Muslim Women Disfigured By Acid – by Phyllis Chesler


Pakistan Domestic Violence

[Visit Pajamas Media]

These photos show what happens to real women who wear the Islamic Veil. The photos depict horrifying hate and the unbearable suffering it inflicts upon female innocents. The photos were taken by Emilio Morenatti of the Associated Press. The text is based on work done by Nicholas Kristof—one of the few people at the New York Times whose work I am proud to quote. You may find them HERE. (Thanks to Yehuda for calling this to my attention).

What are we seeing?

The Arabization or the Saudi-ization of Muslims in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Pakistan is the hidden hand behind these acid attacks upon women. These poor girls and women have had their lives ruined; some have been forced to undergo surgery 20-30 times in order that they may see a little, or breathe a bit, hear something, perhaps in order to eat or make themselves understood. They look like…monsters. That was what their attackers wanted to accomplish. To render their faces into self-portraits of their attackers.

Why was acid thrown into their faces? The main reasons are because they dared to reject someone in marriage or because they wanted a divorce. The “jilted” suitors (or husbands) took their revenge in this fashion. If he can’t have her, no man will; I will make sure that no man will ever want her.” One young girl was gang-raped aftger which her rapists threw acid on her face. Another committed the “crime” of disappointing her father by being born female, not male. Many were disfigured as a result of a “family dispute.”

Thus, the punishment for being born female, for exercising any will of one’s own is, Saudi-style, the most horrible punishment. The men tried to make the women loathsome to humanity, to sentence them to painful surgeries, self-hatred, perhaps to lives lived in isolation.

Make no mistake. This tendency to disfigure women–even those who wear the Islamic Veil–is real. And, it might be coming our way if we do not stop the Wahhabi and Salafi influence which is funding our universities in North America as well as the Islamic religious schools.

For once, I will leave aside the question of what must be done and allow the photos to speak to you.

    Every American should see this video !

    The ambition of Islam to conquer the world.
    For centuries Islam of the militants have been on the march to conquer the world. We did not notice because we chose not to notice. The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in1920 by Hassan al-Banna in Egypt and was in deep confrontation with the Egyptian government. The current goals for Islam to achieve global domination for a Muslim Caliphate: a world under strict Islamic “Sharia” law, pulling Muslims back to the 7th Century.

    I agree with Robert, every American should see this report.

    It is heartbreaking and obscene to see these women tortured and murdered in the name of a religion. Just down the street from me, a Muslim father ran his teenage daugther over and killed her because she wanted to be a normal American teen. Then the coward fled the country.

    These are monsters hiding behind a vicious religion to terrorize women. Period.

    Christian writings refer to qualities in terms of sheep.
    Muslims are more inclined towards the goat.
    Says it all.

    This is just disgusting and these photos very disturbing. It's so sad that these Muslim women have no rights and are disfigured but men who treat dogs better.

    Travesty…The Moslem Invasion of Europe began 20 years ago…now it's coming to North America…I fear for what life will be like for my kids and grand-kids.

    WAKE UP AMERICA. WAKE UP ALREADY!!

    It's only Muslims who commit these crimes because these are “religiouly” sanctioned by Quran. Until this cult is removed from this universe, we will be seeing these and worse crimes. Amazingly, Muslims do not consider these as crimes, only as the punishment ordered by Mo/allah through his green book Quran for not obeying him.

  • tickletik

    You don't need to show it to every American. What is needed is for every the Young Republicans across the country to have a day publicizing this with large poster images in every college they can. At the same time on the same day.

    This way, even if such an event is shut down in half, or 3/4 of the colleges (in the name of “free speech”) nevertheless the matter will be impossible to ignore.

    Let some leftist, granola eating moron try to ignore a photo of a woman with her face melted by a Jihadi bastard. I'm sure they'll manage, but we can at least get to watch them squirm for once. If we're lucky a few of those heartless doublethinking cretins will even have a bit of an emotional meltdown themselves. I love it when liberals go haywire when confronted by facts and cold logic.

    Light this damn fire up.

    postscript:
    I'm going to send this to a couple of conservative publications with the above comment, I'm also going to try to find the email addresses of a few Young Republican organizations on college campuses and send them a link to this. I'd like it if any other commenters who read this comment do the same.

    I bust on something stupid Chessler comes out with last week, and she comes up with something as compelling and unarguable as this the next. What a pleasant surprise, now if she'd just give up on trying to headshrink.

    God have mercy on the male that does something like this, 'cause I'm fresh out.

  • thinker1

    And some imbeciles from our Supreme Court want to accept and adapt other countries customs and laws…..Hey, let's adapt cutting heads of our enemies off, dear R.B. Ginsburg, starting with that killer Malik.

    To read about or hear of the violence and disfigurations that Muslim women have had to endure is already bad enough. To have seen these photos is to realize how utterly horrifying these womens' situations are!

  • kafir4life

    Just wait until barry and company get their show trial for their AQ pals in NYC. I'm hopeful to finally hear the truth, that the US is guilty of allowing these pious gentlemen the ability to practice their faith as the pedophile mohamandcheese commanded. Fianlly, the failthful will be allowed and encouraged to kill the unbelievers. No doubt that were the gutter cult of islam is concerned that the ACLU and the 9th cicuit court will stand by 100%, and any attempt to prevent a pious muslim from carry out these religious mandates will be considered a hate crime.

    Thanks Barry!!!

    Notice that many of these women had the money to have repeated surgeries.
    What happens to women with no such resources ? Why does Islam HATE women ?
    I am serious, why ? I want to know. Why do Muslim men HATE women ?
    What are they so afraid of ?

    where are the feminists – hello? your silence is deafening

  • Oeditex

    Liberals always claim they’re for the oppressed and the downtrodden, yet they routinely advocate and support some of the world’s worst tyrants – Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, Mao Zedong, Yasir Arrifat, Taliban, Khmer rouge, the Hamas, etc., etc., etc.. Why is that? Why do those 'Statists' say one thing, yet completely do another? Why do liberals claim to be for women’s rights, yet they have no problem with Muslim extremists in Afghanistan cutting off the nose and ears of a woman trying to leave her abusive family?

  • DeclareTruth

    Just figures – the photos have been removed. I have seen these photos before and I can see why the muslims would want to have them removed. I also see why they force the women to cover their faces – they don't want the rest of the world to know what a satan-inspired "religion" gets people to do to each other. It might stretch the credibility of that "religion of peace" bull.
