often told my daughter that she should be grateful every day that she grew up
in a country whose view of women has been shaped by Christianity.
that women have been made in the image of God, and are full co-heirs along with
men of the gracious gift of eternal life. Spiritually, they stand as full
equals before the throne of God.
Islam, on the other
hand, teaches that women may be beaten into submission by their husbands. The
supreme court of the United Arab Emirates has confirmed that, by just recently
issuing a ruling affirms that, yes, indeedy, it is a fundamental right of an
Islamic male to administer beatings to his wife.
The most prominent Muslim
cleric in the world, the head of Al-Azhar University in Cairo, said in 2007
that husbands may beat their wives, and such beatings may include “punching”
and “shoving.” Yep, it’s a-ok under Islam for a man to go Mike Tyson on
his wife and push her down the stairs.
Islam not only
teaches hatred of Jews and Christians as a matter of divine principle, it hates
women too. Americans should oppose the mainstreaming of this demonic
counterfeit with every fiber of their being. It is systematically anti-Christian,
anti-American, anti-Semitic, and anti-female.
Student Association organizations to form on college campuses is a particular
form of treasonous folly. According to the Weekly Standard, “Over the last
decade, more than a dozen students from British universities have either
carried out or been convicted of terrorist offenses.” Included among them is
the Christmas Day bomber, who was president of the student Islamic society at
University College London.)
Women are little
more than chattel in Islam and which has a perfectly miserable record when it
comes to rights and liberties for the fairer sex. Interestingly, the U.N.
agrees, perhaps without even realizing it.
At the same time
Islamic countries are trying to convince the U.N. to make criminals out of
anyone in the world who would utter a critical word about the religion of
Muhammad, two reports - one from the U.N. itself - have emerged that are
devastating for defenders of Islam. We’d better digest the content of these
studies before it becomes illegal to do so.
As CNSNews reports, on Wednesday of this
week the U.N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) released its
2010 report on the status of women around the world. The report measures the
school enrollment rate of girls of primary school age, the literacy rate of
adult women, and female representation in parliamentary bodies.
The seven countries
in the world with the biggest gap of female enrollment in primary school
compared to male enrollment are - no surprise - all Islamic countries.
Of the seven
countries with the worst literacy rates of women compared to men, five are
Islamic. And of the 28 countries at the bottom of the heap in overall female
literacy, 20 are Islamic countries.
And the only
countries in the world with no female representatives whatsoever in their
governing bodies are all Arab Gulf states, Islamic one and all.
To make things even
worse, the World Economic Forum produced its annual Global Gender Gap report
this week, which measures gaps between men and women in economic participation,
educational achievement, political empowerment, and health and survival.
Once again, in every
category the worst-performing nations in the world are almost without exception
Islamic. Of the 20 nation states at the bottom of this barrel, 17 of them are
under Sharia law.
Jesus taught us that
every tree is known by its fruit. The fruit of the Islamic tree is bitter
indeed, especially if you are a woman. Even the U.N. says so.
