Memri writes-Turkish News Outlets Call For Funding For Omar
In his article, Dr. Cherkaoui wrote that “donating money to Omar’s campaign fund would be an adequate way of denying powerful organizations the power to censor alternative voices.” The article, which originally appeared in Yeni Şafak, was also published, with the same call for funds, on both the English- and Turkish-language websites of Turkish state-run news wire Anadolu Agency, the website of the Turkish state-run TRT World’s Research Centre, and the Turkish news websites TimeTurk, Haksöz Haber, TürkHaber, and Fikriyat.
It is difficult to calculate the reach that this call has had among Turkish readers, but Yeni Şafak’s Turkish-language website is one of Turkey’s most popular news websites, and, as of September 2018, its Turkish print edition had a weekly circulation of 111,622. Given Omar’s popularity in Turkey, and that the article was published in Turkish as well as in English, it is likely that some Turks have sought to donate to Rep. Omar’s campaign fund.
Despite the record of Islam with FGM, it’s all quiet on the #MeToo front. Turkey, the exemplar of the modern Muslim state. You might think well this is Turkey, but I live in the United States. I say everything changed when Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib got elected to Congress. Both Congressional representatives have refused to condemn FGM (female genital mutilation.) Hollywood actresses at the forefront of the #metoo like Alyssa Milano refuse to condemn it. Watch video of Laura Loomer confronting her.
Under Islamic law, rape victims are tortured, imprisoned or killed unless they agree to marry their rapist. “Marry-your-rapist” bills have been seen across the Muslim world and are pushed in the name of protecting and safeguarding family “honour”.
‘MARRY-YOUR-RAPIST’ BILL TO BE INTRODUCED BY LAWMAKERS IN TURKEY
CRITICS ARGUE LEGISLATION LEGITIMISES CHILD MARRIAGE AND STATUTORY RAPE
By Maya Oppenheim, The Independent, January 2020:
A law which would allow men accused of having sex with girls who are under 18 to avoid punishment if they marry their victims is set to be introduced to parliament in Turkey.
The controversial so-called “marry-your-rapist” bill, which lawmakers are planning to introduce to Turkish parliament at the end of January, has sparked fury among women’s rights campaigners in the country.
Critics argue the legislation, which the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) is urging the government to axe, not only legitimises child marriage and statutory rape but also paves the way for child abuse and sexual exploitation.
A similar bill was defeated in Turkey in 2016 after national and global outrage. The legislation would have only pardoned men if they had sex without “force or threat”.
United Nations agencies warned the bill would generate a landscape of impunity for child abuse and leave victims vulnerable to experiencing additional mistreatment and distress from their assailants.
“Marry-your-rapist” bills have been seen across the world and are pushed in the name of protecting and safeguarding family “honour”.
With Bernie Sanders leading the Democrat field for the presidential primaries, Sanders has said he will put AOC, who is an admitted Communist and Jew hater, in a prominent position of power. Among the left shocking policies that we never thought possible in the U.S. are becoming promoted from the radical left.
This is why Laura Loomer decided to run for Congress. She announced her campaign launch last August. She’s running in President Trump’s home district. I promote Loomer’s campaign on social media because Loomer is deplatformed and President Trump retweeted a tweet of mine on 12/28/19 in support of Loomer. She’s running against Pelosi crony, Lois Frankel, so it will be a heavily contested fight.
Because Loomer has built her reputation for going after corrupt politicians and jihadists, she has garnered many high profile endorsements from personalities such as Judge Jeanine, Michelle Malkin, Brandon Straka, Terrence Williams, Chuck Woolery, the Limbaugh team, and many, many more. They like her fearless attitude and relentless pursuit for justice. You can support her campaign at https://secure.lauraloomerforcongress.com/jr
Suad Abu-Dayyeh, a campaigner who specialises in the Middle East, North Africa, Afghanistan, and Pakistan for Equality Now, a non government organisation which aims to promote the rights of women and girls, said it was “shocking” politicians are trying to pass a bill that “provides impunity for perpetrators of child sexual exploitation”.
She told The Independent: “I applaud the brave work of women’s rights campaigners in Turkey who are taking a stand against this discriminatory bill and pushing back again regressive forces that are seeking to remove current legal protections for girls. Similar ‘marry-your-rapist’ legal provisions have been on the statute books of countries across the Middle East and North Africa.
“Thanks to years of campaigning by women’s rights activists and lawmakers, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia, and Palestine have all removed these loopholes in recent years. Rather than attempting to introduce legislation that harms women’s rights and protections, Turkish lawmakers should take heed of these advances in repealing gender discriminatory laws.”
While the legal age of consent is 18 in Turkey, a 2018 government report on child marriage estimates a total of 482,908 girls were married in the last decade.Violence against women and girls is prevalent in Turkey – with 38 per cent of Turkish women having suffered physical or sexual violence from a partner according to the United Nations.
A campaign group called We Will Stop Femicide estimates some 409 women were murdered by a partner or a family member in the country in 2017 – a stark rise from the total of 237 four years beforehand.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said equality between men and women is “against nature” at a summit in Istanbul back in 2014.
The world leader said: “You cannot put women and men on an equal footing. It is against nature.”
He urged women to have at least three children and argued a woman’s life was “incomplete” if she did not reproduce back in 2016.
“A woman who says ‘because I am working I will not be a mother’ is actually denying her feminity,” he said. “A women who rejects motherhood, who refrains from being around the house, however successful her working life is, is deficient, is incomplete”.
