The Imam-Endorsed Raping of Western Women [incl. Jonathan Brown]
In my last WND column, I explained the Quranic-commanded invasion of the West, called "hijrah," and how the unprecedented levels of immigration into Europe are a perfect example of it. However, this is only just one facet of Islam's global plan to dominate and overthrow Western civilization in order to force us to submit to Shariah law. Another one of these tactics is to rape Western females to make them, in effect, sex slaves.
On New Year's Eve last year, dozens of Muslim men sexually assaulted female patrons at bars and restaurants in downtown Frankfurt, Germany. These attacks, in which hordes of violent Muslim migrants harassed women in a "rape game" known as "taharrush gamea" (Arabic for "collective sexual harassment"), are a copycat of the mass sexual assaults of women in Cologne and other German cities on New Year's Eve 2015.
Is this somehow a mere coincidence? I think not, especially when we look at this in the light of Islamic teachings.
According to Islamic law, Muslim men are permitted to take "captives of the right hand" – spoils of war/slaves (Sura 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). Sura 33:50 says: "O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war." Sura 4:3 and 4:24 extend this "privilege" to Muslim men in general, as does this particular passage: "Certainly will the believers have succeeded: They who are during their prayer humbly submissive, and they who turn away from ill speech, and they who are observant of zakah, and they who guard their private parts except from their wives or those their right hands possess, for indeed, they will not be blamed" (Sura 23:1-6).
Because of the fact that the mass immigration into the West is "hijrah" and Western women are their "captives," Muslim men are permitted to rape them at their pleasure.
The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that "we are in the era of jihad," and as such, Muslims would undoubtedly take slaves. In a subsequent interview, he elaborated further:
Jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. Spoils, slaves and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars – there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth and so on.
When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex slaves, which are called in the Quran by the name milk al-yamin, "that which your right hands possess" [Quran 4:24]. This is a verse from the Quran which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn't need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point – there is no disagreement from any of them. ... When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.
And now even more recently, a Georgetown University professor-turned-Islamist named Jonathan Brown, in a very bizarre lecture on "Slavery and Islam," said that slavery is a part of human existence and implies that the term is a misnomer and isn't outright evil because there are so many different variations – slavery based on religion versus gender, for example. He implied that what really matters is whether those who were enslaved were treated well or poorly – not the fact that they were enslaved in the first place. Obviously, it seems that Brown has great difficulty understanding that slavery by its very nature is involuntary – and has been so for as long as its existence as a concept.
However, when challenged by a skeptical audience member, the professor admitted that "the fact that there was slavery is a wrong." But he quickly justified it by wielding his Islamic faith as the authority on the matter and spoke of the fact that the prophet Muhammad owned slaves – which therefore makes it right for the followers of Islam to do so.
"He had slaves," Brown said. "There's no denying that. Are you more morally mature than the prophet of God? No, you're not."
In arguing against autonomy and sexual consent, Brown seemed to imply that such things are based on skewed historical interpretation and do not fit in with Islam. The real truth is that Brown had no logic or reason for the basis of his arguments. Instead, he used the flawed and chaotic teachings found in the Quran to justify his beliefs on slavery and sexual oppression.
A perfect example of a Western country where taharrush gamea is practiced on a very frequent basis is Sweden. It began opening its doors to Muslim immigrants in the 1970s, and today it pays a high price for foolishly having done so. Those suffering the severest consequences of such a ridiculous open-door policy has been Swedish women. As Muslim men immigrated to Sweden to fulfill their duty to invade a Western country, they brought along with them an Islamic culture sanctioning rape. This perfectly explains why Sweden is dubbed "The Rape Capital of the West" and is No. 2 on the global list of rape countries, after Lesotho in South Africa. The Gatestone Institute notes, "Forty years after the Swedish parliament unanimously decided to change the formerly homogenous Sweden into a multicultural country, violent crime has increased by 300 percent and rapes by 1,472 percent."
This vile ideology inherently treats its own women terribly. Under Shariah, Muslim women are considered equal to dogs and donkeys (the lowest of all creatures, according to Islam) and serve little more purpose beyond catering to their husbands' sexual demands. A non-submissive wife runs the very high risk of being raped, beaten and even killed by her husband. So guess what Shariah-committed Muslims consider Western women? Even lesser than Muslim women.
The constant stream of migrant-instigated rapes we frequently hear about on the streets of such places as Berlin, Paris and Stockholm now make a lot of sense when we see that this is sanctioned by the Quran. Until the West acknowledges this and takes the necessary actions to prevent this from happening, we will continue to reap the fruits of the failed immigration policies we have sown.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
