Headscarf may bar Saudi woman from Olympics judo competition

By the CNN Wire Staff

London (CNN) - One of the two women on Saudi Arabia's Olympic team may be pulled from the competition because of the kingdom's insistence that she wear a headscarf in her judo matches.

Saudi and international Olympic officials met late into the night with International Judo Federation representatives to resolve the case of Wojdan Shaherkani, the Saudi Olympic committee said Monday.

The meeting failed to break the deadlock that threatens to keep the kingdom's only female judo competitor from participating Friday, Saudi National Olympic Committee representative Razen Baker said.

      You are free to play by the rules, or you are free to go back tour barbaric country without competing.

      get it?

    This is my experience... Thank you.

    MY personal testimony.
    A thought to consider without an ego response

    I Accepted Jesus christ as my lord and saviour. You never know how soon is too late. Transcend the worldly illusion of enslavement.
    The world denounces truth....

    Accepting Jesus Christ (for me) resulted in something like seeng a new colour. You will see it .....but will not be able to clearly explain it to anyone else..... Its meant to be that way to transend any selfism within you.

    Also... much the world arranges "surrounding dark matter into something to be debated" in such a way that protects/inflates the ego.

    The key is be present and transcend our own desire to physically see evidence. We don't know anyways by defending our own perception of dark matter.

    Currently.... most of us are constructing our own path that suits our sin lifestyle. Were all sinners. Knowing that we are is often an issue. But both christians and non are sinners. Even once we are saved by christs merciful grace we will still experience adversity to mold us to adhering to the truth.
    We will slip... But not fall of the ship ...carrying us onward to perfection in christs grace.

    We don't like to Let go and let god. We want control to some degree. This is what Jesus asks us to do. "Follow me".
    It's the hardest thing to do... but is done by letting the truth of scripture lead you (redemptive revelation)... as I said .

    Try reading corinthians and see if it makes sense to you. Try it without a pre conceived notion of it being a fairy tale.
    See the truth...
    do we do what it says in todays society... is it relevant... so many have not recently read and only hinge their philosophy on what they have heard from some other person...which may have been full of arogance pride or vanity..

    Look closely at the economy ponzi, look at how society idolizes Lust , greed , envy, sloth, pride of life, desire for knowledge, desire for power, desire for revencge,gluttony with food etc .

    Trancsend the temporal world.

    Just think if you can find any truth you can take with you ....in any of these things. When you die your riches go to someone who will spend away your life..... You will be forgotten.... history will repeat iteslf.... the greatest minds knowledge fade or are eventually plagerzed..... your good deeds will be forgotten and only give you a fleeting temporary reward . your learned teachings are forgotten or mutated..... your gold is transfered back to the rullers that rule you through deception. Your grave will grow over . This is truth .

    Trancsend your egoism and free yourself from this dominion of satan. Understand you are a sinner and part of the collective problem of this worldly matrix... Repent.... Repent means knowing (to change) The Holy spirit (within) will convict you beyond what you think you can do by yourself. Grace is given to those who renounce the world. That are" in" the world but not "of " the world.

    Evidence follows faith. Faith does not follow evidence..... Faith ....above reason in Jesus Christ.

    Faith comes by Reading or Hearing the word of god from the bible . Ask Jesus in faith for dicernment and start reading the new testament... You will be shocked when you lay down your preconceived notions and ....see and hear truth ... see how christ sets an example ... feel the truth....

    Read Ecclesiastes. Read romans or corinthians.

    You cant trancend your own egoism by adapting a world philosophy to suit your needs. Seek the truth in Christ.

    Sell all your cleverness and purchase true bewilderment. You don't get what you want ....you get what you are by faith above reason in christ.

    I promise this has been the truth for me. In Jesus christ .

    Think of what you really have to lose. ...your ego?

    Break the Matrix of illusion that holds your senses captive.

    once you do . you too will have the wisdom of God that comes only through the Holy Spirit. Saved By grace through Faith. Just like seeing a new colour.... can't explain it to a transient caught in the matrix of worldly deception.
    You will also see how the world suppresses this information and distorts it

    You're all smart people . I tell the truth. Its hard to think out of the box when earthly thinking is the box.
    I'ts a personal free experience you can do it free anytime . Don't wait till you are about to die.. START PUTTING YOUR TREASURES WHERE THEY REALLY MATTER >
    Its awsome and It's just between you and Jesus

    my testimony

    Romans 10:9

    "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved

  4. Reality

    The easy solution:

    From the studies of Armstrong, Rushdie, Hirsi Ali, Richardson and Bayhaqi----–

    The Five Steps To Deprogram 1400 Years of Islamic Myths:

    ( –The Steps take less than two minutes to finish- simply amazing, two minutes to bring peace and rationality to over one billion lost souls- Priceless!!!)

    Are you ready?

    Using "The 77 Branches of Islamic "faith" a collection compiled by Imam Bayhaqi as a starting point. In it, he explains the essential virtues that reflect true "faith" (iman) through related Qur’anic verses and Prophetic sayings." i.e. a nice summary of the Koran and Islamic beliefs.

    The First Five of the 77 Branches:

    "1. Belief in Allah"

    aka as God, Yahweh, Zeus, Jehovah, Mother Nature, etc. should be added to your self-cleansing neurons.

    "2. To believe that everything other than Allah was non-existent. Thereafter, Allah Most High created these things and subsequently they came into existence."

    Evolution and the Big Bang or the "Gi-b G-nab" (when the universe starts to recycle) are more plausible and the "akas" for Allah should be included if you continue to be a "crea-tionist".

    "3. To believe in the existence of angels."

