The World Where Israel is Just Another Nation

Just walk with us here for a while and let us examine how different the world would be if Israel were just one nation amongst all the others, no separate treatment, no organized and oil financed hate programs (or should they be called what they are, economic pogroms), no organized programs blanketing the larger and more prestigious universities and colleges, no oil financed terrorism on her borders, no rockets fired into her lands from much of her border, no looming threats from Hezballah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, no dictatorships set up on her borders for the sole reason of genocidal hatred driven murders, no intifada and no constant United Nations condemnations; just a little nation nestled along the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea, a nation about the size of New Jersey (see map if New Jersey replacing Israel with approximations of cities paired from each), a nation struggling from her birth just over seventy years ago and a nation which is really a marvel when one looks at her with unbiased eyes, objectively and without any tints of hatred or vile recriminations clouding vision obscuring the truth.

Imagine that Israel almost never makes the headlines in the New York Times at least twice each month claiming some recriminating proof that Israel is a terrible place. It really is not as we live here and it is simply very nice. Imagine that Israel was not forced into a war every two to three years because hundreds to thousands of rockets were being fired over her border. By the way, the first sign that something was wrong, as reported by the New York Times, would be when Israel finally responds to the assaults on her people. Then it is front page news, Israel attacks Gaza or Lebanon and somewhere around the next to last paragraph on a back page after two referrals to follow the article they finally report that Israel had been besieged by rockets for the past six weeks and the escalation had reached a point where it was no longer able to tolerate. Another way Israel is cast in a bad light in reports in the news is when they report that the Israeli police or the IDF killed a Palestinian Arab and eventually the article will note that the Palestinian Arab who was killed was attempting to kill the police or IDF attacking them with a knife, and they are not using the kitchen butter knife, even though some do take the meat cleaver or the largest carving knife from their kitchen while others use knives designed for combat situations. Without such reports along with the glowing coverage given to anti-Israel protests, many of which are paid for by the oil kingdoms of the Middle East or the Muslim Brotherhood and its numerous organizations which act in concert with the Muslim Brotherhood directions. We just have to bring up one reporter who was asking questions of an IDF command officer who had a question concerning the Iron Dome systems. This reporter asked the IDF commander why Israel has not provided the Iron Dome systems to the people of Gaza to protect them from missiles fired into Gaza. The commander simply called on the next reporter. The biggest item to report on in the Gaza war was the casualty statistics with some coverage reaching stages of ghoulish proportions that it often appeared as if they were asking, where are the dead Israelis, actually more like where are the dead Jews. For an excellent, if long, article which may tempt one to take notes, can be read here. But enough about how Israel is mercilessly vilified by much of Western media, let us go on to what if Israel made the news as often as and for similar reasons as Canada or Shangri-La.

 

If Israel were any normative nation which is the homeland of its people, obviously not all of them as some reside elsewhere just as every one of French origins do not reside in France, not all Chinese live in China or Taiwan and not all Filipinos reside in the Philippines. Thus, not all Jews live in Israel. Further, not all Israeli citizens are Jewish, only about 70% with close to 20% are Arab plus 2% Christian as well as 2% Druze with Bedouin, Hindu, Filipinos and Baha’I making up the remaining 4% or there abouts. Another item which people often get wrong is that the Jews of Israel are not predominantly European. There is a close balance between European Jews and Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews largely refugees from the Arab and Muslim worlds. The remainder which accounts for between ten and fifteen percent (some guesswork here) are largely from India, South America and Ethiopia. The Jews in Israel span the racial spectrum from Caucasian to Indian or Ethiopian and virtually every possible inclusion between. Israel, other than for the large percentage being Jewish, is a fairly normal appearing Western nation with people from all corners of the globe and racial mix probably more varied than the average European nation. Certainly, the population is very diverse for a nation of Israel’s size. Israel does make one list which is very positive, the happiness index of nations where Israel was number eleven, last time we checked. As residents and citizens of Israel, we can verify that Israelis are, as a whole, very happy people, very helpful, courteous, kind and understanding. Our little theory is that the having to mix populations from varied origins, most arriving with little wealth, and reviving a language which had been considered a dead language used solely in religious services longer than Latin, namely Hebrew, that Israel has one of the most diverse and interesting mixes of the various populations.

