Pornography and the Prophet: Islam, Feminism & the Myth of the “Willing Whore”

The United States is, by far, the world’s largest producer of online pornography, accounting for nearly 25% of all such material. Rounding out the list of the top five porn-producing countries are the United Kingdom (5.5%), Germany (4.9%), Brazil (4.8%) and France (4%). Of the top 15, a dozen are western countries, the three outliers being Japan (3.8%), India (3.2%) and Turkey (1.8%). In total, more than 60% of all online pornography features western performers.

One might think that, given the western provenance of most of this material, it is also being consumed by a predominantly western audience. This, however, is not the case. Some of the world’s top consumers of online pornographic material are, in fact, to be found in Muslim countries. According to Google – by far the most popular search engine used by consumers of online pornography (83.5%) – Pakistan tops the list of countries whose citizens perform pornography-related searches. Of the top 8 such countries, 6 of them are predominantly Muslim states, including Egypt, Iran, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. While many of these countries have strict laws prohibiting the production and consumption of pornographic material, the advent of the smartphone has made controlling porn-related internet traffic virtually impossible – something an increasing number of Muslim men regularly exploit.

Muslims in Pakistan, Iran, Egypt, Malaysia, Indonesia, Turkey, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates also search for beastiality porn more than any other demographic worldwide, with particular interest in donkeys, dogs, horses, cows, goats, snakes, monkeys, elephants and – yes – bears. The deeper one digs into the Google data, the worse it gets: the search term “child porn” is the second most popular porn-related search in Turkey, being topped only by Pakistan, which leads the world in searching for the terms “children sex”, “sexy child”, “sexy children” and, unsurprisingly, “rape”. Other disturbing terms searched in connection with porn include “father daughter” and “bother sister” – ranked numbers 4 and 5 in Syria; “mom” appears in Egypt’s top 10 porn-related search terms. Equally revealing is the finding that the second most common language used to search for homosexual pornography is Arabic, with the terms “gay man”, “gay sex”, “gay girl” and “homo sex” topping the list. In fact, “homo sex” is the top porn-related search term in Indonesia, home to more than 200 million Muslims.

Obviously, pornography is a universal problem. In fairness, depraved Muslims would not be consuming so much pornographic material if depraved westerners were not producing so much of it. Like the Arab sayf ḏū ḥadayn, however, that argument cuts both ways: if Muslim men were not so ready to click links to pornographic sites, increasing their revenue, there would be less such material produced in the West. The simple truth is that no modern culture or society can claim to be spotless when it comes to the scourge of pornography. Some are producers, some are consumers, most want nothing to do with it, but everyone is affected by it in one way or another.

This problem would perhaps remain a largely moral one were it not for the fact that Europe is currently being flooded by men of predominantly Muslim background whose only knowledge of western women is what they have learned by watching internet porn. Khaled Diab of The Guardian reports that porn is largely responsible for the mischaracterization, common among Arab Muslims, of western women as “oversexed, promiscuous and having revolving doors in their knickers.” He states:

In fact, many Arab men, particularly those with little contact with the West, have this fantasy of western women that comes straight out of Playboy magazine or the grainy images of pirate pornos.”

He quotes an Arab friend as saying:

A typical Egyptian male is a firm believer that any western woman is an easy catch and would not mind at all having sex with complete strangers.”

Not wanting to single out Egyptians, Diab reveals that similar views are held all over the Arab Muslim world. One Portuguese colleague told him:

“From my personal experience, the worst Arab men I found were the ones from Saudi Arabia. They think that all foreign women are prostitutes and they try to treat them like that.”

Given that this is the mentality of some – and perhaps many – of the Muslim men currently entering Europe in droves, incidents like the one which took place in Cologne, Germany on New Year’s Eve 2015 – where more than 1,000 women were sexually assaulted and/or harassed by groups of immigrants of African and Arab descent – should surprise no one. While shocking in its extent, the incident is by no means isolated. Wherever Muslim immigration has increased, reports of sexual assault and rape have increased dramatically. Sweden, for example, which has prided itself since the 1970’s on having one of the most immigrant-friendly policies in Europe, is now widely acknowledged to be the rape capital of the West. The Muslim child sexual exploitation rings in Great Britain, in which well over 1,000 young, predominantly western girls were abused as sex slaves by groups of Muslim, predominantly Pakistani men, is but another shocking example of the same phenomenon.

What is perhaps most troubling, however, is the reaction of western political and cultural elites to this growing problem. Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker responded to the New Year’s incident by suggesting that the victims were at least partially to blame for what happened, going so far as to call for guidelines on how western women must change their behavior if they are to avoid such treatment in the future. Professor of Anthropology Dr. Unni Wikan suggested that the sharp increase in cases of rape in her native Sweden was largely due to the provocative manner in which Swedish women dress themselves, saying “Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes,” and “realise that we live in a multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.” To the shame of Great Britain, it has been widely acknowledged that investigators regularly ignored reports made by the victims of the Rotherham child prostitution ring because they worried about the possibility of appearing racist and/or xenophobic toward Pakistani Muslims.

In the rare event of a public figure venturing forward to acknowledge some modicum of responsibility, that acknowledgement invariably takes the form of a collective mea culpa on the part of the West. It is our general failure to be “welcoming” and “open to the other” which is at root of the cultural conflicts currently threatening to tear Europe apart. Even prominent men in the Church have taken up the cause of limitless Muslim immigration, using the humanitarian good will of the European peoples against themselves as the means of their own cultural demise. As German Cardinal Rainer Woelki said while celebrating Mass over a carefully staged seven-meter-long refugee boat perched on the steps of the Cologne Cathedral – mere meters aways from where hundreds of women were sexually assaulted by Muslim immigrants only a few months prior: “Someone who lets people drown in the Mediterranean also drowns God.” Obviously, the Germans have lost nothing of their skill in crafting powerful slogans meant to browbeat the populace into submission.

In a way unforeseen by any of the members of the global financial and political elite, however, the peoples of Europe have begun to push back. One very powerful signal in this regard was the recent vote by 52% of the British electorate to leave the European Union – largely over the issues of border control and immigration policy. Financial independence and national sovereignty, while grand ideals, leave the common man largely untouched. It is when he recognizes an imminent threat to his wife and children that he is compelled to act. The tired self-accusatory excuses of the western liberal left are no longer effective in pacifying the populace in the face of an invading culture of sexual assault and rape.

Blame is to be placed – first and foremost – on the Muslim religion itself. […]

    This buffoon clearly has he same beastly dictionary as Robot.
    Why single out “bears”? Why not elephants?
    “In fairness, depraved Muslims would not be consuming so much pornographic material…”
    What’s “fairness” got to do with depraved Muslims?

    The word “Pornography” comes from the Greek and means “portrayal of prostitutes”.

    Both men and women search for this stuff, but I would guess that men are the major consumers. This is because the sexual appetite of men is very visually driven. Without help from their higher faculties (ie Conscience) men cannot help but look at a woman’s appearance and form a sub-rational evaluation of them as potential sexual partners. This is the way men are constituted by nature.

    (I cannot speak for women’s attraction to men as I am not a woman. I have a vague idea that women are attracted to powerful and protective men, but those qualities are not so much communicated visually).

    The Virgin Mary is presented to the world by the Church as a perfect archetype of perfect womanhood, filled with Grace.

    Why is there such hostility towards the Mother of God? She is our Mother too.

    I suspect the conscience bit kicks in a second or two later than the sexual evaluation. (…If at all.)