    A major item for neuron cleansing. Angels/de-vils are the mythical creations of ancient civilizations, e.g. Hitt-ites, to explain/define natural events, contacts with their gods, big birds, sudden winds, protectors during the dark nights, etc. No "pretty/ug-ly wingy thingies" ever visited or talked to Mohammed, Jesus, Mary or Joseph or Joe Smith. Today we would classify angels as f–airies and "tin–ker be-lls". Modern de-vils are classified as the de-mons of the de-mented.

    "4. To believe that all the heavenly books that were sent to the different prophets are true. However, apart from the Quran, all other books are not valid anymore."

    Another major item to delete. There are no books written in the spirit state of Heaven (if there is one) just as there are no angels to write/publish/distribute them. The Koran, OT, NT etc. are simply books written by humans for humans.

    Prophets were invented by ancient scribes typically to keep the un-educated masses in line. Today we call them for-tune tellers.

    Prophecies are also invali-dated by the natural/God/Allah gifts of Free Will and Future.

    "5. To believe that all the prophets are true. However, we are commanded to follow the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings
    be upon him) alone."

    Mohammed spent thirty days "fasting" (the Ramadan legend) in a hot cave before his first contact with Allah aka God etc. via a "pretty wingy thingy". Common sense demands a neuron deletion of #5. #5 is also the major source of Islamic vi-olence i.e. turning Mohammed's "fast, hunger-driven" hallu-cinations into horrible reality for unbelievers.

    Walk these Five Steps and we guarantee a complete recovery from your Islamic ways!!!!

    Unfortunately, there are not many Muslim commentators/readers on this blog so the "two-minute" cure is not getting to those who need it. If you have a Muslim friend, send him a copy and help save the world.

    Analogous steps are available at your request for deprogramming the myths of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Paganism..

    Atheism is for the weak-minded who don't act logical but whine and cry when they don't get their way.

      @Ransom,
      "Atheism is for the weak-minded who don't act logical but whine and cry when they don't get their way."
      Uh huh, right. Because religion has never come up with the idea of God(s) causing misfortune or weather patterns on earth... ie. to simple minded folk to explain and reason away what for them was the unexplainable. However, I also posit that the premise behind atheism a tad myopic. I reference Clarke's first law to illustrate my point: When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong. With this in mind, I consider it much more logical to consider myself an agnostic, which some consider a cop out. but I, however do not pretend to know the secrets of the universe, nor will you ever hear me lay claim to such knowledge. But to put my faith in a collection of illogical fairy tales and myths is just something I cannot bring myself to do. Particularly when the three main branches of religion cannot even agree on a single interpretation of their respective holy texts (see multiple sects/denominations), not to mention the select moral relativism that is permissible while others must never be challenged.

      Ransom..know you now that is not true..i think you have read some of the reples and it scares you to know the truth of life. You remain in awe of god with out any evidence.

    She and her coach knew the requirements before getting there. She complies or she goes home. Muslims can join modern times or they can remain in their 3rd world country frame of mind.

      Apparently, it's the IOC that wants her there. She has never competed at all, let alone internationally,from what I've read.

      It's a no brainer. A non-issue. Maybe we should have the Olympic Committee consider the Naked Olympics! That would put a stop to all this nonsense.

      @Voice – they'd still find something else to freak out about. "That guy is circumsized! He's more aerodynamic and has an advantage!!"

      @sam

      Men's wrestling would be a bit disturbing, swimming would be cool, any one on one compet*tion would be kind of creepy and then the Winter Olympics brings a whole other dynamic. I wouldn't mind the women events one bit however.

      @Voice – but oh, no. The gymnastics events. Please no.

      She is from Saudi, what's is she doing outside of her husbands house? That property must have gotten permission from at least ten men to leave the country....sad but true!

      @Bootyfunk,

      You say that as if some people even have that option without facing and immediate threat of bodily harm, up to and including death (which I believe may still be permissible in some countries as it pertains to forsaking one's religion) not to mention the ostracism one would undoubtedly face from family and friends. Only lately (with regards to the inception of the major monotheistic religions) and only in a few dozen(s) of countries may one change their religion freely, without fear of fallout or repercussion of their 'transgression.'

    I'm all for religious freedom and the right to wear religious symbols/paraphernalia, but it's understandable why she shouldn't be allowed to wear a headscarf in a sport with strict clothing regulations.

    Hey, sometimes you have to personally sacrifice for your fairy tale. Could another athlete be part of a religion that mandates steroid use and still compete? No.

    Call me crazy but I thought the Olympics pertained to sportsmanship and skills. This is just f*ucking stupid. Go home and pray.

      WOw. The amount of ignorance on this forum is shocking.
      The safety aspect of this all that makes sense. If she loves what she believes then it doesn't concern you damn.
      It could have risks to the judo fight, and that's (to me) the most important thing. She should wear a tighter head covering.
      There. Problem solved.

      Or she can follow the rules like everyone else and take off the head scarf or....not compete. Pretty simple.

      @Level Headed,
      Just out of curiosity, does the same apply for other religions like the Sikhs and their kirpan?

      @LopSidedHead

      The Olympics is not about religion is it? At the end of the day it's about athletes competing amongst each other in a global arena. It's about skill, craftsmanship, endurance; both physical and mental and I honestly do not see where religion should even be considered in such a venue. If you want to be proud about your faith and religion so be it but don't start this crazy sh*it in the Olympics, this is not the place and time for it.

      If anything all participants should be required to sacrifice an animal to Zeus, shouldn't they.

    I find this an interesting case. Normally I would be all for advancement of women in sports regardless of religion, but there is much more to this, apparently, than just an athlete wanting to participate and observe her religion at the same time.
