    swifty,

    ..2: The day after 9/11 in Burton On Trent, some (again) some little Muslim kids excitedly running up to me and asking me what I thought about "King Obama" .. I just answered with "I don't know, I've never met him" and that seemed to satisfy them enough..

    I don't get this.

    George W Bush was president then. how does Obama fit in ?

    That's the most reasonable explanation.

    Vardogger,

    Fortean indeed.

    Obama wasn't really on the scene then. Maybe the kid was seeing into the future.

    Osama was being touted as the leader, the culprit for the plane attacks on 9/ll at that time and some people still think he was responsible .. and yes, I probably did right Obama by mistake .. I haven't met Obama either btw.

    Muslim viewers watching Islamic television expect imams, prayers and religious guidance not hardcore pornography.

    Yet shocked onlookers last week witnessed full-frontal nudity and explicit sexual acts on a lunchtime programme.

    Privately run Touba TV blamed the ‘criminal act’, which lasted 20 minutes, on a ‘Satanic trick designed to undermine a channel.’

    Broadcast on Wednesday during the lunch hour, the Taxiru Juma show was interrupted with porn.

    Senegal is a deeply Muslim country with more than 90% of the population subscribing to Islam. ...

    A short video of Iran in the 70s, and what happened to those smiling women in jeans and swimsuits.



    A cautionary tale. Progress isn't inevitable.

    Have you read the graphic novel Persepolis? It's about the author's childhood during and after the Islamic revolution. She herself ended up moving to France.

    Haven't read the book, but I did see the film of Persepolis and it was fantastic. Recommended if you couldn't get your hands on the comic. Perceptive, funny and eye-opening.

    Marvel fires artist Ardian Syaf over religious references in X-Men comic book
    FROM THE TOPICENTERTAINMENT

    12/04/17


    [​IMG]
    Marvel has sacked X-Men artist Ardian Syaf after he hid religious references in a current issue of the comic.

    The publisher says that Ardian's contract has been "terminated immediately" but that his work will still be seen on shelves.

    Issues two and three of X-Men: Gold, where he was the lead artist, have already been sent to print.

    Ardian referenced a verse from the Koran and the date of a Jakarta protest in the first issue of the comic.

    He also drew X-Men leader Kitty Pryde, a Jewish character, in front of a jewellery store with only the first three letters of the word clearly visible.

    Comic books have 'problem with diversity'
    Indonesian artist Ardian claims he only used the Koran references out of "Love to Allah" and stated that "my career is over now".

    "It's the consequence what I did, and I take it," he wrote on Facebook.

    "Please no more mockery, debate, no more hate.

    "In this last chance, I want to tell you the true meaning of the numbers, 212 and QS 5:51.

    "It is number of JUSTICE. It is number of LOVE. My love to Holy Qur'an... my love to the last prophet, the Messenger... my love to ALLAH, The One God."
