The Independent: How the teachings of Islam could help us prevent more sexual abuse scandals

On the plus side, she’s probably not being masturbated at by Harvey Weinstein.

Via. Saith lying Ahmadi Qasim Rashid:

If the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse revelations shocked you, then you’re dangerously ignorant to (sic) reality. According to RAINN, an American is assaulted every 98 seconds, one out of every six women will deal with rape or attempted rape in her lifetime, and 90 per cent of rape victims are women.

I’m a Muslim, and a civil rights lawyer with a special interest in advocating for women’s rights. My advocacy is informed not just by the law, but by strategies detailed in Islamic teachings and Prophet Muhammad’s example to pre-empt sexual abuse. Yes, the cancer of sexual abuse against women that we see in Christian majority America is just as prevalent in Muslim majority Pakistan, (not enough islam in Pakistan, I guess – Ed.), but also in Hindu majority India and state atheist China. This proves that men worldwide are failing in our responsibility to end sexual abuse and gender based violence.

…Yes, Islam implores accountability to the creator, but rather than preach empty dogmatic theories, Islam instead prescribes a proven secular model.

In a recent internationally broadcast lecture given live before roughly 6,000 Muslim women, the Khalifa of Islam said, “Chapter four, verse two of the Holy Quran…clarifies that women were not created out of the body of a man or from his rib. Rather, the Quran testifies to the fact that men and women were created from a single soul and are of the same kind and species.”

Thus, the Quran 4:2 first establishes men and women as equal beings. Chapter 4:20 then forbids men from forcing a woman to act against her will, thereby ensuring women maintain autonomy and self-determination.

…Together, we can employ a proven Islamic model that will stop this madness, and re-invoke gender equity today in America, and the world.

Islamist Leader Claims That Muslims Are the New Jews

The audacity!

On Sunday, an Islamist leader in Australia compared the plight of Muslims in the West today to that of Jews in Germany leading up to the Holocaust. He suggested that Muslims face the same fear and hatred that led Adolf Hitler to try to exterminate the Jews, and warned that a similar evil might be employed against Muslims in the near future.

Islamic Relief Canada’s Pitch

For the last decade, I have been researching the harmful effects of cultural practices on women and girls in Muslim-majority countries and the role that faith communities can play in ending these practices. I recently authored a report on female genital mutilation in Indonesia and made recommendations to Islamic Relief Canada and to the Canadian government on how this practice can end.

This work of challenging harmful societal norms is at the heart of Islamic Relief Canada’s mission. This year we mark our 10th anniversary in Canada.  

As a Muslim woman mobilizing for change, we often face obstacles from all communities when dealing with these issues.

Our organization is at the forefront of campaigning for an end to global and local poverty. We work with the most disadvantaged communities, responding to natural disasters and other emergencies and striving to end harmful practices, such as child labour, forced marriages and gender-based violence — all of which perpetuate a cycle of poverty.

We’ve done some incredible work in the last ten years helping millions of individuals around the world — including in Canada — regardless of their religion, race, gender or sexuality. We’ve been amazed at the generosity of Canadians — those who are Muslim and those of different faith backgrounds who support our work and are strong advocates for the efforts we undertake. For instance, we raised over $100,000 for the victims of the Fort McMurray wildfire, supported Syrian refugee resettlement programs, worked at empowering disadvantaged youth in the Greater Toronto Area, and launched an appeal for the Quebec mosque attack victims that raised thousands of dollars for the families left without their fathers.

This track record stands in stark contrast to the false image painted of Islamic Relief Canada in a one-sided and unsubstantiated article that was published recently in the National Post.

Sam Westrop, writing on behalf of the Middle East Forum (MEF), labelled Islamic Relief Canada a “terrorist organization which regularly gives platforms to preachers who incite hatred against women, Jews, homosexuals and Muslim minorities.” This defamatory statement was removed after our organization contacted the newspaper, along with community members who were justifiably angered by this casual smear of a reputable and valuable charity. The revised article is now online, but for me, it still represents the dictionary definition of fake news: “false, often sensational, information disseminated under the guise of news reporting.”

