Islamic Law: Women, Don’t Come To Mosque Unless You’re Ugly

07/06/2012 4 comments

Apparently a full veil isn’t enough. Maybe the superior gender is temporarily granted x-ray vision the moment they enter a mosque.  Remember, a Muslim man possesses twice the intelligence of a women, so don’t question this enlightened logic. Just do everything you can to look as ugly as possible. Think of it as a contest. Otherwise, you might cause another earthquake

“The worst sin and distraction from virtue that I have left for man is woman” – Prophet of Islam, Mohammed, Sahih AlBukhari, 5096

“When I stood on the door of hell, I saw most of its inhabitants were women” – Prophet of Islam, Mohammed, Sahih AlBukhari, 5196

By Robert Spencer – “Doing some research just now on another matter, I came across this gem in a Sharia manual:

‘It is offensive for an attractive or young woman to come to the mosque to pray (O: or for her husband to permit her), though not offensive for women who are not young or attractive when this is unlikely to cause temptation.’ — ‘Umdat al-Salik (Reliance of the Traveller) F12.4

‘Umdat al-Salik is a Shafi’i manual of Islamic law endorsed by Al-Azhar University in Cairo, the most prestigious institution in Sunni Islam, as ‘conforming to the practice and faith of the orthodox Sunni community.’

The mind reels. Who determines whether a woman is old or unattractive enough for it not to be offensive for her to go to mosque? Is this the opinion of the husband, father, and male relatives alone? And what if they decide that a particular Muslima is sufficiently ugly to attend prayers in the mosque, but men at the mosque differ, and believe her to be so attractive that they take offense and contend that she should have stayed home? Does internecine warfare ensue?

Oh, the glories and complexities of the Religion of Peace and Tolerance!” Source – Jihad Watch.

Flashback: Turkey: Islamists Bar Woman From Public Bus, ‘You Are Causing Us To Sin’ – “A Turkish woman claimed she was prevented from boarding a public bus by a group of Islamists because her outfit would ’cause them to sin,’ according to a report by daily Evrensel. Yağmur Yılmaz, 21, said she left home on June 3 to go to work, wearing a pair of sweatpants and a T-shirt… Yılmaz said she told the group it was everybody’s right to board the bus, to which the women from the group replied, ‘We would sin if you get on this bus, you are causing us to sin.’ The men in the group also harassed Yılmaz, she claimed, saying: ‘Look at her. Her head is not covered, shame!’” Read more.

Top 10 Qur’an Quotes Every Woman Must See – “Islam in its purest form honors and elevates women, we are often told. But does it? All too often, textual reality (the Quran) matches up with the historical reality of seventh—century Arabia. Gender inequality and oppression in the Quran reflect the culture of seventh century desert nomads. If Allah and Muhammad improved on this patriarchy, then they did not go far enough for a religion with a claim to universality. Here are the top ten rules in the Quran that oppress and insult women.” Read more.

New Sunspot Group Bombards Earth With Solar Flares, One Blast Disrupts Radio Communications In Europe

07/06/2012 Leave a comment

By Rob Waugh – “A violent new sunspot is bombarding the Earth with particles from solar flares – including a blast that affected some radio transmissions across Europe.

Nasa’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured an M5.6-class solar flare erupting from the sun’s surface starting on July 2, from a huge sunspot called AR1515 in the sun’s southern hemisphere.

The blast of particles – a ‘coronal mass ejection’ – was not directed towards Earth, but the charged particles caused brief radio interference across Europe.

From a different spot, but on that same day, the sun unleashed a coronal mass ejection (CME) that began at 4:36 AM on Tuesday.

Models from the NASA’s Space Weather Center at Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md, described the CME at traveling at nearly 700 miles per second, but do not show it heading toward Earth.

Sunspots are darker than the surrounding area because they are slightly cooler, which makes them less luminous.

They are caused by the sun’s magnetic field becoming twisted – and it’s this twisting dynamic that can produce coronal mass ejections.” Read more.

