Offensive to Muslims: Koranic Toilet Seat
“There is a toilet seat cover on sale in local stores that features verses of the Koran. This is an insult to the Muslim faith that we must react to,” he called out.
This one comes from the Muslim Brotherhood propaganda site IslamOnline, where they applaud Italian authorities for doing the bidding of seething Islamists threatening violence over another incident of “blasphemy:” Italy Seizes Quran-printed Toilet Seats.
* It is highly questionable whether Italy has anything in its laws to ban or prohibit toilet seats or toilet paper with Arabic/Koranic writing. It seems to be just another act of successful blackmail and intimidation by the RoP.
Following Muslim complaints, police raided the four braches of the company in the town of Latina, 60km south of Rome, and seized 2,000 such pieces on sale.
Interior minister Giuliano Amato met Friday with Italian Muslim leaders at the main Rome Mosque to reassure them that Italy would not tolerate such outrageous acts.
“This is an insult to the Muslim faith,” The imam of the Lazio town of Latina’s mosque, Sheikh Yusuf, told Amato. Amato reassured Yusuf, saying: “I would like to tell our friends from Latina that we have been informed of this matter and are taking action because it is offensive.”
* Standard line from Italy’s Muslim Website:
Italy has a Muslim population of some 1.2 million, including 20,000 reverts, according to unofficial estimates.*
* That’s the scary part…
* Selected comments:
* Watch out folks: A police raid to protect Islamic sensibilities is outrageous. Soon they’re going to be kicking in doors looking for cartoons.
* “…To head off angry Muslim Reaction”
Says it all.The appropriate response would have been “This is vulgar, but we are a free country. We live with things like this for the greater goal of a free society.Your threats and many of your actions are offensive, but yet we allow your freedom. If there is any violence you will be held responsible for instigation & the violent actors will be arrested.prosecuted & jailed if I can help it. All of those eligible will be deported after serving their sentences. Now thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.We are now alerted to watch you and your cohorts very closely.
Not offensive to Muslims: Dead Serb killed by Muslims…
Oriana Fallaci saw it coming:
No word yet on Italian police reaction to muslims’ unprecedented blasphemous acts against Christians, as documented by Oriana Fallici in The Rage and The Pride:
“A tent put up in order to begâ€“condemnâ€“insult the Italian government that hosted them but wouldn’t give them the papers necessary to rove about Europe and wouldn’t let them bring the hordes of their relatives to Italy. Mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, pregnant sistersâ€“inâ€“law, and if they had their way, their relatives’ relatives as well. A tent situated next to the beautiful palazzo of the Archbishop on whose sidewalk they kept the shoes or sandals that are lined up outside the mosques in their countries. And along with the shoes or sandals, the empty bottles of water they’d used to wash their feet before praying. A tent placed in front of the cathedral with Brunelleschi’s cupola and by the side of the Baptistery with Ghiberti’s golden doors. A tent, finally, furnished like a sleazy little apartment: seats, tables, chaiseâ€“lounges, mattresses for sleeping and for fucking, ovens for cooking food and plaguing the piazza with smoke and stench. And, thanks to the customary irresponsibility of ENEL, which cares about our works of art about as much as it cares about our landscape, furnished with electric light. Thanks to a radio tape player, enriched by the uncouth wailing of a muezzin who punctually exorted the faithful, deafened the infidels, and smothered the sound of the church bells. Add to all this the yellow streaks of urine that profaned the marble of the Baptistry. (My, these sons of Allah sure have a long range! However did they manage to hit the target when they were held back by a protective railing that kept it nearly two whole meters away from their urinary equipment?) And along with the yellow streaks of urine, the stench of the excrement that blocked the door of San Salvatore al Vescovo: that exquisite Romanesque church (year 1000) that stands at the rear of the Piazza del Duomo and that the sons of Allah transformed into a shithouse. You’re well aware of this.”
And the Muslims are seething about what, a toilet seat? Can you imagine the outrage if some dared shit on the steps of a mosque? Blood would run in the streets! Yet there will be no response to the muslims defiling the holy places of Christianity, except to cower in fear. Europe’s political class has been neutered, leaving a vacuum of courage and leadership that will lead to the next World War.
Laura Bush: “They do not see covering as some sort of subjugation of women:” Laura Bush defends the hijab.
* Note: wearing the abaya in Saudi Arabia is not a “choice.” It’s mandatory for all women when they are in public. If they show even a little bit of ankle, they’re subject to being beaten and arrested by the Saudi religious police (mutaween).
Hijaab Befuddlement Syndrome, update:
* Does Laura Bush really think those women will be honest about their opinions on this misogynistic practice?
UPDATE at 10/28/07 11:35:26 am:
Did these girls also choose to die in a fire instead of wearing the abaya?
Saudi Arabia’s religious police stopped schoolgirls from leaving a blazing building because they were not wearing correct Islamic dress, according to Saudi newspapers.
About 800 pupils were inside the school in the holy city of Mecca when the tragedy occurred.
According to the al-Eqtisadiah daily, firemen confronted police after they tried to keep the girls inside because they were not wearing the headscarves and abayas (black robes) required by the kingdom’s strict interpretation of Islam.
