Professor Victim Of "Political Correctness" In Massaland. !

Offend 'Diversity,' Lose Your Job

The combination of academic social-justice Leftism and Islam is getting nastier by the day:
An Ohio music professor who said Muslim women and girls are safer in the U.S. than in any Middle Eastern country has been forced to retire. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports University of Cincinnati assistant professor Clifford Adams has been placed on administrative [leave] for the remainder of the semester and will retire May 1. He made the comment online to a Muslim student who had criticized Donald Trump’s presidency and spoke about freedom and diversity. Adams wrote “how dare” she complain. Protest and/or sent a Tweet to POTUS ! He will set things right.!
Adams didn’t respond immediately Friday to a request for comment. He earlier wrote a letter to The Enquirer saying he was “deeply sorry” and was trying to have a “lively, provocative, scholarly argument.” School spokesman Greg Vehr says the university is “committed to excellence and diversity.” WTF does that mean . IOW, he buckled under pressure instead of defending the Prof !
Excellence and diversity... right. Well, that's certainly a funny way of showing a commitment to the former, at least. But "diversity," now that's a different story. :mrgreen:
More here from the Cincinnati Enquirer, including a picture of the villain: A University of Cincinnati professor is no longer teaching after making anti-Islamic comments toward a Muslim student. One of his comments on her assignment read: “Muslim females are safer in America than in any Middle Eastern country. How dare you complain while enjoying our protection!” The university investigated College-Conservatory of Music Assistant Professor Clifford Adams' comments after The Enquirer reported them in October. Another UC student had posted a photo of the exchange on Facebook.
"How dare you complain"? Easily, alas. There will be no scholarly arguments here, comrade, and no hurting the feelings of any snowflake student by a mean old member of the patriarchy. And remember -- Facebook is watching you. :mrgreen:

Some high schools administrations in Europe and North America, (and in Canada as well ) have "cautioned" their students to avoid bringing ham and pork items for lunch, so as not to avoid their co-Muslim students . And some Muslim students have "demanded" and got a "special " Prayer room assigned to them for their Friday Prayers !!!

UK's top judge uses Sharia principles to justify that a muslim woman can uncover her face while giving testimony.
I am sure UK's legal system demands that people respect the law above their own personal beliefs.
So why this usage of Sharia to justify things for Muslim women?
UK Judge Demolishes Sharia !

In This Day Age Of Women Empowerment, Islamic Ayeshas Challenge The Veracity Of The Hadith - The Islamic Gospel Truth :D

Did Prophet Muhammad really say what they say he said? Muslims re-examine the words of their Prophet
Did Muhammad Really Say That?
By Omar Sacirbey
The Washington Post

