Lessons for the West: Imprisoned for One’s Faith

Women in the West are increasingly being targeted by jihadists for persecution and murder, noted the British historian Gavin Mortimer in a recent piece in the Spectator. The radical Islamists are doing this, Mortimer said, “because in their minds [females] represent empowerment and enlightenment, and also immodesty.”

Women in Muslim-majority countries are all too familiar with this attitude. Subjected to the dictates of the strictest interpretation of Islam at the hands of their patriarchal societies, they live as second-class citizens across the Middle East. Those who dare to go against the grain in any fashion — even by belonging to another religion — meet cruel fates.

    He is obviously a Nazi, and maybe even a Russian as well. Meanwhile little Justin is denouncing the persecution of muslims in Burma, and muslims from that country are already arriving in Canada, according to the Globe and Smell. Praise Allah!!

      So after invading Burma and discovering that those Buddhists are not willing to submit to them like the West, those Muslims will be coming to Canada.

    I can already hear the dumba$$ Leftists screaming Racist and blowing whistles if engaged about this article. Much as I dont wish the Evil on us it would be hilarious to see the Leftists get a taste of Shariah.

      They will submit in Muslim countries because obedience is cool.
