Andy Bostom asks whether it’s a teachable moment for the *Ted Baxter clone at Fox News, Bill O’Reilly. One can always hope. Btw, Wafa Sultan is a great resource for anyone wanting to know anything about life for women in an Islamic country.
Wafa Educates Bill on the “Rape Factor” in Islam
Last night for a few brief shining television moments (captured here), Wafa Sultan, courageous author of the indispensable jeremiad “A God Who Hates,” strove gamely to educate Bill O’Reilly—often seeminglyimpenetrable by facts regarding Sharia—about how Islamic Law, patterned on the “perfect example” of Islam’s prophet Muhammad, sanctions rape.
The news “hook” for Wafa’s unfortunately rare appearance was the recent alleged rape of a Libyan woman, Iman Al-Obeidi by Qadaffi’s minions.
As a working physician in her native Syria, Wafa noted that she was familiar with “many such crimes” committed with the sanction of Sharia—Islamic Law. She elaborated that under Sharia,
Any sexual activity is considered the given right of a male…A Muslim woman cannot report being raped because she will be asked to provide four witnesses otherwise she will be accused of committing adultery, and she will be stoned to death.