Jihaad Abdul-Majid has often found inspiration in the words and deeds of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, from his acts of compassion and charity to his counsel that followers treat women fairly and help the poor.At the same time, other sayings that implied female inferiority and intolerance toward other religions troubled the 23-year-old student at the University of Louisville in Kentucky.“These issues have pushed me to seek more knowledge,” said Abdul-Majid, who recently enrolled in an online course about the hadith, the collected stories of what Muhammad and his closest companions said and did.
Muslims hold the hadith second only to the Koran as a source of Shariah law and personal guidance. For centuries, Muslims have hotly debated the hadith, often coming to vastly different conclusions about what lessons to draw from Muhammad’s life. The Sunni and the Shia interpretation of the same Hadith may be two different animals !
Now, with extremists citing certain sayings to justify violence, intolerance and the oppression of women, moderate Muslim scholars and lay people such as Abdul-Majid are revisiting the collected sayings and opening a debate about their meaning and role in Muslim life.Because the hadith carry so much weight, any new interpretations could have dramatic effects on Muslim societies — influencing views on issues that include the rights of women and religious minorities and the compatibility of Islam with democracy. And a Hyattsville woman, Saida Malik, questions the hadith in part because the stories were gathered by males. Is it Muslim Urban Legend or is it the Hadith which has stated that a female's testimony in Sharia Court is equal to only half of a male :roll:
Yet even those who advocate change acknowledge it won’t come easily. “There’s resistance because it means changing the culture,” said Pamela Taylor, ( Unless she is an Islamic convert, keeping her "old name", can she legitimately pass judgement on an Islamic matter like this !) co-chairwoman of the Progressive Muslim Union. “It’s a very threatening thing to look hard at your religion and say we’ve been doing it wrong for the last 1,100 years.”
Muhammad commanded followers not to record what he said to guard against the possibility that they would confuse his words with God’s. Instead, Muslims kept the sayings alive orally. And oral sayings tend to get distorted as it passes from generation to generation :D
By the early 9th century, about 200 years after Muhammad’s death, as many as 700,000 sayings( sounds high figure IMO )were circulating across the Muslim world. Many were of questionable credibility and some were even fabricated to support political or economic policies.Leading scholars decided that the sayings should be collected and verified. Using a painstaking process, they traced the chain of narration and scrutinized the character and memory skills of the individual reporters. Is "oral verification" scientific :roll:
The two preeminent hadith scholars, Muhammad ibn Isma’il al-Bukhari and Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj, collected 2,602 and 9,200 hadith, respectively, all of them considered sahih, or “sound,” authentic and indisputable. Other collections exist, but they include sayings with weak links or other defects.Over the centuries, however, weak classifications have not stopped some Muslims from invoking some sayings for political purposes. Others have interpreted sound hadith in ways that many Muslims find inconsistent with other Islamic teachings. Such practices continue today. If any Hadith is "challenged" for whatever reason, the challenger is most likely deemed to be "anti-Malsi :mrgreen:
Consider the dispute around a hadith that says, “A woman may not lead a man in prayer, nor may a Bedouin lead Muhammad’s followers or a corrupt person lead a committed Muslim in prayer.”Sheikh Muhammad Nur Abdullah, president of the Indianapolis-based Islamic Society of North America, last year cited the first third of that hadith in a paper arguing against women as prayer leaders in mixed-gender congregations.Taylor of the Progressive Muslim Union, who supports women-led prayer, argued that the hadith suffers from a weak chain of narrators and is a racist text out of step with Islam’s racial egalitarianism.It was “hypocritical,” she said, to use a hadith knowing it was weak. No Muslim worth his salt, -even in "progressive North America " will stand behind a woman who leads Friday Prayers !
Abdullah acknowledged that the hadith is “weak,” but said he used it only to support other hadith to make his case. He also denied it was racist.Sound narrations that some see as inconsistent with the Koran, or that don’t fit Muhammad’s image as fair and compassionate, can be even more problematic.
For example, in several hadith collected by Bukhari, Muhammad orders adulterers to be stoned to death, although the Koran prescribes a punishment of up to 100 lashes. In recent years, Islamic courts in Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Nigeria ( when is Pakistan going to join this "club" :twisted:) have handed down death sentences in some adultery cases, although it is unclear how many have been carried out.
Saida Malik, a retired federal worker, took matters into her own hands 40 years ago as a young woman in Pakistan when she picked up an Islamic magazine that advocated rejecting any hadith that seemed inconsistent with the Koran or Muhammad’s character. ( Paki Ayesha leading the way to "modernize Malsi" :D)
Malik, who immigrated to Hyattsville almost 30 years ago, said she’s still skeptical about the hadith, partly because they were collected by men.“It’s my iman ,” Malik, 66, said, using the Arabic word for faith, “that he would not have given unreasonable, idiotic advice, which the hadith books are full of.” potential Wajib ul-cutlet material :roll:
This year, for example, Afghan judges justified their death sentence for a Muslim convert to Christianity based on a death sentence handed down by Muhammad to an apostate. Yet most Muslim scholars condemned the Afghan judges, citing examples from Muhammad’s life in which he urged tolerance for people of other faiths. They noted that the man ordered by Muhammad to die was not guilty of changing religions, but of treason.[color=#0000FF] "The Book", in spite of being "the word of God" is full of contradictions ![/quote][/color]
“In the prophet’s time, there was a tacit understanding that things would change as circumstances changed,” said Ebrahim Moosa, an Islamic studies professor at Duke University. “We need to re-evaluate our canon of interpretation.” Is he in a position of authority to make judgement or is that job left to the Mullahs, Imams, Muftis and the Ayatollahs!

Rise of violent Buddhist rhetoric in Asia defies stereotypes

HONG KONG: Buddhism may be touted in the West as an inherently peaceful philosophy, but a surge in violent rhetoric from small but increasingly influential groups of hardline monks in parts of Asia is upending the religion's tolerant image.

