Somali Islamists publicly whip women for wearing bras

MOGADISHU, Oct 16 (Reuters) – Somalia’s hardline Islamist group al Shabaab has publicly whipped women for wearing bras they say violate Islam by constituting a deception, north Mogadishu residents said on Friday.

The insurgent group, which seeks to impose a strict form of sharia Islamic law throughout Somalia, amputated a foot and a hand each from two young men accused of robbery earlier this month. They have also banned movies, musical ringtones, dancing at wedding ceremonies and playing or watching soccer.

Residents said gunmen had been rounding up any woman seen with a firm bust and then had them publicly whipped by masked men. The women were then told to remove their bras and shake their breasts.

"Al shabaab forced us to wear their type of veil and now they order us to shake our breasts," a resident, Halima, told Reuters, adding that her daughters had been whipped on Thursday.

"They first banned the former veil and introduced a hard fabric which stands stiffly on women’s chests. They are now saying that breasts should be firm naturally, or just flat."

Officials of Al Shabaab, which Washington says is al Qaeda’s proxy in the failed Horn of Africa state, declined to comment

Abdullahi Hussein, a student in north Mogadishu, said his elder brother was thrown behind bars when he fought back a man who humiliated their sister by asking her to remove her bra.

"My brother was jailed after he wrestled with a man that had beaten my sister and forced her to remove her bra. He could not stand it," Hussein said.

Men were not spared the’ moral cleansing’. Any man caught without a beard was been publicly whipped.

"I was beaten and my hair was cut off with a pair of scissors in the street," Hussein said.

"My trouser was also cut up to the knee. They accused me of shaving my beard but I am only 18. They have arrested dozens of men and women. You just find yourself being whipped by a masked man as soon as leave your house."

More of the joys of Sharia law.

    Somalia and Sharia Law on line one.

    If you had to pick just one thing (of millions) to illustrate the overwhelming stupidity of the Left, the acceptance of the treatment of women by Muslims is it.

    Multiculturalism as practiced by liberals is evidence of mental illness.

    Gee, it almost sounds like some misogynists made up a puritanical belief to treat women like pieces of meat and cull them like animals from a herd. Those guards are sure fixated on promoting public decency – right up there with pedophilia, snuff films, and the guards in Iran who “temporarily marry” female prisoners the night before execution.

    Oh, the blessings of immutable Islamic law. Allah made it perfect in the 7th century, so who are we to question it in the 21st? There is no flaw, everything is said and done, so case closed and no moral conscience should question or change it.

    For a futurist look at a misogynist cult gone to its logical conclusion, read Laura Reeves sci-fi military thriller series – VIGILANTE, PEACEKEEPER and soon to be released EXPLORER through the ROC sci-fi imprint.

    Women, in this sci-fi series, are considered by the progeny of Islamist radicals, to be demons, inferior and cattle. Women who deliver female children as first-born are tortured into idiocy as a warning to other women not to make the mistake of producing other than males as first born. After child-bearing years have used them up, the women are unceremoniously slaughtered for sport and to satisfy the smoldering hate/fear this cult has of women in general.

    Besides being science fiction of equal to Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, Reeve’s future time line builds on present day difficulties based on her considerable experience as an Air Force officer deeply involved in SALT II compliance operations. Her view of the Islamist world is crisp, on target and frightening.

    As is this group of insane peckerwoods.

    Elimination of their entire gene pool is in order.

    I think someone should call the National Organization of Women right now. I know that they will be very interested and want to make sure that action is taken. After all they are the number one defender of women’s right aren’t they?

    This is what happened in Afganistan the moment Obama became president. Everything regressed, girls not going to school, no more music, no soccer, etc. Guess Laura Bush’s hard work down the drain.

    In Indonesia muslim women like Obama’s mother wore veils. It’s not a law women have to wear one, it’s just to show your a muslim extremist.
