Topless Femen Activists Target Swedish Mosque
The Local ^ | 6/29/2013

Posted on 06/29/2013 10:56:52 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Three women from the feminist activist movement Femen entered a mosque on Södermalm in central Stockholm on Saturday morning, baring their breats and chanting "No sharia" and "Free women".

The women entered the main central Stockholm mosque at around 11am on Saturday.

Mosque employees called the police who dispatched several units to the scene. Shortly after their arrival they emerged with the still bare-breasted women and walked to a transport vehicle.

According to the duty police officer Jonas Svalan the women are now suspected of disorderly conduct due to their nudity and assault for having allegedly shoved somebody.

The women are reported to originate from Egypt, Tunisia and Sweden.

Femen is originally a Ukrainian women's group that applies "sextremism" to draw attention to equality and democracy issues.

The group's perhaps most high profile campaign came during the European Football Championship in 2012 when Femen's bare-breasted leaders capitalized on the massive media presence to stage protests against sex trafficking.

The group has recently been very active in France and only last week several activists accosted the French President François Hollande as he visited the Paris airshow.

Earlier this year they caused outrage when they bared all at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris to bid their own 'adieu' to Pope Benedict.

Normally, I don't care for feminazis but these ones seem to be drawing attention to legitimate issues thus far. I give them a thumbs up.

So the left and Islam fight it out over who defeats civilization.

I should get cable so that I can watch the struggle.

And they just walked into a Swedish mosque and raised hell over Sharia law. gutsy and worthy of respect IMO. While I probably won’t be sending them money, I do wish them well as they are clearly an enemy of my enemies.

They only exist because a free society tolerates and protects them. They wouldn’t last long in a Muslim country. In Iran they’d be stoned.

Good point and I do agree with you. I can’t think of any other group of “women” who have gone after the Muslims. Good for them.

But doing it topless proves what exactly? Lol.

It proves that people post articles and others like us read them when they involve topless women.

1. The girls are almost universally quite photogenic.

2. The photos are almost universally NSFW and not FR-appropriate.

3. The girls are almost always screaming loudly. As beautiful as they are, one would get tired of having them around. Eventually.

These Femens are Ukrainian, right? And they're all pretty hot, unlike the domestic feminazis. What's going on? Here's a theory: there is an excess supply of Ukrainian brides and not enough demand, causing sexual frustration among many of the brides. Men, please help!
