Everyone should have heard by now about the Saudi woman who was gang-raped and then sentenced by a Saudi court to 200 lashes and one year in prison for being in the company of a man who was not related to her.
Or the British school teacher who could have been sentenced to 40 lashes and one year in prison for allowing Muslim students to name a teddy bear Muhammad. Her crime; insulting the religion of Islam. She is currently in a Khartuom, Sudan jail, awaiting a decision on her punishment.
For those who haven’t studied Islam and depend on the politically correct ( like George Bush) to tell you that Islam is a peaceful religion, try doing a little research and get the truth. Islam is a brutal, uncompromising religion that governs every part of your life. And those Muslims living under sharia (Islamic law), especially women, are restricted to certain behaviors which are enforced by their religious leaders through the religious police (Saudi Arabia, Sudan).
Some Muslim countries have BLASPHEMY LAWS which carry severe penalties for the offender. For example, in Pakistan, Blasphemy Law 295-C:
“Use of derogatory remarks, etc. in respect of the Holy Prophet. Whoever by words, either spoken or written or by visible representation, or by any imputation, innuendo, or insinuatio, directly or indirectly, defiles the sacred name of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) shall be punished with DEATH, OR IMPRISONMENT FOR LIFE, and shall also be liable to a fine.”
Muslim women aren’t held in high esteem in the Quran, the Muslim Holy Book. The Quran, considered to contain the words of Allah transmitted to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel, is taken literally by the faithful. Fortunately, only the core true believers (a significant number), as in any organization, will carry out the insane rules handed down from a cruel GOD. The bad news is there are more than 1.3 billion Muslims in the world and the number is growing.
“The words and deeds of Muhammad, written down in the official Hadiths, plus ‘Allah’s’ declarations in the Quran on the ‘rights’ of women, continue to have a destructive effect on Muslim females throughout the world.”
One entry in a hadith reports that Muhammad said, “…the majority of people in Hell are women.”
This chapter (Sura 4:34) from the Quran has this to say about women: “Good women ARE OBEDIENT…As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to bed apart AND BEAT THEM.”
“The proper way to beat a woman is still a matter of concern in the Muslim world. Spain’s Muslim imam, Mohammad Kamal Mustafa, published a book in the year 2000 which included advice to men on the correct way to beat their wives.”
A husband should strike “only the hands and feet, using a rod that is thin and light so that it does not leave behind scars or bruises on the body.”
The objective “…should be to cause psychological suffering and not to humiliate or physically abuse his wife.” (It’s because Muslim men care.)
Muhammad set the standard of behavior for Muslim men, who seek to emulate the life of this “perfect example.” He established the age at which a “woman ” could marry as nine. Although he married his favorite wife Aisha when she was six, he did the proper thing and waited until she was nine to consumate it.

Muhammad is the model for today’s Islamic terrorism, including assassination of those who criticise Islam or the prophet himself. And the Quran is filled with exhortations to commit violent acts against the Unbelievers and non Muslims. For examples of Muhammad’s crimes against humanity and the continuation of that legacy today, click on the link, Blasphemy Law 295C, above.
To learn about sharia (Islamic law) read the story of Amina Lawal, a Nigerian woman who was found guilty of adultery and sentenced to be executed. As soon as she had weaned her baby, Wasila, Amina would “be buried in the ground up to her chest and stoned to death.” To find out how the story ends, visit this link.

Islam is spreading. In Europe, Muslims are 20 million stong and their numbers are increasing. And many want sharia. An ICM opinion poll shows that 40% of “…British Muslims want sharia law introduced into parts of the country…” [Telegraph.co.uk 02/19/2006]
And Muslims in Canada have decided that they need to have a form of sharia for their community.
In America, Omar M. Ahmad, founder of CAIR, Council on American-Islamic Relations, stated the END GAME clearly:
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to dominate. The Koran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.” [San Ramon Valley Herald, July 4, 1988]
