Western influencers ignore Iranian and Afghan Muslim women


In recent months the world has witnessed the totalitarian, Islamic theocracies of Iran and Afghanistan wallow in the absolute excrements of moral indecency. Both governments have reverted to sub human, medieval Islamic religious practice, treating all teenage and adult women with the contempt and barbarity their form of Islam demands. The attempts by these Islamo-fascist regimes are being challenged internally but at a huge cost and consequential human suffering.

Demands on dress codes in Iran and the banning of education for women in Afghanistan are the newly imposed Government Islamic demands.

Opposition often ends in execution, incarceration, torture and threats to family members.

The Iranian protests are developing into a movement that could end the reign of the misogynistic Mullahs and to date hundreds of demonstrators have been killed by Iranian forces and scores publicly executed or butchered in Iran’s notorious prisons. Meanwhile the Taliban rulers in Afghanistan have managed to quell the protests with the occasional demonstrator death. Taking advantage of the chaos, other Islamic enemies of the Taliban are using the situation to increase havoc by exploding car bombs in the streets of the main cities. Scores have been killed in the last few months. The mainstream media in the UK have virtually ignored these totalitarian theocracies and the resulting barbarities. British Iranian dissidents have organized a recent protest which the UK media all but ignored.

The plight of Afghan and Iranian Muslim women seems to have no concerns either to Muslims in the United Kingdom whose silence is deafening. No street protests, no car convoys, no presentations to Parliament and no Muslim influencers defending Muslim women’s rights. Thus, inertia reigns from our television news, usually so intent on exposing anti-Islamic behavior. Muslims of influence such as Members of Parliament, television presenters, Islamic religious leaders, journalists and celebrities have all maintained the highest levels of disinterest. They have totally ignored the plight of Iranian and Afghan Muslim women and such silence is surely assent.

One would have imagined that protests, demonstrations, media outrage , Parliamentary speeches, television coverage and other pressures would be a common , ongoing theme emanating from Muslims with profile,  both men and women within the United Kingdom to protest against the atrocities suffered by their co – religionists . So why the silence of those who normally would be outraged at such atrocities against Muslims? The answer is simply that when Islamic countries undertake barbarities, Muslims in this country have no will or want to criticize. It is only when Muslims are perceived to be suffering at the hands of non-Muslims, only then is such foul behavior shouted from the rooftops and assisted by a willing media. Could you just imagine the outcry if Israel or India imposed similar restrictions on Muslim women as is happening in Iran or Afghanistan?  Such news would be given saturation coverage.

Let’s expose the individuals who remain silent.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, quite vociferous and imaginative on geopolitical issues as with his flying pig, anti-Trump campaign which hit London surely could and should have something to say. Our woman Muslim Members of Parliament in both the Commons (e.g. Ali, Qureshi, Shah, or Khan) and Lords (e.g. Baroness Warsi) might have opened their mouths.

Our Muslim TV presenters (e.g. Adil Ray) could and should have something to say. Indeed, those that are usually so willing to condemn Islamophobia at every opportunity such as the Labour left have also remained silent on the Iran and Afghanistan issue. But why? Perhaps it is connected to how the subservient sycophants of the left of British politics pandered (having been paid) to spew anti-Western vomit on the Iranian propaganda channel Press TV.  Perhaps too the silence is driven by other factors such as western Muslim selectivity and cowardice assisted by our mainstream media. What do I mean by this? Let’s take some examples to elaborate.

When Pakistani Muslim pedophiles were raping children in the northern cities of Rotherham, Rochdale and others our media was silent as were the co – religionists of the criminals. Ongoing for decades and known to the police the child rapists were therefore actually protected by their co-religionists and by mainstream media. Even when the pedophile outrage became a story no media channel could ignore, mainstream media referred to the pedophiles as Asian. This could mean, Japanese, Taiwanese, Cambodian or Indonesian or other such nationalities. The Pakistani element was purposely hidden as this would clearly indicate and expose a Muslim connection.

Similarly, if one is knowledgeable of current affairs in Africa, no day passes without an atrocity being inflicted by Islamists on non-Muslim, indigenous black Africans. Niger, Mali, Burkino Faso and Somalia regularly suffer slaughter of their civilians by Islamist militias but such stories are never reported by UK mainstream media and never raised as an issue in our Parliament.

What is the common denominator linking the human suffering of British, female children, black indigenous Africans and Muslim women in Iran and Afghanistan? What is the common denominator which determines those suffering and their plight is not given the deserving media attention? And what is the common denominator ensuring the silence of influencers from the Muslim community?  It is the very same common denominator that ensured apartheid and slavery in Pakistan and Mauritania, as just two examples, perpetrated on indigenous black African communities, the Sheedi and Haratines was never a media issue. This despite the continuation of morally indecent behavior inflicted against those communities as I write. The denominator is that human atrocities inflicted by those of the Islamic faith are ignored, left unexposed and not a subject for debate.

BLiTZ will not shy away from exposing the truth.
