One of the defining features of Islam is its obsession with sex. Every rule regarding women is based upon a driving need to control their sexuality. They are married off as children, sequestered, dressed in clothes that rob them of any hint of femininity, deprived of any opportunities to function outside the reproductive sphere, and fearfully abused, with stonings, hangings, beheadings and beatings if they transgress in any way Islamic rules regarding their sexual or even merely feminine behavior.
A large part of the Islamic world’s hatred for America specifically, and the West generally, is premised upon the fact that the West gives women sexual freedom. And by sexual freedom, I don’t simply mean the freedom to have sex. I mean the freedom to be feminine in public.
The fearful degradation directed at women has two extremely ugly manifestations. The first is pedophilia, and the second is an obsession with pornography. (You’ll recall that both the 9/11 and Fort Hood terrorists spent their last days on earth visiting strip clubs.)
Now, word is coming out of Afghanistan that an Af/Pak warlord, both to feed his lust (which includes both pedophilia and rape) and to fund his war chest, arranged to have local women raped, with the rapes filmed and distributed for profit. When word leaked out that he was involved, he responded by murdering the participants, both the men who carried out the raping and filming, and the innocent young girls who were brutalized. He also destroyed all the videos, or so he thought. In fact, a video landed in the hands of one Imam who actually has a conscience and prepared a video speaking out against these loathsome moral transgressions. Author Brad Thor got a hold of the video, and you can now read the whole sordid story and see the video at The Jawa Report. I should warn you that the video is very graphic, and that’s despite the fact that much of it is edited out.
Because the video and the story behind it so perfectly illustrate the dangerous pathologies that drive radical Islam, Rusty would like his post to go viral. (He actually asked that the video go viral, but I think his post is a sufficiently important backdrop that you really shouldn’t have one without the other.) So, I’m doing my bit, and I hope that you do yours.
