Left-wingers consider reports of mutilated Muslim women, and the high suicide rate among women in Islamic countries, problematic. Since the U.S. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, Americans have been exposed to certain facts the left wants hidden–Islam allows mutilation of women.

Reports of Islam’s abuse and oppression of women is making Americans take a stand against Islam’s radicalism, as well as mosque building in America, and this has the Islam-supporting Left up in arms.

The Left, which marches emphatically for women’s rights (while ignoring honor killings of Muslim women in America), wants Islamic abuse of women—causing high rates of suicide in Islamic countries—ignored, or better yet, viewed as depression caused by mental illness.

Judy Mandelbaum of Salon.com decries the recent Time Magazine cover showing a mutilated Afghan woman, snidely asking if the next Time cover “will show photos of suicidal Muslim women killing themselves.”

Maybe Time should since, according to Mandelbaum, Afghan President Hamid Karzai reports “some 23,000 women and girls are trying to kill themselves each year” in his country alone.

Mandelbaum feels the Time cover is simply a political ploy.  She complains:

if Time’s editor Richard Stengal wanted to show us what is really happening, why didn’t he run images of Taliban leaders receiving bribe money that came from the United States?  Why not show pictures of President Hamid Karzai’s political machine stealing the most recent election?   Why not show the heroin crop our military has been ordered not to destroy?  Let’s see the innocent women and children that we have maimed and killed in the course of pursuing a war that weakens our nation’s security and is counter to our best interests.

Let’s ignore the truth for leftist political propaganda.

What about reports stating Muslim women are fighting Islamic customs for an autonomous western-style life?  Islamic women are divorcing abusive husbands, because they face honor killings and mutilations by husbands, fathers, and brothers, for wanting to be educated and liberated.

Afghans say:

[O]ur society is not as open.  It’s impossible for a girl here to have the same life as an Iranian girl and this creates a lot of problems inside these families.

Afghan doctors report:

Since the fall of the Taliban regime, self-immolation has become a well established phenomenon in Herat, with women and girls pouring petrol over themselves in acts of protest and despair arising from family disputes…This, added to a growing awareness about basic human rights and the sudden influx of foreign music, television and fashion that accompanied the US-led invasion in 2001, has caused huge ruptures in the traditional fabric of society.
