Guardian Defines Feminism as Islamaphobia Print E-mail

When it comes to make a decision over whether to fights for the rights of women or radical Islamists, the Guardian Newspaper of London sides with Islam.

According to the Guardian, "As a person who writes about women's issues, I am constantly being told that Islam is the greatest threat to gender equality in this or any other country – mostly by white men, who always know best. This has been an extraordinary year for feminism, but from the Rochdale grooming case to interminable debates over whether traditional Islamic dress is "empowering" or otherwise, the rhetoric and language of feminism has been co-opted by Islamophobes, who could not care less about women of any creed or colour."

Muslims seek to follow Sharia Law, which is anti-woman. For instance, Sharia demands that Muslim brides obey their husbands at all times.

As reported by the Guardian, "The recent blanket coverage of the "gender segregation on campus" story was a textbook case. This month Student Rights, a pressure group not run by students, released a report vastly exaggerating a suggestion by Universities UK that male and female students might be asked to sit separately in some lectures led by Islamic guest speakers. Many Asian women's groups and individual Muslim feminists joined the subsequent protests, sometimes taking personal risks to do so. Unfortunately, rightwing commentators and tabloids seized upon the issue to imply that Islamic extremists are taking over the British academy."

The Guardian also claims that stories of Muslim husbands beating up their wives are grossly exaggerated.
