DESPICABLE B*TCH: Insane liberal college professor defends Islamic sex slavery



Liberal Boston University professor and Muslim apologist Kecia Ali recently wrote an article forThe Huffington Post that attempted to make excuses for the pervasive nature of slavery (particularly sexual slavery) in the modern Muslim world. Right off the bat her arguments begin to feel as ridiculous as they truly are, and even without knowing for certain that something is wrong, a reader can feel that something is wrong – both with her reasoning (which is limited) and with her arguments (which are specious and easily disproven).

Ali writes the piece in an effort to distance “mainstream” Islam from ISIS’ brand of Islam. She argues that while ISIS may participate in horrible and debauched practices, many of their beliefs are not actually part of mainstream modern Islam. Sadly, she is more than a little mistaken. One doesn’t need to look solely at ISIS to find these horrible practices still pulsating and thriving in the Muslim world. Slavery is well established, though illegal, throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The sexual domination of male over female exists wherever Islam exists. The sexually perverse practices that ISIS engages in can be found in a much quieter and accepted manner throughout the Muslim world, where instead of being kidnapped and forced into sexual slavery, children are simply given into it by their willing parents.

Ali takes on the enormous task of absolving Islam of the sins of ISIS, but in the end she fails. Her arguments are as flimsy as the cloth on the backs of the enslaved women and children that she ignores in her efforts to defend Islam.

Thankfully, there are people willing to tell the truth about Islam. Thankfully, there are people willing to take Kecia Ali’s argument and prove it false point by point. Robert Spencer writes:

“The Truth About Islam and Sex Slavery History Is More Complicated Than You Think,” by Kecia Ali, Huffington Post, August 19, 2015 (thanks to David):

…Others scholars point out that just because the Quran acknowledges slavery and early Muslims, including the Prophet, practiced it doesn’t mean Muslims must always do so; indeed, the fact that slavery is illegal and no longer practiced in nearly all majority-Muslim societies would seem to settle the point. It is one thing for committed religious thinkers to insist that scripture must always and everywhere apply literally, but it is ludicrous for purportedly objective scholars to do so. Anyone making that argument about biblical slavery would be ridiculed.

The disingenuous reasoning here is appalling. Can’t anyone in academia deal with a topic honestly anymore? I know Kecia Ali is a university professor, and university professors today are mostly muddle-headed ideologues more interested in pushing their far-Left agenda than having rational discussion or searching for the truth, but this is ridiculous. There are so many things wrong with that paragraph
