The "religion of peace" at its best. Hey, I'm all for purity before marriage because that is God's plan. But, I think the Muslims are overreacting when it comes to the issue of immorality. The death penalty is a little extreme, is it not?
From Israel Matzav:
And you thought Egypt was a secular country
In Egypt, a leading Islamic scholar has called for the death penalty for anyone found smuggling in a device that allows women to fake virginity on their wedding nights.
'Abdul Mouti Bayoumi said supplying the item was akin to spreading vice in society, a crime punishable by death in Islamic Sharia law.
The device is said to release liquid imitating blood, allowing a female to feign virginity on her wedding night.
There is a stigma about pre-marital sex in conservative Arab societies.
The contraption is seen as a cheap and simple alternative to hymen repair surgery, which is carried out in secret by some clinics in the Middle East.
It is produced in China and has already become available in other parts of the Arab world.
The device is reported to be on sale in Syria for $15.'
And you thought Egypt was a secular country. Heh."
