A reader recently sent me a link to an article from Bare Naked Islam about an email going around asking women to WALK NAKED IN AMERICA DAY. The email informs me that it is my patriotic duty to inform others and if I don't send it to at least 5 persons, then I am a terrorist-sympathizing, lily-livered coward and possibly aiding and abetting terrorists!
Well, I can't have someone thinking that I'm a terrorist-sympathizer so here is the content of that email:
WALK NAKED IN AMERICA DAY
Don't forget to mark your calendars. As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked. He must commit suicide if he does.. So next Saturday at 4 PM Eastern Time, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort.
All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not Muslims and to demonstrate they think its okay to see nude women other than their wife and to show support for all American women. Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your pro-American sentiment. The American government appreciates your efforts to root-out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.
God bless America ! It is your patriotic duty to pass this on. If you don't send this to at least 5 people, you're a terrorist-sympathizing, lily-livered coward and are in the position of posing as a national threat.
Walking naked results in one less Muslim in the world? If only it were that easy. The truth is, Muslim men may say that female nudity is haraam (forbidden), however they enjoy looking at a naked woman just like anyone else. We recall that the WTC terrorists enjoyed naked lapdancers in the months before the attacks:
SNOPES, The Naked Truth
Whether or not Muslims are offended by female nudity is a moot point — clearly the terrorists aren't. An examination of the activities of the hijackers in the days and months leading to the
September 11attacks show that at least some of them "enjoyed naked lap dancers in Daytona Beach" [Palm Beach Post 18 September 2001 (p. A1)]. Nudity is thus highly unlikely to provoke such a strong reaction in any remaining operatives as to cause them to jump up and announce themselves.
Although the email is obvious satire and meant to be taken humorously, what is not funny is that the same women who might safely parade around naked in America, would be molested, raped and killed in Muslim countries even while fully covered in a burqa. As I noted in my article The Myth that Veiling Protects Women from Assault: "75% of all the women in Egypt who reported being sexually harassed were veiled at the time."
