Skip to comments.Staggering Numbers of Women Converting to Islam
Posted on 03/13/2013 9:20:47 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota
The first thing the Dutch girl did once shed converted to Islam was change her name to Soumaya, she says, because she was the first martyr. She was prepared to die for Allah.
Soumaya, née Aphrodite, is one of a wave of tens of thousands of Westerners who convert to Islam every year, more than 75 percent of whom, astonishingly, are women. Equally surprising is the fact that most of these women gravitate to conservative Islamic groups the more misogynistic and oppressive ones insisting all the while that they feel liberated and free.
Reading through dozens of stories of such women, one cant help but notice the similarities among them. All claim to have embraced Islam of their own free will; yet an overwhelming majority, like Soumaya (whose story was profiled in the Dutch newspaper Het Parool), converted only after dating (or wedding) a Muslim man, usually interestingly enough a Moroccan (even in countries like England, where Moroccans do not form the majority Muslim population).

But, I guess, once you stop believing in Christ you will believe anything?
Girls seem to gravitate to the bad boy or the one that treats them the worse.
There are probably 100s of thousands if not millions of women who just have to be living with a punk who beats them up constantly. Seems like living with a moose-lum denigrates, humiliates, and insults these women, so it fits right in. So, I’m not surprised at this “phenomenon.”
The same girls tend to be into S&M too.
I wonder if the %-age of woman jews in this scenario is approximately 0.00000%. Or thereabouts.
I wonder how many of these women were raised without a father or strong male figure in the house? Very sad.
never forget replaced by never remember.
Wonderful. With that many beaten, bruised and ugly faces covered by a veil, we shall all be blessed.
It’s like Islam is a cult... not a faith.
Of course there are always people who are so lost and pathetically ignorant that cults appeal to them.... it’s a way for them to ‘belong’ without qualifying.
Or alternatively, once mainstream Christianity turns into a New Age, feel good entertainment hour where the message is that God loves you no matter what and you don't need to believe in or do much of anything, then people turn away from it and start believing in something else.
I wonder how much it will protect them the first time they are caught with an ankle uncovered or walking with a male who isn't their husband or relative.
Free of personal responsibility. Free from having to make choices. Freedom from liberty.
Hhmmm... Sounds like a Democrat.
any female muslim has to be a masochist with a wish to get beheaded by her muslim male counterparts. What are muslim women promised when they go to Allha’s heaven?
...although...I do feel women, in today’s western culture, are enslaved to a non-natural state. Feminism and PC are powerful tools that pressure women to “be a certain way”, convincing them that “sexual liberation” is actually liberating - instead it shackles them with the consequences.
Maybe some women innately reject this modern philosophy and are trying to find something different elsewhere. Unfortunately they found “different” in Islam, most likely without knowing where it’ll ultimately leave them.
It is a cult....a violent, murderous blood cult.
A couple of thoughts:
1. Tens of thousands is not necessarily that large a number. Could be anywhere from 10K - 99K.
2. These women may be looking for a someone to tell them what to do. Modern society offers many choices and some people are not comfortable with that.
3. If they are overweight, it gives them an excuse to wear a tent (or otherwise cover up). It may also yield them a “husband”.
“Not Without My Daughter” should be required viewing for any woman considering marrying a Muzzie.
being hidden behind a burqa and veil provides some semblance of being “special”, “fragile” “protected” put on a pedestal, and “kept” by a man- expected to stay home and raise children
even if done by misogynists and pedophiles
no pressure there to be the breadwinner AND homemaker
Does the Koran even mention women in the context of going to heaven? I don't think so, but I could be wrong.
In contrast, Jesus broke Jewish custom to speak to the Samaritan woman at the well, and Scripture instructs men to love their wives as Christ loves the church. Yet leftwingers say Christianity is anti-woman.
“Not Without My Daughter” on youtube.
Amen sir. Post of the day.
When they realize the plans these savages have for them it will be too late. They should have watched the video of what life is like for women under Taliban rule. Women will commit suicide to get out of the miserable life they are forced to live.
I saw that and is something everyone should see..
Sally Field,plays the women that is kept against her will when her and her husbands went on vacation to his home land..
That was one good movie..I think it is on NETFLIX..
Why is that astonishing?
It is exactly what I, and what any other student of human nature, would expect.
Why would anyone join a world-domination hate group cleverly disguised as a religion?
They must hate themselves and everyone else.
Allah’s heaven. aks Paradise, is not like the Judeo/Christian Heaven. The Judeo/Christian Heaven holds all comers, allah’s only holds 72,000 according to Mohammad.
Maybe it’s the Noble Savage Syndrome.
A misguided theory that uncivilized barbarian savages are really just nice, cultured, kind, innocent, gentle people after all, and that they are misunderstood by eeevvviiiilllll White people because they have dark skin.
