Islam is the “War on Women”

Republicans and Democrats are claiming the other side is staging a “war on women.”

Democrats, in an attempt to damage Republicans, are desperately trying to use the aftermath of the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke “slut” controversy to their full advantage. Leftist groups like, Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee, and others are trumping up lines like: “Shocking Attacks from the GOP’s War on Women.”

Last month, democratic strategist Hillary Rosen stated that Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.” Now Republicans are attempting to damage Democrats by saying there is a left-wing “war on women.” Popular conservative sites and pundits have picked up on this line and are running with it.

While all of this political rhetoric may be fun, we are ignoring the ideology that is truly anti-woman: Islam. The real “war on women” is being waged by this violently misogynist religion.

Surat An-Nisa 4:34 in the Qur’an says if a woman is not obedient, the man is eventfully instructed to “strike” his wife. Section 83 of Iran’s Islamic penal code states that adultery is punishable by stoning and flogging. Article 300 says that a woman is half the value of a man. A man can divorce his wife without notice under article 1133 of the Iranian Islamic civil code.

Du’a Khalil Aswad was stoned and kicked to death in Iraq in mid-2007 because she dated a boy from a differing religion. A video from the Herat province in Afganistan shows a 12-year-old child, forced into marriage, crying for help from her abuser. “Please help me get divorce, next time he will kill me. He injured me with a knife,” she says. A Muslim father shot his two daughters New Years Day 2008 because they had boyfriends. In early 2009, the founder of a New York Muslim TV channel beheaded his estranged wife because of an impending divorce. Later that year, the AP released a shocking video of a woman being publically flogged in Pakistan – which is 95% Muslim. In August 2010, a 48-year-old pregnant Afghani widow was whipped 200 times and shot dead by an Islamic group as she was accused of infidelity. Last year, Katya Koren, a 19-year-old Muslim girl, was stoned to death for taking part in a beauty contest.

The “war on women” does not come from Republicans, Democrats, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, the RNC, or MoveOn.Org. The real war comes from Islam – a maniacal ideology that is bent on the preservation of oppression and destruction of women.

    Also, this is unrelated but I’m sure many people don’t know about these verses of the Quran, even the radical Muslims.

    “The ink of a scholar is worth a thousand times more than the blood of a martyr.”
    -Propher Muhammad

    “If any one slew a person it would be as if he slew the whole humanity: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the whole humanity.”
    -Surah 5, Verse 32

    1. You can’t use political laws in Iran to generalize all of Islam. If this was true in every Islamic country, then MAYBE you would have a case. But why aren’t these laws in Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world? Why not Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc.?

    2. You mentioned one verse in the Quran that has been interpreted many ways. If you keep reading, you will note that it also says that “striking” a woman should not inflict pain and should not even leave a mark.

    3. You cited several examples of women being killed in the name of religion. Umm, I’m not sure how well versed you are in history but pretty much all of the monotheistic religions have thousands of killings in the name of religion and yes, even towards women.

    What should be understood is that these people are radicals. Every religious group has them. There are over a billion Muslims in the world and only a few of them act this way and believe these things. It’s the same for every other religion.

    This is why Muslims in America can’t vote for Republicans even if we are fiscally conservative, want small government, and are pro-life. That all comes secondary to all of these false attacks on our religion.

      Well now you’re just speaking logic.

      Also, there are many Christians who abuse women because they think its inline with the Bible. Hell, a majority of pro-lifers are so because they think abortion is wrong according to the Christian God.

      Finally, you can not disprove that there isn’t a war on women in America by being all “see? Its worse over there!” Is that really our standards? Women shouldn’t have a say over their own medical decisions but at least we don’t stone them?

        A very poor argument. You make your opponents case. You should take the time to find out about who is behind the abortion movement. You yourself appreciate it because it is the elimination of your future opponents. Abortion is not a womens rights issue. It is a child rights issue. Nice try !!!

      It would be better that you did not vote at all, because your teachings have brought you to oppose all that America stands for, which is good & right. How can you fit into? You cannot, so you seek to change America into that which would better align with your own beliefs. America has had it’s share of problems associated with resistance to change, but we have also come a long way, while having enemies from within.Our greatest enemy is the wolf dressed in sheeps clothing. You would be second now, when formerly you were 3rd behind Communism. All who are not determined to find truth will be deceived. It is natural law.

    If any group or ideology ever had a beef against women it’s Islam. Thank you for bringing this to light.
