Islamic Vouyerism

Remarks by a Salafist preacher have made headlines this week in Egypt after the preacher issued a fatwa (religious edict) that a man is allowed to see the women he is thinking about marrying “while she is showering.”

Usama al-Qawsi put it this way, “If you were really honest and wanted to marry that woman, and you were able to hide and watch her in secret, see the things that she wouldn’t usually let you see before marrying her, then it is acceptable as long as your intentions are pure.”

As those of you who know me personally can attest, my intentions are pure as the driven snow, so maybe Islam will work for me? 

Then again, since the women in Egypt have almost all been mutilated in their youth (as a matter of Islamic practice) so as to be unable to enjoy sexual pleasure, what's the point?

    1. In Egypt it's different. The mothers and aunts perform clitorectomies on their daughters/nieces. They were mutilated and in turn mutilate. Very sick culture.

    2. When I was in Egypt I didn't like it. Glad I didn't have to stay very long.

    3. It's a Muslim paradise. A land of milk and honey. I'm surprised that you didn't take note of that.

    4. I was there right before the SIX DAY WAR, just before the Canal was closed. They said "We're going to push the Jews into the sea." We said, "Bring your lunch." We were right again.

    5. Lunch was served and the Egyptians ate it.

  2. Gimme some of them good, old-fashioned, pure intensions!

    On a serious note, Islam has got to be the opiate of the masses that Marx warned against.

    1. I'm not sure what Islam is because Muslims can't agree on it either. There is the Obama brand of Islam, American Nation of Islam, Sunni sects, Shia sects and others that are subsets of all the above.

      It seems to be a very destructive faith that prides itself on destroying the human spirit.

    2. I just realized how poorly I spelled that last post. Bleh.

      I can't take any religion seriously that stands mute at the atrocities of ISIL. That also includes Obama's religion.

    3. The current US Administration is not fit to do much. It's the sort of goat rodeo where a monkey f-ing a football would be considered leader of the free world. But I digress.

      ISIL are still 'brother Muslims' and are no where near the standing of "The Great Satan" in the eyes of Islam.

  3. They are 'stretching it' just a bit there... No real surprise, since they consider women property...

    1. Apparently Mohammad used to watch women bathe before he married them so there is a faith-based precedent.

      Yes, of course, women are chattel, and you can beat them as often as you like (according to the religion of peace) so long as you don't use a rod bigger around than your thumb and you don't hit them in the face. Apparently you can also watch them shower if your heart is pure.

  5. What about the women? Do they get to see HIM showering? As it happens....I have a toy for this :)

    1. I don't think that women in Islamic nations are allowed to (a) pick a mate of their own choosing, or (b) own a GoPro. When you're chattel, either option would seem to be too... un faithful, in the classic sense.

      I suspect that setting up your GoPro to watch a guy shower, showing of his biceps and all...would end up getting your stoned, beheaded, or exiled.

  6. I'd have definitely been stoned and beheaded if I was born there.

    1. You're too cheeky to be a proper Muslim woman.
