Tahitians Protest Threat of First Mosque

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On July 19, 2014 @ 12:50 pm In The Point | 23 Comments




The female literacy rate in French Polynesia is at 97%. And the rate of violence against women there is lower than in much of the Muslim world.

Those are good reasons for women to be worried about the coming of a mosque which will preach hatred and intolerance toward women and non-Muslims.


About 1,000 people in French Polynesia have marched through Papeete in protest at plans to build Tahiti’s first mosque.

The rally was directed mainly at the 23-year-old imam, Hicham El Barkani, who last year set up a prayer room in town, and is now asking for donations from Muslims in France for a Tahiti mosque.

Some demonstrators say his form of Islam is dangerous while some women at the rally have been quoted as saying they fear losing their rights.

As well they should.

Islam is not known for being tolerant of women.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
