That is unless you are a perceptive person and subscribe to IST….
There are always stories and reports out there that never make it into the news cycle for whatever reason…..and when I find them I try to share with my readers for I believe they deserve to know everything I know….
These stories have no value other than information……they are FYI for my loyal readers…..
First, there is one about a Islamic issue…….
You see Islam is a religion based on the teachings of Abraham (Islam, Christianity and Judaism) and like most within that tradition they are male-centric….meaning the men pretty much control the religion…..but one brave soul in Denmark has started a female mosque……
Scandinavia’s first women-led mosque, which prohibits polygamy and is home to female imams, officially opened its doors in Denmark in March, but the place of worship is not odd or unique, says its founder Sherin Khankan.
ISIS has outlawed the burka at their security centers in a northern Iraqi city, despite previously brutally enforcing a law requiring them to be worn.
The terror group have banned women entering the buildings in Mosul while wearing the full-face covering after a number of commanders were killed by veiled women.
Previously women in Syria and Iraq have been beaten or even killed by ISIS’s ‘morality police’ for not wearing a veil to conceal their body and eyes.
Amazing just how unnecessary these things are when it is their butts on the line….
Finally, an occurrence in Iran should make some Americans happy as Hell…..
The pistachio farmers in California. Since 1979 these trees have made some of the people in California very rich…..BTW, Iran use to have a monopoly on pistachios until recently when the trees that were smuggled out of Iran in 1979 started bearing nuts…..but now there is a drought in Iran that is effecting the pistachio trees……
Pistachios are Iran’s biggest export after crude oil, with 250,000 tonnes of the nut produced last year — a figure only recently topped by the United States.
In Kerman province in southern Iran, cities have grown rich from pistachios, but time is running out for the industry as unconstrained farming and climate change take a devastating toll.
Near the city of Sirjan, a long line of enormous sinkholes like bomb craters mark the points where an underground aquifer was pumped completely dry, and the ground simply collapsed.
America could have the best pistachios if only they would learn how to process the nut before market…..until then the ones out of Iran are still the best….
That is it for today and I want to begin my relaxation and the weekend….go out and have some fun……we will be back in style Monday.
