Motorcycling okay for Muslimas but no slim jeans!
June 17, 2012Indonesia is often put forward as proof that Islam does not need to be violent and stupid as Arabic Islam, which of course is over-ridden by brutal Arab culture.
Unfortunately, that idea is just more Muslim lies. Let's allow the Indonesians to tell their own story.
News from MSNBC of all places!
Sharia Islamic police stop women on motorcycles for wearing tight jeans, during a Sharia law police raid in Banda Aceh, Indonesia on Thursday. Shops in Indonesia's Aceh province, where Islamic law is in force, will soon be banned from selling tight-fitting clothes, an official said on June 7. The announcement was made after religious police in the provincial capital, Banda Aceh, stopped and reprimanded more than 50 women and three men for violating the Islamic dress code, including wearing tight clothing and shorts.Jakarta Post reports:
Indonesia says several churches in Aceh were ordered shut not because of deepening religious conflict or intolerance, but because they did not have local permits.
The buildings were not approved for religious use, Home Affairs Minister Gamawan Fauzi told The Straits Times.From Arabtimesonline:
Authorities in Indonesia say 10 men and a woman have been publicly caned for gambling and immoral behavior under Islamic law in conservative Aceh province.
Prosecutor's office official Putra Masduri said nine people convicted of gambling were caned four to 12 times.
He said Saturday that two others — a man and woman — were caned nine times after being found naked together by local residents.Christian Science Monitor reports:
In his canary yellow t-shirt and skinny jeans Banu Prasdana looks like an ordinary Indonesian kid. But last year when he sported more than a dozen piercings and a Mohawk and wandered Banda Aceh's streets playing rock ballads on his guitar he had a canny ability to unnerve the local police, who considered him a menace to a social order governed by strict Islamic law.From the Jakara Globe:
The fate of a gender equality bill pending in Indonesia’s parliament and aligned with the United Nations convention on the elimination of all forms discrimination against women (CEDAW) has become uncertain after falling afoul of powerful Islamist groups.
No fewer than six major Islamic organizations have formally objected to the equality bill on the ground that some of its articles go against Islamic values in the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation where 80 percent of its 238 million people are followers of the faith.These are just a few stories from the last 30 days from "moderate" Indonesia. It looks like it's becoming more and more like the Islamic paradises of the Arabs.
It is Almost Midnight in the West. You owe it to your children and grandchildren to rid the West of Islam.
Just so you will understand I have no particular animus against Indonesia, here's a video from Pakiland.
