Day of Agreement

Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain and One Law for All are calling on everyone to join the Day of Agreement.

It’s quite easy to do.

On 10 October, upload the day’s logo as your avatar on social media, Tweet #dayofagreement or try it with your colleagues, family and friends.

You can also join our five minute flash-mob at 6pm in central London. (Email for more details).

Just remember, you can’t disagree with anyone – your colleagues, spouse, lover(s), mates, neighbours, children, bosses, or even politicians…

You are not allowed to dissent, ‘offend’ or question.

And before anyone gets too excited, they have to remember that they must also agree with everything you say. It’s only fair…

Seems impossible?

But that is what is expected of those of us who question, criticise or choose to leave Islam, including many Muslims and ex-Muslims…

Try it.

And while it all seems a bit of fun – on October 10 International Day against the Death Penalty – don’t forget that there are many living under Sharia law who are daily facing threats, imprisonment and execution for merely expressing themselves.

    Hey, you should probably have a little word with whoever is responsible for the DNS for ex-muslim.org.uk; it’s broken, and some random proportion of visitors to the site will get a nasty advertising page instead.

      I haven’t seen the advertising page or where it cones from, but indeed, their authoritative NS has issues:

      Yes, yes. Everyone must link to some irrelevant truther horseshit for the Day of Agreement.

      1. Andrew G.

        The bad stuff comes from ns1.1qazost.com, an obvious typo, which belongs to a domainer. That domain only seems to have been registered a bit over a week ago, so the error may have gone unnoticed until then.

        (Just one reason why you should always, always, check the consistency of your NS records)

        @F,Thank you Sir.
        Irrelevant?….you are ignorant and funny..
        You shouldn’t ignore the truth. Because, Mariam Namazie is fighting against Islam. This video is 100% inspiring and helps for the day of AGREEMENT…so this video must be relevant to strengthen her cause and HIGHLY recommended to expose Islam in a right and better way.

    Mariam Namazie : Council of Ex-Muslims of Britain and “One Law for All” are calling on everyone to join the Day of Agreement.

    Me: Why Muslims need Shariah law FOR MUSLIMS “AS A MINIMUM” in USA and UK?

    1)
    Child Abuse in America
    Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect. Every year 3.3 million reports of child abuse are made in the United States involving nearly 6 million children (a report can include multiple children). The United States has the worst record in the industrialized nation – losing five children every day due to abuse-related deaths. 1
    • A report of child abuse is made every ten seconds
    • *More than five children die every day as a result of child abuse.2
    • Approximately 80% of children that die from abuse are under the age of 4. 1
    • It is estimated that between 50-60% of child fatalities due to maltreatment are not recorded as such on death certificates. 3
    • More than 90% of juvenile sexual abuse victims know their perpetrator in some way. 4
    • Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions and at all levels of education.
    • About 30% of abused and neglected children will later abuse their own children, continuing the horrible cycle of abuse. 5
    • About 80% of 21 year olds that were abused as children met criteria for at least one psychological disorder. 5
    • The estimated annual cost of child abuse and neglect in the United States for 2008 is $124 billion. 6