 

Israel would make a great success story if only anybody cared to report the positive sides of Israel. Israel is the first nation to be revived after over two millennia of her being conquered and her people dispersed over the entire planet. Hebrew is the only language to have been considered dead to be revitalized and brought into daily use. Within seventy years Israel has become one of the leaders in the technology fields, specifically apps and computer technologies, both hardware and software. Israel has been named the Start-up Nation as she has the most start-up companies per capita even ahead of the United States who came in a respectable second. Israel is a leader in agricultural technologies. She has led the way in providing agricultural know how to African farmers assisting them in using less water and gaining greater yields from their crops. Israel also has provided numerous small villages and tribal villages with electrical power and cell phone service allowing them contact with the outside world for the first time. These systems use batteries which are recharged from solar technologies while they provide a tower and microwave relay to connect them with cell service. Israel is a leader in healthcare industries inventing new procedures, inventing or improving medical devices such as heart stents, making strides in cancer treatment and research and also making progress with treating age related diseases and many of the mentally handicapping diseases and birth defects. One of the areas in which an Israeli company has made strides is developing procedures for treating infant heart disabilities and spreading their knowledge. They have taught many surgeons these procedures and even in many cases opened up new departments in the hospitals whose physicians they have trained with all the required equipment, monitors and supplies. For young children with heart problems outside of the places treatments are available, they bring the child with family to Israel and treat them in Israel (this includes bringing children from nations with no relations with Israel clandestinely through a third neutral nation while never marking Israel on their travel documents, as doing so could endanger their lives. Excuse the plug here, but this group has a descriptive name, Save a Child’s Heart. These would be the kind of news stories coming from Israel if only she were a normal nation.

 

But Israel is not just another nation, is she. No, she is the home, ancient home, of the Israelites who later became the Judeans which, thanks to the Greeks and Romans after them simplifying things like names, simply Jews. This makes Israel the Jew amongst the nations of the world. This little statement defines the problem succinctly. Being the Jewish nation makes Israel the new and largest target for those who hate Jews, and we are talking about more than a few neo-Nazi and white supremacists. Anti-Semitism has a number of categories under which one must seek to find the truth. There are the above alt-right groups, communists, most of Islam, and the latest and fastest growing group, the progressives and the left, specifically the far left. The rapidly growing leftist anti-Semitism is the reason that Israel is so vilified by the Western media which has a far left bias. The hate-fest on the left is only going to grow and will become a force in Western politics sooner rather than later. The most recent elections in the United States may have the first wave of true anti-Israel bias declaring the Congress as their home turf causing Israel possible difficulties as described in this article. Then there are dark clouds over parts of Europe. Ireland is considering passing mandatory BDS legislation forbidding doing business with many Israeli companies. Britain may elect Jeremy Corbin as their next Prime Minister along with the Labor Party and its reported anti-Semitic problems which are gaining power and have found their home right along with the far left. The far left across Europe will continue to pose a greater and greater set of problems for Israel in her relations with much of Europe and the European Union. Israel’s best friends come from groups which make progressive and leftist Jews nervous, the right wing nationalists of Europe and the Republican Party in the United States. Israel was once a strong-point for leftists but Israel did something unforgivable, she started winning. Israel is no longer the weak surprise victor in the Six Day War. With her repeat performance after a debacle of a start to the following Yom Kippur War, Israel was now a problem because she was proving to have inner strength and resilience. Then there was the deal-breaker, the Israeli economy started to improve and continued to improve as the governments became more conservative and supportive of Capitalism. Israel stepped back slightly from her socialist beginnings which endeared her to the left and became a strong capitalist nation with nationalist governments becoming the norm.

 

