Islam: A Religion Custom-Made For Men (Tough luck if you're a woman)
American Thinker ^ | 01/03/2011 | Amil Imani

Posted on 01/04/2011 10:55:52 AM PST by SeekAndFind

Muslims, by belief and practice, are the most blatant violators of human rights.  We hardly need to detail here Muslims' systemic cruel treatment of the unbelievers, women of all persuasions, and any and all minorities across the board.  To Muslims, human rights have a different meaning, and its protective provisions are reserved strictly for Muslims -- primarily for Muslim men.  Just a couple of examples should suffice for now.

Oppression of women, for one, is so systemic in Islam that to this day, women are, at best, second-class citizens under Islamic law.  Saudi Arabia, the custodian of Islamdom, denies women the right to drive, vote, or hold elective office -- the most basic rights of citizens in democratic societies.  Arabs and Muslims are masters of double-acts.  They do all things in private, yet the public display of morality, decorum, and even piety is something you wear as you would your Keffiyeh even under the sizzling sun.

In model Islamic states such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, for instance, women do not dare complain about their Allah-decreed chattel status.  If they protest in the least, they are beaten by their husbands.  And if they dare to demonstrate in public for equal family rights with men, they get severe beatings by the police and are hauled to jails for additional indignities and violence.

One may wonder, then, why it is that millions of Muslim women meekly submit to their subservient rank and thank Allah for it.  These women are virtually imprinted by their parents and the clergy from birth to adopt the gender inequality, as well as the entire pathological Islamic ethos.

Islam can be a "forgiving" religion, specifically for the male.  If you neglect to say your prayers or you simply don't want to, you can hire someone, preferably an imam or a mullah, to pray on your behalf.  Going to the Hajj is too onerous and takes you away from the pleasures and comforts of your life?  You can deputize someone else to go in your stead.  You have a few drinks of the forbidden brew, and it is time to say your prayer?  Simply rinse your mouth and go ahead with praying.  But always remember the will of Allah and serve him.  Do your duties to vanquish the unbelievers, promote the rule of the Sharia, and make the earth Allah's.

In Islamic societies, freedom of expression, worship, and assembly are taken away.  Women are indeed treated as chattel.  Young girls are subjected to barbaric genital mutilation to make them sex slaves and birth channels without the ability to enjoy intercourse.  Minors are executed, adulterers are stoned to death, thieves have their limbs amputated, and much, much more.  Isn't that everyone's idea of paradise?

Women, by the very nature of their second-class status expressly stipulated in the Quran, are occasionally allowed a token high position in government, while non-Muslim minority citizens are virtually barred from securing any positions at all.

Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the others and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you take no further action against them. Allah is high, supreme.
 - Quran 4.34


This misogynist religion of Allah is custom-made for the savage male.  A faithful follower of Allah is allowed to have as many as four permanent wives -- and replace any of them at any time he wants -- as well as an unlimited number of one-night or one-hour stands that he can afford to rent.  But woe unto a woman if she has even a single love affair with another man.  Nothing less than death by stoning is her just punishment.

In the Islamic Republic of Iran and under the Islamic Sharia that became the unofficial law of the land, a religiously sanctioned ceremony immediately filled the void.  Many mosques provided the service of Seeghe -- temporary marriages.  Women interested in or forced by circumstances beyond their control to seek this type of "marriage" would register with a local mullah.  Men seeking a temporary wife would contact the mullah and specify what kind of woman they desired and for how long.  Depending on the marketability of the candidate woman, a fee is levied on the man, and the mullah pronounces them husband and wife for a stipulated duration.  Once the patron satisfies his urges, the same mullah simply annuls the marriage.  Voilà!  No problems.  The pair parts company, and the mullah, a replacement for the former pimp or madam, pockets his fee.

Thanks to Western technology, the Seeghe business has also joined the 21st-century world.  In some of the bigger cities and Tehran, a man can pick up a woman and call in for a Seeghe authorization, which is granted over the phone, and the fee is charged to the patron's credit card.  Islam is a custom-made religion for men.  Well, as long as men rule and the rule serves them, the horrific plight of women plays out.  It is a great deal for men.