Buddhist mobs in Sri Lanka last week led anti-Muslim riots that left at least three dead and more than 200 Muslim-owned establishments in ruins, just the latest bout of communal violence there stoked by Buddhist nationalists.

In Myanmar, ultra-nationalist monks led by firebrand preacher Wirathu have poured vitriol on the country's small Muslim population, cheering a military crackdown forcing nearly 7,00,000 Rohingya into Bangladesh.

And in neighbouring Thailand, a prominent monk found himself in hot water for calling on followers to burn down mosques.

What has prompted this surge in aggressive rhetoric from followers of a faith that is so often equated, rightly or wrongly, with non-violence?

For many in the West, schooled in Buddhism via the beatniks, Hollywood, meditation classes, tropical holidays and inspirational Dalai Lama quotes, the visceral response of these monks can be a shock.

But Michael Jerryson, an expert on religion at Youngstown State University who has just completed a book exploring Buddhism and violence, says throughout history some Buddhists — like any faith — have used religion to justify violence.

"There's a common mindset, whether it's Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand... that Buddhism is somehow under threat," he said, describing the latest incarnation of violent Buddhist rhetoric.

"Each area has its own history, its own causes and instigators, but these instigators are also interlinked."

In many recent cases around Asia, this aggression has been targeted toward Muslims.

After the Taliban's destruction of the Bamiyan Buddha statues in Afghanistan and the "war on terror" rhetoric, Jerryson says, warped historical grievances have "collided with recent Islamophobia".

Despite centuries of largely peaceful co-existence and trading, Buddhist fundamentalist groups portray Islam as invasive, toppling ancient Buddhist empires in Malaysia and Indonesia and now threatening the same for modern Buddhist nations through jihad or high birth rates.

Myanmar's Wirathu has built a following railing against Muslims in incendiary sermons both in person and on Facebook — which closed down his page in January.

While Muslims make up less than four percent of Myanmar's population, Wirathu paints a millenarian portrait of an Islamic plot to eradicate Buddhism.

His Ma Ba Tha group was instrumental in pushing laws to restrict interfaith marriages and changing religion.

In Sri Lanka, Buddhist militancy has gone mainstream, with clergy seen clashing with riot police and leading anti-government protests.

During the brutal 26-year civil war, the ire of ultra-nationalists among the mainly Buddhist Sinhalese majority was focused on the island's Tamil Hindus.

But after the Tamil Tigers were beaten in 2009, hardliners turned on Muslims, who make up some 10 percent of the population.

Monk Galagodaatte Gnanasara, the movement's most prominent leader, is on bail facing hate speech charges and insulting the Koran.

"The Koran should be banned in the country," he said recently. "If you don't, we will go from house to house and campaign till it is banned."

His movement BBS — Buddhist Force — hosted Wirathu and his followers in September 2014.

In Thailand, anti-Muslim hardliners have had less success.

Thai columnist Sanitsuda Ekachai says years of corruption scandals have undermined faith in the clergy.

"Subsequently, local monks' ethnic prejudices carry far less weight with the public and state authorities than their counterparts in Myanmar and Sri Lanka," she told AFP.

But there have been flashes of tension such as in the country's Malay Muslim-majority south, where a brutal insurgency has killed more than 6,500 civilians in the last decade.

Most of the dead are Muslim civilians, but Buddhist monks have also been targeted by militants, fuelling animosity towards Islam.

Maha Apichat, a young and influential ex-monk, used Facebook to call on followers to burn down a mosque for every monk. He was later defrocked.

Experts say Buddhist clergy can trigger violence without directly participating.

"With a couple of very rare exceptions Buddhist monastic groups don't carry out the violence themselves," explains Iselin Frydenlund, from the Norwegian School of Theology, who has written extensively about what she dubs "Buddhist protectionist" movements in Myanmar and Sri Lanka.

"But what they will do is provide the justification for the use of violence carried out by others, be they vigilante groups, civilians, police or soldiers."

It is not just global Islamophobia fuelling these groups, she adds — colonial history, globalisation and the advance of secularism play their part.

"People feel they are losing their traditions."

Puangthong Pawakapan, a politics expert at Bangkok's Chulalongkorn University, points to an earlier threat to monks from the recent past — communism.

During the height of the Cold War in the 1970s, one of Thailand's most prominent right-wing monks — Kittiwuttho — famously told followers it was "no sin to kill communists".

