Women's rights in the mostly Arab countries of the region are among the worst in the world,.

"Yes: MEN hate the WOMEN .... It must be said." But, they aren't the only ones on the list,

Women are different than men in many ways and when men are afraid of having their power taken away when strength is no longer necessary for leadership. they react in brutal ways.

Perhaps, it explains the republican version of the Taliban's intensity of desire to control the reproductive processes of women. If they take that away, they hold much power over women .like the ol--saying barefoot and pregnant.

Muslims insist that theirs is a religion of peace - then the proceed to treat women like chattel, objects to be abused and battered. The Islamic State creeps are the worst enemies that Islam has.

Islamic authorities around the world acknowledge that ISIS is true to the tenets of Islam. They simply don't care about the rest of the world's compulsion with political correctness and are far more honest and proud about what Islam actually stands for and how they are rescuing it.

If the "holy" books of Islam and its history did not preach and carry out exactly what ISIS is carrying out, then we wouldn't see so many Sunni Muslims from almost all countries in the world, leaving their homes and everything behind to take up arms and fight along with ISIS.

There is even an article today that whole families are uprooting themselves from European countries to live in the ISIS Caliphate.

"Entire Families Answer Islamic State's Call"

It's highly doubtful that so many Sunnis from so many different countries would find ISIS's approach to Islam un-Islamic and risk losing all they have, including their lives to join Dar al-Harb.
