ISIS, the once-mighty and most feared Jihadist gang in the world is on the verge of inevitable doom. The Allies announced today that Iraqi forces captured Tel-Afar, which was really ISIS' last outpost in Iraq. The war on the Eastern Front is pretty much over. Iraqi forces are moving toward the Syrian border where they are expected to form a junction with advancing Allied forces.
ISIS still holds Deir Ezzor and Raqqa and much of the east Syrian Desert, but they suffered a humiliating defeat in the tiny village of Al-Qouriyeh. The background to the story is that the thugs have been abducting teenaged boys and forcing them to serve in ISIS' rapidly-diminishing ranks.
When the 'recruiters' arrived in Al-Qouriyeh, they were apparently met by a mob of angry mothers and other women who attacked and beat the ISIS thugs. During the melee, several ISIS soldiers were relieved of their weapons and least six were killed, including their commander. The remaining Jihadists fled the village, taking with them an unknown number of wounded.
So much for the Feminist and Manospherian lies about women under 'patriarchy'. If the Syrian Civil War has shown us anything, it's illustrated some of the highest qualities of the feminine nature when brought under severe pressure. During the War, we've seen Christian women martyred rather than surrender to ISIS; single women who've adopted war-babies; women salvaging bombed-out schools and teaching classes in caves---and even serving as military auxiliaries to free men to fight at the front.
One of the unsung heroines of the war has been Syrian First Lady Asma Assad. Mrs. Assad was always admired for her elegance, but before the war preferred the role of housewife. She's said to be a rather shy person personally, not really caring much for the public role. The War changed that. In 2014, with ISIS and Al-Qaeda converging on Damascus, Asma captured headlines by refusing to leave the country with her family. She stated that if it was her husband's intention to stay and fight, that she would fight by his side. This stand encouraged numerous Syrian women.
Mrs. Assad has since been active in establishing orphanages and placing Syrian children in families. She's promoted continuing schools in spite of the war and helped raise funds for rebuilding schools in liberated areas. One program she founded in conjunction with Syrian television was to fund and organize weddings for engaged soldiers on leave.
This doesn't mean that Syrian women are 'superwomen'; they are simply the product of a culture where girls are educated to work with and not against their feminine nature. That's what women are capable of doing when they do. Our own pre-Feminist history is full of similar accounts. Women do what they do best when they don't try to do a man's job.
The same is true of the Red Pill phonies who believe that women are useless for more than sex slaves. According to their foolish doctrines of hypergamy, women shouldn't show the type of loyalty and patriotism that Syrian women have shown. Nor, according to their extremist positions on submission, should they have resisted ISIS anyway.
Fortunately, thanks to Allied efforts and Trump's reversal of Obama's Syria Policy, American women will never have to face ISIS like Syrian women did. But it would be worthwhile if they cultivated the same spirit again.
Pretty woman! Thanks for introducing us to her. Women can be amazing, remarkable under pressure, especially when we embrace our own nature. Smart men have always known this. To dismiss or devalue women is really to cut yourself off from a valuable resource, from a great ally.ReplyDelete
Thank you and that's a very insightful comment. I've been following Asma for a long time and she is a remarkable person. She reminds me of Melania Trump in a lot of ways, especially the way she empathizes with people.Delete
I remember reading a story about Asma visiting a girl's orphanage. She was looking at some hand-made dolls the little girls had made. She ended up staying all day; teaching the girls how to do their hair, telling them stories of her childhood and things.
