citing witnesses.

Stoning victim 'begged for mercy'.  A young woman recently stoned to death in Somalia first pleaded for her life, a witness has told the BBC.  "Don't kill me, don't kill me," she said, according to the man who wanted to remain anonymous.  A few minutes later, more than 50 men threw stones.  Human rights group Amnesty International says the victim was a 13-year-old girl who had been raped.

A war of words over honour killings.  In its initial poster seeking fugitive Texas cab driver Yasser Abdel Said — sought for the double homicide of his teenaged daughters — the bureau said he disapproved of their dating non-Muslim boys and stated that they were murdered "due to an 'Honour Killing.'  Though family members speculated that the father's Islamic belief motivated the crime, the use of the phrase "honour killing" incensed the local Muslim-American community, who argued that the accused's religion should not be linked to the double homicide, which left his two daughters dead in the back of his taxi.  After a public outcry, the FBI struck the offending words three weeks ago.

Who Is Afraid to Say "Honor Killing"?  The FBI removed all mention of the controversial term "honor killing" from the wanted poster of a double-murder suspect after FOXNews.com ran a story announcing the use of the term.  Yasser Abdel Said, wanted for the murder of his two daughters, has eluded authorities for almost a year. ... According to family members, Said felt he was compelled to kill his daughters because they had disgraced the family by dating non-Muslims and acting too "Western."

Pakistani newlyweds live in fear of honour killing.  Pervez Chachar and his young wife live in the police headquarters in the Pakistani city of Karachi.  Their crime?  They fell in love and married without their families' permission.  The newlyweds dare not venture out of the police station as they fear their families will hunt them down and kill them.

13-year-old female suicide bomber kills four guards.  A 13-year-old girl blew herself up at a checkpoint in central Iraq on Monday [11/10/2008], killing four Sunni guards and wounding at least 15 civilians, a military and a medical official said. ... Since the beginning of the year in Iraq more than 30 women have committed suicide compared with only eight in 2007.

'Mother' of Iraqi women bomber network arrested.  A woman accused of helping recruit dozens of female suicide bombers looked into the camera and described the process:  trolling society for likely candidates and then patiently converting the women from troubled souls into deadly attackers.

'Mum' had 80 women raped for suicide missions.  A woman suspected of recruiting more than 80 female suicide bombers has confessed to organising their rapes so she could later convince them that martyrdom was the only way to escape the shame.  Samira Jassam, 51, was arrested by Iraqi police and confessed to recruiting the women and orchestrating dozens of attacks.

Laura Bush Condemns Taliban Attack on Schoolgirls.  Laura Bush, broadening her reach as a foreign policy spokeswoman for the Bush administration, condemned the Taliban on Thursday as "cowardly and shameful" for this week's attack on eight Afghan schoolgirls who were doused with acid.

Taliban Blamed for Acid Attack on Afghan Schoolgirls.  No students showed up at Mirwais Mena girls' school in the Taliban's spiritual birthplace the morning after it happened.  A day earlier, men on motorcycles attacked 15 girls and teachers with acid.  The men squirted the acid from water bottles onto three groups of students and teachers walking to school Wednesday [11/12/2008], principal Mehmood Qaderi said.  Some of the girls have burns only on their school uniforms but others will have scars on their faces.

Afghan acid attack victim vows to continue schooling.  A victim of an acid attack on schoolgirls in Afghanistan says she is determined to stay in school even if that means risking death.  The girl, who gave her name as just Shamsia, was the most seriously injured of a group of girls attacked outside their school by unidentified men in the southern city of Kandahar on Wednesday [11/12/2008].

5 buried alive 'tradition' — Pakistani pol.  A Pakistani lawmaker defended a decision by northwestern tribesmen to bury five women alive because they wanted to choose their own husbands, telling stunned members of Parliament to spare him their outrage.  "These are centuries-old traditions, and I will continue to defend them," Israr Ullah Zehri, who represents Baluchistan province, told The Associated Press Saturday [8/30/2008].  "Only those who indulge in immoral acts should be afraid."

This is apparently the same incident, with the death toll revised downward...
Three teenagers buried alive in 'honour killings'.  Three teenage girls who planned to defy their families and marry men of their choice were buried alive in "honour killings".  Now the Pakistani Government has been forced to order an inquiry, six weeks after the crimes.

Saudi cleric urges Muslim women to cover up all but one eye.  Saudi cleric Sheikh Mohammed al-Habadan has declared that a Muslim veil, or hijab, that covers all but the eyes encourages women to use eye make-up to look seductive, the BBC reported Friday.  Al-Habadan has called on Saudi women to wear a full veil, or niqab, which covers the entire face, including one eye.  The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies.

Nigerian man to divorce 82 wives.  A Nigerian religious leader with 86 wives has accepted an Islamic decree ordering him to divorce all but four of them, local authorities say.  A spokesman for the emir of Bida told the BBC that Mohammadu Bello Abubakar, 84, agreed on Saturday [8/30/2008] to comply with the decree.

Disembowelled, then torn apart:  The price of daring to teach girls.  The gunmen came at night to drag Mohammed Halim away from his home, in front of his crying children and his wife begging for mercy.  The 46-year-old schoolteacher tried to reassure his family that he would return safely.  But his life was over, he was part-disembowelled and then torn apart with his arms and legs tied to motorbikes, the remains put on display as a warning to others against defying Taliban orders to stop educating girls.

