Whipped for wearing a 'deceptive' bra: Hardline Islamists in Somalia publicly flog women
Daily Mail UK ^ | 16 October 2009

Posted on 10/17/2009 1:25:37 PM PDT by Lorianne

A hardline Islamist group in Somalia has begun publicly whipping women for wearing bras that they claim violate Islam as they are 'deceptive'.

The insurgent group Al Shabaab has sent gunmen into the streets of Mogadishu to round up any women who appear to have a firm bust, residents claimed yesterday.

The women are then inspected to see if the firmness is natural, or if it is the result of wearing a bra. If they are found wearing , they are ordered to remove it and shake their breasts, residents said.

Al Shabaab, which seeks to impose a strict interpretation of Sharia law over all Somalia, also amputated a foot and a hand each from two young men accused of robbery earlier this month.

They have also banned movies, musical ringtones, dancing at wedding ceremonies and playing or watching soccer. 'Al Shabaab forced us to wear their type of full veil and now they order us to shake our breasts,' a resident, Halima, told Reuters, adding that her daughters had been whipped on Thursday. 'They are now saying that breasts should be firm naturally, or just flat.' Officials of Al Shabaab, which Washington says is Al Qaeda's proxy in the failed Horn of Africa state, declined to comment.

The group's hardline interpretation of Islamic law has shocked many Somalis, who are traditionally moderate Muslims. Some residents, however, give the insurgents credit for restoring order to the regions under their control.

How these savages treat their women, which god they worship, and even what they eat for breakfast is no concern of ours.

Not only is radical Islam inherently violent and destructive, it’s a sham.

Only in so far as they plan to kill us, enslave our women,
make them all get a bikini wax and wipe with their hands,
brush their teeth with twigs, and cook halal meals, on time.

Well, I’m concerned. This will be the future for American women.

If America is not a Christian nation, it will be part of the Islamic nation.

The psychoanalyst in me is very sure that these men’s newfound interest in bra inspections and mandatory breast-shaking is not actually motivated by religious convictions.

Not really. The Islamists and their dirty minds just want to get a very close look at breasts. What is better than having the women show them off and shake them under the pretext of making sure they are following some medieval law?

Quite a con they have going there.

I’ve been wondering why I haven’t seen you on here, but now I suspect you have run off and joined the Tali Ban.

Just kidding. But these Tali Ban, inspecting these, then making them shake them, ain’t fooling me one bit.

Now seriously, I think as a covert operation we should arm these women and send them in to take out the Taliban.

They probably feel shame for it...and at the end of long day of checking breast firmness, they go back to the barracks and rape some boy to transfer their shame.

Except for the fact that they are working on conquering us from inside and out so they can treat women here that way, force us to worship their god and (worst of all) outlaw the "miracle animal" from our breakfast plates, dinner plates, grills and barbeque smokers.

< /slight sarcasm on the "worst of all">

Miracle animal:

Forcing people to submit to their rule is enough for me.
Communists tried to kill me in Nam, now these islamists
KILLED Americans in our own country, that’s enough by itself.

Ya know, I’ve come to the conclusion that
“Live free or die” doesn’t mean freedom or death,
it means leave us alone or YOU will die.
I will not go gently into that Islamist night...
