Islam - reformation through its women?

Can Islam be reformed through its women? Difficult to say but possible? Do Muslim women want reform or are they comfortable with their role? The question arises from a comment made by a fellow blogger - Steve Harkonnen - some time ago in which he stated that only Muslim women can reform Islam. For me, the question has gained a resurgence due to a sentence in the book, Genghis Khan by Jack Weatherford. If Weatherford is correct, I paraphrase here, the honor of Muslim men is tied directly to their ability to control the sexuality of "their" women. Female mutilation; honor killings in which the rape victim is killed and the rapists go free; little or no education (how many of the 15,000 Saudis who flooded our universities in 2006-2007 to the glee of our State Department were women); little or no role in public office; Taliban-like tyranny; arranged marriages - okay for the men because they can have more than one wife. My intent here is not to present an exhaustive list but let's throw in the enslavement through the burqa as one outward manifestation of humiliation. We can keep Freud out of it but the egocentricity of the adolescent comes to mind when considering the absolute dominance of Muslim men over the women who are born into Islam. Through Islam, 50% of the brain-power of the collective is negated. The sexual represssion of the men, not counting the rapists what with rape being a crime of rage, also plays into the mix. I wonder how much more harm flooding our universities with young Muslim men does to indigenous Muslim women back home and how much harm bombarding these young Muslim men with the technology and the perceived decadence of the West - which they revel in by the way -does when contrasted to the primitive lifestyles in much of the Middle East. The question is can Islam be reformed before the eventual clash that is being pushed by Islam's "leaders"? By Muslim women? Or is it just not worth the effort? I am reminded also that American women in abusive relationships find it very difficult to leave the battering situation they know for the unknown of liberation.

While some few examples exist of women risking it all for the hope of freedom I fear that Muslim women in the abstract majority won't risk it. When the immediate lives of their children out put in harms way it is hard to imagine that Muslim women can unite.

Women don't stand a chance. Male trade Unionists (along with any remaining Christians and Jews) are among the most persecuted sections of society in Islamic countries . The vicious, elitist, sadistic and depraved Ulema - the Muslim priesthood - regard Trades Union organisers as much a threat to their power as the kaffirs and apostates.

Check out Working Class Trades Union rights in such Islamic paradises as Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan

So why do Labour politicians and the Trades Union bosses ally themselves with such an oppressive, supremacist ideology as Islam?

Why do leaders like Gordon Brownlips kiss Muslim arse? Aren't these champions of the common man betraying their British Christian Socialist working-class heritage?

Well actually, no. Their heritage is neither British, nor Christian, nor socialist except in the Stalinist sense. And it certainly isn't working class.

It is very true that the original Labour movement owes far more to Methodism than Marxism, to the Sermon on the Mount than Das Kapital. It was a strong Christian faith that nurtured the Tolpuddle Martyrs in their struggle for workers' rights in the face of the bosses' wage cuts to below starvation level. "Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, the labourer is worthy of his reward."

The early history of Trades Unionism in Australia was also inspired by Christianity.

But all that has changed . Since the 1980's, the leadership of the trades union movement and Labour party have been hijacked by European-inspired atheist Marxist functionaries, many of whom have never done a productive day's work in their lives. The career path from University Social Studies department to Westminster or Congress House , with no intervening gainful employment, is all too common .

To paraphrase Gibbon: To the gullible all religions are equally true, to the skeptical all religions are equally false, and to the politicians all religions are equally useful.

So is it any wonder that Marxist Labour neglect and indeed despise the real British working class? With their rapidly multiplying new-found Muslim friends, they have people who share many of their objectives - an unquestionable totalitarian social system, destruction of free expression, control of all aspects of life, and an unnaccountable, undemocratic superstate (Caliphate/EU) . Of course push will eventually come to shove and the Marxists and Muslims will some day be at one anothers' throats in a bloody continent-wide civil war, but by that time most of the rest of us will long since have been
airbrushed out of Orwellian history.
