With the Dutch MP Geert Wilders being deported from England for merely wanting to show his anti-Islamic film Fitna, I thought it might be interesting to see how our Muslim lovers embrace the innocent romanticism that is our Valentine’s Day. Well it turns out, love is not in the Arab air. In Saudi Arabia, not only can’t you bugger the gal of your choice after a nice dinner and a bottle of ripple but you can’t even buy her a card on this western “day of lust.”
The Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia are the world’s worst fanatics with their pre-historic garb and theological handicapping. They have no problem embracing pseudo-science or fairy tales with genies and angels but acknowledging Valentine’s Day is seen as an affront to God. As Feb. 14 approaches, newspapers reprint a fatwa issued by “scholars” declaring “eid al-hob,” Arabic for the feast of love, a “Christian, pagan feast” that Muslims should not celebrate. I would have thought the jihadist reward of 99 black eyed virgins set the benchmark for pagan love feasts. Must be my lax belief system.
It isn’t just St Valentine these bearded and robed charlatans despise, all non-muslims are banned from openly practicing religion in Saudi Arabia though to be fair criticizing Islam, just like in Merry Old England, is strictly forbidden.
