Islamic police smash 80,000 beer bottles in Nigeria

KANO, Nigeria (AFP) – Islamic police smashed 80,000 bottles of beer in the Nigerian city of Kano on Tuesday to enforce a sharia law ban on consumption of alcohol that exists in much of the country's north.

Over a dozen veiled female sharia police, called Hisbah, destroyed the beer bottles with sticks amid shouts of "Allahu Akbar" (God is Great) on the outskirts of the northern city in a ceremony.

The ceremony was attended by government officials as part of "efforts to rid the state of immorality," said Kano state Hisbah chief Saidu Dukawa. Kano city is the capital of the state by the same name.

"The sale and consumption of alcohol, like all forms of drugs and intoxicants, is illegal in Kano state, which practices sharia law and by this event we are enforcing that ban," Dukawa told AFP.

It is getting worse by the day, and if non-Islamic countries do not end their immigration, it is just a matter of time until they takeover. As they will never stop pushing.

In Heaven there is no beer
(No beer?!)
That’s why we drink it here
And when we’re all gone from here
Our friends will be drinking all the beer.

What about the malt in beer? Beer is water, malt, hops and yeast. It’s Satanic. Ask any Muslim or God fearing Baptist. I’m neither but I spill it on the ground after running it through my kidneys. It’s evil.

Effing retards.

Of course, we had enough folks in this country who were retarded enough to pass prohibition, with essentially the same result. And we’ve had one or two FReepers actually start threads calling for prohibition again.

Now, Islam is uniquely saturated with retards. But it doesn’t have a monopoly on it.

All I know is I saw plenty of completely sh*tfaced Saudis drinking in the bars in Bahrain while I was over there. They drive across the bridge (where apparently their all-powerful Allah can't see them) and get hammered in the Bahrain hotel nightclubs while cavorting with Russian prostitutes.

Good times!

Use it to beat the sh*t out of some woman who violated sharia law by being within 500 meeters of beer

It's true. The rules of their strict Wahhabi brand of Islam don't apply outside of the Kingdom. And so many of them have the disposable income and leisurely schedule that jetting off for a week of debauchery isn't a problem.

"A muslim drinking beer"

I think it's Sharps or some other N/A beer. If I remember correctly, he drank N/A at the "beer summit."

I respectfully disagree, Louisiana has banned Sharia in their courts, Oklahoma is next, and finally some politicians are speaking out against the threat of Sharia in America. The tide is turning in our favor.

If you want the links to these articles, just let me know. :)

The Koran is not the only guideline for Islamic Law.
Under Islamic Law it is written as any beverage that intoxicates when taken in large quantities is unlawful in small and large quantities, whether it is wine, raisin drink, or something else.

As long as the adultery is with infidels, it’s OK.

Adultery is fine as long as you are a male and there are fewer than 3 witnesses.

If you are a female and someone makes a unsubstantiated accusation you are as good as dead.
