Women, Islam’s main victims

Islam is a violent, imperialistic and totalitarian ideology with a religious halo. Islamic doctrine is elaborated in the Quran and the Hadith, and is specified and determined by the Sharia. The Sharia is a complex of rules Islam imposes on both Muslims and non-Muslims: an inhumane and anti-Western justice system, characterized by barbarous prescriptions which conflict with the generally accepted tenets of European civilization. The Sharia is totally at odds with Western freedom, does not tolerate dissidence, calls for Jihad (war in the name of Allah against non-Muslims), provides for abhorrent corporal punishment and officializes the inequality between men and women.

The Sharia is a fundamental part of Islam. That’s what we can conclude from the “Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam” which was signed by more than 50 Muslim countries in the 1990s. It says: “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shari’ah.” (Article 24). And: “The Islamic Shari’ah is the only source of reference for the explanation or clarification of any of the articles of this Declaration.” (Article 25). One cannot find a better proof of the so-called “clash of civilizations”.

Worldwide, Islam harms both Muslims and non-Muslims, but undoubtedly, women are always hardest hit. Islamic doctrine is fundamentally misogynic, since it does not only license violence against females, it even insists on it. In a Muslim’s view, women are inferior beings that need to be discriminated against in every field of society. Forced marriage (even involving young girls), polygamy, confinement and total isolation from the outside world, as well as other outrages such as honour related violence, forced sex and genital mutilation: these are the kind of things a great deal of Islamic women need to cope with. 1400 years of Muhammadan theory and practice have shown that such cruelties indeed are a logical consequence of Islamic doctrine. The pre-eminent symbol of the subordinate position of women is the obligatory body covering such as the head scarf, niqab and burqa.

As a consequence of the mass-immigration of Muslims, our free non-Islamic society got and still gets injected with Islamic culture. More and more non-Muslims, especially women, realize that our culture is getting Islamized and that our freedoms are seriously being threatened. Western women are more often confronted now with Muslim men claiming they are not dressed “decently”, that is to say: not according to Islamic rules. The reportage of the Flemish student Sophie Peeters “Femme de la rue” clearly demonstrates that it weren’t Buddhists, Christians or Jews who harassed her, but Muslims.

Equal rights for women are part of the core of our society. That’s why we strongly resist the Islamization of our culture. The purpose of this brochure is to expose the implications Islamization has for all the women who prefer freedom and the liberty to dress as they want.
