Liberated TwitTo examine the gross inequality of women in Islam would take a book so I will only look at the few sad claims for equality posed by Ms PAMELA K. TAYLOR, co-founder, Muslims for Progressive Values in her ‘Islam good’ article following that little beheading in the US. .  Her claims re beating have been discussed in Mohammad struck child wife Aisha HARD .

Ms Taylor (and others) tries to tell us Islam treats women as equals.   While one might wish that was so, the reality is Islam is vicious and repressive in every way to women.  Why waste time twisting and contorting text, hiding most text, ignoring abrogation of text, ignoring laws in the hope that somehow it could become even vaguely humane and equitable to women (let alone non-Muslims!)  Why not leave and expose Islam for what it is, evil to women, and non-Muslims!

Why should we worry about Islam’s true text and laws?  Because Muslim men marry our daughters under the guise that Islam is good for women and our daughters frequently find themselves in hell as books and personal testimonies reveal.   Islamic violence and repression of women occurs here against our laws and ideals while attempts are made to introduce sharia in our countries and women suffer under Islam in the Islamic world.
 
Try this :
Abu dawud -Book 11, Number 2135: Narrated Qays ibn Sa'd: ......When I came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him), I said: I went to al-Hirah and saw them prostrating themselves before a satrap of theirs, but you have most right, Apostle of Allah, to have (people) prostrating themselves before you. He said: Tell me, if you were to pass my grave, would you prostrate yourself before it? I said: No. He then said: Do not do so. If I were to command anyone to make prostration before another I would command women to prostrate themselves before their husbands, because of the special right over them given to husbands by Allah.
Ms Taylor sells us the ‘domestic partners as the Qur'an teaches and the Prophet modeled for them.’
 
Somehow the true Islamic scholars do not see Islam from the same angle as Ms Taytor does.

Now let’s see, Mohammad had 9/11/13 or possibly 23, 28 wives and many concubines and Muslim men can have 4 wives at a time and as many women on his right hand as he can get hold of  to enjoy.  Let’s not try the ‘just saving the widows’ line either as Aisha certainly wasn’t a widow and some of  Mohammad’s other young wives/concubines became widows taken for his enjoyment after he slaughtered their husbands and tribe.  Remember wives can be changed at a whim, men can marry children, and there’s those misyar (sunni marriages where men have secret extra wives but the women aren’t entitled to anything) and mu’ta marriages (Shiite practice where temporary wives are taken for a short set period for a small fee)  All this continues today under allah’s laws supported by text.   Equality?
 
Women can only have sex with their husband—step outside this and you will be locked in a room until death (Koran 4.15) or stoned to death (Mohammad reintroduced stoning and stoned women eg Bukhari Vol 3 Book 38 No. 508,  V3 B50 No.885,  V8 B82 No. 809;  Muslim book 17 No’s 4214,4216,4218..; Abu dawud Book 38 Nos.  4426,  4429; Maliks muwatta Book 41 No. 41.1.1 etc!)

Koran 4.15
If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, Take the evidence of four (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or Allah ordain for them some (other) way.

Abu-Dawud Book 38, Number 4429: Narrated Abu Bakrah:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) had a woman stoned and a pit was dug up to her breasts.
Yet Ms Taylor claims ‘To be sure, domestic violence is indeed against the teachings of Islam, and murder of family members is especially repugnant.’

Right!!  Read Mohammad struck child wife Aisha hard (this site) to see Mohammad using violence and mentioning ‘kindness’ in the same sermon where he also told men to beat disobedient women.
The Qur'an teaches that men should remain with their wives in kindness, or separate from their wives with kindness, and specifically that they should not stay with their wives in order to do harm to them (2:229, 2:231). It offers a vision of spousal equality when it prescribes a decision making process within the family of mutual consultation (2:233), and labels both husband and wife with the term "zauj" (4:1 and others) and describes them as protecting garments for one another (2:187).

The Muslim male can pronounce a one, two or 3 fold divorce with the 3 fold being irrevocable while the others give him a chance to decide if he’ll keep her or dump her!  Women have no such rights.
Koran sura 2.229
Divorce must be pronounced twice and then (a woman) must be retained in honour or released in kindness. And it is not lawful for you that ye take from women aught of that which ye have given them; except (in the case) when both fear that they may not be able to keep within the limits (imposed by) Allah. And if ye fear that they may not be able to keep the limits of Allah, in that case it is no sin for either of them if the woman ransom herself. ...
Daad Nohammad

This says if hubby has not given a full divorce, he can choose to keep his wife or expel her  (regardless of her wishes–also sura 2.231), or she can pay to buy her freedom.   This is Islamic law—if a female wants a divorce, she has to get his permission and pay him for it (Reliance: law n5.0 P562-563)!  Any ‘kindness’ does not preclude the male beating or ploughing his wife like his field, enjoying her as he wishes, another right given to Muslim men (sura 2.223, *Abu dawud Book 11, Number 2159:  Reliance laws m5.1, 5.4, 5.6 pp525-526, m10.1 p538,     m10.12 (3) p541,   w45.1 p948)  Her rights are to get a set amount of food, clothing and a  roof, his are to get her body and obedience (control  over her) though he is not obliged to have intercourse with her (Reliance law 10.5 p539).

