Jihad against beauty, which is, of course, “un-Islamic.”
“Salafists attack Benghazi beauty parlour,” from Magharebia, June 14 (thanks to David):
Salafists attacked a women’s beauty parlour in Benghazi, Libya Herald reported on Wednesday (June 13th). No casualties were reported, but the shop owner said she had repeatedly received threats.
Last week, more than 300 Salafists, poured into Benghazi’s Freedom Square, some of them on vehicles mounted with anti-aircraft guns and heavy weapons, to demand the implementation of Sharia in the eastern Libyan city, but were ousted by protestors in a counter-rally, who were chanting slogans such “Libya is one”, “No to radical ideas” and “Libya is not Afghanistan”.
Good for the counter-protestors. Funny how both they and the Salafists seem to know exactly what Sharia is, and identify it with its implementation in Afghanistan — contrary to the claims of Islamic supremacist deceivers in the U.S. such as Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and Reza Aslan, who claim that it is so vague and variable as to defy description, and simultaneously benign and compatible with Western notions of human rights.
