PC Europe Now Blaming Women for Provoking Muslim Rapists

Concludes the author of Byzantium Viewed by the Arabs:

While the one quality that our [Muslim] sources never deny is the beauty of Byzantine women, the image that they create in describing these women is anything but beautiful.

Their depictions are, occasionally, excessive, virtually caricatures, overwhelmingly negative.

Such anecdotes [of sexual promiscuity] are clearly far from Byzantine reality and must be recognized for what they are: attempts to denigrate and defame a rival culture through their exaggeration of the laxity with which Byzantine culture dealt with its women.

In fact, in Byzantium, women were expected to be retiring, shy, modest, and devoted to their families and religious observances.

[T]he behavior of most women in Byzantium was a far cry from the depictions that appear in Arabic sources.

Little has changed some 1400 years after the founding of Islam: European women continue to be seen as naturally promiscuous and guilty of provoking Muslim men into raping them.

After the endemic sexual abuse of native British women at the hands of Muslims was revealed, a Muslim imam in the UK confessed what Muslim men are taught:

[Women are] second-class citizens, little more than chattels or possessions over whom they have absolute authority …

[What imams preach] denigrates all women, but treats [non-Muslim] whites with particular contempt.

Last December in the UK, a Muslim father of four “dragged a young pub worker off the street and raped her for three hours, while telling her ‘you white women are good at it.’”

Another Muslim called a 13-year-old British virgin “a little white slag” -- British slang for “loose, promiscuous woman” -- before raping her.

This mentality is hardly limited to Britain. A Muslim man who almost killed his 25-year-old German victim while raping her -- to shouts of “Allah!” -- asked if she enjoyed it afterwards.

Another Muslim migrant said that “German girls are just there for sex.”

In Austria, an “Arabic-looking man” approached a 27-year-old woman at a bus stop, pulled down his pants, and “all he could say was sex, sex, sex,” until the woman screamed and he fled.

The ancient Islamic motif concerning the alleged promiscuity of European women is alive and well, and continues justifying the Muslim rape of Western women.

And even on this issue, Islam can turn to its Leftist allies for cover.

Just as the Left has struggled long and hard to portray Islamic intolerance, violence, and terrorism as the West’s fault -- because of the Crusades, because of colonialism, because of Israel, because of cartoons, because of freedom of speech, etc. -- the left now adds “Western promiscuity” to the list of things that provoke Muslims to acts of violence, and worse.
