Posted on 09/13/2004 7:57:35 AM PDT by MegaSilver
The media in the United States have been oddly fastidious in failing to report one aspect of last weeks horror in Beslan: that several Russian girls were raped by Muslim terrorists in front of their parents and classmates. The failure to report rapes in the Russian school was at odds with the eagerness of American journalists, a decade ago, to report ad nauseam on the entirely fictitious "rape camps" supposedly run by Bosnian Serbs in which Muslim women were allegedly subjected to similar degradation.
That Muslim propagandists and their Western abettors should have resorted to this particular whopper is especially galling in view of Islams encouragement of violence against women in general, and its explicit blessing of rape of captive non-Muslim women by Muslims in particular. The behavior of Chechen terrorists in Beslan, disgusting in every gory detail by the standards of civilized humanity, was justified by the tenets of Islam and by the personal example of the cults inventor, Muhammad.
Having established himself as the ruler of Medina, Muhammad attacked the Jewish tribe of Banu-l-Mustaliq in December of A.D. 626. His followers slaughtered many Jewish tribesmen and looted thousands of their camels and sheep. They also kidnapped 500 of their women. The night after the battle Muhammad and his brigands staged an orgy of rape. As one of the brigands, Abu Said Khudri, later remembered, a legal problem needed to be resolved first: In order to obtain ransom from the surviving Jews for the captive women, Muslims had pledged not to violate them:
We were lusting after women and chastity had become too hard for us, but we wanted to get the ransom money for our prisoners. So we wanted to use the Azl [coitus interruptus]. We asked the Prophet about it and he said: "You are not under any obligation not to do it like that."
Having ethnically cleansed and robbed of property all but one of three Jewish clans in Medina, in A.D. 627 Muhammad decided to deal with the last, Banu Qurayzah. He offered the men conversion as an alternative to death. Upon their unsurprising refusal, some 900exact numbers are unknownwere decapitated, one by one, in a ditch surrounding their encampment, in front of their women and children. Muhammads Einsatzgruppen worked hard: Torches had to be lit so that the slaughter could be accomplished in one day. The women, thus widowed or orphaned, were raped that same night. Muhammad chose as his concubine one Raihana bint Amr, whose father and husband were both slaughtered before her eyes only hours earlier. (Such treatment of the victims had been duly sanctioned by a prophetic revelation in the Kuran.)
In his early years, as a powerless and often ridiculed outsider in Mecca, Muhammad had enumerated the series of temptations which could enslave human beings: The passion for women, the desire for male children, the thirst for gold and silver, spirited horses, and the possession of cattle and land (Kuran, 3:12). Once enthroned in Medina as the head of a theocratic statelet, he wanted to possess them all. Muhammad freely admitted that two things in the world, women and perfume, attracted himso much so that he departed from his own laws in pursuit of both. Contrary to his own regulations he had at least 15 wives (some sources claim up to 25). The youngest was Aisha, who was seven years old when Muhammad44 years her senior"married" her. Two years later, 53-year-old Muhammad consummated this liaison and raped the girl of nine left under his control.
The sordid story of Muhammads "marriage" to Aisha reflected a mind-set and a lifestyle. Rape of enslaved women came naturally to Muhammad. A Christian slave woman by the name of Maryah aroused his passion for nights on end, which provoked a rebellion in his harem. Divine assistance was, in the end, needed to restore order in the household, with the Kuranic verse duly advising Muhammad not to restrain himself from "that which Allah has made lawful" (66:13).
Even more scandalous was the case of Zeinab, the wife of Zayd, Muhammads adopted son. Lusting after her, Muhammad ordered Zayd to divorce her and took Zeinab as yet another wife. The deal was soon sanctioned by another revelation from Allah: "there should not be any fault in the believers, touching the wives of their adopted sons, when they have accomplished what they would of them" (36:37).
These examples indicate that the status of women in Islam is comparable to that of the human rights in Cuba: theoretically exalted, deplorable in practice. The sources of true Islamthe Kuran and Hadithprovide the basis for theory and subsequent Sharia practice regarding the role of women. When a judge in Pakistan recently sentenced a young woman to death for "adultery" by stoning after she had been raped by her husbands brother, he had merely followed the Kuranic law. The fact the woman, Zafran Bibi, was raped was of no consequence: She was still guilty of "having intercourse outside of marriage."
