Er du ikke muslim da er du en hore, forstå det den som kan?

Er du ikke muslim da er du automatisk hore?

Jeg leste et innlegg i Aftenposten i dag der en kvinne forteller om hvordan muslimer ser på dem som ikke er muslimer og ikke anses tro på Gud.

“Anita Farzaneh (43) sitter på trikken og snakker med et familiemedlem.

«As-salamu alaikum!» hører hun plutselig fra en skjeggete, litt eldre mann. Farzaneh aner hva som kommer. Mannen vil sjekke om hun er en av dem, en god muslim. Denne muslimske måten å hilse på opplever hun som en test. Men Farzaneh har ikke tenkt til å late som. Hun svarer med det verdslige «hei!».

Mannen venter litt, før han sier, høyt og tydelig for alle i trikken:

«Er du ikke muslim?» Nei, svarer hun. «Hvorfor har du så kort skjørt?» Det er mitt valg, sier hun, og da kommer det: «Du er vantro og hore! Du kom bare hit for å få fri sex og alkohol!»” Aftenposten

Vantro, smake litt å det ordet, å si det ordet det er å være hovmodig – å mene at man er bedre enn andre. Hva sier Islam om hovmod? Er det en god egenskap?

Jeg er Skandinav, jeg er ikke muslim, jeg drikker ikke, jeg røyker ikke, jeg bruker ikke dop, jeg kler meg som jeg vil og jeg er ikke på byen og ragger menn for å ha sex. Dette er noe jeg har valgt selv, uten at noen har fortalt meg hva å gjøre, hverken foreldre eller noen andre. Godhet kommer fra innsiden. Det går fint an å være et fint og godt menneske, gå i skjørt og uten å være muslim. Det er ikke lengden på skjørtet eller valg av religion som bestemmer hvor mye godhet du har på innsiden, det bestemmer din innstilling til livet.

Ordet hore er en slangbetydning av en person som selger kroppen for penger. Om vi leser på Wikipedia:
Prostitusjon er salg av seksuelle tjenester mot betaling eller for andre gjentjenester. En person som selger seksuelle tjenester kalles på norsk for en prostituert eller sexarbeider. … I samfunnsdebatten benyttes ofte ordene “hore” for den som er den prostituerte, og “horekunde” for den som kjøper tjenesten av den prostituerte. Begge ordene er negativt ladet i det norske språk.” Wikipedia

Det virker litt uintelligent på meg at man drar liknelsen ved en ikke muslim og en hore spør du meg. Litt trangbodd i hodet som min far ville sagt om han hadde levd. Man er ikke automatisk hore fordi man ikke er muslim eller ikke tror på Gud.

Og skal ikke muslimer respektere folk av andre religioner, s.k. “Folk av boken”?

Mangel på oppdragelse, uforskammethet og hovmod er ikke en god egenskap. Jeg undrer hvor i Islam det står at det er okej?

A Muslim who Think Canada Should Ban the Niqab and Burka in Public

Today I read a article in Huffington Post that I find both good, right and interesting. It is good she comes out with this information, if someone like myself or any other non-muslim person would do that one risk to get the rasist flag smashed in ones face. The article is

As a Muslim, I Think Canada Should Ban the Niqab and Burka in Public

A Muslim mother who never saw a niqab when she was growing up in Karachi, Pakistan, she is astonished to see Canada’s judiciary caving in to Islamists who have nothing but contempt for Canada’s values of gender equality.

She says: “In the 25 years I have called Canada home, I have seen a steady rise of Muslim women being strangled in the pernicious black tent that is passed off to naïve and guilt-ridden white, mainstream Canadians as an essential Islamic practice.

The niqab and burka have nothing to do with Islam.

They’re the political flags of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, the Taliban, al-Qaida and Saudi Arabia.

Now I learn I have not only to fight the medieval, theocratic adherents of my faith for a safe space for myself, I have to battle the Federal Court of Canada as well, which has come out on the side of these face masks.

The ruling concerns the case of Zunera Ishaq, a 29-year-old woman who emigrated to Canada from Pakistan in 2008.

