Social-Religious Issues

Women In the Quran
  • In the Quran, 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 its a Western feeling
  • Men and Women have different roles and rules
  • Spiritual values, not Godly
  • Feel liberated by the veil
  • Dont believe in equal rights

Western Women

    appear tenuous

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

    Salman Rushdie

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
    Quran 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
  • Israelis managed to occupy the Negev
  • Palestinians say Israelis 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 dos and donts when it comes to social
    interaction.
  • But more Liberal Muslims are just like normal
    Americans only their skin is a different color.
