You know how researchers are keen to analyze the blood chemistry and DNA of survivors of deadly viruses to develop vaccines for the rest of us. The United States Government should be analyzing Nonie Darwish’s blood chemistry and DNA to learn how she escaped the fate of women dehumanized by Islamic police states. Cruel and Usual Punishment exposes the human rights abuses inflicted on women in the name of a totalitarian doctrine which has only the slimmest claim as a religion. That doctrine goes by the name of shari’a, and it is Islam’s constitution.
The unimaginable cruelty of shari’a has festered everywhere it has been enforced for thirteen hundred years but it has been largely neglected in America. Until recently shari’a-adherent Muslims have been content to mutilate, maim, murder, rape, enslave, and humiliate their own women. What’s new now is that they’ve got their sights set on the West, our rights, and our daughters, wives, and mothers. They’ve finally gotten our attention.
Other writers, notably Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, have written about the human rights abuses inherent in shari’a but no other writer has explained it as well as Nonie Darwish. Simply stated, there is no better exegesis for shari’a currently in print. Ms. Darwish approaches the subject as a native Arabic speaker, as a woman, as a survivor, and as a patient researcher. With scrupulous references and original insights she covers the history, the sociology, and the psychology of shar’a. No one before Ms. Darwish has so effectively connected the jihad imperative to the subjugation of women.
The twenty-first century is shaping up as a decisive clash between Western civilization and Islamic barbarism. With the publication of Cruel and Usual Punishment we can’t say we weren’t warned.
