Ramadan 2013 – Day 7 – An Epidemic of RapePosted: July 15, 2013
Last month six teenage boys, aged 15 to 17 from a Muslim community in Sweden were sentenced for the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl in a Stockholm. Because the perpetrators were minors, they received a very light sentence of community service and the payment of damages ($8,500 each) to the victim. Four of the boys confessed, but they denied they had committed any crime. In another Swedish gang rape, a 29-year-old mother of two ended up in an asylum in a wheelchair suffering from “mental distress” and fecal incontinence after having endured a rape marathon that lasted for seven hours. The convicted rapists were seven Muslim Afghan refugees who repeatedly raped her vaginally, anally and orally while cheering and calling her “slut” and “whore.” Their sentences ranged only from 4 to 6 years.
Sweden is the second highest rape capital of the world, and it is estimated that 1 out of every 4 Swedish women will be raped. Last summer in Stockholm, there was an average of five rapes reported each day. These statistics have skyrocketed with the increase of immigrants from Islamic countries. Muslims make up only about 6% of the Swedish population, but statistics reveal they commit 77.6% of all crimes.
This epidemic is not limited to Sweden. In Oslo, Norway 100% of all rape cases solved by the police from 2007-2010 were committed by immigrant Muslim men, and nine out of ten of their victims were native Norwegians. In June, Scottish police made 37 arrests and identified 108 further potential victims and perpetrators of two “large scale” child sex rings. The police report a “significant proportion” of “ethnic minority offenders” which is oftentimes how Muslims offenders are identified due to fear of offending Muslim populations. This case follows the May conviction of seven Muslim men for being a part of a child sex trafficking ring that lasted over eight years in Britain.
The Sydney gang rapes by a group of up to 14 Lebanese Australian Muslims in 2000 prompted the passage of new laws increasing the sentences for gang rapists. In another case of gang rape by Pakistani Muslims in Australia, one rapist serving a 22 year long sentence admitted, “…at that time when I commit these offences I come from such a background which led me to.” According to FrontPage Magazine, “In the view of Islam, when a man rapes an immodestly dressed woman, the rape isn’t his fault but hers; and when a Muslim rapes an infidel in the ‘House of War,’ it’s recognized as a form of jihad.”
Immigrant Muslim males have been raised since birth to think of women as inferior. Overall women are given a low status in the Qur’an. PoliticalIslam.com estimates that 71% of the Qur’an and 93% of the Hadith subjects women to a lower status than men. In addition when Muhammad would conquer other people, he allowed his followers to take women as prisoners of war. These women became slaves and as such Muslim men were allowed to have sex with them. (Sura 70:22-30, Sura 23:5,6; Sura 4:24; Sura 33:50).
For those who respect and value women it is difficult to read this information. However, it is very important to understand what many women, even those in western nations are facing so we can speak out on their behalf and protect them.
Pray for the victims of this violent trauma – for healing of not only their physical bodies, but for their hearts and emotions. Pray that God will raise up Christian counselors to help these women walk through the healing process.
Pray also for the perpetrators – those violating the women and committing these acts of violence. Though they must be held accountable for their actions, they need to hear His truth on how women are to be treated. Ask God to reveal Himself to them, lead them to Christ and teach them His ways.
Pray that western media and governments will be honest and expose this root of rape jihad taking place in their nations.
