Soccer is truly the beautiful game, unless you are a French Muslim woman who wears a hijab... According to a decree by the French Football Federation (FFF), anyone playing, coaching or officiating on a French football pitch is banned from wearing religious symbols. Sheema Khan, Globe and Mail, Dec 5, 2022

A little history about the hijab might be in order. It was never intended to be a religious symbol. The hijab, as we know it, has its origin in Medina during the time of Muhammad when women had to answer the call of nature next to men in a public space; an open-air latrine, so to speak, where the sexes were separated by a low wall. God's spokesman mandated the head covering so that tall women, like his wife Sawda, could do their business without being interrupted by catcalls because the wall was not high enough to obscure their identity when squatting. That it is has morphed into a symbol of modesty and piety when women are no longer having to answer the call of nature in nature is even more extraordinary considering that during the Assyrian empire when, I believe, the head covering veil was first made mandatory, it was for prostitutes only so that they could be easily identified.

All about the veil.

Indonesia set to punish sex before marriage with jail time [up to a year] The law, if passed, would apply to Indonesian citizens and foreigners alike. Punishment for adultery can only take effect if there are parties who lodge complaints to the authorities. BBC Dec 3, 2022.

Like His revelations about alcoholic beverages, God's revealed truths (immutable facts revealed to a mortal by a god) about illegal intercourse changed over time. In His first revelation on the subject He decrees that the adulteress should be confined to her home until He “opens another way,” Revelation 4:15. After obviously giving it some more thought, God’s other way is for both men and women who commit illegal intercourse to be publically whipped “a hundred lashes," Revelation 24:2. And still latter, in what is referred to as the Lost Verse since it does not appear in the Koran, God seems to have reconsidered both His earlier pronouncements and now only stoning will do.

Shocked Iranian Medics leak stories of protestors raped in detention. CNN Nov 21, 20222

When some of Muhammad's holy warriors showed a reluctance to rape captive married women, they were scowled by the God for whom they were fighting. Sexually assaulting females captives was, and is what holy warriors do as a matter of course. That Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, modern-day holy warriors as are ISIS fighters, should do the same should not come as a surprise. It is what is expected of them by both God and those who rule in His name, e. g., Ayatollah Khamenei.

No alcoholic beer sales in World Cup stadiums: FIFA Reuters, Nov 18, 2022

If you cannot enjoy a cold beer while watching soccer in person in Qatar blame Umar, a reformed alcoholic and close friend and collaborator of Muhammad. It was Umar, a future caliph, who insisted the Prophet get God to change His mind and outlaw all alcoholic beverages after God revealed that He didn't much care what you drank as long as you did not attend prayers while inebriated.

Also, if Qatar had wanted to respect everyone's beliefs, which is a condition for hosting the World Cup, they could have done what Kuwait did, and may still do, and that is issue what my friend Abbas (a.k.a. Sohrab) referred to as a Christian card to non-Muslim visitors and temporary residents allowing them to buy booze at their discretion.

Somalia Mogadishu bombings: Twin blasts kill 100 in capital BBC Oct 30, 2022

Sex in Paradise is a semenless experience. This alone should be a deal-breaker for most young men contemplating mass murder through self-immolation to get first crack at Allah's manufactured female facsimiles. And, there is only so many things you are allowed to do with these predictable, soulless automatons programmed by a celibate, old-fashioned god for whom good sex is assembly line, secretionless vaginal intercourse with former grateful wives and physically uniformed artificial spouses with regenerative hymens.

If via Love, Sex and Islam I am able to convince believers contemplating martyrdom not to be in such a hurry to get at those houris only to be disappointed, then the more than twenty years I have dedicated to the study of the world's fastest growing religion will not have been in vain.

Head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards warns protesters: ‘Today is last day of riots’... The widely feared Revolutionary Guards report directly to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Reuters, Oct 29, 2022

Like Khomeini before him, Khamenei will do what needs to be done, and if that means mass murder so be it. He will quote God who said He preferred slaughter to sedition, Revelation 2:191: "Sedition is worse than slaughter" as he did during a previous uprising where more than a thousand, mostly young people were killed.

