Saudi´s next reform: Scrapping
womens´ abaya headcoverings?

American Thinker, by Monica Showalter

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/10/2018 11:22:29 AM

In what looks like the next shoe to drop, or abaya, as the case may be, a top Saudi cleric has announced that an abaya, or heavy black headcovering, is no longer neccessary attire for Saudi Arabian women. According to Reuters: Saudi women need not wear the abaya - the loose-fitting, full-length robes symbolic of religious faith - a senior member of the top Muslim clerical body said, another indication of the Kingdom´s efforts towards modernisation. On his television programme, Sheikh Abdullah al-Mutlaq, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, said Muslim women should dress modestly, but this did not necessitate wearing

Islam has just opened the floodgates, whether they know it or not. It´s the Middle-East equivalent of the "Women´s Liberation" and the "Sexual Revolution" movements in America back in the 60´s. Things will change like they cannot believe. I hope they´re ready.

None of this was apparently required by the Koran (nor is the simpler hijab). Those were imposed by men.

According to what I’ve read, the Koran only tells women to dress modestly.

Gee, before you know it, islam will be moving into the 8th century. Nothing wrong with modesty, in men or women. Leftists scorn and ridicule Christians for it, but love it in muslims.

Richard Pipes dies: A scholar
who changed the world
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 5/18/2018 9:29:22     Post Reply
The legacy left by Richard Pipes, a historian of Russia who taught at Harvard who died yesterday at the age of 94, rightly should include the fall of the Soviet Empire and the liberation of Eastern Europe. His family, including his son, Daniel Pipes, who, as president of The Middle East Forum, is performing a similar contribution on the resurgent forces of jihad, has my deepest condolences. Even the New York Times obituary of Professor Pipes acknowledges his contribution in turning the United States away from a strategy of accepting Soviet dominance of Eastern Europe and its role as champion of

After sacrificing fifty of their prized terrorists in their latest stunt to discredit Israel in the past week, was it really worth it to Gaza´s Hamas rulers? Based on at least one surprising press account describing the phony staged event, it looks as if the trick fell flat. Get a load of what the liberal-lefty, hoity-toity, Euro-infused Economist is reporting about it: Every state has a right to defend its borders. To judge by the numbers, Israel´s army may well have used excessive force. But any firm conclusion requires an independent assessment of what happened, where and when. The Israelis sometimes used

Can the New York Daily News report anything fairly or honestly? Fresh off this week´s earlier low, calling Ivanka Trump a ´ghoul´ in a dishonest juxtaposition of her attendence at the U.S. embassy ribbon-cutting ceremony in Jerusalem, and some unrelated terrorists getting themselves slaughtered in Gaza, the News is now falsely claiming that President Trump called immigrants ´animals. For the record, Trump called MS-13 gang members ´animals,´ not immigrants. MS-13 is a notoriously foul gang that lives by the law of the jungle, engaging in revenge killings, extortion, kidnapping, murder for gang initiation,

It´s couched in oh so delicate terms, as pretty much everyone mourns the death of the great Tom Wolfe: Tom Wolfe was a reporter, Tom Wolfe was an observer. Tom Wolfe eyed status-seeking. Tom Wolfe skewered the establishment. And through his incredible mastery of words, he entertained the hell out of us. Yes, true enough. But somehow he never got a Nobel prize in literature, despite vastly outranking almost everyone else who has. So I guess I am corrupting things a little when I state the obvious about Wolfe: He did write, he did observe, he did skewer, and by gosh it

He was 87. His death was confirmed by his agent, Lynn Nesbit, who said Mr. Wolfe had been hospitalized with an infection. He had lived in New York since joining The New York Herald Tribune as a reporter in 1962. In his use of novelistic techniques in his nonfiction, Mr. Wolfe, beginning

A so-called lava chaser has ignored evacuation orders to film car-sized ´lava bombs´ being flung hundreds of feet in the air during the continuing volcanic eruptions in Hawaii. Despite continued earthquake activity at the Kilauea Volcano, professional photographer Demian Barrios, armed with an iPhone, ignored strict evacuation orders to don a helmet and gas mask to live stream ‘lava bombs’. When two new fissures opened on Hawaii’s Big Island over the weekend, forcing more residents to evacuate, Mr Barrios, who describes himself as a ‘lava junkie’, went in search of the red hot molten rock. Describing himself as a lava chaser, he told

Flying Lava Bombs From Hawaii´s
Kilauea Volcano Could Spark Mass Evacuation

Hawaii´s erupting Kilauea volcano has been spouting lava "bombs" and threatening escape routes for the people living on Big Island. The eruption, which has already destroyed dozens of homes, has caused 19 new fissures so far, all spewing noxious gases and lava. Officials fear the unpredictability of the volcano, and how long the eruption will last is unclear. A major concern for emergency services is lava devastating roads that could lead locals away from danger. "There´s a lot of worst-case scenarios and roads getting blocked is one of them," Jeff Hickman, spokesman for the Hawaii National Guard, told Reuters. If either of

Fake Indian and harrumphing gambling opponent Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has taken up a rather odd cause: advocating for a brand-new Indian casino in her home state of Massachusetts. According to the Washington Free Beacon: A bill by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) to allow a Native American tribe to continue a stalled Massachusetts casino project is being pushed by lobbyists for Malaysian gambling giant Genting, which invested close to $300 million in the project and risks losing it all. Warren´s bill to help the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe build its proposed casino has raised eyebrows given her record on gambling

Unlike, say, California, volcano- and flood-plagued Hawaii isn´t busying itself with bashing President Trump. Hawaii´s Democratic governor, David Ige, expressed considerable gratitude to the president for his swift response to his two requests for disaster declarations – one for the floods in Kauai in April, and then another for his state´s volcano problems on the Big Island in May. After a bit of delay, Ige asked for aid, and right out the gate, he got it: "I´m grateful for the quick approval of my request for a Presidential Disaster Declaration. This opens the door to federal assistance and demonstrates a solid

Leftists are notoriously touchy whenever anyone questions their patriotism, and the mask seems to be off with a California assemblyman´s proposal to scrap Lincoln´s or Washington´s birthdays as holidays and replace them with the communist May Day. Surreal as this sounds, it´s true. According to the Daily Caller: The California Assembly discussed Thursday a bill that would replace Abraham Lincoln or George Washington´s birthday with International Socialist Workers´ Day as a paid holiday. California Democrat Assemblyman Miguel Santiago introduced Bill AB-3042, which would allow schools to replace Washington Day

Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who´s hosting the Oscars maybe next year and something else at Lincoln Center´s Geffen Hall (his schedule doesn´t look particularly exceptional), has noticed something the Hollywood elites haven´t. Anti-Trump jokes go over like a lead balloon with people who matter to Hollywood: the audience. And Kimmel admits the audience is sick of this tired routine. Kimmel told the Hollywood Reporter: DEADLINE: Having missed last year, this will actually be your first upfronts of the Trump Era.

Askinosie cited three naturally occurring minerals to help readers “connect to the Earth you’re fighting to protect.”

Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign. Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.” Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So,

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need?

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

The palace says he "is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to the Royal Family in this way."

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Attorney Joe diGenova predicted that both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions´ days are numbered at the Department of Justice during a telephone interview with Newsmax´s Howie Carr Wednesday. DiGenova´s claim came after the New York Times published a report titled "Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation". The report has been interpreted by many as an attempt by sources within the "Deep State" to cushion the blow of the imminent DOJ inspector general report, which is expected to be explosive.
