Worried About Islam – You Should Be!

Someone just sent me an e-mail about the changes in the Muslim world over the past fifty years, and it is an eye-opener. It features photo’s about the changes that have come about regarding women in the Muslim world, and identifies clearly their increased subjugation over the last fifty years. See what you think.

In Iran under the Shah in 1970 life was good for all concerned, especially the women as you see here:

Then came the Islamic revolution, and look at it today!

Makes you think doesn’t it! Much the same has happened in Afghanistan as you can see here with a photo dated sometime in 1967 and then today.

And now today:

Egypt is known as a secular nation today, but the changes in the woman’s dress code has had its influence here too. This first picture was taken in 1959.

But today:

2012

However, if you consider this is only restricted to Arab countries you would be wrong. Take a look at Holland in 1980 and now:

And now today:

ATT00001

Life for the women of Islam has changed drastically over the last fifty years as the strict Muslim code for women has been enforced by Muslim men. Even those living in western countries have seen the domination of the Muslim male strangle their freedoms. It is in my view a crime that the freedoms enjoyed by these people fifty years ago have been snuffed out like a candle, and they are now forced to live as little more than slaves to their male masters.

The sad thing is, unless the people of the west wake up and take note of what is going on in our own backyard, this will in years to come apply to us as well.

100 Lashes? The Shame of Islam

Posted in Arab, Child Abuse, Children, Human Rights, Muslim, Religion, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 30/03/2013 by floroy1942

These days there are countless disgraceful miscarriages of justice all over the world, but few have the repugnance of a case in the Maldives where a 15 year-old girl has been sentenced to 100 lashes by a Muslim Sharia Court, after she was repeatedly raped by her stepfather over a number of years. There is no question of the man’s guilt, or the complicity of the child’s mother.

Paradise? - Look Deeper

Paradise? – Look Deeper

We all know the island chain as a dream holiday destination, but it is clear it has a dark side to it. The Maldives legal system is based on a mixture of Muslim Sharia and English common law,  and all who live there are subject to it. Sharia, the barbaric code of law peculiar to the Muslim faith, has for years been responsible for atrocities across the world in the name of justice, and because it is so embedded in the Muslim faith, is unlikely to change.

The girl in question was repeatedly raped by her stepfather over a number of years, and fell pregnant when she was fourteen. To keep everything secret, her mother removed the girl from school until the baby was born. The stepfather killed the newborn and buried the body in the back yard, and the rapes continued. All three were arrested in June last year when during an investigation, the police found the body. In court the man was found guilty and sentenced. The mother is also facing charges.

It came out in court that the girl had consensual premarital sex with another man, which for women is against Sharia Law. Subsequently, the court ordered she undergo eight months of house arrest and was forced to serve it in a children’s home. When reaching the age of eighteen, she will also receive 100 lashes for premarital sex. It is not enough that this young girl has for years suffered humiliation at the hands of her stepfather, given birth at the tender age of fourteen, and could not even turn to her mother for solace, but now she must undergo the shame and humiliation of a flogging.

The girl is not the only one to receive such punishment in the Maldives for in 2012, a 16-year-old was lashed for the ‘crime’, and in 2009 a pregnant 18-year-old received 100 lashes for having sex with two different men.

This present case is another example of cruel injustice within the Muslim world where Sharia dictates a harsh system of law that is out of place in a modern world.

Alleged Unfaithful Wife

Alleged Unfaithful Wife

Muslims have for centuries twisted and manipulated them to suit their own purposes, and as a prime example, husbands can get rid of unwanted wives just by accusing them of adultery, whereby they are stoned to death.

Rape is endemic in many Muslim countries, where men consider it their right to violate a women whenever they please, for those of the female sex are there only to serve them. It is a matter of record that in the past three years no cases of rape have reached a satisfactory conclusion in the islands, and already this year three cases have been reported. It is said that one third of Maldives women have at one time or another been sexually assaulted.

It brings shame on Muslims world-wide when women can be raped at will and no man is punished for the crime, but a young girl of fifteen, a rape victim herself, receives 100 lashes for pre-marital sex. It just goes to prove what I have always thought, women are nothing more than objects to Muslim men, to be owned and used as they think fit.

