A herd of Muslim women 9

Raymond Ibrahim comments:

This picture, taken at a recent protest in Egypt, has been making the rounds on various Arabic websites. Note the rope around the women, herding them like camels; note the man to the right holding the leash, walking them.

I am told this is a common “precautionary measure” to keep women from mixing with men during protests.

Considering that certain Islamic texts describe females as “she-camels in heat,” or that it is traditional for some men to divorce their wives by saying “you are given free rein and unloosed like that camel” … this measure must surely seem natural.

At any rate, to those who think that history must always progress, take note: fifty years ago, the overwhelming majority of women in Egypt wore modern clothes, hair uncovered, and would never have condescended to being walked on a leash.

Such is “progress”—”Arab Spring” style.

    Move ’em on, head ’em up,
    Head ’em up, move ’em out,
    Move ’em on, head ’em out Rawhide!
    Set ’em out, ride ’em in
    Ride ’em in, let ’em out,
    Cut ’em out, ride ’em in Rawhide.

    My ex Kuwaiti girlfriend would never have herself humiliated like that. When she was in high school in Kuwait City, she wore mini skirts just to raise the ire of the administrators. There are liberated people in the “Muslim world.” She would not hurt a flea.

      Bill, I hope she’s not on the radar when the religious police are patrolling in the new, “liberated”, “Springtime for Hitler” society.

    Could they be protesting the subjugation of women by Islam???? Just a hopeful guess.

    Coming Soon!To American cities and towns near you.
    This is just one of the fruits of Islam and sharia.
    This is indeed the true face of Islam – Slavery and oppression.

    Jillian, do you think you could get a bigger version of that image by any chance? I want to translate their posters.

    I don’t know what they are protesting, but I’m sure its not the fact that they’re being treated like cattle.  Such good little obedient slaves!! Interesting point that 50 years ago they wouldn’t have stood for it.  Mind-boggling.  This would be a great case study for a psychologist – how 50 years of mental abuse results in total abdication of the rational faculties.