Then Israel refused to surrender completely to the Palestinians, the new media and leftist darlings who could do no wrong. That was the last straw for the far left as they fully throatily support the Palestinian cause. As the average citizen of Europe and North America rely heavily on the mainstream media and the news blurbs they catch between half-hour blocks of their favorite music, their knowledge about Israel is between scant and none. We are talking real and actual knowledge, not the wild and horrific picture Israel has been painted as by the media. Some of the editorial cartoons and many op-ed pages are close to being reconditioned material taken from Der Stürmer, the Nazi tabloid. Just as hateful against the Jews is telling old blood libels as news, they also published sexually explicit, anti-Catholic, anti-Communist, and anti-monarchist propaganda. They were the Fascist paper which supported the Nazis but without carrying their twisted cross thus gaining more general acceptance. The problem is Israel has replaced the Jew as the target for anti-Semitic hatred. Zionism is the new Judaism and is the beast which must be driven into the ground and killed. This is the only explanation for why the media parrots the lies and exaggerations provided as the official line by Hamas concerning Israel during the conflicts they have had with Israel. Then, when Hamas tells the truth that stating, “Fifty of the sixty-two Gazans killed in border violence were our members,” nobody prints it or shows the video (see below) on the news of the Hamas official broadcast and the silence was deafening. But then again, why show a story which has the people your reporting has been covering for and telling the Western world that the Israelis have murdered innocent peaceful protesters along the Gaza border all day long and then have Hamas official spokesperson claim that fifty out of sixty-two, over eighty-percent, of the casualties were Hamas operatives, terrorists, not innocent peaceful protesters. To make matters worse adding insult to injury, from further down in the article, allow us to quote, “The Iran-backed Palestinian Islamic Jihad had said on Tuesday that three members of its Saraya al-Quds military wing were killed by Israeli forces in Khan Younis.” That makes it fifty-three terrorists out of sixty-two, that is over eighty-five percent, on this single day of rioting and sending incendiary balloons into Israel, with rushing the border fence, burning thousands of tires, attempted breaching of the border, snipers crawling to the fence and more violence and almost all the Western nightly news showed the youths playing soccer and families having picnics claiming these were the examples of everyone at the Hamas ordered March of Return protest. The pictures shown on the newscasts were of the peaceful protesters who were close to half a mile from the fence and the violence. But the news cameras continued to point eastward with all the actual events taking place behind them to the west towards the border with Israel, but they had a story to sell. Israel murdering innocents during peaceful protest, that was their story and they were going to stick with it, and this means they could never show the prideful Hamas spokesperson claiming they had fifty shahids, dead martyrs, out of the sixty-two fatalities with Islamic Jihad claiming three others, nothing but the best chosen shots for the news, no reality television here.

 

 

That is what is so aggravating and sorry all at the same time. Israel is given short shrift no matter what she does. There is not an accusation which has not been leveled at Israel, as she can do nothing right. We face a world which desires that we surrender our lands to people who would just as soon see us dead. The one item we can give to Hamas is at least they say exactly what they mean. In their charter, they say it as plain as noon on a hot August day, they desire completely eradicating the Jews from the world. They desire to destroy Israel but they also have plans for what to do afterwards, murder every Jews on planet Earth. They desire the murder of approximately fifteen-million Jews ending our existence on planet Earth. Hamas has plans to complete the work begun by the Roman Empire, then followed up upon by Adolph Hitler and Hamas will pick up the remainder. That is what comes from the world’s first and greatest persecution of the whole of Israel completely, and this is exactly what the Quran calls for, from every follower of Allah must have this visceral hatred for the Jewish People. The Jews are to be denied basic rights such as land ownership. The Jews are to be eradicated and Iran has adopted this theme aiming to be the first to actually complete just such a task. This is part of the dream, that they not only eradicate the Jews within Israel and restore Islamic rule over the lands currently held by Jews, but then Hamas will do whatever it takes to eradicate the Jews in their entirety. This is simply further proof that their leadership is obsessed with destroying the Jewish People. This will leave them permanently dissatisfied and will bring about their downfall.

Anti-Western Hatred Doubles Down

 

There are movements across Europe and starting to fester within the United States which cast the Caucasian Race as the ultimate evil and a plague upon the Earth. This is often disguised as anti-colonialism despite the fact that colonialism dies a permanent death between the two World Wars. In France there have been reports of a great part of France has actually stood up to shout “Death to Whites,” and far worse including classes such as the one last July at the prestigious School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (Ehess) there was a workshop dedicated to the “white condition,” seen as intrinsically oppressive. There are also classes reserved for people other than whites offered in European Universities. Often these anti-white protests blame slavery as if it were a modern day problem in the Western World. It was the 1833 Slavery Abolition Act passed by Britain which brought slavery in the Western World to an end. The British navy, which ruled the seas, declared war upon the slave trade sinking every slave-ship they came across in the Atlantic Ocean and into the Mediterranean Sea. The United States ended the practice at the end of the Civil War in 1865 with the surrender by General Lee to General Grant in the Appomattox Courthouse. But why allow reality, history and the truth to get in the way of hyperbole.