Most of those murdered will again be young people killed on orders from old men in spite of Judgement Day not being imminent. Unless it is or, as is more likely, the Ayatollahs would interpret the following as further justification to deal harshly with the protestors.

Narrated Ali:

I heard the Prophet saying, "In the last days (of the world) there will appear young people with foolish thoughts and ideas. They will give good talks, but they will go out of Islam as an arrow goes out of its game, their faith will not exceed their throats. So, wherever you find them, kill them, for there will be a reward for their killers on the Day of Resurrection."

Two Canadian women return from Islamic State detention camp in Syria, one faces terrorism charges... More than 20 detained women and children, plus a handful of men, have filed a case in Federal Court, set to be heard in early December, challenging the government’s refusal to bring them home. Globe and Mail, Oct 27, 2022

If the French experience is any guide, we should bring them all back at little or no risk to the general population. The horrific violence experienced by many returning French jihadists has done what deradicalization programs, which author David Thomson calls "a joke", could not do: transform holy warriors into pacifists.

You could easily test those you fear have not been changed by the experience.

A New Jersey teacher accused of removing a student’s hijab sues Olympic fencer and others. AA New Jersey elementary school teacher is suing Olympic medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad for viral social media posts made last year accusing her of forcibly removing a student’s hijab, a headscarf worn by some Muslim women and girls.

The suit also accuses the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the country’s largest Muslim civil rights group of amplifying the matter through multiple calls for Herman’s termination, which were never retracted or withdrawn, and says the group was “motivated by a combination of greed and a fierce desire to burnish their brands as fighters against Islamophobia.”

CNN Oct 24, 2022

And what did the teacher do to warrant CAIR’s vociferous intervention on the side of the fencer and her hearsay accusation?

She thought the [second grade] student’s hijab was a hood over her normally close-fitting hijab and only gently brushed it back from covering the student’s eyes. Once she realized the garment was a hijab, her lawsuit states she quickly apologized and “restored the hood to its original position immediately.”

Lesson for today:

Be careful about mistaking a hoody for a hijab; it could land you into a heap of trouble with activists who will accuse you of being an Islamophobe in the pursuit of an agenda that leaves no room for fairness or common sense.

Islamophobia: an accusation for any occasion.

Ukraine war: US says Iranian drones breach sanctions... Iran denies supplying them to Russia BBC Oct 18, 2022

The Koran recommends lying if it will advance Allah’s Cause: a world ruled by the Sharia (God’s Law as revealed in the Koran and elaborated upon in the sayings and actions of Muhammad). The example God gives is of a man who should not join an impending battle, and, depending on the outcome, he is told what to say. I fail to see how Iran lying about providing the Russian oppressor with drones benefits God’s Cause in any way.

Russia hits Ukrainian capital with waves of explosive Iranian drones The Associated Press, Oct 17, 2022

Considering God and His spokesman’s low opinion of females, Khamenei will not be held to account for the deliberate murder of young women and girls during the protests. However, he will still burn in Hell. "Helping the oppressors" is the 30th of the fifty grave sins; sins where the sinner is guaranteed to spend eternity on fire.

My friend Abbas, aka Sohrab, was detained when Ayatollah Ebrahim Raisi was in charge of putting down unrest under Khomeini.

He remembers it as one of the the worst nights of his life.

Canada bans top Iranian revolutionary guard members in new sanctions Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland announced a new round of sanctions on Iran, banning the top 50 per cent of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps members from entering Canada. CBC Oct 11, 2022

In Canada, except for the Province of Québec, the hijab is welcomed everywhere, even in places you least expect, as is the niqab which Québec has partially banned and the Federal Government wholeheartedly endorsed in spite of opposition from Muslims who argued that new citizens taking the oath of citizenship incognito was a niqab too far. Trudeau, in particular, is a big fan, as is the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). Demonstrators had to take to the street before his government would announce limited sanctions against those responsible for Amini's murder.

