The more sharia is "normed," the more abnormal things are going to get. A British engineer is facing jail after he told colleagues in a meeting, "When will we finish with the damn mosques?" These are the blasphemy laws under the sharia.
And all this asshattery about how modern and advanced Abu Dhabi is. If there is sharia, it is barbaric. But Hollywood is making "Sex and the City" sequels there (how's that clitcut working out for ya, Carrie?) and K-Dash is filming eipsodes over there (she of the Armenian descent -- how's that Armenian genocide working out for ya, Kim?)
Infidels do not belong in Muslim countries.
Daily Mail (hat tip Jack): A British engineer is facing a month in jail after he told colleagues in a meeting, 'When will we finish with the damn mosques?'
The worker, who has not been named, told an appeals court yesterday that he did not mean to insult the Islamic religion.
The British engineer works at the parks and recreation section of Abu Dhabi Municipality, and is appealing against a one-month prison sentence imposed by the Court of Misdemeanours.
The slow completion of a project at a Mosque in Abu Dhabi caused the British engineer to make the statement that has landed him in court and facing jail
He was in charge of a project to create gardens around a mosque, reports The National, an English-language publication based in the capital of the UAE.
The engineer told the court he lost his temper during a meeting because the project was progressing slowly.

He explained to the judge that he did not mean to insult the mosque as a religious place and that he respected Islam and the UAE.Read the rest at the Daily Mail