I rather think that if The Prophet were ever to return, he would condemn every one of them to hell.

The Inhumanity Of Sharia Law

Posted in Afghanistan, Arab, Britain, Child Abuse, Human Rights, Muslim, Sharia Law, Taliban, UK, USA with tags , , , on 01/03/2013 by floroy1942

Like millions of others, I was shocked when three years ago I read about the mutilation of a young Afghanistan girl whose husband had cut off her nose and ears as punishment for

running away from his abusive family while he was away fighting with the Taliban. Such a tragic story is almost beyond belief, but like so many unbelievable things, it happened.

After Surgery

Now after three years the girl Aesha Mohammadzai, now a young woman, has a new nose. It is a modern success story that will gladden the heart of many, for she will no longer have to bear the despicable scars of her inhuman treatment at the hands of her husband.

This is just one of the horror stories that emerge on a regular basis from Islamic nations that carry the torch for this despicable form of justice. We condemned with all our power the barbaric acts of the Nazi’s with their death camps so long ago, but it is evident that in the Islamic world, barbarity is still common practice. It is embedded in Islamic culture, for it forms an integral part of their religion. We in the west can do nothing to stop this barbarity under those circumstances. We must stand by on the sidelines until the Islamic people themselves decide to change.

The dangerous side to this ideology, is that they want to subjugate the western world with it too, and have Sharia Law imposed in every country across the globe. They will never achieve this of course, but they will willingly die trying. You could argue that the people of the western world will never bow down to this disgraceful rule of law, but on the other hand, the rule of the gun is a powerful persuader.

To Be Stoned To Death

To Be Stoned To Death

By far the worst perpetrators are the jihad groups like the Taliban, who interpret Sharia to suit their own ends. They have been guilty of hundreds of atrocities during the time they held power in Afghanistan, and still do it today when they descend on villages, even though they are a hunted group. They have disfigured women with acid and beaten women half to death for so-called infractions of the strict laws that women must submit to in the Islamic world. A woman only needs to be accused of adultery for them to bury her up to the waist and have the villagers throw stones at her until she dies. Many husbands have used this excuse to get rid of unwanted wives.

Public Hanging

Public Hanging

Even in the state of Saudi Arabia there have been instances of public beheadings, and in others, criminals and homosexuals are hung from any convenient lamp-post or crane in full public view.

The plight of women in Arabic states is particularly distressing however, for they have no redress against whatever they are accused of. Women are, more often than not, chattels with less standing than the village dog, and are wholly dependent on the goodwill of their menfolk. A daughter has no choice but to obey to the letter what her father tells her and must marry whoever he chooses.

American Honour Killings

American Honour Killings

There have been numerous cases of young women, and even children, who have been slaughtered by their parents for doing things like talking to a boy without a chaperone. Even the UK and America have had cases where young women have been murdered for wearing inappropriate clothing i.e. western attire, or refusing to marry their father’s choice. In some instances a father will promise his daughter to someone to pay off a debt, such is the depths to which these people will stoop.

Until the women of the Arab world stand united and demand their rights as human beings, things will never change in this barbaric society, and the women in particular will continue to suffer.

Where Women Are A Target For Abuse

Posted in Arab, Child Abuse, Human Rights, Modern World, Muslim, Religion, UK, USA with tags , , , , , on 09/02/2013 by floroy1942

In the West we have Human Rights Laws to protect women, and we have other laws that make it illegal for any man to force his intentions on a woman, but sadly, this is not so everywhere. Ever since the tragic episode in December last year of a young medical student who was gang-raped on a bus in New Delhi, the plight of women in this mostly Hindu nation has been brought to the fore. As we all now know, she was repeatedly raped for over an hour and then thrown from the bus like a piece of garbage and left to die.

This terrible incident has given impetus to the Indian government to begin putting laws in place to protect the rights of women, however, it remains to be seen how successful this will be. In India rape is a widespread problem as men seem to think that women can be abused at will and there will be no repercussions, which is often true.