Ms Taylor leaves out sura 2.230
Koran2.230
So if a husband divorces his wife (irrevocably), He cannot, after that, re-marry her until after she has married another husband and He has divorced her. In that case there is no blame on either of them if they re-unite,.....
This lovely bit says if hubby has divorced his wife irrevocably then decides he wants her after all, he can’t use her again until someone else has married and ‘enjoyed her’  then divorced her.   This is found frequently in hadiths (*Bukhari Vol 7, Book 63, No.s  186, 187) and is sharia eg Reliance law n7.7 P565.   Sura 2.232 says once they are divorced they can go back to a former husband.  So much for keeping the family together---the woman is just an object to be shared around and enjoyed!

Family consultation:  Ms Taylor notes sura 2.233 where babies can be weaned by ‘mutual consent’ or a wet nurse hired.   How sweet or could there be other reasons why a husband may be concerned about his wife’s breast feeding?  Does it interfere with his conjugal rights?   Women can’t fast without their husband’s permission or while he’s present (Reliance  law p42.2 (3) p682, *Bukhari Vol 7, Book 62, No. 120,  123) --joint decision making or fulfilling his sexual demands ?
 
Suckling bearded man
Suckling a male became a means of allowing the male to visit you!!
Abu Dawud Book 13, Number 2453:   Narrated AbuSa'id al-Khudri:
A woman came to the Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) while we were with him.
She said: Apostle of Allah, my husband, Safwan ibn al-Mu'attal, BEATS me when I pray, and makes me break my fast when I keep a fast, and he does not offer the dawn prayer until the sun rises.
He asked Safwan, who was present, about what she had said. He replied: Apostle of Allah, as for her statement "he beats me when I pray", she recites two surahs (during prayer) and I have prohibited her (to do so).
He (the Prophet) said: If one surah is recited (during prayer), that is sufficient for the people.
(Safwan continued:) As regards her saying "he makes me break my fast," she dotes on fasting; I am a young man, I cannot restrain myself.
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said on that day: A woman should not fast except with the permission of her husband. .....

Note that Mohammad sides with the husband and does NOT tell him to stop beating his wife or respect her religious needs over his sexual ones!   And if a wife’s breast feeding interferes with hubby’s fun?
 
Suckling is regarded as we would regard ‘blood relations’ so who suckled who is important in determining who hubby can have sex with and is very problematic when checking if people shared the same wet nurse as this precludes marriage.   If a woman (biological mother or wet nurse) feeds a child then her husband becomes the father and he cannot marry the child plus a whole set of complex prohibitions on marriage/sex comes into play (Reliance law 12.0-4 pp 575-577).
 
Beat your wife if she suckles your slave girl so you can’t have sex with  her:
Maliks Muwatta Book 30, Number 30.2.13:   ..........Abdullah ibn Umar replied, 'A man came to Umar ibn al-Khattab and said, 'I have a slave-girl and I used to have intercourse with her. My wife went to her and suckled her. When I went to the girl, my wife told me to watch out, because she had suckled her!' Umar told him to BEAT his wife and to go to his slave-girl because kinship by suckling was only by the suckling of the young.' "

Cunning Aisha and suckling—Suckling a male became a means of allowing the male to visit you!!
Malik Muwatta Book 30, Number 30.2.12:   (More on suckling -***Maliks Muwatta Book 30, Number 30.1.1:   Also Book 30.1.2)
Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab that he was asked about the suckling of an older person. ……………"Sahla bint Suhayl who was the wife of Abu Hudhayfa, and one of the tribe of Amr ibn Luayy, came to the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and said, 'Messenger of Allah! We think of Salim as a sAbused Muslimah on (adopted- but Mohammad cancelled adoption to marry his daughter-in-law Zainab who previously would have been forbidden! )  and he comes in to see me while I am uncovered. We only have one room, so what do you think about the situation?' The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, 'Give him five drinks of your milk and he will be mahram by it.' She then saw him as a foster son. A'isha umm al-muminin took that as a precedent for whatever men she wanted to be able to come to see her. She ordered her sister, Umm Kulthum bint Abi Bakr as-Siddiq and the daughters of her brother to give milk to whichever men she wanted to be able to come in to see her……….

