Iran: "Islamic Science" to replace 'Western' Social Sciences

Islam, a work in progress. There can never be enough of it:

Restrictions Claim Subjects Incompatible With Islam

Update: watch this and gasp!

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has imposed new restrictions on 12 university social sciences deemed to be based on Western schools of thought and therefore incompatible with Islamic teachings, state radio reported Sunday.

NASSER KARIMI, Associated Press Writer

The list includes law, philosophy, management, psychology, political science and the two subjects that appear to cause the most concern among Iran’s conservative leadership – women’s studies and human rights.

“The content of the current courses in the 12 subjects is not in harmony with religious fundamentals and they are based on Western schools of thought,” senior education official Abolfazl Hassani told state radio.

Superstition?

Iranian cleric says Holocaust “superstition”

Since they ascribe Israel’s existence to the Holocaust, they believe this denial strips the Jewish State of all legitimacy. “Senior Iranian cleric dismisses Nazi Holocaust as ‘superstition,'” from the Daily Mail, September 5 (thanks to Jihad Watch)

But Muslims assure us that the next holocaust won’t be a myth:

Zionists Waiting To Kill Hidden Imam, Says Iranian Cleric

Iran’s President Mahmud Ahmadinejad accused the United States of doing all it could to prevent the return of Imam Mahdi.  “We have documented proof that they [U.S. leaders] believe that a descendant of the prophet of Islam will raise in these parts [the Middle East] and he will dry the roots of all injustice in the world.

Mojtaba Zolnour, deputy representative of Iran’s supreme leader in the Revolutionary Guard, has said that “Zionists” are waiting for the Hidden Imam to appear to kill him.

Hojatoleslam Zolnour made the comments earlier this week at Qom University. (Radio Free Europe)

EU springs into action on stoning:

Rome, 3 Sept. (AKI) – European Parliament vice-president Roberta Angelilli on Friday vowed to push through a debate next week and resolution condemning Tehran over the Iranian woman Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who faces death by stoning.   “We have decided to mobilise the European Parliament to give voice to a protest, perhaps something more, a genuine rebellion of consciences against this violation of human rights, which we consider barbaric, inhumane and cruel,” said Angelilli.

Imagine the international outcry, the furious denunciations, the hand-wringing over “Islamophobia,” if a Western leader spoke this way about Iran. But about this, the world yawns. “Ahmadinejad predicts the removal of ‘Zionists’ from the world,” from the Telegraph, via JW

Here’s Hugh Fitzgerald on the subject, from way back in 2004:

It is true that Islam regards lands once part of the dar al-Islam as first on the list of lands to be reconquered — hence Israel (particularly galling given its geographic position), but many Muslims keep noting that “we lost Spain, India” not as a matter for the past but of present fury. But, in fact, in Islamic teachings there is no need to bring up any putative Muslim population, because ALL people were originally Muslim (all Christians and Jews were BORN Muslim, but their faith was somehow perverted); all lands belong to Allah, and therefore to Allah’s people, the Muslims…

Israeli ambassador to U.S.: Hizballah has 15,000 rockets hidden beneath hospitals, homes, and schools

Human shields, and war crimes waiting to happen on Hizballah’s part. And nothing will be done to stop them. There is certainly no political will in Lebanon or at the U.N.to do so, just as prior calls for Hizballah to disarm have not been worth the paper they’re printed on.

No, if and when hostilities resume (and Hizballah isn’t amassing all these arms to sit and look at them), this report will be long forgotten, and almost everyone will blame Israel. “US envoy Oren warns: Hizbullah has 15,000 rockets on border,” from the Jerusalem Post, September 3:

Iran back to the stoning age (Andrew Bolt)

THE Iranian woman whose sentence to death by stoning sparked an international outcry is feared to be facing imminent execution, after she was put on a state-run TV program where she confessed to adultery and involvement in a murder.

Speaking shakily in her native Azeri language, which could be heard through a voice-over, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, 43, told an interviewer on Wednesday that she was an accomplice to the murder of her husband and that she had an extramarital relationship with her husband’s cousin.

Her lawyer told The Guardian that his client, a mother of two, was tortured for two days before the interview was recorded in Tabriz prison, where she has been held for four years.

With so much devotion to traditional Islamic teachings, Afghanistan’s clerics don’t want to be left behind:

About 350 of the Islamic clerics, or ulema, met for three days this week, the meeting ending with a declaration calling on President Hamid Karzai to enact sharia, or Islamic law, including punishments such as stonings, lashing, amputation and execution. (Reuters)

Iran, Child Prostitution, Muta'a & Stoning

Marriage For Minutes Forces Children Into Prostitution In Iran

‘Marriage for Minutes’ or ‘Mut’ah Marriage’ with children?  Islam is not called the religion of pedophiles for nothing:

“A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed.

A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man’s four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl’s sister.”

Iranian (Islamic) police rape and murder woman for "bad hijab"

Now don’t get any ideas: nothing to do with Islam! Islam is a religion of peace. Real Muslims wouldn’t do a thing like that. Don’t believe the right wing media. Don’t watch FOX TV. Don’t read racist Islamophobic blogs like WoJ or JW. Go to your local mosque and get to know some Muslims, you will see they are  really nice people. They wouldn’t lie to you!

Sharia Alert from the Islamic Republic of Iran: “26 Year Old Woman Raped and Murdered by Basij Members for ‘Bad Hijab,” from Persian2English, July 11 (from JW thanks to Pamela Geller):

According to HRANA [Human Rights Activists News Agency], Elnaz Babazadeh, a 26 year old woman was raped and murdered by Basij forces in the city of Tabriz (northwestern Iran) last week.

Obama commented instantly:

“We will listen carefully, we will bridge misunderstandings, and we will seek common ground. We will be respectful, even when we do not agree….”

Rape & Torture are totally un-Islamic!

Its their way to protect women: “The intentions of the savage Basij members was to put a stop to the “improper” way women in society  are dressed. Basij members believe this is their duty to God….”

Or perhaps not:

Fartwa against dogs

Iran cleric says dogs “unclean” and not to be kept as pets

Thanks to the RoP

Muhammad, profit of Islam, hated dogs too. Every soldier of Allah seeks to emulate Muhammad because he was the perfect man, uswa hasana, al insan al kamil……

(Reuters) – A senior Iranian cleric has decreed dogs are “unclean” and should not be kept as pets — a move aimed at discouraging Western-style dog ownership in the Islamic state, a newspaper reported on Saturday

Dogs are considered “unclean” under Islamic tradition but, while relatively rare in Iran, some people do keep them as pets.

By issuing a fatwa — a religious ruling — Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi has sent a clear message that this trend must stop.

“Friendship with dogs is a blind imitation of the West,” he was quoted as saying in Javan daily. “There are lots of people in the West who love their dogs more than their wives and children.”

With the approaching first anniversary on June 12th of last year’s controversial Iranian presidential elections, officials of the Islamic Republic are bracing for possibly millions of protestors pouring into the streets in a show of strength that could eventually spell the end of the government’s 30-year reign of terror and oppression. So terrified is the current regime, apparently, that the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, on the recent celebration of Ayatollah Khomeini’s birthday, ordered all Iranians living abroad to return to their native land to be hanged or jailed for being “enemies of the Islamic Republic.”