Child Forced Labour Is Widespread

It is also sad to note that child rape and general abuse is also endemic in the country. Many children as young as five are forced into slave labour. According to Indian government sources one in two children suffer abuse at some time or other, and more to the point, most cases go unreported so the actual number is far higher.

In other cases, many Egyptian women have been raped and molested in public by large crowds of men in Tahrir Square in Cairo, scene of many demonstrations. Most notable was the recent incident where a woman had her clothes ripped off and was groped by a very large group of men. There have been at least three cases where western women have been attacked in the square by gangs of up to a hundred men, had their clothes ripped off, and while no actual rape was committed, they were subjected to abuse the likes of which are difficult to imagine.

So what does this kind of attitude towards women tell us? It is well known that in the Muslim world women are second-class citizens, and to put it in a ‘nutshell’, are put on Earth only to serve men. In some countries the strict laws regarding woman have been somewhat relaxed, but sadly not all.

Trapped - With No Way Out

Trapped – With No Way Out

In the strictest Muslim countries women are required to wear the infamous burka which covers them from head to toe. The following is from the Quran: “O Prophet! Tell your wives and daughters and the believing women that they should draw over themselves their jilbab (outer garments) (when in public); this will be more conducive to their being recognized (as decent women) and not harassed. But God is indeed oft-forgiving, most merciful. (33:59)” While this text does not specifically say that women must cover themselves from head to foot, it has been interpreted as such because otherwise women will “inflame the passions of men”! It would seem many Muslim men think of nothing but sex and have a difficult time controlling themselves, as the sight of even a small amount of female skin will get their blood racing!

In India there is much the same feeling that women are there to serve men, and a man can do as he pleases without fear of retribution. Although the government is trying to put laws in place to protect women and children from abuse, I fear it will have little effect, because like the Muslim world it is part of their culture, and it will take much more than a few laws to bring about change. Among the ‘Laws Concerning Women in Manu-Smriti’ (Hindu Scriptures) can be found the following: “13.1 (women will be) Always dependent 13.2  (she will always) Worship and obey (her) husband 5.148 In childhood a female must be subject to her father, in youth to her husband, when her lord is dead to her sons; a woman must never be independent”. So you see that women have very little chance of being better off with the passage of new laws introduced by the government.

It is pretty much the same with both Muslims and Hindu’s that women have little or no rights as human beings except to serve their masters, i.e. their husbands. Laws will not change this fact. It becomes evident that both religions have a lot to learn in this day and age. 

Another Reason For Banning the Burka

Posted in Afghanistan, Arab, Britain, Europe, Human Rights, Immigration, Islamic Revolution, Justice, Modern World, Muslim, Parliament, Police, Police Complaints, Political Correctness, Prison, Religion, Sharia Law, Traffic, UK, UN, USA with tags , , , , on 16/01/2011 by floroy1942

Debate has been extensive over whether democratic nations should ban the burka, following the example of France. A very recent occurrence in Australia highlights the need for all western nations to take action on this subject.

The Burka Hides All!

A burka clad woman was pulled over by an Australian policeman for not having her provisional number plates displayed correctly. What ensued was outrageous, and were it not for a video camera running in the back of the police car, the constable could have had his life and career ruined by the woman who claimed he was racist. She claimed he pulled her over because she was wearing a burka and accused him of trying to remove her face covering.

On being released she went to the local media with her story and also filed a complaint against the policeman for racism. When the case went to court, the film was shown and the constable exonerated. The woman then claimed, through her lawyer, it was not her in the car but someone else.

Thankfully justice was served, for the judge did not believe her and it is said she could serve six months in prison.

You can see the full report using the following link:

Which One is My Wife?

The whole episode does however indicate that Muslim women can use the veil as a refuge from justice by the very fact they cannot be identified with certainty. This is wrong in our open society and should not be allowed.

Who Knows What the Burka Hides!

Muslims claim religious grounds for covering their women’s faces and I have no objection to that, but when they live in our society they should live by our rules. Everyone here is readily identifiable from facial features, but where the burka is concerned, even a man can wear one and pass himself off as a woman. This is wrong and it is time to put an end to this farce.

