Women targeted in Chechnya
Reuters ^ | August 22, 2010

Many women in Russia's volatile Chechnya region said on Friday they had been harassed and some physically harmed by bands of men for not wearing head scarves during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

Against the backdrop of a spreading Islamist insurgency, many fear that growing interest in radical Islam could fuel separatism in the volatile North Caucasus, where the Kremlin watches uneasily as sharia law eclipses Russian.

Residents and witnesses told Reuters that bearded men in traditional Islamic dress have been roaming the streets both on foot and in cars since Ramadan started on Aug. 11, demanding bare-headed women wear a head scarf.

We are trying to warn women of their possible sins before God.

A woman in her mid-30s said she was punched in the face by a man in Islamic dress after refusing to put on a head scarf he had given her.

Nothing says Ramadan like terrorising and harrassing women!Happy hand grenades everybody!

Muslims will act that way here if they think they can get away with it.

If this was front page NEWS in all papers and on TV stations...would
it make any difference to the leftists who want islam here?

Can’t they see these types of people cannot mix with infidels?
Do they want to live in fear all the time? Gee what is it going to take to open
their eyes?

The WTC wasn’t enough?

Christmas season is “Peace and Goodwill unto Man”

Ramadan is “Punch Women in the Face”

Got it.

All of the newspapers and ALL of TV support this in America. The American TV networks have Saudi investors and FAR too many deals in the Middle East.

Americanbs - losing their country one TV shows and ball game on TV at a time.

Muzzie women are regarded by Muzzie men only slightly higher than infidels and dogs.

"bearded men...roaming the streets...demanding bare-headed women wear a head scarf"

These men are going to busy! busy! busy! having fun! fun! fun! on the beaches of California and Martha's Vineyard--when all those Leftist babes finally succeed in achieving their agenda and decide to strip down to bikinis for a plunge in the surf as a reward for all their hard work!

Should we remind them in advance to watch for the humor? Or should we wait and let them discover for themselves that the joke's on them?

Let's hope the druggies, homosexuals, drunks, and adulterers are ready for a big laugh too!

Having some first-hand knowledge of Chechnya, I doubt it is Chechen men harassing the women like this, but more likely Arab/Pashtun transplants.

They won't last long messing with the women like that since Chechens are a wholly different breed than the Taliban and Al Qaeda animals.

Fruits of islam! Look at what they did to my country of birth, Iran, and still the carterite socialist/progressives are at it spreading their glorious legacy even here in their own countries of birth! When are we going to run them out of town for eternity?

There were an old Russian joke about that:
A soldier sitting there on his BMP at a checkpoint somewhere in Central Asia.
He sees a local couple down the road, a guy riding his camel after a wife who carries a tonn of stuff on her.
Soldier laughs at them asking: “Hey, towelhead! Are you a true muzzie since you let your ugly wife lead your way in front of you? That is not how it is written in your old Qoran!”
A man replied: “You are stupid, young boy! At the time of the Prophet they haven’t mined that roads.”

If the GZ mosque goes up, you’ll see this in New York a lot. They will be VERY emboldened.

It’ll be entirely ignored by the MSM though, even though it’ll be hardcore leftist NY women that receive the bashing. Heck, knowing the types from there most probably won’t even mention it because being non-PC is much worse than being assaulted, beaten, or even raped.

Who uses whose head for what is going to be the question. Muslim heads for playing soccer or Muslim heads for playing buzkazi?

Questions, questions.
