Bare Naked Islam

Women in Iran are throwing off their veils, otherwise known as hijabs. Women in Iran have been forced by law to wear the hijab (headscarf) ever since the Islamic Revolution of 1979. Indeed, going without the hijab is punishable by 70 lashes or 60 days in prison. Yet, led by a Facebook campaign titled “My Stealthy Freedom”, some Iranian women are daring to post public photographs of themselves veil-less with hair showing, in violation of Iran’s laws and in protest against Sharia law.
How are Muslim “feminists” in the West going to cope with this? They have worked so darn hard to fight for the right of Muslim women to be covered in America and Europe – and not just with hijabs, but with the full abaya and niqab as well, revealing only their eyes. After all, it’s “liberating” not to have men look at you with lust in their eyes, not to be objectified into a sexual object. True, one could refrain from romping the city streets in Madonna-like bra-shirts and mini-skirts that show too much, but why stop there? Muslim men are particularly alpha in nature and simply cannot control themselves around women who seduce them by merely exposing their hair. Nor should they have to. And for westerners to fail to understand this is just plain culturally insensitive.
In Islamic countries, the hijab is a political as well as religious statement. It is forced upon Muslim women by men, in order to let everyone know that, well, they are Muslim. Its significance is that under Sharia law, Muslims are superior to the rest of us infidels. That’s why even Jews and Christians are required to adhere to Islamic Sharia law. It’s the reason it’s forbidden to repair an old church or synagogue and the reason Christian and Jewish prayer is disallowed in public yet, Muslims can build as many mosques as they desire and ring Minaret bells 5 times a day in a call to Islamic prayer. It’s the reason that an infidel’s testimony is not permitted in Sharia courts, and the reason that acts of murder against infidels are not punishable by the Hudud criminal code. It’s the reason that infidels must walk on the side of the street, and strip naked to provide a Muslim his clothes if he is in need, free of charge, of course. And it’s the reason that Muslims are forbidden to befriend “people of the book”, those evil Jews and Christians who keep insisting on loving their neighbors and turning the other cheek. Dammit, don’t they understand that Allah wants martyrs who are willing to blow themselves up in the holy war to kill as many kuffar as they can?? How stupid can they be? Such is the fate of the infidel….

The video, which has been made private on YouTube on its original channel but has been grabbed and uploaded by others, shows three men and three women dancing to the deliriously joyous song. The women appear to have committed two crimes against the kings of mullahrky — they’re dancing with men, and they’re not wearing hijabs. Crime #3 is enjoying a single moment of life. The “Happy” six are seen dancing around in an apartment and on a rooftop. Their video picked up 200,000 views before the mullahs got mad about it.
Here is a screenshot from the video. Covering this face would be a crime. I’m not even kidding.

Despite the fact that numerous Muslim organizations have denounced Boko Haram, and Islamic apologists have kept up a steady stream of articles claiming that their actions are “un-Islamic,” when Neil Munro of the Daily Caller contacted Muslim leaders in the U.S. and asked them to pronounce takfir on Boko Haram – that is, declare it to be non-Muslim – they refused.
“There is a great reluctance to excommunicate someone by extension. … It would be like convicting someone in absentia,” said Imam Johari Abdul-Malik of the notorious Dar Al-Hijrah mosque in northern Virginia, where Anwar al-Awlaki was once the imam. But in fact, as Abdul-Malik certainly knows, the Qur’an sanctions the sexual use of captive women (4:3; 4:24), and thus Boko Haram is not really doing anything un-Islamic at all. U.S. Muslim groups won’t pronounce takfir on it because they know that Boko Haram has a perfectly good case based on the Qur’an, and that Muslims in their community would be indignant towards them if they pronounce “takfir” on a group that is following the Qur’an.
The legalistic approval of evil. Hitchcock could have made something of that. Today’s Hollywood stars almost certainly won’t – not when its context is Sharia.
