(Focus)   Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye. The lack of depth perception will hide exactly how closely their husband is standing to that young boy   ( focus-fen.net) divider line

Why don't they just cut to the chase and force their (multiple) wives to stay tied to the bed naked all day?

Meh... they can run their country and treat their citizens however they want. I've got fields to plough and beer to drink.

Until they start building nukes and decide the West is too immoral.

Or when they start coming here and send death threats to immoral Muslims.

This is just to keep their sexual urges going -- look, the more you make something taboo, the more exciting it is when you get to see it. These Saudi guys probably splurge all over the place when they catch a glimpse of an ankle, where on the other hand in Japan, unless their wives bring their sister, an octopus and three ferrets to bed covered in chocolate, they just can't get it up.

These muslim clerics are just trying to ensure the reliability of their boners, that's all.

/not really, but I hope you enjoyed the imagery

Is the bed covered in chocolate? or are the ferrets? This is important.

Why don't they just behead all Muslim women, we all know they're born naked and that a naked female is just plain sacrilege to these people.

Some versions of hijab (the veil) HAVE NO EYEHOLES AT ALL. They have a crocheted mesh area around the eyeholes. Like a lacy area you're supposed to peek out of. It's mostly in the Gulf and parts of Afghanistan.

I've actually worn one, I can tell you, it's just like you'd think. They farking suck. It's moist as hell in there, and you can't see a damn thing.

If you have any oldsters in your 'hood from the middle east, ask them why, if Iran was importing miniskirts and Nikons in the 70's, they insist on crap like this now. It's a charming tale.

At least they won't have to worry about any threat from killer bees.

Or they could just preach self restraint. Why does it seem that every one of these stories is just saying that muslim men are serial rapists that can be set off by the smallest thing? Perhaps teaching kids that rape is a bad thing would work better. Instead they use any hint of flesh to impose themselves on women.

Big deal.

I look at them with scorn and amusement anyway, regardless of what they wear.

I would just like to point out that this is in no way any more ridiculous than the christian rule that we must all wear clothing at all.

Don't be a hypocrite.

Iranian revolution. Basically, the illiterate and the religious zealots didn't like that the country was a puppet to the Americans and British. So they staged a rebellion and now the illiterate and religious zealots run the country. Go read 'Persepolis' (a graphic novel) by Marjane Satrapi. Its a good book and details things all about the revolution.

I thought King Abdullah was starting to crack down on some of this stupid shiat. Also, was this guy just spewing this crap on a teevee show, or was it an actual fatwa?

All farketts should post pics of themselves wearing only an eye patch in protest of this. Get on it ladies.

Until the Christians made the "must wear clothes rule", did the rest of the world run around naked? China has never been a Christian nation, are they all naked in public over there?

Because people have been wearing clothes long before the introduction of Christianity as a religion?

Whenever I hear of the ways they cover up women in various parts of the world (okay, mostly the Middle East), I always think of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. In short, it was this huge, complicated intricate book of instructions. If a dead guy got them all right, then he returned to life. If he didn't return to life, well he must have got something wrong, right?

So they put these women in all these heavy clothes, restricted lives, etc. But when a women gets assaulted ANYHOW, well... She just must have done something wrong! Assholes, the lot of them.