Jerryson says he fears the recent religious communalism could spread to vulnerable minorities, such as Buddhists in Bangladesh's Chittagong Hill Tracts. Wake up Mr. Jerryson - This has been achieved in Bangladesh!

"By labelling Muslims as adversaries to Buddhism, which historically has not been true, it solidifies the perception that the relationship is adversarial," he warns.What about the marginalization of Buddhists by the Islamisation of Malaysia and Indonesia?

"The damage is being done, there is a breakdown of trust, a building of fears."

The New Interior Minister Of Germany Delivers A "Tough Message" To The Muslims Of Germany .

Islam does not belong to Germany, new interior minister says

BERLIN: New Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said Islam did not belong to Germany, in an interview published on Friday, setting him on a collision course with Chancellor Angela Merkel who has stressed the need to integrate Muslims.
“My message is: Muslims need to live with us, not next to us or against us,” said Seehofer, who was sworn in as interior minister on Wednesday. Agree 100%. These immigrants should not be "molycoddled"

Joh Toba Qalandar Shah mein gaandu hai woh Telford mein bhi gaandu hai. Rochdale and Rotherham Redux in Telford.

From the Islamic Emirate of England, held Scotland, Wales and English Administered Ireland aka UK, news report emerging over the past week or so of a massive and long established case of Paedophile Sexual Grooming of mainly Christist Caucasian Children by mainly fellow Abrahamic Mohammadden Adults originating in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

And yet again, as in previous cases of paedophile sexual grooming in the Islamic Emirate of England, held Scotland, Wales and English Administered Ireland at places like Rochdale and Rotherham, not to mention cases of other crimes such as Terrorism, the UK media continues providing a burqua aka burka to camouflage the fact that these despicable acts are mainly being carried out by Mohammadden Adults originating in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan by liberally using the term “Asian Men” resulting in this peeved article in one of the few media outlets calling a Pakistani Mohammadden Paedophile just that.

Apparently in the UK while it is racist to point out that the paedophile is a Mohammadden Pakistani it is not racist to insinuate that “Asians” were involved despite the fact that Mohammaddens or Pakistani’s do not constitute the majority of “Asians”:

It is estimated that up to 1,000 young, mainly white girls have been raped, sexually abused, abducted, trafficked and some even murdered in Telford, Shrops.

The abusers are said to be “Asian”. Except “Asian” doesn’t quite do it. The vile men are not Filipino or Japanese. They are once again reported to be largely Muslim, and largely from Pakistan. …………………..

The abuse of young white girls by Muslim men apparently began in the 1980s. It took the police more than 20 years to tackle it. The social services departments didn’t seem to care, either.

Nobody cared. People were too worried about being seen as racist. So nothing got done, for years and years. ……………………….


The UK Tabloid The Sun:

Yet again, young girls were being abused in Telford — and yet again, nobody seemed to care :
From the social services to the police, it seems people were too worried about being called a racist rather than helping mainly white girls abused, trafficked and some murdered by largely Muslim men

Seminary teacher arrested for 'rape' of nine-year-old boy in Karachi

When Mohammadden belief based Shariah strictures in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan cloisters away women, it is inevitable that male homosexual rape and/or homosexual sexual assault with paedophile overtones crops up.

Meanwhile the posted incident that targeted a 9 year old boy child in Karachi is not the first but at least the fourth case within the last two months where a Mohammadden Cleric has got himself involved in paedophilic homosexual rape and/or paedophilic homosexual sexual assault. Clearly if these four Mohammadden clerics die and make it to Jannat, given their sexual preference for little boys, they would will be greatly disappointed with being supplied virgin Houri’s.

Lahore teenager accuses cleric of rape

February 20, 2018:

Cleric held for rape of minor boy

January 31, 2018:

Cleric arrested in Islamabad for physically harassing 12-year-old foreigner

Further this deviant behaviour constitutes no stray event in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Similar incidents of paedophile homosexual rape have been frequently reported. Indeed I suspect that the incidents of this nature, by standards of prevalence of deviant behaviour, are quite widespread in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan making it the Paedophile Homosexual Rape and Paedophile Homosexual Sexual Assault Capital of the Indian Sub-Continent. News articles from 2018, which is not even three months old, reporting incidents of paedophile homosexual rape/sexual assault in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan follow to demonstrate the point.

