Ben Shapiro at Big Peace
reports that the Iranian terrorists who tried to murder Israeli diplomats in Thailand visited brothels prior to their capture. On FOX News
The Iranians hung out with several female sex workers during their stay there, and one of the women was brought to Bangkok to identify the suspects on Thursday, said Lt. Col. Noppon Kuldiloke, a senior immigration police investigator in southern Thailand.
This seems to be part of a pattern that some jihadists will trip to a red light district, and it's something that authorities in other parts of the western world need to pay careful attention to as well. And as Shapiro says:
The hypocrisy here is breathtaking, of course. But let’s not fall into the ideological trap that suggests that radical Muslims engage prostitutes and plant bombs because they’re simultaneously attracted and repulsed by Western permissiveness. They plant bombs and visit prostitutes largely because they hate women. They don’t see prostitution as female empowerment – they see it for what it is, degradation of females. And they love it for that, since they’re sexists.
Contrary to popular opinion, the problem with the radical Muslim world isn’t that it’s undersexed – it’s that it has no respect for women as independent, freethinking human beings. Want to fight Islamism? Don’t send them hookers. Teach them to respect strong women who respect themselves.
And also teach them why violence against women is abominable and unacceptable.
