This has been the answer given by British Muslims to Minabe, the Advisory Council of Mosques and Imams, created after the attacks of 7 / J in London:
The women “should be home” and stay out of negotiations in the places of worship which, in fact, have even banned their entry. But Mohammed Nadeem’s opinion is not anecdotal nor reporters sought a refractory to illustrate his story.
Both the imams and the governing bodies of British mosques have flatly rejected the attempt by a semiofficial organization composed of Muslims who sought to foster the participation of women at least in the management of places of Islamic worship. It also wanted that at least sermons would be conducted in English and not Arabic.
… “From an Islamic point of view, prayer is invalid if it is not in Arabic. ” End of discussion. Or at least, end of discussion for most of British Islam, but also for the US. There, many young people born or grown from children in the U.S., coming from families who do not have Arabic as mother tongue are very reluctant to spend their time required to learn Arabic to recite.
… in Muslim communities, abandoning Arab language in cults is equated to an intolerable abandonment of Islamic identity. It’s about keeping the difference. And the difference is that it is read in Arabic, the language of Allah. and it also happens in the United States, where supposedly Islam is open to democracy and society in general.
So, who are isolating themselves? Who does not want to adapt to the country they live in? And why are the non-Muslims to blame for the results of this self-isolation?
Yes, they exist among Muslim immigrants. Of course, normally women who suffer them, do not report them to the police or the authorities. With a few exceptions such as this one:
Nadia E., is a 21-year-old who moved from Morocco to La Seu d’Urgell (Lleida) two years ago. She reported him to the police after she wasn’t allowed to leave home without the use of clothing that concealed her entire body. He didn’t let her learn Spanish either. They were two of the alleged impositions she suffered from her husband, whom she married in an arranged marriage by parents of both in their native country.
… The victim said in court that he controlled her every move, forcing her to tell him when she exited and entered home, where she was going to and the name of the people she was going to speak to. She said her husband controlled her even when she was going to buy bread and required her to have all the windows closed. She added that her husband insulted and slapped her on a regular basis. He once threatened to kill her also saying he was going to throw her from the balcony.

A teenage Muslim girl was stoned to death under ‘Sharia law’ after taking part in a beauty contest in Ukraine.
Katya Koren, 19, was found dead in a village in the Crimea region near her home.
Friends said she liked wearing fashionable clothes and had come seventh in a beauty contest.
Of course, she wasn’t a non-Muslim girl who could be abused because the way she dressed. So, she should be killed… 😯

Well, this is of course, NOT shocking:
Islamic terror chiefs have declared war on France over its ban on women wearing burkas.
Extremists posted threats on websites calling for a “war on crusader France,” according to American terrorism monitoring service SITE.
One message read: “Leave our sisters alone or we will truly be obligated to act on our words.”
France has made it illegal for women to hide their faces with a burka – they can be fined £132.
Sheikh Abu Amad, the polygamous violent husband
According to BR the Islamic clergyman has already abused one of its three wives one week ago.
Sheikh Abu Adam (pictured) injured the 31-year-old badly. She suffered several fractures and was taken into protective custody from police officers, away from the dwelling of the 40-year-old imam. The police received a distress-call from a lawyer called by the victim. In the meantime the woman remains under police protection.
According to the report, the Islamic clergyman, who preaches publicly again and again against domestic violence and against jihad, was considered a gladly seen guest with the integration/multiculti-interfaith- rounds organized by well known social engineers . One week before his arrest he held a speech at the Catholic University Municipality of Munich.

According to the German Herald (found here), the lecture he gave in Munich was titled “‘An Islam Which Distances Itself From Violence”.
While he was beating her, he was shouting:
“Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.”
Well, he ended being a not very good supporter of a peaceful Islam, didn’t he?
