Welcome to Sharia Law.

Let me tell you what happens next:

The laws will be introduced, and everything will go bck to normal. Bars, short skirts, discos.

Then slowly, over the next 5 years, the noose will tighten. The Blok M bars will be raided every night, the girls taken away. Then it will be the "normal" bars that get raided. Then the police will raid shopping malls. Girls will be "advised" to wear full Islamic dress to avoid the risk of arrest.

Then one day on the way to work on the the bus, you will be arrested because your skirt is above your knee. you will be dragged off the bus and sat on a truck with 30-40 other girls. Passers by will stare at you. People will spit and abuse you. You will get a HUGE fine, and have to do Islamic re-education.

Then new laws will be introduced. women will not be able to sit in the front of a car. they will not be allowed to go to university. Women will not be allowed out at night.

Iran 1980. Afganistan 1990.

your lives are about to change, and there is nothing you can do to stop it....

Today’s Sydney Morning Herald carries a story about Lillis Lindawati, a 36 year old married woman who was arrested whilst she was waiting for a bus at Tangerang.

Her crime? She was wearing make-up. Her handbag was opened in court, and lipstick produced as evidence that she was a prostitute. The Judge found her guilty because she “could not prove that she was NOT a prostitute”. He added “If she is a housewife why does she put on such make-up?”

The article is on page 21 of today’s news section.

This is exactly what I predicted, and it isn’t even law yet.

I tell you what girls. We will throw all of the bigoted Islamic assholes out of Australia. Any girl in a headscarf, anyone with a beard, anyone who goes to a Mosque, we will piss off back home to the third world shithole that they came from.

And any girl who wants to wear makeup, can come to Australia.

Todays Jakarta Post

Plain-Jane camouflage keeps prostitutes on street, despite crackdown

Multa Fidrus, The Jakarta Post, Tangerang

Referred to as the world's oldest profession, some argue that prostitution will only stop when sex does.

The Tangerang municipal council strongly disagrees. It endorsed a bylaw on prostitution three months ago to shut down the sex industry.
For a time, streets like Jl. Otista, Jl. Gatot Subroto and Jl. Merdeka, which are habitually frequented by sex workers, were much quieter.
Predictably, the women returned, but they have become ghosts of their former selves.

On Wednesday evening, The Jakarta Post observed most of the sex workers had abandoned their skintight jeans, strapless tops and bright slashes of eye shadow. The idea is to pass unnoticed by public order officers.

'Surya', 25, and many other women were rounded up last month by pubic order officers for soliciting and fined Rp 500,000 (about US$53).

When the Post stopped to talk to her on Jl. Merdeka, Surya said the women working the street were aware there was a bylaw but had not seen a copy of it.

Like most sex workers, Suryanti is in it for the money. She knows the nightly patrols by public order officers will not stop.

"No law will stop me from doing what I do. So long as I have money, I can always pay the fine. My fate rests in God's hands,
"I can only earn money like this, what other options are open to me?" she said.

Following her arrest, the quick-witted Suryanti abruptly modified her look. Now she wears long, thick dresses and a smear of lipstick.

"I work in places where I can get out fast if I see a patrol car," she said.

The sex workers on Jl. Otista are also trying another tack. They use the fruit sellers scattered along the street as a cover.
"If officers come and the girls see no way out, they'll claim to be the wives of the fruit sellers," said Marwani, a motorcycle taxi driver who operates in the area.

Novi Ariyanti, a 23-year-old sex worker, who usually waits for clients at a bus shelter on Jl. Gatot Subroto in Cimone, has made a more drastic change to her appearance.

She now wears Muslim dress -- covering her neck, ears, hair, chest and body shape -- and a headscarf.

"With my new look, I am earning more money because men these days are more interested in women wearing jilbab (headscarves)," she said.
Novi charges clients between Rp 200,000 and Rp 500,000.

"C'mon honey, for you it's just Rp 150,000, and we'll go to hotel Anggrek, at Rp 75,000 a night it's cheaper than Hotel Merdeka," she said in a final effort to persuade the Post

Raise a new law and someone will find a way around it!

The opening line may sound like this;

"I am in need of a prayer, where can I obtain the service?"

Of course! there's nothing that could stop itu, because of the regulation like anything that was made in the country would'n had changed someone to become better....
Except, Their respective awareness of the individual....
