**Posted by Phineas Greece and the Greeks have come in for some well-deserved criticism in recent years, first for their insane profligate borrowing and then for throwing a national tantrum and rioting when their creditors demanded they take steps to fix their fiscal mess. But, give the cradle of democracy, liberty, and Western civilization some […]

**Posted by Phineas After all, Muhammad married Aisha (his favorite wife) when she was six. But, lest you think him a lech, he did at least wait until she was nine before consummating the marriage. From Saudi Arabia’s Iqra TV, listen as cleric Muhammad al-Arifi assures us that there is no minimum age for marriage […]

**Posted by Phineas Pat Condell returns and opens this video with a correction: When he mentioned in an earlier video that news from Norway had shown that 100% of the rapes in Oslo over the last five years had been committed by Muslims, he failed to distinguish between date-rape and marital rape on the one […]

**Posted by Phineas Call it the Shiite bookend to the earlier post about a Sunni cleric who argued that mutilating prisoners is an act of compassion.

The United Nations as farce: an insult to the world’s women

Lara Logan’s rape as a symbol of Islam’s “silent scandal”

Posted by: Phineas on February 23, 2011 at 1:49 pm » 1 Comment

**Posted by Phineas “Silent scandal.” Those are the words former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy uses to describe the miserable condition of women under Islam, in which inferiority to men is theologically sanctioned and non-Islamic women — or a Muslim woman who doesn’t behave as she should — are open targets for beatings, rape, and even […]


Lara Logan attacked because she was “Jewish”

Posted by: Phineas on February 16, 2011 at 11:45 am » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas In a follow up to yesterday’s nauseating story, we see two themes that are central to Islam: contempt for women and hatred of Jews. Tragically for Lara Logan, they came to a focus in her. From The New York Post: “60 Minutes” correspondent Lara Logan was repeatedly sexually assaulted by thugs yelling, […]


Saudi Arabia: rape victim to be whipped

Posted by: Phineas on January 8, 2011 at 12:01 pm » 10 Comments

**Posted by Phineas In civilized countries, such as the United States or any other Western liberal democracy, a woman who was gang-raped would be given medical care and whatever therapy she needed to recover. If her attackers were captured, she’d have the right to testify against them in open court and see them punished. Remember, […]
