Topic: Iraq War
Some may be familiar with th valiant record of The Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice AKA mutaween in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia's religious police stopped schoolgirls from leaving a blazing building because they were not wearing correct Islamic dress, according to Saudi newspapers.
In a rare criticism of the kingdom's powerful "mutaween" police, the Saudi media has accused them of hindering attempts to save 15 girls who died in the fire on Monday.
About 800 pupils were inside the school in the holy city of Mecca when the tragedy occurred.
According to the al-Eqtisadiah daily, firemen confronted police after they tried to keep the girls inside because they were not wearing the headscarves and abayas (black robes) required by the kingdom's strict interpretation of Islam.
One witness said he saw three policemen "beating young girls to prevent them from leaving the school because they were not wearing the abaya
But it would appear that even they are being lax in the area of Shari’a if they allow tomatoes to be subjected to the uncontrollable lust of cucumbers!
Learning from al qaeda - a hot tomato and a well endowed cucumber? hat tip other cheek.
American commanders cite al-Qaida's severe brand of Islam, which is so extreme that in Baqouba, al-Qaida has warned street vendors not to place tomatoes beside cucumbers because the vegetables are different genders, Col. David Sutherland said.
Such radicalism has fueled sectarian violence in Iraq and redrawn the demographics of many mixed Sunni-Shiite towns in Diyala, where tens of thousands of Shiites have been forced to flee large population centers.
You know the may be a commercail opportunity here? I am not certain if anyone is marketing Burkhas for Tomatoes.
But there is good news on the Vegable Liberation Front the report of the above crack down on immoral vegetables came from Baquba, and reports from that area are that the Surge is being successful
HH: I’m joined now by satellite phone from Baghdad by intrepid reporter Michael Yon. He’s actually in Baquba. Michael, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show, always a pleasure to speak with you. How goes the fighting on the ground?
MY: Well, it’s really slowed down here in Baquba, Hugh. I was just in the TOC or the headquarters about fifteen minutes ago before I came on the show, and they were like the Maytag repairmen here. I mean, Baquba has just…you know, it was a very serious fight when it started, Operation Arrowhead Ripper on the 19th of June, I came in with them, but it quickly abated. The people have just turned against al Qaeda here. And so Baquba is really, the big fight now is to get the food distribution working again, which it already is. You know, they’ve got that going. And now, they’re working on fuel, because the fuel relates to electricity and water pumping. So really, they’re working on more civic things now. There’s still some combat to do, but not a lot, actually, because like I said, you know, the people just turned against al Qaeda.
HH: Now Michael Yon, a lot of people don’t know the significance of Baquba. And so can you explain what peace in Baquba means for the larger war effort?
MY: Well, it’s huge, because al Qaeda had claimed Baquba as their capitol, their worldwide capitol. And you might recall one of the things that kind of upsets people about my reporting is I said Iraq was in a civil war, and I said that way back in February of 2005, and I continue to do so. But when I first wrote that, I was in Baquba, in 2005, and I spent two or three months here. And it was just total…you could see it, and you could see al Qaeda was trying to foment that civil war, because that’s their underlying strategy, is to do that. And so getting, fracturing al Qaeda here, and al Qaeda alienating so many Iraqis, it’s helping us to put a damper on the civil war.
So that part of the world is now safe for contact between consenting vegetables.
Those that are mature of course, contact between seeds of course would be, well such perversion does not bear thought.Trackposted to Outside the Beltway, Perri Nelson's Website, Rosemary's Thoughts, Big Dog's Weblog, Right Truth, Shadowscope, Stuck On Stupid, Leaning Straight Up, The Amboy Times, Wake Up America, Pursuing Holiness, Adeline and Hazel, third world county, Pirate's Cove, Nuke's news and views, CommonSenseAmerica, Right Voices, http://morewhat.com/wordpress/?p=2130, The Random Yak, DeMediacratic Nation, Jeanette's Celebrity Corner, Adam's Blog, Webloggin, The Bullwinkle Blog, Cao's Blog, Conservative Cat, Conservative Thoughts, Allie Is Wired, The World According to Carl, Blue Star Chronicles, Planck's Constant, Republican National Convention Blog, The Yankee Sailor, and Gone Hollywood, thanks to Linkfest Haven Deluxe.
