In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child. Consummating the marriage by 9.
The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.
Even though a woman is abused she can not obtain a divorce.
To prove rape, the woman must have four male witnesses.

someone should email this to NOW. I don’t think they’re aware of this, otherwise they would probably reprioritize.
The leadership of N.O.W. doesn't care about women other than how they can use them to further their political goals.
There is no political power to be gained by standing up for actual abused/exploited women in the Islamic world.
They’re too busy beating up on Conservative Women.
I don’t think NOW would care.
Surely NOW knows, Muslims don’t exactly keep their subjugation and brutalization of women secret. I don’t think NOW cares about anything other than making sure women have the “right” to slaughter their unborn children for any reason including, ironically, just because they’re female.
NOW is clearly aware of this, but doesn’t want to rock the boat while a Democrat with Muslim ties is in the White House.
Why a free thinking Western woman would marry one of these beasts is beyond me....
NOW is about Socialism not Women’s rights.
My puzzlement regarding how NOW, and other organizations supposedly in support of women, never seem to speak up about these matters, was answered about a year ago.
I heard an expose on NPR that basically clarified that one of the reasons the concept of Islam, and the attendant treatment of women thereunder, is acceptable to these organizations is because in the Arab world men and women live apart and separate lives (think harem). Hence, the women bond among themselves (including lesbian relationships) and the men are only involved when they (the men) want sex.
Therefore, the core belief that women don’t need men and can have fulfilling lives with a social network of only females, fits nicely with the NOW concept of women. i.e. do your ‘duty’ for the men, but any personal relationship is with women.
Well, I just emailed it to NOW, just in case.
On their web-site they have links to the issues listed below. Maybe they can mention this under “Violence Against Women”
Abortion and Reproductive Rights
Ending Sex Discrimination
Promoting Diversity & Ending Racism
Stopping Violence Against Women
It is not just brutality against women. All the commands for subjugation and brutality are in the official terrorist training manuals.
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 Quran Start at the bottom.
There is a problem with this?
Look, I hope I am wrong and NOW actually takes notice and does something.
NOW has a very narrow agenda.....smashing nuts!
You got it!!
I believe this is inaccurate, at least in the original Muslim doctrine. What the Koran specifically requires is 4 male witnesses to the actual act in order to convict a woman of adultery. This was intended as protection of women, not their oppression.
This may have certainly morphed into the doctrine as stated, but if so it's a perversion of the original doctrine.
Only one radical feminist acknowledged the abuse of women under Sharia Law, and called out the other feminists on their silence. Andrea Dworkin.
While at Thanksgiving Dinner with some liberal friends, one woman said she has a nephew serving in Afghanistan. She described some of his accounts on how women are treated still by the locals. She was also critical of Obama’s policy (or lack of). She described it as “define the mission, let the troops execute the mission unfettered, or bring them home.”
