Women in the West are blessed with freedom. That freedom, of course, is based on Judeo-Christian precepts. This liberty allows us to realize we are equal in value to men, yet different in attributes and abilities than men.
But what of the women who are not as fortunate as we…who have been born into the tyrannical, misogynistic ideology of Islam? Not so much…
Places like Dubai (United Arab Emirates) are admired by men in the West because Dubai is a monarchy with beaucoup bucks. Their lavish appearance draws businessmen and politiques from the West, but beneath their sensational architecture, they are a tyrannical regime strangling their people (especially women) under Sharia Islamic Law.
Women are viewed as Muhammed viewed them: As chattel, property men can use and abuse…with the Quran’s blessings…
Enter Hollywood…a community that is Leftist, Feminist and lauds itself as a defender of women’s rights. Now, surely, if you were a woman in Hollywood…at a prominent level as a role model… to be true to your so-called feminist leanings, you’d do all you could to help these women incarcerated under Islamic Law, right?
Well, if Rihanna or Selena Gomez happen to be coming to your Muslim country: You’re out of luck…
Rihanna, went to Dubai over a year ago for a concert and photo shoot. She visited the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the largest religious center in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). She posed for some apparent racy pics (by Sharia standards) and was asked to leave. Now, if any other women would have done the same, they would have been brought up on charges and brutalized or executed. But not Rihanna because she’s a celebrity…she knows she will escape with impunity.
Did she take that opportunity and her position to speak out for Muslim women who are punished if THEY are raped, or did she rail against the inhumane penalty of flogging and stoning, which are legal punishment against women in the UAE?
Nope…because her concern for women only goes are far as her words…like every other Leftist.
Then we have Selena Gomez… Gomez, who lives under freedom, thought it would be rad to snap some leggy pics in the same Mosque…”leggy” in the Dubai means, she showed her ankles. Now she faces criticism from the global Muslim community.
CRITICISM! Again, if I had done the same, it would be death, if I’m lucky. But Gomez …she’s a Hollywood celeb, and she skates with impunity.
Did she use that privileged position to speak out for women under Islamic Law? Um…no.
For Hollywood Leftists…if they say they stand for women (and they only seem to say it when they are standing in the land of the free, because of the brave), that’s good enough. Why, you can even win a Nobel Peace Prize for simply saying you want peace…it’s the magic that is being a progressive.
Hollywood Feminists are essentially cowards. They talk a big talk at home under freedom’s protection, but when it comes down to using their privileged positions to help women enduring a barbaric, misogynistic ideology cloaked in religion…they prove yet again, to be the paltering pretenders we watch on film. Caring little how their folly escapes Islam’s draconian fist, while lending no aid to the women demeaned, diminished and destroyed under Sharia Law.
Until they take up the cause of women under Islam, they will forever be: Islam’s enablers…helping Islam hate women.
Shalom through strength…