The Sham of Women's Rights Under the Shari'a.  The United Kingdom is on taking a first step toward a parallel legal system for Muslims, and garnering applause for it.  Both the Guardian and the Telegraph have recently lauded a new Muslim marriage contract drawn up by a group of British Muslim organizations as a breakthrough in Muslim women's rights in the UK. … But if this new marriage contract was required to give Muslim women equal rights, how can these rights have already been enshrined in the shari'a?

Purge on Muslim clerics who turn a blind eye to the abuse of women.  Muslim spiritual leaders could be denounced publicly by their own community as part of a campaign to expose imams whose silence on domestic abuse is leading to women being burnt, lashed and raped in the name of Islam.  Muslim scholars are to present the Government with the names of imams who are alleged by members of their own communities to have refused to help abused women.  Imams are also accused of refusing to speak out against domestic abuse in their sermons because they fear losing their clerical salaries and being sacked for broaching a "taboo" subject.

Honor Killings Among the Palestinians:  If a woman brings shame to the family — through allegations of premarital or extramarital sex, by refusing an arranged marriage, or attempting to obtain a divorce — her male relatives are bound by duty and culture to murder her.

Father Kills Daughter; Doubted Virginity.  A Jordanian man fatally shot his 17-year-old daughter whom he suspected of having sex despite a medical exam that proved her chastity, an official said Thursday.  The man surrendered to police hours after the killing, saying he had done it for family honor.

Sister shot six times in alleged 'honour' killing.  A 26-year-old Jordanian man was charged with murder today [8/1/2008] after his 23-year-old sister was shot dead in an apparent "honour" killing.  The unnamed suspect allegedly shot his sister six times last night in the Nqeira area south of the capital Amman, a security official said.

Muslims "Honor" Family by Killing Women:  In Pakistan and other predominantly Muslim countries, the phrase "family values" has a somewhat different meaning than it does in civilized countries.  In the United States and Canada, for instance, when we refer to family values we are speaking of protecting the family and its members.  To Muslims, an important part of family values involves murdering female members of the family.  It is called "honor" killing.

Honor Killings:  Made in the USA.  They have dishonored our shores for quite some time and more keep coming our way.  I am talking about honor killings in North America.  In The Death of Feminism, I write about honor murders in Missouri, Ohio, and in parts of New Jersey, New York, and Canada which took place during the last quarter-century.  Earlier this month, an Egyptian Arab Muslim father in Dallas, Texas allegedly shot his two beautiful teenage daughters to death because he disapproved of their American-style ways.

Police Say Georgia Man Killed Own Daughter to Protect Family Honor.  The 25-year-old victim, Sandeela Kanwal, was wed in Pakistan in an arranged marriage.  Police said Kanwal hadn't seen her husband, who lives in Chicago, for months.  According to police, there was "friction between father and victim" in the weeks leading up to the killing.

Saudi ban on woman drivers may be eroding.  Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that bans all women — Saudi and foreign — from driving.  The prohibition forces families to hire live-in drivers, and women who cannot afford the $300-$400 a month for a driver must rely on male relatives to drive them to work, school, shopping or the doctor.

Court to consider divorce for 8-year-old girl.  A Saudi court will next month hear a plea for divorce from an eight-year-old girl married off by her father to a man in his fifties, the Arabic-language daily Al-Watan reported today [8/24/2008].

A Response to Feminists on the Violent Oppression of Women in Islam.  As recently as December 10, a Muslim teenager was strangled by her father for refusing to wear a hijab without a protest from the American feminist movement.  And that is only one of many crimes committed in the name of Islam against Muslim women over which the feminist movement continues to be silent.  On New Year's Day, Amina Said, 18, and her sister Sarah, 17, were shot dead in Irving, Texas.  Police are searching for their father, Yaser Abdel Said, on a warrant for capital murder.  The girls' great aunt, Gail Gartrell, told reporters, "This was an honor killing."  Apparently Yaser Said murdered his daughters because they had non-Muslim boyfriends.

"Honor Killing" Dad Secretly Taped Girls.  On New Year's Day 2008, two Texas teenagers Amina and Sarah Said were shot dead, their bloodied bodies left in a taxi cab.  The alleged shooter:  their father Yaser Said.  In fact, Sarah appears to identify her Dad as the murderer in a 9-11 call — her dying words.

Update:
Texas 'honor killing' suspect Yaser Said could be hiding in NYC, private investigator says.  The Egyptian-born cab driver suspected in the 2008 "honor killing" of his two daughters in Texas because they were dating non-Muslim boys may be working at his old trade in New York, according to a private investigator who has tracked him.  Yaser Said fled his Dallas-area home after allegedly shooting daughters Amina, 18, and Sarah Said, 17, on New Year's Day in 2008 and is now on the FBI's list of most-wanted fugitives.

Detective calls on feds to take over 'honor killing' investigation.  A private investigator who probed the 2008 case of a Texas taxi driver who allegedly murdered his daughters in an "honor killing" has appealed to the Department of Justice and other federal agencies to take over the investigation, saying local authorities have hopelessly botched the investigation.

