Less Freedom For Muslim Women in Britain

AN INFLUENCIAL group of Muslims in Great Britain have been pushing for concessions to Islam, and getting them, to the detriment of women.

Women’s rights campaigner Yasmin Rehman said: "We Muslims have been a part of the UK for many, many years but the generations before me did not feel the need for or call for segregation in the way that is being demanded now.

"At the beginning of my career as a women’s rights advocate there was no need to apply for a certificate of Khula in divorce cases. Muslim women are now being told that divorces under the English legal system are not valued or recognised without a certificate of Khula – and should they remarry without this they will be committing Zina – a 'crime' punishable by death in many Muslim countries. This is not a view shared by all Islamic scholars but a view that is being pushed through the Islamic councils and tribunals across the UK."

The standard penalty in Islam for converting out of Islam is death.

If you live in a Western democracy, you may be able to get away with converting out of it without being a victim of an "honor" killing, but you may be ostracized from your community.

Much of the work Ayaan Hirsi Ali was doing in the Netherlands before she became a member of Parliament was educating immigrant Muslim women about their rights in their new country. They live in all-Muslim enclaves in many parts of Europe, and the women are isolated from the surrounding culture and don't know all the freedoms they have in their new country.

The laws and cultures of the country you live in should be acceoted. If you are not happy with it, leave.
This applies to all residents.
I am tired of other cultures wanting more again and again. First you must give and my experience is Muslims take take take. They are the most selfish people alive

Setting Precedents

As Robert Spencer put it: "...it's a small accommodation in itself, but it reinforces the precedent that American practices must give way to Muslim ones whenever they clash. Once that precedent is set, it does indeed lead to the Islamization of American society, unless at a certain point non-Muslims are willing to draw the line and say 'Thus far, but no farther. No more accommodation of Muslim demands.' That line will never be drawn, however, as long as Americans continue to fail to see the larger implications and inevitable outcome of these individual incidents."
