Breastfeeding adult men sparks holy war
WorldNetDaily ^ | August 3, 2010 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 08/05/2010 5:10:41 AM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

The Islamic population in the Middle East has been caught up in a new war, but it is its own enemy in the fight over a "fatwa" that authorizes the breastfeeding of adult men.

"The fatwa-issuing thugs give orders, pass judgment, and make decisions: love is forbidden; looking [at a man] is a sin; expressions of love are contemptible – [but] as for breastfeeding, that is permissible, permissible, permissible," wrote Nadine Al-Budair, a presenter for the U.S. Arabic-language television station Al-Hurra.

The dispute has been monitored by the Middle East Media Research Institute, which has compiled a history of it and added comments from contemporary Muslims interests.

The issue first arose in Egypt in May 2007 when a "fatwa" – an Islamic religious decree – was issued from "Izzat" Atiyya, who used to be chief of the Hadith Department at Al-Azhar University. Atiyya permitted a woman to breastfeed a man with whom she must work in private, which MEMRI reported led to Atiyya's dismissal from his school position.

The dispute returned to headlines just a few weeks ago when Sheik Abd Al-Muhsin Al-Obikan, in the Saudi Justice Ministry, issued a "fatwa" allowing the breastfeeding of adults.

MEMRI documents how the rules are aimed at "enabling an unrelated man and woman to be secluded in the same room, a situation which Islam considers forbidden gender mixing."

The report explained the fatwas regarding breastfeeding suggest it creates "a bond of kinship between the man and woman … thus making it acceptable for them to be together in seclusion."

The latest edict "created a stir in Saudi Arabia and in the Arab media at large, arousing a wave of criticism from clerics and columnists alike," MEMRI reported.

The fatwa doesn't 'allow' it, it requires adult breast-feeding to allow unrelated co-workers in the same room.

Yes, this is your brain on Islam.

Yes. Everytime I think they have exhausted the limits of freakish attitudes and desires, they astonish me once again.

As far as I am concerned, beer and BLTs are proof that God loves us, and that Islam is a misguided cult.

From the article title...

“Breastfeeding adult men sparks holy war”

...I was sure this story would be about fat cross-dressing sand fleas.

Desert nomads historically survived on animal milk and blood. Desert Bedouins generally become toothless at an early age from rock candy chewing. These generous women succor these camel less and goat-less modern urban nomads. Hope and change we can all someday count on.

Well—it’s not as bad as I first thought—from the headline, I thought adult men had somehow figured out how they could breast feed their infants, or something like that—LOL!

You don’t have to be Sigmund Freud to see the psycho-social implications of this. Islam truly is a religion for men who never grow up.

Now if unmarried or unrelated couples go off together in seclusion to hold hands they (actually the woman) could be flogged. If they have sex she could be stoned to death. However, if they go off together so the man may “breast feed” that is OK. These people are FUBAR.

breastfeeding, that is permissible, permissible, permissible," wrote Nadine Al-Budair, a presenter for the U.S. Arabic-language television station Al-Hurra

Also the exclamation of Muslim men at the proclamation of this fatwa...

Bond? sure! Kinship? Not so much. I think after trying the milk I might want to sample other delicacies.

When they have to get permission from a fatwa in order to act human, it is a sad commentary on Islam and its culture.

But the upside is that the West is winning the cultural battle!

Titters are running through crowds of burquaed women as we speak!!