This is a "religion of peace"?  Really?
'Honor' killing comes to the US.  No one knows just how many Muslim girls and women are murdered each year in the name of family "honor," since their deaths frequently go unreported and unpunished.  The cases that do come to light are ghastly.  "Women and young girls are set ablaze, strangled, shot at, clubbed, stabbed, tortured, axed, or stoned to death," a United Nations report noted in 2004.  "Their bodies are found mutilated with their throat slit, or they are chopped into pieces and thrown in a ditch."

Islamic Shariah Law Killings On Rise In U.S..  Fox News aired a special on July 26 dealing with the rise of so-called Muslim honor killings in America.  The special described several cases involving Muslim teenage girls who were killed by their fathers because they were dating non-Muslim boys — or objected to arranged marriages.

Jihad Comes to Dallas.  Amina and Sarah Said were murdered in Irving, Texas, an area with a large Muslim population that is also known to some experts as a place where Hezbollah and the Muslim Brotherhood may be active.

Murderous Mothers:  Texas-born Patricia ("Tissie") Said, formerly of the Owens family, is the mother who lured her two teenage daughters, Sarah and Amina, to their deaths at the hands of their own father this past New Years Day in Dallas.  How can a mother do such a thing?

The Case of the Missing Honor Killing:  I'm glad that America's Most Wanted chose to dramatize the honor killing of Sarah and Amina Said in Dallas on Jan 1, 2008 by their father Yaser Abdul Said, who has been missing ever since.  I hope the program helps aid in his capture.  I applaud on-camera narrator John Walsh, who has turned his own grief at the loss of his child into something positive for so many others.  However, the dramatization was oddly, perhaps even purposefully misleading.

How Honor Murderers Become Victims.  Muslims have never launched a campaign against their own racism.  The Arab Muslim slave trade continues to this day in many forms, both in the Middle East and in the West, especially among United Nations diplomats who are posted here.  Muslim employers in Saudi Arabia are not apologizing to their Philippina servants whom they imprison and routinely force to work around the clock as domestics and sex slaves.

When love is a crime:  the horror of Britain's 'honour' killings.  Police say 12 or 13 Britons — mainly women but very occasionally men — are the victims of honour killings each year.  Activists say the figure dramatically understates the true number and police agree:  they are reviewing 117 cases of women who died in mysterious circumstances in the past 15 years, many of which are thought to have been honour killings.

Facing jail:  Violent husband who beat Muslim 'slave' bride 'every day' after arranged marriage.  A husband who constantly beat up his young wife and treated her as a 'slave' has been told he will be jailed.  Sania Bibi, 20, arrived in Britain from Pakistan following an arranged marriage to Haroon Akhtar and was forced to work 17-hour days cooking, cleaning and washing clothes for his family.

A Cutting Tradition.  When a girl is taken — usually by her mother — to a free circumcision event held each spring in Bandung, Indonesia, she is handed over to a small group of women who, swiftly and yet with apparent affection, cut off a small piece of her genitals. … Female genital cutting — commonly identified among international human rights groups as female genital mutilation — has been outlawed in 15 African countries.  Many industrialized countries also have similar laws.

Oslo couple charged with mutilating their daughters.  The mother and father of five daughters born and reared in Norway have been charged in what's considered the first enforcement and test of the country's new law against genital mutilation.  The couple is originally from Gambia but both partners are now Norwegian citizens.  They have a total of six daughters, and five of the six have been subjected to genital mutilation, according to Hanne Kristin Rohde of the Oslo Police District.

Ruth Rendell speaks out against female genital mutilation.  Female genital mutilation has been practised for centuries, principally in the Horn of Africa; the UN estimates 6,000 young girls are subjected to it every day, in 28 countries.  Those under the age of 15 are "cut", their genitalia maimed or even removed, and the wound sewn up.  The practice is believed to encourage chastity and prevent sexual pleasure, and many parents still believe it is the only way their daughters will be able to find good husbands.

A right to asylum?  Growing up in the West African nation of Mali, Alima Traore assumed that girls everywhere had to undergo the procedure.  "In my country, it is usually an old lady" who performs the crude surgery, the 29-year-old woman said during an interview in her attorney's Rockville office.  "They have a traditional knife for it.  They cut your intimate parts.  This knife is used for many girls."

Police charge woman with female genital mutilation of 10 month old.  A LaGrange [Georgia] woman has been arrested and charged with the female genital mutilation of her 10-month-old baby and second-degree cruelty to children.

For Kurdish Girls, a Painful Ancient Ritual.  As the midwife sliced off part of Sheelan's genitals, the girl let out a high-pitched wail heard throughout the neighborhood.  As she carried the sobbing child back home, Sheelan's mother smiled with pride.  "This is the practice of the Kurdish people for as long as anyone can remember," said the mother, Aisha Hameed, 30, a housewife in this ethnically mixed town about 100 miles north of Baghdad.  "We don't know why we do it, but we will never stop because Islam and our elders require it."  Kurdistan is the only known part of Iraq — and one of the few places in the world — where female circumcision is widespread.

