“Islam Is RIGHT About Women”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In the quiet suburb of Winchester, Massachusetts, signs have been found posted on poles, all bearing the enigmatic statement “Islam is RIGHT about women.” No one seems to know what the statement is meant to mean. Some are unconcerned, but for many there is unease, likely prompted by the predictable desire to claim that this is an example of islamophobia. In this view, the person who put up the signs “Islam is RIGHT about women” meant through sarcasm to mock Islam and its true Believers.

Another possibility is that the statement means exactly what it says. A True Believer put up the signs. He – or a not impossible she – wanted to make a statement in defense of Islam and what islamocritics describe as its misogyny. The statement in this view is to be taken at defiant face value. We Muslims are correct in our treatment of women; Islam is “RIGHT” to treat men and women unequally. That treatment is not detailed in the laconic sign, but you who read this sign can fill in the details for yourselves by consulting the Qur’an. Here are some of them: Islam is “RIGHT” to have women hide their dangerous seductiveness by covering themselves, in everything from just a hijab to the full cover of niqab, burka, and chador. Islam is “RIGHT” to endorse polygyny, and to allow husbands, but not wives, the triple-talaq divorce. Islam is “RIGHT” to insist that daughters should ordinarily inherit half of what sons inherit, and to insist that the testimony of a woman should be worth only half that of a man.

There is still another possibility. Perhaps someone deliberately put up this bit of deliberately ambiguous mystification in order to attract the greatest amount of attention and discussion. And the planned puzzlement worked. The story of the signs posted in Winchester, Massachusetts has for several days, according to Google’s English version, been one of the three most cited stories about Islam in the United States. The intent of the poster was neither to straightforwardly praise nor through sarcasm to blame Islam, but to start discussions, not just in Winchester, but everywhere that the story was reported, about what the gnomic statement was intended to say. Was it meant to be taken, literally, as true, or sarcastically, as false? Or as a prompt to detailed examination of the view of women in the ideology of Islam?

Those discussions, prompted by the signs and their massive coverage, would necessarily require an examination of what Islam teaches about women, their need for cover, their abilities, their islamically correct behavior, their necessary subservience to men as their natural superiors. Such discussions, wherever they take place, will quite naturally lead to examination of such Qur’anic verses as 4:34, where Muslim men are told they may “beat” their wives if they even suspect them of disobedience, and the men are furthermore instructed in the same verse that they are the guardians of their wives because of their superior abilities. Islamocritics will be able to point to that verse. The goal is to get a discussion going, one in which islamocritics will be able to introduce those subjects in a non-hostile manner, by presenting themselves in the role of innocent, youth-wants-to-know inquirers.

Here is how one of those islamocritics might raise such questions with Muslims:

“I, too, have wondered about those posts in Winchester, the ones that read “Islam was RIGHT about women.” I have made a list of some of the questions that trouble me about the treatment of women in Islam, so please help me out here. First is the Qur’anic verse that allows husbands to “beat” their wives if they suspect they have been disobedient. I have seen Muslim authorities online explain that a husband does indeed have full rights to beat his wife, and other authorities explain that the husband can only beat his wife ‘lightly,’ as if with a miswak, or small toothbrush? Which is true?

“Then I wonder about the need for cover. Why are some Muslim women forced to wear the hijab or, in a still more extensive cover, the niqab or burka or chador? Isn’t this based on the idea that women must in public hide their attractiveness? Doesn’t this assume, wrongly, that Muslim men can’t control their libidos, and the seductiveness of women must be hidden from view? Do you think a woman who object to such cover should be punished? Recently in Iran, a few dozen women were sentenced to prison for refusing to wear the hijab; their female lawyer was sent to prison for 38 years merely for defending them. Do you think that a just result? Do you think Muslim women should have as much right to refuse, as to adopt, such cover? Do you really think Muslim men are incapable of holding their libidos in check when they see uncovered women?

“Another question: why can Muslim husbands take up to four wives, while a Muslim wife can have only one husband? Doesn’t this devalue women? And why should a Muslim husband be able to divorce his wife simply by uttering the triple talaq, while Muslim wives have a more complicated process, in which their stated reason for divorce will be examined for its validity by religious authorities – it may be turned down – and they are also required to  return the mahr (the sum given to the bride by the groom at marriage)?

“Why do sons in Islam get to inherit twice as much as daughters? And why is the testimony of a Muslim woman worth only half that of a Muslim man? I [the islamocritic] have read that in a hadith Muhammad justifies this last rule about the lesser worth of a woman’s testimony by referring to “the deficiency of her [woman’s] intelligence”? Did Muhammad actually say that? And do Muslims believe that today? What can they answer?”

These are the questions an islamocritic will be able to raise naturally, in discussing the conceivable meaning of “Islam was RIGHT about women.” They will hover permanently in the air, because Muslims will be unable to provide satisfactory answers to these questions. And that is what I allow myself to believe was the whole intent of the enigmatic posts in the first place.

      Islam is indeed right about women. Evil as Islam is, they haven’t bought into Satans gender confusion that has destroyed western culture and put and end to families.
      Western women are now slaves to corporations and children no longer have moms, they have egg donor mothers.
      I bet Islam doesnt have 50% of its babies born bastards like in the united states. They have moms. They have moms who know what functions God made women for and they do not abdicate their roles as women in order to try to be men.
      And they certainly don’t allow their wenches to take on positions of authority that women simply do not have the natural authority to function in.
      One of the reasons cops now have to shoot so often is that back when men were MEN and a cop got in some assholes face and told him to settle down or he was going to get cuffed and put into the cruiser, the criminal knew the cop meant business and had the natural authority of being a man to back it up.
      Now that the standards for everything have been lowered, when some girl gets in a grown mans face about something thinking she can get away with it just because she has a uniform, she risks becoming a victim, because the criminal will just laugh in her silly face.
      Which means that police departments now have to heavily focus on training that involves using weapons rather than the natural authority that comes with being a large grown man.
      And of course now even most male cops are little sawed off pussies that should be selling cell phones or working in a bank, certainly not in a job that requires physical confrontation and the ability to subdue a nutcase on a rage.

      Islam does indeed have the social structure and gender roles of their society exactly as God intended, and as they are equipped for.
