In a recent piece in the Daily Mail, a Muslim woman, Sofia Hayat, discusses a brutal and oppressive upbringing by her parents, which included imprisonment in a cellar and ended in death threats â€“ because Sofia longed to be free.
This brings to mind the battle we are in at the moment with Naomi Wolf, a supposed feminist who should be standing up for persecuted Muslim women but, instead, has reached her hand out in solidarity to their oppressors. This is understandable, of course, because as a leftist, Wolf cannot be honest about the tyranny of an adversarial culture. If she was honest, she would have to accept that Western values in general and American values in particular are something she should be proud of and defend. She would have to concede that America has something to teach other cultures â€“ such as those within Islam where women are persecuted with cruel barbarity. This is unthinkable to her, because then she would have to shed her false personal identity and face banishment from her own leftist community — which allows no divergence of thought. David Horowitzâ€™s recent NewsReal blog sheds profound light on why leftists like Naomi Wolf cannot accept the truth about the monstrosity of the enemies of freedom.
There are millions of Sofia Hayats in our world, suffering under the vicious and barbaric structures of Islamic gender apartheid. This latest tale spoken by Sofia Hayat is heartbreaking. It will be interesting to see how many leftist and feminist authors, sites and journals, which see themselves as womenâ€™s rights champions, will be outraged by her story and will denounce, with moral indignation, the theological and cultural ingredients of Islam that engendered her oppression and almost took her life.