Does slave trade actually exist in any form today? The unfortunate truth is yes. The most accurate data we were able to compile are represented in the map below. The reality is very quickly grasped that the Western World, the Caucasian world, where slavery has been all but eradicated. This, in and of itself, is solid refutation of the claims made by these protesters across Europe and North America. They are preaching to the one peoples on the Earth who ended the grotesque practice of slavery. These protesters would have faced a greater risk of being enslaved in their homelands than they do in Europe or North America. But, as we have been prone to pointing out, why allow reality get in the way of a great sounding slogan which fits so readily on poster-boards and chanted at a protest. There is a problem in Europe when it comes to unemployment as there are fewer and fewer jobs for all youth and that difficulty is even more prevalent amongst the immigrant population. Records for 2016 for Europe depict that foreign-born unemployment is almost fifteen percent while native-born unemployment sits at eight percent, just slightly over half as much. Many believe that the unemployment for foreign born is actually considerably higher as it is based upon known foreign population and omits those who entered illegally or never registered and thus are not included in the statistics. But unemployment is not slavery and further, being unemployed does not equate with starvation, as benefits are sufficient for a modest life. Slavery is a brutal and demeaning blight against humanity, especially in our modern world. The areas where this practice still exists should be the target of efforts to end such subjugation, but Europe and North America are not the correct target having rid themselves of this practice over a century and a half ago.

There has been one special nation which has been chosen as being doubly white despite having a wide mix of racial groups. That nation is Israel and it became deserving of this label because the Jews are considered to be whiter white people, a double white if you take the denotation by many protesters. The claim is that Israel is not the home of the Jews and that there never was a Jewish kingdom in the Holy Lands, let alone at least three, the original Twelve Tribes, the kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah, the Empire built by King David and King Solomon and Modern Israel with the borders as defined by the San Remo Conference, the Mandate System, the League of Nations, the United Nations and International Law (see map below). Israel is a multicultural nation with a desperate mixture of Jews from around the globe. The two largest groups of Jews are the Ashkenazi, the Sephardim, Ethiopian, Bnei Menashe (India), Moroccan, Mizrahi and Jews from every continent and virtually every nation where Jews were permitted to live (See Table Below). Further, there is DNA proof that despite the dispersion of Jews throughout the globe, for the most part, excluding modern converts, the Jews have remained a distinct people with their origins being the Middle East and specifically the region of the Holy Lands. The preponderance of evidence is that the Jewish People are in fact a unique group whose origins are the Holy Land and their claim to being the indigenous people is valid and thus completely rules out the colonial myth. Further, the immigration of Jews from every corner of the globe proves that Israel is a multicultural nation and with her Arab, Bedouin, Baha’I, Druze, Syriac Christians, Armenians, Kurds, and numerous other groups outside of her Jewish majority that Israel has amongst the most diverse ethnicity of any nation on Earth. That is the reality, yet Israel is cast by the protests across Europe and breaking into North America as a purely white colonial invasion of the purely Islamic Middle East when it is the Muslims who are the invaders arriving in the Seventh Century replacing a long line of previous invaders which included but is not limited to the Assyrians, Egyptians, Hittites, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Islamic Caliphate, Crusaders, Muslims led by Kurds under Salah ad-Din or Saladin, the Ottomans and the British. Finally, Israel has been returned to her first permanent civilization whose peoples remain to this day as an identifiable people.

