Fakhra Yunus was a
dancing girl in the red light district of Pakistan. She left
her husband after 3 years of marriage because of his abusive behavior
toward her. He came to her mother's house while she was sleeping
in May 2000 and poured acid all over her. After a decade of over a
dozen surgeries she jumped out a window and killed herself. More
than 8,500 acid attacks, forced marriages and other forms of violence
against women were reported in Pakistan in 2011. The Pakistani
government enacted a new set of laws in 2011 that explicitly
criminalized acid attacks. Given that the Muslim Pakistani passed
laws against it is it fair to blame acid attacks on Islam?
Islam demonizes women and so does play a role in the terrible
situation of women in Islamic society.

A Muslim state must [first] attack a Christian state—sorry, I

slaves are not at all forbidden. Quite the contrary, the rules regulating
sex-slaves differ from those for free women [i.e., Muslim women]: the latter’s
body must be covered entirely, except for her face and hands, whereas the
sex-slave is kept naked from the bellybutton on up—she is different from the

I began this web page with the faces of young
women killed in Islamic honor killings. An apologist for Islam who I
mentioned this to told me that honor killings are forbidden by Islam and that those who
commit them do so for tribal reasons. Perhaps tribal reasons play a role
but Islam does as well. Most honor killings are committed
against young women who either don't wear the Hijab and socialize with young men or
against women who are raped and are therefore considered either guilty of sex before
marriage or adultery. Those women who adopt western ways and socialize with boys
are considered apostates by fundamentalist Muslims and Islam commands death for
apostates. Islam teaches that most of the inhabitants of hell are women
and that a woman who is raped has to have the testimony of 4 male witnesses to
prove her innocence (Koran 24:4). A woman is therefore considered guilty of adultery
until proven innocent and since very few rapes have 4 male witnesses willing to
testify that it was a rape it is very unlikely that she will be able to prove
her innocence. The Islamic punishment for adultery is
death. The growing
influence of Islam in the West and the increasing number of Muslims in positions
of authority in the West are causing the same treatment of women as in Muslim

According to Islam, Muslims are at perpetual war with
the non-Muslims. Wherever, there is even a shred of Islam (even a single
Muslim) it is incumbent upon him to enforce Islam in whatever capacity. This
means, as per Islamic law (Sharia), infidel women, who do not comply with
the Islamic dress codes, are captives of the Muslims living in the infidel
territory. In Hedaya, the Hanafi law manual, we find that a Muslim living in
an infidel land is allowed to have unlimited sex with the non-Muslim women
without having the need to marry them. This should explain why, many Islamic
men in the infidel world are caught for raping the ‘slutty’ ‘bitchy’,
‘whores’; of the western countries. They deserve to be purified by Islamic
rape, as many such Muslim will say.
The Islamic hatred for western women who do not cover their bodies with
Islamic ‘tents’ knows no bound. In 2006, the Mufti of Australia, Sheikh
Hilali considered these western women as the ‘cat’s’ meat, that is: these
western women deserve to be eaten (sexually) by Muslim men who chance upon
them. We might not like what Mufti Hilali said, but he is absolutely
correct. Islam allows Muslim men to have forced sex upon non-Muslim women
who do not cover their ‘meat’. Here is the proof:
In verse 33:59. Allah says: O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters
and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) all over their
bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see
the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free
respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever of Forgiving,
In Islam, Muslim men are allowed to have unlimited
sexual intercourse with maidservants and/or sexual slaves. A Muslim man
commits rape if and only if he has sex with a Muslim woman out of wedlock.
Having forced sex with an infidel, uncovered woman does not at all
constitute rape, Islamically speaking.
The natural conclusion is that Muslim men are completely free to Islamically
rape these infidel women, if these whores fall in Muslim men's hands...
Gutmann is of the opinion that hijabisation of Muslim
women living in western countries is to prevent the infidel men from
touching/being intimate with them. This is a good observation. I would go
one step forward and state that this attitude is more prevalent among the
male of middle-eastern/Arab origin. Please note that these men have no qualm
sleeping/having sex with infidel women, but they will never tolerate infidel
men being intimate with Arab/middle-east women. There are instances when
Arab men have murdered infidel western men for having sex with hijabised/Arab
women. The message is very clear: hijabisation is to prevent the Muslim
women from mixing/ being intimate with infidel men. Thus, besides strictly
repressing the sexuality of a Muslim woman, hijab/niqab is also meant to
establish a permanent barrier between a Muslim woman and an infidel man.
Mentioned before, note again the double-standard: Muslim men are free to
have unfettered sex with infidel women, but the Muslim women cannot have the
Earlier I mentioned that Muhammad’s last instruction to Muslim men was to
beat women and treat them as domestic animals. A Muslim woman’s hijab/niqab
truly reflects this servitude of women to Muhammad’s command. A hijab/niqab
is a leash on a woman, much like a domesticated dog. A hijabised Muslim
woman is no better than a domestic dog.

The most senior judge in
England declared that Islamic legal principles in Shariah law may be used within
Muslim communities in
Britain to settle marital arguments as long as it was consistent with
English law. Shariah is not consistent with English law.
If a Shariah court ruled in a certain way and it was in
violation of British law I doubt the victim of a Shariah ruling would risk doing
anything about it and British judges would be afraid to rule against the Shariah
ruling. If a Muslim woman appealed to British law to challenge a Shariah
ruling she'd be seen as an infidel who betrayed Islam and Islamic law requires
that those who leave Islam be killed. Cal Thomas in an
article in the Washington Times wrote:
Here are just some of the "benefits" British Muslim
women can look forward to if Shariah law replaces English law: The Muslim
woman cannot marry without parental approval, worsening the problem of
forced marriage; marriages can be conducted without the presence of a bride,
as long as the guardian consents, creating a climate for underage and early
marriage; Muslim women may only marry Muslim men.
It gets worse. A Muslim man can divorce his wife by repudiating her; he has
no obligation to support a former wife, or her children after the divorce;
women are prohibited from divorcing a husband without his consent; abuse is
not grounds for a woman to end a marriage; in matters of inheritance, sons
are entitled to twice as much of an estate as daughters.

an article in Forbes Magazine this week pointed out that in 2008 the UK
Independent did a study and found that there were around 17,000 honor
attacks on young girls and women a year by Muslims holding up Sharia ideals.
This “honor violence” included kidnappings for forced marriages (girls as
young as 11), sexual abuse and murder.
“These girls often are raped by their much older husbands, who may also use
the marriage to immigrate to Europe, continuing the abusive treatment of
their brides there as well. Usually, too, the daughters of such couples are
kept at home, forbidden to live the lives of Western women, and in turn,
married off themselves…and so the chain continues. And these are often the
luckier ones.” – Forbes
This type of treatment of young women is really a form of modern slavery. It
is happening all over Europe and even in the United States in numbers far
worse than we probably would imagine. A couple of human rights organizations
in America recently did a studying showing 40% of Southeast Asian women in
the Boston area have been abused by such ‘honor violence’.

The verbal and physical abuse of Western women
at the hands of the Palestinian “freedom fighters” they came to
have been reported before. A series of articles in the
Ha’aretz documented the rapes of Western solidarity
supporters by the terrorists they came to serve.
According to Haaretz: “One of the more prominent Umm Salmuna
activists – a village south of Bethlehem, long entrenched in a
battle against the West Bank separation fence – is suspected of
the attempted rape of an American peace activist who had been
residing in the village as part of her support of the local
protest.” Local Palestinians then tried to cover up the
incident and threatened the victim. A local terrorist named
Omar Alladin (that is his real name) raped and molested a series
of American women, including one who was a Muslim American.
Curiously, one of the few anti-Israel groups to report the
a blog run by Arab lesbians.
Numerous other leftist Western women
who have come to the West Bank to protest Israel’s security
fence and to confront Israeli soldiers and police have also been
sexually abused and molested by the very Palestinians they came
to support. A
leftist local blogger reports that these Western women are
raped by the Palestinians “day after day, night after night.”
The embarrassing secrets of Palestinian
molestations of their Western solidarity supporters are coming
out of the closet. The radical Left has been hiding the reports
of sexual abuse, lest they blemish the terrorist cause. In
a report published by one radical activist: “Roni Aloni
Sedovnik, a feminist activist, penned an article in News1
– an independent website run by respected investigative reporter
Yoav Yitzchak – under the heading “The Left’s Betrayal of Female
Peace Activists Who were Sexually Assaulted.” She goes on to
describe the molestation as: “A dark secret that threatens to
smash the basic ideological values upon which the demand to end
the occupation of the Territories rests.”
Aloni Sedovnik stressed that these are not
isolated incidents, but an ongoing general pattern of abusive
behavior by Palestinians against the very Western women who have
come to support them. Sedovnik also accused radical Israeli
feminists of sweeping the information about the abuses under the
rug, lest it diminish world support for the Palestinian cause
beloved by those feminists.
It is not a matter of rape to satisfy
lust. They are done systematically in order to impregnate
the girl, and then to marry her, after she converts to
Islam. Of course, we know about this method from girls who
underwent a similar process inside Israel and escaped to
Europe, but it is hard to escape from the [Palestinian]
territories. Sometimes these women, some of whom are
already older women, are not allowed to leave their homes
unaccompanied, in order to prevent their escape. If someone
doubts my words…please, check the statistics for entries and
departures, and you will discover that a large portion of
female leftist activists did not leave the country. Everyone
knows about it, but nobody dares to talk about it…I ran into

