It's not enough for Americans to adopt "resolutions" opposing violence when Islamic girls are stoned for being victims of gang-rapes. Such violence has moved into the United States, with beatings and murders, including a recent beheading, documented.

Islamic honor killings take center stage
Women's rights group warns of beatings, executions

A human rights organization says it's not enough for Americans to adopt "resolutions" opposing violence when Islamic girls are stoned for being victims of gang-rapes and warns that such violence already has moved into the United States, with beatings and murders including a recent beheading documented.

The result is a plan for a public rally on March 8, International Women's Day, at the Capitol Reflecting Pool in Washington, D.C., according to the organization Responsible for Equality and Liberty.

"Every day, women are under attack by Islamic supremacism that supports and approves of oppression, mutilation, and murder of women. According to leaders and followers of Islamic supremacism, they have the right to commit violence against women. Islamic supremacism views oppression of women as a legitimate 'right,' violence against women as a legitimate 'right,' and murdering women as a legitimate 'right,'" the organization announced.

The organization cited the U.S. Senate response a resolution when not even a year ago a 13-year-old girl, Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow, was stoned in front of an African crowd of 1,000 as "punishment" for being the victim of a gang rape.

According to a BBC report, while she begged for mercy, those stoning her said they were doing the will of Allah.

But the Senate failed to even acknowledge the "Islamic supremacist ideology" behind the attack in Somalia, a nation which now is ruled by Islamic Shariah law from border to border, the group charged.

That same "ideology," now has arrived in America, too, the group warned.

"Being 'sorry' is not enough. Politicians' 'condemnations' are not enough. Ignoring the Islamic supremacist ideology behind the slaughter and oppression of women in America and around the world is not enough. If we don't speak out, if we don't demand more of our national and international leaders, more women will be murdered by Islamic supremacists."

According to the organization, the effects so far on American women have included one case in which a Muslim TV network founder honored by the Council on American-Islamic Relations was accused of beheading his wife. Authorities there decided that the suspect should only be charged with second-degree murder.

There also have been cases of beatings, a woman told she would be treated "like a dog," a death threat for "defaming" Islam, a daughter in Atlanta murder for "honor," and two Dallas teenagers killed for the "crime" of having boyfriends, the group said.

"We demand that American government leaders acknowledge the existence of Islamic supremacism and act on the threat of Islamic supremacism to women. Now," the group said.

"This global threat against women must be confronted by both men and women, not just by being 'sorry' about random violence or about 'extremist' actions against women, but by demanding that our representatives acknowledge that Islamic supremacism threatens them, and by calling for global action against Islamic supremacism," the group said.

The campaign also has been taken up by the United Nations, where its rapporteur, Yakin Etruk, has warned against the "growing crisis."

"Women must demand that their governments implement agreements on women's equality, rights and an end to violence against women, which have been signed but have yet to be carried out. In these countries, those who speak on behalf of Islam still justify things like stoning or killing a woman for this or that reason as being part of their religion," she said.

According to the Associated Press, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said seven women who were shot in the head in "honor killings" deserved their deaths.

They had "loose morals," he told reporters, and rightfully were shot by male relatives.

REAL also reported a Canadian girl was murdered for "honor," in France and Germany Muslim women are set on fire, and in Israel Arab women are poisoned or strangled for defying Islamic supremacist traditions.

"We rightly recognize and remember the 3,000 victims of the 9/11 terrorism attacks, but the 5,000 victims of 'honor killings' have no day set aside to remember them, and many of our world leaders would just as soon forget about them," wrote Jeffrey Imm, of REAL.

The organization is assembling a petition that calls upon both U.S. and U.N. officials "to recognize the global threat of oppression and violence to women from Islamic supremacism."

It demands national and international condemnation of Islamic supremacism as a threat to women everywhere, as well as measures to protect the women of the world.

What type of family is that, where Father - Brothers KILL THEIR SISTERS? And they talk about their HONOUR after that?

Where are the Moderate Muslims, if they exist? Why pro-Palestinians supporters who took ALL FIVE POPULAR STORIES today are silent? Why Capitalism critics are silent? And all these people keep silence on this issue, what is the price of their words?

According to the latest estimates around 5000 women were murdered in honour killings last year. What an absolute disgrace!!!
Zhorik, don't expect any compassion from that mob.If they can't manage to work in some anti-Israel propaganda they don't post.

This is a scourge that will take eons to eliminate, its too firmly ensconced.And to think that this Islamic crescent is a dream that will span the Middle East to Indonesia. Heaven help all women caught in this viscious net.

Stan, I don't expect co-operation from MALE Hamas supporters here. I am puzzled that FEMALE supporters are quiet as well: these rules affect their lives as well, or at least their relatives! Don't THEY want to be treated as HUMANS?

Where is the HONOUR in these honour killings? It is bad enough that it occurs unchallenged in those countries - but is also happening in the US, Australia, UK and continental Europe. Once these fanatic muslims get a foot in the door in those countries, out of political correctness, they are given the right to practice their barbaric Islamic laws (Syarie or better known as Shariah) If these countries don't crack down on those barbarians ensconded there now, we will all be lost in the not-too-distant future.

Couldn't agree more Marena. These lunatics have got away with far too much for far too long.
It's high time the civilized world took a firm stand. It could already be too late for countries like the U.K. France and Sweden.

Zhorik, Why would anyone who does not get kicks off abuse support these kind of radicals? I don't support abuse of anykind, not from muslims, Americans, the IDF or anyone? You sure love to try to muster hate for the Palestinians! With your profile, most people are likey to believe you are working for the IDF or Mossad. By the way, the source of this article is not exactly reputable in my book!
Abuse is not endemic to any one religion or geographical location!

Marty, smearing opponents does not fit decent people.

Your accusations is exact and plain smearing:
1. This article was not posted by me, I copied it for convenience;

2. This artile doesn't talk about Palestinian Arabs at all! It is about Islamic Supremasism and intolerance, which you said you don't support too! This barbarism happened here in the States, in Canada and EU. Understand?

3. I surely DON'T "love to try to muster hate for the Palestinians", I would rather have Arabs and Jews living peacefully as good neighbours! And some Islamic fanatics are staying on the way and preventing it.

4. Can you tell which other religions, other than those Islamic sects, PRAISES HONOUR KILLINGS?! Are you trying to defend the murderers of family members trying to live lives normal to West, where they live?

5. If Muslim Men and Women talked about this issues, why are dont YOU discuss it as well, from a Muslim point of view, to make the World a better place?

I don't work for IDF, Mossad, CIA, MI6 and other similar agencies. Should I ask you if YOU work for HAMAS Internet Defending Force? Profiles of quite a few people here are obviously misleading fakes, so they don't really mean a lot. WorldNetDaily is a reputable source for me - and either way, talk about the listed facts if you want to prove them wrong.

Marty, you are quite wrong. The kind of abuse under discussion here is exactly that - endemic to a particular religion and it originates from a certain geographical location. Unfortunately it has spread it's insidious tentacles to other parts of the world now and if we - both men and women - do not try our utmost to stem this hideous tide now, we will be overwhelmed in a very short time. And that is a very scary fact. You are a man, can we count on you????
