"Not wearing the hijab would affect the honesty of her testimony."
The case appears to involve an Arab Christian woman from the Jordan Dubai Islamic Bank for not wearing a Hijab. Now an Islamic Sharia Court has ruled about what you expect from an Islamic court.(via Religion of Peace)
Especially when it relies on the Muslim Brotherhood.
The court announced late last week that it agreed with one lawyer's statement - based on a fatwa - that says a woman who does not cover up or wear a hijab is considered a “slut” and shouldn't be allowed to testify in court.
“The Amman Sharia Court of Appeal has accepted the lawyer’s objection to a female witness from testifying for not wearing the hijab, which the court said would affect the fairness and honesty in her testimony.
According to the fatwa, which the court’s decision was based on, women who aren’t covered up are “sluts,” and that gives those women a bad name. Furthermore, the court was unable to support this fatwa apart from with something written in the introduction of a book by Egyptian Islamic Theologian Sheikh Yusuf Al Qaradawi.
Yusuf Al Qaradawi is the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and when he isn't calling for genocide, he's calling for terrorism. Also he's for burning gays to death, beating women and has typically Islamic views on rape.
When asked if female rape victims should be punished under Islam, Qaradawi replied: “To be absolved from guilt, the raped woman must have shown some sort of good conduct."
You might get the idea that Qaradawi is some 'whacko extremist', but his Muslim Brotherhood dominates Muslim organizations in the US and Europe. The campus Muslim Students Association is another Brotherhood front. If you see a spokesman on television, the odds are that he agrees with Qaradawi.
That's the future of Islam in America.
The Hijab is not a choice. Islam is not a choice. They're only choices in non-Muslim countries and not always then.
