Winchester, Mass: ‘Islam is Right About Women’ has been a topic on people’s mind and in conversation after someone put a number of leaflets on street signs and utility poles across the town of Winchester, Massachusetts, during the last week or so. Winchester is an upper class suburb of Boston.
Liberals and Islamophiles are outraged.
Local media reporters are baffled as to what the phrase ‘Islam is Right About Women.’ While the simple sentence would be easily understood by an elementary school fourth grader, people who work for the ‘consent manufacturing’ industry like newspapers and television and online media must pretend that they can not fathom what this message could possibly mean.
“This is hate speech,” one woman said to reporters.
“Hate speech” is an impossibly undefinable and elastic subject, as can be seen here. How is this “hate speech” in any conceivable fashion?
If an adherent of Islam put it up, he or she would strenuously object to that label, and maintain that Islam’s treatment of women was divinely-ordained justice. So if this is “hate speech,” then Islam is hateful, which I’m sure not a soul in the ‘manufacturing consent’ main stream media meant to imply.
Or are they afraid that the signs were put up by “Islamizationphobes”? If so, it’s an odd sort of “hate speech” to affirm what one opposes.
Anyway, is Islam right about women?
The Qur’an teaches that men are superior to women and should beat those from whom they “fear disobedience”: “Men have authority over women because Allah has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them.
Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because Allah has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” — Qur’an 4:34
The Qur’an likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth as you will” — Qur’an 2:223
It declares that a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man: “Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as you choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her” — Qur’an 2:282

It allows men to marry up to four wives, and have sex with slave girls also: “If you fear that you shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if you fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly, then only one, or one that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice” — Qur’an 4:3

It rules that a son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter: “Allah directs you as regards your children’s inheritance: to the male, a portion equal to that of two females” — Qur’an 4:11
It allows for marriage to pre-pubescent girls, stipulating that Islamic divorce procedures “shall apply to those who have not yet menstruated” — Qur’an 65:4
Also, a Muslim wife may not refuse sex. A hadith depicts Muhammad saying: “If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning” (Bukhari 4.54.460).
Mohamed said, “Most of the people in Hell will be women.”
And: “By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel’s saddle” (Ibn Majah 1854).
Islamic law stipulates: “The husband may forbid his wife to leave the home…because of the Reliance of the Traveller m10.4).
hadith related by Bayhaqi that the Prophet…said, ‘It is not permissible for a woman who believes in Allah and the Last Day to allow someone into her husband’s house if he is opposed, or to go out of it if he is averse” (

In the US the media has a theoretical right to free speech. But, there are many things that people in the American main stream media must not say, and they know that they can lose their jobs very easily no matter how popular or productive or intelligent they are.
In the US media one must praise Women’s Rights and praise Islam as a ‘Religion of Peace.’ Pointing out any of the things people who follow Islam believe, or what Islamic texts command Muslims to do is considered a crime against the Islamic Race. Somehow the set of religious beliefs one adopts when one converts, or is forced to convert, to Islam changes one’s race. So, fierce intellectual opposition to Islamic ideas about women is not considered ‘Feminism’ or ‘Women’s Liberation.’ Intellectual opposition to Islamic ideas is labelled ‘racism.’
How can one support equality for women in society and at home and also defend Islam is a problem easily solved. George Orwell called it ‘Doublethink.’ The ability to hold two conflicting ideas in ones head simultaneously with no problem and no debate. As one American Leftist writer explained almost a hundred years ago, “It’s hard to get someone to understand something when their job depends on them not understanding the idea.”
The word ‘Islam’ means ‘submit.’
