Given the inexcusable act by the Biden administration of leaving Americans and our Afghan allies in Afghanistan, it’s time to take a hard look at Islam’s treatment of women and of non-Muslims to understand what these stranded people could face. This month’s installment will begin a study of the treatment of women under Islam.

Koran 4:34 gives us a flavor of women’s status in Islam: “Allah has made men superior to women because men spend their wealth to support them”….. and it continues, recommending beating the woman if she is disobedient.

Tragically, this inequality begins in childhood with the obligatory female genital mutilation (ROTT e4.3), the purpose of which is to keep girls chaste. FGM, as it is known, results in innumerable problems – many of them lifelong – such as pain when urinating, menstruating, having intercourse and giving birth; infections; shock; PTSD; and even death.

As children, even more threats to a young girl are introduced. Parents, according to the Reliance of the Traveller (ROTT o1.2 (4)), are not subject to retaliation for killing their children or grandchildren. Though the ROTT does not claim that only girls may be killed this way, the lower status of females makes it far more likely that they are most at risk. Sarah and Amina Said are Exhibit A.

Islamic marriages are to be modeled after Muhammad’s marriages, which implies that girls as young as six years old may be forcibly married to a man many times her age. Muhammad famously consummated his marriage to Aisha (whom he married at age six) when she was nine years old. Many of these young bodies can withstand neither intercourse nor pregnancy/delivery. Those who cannot die in the process. Those who can lose their childhood as they take on the role of parenthood while still children themselves.

  1. It seems like Americans would have recognized that electing Barack HUSSEIN Obama was going to be a horrible mistake. Even that giant clue was not enough to stop them from voting for Barack Hussein Obama so they would not be called racist…….Once Obama was sworn-in he was, and still is, protected by all complicit in putting him in office. Congress, both parties for example, because he is, “ineligibility protected”.

    People who allowed and assisted in the swearing-in of Barack Obama by John Roberts, (a total of 4 times), must protect the fraud Obama forever to protect themselves. Hillary was not supposed to lose as the promised in 2008 after Obama cover president…and certainly not to Obama’s biggest nemesis, Donald Trump…………America’s government and her military were given to her enemies in 2009 when “Obama” was sworn-in as the putative president and commander-in-chief of America’s military. The significance of removing Donald Trump the “birther” was shown by the Democrats voter fraud…made so flexible it did not matter how many more votes Trump legally got than did Biden, Biden was going to win…………

    In spite of how obvious Obama’s usurpation was and still is, it worked and even today it works because the investigators of Obama are also complicit in giving America’s government and her military to her enemies. Getting them to find themselves guilty of anything ain’t gonna happen………

    America…a nice place while it lasted………
