Islamic culture

Himself does some stellar work on Islamic culture:

FGM. A Glimmer Of Hope: Happily, the UK is beginning to crack down legally on this barbaric practice.

Us And Them: Muttawa Watch, The Land Of Darkness: Again, happy news, as the Saudi civil government begins an attempt to hold to account the religious police, who are charged with enforcing a strict Islamic moral code.

Another One Gets The Chop: Saudi Arabia escalates its implementation of capital punishment, executing its 102nd victim. The United States remains the sole Western Democracy which implements the death penalty.

Acid Attack On Nine Year Old Wife: Although I'm opposed to the death penalty, it's at least encouraging that the Bangladeshi courts have taken this heinous crime seriously enough to sentence its perpetrator to death.

Acid Attack Dress Code: Ah those nutty Muslims. If anyone knows of a local Muslim cleric who authoritatively and unequivocally denounces using acid attacks to enforce Islamic dress codes, please reply in the comments. I'm not holding my breath.

Jordanian Honour Killing: Six months in prison for killing his pregnant sister. That's more like the Islamic justice we've all come to know and love.

Post a Comment

Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