Still, the truth can never get in the way of a wave of protesters who have a slogan which is catchy and can be chanted. It is of little help that many in Europe agree that Israel is an imposition, but not on Islam or the Arab Middle East, but on their new religion of Secular Humanity. Secular Humanists have an aberrant phobia against anything which supports Judeo-Christian ethics, and nothing says Judeo of Judeo-Christian than the reemergence of Israel, the originators of Judeo ethic and where Christian ethics got their birth. As the Islamic immigrants in Europe share this disdain for anything Judeo-Christian, the European elites have attached themselves to their movement. Their idea is they can take over and adjust Islam to fit the Secular Humanist agenda. We believe that these European elites are in for one very big surprise, and they probably will not like this surprise, as it is the will of Islam that it must supersede all others and do so through purity of its Quran as interpreted by their Imams. But when it comes to reality and truth, the Europeans and the rest of the Western World have had their way with the world and apparently are not completely done playing with other peoples’ affairs. This does partly explain the reason for the animus against Western civilization. What the world need prepare to face and find how to deal with is the coming resurgence of the third wave of Islamic conquest. The initial target is to finally, once and for all, take control of Europe. Many European elites are actually facilitating this making even more likely to become an inevitability. One of the main driving forces behind this is the fact that the Europeans have negative reproductive growth rates with almost every European nation and the United States having negative growth for their Caucasian population. This has also led to an aging Caucasian population across much of the Western World. What is even of greater interest is that the birth rate world-wide is dropping and getting close to dropping below replacement rate of 2.3 births per woman. Fortunately, here in Israel the birth rate per woman has begun to rise, especially amongst the Jewish population while it is dropping amongst the Arab population. Among Israeli Jewish women, the TFR reached 3.16, surpassing for the first time in Israel’s history the Arab fertility rate, which fell to 3.11 as from data reported by Arutz Sheva. The world is changing, some places for the better, others, not so much. Fortunately, here in Israel, despite the threats and intermittent crises, the future is actually looking to be a surprisingly optimistic outlook. This will continue despite what the protesters say around the world simply because we tend to disregard them. Now if only the European busybodies would go home and tend to their own problems and stop creating more for us here in Israel.

Rape, Sexual Harassment and Feminist Hypocrisy

 

Let us all admit this right up front, Harvey Weinstein was and probably still is a pig and a disgusting one at that. He deserves much of the scorn for his practices and using other human beings as sex objects, toys even. We should also accept that he operated in this fashion in a time when such was more of a common practice than today and was almost alive during times when slaves existed in many places around the globe openly. If we were to be complete honest about this practice, then we should expect to have much, if not most, of Hollywood, producers, major stars and starlets and to be sure, male and female sexual predators alike. But that is simply Hollywood and the sexual harassment and worse produced as matter of fact coin of the realm.

 

What about one who preached modesty for women, proper behavior and restraint for women, unbecoming clothing to hide the female form all so men would not act like the sexual predatory animals they presumably are and then acted exactly as one of those predatory animals men presumably are? Should the feminist lobby and membership be outraged or understanding as this presumably honorable man has been accused of acting boorishly, committing rape and taking advantage of his position of power and influence in order to take advantage of women who trusted him. The man holds and has held prestigious positions such as a former Professor of Contemporary Islamic Studies in the Faculty of Oriental Studies at St Antony’s College, Oxford, and also teaches at the Faculty of Theology and Religion, University of Oxford, is a visiting professor at the Faculty of Islamic Studies at Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Qatar, and the Université Mundiapolis in Morocco plus is also a senior research fellow at Doshisha University in Japan and is a Swiss academic, philosopher and writer. Since the accusations of sexual misconduct have piled up with some of the women unknowns, a few women of stature have also brought accusations that in their youth when they were not accomplished, they had been victims of this illustrious man of religion.

 

The man in question, as you have all probably recognized already, is Tariq Ramadan, the Islamic Imam extraordinaire of Europe and as much loved and respected by the seculars of Europe as he is by Muslims the world over. The allegations against Tariq Ramadan must be addressed seriously just as they would be inspected with all seriousness were this a cleric of another religion. Imagine how seriously women would be taken if they were to come forward with similar charges against one of the Catholic Bishops or Cardinals claiming that as a priest they had molested and raped these women in their youth or if high clergy of a protestant church or respected Rabbi were accused of these same charges. In any of these cases, the women would be canonized by the Feminist Movement and these Christian or Judaic clergy, religious men would not be permitted an ounce of sympathy and would be held accountable and their accusers believed just as have the charges against Harvey Weinstein. It has taken Oxford University a number of weeks before deciding to influence Tariq Ramadan to take a leave of absence until these matters have been cleared. The basic response in Europe has been to treat him with kid gloves and accuse the women of slander and protest their absurd and contemptible accusations against such a man who stands above reproach.

