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.

Muslim Cleric Opposes Co-Ed Classes at New Saudi University

October 1, 2009

5 Bob to CounterJihad for sharing the unsurprising news of opposition to coed classes in Saudi King’s new university. The King is faced with a credibility gap here; on one hand, he opens a “modern” university with state of the art technology and great opportunity to attempt to create a diverse economy in his oil-dependent country. On the other hand? Must not tamper with Mohammed’s edicts, whether they make sense any longer or not.

Saudi king’s university slammed for coed classes

A prominent Muslim cleric has criticized a new Saudi university launched by King Abdullah for allowing men and women to take classes together.

Sheik Saad Bin Naser al-Sheshri, who is a member of the powerful government-sanctioned Supreme Committee of (Islamic) Scholars, was quoted Wednesday in the Al-Watan daily as demanding an end to coed classes at the newly opened King Abdullah Science and Technology University.

“Mixing is a great sin and a great evil,” al-Sheshri was quoted as saying. “When men mix with women, their hearts burn and they will be diverted from their main goal (which is) … education.”

Al-Sheshri’s comments indicate there may be significant opposition to the country’s first fully integrated coed university among the kingdom’s powerful religious establishment.

The multibillion dollar postgraduate institution, which officially opened its doors to students last week, has been touted by King Abdullah as a “beacon of tolerance.” The school boasts state-of-the-art labs, the world’s 14th fastest supercomputer and one of the biggest endowments worldwide.

Saudi officials have envisaged the university as a key part of the kingdom’s plans to transform itself into a global scientific hub-its latest efforts to diversify its oil-reliant economy.

Al-Watan, which is owned by members of the royal family, accused al-Sheshri of trying to undermine Abdullah’s reforms and suggested such criticism breeds terrorism.

“This is what al-Qaida awaits as a pretext and justification” for its actions, the paper’s editor-in-chief, Jamal Kashukshi, said in an editorial.

Another pro-government daily, Al-Riyadh, also rejected al-Sheshri’s comments, describing them as “a creed which puts us behind the rest of the Muslim world.”


Muslims pray for the soul of America

September 7, 2009

I’m not sure what to think here; Muslims praying for the soul of America sounds good in its face, but I don’t know what this constitutes. From what I know of Islam, my guess is that they’re praying for America’s conversion to Islam and embracing of Sharia law. Or perhaps for the dissenting faction to roll over for Obama and his Czars.  If that’s the case, I don’t want any part of it.

Instead, I ask you, dear readers, to join me in prayer for the conversion of our “Catholic” politicians, so they may see the error of their way and join in the fullness of the church; please also pray with me for the conversion of the non-Catholic politicians so they may also see the error of their ways.

Islam Goes to Bat for America

Muslims Organizing Service Outside Capitol to ‘Pray for the Soul’ of the Nation

By Jeff Diamant Saturday, September 5, 2009

Universal Press

Tens of thousands of Muslims plan to pray “for the soul of America” outside the U.S. Capitol this month in what is being described as a first-of-its-kind event.

The event, headed by the Dar-ul-Islam mosque in Elizabeth, N.J., will not include political speeches or placards, just prayer, said Hassen Abdellah, president of Dar-ul-Islam and a main organizer of the Sept. 25 event.

”Most of the time, when Muslims go to Washington, D.C., they go there to protest some type of event,” Abdellah said. “This is not a protest. Never has the Islamic community prayed on Capitol Hill for the soul of America. We’re Americans. We need to change the face of Islam so people don’t feel every Muslim believes America is ‘the great Satan,’ because we love America.”

A permit from the U.S. Capitol Police, issued July 28, grants access to the area by the West Front of the Capitol from 4 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sept. 25, but the the Friday prayer service is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Abdellah said that he hopes to draw 50,000 people from mosques across the country and that non-Muslims are welcome, too. About 400 people are expected from his mosque, which is raising money from donors to help pay for the event, which is expected to cost more than $200,000.

The gathering will occur near where presidents have been inaugurated since 1981.

Abdellah said President Obama’s inaugural address in January and his speech in Egypt in June led Abdellah and another imam to begin discussing the idea of a prayer service.

“For the first time in my lifetime,” Abdellah said, “I heard someone of his stature speaking about Islam and Muslims not in an adversarial sense, but in the sense of being welcome and acknowledging we are integral citizens in the society — that we’re gainfully employed, we’re educated.

“He said he had his hand open to the Islamic world,” he said. “The Islamic world wants to open their hand and shake it.”

The Web site set up for the event, http://islamoncapitolhill.com, has a logo with a red, white and blue hand shaking a light brown hand. The preamble of the Constitution and a page of Arabic text appear in the background.

Members of Dar-ul-Islam have been working since July to organize the event, through e-mails, phone calls and visits to mosques and Muslim student associations in various states.

”People didn’t look to Dar-ul-Islam to organize this,” Abdellah said. “No one called us and asked us to do it. We decided to do it on our own.” Organizers said that they have not decided who will lead the prayer and give the sermon at the event but that it is unlikely to be a major figure in the American Muslim world.

”This is not about personalities,” Abdellah said. “We don’t want personalities involved. The personality for this event is the Prophet Muhammad.”

Aly A. Aziz, president of the Islamic Society of Central Jersey, which is helping to organize the event, said that too many Americans automatically associate Islam with terrorism and that the event is a way to “expose Americans . . . to how the Muslims pray.” Shakoor Mustafa, a Newark resident who attends a mosque in East Orange, N.J., said he has donated money to the event and hopes to go to Washington if his workload allows.

”It’s historical,” he said, adding that, in his opinion, the mere granting of permission to hold the event reflects a dramatic change in how many Americans view Muslims after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

”Yesterday I was viewed as a terrorist,” he said, “and today I’ve been given a permit on Capitol Hill to come and pray in a spirit of unity.”

Soon we’ll know whether or not Lubna Hussein’s principled argument that the Koran does not regulate women’s attire is a winner or loser in the Sudan.

Human Rights Violation Alert: Saudi Child Bride Turned Back Over to 80-Year-Old Husband

August 27, 2009

This is just unconscionable. The United Nations is busy mandating that all five year olds are educated on the fine art of masturbation, meanwhile, pre-pubescent girls are still being forced into marriage in Saudi Arabia, despite the country’s claim to have signed a charter on rights of children which would outlaw child marriage.

We’ll keep seeing articles like this until Sharia is no longer the law of the land and beyond.

Saudi Child Bride Turned Back Over to 80-Year-Old Husband

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

A Saudi Arabian father forced his 10-year-old daughter to return to her 80-year-old husband Sunday, after she was found hiding at the home of her aunt for 10 days, Arab News reported.

The young girl’s husband, who denies he is 80 despite family claims, accused the aunt of violating the terms of his marriage, allowed by Sharia Law.

“My marriage is not against Sharia. It included the elements of acceptance and response by the father of the bride,” he told a local newspaper.

A member of the National Society for Human Rights said there are no regulations in place to stop the marriage of young girls, which is seen as harmful to their wellbeing.

“Such marriages are considered a gross violation of charters on the rights of children, which the Kingdom has signed and which set the age of adulthood at 18,” Maatouq Al-Abdullah told Arab News.
