The Other Face of Jihad
by Phyllis Chesler
January 9, 2016
On New Year’s Eve, large gangs of Arab, North African, and Muslim men sexually assaulted women in a large number of cities in both Germany and in Austria.
These attackers, often a thousand strong, simultaneously stuck their fingers into every female orifice; groped, licked, hit, and terrified every vulnerable woman who was out celebrating the holiday.
The traumatized women did not all report these assaults to the police because they were traumatized and because many could not identify their attackers; there were so many of them. The media also under-reported these rapes—not until one hundred German women in the city of Cologne, a number that grew to close to 400 by the weekend, reported their assaults to the police, did the matter become public.

1,000 men, groping, touching, fingering and raping women to celebrate the New Year? I propose that if the New Year affords the opportunity to sexually assault women, so does any day, but for the opportunity. Why? Because any man who would do such things only does so because he has no respect for a woman as a human being but only as a sexual object to pleasure and satisfy his urges. I also propose that this is one door through which the Qur’an distinguishes itself as a male-favored religion and teaches women that they are but objects for the adornment and use of men:
The Prophet said, “After me I have not left any affliction more harmful to men than women.” (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 33)
The Prophet said, “If a man invites his wife to sleep with him and she refuses to come to him, then the angels send their curses on her till morning.” (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 121)
The Prophet said, “I looked at Paradise and saw that the majority of its residents were the poor; and I looked at the (Hell) Fire and saw that the majority of its residents were women.” (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 126)
The Prophet said, “If you enter (your town) at night (after coming from a journey), do not enter upon your family till the woman whose husband was absent (from the house) shaves her pubic hair and the woman with unkempt hair, combs her hair” Allah’s Apostle further said, “(O Jabir!) Seek to have offspring, seek to have offspring!” (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 173)
The Prophet said, “Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?” The women said, “Yes.” He said, “This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.” (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 48, Number 826)
Rifa’a divorced his wife whereupon ‘AbdurRahman bin Az-Zubair Al-Qurazi married her. ‘Aisha said that the lady (came), wearing a green veil (and complained to her (Aisha) of her husband and showed her a green spot on her skin caused by beating). It was the habit of ladies to support each other, so when Allah’s Apostle came, ‘Aisha said, “I have not seen any woman suffering as much as the believing women. Look! Her skin is greener than her clothes!” …… Allah’s Apostle said, to her, “If that is your intention, then know that it is unlawful for you to remarry Rifa’a unless Abdur-Rahman has had sexual intercourse with you.”……. (Sahih Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 72, Number 715)
The Prophet said: “When wife vexes her husband, then houris [sexual women] of paradise utter curses on her saying, ‘may God destroy you because he is with you only for a short time; he will shortly leave you to come to us.’ (Ibn-e-Majah, Vol. 1, p 560)
A woman in many ways is deprived of the possession of her own body. Even her milk belongs to her husband. (Bukhari, Vol. 7, p 27)
The Bible gives us an “identifier” for this male-favored religion:
Daniel 11:37 (NASB) And he will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. (Emphasis supplied)
I have posted on Daniel 11:37 before and shown how Islam’s treatment of women is another “piece of the puzzle” that snugly lays in the prophetic end-of-days puzzle. My prior post dealt with a fatwa issued by the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah Al Sheikh of Saudi Arabia who called for replacing the personal photos of female university students that appear on their ID cards with their fingerprints, as that “would be best.” Otherwise, “if they provoke fitna [temptation, sedition, etc],” the spokesman added, “Our men have every right to do so [rape them].” Is it possible that the marauding bands of Muslim men on the streets of Europe are because of a deep belief that women are sexual objects that have no rights?
Here is my previous post: No regard for the “desire of women” – Islam Fits the Profile
How is it that Islam calls America the Great Satan? Was it not the great sheikh, Osama bin Laden, whose computer was laden with pornography when he was killed by American special forces? Think about what just happened in Europe over New Year’s. The phrase that comes to my mind is a “sex-jihad.” Whether the sexual appetite of Muslim males gathered in hordes (or the social media or a fatwa issued by the caliph himself?), needless to say when 1,000 Muslim men gather to sexually assault non-Muslim females who just happen to walk into their designated harem, this is hardly a day that the sun shines on Islam, the religion of peace that treats all equally.
The closing statement of the MEMRI article succinctly describes the situation women all over Europe are living in these days:
If Germany and Austria—if all Europe–does not find, prosecute, and deport all the men who took part in the recent New Year’s Eve atrocities, they will soon discover that such attacks might become regular features of European life and will occur on most holidays; that, like Muslim women, European women will increasingly live in fear; begin to stay indoors; and that female workers will increasingly suffer from post-traumatic stress symptoms … Until it does—or failing that—elimination of the growing threat to the West will be required. That will only begin to happen when people realize that such mass public gang rapes represent the normalization of “Islamist” ways and are also another face of jihad. Read more.
Will the real Islam, please stand up? America isn’t the Great Satan. Islam points the finger at America when three more point right back at the perpetrator, the Qur’an and hadith of Islam.
Jesus come quickly. Before women perish under the hand of the religion of peace.
