A MUST SEE VIDEO (h/t Die Zeit): It is about the siege to the Red Mosque but we can see how the females are as fanatic as men. They even tied ropes around the neck of a supposed prostitute:

Yet all this misses the fundamentally tactical element of niqab. “It’s about enforcing separation,” notes a former senior French Interior Ministry official who helped draft his country’s 2004 ban on religious headgear in public schools and government buildings. “It is best understood as an intra-Muslim show of strength, a way to intimidate their own women, a way to intimidate the infidels, a way to make themselves more visible, a way to make sure no one strays from their world vision.”
In radical Islam, the vision is advanced along two tracks: as a war for supremacy within the community, and as a war for supremacy without. It may be futile to speculate about what precisely drove the jihadis to strike at this particular moment: It could have been in reaction to the knighthood awarded to novelist Salman Rushdie; it could have been a send-off to the detested Bush poodle Tony Blair; it could have been an invitation to the cabinet of Prime Minister Gordon Brown–stuffed with opponents of the war in Iraq and Israel’s war against Hezbollah–to draw the same lesson Spaniards did from the Madrid train bombing and withdraw their forces from Iraq and Afghanistan. Whatever the case, it stemmed from a generalized hatred of a civilization that can’t quite decide what to say or think about the niqab.
By the way, ehh, Spain withdrew from Iraq but NOT from Afghanistan. Other thing is that they have asked Spain also to withdraw from Afghanistan.
Also read Fausta’s “the war against women rages on“. It contains this video: “We must know that (wife) beating is a punishment in Islamic religious law. No one should deny this because this was permitted by the Creator of Man, and when you purchase an electric appliance or a car, you get a manual a catalogue explaining how to use it. The Creator of Man has sent this book (The Koram) in order to show man which ways he must choose. We shouldn’t be ashamed before nations of the world who are still in their days of ignorance, to admit that these beatings are part of our religious law“. And then he goes ranting about how women can be classified in order to get the punishment. I think I am of the last kind… no obedience, without reasonable orders…
/joke mode on/Eeh, well, I am going to begin a new religion, in which we will adore the insects and the Insect God has told be to beat up every Islamic cleric which rants this way… Yes, that is what use I find to these moonbats /joke mode off/
Of course, a woman is an electric appliance or a car. You idiots… A WOMAN IS A PERSON!!
Anyway, they don’t seem to get this idea. So Malaysian policemen have arrested singer Siti Noor Idayu Abd Moin, because of her revealing top.
IPOH: The Perak Religious Department (JAIP) has ordered a singer to appear before the Syariah Court for “exposing her body” during a performance and “encouraging immoral activities”.
However, an indignant Siti Noor Idayu Abd Moin, 22, said she was wearing a sleeveless top and long pants when JAIP officers raided an entertainment outlet in Sunway City where she was performing on Tuesday.
Siti Noor Idayu said an officer even told her that the money she earned working in the outlet was duit haram (illicit money) and that her parents, children and future generations would all be tainted for using such money.
More from Reuters:
“I was surprised when the officers told me this top was too revealing,” Noor Idayu said after being released from a night’s detention on a bond of 1,000 ringgit ($290).
“Sometimes I wear something similar when I go out in the day. This is sexy? I don’t think so.”
Of course it is, if you look at burqa-clad females…
