This sounds like fun!
Sharia Alert from the democratic new “Arab Spring” Egypt: “Egyptian Businessmen Present: ‘Sharia Tourism,'” by Elad Benari for Israel National News, July 30 (thanks to Kenneth):
In what appears to be another expression of the strengthening of Islam under the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood, Channel 2 News reported on Sunday of a new initiative in Egypt which encourages “sharia tourism.”
The new project, initiated by local businessmen, is directed at the religious sector in Egypt and allows it to take a vacation which follows the rules of Islam.
Two businessmen have launched the initiative as part of a local company called Shouq Travel, and they invite vacationers to arrange their vacation according to Sharia law.
The company”s website says that those who seek a “sharia” vacation may stay in a special hotel and visit specific tourist sites. Women visitors to the sites are required to wear modest clothes and may only be accompanied by a first-degree relative.
Not a second-degree relative!
Anyway, what “specific tourist sites” will be suitable for Sharia tourists? Surely they can’t visit the Pyramids or other artifacts of jahiliyya. Maybe they can take in a stoning, or an amputation. The fun never stops!
Channel 2 News noted that when visiting the company”s website, one may see photos of such vacations, including pictures of family riding a jet ski with a bearded father and a mother who is covered from head to toe.…
