The forces of radical Islam are getting very bold in Malaysia; an American couple was subjected to a humiliating, terrifying 2 am khalwat inspection by religious enforcement officers:
Retired American policeman Randal Barnhart, who was subjected to a 2am raid by religious enforcement officers, is reconsidering his plan to make Malaysia his second home.
After that unpleasant episode two weeks ago, I do not feel like making Malaysia my second home. It is a pity because both my wife and I really love Langkawi, he said.
On Oct 12, Barnhart, 62, and his wife Carole, 61, were in their rented condominium in Kuah when enforcement officers continuously knocked on their door at 2am, accusing them of committing khalwat (close proximity).
He said the officers demanded to see his marriage certificate, although he had told them that they were Christians and should not be subjected to Islamic law.
We find it difficult to forget the unpleasant episode. My wife was so terrified by the incident that she fears sleeping in that condominium, he added.
Banhart said the officers were rude and insisted on seeing the woman when he opened the door. My wife had to show herself despite only having a sarong on at that time. We felt humiliated for being treated this way, he said.
He said he had to send his wife back to the United States on the next available flight because she feared people might return to the condominium to terrify her in the middle of the night.
She flew home on Wednesday.
I want the religious department to apologise to me and my wife in writing,

We should send them to live with the terrorists they believe can be reasoned with for a few months. Then it'll be save my sorry worthless liberal butt please President Bush.
This nuts not only visited, but he planned to buy a second home and live there.
Good one george... you almost made it attractive. /s
Did you scroll down in the comments section at lgf and see this?
Obviously not, he wasn't on the plane with his wife.
In Saudi, American women can not drive a car off the bases.
These liberal women will have their life styles changed the most.
They will not be allowed to vote, go to school, hold a job...
Langkawi is a resort island near the Thai border. It is a major tourist attraction and source of local employment and income. I suspect that this episode was the result of a local official trying to make a name for himself in his boss' absence. He will be dealt with quietly, but thoroughly.
He said the officers demanded to see his marriage certificate...
Call me a cynic, but this has all the earmarks of a shake-down: A 62 y.o. man together with his 61 y.o. wife are raided at 2 a.m. and commanded their produce a marriage license b/c they might be "living in sin" -- in the name of public morality?
I'm sure if Mr. Barnhart, wallet in hand, had approached the leader of this Sharia'a SWAT team and asked innocently, "Goodness! Did I forget to get the proper permit (license, "papers",whatever)? My memory is getting so bad. Perhaps you could help me with the..."
Strangers on my flight !
You think ?
What kind of an American would want to retire to an Islamic country ?
Hell AT my age she is a hottie.
Did you miss this?
Banhart said he would be sailing to Thailand once his yacht was repaired.
He had a reason to stay behind.
What a waste of time.
That's truely scarey, but not outside the scope of possibilities.
The farther I go into the woods, the better I like it!

" Another interesting thing about Malaysia is that there are actually a lot of Chinese there, working in high tech industries.
Most of them wear gold chains around their necks so when the revolution comes and it's time to run, they can take something with them even if they do not have time to pack. "
