By Yvonne Ridley (Famous Lady Journalist best known for her capture by the Taliban and accepted Islam after release on year 2001)

Political opportunist Nicolas Sarkozy (French President) forgot three fundamental lessons when he decided to denounce the burka.

The first one is that men should stay well clear of becoming involved in expressing opinions on women’s clothes, unless of course you happen to be called Lacroix, Gaultier, Lagerfeld or Ghesquiere.

This was a lesson learned the hard way by former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw who was pilloried when he questioned the nikab after asking a female constituent to lift her veil so he could see her face.

Could you imagine him making the same request of any female members of the Saudi royal household during one of his galloping missions to the Middle East?

Foolishly Scotsmen Gordon Brown and John Reid, hailing from a country where men wear pleated skirts and paint their faces blue, then waded in with the grace of a couple of dancing bears.

Even the Bishop of Rochester - a man who wears a pointy hat and a purple dress - chipped in his dislike of the nikab, full face veil or burka.

Of course they were all despatched very quickly by Muslim women in Britain who proved themselves to be anything but oppressed, subjugated creatures. And just to show there's real solidarity across women of faith and no faith, quite a few western feminists expressed their disdain at Straw and co while standing shoulder to shoulder with their Muslim sisters.

The second lesson is try and be sincere if you are taking up a cause. Sarkozy feigned his utmost respect for women by saying he felt the burka represented the unacceptable symbol of women's enslavement - today I can unveil him to be a purveyor of weasel words.

If he really cared about the subjugation of women he would seriously tackle the appalling levels of domestic violence French women suffer at the hands of French men - two million are victims of bullying, violent partners ... a staggering 400 are murdered by their spouse.

So how many women in France actually wear the burka? The answer is a very tiny minority - so much so that when the BBC'’s Emma Jane Kirby went to interview a burka-wearing woman in Paris she couldn’t find a single one!

The former BBC’'s Europe correspondent went to the Muslim quarter in the capital but all she could find were lots of women of North African origin wearing hijabs. She was given blank expressions and shrugs of the shoulder when she asked if any of them knew women who wore burkas - and the local Islamic dress shops didn’t stock any.

So why would Sarkozy launch such an onslaught on the burka, describing Muslim women who wear it as “prisoners behind a grille, cut off from social life, deprived of their identity"?

As pointed out by one Islamic observer: '“The irony is that many Muslim women would say the current headscarf ban in France has created exactly this situation for them”'.

Well the real reason had nothing to do with the burka and everything to do with Sarkozy putting pressure on the Liberal Left, throwing a few cheap shots at the expense of Muslim women while trying to pick up a few votes at their expense as well.

Sarkozy, like many male politicians, is pretty gutless so in a pathetic attempt to disguise his real motivations in wanting to pick up votes, he invents a proposed ban of the burka as a defence of women's rights. This, he knows will go down well with the French electorate who see veiled women as a threat to their liberal self esteem.

Using women to win votes is a common political ploy - I remember when Tony Blair and George W Bush claimed their invasion in Afghanistan was in defence of women’s rights and designed to liberate Afghan women.

Those two even used and pushed their own doting wives to stand in front of the world's media to justify their husband's invasion of the country - on a recent visit I can tell you there are few career women emerging from the rubble of Kabul.

So next time a politician tries to drive through any form of controversial measure or make a spectacular announcement, please don’t fall for the mealy-mouthed excuse that they're doing it for the liberation of women and/or ethnic minority groups.

Reading the weekend newspaper opinion pages and columnists, I was amazed at how many supposedly intelligent feminists fell for the Sarkozy bull. But they did - hook, line and sinker exhibiting an astonishing shallowness in their writing.

I genuinely have a feeling Sarkozy is one of these weak-kneed, lily-livered men who trembles at the thought of empowered women. And I think the sight of a woman in a burka makes him feel inferior.

Could it be that because his wife - as beautiful as she is - has bared all for every man on the planet to ogle, that the very sight of a burka-clad female makes him feel insecure in his own relationship?

As any European schoolboy can testify from the pictures Blu-tacked to his ceiling, to the crumpled, sticky torn out, somewhat crusty pages of last year's GQ hidden under their bed, France's First Lady is the stuff of male fantasies.

Consider this, if a woman chooses to be veiled rather than show her face to a man, is she doing so to protect her husband’s feelings, in which case she could be seen as being compliant and servile, or - more importantly - is she doing so to protect her own face from the violation of a man's eyes?

Could it be that some of these women, when peering out of their burkas at the French leader, feel so special that they do not want the likes of him staring at all of their features?

And this, I believe, is what disturbs Sarkozy because if burka-clad women don’t want to be peered or leered at by men like him then this would be seen not as a show of subjugation but a sense of female superiority.

After all Mrs Sarkozy can be viewed in all her naked glory by anyone who can access the internet or a copy of last year’s GQ.

And then someone paid $91,000 for a naked portrait at a Christie’s auction in New York.

On top of that it appears someone stole hundreds of “highly intimate” images of France’s First Lady and an ex-lover a couple of months ago.

A fascinating stuff, but let’s not dwell too long on this subject, I've yet to raise the third lesson Sarkozy needs to learn and that is: People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

A quick scratch beneath the thin veneer of public office reveals the French leader to be a sauteur.*

And the source of this information is none other than the long-suffering Cecilia Sarkozy, who had to put up with 18 years of being married to a man with behavioural problems including being mean, cold and a serial womaniser.

