So not only does the world have to suffer the horrendous human rights abuses, misogyny and unfathomable torture of Islamic law (the sharia), but we are subjected to these nazi-like propaganda campaigns to re-educate us. In other words, if they say this horror is good, then it's good! If they tell us to like it, like it!

Woman faces flogging for uncovered hair

A
SUDANESE woman says she's prepared to be flogged to defend the right to
leave her hair uncovered in defiance of a Taliban-like law.

Amira Osman Hamed faces a possible whipping if convicted at a trial which could come on September 19.

Under Sudanese law, her hair – and that of all women – is supposed to be covered with a "hijab", but Ms Hamed refuses.

The
35-year-old's case has drawn support from civil rights activists and is
the latest to highlight Sudan's series of laws governing morality,
which took effect after the 1989 Islamist-backed coup by President Omar
al-Bashir.

"They want us to be like Taliban women," Ms Hamed said
in an interview with AFP, referring to the fundamentalist rebel movement
in Afghanistan.

She is charged under Article 152 which prohibits "indecent" clothing.

Activists say the vaguely-worded law leaves women subject to police
harassment and disproportionately targets the poor in an effort to
maintain "public order".

Ms Hamed said she was visiting a
government office in Jebel Aulia, just outside Khartoum, on August 27
when a policeman aggressively told her to cover her head.

"He said, 'You are not Sudanese. What is your religion?'"

"I'm Sudanese. I'm Muslim, and I'm not going to cover my head," replied Ms Hamed.

Her dark hair, tinged golden, is braided tight against her scalp with a flare of curls at the back.

In 2009 the case of Lubna Ahmed al-Hussein, a journalist, led to a global outcry and attention toward women's rights in Sudan.

Ms
Hussein was fined for wearing slacks in public but she refused to pay.
She spent one day behind bars until the Sudanese Journalists' Union paid
the fine on her behalf.

Others rounded up with her in a restaurant were flogged.

    Notice the masses of feminists protesting at Sudanese Embassies and consulates !!
    The crowds are overwhelming and so loud, people had to stop work in their environs and listen to the important message !!
    Then I woke up and my hand was in the potty….

    British police say the leader of England’s far-right English Defense League has been charged with flouting restrictions imposed on his group’s London protest.

    Yeah, one can always rely on those progressive feminists… they are as dependable and humane as all those wonderful morally superior socialists.
    Which in reality means: (less than) zero.
    Despicable creatures.

    Again, where are the topless women protesters? Protesting the home office of CAIR! Where are the topless dykes on bikes? That would surely scare islam back to arabia!

    Far right EDL? I’d say the EDL is just about the only democratic, truly progressive movement in the UK right now. Remember what democratic means: a institution, movement or government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them. For the people and by the people.

    The only thing that would scare Islam is constant defeat, total defeat, by democratic means. Defeat them time and time again with facts, and truth. Islam has no defense against the truth (that’s why they hate it so much and explode -pardon the pun- hen confronted with truths) as it is a imperialistic ideology, disguised as a religion, and based on lies, deception and fiction. That’s why we have to pound them relentlessly with the truth and the facts.
    Constant defeat means, from their point of view, that apparently Allah is not with them and/or displeased with them. They’ll eventually retreat and fall back to their accustomed Arabian lethargy and fatalism.
    But I think things have gone too far already for a non-violent change of the course of history. It will be extremely hard, especially since the West is teaming with cowards and traitors. Nevertheless we must give it a damn good try.

    Muslims have proven, and daily continue to prove that they have absolutely no interest in the welfare or happiness of human beings.
    Their prime motivation of islam is not peace or love, it is to protect islam, even if it means occasioning their own death and the death of all of those who oppose it.
    There is a great madness in such a course of life, for it not only denigrates the life of the perpetrator, it insults the great history of truth, civilisation and progress that mankind has striven for.
    In demanding fealty and respect from all humankind, islam reveals its supreme arrogance and its own inherent insecurity.
    The world has come to know islam, not by its adherence to the celebration of mankind and science, but through lies, deceit, duplicity, threats, terrorism, bloodshed and death.
    Such a totalitarian ideology as islam deserves to be exposed regularly by all fearless men and women, because it really does merit scathing derision.

    remember, obama said he’ll go to court to defend those women who want to wear the hi-jab (as if anyone’s denying it) but he won’t do anything about Muslim and non-Muslim women in Islamic countries who DON’T want to wear the headscarf. this woman is brave. too bad she’ll be treated as a fornicator just for refusing to cover her body. let’s hope she finds justice somehow.
