Punishing the Victims of Islamic Gender Apartheid?

Pages: 1 2

She is marked for certain death.

Her final hearing takes place on Friday, January 14, 2011. If American Immigration decides to deport her back to her Muslim family in Africa, she will, without doubt, first be genitally mutilated and then honor murdered for insisting on remaining a Christian, for having fled an arranged Muslim marriage—and for having secretly married a Christian man.

I doubt she will be able to take her case to the United Nations. After all, that august body has condemned free speech/truth speech as hate speech, especially where Islam is concerned. Incredibly, presumably “progressive” European countries have increasingly launched criminal investigations against their own politicians, human rights activists, academics for daring to tell the truth about Islamic gender apartheid if that truth shows Islam in a negative light.

On January 24, 2011, the distinguished Lars Hedegaard, the President of the Danish Free Press Society and the International Free Press Society, will stand trial for telling the truth about Islamic gender apartheid. According to Ahmed Mohamud, the Vice President of The Danish Free Press Society, and Katrine Winkel Holm, Chief Editor of Sappho, the Society’s magazine, both Lars Hedegaard and Jesper Langballe, a member of the Danish Parliament, are accused of committing “hate speech.” Langballe exposed honor killings among Muslims; on December 3,   2010, he was convicted for doing so. As I noted in my piece at NewsReal Blog, Lars Hedegaard dared to discuss the great number of family rapes in areas dominated by Muslim culture.

I have published two major academic studies about honor killings and have written many articles about individual cases. I have also been called upon to testify in court cases for potential Muslim honor killing victims who are seeking asylum in America. Will I, too, someday be tried as a “racist”? Will such asylum seekers themselves be one day tried as criminals for exposing the horrendous violence they have escaped in the hope that the West will be a sanctuary for them? What will happen to them and to their advocates if telling the truth about Islam becomes a punishable offense in America?

To date, the highest profile apostate and potential honor killing case concerns the very young Rifqa Bary. I was privileged  to work with her lawyers in both Florida and Ohio and hope that my affidavit was helpful. Bary’s lawyers did manage to keep her out of her family’s clutches and won a “fast track” to a green card and to citizenship.

Within a fourteen month period, I was approached by three sets of lawyers and by one advocate.

I submitted an affidavit for a second asylum-seeker whose case may be unique. She has fled a Western European country because she fears that her father and other male relatives will murder her for having secretly converted from Islam to Christianity. I urged the judge in her case to understand that just because a woman has fled from a European democracy does not mean that she has necessarily fled from a Western environment. Her immigrant family inhabits a bubble in which wife-battering is routine, living on welfare is seen as more dignified than taking a menial job, and spying on one’s daughter to be sure that she never talks to men or has any non-Muslim girlfriends is not considered invasive  but honorable.

This young woman told me that her father flew into instant rages over the smallest things; he once hit her mother when she brought him food not to his liking. He threw a table at his daughter because she was too quiet. He would then threaten her with a knife and say, “I’m not afraid of the police because I can kill myself too.” If mere silence could set off this level of violence, one can only imagine how he might respond if he discovered that she had converted to Christianity.

I also submitted an affidavit on behalf of a third woman who is desperately trying to stay in the United States. She cannot risk returning to her South Asian country. Her crime? She dared to marry a man whom she loved but who belonged to a different sect of Islam; she did so against her parents’ wishes. Her family is an elite and prominent family which would risk a loss of reputation if they did not punish a defiant daughter.

    PHYLLIS: "Will I, too, someday be tried as a “racist”?"

    ANSWER: Depends on whether or not the liberal narrative triumphs in our society and its institutions.

    • Wayne

      So true.

  • kafir4life

    Hang on here. So lets say someone were to point out how the gutter-cult of islam, practiced by over a billion retrograde sub-humans, that was invented by a pedophilic ranting madman named mohamat, who during a particular bad bout of intestinal distress following sex with, then a meal from the pig that gave birth to him that caused him to expell as feces the contents of what we now know as the terror guide the koran and made up the false moon god allah, would that person be saying something illegal, albiet absolutely true? That doesn't seem right.

    • Junkyard dog

      Gee,I wish we knew what you really feel. LOVE IT!! Couldn't have said it more profoundly. Islam= Blood Cult!

    Have the immigration departments of the USA and Canada been infiltrated by extreme leftists who deny the reality of violence against women within Islam? This story is deeply troubling. I think the tough lines should be drawn around the many known Islamic terrorists who live in both Canada and the USA, who are undoubtedly laughing triumphantly at their ability to live in the west, mostly on welfare, and have no fear of deportation. Surely there is room in either of these countries for one vulnerable and terrified African woman who fears for her life.

  • Diana

    Great article on a horrible problem. But…what can we DO? Is there a legal fund we can contribute to? An official we can inundate with calls and emails? A petition we can sign? And shouldn't our new Republican house majority draft a law to address this
    ongoing, growing problem? The USA should be a refuge for the huddled masses of
    women fleeing oppression under Islam.

    Few people realize the extent to which Islam, the proxies of Saudi Arabia, and ESPECIALLY the Saudi-funded Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the American government, business, and academia.

    The Saudi government and royal family donate billions to the liberal arts, humanities, and (of course) MIddle Eastern studies programs on college campuses around the US.

    They have trillions in our stock market.

