“But why do Muslims hate their women?” And I reply, “Because their god does.”

Posted by sioede on December 2, 2009

Atlas Shruggs (Pamela Geller) The Wafanator! Wafa Sultan in NYC I spent an amazing morning with Wafa Sultan, author of the best book of the year, “A God Who Hates.” She was on her way to debate Daniel Pipes ……….. what’s the debate? We see how successful Pipes’ hypothesis of the moderate Muslims has fared in the last 10, 20 years. I would have loved to be at the debate. But I could not get in. Hmmmmmmmm, I wonder why. Wafa Sultan is a singular voice of Islam, a leading light in the war we engaged in. Her warning to the west, to America, must be heeded. If you missed my interview with Wafa, listen here. Bostom on Sultan: More than two decades before Wafa Sultan’s Al-Jazeera television debate with a Muslim cleric ignited an international firestorm, she traced her own transformative “intellectual shock” to reading two books by Saudi writer and freethinker Abdullah al-Qasimi, who fled his native country after being (predictably) condemned to death for “apostasy/blasphemy.” Regarding al-Qasimi’s criticism of Islam, Wafa Sultan observes that he, …attacked Islam…in such a way as to make the closed mind stop and really think. He was an original and creative writer with an excellent command of Arabic. His style was enjoyable to read and easy to understand, and it led his readers almost imperceptibly to the point where they could not help but agree with him, at least privately. The fact that he was from Saudi Arabia, the cradle of Islam, gave him another kind of authenticity. She describes how al-Qasimi’s taboo writings were privately shared: His books were not readily available, but we found a way to get copies and share them. I remember a young woman in her early twenties at the hospital where I worked once confessed to me secretly that she read Al-Qasimi’s works, and asked if she could borrow one of them from me. I wrapped the book in one of my dresses to conceal it and, as I gave it to her, made a great show of telling her she could wear the dress to her sister’s wedding on condition she return it afterwards. Wafa also acknowledges her recurrent fear of revealing she had read al-Qasimi, “lest she should be accused of apostasy.” At that time, she states, Like most Muslims today, I tried to interpret everything on the basis of a belief that I was frightened to see contradicted: I believed that people’s interpretation of Islam, rather than Islam itself, was responsible for the shortcomings of our Muslim countries. Moreover, Wafa admits that her devoted husband was reassured by this mindset because, …he had felt from the outset that my belief that it was Muslims rather than Islam that was at fault would perhaps help protect us from the potentially serious consequences of living in a society that did not permit its individual members to take the smallest step toward examining any of its taboos… The riveting personal narrative of “A God Who Hates” makes plain that Wafa Sultan’s views have evolved, and she now posits that Islam itself is the bane of the global Muslim community, or “umma.” She argues compellingly that traditional, mainstream conceptions of the God of Islam, Allah, and his Apostle Muhammad, bear ultimate responsibility for the bellicose aggressiveness, intolerance, and misogyny that pervade Muslim societies. Indeed, the book’s central motif characterizes Islam’s Allah as the deceptively fierce ogre in an Arabian parable, raging from his mountaintop perch: From where he sits, he raves and shrieks, filling people’s hearts with fear by threatening to gobble them up if they leave their homes or do any kind of work at all. The people terrorized by his shrieks, can live only by stealth. Only their survival instinct keeps them going. They steal out like mice in secret to gather enough to keep body and soul together. They live day by day, waiting impatiently for the moment of their death. The fear of this ogre has sapped their intellect and depleted their physical powers, reducing them to despair and hopelessness. Muhammad, Allah’s Apostle, she notes unapologetically, “…was a warrior rather than a thinker.” Thus, she continues, He left no moral legacy for his followers to build upon or use as a basis for the societies they founded. Nor did he leave them room outside the boundaries of this law in which they might have exercised their freedoms and perhaps, responding to the demands of time, have invented a moral code of their own. The most important traditions written and handed down about Muhammad concern his raids and what happened in the course of them. All his teachings stem from the realities of the world he lived in and are the indisputable product of it. If you read the biography of the Prophet from beginning to end you will find no trace of any kind of moral authority. And in response to the query, “Why do they hate us?”—incessantly repeated by naïve, hapless Americans following the 9/11/01 carnage—Wafa Sultan provides these answers: “Because Muslims hate their women, and any group who hates their women can’t love anyone else.” People [then] ask, “But why do Muslims hate their women?” And I reply, “Because their god does.”

    Thank you, I always add the sources as you can check, because I just do nothing else than gathering articles of various authors I find interesting. This time there went something wrong with the update. I am terribly sorry for that.