AND
Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 39:   Narrated 'Aisha:
that the Prophet entered upon her while a man was sitting with her. Signs of anger seemed to appear on his face as if he disliked that. She said, "Here is my (foster) brother." He said, "Be sure as to who is your foster brother, for foster suckling relationship is established only when milk is the only food of the child."
Yes sir, breast feeding is more than just a cosy decision between husband and wives or wet nurses! Remember the ‘breatfeeding fatwa’ so men and women could work together  eg Al-Azhar Lecturer Suspended after Issuing Controversial Fatwa Recommending Breastfeeding of Men by Women in the Workplace May 25, 2007  (reference)

Garments for all:
Ms Taylor refers to the ‘protecting’(?) garments –sura 2.187

Koran 2.187
Permitted to you, on the night of the fasts, is the approach to your wives. They are your garments and ye are their garments. Allah knoweth what ye used to do secretly among yourselves; but He turned to you and forgave you; so now associate with them, and seek what Allah Hath ordained for you, and eat and drink, until the white thread of dawn appear to you distinct from its black thread; then complete your fast Till the night appears; but do not associate with your wives while ye are in retreat in the mosques. ....
We help to implement Sharia
More and more often Western administrations help to implement Sharia. Click HERE to watch this video.

This is the ‘eat, drink, and have sex all night’ of Ramadan but be pure –ie don’t touch polluting women (Koran 4.43, 5.6, 2.223) during the daytime fast.

As for garments—Well, a female has only one garment at a time but it isn’t even hers because she has to share it with other wives and concubines (garments the male has stolen from others) and has no control over it.  She is in constant fear of displeasing or failing in some way and losing her shared garment and possibly being punished.  
 
Her garment can be ripped off her without warning or compensation. She cannot throw the garment off whenever she likes, no matter how brutal or vile it is, and grab a new one or two or more.  She cannot steal garments from others.  No sir, she must be happy with the shared garment she gets and her proportion of its cover if she knows what’s good for her!   It’s highly likely she was never free to look around and choose her garment in the first place and she has no right to stop the garment being dropped on her even as a tiny child, or shared with many.
 
The Muslim male on the other hand can choose his garment or steal it from others.  He can have 4 at one time plus as many spares as he can grab and use.  He can have very new, young garments.  He can change his garments whenever he likes by simply throwing them out and getting new ones.   He has sole use of each of his garments—no sharing here!   He can use his garments as he wishes and punish them if they don’t please as he is in complete control of his garment.

Yes, that’s real Islamic equality!

Some reality:
In the koran Mary is the only woman mentioned by name, Mohammad’s wives are irrelevant and women are clearly well below men.  Men have permission to have sex with children (No iddat if you have not had sex with your wife Koran 33.49 but an iddat for pre-pubescent girls Koran 65.4),      plough women as they like (Koran 2.223,   2.222), beat women (Koran 4.34) and    enslave and have sex with slaves (Koran 23.1-7, 70.29-30, 4.24, 33.50..).  Women are described as polluting (Koran 4.43, 5.6, 2.222),   full of guile (Koran 12.22-34),   half brained (Koran 2.282), and spinners of lies (Koran 16.92).  Women can be locked in rooms till they die (Koran 4.15) and receive far less inheritance (Koran 4.11, 4.12, 4.176 –Khadija who inherited wealth from her second husband pre Mohammad would be horrified and one of Mohammad’s wives complained   *Umme Salmah (RA) said: "O Messenger of Allâh! The men wage Jihad [can collect booty] whereas we (women) do not and we receive half the inheritance."  i.e. blood-brothers receive double the share of blood sisters etc. Thereafter this, the verse "And do not covet.... 4.32 " was revealed.” (Ibn Katheer vl.1, pg.498)  And there’s more..
 
 
Allah's Way
 It's the way Allah wanted women
 
Even the Koran makes it clear men are superior eg only men are allah’s messengers (Koran 12.109, 16.43, 22.75) and men purify themselves (Koran 9.108) and keep their covenant with allah (Koran 33.23) and worship allah (Koran 24.37).   There were many perfect men but few women-Mary, Pharoah’s wife,( Aisha?) (* Bukhari Vol 4 Book 55 No. 623, also 4/55/643, 5/57/113, 7/65/329)   Female deities (Koran 53.19-22,  52.39,   37.149-50) and angels (Koran 53.27, 37.149-151) are unthinkable.

Surprisingly Taylor didn’t use the usual Koran 33.35 which simply says pray and serve allah to get to paradise but is often used to claim equality although there is no mention of equal treatment.    We all know women are devils (*Muslim book 8 No. 3240) and populate hell because they are ungrateful and deficient in their intelligence and religion and lead men astray (*Bukhari vol1 Book 6 No.301 also 3/31/172,   3/48/826, 1/2/28,  2/18/161,  2/24/541, 7/62/124,  Muslim Book 1 No. 142 etc!)  Anyway, Islamic paradise is just a brothel with eternal young virgins and boys like pearls for Muslim men (Koran, many verses) while the best a woman gets is one of her past husbands so she can watch him indulge his sexual excesses.   Lovely!

How is it we know all this and more yet Muslim women either don’t know or lie that Islam is good for women.   Perhaps the Muslim woman IS deficient in intelligence re Islam?   We, however, are not and must make sure the true horror of Islam and women is told to our daughters and friends and becomes well known in Australia and worldwide.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
 
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
