A point that Leftists nationally — and female Leftists in particular — very pointedly AVOID because they are primarily cowards. Cowards. Womens’ advocacy groups avoid conflict with Islam like the plague — though it is Islam that treats women like dogs, like property, and worse. The Honor Diaries:
And I’m tired of glossing over the abrogations of Islam.
Honor killings, genital mutilation and more.
Let us not forget this photograph:
Ah, the loving and understanding embrace of Islam via the Taliban.
But if you’re a Muslim and you liked that above photo, you’ll absolutely rave over this:
I hope that photograph makes you wince. Yes, that is a commercial and unsterilized razor blade held in the hand of a Muslim. Because I say and will always say: “Islam is as Islam does.”
Give me one justification for a clitorectomy. Andclitorectomies applied not just to infants but to juveniles and teens. With the most immoral and prehistoric tools possible.
Does that make you “uncomfortable” and make you “doubt my sources”? Then go do a search of your own. You will find much worse. And close up. Much, much more close up.
If Islam wants to “clean up its act,” then those who commit tragedies and abhorrent acts in the name of Islam need to stop. But they won’t. Simple as that.
Because as far as they are concerned, they have faith on their side.
A final note: one woman who is speaking up against honor killings and forced marriages and genital mutilation at the hand of Muslim males is Ayaan Hirsi Ali. She writes of Boko Haram here.
Let me further refresh your memories.
This is the same woman that Brandeis University banned from speaking at its site. The Economist wrote:
EARLIER this month Brandeis University rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born women’s rights activist, saying its officials had not been fully aware of some her more scathing remarks on Islam. Conservatives have accused Brandeis of muzzling Ms Hirsi Ali and bowing to Muslim pressure groups. Liberals have wondered how the university could possibly have overlooked Ms Hirsi Ali’s condemnations, not just of radical Islam, but of Islam as such. At the risk of coming off as a postmodern multi-culti squish, it seems to me that this discussion suffers from a lack of cultural context—but not the cultural context you’re thinking of. The way Ms Hirsi Ali talks about Islam strikes American liberals as strangely intolerant, but it has its roots in the prevailing discourse on religious freedom and Islam in the country where Ms Hirsi Ali first began seriously tackling these issues: the Netherlands.
That said, even The Economist was wrong. Ayaan Hirsi Ali knows which side of Islam gets portrayed and which side gets buried.
Imagine that. A woman sensitive to death and mutilation. Because she’s seen it and experienced it.
