Remembrance and blood: The Ashura festival in Lebanon

ONE MAN, COVERED IN BLOOD, lay passed out at my feet in Nabatieh, Lebanon. I had just photographed him a moment before, in the midst of hundreds of other bloodied men yelling and marching in the streets. I had heard about the smell of blood, but could never have imagined what a bitter, copper taste it would leave in my mouth until it covered the men and streets in this southern Lebanese city. Three medics came over and revived the man, who promptly awoke and continued down the street, self-flagellating and shouting “Haidar, Haidar, Haidar!”

Ashura is practiced differently around the world, but the main ceremony in every country revolves around men (and sometimes women) striking their chests and chanting, in some cases using sharp objects such as swords, razors, and chains to shed their own blood in sacrifice to Hussein.

Nowhere is the ceremony more intensely visible than Nabatieh, Lebanon, a city tucked in the hillsides of the country’s scenic south. To the uninitiated, the doomsday music, actors on horses, and free-flowing blood feel like a movie-scene massacre.

Saudi Islamist Writer Urges Followers to Molest Women Who Enter The Workforce

Saudi writer Abdulah Mohammad Al Dawood urges followers to sexually molest women for working at public places

He wants people to molest women in public so they will be forced to stay at home to protect their chastity.

Basically women should not be allowed to work and support themselves because a man may look at them and that would be bad for all society and cause the degradation of their culture…

I guess they are afraid that if they don’t protect women by forcing them to stay home they will end up with a society full of creepy people who say things like “Hey everyone! Sexually molest women so they will be forced to stay at home to protect their chastity!” and then a whole bunch of followers will think it makes sense.

So why are we most bestest friends with these guys? Weird…

His campaign against official moves to encourage women to work in mixed gender environments has led some Twitter users to denounce him. Others however applauded him as a fighter against government efforts to westernise and corrupt the country.