The Myths about Female Genital Mutilation.  Today, after 30 years of widely unsuccessful efforts for an end of the torturing mutilations, the time is overripe to identify, name and overcome all the fatal myths, lies and fundamental errors which continue to be spread even by so-called scientists and even most "activists".  To reveal all those myths is about much more than being right or wrong; it's about explaining WHY most strategies in the fight to end FGM until now are predestined to fail — and to be not much more than a waste of money, time, energy and resources — while millions of little girls continue to be maimed every year.  It's about going to the roots and finding out the baleful mechanisms that lead to the continuation of this violent practice.

Embracing Female Genital Mutilation.  There is no limit to the depravity of the cultists who worship at the altar of multiculturalism.  100 to 140 million girls and women around the world have been subjected to genital mutilation.  And now, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) is embracing this barbaric expression of misogyny in the name of cultural sensitivity and immigrant outreach.

Sanctioning Barbarity:  Female genital mutilation is not the only horrific Islamic custom that is coming West.  The number of honor killings is skyrocketing in Europe and America.  It has been reported that thousands of girls in the United Kingdom have been mutilated and the authorities can't (or won't) stop it.  To the credit of the U.K. media, at least they have been having a public discussion about it.  It's happening here, but to speak of it publicly would insult CAIR.

The Subjection of Islamic Women and the fecklessness of American feminism.  The subjection of women in Muslim societies — especially in Arab nations and in Iran — is today very much in the public eye.  Accounts of lashings, stonings, and honor killings are regularly in the news, and searing memoirs by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Azar Nafisi have become major best-sellers.  One might expect that by now American feminist groups would be organizing protests against such glaring injustices, joining forces with the valiant Muslim women who are working to change their societies.  This is not happening.

Mohammed and his new 11-year-old wife
Religion of Peace update:  The image hardly fits our idea of the happy couple's wedding picture — but this haunting photograph taken in Afghanistan graphically captures life for millions of girls given in marriage while under age.  It shows Mohammed, 40, with his new 11-year-old wife, Ghulam.

Harems Pay Off for Muslims.  Hundreds of [Toronto area] Muslim men in polygamous marriages — some with a harem of wives — are receiving welfare and social benefits for each of their spouses, thanks to the city and province, Muslim leaders say.  Mumtaz Ali, president of the Canadian Society of Muslims, said wives in polygamous marriages are recognized as spouses under the Ontario Family Law Act, providing they were legally married under Muslim laws abroad.

The Editor asks...
What about the Muslims with 11-year-old wives?  Will that be allowed, too?

Mosque Child Abuse in America.  Not only does Al-Farooq provide materials by convicted Islamic terrorists to their worshippers, they practice polygamy (per statements made by Al Farooq worshippers) as allowed under Sharia law, which also advocates children to be taken as 'child brides' married to older men.  One need only research how often this occurs in Somalia.

Liberals and Child Brides:  There is a debate going on in the Saudi press about the practice of marrying off young girls to men who are decades older.  In March, a Saudi judge declined to annul the marriage of 8-year-old girl who was married to a 47-year-old man.  The child's mother had petitioned the court for redress, as she opposed the marriage.  The girl's father, the wife alleged, had sold the third-grader to a close friend in payment of a debt.

Saudis 'to regulate' child brides.  Saudi Arabia says it plans to start regulating the marriage of young girls, amid controversy over a union between a 60-year-old man and a girl of eight.  A court in Unaiza upheld the marriage on condition the groom does not have sex with her until she reaches puberty.

11-year-old marries 10-year-old cousin.  An 11-year-old boy has married his 10-year-old cousin in the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Mohammed al-Rashidi and his unidentified cousin will seal the marriage they contracted under the sharia laws of Islam and move in together after a ceremony to take place in the summer, Al-Shams newspaper reports today.

There is nothing "ultra-conservative" about arranging for your grandchildren to marry each other.

Muslim cleric marries 12 year old.  An Indonesian child protection agency is investigating reports of a marriage between a Muslim cleric and a 12-year-old girl, the Jakarta Post newspaper reported on Sunday.  The newspaper said the 43-year-old cleric from Central Java allegedly married the minor girl with her parents' consent in August and planned to marry two more girls, aged seven and nine.

10-year-old girls can marry'.  Saudi Arabia's senior-most cleric said girls as young as 10 years old can be married, local media reported on Wednesday.  The powerful Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz al-Sheikh said in a speech late on Monday that Islamic Sharia law allows the practice of pre-teen girls getting married, and that critics of the practice were doing the girls "an injustice", reports said.

Islamists Fight Yemen Law Banning Child Marriage.  She was 2 years old when her father promised her in marriage to a man in his 30s.  It was a swap, so the father could marry the man's sister without paying the obligatory bride-price.  At age 9, the girl was put on a sack of rice to appear taller next to the bridegroom in the wedding picture.  At 11, she was taken to her husband's house to live.  Despite promising not to consummate the marriage before she reached puberty, he tied her to a bed, stuffed a rag in her mouth and raped her, she says.

Saudi court tells girl aged eight she cannot divorce 58-year-old husband.  A Saudi court has rejected a plea to divorce an eight-year-old girl married off by her father to a man who is 58, saying the case should wait until the girl reaches puberty. ... "She doesn't know yet that she has been married," [Lawyer Abdullar] Jtili said then of the girl who was about to begin her fourth year at primary school.

