200 Muslim Clerics Threaten Saudi Labor Minister with Cancer for Creating Jobs for Women

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Back in real War on Women news, there’s always Saudi Arabia, which is actually more backward than it was in the 5th century before Islam. (via Religion of Peace)

A group of religious figures in Saudi Arabia have threatened to strike the labor minister who seeks to create jobs for women with “deadly prayers.” They threatened to pray that he gets cancer like his predecessor Ghazi al-Gosaibi, who died of the disease in 2010.

So what kind of jobs for women are they worried about? Women becoming executives, lawyers or doctors?

No, women working in lingerie stores where they will only interact with women.

During a meeting at the labor ministry on Tuesday, about 200 religious figures accused Minister Adel Fakeih of executing a “Westernization” plan and asked him to ban women from working in lingerie shops within a month or he will face their dangerous prayers.

The ministry began in 2011 enforcing a decision to replace salesmen with Saudi women at lingerie shops in a bid to create jobs for women and meet the demands of female customers embarrassed to buy lingerie from salesman.

So, Saudi Arabia once again takes the prize for being the worst conceivable place on earth… populated by the worst conceivable people on earth.

But the same same Western liberals who picked up the War on Women meme also make common cause with American Muslim grounds funded by Saudi Arabia which promote the Hijab.

But as Obama says, “The future will not belong to those who slander the lingerie of Islam.”

    In the choice between an ignorant medieval savage culture choose the enlightened modern civilized culture….choose freedom…..and add teeth with a 2nd Amendment.

    Of course, Saudi Arabia is the worst conceivable place on earth. After all, all their strict rules at least fetch them one of the least crime rates in the world, and their womenfolk enjoy so much protection that the western countries can only dream of. Don't comment on something until you know the entire truth behind it.
    I'm someone who has been to Saudi Arabia, and I can tell you that their womenfolk are already pretty well-off even without working. Their husbands and fathers hand them credit cards, and the women are at the freedom of spending as much as they want. Say what you want about Arabs, but they are filthy rich. They don't care about money. I can't believe how misguided people are about the Gulf countries. Go to any Middle-Eastern country, and see for yourself, how many benefits women actually enjoy over there. Saudi Arabia doesn't allow women to drive, but that's because a woman should always be accompanied by a male member of her immediate family for her protection. Thanks to that rule, you never see women being pulled out of the streets, and raped in some corner.
    And the hijab and the covering up, believe me, when you actually go to Saudi Arabia, you are totally liberated from the eternal urge of finding sex. The women are all covered up, and so you don't find yourself having an erection every 5 minutes, like you do in western countries. Your brain is free to do its own exploration, and dig out gems you didn't even know were in there. But yeah, the Moozlims are the narrow-minded people because we have such a broadminded view of their practices.

    • Lillith66

      Excuse me, you have an erection every 5 minutes, why don't you try and control yourself you filthy animal. Disgusting, to think you have absolutely no self discipline whatsoever, you should be in jail for the mentally insane, you are an obvious danger to society!

    • Lillith66

      Bull. Try your taqiyya somewhere else troll, we aren't idiots on this site. The sister of a good friend of my husband, (she was an Iranian) went to Saudi Arabia and was involved in a hit and run car accident with her husband. When he came out of his coma she had been put to death for being a prostitute as she did not have her Marriage certificate with her…so you can stick your filthy lies right up your mothers burka!

      • Mary Sue

        ……….

        OMFG! That's…. holy crap. Put to death while her husband was in a coma? That's beyond f___ed up. Saudi Arabia's so backwards it's not even funny.

        I know people who lived there for a few years, they said it was horrible. The wahhabis were the worst; they were discriminatory in the workplace to any non-muslim.

    • Mary Sue

      ……….

      …are you freaking serious?! If Saudi Arabia was such a wonderf__ingful place, women wouldn't NEED a male chaperone for "protection" when they go out of the house, let alone while they drive a car!

      If you don't think their prohibition against Woman Drivers™ isn't wholly stereotypical and sexist, you got another thing coming.

      Covering up women is like blaming them for rape.

    • Mary Sue

      also explain the filthy concept of Muslim only roads. How is it that something akin to white only drinking fountains exists over there?!

    • Ezekiel

      Uh well… I don't think we have the luxury of pointing fingers at Saudi's method, especially when they are effective. The chaperone thing guarantees the safety of women, in comparison to that we have nothing guaranteeing the safety of our women in our countries. Shower your hatred upon Saudi, but it is among the countries with the least crimes. And Lilith, your story is so utterly flawed, if your friend was a foreigner in Saudi traveling with her husband, wasn't her husband's name present on her passport? Or does the Saudi govt not accept international passports? In that case, how did she enter Saudi in the first place? Pretty weak storytelling.

      Plus, the Muslims exclusive road situation is not what most people think it is. 90% of roads in Saudi Arabia are open for Muslims and non-Muslims alike. It is the starting points of cities of Makkah and Medinah where the non-Muslims aren't allowed any further. Only Muslims are allowed in those two cities as they hold very prestigious positions in Islamic history.

      • Lillith66

        Where you there??? Make excuses all you want, we know who you are, we know that your vile religion was invented by a pedophile, a murdering rapist, a thieving madman, a genocidal slaver, and nothing you can say will change that…WE ARE AWAKE – AND WE SEE YOU!

