Revisiting the Muslims (Taliban)

It's been a while since I mentioned the Mo's followers. Readers might begin to think I'm going soft.
No way!!
For today's amusement, I present a list of banned items from the Taliban.

My favorite is the ban on paper bags (and recycled paper) because of the possibility that pieces of the Koran may be included in the product. Penalty is (OF COURSE) death.

  • banning all female schools, including female-only schools
  • banning women from picnic spots or tourist attractions
  • banning women from working
  • Banning all profanity, with death penalty by stoning if caught
  • Banning women for showing ankles (punished by whipping)
  • Banning women from laughing loudly
  • Banning women from wearing high-heel shoes, which would produce sound while walking.
  • Banning women from riding bicycles or motorcycles, even with relatives or husbands.
  • Banning women from gathering for festive occasions such as holidays, or for any recreational purposes
  • Banning women from wearing nail polish.
  • Banning women from washing clothes next to rivers
  • Modification of all place names including the word "women." For example, "women's garden" has been renamed "spring garden".
  • Compulsory painting of all windows, so women can not be seen from outside their homes.
  • Banning women from wearing flared (wide) pant-legs, even under a burqa.
  • banning leather jackets
  • banning white socks
  • banning all sports played between late afternoon and evening to avoid disturbing prayers
  • banning all foreign currency
  • Banning all film and talking pictures
  • Banned TV and VCRs
  • Ordered that all people with non-Islamic names change them to Islamic ones.
  • Ordered that men wear Islamic clothes and a cap.
  • Forced all men (including non-Muslim) to wear beards
  • Ordered that all people attend prayers in mosques five times daily.
  • Banning the keeping of pigeons and playing with the birds, describing it as un-Islamic. The violators will be imprisoned and the birds shall be killed.
  • Forcing Hindus to wear Hindu ID patches on their clothing
  • Banning kite flying
  • Banned celebrating the Shia new year
  • Banning all English language classes
  • Banning the display of any drawings or sculptures of living things at workplaces

Sounds like a virtual paradise.

I doubt even old Mo even had such a large stick up his own ass.

Hammer, there's a book called "The Truth About Muhammad" by Robert Spencer that is worth reading.

The western world needs only one thing on its banned list: islamists.

That's quite a list.
Maybe we could all have some fun, and see just what items would get each of us banned!
