  1. Social-Religious Issues

  2. Women In the Qur’an • In the Qur’an, Allah warns the people of women • Allah also states women in the positive sense • Women believe the problem is the interpretation, not in the teachings of Allah

  3. Islamic Women • Many uncomfortable talking about feminism, believe it’s a Western feeling • Men and Women have different roles and rules • Spiritual values, not Godly • Feel liberated by the veil • Don’t believe in equal rights

  4. Western Women • Believe the plights of women in the Middle East appear tenuous • Believe in equal rights and feminist movements • Able to dress freely • Equal to men • Have freedom • Women have individual choices to make

  5. Islamic Extremists-Taliban • Women are beat if they are caught talking in public, or showing skin • Female circumcision • Banned from school only allowed in public with close male relative • Can’t work • No access to healthcare

  6. Iran, Revolution and Khomeini • Khomeini led the Islamic revolution because he perceived himself as the avenger of humiliations • Khomeini also banned all western music because it “dulls” the mind with happiness and ecstasy • Because of Sharia law, a Fatwa was declared on Salman Rushdie

  7. Islamic Resurgence and Western Culture • Most people do not want to adopt technology • Most Muslim people are opposed to Western values • Some Muslims believe the West dominates them • Islamicist Muslims are making a resurgence • Islam is making a comeback in society

  8. Sharia Law, Fundamentalist Approach • Sharia Law is when the written law, like the Qur’an and Hadith are made into civil law, exactly as it is written • Extremists want to replace civil law with Sharia law • Over time, it has been elaborated on by schools of law to fit into life

  9. Terrorism • Terrorists make up a very small part of Islam • Osama Bin Laden is one of the most famous terrorists • Some terrorism is caused because many Muslims feel that America is Anti-Islam

  10. Early History: 1948-1967 • First Arab-Israeli war began on May 14, 1948 • Israeli’s managed to occupy the Negev • Palestinians say Israeli’s forced them out at gunpoint • Approximately 150,000 Arabs remained in Israel after the Independence war

  11. The Hamas and Extremists • Hamas is an acronym that stands for Islamic Resistance Movement (in English) • The Hamas is a Jihadi movement (fighting for a holy purpose) • Hamas mostly is outside Israel, but some Israeli Arabs join it and help perform terrorist acts

  12. Israeli-Arabs’ Complaints About their Civil Right Violations • Some Arab-Muslims say that their human rights are denied and that they feel like second class citizens in Israel • They also say they are discriminated and if there is trouble, Arabs are the first to be blamed • Some say they want to be an equal part of the Israeli society but preserve their Arab identity

  13. Arabs Today In Israel • Arabs make up about 18% of the population-about 1,057,800 out of a total of about 5,757,900 people • They are full citizens of the state, meaning they have the right to vote and they were guaranteed equal religious and civil rights with the Jews

  14. Islam in the West • Islam is a fast growing religion all around the world, but mostly in Britain, America and France • There are over 6,000,000 Muslims in the US • The US practices religious freedom in pluralistic societies that embrace many different religions

  15. Terrorism in the US • Because of so many Muslims in the West there have been many media stereotypes. • Certain Muslims have been found guilty of terrorist acts in the U.S. and Europe in the name of Middle Eastern “Islamicist” causes.

  16. Manners And Social Interaction • Extremely orthodox Muslims in America have certain do’s and don’ts when it comes to social interaction. • But more Liberal Muslims are just like normal Americans only their skin is a different color.