Sex workers challenging criminal laws in court, citing Charter violation But advocacy groups maintain the laws that were later put in place by the Harper government have failed to make things better for sex workers. Globe and Mail, Oct 3, 2022

After showing up at the front desk and paid for the service requested and the girl (or girls) who will be providing the service (or services) you are given the key to a locker where you are told to put your clothes while you shower, and then return to the front desk afterwards in your skivvies only.

After being given the once over to ensure no weapons and no visible signs that would indicate a health problem you are buzzed into the section where the girl (or girls) you have selected will be waiting, along with a sort of master of ceremony with a few last-minute instructions about treating your service worker the way she wants to be treated. Both clients and service providers, I am told, are happy with the arrangement, especially the cleanliness part.

My first time with a working girl was with a young Muslim woman from West Africa who came to Canada to escape a marriage in the Islamic tradition, that she once described as “God-sanctioned rage.” Remembering Uzza is dedicated to that young woman I met one snowy night almost twenty year ago who inspired me to go on a voyage of discovery of a religion like no other.

Getting to Know Allah available on Amazon. Boreal Books, Sep 19, 2022

111:1-5 Perish the hands of Abu Lahab, and may he perish too; neither his wealth nor what he has earned will avail him anything. He will roast in a flaming fire, and his wife will be a carrier of fire-wood, she shall have a rope of fibre around her neck.

The phrase, "In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful" launches 112 of the 114 chapters of the Koran.

If "compassionate" is defined as being aware of the suffering of another and wishing to relieve it, and "merciful" as being unconditionally kind and forgiving, then these are not the qualities we would associate with the Author of verses about roasting a man over an open fire, with his wife, tethered like an animal, supplying the firewood fueling the flame that is burning her husband.

Does it matter that Abu Lahab did not hide his disdain for Muhammad and his new religion? It matters to Allah, and what matters to Allah is what Getting to Know Allah is all about.

Two Iranians sentenced to death, including LGBTQ activist... for “corruption on earth.” CNN Sept 7, 2022

Like journalist Rouhollah Zam, both will be hanged.

Dissident Iranian journalist Rouhollah Zam was hanged in Iran on Saturday morning, according to state television IRIB.

Zam was found guilty of "corruption on earth," a charge that does not specify a crime but is sometimes used by the Iranian government for alleged attempts to overthrow it.

Zam ran the online opposition news site Amad News.

CNN, December 12, 2020

God suggests both a harsher and a lesser punishment for those found guilty of “corruption on earth,” i.e., "corrupting the land."

5:33 Indeed, the punishment of those who fight Allah and His Messenger and go around corrupting the land is to be killed, crucified, have their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or to be banished from the land. That is a disgrace for them in this life, and in the life to come theirs will be a terrible punishment

Anyone who challenges those who rule in Allah's name such as the Ayatollahs, or who would try to make things better, so-called Reformers, are guilty of "corrupting the land."

I don’t necessarily agree.

It is not madrassas that are the problem (Erdogan’s education notwithstanding), but the book that is at the core of a madrassa’s curriculum. It is a book that should not be taught to children until they are old enough to think for themselves.

Acadie Nouvelle cartoon sparks backlash over depiction of Muslims CBC August 23, 2022

In response to a news story about the Taliban’s treatment of women, l’Acadie Nouvelle, New Brunswick's largest French-language newspaperman published two cartoons, one showing a caveman dragging a woman by the hair and below it, a man wearing a turban and carrying a gun using a leash to drag a woman wearing a burqa. The implication that the Taliban is behaving like stone age barbarians in the way it treats women could not be any clearer. Yet, rather than amplify the unambiguous intent of l’Acadie Nouvelle and take the Taliban to task for its treatment of women, activists are accusing the paper of promoting Islamophobia. This is nuts and has to stop!

