NYC Muslima Activist Blows a Gasket……Again!

IMona Eltahawy tatsf you travel the social media networks you might have noticed that there are plenty of Muslims on it who fancy themselves as “human rights” activists. But in reality they are supporting what is a disgrace to humanity. Islam.

Today we will take a look at NY’s Mona Elthaway. A Muslim who supposedly fights for the rights of females, but in the end shoots herself in the foot by remaining a member of the ummah (Muslim community).

Back in 2014 she had debate with the UK’s Muslim propagandist Medhi Hassan, on the rights of females in the Arab world.

Part one
Excerpt: (Al Jazeera)

Mehdi Hasan (VO): How bad is life for women in the Arab world? There’s no doubt the region is far from being a model of gender equality. But are critics too eager to brand Arab women as helpless victims? My guest tonight sparked outrage when she wrote an article saying the root of the problem is that Arab men hate women.

I’m Mehdi Hasan and I’ve come here to the Oxford Union to go head to head with journalist, activist, feminist Mona Eltahawy, and challenge her on whether her rhetoric is helping or hurting the cause of women’s rights in the Middle East.

Tonight I’ll be joined by a panel of three experts at the Oxford Union chamber: Dr Aitemad Muhanna from the London School of Economics Middle Eastern Centre; and Taj Hargey, a progressive imam based in Oxford and Dr Shuruq Naguib, who teaches Islamic and Gender Studies at Lancaster University.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mona Eltahawy.

Mehdi Hasan (VO): A committed feminist for over 20 years, she’s perhaps the most provocative voice out there on the issue of misogyny and the Middle East.

Mehdi Hasan: Thanks for coming.

Mona Eltahawy: Hi, hi everyone.

Mehdi Hasan: Mona, is your view that there is a war being waged on women in the Arab world?

Mona Eltahawy: Absolutely, Mehdi. I mean when 12-year-old girls are dying giving childbirth in Yemen, when 91 percent of Egyptian girls and women have had their genitals mutilated, when 16-year-old girls in Morocco are forced to marry their rapists so that their rapist can escape conviction, that is nothing short of a war.

While she is correct about the horrors for females in that region, she never gets to the root of the problem which is Islam itself. Because it is a fact that Islam allows child marriage.

Koran 65:4: Speaks of the iddah or waiting period a divorced or widowed Muslima has to wait until they can remarry.

{ وَٱللاَّئِي يَئِسْنَ مِنَ ٱلْمَحِيضِ مِن نِّسَآئِكُمْ إِنِ ٱرْتَبْتُمْ فَعِدَّتُهُنَّ ثَلاَثَةُ أَشْهُرٍ وَٱللاَّئِي لَمْ يَحِضْنَ وَأُوْلاَتُ ٱلأَحْمَالِ أَجَلُهُنَّ أَن يَضَعْنَ حَمْلَهُنَّ وَمَن يَتَّقِ ٱللَّهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مِنْ أَمْرِهِ يُسْراً }

And [as for] those of your women who (read allā’ī or allā’i in both instances) no longer expect to menstruate, if you have any doubts, about their waiting period, their prescribed [waiting] period shall be three months, and [also for] those who have not yet menstruated, because of their young age, their period shall [also] be three months — both cases apply to other than those whose spouses have died; for these [latter] their period is prescribed in the verse: they shall wait by themselves for four months and ten [days] [Q. 2:234]. And those who are pregnant, their term, the conclusion of their prescribed [waiting] period if divorced or if their spouses be dead, shall be when they deliver. And whoever fears God, He will make matters ease for him, in this world and in the Hereafter.

Koran 4:24: The taking of sex slaves.

{ وَٱلْمُحْصَنَٰتُ مِنَ ٱلنِّسَآءِ إِلاَّ مَا مَلَكْتَ أَيْمَٰنُكُمْ كِتَٰبَ ٱللَّهِ عَلَيْكُمْ وَأُحِلَّ لَكُمْ مَّا وَرَاءَ ذَٰلِكُمْ أَن تَبْتَغُواْ بِأَمْوَٰلِكُمْ مُّحْصِنِينَ غَيْرَ مُسَٰفِحِينَ فَمَا ٱسْتَمْتَعْتُمْ بِهِ مِنْهُنَّ فَآتُوهُنَّ أُجُورَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً وَلاَ جُنَاحَ عَلَيْكُمْ فِيمَا تَرَٰضَيْتُمْ بِهِ مِن بَعْدِ ٱلْفَرِيضَةِ إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيماً حَكِيماً }

