Together women accomplish amazing things. Google supports #LeanInTogether? Muslims kill Christian girl: “Christian girls are only meant for one thing: the pleasure of Muslim men?
Kiran was killed in Pakistan, but we have already heard a variation on the idea that “Christians girls are only meant for one thing: the pleasure of Muslim men” in Europe: “German girls are just there for sex.” Muslim men committed mass rapes and sex assaults all over Europe on New Year’s Eve, operating in line with the Qur’an’s allowance for men to take Infidel women as sex slaves (4:3; 4:24; 23:1-6; 33:50). How long will it be before Muslim men in Europe and the U.S. begin to kill those women and girls who resist them? https://www.jihadwatch.org/2016/01/muslims-kill-christian-girl-christian-girls-are-only-meant-for-one-thing-the-pleasure-of-muslim-men
Together women accomplish amazing things. Google supports #LeanInTogether? Islamic State stones five women to death for not wearing the veil?
Our moral superiors are very concerned about the right of Muslim women in Western countries to cover their heads. Barack Obama has affirmed this: “Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state in our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That’s why the United States government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab and to punish those who would deny it.” — Obama, Cairo, June 4, 2009
But what about the right of women and girls not to wear the hijab or any other head covering, and to go out with faces unveiled? Who is speaking up for the rights of Aqsa Parvez, whose Muslim father choked her to death with her hijab after she refused to wear it; and of Amina Muse Ali, a Christian woman in Somalia whom Muslims murdered because she wasn’t wearing a hijab; and of the 40 women who were murdered in Iraq in 2007 for not wearing the hijab; and of Alya Al-Safar, whose Muslim cousin threatened to kill her and harm her family because she stopped wearing the hijab in Britain; and of Amira Osman Hamid, who faces whipping in Sudan for refusing to wear the hijab; and of the Egyptian girl, also named Amira, who committed suicide after being brutalized for her family for refusing to wear the hijab; and of the Muslim and non-Muslim teachers at the Islamic College of South Australia who were told that they had to wear the hijab or be fired; and of the women in Chechnya whom police shot with paintballs because they weren’t wearing hijab; and of the women also in Chechnya who were threatened by men with automatic rifles for not wearing hijab; and of the elementary school teachers in Tunisia who were threatened with death for not wearing hijab; and of the Syrian schoolgirls who were forbidden to go to school unless they wore hijab; and of the women in Gaza whom Hamas has forced to wear hijab; and of the women in Iran who protested against the regime by daring to take off their legally-required hijab; and of the women in London whom Muslim thugs threatened to murder if they didn’t wear hijab; and of the anonymous young Muslim woman who doffed her hijab outside her home and started living a double life in fear of her parents, and all the other women and girls who have been killed or threatened, or who live in fear for daring not to wear the hijab.
When will anyone stand in solidarity with them? Women who don’t wear hijab in Muslim countries are far more likely to be victims of violence than hijabis in the West. Who speaks for them?
“ISIS stones five women to death for not wearing the veil, says Mamouzini,” by Abdelhak Mamoun, Iraqi News, August 18, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

What does Islam teach about the crucifixion of Isa al Masih (Jesus)? Muslims dispute the fact of Jesus' crucifixion?
The essential difference
Historic Christianity contends that Jesuswas crucified, dead, and buried outside ofJerusalem during the thirty-third year of His life. Christians contend that there is Biblical and historical evidence for the crucifixion, and that it was significant theologically in providing an atonement for the sins of all who would/will believe.
Muslims dispute the fact of Jesus' crucifixion, arguing that Allah would never have dishonored His prophet by allowing Him to undergo such a death. Muslims believe that Jesus was miraculously caught up intoheaven and that someone (perhaps Judas Iscariot) surreptitiously took His place on the cross.
Does it really matter?
The historical reality of Jesus' crucifixion is an essential doctrine of the Christian faith. Without the crucifixion the resurrection becomes irrelevant, and without the resurrection Christianity itself is rendered meaningless, i.e. I Corinthians 15:14 "and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain."
Does the Qur'an actually contend that Jesus was not crucified?
Is it possible that this is really a case of misguided tradition? Surah 4:157-158 states: "That they said (in boast), 'We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah'—but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not—nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself." Now if “they” refers to the Jews (and that seems clear), then the Qur'an might be considered technically correct in contending that the Jews themselves did not crucify Jesus (see alsoJohn 18:31)—that it was actually the Romans who did the deed. Is it possible that the heart of the conflict here really lies in a faulty interpretation of the Qur'an?
Why would Jesus as Allah's prophet have so often predicted His crucifixion?
Matthew 17:22-23 says "And while they were gathering together inGalilee, Jesus said to them, 'The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men; and they will kill Him, and He will be raised on the third day.' And they were deeply grieved." Consider also Mark 9:31;Luke 9:22; John 12:32-33. Jesus stressed this over and over. Why?
Doesn't the Qur'an corroborate the Bible regarding Jesus' death?
Surah 3:54 states: "When Allah said: 'O Jesus, I will cause thee to die and exalt thee in My presence and clear thee of those who disbelieve…" In so many ways that seems to corroborate with Philippians 2:8-10which states: "And being found in appearance as a man, He [Jesus] humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on Earth, and under the earth,"
Why would Allah deliberately deceive the world in such an insidious way?
It seems most incongruent with Islamic doctrine regarding the character of Allah to maintain that Allah would have either needed or chosen to resort to chicanery and mass deception in order to spare the life of Isa (Jesus).
