Are Muslims Rapists?

Hatred against Jews and hatred against Muslims have a lot in common. One thing in particular is that throughout history Jews and Muslims have been accused of being rapists. The Nazis in the 30’s were well known for their claim that Jewish men seek to rape “Aryan women and small girls” to “make Europe more Jewish.” The myth that all Jewish men are rapists is still being spread among antisemites. Today Muslims are victims of this slander as well.

The internet is filled with claims that Muslims rape women. The website close to President Donald Trump, Breitbart, is no exception to that. Breitbart often claims that Muslim men are sexual perverts that just want to rape women.

Milo Yiannopoulos, senior editor at Breitbart, stated;

Women will suffer terrible sexual atrocities at the hands of Muslims, but they will survive these encounters most of the time.  Muslims want to violate women, not kill them.”

A lie that is often repeated will be accepted as the “Truth” by many in the end. So too with the lies of Breitbart.”Muslim Rape Crisis“, “Muslim Rape Gang Leader“, “Muslim Gang Rapists are Springing Up Everywhere“, “Islamic Rape Gangs“, “Muslim Child Rape“, etc etc…

Jewish and Muslim “Rape-culture”

By now you might ask whether a Muslim has ever raped a woman? Of course there are individual Muslim rapists, as there are Jewish rapists, rapists among Trump supporters, among farmers, Americans, Christians, Russians, carpenters and stamp collectors.  But if you claim that Muslims, Jews, Trump supporters or Christians  are rapists you are spreading a dangerous lie. You are implying that ALL are criminals.

According to Breitbart there is a “Muslim Rape Culture.” The Nazis spread the same lies about Jews in the 30’s, as Breitbart does today in respect to Muslims, and claimed that there was such a thing as “Jewish Rape Culture.” The German magazine Der Sturmer was especially famous for spreading these kinds of slanders.

In the picture below, from Der Sturmer,  you can see the satanic Jewish snake that is raping a woman, and in the background you can see the Talmud.

The Nazis claimed that the Jewish Talmud allowed marriages between adult men and children. It was claimed that Jews were pedophiles and that it had its origin in the religion. If you wonder where the myth that all Muslims are pedophiles comes from, or slanders about the prophet Mohammad and Aisha, you should look at the antisemitic roots of these slanders.

Antisemitism

“Jewish Defamation of the Blood,” that is the headline of this issue of Der Sturmer. In the bottom of the page it says that “The Jews are our disgrace”.

The Nazis took real rape, committed by individuals that happened to be Jews, mixed it with lies and fabricated stories about “rape.” The example below is from Der Sturmer 1927. According to the article, an American Jew raped a German woman in Ohio. “Defamation of the Race in America” is the headline. The implied message is that “all Jews are like that.”

By claiming that Jews were rapists and by giving “evidence” about this the Nazis whipped up hatred against Jews in Germany. Truth was replaced by “alternative facts.”

In the Nuremberg trials after World War 2 it was established that the lie that a “Jewish Rape Culture” existed was one of the crimes against humanity the Nazis committed. In Nuremberg this quote from Der Sturmer 1933 was put forward as one of the evidences of the Nazi crimes.

“One single cohabitation of a Jew with an Aryan woman is sufficient to poison her blood forever. Together with the alien albumen she has absorbed the alien soul…. Now we know why the Jew uses every artifice of seduction in order to ravish German girls at as early an age as possible; why the Jewish doctor rapes his patients while they were under anaesthetic. He wants the German girl and the German woman to absorb the alien sperm of the Jew. She is never again to bear German children… The author and abettor of such action is the Jew. He has been aware of the secrets of the race question for centuries, and therefore plans systematically the annihilation of the nations which are superior to him. Science and authorities are his instruments for the enforcing of pseudo-science and the concealment of truth.”(M-20).

But are Muslims rapists?

Of course no. The question is stupid. Are all Christian rapists? Are Americans rapists?

The lie is easy to expose. They claim that all people belonging to a group are guilty of real or invented crimes that a few persons in the group might, or might not, have committed. That is hatred, that is racism!

It is not “free for all” rape gang up on women. And, Islam encouraged emancipation and freedom of slaves, not making people become slaves all over again.”

