Advisor to Nobel-award winning POTUS says shari’a law “gender justice” for women

posted at 8:48 am on October 9, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize on a nomination submitted ten whole days into his term of office in part due to his effort in “easing American conflicts with Muslim nations.”  Helming that effort is Dalia Mogahed, Obama’s advisor on Muslim affairs, who gave British television viewers a taste of how Obama won the Nobel.  She explained that the oppressive shari’a law that results in stonings, mainly for women, is actually “gender justice”, which might be news to women’s-rights groups around the world:

President Barack Obama’s adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.

Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President’s Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was “oversimplified” and the majority of women around the world associate it with “gender justice”.

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party. …

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular “man-made law” and the West’s “lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism”.

They called for Sharia Law to be “the source of legislation” and said that women should not be “permitted to hold a position of leadership in government”.

Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that “promiscuity” and the “breakdown of traditional values” were what Muslims admired least about the West.

Gender justice?  Under shari’a, a woman’s testimony in court only counts for half of that of a man.  If a woman is raped, she needs four male witnesses to prove her case.  If she makes the accusation and doesn’t find four witnesses, the victim gets charged with fornication or adultery and faces death.

Under what definition of “gender justice” does that fall?  The laws of shari’a deliberately make women chattel to their husbands, fathers, or brothers.  Its application keeps women in some countries from being allowed to venture out in public on their own, without an adult male family member to accompany them.

Instead of defending the rights of women and secular application of law, which is the basis of our law, the advisor of the President of the United States fails to answer a demand for the imposition of an extreme religious code on free people. Mogahed also never rebutted the notion that women should not hold public office, which directly challenged her own status, but also insulted many women in American public life in both parties.  I wonder what Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton think about that performance.

If that’s the kind of outreach that wins Nobel Peace prizes, then the Norwegians must value the oppression of women in Muslim countries and the Western nations that appease that oppression.

Update: Apologies to all Swedes.  I know it’s Norwegians that hand out the award, but for some reason I wrote “Swedes”.  Coffee deficiency.

I’m a chick that does not get offended much, but having this woman as an advisor, in any capacity, to my US president is offensive.

Slight correction; it’s the Norwegians that decided that having women be worth less than half of men is worthy of the Nobel Piec…er, Peace Prize.

“His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population,”

the majority of women around the world associate it with “gender justice”.

It’s too early in the morning for me to add these up.

A handy reference guide to women’s rights:

If it’s Islam that oppresses women, it’s cool and you’re a xenophobe if you disagree.

If it’s fundamentalist Christianity or Mormonism that teaches that a man is the head of the family, it’s bad.

Sorry Ed. Doesn’t matter. The leftist websites are orgasming today about how the world LOVES Obama and that this just proves what a great man he is because he SAYS wonderful things about peace. Doesn’t do them, but that’s not important.

Sharia law? Heck Obama’s not going to implement that. We have separatation of Church and State dontcha know. Obama’s just being open minded about different views. Isn’t he intelligent? And women DO have more respect under Sharia law. They know EXACTLY what is demanded of them. So they can never go wrong. There’s no mamby pamby guessing or anything like that. It’s all laid out in black and white what a woman’s value to a man is. Do you people of the book have that written down anywhere? No? Well then, that just goes to show how wrong you are. Because, as Obama has said… the Constitution is bad because it doesn’t say what HAS to be done, it just says what CAN’T be done.

A negative Constitution.
We need… a positive one.

And in Obama’s Bizarro world… that’s what we’re trying to get…

It’s “gender justice” in the same way that keeping the poor impoverished and enslaved to the whims of the State is “social justice”. Perfect terminology.

November 16, 1999

Taliban Executes Woman in a Sports Stadium

The Taliban militia in Afghanistan shot and killed a woman as she was “cowering beneath a pale blue all-enveloping burqa,” yesterday in what they described as the first “public” (the woman was shot in the center of a sports stadium) execution of a woman in Kabul since the Taliban took control of the city three years ago.