Britain clears the way for polygamy benefits.  Bigamy is outlawed in Britain, but authorities have never prosecuted Muslim men who had legally married more than one woman abroad and continued to live with them after immigrating.  Shariah permits men to have up to four wives at one time.

I do, I do, I do, I do  There has been an angry, even hysterical reaction to the revelation that there are a number of polygamous families in Canada where Muslim men are married to up to four wives.  Immigration law is fluid on the issue, with some experts arguing that immigrants already in such relationships may continue them in Canada. … And thus the inevitable.  I predict that polygamy will be legal and accepted in this country within five years.

Murder in the Family:  Honor Killings in America.  Zein Isa, a Palestinian terrorist who lived in St. Louis, was convicted of killing his daughter Palestina in 1989.  Investigators say he was furious she had a black boyfriend, went to a school dance and got a job at Wendy's.  Palestina's mother held her down as Isa plunged a 9-inch knife into his daughter's chest, actions the FBI picked up on a microphone as they investigated Isa for his terrorist ties.

The Islamist war on Muslim women.  The "Qatif girl" won a reprieve last week.  On Dec. 17, Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah pardoned the young woman, who was sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in prison after she pressed charges against seven men who had raped her and a male acquaintance in 2006. … But for every "Qatif girl" or Nazanin who is saved, there are far too many other Muslim girls and women for whom deliverance never comes.

Saudi punishes gang rape victim with 200 lashes.  A court in the ultra-conservative kingdom of Saudi Arabia is punishing a female victim of gang rape with 200 lashes and six months in jail, a newspaper reported on Thursday [11/15/2007].  The 19-year-old woman — whose six armed attackers have been sentenced to jail terms — was initially ordered to undergo 90 lashes for "being in the car of an unrelated male at the time of the rape," the Arab News reported.

[Bias alert:  There's nothing "ultra-conservative" about punishing a woman for being raped.]

Update:
Saudi rape victim's husband blames judge for punishment.  The husband of a Saudi rape victim sentenced to 200 lashes and six months in prison said his wife is "a crushed human being," but blamed a judge — not the Saudi judicial system — for treating her as a criminal.

Islam vs. Women — Where are the Feminists?  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, U.S. feminists remain silent and U.S. leaders continue in their attempts to make us believe that Islam truly is a "peaceful" religion — just misunderstood.

Imam E-Date from Hell:  A Wall Street stockbroker fears for her life after she rebuffed a Brooklyn imam she met on a Muslim dating Web site.  In an explosive $50 million lawsuit that blows the lid off the wacky world of Muslim dating in New York, Cherine Allaithy alleges the religious leader promised he would make her one of four future wives and boasted of a cousin in al Qaeda.  When she dumped him, he trashed her reputation in the Arab press.

Woman shot in honour killing a virgin.  Police said they had charged a Jordanian with premeditated murder after his 23-year-old sister and her boyfriend were shot dead in an apparent "honour killing".  "The suspect shot his sister four times and her Syrian shepherd boyfriend six times when he caught them (together) red-handed early on Sunday" in the eastern Shumari natural reserve near the desert city of Azraq, a spokesman said.  "He turned himself in shortly after the crime, and forensic tests proved that his sister was still a virgin when she was murdered."

Brother praised for 'honor killing' attempt.  A 19-year-old Israeli Arab woman has survived an attempted "honor killing" by her brother on Tuesday in the Arab village of Na'ura, near Afula, after two bullets fired at her head shattered on impact, failing to penetrate her skull.  Paramedics said the girl survived by playing dead, leading her brother to stop shooting and kicking her. … The 24-year-old suspect was warmly praised by some members of his family for the attempted murder.  He is in police custody.

'Honor Killing' Motive for Slain Sisters?  It's been one week since two teen sisters were found shot to death inside a cab outside a Texas hotel, and their father, who police say is the sole suspect in the New Year's Day killings, remains at large.  Authorities tell ABC News that the investigation so far has produced few solid leads as to Yaser Abdel Said's whereabouts, and they fear he may have fled the country, perhaps even to his native Egypt.

Al-Qaida Uses Women As Suicide Attackers.  Three female suicide bombers blew themselves up within a few weeks late last year in Iraq, killing or wounding dozens — a tactic that goes against religious taboos on involving women in fighting and could indicate insurgents are growing increasingly desperate.

Love, blackmail and rape — how al-Qaeda grooms women as 'perfect weapons'.  A woman pretending to be pregnant walks up to a hospital in one of Iraq's most dangerous regions and blows herself up.  Minutes later a man, also laden with explosives, attacks the rescue workers who rushed to the scene in Diyala province, north of Baghdad.  Thirty-two people are killed and 52 wounded.

Two Women Stoned:  Feminists Mum.  We continue to be stunned but not surprised by the silence of these feminists who have questioned the authenticity of our concern for Muslim women oppressed by the laws of Islam.  The feminists who recently complained that the media has falsely represented them as indifferent to the plight of Muslim women have so far been conspicuously indifferent to the plight of Zohreh and Azar.

Women stopped from voting in Pakistan.  Voting stopped at women-only polling stations in parts of northwest Pakistan after elders decided that women should not cast ballots, police and officials said. … Men and women vote at separate locations throughout Pakistan, an Islamic republic.

