And now, Islamic Swimwear...

You'd think they'd only be in black....
The beaches of Turkey, crowded with women in bikinis or sunbathing topless, are witnessing a new phenomenon: neck-to-ankle swimwear worn by increasingly confident Muslim women.

The Islamic swimwear consists of a full-body suit and a hood that is pulled over a tight bonnet. The development is worrying the country's secularists and there have been reports of lifeguards ordering women off beaches for wearing the suits.

Religiously conservative women have traditionally shunned the beaches. If they did visit, they were unable to swim as they were unwilling to bare their flesh in public.

But more than 25,000 of the Islamic swimsuits have been sold in the past year and their leading maker, Hasema, is struggling to cope with demand. Hayrunnisa Gul, the wife of the foreign minister, is among its customers.

The swimsuits come in a range of colours and patterns and the latest versions let the sun through, allowing the wearer to obtain a tan.

Islam - it's all about the sex.

It used to be about the drugs too, back in the '80s it was reported that 'martyrs' got the horny virgins AND all the hash they could smoke, but now they've gone all puritanical about the dope smoking thing and cut it out.

Sad, today's martyrs should hold out for a better deal when they discuss these end-of-life issues with their fanatic leaders.

Bunch of idiot savages.

You guys are stupid. Who gives a shit what people wear? Is it affecting you in any way? How come we don't make fun of nuns and they way they dress? What about other cultures and their clothes?

Whoever told you Islam was about the sex, or drugs is screwed in the head. Get your facts straight before you attack people. Muslim people have a religion the same way you do and they worship God, might not be the same way you do, but every religion has their own way of worshiping God. I don't see anyone criticizing other religions for their beliefs. I think you are the only ignorant idiots here!
