Woman Honor Thyself

When women are depressed, they either eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. --Elaine Boosler

SilencE is GoldeN...or is It?


Mus-lim Woman Sparks Debate With 'Apartheid' Remarks

"Malaysia is considered one of the most moderate nations in the Mus-lim world, but the daughter of a former prime minister has sparked a row by comparing discrimination against Mus-lim women in her country with the treatment of black South Africans under apartheid.

As non-Mus-lim women catch up with women in the rest of the world, Mus-lim women here are only going backwards," Marina Mahathir wrote in a newspaper column.

Mahathir, a women's rights and HIV/AIDS campaigner, was referring to new family laws that will make it easier for Muzlim men in Malaysia to take multiple wives and claim property after divorce.

Under Izlamic law (sha-ri'a), Malaysian Muzlim men already are allowed up to four wives. But the new legislation will give them more rights to claim assets after divorcing a wife, to seize property belonging to existing wives, and lessen their obligation to pay maintenance.

Organizations that came out against the proposals were attacked for promoting "western"-style gender equality, and parliament passed the legislation at the end of last year.

In multi-ethnic Malaysia, where Muzlims comprise about 60 percent of the population, the proposed new laws will only apply to Muzlims.

Mahathir wrote that, more than a decade after apartheid had ended in South Africa, an "insidious" form of discrimination was developing in Malaysia, between Muzlim and non-Muzlim women.
The article was due for publication last Wednesday, International Women's Day, but The Star newspaper - for which she has long been a regular columnist - held it because of the controversial content.

Mahathir then published it on the Internet, with a note saying: "For the first time in some 17 years, The Star is refusing to publish my column ... they said that the powers-that-be there think it's too tough on the government and it's not the right platform etc."
The column eventually was published on Friday."


Here we go again:
The ongoing struggle between two irreconcilable value systems, one based on the Enlightenment tradition, the other clinging to religious dogma which it freely imposes upon its citizens, particularly its female ones.
Not only are they political aggressive,-holding publication of the article, but to add insult to injury they are culturally arrogant about it.

Lest we forget, we are dealing with a religion which does not recognize any separation of politics and religion.
This has always been so and in case your'e wondering.. will always be. It is the very nature of the religion.

In their framework of government, Al-ah has all the power...not the "people", not the "courts", not a document written by forefathers. The Qu-r'an, is always taken literally. Those words are considered to be the actual words of their God and can therefore, never be altered. There will be no "amendments"...trust me.


And yet again they promote a restrictive theocratic view of human relations and world politics, trying to silence a remark by a Muzlim woman, because "the powers that be" deem: it sends a wrong message to the world."

And needless to say-THEY always know best. Don't they?

    It is always amazing, though not surprising, that Libs are so anti-men here, but when you have a society or group of people who practice Islam, then Libs fall all over themselves in an attempt not to criticize. In most Muslim countries the women are treated horribly, yet the Libs protest when we liberate them. What to do?

    You notice how there is absolutely no need for P.E.T.A. in the muuuussssslllllimmm world, i guess it has something to do with how well they treat their animals and not their women!!!!!

    Kudos on the post, Angel. Excellent work! :)

    Liberals do protest when we liberate Muslim women; they do that because they are asshats!

    Muslims are not going to change, that is a given. It is set in stone, as is their religion. They are fanatics, and if 9/ll doesn't prove it to "all" Americans, I'm afraid to think of what horrible disaster may have to happen here in order to open their blind eyes.

    The Koran is not the word of God. It is the word of Mohammad who said he talked to God. Mohammad was a pedophile who had little girls as his wife. He allowed Muslims four wives but he said God told him he could have more.

    When a religion is based on the writings of a war mongering child molester how can we expect they will treat women with civility?

    The amazing this is that half the bastards will talk badly about the US yet run right to this country when they get the first chance to come here. Look at the Yalinban guy over at Yale.

    I am working on my own response to liberalism. It will be based on Jeff Foxworthy's You might be a Redneck. I hope to start on it soon.

    Nice post Angel.
    Yes, more than ironic how the libs and others who are PC go out of their way to paint women as victims in the West. These same people then go out of their way not to criticize the Muslims and the way they treat women.
    This once again shows the dishonesty and cowardice of the libs and the horror of the religion of peace.

    I hope Big Dog will let me know as well. It sounds interesting. :)

    Moose-limb=savage, brutal slavery. Those who deny it are either Western useful idiots or lying enablers (both Westerners and fake "moderate" moose-limbs).

    Rule number one: how can you tell when a Mooselimb is lying? They are claiming Mohammed was a moral person and/or Islam is a "religion of peace"—both lies of gargantuan proportions.

    Big Dog makes a good point. Mohammed said he talked with allah and his moon-god told him what to say. Of course, one of the things his moon-god told him was that only Mohammed would have the priviledge of talking with him. No one else could ever hear from this allah fella. ONLY Mohammed, the Butcher of Medina (and Mecca, for that matter, among many other places... ). Funny how that works. Kinda like a fake medium at a seance.

    Another great post on a widely unreported problem. I believe the Left gives Islam a pass because they feel the Muslims are victims and people of color. Therefore, unimpeachable. All the while the left claims to be more open minded.

    I wonder if any Islamic country could spark a "suffrage movement" like the one that struck America and other Western governments. Unfortunately, unlike the Constitution, Sharia law is not on their side.

    Sharia law isn't good for women, children or anyone else but Muslim men.

    Why do people defend such an insult to human rights?