After previously showing her face to an immigration official in 2013 when taking her citizenship test, she refused to take part in the citizenship ceremony because she would have to show her face while taking the oath of citizenship.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government rightly banned face masks at such ceremonies, but this was found to be unlawful by the Federal Court.

With all due respect, let me introduce our Canadian judges to their Pakistani colleagues in the jihadi badlands of Peshawar.

In November 2004, the Chief Justice of the Peshawar High Court (PHC), Tariq Pervaiz Khan, ordered female lawyers not to wear face veils in courtrooms, saying they couldn’t be identified, nor assist the court properly while wearing veils.

He scolded the niqabi women saying,”You are professionals.”

Covering the face is not a religious requirement for Muslim women.

The injunction in the Qur’an is for modesty (for men and women).

Some Muslim women interpret this as covering their head with a scarf or chador.

A scholar of Islamic history, Prof. Mohammad Qadeer of Queen’s University, Kingston, wrote in the Globe and Mail in March 2006:

“The argument about concealing one’s face as a religious obligation, is contentious and is not backed by the evidence.”

He added, “in Western societies, the niqab also is a symbol of distrust for fellow citizens and a statement of self-segregation. The wearer of a face veil is conveying: ‘I am violated if you look at me.'”

It is a barrier in civic discourse. It also subverts public trust.”

The federal Liberals and NDP are treating Canada’s niqabis as latter-day Rosa Parks, fighting for justice.

This is vote-bank politics that is, as my friend and secular activist Tarek Fatah calls it, “sharia Bolshevism.”

There is just one way forward: The next government must legislate the complete ban on wearing face masks in public, not just to expose the hypocrisy of the Islamists but for the sake of our security as well.” Huffiington Post

And this is my claim also. I have read about the use of burqa, niqab and such garments for some years and and found that

Purdah or Pardaa (from Persian: پرده, meaning “curtain”) is the practice of concealing women from men. According to one definition:

Purdah is a curtain which makes sharp separation between the world of man and that of a woman, between the community as a whole and the family which is its heart, between the street and the home, the public and the private, just as it sharply separates society and the individual.

This takes two forms: physical segregation of the sexes, and the requirement for women to cover their bodies and conceal their form. Purdah exists in various forms in the Islamic world and among Hindu women in parts of India.

This segregational issues is taken even further than only clothing, and women many places are not allowed to leave the house without their father, brother, cousin, husband or other male relative. They are not allowed to go to school, work, meet in groups, or in any way blend with the opposite sex. This leads to non equality between theh sexes and this is a really disturbing practise. It give men the upper hand to do what they want and rule the lives of the women while women have no say in the matter.  Read more here in my blog post about it and also see My Stealthy Freedom (آزادی یواشکی زنان در ایران‎) and follow their Facebook and visit their website
Personally I do not agree with face covering at alle regardless of reason because it makes the person anonymous and I am not able to see who I am talking to, if the person is tru, is lying, is happy, sad, angry, aggressive, feel well or is sick. The person is deporsonalized and it is literally as talking to a curtain.

At work I do not like when people enter to the desk vailed or masked regardless of reason, and when it is not acrually a rule that women shall cover all it is wrong to make claims for it. Beside that I do not like covering of women since it is a wrong against equal rights between men and women.

Muslim women are being flogged for being raped

Was raped and sentenced to flogging

MALDIVES A 15 year old girl was sexually abused by her stepfather, and raped, got pregnent and the stepfather killed the child.

This is The Maldives a muslim country in 2014. Fornicaiton is forbidden and being raped is by The Maldives Law and other Islam countries Law as the same as having volontarily sex before or outside of marriage. In other muslim countries such individuals can even be stoned or hanged.

