    Islam’s “Uncovered-Meat” Excuse for Sexual Assault

    By Nonie Darwish, FPM The news that 60 Minutes journalist Lara Logan had been brutally sexually assaulted and beaten in Egypt among chants of “Jew” really hit home. As a teenager and young woman in Egypt, I remember having to endure the humiliation of being pinched and groped in crowded buses and streets of Cairo. Onlookers are usually indifferent, some even laugh, leaving women in Muslim society even more ashamed of their bodies. Women who do not wear Islamic clothes, such as Christians and foreigners, are even more vulnerable. In Cairo, hearing a passing car yelling the “f” word or “whore” to a woman and then speeding up in the busy traffic is not uncommon. In times of uprisings and revolutions, it is not uncommon for the mob mentality to take over, resulting in assaults and even killing of journalists. But what happened to journalists in Egypt, including Logan, was an outrageous violation of police duty; instead of helping the foreign victims, the police added to the abuse by hours of unnecessary and abusive interrogation of the victims themselves.
    Egypt and many Muslim countries have a terrible record of sexual harassment. According to a survey conducted in 2008 by an Egyptian Women’s rights group, 83% of Egyptian women have been sexually harassed. The numbers for foreign women is a staggering 98%. Most of the men in the survey admitted they have harassed women and most of them blamed it on women for dressing provocatively. What is worse is that the majority of women in the survey believe that women who dress immodestly deserve the harassment. Muslim culture has succeeded in turning women against each other and away from defending their human rights and dignity. The system rewards women who turn on other women who do not follow Sharia. A Muslim woman is given her much-craved respect only when she reports and condemns immodest women, turns against her sisters and agrees with a misogynist culture that blames the female victims and not the predators. It was also reported that crowds yelled “Jew” at Logan. That does not surprise me, since a call that someone is a Jew has a meaning in Muslim countries. It means they are fair game for assault or worse; it means they are subhuman and deserve whatever happens to them. Muslim scriptures are full of commandments to kill Jews wherever they are and according to Islamic law, female captives in battle are automatically divorced from their husbands and can be sexually enslaved by their captors. Mohammed himself, who is viewed as the ideal example for men, in all his battles against non-Muslims allowed sexual enslavement of women captives. Such Islamic history lessons send the wrong message to Muslim men and influence how they view and relate to women and take away any feeling of guilt or shame. From birth, Muslim boys are excused and defended for misbehaving towards their sisters and women in general. The message is that uncovered women are to be loathed and disrespected. Muslim preachers often rush to blame women as having “asked for it” or being “uncovered meat”. Even in Australia, an Egyptian Muslim preacher, Sheik al-Hilali, used the “uncovered meat” excuse to defend Muslim men who raped Australian women wearing bikinis on the beach. These kind of religious teachings are the reason behind honor killing, female genital mutilation and abuse, all of which are designed to tame women and set an example to the rest of society. The anti-Jewish propaganda in Muslim countries is sickening and must be seen in relation to female abuse in general and to the assault of Logan in particular. Even I who was born and raised Egyptian once had a scary experience. On the way to Alexandria, an uncle wanted to stop in a village to meet a friend but got lost. As he went to look for directions, my siblings and I, who were wearing jeans and T-shirts and speaking English, attracted a village crowd around us yelling “Jews.” My sisters and I rushed inside the car. In no time the village police came to check us out but thank God by then my uncle showed them his ID and we left after some questioning. I can only imagine how Jews feel walking the street in any Muslim country. Egyptian paranoid propaganda against Westerners and Jews is not only manifested in streets but affects every aspect of relationships between the ordinary Egyptian and foreigners in general. Foreign women are often called “Israeli agents” who are coming to ‘seduce’ Egyptian men. As to foreign men, they are often accused of being – what else? – CIA agents. Many Egyptians describe the behavior of men who sexually harass women as un-Islamic and they believe this is a good enough explanation to end the conversation. They refuse to look within and see the truth behind the Islamic upbringing of men, how women are viewed both culturally and religiously and how Islamic teachings views non-Muslims. Muslims need to view themselves and the reality of their religious education more critically. Living in denial about one’s religion and the consequences of its teachings is toxic.

      The bottom line is that the buck “Muslim” is a primitive grunting savage that cannot control its most basic sexual urges and will gratify them on the slightest excuse. You can take the ape out of the jungle but you cannot take the jungle out of the ape–and not all “jungles” have rain forests or even trees, noting that militant “Muslims” tend to infest deserts and other treeless regions.