Using the Disabled for the Jihad.  For a while it looked as if the US military's surge was pacifying Baghdad.  Now it seems al-Qaida may have found depraved ways around new security measures — including female "suicide" bombers, recruited from mental hospitals.

Judge orders man's leg cut off:  A Muslim court in northern Nigeria has ordered that a 45-year-old man's leg be amputated as punishment for doing the same to his wife.  The Upper Sharia in the town of Bauchi made the order against Adamu Hussaini Maidoya, who cut off the right leg of his wife, Amina.  He accused her of infidelity, after "over exposing" herself to a doctor to get an injection.

A question of honour:  Police say 17,000 women are victims every year.  Ministers are stepping up the fight against so-called 'honour' crime and forced marriages.  Detectives say official statistics are 'merely the tip of the iceberg' of this phenomenon.

US:  Iraqi Women Bomber Trainer Caught.  The U.S. military announced the capture Saturday [3/1/2008] of an insurgent leader who was recruiting and training women, including his wife, to wrap themselves in explosives and blow themselves up — the latest sign that al-Qaida in Iraq plans to keep using women to carry out suicide attacks.

It's time to take a stand against Islam and Sharia.  Picture this, says Maryam Namazie:  "A child is swathed in cloth from head to toe every day.  Everything but her face and hands are covered for fear that a man might find her attractive.  At school she learns that she is worth less than a boy.  She is not allowed to dance or swim or feel the sun on her skin or the wind in her hair.  This is clearly unacceptable, yet it is accepted when it is done in the name of religion."

Tortured and murdered … by her father.  The 20-year-old was raped and garrotted during an ordeal lasting more than two-and-a-half hours at her family home in south London last year after falling in love with a man her family thought was unsuitable.  Her body was later found in a suitcase beneath a house in Birmingham, central England.  Members of her family and several family friends had plotted her murder.

Saudi women 'kept in childhood'.  Saudi women are being kept in perpetual childhood so male relatives can exercise "guardianship" over them, the Human Rights Watch group has said.  The New York-based group says Saudi women have to obtain permission from male relatives to work, travel, study, marry or even receive health care.

Girl of 8 seeking divorce.  An eight-year-old girl has sought the help of a judge to seek a divorce after two months of forced marriage to a 30-year-old man in Yemen, said press reports on Sunday [4/13/2008].  Nojoud Muhammad Nasser lodged a compliant at a court in the capital, Sana'a, last week against her father who forced her to marry a man 22 years her senior, and asked the judge to secure her divorce.

Update:
Yemeni girl, 8, gets divorce after forced marriage.  Her former husband, 28-year-old Faez Ali Thameur, said he married the child "with her consent and that of her parents" but that he did not object to her divorce petition.  In response to a question from Judge Mohammed al-Qadhi, he acknowledged that the "marriage was consummated, but I did not beat her."

Honour killing's Aussie link:  Mortally wounded and bleeding profusely, Pela Atroshi covered her head with her hands, pleading "please don't shoot me, please don't shoot me".  As her sister and her mother screamed, her uncle Rezkar Atroshi raised his gun and killed her.  The family's honour had been cleansed. … "Pela's uncle, the oldest son of Abdulmajid, said if any of the unmarried girls is away from home for one night, she has to be killed," Inspector Algamo said on the phone from Stockholm.

Father kills girl who fell in love with Briton.  A 17-YEAR-OLD girl has been murdered by her father in an "honour killing" after falling in love with a British soldier in Iraq, it was reported yesterday [4/27/2008].  Rand Abdel-Qader, from Basra, was killed after her family found out she had formed a friendship with a 22-year-old infantryman she knew as Paul.

Saudi man given 150 lashes for unchaperoned meeting with woman.  A Saudi Arabian man has been sentenced to eight months in prison and 150 lashes after he was caught meeting a woman without a chaperone in a coffee shop.

Militants burn down girls' school in north-west Pakistan.  'The masked men directed me to remove all the copies of Koran and then set the school on fire,' a watchman, Toti Gul, told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa.  The militants also planted homemade bombs in the school's science laboratory; however, they did not go off and were later defused by a bomb disposal squad, the watchman said.  A number of attacks on girls' schools have been reported in the past and these were believed to be carried out by pro-Taliban fighters commanded by a local radical cleric, Maulana Fazlullah.

Jordanian woman killed to save family's honor.  A man who was suspected of drowning his 22-year-old sister for having an extramarital affair was charged Monday [5/12/2008] with premeditated murder, a judicial official said.  The unidentified woman's brother beat her with the help of his family Saturday and then took her to the Dead Sea where he drowned her, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the media.

Indian village proud after double "honor killing".  Five armed men burst into the small room and courtyard at dawn, just as 21-year-old, 22-week pregnant, Sunita was drying her face on a towel.  They punched and kicked her stomach as she called out for her sleeping boyfriend "Jassa", 22-year-old Jasbir Singh, witnesses said.  When he woke, both were dragged into waiting cars, driven away and strangled.

