Amidst the unfolding litany of scandals involving men accused of sexually harassing and/or abusing women, there is a curious void – a kind of black hole for revelations and commentary. No mention is made about the fact that there is present around the world, including here in the U.S., an institutionalized mistreatment of females of all ages.

That would be the Islamic totalitarian code its adherents call Shariah. Among other things, it condones — and in some cases makes obligatory — such horrifically misogynistic practices as wife-beating, marital rape, child marriages, female genital mutilation and so-called "honor killings."

If we have reached the point where prominent politicians like Rep. John Conyers, journalists and other celebrities are no longer going to get away with groping and assaulting women and girls, surely we must not tolerate such behavior conducted systematically under the pretext of religious practice.
