Egypt’s Naked Blogger Is a Bomb Aimed at the Patriarchs in Our Minds

November 18, 2011
( Aliaa Mahdy h/t UKGuardian and Libra Bunda) Put on trial the artists’ models who posed nude for art schools until the early 70s, hide the art books and destroy the nude statues of antiquity, then undress and stand before a mirror and burn your bodies that you despise to forever rid yourselves of your sexual hangups before you direct your humiliation and chauvinism and dare to try to deny me my freedom of expression”.

If they only knew at the Guardian what kind of reverse situation we have in the West. Men are denied their freedom to express themselves in the name of feminism… but BRAVO to those who understand proportion and moderation

It was in Egypt, after all, that the ruling military junta stripped women of both headscarves (detained female activists were made to strip) and hymens when it subjected them to “virginity tests” last March, by which a soldier inserted two fingers into their vaginal opening. What are the military’s “virginity tests“, but a cheap tactic to humiliate and silence? When sexual assault parades as a test of the “honour” of virginity, then posing in your parents’ home in nothing but stockings, red shoes and a red hair clip is an attack towards all patriarchs out there.

I’m not drawing a pure direct parallel. Obviously the situation in the West is reactionary; intending to protect women,.. (though at times is downright racist and a means to further power when there are few male heirs in a culture because of low birth rate in the West).


Can an interrogator rape the prisoner in order to obtain a confession?

July 7, 2011

“When human rights came, they saw our jails, they left, and they
said: Jails are good. Civilized, in accordance with democratic, because
the logic is Islamic logic.” –Ayatollah Khomeini (Qom, August 19, 1979) note this was found in a place that has quotes that contradict in many issues. 

“Can an interrogator rape the prisoner in order to obtain a confession?” was the follow-up question posed to the Islamic cleric. Mesbah-Yazdi answered: “The necessary precaution is for the interrogator to perform a ritual washing first and say prayers while raping the prisoner. If the prisoner is female, it is permissible to rape through the vagina or anus. It is better not to have a witness present. If it is a male prisoner, then it’s acceptable for someone else to watch while the rape is committed.” This reply, and reports of the rape of teen male prisoners in Iranian jails, may have prompted the following question: “Is the rape of men and young boys considered sodomy?” Ayatollah Mesbah-Yazdi: “No, because it is not consensual. Of course, if the prisoner is aroused and enjoys the rape, then caution must be taken not to repeat the rape.””  Islam really is the Religion of Piece (of Ass)! One aspect of these permitted rapes troubled certain questioners: “What if the female prisoner gets pregnant? Is the child considered illegitimate?” Mesbah-Yazdi answered: “The child borne to any weakling [a denigrating term for women – ed.] who is against the Supreme Leader is considered illegitimate, be it a result of rape by her interrogator or through intercourse with her husband, according to the written word in the Koran. However, if the child is raised by the jailer, then the child is considered a legitimate Shi’a Muslim.”” 
“Asked if a confession obtained “by applying psychological, emotional and physical pressure” was “valid and considered credible according to Islam,” Mesbah-Yazdi replied: “Getting a confession from any person who is against the Velayat-e Faqih (“Guardianship of the Islamic Jurists”, or the regime of Iran’s mullahs) is permissible under any condition.” The ayatollah gave the identical answer when asked about confessions obtained through drugging the prisoner with opiates or addictive substances. “Can an interrogator rape the prisoner in order to obtain a confession?” was the follow-up question posed to the Islamic cleric. Mesbah-Yazdi answered: “The necessary precaution is for the interrogator to perform a ritual washing first and say prayers while raping the prisoner. If the prisoner is female, it is permissible to rape through the vagina or anus. It is better not to have a witness present. If it is a male prisoner, then it’s acceptable for someone else to watch while the rape is committed.” This reply, and reports of the rape of teen male prisoners in Iranian jails, may have prompted the following question: “Is the rape of men and young boys considered sodomy?” Ayatollah Mesbah-Yazdi: “No, because it is not consensual. Of course, if the prisoner is aroused and enjoys the rape, then caution must be taken not to repeat the rape.””

…it is almost like the Iranians were Liberals. it’s only marriage after all.

“In the Islamic Republic it is illegal to execute a young woman, regardless of her crime, if she is a virgin, he explained. Therefore a “wedding” ceremony is conducted the night before the execution: The young girl is forced to have sexual intercourse with a prison guard – essentially raped by her “husband.” “I regret that, even though the marriages were legal,” he said. Why the regret, if the marriages were “legal?” “Because,” he went on, “I could tell that the girls were more afraid of their ‘wedding’ night than of the execution that awaited them in the morning. And they would always fight back, so we would have to put sleeping pills in their food. By morning the girls would have an empty expression; it seemed like they were ready or wanted to die. “I remember hearing them cry and scream after [the rape] was over,” he said. “I will never forget how this one girl clawed at her own face and neck with her finger nails afterwards. She had deep scratches all over her.” “
…Ahmadinejad’s Spiritual Advisor says, “Raping Prisoners Is OK But Wash Your Hands First“.  Fuck Noam Chomsky

<sarcasm>….but now wait a second I’m still angry we water boarded terrorists</sarcasm>


Egyptian General: Yes, We Did Virginity Tests, No Rape

May 31, 2011
Media_httpfarm4static_qmeba
that makes no sense to me. nothing worse then stupid…

A senior Egyptian general admits that “virginity checks” were performed on women arrested at a demonstration this spring, the first such admission after previous denials by military authorities. …The general said the virginity checks were done so that the women wouldn’t later claim they had been raped by Egyptian authorities.

