Women and Sharia

posted by Suzy Shuraym

“No group is more harmed by sharia than Muslim women — a reflection in part of the patriarchal tribal culture out of which Islamic law emerged.”

Admittedly, the writer is Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a controversial figure in Islam.

posted by Suzy Shuraym

“The recent vandalization of Nimrud and Hatra by the so-called Islamic State—and the destruction of lesser shrines in Libya by local Islamists, which started in 2012—is not an isolated phenomenon. It stems from deep-seated pathologies afflicting the Muslim world,” writes Ann Marlowe in The Daily Beast.

“It is of course the Muslim world that has the most to gain from preserving its heritage. Ironically, if ISIS succeeds in its nihilistic goals, it will destroy the evidence of Muslim artistic achievements,” she concludes.
