Islamic states belonging to the United Nations Human Rights Council have rejected a resolution on the elimination of all forms of violence against women because violence against women is part of the very essence of Islam and the resolution was seen as un-Islamic. The rejection was a foregone conclusion. After all, under Islam women are nothing more than chattels that can be used, abused and discarded at will and violence against them is enshrined in Islamic law and practice and has been endemic among believers from Islams beginning.
To quote from an earlier piece I wrote on this site…
Misogyny and maltreatment of women are fundamental precepts and defining characteristics of Islam. Under Islam women are treated as chattels, marginalized, dehumanized, objectified, mistreated, beaten, raped, disfigured, persecuted, dominated and killed as a matter of course. This is all perfectly legitimate and is sanctified by Allah’s revelations, the Koran, Muhammad’s behavior and Islamic law. It is endemic in Islamic societies now and has been since Islam first came into existence. Women have no legal rights under Islam at all, including the most basic ones of all, the right to life and the right to personal safety and security. Among other things, Islam teaches that a woman is worth less than a man, women are required to cover themselves, women are not allowed to be alone with a man who is not a relative, husbands are allowed to beat their wives, the testimony of a woman in court is worth half of a man’s, women cannot travel by themselves, adulterers are to be put to death, a woman must have four male witnesses to prove rape and her testimony is not accepted and on and on in the same vein. In Islam women are under the charge of men and completely subservient to them, be they husbands, fathers, sons, relatives or others.
Equality of the sexes? It doesn’t exist in Islam and never has.
All of this applies to women in general too, not just Muslim women or women who have converted or been forced to convert to Islam.
Which of course accounts for the rise in violence against women in Western countries with large and growing immigrant populations from Islamic countries, Britain, France, Germany, Australia, the Scandinavian countries, Canada and the United States among them. Islamists believe they can do anything they want to with women and often do because Islam tells them they can.
That about covers it.
Rejecting the UNHRC resolution was not surprising at all, not to anyone who knows what Islam is really all about and how it manifests itself in the world anyway.
Western women who think Islam is benign and harmless towards women, who excuse or ignore the treatment of women in the Islamic world, or who think they would be treated differently than their sisters in the Islamic world if they lived in it, are sadly mistaken.
It isn’t, there is no excuse and they wouldn’t be.