We didn’t want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren’t virgins in the first place,” the general said. “None of them were (virgins). CNN via challahhuakbar.blogspot.com and image via txphotoblog


Osama bin Laden Disappointed by Quality of Virgins

May 4, 2011
“I demanded my virgins,
like any good martyr,
but what they brought me is entirely unacceptable.”

.Osama bin Laden Reflects
On Himself From The GRAVE

ALLAH DAMN IT!…Each time we sleep with a Houri we find her virgin. Besides, the penis of the Elected never softens. The erection is eternal; the sensation that you feel each time you make love is utterly delicious and out of this world and were you to experience it in this world you would faint. Each chosen one [i.e. Muslim] will marry seventy [sic] houris, besides the women he married on earth, and all will have appetizing vaginas.
Al-Itqan fi Ulum al-Qur’an, p. 351

Egyptian army forces women protesters to take "virginity tests"

March 26, 2011

Fatwas and Flogging on Fake hymens in Egypt?

Media_httpyourjewishn_ppkcqFrom Amnesty International: Ain’t Arab democracy wonderful? Amnesty International has today called on the Egyptian authorities to investigate serious allegations of torture, including forced ‘virginity tests’, inflicted by the army on women protesters arrested in Tahrir Square earlier this month. After army officers violently cleared the square of protesters on 9 March, at least 18 women were held in military detention. Amnesty International has been told by women protesters that they were beaten, given electric shocks, subjected to strip searches while being photographed by male soldiers, then forced to submit to ‘virginity checks’ and threatened with prostitution charges.
‘Virginity tests’ are a form of torture when they are forced or coerced.
“Forcing women to have ‘virginity tests’ is utterly unacceptable. Its purpose is to degrade women because they are women,” said Amnesty International. “All members of the medical profession must refuse to take part in such so-called ‘tests’.”

20-year-old Salwa Hosseini told Amnesty International that after she was arrested and taken to a military prison in Heikstep, she was made, with the other women, to take off all her clothes to be searched by a female prison guard, in a room with two open doors and a window. During the strip search, Salwa Hosseini said male soldiers were looking into the room and taking pictures of the naked women.
The women were then subjected to ‘virginity tests’ in a different room by a man in a white coat. They were threatened that “those not found to be virgins” would be charged with prostitution.
According to information received by Amnesty International, one woman who said she was a virgin but whose test supposedly proved otherwise was beaten and given electric shocks.

Fatwas and Flogging on Fake hymens in Egypt?

November 7, 2010

According to Elaph.com, a capsule is being sold in Arab communities in the Middle East – including in Israel – that is inserted vaginally before the wedding night. It then explodes, giving off a red dye that resembles blood, thus potentially saving the woman’s life, as well as her reputation.

…but why not get the surgery?   Real blood is better.  right?

DUBAI (Al Arabiya)

From new noses to luscious lips modern technology means anything can be bought, and now a Chinese-made “hymen” aims to give women back their virginity, which MPs in Egypt have slammed as a deceitful tool that promotes vice and corruption. The hymen, called the Virginity Hymen, consists of a tiny pouch that is inserted inside a womans vagina and contains a red substance, simulating blood, which leaks when the pouch is broken during sexual intercourse. The devise, which costs $15, has kicked off mass debates amongst Egypts MPs and religious scholars about ways to stop it from being imported to Egypt as they fear it may encourage promiscuous behavior. A fatwa sanctioning the harshest of punishments on those who import the hymen was issued by Dr. Abdel-Moati Bayoumi, a member of the Center for Islamic Research (CIR), which has been slammed as unnecessary. People who bring the artificial hymen into the country should be severely penalized, Bayoumi, who is also a former Deputy Chairman of the Religious Affairs Committee in parliament, stated in his fatwa. They spread vice and encourage girls to engage in illicit relationships as they know they can restore their virginity, he warned. Egyptian imam, Sheikh Youssef al-Badri, agreed with Bayoumi and argued that people who import the hymen should be made an example of to others so they dont think of getting involved in the same business. A person dealing with artificial hymens should be flogged, put in jail, or deported from the country so that no one else could think of following suit, he said. Meanwhile another CIR member, Sheikh Mahmoud Ashour, slammed Bayoumis fatwa as “ijtihad,” an independent interpretation of Islamic law in order to evaluate a contemporary issue. Instead of imposing penalties on importers of artificial hymens, we should declare it is religiously illicit to import it, sell it or distribute it, Ashour, who is also the former al-Azhar deputy chairman, told the London-based Asharq al-Awsat. We should also impose hefty fines on those import it, he added. Dr. Mustafa al-Shakaa, also a CIR member, said it was enough to apply the commercial fraud law on this new product. The artificial hymen involves deceit on the part of women, he told the paper. Thus importing it is fraudulent. Shakaa added that any decision concerning the artificial hymen should be preceded by meetings between Islamic scholars so they can reach a consensus on ways to deal with what he called a violation of Muslim honor. Despite the fuss about the product, there is still no proof it has reached the Egyptian market but rumor has it that it is already being used by some doctors in private clinics. Islam forbids fornication, or sex outside of marriage. In some traditional societies a woman’s virginity is linked with family honor and is, in fact, the main cause of the majority of honor killings
