The shameless phenomenon of Western leftist feminists abandoning millions of persecuted Muslim women under Islamic gender apartheid continues.
Never mind that Muslim women in most cases do not have a choice of whether or not to cover themselves, and face bodily harm and death if they do not veil. How much, one wonders, does Wolf care about Aqsa Parvez, a 16-year-old Muslim girl who was murdered by her father for refusing to wear the veil? Does Wolf think that honor murder is sexy too? Does it warm Wolf’s heart that Aqsa’s grave remains unmarked because her family is doing its best to erase all remnants of her 16-year existence on earth?
The David Horowitz Freedom Center has powerfully exposed leftist feminists’ lack of attention to women’s rights in the Muslim world
It is, of course, very clear why leftist feminists would ally themselves with the persecutors and mutilators of Muslim women. It makes total sense that they would reach out in solidarity to misogynist monsters who enforce the veiling of women.
Leftist feminists have long sought to prevent men from appreciating women’s physical beauty. Labeling this appreciation the “objectification” and “exploitation” of the female body, these feminists have tried to prevent women from using their beauty and sexuality as they themselves see fit. Just as fellow travelers such as Orville Schell, Claudie Broyelle, and Shirley MacLaine were enchanted with the enforced Maoist dress that attempted to desexualize Chinese citizens, so the new generation of leftist believers and feminists genuflects before the Islamist burqa. The burqa, like the Maoist uniform, further attracts them by virtue of the fact that women in Islamist societies have no say in whether or not they will wear it. Longing to submerge themselves in a totality where their own choices will be negated, these leftist believers, like Wolf, are always drawn to a totalitarian ethos that forbids freedom of conscience.
Wolf is now in great company with Dr. Unni Wikan, a professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo. Wikan’s solution for the high incidence of Muslims raping Norwegian women (who are committing the crime of being unveiled) stresses neither punishment of the perpetrators nor repudiation of the Islamic theology that legitimizes such abuse of women. Rather, Wikan instructs Norwegian women to veil themselves. “Norwegian women must understand that we live in a Multicultural society,” she states ” and adapt themselves to it.”
Question to Wolf, Wikan and the rest of their leftist feminist flock: Have you no sense of shame, at long last?
