BRISBANE woman Sally Faulkner, custodial parent and mother of two children to a Lebanese Muslim husband, who himself illegally took the children to Lebanon, is to be charged herself by the Lebanese court system, with attempting to kidnap them off the streets of Lebanon with the Sixty Minutes, 9 news team.
He gets no repercussions either here or abroad.
He dictates the terms.
The system in Australia has no standing in Lebanon, where the rights of men over the rights of women in custody cases, are written into a religion which discriminates, regardless of Australian law.
Muslim men are empowered by a religion which controls the state. Religion and state are inseparable.
In Australia, custody of small children is at the discretion of family law courts.
In her case, she was awarded custody.
It is similar to the Malaysian ruling in the custody case of the two Gillespie children, who were never returned to their mother.
This is a religion which denies women and children protection from a cruel and barbaric ancient culture, which endorses physical and emotional abuse by their own men.
It ensures the rights of men are always pre-eminent.
It sanctions the denigration of women by men. It has the blessing of imans and cultural icons, allowing the vulnerable to be at the mercy and under the control of men, without rights or protection.
It condones Sharia Law and allows men the freedom to roam, in Western clothing, while denying women the right to live without coverings and outside home without a male.
Sharia Law is the universal ideal which Islam promotes across the globe.
Nations and terror groups under Islamic leadership enforce it, some pedantically, as we see with ISIS.
No amount of negotiation by reasonable Western foreign ministers will bring those children home to their mother here. Their law is etched in medieval stone.
