Saudi Islamic cleric Abd al-Aziz Fawzan al-Fawzan is a typical Islamist: spiteful toward the west, a horrible sexist, and major fashion criminal. A well-renowned author and sheikh, he is a professor of Islamic (sharia) law at Imam Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University. That university is also believed to offer classes in suicide vest preparation, floor-licking technique, and methods to butcher infidels.
He claims Western values go against Islamic values, and has claimed that globalization has failed because western values imported into Muslim countries have been a corrupting influence. Many in the west believe globalization has failed due to liberals’ inability to recognize that some cultures simply cannot coexist.
He also stated that Christianity is polytheistic and tried to incite hatred against the religion: “Don’t you hate the faith of such a polytheist who says God is one third of a trinity, or who worships Christ, son of Mary?” …actually, I hate the faith of a person who believes a child-molesting warlord is a divinely-ordained moral exemplar.
al-Fawzan asserts that globalization has brought homosexuality and fornication to the Muslim world. I’m pretty sure the Muslim world has been engaging in all sorts of sex for a long time, frequently of the old-man-on-little-girl variety. al-Fawzan called upon Muslims to be wary of fatwas that could pave the way toward the legitimization of homosexuality and adultery.
al-Fawzan declares his native Saudi Arabia the “most conservative” Islamic country, adding “Allah be praised.” He supports the nation’s ban on female drivers, but not for the obvious safety hazards associated with women behind the wheel. He claims that allowing women to drive would westernize society and bring it down. It might cause endless fender-benders, but destroying society is the job of sharia law and, in the west, socialism. al-Fawzan then called all women who show their faces “harlots.”
This one will make your blood boil. “I don’t think that any woman, throughout human history, has been as oppressed as the western woman today.”
Tell that to every woman who’s had acid thrown in her face because she stood up for herself, every girl who’s been stoned to death or beaten for kissing, every woman who’s forced to dress like a ninja or face violence. Tell that to every woman who’s been raped for not being accompanied by a man, every girl whose genitals have been mutilated in the name of Islam, every woman who fears each night she’ll be beaten if she doesn’t sexually serve her controlling husband. All this, and you still have the gall to say that western countries are “exploiting [women’s] honor” by allowing them to work and live as they please? With all my heart, fuck you, Abd al-Aziz Fawzan al-Fawzan. I hope your 72 virgins are lesbians and don’t let you watch.
