Antisemitism and misogyny go hand in glove in the Islamic religion

In this op-ed on Israel National News, they explore the paralells and similarities antisemitism and misogyny have in the Islamic world:
As a Jewish American female journalist, I have noticed that in not a few instances, there appears to be a parallel between anti-Semitism and gender-based discrimination in our region of the world. It seems that many of the same Middle Eastern dictatorships that systematically promote anti-Semitic rhetoric often engage in misogynist behavior and systematically discriminate or display barbaric cruelty against women.

MEMRI recently reported that Yemenite political analyst Salim Al Muntaser stated that peace between Israel and the Western powers will only come about once “the Zionist entity is removed” and that Tel Aviv will be targeted by missiles “from Yemen.” Such rhetoric is not surprising, given that the Houthis govern most of Yemen now and they are known for their anti-Semitic ideology.

Yet at the same time, Yemen is one of the worst countries in which to be a woman. Yemeni women are forced to wear niqab, suffer from child marriages, domestic violence, honor crimes and a series of other indignities, which have only gotten worse since the Houthis rose to prominence during the Yemeni Civil War.

As one Yemeni woman told Amnesty International: “I was traveling with three children when we were stopped at a checkpoint by Houthi forces. They detained us, with no food and water during very hot weather. We begged them to let us pass but they refused. They insulted us and threatened us with rape. We panicked and started crying… when they were done with us, they left us on the street at night in a secluded and isolated area… We were afraid, and the children terrified.” Recently, the UN Security Council employed sanctions on top Yemeni Houthi officials for engaging in “intimidation, systematic arrests, detentions, torture, sexual violence and rape against politically active women.”

The same arguments that were made above regarding Yemen can also be made about the Islamic Republic of Iran. In recent days, the State of Israel blamed Iran for an oil spill off the coast of the Jewish state, which caused the greatest environmental disaster that the country has seen in recent years. Iran, a country that routinely chants “death to Israel,” also was reportedly behind an attack on an Israeli-owned ship in the Persian Gulf. They are also building nuclear weapons, which could be used against Israel at a future date.

Yet just as much as Iran attacks the Jewish state, they also harm the women in their country. In the Islamic Republic of Iran, it is illegal to execute virgins, so women on death row are systematically raped before they are slaughtered. Further, mandatory hijab is official state policy. In honor of International Women’s Day, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that the United States will grant a special Women of Courage Award to Shohreh Bayat, an Iranian female chess player who went into exile following her decision to violate her country’s dress code.
That still doesn't excuse the lenient approach fraudulent Joe Biden's taking to dealing with Iran, and it doesn't look like his phony administration will take any proper action against Yemen either. For now, this article does give some vital insight into how antisemites can also be some of the worst misogynists.
