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.

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.
