Sharia law, now with more socks

October 31, 2009

socks

There are a lot of Somalis where I live, here because theirs is a failed state. Yet there have been attempts to follow Sharia law in the US; most notably the failed attempts of cabdrivers to force Sharia law on their passengers, which would be the result of allowing them to decide, in violation of established laws of common carrier, whether or not to accept a customer, based on carrying alcohol or having a guide dog.

Another unsuccessful attempt was in refusing to scan pork products at a local grocery/discount store.

The successful attempts, unfortunately, have been at state-owned schools, some of which have added footbaths to the restrooms and allowed Muslim-only prayer rooms, some of which were segregated into male and female areas and in manufacturing plants, some of which are pandering to their Muslim employees to the detriment of their non-Muslim employees.

In Somalia, Al-Shabaab, the losers who recruit immigrants from Minneapolis to go there and die, either because they belatedly caught on that Somalia isn’t all that and they’d rather be at Starbucks, or because they blew themselves up, together with their innocent victims, as a homicide attack, have recently taken to being the wardrobe police.

While headscarves have already been established as a requirement, here’s your checklist for other items:

Socks; required.

Bras; not allowed.

Because women are mere chattel in Muslim societies, though it isn’t okay to shake hands with a man, it’s perfectly acceptable that men would go around feeling up women they don’t know in order to determine whether their breasts really are firm or they’re wearing a wonderbra.

I’m not sure why socks are required; I have the impression that African countries are rather warm, so socks would be detrimental in the heat. The theory behind Somali women being all shrouded up when in public is to prevent men’s lust; does that mean that Somali men have a big foot fetish? Because that seems to be the only reason to ensure women wear socks.

Yale to host Mohammed Cartoonist

September 28, 2009

Mantilla-twitch to CounterJihad for letting us know that Dhimmi Yale is having the Mohammed Cartoonist speak on campus. It’s too bad they chose not to include the cartoons in the book; it would be much better to include them. I’m excited about International Free Speech Day. Of course it will likely be viewed as anti-Islam propaganda since free speech isn’t an option in Muslim countries.

Mohammed cartoonist to speak at Yale

Free speech will be on the agenda when Kurt Westergaard and Lars Hedegaard visit students at Yale

The artist behind the infamous Mohammed cartoon, Kurt Westergaard, and the president of the International Free Press Society, Lars Hedegaard, will speak to Yale University students as a new book about the cartoon crisis is set to be published.

Yale goes dhimmi

Yale University Press, an autonomous publishing house associated with the university, is releasing Danish author Jytte Clausen’s book ‘The Cartoons That Shook The World’ on Monday. The publisher has removed images of the cartoons from the book, reasoning that they might incite violence.

Muhammed cartoon

Westergaard’s cartoons, one of which depicts the prophet Mohammed with a bomb in his turban, were first published by Jyllands-Posten newspaper in 2005.

He and Hedegaard have been invited by a student organisation to speak at the university campus on 1 October, just three days after the book’s scheduled release.

Hedegaard told The Copenhagen Post that he would talk about the background of the crisis and the situation today. He expected Westergaard to talk about his art and what he wanted to express through his drawings.

The timing of the talk was appropriate, he said.

‘The decision of Yale University Press is of course despicable and a sign of censorship and fear. It’s a sad comment of our times that a well-respected company should bow to fear of threats,’ Hedegaard said.

Hedegaard also noted that 30 September is the fourth anniversary of the original publication of the drawings and announced plans to establish an annual event promoting free speech.

When asked if creating an International Free Speech Day on the cartoon anniversary would stir up negative feelings, Hedegaard said that it was not his intention to offend people.

‘We are simply making a statement that we have free speech in our country so that any ideology, or group or political party can be exposed to ridicule,’ said Hedegaard. ‘We can’t control people’s feelings’


Mini Muslim March

September 27, 2009

Friday, the traditional Muslim day of prayer, at the Capital Mall in Washington, DC, there was a Muslim Prayer Day.

It was controversial because one of the organizers is reported not to exactly adore American traditions.

They expected thousands upon thousands.

And didn’t get them. According to the Washington Post, there were about 3,000 attending.

“We wanted to bring people out to show you don’t need to fear America,” said Imam Ali Jaaber of Dar-ul-Islam mosque in Elizabeth N.J., the service’s main organizer. At the same time, he said, he wanted to remind non-Muslims that “we are decent Muslims. We work; we pay taxes. We are Muslims who truly love this country.”

This same Imam asked the Christian protestors to tone it down because Friday is sacred.

Free speech is also sacred.

Interestingly, I failed to notice women in the news coverage.