    Violence Against Women in the United States: Statistics
    Despite the fact that advocacy groups like NOW have worked for two decades to halt the epidemic of gender-based violence and sexual assault, the numbers are still shocking. It is time to renew our national pledge, from the President and Congress on down to City Councils all across the nation to END violence against women and men, girls and boys. This effort must also be carried on in workplaces, schools, churches, locker rooms, the military, and in courtrooms, law enforcement, entertainment and the media. NOW pledges to continue our work to end this violence and we hope you will join us in our work.
    MURDER
    In 2005, 1,181 women were murdered by an intimate partner.1 That’s an average of three women every day. Of all the women murdered in the U.S., about one-third were killed by an intimate partner.2
    DOMESTIC VIOLENCE (Intimate Partner Violence or Battering)
    Domestic violence can be defined as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.3 According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, women experience about 4.8 million intimate partner-related physical assaults and rapes every year.4 Less than 20 percent of battered women sought medical treatment following an injury.5
    SEXUAL VIOLENCE
    According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, which includes crimes that were not reported to the police, 232,960 women in the U.S. were raped or sexually assaulted in 2006. That’s more than 600 women every day.6 Other estimates, such as those generated by the FBI, are much lower because they rely on data from law enforcement agencies. A significant number of crimes are never even reported for reasons that include the victim’s feeling that nothing can/will be done and the personal nature of the incident.7
    THE TARGETS
    Young women, low-income women and some minorities are disproportionately victims of domestic violence and rape. Women ages 20-24 are at greatest risk of nonfatal domestic violence8, and women age 24 and under suffer from the highest rates of rape.9 The Justice Department estimates that one in five women will experience rape or attempted rape during their college years, and that less than five percent of these rapes will be reported.10 Income is also a factor: the poorer the household, the higher the rate of domestic violence — with women in the lowest income category experiencing more than six times the rate of nonfatal intimate partner violence as compared to women in the highest income category.11 When we consider race, we see that African-American women face higher rates of domestic violence than white women, and American-Indian women are victimized at a rate more than double that of women of other races.12
    IMPACT ON CHILDREN
    According to the Family Violence Prevention Fund, “growing up in a violent home may be a terrifying and traumatic experience that can affect every aspect of a child’s life, growth and development. . . . children who have been exposed to family violence suffer symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, such as bed-wetting or nightmares, and were at greater risk than their peers of having allergies, asthma, gastrointestinal problems, headaches and flu.” In addition, women who experience physcial abuse as children are at a greater risk of victimization as adults, and men have a far greater (more than double) likelihood of perpetrating abuse. 13

      Logicalthoughts:

      ..and, of course, under sharia rape is seldom reported as the requirement for witnesses make it almost impossible. Or, like in Tunisia recently, rape committed by police is countered by allegations of public indecency by the victim.

      America or Europe are certainly not perfect – but reporting of rape and child abuse is becoming more common – simply because we are trying to do something about it.

      Which countries do more porn searches than anywhere else? Saudi and Pakistan!

      Ask yourself – if sharia is based on “Universal” god-given principles – why are there such divergent practises around the world.. or is this “relativism” just ignored in Islam when inconvenient for your ridiculous, infantile proselyting?

      Or is the real face of “Universal” sharia this disgusting bit of shite – a 14 year-old girl being shot in the head for seeking education for women http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/oct/09/pakistan-girl-shot-activism-swat-taliban

      Logicalthoughts – that’s an oxymoron! You’re one of the most creepy misogynistic and immoral idiots I’ve come across – especially unforgivable as you clearly have a semblance on intelligence.

    logicthoughts, all you have done is post a massive non sequitur.

    The existence of social problems does absolutely nothing to support any suggestion that shariah would help solve them rather than make them worse (like women would be better off under a legal system that explicitly defines their word as worth only a fraction of that of a man. That explicitly defines their right to inherit as a fraction of a man’s. … oh, and there’s such a wonderful human rights record and no stoning or rape or “honor” murders of women in the countries around the world that do have shariah, yes siree).

    Pete p,
    You said: Which countries do more porn searches than anywhere else? Saudi and Pakistan!…

    Me: you didn’t mention who are producing and acting in those porn videos,…. porn and sex shops flourishing in western countries which is totally prohibited in Islamic countries…. internet invites people to watch your devilish porn video’s, the weaker souls get in touch with those things….anyone in KSA,USA,UK ,Africa or Pakistan..

    I need not to respond your other statistics…Taliban’s are extremists, they don’t represent Islam..

    You must think positively about girls’ education in Malaysia, UAE and other advanced Islamic countries… education is free for girls in KSA,UAE and some other Muslim countries.

    I need not to respond your other statistics…Taliban’s are extremists, they don’t represent Islam..

    How about … “honour” murderers are extremists, they don’t represent Islam
    or
    stoning people to death for having extramarital sex is extremist, that doesn’t represent Islam
    or
    accusing rape victims and punishing them instead of the perpetrators is extremist, that doesn’t represent Islam

    Oh, that must be why the nations under shariah are so outspoken in condemning the Taliban! So outspoken in condemning “honour” murderers! So active in bringing “honour” murderers to justice!
    .
    … funny, I must have missed all that outspoken condemnation somehow. It’s almost like it never happened.