 

Yes, about that:

In Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police investigation (Project Sapphire) into the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy (IRFAN) continues. IRFAN was one of four Muslim Brotherhood front groups identified during testimony to the Canadian Senate in 2015. The others were Islamic Relief Canada, the Muslim Association of Canada and the National Council of Canadian Muslims, formerly known as CAIR CAN. CAIR CAN, according to the U.S. State Department and a multiplicity of other sources, is the Canadian chapter of CAIR USA.

Sam Westrop’s article:

Our organization, the Middle East Forum, is calling on Trevor Noah, host of The Daily Show, to withdraw from an Islamic Relief Canada event aimed at promoting Muslim solidarity, which is scheduled to take place in Toronto on May 20. …

While Islamic Relief is considered to be one of Canada’s leading Muslim non-governmental organizations, its head organization—Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW)—was banned by Israel and the United Arab Emirates in 2014 for its alleged financing of terrorist organizations. (That same year, IRW reported that an audit of the charity found no evidence to support these allegations, and launched a court action against the Israeli government to overturn the ban.)

White Liberals Attack Brown Islamic Dissidents

The Southern Poverty Law Center has attacked principled and courageous critics of radical Islamism such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali (left), a prominent ex-Muslim writer, and Maajid Nawaz (right), a moderate practising Muslim writer, radio host and politician

Nick Cohen, in The Spectator, explained:

“In the liberal orientalist world view the only ‘authentic’ Muslim is a barbarian. A battery of insults fires on any Muslim who says otherwise. They are ‘neo-conservatives,’ ‘native informants,’ and ‘Zionists’: they are as extreme as jihadists they oppose, or, let’s face it, worse…”

In short, according with Cohen, “a section of the Western left has adopted the ideology of the Salafists, Khomeinists and Islamists. It supports their blasphemy codes, and apologias for murder”.

Day of confrontation feared at Toronto’s City Hall

Opposing protests are planned on Sunday, March 19, 2017 at 12 pm at Nathan Philip Square. Canadian Coalition of Concerned Citizens (CCCC) will rally in support of free speech and against Motion 103, also known as the anti-Islamophobia motion, while the Facebook group “Toronto social for Muslim Women – Events & Meets” calls on “intersectional, anti-racist and anti-fascist groups and individuals” to join a counter protest accusing CCCC of terrorism.

Germany Downplayed Threat of Jihadists Posing as Migrants

German political leaders and national security officials knew that Islamic State jihadists were entering Europe disguised as migrants but repeatedly downplayed the threat, apparently to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments, according to an exposé by German public television.

Germany needs a purge, and I’m not talking about Muslims.

Berlin massacre terror suspect Anis Amri arrested three times this year

Terror suspect Anis Amri has been under the surveillance of German intelligence practically since his arrival in the country last year – and was even arrested THREE TIMES this year.

But despite being an Isis supporter and known to have received weapons training, German authorities seem to have allowed him to slip through their clutches time after time.

Do Islam and the West Share the ‘Same Values’?

sadiq-khan

Recently while touring the U.S. and Canada, London’s first Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, “attacked anti-Muslim views and policies and argued that what is needed is to build ‘bridges rather than walls’—a reference to Mr. Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the US-Mexico border.”

He specifically and repeatedly criticized the notion “that it is not possible to hold Western values and to be a Muslim.”  This notion, which he attributed to Trump, plays “into the hands of Daesh and so-called ISIS because it implies it’s not possible to be a Western liberal and mainstream Muslim, said Khan”

Can Muslims hold to Western liberal values and still be true to mainstream Islam?

Bulgaria bans the burqa

burqa

The new law states that clothing that conceals the face may not be worn in the institutions of Bulgaria’s central and local administrations, schools, cultural institutions, and places of public recreation, sports and communications.

Perhaps controversially the ban will also apply to houses of worship which could cause a backlash from Bulgaria’s 580,000 Muslim minority who make up around 8% of the population, as of a 2011 national census.

Australia’s Muslim migrants on edge, race relations falter with rise of the right

Race relations in Australia have deteriorated so badly that some community leaders fear violence will erupt in a political vacuum where the new government, elected with a bare majority, must rely on the support of parties that have fomented the discord.
