Muslim women protesting Valentine's day

 

Radical Muslims and their leader Morsi gained power in Egypt thanks to Obama's pressure on the Egyptian military to arrest Mubarak and the large number of radical Muslims who rebelled against him.  When they weren't oppressing Christians and  women they decided to ban hugging and kissing from TV.  The military overthrew Morsi and Obama cut off aid to Egypt in response.

Islamic supremacists don’t just want to bypass and denigrate Valentine’s Day. They want you to do so also, and if you don’t, the stones and bullets will start flying. Here again we see that morality in Islamic culture is not so much a matter of virtue freely chosen, but of people living in terror of […]

Here again, when have you ever seen this kind of indignation, this resoluteness to resist, directed by peaceful Muslims against jihad terrorists? Self-proclaimed moderate Muslim spokesmen spend all their time explaining to Infidels how Islam teaches peace and tolerance, and how only greasy Islamophobes teach otherwise. There are no significant Muslim efforts to dissuade Muslims […]

Muhammad al-Arifi has said: “Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will […]

Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and now Uzbekistan. That isn’t all, either. Muslim clerics around the world are railing against Valentine’s Day. Imagine if they expended even a fraction of this energy fighting against the jihadist understanding of Islam, which they ostensibly reject. But no: hijacking Islam is fine. Chocolate hearts for your sweetheart — that’ll […]

Yet there are all sorts of people in Saudi Arabia who take this occasion to express their love for one another, thereby showing that the human heart and the human soul cannot ultimately be contained by a restrictive and repressive ideology that declares so much of ordinary human affection and interaction out of bounds and […]

In Indonesia as well as in neighboring Malaysia, Islamic authorities are up in arms (so to speak!) against a great evil: the twisting and hijacking of their religion of peace by pseudo-Muslim criminals who claim that jihad has something to do with violence — no, wait…Scratch that. That doesn’t seem to upset them at all, […]

I know it does in my house, but I wasn’t aware that it was a worldwide phenomenon. Seriously, though, step back for a minute and think about this: in modern, moderate Malaysia, the Malaysian Islamic Development Department, which distributes official Friday sermon texts to the nation’s mosques, is not railing against jihad terrorism, which is […]

In “Hating Valentine’s” at FrontPage this morning, Jamie Glazov explains why Leftists and Islamic supremacists hate this day: Today, Friday, February 14, is Valentine’s Day, the sacred day that intimate companions mark to celebrate their love and affection for one another. If you’re thinking about making a study of how couples celebrate this day, the […]

Another Valentine’s Day is here, and another Islamic fatwa condemning it has appeared. Popular Egyptian Salafi preacher, Sheikh Abu Ishaq al-Huwaini, said yesterday that the celebration of Valentine’s Day is “forbidden according to Sharia.” He would be one of countless Islamic clerics to condemn that day in recent times. During his televised show, Huwaini said […]


 
 

Sometimes Muslims who who marry for love are killed by their families.  Here is one example from June 2014 and another from 2014.  In the November murder the father explained that he had been compelled to kill his daughter as she wanted to marry for love

SIALKOT: A couple was beheaded in cold blood by the family of the girl over love marriage in Satrah village of Daska tehsil, some 65km from here, on Friday.

According to the FIR lodged with Satrah police station, Sajjad Ahmed, 27, of village Hasanabad, Sialkot, had contracted a love marriage with Muafia Bibi, 23, of Satrah on June 18.

On Friday, seven members of Muafia’s family, including her father Dilshad alias Kulla, uncle Ghulam Husain, Shamshad, Afzaal Husain and Bashiran Bibi, stormed into house of the newly-weds in Hasanabad, bundled them into a van and took them to an outhouse at Satrah.

The suspects tied up the legs and arms of Sajjad and Muafia and cut off their heads with choppers in public but nobody dared stop them, the FIR said. The suspects fled from the village after the incident.

Sajjad’s family told Dawn the couple had come into contact several months ago and wanted to get married but Muafia’s parents didn’t agree to her marriage with Sajjad which led to their love marriage. They said the couple was issued threats by the girl’s family.

In another case, also in June 2014 a girl was burned alive by her parents for marrying for love.