Article in Geo that Police have registered a case against a 30 year old man for marrying a pre teen 11 year old girl child.:

Thirty-year-old forcibly marries 11-year-old in Ubauro

In the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan which claims for itself status as an Ideological Muslim State and Islamic Republic, would not registering a case against the groom for emulating the practises of the founder of Mohammaddenism per Mohammadden text of Hadith number 69 of book number 67 of Sahih al-Bukhari, constitute a haram act on the part of the Police and call for Jihad, Bull Cutletting aka Wajib ul Qatal or some such? The cited Shahih al-Bukhari hadith says that the founder of the Mohammadden belief who when around 51/52 years old married a girl child aged 6 and consummated marriage when the girl child turned 9 and he was around 54/55 years old. Refer link to hadith of Shahi Bukhari and text therefrom posted below.

Sahih al-Bukhari » Book of Wedlock, Marriage (Nikaah) » Hadith

Narrated `Aisha:

that the Prophet (ﷺ) married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

Saudia Long A Bastion Of Islamism And Extremism Does A 360* Before MBS Meets POTUS Tomorrow :roll:

Saudi crown prince says those who forbid mixing between two sexes are ‘extremists’

"We have extremists who forbid mixing between the two sexes and are unable to differentiate between a man and a woman alone together and their being together in a work place. Many of those ideas contradict the way of life during the time of the Prophet," he said. Many Saudi Mullahs are still against any minimum marriage age for girls. A recent proposal to set up minimum age to 15 years was shot down by the Saudi Ulemas . May be "it also contradicts the way of life during the time of the prophet" ( PBUH) :twisted:

Thirty Nine Indians rewarded with Tender Loving Care by the Followers of the World's Only Religion of Peace!

I had been saying all 39 others were dead: Lone survivor Harjit Masih

CHANDIGARH: Harjit Masih, the lone survivor who had managed to flee from ISIS captivity in Iraq in June 2014 following his abduction along with 39 other Indians there, today said he had been maintaining for the last three years that all others had been killed.

"I had been saying for the last three years that all 39 Indians had been killed (by ISIS terrorists)," Masih today said.

"I had spoken the truth," asserted Masih, resident of village Kala Afghana in Gurdaspur district of Punjab.

Masih was one of the 40 Indian workers abducted by ISIS terrorist outfit.

His statement came after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj today informed Parliament that all the 39 Indian workers, abducted by ISIS in Iraq nearly three years ago, were killed and their bodies have been recovered.

Masih said they were killed in front of my eyes and I had been saying all these years, wondering why the government was not accepting what he had said earlier.

Giving details of the incident, Masih said that Indians were working at a factory in Iraq in 2014.
"But we were kidnapped by militants and kept hostage for some days," he said.

On the fateful day, they were made to sit on their knees and the militants then opened fire upon them.

"I was fortunate to have survived though a bullet hit my thigh and I fell unconscious," he said.

He, however, managed to return to India after giving a slip to the ISIS militants suffering gun wound.
As many as 39 Indians, who had gone to Iraq to earn their livelihood, had been missing since 2014.

Among them, several were from Amritsar, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Kapurthala and Jalandhar in Punjab.

Above attack on the Mohammadden Sabbath of Friday aka Jumma, sadly a fatal reminder for the majority Abrahamic Christists of France of the dangers posed by Mohammadden Terrorism.

Having sown the seed of Mohammadden Terrorism by injudiciously allowing immigration of Mohammaddens, France inevitably though regrettably brings upon herself the whirlwind of Allahu Akbaring acts of Mohammadden Terrorism!

Using the Mohammadden belief based slogan of Allah Hu Akbar while carrying out violent attacks seems to be becoming quite commonplace and geographically widespread notwithstanding many politically prominent leaders of Mohammadden majority countries piously insisting that Mohammaddenism is the belief of Peace. Besides the present attack in the France, weblinks for some of the other Allahuakbaring attacks which have taken place in the US, Turkey, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium and Germany, follow:

2-The seeds of the #Viciouscircle that the Mideast region finds itself in today were planted at least 5 decades ago. Excessive public spending without matching revenues were the catalyst to a faulty & dangerous incentive system that helped to balloon populations beyond control

Modern And Progressive Dubai And Abu Dhabi ( AKA UAE ) ( For PR purposes onlee :mrgreen: ) Cracks The "Islamic Whip" On Transgender Rights !

