Aliaa is not obscene; you are!

The disgusting Islamists have taken legal action against Aliaa Magda Elmahdy and her blogger boyfriend for ‘violating morals, inciting indecency and insulting Islam’.

Ahmed Yehia, coordinator of the coalition of Islamic law graduates, wants them to be punished according to Sharia law saying she was ‘trying to spread her obscene ideology through the nude pictures.’

In fact what’s clear for all to see is that it is religion and Islamism that are obscene.

No, it’s not Aliaa that is ‘giving the uprising a bad name’; it’s you lot.

And the sooner we get rid of you Islamists, the better off we will all be.

    I hope to never know for sure wither I would have the courage Aliaa has in standing up to oppression.

    What Aliaa is doing is no more ‘obscene’ than drawing a political cartoon.

    I really hope she is not harmed because of this.
    And I hope the people who live in free societies and criticize her actions come to their senses.

    Isn’t it weird that even though Aliaa is super hot, and I have just been looking at pictures of her naked, I’m still not feeling an uncontollable urge to go out and commit rape? Maybe I’m just not in a rapey mood today.

    I am concerned about her. The risk of violence is real.

    She’s insanely brave. I hope the act does what they’re aiming for because the potential cost to herself is very high. I also hope this was totally her own idea.

    Here! Here!

    Also, if there’s anyway I can help protect this couple from the thuggery and bigotry that is shari’a law I’m willing.

    So… does anybody have a decent translation of what she’s actually saying in that post? Google tells me that the page is already in English and spits out something I can’t quite make sense of when I paste the text in >.<

    Finding the photos is all but unavoidable, but trying to find out what a blogger has to say about her own pictures is damn near impossible…

    IMPORTANT/ This is what Aliaa wrote on her blog under the photos roughly translated into English “Put nudist models who worked at the (Egyptian) Faculty of Fine Arts until the early seventies on trial, conceal the art books and break the naked archaeological statues. Then take off your clothes and look at yourselves in the mirror, and burn your bodies that you despise in order to get rid of your sexual complexes forever… before you hit me with your racist insults or deny me my freedom of expression!”

      Thanks for posting this; I had seen it somewhere but forgot to add it. She’s brilliant!

    Ironically Ms. Aliaa Magda al Mahdi’s action has gone far beyond triggering the reactionary hypocrisy of her own culture to revealing the god fearing™ prudery of the mainstream US media who without exception only show censored versions of her photograph therewith of course also censoring her message.

      The censorship by the US media is something that bothered me too. They might as well be spitting on her message when they censor her in the name of keeping their news “Family Friendly” or whatever bullshit it is.

    How does this fit into your claim that the overhyped ‘arab spring’ was a revolt against capitalism? Clearly all this shows is that western leftists are projecting their own fantasies onto events that are not creating positive change: the Egyptian ‘revolution’ only worked because the military resisted Assad because they wanted to form a junta. Given that over 80% of Egyptians support stoning its unlikely that some sort of utopia will form; although its fun to see a live performance of animal house.

    Whoops I meant Mubarak, I’m currently sleep deprived and making typos like crazy.

    The junta is pretty much the best option for them; elections would only result in a win for Islamists but any elections would probably be rigged by the junta who are not going to give up their new found power.

    Similarly the ‘green movement’ in Iran was just a theocratic faction pissed off that Mousavi, a founder of Hezbollah didn’t take a ceremonial post, assuming that any pissant throwing stones on the street shares your exact views is childishly naive.

    Islam is the problem here. It’s 4000 years old of zelots thinking for you, rather than any one who follows that religion to think for themselves.

    Sharia law saying she was ‘trying to spread her obscene ideology through the nude pictures.’ Do you think this picture will make the rest of the country peel their clothes off and run threw the streets ?

    You people are goofballs that should think outside the box for once and for yourselves, Freedom of speech and expression are not against the law. I don’t think God will condemn this girl for this,not like the Islamic backwards goofballs. You people are sheep.

    You ignore any other factors (dictatorship, the current junta) only choosing to pin it on ‘Islam’ then you go on to define Muslims as inherently inferior to yourself, are you 16? If not stop acting like it. Much of what is referred to as a Sharia law are recent practices by people whose victims are mostly Muslim.

    “You people are goofballs that should think outside the box for once and for yourselves, Freedom of speech and expression are not against the law. I don’t think God will condemn this girl for this,not like the Islamic backwards goofballs. You people are sheep.”

    This is blatant bigotry.