Crazy! You Couldn’t Make It Up – Series 1 Episode 8

Posted in Arab, Britain, England, Gays, Homosexuals, Human Rights, Insanity, Iran, Justice, Modern World, Muslim, Police, Prison, Theft, UK, World War 2 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 18/05/2010 by floroy1942

Read the news and there is no end to the quirky items about people and events. The last couple of weeks is no exception as you will see if you read on.

I Lui Take Thee…

The ‘Pet Crazies’ are everywhere, you know the type. They lavish love and affection on their dogs and cats like they are their own children, and spend outrageous amounts of money to provide them with all sorts of costly gifts from diamond-studded collars to ridiculously expensive grooming at bespoke salons. Nothing wrong with that I hear you say, and I agree, because the pet obviously fills a gap in these people’s lives. This story though, topped the lot for strangeness when a Brazilian couple spent £6,000 to get their dogs ‘married‘! The bride Bruna, and the groom Lui apparently barked their vows and set a paw print on the official document. Believe it or not, the ‘bride wore a ‘stunning’ gown costing £270 while the groom was correctly attired in a tuxedo. They even had a special ‘doggy’ cake made with loving care and wolfed down in seconds. The next thing to be planned is a honeymoon for the two love-dogs which is expected to take place in July, because then the bride will be in heat! That should be one helluva honeymoon! Down Boy! Down!!!

Hoorn Prison

The Dutch have some strange habits, I should know I lived there for thirty years, but recently a story came out of Holland that beggars belief. In the town of Hoorn, near Amsterdam, thieves broke into, yes that’s right, into a prison and stole the inmates t.v’s while they were away for the weekend. The crazy thing is, it happened not once, but twice in a period of six weeks, the second time they set off an alarm but still got away. Prison officials are totally baffled as to how the burglars got in and out again with the t.v.’s without being noticed by staff. Mind you, if I know ‘Cloggyland’, I’ll bet the guards were probably watching football on the TV, and that’s why theirs didn’t get pinched!!!

Modern Iranian Girl

Iran is said to be the most earthquake prone zone in the Middle East, and a senior Iranian cleric Hojatoleslam Kazem Sidiqhi has finally found out why! According to him woman are to blame for the earthquakes in Iran! This ‘learned’ gentleman has been quoted by an Iranian newspaper as saying during a prayer meeting; “Many women who do not dress modestly…lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society increase earthquakes.” My goodness, I bet he thought long and hard over that one! He is of course hitting out at the younger generation of Muslim women who do not follow the strict dress code of Islam, i.e. covering themselves from head to toe. Many today wear tight jeans and have their face uncovered, much to the disgust of devout Muslims and their clergy. Hence perhaps the rather novel notion these ‘loose’ women cause earthquakes. I can’t believe his followers take him seriously, but they do. I guess seismologists world-wide can start looking for alternative work because this guy has answered all their questions!!!

Sorry! Call This Number

If someone damages your car, naturally you would think the correct thing to do is go to the police station and report it; Right? Wrong! Not in Hessle near Hull in England. That is what Andy Bevan did when someone slashed his tyres, but when he got to the police station he was given a card and told to ring the Command Centre because they could not deal with it. To make matters worse, while he was outside using his mobile, a policeman came out and told him he could use a phone inside the station. It’s the same old story in the UK these days, you can never find a copper when you need one, and when you do, he can’t do anything because he is only there to fill in forms, but not the one pertaining to your case!!!

Here You Are Miss Er…!

Once more the ‘Human Rights’ issue has raised its ugly head in Britain with a transsexual suing the NHS because they will not give ‘her’ a boob job! Born a man, ‘C’ has been on hormone treatment since 1996 but it failed to provide, according to ‘her’, with adequate breasts. So ‘she’ wants an operation on the NHS to enlarge them before undergoing a sex change operation. The NHS refused, saying the requested treatment was purely cosmetic. ‘C’ claims not having the operation will leave her ‘between sexes’ and is causing her stress, so now ‘she’ is playing the Human Rights card with a battery of lawyers before the High Court. Big or small breasts, I hope ‘she’ never gives me the ‘come on’!!!

