Freedomphobes

Posted: 20/03/2013 23:00

They call us "Islamophobes" when we write on our bare breasts: "Sharia is not a constitution". They are ready to kill us when we say we f*ck their morals. Their irrational fear of the truth is a detrimental factor for our survival as free women.

We are at war... A war between two eras. A war between a mentality that belongs to Middle Ages and a 21st Century mentality. A war between civilization and backwardness, between freedom and oppression, war between democracy and dictatorship.

We are at war between those who treat a woman like a dog and those who scream "we are women, we are human beings". A war between those who live with the supernatural and those who live with their mind.

I don't believe in the supernatural. And my beliefs grow stronger when I see blood spilled by those who believe in it.

Radical Tunisian Islamists represented by Imam Adel Almi called for death penalty by stoning for young Tunisian girl, who took a naked picture of herself and posted it on Facebook to support the FEMEN movement. On 26 February a Tunisian woman, Amina Tyler, sent an email to FEMEN with attached photo of herself with bare breasts. On her chest, she wrote: "F*ck your morals!".

The picture was posted on fan pages of FEMEN. Then Amina has created a FEMEN Tunisia fan page to support the movement from her country. Today, the information about death threats to Amina from Islamists was spread by mass media, the call for death penalty was made by a Tunisian political figure and leader of the Association centrist awareness and reform, Adel Almi.

He said that "these actions must be stopped to prevent possible disasters" while adding that Amina "must be flogged 100 times knowing that, given the extent of her sin, the girl deserves to be stoned to death".

After getting information about the threats, we tried to get in touch with the Tunisian supporter by a phone, which was switched off.

I denounce the disastrous Islamization of the Arab Spring and the full devaluation of all revolutionary achievements. Bearded monsters will never impede brave acts for freedom made by women.

This war, we did not cause it. But now, we need to replicate.

Yes, this is our war. We cannot compromise. We cannot give up. We must recognize the enemies and deter them at every pass.

We will not stifle our language. We will use the appropriate vocabulary to call things by their rightful name.

I'm not Islamophobic. I'm religiophobic. I wIll fight them until the end, until the end of obscurantism, oppression, violence and blood. F*ck you all, freedomphobes! You can not stop womens fight for freedom.

We already know the taste of freedom and will never forget it.

We are going on!