    I haven’t read ISIS literature in a while. But when I did read it, they tended to refer more to hadiths than the Quran to justify what they do. For example, they refer to their female sex slaves by the non-Quranic word “sabiyya,” not the Quranic phrase “ma malakat aymanukum”. Most Sunni translations translate the phrase “ma malakat aymanukum” as “those whom your right hands possess”. And most Sunni commentaries (with the exception of ar-Razi if I’m not mistaken) claim that “ma malakat aymanukum” refers to female sex slaves.

    However, “those whom your right hands possess” is not a literal translation of the phrase “ma malakat aymanukum”. Prof. Martha Schulte-Nafah and Edip Yuksel point out in their translation that the word “ayman” never means “right hands” in the Quran. It is consistently means “oaths/contracts”. They write in their footnote:

    “The expression in question, thus could be translated as ‘those whom your oaths/contracts have rights over’ or ‘those whom you hold rights through your contracts,’ or by reading aYMaN (oaths/contracts) as an object rather than a subject, ‘those who hold/possess your contracts.'”

    The phrase “ma malakat aymanukum/those whom you hold rights through your contracts” reminds me of the phrase “alladhi biyadihi uqtadu al-nikahi/those in whose hand is the marriage-tie” in 2:237. They both refer to the marital relationship, not female sex slaves. Amusingly, people who claim that “ma malakat aymanukum” means female sex slaves seem oblivious to the fact that the Quran uses both the masculine grammatical form (ma malakat aymanuhum) and the feminine grammatical form (ma malakat aymanuhunna). Does this mean that women can have male sex slaves? 🙂

    Amie wrote: “Under the pretext of “avoiding sin” some Muslim governments have segregated women, essentially house imprisoning them in advance and allows them to move about only when unless chaperoned by their male family members. Hence, when a woman is raped she is immediately considered to go against the segregationist laws that limit the women’s movement outside. Because she “breaks” such segregation laws, she becomes suspect of wrongdoing and even though she may be a victim of the most horrific sexual crime, she is set up to be punished for something.”

    Saudi Arabia has a law that requires women to have a male chaperone. In Arabic, these chaperones are called wali. The Saudis claim that this practice is based on the Quran 4:34. However, the word wali doesn’t even occur in that verse! The word used in 4:34 is qawwamuna. The Saudis claim that this word means guardian or chaperone. The Arabic word qawwamuna means to stand up for something or someone. In 4:34, it refers to men who stand up for women. In 4:135, the same word, qawwamina, is used. However, here it refers to both men and women who stand up for justice. Contrary to what the Saudis claim, the Quran doesn’t say that men are walis of women, it says that men and women are walis of each other (wa l-mu’minuna wa l-mu’minatu ba’duhum awliya, see 9:71). Fortunately, some Saudi women are starting to question these Arab cultural practices masquerading as Islamic practices:

    I know you’re not an Islamophobe. 🙂 I was speaking in general.

  • AJ

    I am in no way endorsing Arabs, Saudi Arabia or anyone else. I was just pointing out that it was incorrect knowledge that Saudi Arabia requires 4 witnesses to prosecute a rapist. That information is as wrong as what’s circulated around in the media about women in Saudi Arabia needing a mehrem to get out of their houses.

  • You can learn some things, but there is no substitute for firsthand experience.

  • Amie

    The Qur’an punishments for adultery, both for men and women, are public lashes and house imprisonment, with the condition that they marry only other adulterers. Under the pretext of “avoiding sin” some Muslim governments have segregated women, essentially house imprisoning them in advance and allows them to move about only when unless chaperoned by their male family members. Hence, when a woman is raped she is immediately considered to go against the segregationist laws that limit the women’s movement outside. Because she “breaks” such segregation laws, she becomes suspect of wrongdoing and even though she may be a victim of the most horrific sexual crime, she is set up to be punished for something.

