More Of The Madness Of Muslim: Dress Codes Strictly Enforced

shariaAre you getting a little sick of how everyone has to run a flagpole up their asses and fly a flag for Islam these days? From the U.N declaring that no one has a right to offend them to a judge who defends the right to violently assault the insulter of said religion – it’s gut-wrenching obsequiousness based on cowardice.

And it just gets progressively worse.

Dozens of Iraqi teenagers stoned to death for ‘emo’ haircuts: activists

Iraqi activists sounded the bell over the killing of dozens of teenagers by religious police for having “emo” haircuts.
Activists told the Cairo-based al-Akhbar daily that at least 90 Iraqi teenagers with “emo” appearances have been stoned to death by the Moral Police in the country in the past month. The violent crackdown against “emo” Iraqi teenagers came after the Iraqi interior ministry declared them as “devil worshippers.”

“The ‘Emo phenomenon’ or devil worshiping is being probed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate it as soon as possible since it’s detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger,” according to a statement by the interior ministry.
“They wear strange, tight clothes that have pictures on them such as skulls and use stationery that are shaped as skulls. They also wear rings on their noses and tongues, and do other strange activities,” the statement added.
The statement said that Iraq’s Moral Police was granted approval by the Ministry of Education to enter Baghdad schools and pinpoint students with Western appearances.
The activists told the newspaper that a group of armed men dressed in civilian clothing led the teenagers to secluded areas a few days ago, stoned them to death, and then disposed their bodies in garbage dumpsters across the capital, Baghdad.
“First they throw concrete blocks at the boy’s arms, then at his legs, then the final blow is to his head, and if he is not dead by then, they start all over again,” one person who managed to escape told the daily.
The exact death toll remains unclear, but Hana al-Bayaty of Brussels Tribunal, an NGO dealing with Iraqi issues, said the current figure ranges “between 90 and 100.”
Activists said that leaflets were distributed in Baghdad warning teenagers from donning the “emo” style, and in some regions, teenage homosexuals were killed by battering their heads also by concrete blocks.

So the ‘Moral Police’ dispose of these…non-conformists…by torturing them to death? Who is more ‘moral’ then? Bands of religious vigilantes scouring the land, cruelly murdering anyone who violates their beloved ‘laws’? Some religion of peace.

There are many ways of dealing with teenage rebelliousness – but this nonsense is barbaric savagery, only worthy of being dealt with in the same way they dole out ‘punishment’.

You cannot cure a rabid dog – you cannot rationalize with the creature, you cannot apply any sort of cure to the disease.

Religion – letting mad dogs run rampant amongst us for centuries without apology or effort.

Till the next post, then.

    Of the three “Abrahamic religions,” islam is by far the worst. “God” is not great.

    The real mistake George HW Bush made in Iraq, was………not Nuking them in ’91. What a waste of time & resources….

  3. KA says:

    Dude – nuking an entire country? Are you psycho or what? There’s innocent women & children there.

  4. Sue Blue says:

    This is a fucking outrage…and of course it’s going to be labeled a “cultural” problem just like child brides, female genital mutilation, and ‘honor’ killing, instead of religiously-motivated murder. I get so tired of people defending Islam by claiming that these kind of atrocities are a result of some sort of regional primitive cultural practice instead of their psychotic religion. It’s the same as when Christians claim that some mass-murderer or domestic terrorist was “just a lone psychotic whacko” whose actions had nothing to do with the fact that he was a member of a fundamentalist evangelical church that espoused violent acts against “sinners”.

    This is so laughable and typical. Americans demonizing Islam for consequences that their foreign policy is responsible for. If I remember correctly, before the US got rid of Saddam, Iraq was a Arab socialist regime, defined by secular and multi-ethnic traditions. Before this genocidal war carried out in Iraq, there were mixed communities of Christians, Sunnis and Shia, all living peacefully together. The ethnic cleansing began afterward and continues to day.

