Women on the march to Islamism

The Islamic State has cleverly constructed its propaganda to tempt educated, physically attractive women. It understands that the blonde and blue-eyed female bombers will gain the most foreign publicity and television coverage. But how to subert the lure of fanaticism for women jihadis themselves?

Women if in relatively small numbers, have become as radicalized and militant as males of their own age on behalf of Islamic terrorist organizations. According to recent studies by British research groups, gender is largely irrelevant in the likelihood of people becoming extremists.

Young Muslim women are as likely as men, and may even be more likely, to have sympathies with terrorist activity.

These women, as well as men, living in democratic Western countries have left their homes to join and assist the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (IS). Of the estimated 20,000 foreigners who have joined IS, 3,400 came from the West, including 150 from the U.S.

    From running off to join terrorists to muslim women fighting nonstop in Canada and other Western countries for segregation of the sexes. Why are we going backwards or reversing the equality western women have fought to obtain over the last 100 years or so.

    These mooslims are such cowards. Men and Women both. Hiding behind head bags and head rags. If you have something to say lets see your faces and then we can decide just how much sincerity you can show.

    The Western young Muslim women joining IS are rejecting modern Western
    society. The democratic secular nations must find messages to counteract
    the effectiveness of IS propaganda.

    Excuse me? I can understand these women. They have been educated in Western schools,and are listening to Western media. And what Western (and Canadian) schools teach students? What Western media are saying about Western culture?
    Both media and schools are saying that

    “White people are racists”
    Familly is a thing of the past”
    “Black and brown people are discriminated against”
    “Western women have to fight for equality, they are discriminated against”
    ” Western culture is imperialist”
    “Christian history is full of blood and murder, just look at Crusades”
    “White people in Canada are responsible for murder of natives and they should pay for that” ..
    .and so on and so forth.

    And add to that things muslim preachers are saying

    “Westerners are racists and islamophobes”
    ” Muslims are discriminated against”
    “Western culture is imperialist”
    ” islam is good, Western culture is bad”
    ” IS fight for a real culture”
    “Women are discriminated in Western culture but not in Islam”
    “islam is for familly life”

    And they are saying that “democratic nations have to find a messages to counteract IS propaganda”?

    It is simple “don’t teach and say things similar to what IS and Islamists are saying,”

  • Islam is just numbers gone bad.

    Take a large group of non-religious people. Add in Islamic scripture. And you will get a few who believe. And you will also get a few willing to follow Islamic calls to violence.

    Those willing to commit Islamic violence will “convince” others to “believe”.

    Soon you hit critical mass. A society controlled by unseen religious thugs.

    Here is the beginning.

    Would you wear a T-shirt with a Mohammad cartoon printed on it?

    You might in Montana. Don’t try it in Mecca.


    Because, Islam trains a small number of its most devout believers it’s OK to kill. And Islamic killers have been trained to kill anyone who insults Allah and/or Mohammad.

    In Montana you’d have a good chance none of these Islamic killers would see you.

    In Mecca you wouldn’t last five minutes. One of Islam’s killers would come from out of nowhere and kill you. It is that simple.

    You don’t believe me? Ask any Muslim!
