“They Cut Off All My Hair While Hitting Me in the Face, Telling Me It’s for Not Obeying Allah and Wearing a Veil.”

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.

Remember the Hijab, the Burka and all the other accessories that say a Muslim woman is property are completely consensual. And only Orientalist racists say otherwise.

Also this Baghdad schoolteacher.

For Sumeya Abdullah, a 34-year-old primary school teacher in the capital Baghdad, life will never be the same again. In late June she had her legs burned by corrosive acid in a street attack because, she believes, she was not wearing her veil and the traditional ‘abaya’ covering common in many Middle Eastern countries.

“I was shopping in one of the most crowded districts in Baghdad when I felt my skin burning by something corrosive. It was horrible, a terrible pain, then I found myself in hospital,” Abdullah said.

Witnesses in the district where the attack happened, said that for more than two weeks, women have been targeted by acid attackers for dressing immodestly. Sometimes the assailants spray or throw the acid on foot, or on occasion, from a moving car. Other attacks have been even more shocking.

“A month ago I was walking from my college to my house when I was abducted in the street by three men. They dropped acid in my face and on my legs. They cut all my hair off while hitting me in the face many times telling me it’s the price for not obeying Allah’s wish in using the veil,” Hania Abdul-Jabbar, a 23-year-old university student, recounted.

“Today I cannot see out of one eye because the acid made me lose my vision. I am afraid to leave my house. Now I am permanently disfigured with a monster face,” she added with tears rolling down her swollen and scarred cheeks.

“Our country is a Muslim country and women should respect this by wearing veils and long cloaks. I’m against the use of acid against them but something should be done to force them into wearing the clothes,” Sheik Hussein Abbas, a radical Shi’ite leader in the capital, said.

On the scale of things he’s against and thinks need to be stopped, women not covering their faces clearly ranks above Muslim men throwing acid in women’s faces.

Despite the attacks, many women are refusing to bow to the will of religious extremists.”I won’t force myself to use something that I don’t feel comfortable with. Women in Iraq are losing their place in society and we have to fight that and determine who we are and how we should dress, despite these dangers,” Hiba Zuheir, 24, a resident of Mansour district, said.

    “Our country is a Muslim country and women should respect this by wearing veils and long cloaks. I’m against the use of acid against them but something should be done to force them into wearing the clothes,” Sheik Hussein Abbas, a radical Shi’ite leader in the capital, said.

    While he may seem radical in the eyes of most clueless Westerners, in the eyes of mainstream orthodox Muslims, on the other hand, he is as mainstream and orthodox as it gets! Indeed, when will these purveyors of myths stop portraying Islamic society as if it is as polite, evolved, and modern as our Western society, because it is not?

    On the scale of things he’s against and thinks need to be stopped, women not covering their faces clearly ranks above Muslim men throwing acid in women’s faces.

    On the scale of things, what is not mainstream or orthodox about his views in Islamic society? Have you been paying attention to what goes on in Islamic society with respect to females and non-Muslim infidels? Apparently not.

    Despite the attacks, many women are refusing to bow to the will of religious extremists.”

    Uhm…it’s not Islamic religious extremism. As a matter of fact, it is very ubiquitous in every Islamic country in the world including in Iraq, which means again that it is both as mainstream and orthodox as it gets in Islamic societies.

    Moreover, it is not religious mores that we are talking about here, it is Islamic totalitarianism instead, as sharia, which was enshrined in Iraq’s constitution with American acquiescence, approval and acceptance, is Islamic totalitarian law, which, by the way, proves the lie promoted by both Republican and Democrat politicians alike that Iraq is somehow a successful democracy today and an American victory and success story, because it’s not, it’s an Islamic totalitarian hellhole today just like all the others! Hence, the Iraq War, just like the Afghanistan War as well, is one of the greatest strategic blunders ever in American history, but the victory charade somehow continues to be promoted by our politicians and their benefactors in the press nonetheless…

    i am anti-religious but the phrase ‘ there for the grace of god’ springs to mind. Wish them luck, but I am not sure the rest of the world gives a damn. This is as a result of US & British intervention to ‘liberate’ the population…they’ve patted themselves on the back because the men are, they don’t care about the women. Women are shot for going to school (there have been articles on the taliban poisoning the water in a girls kindergarten) while international armies pull out. Of all the millions of military interventions in the world, not sure there have been any to specifically support women. It is almost as if the west concurs with the islamic idea of the invisible sex.

    They worship their Koran and Satan. Mohammad, wrote Islam’s book. Mohammad is a spokes person for Satan. Mohammad says it is good to kill all people not of Islam. That is in Mohammad’s koran.

      So what do you think about the god of the Old Testament commanding a husband to cut off his wife’s hand if she grabs the testicles of his enemy to fend off an attack? It’s in there, tough guy, look it up “fer yerself.”

    We have wasted our soldiers life, and our resources on this despicable culture. Now the same disease, those depraved are infiltrating the US and planning to get control of our Republic.

    So I would ask…..where are Beyonce, Madonna and all the others who say they want to promote freedom for women? Never where it makes any difference.

    • zerrubabel

      Not only that, Kristin, where are the rabid feminazis like say, Jane Fonda or even Hillary Clinton? Climbing higher on the Tower of Babel’s HYPROCRISY steps, looking down out from a window, and LAUGHING at everyone’s stupidity….

    The murderer Sadam Hussein would not allow this conduct in public
    as bad as he was. The war in Iraq deposes one monster for multiple
    fiends who will make life a living hell for everyone they touch in Iraq
    a place that goes from bad to worse. A slave society built on much
    American blood and suffering ala the idiots in Washington who have
    Barak Sadam Hussein Obama to insure American blood is wasted.

    They are savages! We should never have allowed them to come here. We should make them all leave!

    The wars of the Jews don’t carry over to the Church Age of the Christians. The new testament and the teachings of Jesus promote Love not Killing of everyone that does not believe the way you do. To this day and in the future, Islam will continue teaching killing anyone not of islam. Islam always has and always will.
