US Attorney’s Response “…Loewen’s alleged actions in no way…reflect on any religious group.” But What Does the FBI’s Criminal Complaint Say?
Loewen in His Own Words “I have been studying subjects like jihad, martyrdom, and Shar’ia law. I don’t know how you can read the Qur’an… “and not understand that jihad…is demanded of all Muslims…” “I have numerous ideas of ways I could perform jihad in the path of Allah…” “I must be active in some kind of jihad to feel I’m doing something proactive for the ummah”

SHAR’IA LAW & WOMEN Treatment of Females Indicates Type of Islam: Secular or Fundamental Shar’ia Theology Denies Equal Protection May be Criminal or Civil Violation Women Not Equal to Men!
Theological Basis for Male/Female Relations (4.34) “Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because men have more strength and…support them from their means. “The righteous women are devoutly obedient…and to those women who are disloyal or (show) ill conduct, admonish them, refuse to share their beds, and beat them lightly, but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means of annoyance…”
Women Considered Inferior Because Muhammad Said So! Genetics Are Off Deficient Mind “Your wives are a tilth (field) unto you, so approach your tilth when and how ye will.” Men Marry Women for: wealth, status, beauty, & religion “If a man invites his wife to sleep with him and she refuses, then angles send their curses….”
What Rights do Muslim Women Have? “You shall give her food when you have taken your food, …cloth her after you have clothed yourself…nor leave her…except (at) home.” “…the best mosque for women is the inner part of the house.”
Islam’s Culture of Male Dominance Women, Sex, Violence, Honor, all Linked Major Theme: Male Supremacy & Female Submission = Shar’ia Law
Dress Codes Modesty is the Key! “…believing women…should lower their gaze and guard their modesty;… not display their beauty and ornaments;…draw their veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty EXCEPT for their husbands…or (other family members) or slaves…and they should not strike their feet in order to draw attention to their hidden ornaments.” All Designed to Protect Men from Temptation.
The Meaning of the Veil Symbolizes Faith, Purity, & Obedience Badge of Honor And Supports Traditional Values Protects Against Sexual Harassment Promotes Treatment as Individuals not Objects Frees Women from Exploitation Rejects Western Decadence AND Protects Men from Aggressive Femininity.
The Fundamentalists Believe Women’s “Awra (Nakedness) Must be Covered When Outside the Home “Islam Regards the Female Body Essentially as Evil and the cause of Sexual Immorality.” “…the Dangerous Female Body that Somehow, in Muslim Society, Has Been Made to Carry the Heavy Burden of Male Honor.”
Women, Honor, & Chastity Man’s Honor = Woman’s Chastity Not Based on Personal Character of Honesty & Fidelity Family Honor Depends on It Men Considered Weak Until Honor Restored If Raped, Female Charged for Adultery Unless 4 Male Witnesses
According to Brigitte Gabriel “…honor in the family is the sole responsibility of the female. Male honor lies between their women’s legs.” “An unmarried woman must remain a virgin…until marriage.” And must “…produce proof of her virginity to her father-in-law on her wedding night.” “If she fails to bleed…(her)death becomes the obligation of her family members….”
Islam’s Contempt for Women Female Circumcision = Genital Mutilation Part of Shar’ia; but NOT Practiced by All Muslims Where Did It Originate? Desert Culture Performed by Age Nine Kept Wives of Warriors Chaste While Men Off Fighting to Protect the Tribe.

Honor Killings Reestablishing Honor Is Man’s Responsibility To Save Face & Restore Social Standing Murder is Legal to Protect Honor “…honor killing falls into perfect harmony with Muslim views of women and their sexual repression.” Shar’ia Law: “The following are not subject to retaliation—a father or mother…for killing their offspring, or offspring’s offspring.”

Of the World’s Peaceful Muslims, Only 15-20% are Radical— Leaving 300 million Radicals!