Egyptian farmer hangs, decapitates daughter in 'honour' killing.  An Egyptian farmer who suspected his 16-year-old daughter was having an affair hanged her and then beheaded her body in the southern province of Bani Soueif, it was reported Sunday [5/25/2008].  The local daily Al-Akhbar said Abdel-Samad, 46, turned himself to the police after the killing.

Honour killing claims life of six-year-old.  A six-year-old girl was killed in an arson attack on her family home by men who disapproved of a relationship her older brother was having with a teenager, a court heard today [9/19/2006].

Open Season on Jewish Women.  [Naveed Afsal] Haq's brutal attack is no ordinary crime.  It is the product of an Islamic culture that denigrates women in general and a jihadist culture that specifically seeks to destroy life.  Thus, many Islamic suicide killers will purposely target pregnant women or women with small children before they blow themselves up.

Saudis Consider Banning Women From Mecca.  Officials are considering an unprecedented proposal to ban women from performing the five Muslim prayers in the immediate vicinity of Islam's most sacred shrine in Mecca.  Some say women are already being kept away.

Women are back under wraps with Taliban vice squad.  Afghanistan's notorious Department for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which was set up by the Taliban to enforce bans on women doing anything from working to wearing nail varnish or laughing out loud, is to be recreated by the Government in Kabul.  The decision has provoked an outcry among women and human rights activists who fear a return to the days when religious police patrolled the streets, beating or arresting any woman who was not properly covered by a burka or accompanied by a male relative.

It's the end of the world as we know it, stupid!  To our tolerant Western society, it sounds harmless enough — until you realize that the Koran encourages, indeed demands, all kinds of medieval ideas which are anathema to free men and women.  Most recently, this was illustrated by the case of a 19-year-old Saudi woman who was sentenced to 200 lashes of the whip after being gang-raped by seven men. … It should be considered a sign of the great difficulty the West faces in assimilating the world's 1.2 billion Muslims into the modern community that none of them could properly be offended by the young woman's sentence without renouncing the core of their religion.  Remember:  The Middle Ages never ended; they just moved to the Middle East.

Nearly 25 percent of married women in Syria have been beaten  … according to a study by the U.N. Development Fund for Women.

Slapping a wife 'is okay'.  A Saudi judge has told a seminar on domestic violence that it is okay for a man to slap his wife for lavish spending, a local newspaper reported on Sunday.  Jeddah judge Hamad al-Razine gave the example of overspending to buy a high-end abaya, the head-to toe black shroud Saudi women have to wear in public, as justifying a smack for one's wife, Arab News said.

Making the Muslims love us.  Feminists in the United States, eager to blame fundamentalist Christians for everything, are reluctant to criticize fundamentalist Muslims for anything.  But a cursory scan of the Internet finds several sites beginning to expose the way Muslim men both here and abroad get a politically correct pass in the name of multicultural tolerance.  When all cultures are considered equal, it's difficult to criticize culturally protected traditions, even if those traditions brutalize women.

Slave-girls as sexual property in the Quran.  The Quran makes women subordinate to men in many ways.  But no women subject to the rule of Quranic law are more unfortunate than slave girls.  According to the eternal and unchanging scripture of Islam, men are permitted to treat them as sexual property regardless of their wishes, under certain specified circumstances.

Why Theo Van Gogh Was Murdered:  The filmmaker focused on the shameful abuse of Muslim women by Muslim men in Europe.

Father Kills Daughter; Doubted Virginity.  A Jordanian man fatally shot his 17-year-old daughter whom he suspected of having sex despite a medical exam that proved her chastity, an official said Thursday.  The man surrendered to police hours after the killing, saying he had done it for family honor.

Sister is stabbed to death for loving the wrong man.  A [British] businessman is facing a life sentence for stabbing his sister to death in front of his two young daughters in a so-called honor killing.  Azhar Nazir, 30, and his cousin, 17, used four knives to cut Samaira Nazir's throat and repeatedly stab her after she fell in love with an asylum-seeker from what they saw as an unsuitable caste. … The father was also charged with the murder but fled to Pakistan, where he has gone into hiding.

The first lady is wrong:  It wasn't terrorism that oppressed women in Afghanistan.  It was Islamism.  In Saudi Arabia, women are oppressed every bit as much as they were in Afghanistan.  They can't even drive cars.  Now, we've been told over and over again by the Bush administration that we are not at war with Islam.  We've been told ad nauseum what a wonderful religion it is.  President Bush even invited 50 Islamic ambassadors to the White House this week for Ramadan prayers.

Muslim Women as Human Shields:  Would any American, European or Israeli man call for his wife, mother, sister or daughter to come into a fire-fight and stand as a human shield to protect him?  The Arab Muslim Palestinians, on the other hand, think nothing of using women, children and the elderly as "human shields."

Warning on al-Qaeda's new female recruits.  European intelligence chiefs have launched a major investigation into the threat posed by female Islamic militants within the EU, whose involvement runs from logistics or propaganda activity to suicide bombing, they say.  'This phenomenon has not been really taken into account yet and we need to explore and understand it,' said one diplomatic official connected with the probe.  'It is a new strategy by al-Qaeda.'

Women demand equal opportunities — to blow themselves to smithereens.  In a bizarre demand for sexual equality, Islamic women extremists are insisting that al-Qaeda gives them the right to become suicide bombers and terrorists.  Many women have responded with a mixture of anger and dismay to online advice from Osama bin Laden's right-hand man that they should keep to being housewives.