Islamic veil: Why fewer women in North Africa are wearing it Young Moroccan women have spoken to local media about the social pressure, even harassment, they have to endure when they take off the hijab. But that has apparently not deterred them... Merely criticising the hijab in Western democracies has also become almost synonymous with "Islamophobia" or attacks on minority rights. But in Muslim-majority societies it [criticising the hijab] is still regarded as part of a legitimate campaign for the liberation of women from stifling tradition. BBC, July 19, 2022

India state on alert after Prophet Muhammad row beheading. The victim, a tailor named Kanhaiya Lal, was killed in Udaipur district on Tuesday by two Muslim men, who filmed the act and posted it online. They claimed the act was in retaliation for the victim's support for controversial remarks made by a politician on the Prophet Muhammad. BBC June 29, 2022

Why the tailor had to to die:

The controversy began with comments made by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokeswoman Nupur Sharma on the TV station Times Now on May 27. Sharma was commenting on the Gyanvapi mosque controversy. The mosque in northeast India was built on the site of an earlier Hindu shrine. Some Islamists have reportedly claimed that there actually was no shrine at the site.

During the TV segment, Sharma rhetorically asked if she should "mock" some parts of the Muslim holy book, the Quran. She specifically mentioned "flying horses," a likely reference to the buraq creature. She also brought up the Prophet Muhammad's marriage to Aisha, describing her as 9 years old at the time the marriage was consummated, according to local media.

After Sharma’s comments, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s spokesman for the Delhi region Naveen Kumar Jindal accused Muhammad of rape in a tweet.

Al-Monitor, Explainer: India BJP Party spokesperson's comments on prophet spark backlash, June 6, 2022

Al-Burak is the winged horse that Muhammad rode to Paradise for a meeting with God during which the five daily prayers were negotiated. This is an article of faith. It should not have caused offence. The same for Aisha’s marriage; details of which Islam would like to keep under wraps, which the Western media has been more than happy to oblige, refusing to report on what was said and whether it was factual.

What Aisha and others had to say about the blessed event!

What about the rape accusation? In Love, Sex and Islam I speculate as to how it all went down in reminiscing about Jasmine. You be the judge.

Sharma also "specifically mentioned" that, in the Koran, the Earth is flat. The less said about that the better.

Supreme Court further erodes separation between church and state in case of praying football coach… The court said coach Joe Kennedy’s prayers amounted to private speech, protected by the First Amendment, and could not be restricted by the school district. The decision lowers the bar between church and state in an opinion that will allow more religious expression in public spaces. CNN June 27, 2022

Islam is the big winner from this Supreme Court decision which further blurs the line between Church and State. Islam is all about the public demonstration of your faith, starting with the five daily prayers (Sunni) that must be performed at a specific time no matter where you are being the most conspicuous. It all begins with the call to prayer which this decision will make impossible to deny. Islam, with its unabashed, in your space (not a typo), proselytizing will have the Christian’s lunch, and the law will be on their side.

Mark Lilla, professor of the humanities at Columbia University is wrong; it is not Muslims who will be responsible for the demise of the fragile exception, but Christians.

Abortion bans trample on the religious freedom of Muslims, too. There is not just one sharia rule on abortion. There are many. As Islamic law expert Abed Awad and Imam Omar Suleiman have pointed out, different Islamic schools of thought have different rules on whether and when one can have an abortion. Among them are: abortion is permissible through the first 120 days of pregnancy... an exception exists in every Islamic legal school (if the life or health of the mother is at risk,) regardless of the timing. Asifa Quraishi-Landes, San Francisco Chronicle June 23, 2022

The school that allows abortions "through the first 120 days of pregnancy" is the Hanafi. It has the most adherents, an estimated one third of Muslims worldwide. The Maliki, the second largest of the four mainstream schools of Islamic jurisprudence with an estimated 25% following, does not permit abortion at any stage after fertilization, except if the mother's life is at risk.

Shia Iran allows abortion "before 16 weeks of gestation under limited circumstances, including medical conditions related to fetal and maternal health." National Library of Medicine

The Koran has nothing to say about aborting a fetus. Schools of Islamic Law that allow abortion after fertilization, such as the 120 days quoted, rely on what the Prophet said about when a fetus is ensouled.

Islam is not a race but a religion. That distinction is increasingly being blurred by Islamists who see it to their advantage to label criticism of Islam as being racially motivated therefore subject to official scrutiny and prosecution. I trust the RCMP will appreciate the difference should recommendations be made that have more to do with protecting Islam from criticism than improve policing of race related offences.
