“Germany: Afghan slaughters mother of five in front of her children”

  • She was his wife, so under sharia, he had legal ownership of her and the children, to do with them as he liked

“Pakistan: Muslim throws acid on Christian when she won’t convert to Islam and enter into a relationship with him”

  • She was Christian and didn’t want to convert to Islam or enter a relationship with him

“France: An Islamist husband was sentenced. He had threatened – among other things – to disfigure his wife if she continued to speak in French. ‘It’s not serious, dad has the right to beat up mum to educate her’”

  • Understand, this is not “Islamism”: it’s orthodox Islam and per Quran 4:34, a husband indeed is commanded to beat his wife if she doesn’t obey him

“French teenager saves 13-year-old girl from rape by Algerian migrant with 11 convictions”

  • Quranic verse 33:50 makes quite clear that infidel women may be abused by Muslim men as “those whom your right hand possesses”

“Interview: Jewish woman flees from the Palestinian Authority”

  • This one’s a story with a happy ending: Jewish woman, married to abusive Muslim man, escapes from Ramallah with her children


  • While neither Quran nor hadiths speak explicitly to “honor killing’, when “honor” is in question, many Islamic countries’ legal codes are quite lenient.

“UK: Muslim rapes underage girl, forces her to write letter asking cops to drop the case”

  • The Quran teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (“captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30)

We’ll f**k now, otherwise I’ll slit your throat” – Muslim asylum seeker rapes German female student”

  • See above.

“Iraqis outraged after father kills YouTube star daughter

  • She wanted to pursue a career in Turkey. He decided that violated family honor.

“Afghan female students not allowed to sit university entrance exam

  • Women living under sharia are the property of their fathers, husbands, even sons. The 2004 Afghan constitution was written under U.S. Department of State supervision and subjects the country to Islamic Law.
