HuffPo: Muhammad Was ‘History’s First Feminist’

Breitbart: In an astonishing feat of mental legerdemain, the Huffington Post has made the claim that the prophet Muhammad—who married 13 wives and taught that women have an intellect inferior to men’s—was actually an active promotor of women’s rights, the world’s “first feminist.”

Of all the founders of the great religions, argues Banafsheh Sayyad in the Post, “Muhammad was easily the most radical and empowering in his treatment of women. Arguably he was history’s first feminist.”

Sayyad writes that the prophet Muhammad would be “appalled” by how current Islamic radicals are treating women, which “is certainly not consistent with anything we know about what Muhammad taught or how he treated women.”

Yet Muhammad married a six-year-old girl named Aisha when he was in his fifties. According to the authoritative Sahih Bukhari, the consummation of their marriage occurred three years later. “The Prophet wrote the marriage contract with her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old.”

The Qur’an also permits Muslims to have sex with their female captives and slaves, a disposition regularly exploited by fighters of the Islamic State. The Qur’an praises those men who abstain from sex “except from their wives or what their right hands possess (captives), for then they are not to be blamed.”  MORE

  1. I’m calling bullshit on this revisionism. Momad was a child rapist and general abuser of women. If he weren’t then why does he wrap them in garbage bags? Riddle me this, why don’t you.

  2. mohammad was a murdering, pedophile, false prophet, pervert who dressed up in women’s clothing and subjected women to the cruelest forms of submission and disrespect.
    Yet, mohammad is to be lauded for waiting until Aisha was 9 before he consummated his marriage? Perverted bastard.

  3. Raping nine year old girls = “female empowerment.”

    Fifth wave feminism is obviously going to be chattel slavery for all women forever, via pisslam.

    Can’t wait to see Gloria Steinum whipped to death for speaking out of turn.

  4. This confirms what I began to suspect back in the early nineties. The left was making an alliance with Islam in order to overpower us. They will use the Muslims to fulfill domestic goals and further their agenda. Hey, I warned you just right now, don’t blame me when everything collapses.

  5. Their argument is based on Mo’s lack of preference between 9 yr old girls or boys for sodomy.
    Gotta love their peppering “arguably” into their propaganda kaka.
    Piss be upon them always.

  6. … all quite true … I remember listening to the preacher just this Sunday that the Bible says Jesus taught that ritual clitorectomy was God’s will & that raping children was drawing yourself nearer to God …
    /sarc off
    come to think of it … I know no other religion in the world that promotes pedophilia, homosexuality, particularly practiced upon the youth, chattel-slavery of women, than Islam
    (p. s. do a little research about Jesus’ view towards women … it’s very enlightening)