    Chances are in an Arab socialist republic, like what Iraq was, before invasion nobody would have heard about these emos, because they would have remained unharassed. I believe Atheists need to stop being delusional and realize the greatest threat that the world is face with today is not religious radicalism. But the inperialist wars fought by the US, where invariably Islamist extremists become their allies as was the case in Libya, as is the case right now in Syria.

    Islamist extremism and american imperilaism are allies when it comes to destroying Islamic societies and promoting barbarity of the sort featured here. Libya showed this to us well enough.

    Dude, blaming all of it on America is a cop out. Did we fuck up repeatedly in the ME? Of course. It still doesn’t render this kind of horseshit excusable.

    Really? On every inch of sand in Iraq? Are you kidding? Saddam persecuted the Kurds, for 1 example.
    There’s tons of evidence otherwise.

    Dead wrong.

    The ethnic cleansing began afterward and continues to day.

    So America’s responsible for all the crazy assholes? Wow, what a cop out.

    Chances are in an Arab socialist republic, like what Iraq was, before invasion nobody would have heard about these emos, because they would have remained unharassed.

    Chances are, in a Sharia ruled country, this sort of barbarism would’ve been applauded.

    I believe Atheists need to stop being delusional and realize the greatest threat that the world is face with today is not religious radicalism.

    What you believe is inconsequential. We have, the world over, given these sociopaths too much leeway by kissing the ass of their religion.

    But the inperialist wars fought by the US, where invariably Islamist extremists become their allies as was the case in Libya, as is the case right now in Syria.

    This illustrates my point. Civilized peoples should have no truck w/these crazies. Sadly, my country is composed of people, & people do what is most convenient for them, not what is the correct thing to do.
    Did America fuck Iraq up? Of course. Just like we fucked up Iran. But to say the actions of extremist fuckwads is due solely to that is to excuse the behaviors of these crazed nutjobs.

  7. Sue Blue says:

    While political ideology and American foreign policy can both be nasty, harmful, and responsible for obscene amounts of misery in the world, neither of them are the root cause of the “morality” used to justify killing people for their appearance, sexuality or their family’s “honor”, or for mutilating girls and forcing them into child marriages. All of these practices are sanctioned by imams with justification from the Quran, if not actually ordered by them. If the religion of Islam is as peaceful as we always hear, why don’t prominent muslims stand up and denounce these practices and push aggressively for laws against them? Why do their ethical and moral standards seem stuck in the fifth century? No matter how you twist around trying to pass this behavior off as a dysfunctional remnant of imperialism or primitive culture, it’s a fact it’s done by muslims, and almost exclusively by muslims.

    All religions are harmful, but the Abrahamic religions top the list and Islam is currently at the pinnacle.

    Thanks for the response. But you said this:

    “Really? On every inch of sand in Iraq? Are you kidding? Saddam persecuted the Kurds, for 1 example.

    The persecution of Kurds by Sadam was real and horrible. But you are missing the point. Before the Middle East was carved up by the British and the French during world war I it was part of the Ottoman empire. The ottoman empire was run by a Totalitarian Regime or Sultanate. But nonetheless this sultanate presided over a 400 year old empire. made up of Sunnis. shias, Kurds, Jews and all sorts of Christians. The Multiculturalism of the Ottoman empire was such that Jews and Armenian Christians very often made up the elites in banking, administration, and business in this islamic society.

    The Arab socialist regimes of Iraq, Libya and Syria were the only countries in the Middle East carrying out this legacy of secularism and multiculturalism. The evidence of Sadam persecuting Kurds should not be interpreted as evidence of a government oppossed to multiculturalism. Saddam Husain would have slaughtered any community who rose up against him–be it Kurds, Sunnis or Shia. He was a tyrant!

