'Britain's Islam Channel rapped for advocating marital rape and calling women prostitutes'

[The article follows the comment below; after the dotted line.]

It’s all there in the Koran. Put simply, all women (even Mohammed’s 11 wives) are second-class citizens – including those in burkas and hijabs. Pious burka-clad Muslims may suffer less, but only by suffering in another way – by being doormats. Strangely, one of the only freedoms many of these burka-clad women have is in expressing their Islamism, either in the dress-sense itself or at demonstrations, etc.

Back to the Koran. It is full of derogatory passages about women, usually sexual in content. Mohammed himself was a man with 11 wives, one of whom he married when she was nine, some others of whom he had Islamic ‘temporary marriages’ (prostitution) with. What a stud, eh? What a woman-hater.

Of course, Britain’s Islam Channel has been in the news a few times before. Always for aspects related to its hard-core sharia stance as well as its support of terrorism (e.g., support of Hamas and Hezbollah). Interestingly enough, the Socialist Workers Party’s John Rees (formerly of its Central Committee) often contributes to the Islam Channel, usually about how evil that 'Zionist entity’ (Israel) is. It is no surprise, then, that according to Ofcom ‘two… programmes in October 2009, relating to aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, were found to have breached the code relating to impartiality in political matters’.

We already know that Islam does not recognise rape within marriage. But, even more conveniently, it doesn’t recognise it outside marriage either. Thus rape effectively doesn’t exist in Islamic states. And yet according to certain groups, Pakistan has the worst actual rape levels on the planet (outside the Congo), which is not surprising after what’s been said. That is, the only way a man can be convicted of rape is when the female rape victim can get four male witnesses to testify to the rape. Thus, the end result is that the woman herself is often convicted for the rape! Not only that, pregnancy, according to Pakistani authorities, is proof that no rape has occurred!

And the icing on the cake is that the host’s advice is not to beat the wife on the face. Not out of a sense of decency, but so as to stop the beating making his wife ‘ugly’ as well as ensuring that others outside the family won’t find out about the discord within the marriage. Or, as the host himself puts it: 'In Islam we have no right to hit the woman in a way that damages her eye or damages her tooth or damages her face or makes her ugly.’

The Islam Channel also had another interesting thing to say in this very same programme. Did you know that the second a woman puts on makeup she becomes a ‘prostitute’? Or so this diseased aspect of Islam has it.

By Daily Mail reporter, 9th November 2010
A Muslim religious channel that allowed presenters to condone marital rape and call women who wear perfume in mosques 'prostitutes' has been censured by the TV watchdog.

In one programme, the host told viewers that it was 'not strange' and 'not such a big problem' for a man to force his wife to have sex.

Ofcom ruled the Islam Channel, which broadcasts on Sky, breached the broadcasting code in five programmes between May 2008 and October 2009.

A phone-in show in May 2008, in which a female caller asked if she had the right to hit a violent husband back, was deemed in breach of the code.

The presenter at one point stated: 'In Islam we have no right to hit the woman in a way that damages her eye or damages her tooth or damages her face or makes her ugly.

'Maximum what you can do, you can see the pen over here, in my hand, this kind of stick can be used just to make her feel that you are not happy with her.'

Ofcom said it considered the presenter was clear some form of physical punishment was acceptable.

A discussion programme in April 2009 on sexual relations within marriage was found to have breached guidelines, as was a programme in October 2009 in which it was said women who wore perfume outside the home could be declared 'a prostitute'.

Regulator Ofcom ruled that discussions containing contentious views on violence towards women and marital rape on Islam TV were against broadcasting guidelines

In a submission to the report, the Islam Channel said it 'does not condone or encourage violence towards women under any circumstances' and 'does not condone or encourage marital rape'.

Two further programmes in October 2009 relating to aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict were found to have breached the code relating to impartiality in political matters.

Ofcom previously imposed a statutory sanction on the channel in 2007 for various breaches.
The findings followed an inquiry begun after allegations were laid against the TV station by a moderate Islamic think tank, the Quilliam Foundation.

The Islam Channel, launched six years ago, has been accused in the past of giving airtime to extreme views, including those of Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group that Tony Blair said he wanted to ban in the aftermath of the 2005 London transport bomb.
