Imams lie to Canadians about Islam


Europe News

In response to the murder in Kingston, Ontario, of four female members of an Islamic family by the families patriarch, his second wife and his eldest son, thirty-four Imams from Canada and the United States issued a fatwa in Mississauga, Ontario, last Saturday condemning honour killings, domestic violence and misogyny as non-Islamic, saying that these things had no place in Islam and Islam couldn’t be blamed when they occurred in Islamic communities.
Those are lies, blatant, deliberate lies.
Violence against women and children is at the very heart of Islam and has been since it first came into existence 1,400 years ago. It is sanctioned and mandated in the Koran and has been upheld in innumerable rulings and religious texts through the ages. It has always been an integral part of life under Islam and remains so to the present day in Islamic communities all over the world, including Canada. This is the incontrovertible, unvarnished truth, and anyone who says differently is either an apologist for Islam, knows nothing about it, is gullible or is lying through their teeth.
Three of the four victims were the teenage daughters of the patriarch and the fourth was his 52-year-old first wife. That all four victims were female is no surprise.
In Islam, there is no penalty at all for a father who kills his child. In Islam, a woman is nothing more than a chattel, a piece of property, and all aspects of her life, including her sexuality, are controlled by men and she has no freedom or independence of her own except that which is granted to her by them. Even that has strict limitations and is at the behest of men. In Islam, women are objects and are in no way equal to men, in Islamic law or in practice. Women can be assaulted, mutilated or murdered for many reasons in Islam and offending men in some way is one of them. That includes causing men to lose face or offending their sense of Islamic propriety in some way, acting outside of Islamic bounds and Islamic religious imperatives as laid down in the Koran. The bulk of Muslim men in Canada and the United States treat their wives, children and female siblings in a kind, loving, respectful, non-threatening, non-violent manner but that is in spite of Islam, not because of it. If they are not so inclined Islam gives them every reason to act as they wish. Put another way, if they are so inclined, Islam gives them every reason to act as violently as they see fit.
Honour killings, domestic violence and misogyny non-Islamic? Rubbish, absolute rubbish. They are the prerogative of every man and are part of the very core of Islam, part of its essence and nature. The three teenagers offended their fathers honour and he felt perfectly justified by Islam in murdering them, which he was. His first wife was simply disposable and Islam justified him getting rid of her too.
The thirty-four Imams are of course well aware of all this. That raises the question of why they lied, why they tried to deceive Canadians? Why did a Calgary, Alberta-based Imam say "So if anybody is thinking that honour killing is allowed in Islam, or domestic violence is okay or misogyny is okay, we are saying no, you are dead wrong,” when he knows this is untrue, when he knows the opposite is true? Islam answers that question very clearly. (...)