    But I repeat the Islamist extremism and intolerance right now in Iraq ia a direct result of Western intervention in Iraq. It is absurd to blame Islam for the consequences of American foreign policy. Any society (islamic, Christian or secular) which is subjected to the destruction and barbarity which the US has unleashed in Iraq will end up descending into similar chaos, violence and intolerance.

    People Like you may feel just too guilty to accept that fact.

    You paint an idyllic picture to suit your own views. Let’s take a look see:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenian_Genocide
    In addition to other legal limitations, Christians were not considered equals to Muslims: testimony against Muslims by Christians and Jews was inadmissible in courts of law; they were forbidden to carry weapons or ride atop horses; their houses could not overlook those of Muslims; and their religious practices were severely circumscribed (e.g., the ringing of church bells was strictly forbidden). Violation of these statutes could result in punishments ranging from the levying of exorbitant fines to execution.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottoman_Greece#Taxation_and_the_.22tribute_of_children.22
    Greeks paid a land tax and a heavy tax on trade, the latter taking advantage of the wealthy Greeks to fill the state coffers. Greeks, like other Christians, were also made to pay the jizya, or Islamic poll-tax which all non-Muslims in the empire were forced to pay instead of the Zakat that Muslims must pay as part of the 5 pillars of Islam. Failure to pay the jizya could result in the pledge of protection of the Christian’s life and property becoming void, facing the alternatives of conversion; enslavement or death. Like in the rest of the Ottoman empire, Greeks had to carry a receipt certifying their payment of jizya at all times or be subject to imprisonment. The Greek people resented these archaic and brutal practices and considered Muslim and Ottoman culture repugnant, unsophisticated and generally inferior. Most Greeks did not have to serve in the Sultan’s army, but the young boys that were forcibly converted to Islam were made to serve in the Ottoman military. In addition, girls were forcibly taken in order to serve as odalisques in harems.
    & let’s not forget, Greece was liberated from the Ottoman empire by the Western powers because of its savagery towards the Greeks.

    I never said that Ottoman society was perfect. But in terms of the way in which it treated its minorities, it was certainly more civilized than the American treatment of Blacks and native Americans in the corresponding period. This inspite of the fact that the Founding Fathers of the US envisaged a secular state with a clear separation of powers between church and State.

    And the Armenian Genocide was carried out by the Young Turks who revolted against the Sultan because these young Turks were inspired by Western style Democracy in particular French and English democracy. Within 5 years of their democratic revolution they lost a 400 year old empire and massacred over a million Armenians–All in the name of Western Style Democracy. It was like a precursor to Iraq or Libya:

    Mass murdering people in the name of democracy and freedom.

    @ mghani:

    No you didn’t – but you inferred that it was more civilized prior to American imperialism, which it clearly wasn’t.

    But in terms of the way in which it treated its minorities, it was certainly more civilized than the American treatment of Blacks and native Americans in the corresponding period.

    Oh stop. All that sort of behavior is inexcusable, regardless of cultural norms. I’m not defending Americans: but you want to blame them for all the woes, including self-inflicted ones.

    And the Armenian Genocide was carried out by the Young Turks who revolted against the Sultan because these young Turks were inspired by Western style Democracy in particular French and English democracy.

    Oh wow – you could NOT be more wrong. A quick read of the actual Wiki entry STIPULATES that the Armenian Genocide was COMMITTED by the Ottoman empire, & the Young Turks were rebelling against the corruption in the government.
    Really – your Islamic apologia is not only pathetic & misdirected, it’s historically inaccurate.
    So again – the Middle East was way fucked up LONG before the imperialistic capitalist running dogs of America arrived. Did the White Man fuck things up? No argument. Were the peoples fucked up prior to the White Man arriving? Again, no argument.
    Islam, like Christianity & Judaism, is a barbaric filthy anachronism that has no place among civilized peoples. Losing religion will remove a lot (not all – but a LOT) of pathetic excuses for the sociopaths among us, & remove their ability to hide in plain sight.
