Islamic Morality Crackdown

The lamestream media told you:

"KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Fifty-two unmarried Muslim couples face charges of sexual misconduct and possible jail terms after being caught alone in hotel rooms by Islamic Morality Police during a New Year's Day crackdown," according to an unbylined article from the Associated Press.

"The detained, mostly students and young factory workers, are expected to be charged with "khalwat," or "close proximity," which under Malaysia's Islamic Shariah law is described as couples not married to each other being alone together in a private place."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Fortunately, unmarried close proximity in a private place for Muslims only carries a two-year prison sentence and a fine. That must be why feminist groups nationwide have been deathly silent about the pre-dawn raids. Information birdogged from nightclubs in America suggests the hottest new pickup line is now, "Hey darling, let's khalwat."