What is incredible is the gall and audacity of Muslims in demanding that Western and other democracies legalize Sharia in their societies.  Due to large populations of Muslims, mostly recent arrivals, in countries such as Canada, Great Britain, and Sweden, these countries are experiencing the insistent demands by Muslims to have Sharia rule their Islamic communities.  This is just the beginning, and it may seem relatively harmless to the simpletons in our midst.  Yet once Sharia is recognized to any extent, it will reach out to rule not only on matters that concern Muslims, but also on those that may involve a Muslim and non-Muslim.  Under Sharia, a Muslim man married to a non-Muslim woman is able to divorce the woman at will, automatically have custody of the children, and literally toss the wife out of "his" home with practically no compensation.

"Death to the Islamic Republic," "Stop stoning women," and "Death to the Criminal Mullahs and Democracy for Iran" are the banners read almost routinely in most European countries by the Iranian expatriate sympathizers condemning the Islamic Republic's brutality against women.  They demand equal rights and treatments for the largest oppressed minority in the world.

As the world turns, we become convinced that the Islamic system is custom-made for men, by men, and for the pleasure of men.  And the men in power, the clergy, the prime beneficiaries of the system do not intend to voluntarily relinquish their privileged status.

There is a hope that Muslims themselves may leave this Bedouin slaveholder religion.  Yet the hope is slim.  Islam has a stranglehold on its slaves and will not let them go, nor do the Muslims seem to have the insight or the will to leave it in large numbers.  But hope, as slim as it is, keeps me sounding the alarm before the fire of Islam engulfs us all.

American women - especially white ones helped elect a muslim in 2008 because Oprah told them to. Guess which white woman Oprah TV will be demonizing?

Keep watching TV sheeple - keep losing your country.

Yes, tough luck if you are a Muslim Woman. If a man rapes you, your husband can kill you since you did not fight the man to death. Thus you might survive the rape, but be honor killed.

Not only this, but beware turning 60. Very few women over 60 are found in Iran. Ever wonder why?

I haven’t read the article, but I’ve commented in the past that Islam seems to make all the worst instincts of the male acceptable religious and cultural practices.

The article is true, correct , unbiased and objective.
I think we are going to have to email a complaint to http://www.un.org/en/rights/index.shtml , the OIC’s “UN”. Let them take a stand on the issue /s.

Muslim Mastectomy
or
The Miracle of Disappearing Breasts

Surah an-Naba' (78:33)

Since Surah 78:33 is not a complete sentence, we quote the verses 78:31-34 so that the phrase is given in its context. For easier comparison we have put verse 78:33 in bold.

Pickthall Yusuf Ali Shakir Sher Ali Rashad Khalifa
Lo! for the duteous is achievement - Gardens enclosed and vineyards,And maidens for companions,And a full cup. Verily for the Righteous there will be a fulfilment of (the heart's) desires; Gardens enclosed, and grapevines; Companions of equal age; And a cup full (to the brim). Surely for those who guard (against evil) is achievement, Gardens and vineyards,And those showing freshness of youth, equals in age, And a pure cup. Verily, for the righteous is decreed a triumph - Walled gardens and grapevines, And young maidens of equal age, And over-flowing cups. The righteous have deserved a reward. Orchards and grapes. Magnificent spouses. Delicious drinks.
Muhammad Ali   Arberry Rodwell Al-Hilali & Khan
Surely for those who keep their duty is achievement, Gardens and vineyards, And youthful (companions), equal in age, and a pure cup.   Surely for the godfearing awaits a place of security, gardens and vineyards and maidens with swelling breasts, like of age, and a cup overflowing. But, for the God-fearing is a blissful abode, Enclosed gardens and vineyards; And damsels with swelling breasts, their peers in age, And a full cup: Verily, for the Muttaqûn, there will be a success (Paradise); Gardens and grapeyards;And young full-breasted (mature) maidens of equal age; And a full cup (of wine).

The (transliterated) Arabic reads:

31 'INNA LI- AL- MUTTAQEN MAFAAZ(AN)
32 H.ADAA'IQ WA- AcNAAB(AN)
33 WA- KAWAAcIB ATRAAB(AN)
34 WA- KA'S(AN) DIHAAQ(AN)

Several differences could be observed between the various versions of the Qur'an in regard to this passage (e.g. achievement, fulfillment, triumph, reward, security, success are quite a range of interpretations in 78:31). It is quite drastic, however, to discover that most of the Muslim translators are so embarrassed about 78:33 that they leave out half of the verse in their translations, hiding its real meaning. Al-Hilali & Khan are the only Muslims (we have seen) who translate somewhat truthfully, even though their translation is still tame compared to the image that the Arabic original is seeking to create in the mind of the men who are listening to the recitation of these verses. For what purpose? To rouse their sexual desire and the determination to do anything to reach this kind of paradise?

