19 year old Tunisian Amina (FEMEN Tunisia) posted a topless photo of herself bearing the slogan “my body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone’s honour”, what happened next is oh so predictable. The HuffPo has the details …
Tunisian newspaper Kapitalis quoted the Wahabi Salafi preacher Almi Adel, who heads the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, saying: “The young lady should be punished according to sharia, with 80 to 100 lashes, but [because of] the severity of the act she has committed, she deserves be stoned to death.
“Her act could bring about an epidemic. It could be contagious and give ideas to other women. It is therefore necessary to isolate [the incident]. I wish her to be healed.”
If she committed the offence in Tunisia, Amina could be punished by up to two years in prison and a fine of 100 to 1,000 dinars [between £40 and £400], local media said.
Yes indeed, not only gag her, but murder her least this infectious idea of liberation and refusing to bend to their rules spreads … that tells you all you really need to know about their bat-shit crazy beliefs.
So what happens now? Femen have said in a statement they were furious about the “barbarian threats of the Islamists about the necessity of reprisals against the Tunisian activist Amina,” .
“We are afraid for her life and we call on women to fight for their freedom against religious atrocities.
“Use your body as a poster for the slogans of freedom. Bare breasts against Islamism.”
Over 60,000 people have signed a petition calling for those who have threatened Amina’s life to be prosecuted, that was setup by
Buenos Aires, Argentina, it reads …”
We the undersigned unequivocally defend Amina, and demand that her life and liberty are protected and that those who have threatened her will be immediately prosecuted.“
