Ruthless, Savage Punishments of Political Islam — Invoke Nemesis, Don’t Invite Your Enemy to Dinner

June 26, 2009

Not Twitter but AP seems to have brought us his contorted face:

Iranian senior hard-line cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, delivers a Friday “AP – Iranian senior hard-line cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami, delivers a Friday prayer sermon, at the Tehran University …”

Parisa Hafezi Parisa Hafezi TEHRAN (Reuters) – bottom-lined the purpose of the so-called prayer sermon:
… “I want the judiciary to … punish leading rioters firmly and without showing any mercy to teach everyone a lesson,” Ahmad Khatami told worshippers at Tehran University. …Khatami … said the judiciary should charge the leading “rioters” as being “mohareb” or one who wages war against God.

“They should be punished ruthlessly and savagely,” he said.  Under Iran’s Islamic law, punishment for people convicted as mohareb is execution.

In other words, the Ayatollah wants to kill them.  Ruthlessly and savagely. Stripped down and available for all to see, political Islam’s message today in Iran is the following:
Kill them — for wanting their votes to count;  Kill them  (the “they” who “should be punished ruthlessly and savagely” according to the Ayatollah because of “war;”   Kill them for a war where dominant males define what they want as “God” and project their own demonic behavior upon others who wish to be free of them.   (Click on this blog’s category of “Demonic Males” not as woo-woo religious concept but as hard, Harvard science about male destructiveness and violence relevant to human society.)
Don’t call it spiritual, don’t call it justice, don’t invite it to dinner.  Political Islam needs an invocation of Nemesis spiritually to end its reign. (Click on category, Nemesis.)
Political Islam will never be a friend to any freedom-lover (and that goes double for its whammy against the lives of women as women, religiously designated an underclass by male trauma for male control — not that fundamentalist Christianity and all other male-designed fundamentalist religions do not also oppress women as women, inherent to maintaining sexual politics around the globe).
It’s not that political Islam is the only politics against which Nemesis ought be spiritually invoked.
It’s just that political Islam does not dress up its hatreds in hypocrisy, making the hating easier to see for what it is, in the longest war.

Psych-drugging as longest war tactic: the girls’ gulag

Demonic Males” ( see post below) … Demonic Males: Apes and the Origins of Human Violence by Richard Wrangham

… invented psychiatry as used to marginalize women’s inherent dissonance with being the gender underclass and, more famously, to diagnose and drug Soviet dissidents from the USSR’s politics in gulags during that regime.  What I just wrote is a statement, a rhetorical summary of something that seems true to me.  Believing in a dissident’s or a woman’s “disability” as psychiatrically defined and then psych-drugged (when politically and sexually motivated) is therefore not for me.  Having said that, it’s because I trust female genius (and dislike what the man-made dominator system has done to the world) far too much to buy in to the predominant male theories of female mental dyfunction.  But then, I’m no M.D.; and I’ll blog more about psych-drugging another night.

Meanwhile, I’ve had what may be some better thoughts about my Sheila Jeffreys coverage and modified the She’s-my-Hero post which was prompted by a self-described feminist’s blog  which has a category for “Sheila Fu#$ing Jeffreys,” minus my redaction by symbols.   There’s no point in going back and forth on this in the divide-and-conquer game established by patriarchy.

Until I return to the topic of psych-drugging, here’s a book cover from a M.D. (Dr. Peter Breggin), another man who’s no fan of the gulag. Toxic Psychiatry Toxic Psychiatry

“Demonic Males”: Science text by a Harvard man about males and male-dominator violence

June 12, 2009

Demonic Males:  Does the title say it all?  (Not demonic as in woo-woo religion but demonically bad behavior from an anthropological and zoological standpoint of research by top-level scientific male minds.)  In a male-violent world like ours  …

… could the answer to surviving and thriving  be as simple as to put women in charge?    More from Harvard  on the subject:  http://www.harvardmag.com/jf97/right.chimp.html.  But seriously, in a world like ours, how is putting women in charge going  to happen when the big-3 man-God religions which subordinate womankind have now been invoked by President Obama as a field of unification among men worldwide from Christian, Jewish and Islamic cultures? For days I made cell-phone calls for the guy using my laptop in his e-campaign to win swing states, and my daughter still holds on to the hope —  but I’m starting to wonder if the girls are once again going to be sold out by the big boys’ club.  Click to the prior post about the problem in the category, “President Obama.”

As to Demonic Males in general as a global gender group, it is my job on this blog to say more, so after reading the book it’s my commentary that:  (1)  the s/he hyena analysis of Demonic Males seemed far-fetched toward a male author’s need to implicate the females of some species in evolutionary violence, and (2) the analysis of buddy-bonded bands of bisexual female bonobos seemed skewed to say less about primate sisterhood than an anthropomorphized sort of soft-core primate-porn.