  • Amie

    Regarding 2:222 verse, my Bosnian translation says: “Women are your fields, so you approach them as you please, but do some good for your souls. Fear God…” Rashad Khalifa interpreted the same verse as: “Your women are the bearers of your seed. Thus, you may enjoy this privilege however you like, so long as you maintain righteousness. You shall observe God, and know that you will meet Him. Give good news to the believers.” Why would God remind men to fear/observe Him right after mentioning how men should sexually engage with their women? For the reason that there are times that women may not want sexual contact, such as menstruation mentioned in 2:221 or for other reasons. And, if God is comparing women to the fields, it is a metaphor for people who think/reason. What does one do with his/her field? You work on it, you cultivate it, you DO NOT abuse it. If you abuse the field, there will be no fruits for you, right? And one would be considered, per Islamic teachings, ungrateful for abusing what God has bestowed upon him/her. There are verses where fields are mentioned in different context and God speaks how he would withhold blessings from the fields due to owners being ungrateful. When God mentions women as “fields for sowing” ones seed, it is a metaphor that men must take heed to.

  • Amie

    I think extremists like ISIS justify their evil crimes against humanity by misinterpreting verses of the Qur’an that speak of “women are your fields” and “take women whom your right hand posses.” What they completely ignore are verses that speak how women must be treated with respect, that they are men’s companions, etc. Any person with the brains and ability to use reason would ask: “If God says that He is Most Merciful, then says that women must be treated well, would God contradict Himself?” The Perfect God never would: He says that women are men’s fields, “so enter the field as you like” (or something like that) in a sense that when in sexual intercourse you can explore but as noted not do anal sex. Also, “take those whom your right hand possess” speak of women who in 7th century Arabia were already slaves/servants in households and whom Muslim men were encouraged to marry as a way to free them. It is not “free for all” rape gang up on women. And, Islam encouraged emancipation and freedom of slaves, not making people become slaves all over again.

    One does not have to be a visitor to Saudi Arabia to learn and research what Saudis do. Muslims must be critical of the regime in S. Arabia. Not only do they put forth a bad image to Islam as a religion, but they do oppress their people. Starting with women.

  • Amie

    Saudis are not representative of 1 billion Muslim people who hold different opinions and interpretations considering what Islam teaches. It is true that the Saudis do public executions and punishments for various crimes, including adultery. Whether they interpret Islamic teachings correctly, is a different matter. And, many Muslims around the world are critical of how Saudis portray and live their Islam. The West has given birth to many Muslim scholars and average folks to speak out against what they believe non Islamic practices such as stoning/beheadings. Why West? Because many of the people feel that the values and laws in the West allows them to say freely what they believe. Muslims who live under the regimes like Saudi dynasty are very likely not to speak out for fear of persecution. Also, some Muslims who do live in the West may not publicly speak out either because they still have relatives abroad. For example, when the Arab Spring started, some Arabs in Saudi Arabia did protest and ended up being executed. The government made sure that the regime stays put, and who knows what kind of charges they blamed the protesters with to punish them with capital penalty.

  • Joey Sanders

    Thank you for asking questions. Other people have answered it, so I won’t do that in my post.

    I will just say that the Muslim World takes rape very seriously. In the Western World, you get jail time. In the Muslim World, you get the death penalty.

  • I’m so glad we have you here, a visitor who can tell us firsthand about Saudi Arabia. 🙂

  • AJ

    If you google ‘rape beheading Saudi Arabia’ you will find plenty of people who had their heads chopped off. It’s a misconception that to prove rape in Saudi Arabia, 4 witnesses are required.

  • MichaelElwood

    Heather Rose wrote: “Yet, doesn’t a woman need more that one witness b/c her opinion is worth less than a man’s in court? This would make the crime virtually unpunishable as rape tends to be mostly he said she said.”

    No, you’re conflating rape with adultery. A person making an adultery accusation needs 4 witnesses. A woman who is raped does not need 4 witnesses to prove that she’s that she’s been raped. In some traditional cultures, rape and adultery are conflated. But this has no basis in the Quran:

    “Critics and supporters alike are quick to point out that these rape laws are Islamically influenced, but in reality they represent a complete distortion of Islamic shariah law. At the crux of the problem is that adultery, or zina, is expanded to include rape, zina bil-jabr, a crime unrelated to adultery precisely because the former involves the consent of both parties, while the later does not. According to the Quran, in order to prosecute adultery, four eye witnesses to the actual penetration must testify. If found guilty, both parties, male and female, are punished equally with 100 lashes. The Quran places the burden of proof on the accuser, not the accused, in order to prevent widespread accusations of adultery, which are especially levelled against women since they often carry the ‘proof of adultery’ in the form of pregnancies. In fact, not even pregnancies are to be admitted as evidence for adultery. These high standards of proof are meant to protect against anyone being falsely accused, not of rape, but of having a consensual extra-marital sexual relationship.

