  • Saudi Arabia Becomes Last Country in the World That Allows Women to Drive

    If you were following international news closely, you’ve probably already learned that the Islamic Wahhabist radical regime that is currently ruling Saudi “Barbaria” just allowed half of their citizenry to drive cars. As the clueless left-wing Islam loving mainstream media wrongly put it, Saudi Arabia entered the 21st century in 2018, finally. The truth is, they’ve actually entered the 20th century, 100 years late unfortunately. Since the despised culture of the deplorable white man started the industrial revolution back in the 19th century, and automobiles entered mass production early in the 20th, women were never banned from driving cars. Hell,...
  • Saudi Arabia's ban on women driving about to end

    06/23/2018 11:36:24 AM PDT · by BBell · 8 replies
    Saudi women are to be allowed to drive from midnight local time (21:00 GMT) after a ban comes to an end. The change was announced last September and Saudi Arabia issued the first licences to women earlier this month. It was the only country left in the world where women could not drive and families had to hire private chauffeurs for female relatives. However the move comes amid an intensified crackdown on activists who campaigned for the right to drive. At least eight women's rights activists are being detained and could face trial in a counter-terrorism court and long prison...

The man behind the movies - producer and President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige - has teased to the BBC that the story writers are gearing up to introduce Ms Marvel in the near future.

    BERLIN (AP) — A Berlin court has ruled that a law prohibiting a Muslim teacher from wearing a headscarf in a public school doesn’t violate her constitutional right to religious freedom. The dpa news agency reported Wednesday that the Berlin labor court ruled that the city-state’s so-called neutrality law banning all religious clothing for public teachers, police officers and judicial employees wasn’t unconstitutional.
  • Dubai missing princess: Call for clarity on status of Sheikha Latifa

    05/05/2018 7:36:20 PM PDT · by BenLurkin · 19 replies
    Sheikha Latifa - the daughter of the Emirate's ruler - is said to have tried to flee in March in order to live a freer life abroad. But witnesses say the luxury yacht she was travelling on was intercepted off India, and she was returned to Dubai. She has not been seen since. Dubai's authorities say they cannot comment for legal reasons. Sheikha Latifa, the daughter of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, was snatched while trying to escape the country, according to reports. A BBC Newsnight investigation, which was broadcast on Friday, claimed she had received the help of...

    If ever there was a bipartisan cause in this country, shouldn't it be banning female genital mutilation? Well, a bill banning FGM in the state of Maine was just voted down -- along party lines. As Townhall's Elizabeth Yore reports, "69 GOP (and 1 Dem) [voted] for the bill and 77 Dems and Independents [voted[ against an FGM bill that would criminalize female genital mutilation." Yore continues: "The Democratic House legislators who voted against this FGM bill curiously argued that 'FGM doesn’t happen in Maine,' despite the fact that Maine is one of only eight federal pilot programs to address...

    Following swift action from Maine House Democrats on the last day of the legislative session, there will be no Female Genital Mutilation ban in the Pine Tree State.After months of pretending they wanted to stop the barbaric ritual child abuse of FGM, the Democrat caucus showed their true colors on the issue late Wednesday night.By a final vote of 77-70, the House killed the FGM ban in a mostly party-line vote. Rep. Cathy Nadeau (D-Winslow) was the only Democrat who crossed the aisle to protect young daughters of immigrants in Maine from this brutal abuse.You can see a full roll-call...

    The leaders of the Women’s March are struggling to deal with the group’s ties to notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, and they are concerned about the effects on their "intersectional" movement. The leaders of the Women’s March have said the Farrakhan controversy is part of a "learning process" that has to do with understanding people’s "different experiences," BuzzFeed reported. Farrakhan, the leader of the Nation of Islam, said in a speech that Jews are "the mother and father of apartheid," and declared that "when you want something in this world, the Jew holds the door." Women’s March co-chair Tamika Mallory attended...

    This is the real women’s rights movement, while feminists in the West actively support the oppressors and name sharia-enforcers such as Linda Sarsour to their leadership. The left is evil. Posted online with the hashtag #NoHijabDay, a response to last week’s World Hijab Day event, the videos show women removing their headscarves and setting them on fire in front of the camera. For the millions of women and girls forced to wear the cover-up, such a tribute is ghastly.

    Pamela Gellar ^ | January 20, 2018 | Jean Patrick Grumberg
    THE MEDIA, WITH THE WILLFUL BLINDNESS THAT DEFINES THEM SO WELL, HAVE DECIDED TO APPLAUD L’ORÉAL’S CHOICE OF AMENA KHAN TO CELEBRATE DIVERSITY. They obviously decided to ignore that the young woman is an anti-Semitic of the worst kind. Unfortunately for Mainstream Media, we write what the press does not want us to write, we denounce what they want to hide, and we say what people do not want us to say. Thus, L’Oréal Paris decided to broaden its “representation of diversity” in one of its advertisements, using the services of the beautiful British blogger, model and cosmetics designer. The...

