JUST SWORDS? WHAT, NO WALNUTS?
The Jerusalem Post reports:
A hitherto unknown group calling itself the Just Swords of Islam issued a warning to Palestinian women in the Gaza Strip over the weekend that they must wear the hijab or face being targeted by the group’s members.
Whose own faces aren’t all bagged up inside Islamic freedom sacks.
In pamphlets distributed in various parts of the Gaza Strip, the group also claimed responsibility for attacks on 12 Internet cafes over the past few days.
Not exactly modern types, our Just Swords of Islam.
The group said its followers last week threw acid at the face of a young woman who was dressed “immodestly” in the center of Gaza City. They also destroyed a car belonging to a young man who was playing his radio tape too loudly.
These “Just Sword” people sound like the grouchy old guy at the end of the street who’s a little too protective of his lawn. Although even he rarely throws acid at the immodestly-dressed.
Addressing female students, the group said: “We will have no mercy on any woman who violates the traditions of Islam and who also hang out in Internet cafes.”
Hanging out is forbidden, yet hanging is encouraged for the lamest of “crimes”. The Western left will demand action over this, surely.
