Iran police 'target mannequins'
From BBC News:

Iranian police have warned shopkeepers not to display female mannequins without a hijab, or showing bodily curves, Irna news agency reports. Display of bow ties and neckties, and the sale of women's underwear by men are also banned, the police said. The move is part of a crackdown on Western influences and enforcement of dress codes in recent years.

"Un-Islamic behaviour" has been targeted since President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's first election in 2005.

"Using unusual mannequins exposing body curves and with heads without hijabs are prohibited to be used in the shops," police said in a statement carried by Irna.

Correspondents say that in the past such campaigns usually only lasted throughout the summer, but last year's crackdown, including on tight trousers for women, was still continuing in the winter. Iranians who violate dress codes for the first time are generally cautioned, but repeat offenders can face court action and "guidance classes".


They don't just hate us for our freedom, but for our plastic women.

i found this one fascinating, i had come to many of his conclusions in my own research..

Ali doesn't think much of Obama.. but this book is based on information found in the 3 major holy books of Islam.. cuts thru the propaganda .

not many people in the west know anything about islam other than what little they are told .. with no details. and you wont find much of what islam is about in the Koran, it is the Sunnah that is the major book in Islam and all in it trumps anything in the Kora, the Sunnah is where all this weird stuf originates, and shria law.