Did we miss the demand that we return to the 1950s or earlier where a woman accusing a man of rape was ridiculed and charged with asking for it or is this a unique case where the person accused is absolved due to their religious orientation granting automatic immunity against such charges. To claim that Tariq Ramadan cannot be held to the same standards as other men is to support the Islamic claim that if a woman was raped, then she deserved it unless she can produce four men to support her claims and were witness to such an act. There would never be four men who would claim to have witnessed such an act as rape and not intervened to prevent such an abhorrent act, thus the women could never produce sufficient witness to uphold her wild accusations. Tariq Ramadan would be dismissed as innocent and his accusers stoned in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria and much of the Islamic world. In reality, no woman would dare bring such charges in a Muslim nation, as they would know they were risking their own lives with such an accusation. To bring a charge such as these against a man of the stature and position of Tariq Ramadan would be certain death. Fortunately, these women are in the Western World and thus are not risking their lives, only their reputations.

 

But will being in the Western World make their accusations any more productive or will they be discarded as foolish women who should have known and expected such treatment from Tariq Ramadan meeting him in a private location without witnesses. They must have known that being alone with a Muslim man would drive his sexual desires beyond his abilities to control his actions. What were they thinking, one meeting him alone in a hotel room, she had to realize that he was inviting her to his own little den of iniquity. Meeting him alone anywhere, his office at Oxford, a meeting room at an Islamic Center, any location unsupervised would simply be an invitation to do with them as he pleased and he pleased to please them, or himself. These were Muslim women and one admitted to meeting him unveiled and wearing close fitting Western clothing which was in fashion, she had to be temporarily insane to agree to meet dressed thusly. These other students, they were likely improperly dressed to be meeting a Muslim man alone in an unobserved and remote location. The Quran warns women not to place themselves around Islamic men in any place or situation where the men might act animalistic as this is a temptation which no man can resist. Tariq Ramadan is being charged with being a man, a normal man under Islamic belief and as such, he could not be expected to withhold his desires and lusts in the presence of such temptresses. Obviously, the officials and public throughout Europe are well versed in all things Islamic and have already reached their verdict, Tariq Ramadan was acting as a man and these women are to blame for his actions against them as they were asking for it. They placed candy before an infantile mind and the child-man simply took the candy, what did they expect. If these women honestly believe that Tariq Ramadan did something untoward to them, maybe they should go back and consider the stress and irresistible temptations they placed before him and the terrible situation they imposed tempting him in such an unholy manner. To have expected anything different than what they received was simply ignorance and after all, would not any women accepting such a meeting with Tariq Ramadan be doing so knowing the result and secretly desiring such an end? We must understand that these women had glanced the beatific aura and rugged handsomeness that was Tariq Ramadan (see image below) and were taken by his radiance as well as the powerful positions he held and importance in the Islamic World, it is no wonder they sought to tempt him so shamelessly.

The end of this series of events, or fiasco depending on one’s predisposition, is still something we will need patience to wait and then ascertain. The initial reading of the tea leaves would indicate that Tariq Ramadan will lose some of his sheen but still be considered a radiant and brilliant person above reproach in the finer societies of Europe and for the leftists in the United States. He might lose his position at Oxford but is more likely to be granted a sabbatical to return to somewhere in the Middle East to further his studies only to make a triumphant return in a year to eighteen months. The women will be insisted to be more reserved and to reconsider their charges. Most will be glad to escape this circus intact and not permanently labeled as a woman without morals, as an easy woman. Hopefully, some will stick to their guns and perhaps receive support from some more prominent women, possibly Muslim women of prominence with a similar story from their past and Tariq Ramadan. There must be some Muslim woman who he demanded favors for a recommendation early in their career. Such a woman making an accusation would be risking becoming a pariah in the Islamic World and be without any support from the Islamic World. They would be signing their own death act should they return to the wrong country in the Middle East, North Africa or anywhere where Sharia is enforced. They would be best advised to avoid many of the Muslim neighborhoods where they enforce their own laws in Europe, the United States or elsewhere in the world. They would no longer be acceptable should they bring down a Muslim man for sexual misconduct as such so rarely exists in the Islamic World as to be considered an impossibility, something one would probably never witness in their lives. These women would become ostracized and face the wrath of Allah according to most Imams. This is the risk each of these women who have made accusations is already facing and that alone adds credence to their claims. The result of these claims and possible future claims will be interesting to watch, not so much the actions in Europe and the United States but throughout the Islamic World, that is where change is necessary and the reaction to this fiasco, as it is currently playing out, will tell us much about the future of the Muslim World, and thus the rest of the world as well.
