On my wall, I have a picture of a Muslim woman shrouded
in a burka.
Beside it is a picture of an American beauty contestant,
wearing nothing but a bikini.
One woman is totally hidden from the public; the other
is totally exposed. These two extremes say a great deal about the clash of
The role of woman is at the heart of any culture. Apart
from stealing Arab oil, the impending war in the Middle East is about stripping
Arabs of their religion and culture, exchanging the burka for a bikini.
I am not an expert on the condition of Muslim women and
I love feminine beauty too much to advocate the burka here. But I am
defending some of the values that the burka represents for me.
For me, the burka represents a woman’s
consecration to her husband and family. Only they see her.
It affirms the privacy, exclusivity and importance of
the domestic sphere.
The Muslim woman’s focus is her home, the “nest” where
her children are born and reared. She is the “home” maker, the taproot that
sustains the spiritual life of the family, nurturing and training her children,
providing refuge and support to her husband.
In contrast, the bikinied American beauty queen struts
practically naked in front of millions on TV. A feminist, she belongs to
herself. In practice, paradoxically, she is public property. She belongs to
no one and everyone. She shops her body to the highest bidder. She is auctioning
herself all of the time.
In America, the cultural measure of a woman’s value is
her sex appeal. (As this asset depreciates quickly, she is neurotically
obsessed with appearance and plagued by weight problems.)
As an adolescent, her role model is Britney Spears, a
singer whose act approximates a strip tease. From Britney, she learns that she
will be loved only if she gives sex. Thus, she learns to “hook up” rather than
to demand patient courtship and true love. As a result, dozens of males know
her before her husband does. She loses her innocence, which is a part of her
charm. She becomes hardened and calculating. Unable to love, she is unfit to
receive her husband’s seed.
The feminine personality is founded on the emotional
relationship between mother and baby. It is based on nurturing and
self-sacrifice. Masculine nature is founded on the relationship between hunter
and prey. It is based on aggression and reason.
Feminism teaches woman that feminine nature has resulted
in “oppression” and that she should convert to male behavior instead. The
result: a confused and aggressive woman with a large chip on her shoulder,
unfit to become a wife or mother.
This, of course, is the goal of the social engineers at
the NWO: undermine sexual identity and destroy the family, create social and
personal dysfunction, and reduce population. In the “brave new world,” women
are not supposed to be “nest” makers, or progenitors of the race. They are
meant to be neutered autonomous creatures that indulge in sex for physical
pleasure, not for love or procreation.
At his press conference on Sunday, Donald Rumsfeld said
that Iranian women and youth were restive under the rule of the Mullahs. He
implied that the US would soon liberate them. To Britney Spears? To low-rise “see-my-thong”
pants? To the mutual masturbation that passes for sexuality in America?
Parenthood is the pinnacle of human development. It is
the stage when we finally graduate from self-indulgence and become God’s
surrogates: creating and nurturing new life. The New World Order does not want
us to reach this level of maturity. Pornography is the substitute for marriage.
We are to remain stunted: single, sex-starved and self-obsessed.
We are not meant to have a permanent “private” life. We
are to remain lonely and isolated, dependent on consumer products for our
identity, in a state of perpetual courtship.
This is especially destructive for woman. Her sexual
attraction is a function of her fertility. As fertility declines, so does her
sex appeal. If a woman devotes her prime years to becoming “independent,” she
is not likely to find a permanent mate.
Her long-term personal fulfillment and happiness lies in
making marriage and family her first priority.
Feminism is another cruel New World Order hoax that has
debauched American women and despoiled Western civilization. It has ruined
millions of lives and represents a lethal threat to Islam.
I am not advocating the burka but rather some of
the values that it represents, specifically a woman’s consecration to her
future husband and family, and the modesty and dignity this entails...
