A 19-year-old man in Sweden has been charged with abuse after he beat his 14-year-old sister with a baseball bat because she refused to wear an Islamic veil.
One aspect of radical Islamist aggression that Westerners often overlook is that non-Muslim women tend to be its greatest victims.
According to a recent Open Doors study, "Christian women are among the most violated in the world, in maybe a way that we haven't seen before." The study revealed that six women are raped every day simply for being Christian.
Migrant Crisis: Islamist Rape Culture Comes to Europe

Such injustice for women is confirmed by a newly released report for the UK government on the application of sharia law in England and Wales – a report that reveals the systemic discrimination against women in Islamic courts.
The reason for this is simple. As harsh as Islamic law (sharia) is for men, it is even more so for women. For instance, potential abusers can cite a Koranic verse (4:34) that sanctions wife-beating. If Muslim women are viewed and treated as inferiors by radical Islamists, non-Muslim women are doubly so. For justification, Muslim assailants can cite another ayah (4:24) that condones sexual enslavement of non-Muslim women in the context of jihad.
The treatment of non-Muslim women as subhuman by jihadi organizations, such as ISIS or Boko Haram in Nigeria – where "infidel" females are bought, sold, gang-raped, mutilated, dismemberedand burned alive – is relatively well known from ISIS videos. Less well known is that many of these practices are still taking place, often rampantly, across the Muslim world, as a 2016 report revealed:
"Unfortunately, more and more women are the target of [Muslim] terrorist groups. There are numerous international incidents of women being kidnapped, raped, and forced to convert from Christianity to Islam by radical extremist groups.... Many are also sold on the open market. This brutality is not only occurring in the Middle East but in Africa and in many other places. In many of these countries, women are subject to persecution because they are considered second-class citizens because of their gender. As minorities in both gender and faith, Christian women face double the persecution. Although we don't have an exact number, we know that millions of women are being persecuted.... In these Muslim-dominated countries, Christian women are systematically deprived of their freedom to live and are denied basic human necessities."
