Islamic Cultural Jihad has defeated our culture of equality in Mount Roskill

 

In Mount Roskill,?Islamic cultural jihad has been successful. A public swimming pool has been convinced to provide segregated and secure swimming facilities for Muslim women. When you look at this development through politically correct tinted glasses it seems no big deal but when you look into it more closely…

Respect for Palestinian female terrorists but not Palestinian female politicians

Palestinian women get respect and recognition for committing brutal terrorist acts but what they don’t get respect for is being involved in local politics. ?Male political ?candidates are ?listed with their name and photo ?but female candidates are referred to using the terms “the wife of” or “sister.”

 

…In a move that has outraged Palestinian women and various Palestinian factions, a number of Palestinian lists contesting the upcoming local elections, scheduled to take place on October 8, have decided to omit the names and photos of female candidates.

Instead of referring to the female candidates by name and publishing their pictures, the electoral lists are using the terms “the wife of” or “sister.”

Critics have denounced the move as a “sign of retardation, extremism and bigotry.

…The decision to conceal the names and photos of female candidates is seen in the context of the increased “Islamization” of Palestinian society, which is already considered highly conservative.

Apart from being a severe blow to the struggle of Palestinian women for equality, the move is in violation of the 2005 Palestinian Local Election Law, which stipulates that candidates must be fully identified by name, age, address and registration number in the electoral list.

This anti-woman undertaking is not taking place only in the Gaza Strip, under the control of the Islamist Hamas movement. It is also baring its fangs in some parts of the West Bank, which is ruled by the Western-funded Palestinian Authority (PA), headed by Mahmoud Abbas.

It is the beginning of the end for French Women’s freedom

The Burkini ban is over before it could even start.The French have already surrendered to Sharia law. Once again the democratic laws of equality and freedom of religion have been twisted and used by the followers of anti-democratic and anti-women Sharia law to their advantage. Within a decade it will be a lone French woman bravely wearing a bikini on a French beach. She will stand out, surrounded by burkini clad non-Muslim?and Muslim women alike. She will feel the pressure to conform and hostile Muslim male eyes will be upon her. “Slut” they will call out, ” Prostitute!” “She is asking to be raped,” they will say amongst themselves, ” she is being provocative,” they will whisper and the lone French woman will feel the fear and wonder when it all went so horribly wrong for France.

False equivalency used to defend oppressive swimwear

screen-shot-2016-08-24-at-10-35-56-am

Juxtaposed photos go viral after police seen ordering woman to remove burqini on French beach WITW STAFF08.24.16 (Twitter)

False equivalency is once again being used by idiots on Twitter who must all be sharing their one remaining brain cell. ?When we look at these two photos what do we see?

  1. A ?man in authority enforcing the law.
  2. A woman ?in a bathing suit having the law enforced on her.

In these two ways, both photos are equivalent but it is the law that is being enforced that is the key difference here and one that the idiots on Twitter are deliberately failing to recognise.

CAIR attempts to “Mansplain” Muslim modesty

index

 

CAIR are an extremely well funded organisation that wages legal Jihad to impose Sharia law and values on Western countries. After every Islamic terrorist attack you can count on one of their representatives to be front and centre, expressing concern that the massacre of infidels may lead to the average Muslim on the street being subjected to mean stares.

After we published the above photo on Whaleoil I went looking for photos of modest Muslim men with the intention of ?pixelating??parts of their body that would have to be covered if they were Muslim women in Iran. ?Instead I found this article by CAIR ?entitled, UNDERSTANDING MODESTY ? A LOOK AT MUSLIM MEN. In it the writer does his best to mansplain?a mentality that subjugates women and is insulting to men, viewing them as primitive animals with no self control.

Academic cowardice from University previously known for academic freedom

The University of Cape Town was once known known for academic freedom. In fact it had a tradition of having a lecture every year on that specific topic.This year it invited former publisher Flemming Rose to give the lecture on academic freedom. He was an excellent choice as he is the former editor of Jyllands-Posten, which published the Danish cartoons?in an attempt to contribute to the debate about criticism of Islam and self-censorship.

The below article was written by a previous ?invitee of the University of Cape Town ?in response to the decision of the University to ?disinvite? Flemming Rose from giving this year?s TB Davie Lecture on Academic Freedom.

What has happened is part of a disturbing trend. Western Universities ?say they believe in equal rights then allow lectures to be segregated by sex to accommodate Muslim lecturers and Muslim students. They allow radical extremist Muslim speakers ?on campus but ban critics of Islam. ?They stand up for freedom of speech except when it might offend Muslims. Is it because of fear or is it submission? Whatever it is, it needs to stop.