    “In the Quran, rape is never mentioned, indicating that it falls under an entirely different set of rules. By superimposing definitions of adultery onto rape, the entire spirit of shariah law regarding adultery – that is, the necessity to suppress accusations of adultery especially aimed at women – is completely distorted. Instead of protecting women, these rape laws especially burden women and other victims of rape.

    “While the laws are reprehensible, they are symptomatic of a victim blaming rape culture that is not specific to Muslim countries. In March 2013, a case called the Steubenville rape involving the sexual assault of an incapacitated high school girl gained widespread coverage in the United States. A number of public figures, including tennis star Serena Williams, blamed the girl for ‘put[ting] herself in that situation’.

    “American Sociologist Patricia Yancey Martin writes that the victim blaming culture begins with law enforcement and extends to the courts, legal authorities, media and even hospitals whom she accuses of ‘unfairly portraying rape victims as emotionally unstable, morally dubious, unpredictable and erratic’. The consequence is that an alarming amount of rapists are never prosecuted.”

    Heather Rose wrote: “I understand not all Muslims are rapists, but can you not (like ISIS has) find permission for rape in the Quran? Can anyone provide a reference in the Quran where forced intercourse is discouraged or forbidden?”

    No, there is no permission for rape in the Quran. I’ll give you an example. It’s fashionable for Islamophobes to claim that South Asian and Middle Eastern men who “groom” young girls for prostitution are engaged in an Islamically sanctioned activity. However, the Quran prohibits prostitution and comes down on the side of the girls who are forced into it but not the men who force them:

    “. . . .You shall not force your girls to commit prostitution, seeking the materials of this world, if they wish to be chaste. If anyone forces them, then GOD, seeing that they are forced, is Forgiver, Merciful.” [Quran 24:33]

  • Amie

    No. Rape is classified as adultery by places like Saudi Arabia and as such the Saudis look for 4 witnesses. The Qur’an doesn’t state that rape is adultery as much as Saudis would like all Muslims to believe. In fact, one of main reasons why hijab was ordered in the Quran for women was sexual harassment and rape because abusers claimed they confused the victims with prostitutes. Regarding the controversy about “women are your fields” it is just in reference to sexual freedom between husband and wife. This is additionally clarified where all sexual positions are allowed but anal sex in marriage. Of course, uneducated, those who wish to justify their perversions will try to convince you differently. But Qur’an is clear.

  • No and no.

  • Heather Rose

    Yet, doesn’t a woman need more that one witness b/c her opinion is worth less than a man’s in court? This would make the crime virtually unpunishable as rape tends to be mostly he said she said.

    This is a great article. The only thing I would add is that in the US the idea of the other, non-White and “foreigner” raping the sacred honor of White women is an old trope and can also be connected in this respect.

    “The Birth Of A Nation,” pushed the idea that Black men were animals who would take any opportunity to rape white women.

    Of course on his campaign trail Trump was railing against “illegal immigrants” and casting them and Mexicans as “rapists.” This has also been done to the Chinese and others.

  • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

    There is no permission for rape in Islam or in the Quran. Can you find a verse that allows for forced intercourse?

    The classical Shari’ah condemns rape, ightisab, which is a crime under hiraba, entailing the death penalty.

    The difference is that today Zionist Jews are the main inventors of anti-Muslim lies(plenty of articles on the funding of the Islamphobia industry by them), which have been further spread by their subservient Nazi shoeshine boys.
    There was an article years ago about a Zionist(IDF terrorist) as being the main source of the “All rape in Sweden is by Muslims” lie.

    You know, Milo seems to be very angry and hateful towards Muslims’ ‘sexuality’, especially towards the ‘dangerous’ sexuality of young Syrian refugee men…..

    I think Milo just wishes to get f*cked in the ass by sexy Syrian man and make love with him, no wonder he is so obsessed over them!
