Islamic jihadists and supremacists constantly tout the decadence of the West, and preen about Islamic piety. But this piety is enforced at the point of a gun. This is just establishing an empire of fear. “ISIS issues new rules in Mosul for Ramadan,” Rudaw, May 17, 2015 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – In the city of Mosul that it controls, ISIS has declared that people will work only two hours a day and women will not be allowed to leave their homes during the fasting month.
The directive was announced through local television channels in Mosul and on banners posted in the streets, a source inside the city told Rudaw.
It decrees that residents old enough to fast will work only two hours during Ramadan, which begins after mid-June, and spend the rest of the day praying.
“Workers and employees should work only for two hours,” said the source, quoting the directive. “According to the new ISIS rules during holy Ramadan, women are prevented to go outside their homes.”
Earlier this month, ISIS issued a ban on men shaving their beards.
“In all Mosul mosques, preachers threatened men that if they shaves their beards they would be punished because it is against the Islamic Sharia law,” a source had told Rudaw.