UAE court rejects trans men from changing their names and gender in legal documents

UAE: Three transgender men filed a lawsuit to change their names and gender in the legal documents but were rejected after getting rejected they appealed the federal court and were turned down from there as well. These three transgender men are battling for their rights.
Three women who underwent sex change procedures in Europe filed a case to register their male names and to change their gender from female to male in the government’s national registry. These three trans men provided documents in which the European hospitals had recommended the procedure due to congenital defects and male characteristics.
The difficult and complex battle of these trans men started from federal court after getting rejected there they challenged the ruling with an appeal court which upheld the first court’s ruling. Mansouri presented his case by giving the details of how the court overlooked the details of medical evidence which was extensive but the medical committee was reluctant and missed the important point as these women faced disorders from a very young age. In most of these Arabs and Islamic countries ( like Turkee, Saudia, UAE, Pakiland) the image and the underlying reality are two different things. This may well be the reality "progressive Dubai" which has also promised to be the first Arab country to fly tourists into space :mrgreen:
The current situation indicates that these women will have to wait and fight for their rights until they get what they want it can take a lot of time and money including all the mental pressure. :D

UK teacher jailed for trying to recruit 'army of children' for attacks

LONDON: A British supporter of Islamic State who tried to recruit over 100 children into an “army” of militants to carry out a wave of attacks across London was jailed for a minimum of 25 years.

Umar Haque, 25, showed the children beheading videos and other violent militant propaganda, forced them to re-enact deadly attacks on the British capital and made them role-play attacking police officers.

“His plan was to create an army of children to assist with multiple terrorist attacks throughout London,” said Dean Haydon, head of the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command. “He tried and he did, we believe, radicalize vulnerable children from the ages of 11 to 14.”

Despite having no qualifications and being employed as an administrator, police say Haque used the guise of teaching Islamic studies to groom 110 children into becoming militants at the Lantern of Knowledge, a small private Islamic school, and at a madrassa connected to the Ripple Road Mosque in east London.

His intention was to use them to attack London targets such as Big Ben, soldiers from the Queen’s Guards, a large shopping center, banks, and media stations, prosecutors said at his trial.

Believed to have been self-radicalized online, Haque was inspired by an attack in March last year when Khalid Masood ploughed a rented car into pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge, killing four, before stabbing to death a police officer in the grounds of parliament.

Haque was found guilty at London’s Old Bailey Court earlier this month of several offences including preparing terrorist acts, having previously pleaded guilty to four charges.

Saudi "Malsi Scholar" Does A 360* And Now Says That "Abaya For Women Not Compulsory In Islam ". So, A "Mistake" Is Now Corrected After Hundreds Of Years !

Abaya for women not compulsory in Islam: Top Saudi Scholar

RIYADH- Sheikh Ahmed al-Ghamdi, former head of the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice in Mecca, (aka "religious police" ) said that the statement of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman <link> regarding the “abaya” not being obligatory (all black cloak or dress), is consistent with the teachings of Islam. Speaking his master's (MBS) voice :mrgreen:
He pointed out that the black color is not the only one permitted by Islamic law, but it happened due to the exploitation of certain fatwas by “Al Sahwa” group, and the promotion of the concept of the head cover and black color, as the main dress code (hijab) for Saudi women. As they say, the devil is in the details . He has to come up with "something" to justify the "moderate" tone that his master (MBS) is mouthing in Massaland !
Al-Ghamdi said in an interview with Al Arabiya: "The cloak is meant for maintaining a modest look and it does not have to be black. If a woman wears clothes that serve the same purpose for her to be able to perform her duties whether to work or study, that’s fine. Then why were Saudi women flogged in shopping malls and other public places- by his dept - during the last 50+ years :roll:
In other stories, he said: “There were some exaggerations obliging women to wear black, they refer to what Umm Salamah said that the women of Ansar appeared like “crows” when the verses referring to women attire were revealed, so they took on the color black as per their interpretation of the women’s reaction back then, but there is nothing that states women are obliged to do so. Other narratives show that the prophet’s wives wore colored clothes.” Al Sahwa group enforced it . Has he send these "revised directives" to his Paki allies like Maulana Ghazi of the Red Mosques. His "female students" always wear the shuttlecock attire !
However, the interpretation of the verse, " O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring over themselves [part] of their outer garments," mean that women need to wear something that is not revealing whether it is abaya or any other piece of clothing without a specific distinction,” he clarified. - Al Arabiya :roll:

Crown Prince MBS, Ignores "Warning" Of The Green Book On The "Crafty And Stabbing Nature Of The Jews" And Decides To Meet Rabbis In New York !

