Europe Fights Back: The Veiling Of Sculptures and Statues Campaign

In response to the creeping Islamization of Europe, a group of free-thinking Europeans have started up their "veiling campaign" , again, to coincide with International Women's Day (March8).

On March 6th, across Germany, Russia and Finland, statues and sculptures were veiled in Burqas or headscarves in an effort to bring to light the plight of women under Islam.

Please visit their website for more info.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights, United Nations, Art. 1

"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood."

Quran, Sura 4,34

"To those (women) on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them."

Please feel free to post about this.

The Qur'an is far worse than that on the subject of women! God's eternal, perfect, and irrevocable word says:

men are the superior protectors of women and so women should be devoutly obedient (4:34), you can beat your woman if she is causing you trouble (4:34), you can force a captured woman to marry you, even if she was previously married (4:24), or even if you were previously married, since you can marry up to four wives (4:3), and that women only get half the inheritance of men (4:11), a woman's testimony is worth only half a man's (2:282), a woman is a source of filth that men must be purified from (4:43), that if they are guilty of lewd behavior, you can lock them up until they die (4:15), and that women are forced to be covered in public (24:31 and 33:59).

Thank you for doing your part to wake women up to these dangers!

I would think that not putting a Burqas on statues would be the way to the light. Put one on the statue and then take a picture of it. Leave the picture there for people to see and the statue as it is. Oh well, Never did understand that political statement stuff. One time, after I returned from Vietnam, some students burned a flag on the Campus of Wichita State University. They told me I needed to come to the rally. I told them that they didn't want me there. If they burned my flag, I would just have to kick their butt. I fought for that flag and it is just too close to my heart to stand by and let someone burn it. MUD

Great post, Incog. I'm heartened by those willing to draw attention to the way women are treated by Islamic law. So barbarian.

How's the play going? Wishing you well...

We saw a local playhouse version of "A Raisin in the Sun" last weekend. Really good.

JUSTINH:. Hi, nice to see you again Justin! Thanks for further illustrating how troublesome this religion is for women. Interesting how the leftist, feminists never have a thing to say about how women are treated in Islam.

MUD: Helly my friend. I kind of see their point, though. Apparently they were also attaching a note re. gender equality. As for the burning of the flag.. absolutely reprehensible. I don't blame you.

KAREN, m'dear. Thanks so much for your good wishes. We've all been battling coughs and colds etc. so it sounds like the TB ward backstage.. but we finally opened Friday and all is well.
They just aired a production of "Raisin.." recently... glad you enjoyed. Nothing worse than bad theatre.
will be catching up on blogs this week. will look forwards to it.
