Following the media report where it has been suggested that the Libyan Islamic Cleric is calling on all Muslims to reject the United Nations document on women’s right because it goes against Islamic laws, is counterproductive.

Islamic laws have no religious basis in which to determine the rights of women.  God gave the rules to govern nations to Isaacs and not Ishmael therefore any rules that is enacted by the Islamic faith is man-made and not with the authority of God.

If God did not believe that women played an important role in society he would not state in Genesis 17 verse 16 “ And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her”.   These are the direct words of God are regarding the blessing that he bestowed upon women.

In order to understand where these so-call self-appointed Islamic Cleric are coming from and where they acquire their archaic beliefs one have to always go back to the book of Genesis and the birth of Ishmael and Isaacs.

Although God created both nations of Ishmael and Isaacs he told Ishmael mother, Genesis 16 verse 11 – 12, “And the Angel of the Lord said unto her, Behold, thou are with child, and shall bear a son, and shall call his name Ishmael; because the Lord hath heard thy affliction.

“And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren”.

If you understand the creation of both the Arab and Jewish nations coming from Ishmael and Isaacs, then you understand that Isaacs was God’s chosen child and therefore none of the so-called Islamic laws are worth anything as they were formulated by an individual that God did not ordain to do so and once you understand that concept you then realize that those laws are not only counterproductive they go against every rule that God ordained us to live by.
