UPDATE 13:15 AEDT 15 February: Allowing Jacqui Lambie to call BS on Yassmin’s blatant falsehoods was ‘islamophobic’, according to a petition at change.org. This is because the filthy kuffar aren’t supposed to read about Islam from source texts and actually understand it for themselves, but are supposed to just swallow the Religion of Peace™ taqiyya/kitman without question.
It’s perfectly acceptable for a Muslim to lie in order to advance Islam (war is deceit, after all), so it’s hardly surprising that Yassmin Abdel-Magied tells the most appalling untruths about the status of women on ABC’s obnoxious Q&A, claiming Islam to be ‘feminist’.
Either she is lying or she is hopelessly ignorant about the true nature of the sharia – I’m sure she has a copy of Reliance of the Traveller (the standard exposition of sharia law) kicking around the house somewhere. Maybe she should blow the dust off it and refresh her memory a bit.
I got mine off the internet and what fascinating reading it is, containing gems like this one:
M6.10 It is unlawful for a free man to marry more than four women. It is fitter to confine oneself to just one.
Any more than four is just excessive. Menstrual or menstruation is mentioned over SIXTY times, because it’s regarded as unclean, and women are not permitted to recite the Koran or to go to mosque when menstruating – how liberating that must be. And one of the most ‘progressive’ laws must be this:
O24.9 If testimony concerns fornication or sodomy, then it requires four male witnesses who testify, in the case of fornication, that they have seen the offender insert the head of his penis into her vagina.
Like that would ever happen…
You can bet the Q&A apologists for Islam have never even bothered to research this, because they prefer to be kept in the dark believing that Islam is a Religion of Peace™ and now a Religion of Feminism™, rather than confront the harsh reality.
Islam is, and has been since the 7th century, patriarchal, misogynist and discriminatory towards women, and anyone who claims otherwise is either a liar or a fool.
