The Poisoned Veil By Bradley S. O'Leary
The book explores Islam and Sharia law in its oppressiveness to women and denial of equal rights with men. It looks at its approval of forced marriages, honor beatings and killings, polygamy, marriage of girls as young as ten and approval of the barbaric sexual blinding of girls as young as eight. It denies women's voices, keeps them segregated, denies equal rights and the freedom to work, seek education or have any independent freedoms at all.
They are hidden behind a veil and forced to do whatever men demand. The book delves into the following issues:
- the segregation between men and women that occurs at religious services
- the oppression resulting from Sharia law's interpretation of law regarding covering women in public
- the demand for a woman to accept a forced marriage the laws which allow Muslim men to have up to four wives and to marry girls as young as ten
- the interpretation of a Muslim man's right to physically enforce his will on his wife or children
- the barbaric practice of forcing young girls to be subjected to female genital mutilation, or sexual blinding, an act that has been condemned by the United Nations and Western governments, but is allowed and supported by Muslim religious leaders
- the effect Sharia law has on women in divorce cases
- the logic behind why a woman's voice isn't worth the same as a man's in court
- the reasons Sharia law should not be used in United States' federal court cases
- the laws passed by ten State legislatures banning Sharia law for use in state or local legal cases
- the problems nations in Europe and around the world have in blindly accepting Islamic refugees
- the ways America can protect itself from becoming another Islamic nation
- the solutions to protect Islamic women from these atrocities
