If you have ever read my bio you will know, I fight for what is right. Well, here is my fight.

About two months ago I watched the above video titled, “The Violent Oppression of Women in Islam.” It upset me so much that I became 100% determined to fight against Islam. The suffering women experience based on the sick teachings of Mohammed, a pedophiliac prophet of oppression needs to end.

To make this happen will not be easy. First, moderate Islam needs to stand up, speak FOR human rights and against Sharia. They need to speak out when members of their faith use Islam as a justification for violence and oppression. Second, women themselves must band together and fight for protection. Third, the rest of the world needs to educate themselves and acknowledge, Islam is NOT Peace.

I realize that other religions have treated women with the same disregard as Islam does today. But it is Islam that is spreading throughout the world and spreading their fascist ideology. Those of us, who are free to speak, must do so. We must speak loudly and repeatedly until all others are equally free to speak.

Thank you for taking the time to read.

She is a daughter
A sister
A wife
A mother

Her womb nurtured
Her breast fed
Her blood is in your blood

But to you
She is less than a man

So you cloak her
And you choke her
You cut her
And burn her
You hang her
And lash her

You regard her as property
Readily disposable
At three times the sound

Your world is sad
And bereft of love
Your world is dark
And filled with hate
Your world is death
Now give it life

See her, the woman
A piece of two halves
She is worthy of more
Than the vulgarity
Of your holy trash

Dear Sara,

This piece of poetry is timeless. I pray that our country wakes up before it's too late.

Peace be with you,

Your words ring true and I see the best hope for the Muslim woman and man and child in the stabilization of a middle class. That is what made a difference in the Old USA and it can make a difference elsewhere. Think about it. Economic stability. I would like to buy a pair of jeans from Afghanistan. Made from the sewing machine of a Muslim woman. I would even like the US to buy their opium and use it for medicinal purposes here in our country. That is about the only option we have given them to support themselves. Education flows with the trading of goods and the world slowly changes. Their world also, since I don't think it has changed in about 2,000 years or so. Wonderful write. Liz

I couldn't look at the video all the way, but you had me almost crying anyway. I also begin to cry when I see Hillary about to lead. Is there no man great enough to take on the task of rescuing our own from that lifeless place?

I so agree with you. It is sickening what women have to go through in this world. Love and best wishes to you,

Sara, thanks for raising your voice, may millions and millions more join you in unison to eventually bring freedom to all those enslaved by these maniacs. jln

I agree with this Sara, and applaud you for speaking out. I have written letters to editors of papers and magazines,hoping to get the truth of what the radical muslims are doing more prevalent, instead of the whitewashing the press does.

I found it very hard to complete this read but I did in honor of the women and children murdered, mutilated and enslaved. There is no justice for craziness protected by a religion that allows this terrorism toward their own.

It is said that "Well behaved women rarely make history"> keep up your Rebel side. I am too.

Sara, thank you so much for sharing. All too often those kind of vodeos are looked at as being 'too disturbing'. Too many of us look away and pretend that such agony does not exist. I admire your will to stand up and fight for those women. I'm standing right here with you, sister!!

This is one of the strongest videos, messages and poems that I have read in regards to the Islamic repression of woman and children...sick feeling in the pit of my stomach from seeing and readign but perhaps this is what the world needs to see more of in order to make it end.

America and the so--called civilized world are turning a blind eye to A LOT OF THINGS when it come to the Muslims, Islam's, whatever . . . Where are the damn feminists, they sure like to rake our guys over the coals at every chance, well they do if they are conservative, but they don not care about their sisters in these despot countries . . . There is so much to look at and see, and the oppression of women is but one of them, the world, especially Europe and soon America are going to be doomed if we don't take our fingers out of our butts and start doing something about the fact they are infiltrating our own country and want their laws even here . . . Sorry, Sara . . . I got carried away, but I don't take back one damn word . . .

I feel so sorry for the women who are subjected to this inhumane treatment. Peaceful religion, my FOOT!! Yes, I shall join you in that fight!

What I said on your last poem rings true, Sara--women have no rights in that culture. They are chattle; property; theirs to do with as they wish. Oh, well if another woman gets beaten or killed as a result. Keep speaking out: I join you in your fight. Potentially life saving information in this heartbreaking reality.

(((HUGS))) and love, StormSpinner
