Islamic wackos ban women name it. U.S. Left silent

Ah yes, the so-called "religion of peace."

NAIROBI (Reuters)Women living in areas controlled by Somalia’s Islamists say they are increasingly the target of more draconian rules meted out by the rebels bent on enforcing their ideologies.

In the latest decree by the al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab group that governs most of southern Somalia, women in the seaside town of Kismayu have been banned from carrying out barter trade with the male crews of ships calling at the port.

The women have also been told they cannot shake any male’s hands in public, travel on their own, sell anything or work in an office.

“A woman cannot be seen with a man from another country at the port. The punishment for any woman caught near the port or foreign vessels will be arrest,” a senior al Shabaab commander said in a statement this week.

The al Shabaab group — which means “the youth” in Arabic — have in the past banned movies, musical ringtones, dancing at wedding ceremonies and watching soccer.

So...if you know a stupid leftist who's ever spouted that "all cultures are equally valid" crap, send 'em this link. Ask yourself what kind of leadership bans musical ringtones or watching soccer. Or bans women from traveling alone, selling anything or working in an office.

If your leftist acquaintance persists in claiming all cultures are equally valid, I suggest it shows they are fundamentally unserious about any kind of meaningful debate. The kind of person who insists that the sun revolves around the Earth, or that humans have never been to the moon.