Last year, I was honoured to be invited to the University of Cape Town to give the 2015 TB Davie lecture. It was a privilege to have been able to become part of the history that is the TB Davie lecture, a history of resistance to apartheid and to censorship, a history of refusing to think as one has been told to think but, rather, of challenging people to open their minds, a history of continually rethinking the meanings of freedom, and of academic freedom. It was a privilege, too, to be able to sign my name in a speakers? book in which other signatories include such great figures as Walter Sisulu, Wole Soyinke, Orlando Patterson, Juliet Mitchell, Edward Said and Noam Chomsky.

Even though I spent but a short time at UCT, I came to have great affection for the university, and its students and staff. It comes as a shock, therefore, to discover that the UCT has decided to disinvite Flemming Rose who was to be this year?s TB Davie lecturer.

“Feminist Hero” murdered by her brothers in Pakistan

A belief system that calls the murder of an unarmed woman an “honour killing” is a belief system that has no honour. ?A legal system that allows murderers to escape justice if a family member forgives them, also has no honour. The latest woman murdered in the Islamic country of Pakistan described herself as a modern-day feminist.

“As women we must stand up for ourselves. As women, we must stand up for each other,” she told her 758,000 followers on Facebook, days before her death.

There is clearly no place for feminism in a society with a misogynistic legal system and misogynistic beliefs. Fauzia Azeem, like many Muslim women before her, has learned this the hard way – sadly. I wonder when Western feminists will finally get it? Islam is incompatible with feminism. The Muslim women in the West who claim to be feminists while wearing their hijabs, only have the freedom to say those things because they live in the relative safety of the West. It isn’t Islam that gives them feminist freedom, it is Western civilization.

Brave Gay people in China pledge to not enter into sham marriages with straight people

When you live in a conservative country like China it must take real bravery to come out of the closet. The gay people who have taken part in a social media campaign #I’m gay and won’t marry a straight person# have taken this bravery one step further. It is their hope that it will ?gain them support for marriage equality. It is a powerful way of making a very good point. If you won’t accept gay people and expect them to stay in the closet, you are responsible for dooming not only them but other innocent straight men and women to miserable sham marriages.

…Since last week, a number of users on popular microblogging network Sina Weibo have been posting selfies of themselves with the hashtag #I’m gay and won’t marry a straight person#.

Several parents of LGBT people have also posted pictures of themselves with signs declaring they would not pressure their children into marriage.

A letter from an Arab to a Jew that you must read

The people who help change the world are often the last people we would expect. They are the ones who have views that run counter to the views of people from their own ‘culture’. They are people who look beyond what they have been taught by others and who see reasons for doing things differently. This open letter from Arab Fred Maroun to Jews who support BDS is a great example of this. Both he and the Jews he is writing too are examples of people who run a counter current to their own communities. Both have the potential to create change. I will let you decide which side has the most harmful ?beliefs and aims.

Fred-Maroun-medium

Fred Maroun

Fred Maroun is a Canadian of Arab origin who lived in Lebanon until 1984, including during 10 years of civil war. Fred supports Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, and he supports a liberal and democratic Middle East where all religions and nationalities, including Palestinians, can co-exist in peace with each other and with Israel, and where human rights are respected. Fred is an atheist, a social liberal, and an advocate of equal rights for LGBT people everywhere

You are Jewish, probably young and probably American, but you may be European or even Israeli, and you may not be so young any more. You have embraced the Arab battle against Zionism and you support the BDS movement, which as I demonstrated previously, aims for a single binational state in place of Israel and the Palestinian territories, and aims for the ?return? of millions of Palestinian refugees who would make Israel overnight an Arab state.
Your position interests me because I am the same as you and yet I am your opposite. I am the same as you in that I am in the countercurrent of my own community, but I am the opposite of you in my ethnicity and in my allegiances in the Israel-Arab conflict. I am an Arab who supports Jewish nationalism.

Would you support a Prime Minister who is a devout Muslim?

A devout Muslim is a practising Muslim who believes that Mohammad is the perfect man whose actions should be emulated and that Islamic law, the Sharia is Allah’s law and is therefore perfect. The devout Muslim does not support democracy or equal rights as to do so would be against his religion.

Presidential candidate Benjamin Carson.” A Muslim shouldn?t be elected president,? by Hope Yen, Associated Press, September 20, 2015: Photo REUTERS

In America, Presidential candidate Ben Carson has made the statement that” A Muslim shouldn’t be President” and it has brought out all the haters. I think a better statement to make would be to pose the following question: Why would a devout Muslim want to head a democracy that is the antithesis of Islamic law? That would be like a Vegetarian wanting to become the head of the Meat workers Union. It doesn’t make sense unless there is a hidden agenda.
