Misogyny is on steroids in Islamic societies. And it's not restricted to Islamic nations, but has spread to Islamic communities in western nations.
Why the disregard for women? It's what the prophet Mohammed taught, pure and simple.
In fact, did you know that hell will be inhabited predominantly by women? So says an Islamic television station in the UK.
Read from Jihad Watch:
U.K.'s most popular Islamic channel under investigation for promoting 'extremism'
"'Viewers were told that "the majority of people in hell will be women".' What kind of rabid extremist would say that? Well, Muhammad. In fact, it comes up more than once. Several times, actually.
More on this story. 'UK's Islam Channel under investigation,' by David Sapsted for The National, March 28:
London // 'Britain's most popular Muslim TV channel is to be investigated by the government's broadcasting watchdog after being accused of promoting extremists.
The Office of Communications (Ofcom) took action after an in-depth survey of the programmes on the Islam Channel by the Quilliam Foundation, a moderate Islamic think tank based in London.
After monitoring the output of the satellite channel for three months, the foundation reported: "The gravest concern regarding the Islam Channel is its failure in combating extremism.
"A number of presenters with extremist tendencies were regularly given the opportunity to air their opinions on the network without a challenge from more moderate Islamic voices."
The report also condemned the channel, which is headquartered in London, for being demeaning to women, saying that programmes instructed women that they could not refuse to have sexual relations with their husbands.
Under British law, a husband who forces his wife to have sex with him can be charged with rape.
The report added that on one programme, women were told that they should not leave their homes without their husband's consent and should always have a male escort. Another suggested that women who wore perfume were prostitutes.
Concerns were also raised in the report over a religious advice programme in which viewers were told that "the majority of people in hell will be women" because they are the cause of "calamities, hardship and suffering" in western society."...'"
