Fallacious Comparison Unveiled Introduction: Christianity, Judaism and Islam are great Abrahamic religions, While there are many differences, there are also many commonalities, which can form basis for mutual peaceful coexistence, Allah says:
The article described the furious reactions of the participants of a conference on women and power held in Montreal to the comments of the famous Egyptian feminist Dr. Her "politically incorrect" statements included: The participants could not bear sitting around while their faiths were being equated with Islam.
Saadawi received a barrage of criticism. Saadawi's comments are unacceptable. Her answers reveal a lack of understanding about other people's faiths," declared Bernice Dubois of the World Movement of Mothers.
I was not surprised that the conference participants had held such a negative view of Islam, especially when women's issues were involved. In the West, Islam is believed to be the symbol of the subordination of women par excellence.
In order to understand how firm this belief is, it is enough to mention that the Minister of Education in France, the land of Voltaire, has recently ordered the expulsion of all young Muslim women wearing the veil from French schools! The scene of French policemen preventing young Muslim women wearing headscarves from entering their high school is unforgettable.
It inspires the memories of another equally disgraceful scene of Governor George Wallace of Alabama in standing in front of a school gate trying to block the entrance of black students in order to prevent the desegregation of Alabama's schools.
The difference between the two scenes is that the black students had the sympathy of so many people in the U. President Kennedy sent the U. National Guard to force the entry of the black students. The Muslim girls, on the other hand, received no help from any one.
Their cause seems to have very little sympathy either inside or outside France. The reason is the widespread misunderstanding and fear of anything Islamic in the world today. What intrigued me the most about the Montreal conference was one question: Were the statements made by Saadawi, or any of her critics, factual?
In other words, do Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have the same conception of women? Are they different in their conceptions? Do Judaism and Christianitytruly, offer women a better treatment than Islam does? What is the Truth? It is not easy to search for and find answers to these difficult questions.
The first difficulty is that one has to be fair and objective or, at least, do one's utmost to be so. This is what Islam teaches. The Quran has instructed Muslims to say the truth even if those who are very close to them do not like it: The other great difficulty is the overwhelming breadth of the subject.
Therefore, during the last few years, I have spent many hours reading the Bible, The Encyclopaedia of Religion, and the Encyclopaedia Judaica searching for answers. I have also read several books discussing the position of women in different religions written by scholars, apologists, and critics.
The material presented in the following chapters represents the important findings of this humble research. I don't claim to be absolutely objective.Islamophobia – Antidote.
