poor female treatment is common

Reader comment on item: Arabian Sex Tourism

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Jul 2, 2007 at 21:58

Women have been treated poorly in islam from the beginning. The prophet mohammed at age 53 had sex with a 9 year old child.

If the good muslims wish the west or non muslims to view them with respect a good place to start is the poor treatment of women. End honor killings, allow women the vote, stop female genital mutilation. It is that easy, These barbaric practices should have been decades if not centuries ago. It is hard to believe the muslims when they say " we are the religion of peace , we are not terrorists , we are not the bad guy " when we see how poorly they treat their own women. Is this an indicator of how they will treat us.