In The Maldives “The girl’s stepfather raped her for years and then murdered the baby she bore. Now the court is punishing her for “sex outside marriage.” President Waheed of the Maldives is already feeling global pressure on this, but we can force him to help save this girl and change the law to spare other victims this fate. This is how we’re winning the War on Women – by supporting women’s rights every time an outrage like this happens,” TTRWeekly

I have been to The Maldives in 1991, I did not know that they punish women for being raped. I am amazed they are not able to see the difference between forced sex and consented sex. I am amazed that they are not able to see that having sex With a child is the same as rape, especially when it is a child that is totally dependent on the parent or other adult. Not that any other relation would change the fact that it is child abuse in addition to rape. It is also misuse of the Power an adult have over children alongside With abuse of trust, a child do not have the same Power to say no and protect itself, but that does not mean it is not wrong to abuse the child.

Equality and Segregation

I find it a problem that the Norwegian Equality and Anti-discrimination ombud work for the right to wear hijab and maybe also burqa in official positions.

Internationally this is maybe old News and a long gone discussion. I am not a rasist, I have no problem With People immigrating and I like talking to them, and even be friends. I have no problem With that. But I have read on the subject hijab and burqa, and I have seen a lot of documentaries on the subject and learned what it stands for.

The Equality and Anti-discrimination ombud looks at it as I have learned in the light of the right to have a religion and to Express oneself that way. As a Equality and Anti-discrimination ombud they also have to stand up for the equality of women. So lets take a look at hijab and burqa and what it stands for.

Purdah or Pardaa (from Persian: پرده, meaning “curtain”) is the practice of concealing women from men. According to one definition:

Purdah is a curtain which makes sharp separation between the world of man and that of a woman, between the community as a whole and the family which is its heart, between the street and the home, the public and the private, just as it sharply separates society and the individual.

This takes two forms: physical segregation of the sexes, and the requirement for women to cover their bodies and conceal their form. Purdah exists in various forms in the Islamic world and among Hindu women in parts of India.

This segregational issues is taken even further than only clothing, and women many places are not allowed to leave the house without their father, brother, cousin, husband or other male relative. They are not allowed to go to school, work, meet in groups, or in any way blend with the opposite sex.

“Rules regarding Muslim women’s (and men’s) attire are derived from the Quran, Islam’s revealed text, and the traditions (hadith) of the Prophet Muhammad. In the Quran, states: [Chapter 24, verses 30-31] “Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty… And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and adornments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers…(a list of exceptions)”  [Chapter 33, verse 59] “O Prophet! Tell thy wives and daughters, and the believing women, that they should cast their outer garments over their persons…that they should be known and not molested.” There are similar, yet less obvious requirements for a Muslim male’s attire. 1) A Muslim man must always be covered from the navel to the knees. 2) A Muslim man should similarly not wear tight, sheer, revealing, or eye-catching clothing. In addition, a Muslim man is prohibited from wearing silk clothing (except for medical reasons) or gold jewelry. A Muslim woman may wear silk or gold.”

A fatwa, written by Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid on the Saudi Arabian website Islam QA, states:

“The correct view as indicated by the evidence is that the woman’s face is ‘awrah which must be covered. It is the most tempting part of her body, because what people look at most is the face, so the face is the greatest ‘awrah * of a woman.”

* Awrah or aurat (arabic: عورة) is an Islamic term that indicates which parts of the body to be treated as private and to be covered by clothing. Which parts of the body which is considered awrah is different for men and women and for children and adults, but there is also a variation between different Muslim orientations. The term awrah is derived from the root ‘AWR which means “flaw”, “imperfection” or “weakness”. The most common translation is, however, “nudity”.

Social effects
It is impossible to tell whether a woman wearing a burqa is smiling or crying or showing any other emotion. Women say that this leads to a feeling of being completely invisible.

Purdah is not to be restricted to the clothing, it runs all through the way of living. It is a patriarchal way of building the society where the men are the head masters and women to be at lower rank and devided from the men. This will in the long run mean that women can not be where men are. You think this sounds strange? Of course there are those who are milder in their way of practising Purdah, but then again you have those who are not. Most of them are those who wear those garments.

So why is it a problem that the The Equality and Anti-discrimination ombud work for it is ok to wear those garments?

On one hand you can say that they should have the right to practice their traditions, and that is of course right. One can also say it is good because then they can go to work and work. Of course.

