Muslim gang rapes in Australia -- "It's just my culture."
Here's the ugly truth behind multiculturalism -- not all cultures are equal -- and reality is only relative in an amoral universe.
By the way -- where is the feminist movement when it comes to this barbaric abuse of women in the Islamic world? Nary a peep -- makes you wonder about liberals, doesn't it?
Of course if you listen to a Muslim apologist he will tell you that the reason women have to walk around with bags over their heads in Islamic cultures is because Islam "honors" women -- just like they are "honored" with being gang raped, genitally mutilated and murdered by their families in honor killings.
Did you know that one of the primary causes of death of Saudi women is pedestrian traffic deaths? Why? Because the women are wearing bags over their heads and they can neither see nor hear the traffic when they cross the street.
In reality, there is something fundamentally very, very sick about Islamic culture and one can't help but think that it all seems to be rooted in an abhorrent fear and hatred of women by Islamic men.
Until Islam addresses this issue of how it treats its women Islam can never be a modern faith or one that leads to a stable and democratic government. You simply can't enslave half of your population and thrive as a society.
I must admit that hardly a day goes by that I don't begin my day by thanking God that I was not born a Muslim woman.
FrontPage magazine.com :: Muslim Gang Rapes and the Aussie Riots by Sharon Lapkin
In Australia this week amidst anger over an Islamic man’s rape conviction and the bashing of two Aussie life savers, working-class locals erupted in a rampage of anger and brawling in some of the worst racial riots in decades. But there is more to the story than is being repeated in the American mainstream media....
Four days after he set foot in Australia, the rape spree began. And during his sexual assault trial in a New South Wales courtroom, the Pakistani man began to berate one of his tearful 14-year-old victims because she had the temerity to shake her head at his testimony.
But she had every reason to express her disgust. After taking an oath on the Qur’an, the man – known only as MSK – told the court he had committed four attacks on girls as young as 13 because they had no right to say “no.” They were not covering their face or wearing a headscarf, and therefore, the rapist proclaimed: “I’m not doing anything wrong.”
MSK is already serving a 22-year jail term for leading his three younger brothers in a gang rape of two other young Sydney girls in 2002. In his own defence, he argued that his cultural background, was responsible for his crimes.
And he is right.
In some parts of Pakistan, sexual assault – including gang rape – is officially sanctified as a legitimate form of enforcing the social value system.
One village council recently ordered that five young girls should be “abducted, raped or murdered” for refusing to be treated as chattel. The girls were aged between six and thirteen when they were married without their knowledge, to pay a family debt.
And when Mukhtar Mai’s 12-year-old brother was alleged to have committed an offence in a small Pakistani farming village, the village council ordered that his sister be gang-raped. So, she was taken to a hut where four men repeatedly assaulted her.
According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan there were 804 cases of such officially orchestrated sexual assault in 2000, and 434 of these were gang rapes. And if that isn’t bad enough, the victims of these atrocities are then expected to commit suicide because rape victims bring irreparable shame upon their family.
So as MSK committed his acts of rape while visiting Australia, he was simply perpetuating his own cultural heritage. He hails from a society where officially sanctioned sexual violence is commonly employed as a means to enforce the subservience of women.
