Sulfuric Acid: The True Face of Islam

The picture says more than I can in words, and I am an experienced writer. Here is a beautiful woman who was completely disfigured, and who as a result of the attack was put into constant horrible pain. She finally took her life this year. The degenerate who did this to her has not been prosecuted.
And she is far from the only one.
The people who do these kinds of things are the same people who claim that the West does not have morals. I have news for them: The West's morals are far better than theirs. Western men do not throw sulfuric acid on women, and those who do face an extended punishment. Instead the West protects people's rights against those who would do such things. This makes the West vastly morally superior to Middle East. And it is time that more people say so outright.
There are people who rally around patriotism, and there are people who rally around Christianity. But not enough people rally around the West's true superiority to Middle East. This means the social covenants that protect free speech, women's rights and other great cultural and social accomplishments that took place in the West starting in 18th century. And it is by rallying around this - the West's true moral superiority - that the West can do the right thing by its achievements and drive out a threat to these great social accomplishments.
It is these accomplishments that are the true greatness of Western countries. The West does not have people throwing sulfuric acid into their wives' faces and getting away with it. The West does not have 90% of women living in conditions of daily brutality and degradation. The West does not force teenage girls to marry old men. The West does not have men demonstrating against anti-rape laws with signs "We want to rape." In the West, women have rights and liberties. And while there are many in the West who are against these social accomplishments, it is in these social accomplishments that is found the moral superiority of Western countries to Islam.
The Middle East used to house the world's greatest civilizations. But now it is among the worst places in the world. Africa is improving; India is improving; Latin America is improving; East Asia is vastly improving. But Middle East - with exception of a few forward-looking countries such as UAE and Qatar - is continuing its slide into stupidity and brutality.
While there was recently a military operation to depose Muammar Qaddafi, he was the least of Middle East's problems. Lybia under Qaddafi was the wealthiest country in Africa, and it was a country in which many people had rights who didn't have rights elsewhere in the region. The real problem with Middle East is and has always been Islamic fundamentalism. And this is as much the case for countries that elect fundamentalists as it the case for countries in which the Islamists run operations without people's approval.
Nobody less than Thomas Jefferson stated that independence is a privilege of a mature mind. The people who throw sulfuric acid into their wives' faces do not deserve freedom or independence, and the countries that tolerate such behavior do not deserve self-governance. When these places then state that they have ethics and that the rest of the world doesn't, what we see is an outrage and an absurdity. These people have the worst ethics of anyone to be found. A gangster, a thief or a drug dealer has better ethics than do they.
I do not say, as do the relativists, that Muslim ethics do not apply outside Middle East. I say that Muslim ethics are wrong absolutely. I say that Islam is evil. And I say that the Middle East would be able to recover its greatness if it were to do away with Islam as such.
Is that a realistic goal? Maybe yes, maybe no; but I can tell you what is realistic. It is prosecuting men who do such things as throwing sulfuric acid into women's faces. It is making this kind of behavior criminal and enforcing laws against it. And on the part of the West, it is demanding that governments in Middle East prosecute such barbarism and making sure that they do.
As markets for exports of Middle Eastern oil and places where they keep their banking accounts, the West has economic and political pull to demand such a thing. No country deserves to sell anything to Western countries until it stamps out this kind of monstrosity. No country deserves recognition as a country until it stamps out this kind of monstrosity. And no country deserves self-government until it eradicates this evil.
To people who constantly mistake kindness for weakness, only power greater than theirs is a language that they accept. The Islamofascists exploit Western liberal thinking to excuse unjustifiable barbarities and abuses, then they laugh all the way to the mosque and think that they are strong and that the Westerners are all weaklings. Things of such nature cannot be dealt with in a nice way. They must be forcibly eradicated. Only meeting the Islamists at their bestial level will bring about the changes that need to take place in the Middle East.