    From escaping Iran through the mountains as a Muslim refugee, to surviving domestic abuse and imprisonment in a Turkish prison, to carving out a life in Sweden, Annahita Parsan’s story is the stuff of a Hollywood movie. Parsan, a convert from Islam to Christianity and mother of two, has emerged as one of the most prominent religious figures in Europe, both because of her unlikely geographic and spiritual pilgrimage and her decision to reach out to Muslims with the gospel -- at great personal risk. *snip* On the heels of bringing a daughter she named Roksana into the world and...

    The Women’s March is facing intense pressure to come out in support of Iranian women protesting the fundamentalist Islamic regime. Women have become symbolic leaders of the protests, which are entering their sixth day, by removing their hijab in defiance of laws mandating they cover their faces and hair. One image that has gone viral shows a young woman standing above a crowd, waving her jettisoned white hijab like a flag. The death toll from the anti-government protests rose to 21 overnight, and at least 450 people have been arrested. The Women’s March is busy rolling out its anniversary protest...
  • Tehran Police: No More Arrests for Flouting [Islamic] Dress Code

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Police in Iran’s capital said Thursday they will no longer arrest women for failing to observe the Islamic dress code in place since the 1979 revolution. The announcement signaled an easing of punishments for violating the country’s conservative dress code, as called for by the young and reform-minded Iranians who helped re-elect President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate, earlier this year. But hard-liners opposed to easing such rules still dominate Iran’s security forces and judiciary, so it was unclear whether the change would be fully implemented.

    The facts at hand presumably speak for themselves, but a trifle more vulgarly, I suspect, than facts even usually do. Asmi Fathelbab, a former employee of the Arab American Association in New York when feminist heroine Linda Sarsour was its executive director, accused Sarsour Sarsour of dismissing her claims of sexual assault and harassment, and following through on threats to destroy Fathelbab’s attempts to get a job if she didn’t retract the charges. But Sarsour had no interest in, or patience for, Fathelbab’s allegations. “She called me a liar because ‘Something like this didn’t happen to women who looked like...

    Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour accused members of the “Jewish media” for her bad reputation, in an event entitled “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice” Tuesday night at New York City’s The New School.“If what you’re reading all day long, morning and night, in the Jewish media is that Linda Sarsour and Minister Farrakhan are the existential threats to the Jewish community, something really bad is gonna happen and we gonna miss the mark on it,” Sarsour remarked in an event intended to be “a discussion on how to combat” bigotry against Jews.It should be noted that Farrakhan once praised Adolf Hitler as...

In reality, she had set off on a path that would lead her to a lengthy legal battle that would cost her hundreds of thousands of pounds. Ms Noor had many good things in her life: a university education, a professional career and a good salary, but she had always dreamt of having children. As a single woman, she, like many other British Muslims, was...

    Time Magazine has added the Nike hijab to their “25 Best Inventions of 2017” list. In their list, Time claimed the $35 sports hijab “empowers Muslim athletes,” and placed the “invention” just below Apple’s iPhone X. “It’s tough to play sports in a hijab,” claimed Time. “If the material is too heavy, it causes excess sweating. If it’s too light, it might fall off during competition. And if it’s fastened in the wrong way, ‘you can feel like you’re going to choke,’ says Manal Rostom, an Egyptian runner based in the United Arab Emirates and the founder of the ‘Surviving...

    Meet Mattel’s latest doll: dressed conservatively, covered head to toe with only her hands and face visible. The fabric she wears is extra-thick, so there’s no chance of seeing skin. This Barbie wears no adornments. She also wears a hijab. This new Barbie has been spun by Mattel and the doll’s inspiration, Muslim Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, as “empowering” for young girls. Really? Growing up in Maplewood, New Jersey, Muhammad wasn’t an integrated American teen: Her parents insisted she cover up at all times, even when playing on volleyball and softball teams. In 2011, she told the Wall Street Journal...

    The woman who became the first US Olympian to compete wearing a hijab now has a Barbie modeled after her—and it's the first one to wear a headscarf in the doll's 58 years of existence. Bronze medalist and sabre competitor Ibtihaj Muhammad, 31, made headlines when she donned her hijab at the Rio Olympic games last year. Today, she unveiled the doll Mattel made in her honor as part of its 'Shero' line dedicated to inspirational women, which also includes Ava DuVernay, Ashley Graham, who hosted the doll's debut in New York City, Misty Copeland, and Gabby Douglas. Ibtihaj posed...
