Islam is a cult and one aspect of the Muslim cult, which is prevalent in many other cult groups, is sanctifying for the leadership and the male faithful, the unbridled lust for, and use of, female bodies. Sexual relief is a prime plank of the male dominated Muslim cult. I will never understand how a woman willfully and consciousness join and submit herself to the El-Lah cult of sexual deviancy. The moon cult of Mecca is completely unfriendly and even hostile to women and we find this hostility expressed in Sharia Law and Koranic ritual. Indeed Sharia is the opposite of what we have created in the West in over 2000 years of hard effort, bargaining, experience and evolution. The Christian emancipation of women, Justinian's Codex which simplified and amplified the Roman legal system including that of female rights and legal rights; and the English Common Law development which also defended women's natural law rights; grew out of completely different cultural and socio-political factors, which have absolutely no corollary within Islam. It is preposterous to assert that pagan Arab Fascism, in which women, infidels, slaves, and non-Muslims are treated as barnyard animals, has any connection to Western jurisprudence or is 'fair' and 'just' to women. It isn't.
One of the mainsprings of Muslim imperialism and the spread of the cult which attracted untutored and rough hooligans was the Koranic fact that women were inferior to men, that sex slavery was expected and protected; and that a woman was merely a beast whose fields were to be ploughed, to quote Mohammed. He also said that women were stupid and beast-like [Bukhari (6:301) - "[Muhammad] said, 'Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?' They replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'"] The Muslim animus towards the female runs long deep, and is a profound aspect of Islamic imperialism and cult behavior.
We see this in the Koran. The sample of 12 verses and 1 entire Sura below, clearly depict women as inferiors and tools. These verses are supported by 14 Hadiths which confirm that women are to be subjugated by men, and to obey men [Muslim men that is].
Assessing women to be pure enough for the cult:
Sura 60 is an entire chapter devoted to women who apparently fled to Mohammed to take up the cause of Allah. These females had to be devout in their worship to the moon idol and were means tested for such. This Sura outlines how you 'investigate' the woman to make sure she is good enough for the cult. Only females dedicated to Mohammed and his cult of Allah were allowed to join Muslim society.
Qur'an (2:228) - "and the men are a degree above them [women]"
Qur'an (24:31) - Women are to lower their gaze around men.
Only Men are Gods
Qur'an (53:27) - "Those who believe not in the Hereafter, name the angels with female names." Angels are identified in Sura 74 to be men including the 'Magnificent 19' or early companions of Mohammed. El-Lah or Al-i-lah is of course the chief male deity or 'God'. Women are not a part of the angelic hordes.
Qur'an (2:282) - (Court testimony) "And call to witness, from among your men, two witnesses. And if two men be not found then a man and two women." This clearly states that women possess half the legal status of a man.
Women are unclean
Qur'an (5:6) - "And if ye are unclean, purify yourselves. And if ye are sick or on a journey, or one of you cometh from the closet, or ye have had contact with women, and ye find not water, then go to clean, high ground and rub your faces and your hands with some of it" After a man has some contact with a female he must wash himself, to purify himself, and erase that contact. This is why you might see Muslim men refusing to shake hands with Kufar women for example. They don't want to sully their perfect selves.
Plough your wives
Qur'an (2:223) - "Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will..." The wife is a sex tool to be used at will by the man. Some believe that this verse is also referencing the joys of anal intercourse, which it has been used historically to justify. If this is what Muhammad meant, however, then it would appear to contradict what he said in Muslim (8:3365).
Qur'an (4:3) - "Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four"
Sex slaves are good
I should add to the above the Muslim and Islamic laws related to marriage and contractual sex which can be found here. There are quite a few verses and Hadiths which regulate sex and marriage in Islam. Both of these concepts – sex and marriage -- do not mean the same as in Muslim society as they do in Western society. For example, the idea of marriage in Islam is not a sacrament, but a private contract (nikah) in which the man dominates. Under classical Shari’ah doctrine, it is considered an agreement between two families where the woman’s opinion holds no sway. This is why cousin marriages are so common in much of Islam between an older man and a younger woman. They are pre-feudal forms of 'getting rid of the girl' and her pecuniary burden on the family, and perhaps to solidify the cult, or the tribe by having her married and producing children whilst young.
Muslims can't argue their way out of the facts of their theology. Women are not venerated in the Koran. There is not one single verse in the Koran, or the Hadiths which describe a woman as a human being, equal to a man; intelligent, caring, riven by doubt, afflictions and perhaps even evil intentions; but nonetheless a thinking, cognitive, loving, redolent human character. Nowhere does the complicated human nature of a woman, with its attendant glories and potential, make an appearance in either the Koran or the Hadiths. The Koran is misogynistic, sexually obsessed and defamatory towards and with the female species.
Hypocritically of course Mohammed ordered Arabian and Muslim women to cover themselves and hide their feminine qualities and allures, though there is disagreement about how much 'covering' is appropriate [the Koran says covering the breasts is mandatory 24:31]. In any event Muslim and Arab men viewed and still largely view women as objects rather than people. If a woman exposes skin she is asking for sexual attention. Today in Islam if a women is raped she must produce 2-4 male witnesses to support her [2:282]. If she can't she is guilty and punished. In Mohammedan Arabia as throughout the Arab world today, rape was common and sexual impropriety legion. Mohammed the political leader wanted social stability and covering up women, to denote them as taken, or to be shapeless, formless beasts was a drastic and quite misogynistic action.
On the other hand, the hypocritical founder of Islam of course had at least 12 sex slaves; sex with a 9 year old girl [this was not an uncommon act in Arabia, men had sex with young girls as soon as they menstruated]; 4 wives [3 at one time]; and numerous revelations from his alter-ego named Allah, which allowed him to transgress social norms and have sex with whomever he pleased [including his son's wife]. This hypocrisy is also endemic within Islam. Cover up your women, but enjoy their fruits through polygamy, rape, and El-Lah's tender 'revelations' which make women – any woman - the property and chattel of the male Muslim.
