Where is NOW?????
Now our friends over at Anti-Strib have cornered the market on the dark side of Islam, which is one reason why I have stayed away from the subject, but there was a side to this story, that I didn't know if the men over there would pick up on which is why I decided to post on it.
"And earlier this year Australians were outraged when Lebanese Sheik Faiz Mohammed gave a lecture in Sydney where he informed his audience that rape victims had no one to blame but themselves. Women, he said, who wore skimpy clothing, invited men to rape them.
A few months earlier, in Copenhagen, Islamic mufti and scholar, Shahid Mehdi created uproar when – like his peer in Australia – he stated that women who did not wear a headscarf were asking to be raped.
And with haunting synchronicity in 2004, the London Telegraph reported that visiting Egyptian scholar Sheik Yusaf al-Qaradawi claimed female rape victims should be punished if they were dressed immodestly when they were raped. He added, “For her to be absolved from guilt, a raped woman must have shown good conduct.”
I only have one thing to say.... WHERE ARE THE CRIES OF OUTRAGE FROM THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF WOMEN????? Their silence on this speaks volumes about the American left.....
Update - Sequel over at Anti-Strib has a post this morning on this Times Online story...
"a Sharia judge who has ordered the punishment of women for not wearing headscarves, was uncompromising: “The tsunami was because of the sins of the people of Aceh.”
The silence you hear is the response of the American left....Womens rights???? What womens rights????
