According to her testimony in the Hadith, Muhammad physically struck his favorite wife Aisha for leaving the house without his permission. His less-favored wives would have fared no better. Aisha narrates, "He struck me on the chest which caused me pain."
In its continuing attempts to make peace with Islam, the U.S. State Department erroneously reports "that although Sharia (Quranic law) prohibits abuse and violence against innocent people, including women…" it had to admit that "such violence and abuse appear to be common problems."
On Wednesday, December 2, 2015 Abdulrahman Ali kidnapped and raped a female gas station attendant in North Dakota while chanting Allahu Akbar. When the police arrived he claimed that the woman was his wife. He has refused to appear in court. Ali’s sister responded by claiming her brother was suffering from mental health issues. That is likely true, but it does not explain why he felt religiously justified in violating the victim.
It is time to face the facts about Islam and sexual abuse. Let us consider recent incidents.
In September 2015, a 31-year-old Moroccan “asylum seeker” was arrested for raping a German woman in the city of Dresden. According to a report carried by Radio Dresden, the attack took place on Thursday, September 17, at the Nossener Bridge in the Dresden. That same month, a 7-year-old girl was raped by a North African migrant in a German park.
Since Sweden opened its doors to mass immigration, rapes have skyrocketed, with many of the rapists being immigrants. The Swedish Crime Prevention Council, which compiles the nation-wide statistics, shows that rapes are up from 3,787 in 2005 to 6,697 in 2014.
Gang rape -- virtually unknown before in Swedish criminal history - increased between 1995 and 2006. One of the worst cases occurred in 2012, when a 30-year old woman was raped by eight men in a housing project for asylum seekers, in the town of Mariannelund. Sweden's public prosecutor has called the incident "the worst crime of rape in Swedish criminal history."
A document made public by four organizations: LFR (Landesfrauenrat) Hessen, Der Paritätische Hessen, Pro Familia Hessen and the Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Hessischer Frauenbüros, asserts that women and children at a migrant camp in Hessen are being raped by Muslim “refugees” on such a regular basis that they are afraid to go to the bathroom at night and have to remain fully clothed when they sleep.
The United Kingdom, which is also set to accept 20,000 more refugees, has numerous cases of Muslim rape gangs, including a Pakistani sex trafficking ring in Rotherham. At least 1,400 children were sexually exploited by gangs of predominantly Pakistani men in the Rotherham area from 1997 to 2013.