Violence against women is also condoned, even mandated, in Islam. Allah mandates that the disobedient wives are to be beaten (4:34). As the authoritative Azhar University scholars in Cairo explain, "the Quran bestows on man the right to straighten her out by way of punishment and beating, provided he does not break her bones nor shed blood." Physical violence against ones wife is divinely ordained and practically advised in Islam. In Muhammads rendering of the story of the righteous Job, Allah ordered him to beat his wife: "Take in thine hand a branch and smite therewith and break not thine oath" (38:44).
Some Muslim apologists claim that the Islamic teaching and practice is in line with the findings of clinical psychology. Beating is beneficial to them, we are told, because "womens rebelliousness (nushuz) is a medical condition" based either on her masochistic delight in being beaten and tortured or sadistic desire to hurt and dominate her husband. Either way,
beating is her remedy. So the Quranic command: banish them to their couches, and beat them agrees with the latest psychological findings in understanding the rebellious woman. This is one of the scientific miracles of the Quran, because it sums up volumes of the science of psychology about rebellious women (The Australian Minaret, Australian Federation of the Islamic Councils, November 1980, p.10).
Islam stands or falls with the person of Muhammad, a flawed man by the standards of his own society, as well as those of the Old and New Testaments (both of which he acknowledged as divine revelation). He was flawed even by his new law, of which he claimed to be the divinely appointed medium and custodian. The horror unleashed by Chechen terrorists on Russian children in Beslan, and the rape of adolescent girls in particular, is the fruit of Muhammads example.
The problem of Islam, and the problem of the rest of the world with Islam, is in its claim that the words and acts of Muhammad provide the universally valid standard of morality and behavior for all time. Islam, in Muhammads texts and its codification, discriminates against women. It is extremely offensive. Those who submit to that faith must solve the problem they set themselves. Islam further discriminates against all "unbelievers." Until the petrodollars support a Kuranic revisionism that does not, we must go for it with whips and scorpions, hammer and tongs.
Spread of Christianity BAD, Rape by Muslims good.
Clinton and the democrats murdered 3000 innocent Serb civilians in their support for the Balkan IslamoFascists. The Serbs have been on the front lines of civilization fighting Islam for a thousand years.
Not only did the animals who took over the school in Beslan rape children, they released a video documenting it. (Yes, it was IMMEDIATELY turned in to the webhost and to the federal authorities.)
Chronicles gets it right again.
Valin and heartwood, maybe you two dhimmis would like a little dose of reality!!!
Rape innocent young girls good, put women's panties on the heads of terrorists bad.
It's a good bet that they probably raped them too.
Bump. Common knowledge by any who read history of Muhammad. The Q'uran is, always has been and always will be a direct, manufactured fraud.
Fraud indeed. That is the bottom line here.
Yes FR fought that battle too. It was hard with our young people over there. But, as usual FR was right. Fr pointed out THEN that The Dums were supporting the terrorists. But, no one listened. 4000 + dead and counting, now maybe people will listen.
Accorting to the Greek media when this happened, the military recoverd the video tapes made of the rapes. The tapes were turned over to putin.
I hope the dose of reality helped.
Too bad a complete sanitation of American Media can't be performed and it's likewise too bad that Americans with room-temperature IQs gobble the pap the majors feed them like so much pablum.
If the American people don't get properly incensed by what the news media is doing to our nation by not reporting the islamic evil, they'll live through a day and lifetime (albeit shortened)of pure hell when these evils are again perpetrated on U. S. soil.
Americans and Europeans actually believe there are good and bad muslims, not realizing that they suck up their scripture from the same un-holy koran written by a perverted child molester! It's difficult to believe that they actually pattern their lives after the words of the evil prophet found in his evil book.
Regardless of what our government, apparently too embarrassed to call the islamic situation as it truly is, mouths about the good muslims and the bad ones, Americans must be told the truth: there are no good muslims!
WIN THE WAR; RECOGNIZE THE ENEMY!
Unlike you and people and those that think like you I have never said this kind of thing doesn't happen, and Islam doesen't have srrious problems. But unlike you I (and President Bush) do not condemn 1+ billion people for the acts of these scumbags.
"Anyone who judges by the group is a peawit. You take men one at a time."
"The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara
And the author only touched briefly on the buggery of young servant boys which is okey dokey even today in Islam.
These evil Islamaniacs make Nazis look like kittens.
This is beyond horrific.
"Peawit" -- a word I must add to my vocabulary.