Saudi Prince Meets New York Rabbis in Rare Interfaith Gesture

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman met a group of religious leaders in New York, including two rabbis, a rare interfaith gesture for the de facto ruler of the conservative Islamic kingdom that allows negligible religious freedoms.The 32-year-old heir to the throne, currently on a three-week tour of the U.S., met two Roman Catholic and three Jewish figures on Wednesday, the Saudi embassy in Washington said in a statement. Saudi Arabia enforces an austere interpretation of Sunni Islam, but Prince Mohammed has said he wants to ease the country toward “moderate Islam, open to the world and all religions.” He is openly defying the "warning" of the Green Book vis- a-vis "making friends" with anyone, who is not a follower of PBUH :twisted: This gesture was preceded by "almost a personal fatwa" allowing Saudi Ayeshas to drive,drink and debauch themselves in front of Saudi and Non Saudi Abduls !
“The meeting emphasized the common bond among all people, particularly people of faith, which stresses the importance of tolerance, coexistence, and working together ( Shias are excluded from this Club !) for a better future for all of humanity,” the embassy said. Although Prince Mohammed had recently met Christian figures, it marks the first time he’s announced a meeting with a Jewish religious leader. Not sure, if this is a genuine "turning over a new leaf" or the application once again, of the famous Malsi concept of Taqqiya :mrgreen:
While foreigners of other religions can worship privately in Saudi Arabia, there are no public churches, temples or synagogues. Importing crosses and other non-Islamic religious imagery -- including the six-pointed Star of David -- is banned, according to the Saudi customs website, and the kingdom’s minority Shiite Muslims complain of discrimination. There are some signs restrictions are softening: Christmas trees were displayed openly in some shops in the capital, Riyadh, for the first time last year. Raheel , the ex Paki COAS , is one of his close advisors, ( and is also responsible for the mayhem and bloodshed of Shias in Yemen ! ) probably had some input in the image-makeover that the "young, brash crown prince" is trying to convey to the non- Islamic world. :D
Prince Mohammed’s meeting included Rabbi Richard Jacobs, president of the Union for Reform Judaism; Rabbi Steven Wernick, head of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism; and Allen Fagin, executive vice president of the Orthodox Union, the embassy said. So- to be on the safe side - he has covered all sections of the Jewish "market segment" ( conservative, orthodox and reform ) [color=#0000FF]( Paki Mullahs should take a "leaf out of his Book" and make a trip to Israel !) :mrgreen:
It’s not the first time a Saudi royal has met a rabbi; the late King Abdullah was photographed multiple times with New York-based Rabbi Marc Schneier. :roll: And "Mush" accepted millions- "as gift" - from the late King who supped with a Yahoodi :roll:

No difference between men and women in Islam, says Prince Mohammed bin Salman :roll:
March 19, 2018

- A bit of "stale news"; before MBS's trumped up US visit . This is Saudia in the pic - with the Western Ayesha . Hence "no western garb" and no "Starbucks Cup" in hand. Considered Haram in Saudia, Halal in Big Apple . Double Standards :mrgreen:
- Understood, that he is THE HEAD OF THE TWO HOLY MOSQUES , being King Of Saudi Arabia . Blah, blah blah . But to make a far reaching statement like " No difference between men and women in Islam" :roll: Is that not the function of the Maulvis, Maulanas, Imams, Pirs, Hazrats and other assorted "authorities" of The Book. MBS is a layman and not a "specialist" in the Hadith and the Fatwa "Department" of Islam. And by the way, have not the Sharia Courts determined that an Ayesha's testimony in Islamic Court is 50% of the Abdul's. An what about the widespread belief that under Islamic Law, the Husband can "lightly punish" the wife physically . How does THAT square in with his statement of = = :roll:

Saudi king reaffirms support for Palestinians after son's pro-Israel comments
AFPUpdated April 03, 2018

Saudi King Salman reaffirmed support for Palestinians to US President Donald Trump, state media said Tuesday, after his son and heir apparent said Israel has a “right” to a homeland.
Left hand does not know what the right hand is doing :roll: King Salman got up on the wrong side of the bed that day :roll: Or the most plausible explanation : Another example of the Islamic practice of Taqqiya . It is OK to lie in the cause of the Religion :twisted:

^^^ My nostrils twitch at the likelihood of the odour of Taqiyyah in Saudi Arbia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s answer.