The woman had been found guilty of beating her husband to death.

Since seizing control of Kabul in 1996, the Taliban has imposed a strict system of gender apartheid against all women living in areas controlled by the Taliban. The Taliban’s edicts, which have been brutally enforced, banish most women from the work force, closed schools to girls and expelled women from universities. Other Taliban policies include beating any woman who is caught in public without a close male relative as chaperone or who fails to adequately cover her skin; stoning to death anyone who is suspected of adultery; and publicly amputating limbs of thieves.

Stop Gender Apartheid in Afghanistan!

Drive through any little village in Afghanistan. Take notice of what you see on the street. There will be men, outfitted in clean man jammies, smoking and joking around, doing nothing in particular. Absent from your view? Yes, women. To see them, look to the fields, look to the open windows. You may catch a glimpse of one of them—what’s she doing? She’s working her tail off. I’ve seen the hands of 30 year old women in Afghanistan, they look like the hands of s 65 year old bricklayer…rough, calloused, arthritic, scarred and heavily tanned. Tan you say? Yes, tan, from the wrists down. It’s unlikely the rest of her skin has ever seen the sun.

Feminists in this country have no idea the plight of Muslim women. They are essentially voiceless out there. Who shall stand up for them?

When people are going to Sharia Courts and Sharia Banks here in the USA, maybe then eyes will be opened. Anyone who thinks that the goal of Islam is anything other than world domination is naive. That’s not to say Islam should be feared, but when we continually ignore the true goal, when end up with advisors to the President of the United States of America saying things like Sharia law really isn’t that bad. The American People have been asleep for a while now, and hopefully we’ll all wake up soon.

Meanwhile, in the real world, women and young girls are still sold into slavery, kept locked up, have no say in many of the same countries Obama seems to love, and shariah is coming to a city, county, state near you.

N.O.W. didn’t say that?

Don’t really ‘get’ Muslim women, especially after listening to this one. Maybe it’s just that they are so used to being semi-doormats that it’s like the sock on the mantle piece…after a while you just don’t notice it unless someone takes it away. Perhaps they are afraid to have to take charge of their own lives? After all, they have little or no practice, it must be somewhat scarey to contemplate.

Jeff from WI on October 9, 2009 at 9:23 AM

Yeah, she should be thrown under the bus, but let’s not pretend that she’s “the advisor of the President of the United States” on Muslim affairs. She is one of 25 members with a one-year appointment to an obscure counsel charged with:

* The Office’s top priority will be making community groups an integral part of our economic recovery and poverty a burden fewer have to bear when recovery is complete.
* It will be one voice among several in the administration that will look at how we support women and children, address teenage pregnancy, and reduce the need for abortion.
* The Office will strive to support fathers who stand by their families, which involves working to get young men off the streets and into well-paying jobs, and encouraging responsible fatherhood.
* Finally, beyond American shores this Office will work with the National Security Council to foster interfaith dialogue with leaders and scholars around the world.

So, she’s really a powerless nobody who should, nonetheless, be fired.

Sharia law is, literally, evil.

It is the polar opposite of Western values in general, and the US Constitution in particular. Not just for treating woman as chattel property, every aspect of it is just as offensive, such as legalizing pedophilia.

That an 0bama official is pushing for evil, is no surprise to me.

After I got the girl out the door to school I went back upstairs and my wife kinda lifted her head from her pillow and said “it’s too soon to give Obama the Peace Prize” and I literally thought she’d had some kind of weird dream that she was just coming out of because it never occurred to me that he would be awarded it.

Probably a small net positive for Obama and the U.S. — I mean good PR is good PR — probably have no effect on peace itself and probably a negative for the Nobel Committee who now look like teenage girls at a Jonas Brothers concert or (I can’t help myself) Bill Kristol and Mike Lowry at a Palin book signing.
