Shari’a’s War On Women
Accuracy in Academia ^ | April 27, 2012 | Malcolm A. Kline

There is a war on women but it is not being perpetrated by the Catholic Church. Rather, the religious aggression comes from an aspect of radical Islam that textbooks treat with respect, if they address it at all.

“The guidance of the Qur’an and Sunna was assembled in a body of law known as shari’a (shah-REE-ah),” the McDougal Littell/Houghton Mifflin, World History – Patterns of Interaction informs students. “This system of law regulates the family life, moral conduct, and business and community life of Muslims.”

“The textbook is correct in stating that Shari’a law is derived from the Qur’an and the Sunna,” author Brigitte Gabrielle’s group ACT! for America found. “However, the textbook’s explanation of the breadth of Shari’a law understates its control over all aspects of human thought and behavior, from intensely personal matters to government laws to universal beliefs.”

“ Further, Shari’a also imposes elements of Islamic law on all non-Muslims living in lands conquered and controlled by Muslims. The textbook also fails to inform students that Shari’a is grossly discriminatory towards non-Muslims and women.”

ACT! for America reviewed 38 textbooks published between 1991 and 2011 for its report, Education or Indoctrination? The Treatment of Islam in 6th through 12th Grade Textbooks. “Perhaps the most severe discriminatory legal disability imposed on Muslim women by Islamic Shari’a law is the reduced value assigned to their testimony in an Islamic legal proceeding,” ACT! for America notes. “In order to ‘account for differences’ in the mental abilities of men and women, the Qur’an specifies that the testimony of one man is worth the testimony of two women, ‘So if one of [the women] errs, The other can remind her.’”

"Shari’a’s War On Women"?

Not even !!! Women are 'LOVED' so much over there that the Saudi's have just passed a law that men can "make love" to their wives up to six hours after the wife has died.

Sounds sooooo exciting. Wonder if the men get any response from the woman after a couple of hours of foreplay and whispering in their ear?

Also, wonder when they will pass a law saying the men can MAKE LOVE to their camel up to six hours after he/she dies?

What these savages do with their women is of no interest to me.