The question by Jeffrey Goldberg, Editor-In-Chief of the Atlantic, was about Jews having “a right to a nation state in at least part of their ancestral homeland” ie: in what constitutes present day Israel. Mohammed bin Salman’s answer about having a right makes no mention of the words “ancestral homeland”. Consequently I will not be surprised to learn in future that what Mohammed bin Salman meant was that Jews have a right to a nation any place except the Middle East.

Goldberg: Let’s talk about the broader Middle East. Do you believe the Jewish people have a right to a nation-state in at least part of their ancestral homeland?

MbS: I believe that each people, anywhere, has a right to live in their peaceful nation. I believe the Palestinians and the Israelis have the right to have their own land. But we have to have a peace agreement to assure the stability for everyone and to have normal relations.

Islamic Connection To "You Tube" Shooting !

Who is Nasim Aghdam? Everything we know about the YouTube HQ shooter

The woman who opened fire at YouTube's offices in California on Tuesday raged against the video-sharing service for what she saw as censorship of her clips on her niche channel covering vegan issues, animal rights, Persian culture and fitness.
Nasim Aghdam, 39, of Southern California, was identified by police officials as the woman who approached the campus around lunchtime and began to fire before entering the building of the Google-owned video sharing service.
Ms Aghdam’s family say she was “angry” with the company and had complained about YouTube supposedly censoring her videos and cutting her ad revenue. Gives more "ammo" to POTUS for his case to restrict immigration from Islamic countries ! Right or wrong does not matter .

^^^ The linked vehicle based attack in Munster / Muenster / Münster, Germany, surprisingly does not appear to be an act of Mohammadden Terrorism. On the other hand, the below linked foiled Berlin, Germany, half marathon knife attack does appear to a be a familiar case of Mohammadden Terroism.
A case of Germany experiencing a situation of what you lose on the swings you gain on the roundabouts?

German police thwart 'crime' during Berlin Half Marathon : Police have detained six men in Berlin who reportedly have links to the 2016 Berlin Christmas market attack. The lead suspect was planning to attack spectators at the race with knives, according to a newspaper report.

Queen Elizebeth II And PBUH PBUM Are Related According To This Morrocan Report :shock:

Britain's Queen Elizabeth is a descendant of Prophet Mohammad (PBUM), claims a new Report

*London: Britain Queen Elizabeth *is a descendant of Prophet Muhammed, a Moroccan newspaper has claimed, attributing the bizarre finding to a study.According to the Daily Mail, the findings were first published in 1986 by Burke's Peerage, a British authority on royal pedigrees. The Morrocan newspaper has claimed that 43 generations of Queen Elizabeth 's family have been traced to produce the research finding that the Queen is a distant relative of the Prophet. And The Queen is the "Nominal Head" Of The Anglican Church !. How does that "fit in" with the "new findings" :twisted:

Makkah Imam Put In His Place By Crown Prince MBS :roll:

Saudi Arabia closes twitter account of Makkah Imam

IYADH – The Saudi Arabian authorities have closed the twitter account of one of the Imams in the Grand Mosque in Makkah.
Sheikh Saud Al-Shuraim had reportedly posted comments about political and social issues in the Kingdom and criticised what he believes are violations of Islamic teachings. He is not one of the Imams who paid a visit to theLund "Land" Of The Pure last month :mrgreen:
Al-Shuraim was born in Riyadh in 1964. He has held several senior academic positions, including the Dean and Specialist Professor at Umm Al-Qura University in Makkah. He is also a judge at the High Court in the holy city.
His fellow Imam at the Grand Mosque, which houses the Kaaba, is Sheikh Abdul Rahman As-Sudais, who is loyal to the policies of the Saudi royal family. While Al-Shuraim has been praised by Muslims within and beyond the Kingdom over his courageous stances, Al-Sudais has been criticised for his “blind” support for the ruling House of Saud, which is regarded by many as irreligious, according to AlKhaleej Online. Saudi Palace Politics . Nothing new here . Saudi policy is determined as to "what is the mood of the King on that particular day ". The so-called liberalization of Saudi society under the Brand New Crown Prince has to be taken with a "pinch of salt", IMO :mrgreen:
