Would you be surprised if militant Islamists, and the terrorism that they advocate, had something to do with women's boobs?

Asked by josie (23360 points ) April 2nd, 2014

Sayyid Qutb, an Egyptian, was a writer, poet, philosopher etc who was the intellectual leader of the Islamic Brotherhood, and the the guy who inspired the founders and leaders of Al Qaeda.
He had lots of complaints about the West (he visited the US in the late 40s,). He especially had a problem with women.
A quote from Qtub:
…the American girl is well acquainted with her body’s seductive capacity. She knows it lies in the face, and in expressive eyes, and thirsty lips. She knows seductiveness lies in the round breasts, the full buttocks, and in the shapely thighs, sleek legsā€”and she shows all this and does not hide it. [Qtub never married]
Wouldn’t it be something if 9/11, the Fort Hood murders, the Underwear Bomber, etc. had something to do with tits?

My money is on the never ending wars and drone strikes against the Middle-East. But free to pull shit out you ass.

And seriously.. It don’t think you want to travel the path of revealing clothing. Mega-Church!

Sounds like a variation of the “They hate us because we have FREEDOM!!!” poppycock.
Trying to wash all guilt off your hands.

But I don’t see the point.
Drones? Al Qhaeda was organized during the the Soviet Afghan war. No drones then. Only American Stingers that turned the course of the war in favor of Afghanistan.
Mega Church? Guilt?
Here’s your lurve, but help me out please.

I’m usually one to preach the power of the breast, but I think I’ll have to go with religious justifications combined with wars and foreign policy they happen to disagree with.

If guys had tits would the world be more peaceful? I mean hell if I have the option of playing with tits and blowing something up I’m going with tits.

@Adirondackwannabe Words of wisdom right there. :) Another is, condoms cost way less money than nuclear missiles, don’t they?

@Symbeline You’re on to something. Nuclear Missiles would be a great name for a brand of condom. Rub some hot cinnamon or something spicy on them and pow.

Just what the world needs… More men with burning cocks.

The Santa Barbara shootings have an eerily similar theme to this thought.
