Muslim Mutilation of Women

I saw this on Facebook, got permission from the author to share it here. The Facebook member's name is Mike Bradley (for clarity there is a person at the very end of the last age who is given the description of THE anti-christ, and there is also the "spirit of anti-christ" or a spirit that many people have which is opposed to Christ):

(Dan 11:36) And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

(Dan 11:37) Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, NOR THE DESIRE OF WOMEN, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

"He" is the antichrist, not respecting the "God of his fathers" is referring to the fact that Islam does not respect YHWH, the one, true God of the bible that Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael knew...but instead has Muhammad's god, a pre-Islamic, pagan idol named allah.

The phrase in Daniel 11:37 “desire for of women” has had various interpretations by scholars. From the Hebrew, the word that is translated “desire” in 11:37 is “hemdah”. In Hebrew however, there are various meanings to words according to the context in which they are used. In all of its various meanings, “hemdah” never refers to sexual desire. The Expository Dictionary of Bible Words states:

“Hemdah” is a noun found twenty-five times, with the primary sense of “that which is pleasant, or valuable”

The implication here is that the phrase is not suggesting that the anti-christ has no desire for women, but that he disregards, or thinks little of or is uncaring toward the desires or needs of women.

This happens to fit the Islamic view toward women under Islamic sharia law very well. Historically, Islam has always been uncaring, repressive and hostile toward women. To Muhammad, women were only a belonging, a source of pleasure, amusement or evil. Women in seventh century Islam were oppressed as mercilessly as they are today.

From Islam's corrupt inception, nothing has changed. Woman beating, female genital mutilation, pre-pubescent child marriage and the recent abomination of acid throwing at women all point to Islam devaluing and not considering the emotional, physical and spiritual needs of a woman.

Muhammad’s own words say it best about his view of women.

(Sahih AlBukhari, 5096)“The worst sin and distraction from virtue that I have left for man is woman”

As in the seventh century, today Muslim men blame women for their own lack of sexual restraint. In Islam, it is not the man who is to blame for having lust, but the beauty of a woman. Instead of repenting from sin and not lusting, they impose the use of the Hijaab, the head and face covering, and for the entire body, the burqa. Muslim apologists will try to convince the public (and women converts) that wearing the hijab or burqa is voluntary and honors allah, but the fact that women are regularly beaten in Muslim countries when parts of their body are exposed (like face, or hands) suggests that it is not voluntary, but compulsory.

Muhammad identified the entire body of the woman as a vagina,
(Tirmizi,Volume II, hadith, No. 65)

‘The woman is ‘awrah. When she goes outside (the house), the devil takes charge of her (i.e. possessed her)’

This hadith stated that whenever the woman went out of her house she would be possessed by demons. So she is dangerous to society and hence she should be confined inside her house. There is no definition so widely used and accepted among Muslims for defining the woman than ‘Woman is ‘Awarah.’

The term ‘Awarah is defined in the Encyclopedia of Islam as ‘the external genitals, especially of the female’ (Haqq & Newton 1996: 5). The word is derived from the noun ‘nakedness or nudity.’ So to put it in a simple meaning ‘woman is bare-naked or her whole body is a vagina.’ The prophet Muhammad said, “Even the woman’s voice is awarah (or vagina).”

From this it is understood why the Muslim woman was forced to cover her body from head to foot and not supposed to step out of her house and possibly, to remain silent.

The hijab is just a starting point, the deceptive beginning of a much greater, oppressive domination and enslavement of women that for many, leads to a complete covering and thus, depersonalization. When a woman is fully covered, she ceases to be a person, but is just an object, a faceless, person-less walking, talking vagina. The muslim body coverings thus have nothing to do with modesty but power and depersonalization.

Obviously, the view of women Muhammad had and has left as a legacy for future Muslims is in stark contrast to the Biblical view that upholds the value of women, praising them for their virtue, chaste character and high regard for their role in the family and home and in the church community.

For examples, Miriam, Deborah, Huldah were notable prophetesses in the Old Testament and in the New Testament, Tabitha/Dorcas, Phillip’ two unmarried daughters, Paul’s helpers Euodia & Synteche, Phoebe, Priscilla and Andronicus and Junia were known for being “outstanding among the apostles”. God calls the assembly of saints, His ekklesia, a Bride, adorned, ready, clothed in clean, fine, white linen, indicating spiritual purity and His righteousness surrounded by light without shadow. What a testament of God valuing and appreciating Christian women! They are mighty in the kingdom of God! Worthy of respect! Indeed, God has fearfully and wonderfully made all women. They are all precious in the sight of God.

In contrast, where Muhammad had paranoid fear of women being demons, God entrusted them with His word as prophetesses. When Muhammad says women have half the testimony of a man, the God of the Bible calls women a “helpmate”, an equal partner in the blessing and promise of God. Where Muhammad taught to keep women in submission by fear of being beaten, Jesus demonstrated kindness, gentleness and forgiveness, telling the woman accused of adultery “…neither do I condemn you. Go your way and sin no more”. The God of the Bible says to…

(1Pe 3:7) You husbands in the same way, live with your wives in an understanding way, as with someone weaker, since she is a woman; and show her honor as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered.

Where Muhammad refers to women pejoratively as a vagina (implied to be unclean), God values women so highly that He calls men to…

(Ephesians 5:25-27) "love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish."

We have seen that from within an end times context, one of the distinguishing characteristics of the anti-Christ is that he will have “no regard” for women. This could mean any number of dead beat husbands, manipulative, charming Casanovas throughout history or generally abusive men. However, when other passages are considered that support an Islamic origin for the anti-Christ, this passage describes the typical Islamic view of women under Islamic sharia law. Daniel 11:37 then fulfills the description of the anti-christ himself being the embodiment of lack of care and actual hostility toward women.