And, forbidden to you are, wedded women, those with spouses, that you should marry them before they have left their spouses, be they Muslim free women or not; save what your right hands own, of captured [slave] girls, whom you may have sexual intercourse with, even if they should have spouses among the enemy camp, but only after they have been absolved of the possibility of pregnancy [after the completion of one menstrual cycle]; this is what God has prescribed for you (kitāba is in the accusative because it is the verbal noun). Lawful for you (read passive wa-uhilla, or active wa-ahalla), beyond all that, that is, except what He has forbidden you of women, is that you seek, women, using your wealth, by way of a dowry or a price, in wedlock and not, fornicating, in illicitly. Such wives as you enjoy thereby, and have had sexual intercourse with, give them their wages, the dowries that you have assigned them, as an obligation; you are not at fault in agreeing together, you and they, after the obligation, is waived, decreased or increased. God is ever Knowing, of His creatures, Wise, in what He has ordained for them.

Koran 4:34: Male dominance over females.

{ ٱلرِّجَالُ قَوَّٰمُونَ عَلَى ٱلنِّسَآءِ بِمَا فَضَّلَ ٱللَّهُ بَعْضَهُمْ عَلَىٰ بَعْضٍ وَبِمَآ أَنْفَقُواْ مِنْ أَمْوَٰلِهِمْ فَٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتُ قَٰنِتَٰتٌ حَٰفِظَٰتٌ لِّلْغَيْبِ بِمَا حَفِظَ ٱللَّهُ وَٱلَّٰتِي تَخَافُونَ نُشُوزَهُنَّ فَعِظُوهُنَّ وَٱهْجُرُوهُنَّ فِي ٱلْمَضَاجِعِ وَٱضْرِبُوهُنَّ فَإِنْ أَطَعْنَكُمْ فَلاَ تَبْغُواْ عَلَيْهِنَّ سَبِيلاً إِنَّ ٱللَّهَ كَانَ عَلِيّاً كَبِيراً }

Men are in charge of, they have authority over, women, disciplining them and keeping them in check, because of that with which God has preferred the one over the other, that is, because God has given them the advantage over women, in knowledge, reason, authority and otherwise, and because of what they expend, on them [the women], of their property. Therefore righteous women, among them, are obedient, to their husbands, guarding in the unseen, that is, [guarding] their private parts and otherwise during their spouses’ absence, because of what God has guarded, for them, when He enjoined their male spouses to look after them well. And those you fear may be rebellious, disobedient to you, when such signs appear, admonish them, make them fear God, and share not beds with them, retire to other beds if they manifest such disobedience, and strike them, but not violently, if they refuse to desist [from their rebellion] after leaving them [in separate beds]. If they then obey you, in what is desired from them, do not seek a way against them, a reason to strike them unjustly. God is ever High, Great, so beware of Him, lest He punish you for treating them unjustly.}

Now there are only three possibilities happening here. She does not know Islam, is in complete denial about it, or is purposely misleading the public into believing that “Muslims” like her are going to magical transform Islam into a female friendly ideology. That is not going to happen.

Whatever the answer is, the bottom line is that she is helping perpetuate the distain Islam has for females. Because not only does not get to the root of the problem, she is insanely protective of Islam! Here is her response to me after I said that Christians who were speaking out against Islam were just exercising their right to free speech.

She was so mad she said twice, and she was not done there!

Mona 2

This is not the first time the so called “rights activist” has gone off the deep end in the defense of Islam. She is infamous for her marauding Muslim subway attack on NYC activist Pamela Hall, and Pamela Geller’s truthful subway ads.

Muslim activist, or maniac?

Hopefully her next stop will be….

    I find pathetic women like her to be one of the biggest problems getting the true message of Islam out there. How many times have we heard about the poor women (of Islam) that in reality perpetrate their own miserable existence! Muhammad stated that he saw Hell was full of women, women have to cover their hair so as not to entice men….really? I have watched many of those debates and get so frustrated as no-one ever really puts up a true challenge to Mehdi Hasan, they all back off! Lack of knowledge, fear? He does get that manic look in his eyes! Who knows? As for Mona Eltahawy, if she truly wanted emancipation for women in Islam she would admit that Islam is the problem and leave Islam’s vile ideology behind as an example of backbone! By being a Moslem she shows submission to Muhammad’s Islam! NS

      Very well said Debs! If people like her and Zuhdi Jasser would leave Islam, they would be great assets. Now, they are just huge parts of the problem.

    If her goal was to get folks to look more favorably on the followers of Islam… FAIL.