Men certainly aren’t AS oppressed under Islam as women are, but let’s not kid ourselves or anyone else. EVERYONE is oppressed under Islam. Some are just more oppressed under it than others. But ALL are.

“They think sitting around drinking tea and smoking sheesha is fun.”

I suppose most do. But their overall role in life is crummy. I don’t think it is a happy or fulfilling way to live.

Stupid headline.

Real men have no need to subjugate women. Real men enjoy the company of their female partners to mutual benefit, just as nature/God (take your pick) intended. And vice versa.

Muslim males are not “men”. QED.

I have tried, unsuccessfully, to discuss the dangers of Islam and Sharia Law with friends and family, but I usually get a “so what” or “freedom of religion” or “it’ll never take off here” reaction… then the other night while playing cards with the guys I tried a whole new approach. When the discussion went to the Constitution (as it inevitably does) I steered it to State Rights. I described how one of the states is looking at enacting new laws that protect men’s rights during a nasty divorce and even putting in provisions that state a wife can’t refuse her husband’s sexual advances or its grounds for divorce. Not only that, but she gets nothing in the divorce…not even the kids. No alimony. No child support. Several of the guys, having gone through nasty divorces were immediately intrigued and wanted to move to THAT state! When asked which state, I replied, Iran…dead silence. Now imagine the temptation of Sharia Law for American men in that context and you can see how dangerous it truly is…food for thought.

Sharia law is already a reality in Canada and Britain. See here :

http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/08/sharia_law_in_canada_and_brita.html

Oklahoma can’t even pass a voter-supported law banning Sharia in its state.

It is closer than most people think.

Perhaps the next time you are playing cards with your friends you ask if they really know who their daughters or sisters are dating and could it ever possibly be a nice
‘harmless’ Mooselimb lad.

Those guys don’t understand how much THEY (even as men) would be oppressed under Islam. When one gets only a narrow picture of something but not all the details one can be duped (as you did with your buddies, to prove a point).

I agree with everything you posted and I’m probably more outraged than most about what Islam brings...but I have a serious question...

Islam has tons of flaws, we know. But have we looked at what America does in the site of God? All the blasphemy, sexual immorality, abortion, etc etc etc...I know Christianity is not about these things but our nation is going down this road.

Allah is not God, that’s clear, but Christianity is on the decline. I guess America is a step ahead of Islam because at least most of us know God...

When the Jews turned away from God, God allowed Babylon to dominate them. Babylon wasn’t a God-fearing nation just like Islam isn’t.

I don’t know, but I think America is in bigger trouble than Islam is, ya think?

Not at all. America has serious moral failings, but we recognize those failings. We have child rapists, but we prosecute them, not wrap them in the mantle of "marriage". We have one night stands, but we don't try to justify them as "pleasure marriages." We are immodest, but we don't use modesty as a justification to mutilate little girls.

We have our serious moral failings, but we don't wrap them in language of "good." We're more honest. We have multiple divorce and remarriage, but we don't try to call it good by having multiple wives. We have naked women advertising everything, but we don't treat womens' bodies as evil in the name of modesty.

So yeah, America's got issues, but we don't try to justify those issues by lying and calling them good, wrapping them in the virtues that God gave us. America's got honesty in her corner.

Really good points mockingbyrd. It's making me think. Thanks for writing!

you wrote: "Not at all. America has serious moral failings, but we recognize those failings."

Do you really think we realize how far we've fallen? I mean apart from comparing ourselves to Islam which I believe is doomed, but then, so was Babylon.

I think we're all so used to it that we don't even realize how bad we are compared to purity. My son told me in the 10th grade he didn't even know any virgins. Maybe it's because I live in California but still.

We're not closer to being right just because Islam is wronger. You said we don't try to justify our issues by lying and calling them good, but, um, I think we flat out do, just not the same way as Islam.

Again, maybe it's because I'm in California.

You wrote,"America's got honesty in her corner."

mockingbyrd, in THIS corner, from what I see on the left coast, I think honesty is far from us. We're pretty much deluded and drowning in moral decay while we open up churches that claim the Bible has it all wrong and God said: [insert whatever is popular today.]"

I think we're in really big trouble and it's not because we were innocently sleeping.
