    Aren't you glad you live in a free country?

    OK girls!!..aren't you glad you're not a muslim and live in the Arab world?

    Ordinance on the Women's Veil, which is reported to have been issued by a nine-member professional committee of the High Court of the Islamic State of Afghanistan and which reads as follows:

    "A denier of veil is an infidel and an unveiled woman is lewd".

    "Conditions of wearing veil:

    1. The veil must cover the whole body.
    2. Women's clothes must not be thin.
    3. Women's clothes must not be decorated and colourful.
    4. Women's clothes must not be narrow and tight to prevent the seditious limbs from being noticed. The veil must not be thin.
    5. Women must not perfume themselves. If a perfumed woman passes by a crowd of men, she is considered to be an adulteress.
    6. Women's clothes must not resemble men's clothes.

    "In addition,

    1. They must not perfume themselves.
    2. They must not wear adorning clothes.
    3. They must not wear thin clothes.
    4. They must not wear narrow and tight clothes.
    5. They must cover their entire bodies.
    6. Their clothes must not resemble men's clothes.
    7. Muslim women's clothes must not resemble non-Muslim women's clothes.
    8. Their foot ornaments must not produce sound.
    9. They must not wear sound-producing garments.
    10. They must not walk in the middle of streets.
    11. They must not go out of their houses without their husband's permission.
    12. They must not talk to strange men.
    13. If it is necessary to talk, they must talk in a low voice and without laughter.
    14. They must not look at strangers.
    15. They must not mix with strangers."

    Added note: This practice not only held true in Afghanistan but most of the Islamic countries as well and still does in much of the Arab world. A former Islamic woman from Arabia told me that TB and other lung diseases are common due to breathing stale air through the tight veil.

    I used to work with men who wore clothes like that, too!

    But they did it because they worked in a semiconductor plant handling acids and arsenic.

    Then the sad thing is Hillary stated a few years ago that women were better off when the Taliban were ruling.

    *"Free" a relative term. Not availbe in all areas, void where prohibited. Exceptions include the "The PATRIOT Act" among other laws. See store for details. Purchase of 40% of your income is required- unless you're dirt poor then we'll give you a house that you can Forclose on later to the detriment of hard-working taxpayers.

    I'm reminded of the American Dad episode "Stan of Arabia" - especially Francine's song.

    (ignore the video, it's the song that is pertinent.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5sFeMTVEjQ

    "Here's your sign!"



    Yeah, this is better: Taliban executing woman for adultry



    35 year old Zarmina, executed by the Taliban. Before she was executed she was beaten for two days with steel rods until she confessed.