In the book Cecilia, published by Flammarion in January 2008, she said of her husband: "He has a ridiculous side. He is undignified. Nicolas doesn't come over like a president. He has a real behaviour problem ... He needs someone to point it out to him. I did it for 18 years and I can't do it anymore. I am the last person who can do it."

These, and other, extracts incensed Sarkozy and his estranged wife's lawyers sought an injunction to prevent publication on the grounds that the book had invaded the former first lady's privacy – not that it was inaccurate. The former French first lady Cécilia Sarkozy, divorced in October 2007, is quoted as criticising her ex-husband's morals, his parenting skills and his fitness to be president.

That must have been extremely crushing and hurtful for France’s little emperor’. But no more hurtful than attacking and scapegoating harmless Muslim women. I wonder if he feels as though they are judging him from behind their veils.

Well we're all judging France's ‘Little Emperor’ now and the verdict isn’t a good one.

Pride Day or Shame Day?


GENOCIDE is being committed in the name of “alternative lifestyles.”

Homosexuals and lesbians, by denying their true, physical sexuality, are denying the reproduction of God’s most precious and the best creatures, the human beings. Hundreds of civil rights groups, environmental groups, and right-to-life groups in Canada and in the USA are generally quick to react to any act that directly or indirectly leads to genocide or other violation of basic human rights. When it comes to the “gay lifestyle,” however, no one objects to the fact that homosexuality and lesbianism are directly leading to the extinction of the human race.

It is beyond doubt that the most valuable specie of the earth is the human being. Without human life on this earth, there is no meaning to creation, and the current environment will cease to exist. Same-sex relationships cut the roots of the human race and seriously endanger the world environmental health and welfare. If cutting the roots of trees can change the climate, then cutting the roots of human beings is a deathblow to the planet. North American Caucasians are moving towards extinction. Current data and research indicates that, if colored immigrants will not move in large numbers into the several states of Canada, populations cannot sustain. Different states are offering different incentives to lure the immigrants. If they will not respond in the immediate future, the daily affairs of the civic life will be badly affected. The majority of the white population is in a higher age bracket. There are more pets than children in their homes. If the situation persists, the white race will become “rare bird” in next 50 years. Several organizations are committed to saving wildlife, but only a few, poorly funded organizations are trying to save human life by curbing the “gay lifestyle.”

White supremacists prefer to promote hatred toward and destruction of people of color instead of discouraging the sickness of gayism in their own societies. Christian priests, ministers, and other church leaders now embrace homosexuality, and their churches are still full of their devotees, and their members never decrease. It shows the apathy and lack of concern of the religious groups of this country. There is even a “Gay Bible,” from which has been deleted any mention of homosexuality as a sin. Both the Jewish Bible and the New Testament, however, categorically condemned the act and suggests the death penalty for active homosexuals.

JEWISH BIBLE (OLD TESTAMENT): You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is abomination. (Leviticus 18:22)

If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13)

NEW TESTAMENT: "But from the beginning of the creation, God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, ‘And the two shall become one flesh'; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. "Therefore what God has joined together let not man separate." (Mark 10:6-9)

Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; Being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; Who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Romans 1:27-32)

The number of homosexuals and lesbians are no higher in Canada and USA than in any other community; however, North American gays are the most organized. They have become so powerful that all the political and social leadership has completely surrendered to them. Starting legislation from a few states in Canada, the federal law of Canada now allows same sex marriage. Six states of USA has approved legislation for same sex-marriage. These legislations will definitely broaden this peril.

Canada has crossed all the limits. Any remark against this “sickness” would be considered political death of any politician. No one dares to speak out against this disease, against this epidemic, against this anti-human, anti-birth, anti-environment approach of same-sex fanatics. Liberals and NDP are the promoters and activists of promoting the “gay lifestyle” and “gay pride” in Canada, and conservatives have submitted to them.

It is the first time in the history of mankind that sick people, instead of asking for treatment from doctors, are claiming a right to remain the sick. They demand the right to remain sick and practice their sickness their entire lives. The first mention of homosexuality in the Bible and Qur’an is in the story of Lut (Lot) (peace upon him), who was a messenger of God.

“And we sent Lut as a Messenger: Remember that he said to his people, "Have you become so shameless that you commit such indecent acts as no one committed before you in the world? You gratify your lust with men instead of women: indeed you are a people who are transgressors of all limits!" (Al Quran: 7: 80-81)

Before the nation of Lut (peace upon him) the act of homosexuality did not exist, and that is another proof that it is not natural. In the case of Lut’s nation, homosexuality was willful decadence in an act of worshiping one’s own desires and lusts. Lust and desire are the idols of homosexuals, and the breaking of idols is an Abrahamic tradition of Muslims, Jews, and Christians. The Abrahamic religion respect civil rights and freedoms of all people, including the right of future generations to be conceived and born. The gay lifestyle denies future generations the right to life!

The worshipers of lust celebrate an annual Pride Day in Canada and USA, which, this year, was on Sunday, June 28. We Muslims, Christians, and Jews, who believe in One God, procreation, family, and marriage, must unite to fight against this menace of the society. In doing so, we must also offer spiritual guidance and therapeutic health care to those lost in the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism.

I propose that those of us true to God’s Word celebrate Decency Day every year on Gay pride’s shame day.
