Citing Religious Beliefs, Muslim Gitmo Inmates Object To Female Guards

A clash between Muslim inmates and the female soldiers assigned to guard them has led to a standoff at the lockup in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

A judge has blocked female guards from shackling and escorting five Muslim men being tried for plotting the Sept. 11 attacks. Soldiers, in turn, have filed Equal Opportunity complaints against the judge.

Walter Ruiz is the lawyer for one of the Guantanamo detainees who object to being escorted by female guards.

During the first six years he represented him, Ruiz says, only male guards had touched his client — that is, until last fall, when female members of a National Guard unit became part of the team that shackled him.

Ruiz says his client refuses to leave his cell if women are on the escort team because Muslim men can only touch women they’re related to…

    Love it! The inmates running the asylum. We are now truly through the Looking Glass.

    Yeah, right. They’re all pious on someone else’s dime.

  • Allan

    So I guess all those muslim women being raped are related to their rapers?

    • Mal

      Excellent point, Allan.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Usually, yes. It’s the islamic way, you silly goose!

    • moraywatson

      The short term marriages of convenience serve just that purpose.

    Gee, I wonder who the feminists will side with.

    • Frau Katze

      Hard to call that one.

        Probably depends on where the GITMO detainees stand on transgendered “women”.

        Hey! What a great idea! Send in the Obama Armed Forces Tranny Team of Ugmo Chicks. Explain to the detainees that the new guards only LOOK like women, but were born men and still are biological makes. Voila! Problem solved. 😉

    I think Gitmo should conduct a reverse hunger strike.
    Stop feeding the detainees until the guard’s demands are met.
    It will get resolved one way or another.

    A rubber meets the road moment.

    Fuck you with a red hot pipe wrench.

    • Justin St.Denis

      That is a searing comment!

  • Frances

    He’s not touching her, she’s touching him. So where’s the prohibition?

    • Justin St.Denis

      I was gonna say…

  • Martin B

    “Ruiz says his client refuses to leave his cell if women are on the escort team”

    Fine. Leave him in his cell till he’s dead.

    • Minicapt

      Install his lawyer for company.


    • Justin St.Denis

      Remember to have a female guard poke him with a stick periodically to see whether he responds or not. Rotting jihadis smell bad in the Cuban heat.

  • dukestreet

    If he wishes to remain in his cell, that’s fine with me.

  • Alain

    I had a good laugh upon reading this, since it is one form of fascism versus another form of fascism. Here it Muslim fascists are fighting the affirmative action fascists, so I await the outcome. I have no time for either side in this case.

  • Kathy Nelson

    What, islamic boys can only touch females they are related to? Thanks for the affirmation of islamic inbreeding. Swine.
