Religion of Peace . . . and Flogging for Wearing Pants

By Debbie Schlussel
Ah, the “Religion of Peace.” Giving us yet another example of the gazillion examples its “peacefulness” at ground zero of the “peace.” Today’s lesson: don’t offend the Islamic fashion police, or you could end up as more than a fashion victim.

Sudanese police arrested 13 women in a raid on a cafe and flogged 10 of them in public for wearing trousers in violation of the country’s strict Islamic law, one of those arrested said Monday.
The 13 women were at a cafe in the capital, Khartoum, when they were detained Friday by officers from the public order police, which enforces the implementation of Sharia law in public places.


Religion of Peace . . . But not for Women in Infidelic Pants

The force, which is similar to the Saudi religious police, randomly enforces an alcohol ban and often scolds young men and women mingling in public.
One of those arrested Friday, journalist Lubna Hussein, said she is challenging the charges, which can be punishable by up to 40 lashes. . . .
Women in northern Sudan, particularly in Khartoum, dress in traditional outfits that include a shawl over their head and shoulder. Western dress is uncommon.
Still, the raid on a Khartoum cafe popular with journalists and foreigners was unusual. . . .
“This is retribution to thousands of girls who are facing flogging for the last 20 years because of wearing trousers,” [Hussein] said.

Yup, this is Islam. They ask us to be tolerant of them, no matter what. Yet, they are intolerant–violently so–of everything.

That’s life in the 7th century for you.
When will people here see this for what it is?

They won’t see Islam for what it is. My friends are the perfect example of the American ideology. They hate religion of any kind, except Islam, for in their minds Islam is a race not a religion. They are more concerned with what’s going on on the Hills, or Big Brother. My favorits list consists of Debbie, TexasDarlin, Atlas, and various international publications. Theirs consists of Big brother after hour, and John Stewart. They hate Bush because he can’t say Nuclear, but love Obama because he uses a teleprompter. To them life revolves around reality TV, they couldn’t tell you where Jordan, Bahraine, Syria, or Ghana was on a map.
Sadly, they are the norm in this country and until Disneyland or their local Krispy Kreme shop is bombed they will continue to live with their heads buried up their ass.
