…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
The feminists movers and shakers are steadfastly silent on the Islam treatment of women in general, recent ISIS misogynist atrocities in particular; and the recently outed, though long-lasting (over 16 years) Islamic rape and sexual abuse industry in Rotherdam, UK. Some semi-conservative commentators expressed a surprise, or at least feigned a surprise. It should be no surprise at all, considering the ideological origins of the feminist movement, integrity and intelligence of its leaders, and the politically correct spinelessness of the Western media.
Hardly any journalist will bother to ask, for example, Julia Gillard what happened to her promise to fight misogyny everywhere. When Julia had her anti-misogyny hissy-fit in the Parliament, a female in charge of Macquarie Dictionary had to redefine ‘misogyny’. Now she would have to redefine ‘violence’ to exclude “chastisement of women sanctioned by the ageless Islamic practice and Koran”. Since her dishonest diatribe, Julia apparently has forgotten what she had said; likely some man wrote her “blue ties” speech. Certainly she has not practised what she so vociferously preached. See “Julia Gillard set to embrace misogynist illegal Islamic jihadist hatefest in Melbourne.”
The other gauleiters of the Pink brigade [Fog of Chaos – The Pink Brigade – August 2012] are silent in solidarity. Michelle Obama couldn’t even bring herself to a hash-tag “Save women from Islam”. Perhaps those Iraqi women are not black enough or are not eating healthy food.
I moaned about the damage the Left, pseudo pro-women avant-garde is doing to normal women; e.g. F/Chaos – Whining gender – June 2013 or Feminism in chaotic times . Luckily, at least some women sensibly talk and write, e.g. Haleh Esfandiari. She was held in solitary confinement in Evin Prison in Tehran for 105 days in 2007 and now she now directs the Middle East program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars:
“Tucked away in a recent New York Times story on military operations against ISIS by Iraqi special forces and the Kurdish Peshmerga was a brief description of what these troops discovered when they entered a village in Iraq that had been occupied by ISIS fighters. A naked woman, tied to a tree, who had been repeatedly raped by ISIS fighters. Another woman was discovered in a second village, similarly naked, tied down and repeatedly raped. The fighters, it appears, are “rewarded” by being allowed to have their way with captured women.
ISIS has received considerable world attention for its savage beheadings, executions of captured soldiers and men in conquered towns and villages, violence against Christians and Shiites, and the destruction of non-Sunni shrines and places of worship. But its barbarity against women has been treated as a side issue. Arab and Muslim governments, vocal on the threat ISIS poses to regional stability, have been virtually silent on ISIS’s systemic degradation, abuse, and humiliation of women. To the men of ISIS, women are an inferior race, to be enjoyed for sex and be discarded, or to be sold off as slaves.
From ISIS-captured territory in Syria, we saw a photograph of a line ofwomen, covered from head to toe and tied to one another by a rope, as they were being led to a makeshift slave market. Little girls, who were going to school and playing with dolls before ISIS fighters arrived at their doorstep, were married off to men many times their age. ISIS set up marriage bureaus in captured Syrian towns to recruit virgins and widows to marry fighters, and also called on fellow jihadists in other countries to recruit brides for the fighters and send them to Syria. It is hardly likely that these “marriages” were based on consent, as is required in Islam. Where women are concerned, consent does not appear to exist in the lexicon of ISIS fighters.
When ISIS moved into Iraq, a similar set of atrocities followed. In ISIS-conquered towns, reports of women and girls having to undergo female genital mutilation spread like wildfire, until denied by ISIS’s savvy social media. …
Zakia Hakki, an Iraqi judgeand a woman herself, says that the fighters leave behind pregnant women who, as “soiled goods,” are ostracized by their own societies, while their children are treated as illegitimate. These raped women become targets for honor killings in their own families and communities. …”
In Christian families also?
“… Volunteer fighters from around the world, including from Western countries, who have joined ISIS are complicit in these crimes against women. These young men who grew up in Western cultures seem to have absorbed nothing regarding the value of human life and respect for women. Why are there are no demonstrations in Western and Muslim societies against this barbaric onslaught on women and girls? How much longer will the Muslim and Arab world watch these horrors against women and children before speaking out and acting forcefully to protect them and rid the region of the ISIS calamity?” /full article Think Tank Sep 2, 2014 /
Another normal woman:
Islam expert Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide To The Resistance,” and who runs the Atlas Shrugs website, told WND that special consideration for Muslims isn’t unusual at all.
“Muslims in the U.K. and the U.S. have been demanding and receiving special, preferential treatment for years. I founded my organization, the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), in part to fight against this practice and to insist that there should in free societies be no special rights for special classes.
“And now Muslims in the U.K. are appalled about Muslim rape gangs? This is outrageously deceptive. These rape gangs have been operating for years. Muslims didn’t rally with the Sikhs and the EDL against them. Where were these enraged Muslims then?”
Where are the enraged women today, one may well ask? Some Australian heroines have boldly renamed a Fathers Day the Parents Day, inshallah. Pity that the uniform of muslim barbarians lacks a blue tie.
