Quit Calling Muslims Camel F***ers, Ayatollah Khomeini Said that They Like Sheep and Little Girls

Mark Steyn wrote a wonderful review of The Force of Reason by oft-sued Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci, the Steyn piece is called Celebrate tolerance, or you’re dead. The review contains this eye-opener:

Signora Fallaci then moves on to the livelier examples of contemporary Islam -- for example, Ayatollah Khomeini's “Blue Book" and its helpful advice on romantic matters: "If a man marries a minor who has reached the age of nine and if during the defloration he immediately breaks the hymen, he cannot enjoy her any longer." I'll say. I know it always ruins my evening. Also: "A man who has had sexual relations with an animal, such as a sheep, may not eat its meat. He would commit sin." Indeed. A quiet cigarette afterwards as you listen to your favourite Johnny Mathis LP and then a promise to call her next week and swing by the pasture is by far the best way. It may also be a sin to roast your nine-year-old wife, but the Ayatollah's not clear on that.

If this is true, and I do not know enough about Mr. Khomeini’s work to state one way or another, this would be just ANOTHER disgraceful, backward aspect of Islam that we as a nation want to avoid at all costs. If true the opinions of the Grand Ayatollah should be shoved into the faces of those who wish to promote Islamic law (Sharia) in ANY community of the United States. After all, he was a major “thinker” on the Islamic scene for the last twenty-plus years of his life. Many Americans state that Republicans want to “drag us back to the ‘50s”, while ignoring the fact that we have a real live enemy (not a boogey man) that wants to drag us back to the middle ages, literally. An additional amusement with that line about the ‘50s is that it is usually spoken by members of a now stultified and reactionary Democratic Party.
