Terrorism that’s personal (12 images) | Reporting with a camera

burka I ask anyone who wants to really know about Islam’s treatment of women to follow the link.  View the pictures.  See what this “religion of peace” justifies.  I must warn you though, do not do so unless you are ready for it.  The pictures are not pleasant to see and not pleasant to consider.

Keep in mind that most of the men involved in this are free and clear.  Women are afforded few rights in Islam and less when its against a man.

Qur’an (2:282)"And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women."

Bukhari (6:301)"[Muhammad] said, ‘Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?’  They replied in the affirmative.  He said, ‘This is the deficiency in her intelligence.’"

Muslim (4:1039)"A’isha said [to Muhammad]: ‘You have made us equal to the dogs and the asses’"

Ishaq 593 – "As for Ali, he said, ‘Women are plentiful, and you can easily change one for another.’"

Bukhari (72:715) – A woman seeks Muhammad’s help in leaving an abusive marriage, but is ordered by the prophet to return to her husband and submit to his commands.

As the United States ponders what to do in Afghanistan — and for that matter, in Pakistan — it is wise to understand both the political and the personal, that the very ignorance and illiteracy and misogyny that create the climate for these acid attacks can and does bleed over into the political realm. Nicholas Kristof, the New York Times op-ed columnist who traveled to Pakistan last year to write about acid attacks, put it this way in an essay at the time: “I’ve been investigating such acid attacks, which are commonly used to terrorize and subjugate women and girls in a swath of Asia from Afghanistan through Cambodia (men are almost never attacked with acid). Because women usually don’t matter in this part of the world, their attackers are rarely prosecuted and acid sales are usually not controlled. It’s a kind of terrorism that becomes accepted as part of the background noise in the region. …
