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. 
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.  Al-Munajid also discussed, in a July 2007 interview, how Western "beasts" use public toilets and wear colored underwear "to conceal all that filth." 
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,  and said that Allah had "finished off the Richter scale" in vengeance against the infidel criminals. 
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."

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."

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".....
Or so I hear ... yeah right!
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?
Wow, somebody doctored my wife’s picture and made her a blond.
I suppose we should be pleased we through him out, but how did this guy get into the US in the first place. Not what we want interfacing with the American Muslim community.
How much do yall want to bet this muslim “holy man” has Tivo’d each and every one of the “satanic” events so that they can “condemn” them again in the privacy of their own homes later.
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.
Do you ever get the impression that these ‘clerics’, once the microphones and cameras are turned off, immediately start looking for the nearest goat?
Satan may be happy, but somewhere in 72 Virginsland the Phrophet has a boner.
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.
Sounds like someone is full of fecal matter from NOT using public terlets.
No wonder he's so cranky.
“Wow, somebody doctored my wifes picture and made her a blond.”
So, what was it like being in Motely Crew, Mr. Sixx?
Nothing makes satan happier than jihad, and that includes bikini jihad. Mr theocratic, puritanical dictator wannabe needs to get laid (not including children/pets/livestock).
According to the Bible, it is Satan that is responsible for ‘man’ having to wear clothes to begin with.
Bush is way too friendly with these characters.
I think it will be a few more months after that before she gets that similar figure back.
