Egypt: Salafists Attack Elementary Schoolgirls … For Eating Popsicles

Seems to me that these “Islamic Puritans” need to get their minds out of the gutter …

By Joseph Mayton – “CAIRO: Two bearded ultra-conservative men in Egypt attacked four elementary schoolgirls walking down a street eating ice popsicles. The men knocked the popsicles from the girls hands and began yelling at them.

They told them to stop eating the popsicles and go home, Bikyamasr.com witnessed. The girls, shocked at what was happening, stood frozen in their movement.

The two men continued their yelling, telling them to be ‘modest.’ The girls began to cry.

A group of men across the street watching the incident were quick to enter the fray, pushing the two men away and kicking them as a yelling match ensued.

One of the men, protecting the girls, continued to shove the two men until they were heading in the opposite direction.

The incident on Thursday highlights the growing influence Salafists, or Islamic puritans, are attempting to have on the streets.

Many women have reported incidents of conservatives in Egypt attempting to force their will on them across the country, attacking them for their ‘immodesty.'” Source – Bikyamasr.

Flashback: Islamic Cleric Bans Women from Touching Bananas, Cucumbers, Carrots, Zucchini for Sexual Resemblance – “CAIRO: An Islamic cleric residing in Europe said that women should not be close to bananas or cucumbers, in order to avoid any ‘sexual thoughts.’ The unnamed sheikh, who was featured in an article on el-Senousa news, was quoted saying that if women wish to eat these food items, a third party, preferably a male related to them such as their a father or husband, should cut the items into small pieces and serve. He said that these fruits and vegetables ‘resemble the male penis’ and hence could arouse women or ‘make them think of sex.’ He also added carrots and zucchini to the list of forbidden foods for women.” Read more.

    Didn’t they say that they were going to have modesty police there? This sure sounds like they have already put it together. It would be different, if they actually cared about modesty, this is just an excuse to enslave, torture,rape,and just abuse women and children.