      Like I said, primitive animals that cannot control their primitive and violent sexual urges.

      I recently came across your wonderful website. I found it by following Stand4Israel on Twitter.

      I would like to applaud this site fir stating the truth and not being PC blinded whackjobs.

      This horror requires tremendous exposure, and we may not let any more of these animals into this country to contaminate our society!!! How do we get this into The New York Times!!!

      You can not.

      Printing the article would go against the Times’s agenda.

    7. sidney winawer says:

      we need more articles like this in the general press. should send these repeatedly to sympathtic press like NY POST and DAILY NEWS in NYC and to other papers around the country. perhaps this is already being done. these artcles are interesting to us but need a repetitive wider audience. also should be sent to college newspapers. we are already informed.

    8. Lilly says:

      What’s really scary about this unspeakably awful attack on Lara Logan is that feminist groups were/are silent. Not a word out of Now. Why does the left side with Islamists?

    9. Teshuvah says:

      In the Bible God commands people to support Israel. When they choose not to do so, God cuts them off, withholds understanding from them, and gives them over to believe a lie that they might be damned who don’t love the truth. It is spiritual. All the enemies of God love the things of the world in preference to loving God. This world was given over to Ha Satan at the time Adam and Eve’s Fall. Therefore, the people who love the things of the world, i.e. Mammon worshippers, are Satanists. Simple. People are either on God’s side or Satan’s side. None of the wicked shall understand. Just like the leftist in these short videos. Her head does not work properly.

      This world was given over to Ha Satan at the time Adam and Eve’s Fall.

      You can keep your imaginary doctrine of “original sin” to yourself.

      I’ve said it before: your forum name is a sham.

    11. Teshuvah says:

      Teshuvah means “repentance” and is not a sham. Why is it that the wicked do not understand and the wise do understand? Because the wise repent and the wicked do not.

      Dan 12:10 (JPS) Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but they that are wise shall understand.

      Repentance does not merely mean saying I’m sorry. It means turning from unrighteousness and doing the right thing continually, as well as making restitution where possible and demonstrating godly sorrow for past behavior. That should be the normal daily state of any Bible believer, Christian or Jew. That is why the Jews kicked out of Gaza should not forgive those who kicked them out. If anyone wants to be given understanding, they must first obey God and repent. The word Shema means hear, obey and AFTERWARDS be given understanding. See below from OU.org (dead URL).

      “Naaseh V’Nishma”
      “We will do first, and afterwards, understand” (Shemot 24:7)

      (Much of the material in this section is adapted with permission, from Sefer HaTodaah of Rabbi Eliyahu Kitov)

      The following are Midrashic comments on the somewhat rash declaration of faith and trust, cited above, by the People of Israel in Hashem:

      Rabbi Simai expounded: “When the People of Israel preceded “We will understand” by “We will do,” a Heavenly Voice was heard, saying, “Who revealed to my children this secret, which only the angels until now knew? as it is written (Psalms 103), ‘Praise Hashem, His Angels, Mighty in Strength, who Obey His Will, then Understand His Word’ – first obey, and afterwards, understand.

      When the People of Israel preceded “We will understand” by “We will do,” six hundred thousand angels came to them and tied two crowns to each, one corresponding to “We will do,” the other to “We will understand.” But when the People sinned (by worshipping the Golden Calf), one hundred twenty thousand angels came down and removed the crowns.

      “And they stood underneath the mountain” (Shemot 19); Rabbi Abdimi bar Chama said, “This teaches that the Holy One held the mountain over their heads, like a pot, and said to them, ‘If you accept the Torah, good! But if not – here will be your graves!’ ”

      (Even though they had already said that they would accept first, then understand? – only to emphasize that once they accepted, they would not be allowed to back away from their acceptance!)

      Comment: The description of Hashem as “holding the mountain over their head” is probably not meant to be taken literally. Rather, it should be understood as a warning that the only reason the Jewish People were living, in a sense, outside the normal historical rules, which would normally pronounce a verdict of oblivion on a relatively small nation, was their acceptance of G-d’s rules; namely, that they would live by the lifestyle of the Torah. If they would attempt to abandon that commitment, Hashem would withdraw, at least temporarily, His protection. http://www.ou.org/chagim/shavuot/naaseh.htm
