SHARIA LAW FOR WOMEN: A Review of Joys of Muslim Women by Nonie Darwish
Nonie Darwish is a woman born in Egypt as a Muslim. The following is a paraphrased description of her latest book, Joys of Muslim Women, in which she offers descriptions of her long experience inside of Islam:
(As terrorism from Islamic Fundamentalists and war with Islamic Fundamentalists is very much a part of our current economic equation, I am reprinting this review here. While her experience of Islam and her choice to leave Islam may not be a well-rounded picture of Islam, she certainly has more insider knowledge, as the daughter of Muslim martyr for jihad in Gaza, than I do. She was taught to hate Jews and encouraged to kill them, but, instead, came to love them.)
Sharia Law as it relates to women
In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and can have sexual intimacy with this child, consummating the marriage by 9.
A dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.
Even though a woman is abused she cannot obtain a divorce.
To prove rape, the woman must have (4) male witnesses.
Often, after a woman has been raped, she is returned to her family and the family must return the dowry. The family has the right to execute her (an honor killing) to restore the honor of the family. Husbands can beat their wives ‘at will’ and he does not have to say why he has beaten her.
The husband is permitted to have (4 wives) and a temporary wife for an hour (prostitute) at his discretion.
The Sharia Muslim law controls the private as well as the public life of a woman.
In the Western World ( Canada, Australia, United States and Britain ) Muslim men are starting to demand Sharia Law so the wife cannot obtain a divorce and he can have full and complete control of her. It is amazing and alarming how many of our sisters and daughters attending American, Canadian, Universities and British Universities are now marrying Muslim men and submitting themselves and their children unsuspectingly to the Sharia law.
Radical Islam seeks to impose Sharia law within Western nations
Author and lecturer Nonie Darwish says the goal of radical Islamists is to impose Sharia law on the world, ripping Western law and liberty in two.
Darwish recently authored the book [amazon_link id=”B002ZNJW04″ target=”_blank” ]Cruel and Usual Punishment: The Terrifying Global Implications of Islamic Law[/amazon_link]. She was born in Cairo and spent her childhood in Egypt and Gaza before emmigrating to America in 1978, when she was eight years old. Her father died while leading covert attacks on Israel. He was a high-ranking Egyptian military officer stationed with his family in Gaza.
When he died, he was considered a “shahid,” a martyr for jihad. His posthumous status earned Nonie and her family an elevated buy ambien fast position in Muslim society. Egypt’s present Nassar encouraged her and other children of the martyrs to kill Jews in revenge of her father’s martyrdom as he bestowed honor upon the families of the martyrs.
But Darwish developed a skeptical eye at an early age. She questioned her own Muslim culture and upbringing. She converted to Christianity after hearing a Christian preacher on television.
In her latest book, Darwish warns about creeping sharia law – what it is, what it means, and how it is manifested in Islamic countries.
For the West, she says radical Islamists are working to impose sharia law on the world. Westerners generally assume all religions encourage a respect for the dignity of each individual. She presents an experience of Islamic law (Sharia) that teaches that non-Muslims should be subjugated or killed.
Peace and prosperity for one’s children is not as important as assuring that Islamic law rules everywhere in the Middle East and eventually in the world.
While Westerners tend to think that all religions encourage some form of the golden rule, Sharia teaches two systems of ethics – one for Muslims and another for non-Muslims. Building on tribal practices of the seventh century, Sharia encourages the side of humanity that wants to take from and subjugate others..
While Westerners tend to think in terms of religious people developing a personal understanding of God through exploration and discovery, Sharia advocates executing people who ask difficult questions that could be interpreted as criticism of Islam or of its prophet, Muhammed.
It’s hard to imagine, that in this day and age, Islamic scholars agree that those who criticize Islam or choose to stop being Muslim should be executed. Sadly, while talk of an Islamic reformation is common and even assumed by many in the West, such murmurings in the Middle East are silenced through intimidation.
While Westerners are accustomed to an increase in religious tolerance over time, Darwish explains how petro dollars are being used to grow an extremely intolerant form of political Islam in her native Egypt and elsewhere.
(In twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in Canada, Australia, the U.S. to elect the heads of government by themselves! Islamic Fundamentalists do not migrate to these countries because they love the culture. They migrate there to spread Islam and change those countries. There are already enough Muslims in Britain to elect the heads of government by themselves, and they have done so. Britain has several cities now totally controlled by Muslim councils that have imposed Sharia law on those cities. You can look at how they are taking over several towns in the USA as well. Dearborn, Michigan, is one where Sharia is being pushed.)
