Bikini advert blacked out with spray paint by 'Muslim extremists who object to women in swimsuits'
dailymail.co.uk ^ | May 12, 2011 | Daily Mail Reporter

She is supposed to be advertising a sexy bikini.

But instead the model on this poster, in Birmingham, has been defaced in an act of vandalism blamed on militant Muslims who were offended by her flesh.

Similar acts of vandalism have been carried out in the London borough of Tower Hamlets. Police there also believe extremists are responsible.

The advert, which promotes a £3.99 bikini top from high-street fashion retailer H&M, a scantily-dressed model stands on a sun-kissed, white sand beach.

The freestanding advertising unit, stands in the Balsall Heath area of Birmingham, which has a large Muslim population.

Across the road from 'Muslim Students House Masjeed', an education centre, the poster is next to a busy main road.

The fact that almost all of the model's flesh has been covered has led local residents to speculate that the vandalism was not random, but a religiously-motivated targetted attack.

Delivery driver Robert Tonkins, 45, said: "You see a lot of women wearing the hijab around here, and what's been done to that poster looks very similar to it.

'I don't think it's just kids messing around - they've spray-painted specific areas and covered up anything that might be offensive to very religious people.

In the Muzim mind, it’s OK to beat up women and stone them to death, but it’s not OK to look at them.

Council information on rear?

That’s one way to get people to pay attention to it.

Well that settles it! We now know who runs Britain (Great omitted intentionally). It is not the immoral white Caucasians, it is the upright, religious, Allah-fearing, PC correct Muslims.

I'm not too sure I see a great deal of difference between this exercise in the withdrawl of free speech by a muslim....and the religious zealots who persist in planting huge, white painted crosses on hills next to the highways.

Religious zealotry is religious zealotry.

Wars have been started for less.

I see a huge difference between members of "Group M" covering other peoples' private property with spray paint, and members of "Group C" erecting religious symbols on their own private property.

Perhaps if you apply a bit of logic and reason to the problem then you, too, will see the difference.

Well, according to the laws of Great Britain, this means that the offending model, the company that made up her posters, all must be stoned to death.

Back about 40 years ago, there was an advertisement on the Turner turnpike between OKC and Tulsa, OK.
It was of a beautiful girl laying down facing the camera in a very small bikini!

It made my day each time I saw it. WOW!

In 1976, driving from NM to Tulsa, Inoticed someone had painted a one piece black suit on her.

Bummer. As the old Country and Western song went...

Who is the girl wearing nothin but a smile and a towl
in the piture on the billboard in the field near the big old highway?

How do crosses erected on hills next to highways interfere with free expression? And what makes doing so a form of religious zealotry?

The only `war’ against those crosses has been waged by the ACLU.

Muslim extremists = Pharisees of the 21st century

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of extortion and self-indulgence.” Matthew 23:25

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.” Matthew 23:27-28

* the religious zealots who persist in planting huge, white painted crosses on hills next to the highways.*

Nothing wrong with this. It’s peaceful Christians expressing themselves in a Christian country that would not ever had been great if it weren’t built upon Christian principles that the Founding Fathers fully approved.

“While we are zealously performing the duties of good citizens and soldiers, we certainly ought not to be inattentive to the higher duties of religion. To the distinguished character of Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of Christian.”
—The Writings of Washington, pp. 342-343.

“Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God ... What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”
—Diary and Autobiography of John Adams, Vol. III, p. 9.

“I am a real Christian – that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus Christ.”
—The Writings of Thomas Jefferson, p. 385.

Years ago, I was in a store in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I was in the bathroom fixtures section. There were some shower curtains from Europe, each one had a cardboard tag, showing a woman stepping out from a shower. Only one arm and one leg were showing, but some moslem clerk had scribbled over her body on each tag. There was a pile of International Herald Tribunes on a shelf. On the back page, lower quarter panel, there was a Jim Beam ad. Same moslem took the same magic marker and scribbled over the bottle of Bourbon. In the comics section of the local English language paper, every cocktail held by Gen. Halftrack was whited out, along with every pint of beer held by Andy Capp. Whenever Gen. Halftrack said “martini,” that word was whited out, and “party” was substituted.

One is suppressing Freedom the other celebrates it. If they took their cross and put it in front of your TV or put a cross in the middle of a turn lane at a strip club... you might have a point.
