There have been some wild and wacky fatwas (religious edicts) issued by various Islamic clerics throughout the years, but the latest may prove to be cat-astrophic. As reported by IraqiNews.com (of Manama, Bahrain) and Metro.com news (of London, United Kingdom), breeding cats is now strictly verboten within the Islamic Caliphate.

National mottoes and slogans have long stirred the patriotic fervor deep within the souls of any given nation’s true sons and daughters. Well, usually. Continue reading India; Islamic fatwa issued against patriotic slogan
In spite of more than a few photos and videos making their way to the West depicting Islamic jihadis executing homosexuals by throwing them off 10 story buildings, reports are bubbling to the surface that European Muslim homosexuals are joining up with the ISIS terrorist network. As reported by The Daily Express of London, Great Britain on May 12, 2015, more than a few closeted gay European Muslims are already in the ISIS-controlled territory in Syria and Iraq in order to fulfill their Islamic duty of simultaneously driving out infidels and purifying their belief system.
While more than a few Western cultural trendsetters revel in painting a Catholic woman sporting a Mantilla-style chapel veil, or a Protestant wearing their proverbial Sunday best, or a Jew wearing a yarmulke as some sorts of Dark Ages throwbacks, the same vanguard of Western progressivism gives scant attention when overt discrimination and oppression of women emanates from an Islamic dominated government. Case in point: The Saudi Arabian Airlines, operating under the name Saudia, will bow to pressure from influential Islamic fundamentalists and will now officially forbid women from sitting next to men who aren’t either their husbands or mahrem (Arabic for “male guardian”).
On the heels of an Egyptian Brotherhood supported fatwa reported by India Today Nov. 28, 2013 that ruled that Muslim women swimming in the ocean equates to adultery and deserve to be punished accordingly, the latest Salafist decree has just hit the streets of Cairo. As reported by the right-of-center news portal Front Page Magazine on Aug. 19, 2014, an Egyptian cleric has ruled that it’s allowable for faithful Muslim men to become the proverbial Peeping Tariq, just as long as the wafa’-challenged watcher intends to wed the object of his hidden voyeurism.
Hard-core cleric Usama al-Qawsi of the Salafist uber-puritanical branch of Islam handed down a fatwa (Islamic theological decree) ruling that a devout Muslim man can legitimately peek in on any given Muslim woman in her most intimate and private moments without her knowledge nor permission. Only two caveats were cited: The peeper must promise marry the woman whose privacy was violated, and that the offending ogler must be “pure” in his heart while sneaking a peek.
Arguably creepier than the “swimming is adultery” fatwa, the Muslim Brotherhood-friendly Imam al-Qawsi’s edict states in part, “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.”
Not done yet, al-Qawsi citing actual precedents within Islam:
Book 11, Number 2077: Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:
The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: When one of you asked a woman in marriage, if he is able to look at what will induce him to marry her, he should do so. He (Jabir) said: I asked a girl in marriage, I used to look at her secretly, until I looked at what induced me to marry her. I, therefore, married her.
Since last summer’s ousting of the Barack Obama-allied Muslim Brotherhood government, the North African nation has moved away from Islamic extremism seemingly as fast as it can. The nation’s Minister of Religious Endowments Mohammad Mukhtar quickly rejected the ruling:
Would you allow this to happen to your daughter? If it was okay with you then it isn’t with the conservative, civilized Muslim and Christian societies — they disapprove of it.
Possibly one of the more bizarre in the long list of fatwas issued by the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood was the 2013 “swimming is adultery” fatwa. Much like the European Romance languages, certain words are inherently masculine, some feminine. The Arabic word for “sea” is masculine, therefore, if and when sea water comes into contact with a married woman’s pelvic area, she literally and figuratively has just committed adultery.
According to the fatwa, the offending beach-goer is effectively an adulteress and should be punished accordingly. The standard Sharia Law punishment for adultery for a woman is either by slowly stoning her to death or by hanging. The new Egyptian government has actively and aggressively spoken against many, if not all, of the former government’s issuance of fatwas.
While on his whirlwind tour of the Far East, Barack Obama managed to find time to hammer the embattled owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, yet the Chief Executive has remained curiously silent when informed that his Malaysian hosts have every intention of implementing the harshest punishments found in Islamic Shari’a law on the nation’s rather sizable non-Muslim minority. As reported by both The Malaysia Chronicle and The Malay Mail Online, both on April 28, 2014, as well as USA Today on April 27, 2014, Obama referred to Clippers owner Donald Sterling as both “ignorant” as well as “incredibly offensive” while the billionaire Democrat was secretly recorded berating his 49-years-his-junior now ex-mistress, known to the world only as V. Stiviano, for her friendship with blacks as well as posting online photos of her with NBA legend Ervin “Magic” Johnson.
For any Muslims considering joining any given Muslim nation’s space program, they should know that the trip to the Red Planet could also mean a trip to eternal damnation, as reported by the internet news portal Arutz Sheva (Israel National News) on Feb. 20, 2014.
Arguably one of the most oppressive regimes on the planet, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) religious clerics council has ruled no woman may seek or receive medical attention from male medical or health professionals unless a “male guardian” is present, as reported by the English-language newspaper the Arab News (of Jeddah, KSA) on Feb.14, 2014.
Michael Palin of the British comedy troupe Monty Python is warning that any parodying of Islam could be harmful to your health, as reported by The Daily Mail (of London, UK) on Dec. 29, 2013.
Noting a rise in sensitivities, the comedian stated:
Religion is more difficult to talk about. I don’t think we could do Life of Brian any more. A parody of Islam would be even harder.
Sissy McSuckerson inducted…
Salon.com once ran in a satirical article that the decidedly right-of-center Pope Benedict XVI once joked with the Chief Rabbis of Israel that ’70’s soft-pop balladeer Cat Stevens was in actuality the “Ayatollah of Wimp Rock.”
Regardless if the German Shepherd appreciates the estrogen-infused soothing strains of the individual born Steven Demetre Georgiou, the man who became famous as Cat Stevens was just selected for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, as reported by the Persian Gulf news portal Al Arabiya News on Dec. 17, 2013.
“Standard Sharia Law punishment for adultery for a woman is slowly stoning her to death…”
India Today published on Nov. 28, 2013 that a listing has recently been compiled in Egypt of some of the more puritanical Islamic Fatwa’s issued during the presidency of now deposed leader Mohamed Morsi.
During Morsi’s brief stint as president, the Muslim Brotherhood and the equally violently straight laced Salafists issued blatantly anti-women fatwas on a regular basis.
Arguably leading the list was the Fatwa (Islamic religious ruling) issued that noted the Arab word for “sea” is masculine, therefore, if and when sea water comes into contact with a married woman’s pelvic area, she literally committed adultery.
