Turkish govt to censor hadiths

I blogged elsewhere about a harebrained and counterproductive Turkish scheme to publish a "politically correct" hadith collection that is free of any traditions that violate modern gender sensibilities.

Promoting reform by hacking up sacred texts – Eteraz.org

In a move reminiscent of Thomas Jefferson’s rationalistic rearrangement of the New Testament, the Turkish government is planning to bowlderize hadith collections so as to eliminate traditions deemed misogynistic.

This strikes me as an intellectually indefensible and politically tone-deaf move that is far more likely to undermine the cause of gender reform than inspire much needed debate.

There’s more.

    Are they jews???, and they control all the media industry. Even more, why do you think that the “private” Federal Reserve Bank is still there????, and that you didn`t know the owners of the bank????
    The control the monetary policy-volume, and they earn the interest (6% maybe) of your blood, even they do it to the government, they buy the treasure bonds, and they do it only with paper!!! at 2`5 c per piece!!!
    If the notes are the “treasury note” and not the “Federal Reserve note” the debt of the USA is blow, as Lincoln did, and Kennedy tried.
