Egyptian women must not sit as judges because it would be against Islamic law or Shariah as they would have to spend time alone with men, a male Egyptian judge was quoted as saying yesterday. A woman judge would “contradict Article Two of the constitution” which states that the principal source of legislation is Shariah, judges’ syndicate president Yahia Ragheb Daqruri was quoted as saying.
I’m a little confused. Is this the 21st century? Or the 12th?
“When a woman works as a judge, her work requires her to be alone in a room with two or more male judges to deliberate… Is this appropriate? “Citizens and others present (in court) will be surprised by the presence of a woman judge. A woman judge will also become pregnant at some point, and that will certainly have an impact on the judiciary’s prestige and on judges’ public image,” he said, without elaborating.
Does this guy think he just popped out of thin air? I guess he isn’t aware, without women…THERE WOULD BE NO MEN! Women are just as capable of learning, thinking, passing judgement on the guilt or innocence of anyone, male or female!
“Giving birth can also have an impact on the cases she is dealing with being dealt with correctly,” he said, again without elaborating.
Of course, “without elaborating”! I doubt if he’s actually aware he’s coming across as a complete and utter moron!
On January 27, the Akhbar Al-Yom daily carried a fatwa or edict by chief mufti Sheikh Ali Gomaa saying that Islam forbids women from becoming heads of state because it would require them to lead prayer — something only a man can do. But he later said that Islam does not bar women from becoming heads of state, insisting that he had been referring to “the traditional role of Caliph as both secular head of state and imam of the Muslims,” that was abolished with the fall of the Ottoman empire in 1924.
Again….moron! Yet these are the types that the left wants us to appease. I don’t bloody well think so!
