Qatar is in a bind for the FIFA World Cup. Extensive headlines continue to show Qatar’s Islamic supremacist intolerance and the potential danger for unfaithful attendees, such as women and gay men, who may choose not to conform to the nation’s Sharia standards of dress and behavior, and could face jail time. Then there’s the disturbing requirement that attendees download spyware onto their mobile phones. Add to all that the lawsuit by five Australian women who were stripped naked and humiliated at gunpoint in an airport search. Kosher foods and Jewish prayers are also prohibited in the games. Beer and other alcoholic beverages are also not allowed.
It’s starting to backfire on Qatar, a country that should never have been chosen to host the games in the first place, as these games usually feature cheating games and fun.
In normative Islam, there is no fun. Now al Qaeda has issued a warning to Muslims to boycott the event, avoiding direct threats. While Qatar intimidates infidels in an effort to maintain its Islamic character during the games, it fails to satisfy Muslims who think the country shouldn’t be hosting the games in the first place, but for a reason completely opposite to that of the Muslims. unfaithful who expect Qatar to be accommodating to all visitors as no one forced the country to bid for international games.
It is becoming difficult for Qatar: it is not Muslim enough for Al Qaeda and the like, but at the same time it is too intolerant of infidels.
World Cup organizers, in response to criticism of Qatar’s human rights record, including LGBT rights and social restrictions, have said that everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or background, is welcome during the event.
Really? Welcome, as long as you’re gay, female, Jewish, and anyone who wants a Sharia-compliant beer. That’s not cozy. The games have become what amounts to a huge dhimmi training session for the attendees.
Meanwhile, the intelligence chief of the Israel Defense Forces has now warned that Iran could attack the World Cup in Qatar.
