Caitlyn Jenner says, “I can handle anything”. Can she handle stoning?
Women are executed by public stoning in many Muslim countries under sharia (Islamic) law. Jews (including small children and infants) are frequently stoned in their sacred, ancestral homeland often with lethal results by Arabs. Apparently, the practice is now being introduced into Western Europe, perpetrated by Muslim migrants against Transgender women in Germany.
Yasmine and Elisa, two Transgender women living in the German city of Dortmund, were stoned by three North African men. The Jerusalem Post describes Yasmine’s reaction as reported in the media,
…she could not believe that such an act of shamelessness occurred.“In 2016, in Germany, with stoning!” According to the SATI.NRW report, Yasmine said it was the first time in 30 years she felt unsafe as a transgender woman.
The perpetrators, who had previously been arrested for assault, told German authorities, “such persons must be stoned.”
Here’s an opportunity for Caitlyn Jenner, America’s most celebrated Transgender woman, to display some of her renown courage. To speak out…given her ability to “handle anything”.
Perhaps she’ll be joined by Rachel Maddow?
How about Amy Goodman?
Alas. If only they could.
Unfortunately, one of the two Transgender German woman had the temerity to call their attackers “barbarians” — an obviously racist, Islamophobic slur, no doubt suggestive of certain far-right, zenophobic leanings.
Responding to criticisms of the demographic blitzkrieg she has inflicted on Europe, German Chancellor Angela Merkel was clear when she said:
“Given the circumstances of globalization, I’m calling on us to open up to a certain extent and to become acquainted with different cultural characteristics”
Clearly, for the greater good, Transgender women in the West need to heed the words of the German Chancellor and show less prejudice; display greater openness for the values and beliefs of other cultures that maintain people such as themselves “must be stoned”.
Perhaps a compromise could be made wherein Transgender women can, like other women in the Islamic world (which apparently now includes Germany), wear the hijab, or better still, a burka, so as not to flaunt, publicly at least, their female sexuality–so as not to arouse the tender sensibilities of Muslim men that might lead them to hurl stones.
North African men suspected of stoning transgender women in German city
by Benjamin Weinthal, Jerusalem Post, January 16, 2016:
BERLIN — Three young men from North Africa were arrested on Saturday in the western German city of Dortmund for stoning two transgender women.
According to a report on Friday on television station SAT1.NRW, the men attacked Yasmine und Elisa, two transgender women, near the city’s main train station.
“Within seconds we were tossed around…and they took stones from a gravel bed on the corner and threw them at us,” said Elisa.
A police car appeared at the train station as the stoning attack unfolded and arrested the men.
The German media as a general rule do not disclose the last names of victims to protect their privacy. The three men are between 16 and 18 years-old and are known to the authorities from theft and assault arrests.
Dortmund police official Kim-Ben Freigang said the suspects told the police that “such persons must be stoned.”
Yasmine installed a security camera at the residence where she lives with Elisa after the attacks. “That was barbaric what they did. They are barbarians,” Yasmine said.
She added that she could not believe that such an act of shamelessness occurred. “In 2016, in Germany, with stoning!” According to the SATI.NRW report, Yasmine said it was the first time in 30 years she felt unsafe as a transgender woman.
According to Yasmine and Elisa, the three young men propositioned them, but after they realized that Yasmine and Elisa are transgender women, they attacked them with stones.
Stoning people to death is a penalty used in nine Muslim-majority countries. In November, a criminal court in Iran’s northern province of Gilan sentenced a woman to be executed by stoning for alleged complicity in the murder of her husband, Arash Babaieepour Tabrizinejad….
Lethal homophobia is widespread in the Arab world and Iran. A 2008 British Wikileaks dispatch noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran has executed “between 4,000 and 6,000 gays and lesbians” since the Islamic revolution in 1979.
Islamic State has murdered dozens of gays by tossing the men off buildings. Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen and Qatar, to name just some of the most anti-gay countries, persecute LGBTs with the death penalty and imprisonment.
