Egypt moves to ban online porn, blocking some of the country’s most popular websites

DC

Egyptian Web surfers may soon be stripped of all access to Internet pornography sites.

Egypt’s Prosecutor General ordered the government’s ministries of telecommunications, interior and information to begin enforcing a ban on online porn Wednesday. On the same day, Islamist groups demonstrated in downtown Cairo to demand enforcement of the ban on x-rated Internet material.

The Salafist Al-Nour party and other groups have long pushed a campaign called “Pure Net” which aims to block access to all sexually oriented websites in the Muslim country.

Based on their own interpretation of Islamic law, known as Sharia, some Salafis have  advocated violence against the West and severe limits on individual rights.

That same segment of Egypt’s Muslims has long argued that Internet porn clashes with the values of most Egyptians. But their countrymen’s actual Web surfing habits say otherwise: At least two pornographic websites are among Egypt’s 25 most frequently visited online destinations, according to Alexa, a division of Amazon.com that tracks online traffic patterns globally.

    Yeah, that’s right… Allah command you to respect women and their modesty unless you’re raping, beating, murdering, mutilating or watching them sell their bodies on film for money.

    The same Muslim asses that are banning the sites will also no doubt be excluded from their own dictate… Sort of like our Congress did with Obamacare.

    They can still send each other goat pictures via email. Women are a last resort for the devout worshipers of Mopeace.

    For some reason I’m reminded of Chicago’s gun control laws.

    But hey, if it leads to Sand Monkey-on-Sand Monkey violence, have at it and pass the popcorn.

    I wonder how they found porn sites, I’m guessing they have been looking for them for some kind of personal satisfaction.

    “Based on their own interpretation of Islamic law, known as Sharia, some Salafis have advocated violence against the West and severe limits on individual rights.”

    The insane logic of self justification: the Salafis can interpret Sharia to advocate violence, but if you or I (or Pamela Geller) interpret Sharia as advocating violence then we’re blasphemous hate mongering islamophobes who deserve to be sodomized and beheaded.
