Of course. What else could possibly account for these rape and sexual assault claims? The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).
Tariq Ramadan, meanwhile, is a pious, believing Muslim. In Islam, it is the woman’s responsibility to cover herself and thereby remove the man’s temptation. If she fails to do so and he sexually assaults or even rapes her, it’s her fault. Moreover, according to Islamic law, a woman’s testimony is not admissible in cases of sexual crime, zina, even if she is the victim. Thus Tariq Ramadan always knew that as far as Islam went, he could deny the charges, and that would be that. And if a woman ever threatened to go to the secular courts, there were ways to deal with that as well: “Two years later he called me to a hotel in the suburbs and then threatened me that he had compromising things on me.”
As Breitbart London reported, ex-Salafist Henda Ayari, 40, who now identifies as a secular feminist, filed a complaint with French authorities last week accusing Mr. Ramadan of sexually harassing her, raping her, and issuing death threats towards her.
“It was the #BalanceTonPorc campaign that pushed me to reveal his name,” she told the Parisien newspaper, in reference to France’s version of the hashtag which means “Expose your pig.”
Two more claimants have since come forward to add their names to the list of those making accusations against the leading Oxford professor.
Mr. Ramadan, grandson of Hassan Al Banna who founded the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, denies any wrong doing and maintains his innocence.
Now journalist Caroline Fourest, who has covered Ramadan’s controversial career, has written in the Marianne weekly that his supporters claim allegations of assault are part of an elaborate “international Zionist plot” to tarnish his reputation. In a column titled “The Double Life of Tariq Ramadan,” she revealed:
Of course, Tariq Ramadan denies all. On social networks, one of his loyal lieutenants already sees an “international Zionist” plot. His fans accuse the victim, a repentant Salafist, of lying and wanting to advertise (enviable as everyone knows). I did not meet her. But what I can testify to is that her story, precise and terrifying, is very similar to that of four other women I met.
In 2007, author Fourest wrote an entire book about the “doublespeak” of Ramadan in her work, Brother Tariq: The Doublespeak of Tariq Ramadan….
