There’s a tiny little detail missing from news reports that the Islamic Fiqh Council of North America issued a fatwa (Islamic religious decree), claiming that TSA airport body scanners are against Islamic laws about modesty. It’s that Imam Hassan Qazwini (more about him here and here), a man on whom I’m the expert, is best buddies with a man who issued another fatwa: Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, the spiritual leader of Hezbollah, who issued the fatwa to blow up over 300 U.S. Marines (while they slept) and U.S. Embassy employees in Beirut in 1983.

Yup, the same man who issued the fatwa to hijack a plane and torture to death Navy Diver Robert Dean Stethem, Col. William R. “Rich” Higgins, and US Embassy CIA attache William Buckley. Uh-huh, his friend is telling us how we should run our airport security. And don’t forget that Qazwini (imam of the Islamic Center of America mosque in Dearbornistan) is tight with the Government of Iran, which he visits with quite often (switching planes in London), when he’s not preaching hate and hosting Louis Farrakhan at his Dearbornistan mosque (I wrote about this in the Detroit Newsistan after going to the mosque undercover in 1998).
I’m thinking that we should change our federal and state prison systems and forbid the imprisonment of convicted criminals. After all the head of the Convicted Criminals Council says that the prisons are against the faith and teachings of criminals, and so only innocent, law-abiding citizens should live there. That’s essentially what the Islamic Fiqh Council of North America is saying, when it says that Muslims shouldn’t have to go through airport scanners because it violates Islamic law. Guess what? It violates American law to blow up planes and mass murder Americans. And since this is still America–not Islamerica (yet)–guess whose law trumps (or, at least, should trump) whose?
A friend of mine, a federal agent, says:
I was amazed at the fact that the Muslims will now be aiding the economy of Michigan due to the fact that, with the new fatwa, they will buy more cars and shoes/sneakers since apparently they don’t want to fly anymore.
Sadly, the TSA will try to accommodate them with TSA’s doing wanding and searches of them, which they’ll also bitch and moan about . . . and which won’t detect crotchbombs and the new breast implant bombs we’ve been reading about.
And, finally, with regard to that phony Islamic “modesty” concept, here’s a little something to set the record straight and here’s some more. There ain’t no such thing. Muslims don’t have the monopoly on modesty, or even the corner hot dog stand. Tell it to The Pink Pony staff, the doctor who gave Suha in vitro fertilization, a gazillion Sheikhs with extensive harems, and Palestinian Authority presidential chief of staff Rafiq Al-Husseini. There’s a reason why porn sites are most popular in the Muslim Mid-East.
And here’s a little something more–a money shot on that “Islamic modesty,” which is sort of like “thin obesity.”