    The two largest oil companies – Chevron and especially Exxonmobil have a monopoly on oil imported from the Middle East and control much of the world's oil supply – which means they are one of the primary tools used by the Saudi's to influence policy AND as they are primarily controlled by the Rockefeller family they move heaven and earth to use their offices to support Saudi concerns.

    The whole goal is to control Washington, businesses, and our college campuses long enough to put in place a Sharia-dominated-and-compliant polity in the West populated by Islamists and useful idiots who will move to make the West fully submit to the takeover by Islam and to bring about the victory of Islam over all mankind..

    What a sad state of affairs we are in; we allow an open flow of drugs and violence and illegals from Mexico but deny asylum to women who will be killed if they return to their Islamic countries. The real "hate crimes" are committed by those who lie about Islam and the politicians and press who happily pretend to be good and caring as they embrace the evils of relativism, tolerance of any and all evil and sinful behavior, social justice instead of equal justice, and the destruction of our families, our culture and our country, and with it the only chance for freedom.

    But why is this surprising from the left who glories in the destruction of the unborn and thirsts for blood? Not a peep from the liberated feminists. It makes sense when you understand the real motives of the left. They have chosen death over life and all that encompasses. The only life they care about is their own and their mission is to spread their filthy propaganda so others can share in their filth and make themselves feel important. It never had anything to do with compassion or true empathy for women. It was all about power, money and making themselves feel good.

  • garretso

    If our country stood on it's principles, there would be no issue. Countries, organizations, or individuals that allow or condone such behavior – mutilating humans, denying freedom of thought – should be afforded NO respect, protection or cooperation.

  • dawning

    Is slime is not a problem it is THE problem. It has engulfed the entire world in its hate, murder, mayhem and mutilation. I believe there was reported, on this site, that there would be 2 thousand mutilations in BRITAN this year and nothing? anyone can do to stop it??? All I know is that we had better start finding a way and bringing this damnable curse to the forefront of importance while there is still time to stop it

  • dumbledoresarmy

    In the case of the African Christian woman, secretly married to another Christian, who is in danger of being sent back to a forced marriage to a Muslim, and also in the case of the girl who has apostasised from Islam within a western European country and is seeking asylum in America because she fears the sharia-enforcers in Europe: cannot the churches – in Canada and in the USA – be alerted and make noise? Does the 'Barnabas Fund' know about these two cases? They were aware of Rifqa Bary and told her story to their quite extensive membership. Last year they conducted a campaign to raise awareness of Islam's apostasy law – the law that requires death for those who leave Islam – among politicians in the Anglosphere, submitting petitions and writing letters to parliamentarians in Canada, Australia and Britain and, I think, also contacting US politicians. Has anyone brought the African Christian woman's case directly before Canadian PM Stephen Harper? – I would suggest that someone like Nonie Darwish or Barnabas Fund director Canon Patrick Sookhdeo, once fully briefed, could make a good case.

  • Richard

    Thank you very much for your great work specially for Rifqa. May the Good Lord bless you!

  • Erik Osbun

    English Common law and Sharia law are incompatible, like matter and anti-matter. The right thing to do in North America and Europe is to make a law that outlaws Sharia law
    and to enforce it. What Sharia law does to women should make all Muslims ashamed.

  • ajnn

    There nis a massive amount of 'feminist' immigration fraud and several outright wacky and anti-legal laws giving special privileges to women.

    My question: do the laws protect women abused by their husbands but not their families ? There may be a problem with the drafting of the law that gives instant immigration status to an abused woman in that it only covers abuse from the husband.

    Did the feminists who drafted this law make a big mistake ? ideology…….

  • DrBukk

    We could start by banning the burqa in public. The welfare offices should cross check addresses and we should immediately deport any polygamous families. I think the CIA is monitoring mosques, but has one imam ever been deported?
    And BTW, where is academia, geneticists and social sciences when it comes to the depraved dynamics of the Muslim family ?

    • Wayne

      In answer to your last question, they appear to be in the firm control of the leftist socialists who really don't care about Women's Rights, Minority Rights or What's Right. They only care about obtaining power and they will jump into bed with the Devil himself to achieve that end.

  • guest

    Muhammad is a pig!

  • Wayne

    Thank you once again Phyllis…. for keeping these gross injustices in the public view. The Liberal/Islamist coalition must be stopped.

  • Esther

    I wanted to share this article on Facebook but when I tried, the image that appeared beside the article was one of the POTUS as a radical.

    Can this please be rectified? If I want to post about the POTUS as a radical, I will.

    Thank you Phyllis for fighting for these women.

  • Ciderkiss

    I find it funny how everything here is blamed on feminist or the left when Islam and sharia lawl is Ultra Conservatism. Blame it on the left. Such bull. Feminist do more than their fair share of ringing the alarm so stop acting like you are the main ones who care.

  • Joyce

    I would like to see a book written containing a story about each honor killing or plight of women in your article today. One big fat book filled with excruciating details of what these women faced and then get it out on the market where more people will be exposed to the truth.

    The spirit of the law – is greater then the letter. You can have a zillion statute laws–all leading to bondage of their own oppression; because the law is not within them. Mohammedans have the assumption that Common Law is not of God. Not of God because it was made by man. That is incorrect–because Common Law was handed to us personally at Calvary. The Mohammedan–like the Jew and even Papist(one could also include the Calvinist but luckily an incliniation of the grace of Christ keeps them from ultimate regression) are unable to fathom such law observance. The faithful of Protestant Christianity insynch with Natural Law have the unwritten ordinace(s) of Christ written upon their heart, soul and mind.
