What about equality?

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by Linda F (United States), May 18, 2006 at 04:59

I've been reading thousands of articles about the abuse of women across the Islamic World and it terrifies me. I have four daughters and I wonder what kind of Britain I am leaving behind for future generations of daughters.

How can Tony Blair call Islam the religion of peace? How can he pretend that Islam is not sexist? How can he consider accepting Turkey into the EU, a country where 50% of women accept that beating is part of married life?

Why did all those Albanians who came to this country get refugee status and then take over 75% of prostitution and increase incidents of sex trafficking? Where were the wives and girlfriends, mothers and daughters of these men if their country was so dangerous?

In the Koran it preaches that non Muslim women can be made into slaves and concubines, it also preaches death to anyone who doesn't believe in God and that no Muslim must make friends with Jews and Christians.

In Nigeria there is a virtual 50/50 split between Muslims and others (mainly Christian) as the government granted some autonomy to some mainly Muslim states, Sharia law is committing human rights abuses and attacks on Christian communities are increasing, Christians are leaving those areas in droves. Why can't we look at what is happening to those non Muslims, see the inactions of a government not willing to stand up to Muslims in numbers and learn from it?

What has this so called leader (and those around him) done to this countries long term future? What is going to happen to Europe as a whole as it's Muslim population grows. They are not integrating so it's obvious that it is WE who will have to change and adapt to their culture as they continue to have larger families. Their culture which doesn't recognise the equal rights of anyone other than Muslim males. Are people blind? Can't they see the blindingly obvious?