But then again

They could do that without the hijab and the burqa. Purdah is segregation of the sexes, and a way to segregate the womens rights from the mens. In many countries where Purdah is practiced women may not work, may not go out alone, they have not the same rights as men, and in Saudi Arabia in 2013 they do not even have the right to drive a car even though they have a drivers licese. Purdah is the way to segregate. Many would argue it is not, even many of them who wear it. But if we look at the facts and the history behind those clothes we get the reality of the facts.

Is that what we want?

Saudi women driving movement

I have translated the article:

“Claiming women destroys the ovaries to drive
A Saudi minister asks women put reason ahead of emotions and warns them not to break the prohibition to drive yourself.

Should we believe the conservative minister Sheikh Saleh al – Lohaidan in Saudi Arabia’s top Mullah Counsil , the women driving may end ut damaged and really bad.

He claims it is known that female drivers destroy their ovaries and risk having children with clinical injuries, writes Reuters.

Women in Saudi Arabia are not allowed to drive themselves. A group of activists has launched a new campaign to challenge this ban. They encourage all Saudi women to get behind the wheel and drive yourself 26 October.

The campaign has been divided in style and has received support from several of the most famous female activists.

Mean female drivers have children with injuries
Sheikh Saleh al – Lohaidan , which is one of the 21 members of the country’s top Mullah counsil , looks therefore have to warn women that they risk destroying their sexual organs and ability to make healthy children if they defy the driving ban.

In an interview published Friday he asks women ” put reason before their hearts and feelings ,” according to Reuters.

– If a woman driving a car without it being extremely necessary, it can have negative physical consequences. Medical studies have shown that it automatically affects the ovaries and allows the pelvis is pushed upward , according to al – Lohaidan.

– That ‘s why the women who drive regularly have children with different clinical injuries, he claims.

He refers not to some case studies .

” Putting the Kingdom of embarrassment ”
It is not clear whether the other members of the priestly council parts al – Lohaidans vision.

It is not the first time he takes strongly against reform or measures designed to enhance Saudi women’s freedom. King Abdullah dismissed him as head of a legal counsel in 2009.

In documents leaked by Wikileaks, U.S. diplomats described al – Lohaidan as one that is known to prevent reforms.

They also think his ” ill-considered statements have put the kingdom in embarrassment more than once .”

Was sentenced to lashes for driving
There is no formal law that prevents Saudi women from driving. It is only a religious ruling issued by a religious leader when the car was introduced many decades ago .

If women will go places, they must be driven by either a hired driver or an employee, or by a male family member.

This has been challenged several times. A couple of years ago, a woman sentenced to ten lashes for driving the car herself, according to Amnesty International.

It happened two days after King Abdullag had granted women the right to vote in the country.”

As a woman professional driver with many femaile collueges driving heavy buses and having many perfectly healthy children I must say: Have he / them smoken their own socks? And if it will ruin the female ovaries to drive a car, what do they then mean will happen if they drive a bus??? Even more ruined? Then it would be as bad sitting in the passenger seat since it is sitting, so then maybe it is ruining the ovaries if they sit at all? Maybe a total sitting ban would do it? Women not allowed to sit on chairs, in sofas, on the floor, demand them to stand all life! Talk about men over there making make a public laughing stock out of themselves. And then all the other rubbish one read from women living over there. Are the men there even educated?


Saudiwoman's Weblog

Every accusation imaginable has been thrown at Saudi women who spoke up for their right to drive their own cars. Sheikhs and ultra conservatives have created this intricate conspiracy theory on how this whole demand is a well-planned Iranian/Shia plight to bring down the government by corrupting it’s women. Others have claimed that it is a Western conspiracy because somehow the Christian/Jewish West know deep down that Islam is the right path but they need to corrupt Muslim women through using their own women as an example. According to their logic, somehow women driving cars will lead to the fall of Islam. Confusing, I know, but nevertheless quite emotional and effective when presented in a religious context of salvation and preserving our faith and morals in an evil world. Another issue that they have is a “gotcha” argument where they say if women really wanted to drive for the good…
