Maldives Minister says economy cannot be sustained if strict Islam is in force. Islamist demands include no Israeli airlines, no criticism of flogging

Per Maldives Islamists, no Israeli airlines are allowed to operate, all hotel spas must close, and the UN Human Rights Cmsr. must be condemned for criticizing Islam's sacred practice of flogging women.

"We can only sustain our economy by following the moderate form [of Islam] which has been in the Maldives until now. We [ministers] are labelled anti-Islamic because we support the tolerant form [of Islam]. But that label is a disgrace to our parents as well," she (Tourism Minister Dr Mariyam Zulfa) said.

The minister stressed that requests from several resort owners have led her ministry to look into ways to allow resorts to resume spa operations....

Zulfa also admitted that the government's decision would affect the tourism industry.

Tourism Ministry issued a circular on Thursday ordering all the resorts in Maldives to shut down their spas claiming that a majority of Maldivians have accused the spas of being run as brothels.

"As specifying a certain distance from Male would not be a wise decision [in closing down spas] and that other resorts, which also cater for locals, are located close to inhabited islands, the government has decided to close down the spas in all the resorts on a fair basis and by giving a higher priority to the allegations made," the circular read.

Religious organisations and opposition parties gathered at the Tsunami Monument area on December 23 condemning the government's religious policies and making five demands to the government.

The demands include

  • removing the SAARC monuments in Addu,
  • condemning UN human rights chief Navi Pillay's comments about Islamic Sharia,
  • not allowing Israeli airlines to operate flights,
  • closing down the brothels in the country and
  • a reversed decision on declaring areas of inhabited islands uninhabited in order to permit alcohol sales.
Maldives Association of Tourism Industry (MATI) yesterday raised concerns over the decision saying that it would affect the tourists

Pacific and Indian Ocean island nations aren't sinking at all and what problems they have are due to nature and poor governance, not CO2.

Maldives lacks fresh water naturally (see heading 'Population). The Hollywood/UN/Maldives/Billionaire shadow world government seeks to blame and drain the evil American middle class.

It hasn't vanished due to 'global warming.' Habitats such as this have never been suitable for large populations.

Maldives is NATURALLY the lowest sea level nation on the planet--having nothing to do with CO2 or warming.
