....Sharia Harassers" Attack Non-Veiled Women

More of the fruits of the Muslim Brotherhood's presidential victory continue to appear in Egypt. As reported days after Muhammad Morsi was proclaimed president, self-styled "Sharia-enforcers," not unlike those in Saudi Arabia, began roaming the streets of Egypt, attacking and killing those not deemed "moral" enough-including a 22-year-old student, who was stabbed to death by "bearded, religious Muslims," for walking with his fiancé and refusing to divulge their relationship.

Now more news and details are appearing in regards to what non-veiled women in Egypt are undergoing-which is unsurprising, considering that the Muslim brotherhood, from its inception, has been demanding that Egyptian women be veiled (minus "sex-slaves," of course).

"'Sharia Harassment' Plagues Egyptian Women," Al Monitor, July 4:

Several areas in Egypt are currently witnessing a rise in the phenomenon some are calling "Sharia harassment." Veiled women, and often men as well, intimidate unveiled women and girls for not wearing clothing in line with the rules of Sharia law.

El-Badil newspaper quoted women and girls who confirmed that they had been harassed and intimidated after the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi won the presidential elections. ...

The newspaper monitored the areas of Saida Zeinab, Saad Zaghloul and Nasiriyah, interviewing veiled and unveiled women. The newspaper pointed out that veiled women are criticizing other women and young girls for their clothing. Statements such as: "You will end up at home," "Here's someone who can make you wear the veil" and "Forget about pants, get ready for the veil," are common expressions being used against the non-veiled. These girls are also subject to insults and verbal abuse.

Aya Mohammed, a housewife, said that she has heard veiled women tell girls on the metro, "We'll see if Morsi will let you wear pants again." For her part, Rania Sayed, a student living in Heliopolis, said that a man intercepted her as she was traveling to Mansoura to see her parents. "Get ready to wear the niqab. You better pay attention to the street before you are forced to stay at home," he said.

Nibal Naji, a pharmacist, said that women are most often exposed to harassment in working-class areas....

Moral equivalent of the alleged "Republican war on women?"

In a manifesto posted online, the admitted killer, Anders Behring Breivik, praised Geller. He cited her blog, Atlas Shrugs, and the writings of her friends, allies, and collaborators-Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch, Islam Watch, and Front Page magazine-more than 250 times. And he echoed their tactics, tarring peaceful Muslims with the crimes of violent Muslims. He wrote that all Muslims sought to impose "sharia laws" and that "there are no important theological differences between jihadists and so-called 'peaceful' or 'moderate' Muslims." He reprinted, as part of the manifesto, a 2006 essay by "Fjordman"-a blogger whose work appears frequently on Geller's site-which argued that "radical Muslims and moderate Muslims are allies" and that because Islam teaches deception, no Muslim who claims to be moderate can be trusted.

Yes, I read that post on "Jihad Watch," too.
You were very selective in picking what to post.
Nice attempt at _guilt by association_.

Maybe I'll give the readers here the other side.
Or encourage them to follow "Jihad Watch" for themselves.

Are you saying I'm giving you too much credit
for being able to navigate the Internet?

Hint to the reader: "Loonwatch" ain't it.

Life in Egypt continues to deteriorate after Obama-supported Muslim Brotherhood takeover.

We are not Egypt's keeper...countries have sovereignty...we have to help those there we can to provide for their good...but we can't invade and install a puppet government in every country where there are "rights violations"...

Right, this country has 3 branches of government...the House of Reps needs to worry about jobs in America...not the ultra-wealthy multi-nationals...

I don't even know what that means.

And yet if an American women dares leave the house in this country wearing Yoga pants and has the unmitigated gall to tie her shoes, you whine that she deservesto be leered at. How about stopping street harrassment inside your own eyeballs before you gripe about others?

Or women can just do it ourselves:

So called job creators can only expect benefits of being job creators if they actually create jobs. Unless they do that they are basically useless whiners.

Sounds like they need a "Stand your Ground" law over there.

But, just women get the 'carry and conceal' permit. That should help.

I got jobs from Companies and Governments, never persons...are you a domestic servant or nanny?

If people want to call themselves job creators, they need to create jobs. Otherwise they are just liars.

Now, now, Batty.
When they buy their private jets,.....who do you think builds those things?,....other millionnaires?

Same with yachts.

How about when they spend millions on a Painting? The Artist gets the mone......hmmmm, ok, he's usually dead, that was a bad example. But, you get the drift.

Good idea.
Burkas could conceal some pretty potent weapons.

Democracy in action.

Well, I guess we get to watch the Star of the Middle East move back into the 14th Century. I don't think the Canal is that important, at least to us, anymore, so that shouldn't be a problem. I wonder when the intellectuals will start departing. We should probably prepare for that. Make it a streamlined and easy process to evacuate.

Hahahaha, The Islamists hate anything 'not islamic', ....I wonder when they'll start tearing down the Pyramids?
