Why Doesn’t America Have Feminist Extremists Like These?


The women who participated in a protest at a mosque in Stockholm are members of FEMEN.

Over the weekend, a coven of Ukranian feminists dressed in black robes went to a mosque in Stockholm. They went inside, taking off their shoes as a show of respect. The place was mostly empty, which hurts the impact of what they did a little bit. But we’re all reading about it, so what they did next obviously resonated beyond Sweden.

They ripped off their black robes, revealing slogans emblazoned across their topless torsos. The slogans said things like “No Sharia in Egypt and the world” and “My body is mine, not somebody’s honor.” They shouted things like “Free women!” and “No oppression!”

As happened at a similar protest six weeks ago in Tunisia, the half-naked protesters were hilariously dragged from the scene, probably by sheepish men in impeccable suits. They were jailed and charged on charges of suspicion of disorderly conduct.

The women are members of FEMEN, a 5-year-old Ukranian women’s organization that, unlike the consumer-grade lifestyle feminist movements that preoccupy the affluent ennui of liberals in Western society, actually has a few things to fight about — and Islamic repression lies at the heart of nearly all of it.

“If we did that demonstration in my country, we [would be] raped; we’re going to be cut with knives; we [would be] killed,” said Egyptian protester Aliaa Magda. “We should not be called ‘whores,’ or [told that] we are doing something shameful, like they were calling us today in the mosque,” said another unnamed protester. “They were calling us whores, whores from hell.”

Call them whatever you want. But they’re not fighting for more social support for prostitutes or Federal mandates on access to late-term abortions. They’re fighting against Islamic extremism and the brutal male fantasy of Sharia law, which imposes unbelievable structure, bondage and punishment on women living in societies where Sharia serves as the arbiter of Islamic justice.

The Clarion Project, a New York-based nonprofit group that targets Islamic extremism, describes the danger the United States faces if its political, business and cultural leaders don’t start drawing a line to turn back the slow creep of Sharia influence, as Muslims put down roots in the Western world in greater numbers. It’s clearly a case of encouraging assimilation into liberal Western society, as opposed to fostering pockets of Islamic extremism that remain capable of adhering to Sharia practice in a radical colonization of the West:


Quote:
Under Muslim Sharia law, the clothes you wear, the music you listen to, and the television you watch would all be censored. Behavior in public is legally restricted and controlled. And Sharia is the ideal social system for those that preach Radical Islam. Sharia is an Arabic term referring to a legal framework to regulate public and private aspects of life based upon specific Islamic teachings.

Sharia does not dominate the rule of law today in western society, but dangerous elements of Sharia are rapidly creeping into institutions across the western world. Sharia has infiltrated major western financial institutions that now run Sharia Finance or Islamic Banking Divisions. Sharia ideology has a very real influence on the creation of public school curriculums and the publication of textbooks in the United States. Radical Islamists promote the idea that Muslim communities should be subject to their own separate law.
Very few American leaders have shown they possess the combination of common sense and resolve necessary to publicly speak against even the extremist form of Islamic practice — even though it prescribes all-out social revolution in countries like the United States and insinuates itself not merely into the religious sphere of citizens’ private lives, but also into the fabric of society itself: jurisprudence, property ownership, law enforcement and politics.

If FEMEN stages one of its protests on American soil, will anyone have the will to stand up and say it’s right?

These women are fighting against real discrimination, not the fake "War on Women" the Democrats like to throw at Republicans.

Yeah they are really on a roll with that aren't they? It's sickening.
