In the light of these poor Nigerian girls, abducted in the ‘name of Islam,’ it has struck me that there has been a remarkable absence of Burqa clad ladies standing up displaying those ‘bring back our girls’ notices in their support.
I wonder why that is? Well it could be they don’t give a damn. I think that unlikely. It could be they agree with the sentiments of the abductors. I feel that is also untrue. No I think the real reason is that their menfolk have ordered them not to. Basically you see most Islamic men believe in the inferiority of women. They want them to remain second class citizens. They don’t want their females too well educated, it frightens them; so although they may not agree with the methods used by this murderous bunch, most of them will certainly agree with their sentiments.

I wonder what happened to those women in Saudi Arabia, who were leading the protests against the ban on woman being allowed to drive? That’s all gone pretty quiet hasn’t it? No, believe me those protesters were squashed like bugs by the Saudi authorities. They had no chance. Islam is a man’s world. Women are merely chattels. The way they are treated under the yolk of Islam is almost beyond belief. Made to walk four or five paces behind their men. Stoned to death for adultery. Stripped of their marital status simply by their husband standing up in court and declaring ‘I divorce thee’ three times. Needing three or four male ‘witnesses’ before having rape proven.
The list simply goes on and on. Then to top it all, to comply with their ‘religion’ they are clad from head to foot in a black shroud. To me it’s the mentality of some of the women you see interviewed that amazes me. Women, whose eyes peer out from narrow slits and muffled voices actually condone these practices. I can only assume they are either, suffering from some form of phobia, simply brainwashed or mega masochistic.
As a final observation it is important to remember this is not a militant situation. This is not something that can be dismissed by ‘moderate’ Muslims as something perpetrated by a ‘small number’ of extremists in their midst. These practices are the norm among the followers of Islam. Well all I can say is on your own heads be it girls. And as a word to their menfolk, I think your fear of women is perfectly justified. I dread to think of the reaction of western ladies should you try and inflict these rules and regulations on them. Singing in shrill falsetto comes to mind!
And that’s about it. Thanks for all your mail. You know I can take it. Have a good week, and whatever ya do.
