After Reading Bary’s Book, We Need A Solution

Disclaimer: All names are classified as either generalized or assumed and do not reflect the actual names of Muslims or Americans affected by crime. All real names are well known persons who exist, but are not friends or family relations. Dear Readers, I have a political request for our future presidents to consider. Let’s just say that we need to solve the problem of Isis recruiting young people, of course.  But we also do not have a solution to the problem of keeping Muslim girls in some form of school or college. How do we do this? First, we must recognize what the Reverend Pat Robertson and son Gordon have said on and on again, “Islam is not a religion that always follows a maxim of peace. It tends to hurt women and groom males or men to do the worst things to their daughters, nieces, wives, etc.” Robertson hasn’t said this yet, but he would always point to Islam as a religion of twisted principles, not realizing that such zealous “worship” of Muhammad is bad for American values. We also have to recognize that immigrants who are identified as Muslim have frequently been loyal to these principles, which lead to forcibly marrying girls off at an age deemed as that  of a child, under eighteen; honor based violence; or forcing the girl to undergo FGM, female genital cutting/mutilation. Such radical practices are becoming more and more synonymous with immigrants and with Islam most frequently. The second thing we need to do is set up a few ways for girls in crisis to get the legal help they need. For instance, the well publicized  case of Rifqa Bary, the Sri Lankan immigrant who was threatened for practicing Christianity, sheds light on this issue. We also know of Muslims like Nurr Al-Maleki who was honor killed in Arizona, along with others in Texas, New York, and Illinois. All of the women I just mentioned were in real danger. Here’s what I propose. We need several statutes in federal law recognizing the threat of Terrorism, which I believe we have, but we also have to recognize its impact on females, especially young women. The statute would read something like this: We, the people of the United States, recognize the plight of oppressed women and girls. Let it be recognizable and proper that, if in good faith, a girl under the age of eighteen is under any real danger, and her parents plan to kill or dispose of her by way of marital trafficking, (arranged forced child marriage), that girl is offered the following rights in order that she may pursue life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness by our federal Constitution. 1. A child is any person under the age of eighteen (18) years of age, therefore the person has an automatic right to life, especially a female. 2. Any female child, under the statute specified here, may invoke this bill in order that she receive immediate protection from early marriage, especially if justified by the Holy Books of any established religious practice, 3. The female child may leave her home if her parents express a threat against her life, liberty, or pursuit of happiness without due process as stated in the U.S. Constitution, 4. Any evidence must be used to corroborate the case, and 5. Any threat of honor based violence, especially killing, will result in attempted Murder of the First Degree charges filed against the parent. A. Any failure to cooperate with law enforcement on these provisions will result in automatic charges of child abuse based on gender, attempted murder of the first degree, or child trafficking according to Federal and state penal codes. B. Punishment for noncompliance with the law will result in the same charges and when charged, offenders will face jailtime, fines, and a restraining order against all offending parties to keep the female child safe. Such a statute would lower the numbers, make America safer, and girls would be able to dream. We’d also need to recognize the educational gaps between males and females in these Muslim families.