        • Ezekiel

          Lilith, you and I have come across each other for the first time in our lives today, and I have nothing against you and vice versa. So I offer you this humble and cordial invitation for a discussion on this topic outside of this comments area. I just made a wordpress blog. Why don’t we exchange our ideas on that blog’s comments section. I’ll be willing to hear a lot more from your side, and I will hope that you will take into consideration what I have to say as well. If you accept my invitation, kindly head over to the following page, and post a comment:

          • Lillith66

            For what? At the end you will still denounce me as a Kuffar b.!t.ch, and I will still think you are a delusional fool. And anyhow, all I need to do is read the Koran, Hadiths and some of your most famous scholars and clerics, to find out the truth about your prophet and Islam, would you agree? I have and I don't need to discuss any further with you, unless of course you dispute what is written in those particularly lovely documents…do you?

            I have had these discussions before and they go nowhere, because your own prophet is dishonest and orders lies. Hudaibiya was a truce Mohammad made with the Jewish tribe of Banu Quraizah, Mohammad ordered Muslims to deceive the Jews and say that they had renounced Islam so they could infiltrate as spies, and later setup an ambush, break the truce, and massacre all within the tribe. So with that insight anything you would say to me would be in doubt, no? Nothing you say to me can be believed..sad, but true.! If you denounce Mohammad as the perfect man and perfect example, and agree to see him as the savage he was perhaps we could talk, but again, if you did…would you be telling the truth…???

            And around and around we go!

            And BTW, I am an Atheist and equally abuse every ones religion, Islam is just by far the worst of the bunch, in that it is both a religion and a fascist political ideology. It is by far the most anti freedom, anti human and viscous of them all. For a really good exercise put Jesus in a column, Mohammad in one and Buddha in another and start comparing, pros and cons..It will blow your mind in terms of who is kind, loving and just generally seems to love humanity, and who is just a big bag of seething hatred, vengeance, and craziness.

          • Lillith66

            You say .." I have nothing against you and vice versa", first of all, I am not your sister or your wife, so don't speak for me, I have my own opinions, secondly that statement is not strictly true, you do have a lot against me, I am not a Moslem, and as such am considered inferior, and as a woman, I am reviled and considered no better than livestock, and I have a lot against you, namely that your religion wants to dominate the world and ultimately put me in shackles, both literally and figuratively, and that's if I live long enough to even be enslaved!

          • Ezekiel

            Firstly, I can only say that you must have had those discussions with absolutely rude Muslims that you have this opinion of theirs. Secondly, you are openly refusing to believe anything I say, You are actually saying that no matter what I say, it won't change anything. What say can I have in such a situation. Plus, neither non-Muslims, nor women are considered inferior in Islam. And don't worry, I won't "denounce you" calling you "a b!tch". If we can have this conversation over on the blog, I think we can have a lot more productive time. I don't find discussing on this blog as comfortable as doing so on one's own site. I'd have like skype or some messenger as well, but I don't want to invade your privacy. I'm ready to hear everything you have against me and Islam, believe me. :)

            "Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (9:29 Jizya is the money that non-Muslims must pay to their Muslim overlords in a pure Islamic state.)

            The Quran dehumanizes non-Muslims, describing them as “animals” and beasts:

            Those who disbelieve from among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures. (98:6)

            Surely the vilest of animals in Allah's sight are those who disbelieve, then they would not believe. (8:55)

            Verse 7:176 compares unbelievers to "panting dogs" with regard to their idiocy and worthlessness. Verse 7:179 says they are like "cattle" only worse.

            Verse 5:60 even says that Allah transformed Jews of the past into apes and pigs. This is echoed by verses 7:166 and 2:65.

            A hadith (Bukhari 54:524) says that Muhammad believed rats to be "mutated Jews" (also confirmed by Sahih Muslim 7135 and 7136).

            Verses 46:29-35 even say that unbelieving men are worse than the demons who believe in Muhammad.

            According to Islamic law, non-Muslims may be owned as property by Muslims, but – in keeping with Islam's supremacist message – a fellow Muslim should never be (unless they convert to Islam after enslavement). Even Christians and Jews are not considered fully human in that the penalty for killing one of them is limited to one-third of the compensation due for unintentionally killing a Muslim.

            I have nothing against you per se, but I dislike your dangerous religion and if you tell untruths about it I have to assume that you are hiding a deeper and nefarious agenda. As I said I don't believe you, and this is proof that you are telling fibs about equality in Islam. So NO I am not interested in discussing this any longer. You have been caught out. I am done with you!

        " The chaperone thing guarantees the safety of women, in comparison to that we have nothing guaranteeing the safety of our women in our countries."

        That would explain the high rate of domestic abuse.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      "le-Eastern country, and see for yourself, how many benefits women actually enjoy over there. Saudi Arabia doesn't allow women to drive, but that's because a woman should always be accompanied by a male member of her immediate family for her protection. Thanks to that rule, you never see women being pulled out of the streets, and raped in some corner. "

      Yes, they're only raped by family members… also by police officers.

      Saudi Arabia also has a large population of widows and as for their social problems, they have a very high rate of porn usage and child abuse.

      They have plenty of oil money and slave labor, without those their society would implode badly in a minute.

    Heh, how much do you wanna bet the radioactive "prayers" are actually Polonium or something like that?

  • Lady_Dr

    Mary Sue – you have a point. I hope this guy has really good security (electronic, etc., no religious muslims) otherwise they will kill him and claim it was his 'evil' that was responsible.

    I don’t comment, but I browsed some responses on this page 200 Muslim Clerics Threaten Saudi Labor Minister with Cancer for Creating Jobs for Women | FrontPage Magazine. I do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.

    Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of these remarks appear like they are coming from brain dead individuals?
    :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I would like to keep up with you.
    Would you make a list of every one of all your
    public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
