Benghazi Feminist Opponent of Hijab, Muslim Brotherhood, Murdered

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On June 26, 2014 @ 7:38 pm In The Point | 3 Comments




Obama bombed Libya to protect the people of Benghazi. That seems to have worked out really well for the Islamic militias he wanted to aid and badly for anyone wasn’t in an Islamic militia.


Salwa Bugaighis was one of small group of lawyers who protested outside the north courthouse in Benghazi in February 2011. She was the most prominent female revolutionary and we all interviewed her many times.

She has been described as one of the bravest women in Libya and not even death threats could stop her from voting in Wednesday’s elections.

The lawyer was shot and stabbed on the day of the general election, an exercise in democracy. A group of five masked men, carrying Kalashnikovs, burst into the house in the eastern city of Benghazi, shooting a guard at the gate. Ms Bugaighis was taken to hospital where she died from her injuries.

The ceaseless campaign Salwa Bugaighis carried out for women’s rights led to her being condemned by jihadist groups, as well as by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Grand Mufti, Al-Sadiq al-Gharyani. She repeatedly stressed that she was a follower of Islam, but spoke out against the hijab, arguing there was nothing in the faith demanding that women should cover themselves entirely, and rarely even wore a headscarf herself.

Iman Bugaighis, an orthodontist by profession, said, “They say it’s about religion, but we are Muslims ourselves as you know. How have we reached this place where a difference of opinion about headscarves ends in someone being killed?”

That’s Islam. It was always in this place.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
