Tonight at a political party hither inwards Bali nosotros met a immature together with real intense French/Algerian guy, who was such a conservative Islamist that he scared both me together with this local immature lady I was hanging out with.
For example, he talked almost Saudi-Arabia every bit the perfect ground (even though I told him the leadership do porn, drugs together with prostitutes), together with didn't receive got whatever reservations against chopping hands off for theft, because it has a strong preventive effect.
Also he said that women shouldn't live on allowed to drive, because it gives them the liberty to "do things they shouldn't do". And he gave some genuinely weird examples, for instance that women shouldn't agree gas pumps, because they facial expression similar penises going into a vagina.
He was also proverb that women should live on covered up, because he shouldn't receive got to walk around together with acquire sexually aroused when looking at their torso parts. And that it was form of difficult for him to move to the beach hither inwards Bali, because he got thus tempted past times the girls inwards bikini. And that the westward has been corrupted to think that it's normal for women to undress inwards public.
About other religions he said that he doesn't give whatever validity to whatever of them, because none of them are serious enough. He said that Islam is the alone faith that explicitly encourages people to conk for something they are thus passionate almost - the honey for God - together with that's why he tin dismiss alone abide by Islam.
The other people at that topographic point told us that he had been proverb a lot of weird together with sexual materials to them during the evening, together with he gave a unusual impression to most people there.

- HIM: Oh, but inwards our civilization nosotros receive got songs similar that!
And together with thus he started singing some form of militant vocal inwards Arabic, proverb the words meant something similar "die for Allah" or something.
I seriously think this is a guy who could move tearing or a terrorist given the correct circumstances. I genuinely promise at that topographic point aren't many immature people similar him inwards Europe, together with I'm wondering whether I should telephone telephone the police line inwards French Republic together with give them his name.
