Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Unfree Under Islam

Posted in

Roger L. Simon bezeichnet Ayaan Hirsi Ali heute als moderne Jeanne d'Arc und meint, die Rechte der Frauen seien das tatsächliche Zentrum des War on Terror. Seiner Ansicht nach ist Islamofaschismus mehr als alles andere ein Ausdruck des Rage against Women und der Islam selber seie in dieser Angelegenheit nicht viel besser. Er weist auf einen Artikel von Ayaan Hirsi Ali im Wall Street Journal von gestern hin:

Unfree Under Islam
Shariah endangers women's rights, from Iraq to Canada.

BY AYAAN HIRSI ALI
Tuesday, August 16, 2005 12:01 a.m.

In every society where family affairs are regulated according to instructions derived from the Shariah or Islamic law, women are disadvantaged. The injustices these women are exposed to in the name of Islam vary from extreme cruelty (forced marriages; imprisonment or death after rape) to grossly unfair treatment in matters of marriage, divorce and inheritance.

Muslim women across the world are caught in a terrible predicament. They aspire to live by their faith as best they can, but their faith robs them of their rights. Some women have found a way out of this dilemma in the principle of separation of organized religion and state affairs. They fight an uphill battle to achieve and hold on to their basic rights. Two cases demonstrate just how difficult that struggle can be, in the context of new as well as established democracies.

Female circumcision surfaces in Iraq

Female circumcision surfaces in Iraq
A German aid group finds the first solid proof of the practice, thought to be prevalent in the Middle East.

By Nicholas Birch | Contributor to The Christian Science Monitor

KIRKUK, IRAQ - Set on an arid plain southeast of Kirkuk, Hasira looks like a place forsaken by time. Sheep amble past mud-brick houses and the odd sickly palm tree shades children's games. There is no electricity.

Yet along with 39 other villages in this region that Iraq's Kurds have named Germian (meaning hot place), Hasira and its people have become noted for presenting the first statistical evidence in Iraq of the existence of female circumcision, or female genital mutilation (FGM), as critics call it.

Wikipedia meint unter [w:pollywog]:

A POLLYWOG is

  • in zoology, a Tadpole (amphibious offspring, not yet in adult form)
  • the literally belittling term for a (military or commercial) sailor subjected to a traditional, hazing-like ritual initiation when first crossing the equator

Wikipedia meint unter [w:tadpole]:

A tadpole (also known as a pollywog) is a larval frog, toad, salamander, or newt. In this stage it breathes by means of external or internal gills, is at first lacking legs, and has a finlike tail. As a tadpole matures, it metamorphoses by gradually growing limbs and then (in the case of frogs and toads) absorbing its tail. Most tadpoles are herbivorous, subsisting on algae. In a few species, some tadpoles turn cannibalistic under harsh conditions and feed on other tadpoles living in the pond.

Wenn der Ploppa plappern darf

Posted in

In der aktuellen Ausgabe des marburger Magazin Express darf Hermann Plopper, [image:23 align=right border=1 nolink=1 hspace=5 vspace=5 size=thumbnail] auch bekannt als Dauerplapperer im "Unerhört" - ein Marburger Rasdiosender ohne Kommerz, dafür für Volkes Stimme - eine ganze Seite lang über die armen unterdrückten islamischen Völker daherschwadronieren und sich als Verleugner der Shoa outen.

Der Artikel "Schachbrett Mittlerer Osten" kündigt ein"heftiges" Buch von Martin Baraki an, was unter "heftig" zu verstehen ist, ahnt man, wenn man sich diese Seite lauter Lügen, Verharmlosungen und antisemitischer Projektionen vergegenwertigt hat: Bei Ploppa existieren lauter Völker - sie sind seine Schachfiguren, die von bösen Strippenziehern im Westen - allen voran natürlich in den USA - gezogen werden. Das alte antiimperialistische Weltbild von den Guten Völker, die in ihrer Kultur, in ihrer Eigenartigkeit von mächtigen westlichen Nationen beraubt und unterdrückt werden, wäre eigentlich langweilig und keine Zeile wert, wenn der Express hier nicht sich des Einverständnisses seiner Leser so sicher sein könnte.
