Good muslim women don't wear foreign Make-up!

Ritzy found this great website that would instruct women on how to be good muslim women, and found out to her dismay that apparently part of that is not to buy any good make-up. They're boycotting Revlon, L'Oreal, Estee Lauder, BioTherm, Redken AND Clinique. Damn, on those terms I will never become a good Muslim woman. Well, you can't blame me for not trying. Well, you don't really need make-up if you are wearing burkas now would you ritzy? What are you trying to do, get men all excited with your slutty devilish western make-up? Miss Mabrouk, I sense a stoning in your future. What caught my attention is the nice little poem after the call for boycott. The person who put it up really knows how to represent muslims everywhere, crazy bin ladin-type muslims that is. Moneyshot: Pick up your rifles and set up your tanks, And with our people together we will fight. This war is for our land and isn't a prank, So be ready for war with all your might. This will decide what is our land, And we will prove it with all right. Back and forth, you see bullets and bombs flying, What do you think we fight for? My people are falling and children are dying, We won't stop until we get to the core. Cute poem, no? It even rhymes! This poem is written by one Meenara Khan, a fun woman to have over for dinner as you can see. Not a scary one at all. Here is her e-mail if you want to drop a hello, a condemnation or a super Jihady word of praise to her. After all, she claims to be representing muslim women everywhere, right? Sigh...

SM, the make up you just listed is allegedly owned by hardcore Zionist businesses who actually send aid money to Israel. This means with this money Israel is growing stronger and yes some of its bullets and missiles do kill Palestinians the majority of which are Muslims. That is the story behind boycotting that make up. Fortunately good make up not only produced by these companies? right ? Japan has just as great make up and so do several European countries....So make up can still be worn under those 'burkas' 'ninja' habits or 'tents' or hijab. Boycotting those products those not mean you are a jihadi , it only means you would like to protest and is a very peaceful way of doing it doing don't you think so ? Or do you wish to unleash more ninjas as martyrs ? If Revlon etc... truely support Israel then yes it would hurt them if Muslims and here I mean specifically Gulf Arabs stopped consuming these products. It's the same as boycotting fur by animal rights activists - it did hurt the business did it not ? If ME coutries got their act toghether they could make a peaceful difference by boycotting more than make up ... it is not 'slutty devilish western make up' it is only those companies associated with Israel.

Still your post is fun to read but you must remember but a bit unfair to those Muslim veiled women mush kidda ? after all they ar the ones who consume make up the most because they hide it under their hijab , they don't care about showing it to others. After all SM a woman puts on make up to feel good about herself and that is what should matter ...not the wolf whistles of the passerby ...

clinique do make some nice lipsticks I must admit lol..

Here is why I do not trust that website or anything it says:

Highlander, most (if not all) of those companies are publicly traded, and therefor are owned by whoever buys their stock!

Somebody in my immediate family was a director of R&D at Johnson & Johnson in the early 70s and VP Research & Development at Revlon in the early 80s... and my family is 100% anglo! I never realised those companies were Jewish... but then again, it never occurred to me to look into the theory. I realize this sounds a little flip, but people would get thrown in *jail* in AMerica for organizing boycotts based on the race of a companies owner or the senior management of a publicly traded company. I'm not kidding. Good thing nobody else has to play by America's rules though! I really think the US government should look into seizing whatever assets these boycotting groups have in America though.

I know that website is crazy SM , I was arguing on the principle of boycotting ;) and on the principle of make up being compotable or lack thereof with a hijab ...

programmer_craig , I accept and understand your explanation, a company has nothing to do with race etc...However, if in someone's view this company is directly sponsoring an 'enemy' then yes it would be kind of stupid to line the 'enemy's' pockets only to be get killed in the process ...that is what I meant. It is analogous with the trade embargo on Libya for example , whereby US or other companies that were found to deal with Libya where punished.

You suggested seizing the assets of those boycotting Revlon or Esthe Lauder for example, but what if they are not groups or corporations? what if it is a grass-roots movement?simply ordinary citizens all over the globe ? how can you deal with that ? they have no assets so to speak or do you think the US should ask to freeze their salaries in their own countries if they don't want to buy western make up ?

but don't worry I was in London last week and let me asure you that the John Lewis is a favourite shopping centre for Muslim Arabs , Esthe Lauder , Clinique etc.... are doing fabulously from those black ninja Arab women, they were not interested in boycotting anything at all ;) what for ? that make up is really wonderful and they were wearing literally tons of it .

I was just being sarcastic about the "seizing assets" thing. Sorry :)

"... I sense you're up for a stoning.."