Murderers without honour:  Leila Hussein lived her last few weeks in terror. Moving constantly from safe house to safe house, she dared to stay no longer than four days at each.  It was the price she was forced to pay after denouncing and divorcing her husband, the man she witnessed suffocate, stamp on, then stab their young daughter Rand in a brutal honour killing for which he had shown no remorse.

Allah and His Messenger's Extreme Hatred of Women: [For example] (Sura 4:43) — "Muslims, draw not near unto prayer … (if) ye have touched women … then go to high clean soil and rub your face and your hands."  (Sura 5:6) — "...if ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it."

Women:  Islam's Domestic Animals.  [In] the most hallowed speech by Muhammad, he had clearly described women as domestic animals, and instructed their husbands to beat them if they suspect that their wives' behavior are not to their satisfaction.  Please note that those were Muhammad's last decrees to Muslim husbands.  Every Muslim husband is duty bound by those instructions of Muhammad.

Malaysia city orders Muslim women not to wear bright lipstick, noisy heels.  Authorities in a northern Malaysian city have forbidden Muslim women from wearing bright lipstick and noisy high-heeled shoes to work, saying the ban will enhance their dignity and prevent them from getting raped, a news report said.

The Editor says...
I doubt if it is possible to prevent rape in a society where women are treated like animals.

The "Great Mind" of a "Wife-Beating" Author.  Within the worldwide Muslim community, there are a number of actions that most clear thinking individuals would consider barbarous towards women.  They include stonings, honor killings, clitorectomies (female circumcisions), forced clothing (hijabs, burkas, etc.), and wife-beatings.

Brother of girl killed in apparent hijab incident charged.  The brother of a Mississauga, Ont., teenager who was strangled to death in her home has been charged with first-degree murder.  Aqsa Parvez was 16 when she was strangled to death in December 2007 during what friends said was a family dispute over her reluctance to wear a hijab.

Honor Killings:  "Honor killings" are distressingly common throughout the Muslim world.  Phyllis Chesler reports that "in 1997, in Cairo Egypt, twenty-five-year-old Nora Marzouk Ahmed's honeymoon ended when her father chopped off her head and carried it down the street.  'Now,' he said, 'the family has regained its honor.'  Nora's crime?  She had eloped."

Stop Honorcide.  The idea behind this campaign is to attract attention to this problem and to prosecute honorcides to the fullest extent of the law.  We believe the most pragmatic way to achieve this goal is to classify honorcide as a hate crime.

An American 'Honor Killing'.  On July 6, police say, a Pakistani named Chaudhry Rashid strangled his 25-year-old daughter Sandeela Kanwal with a Bungee cord in her bedroom because she wanted to end her arranged marriage.  This "honor killing" came not in Pakistan, but in Jonesboro, Ga. -- a suburb 16 miles outside Atlanta.

On a less serious note...
No Women on Saudi Olympic Team.  When the delegation of Tuvalu enters the Olympic stadium in Beijing on Friday evening for what will be its debut Games, the tiny Pacific island nation of just 11,000 people will be represented by two athletes and a weightlifter — two men and one woman. … [But] Saudi Arabia, with a population of 28 million, will field a team — athletes, equestrians, swimmers, shooters and weightlifters — that doesn't include a single woman.

Iraqi father proud of daughter's 'honour killing'.  Abdel-Qader Ali claimed the 'honour killing' was supported by local police, and said his only regret was that he had not killed his daughter at birth.  Rand Abdel-Qader, who was studying English at Basra University, was stamped on, suffocated and stabbed by her father, with help from her two older brothers.

'My daughter deserved to die for falling in love'.  For Abdel-Qader Ali there is only one regret:  that he did not kill his daughter at birth.  'If I had realised then what she would become, I would have killed her the instant her mother delivered her,' he said with no trace of remorse. ... Abdel-Qader, 46, a government employee, was initially arrested but released after two hours.  Astonishingly, he said, police congratulated him on what he had done.  'They are men and know what honour is,' he said.

Barbie in a burka

It's Barbie in a burkha.  One of the world's most famous children's toys, Barbie, has been given a makeover — wearing a burkha.

What signal does Barbie's burka send?  Women forbidden by law from feeling sunlight — hey, that's a positive message for young girls.

Burka Barbie.  Sharia Law prohibits any representation of the human form, and it is quite strict about depicting Allah's other creations among the animal kingdom as well.  Fish seem to be exempt from this prohibition, for reasons that I still do not completely understand.  In any case, Islam also assumes that portraying mythical creatures, from golden idols to Kewpie people, might tempt gullible believers away from the true path.

Iranian official warns against importing Barbie doll.  A top Iranian judiciary official warned Monday against the "destructive" cultural and social consequences of importing Barbie dolls and other Western toys.  Prosecutor General Ghorban Ali Dori Najafabadi said in an official letter to Vice President Parviz Davoudi that the Western toys was a "danger" that needed to be stopped.

The Editor says...
I will concede and stipulate that Barbie generally dresses like a whore.  But here's how the problem is handled in free societies:  If you don't like Barbie, leave her on the shelf at the toy store.
