Saudi Cleric: Nothing Makes Satan Happier Than "Bikini" Olympics-Allah off the Richter scale
MEMRI ^ | 8-13-08 | Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid

 Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Munajid Slams Beijing Olympics: Nothing Makes Satan Happier Than The 'Bikini' Olympics

Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid is a well-known Saudi Islamic lecturer and author. He frequently appears on Saudi TV channels and is known for issuing controversial fatwas. He previously worked in Washington, D.C. at the Saudi Embassy Islamic Affairs Department but was stripped of his diplomatic credentials. [1]

In an August 10, 2008 interview with Al-Majd TV, Al-Munajid was highly critical of the Beijing Olympics, which he called the "bikini Olympics," referring to them as "satanic."

Al-Munajid is known for his criticism of other sporting events. In a January 2005 interview, he said that soccer games "reveal nakedness," adding that women must not exercise in public because they wear "tight fitting, short" outfits to do so, and also that women are forbidden from participating in the Olympics. [2] Al-Munajid also discussed, in a July 2007 interview, how Western "beasts" use public toilets and wear colored underwear "to conceal all that filth." [3]

Following the December 2004 Southeast Asia earthquake and tsunami, in January 2005 Al-Munajid called the disaster "punishment" for sex tourism on New Year's Eve and for drunkenness on Christmas, [4] and said that Allah had "finished off the Richter scale" in vengeance against the infidel criminals. [5]

Before that, in April 2004, Al-Munajid discussed jihad, the U.S., and Iraq, calling America "Heretica" and assuring viewers that "the big explosion will come." [6]

Muhammad Al-Munajid: "How come modern sports - especially women's sports - involve the exposure of private parts? It is well known that the Olympics - both in the past and the upcoming games... the world's worst display of women's clothing is the women's Olympics. No exposure of women's private parts on a global scale could make Satan happier than Olympic games that include women's sports."

Interviewer: "And in a scandalous manner..."

Muhammad Al-Munajid: "Yes. It is an enormous Satanic issue.

[...]

"One of these criminals compared a soccer team that made it to the top in Asia and traveled to Spain to the conquest of Andalusia! Allah be praised! The conquest of lands, the bringing of monotheism to these lands, where the name of Allah is uttered, where Islamic learning and scholars emerge, and where the banners of Islam are raised high - all these you compare to people chasing an inflated piece of leather?!

[...]

"Many people nowadays watch sports rather than participate in them."

Interviewer: "And this is a problem..."

Muhammad Al-Munajid: "If only they would run or move their bodies a little... All they do is sit and watch the sports channels. Some fathers come to me and ask if it is permitted to hook up just to the sports channels. It is for the kids, they say. There is pressure. Football leads to temptation. It is not an innocent sport. Take boxing, for example, or some types of so-called free[style] wrestling, which involve hitting the face, breaking bones, inflicting injuries and pain. They involve obvious bodily harm. The Prophet Muhammad said: If you beat someone, avoid the face. The Islamic jurisprudence authority banned boxing, because it involves beating in the face, which can lead to blindness, brain damage, broken bones, and even death. The beater is not held responsible, because they both consented to this, and the spectators are happy. When someone is beaten in the face and knocked down, they jump for joy.

[...]

"Wrestling involves the exposure of women's private parts. Even the promotion of the competitions is done by scantily clad women. This is done at the beginning of the match, in the middle, and at the end, or so I hear... the matches are promoted by half-naked women.

[...]

"The sport of yoga was originally a Hindu game used for divine worship. For them, practicing yoga is a means of divine worship. Whoever practices yoga today is emulating their form of worship.

[...]

"Beijing or not... I call it Bikini, anyway... because they are likely to display women in the worst possible way in these 'Bikini' Olympic games.

[...]

"What women wear in the Olympic games are among the worst clothes possible. The inventions of Satan, with regard to the exposure of the body in gymnastics, in swimming, in whatever, in tennis... Women have never gotten naked for sports like they do in the Olympics. It is aired to billions of people worldwide. The problem is not just with the spectators who are present. The whole thing is aired on TV..."

Interviewer: "And maybe the men's clothing is more modest than the women's..."

Muhammad Al-Munajid: "There's no 'maybe' about it. It is definite."

Goat humping is OK. Crashing airplanes into buildings full of people is OK. Sending suicide bombers into police stations and pizza parlors is OK. But enjoying the eye candy of bouncing, beautiful, athletic women playing a game of beach volleyball is Satanic?????????

These Clerics are religious dictators that are part of theocracies that destroy all they touch.

They destroy their culture, women, children, prosperity, peace and sanity.

They are the reason the Middle East is so freaking crazy.

They need secular leaders not effected by religion in government and their religion needs to be practiced at home if they feel like it on a voluntary basis.

Islam is doomed.
It is a rabid dog and eventually it will be put down by the rest of the world because they will not be at peace with their neighbors.

The Prophet Muhammad said: If you beat someone, avoid the face.

That's right. The evidence of beatings, stonings, and floggings must be hidden under layers of clothing instead so it can be hidden from the public eye. And let's not even bother talking about "honor killings".....

How come kidnapping Innocent people, of course NOT DURING PRAYER TIME and sawing their head off is okay.

How come they need to be all COVERED UP when they do this?

How come they video tape this and CELEBRATE this as wonderful?

Just where the hell do these evil people get off looking like their perverted beliefs” are superior to the hideous hypocrisy they spout?

Muhammad Al-Munajid is a ten-year-old boy, sniggering with the other ten-year-old boys in the tree fort about how gross girls’ bodies are. Islamic culture in general seems stuck at a pre-pubescent level.

A little understanding here, m'kay? You'd hump goats too if your women began looking like a hairy, homely Saddam Hussein when they turned thirty.

Thanks for posting this article.


It might deserve mention that the original Olympics were performed in the nude.

So, any clothing at all is a step up from that.

Of course they hate women's bodies. Women's bodies represent life and they love death more than we love life (according to Osama bin Laden). They hate women and dogs (two of the best things IN life) and life itself; they love death, and according to the Bible thus hate God.

For God said: Proverbs 8:36 “But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death.”

I often wonder how women can support this insane murder cult called Islam. I mean, it sets womens rights back to a period that never existed as I cannot think of a time when women were subjected to men to such a great extent.

Mollesting pigs, goats, sheep, and camels is ok. Murdering your own children for dishonouring the family is ok. Blowing up busses filled with innocent people is ok. Crashing airplanes into buildings and killing thousands of innocent people is ok. Hacking a reporters head off on world wide television is ok. Beating your wife and children is ok. But, meeting on an international level and playing games that promote peace and harmony dressed in accepted legal athletic garb is Satanic? Anyone that suppots this sick, perverted, backwards excuse for a religion is truly messed up. This religion is like so many other cult religions in the world, if you were not raised as one you would never join in your right mind.

“I often wonder how women can support this insane murder cult called Islam. I mean, it sets women’s rights back to a period that never existed as I cannot think of a time when women were subjected to men to such a great extent.”

That’s why the subjugating of Islamic women from birth is so important. If women knew there was a different way of life or a way out of their subjugation I don’t think they’d put up with it.