Kenya: Al-Shabaab Claims Responsibility For Church Attacks, Will Continue To Kill Those Who Do Not Worship Allah

07/06/2012 2 comments

Revelation 13:12a, 15b, “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast … and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”

Food for thought. Although most translations render Revelation 13:12 and other relevant portions of this chapter to say that “he” exercises all the power of the first Beast before “him”, the Greek text does not necessitate an anthropomorphic “he” or “him.”  The Greek text could also be understood as saying that “it” exercises all the power of the first Beast before “it” …

KBC News – “Somalia militia group Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for Sunday’s twin attacks on two churches in Garissa County that left 17 people dead.

The latest development came even as muslim leaders in Kenya agreed to form self-defence groups to protect churches following the deadly attacks.

In a tweet on Wednesday morning, the insurgents said they carried out the attacks in retaliation for Kenya Defence Forces (KDF)’s incursion in Somalia.

An Al-Shabaab loyalist Sheikh Hassan Takar said that the militia killed people who did not profess allegiance to Allah.

‘The mujahedeen (holy warriors) punished with their hands those believing and worshipping other than Allah,’ he said.

‘The militants will continue until such practice is eliminated.’ He added

They urged the Kenyan government to pull its troops out of Somalia, warning that they will target major buildings in Nairobi if they continue fighting the insurgents.

At the same time, Adan Wachu, head of the Supreme Council of Kenyan Muslims, told the BBC the attacks were acts of terrorism.

‘There are people out there who are determined to make Kenya another Nigeria,’ Mr Wachu, who also chairs the Inter-Religious Council of Kenya, told the BBC Network Africa programme.” Read more.

Revelation 13: A Commentary – “For the second Beast I see two possibilities. One, it may be referring to a reawakening as it were of all radical Islamic terrorist organizations rising up from within this new Islamic Empire with a massive upswing in their ‘membership numbers’. Since both the Shiite and Sunni branches of Islam are actively seeking the implementation of the Caliphate or, essentially, an Islamic Empire akin to a neo-Ottoman Caliphate where Sharia is the law of the land, the two horns here could be representing the extremist organizations within both the Shia and Sunni branches of radical Islam …” Read more.

2 Thessalonians 2:4 — A Rebuilt Jewish Temple, or Something Else? – “We should not discount the possibility that the ‘man of sin’ may not be pointing to one single person as it were, though the general consensus is precisely that, but could instead be pointing to one single entity.  The ekklesia of God is comprised of a great multitude of believing Jews and Gentiles created as ‘one new man’ in Christ who are marked by God (Eph. 2:15, Rev. 14:1) and described by John in Revelation 7 as the ‘multitude of the lamb‘, ie, the multitude of Christ. Conversely, the ‘man of sin’ (2 Thess 2:3) could therefore be its direct antithesis comprised of those who have the Mark of the Beast and described by John in Revelation 13 as the ‘multitude of a man’, ie, the multitude of Mohammed.” Read more.

Yet Again: UK Arrests Seven More For Terror Related Offenses, ‘Weapons Found In Car’

07/06/2012 Leave a comment

By Graham Smith, Stephen Wright and Chris Greenwood – “Seven men have been arrested on suspicion of terror offences after firearms and other weapons were found ‘hidden’ in a car.

One man from West Yorkshire and six from the West Midlands are being questioned on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism following a series of arrests this week, police said today.

News of the arrests comes a day after six people, including a white Muslim convert, were detained over an alleged plan to carry out a major terrorist attack, possibly during the Olympics.

Police insist the 13 arrests in the last two days do not involve threats to the Games, set to begin in three weeks, and that there is nothing to suggest that two sets of arrests are linked to each other.

But the counter-terror sweeps – and a false alarm yesterday that involved a bus filled with passengers – have raised anxiety in the run-up to the games.

A West Midlands police spokesman said that officers found material including firearms following a routine stop on the M1 in South Yorkshire last weekend.

He said: ‘The arrests followed a routine stop of a vehicle by police between J33 and 34 on the southbound side of the M1 motorway in South Yorkshire on Saturday. The car was impounded on suspicion of having no insurance.

‘Firearms, offensive weapons and other material were later found hidden inside, prompting police to take action to trace and arrest the driver, passenger and others suspected of being involved.

There were two firearms recovered. They are not automatic. They were not loaded and there was also a small amount of ammunition.'” Read more.