My guess is they are looking for a “daddy” (father figure or “alpha male” if you will) to guide them and/or looking for some religion and way of life as a crutch to keep them on the straight and narrow.
Fun, fun, fun — until he takes the second wife.
Wow, 72,000. There’s a merciful god for you. /s
...It is exactly what I, and what any other student of human nature, would expect.
I'm starting to wonder why men ever gave women the vote. And I'm a woman.
Women are the weak link emotionally and physically. If given the option of permanent protection where they don’t have to work, they will take it. It is no different than a woman who nags her husband to make more money, etc. while she stays at home eating chocolate and watching oprah. That was the norm for our culture for centuries. It no longer is. So women are naturally searching for it. Unfortunately, Islam provides the ‘perception’ of such but in reality it is much darker. Woe be to those women, may The Lord watch over them and open their eyes before it is too late.
I read an article about this a few years back and the author stated that once you embrace Islam, you no longer have to think for yourself. Every thing in your life is decided for you.
She stated this was the reason why women converted, you no longer have the responsibility of thinking for yourself.
I guess some women like that.
Most of the followers of Charles Manson including the ones who stabbed 9 month pregnant Sharon Tate in the belly and killed her were women.
Women support Obama and the Democrat Party in much greater numbers than men.
My one and only extended “up close and personal” brush with The Religion of Peace occurred during a 4 day visit to Dubai.I was amazed by how many women I saw that were covered from head to toe...many even covering their *entire* face except for thinner material over the eyes allow the woman to see (presumably).At a mall a family (man,woman and a couple of kids) sat next to me at a MacDonalds and I was wondering how the woman,*completely* covered,was going to eat.It turns out that when food was about to be consumed she lifted the fork to her mouth and flipped up a flap thus “exposing” her mouth for a *fraction* of a second,allowing the food to go in.I find that to be,in a way,very symbolic of just how inconsequential women are to believers in the ROP.
They can’t handle God-given free will-that’s what leftist thinking has done to people-gave them “total liberty”, no societal constraints, no legal ones, nothing-but it’s too much for people-so they turn to the places where all their decisions are made and there are steep consequences here on earth for them-because people can no longer handle self-responsibility at the same time as not believing in eternal consequence.
It sounds insane but some of these girls have zero idea what they’re getting into.
My husband and I were jaw-dropped when we overheard a clueless bubbly young southern girl wearing a headress (working at a Payless) talking to her fellow employee why she wanted to marry an Islamic guy. She was listing the three things he insisted on before marriage (didn’t hear #1)
#2 was him going out, no questions asked, whenever—to spend time “with the guys”—”and I said, sure, like, I like spending time with like my friends, too, so like that was no problem!” she said.
#3 was when they have kids, that the kids would go every summer to stay with his family in the Middle East(!), which she expressed something like “—and I said, sure, the kids ought to get to know their grandparents, y’know, like I used to stay with my grandparents back in the summer..”
(oh yeah, hey legit American citizens, spend time with Uncle Muhammed learning how to be a terrorist /suicide bomber!)
We went out of the Payless, our heads spinning. What should anyone say or do overhearing someone this ignorant in a situation like this? We should have said something, but we were dumbfounded!
Yes, humans invariably desire to be taken to task.
I’m wondering if it is because they can’t handle the way women are treated as sex symbols in today’s society. Maybe they view men as a protector in that society.
This is what I was thinking,but you state it much more eloquently.
Women like strong men, or at least brutality which can be mistaken for strength. American boys are being raised like the French of the early 20th century - feminized and taught to surrender/run away from bullies.
To borrow a quote from a book from C.J. Cherryth, if your culture does not provide for a basic need of a people, they will be seduced by the first culture that does.
Women who want to get married to a man who will protect and provide, to stay home and have children, are demonized by secularists. Women who want the traditional husband and stay at home mother model have trouble finding a man who will do this, because their western counterparts want to shack up or even live off her income. So she falls for a Muslim man who promises what she wants, but she doesn’t realize that it is a dramatic step down from the 1800s-1950s family model.
Remember that being a martyr, per the Quran, guarantees you a spot in the Muslim version of paradise. Now someone must help me on the current tally, but Im pretty sure that the 72,000th Muslim to die a martyr, did so quite a few years ago.
So how does this work? Do new martyrs displace old martyrs? Does a martyr with a higher body count of infidels slain, displace a martyr with a lower body count?
Inquiring minds want to know.
How people give this cult moral and logical relevance is beyond me.
Consider the advantages:
- Quit blowing thousands of bucks a year on a wardrobe. Just a couple of basic burquas in black and black will suffice.
- With those there’s no reason to ask anyone “Does this make me look fat?”
- No need to stress over guys on construction sites ogling you....because you know they won’t be.
- Odds that somebody will slip a roofie into your drink drop to zero.
- Good chance that you’ll be able to share the housework with three other wives.
It’s better than being gang raped and terrorized by the neighbors.
