Jay Leno's wife: "The Qur'an is more liberal with women than the Bible"
Jihad Watch ^ | October 27, 2011 | Robert

Posted on 10/30/2011 10:18:32 AM PDT by dragonblustar

"Women's activist Mavis Leno and CNN Muslim producer dialogue in Dallas," by Dina Malki for the Examiner, October 24:

At the 26th annual Dallas Women’s Foundation’s luncheon, Mavis Leno, wife of talk show's comedian Jay Leno, shared with the audience accounts about her journey into activism to help empower Afghani women and girls under the Taliban regime....

When asked about the role of Islam in the status of women in Afghanistan, Leno confirmed that “the Quran is more liberal with women than the Bible.”

Leno is blaming the culture and not the religion but she forgets that Mohammed married a 9 year old. The culture and the religion are one.

She’s absolutely right!

The woman is an ignorant slut.

If she really believes that, let her go live in one of the Islamic paradises and attend the mosques to listen to the teaching from the Koran.

Then again, being the ignorant slut that she is, she probably still won’t get it.

They can’t be separated. Islam means submission. To EVIL.

The Koran:

Sura (2:191-193) - "And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution of Muslims is worse than slaughter of non-believers...and fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah."

Sura (4:74) - "Let those fight in the way of Allah who sell the life of this world for the other. Whoso fighteth in the way of Allah, be he slain or be he victorious, on him We shall bestow a vast reward."

Sura (4:76) - "Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…"

Sura (5:33) - "The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement"

Sura (8:12) - "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them"

Sura (8:39) - "And fight with them until there is no more persecution and religion should be only for Allah"

Sura (8:57) - "If thou comest on them in the war, deal with them so as to strike fear in those who are behind them, that haply they may remember."

Sura (9:14) - "Fight them, Allah will punish them by your hands and bring them to disgrace..."

Sura (9:29) - "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, even if they are of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued."

Sura (9:30) - "And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!"

Sura (9:123) - "O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness."

Sura (47:4) - "So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make them prisoners,"

Sura (61:4) - "Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way"

Sura (66:9) - "O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey's end

From the Hadith:

Muslim (1:33) - the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah

Bukhari (8:387) - Allah's Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah’”

Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, "Kill any Jew who falls under your power."

Ibn Ishaq: 327 - “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”

Ibn Ishaq: 992 - "Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah."

The Koran and hadiths are replete with examples of Muhammad's barbaric behavior. Robert Spencer does a good job here explaining Islam - Blogging the Qur’an Start at the bottom.

Leno's wife needs to open her eyes and look at the real world.

Christians and Jews have modern ethical religions. They're not at war with their neighbors ( unless their 'neighbors' are Islamic ), their women and children have basic human right and the laws are - for the most part - just. That's NOT how it is in Islamic cultures.

Leno's wife is blinded by ignorance of the real world.

A leading feminist in California, as well as in the United States and internationally, she keeps a low profile in comparison to her husband, choosing instead to work behind the scenes of the non-profit, politically-charged groups she supports and runs.

She has been the chair of the Feminist Majority Foundation’s Campaign to Stop Gender Apartheid in Afghanistan since 1997. In 1999, she and her husband, Jay Leno, donated $100,000 to the organization, to further the cause of educating the public about the plight of Afghan women under the Taliban.

The organization successfully protested the construction of an oil pipeline through Afghanistan, which could potentially have brought in billions of dollars to the Taliban.

According to Melissa Rossi, Mavis Leno was a driving force in changing the opinion of U.S. President Bill Clinton and the executives of the now defunct oil company Unocal Corporation concerning the Taliban, after Leno had shed light on the group’s heinous treatment of women.

The feminist organization with a hip Beverly Hills-adjacent headquarters — financed with the help of industry activist Peg Yorkin — now has a global reach and the plight of Afghan women is a particular focus. (The group also publishes Ms. Magazine). Shortly after the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan, Mavis and Jay Leno gave $100,000 to help jump-start the foundations’ global women’s rights program.

Mavis Leno had been involved with the Feminist Majority — founded in 1987 by former National Organization for Women President Eleanor Smeal and Yorkin — for some time and had become concerned about the Taliban’s often brutal discrimination against women. When Mavis Leno tried to interest news correspondents in the problem in the mid- to late 1990s, she hit a brick wall.

So she resolved to create a story that would appeal to people in an area she understood: the entertainment media. The entertainment media got it. And hard news reporters followed the stars as they — like the Magi — are prone to do.

I don’t really blame Leno 100%. This is the direct effect of the disinformation and revisionist activity of the MSM.

If you read leftist and MSM sites, they have no concept of what Christianity is. I read a book last year written by a leftist atheist, who went “undercover” at Falwell’s church and was shocked the people weren’t meeting in secret to kill and hate gays and such. They really are clueless, albeit sometimes wilfully so.

"...before faith came, we were kept under guard by the law, kept for the faith which would afterward be revealed. 24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after faith has come, we are no longer under a tutor.

26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

SS: Mavis says, from the bottom of her heart, “He could never disappoint me.”

ML: No, because I truly know him, and he truly knows me. I met Jay in 1976. I’ve known him—

JL: Over 33 years.

ML: It was in January—I don’t remember the day. But at the time I thought, Holy s—t! That comedian is gorgeous! I had gone to the Comedy Store with my girlfriend because I was writing comedy with some partners. Friends kept saying, “You have to hang out at the Comedy Store and the Improv—you’ll meet people who can give you jobs.” The first time I went, they sat us front row center—that means you’re this far from the comic. And there was Jay.

SS: Was that at the very beginning of your career, Jay?

JL: Yeah, pretty much. But the interesting thing is, I’ve probably lived with five women—and every one of them was born on the same day. I can look at a woman and go, “September 5.” I don’t know why that is. I don’t look for a woman born on September 5, I just wind up attracted to them.

ML: Just casually, he asked what my birthday was, and I said, “September 5.” He started laughing. I remember it so clearly. I said, “What?” And he said, “Aw, nothing.”

JL: I remember I had Cathy Guisewite [of the “Cathy” comic strip] on, and I said, “I’m happily married...don’t take this wrong...I am attracted to you but in an odd way. Were you born on or around September 5?” And she said, “Yes, on September 5.” I said, “Sorry, I’m not flirting,” and then I explained. It made me laugh.

ML: When he finished his act the night we met, I needed to go to the ladies’ room. What I didn’t know was in the Comedy Store back then, that area was the only place for the comedians to hang out. So when I came out of the bathroom, he said, “Are you that girl in front?” and I said, “Yes, that was me.”

Islam elevated the status of women from the state in which they were in pre-Islamic Arabia. The most important aspect was that of protection - women were to be protected. However, since Islam was regarded as "perfect and complete", there could be no progress beyond that point.

On the other hand, Christianity and Judaism regarded humans as imperfect, but capable of becoming more perfect. Christianity and Judaism adopted more modern ethical frameworks. Hence, the status of both women and men has progressed from that of Biblical times.

You probably should have let it go at “ignorant”, of course you could have thrown in stupid, because both of those are painfully obvious.

“Slut”, however may be a little over the top, I’m not saying it’s not true, just no evidence of that yet.

Dan always played the right wing hard guy, and Jane was the left wing air head.

But that was about 35 years ago, so maybe you are not familiar with it.
