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 MoveOn.org, 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.