Unrepentant – Tohseef Shah

Once again, the farce that is the British justice system failed spectacularly recently when a young Muslim was arrested and charged for scrawling Islamic slogans like “Islam will dominate the world” on a WW2 monument in the town of Burton-on-Trent. The graffiti praised Osama bin Laden and threatened the Prime Minister (Gordon Brown) with death but, surprise, surprise, the Crown Prosecution Service considered the graffiti to be; “Not racially motivated.” This, according to the CPS, is because a Judge ruled; “Christian beliefs had no right of protection under British law (No! Only Islamic).” The offender, Tohseef Shah was therefore not prosecuted under the more serious charge of inciting religious hatred and got off with a two-year conditional discharge and a fine of £500 to pay for the clean-up job, this despite him showing no remorse at his actions. Needless to say, veterans are fuming at the ruling.  I think our forefathers must be thinking; Sod it! What was the point???

You know what they say: “Life’s a bitch and then you die!” More to come!

France and the Muslim Veil

Posted in Afghanistan, Arab, Britain, England, Gaza and Hamas, Human Rights, Immigrants, Insurgents, Muslim, Taliban, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/02/2010 by floroy1942

No or Yes?

So finally a European country is starting to take a stand against the Muslim veil, and its about time! This week France refused citizenship to a Muslim male because he forced his wife to wear the Islamic Burka which covers a woman from head to toe, including the eyes. The French Immigration Authorities refused the man because his wife did not have the right to appear in public with her face uncovered. Three cheers for France! So when is Harriet Harman, the Labour Women and Equality Minister going to get stuck in?

She has been extremely vocal on all things to do with women’s rights, and I don’t blame her for that, but this is something she has been silent about ever since she got the post. So why is that? The obvious reason that comes to mind is the current UK watchword; Don’t upset the Muslims!!!

It is a contentious subject because of its supposed religious overtones, but that is no answer for ignoring it. The Koran does not require women to cover themselves from head to foot, and no Muslim will find a passage that backs ups this bizarre practice.

If we examine the reasons for such draconian measures within Islam, we must come to the conclusion that it is something enforced by men for the sole purpose of subjugating women. In the Islamic world, women are second class citizens, and most Muslim men probably value their goats above their women.

I have a suspicion that it also has a lot to do with jealousy on the part of men, who do not want their women looked at by others. That woman should be forced to submit to this degradation in the name of religion in this day and age is nothing short of scandalous. It is totally alien to the western culture but has become accepted because of the influx of immigrants from Islamic countries.

Should we be forced to accept it on so-called religious grounds? I think not! With the increasing threat of terrorism from Muslim extremists, we are actively engaged in taking measures with our own people to ensure positive identification, but allow  Muslim women to walk among us covered from head to foot and not even knowing if the person under the garment is male or female.

We presume someone in a Burka is female, but for all we know, Osama Bin Laden could be living in downtown Bradford wearing a Burka in public.

Gotcha

The leader of Hamas was caught some months ago at the Egyptian border trying to enter the country in a Burka, and who knows how many other ‘Wanted’ individuals use the same trick to travel freely? Something else that should cause concern, and a good reason for banning the Burka, is the number of women suicide bombers that have shown up recently in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Under the current regulations there is nothing anyone can do to identify a woman bomber is there? Do we have to wait for a Muslim woman to step into a crowded place and blow herself up before the government takes action on this subject?

Immigration Authorities and the Police are in a sticky position when trying to determine if the person in front of them is who they say they are. If an Islamic woman refuses to lower her veil for religious reasons what do you do? Force them, or arrest them, and cause a possible international incident or religious outcry?

The Right to Choose?

It is time the rest of Europe followed the French lead and placed a blanket ban (sorry! Pun intended) on the Burka in all European countries. It serves no real purpose other than to satisfy the ego of Muslims males, and although many older Muslim women, who have never known anything different, will object, I am sure many of the younger ones will hail their new-found freedom. It comes down to this; if you live here, you respect our way of life. If you cannot do that, then go home!

So come on Harriet, how about it? Either do your job for all women, or don’t do it at all.

As-salamu Alaykum
