"Muslim groups in Italy insisted that Italian laws must be respected .."

Funny.

They don’t respect us or our laws, period. But when the wind blows “in an ugly direction” they quickly back off, don’t they?

Italy: Unemployed Husband of Muslim woman fined for wearing burqa says he won’t let her leave the house anymore

This is an attempt to set up a game of legal “chicken” by restricting a woman’s movements even more and blaming it on the state’s efforts to prevent it… not unlike the frequently encountered, circular argument that fighting back against jihad is the root cause of jihad. Italian authorities, for their part, may want to consider the application of rules on wrongful imprisonment.

He speaks as though he owns his wife. Oh wait, being a Muslim man I guess he thinks he does. Winston Churchill told us this:

“The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property (either as a child, a wife, or a concubine) must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.” From the River War

Sad that we don’t dig our heels in on every occasion and tell them to shove it.

Does this make sense then:

“If politeness and ceremony be observed toward Mohammedans, they imagine they are feared and become arrogant; but in showing severity and rudeness, they are impressed with fear and respect, and they are supple and manageable.”

–North China Herald,1867

The Muslim husband of the first woman in Italy to be fined for wearing a burqa has vowed to never let her outside again, because he doesn’t want other men looking at her.

Amel Marmouri (26), was handed a penalty of 500 euros (Rs 2,900) after being spotted by police officers in a post office in the northern city of Novara.

The fine is the first case of its kind in the country.

Cash crunch

But the Tunisian’s husband, Ben Salah Braim (36), said she will now have to remain indoors.

“I just don’t know where we are going to get 500 euros to pay the fine. We thought as she was going to the mosque she was OK to wear the burqa.

“We knew about the law and I know that it’s not against my religion but now Amel will have to stay indoors. I can’t have other men looking at her,” he added.

Under Italian anti-terrorist laws brought in during the 1970s to fight political activism, it is illegal to be seen in a public place with your face covered.

It had never been fully enforced but, earlier this year, Novara Mayor Massimo Giordano introduced new local laws banning any clothing that ‘prevents the immediate identification of the wearer inside public buildings, schools and hospitals’

Giordano said, “I signed the new regulations for reasons of security but also so that people who come to live in our city are aware and respect our traditions. The regulations in Novara specifically cover people wearing clothing that prevents them from being identified in a public place, and a post office is a public place.

“This is the only way to stop behaviour that makes the already difficult process of integration even harder.”

Police chief Paolo Cortese said, “The fine was given because the woman was inside the post office at the time, which is a public building.”

Muslim support

Muslim groups in Italy insisted that Italian laws must be respected Imam Izzedin Elzir, president of the Islamic Community and Organisations Union in Italy, said, “We are for the freedom of women and against veils of any kind and Italian laws must be respected.”

“We as an organisation have always said that we are against face veils in Italy because the law of recognition has to be observed,” he added.

Hugh’s comment:

“I just don’t know where we are going to get 500 euros to pay the fine. We thought as she was going to the mosque she was OK to wear the burqa.

“We knew about the law and I know that it’s not against my religion but now Amel will have to stay indoors. I can’t have other men looking at her,” he added.
— from the article above
Why stay in Italy? It has so many intolerable churches and cathedrals. It has offensive statues — Muhammad wouldn’t tolerate them for one minute — all over the place. It has museums full of unacceptable painitings and sculpture. It has men and women talking, laughing, flirting, on the streets, in the cafes, in the shops. It’s a horrible place for a Believer. Why torment yourself? For god’s sake, Tunisia beckons, with your relatives, your friends, your faith (kept in check just a bit by President Ben Ali and the ghost of Habib Bourguiba). Why stay in Italy?

But perhaps you are not the person to ask. Perhaps the Italian government should be asked: why are such people allowed into Italy in the first place? Surely by now everyone in Italy — land of Oriana Fallaci — knows that Muslim immigrants are different from all others because they carry with them, in their mental baggage, undeclared, a Total Belief-System that makes them incapable of real loyalty to the legal and political institutions of Italy, or indeed to be anything but hostile to everything that makes Italy Italy.

What does it take to have the government’s immigration and naturalization policy reflect that clear understanding?

  1. But burka is women’s liberation – an option that some muslimas choose… (so the story goes)

  2. The answer to Hugh’s question (Why do they stay in Italy?) is simple: Because their ultimate goal is to force Italians to accept the Islamic belief system. They do not migrate to other countries to accept, adapt, or even understand new customs and traditions. They are like locusts….spreading themselves across the planet…. with the goal of making Islam the ONLY religion in the world. This should not be difficult to believe or understand, because Islamic leaders are very vocal and make no bones about expressing this final goal. They threaten and warn us daily. What is difficult to comprehend is WHY we don’t believe them when every single day we see evidence of their efforts at world domination. Why do Westerners refuse to believe them? Why do we allow ourselves to be bullied by their intimidation tactics? It is imperative that we swiftly and firmly respond to their threats and complaints by creating laws that reinforce our democratic beliefs. Muslim immigrants must be forced to accept the fact that if they expect to live in peace within our borders, they must understand, accept and adapt to our way of life. Immigrants from all over the globe have done that successfully for 234 years. If Muslims are offended by our civilization, they should immediately leave our nations and take up residence in any of many Islamic nations that accept their primitive way of life.
