We all know that the Islamic paradise is a huge brothel where men eat, drink and have sex with endlessly compliant eternal ‘virgins’ (and possibly boys), untouched by man or jinn (demons not alcohol!)
Eg. Koran sura 78.31-33, 55.54-58, 55.72-74; 45.70-74, 56.35-38, 52.17-20, 37.48-49, 44.51-55, 38.49-53, 2.25 or young boys with skin like pearls 52.24, 56.17, 76.19). Hadith eg Tirmidhi note, male virility, 72 virgins/ white houris-girls of tender age with transparent skin, large breasts, free from menstruation, menopause, urinal and other discharges, child bearing and the related pollution (also Bukhari V4 book 54 No. 476 and v4 book 55 No. 544). Great Muslims like al-Ghazali (1058-1111) in Ihya Uloom Ed-Din (almost as important as the Koran) continue the fantasy promising more virgins.
A European report shows the increasing numbers of Muslim women seeking ‘recreation of a hymen’ which is becoming a lucrative business! (For Muslim women in Europe, a medical road back to virginity. The New York Times. Wednesday, June 11, 2008 ).
"In my culture, not to be a virgin is to be dirt," said the student, perched on a hospital bed as she awaited surgery Thursday. "Right now, virginity is more important to me than life."
‘Gynecologists report that in the past few years, more Muslim women are asking for certificates of virginity before marriage.’
Indeed virginity is ‘life’ as lack of it can result in honour killing to restore family honour!
‘Surgeons who perform the procedure said they were empowering their patients by giving them a viable future and preventing them from being abused - or even killed - by their fathers or brothers.............’
‘This is not for amusement. My patients don't have a choice if they want to find serenity - and husbands."
One 32 year old Muslim woman living in Germany stated regarding her father:
"He told me, 'I will forgive everything, but not if you have thrown dirt on my honor.' I wasn't afraid he would kill me, but I was sure he would have beaten me."
Think of those horse riders (often cited as a cause of ruptured hymens) or others whose hymens just broke or were never noticeably there in the first place....and the fear that results when they realise they don’t have a hymen!
She insisted that she had never had intercourse and said that she had discovered her hymen was torn only when she tried to obtain a certificate of virginity to present to her boyfriend and his family....The trauma of realizing that she could not prove her virginity was so intense, she said, that she quietly took out a loan to pay for the procedure.
Suggesting that non-virgins are impure or unacceptable is just another expression of Islam’s loathing of women and a demand for power and control over them. Surely these attitudes MUST be challenged and changed, NOT tolerated by endorsing this absurd procedure!!! eg
Women are tilth men can plough as they wish (Koran 2.222, 2.223) or enjoy head-to-toe (Reliance of the Traveller m5.4 p 526, m10.12 (3) p 541) regardless of the woman’s wishes (* Abu Dawud Book 11, No. 2159). Women must be constantly ready (clean, plucked/shaved) to satisfy his sexual demands (Reliance m5.6 p526; *Bukhari V 7, Book 62, No. 173; Reliance m5.0 p525; *Muslim Book 8, Number 3240; Mishkat al-Masabih, English translation, Book I, Section 'Duties of husband and wife', Hadith No. 61etc).
She must be constantly available or she receives no support (Reliance m11.9 p545 and m10.1 p 538) and is cursed (*Muslim Book 8, Nos 3366/7/8 ; * Bukhari V7, Book 62, No 122; *Bukhari V4, Book 54, No 460). Women are beaten if they don’t obey (Koran 4.34, Reliance m10.12 p541/542).
Will Muslim men begin demanding that any wife (even if previously married) have hymenoplasty so he can pretend he has eternal virgins and inflict pain and control over his brides?
The danger of Muslims in positions of power:
‘The issue has been particularly charged in France, where there has been a renewed and fierce debate about a prejudice that was supposed to have been buried with the country's sexual revolution 40 years ago: the importance ofa woman's virginity.
The furor followed the revelation two weeks ago that a court in the northern city of Lille had annulled the 2006 marriage of two French Muslims after the groom discovered his bride was not the virgin she had claimed to be....... She was delivered that night to her parents' doorstep.
The marriage was annulled supposedly for breach of contract---she wasn’t chaste as had been claimed. No such requirement of virginity attaches to him, she was humiliated and it also shows that there was no love or respect for the female as an equal human being or her broken hymen would not have mattered!
Rachida Dati, MUSLIM, Minister for Justice (HA, HA) upheld the dissolution of the marriage - making a female’s lack of virginity a reason for dissolving a marriage!!! This shows clearly that Muslims in power (local, state, federal politics, Judges, lawyers, police ...) endanger our values, equality and freedom because, if they are true Muslims, they must use their position to enforce Islamic attitudes, practices and laws and we all know how horrifying that is for women and non-Muslims!
While some in Parliament may have called for her resignation, and she was forced to backdown, the ability to halt Islamization is declining rapidly as Muslims increase in numbers and our too tolerant western society places them in important positions!
‘The French College of Gynecologists and Obstetricians opposes the hymen procedure on moral, cultural and health grounds.
"We had a revolution in France to win equality; we had a sexual revolution in 1968 when women fought for contraception and abortion," said Jacques Lansac, the association's president. "Attaching so much importance to
the hymen is regression, submission to the intolerance of the past."
But, a Muslim male should not marry a sexually experienced woman (*Abu-Dawud Book 11, No. 2046), and he cannot marry a woman who cannot breed (*Abu-Dawud Book 11, No 2045). Mohammad encouraged his friends to marry young virgins (*Bukhari V 7, Book 62, No. 17). Islam allows marriage and sex with pre-pubescent girls (text in many articles on site) so often girls lose their virginity long before they can breed. Add instant divorce for men and you have children, nolonger virgins and already divorced, ready to be picked up and used by the next male, so Islamic law doesn’t mandate virginity but it ‘recommends’ it and looks the other way if she is fertile! ( Reliance m1.4 p 510) Add this to all the other attitudes to girls/women and male control of women in Islam and you can only produce a society where women are property! The Muslim woman doesn’t own her own sexual organs and cannot invite others to use her ‘organ’ ie no sexuality or control of her body!
Mohammad Qotb, well known Muslim writer:
'The guardian does not have the right to invite people to steal something which does not belong to him. Similarly the girl who is only simply the guardian of her honour (her bud) does not have the right to make use of it (her sexual organ) nor can she invite anyone to violate it. For it is not simply a case of her own honour but also her parent's honour, the honour of her family, of society and of all humanity. (Ascha, Ghassan p58 Du Status inferior de la femme en Islam Paris 1989- in Ibn Warraq ‘Why I am not a Muslim’ p 304 Prometheus 1995)
Male honour rests between a woman’s thighs! Such a society is repulsive to those who support human rights, freedom, equality for men and women and egalitarian laws where religious dictates do not control our laws or government.
Hopefully we will fight to ensure that women are valued as equal human beings with men and women have complete control of their body and their own sexuality without fear of violence or persecution.
