One aspect of radical Islamist aggression that is overlooked – or purposely ignored – by Western liberals is that non-Muslim women tend to be its greatest victims. According to a recent Open Doors study, “Christian women are among the most violated in the world, in maybe a way that we haven’t seen before.” The study revealed that six women are raped every day simply for being Christian.
The reason for this is simple. As harsh as Islamic law (sharia) is for men, it is even more so for women. The Koran gives men the authority to beat women for disobedience (4:34), that the testimony of two women equals that of one man (2:282); most of hell’s population consists of women; and women are likened to donkeys and dogs for distracting men from and annulling their prayer.
Such injustice for women is confirmed by a newly released report for the UK government on the application of sharia law in England and Wales – a report that reveals the “systemic discrimination against women.”
If Muslim women are viewed and treated as inferiors by radical Islamists, non-Muslim – “infidel” – women are, doubly so. They are seen as even more despicable than their male counterparts. Add to this the sexual subjugation of permitted beatings (Koran 4:34) and sex-on-demand, and it becomes clear why they are the greatest recipients of Islamic abuse — “meant for one thing, the pleasure of the Muslim man,” as one Muslim told a group of Christian girls, before terrorizing and murdering one of them. Koranic verses such as 4:24 seem to have encouraged the sexual enslavement of non-Muslim women in the context of jihad.
