UN Report: An Astounding 99.3% Of Egyptian Women Have Experienced Harassment (And It’s Getting Worse)


This couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the religion that treats women as hell-bound, sin-inducing, intellectually deficient, inferior, little-more-than-a-man’s-possession and deserving-of-a-good-beat-down-when-disobedient, could it? …

Daniel 11:37a, “Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women …”

The worst sin and distraction from virtue that I have left for man is woman” – Prophet of Islam, Mohammed, Sahih AlBukhari, 5096

“When I stood on the door of hell, I saw most of its inhabitants were women” – Prophet of Islam, Mohammed, Sahih AlBukhari, 5196

Qur’an Sura 4:34, “Men have authority over women because [Allah] has made the one superior to the other… Good women are obedient… As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them. Then if they obey you, take no further action against them…”

ByAleem Maqbool, BBC News – “A recent UN survey suggested an astounding 99.3% of Egyptian women had experienced harassment of one form or another. Sixty percent of those asked said they had been touched inappropriately.

Of course, the problems started within Egyptian society long before the 2011 revolution that ousted Hosni Mubarak, but they do appear to be worsening.

And just when the issue of sexual harassment needs decisive action, Egypt’s Information Minister Salah Abdul Maksoud has caused outrage by making remarks to a female reporter that appear highly derogatory, though the minister himself is unrepentant.

‘In the news conference, I asked him: ‘Where is media freedom?” says the journalist involved, Nada Mohamed.

‘He said to me: ‘Come here and I’ll show you.’ Then he laughed,’ she says. ‘This was clear harassment. I was shocked.’

As it happens, Ms Mohamed’s parents both accompanied her to the news conference.

‘We went with Nada because things are so bad these days with security for girls, I don’t want to leave her alone,’ says her father, Mohamed. ‘I call her 10 times a day if I am not with her, I am so worried.’

‘Then the minister said what he did and I was so angry, but it was not the place to start shouting. But I am happy other people have responded.'” Read more.

Flashback: Egypt: Muslim Preacher Says Raping Women In Tahrir Square Is Justified, ‘They Want To Be Raped’ – “An Egyptian Salafi preacher said raping and sexually harassing women protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square is justified, calling them ‘crusaders’ who ‘have no shame, no fear and not even feminism.’ In an online video posted Wednesday, Ahmad Mahmoud Abdullah, known as ‘Abu Islam’ and owner of the private television channel of ‘al-Ummah,’ said these women are no red line… Abu Islam added that these women activists are going to Tahrir Square not to protest but to be sexually abused because they had wanted to be raped.” Read more.

Flashback: Muslim Brotherhood ‘Paying Gangs To Go Out And Rape Women And Beat Men Protesting’ Against Morsi – “Egypt’s ruling party is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square against President Mohamed Morsi, activists said. They also said the Muslim Brotherhood is paying gangs to beat up men who are taking part in the latest round of protests, which followed a decree by President Morsi to give himself sweeping new powers.” Read more.

Flashback: Egypt: Girls Sexually Harassed ’7 Times Every 200 Meters’, Well Over Two-Thirds Of All Women Harassed Daily – “As the new school year begins next week in Egypt, school girls and their families are preparing to face yet another year of sexual harassment, this time waiting for the children outside their schools. Egyptian mothers worry about their young daughters, who are subjected to sexual harassment outside their gated schools and daughters only pray to go home safely after the day has ended. The phenomena of men waiting outside girls only schools to sneak a view, harass and self-expose themselves has made even school a difficult trip to take on a daily basis.” Read more.

    Which religion are you talking about? The United States Air Force Academy is pretty much a reactionary Christian religious seminary. The Air Force anti-harassment officer just got fired for sexual harassment. He is a “devout” Christian. He is a typical religious person with power.

    rp518dan – what’s your point? Islam’s bad ideas do not justify Chrstianity bad ideas – both are bad. It is not one or the other.
    The idea of following an old book and believe in super natural force that is invisible and non present and base any moral law on this false idea – this is the problem. Call it Judaism, Islam, Chrsitianity, Hindusim, it doesn’t matter.
