Muslims Insist Rape Stay Legal

Attempts to introduce civilization into Muslim Pakistan are not going well.

One of the little perks of being a Muslim is that rape is essentially legal. Under sharia law (which is now spreading in Britain), rape cannot be proven without the testimony of four male witnesses. Prosecuting rape in a Muslim society is virtually impossible; if anyone is punished, it will be the woman for complaining.

Musharraf's government recently attempted to replace sharia with civil penal code where rape and adultery are concerned, but is apparently backing down under pressure from Muslim leaders who have issued a fatwa against the change, which they denounce as "un-Islamic," "immoral," and worst of all, evidence of "Western values infiltrating society."

Although it is hardly immoral to treat women at least as well as you would treat a dog, the imams are correct on the other two counts.

In the eyes of Islamists, women are fit only for, in no particular order: cooking, cleaning, breeding and beating.

. . by clicking on the upper hyperlink below, you'll bring up the graphic that illustrates my proposed concept for a 9/11 memorial , , ,'

. . . oh, yeah, you might think that the "circled A" detail looks familiar . . . well, it is . . . it was lifted from a royalty-free photo of the moon . . .

. . . as for why the moon should figure so significantly in this memorial, well, let me tell you it took me quite a while to get some inkling as to the REAL motivation of the "gollums", who either rammed or attempted to ram those airline jets into civilian targets . . .

. . . anyway, after viewing the graphic, please consider clicking on the hyperlink just underneath the first hyperlink mentioned . . . I believe the text at the other end divulges in precise and concise terms just what the hell was in the back of the mind of those bloodthirsty antiquated poltroons . . .

proposed 9/11 memorial

. . . oh, yeah, you might be put off a bit by the text . . . okay, so it's only fair to mentioned the blog post in question may be unsuited for perusal by people with squeamish disposition . . .