In a frontpagemagazine symposium (Gender
Apartheid and Islam, 12/30/04) Ali Sina argued with two apologists for Islam's
teachings on women, Ms. Julia Roach and Mohammad El Mallah. Mr. Sina
Let us see what the Quran says about
women. It says “men have a degree (of advantage) over them” 2:228 ; that the witness of
woman is worth half of that of man 2:282; that
women inherit half of their male siblings, 4:11-12; that a man can marry two or three or four women 4:3; that if a women becomes captive in a war, her Muslim
master is allowed to rape her 33:50; that if a
woman is not totally submissive to her husband she will enter Hell 66:10; that women are “tilth” for their husbands (to
cultivate them) 2:223; that men are in
charge of women, as if women were imbeciles or minors who could not take care
of themselves; that they must be obedient to their husbands or be admonished
(verbally abused), banished from the bed (psychologically abused) and beaten
(physically abused) 4:34.
These verses define the station of women
Ms. Roach laments that Islam is not
practiced in all parts of the world by all Muslims to the standard prescribed
by Allah in the Qur’an.
For that we should give thanks to God.
Imagine if all Muslims were to stone or hang victims of rape or flog women for
minor offenses such as exposing a flock of hair. In fact, the countries that
practice Islam to its fullest are truly barbaric. Just think of the suffering
of the women in Afghanistan during the rule of the Taliban. Women were not
allowed to go out of their homes or work. Male doctors were not allowed to
visit female patients. So, when women became sick, there was no one to take
care of them and they died. The more a country becomes Islamic the more hellish
Ms. Roach comforts herself by thinking
that after women die they can expect to be treated equally and says “Women's
souls have equal value to those of Men's”. In other words, what she is saying
is that while women live a life of slavery, abuse and deprivation in this world
they can rejoice because after they die they will be treated equally. Although
I find this a vacuous bargain, the truth is that even this promise is not true.
Women in Islam are not treated equally even in death.
Men are promised many virgins after they
die. What do women get? They get their old lousy husband to share with 72
voluptuous celestial virgins. With that many high-bosomed houries why would any
man want to spend a night with an old wife? Do women get also young celestial
studs to have orgies with? No they don’t. They have to maintain their “modesty”
even after their death. The truth is that in Islam men and women are not
treated equally even after their death.
In fact, according to Muhammad few women
ever make it to Paradise . The majority of them end up in Hell. Let us see what
the Prophet says in this regards. This is where he describes his hallucinatory
visit to hell and paradise:
I saw the (Hell) Fire, and I have never before, seen such a horrible sight as
that, and I saw that the majority of its dwellers were women." The people
asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What is the reason for that?" He replied,
"Because of their ungratefulness." It was said. "Do they
disbelieve in Allah (are they ungrateful to Allah)?" He replied,
"They are not thankful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors
done to them. Even if you do good to one of them all your life, when she seems
some harshness from you, she will say, "I have never seen any good from
you.' " Bukhari 7.62.125...
She [Ms. Roach] also claims that a Muslim
woman has the right to sexual satisfaction within her marriage and clarified
that “if a woman is unsatisfied she can obtain a divorce”. Is that true? Under
the Sharia women are not allowed to divorce even if their husband beats them.
The decision to divorce rest only on man's whims. Now imagine a women going to
a Judge demanding divorce accusing her husband of impotency. How can you
humiliate the gigantic ego of a Muslim man and expect to live after that? She
will be a dead woman the next day. If she survives and manages to divorce, she
will be seen as a whore by everyone. A divorced woman has nowhere to go in the
Islamic world. I do not know whether Ms. Roach has ever lived in an Islamic
country. Muslim women are not allowed to have any libido. It is not pious for
women to have sexual feelings. In fact the genital mutilation is designed to
take away any sexual pleasure from them. Women are not supposed to enjoy sex.
If they have any libido, there is a risk that they may fornicate and commit
sin. Women must only provide satisfaction to their husbands and deny all their
own sexual needs. According to a tradition:
Allah's Apostle said, "If a husband
calls his wife to his bed (i.e. to have sexual relation) and she refuses and
causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till
It is hilarious to think that the angels
have nothing better to do than sit around and curse the poor woman all the
night for depriving them from watching the live porno show. If Allah must
punish woman for not satisfying the sexual needs of their husbands why does he
needs angels to lobby him for it? Isn’t it a waste of angel’s resources?
In one sense this is all truly very funny.
But in another, much larger sense, it is a tragedy...
I think it is worth mentioning that in
Saudi Arabia if a person has been killed or caused to die by another, the
latter has to pay blood money or compensation, as follows:
100,000 riyals if the victim is a Muslim man
50,000 riyals if a Muslim woman
50,000 riyals if a Christian man
25,000 riyals if a Christian woman
6,666 riyals if a Hindu man
3,333 riyals if a Hindu woman

The phenomenon of Muslim women defending
Islam is strange, Robert Spencer wrote an article about this titled
Covering Up the Plight of Muslim Women. After listing quotes in the
Koran that demonstrate Islam's negative attitude toward women Mr. Spencer wrote:
None of that is cultural; nor is it an historical
artifact. To take the case of wife-beating, for example, the Pakistan
Institute of Medical Sciences has determined that over ninety percent of
Pakistani wives have been struck, beaten, or abused sexually — for offenses
on the order of cooking an unsatisfactory meal. Others were punished for
failing to give birth to a male child. In Spring 2005, when the East African
nation of Chad tried to institute a new family law that would outlaw wife
beating, Muslim clerics led resistance to the measure as un-Islamic...the
situation of women in Islam will not improve until Muslim women are willing
to dare to speak about their plight, rather than to gloss over it and hope
no one will notice. Perhaps in this they can follow the example of
Muhammad’s wife Aisha, who once admonished him: “I have not seen any woman
suffering as much as the believing women.”
That’s the first step toward ending that suffering.
In 2009, I received an extraordinary report which
documented honor killings in Pakistan. My Pakistani informant, of the SW
Community Development Department, in Sind, Pakistan, sent me an unpublished
paper in which he describes and explains a murderous Pakistani culture very
carefully. He writes:
Women in Pakistan live in fear. They face death by shooting, burning or
killing with axes if they are deemed to have brought shame on the family.
They are killed for supposed ‘illicit’ relationships, for marrying men of
their choice, for divorcing abusive husbands. They are even murdered by
their kin if they are raped. The truth of the suspicion does not matter —
merely the allegation is enough to bring dishonor on the family and
therefore justifies the slaying. The lives of millions of women in Pakistan
are circumscribed by traditions which enforce extreme seclusion and
submission to men. Male relatives virtually own them and punish disobedience
According to my informant, of all of the honor killings in Pakistan, most go
unreported and even more go unpunished.
The isolation and fear of women living under such threats are compounded by
state indifference to and complicity in women’s oppression. Police almost
invariably take the man’s side in honor killings or domestic murders, and
rarely prosecute the killers. Even when the men are convicted, the judiciary
ensures that they usually receive a light sentence, reinforcing the view
that men can kill their female relatives with virtual impunity. There are
few women’s shelters, and any woman attempting to travel on her own is a
target for abuse by police, strangers or male relatives hunting for her. For
some women suicide appears the only means of escape.
He continues: “In [Pakistani] communities an ‘honor killing’ is considered a
just punishment, not a crime. This view is also shared by many Pakistanis
who do not belong to tribal societies.”
In these communities:
Male control does not only extend to a woman’s body and her sexual behavior
but all of her behavior, including her movements, her language and her
actions. In any of these areas, defiance by women translates into
undermining male honor and ultimately family and community honor. Severe
punishments are reported for bringing food late, for talking back or for
undertaking forbidden trips, etc. A man’s honor defiled by a woman’s alleged
or real sexual misdemeanor or other defiance is only partly restored by
killing her. He also has to kill the man allegedly involved. Since [the
woman] is murdered first, the [man] often hears about it and flees, aided by
the fact that unlike the woman, he is both familiar with the world outside
the house and can move freely in it. But [men] who escape will not be able
to return to normal life. Nobody will give such a man shelter; he remains on
the run until he and his family are ready to negotiate with the victim, the
man whose honour the [man] defiled. The balance is restored by negotiating
compensation for damages.

have [the right] that they should not cause anyone of whom you dislike to
tread your beds, and that they should not commit any open indecency (fahishah).
If they do, then God permits you to shut them in separate rooms and to
beat them, but not severely. If they abstain from [evil], they have the
right to their food and clothing in accordance with custom (bi’l-maruf).
Treat women well, for they are [like] domestic animals (‘awan) with you and
do not possess anything for themselves. You have taken them only as a trust
from God, and you have made the enjoyment of their persons lawful by the
word of God, so understand and listen to my words, O people. I have
conveyed the Message, and have left you with something which, if you hold
fast to it, you will never go astray:
Based on Sharia law, the worth of a woman is half that
of a man; that is only in punitive damages, or blood money. In court, the
worth of a woman is nothing. She cannot testify. She cannot serve as a
witness. A young girl can be married off at the age of 9, although in
marriage, a woman, in most cases, cannot initiate a divorce. Even when her
husband files, she can never have custody of her children; nor will she
receive any alimony. Likewise, when a father leaves his children
inheritance, Islamic law demands that the share of a son be double that of a
daughter. Even when a father insists on dividing his assets equally, an
Islamic court will rule in favor of the son after his father’s death.
Abu Ala Maududi, the foremost Islamist ideologue in Pakistani
history, wrote a book Purdah and the Status of Women in Islam (1939).

lead to adultery. Perfume too. The same goes for her voice, which is “the
devil’s agent.” Also the sound of her heels. On his watch Pakistan
introduced the hadood laws. A woman who reports a rape must come up with
four honorable Muslim men to serve as witnesses to it. If she can’t, she will
herself be prosecuted for adultery – since she has herself, after all, admitted
to having had extramarital sex. Robert Spencer in his book

In Pakistan, it is reported that three out of four women in prison under its
Hudud laws [these are the laws of what it forbidden and permitted by Allah
himself], are rape victims. Because rape is equated with zina [unlawful sexual
intercourse] under Hudud law, rape victims are required to produce four pious
male witnesses. It is of course nearly impossible for the rape victims to
produce the four male witnesses required to prove their allegation. Therefore
their police report of rape was taken as a confession of illicit sex on their
part and they were duly found guilty.

Kainat Soomro is a
17-year-old Pakistani girl who was raped and whose family
would not kill her. That has left her family fearing for their lives.
The family's home in Karachi was attacked several times times. According
to Abdul Hai, a veteran field officer for the Human Rights Commission in
Pakistan Kainat is lucky: "The woman or the girl usually gets killed and the man
gets away," he said. "Over 70 percent of the murdered victims are women and only
30 percent of victims of honor killings are male." In Karachi, Kainat and
her family are now sharing one room in a run-down apartment block, and they have
to rely on charities to help them pay for food. "We go hungry many
nights," said Kainat's older sister. But their fight might never pay off.
A local judge has already ruled against Kainat in the case. "There is no
corroborative evidence available on record. The sole testimony of the alleged
rape survivor is not sufficient," the judge said in a written decision.

managed to convict and flog over a hundred women.
Raba Khaja is a woman from Kuwait told her
story of trying to divorce her husband to Jamie Glazov of Frontpage Magazine.
On the advice of friends and
relatives, including my lawyer (they said that so long as my husband does
not want to divorce, I do not have a case with Shari'a courts), I did not
file a case against him until recently, and resorted to solve the problem
peacefully. But he refused and insisted that he'd never divorce me. He
mocked me when I told him that I was going to sue him for divorce, saying
that Shari'a is a "man". And he was right.
Only three years back, when I lost all hope, I filed a case against him. And
guess what? I got convicted with Ta'a.
FP: What is Ta'a exactly?
Khaja: To understand Ta'a, you have to know that in the Islamic Shari'a,
(theoretically speaking), the wife has to be obedient to her husband; she
should not leave the marital house without his permission. If she does not
abide to those rules, the husband could get a court order to imprison her
within the confinement of the marital house. And Ta'a is that court order.
Even without the court order of Ta'a, husbands have the right to place their
wives' names at the borders, forbidding them from leaving the country.
Sometimes it's done officially, other times through the corrupted system
that is depleted with connections.
In the Koran (4.34) it is written:
are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the
other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So
good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded.

Perhaps the above commandment explains the recent news item of a

In addition to the Koran,
Mohammed's teachings are included in the Hadith. Next to the Koran, is is
the most important part of Islamic law, its teachings are just as
binding. The following quotes from the Hadith are from the "Sahih
Al-Bukhari". In volume 3:826 of Sahih Al-Bukhari Muhammed is quoted
as explaining why a witness of a woman is equal to half that of a man. He
is because of the deficiency of the woman's mind.

Pakistan’s President Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq (1977-1988)
implemented the Hudood Ordinances in 1979. Hudood crimes are those considered
most serious in Islamic law. These laws returned the crime of rape to the realm
of Islamic law, making a rape victim liable to being prosecuted for adultery if
she could not produce four male Muslim witnesses who would testify that they had
actually witnessed the rape.
This law comes from the Qur’an. Accusations of adultery against
Muhammad’s favorite wife, Aisha, and Muhammad’s desire to exonerate her
brought about the requirement that four male Muslim witnesses must be
produced in order to establish a crime of adultery or other sexual
indiscretions: “Why did they not produce four witnesses? Since they produce
not witnesses, they verily are liars in the sight of Allah” (Qur’an 24:13;
see also 24:4 and Bukhari, vol. 3, book 52, no. 2661).
Aisha’s own word counted for nothing to establish the falsity of the
accusations against her -- so to this day Islamic law restricts the validity
of a woman’s testimony, particularly in cases involving sexual immorality.
Says the Qur’an: “Call in two male witnesses from among you, but if two men
cannot be found, then one man and two women whom you judge fit to act as
witnesses; so that if either of them commit an error, the other will
remember” (2:282). And Islamic legal theorists have restricted women’s
testimony even farther, limiting it to, in the words of one Muslim legal
manual, “cases involving property, or transactions dealing with property,
such as sales” (‘Umdat al-Salik, o24.8). Otherwise only men can testify.
Consequently, it is even today virtually impossible to prove rape in lands
that follow these Sharia provisions. As long as men deny the charge and
there are no witnesses, they get off scot-free, because the victim’s account
is inadmissible. Even worse, if a woman cannot produce four male witnesses,
she may end up incriminating herself simply by making the charge: she has by
charging a man with rape made an admission of adultery. That accounts for
the grim fact that, according to the Muslim feminist group Sisters in Islam,
as many as seventy-five percent of the women in prison in Pakistan are, in
fact, behind bars for the crime of being a victim of rape.
Mohammed also quoted as saying that:
was shown the Hell-fire and the majority of its dwellers are women
have not left any affliction more harmful to men than women 7:33
The Koran commands men to beat women
who are disobedient.
Sura 4:34 of the Koran says,
are the managers of the affairs of women . . . Those women who are rebellious —
admonish them, banish them to their couches, and beat them.”
In Tirmzi P439 we find:
a woman's conduct is mischievous or immodest, the husband has the right to beat
her up (Tirmzi P439)
These religious commands of
Islam help us understand why Mohamed Kamal Mustafa, A prominent Muslim preacher
from Italy authored a book Women in Islam, in which he wrote that verbal
warnings followed by a period of sexual inactivity can be used to discipline a
disobedient wife. If that failed he said that according to Islamic law,
beatings could be then judiciously administered. "The blows should
be concentrated on the hands and feet using a rod that is thin and light so
that it does not leave scars or bruises on the body."
These commands also

all married wives for a fixed time (usually three days) for the dowry of a
piece of cloth." (Al Hadis, Vol. 2, p. 686)
Here Mohammed clearly tells the Muslims to forget about the
prostitutes they had purchased for a handful of dates back home and to have fun
with these new victims who come even cheaper. They can be bought and violated
for only a piece of cloth. Allah is truly merciful! Praise be to Allah!

“Among the more significant illustrations of
imitating (the unbelievers), and the most dangerous for Muslims, is the
enchantment of women. And this is among the traits of the unbelievers. The
intent of this is to bring (them) out of their nature, veil, and modesty so
that they could use it to tempt men…. Because women desire the glamour of the
materialistic life, they are inclined to imitate, accommodate, and exaggerate
in all of this, because women were built to seduce and beautify themselves for
men. And men were built to desire a woman when she exposes (herself), and not
to desire her when she is modest and covering.” [Document No. 47]

that, if Muslim women unveil themselves, the whole Muslim community will be in

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.” And “in 2002,
in Tehran, an Iranian man cut off his seven-year-old daughter’s head after
suspecting she had been raped by her uncle. ‘The motive behind the killing
was to defend my honor, fame, and dignity.’ Some people called for this
man’s death under Islamic law, but ironically, only the father of the victim
can demand the death sentence.”
Chesler recounts many such killings. “In 1999, in Lahore, Pakistan, Samia
Imran was shot dead in her feminist lawyer’s office by a man whom her
parents had hired to kill her. Her crime? Seeking a divorce….In 2001, in
Gujar Khan, Pakistan, Zahida Perveen’s husband attacked her, gouged out both
her eyes, her nose, and her ears. He wrongly suspected her of adultery. He
was arrested, but male relatives shook his hand and men decided she ‘must
have deserved it’ and that a ‘husband has to do what a man has to do.’…In
2005, in Gaza, five masked members of Hamas…shot Yusra Azzumi, a
twenty-year-old Palestinian woman, to death, brutalized her corpse, and
savagely beat both her brother, Rami, and her fiancé, Ziad Zaranda, whom she
was to marry within days. This self-appointed Morality Squad wrongly
suspected Yusra (herself a Hamas member) of “immoral behavior.”
Sophia, a twenty two year old
Pakistani woman of Muslim origin decided to leave Islam. In her testimony
(printed in Leaving
Islam, she wrote:
rebellion was against a culture that teaches me to be subservient, to accept
social sexual harassment, and even to be killed. I worked with an
organization in Pakistan where I witnessed acid being thrown over women because
they married men they chose or they left men they chose to leave. Women
were killed for disobeying, and thus dishonoring the family, beaten because
they raised their voice against a man. Yes, all these things are directly
related to religion. Islamic preachers will tell you all that is cultural
and that Islam has played no role in this. Coincidentally, this culture seems
to repeat itself in almost every Muslim country from Asia to Africa.
Acid attacks are increasingly popular among Islamic supremacists bent on
controlling women and punishing them for getting out of line. "Pakistani Women

fatwa was issued in a sermon during a weekly Friday prayer in Kohistan

that women from secular NGOs who visit Kohistan district may be married off
forcibly to local men. In a similar incident, a cleric announced a fatwa in

Saira Nusrat Bibi was forced to marry a 45 year old when she was only nine, in
Pakistan. When she reached 17 years old girl she was successfully fighting
a legal battle to have her marriage annulled. As she left court in the Punjabi
city of Sahiwal, she was surrounded by a group of men reportedly sent by her
parents, and shot in front of police. This was after five women - among
them three teenage schoolgirls express the desire to marry men of their choice
in defiance of the wishes of tribal leaders.

Over the last few years, the phenomenon of acid attacks
upon women by men in Pakistan has gained increasing consideration in the
Western press. These attacks involve an individual dashing highly
concentrated, corrosive acid into the face of a woman – usually, a young
woman – with whom the man is vexed for some reason. Often, it is a spurned
suitor, although occasionally it is carried out by a woman's own family
member over a point of "honor," such as disobeying her husband. These
assaults invariably render the women aesthetic monstrosities.
The Express Tribune of Pakistan wrote on Sept 18
how 7 women had been
attacked with acid in the last 2 days. One of the women was told that
she ‘deserved for her face to be ruined because she had not covered her head’.
Another woman fled her husband Umar Hayat after he beat her to stay with
her parents and sisters and refused to come back home with him. The
Express Tribune reported that:
On Thursday night, Umar Hayat, along

his in-laws by breaking the door when the family were
asleep. Hayat sprayed acid on his wife Nabila,

Bibi and Nazia, the wife of his brother in-law. The victims
sustained serious injuries to their face and bodies.
All the burnt victims have been

serious condition. Three of the victims have sustained over
80 percent burns and are in critical condition.
Fox News reported
(11/14/2008) that Muslims squirted acid on three groups of female students
and teachers who were walking to school in Afghanistan. It is likely that
the Taliban were responsible because girls were banned from schools under the

On the evening of Monday 9 October, Kaihana Hussain, the teenage
daughter of Muslim immigrants, told her parents that she was converting from
Islam to Christianity. (Australia: Girl’s
Conversion Results in Mother’s Death, 10/13/2006) Her father responded with
unrestrained fury. Neighbours heard "blood curdling" and
"terrifying" screams and cries of "Help me, help me, they're
trying to kill me", but they were unsure which apartment the screams were
coming from, and the voices were unfamiliar.
After a short time, Kaihana came running out
of the family's apartment, dressed only in her underwear, her clothes torn off,
blood splattered over her severely scratched and cut body.
All that is known at this stage is that
after her father began to attack her, Kaihana's mother, Yasmin (41, and a
strict and devout Muslim), intervened to aid and protect her daughter.
What police found when they entered the
apartment was Yasmin bleeding severely from a fatal knife wound to the chest,
and her husband, Kaihana's father, Dr Muhammad Hussain (49) also bleeding from
a potentially fatal knife wound to the chest. Blood was splattered on walls,
floors and doorways throughout the three-bedroom luxury apartment. Yasmin died
at the scene and Dr Hussain is presently hospitalised in an induced coma, in a
critical condition. Police have confirmed that Kaihana is not a suspect in

The report singled out
as especially horrifying the honor killing
in Pakistan of "a 16-year-old girl who was
reportedly electrocuted to death after being
drugged with sleeping pills and being tied
to a wooden bed with iron chains." Her
offense: marrying a boy from the wrong

This does not only happen in the Middle
East since Muslims are all over the world. In one case the strict Muslim
father and brother of "Harry Potter" actress Afshan Azad were charged with
threatening to kill her because she had a boyfriend.
The Daily Express reported that
Abdul Azad, 54, is accused of threatening to kill his daughter while
Ashraf Azad, 28, is charged with threatening to kill his sister and of
causing her actual bodily harm.
The charges follow an alleged “honour” argument in the Muslim family’s home
about Afshan’s friendship with a Hindu man.
Her brother and father allegedly confronted her in her bedroom and demanded
that she end the relationship.
When she refused it is claimed she was attacked and left “badly bruised”.

Medine Memi was a 16 year old girl
buried alive in Turkey because she was friendly with boys. Turkey attempted to crack down on the
practice of honor killings.
The result has
been honor suicides. A woman's fate is usually determined by a family
council where the alleged dishonor is discussed and the penalty pronounced.
Woman ordered to take their own lives are usually locked in a room with a noose,
a gun or rat poison until the deed is done.
Suicide bombing is seen as a way a
woman can redeem the family honor. Dr. Arieh Eldad said in an interview
with the New English Review that:
I was instrumental in establishing the Israeli
National Skin Bank, which is
the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for every day
needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations. This skin bank is
hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I
was the chairman of plastic surgery.
This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza, who was
hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheba after her family burned her.
Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are
suspected of having an affair. We supplied all the needed Homografts for her
treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and colleague Prof.
Lior Rosenberg, and discharged to return to Gaza.
She was invited for regular follow up visits to the outpatient clinic in
Beersheba. One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide
belt. She meant to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital
where they saved her life. It seems that her family promised her that if she
did that, they would forgive her.
Known honor killings first arrived in North America in
1989, when Palestina Isa's father, an Abu Nidal Palestinian terrorist and
his wife, her mother, both slaughtered their hard-working and much-abused 16
year old daughter Palestina. Her crime? She was becoming too "American," too
independent, too academically ambitious--and she had a friend, a boy, who
was an African-American. Her mother held her down and her father butchered
her with tremendous animal ferocity.
In another article Phyllis Chesler wrote that gruesome overkill of family
members is indicative of an honor killing as opposed to domestic violence.
She gave two examples:
In 2000, in Chicago, Shapara Sayeed, aged 33, was
burned alive by her Pakistani husband, Mohammed Haroon. They had allegedly
been "fighting for a long time." It looks like another case of western-style
domestic violence/femicide except for the method of murder: Immolation,
which is associated with the Muslim honor killings both of intimate family
women and of women who are seen as not "covered" enough, too "western" by
the Taliban, etc.
In 2002, in Jersey City, New Jersey, another victim, aged 29, was Marlyn
Hassan, who refused to convert from Hinduism to Islam. Her husband, Alim
Hassan, a Guyanese Muslim, stabbed her to death while she was late in
pregnancy with his twin children--and he also stabbed her sister and her
mother. Again, gruesome overkill.

Parvez, 16, was strangled by her father in an honor murder Monday (12/10/07) in
the Toronto-area city of Mississauga. Her brother has
also been charged with murdering her. Refusing to wear the Islamic hijab, Parvez,
who was herself born in Pakistan, wanted to live the normal lifestyle of a
Canadian teenage girl, but ran into conflict with her strict, religious father.
One friend and schoolmate said the Canadian teenager was afraid of her father
and often came to school wearing bruises, the result of his violence.
Nevertheless, the Grade 11 student, according to friends, would leave home
wearing the hijab but arrive at school in western-style clothes, having changed
on the way. This was part of her courageous desire to live her own life and
overcoming the fear in which she lived.

murdered by their father, Yasser Said, on New Year’s Day, 2008. (I have
written about this tragic case before for Pajamas Media.) As of this
writing, Yasser Said has not yet been captured.
The girls 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. Gail and the other female relatives

terrorist. I was only recently told that Yasser always seemed to have a lot
of guns, machine guns — they’re illegal here — but handguns too.” Gail tells
It’s another face of jihad. These men come here from Egypt, they marry
American women in order to become American citizens. The American wives
convert to Islam. Then, they have Muslim children who are natural-born
American citizens — but who are raised to hate America and to want to live
under shari’a law. Then, these men expect their teen-age American daughters
to marry much older Muslim men from Egypt in arranged marriages. I know that
Yasser wanted Amina to marry someone from Egypt...
Gail is proud
that her great-niece Amina refused to accept an arranged marriage, glad that
they were both brave enough to run away. Both girls had non-Muslim
boyfriends. Neither girl wanted to wear hijab. Clearly, these American-style
choices are all capital crimes to someone like Yasser Said.
Said has not been caught.
In San Francisco,
a young Muslim woman was shot dead after she uncovered her hair and put on

Journal Constitution 7/6/08) because she didn't want to marry the man
designated for her in an arranged marriage.
When a Muslim murders his family we don't always know if it is an honor killing
or not but there are indications.

only to be told that the young woman was "having a fit." Some moments
later, Nazir attempted to escape. She ran out of the house but her
family members caught up with her on the entrance porch and pulled her

her bloodstained arms desperately. When the police finally arrived, they found
her body slumped in a pool of blood with a scarf wound tightly around her neck

eighteen stab wounds inflicted with four different knives. The investigation
revealed that she was held down by her own mother as her male kin went about

It is estimated that 30,000 women among Germany’s 3.2 million Muslim
population, of which 2.7 million are of Turkish origin, are subjected to forced
marriages every year. Hundreds of young Muslim girls disappear annually from
their German elementary and high schools to travel to their native Turkey and
other Muslim countries, never to return. Many are told they are going on
holidays and do not realize they are to be married until after their arrival,
after which their passports, jeans and freedom are taken away and replaced
with head scarves and confinement. Moreover, it is only on their wedding day
that some see their husbands for the first time…
In many cases, the new wives live a slave-like existence for years in
their new families, toiling long hours at housework under the rule of an
oppressive mother-in-law, while suffering extensive physical and emotional
abuse, sometimes from the day after their wedding, at the hands of their
husbands. It is estimated that thousands, if not tens of thousands, of Muslim
women in Germany endure daily such barbaric conditions.
Needless to say, freedom of movement, to come and go as they wish, also
does not exist for the female newlyweds. Even Muslim girls who grew up in
Germany and had enjoyed this basic right in their outwardly integrated families
are now confined to the home of their new husbands and may not leave unless
accompanied by a male…many of the abused wives are
threatened with death if they go to the police. And those who do flee are also
potential murder victims, since leaving a traditional, patriarchal Muslim home
carries a death sentence.
The Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) in Britain has calculated
that as many as 17,000 women of the Islamic persuasion are subjected to
“forced marriages, kidnappings, sexual assaults, beatings and even murder by
relatives intent on upholding the ‘honour’ of their family”—35 times higher
than the official figures (littlegreenfootballs.com, February 11, 2008).
Children as young as 11 are regularly repatriated to their “home countries”
to enroll in madrassas where they are indoctrinated in the fundamental
tenets of their faith or contracted to be married. Young women who object or
who eventually leave such loveless marriages are often in danger for their
lives. But Muslim spokespeople have consistently tried to shift the blame
away from their own culpable community onto society at large.
In December 2009
Mehmet Gordon was convicted in London of murdering his fifteen year old
daughter, Tulay. When her father discovered she was no longer a
virgin (she had told a friend she may even be pregnant), he and her family’s
male members regarded her as a “worthless commodity.” Tulay’s family also did
like the fact her boyfriend, Halil Unal, was from another branch of Islam. But
what apparently disturbed Tulay’s father the most was that he would not be
receiving any bride price money after his daughter had run away to live with
Hilal, also a Kurd from Turkey.
The wife testified at the trial her husband had sent her to demand a $10,000
bride price from Unal to cover the “shame” he had caused their family honor, but
she returned home empty handed. Hanim indicated her husband probably wanted the
money for gambling, testifying he was an avid gambler who would gamble away the
family’s social benefits in Turkish cafes. A week after Tulay’s
disappearance, Unal himself became the target of an honor murder. Mehmet Gornon
tried to kill him in an axe attack that put Unal in hospital with a serious neck

woman, who fled a planned forced marriage and is now living what the police
term a ‘submarine existence’ (she is in hiding), said her father told her when

that he would kill her if he ever caught her playing with boys. This ‘man of
honor’, she says, has now threatened to pour gasoline over her and burn her to
death if he ever finds her.
A non-Muslim man who has sex with
a woman can be killed as well. Nineteen year old
Yvan Schneider was beaten to death with baseball bats by

Ibn Warraq author of Why I
am not a Muslim has an online article called Islam's
Shame, Lifting the Veil of Tears, about the persecution of women under
Islam. Accidental Angel, an article in the March 2001 issue of Vogue
magazine tells how in the summer of 2000, the Taliban, the Islamic
Fundamentalist Government of Afghanistan arrested Mary MacKakin a 72 year old
American Grandmother who was helping the widows of Afghanistan by giving them
work. When the Taliban came to power they forbid women to work. One
result was starving widows who had no man to support them. When the
Taliban came to power they also banned girls from school. Women were
allowed outside the house only to run errands and even then they had to be
accompanied by a close male relative. If a woman's hand was visible she
risked a beating. If a member of the Taliban decided he wanted to marry a
woman, he could arrive at her house that day and announce his intention to

Taliban in the newsletter of her organization PARSA and believes that is why she

U.S. News and World Report, Oct 5, 01, writes how:
the two years between the Taliban's takeover of her hometown of Kabul and the
death threat that forced her to flee her country, Laila watched women beaten
with bicycle chains for "walking too fast." She saw female
friends sell off cherished possessions item by item until they became beggars
and war widows forced into prostitution. "You can't watch your
children starve" she says, "So you leave your honor
behind." A former medical student Laila, 30, was confined to her
home by a Taliban edict forbidding women to seek schooling or to walk outside
without both a male escort and a burka, a head to toe covering broken only by
finely woven netting at the eyes. She began tutoring her neighbors'
daughters, also banned from seeking an education. It wasn't long before
some 45 children a day were knocking on her door-and only a little longer
before the Taliban discovered her underground school. "They beat me
in front of the children" she recalls from her new home in the United
States," and told me that if I did one more thing against the Taliban,
they would kill me." Then they turned to the girls, cowering in the
corners. "They told them they would be burned alive if they ever
returned to school again."

Women were the first to demonstrate against Khomeini's
regime with a mass rally in Tehran on March 8, 1979 - less than a month
after the mullahs had seized power. Over the next decade, the authorities
imprisoned hundreds of thousands of women for varying lengths of time, and
But women continued to fight a regime that deemed them subhuman. Their
resistance prevented the mullahs from abrogating pre-revolutionary laws
limiting gender discrimination. Thus, women succeeded in keeping their right
to vote and win public office.
They also retained a veto, granted by the shah, on their husbands' Islamic
right to take up to four permanent wives and countless temporary concubines.
Last June, Ahmadinejad sought to remove that veto, launching a campaign with
quotations from the Prophet and the 12 Imams of Shiite Islam to prove that
men who took many wives would have a fast track to paradise.
To make polygamy practically impossible, a law predating the revolution
required men seeking added wives to prove that they're financially capable
of running more than one household. Since few can meet that condition, the
number of Iranian men with more than one wife had fallen to a few hundred
before the mullahs seized power.
And most of those polygamists were mullahs or wealthy bazaar merchants
associated with them.
Last month, Ahmadinejad presented a draft bill designed to "re-Islamicize"
the status of women. He claimed that the shah had used laws inspired by
"Zionist-Crusaders" to deal with women's issues.
His new law would restore men's Islamic right to divorce their wives without
even informing them. Men would also be absolved from paying alimony.
In exchange, they'd be required to pay a mahrieh (a severance payment, whose
amount is set in the marriage contract) to a wife they wish to divorce. But
the draft law also plans a hefty government tax on the mahrieh. So a
divorced woman left with no alimony and no resources except her mahrieh
could end up losing most of that to the government. "
The only explanation for taking away what
money divorced women have, is Islamic hostility to women, a hostility that stems
from hostile statements toward women in the Koran and the Hadiths.
An apologist for Islam told me that Islam allows
polygamy so that a barren woman won't be abandoned by her husband and so that he
can have children by marrying someone else. Muslim males however marry
multiple women who can bare children. Muhammad had multiple
wives even though his first wife had given him several children.
Against the Veil is a scathing indictment of Islam's oppression of
women. It tells the story of Dr. Homa Darabi, the first Iranian ever to be
accepted into the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, who committed
suicide in a crowded public square in Tehran in 1994 in order to bring
awareness to the world of the slave conditions for women living in Iran.
A reviewer of the book for Amazon.com
just read this book and wanted to write my review. Since I believe in God, I
think Dr. Homa Darabi's act was ordained by God to bring the plight of the
Muslim women to the world's attention. Growing up as a Muslim girl, my rights
were constantly violated by my father, brothers and male cousins. What Parvin
Darabi and Romin P. Thomson describe in Rage Against the Veil is a life lived
by many women in the Islamic world. I was told that my function in life as a
woman is to marry and bear children and to serve my husband and my children all
my life with no expectations for mine. This book is any Muslim woman's life.
This book is about my life, my female friends and relatives life. I am so
pleased that this book is written which tells the world what women like Dr.
Homa Darabi and so on have lived through. I am buying this book and
giving it as gifts and I ask others to do the same. Thank you Parvin Darabi and
Romin P. Thomson to tell others what we go through.

a girl is raped by a man, since she is no longer a virgin, it is usually
believed that the best way to solve the problem is to get them married,
especially if the man is not already married. If the man is already
married and the raped girl is pregnant, this creates a more complicated
situation and usually ends in the girl's murder." The report
suggests that the practice of forcing rape victims to marry their attackers had
been partly reinforced by an earlier, but now obsolete, Turkish penal code.
This stipulated that if a rapist married his victim, his penalty would be
suspended and if he stayed married to her for five years, it would be cancelled
completely. The UN report, which is based on interviews with more than 250
people in Istanbul and other cities with large Kurdish populations, details
several such cases. One involved the rape of a mentally challenged girl.
"The brothers of the girl offered her in marriage to the man and said that
they would pay all wedding costs, all in an effort to avoid gossip," the
report says. "In the end, they shot the man dead. Later, they threw the
girl into a water channel. "Somehow the girl was not hurt; she was saved
and then she was sent to another place through [social] organisations. However,
the family is still after her."
The following excerpt is from an article about Muslim
thinking about infidel women in Pakistan and how that thinking has been exported

Rapes and the Aussie Riots, 12/15/05)
some parts of Pakistan, sexual assault – including gang rape – is officially
sanctified as a legitimate form of enforcing the social value system.
One village council recently ordered that five young girls should be “abducted,
raped or murdered” for refusing to be treated as chattel. The girls were aged
between six and thirteen when they were married without their knowledge, to pay
a family debt.
And when Mukhtar Mai’s 12-year-old brother was alleged to have committed an
offence in a small Pakistani farming village, the village council ordered that
his sister be gang-raped. So, she was taken to a hut where four men repeatedly
According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan there were 804 cases of

number of rape charges in Sweden has tripled in the last 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. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and
Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects... Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm, who
has investigated violent crimes in Svea high court, found that 85 per cent of
the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or by foreign parents.
Muslim immigrants admit their bias quite openly. An Islamic Mufti in Copenhagen
sparked a political outcry after publicly declaring that women who refuse to
wear headscarves are "asking for rape." Apparently, he's not the only
one thinking this way. “It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an
Arab girl,” says Hamid. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and
she had probably fucked before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems
with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame. It is important
that she retains her virginity until she marries.” It was no coincidence that
it was a Swedish girl that was gang raped in Rissne – this becomes obvious from
the discussion with Ali, Hamid, Abdallah and Richard. All four have disparaging
views on Swedish girls, and think this attitude is common among young men with
immigrant background. “It is far too easy to get a Swedish whore…… girl, I
mean;” says Hamid, and laughs over his own choice of words. “Many immigrant
boys have Swedish girlfriends when they are teenagers. But when they get
married, they get a proper woman from their own culture who has never been with
a boy. That’s what I am going to do. I don’t have too much respect for Swedish
girls. I guess you can say they get fucked to pieces.”
The number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations are so
extremely high that it is difficult to view them only as random acts of
individuals. It resembles warfare. Muhammad himself had forced sex (rape) with
several of his slave girls/concubines. This is perfectly allowed, both in the
sunna and in the Koran. If you postulate that many of the Muslims in Europe
view themselves as a conquering army and that European women are simply war
booty, it all makes perfect sense and is in full accordance with Islamic law.
Western women are not so much regarded by most Muslims as individuals, but as
"their women," the women who "belong" to hostile Infidels.
They are booty, to be taken, just as the land of the Infidels someday will
drop, it is believed, into Muslim hand. This is not mere crime, but
ideologically-justified crime or rather, in Muslim eyes, attacks on Infidels
scarcely qualify as crime. Western women are cheap and offensive. We Muslims
are here, here to stay, and we have a right to take advantage of this
situation. It is our view of the matter that should prevail. Western goods,
like the land on which we now live, belong to Allah and to the best of men --
his Believers. Western women, too, essentially belong to us -- our future
Sweden, like the rest of the West, will
have to come to terms with the fact that it can
either have female equality or Muslim
immigration. It cannot have both.
If a woman doesn't wear a headscarf
that is seen as justification by some Muslims to rape her. Sharon Lapkin,
in an article titled Western
Muslims Racist Rape Spree wrote:
Australia's New South Wales Supreme Court in December 2005, a visiting
Pakistani rapist testified that his victims had no right to say no, because
they were not wearing a headscarf.
And earlier this year Australians were outraged when Lebanese Sheik Faiz
Mohammed gave a lecture in Sydney where he informed his audience that rape
victims had no one to blame but themselves. Women, he said, who wore skimpy
clothing, invited men to rape them.
A few months earlier, in Copenhagen, Islamic mufti and scholar, Shahid Mehdi

not wear a headscarf were asking to be raped.
And with haunting synchronicity in 2004, the London Telegraph reported that

who smokes, uses makeup or wears attractive clothes is a whore.”
Unfortunately, Western women are not the only victims in this epidemic. In
Indonesia, in 1998, human rights groups documented the testimony of over 100
Chinese women who were gang raped during the riots that preceded the fall of
President Suharto. Many of them were told: “You must be raped, because you are
Chinese and non-Muslim.”
Christian Solidarity Worldwide reported that in April 2005, a 9-year-old
Pakistani girl was raped, beaten with a cricket bat, hanged upside down from
the ceiling, had spoonfuls of chillies poured into her mouth, and repeatedly
bashed while handcuffed. Her Muslim neighbours told her they were taking
revenge for the American bombing of Iraqi children and informed her they were
doing it because she was an “infidel and a Christian.”
In Sudan – where Arab Muslims slaughter black Muslim and Christian Sudanese in
an ongoing genocide – former Sudanese slave and now a human rights’ activist
Simon Deng says he witnessed girls and women being raped and that the Arab
regime of Khartoum sends its soldiers to the field to rape and murder. In other
reports, women who are captured by government forces are asked; “Are you
Christian or Muslim?” and those who answer Christian, are gang raped before
having their breasts cut off.
I (the author of this web site)
once read a story about the discovery of a dead girl locked up in a closet in a
kitchen in Smyrna after the Muslim Turks wiped out the Christian Armenian
population there. Her breasts had been cut off. I was shocked by
the brutality and hatred that would have motivated such a crime and started
doubting it ever happened but the above reports from Khartoum lend credibility
to the account.

Asian (i.e. Muslim). The problem with using code words like that is it
gets people to hate innocent Asians who are not Muslims.
"This is a horrific kind of crime," said Mr Davies. "It involves systematic,

A Dutch filmmaker, Theo van
Gogh, wrote columns about Islam that were published on his Web site, www.theovangogh.nl, and in the Dutch
newspaper Metro. He also made a film titled "Submission" with
Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a member of the Dutch parliament who had renounced
the Islamic faith of her birth.( My Way News
11/2/04) It told the fictional story of a Muslim woman forced into a
violent marriage, raped by a relative and brutally punished for adultery. This
film enraged the Muslims of the Netherlands even though similar stories have
occurred in real life. On Nov 2, 2004, a man with a long beard, wearing
Islamic garb shot him several times, then stabbed him repeatedly and slit his throat
with a butcher knife. The murderer left a note on his body.
According to an article in frontpagemag.com (Death of a
Blasphemer, Robert Spencer, 11/3/04) the note contained verses from the
Qu'ran. According to the NRC Handelsblad newspaper the note called for
an Islamic holy war. According to scotsman.com
(11/8/04) a five-page letter addressed to Ayaan, was pinned to his body
with a knife. Here is some of the text of the note (Netherlands

they are not drunken. Fear will fill the air on the Great Day,"

death threat saying: "You are next." She has been living for months
surrounded by government bodyguards 24 hours a day. Pim Fortuyn is
another Dutch politician who was murdered because of his opinions regarding
Islam. Robert Spencer wrote about other Islamic murders to silence free
speech. He wrote:
1947, the Iranian lawyer Ahmad Kasravi was murdered in court by Islamic
radicals; Kasravi was there to defend himself against charges that he had
attacked Islam. Four years later, members of the same radical Muslim group,
Fadayan-e Islam, assassinated Iranian Prime Minister Haji-Ali Razmara after a
group of Muslim clerics issued a fatwa calling for his death. In 1992, the
Egyptian writer Faraj Foda was murdered by Muslims enraged at his “apostasy”
from Islam — another offense for which traditional Islamic law prescribes the
death penalty. Foda’s countryman, the Nobel Prizewinning novelist Naguib
Mahfouz, was stabbed in 1994 after accusations of blasphemy. Under
blasphemy laws, many non-Muslims have been arrested, tortured, and sentenced to
die on the slimmest of evidence. And of course, there is the Ayatollah
Khomeini’s notorious death fatwa against Salman Rushdie.

women's rights group called Aurat, even if the case returns to a more typical
course, she is likely to spend 10 to 15 years in prison, said. As many as
80 percent of all women in Pakistani jails have been convicted under laws that

Human rights groups say abuse of
women is endemic in Pakistan. Often, they are locked inside their homes where
they are subjected to beatings, acid attacks, burning and rape. Every year
there are hundreds of "honor killings," in which a woman is murdered
for perceived breaches of modesty (New York Times 5/19/02).
Women may also be killed if they
refuse to marry a husband that is arranged for them. In 2003, three young
men with axes hacked to death their two sisters for spurning their family's
attempts to force them into arranged marriages (Killing
Women for Honor by Ted Lapkin 1/28/04).
If you are a Christian woman in
Pakistan you are a target of Muslims just for being an infidel. In one
case a Christian girl named Tabasum was also a target because her parents
reported a Muslim brothel to the police. One night she went out late to
buy some loaves of bread and was reportedly abducted by her former neighbors
and two other men. According to the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance, APMA,
"They put a piece of cloth soaked in some intoxicant on her mouth, after
which she fainted." When Tabasum regained consciousness three men raped
her. She was told that she could be "saved" if she embraced
Islam and married one of the Muslims. According to APMA, "On
refusing, Sara was beaten badly during captivity and shifted to another house
... where five persons raped her. She was repeatedly asked to embrace Islam and
recite (the) Islamic creed to save herself from the misery but refused.

a Muslim man, Saed Sadek Mahmoud. After Suhir failed to return home from
school, her distraught father rushed to Abu-Tisht police station to report the
incident, but instead of assisting him, a police officer began assaulting
Suhir’s father…beating and cursing him. Three days later, Suhir’s father and
brother returned to the police station to ask for help and they were subjected
to the same abuse, as a result of which the father had to be admitted to
treatment. Suhir herself managed to escape, but was recaptured “and beaten

It is interesting that in the

leave their children without a mother? Or would she kill herself in order
to protect them?

Some religions portray women are
as sources of evil temptation. This has led to rules forcing women to
cover themselves. Olivier Guitta in an article titled Veiled
Threat (frontpagemag.com 4/4/05) wrote:
Muslim French women who wear the hijab are forced to do so by their family or
because of pressure from the community. In many testimonies young women have
stated that they were wearing it not to be "bothered" by the men in
their community. There were multiple cases in the suburbs of Paris of gang
rapes of women who were too "Westernized".
An official report dealing with religious expression
in French schools has become a must read for anyone interested in the
Islamization of France. Written under the auspices of the top national
education official, Jean-Pierre Obin, the report was not initially released by
the Ministry of Education. But it was leaked on the Internet in March and now
can be found in its entirety at www.proche-orient.info and other websites...
biggest social change entailed by this Islamization, Obin reports, is a
deterioration in the position of females. Teenage girls are forbidden to play
sports and are constantly watched by an informal religious police made up of
young men, sometimes their own younger brothers. Makeup, skirts, and
form-fitting dresses are forbidden; dark, loose trousers are the strongly
recommended attire. To go to the blackboard in front of a class, some Muslim
girls put on long coats. Often, they are forced to wear the headscarf, or
hijab, and forbidden to frequent coed movie theaters, community centers, and
gyms, or even to go out at all on weekends...
the report records rampant "Judeophobia," to use the term in vogue in
France. Among even the youngest students, the term "Jew" has become
the all-purpose insult. .. Even more serious is the increase in assaults on
Jews or those presumed to be Jewish. Usually the assailants are Muslim
students. Sometimes the victims are, too: One Turkish high-school girl was
relentlessly harassed and bullied at school because her country is an ally of
for history, Muslim students object to its Judeo-Christian bias and blatant
falsehood. They loudly protest the Crusades, and commonly deny the Holocaust.
Under the circumstances, many teachers censor their own material, often
skipping entire topics, like the history of Israel or of Christianity. The
report cites one teacher who keeps a Koran on his desk for reference whenever a
thorny issue arises. It cites Muslim students who refuse to use the plus sign
in mathematics because it looks like a cross. Field trips, especially to
churches, cathedrals, and monasteries, are boycotted...
up, Obin explains his disturbing findings as the result primarily of
indoctrination orchestrated over years by international Muslim organizations.
From an early age, students are taught what to think, what to believe, and to
regard their school teachers as liars. The goal of the radical groups seeking
to segregate Muslim communities and denouncing integration as oppression, Obin
writes, is to take the Muslim residents of France out of the French nation and
make them think of themselves as part of the international Muslim community.

In short, according to Islam’s scriptures, Muhammad
was, well, a pervert: he used to suck on the tongues of young boys and
girls; he dressed in women’s clothing (and received “revelations” in this
state); he had at least 66 “wives”; Allah supposedly sent him special
“revelations” allowing him to have sex with his step-daughter-in-law, Zainab,
and to have more wives than the rest of Muslims; he constantly dwelt and
obsessed over sex—his first question to a “talking donkey” was if the latter
“liked sex”—and he painted a very lurid and lusty picture of paradise,
where, according to some top Muslim interpreters, Muslims will be “busy
deflowering virgins” all day; and he had sex with a dead woman. There is
more, but why dwell on such shameful things? Again, I stress, it is not I
who maintains this but rather Islam’s own books—much, of course, not known
to non-Arabic readers, as they have never been translated (except, as I
understand, by some heroes at a website called Jihad Watch).
When asked to pinpoint some
scriptures Botros replied:
According to the Koran alone (33:37), Allah made it
legitimate for Muhammad to marry his own daughter-in-law, whom he lusted
after. A few verses later (33:50), Allah made it legitimate for Muhammad to
have sex with any woman who “offered” herself to him—a privilege which was
allowed for Muhammad alone. Indeed, these “revelations” which granted
Muhammad all his sexual desires were so frequent that his child-wife, Aisha,
would often say to Muhammad, “My, your Lord is always quick to fulfill your
desires!” And to his faithful followers, Muhammad permitted all the infidel
woman that they could capture, as concubines (Koran 4:3). All this is from
the Koran alone; it would take several hours just to go over the hadiths and
sira accounts dealing with the sexual perversions of Muhammad. In fact, I
have devoted numerous episodes dealing specifically with Muhammad’s sexual
depravities—including his sleeping with a dead woman, have a fetish for the
smell of menstruation blood, dressing in women’s clothing, and so forth.

According to the Sun:
On her 14th birthday a formal wedding ceremony was held, marking the
bride’s transition from her parents’ home to the home of the husband.
At six the next morning, terrified for her future, she was bundled on to a
plane to Pakistan. She was told she would return to England with her
husband when she reached 16. She used to dread evenings when she would
have to tearfully face the advances of her husband. The marriage was
eventually consummated against her will after she suffered a horrific
beating. After three months it was decided she should live under lock
and key back in England until she turned 16.

scuffles broke out between firemen and members of the Commission for the

girls inside a burning school in Mecca. Fifteen girls were killed as they
stampeded to escape from the blazing building in the holy Muslim city.
The Telegraph reported that a civil defense officer said that he saw three
members of the religious police "beating young girls to prevent them from
leaving the school because they were not wearing the abaya."
According to Jonathan Foreman of the New York Post 3/25/02 the religious police

Gamal Ibrahim issued a fatwa. calling for Kola Boof to be beheaded, after a
Shariah court in London's Islamic community declared her guilty of
"deliberately and maliciously bearing false witness against religious
sentiment and of willing treason against her Arab Muslim father's people and
against her nation, the Sudan."
Kola Boof was born in Omdurman,
which is part of north Khartoum, in the Sudan. She was about 10 to 12
years of age – there are no records of her birth – when her Egyptian father and
Somali mother were slaughtered in their backyard in 1978 by Arab Murahleen
bandits for speaking out too openly about the coming Arab regime.
She said she is familiar with
the kind of atrocities recounted by ex-slave Frances Bok, who stood with
President Bush as he signed the Sudan Peace Act on Oct. 21.

As a child, she said she
witnessed a woman with six daughters who could not bear a son be rolled up in
her dowry carpet and burned alive after gasoline was poured on her.
After the fatwa was issued
against her Kola Boof said:
a black African woman, I cannot and will not be silent as black men in Arab
nations are chained up like dogs to the back doors of Muslim households and
fed, literally, from doggie bowls. I will not be silent as African women
are raped, mutilated and mentally demeaned by sadistic human beings calling
themselves children of Allah. I will not be silent as the number of little
black boys who are sodomized by their Arab masters continues to soar, while
even worse atrocities attend the lives of little black girls.
According to the National Review
Dec 23, 02, Osama Bin Laden told Kola Boof in a 1988 telephone conversation:
I had the time to waste, I would slit your throat myself.
On Thursday Nov. 7 02, a handful of
demonstrators gathered on Boof's behalf in front of the Sudanese Embassy in
Washington, D.C., and outside the United Nations building in New York City.
Publicists for the event included Sudan
activist Maria Sliwa, who said only about a dozen showed up.
Intimidation by the Sudanese
Embassy and by people claiming to be members of Louis Farrakhan's Nation of
Islam scared away others who wanted to protest
Another demonstration, in Los
Angeles, had to be canceled, Boof said, "because the organizer was so
terrified about Farrakhan's people calling her that she pulled out."
The belief that women are
sources of evil temptation has encouraged the widespread practice of female
every 15 seconds another woman has surgery performed on her clitoris
so that she won't be able to be sexually aroused and so will be less likely to
commit adultery or premarital sex. David Horowitz gave a
lecture at the University of California Santa Barbara said:
“One hundred forty
million Muslim girls in Muslim countries have their genitals sliced off
every year so they can’t enjoy sex,”
According to the Shafi school of Islamic law,
which is followed by Somalis (among others), it is an
obligation to “circumcise” girls. According to the Islamic legal
manual 'Umdat al-Salik e4.3
"Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting
off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but
circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr 'clitoris' [this is
called khufaadh 'female circumcision'])." -- Mark Durie, The Third Choice,
Muslims are the principal religious group that practice female circumcision. In
Egypt, for instance, 97 percent of women are circumcised. Their clitorises are
amputated. In countries like Sudan, meanwhile, the women-haters are not so
kind: all the women’s external genital organs are completely removed. In a
savagery called infibulation, the clitoris, the two major outer lips (labia
majora) and the two minor inner lips (labia minora) are amputated.
El Saadawi has documented these horrifying realities in The
Hidden Face of Eve: Women in the Arab World. She demonstrates
how the violence of female circumcision is performed on girls anywhere from the
ages of one month to puberty. Usually, it is done around the age of seven or
eight. Anesthetics are never used. The child is pinned down by several women,
while one of them attacks.
The parliament of Iraqi Kurdistan passed a
bill against domestic violence and female genital mutilation. An Imam
blaming the Jews:
(This bill is) to satisfy the Jews who in the
conference of the Jews in Beijing discussed that female circumcision should
be banned. You obey their orders and disregard the Sharia of Allah (...).
The reality: five hundred girls’ genitals are mutilated
every year in Britain. Not one arrest. Not one incarceration.
You think protecting little girls’ genitals is more important nowadays
than protecting oneself from the charge of being Islamophobic? Think again.
Islamic women haters, therefore, are reigning free in Britain. Enraged
at even the thought of female sexuality, the self-appointed guardians of
Islamic purity make sure to obliterate the clitorises of little girls before
the girls begin to get the concept of their own human agency and the magic
of love. In a fascistic effort to deny women even the possibility of
personal happiness, individuality and sexual satisfaction, these mutilators
start cutting girls at the age of seven or eight—before their menstrual
periods begin—so that their sexuality will be amputated forever.
At least 40% of the migrant
girls whose parents come from mutilating ethnic countries and groups are
submitted to FGM. Here in Europe. They are sent to the countries of origin
for that purpose, especially during holidays, or get their genitalia cut off
at their homes by imported mutilators.
Within the high-risk groups, for instance Muslim immigrants from Somalia, it
is still worse: The average of mutilated girls here in Europe ranges as high
as 70 to 80%. Hege Storhaug from the Norwegian organisation “Human Rights
Services,” who managed to gain deeper insight to what is going on in the
Somali communities in Norway, brings it to the point by stating that we have
to deal with “a new dimension of organized crime”.
FGM is a
growing problem in the United States as well.
for instance, records the Prophet Muhammad emphasizing that circumcising girls
is “a preservation of honor for women.” A legal manual of the Shafi'i school of
Islamic jurisprudence, 'Umdat al-Salik, which is endorsed by Al-Azhar
University of Cairo -- the oldest and most prestigious university in the Islamic
world -- states that circumcision is obligatory for both boys and girls. (‘Umdat al-Salik,
e4.3). Sheikh Al-Azhar
[Grand Sheikh Sayyad Tantawi]president of the largest and oldest
Islamic University in the world has
said, according to Geneive Abdo, author of No God But God: Egypt and the Triumph
of Islam, that female circumcision is “a laudable practice that [does] honor to
women.” When David Littman denounced female genital mutilation, the

6/25/08) So much for women's rights.
In another article Sexual Amputation
and Silence (frontpagemag.com
12/2/04) Jamie Glazov explained the motivation for female circumcision as
impulse behind this savagery is clear: the hatred of women and the
terrifying fear of their sexuality. Demonizing female sexual desire and
pleasure -- and annihilating it -- becomes the priority. To successfully
achieve female genital mutilation, therefore, the mutilators have to legitimize
and institutionalize it. As a result, they socially construct the pathological
ideology that a girl’s genital area is “dirty” and, therefore, unacceptable. In
an uncircumcised girl is considered nigsa (unclean). The way she becomes
non-nigsa is to have her clitoris sliced off. In Sudan, the term used for getting
rid of the clitoris is tahur -- which means “cleansing” or “purification.”..
genital mutilation produces the oxygen that Islamic fundamentalism needs
to breathe. It helps militant Islam keep intact the foundation on which its
life depends: the subjugation and enslavement of women under a rigid system of
hint of opposition to mutilation is consistently met with furious
resistance from Islamic clerics, who fervently emphasize that female genital
mutilation is Allah’s will and point to the Prophet’s sanctioning of
female circumcision in the hadiths to prove it. Umdat al-Salik, e4.3,
therefore, a manual of Shafi'i Islamic law, which is endorsed by
Al-Azhar University of Cairo, Egypt (the oldest and most prestigious university
in the Islamic world), states that circumcision is obligatory for both men
prominent Egyptian Sheikh Mustafa Al-Azhari is one of the heroes of the
pro-mutilation movement. He has led the way by insisting, among other things,
that the attempt to stop female genital mutilation is a Western conspiracy
designed to spread promiscuity among Muslims. For him, the Egyptian media’s
attempt to stop female circumcision is a “crime.” Surgical specialist at
Al-Azhar University, Dr. Muhammad Rif'at Al-Bawwab, meanwhile, puts it more
simply: the pleasure that women derive from the clitoris is simply just
unnatural and abnormal -- and leads to moral degradation.
In Denmark, Imam Mustafa
Abdullahi Aden said that female circumcision was a religious duty. The
New York Sun writes that (11/14/02):
said:"It is good for girls to be circumcised. It is a sign that they
are true Muslims." He recommended a method which involves the
removal of both the clitoris and labia.
Ironically Islamic theology which
preaches that women are trouble, makes women into an evil temptation to kill
the infidel, by preaching that men who die in Jihad or holy war will have
virgins in heaven. In the terror guide used by the hijackers who crashed
planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Sept. 11, the following
Also, do not seem confused or show signs of nervous
tension. Be happy, optimistic calm because you are heading for a deed that God
loves and will accept [as a good deed]. It will be the day, God willing, you
spend with the women of paradise...Know that the gardens of paradise are
waiting for you in all their beauty, and the women of paradise are waiting,
calling out, "Come hither, friend of God." They have dressed in their
most beautiful clothing.
In a memo in Mohammed
Atta's luggage(the pilot of the first plane that hit the World Trade
Center (New York Post Oct 3, 01 p38)) the following was written:
Apply the rules of the prisoners of war. Take
them prisoner and kill them as God said. The nymphs are calling out to
you, come over here, companion of Allah.

This use of sex
by Islam to incite violence was understood by Thomas Aquinas who in Summa
Contra Gentiles, described Islam as a false and dangerous religion, which

a "fabrication" of Mohammed's own, and seduces "people by

Yet Muslims see
themselves as moral and the West as corrupt when it comes to women. One
example of this outlook was the reaction of Muslims to a newspaper article
about an upcoming Miss World pageant to be held Dec. 7 02 in the Nigerian
capital, Abuja. Muslim groups say beauty pageants promotes sexual
promiscuity and indecency. A journalist, Isioma Daniel tried to defend
the pageant and wrote in the article:

honesty, he would probably have chosen a wife from among them (the

In response to Isioma's article, violent demonstrators in the northern city of
Kaduna burned churches and rampaged through the streets. Angry Muslims
shouting "Down with Beauty" and "Allahu Akbar", rioted and
stabbed and set fire to bystanders. About 175 people were killed
and injured. This continued until hundreds of soldiers were
deployed to restore calm and enforce a dusk-to-dawn curfew. (fresnoBee.com

Part of the irony of all of this is
that the Koran describes Muhammad as having more than a dozen wives and
concubines and as having sex with a slave and of marrying a 9 year old girl by
the name of Aisha. Muslims have no problem with this.
Nonie Darwish wrote:
There is no age limit for marriage of girls under
Sharia. A man can pay a dowry and sign a marriage contract with parents of a
toddler girl and consummate the marriage at age 9. Recent cases in Yemen and
Saudi Arabia exposed this tragedy when 8-year-old girls filed for divorce
from their over 50-year-old husbands. Not one Muslim authority challenged
the Saudi marriage high official, Dr. Ahmad Al Mubi, who stated in 2008, in
an interview that aired on LBC TV: “There is no minimal age for entering
marriage. The Prophet Muhammad is the model we follow.”

book Saudi Arabia Exposed exposes some of the bizarreness of Muslim
morality.According to the book:
“When they lived in Florida preparing their attack,
some of the Saudi hijackers had draped a cloth over a framed print of a woman
in their room, their Wahhabi upbringing making them despise this image of the
human form. They also frequently hung out on the balcony overlooking
their apartment pool, eyeing up the sunbathing girls in bikinis.
Other of the hijackers frequented strip clubs in Boston, made phone calls to
escort services, and paid prostitutes for sex...”
Young Saudis are given to saying that screwing
Western women is not religiously forbidden in Islam, because, since they are
"infidels," they do not come into the moral scheme of things.
The Muslim world
is so insane that although it engages in horrific oppression of women, King of
Saudi Arabia fired the minister of information because a cartoon passed the
censors in which Mickey Mouse gave Minnie a little peck. (Serge Trifkovic, The

Beauty is not the only thing
that enrages Jihadists. Love does as well. Walid Phares in an
article titled Valentine's

A weekend before Valentine's Day, Jihadi souls
were not questioning the “commercialization” of romance, but inquiring about
the ban on “being in love.” The “scholars” said human love is evil. The simple
feeling of being attracted to or in love with someone is a terrifying sin if it
is committed outside of dogma. And it warrants serious punishment.
“Al Hub” (basic love) -- said one of the scholars online -- “is not
permissible outside commitment to Jihad.” The subject was new, overwhelming to
the al Qaida sympathizers who were dodging the “decadent feeling.”

Day. The Commission on the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice,
otherwise known as the Religious Police, even banned the color red on
February 14th because of its association with the holiday.
Buying, selling, wearing, or displaying anything red including red roses,
clothes, wrapping paper, teddy bears and gift boxes were all illegal on this
holiday for those in love. A few days prior to Valentine’s Day, flower shops
and other stores were warned that they must remove all red items from their
shelves. The Religious Police made it clear that they were going to monitor
the stores on Valentine’s Day to ensure they were not shelving anything
displaying the forbidden color. The holiday is illegal because it is
considered “un-Islamic”. Government authorities let it be known that they
were not going to tolerate any public displays of affection on February
14th. Though they claimed that Valentine’s Day promotes prohibited relations
between unmarried men and women, public expressions of affection between
married couples on that date was equally prohibited.
