Why wasn’t this article written by N.O.W.?

Writer ties Bhutto’s assassination to islam’s inherent sexism. Yeah, no kidding. Front page news in the NY Times? Not hardly. A new position paper put out by the Dems to show their militant drive to export full equality worldwide? Are you kidding? Is it a new viewpoint from all the Womyn’s Groups, like NOW? Put the pipe down Whitney, step away from the crack. That’s whack! No, today’s nicely written bit of awakening comes to us from The Australian, not even from the front pages but from the opinion column. Back to sleep my little sheeple, nothing to see here, move along.

Just to make sure the author hadn’t cribbed this from NOW, I went over to the NOW website, and there was not a single mention of the assassination of Benazir Bhutto that I could find. Not even under one of their main sections called Violence Against Women. Nope, NOW is far more concerned about forcing Wal-Mart to carry “emergency contraception”, boycotting Imus, and demanding “health care” for illegal immigrants and their kids.

Back in 2001 there were quite a number of articles that made the connection between terrorism and repressed sexuality in islamic societies. Other writers pointed out that woman hating was a root cause for the constant anger and frustration, the suicide bombings, the carswarms, etc.; an entire culture chained into an Atwone Fisher nightmare that repeats itself across endless generations. I believe they were all correct. Once again, “Everything I ever really needed to know about Islam I learned by reading Leon Uris’ The Haj more than 20 years ago”.

Today an author in Australia makes the same point, in the case of the Bhutto assassination. Will people ever listen? Will the left, ever so sooo concerned about Human Rights, realize they have just cause to also fight this implacable enemy? After all, it really is for the women, the gays, and The Childrentm.

Assassinated because she was a woman

by Pamela Bone | January 02, 2008

ARE women across the world mourning Benazir Bhutto? They should be.
...
Bhutto was murdered because to her enemies she was Westernised, a traitor to her culture and an American stooge. She was murdered because she had vowed to bring secularism and democracy to Pakistan. She was murdered because she was all these things, and a woman.

“I know I am a symbol of what the so-called jihadists, Taliban and al-Qa’ida, most fear,” she wrote in her autobiography, Daughter of the East. “I am a female political leader fighting to bring modernity, communication, education and technology to Pakistan.”

Yes, fear is the right word. The fear of women, of women’s freedom, and most of all, of women’s sexuality, runs through Islamism. It is a large part of Islamist hatred of the West. “The issue of women is not marginal,” writes the Dutch scholar Ian Buruma. “It lies at the heart of Islamic occidentalism (anti-Westernism).”

It is the “deep, ignored issue”, writes Paul Berman, author of Terror and Liberalism. Why, I wonder, is it mainly men who are making these points?

To call these warriors for God sexually repressed is to absurdly understate it.

f the fact that she was a Western-educated woman seeking power in lands they claim as their own was not reason enough, killing her meant they could disrupt the scheduled elections and maintain instability in Pakistan, which would allow them to continue using that country’s territory to train the increasing numbers of willing martyrs, funded by trillions of dollars from opium sales.

One wonders why the Western powers don’t make a co-ordinated effort to defoliate Afghanistan’s opium fields.

Well, I don’t want to fisk her, but this one is a huge mystery to me. Especially as opium growing was outlawed under the Taliban! Also, recall the story about the soldier and the saffron.

Could the murder of Bhutto be enough to wake up Western women to the fact that the war being waged by the Islamists is very much about them? Could the modern Left be persuaded that the people who killed Bhutto are the ones we are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq and other places across the world? Can we, in our niceness, stop telling ourselves they are justified in their hatred of us?

That’s my blog goal for 2008: to spread a nice big cup of WAKE THE HELL UP to as many folks as I can.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
