Muslim Actress Poses Nude For Playboy, Gets Death Threats

When a Jew or a Christian poses naked or engages in intimate relations on video, her co-religionists don’t threaten to kill her for her sins.

Sure, those who take their religion seriously are disgusted by her behavior, nobody gets more riled up about women running around naked than myself, not even Osama Bin Laden, but it wouldn’t even occur to me to threaten to kill her.

I’d rather love her and gently instruct her that the queen’s power lies within.

Heck, some of us would even be willing to marry her (provided she converted to Orthodox Judaism), if only to make an honest woman of her and to save her family from shame.

I wonder if she has high self-esteem?

Does she understand that her true worth lies not with her bodily appearance but with the development of her soul?

The Sun reports from Berlin:

A MUSLIM actress has caused a storm by posing naked for Playboy.
Sila Sahin has been branded a “whore” and a “western slut” after appearing topless on the cover of the German edition of the men’s magazine.

And Islamic fanatics have posted threatening internet messages.

Sila, raised in Germany by conservative Turkish parents, says she fears being “spat at” and “shamed”.

Her parents are said to have reacted with “horror” at the 12-page coverage, and her mother has apparently cut off all contact.

Sila, 25 – star of German soap Good Times, Bad Times – claimed the shoot was a reaction to the “slavery” of her youth.

Would not a healthier reaction to the slavery of her youth would be to study the freedom found in the seven mitzvos of the sons of Noah?

I wonder if posing nude brought this young woman the same kind of deep abiding happiness I get from studying Torah?

So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains to the patriarchal male gaze and we never even know we have the key.

I wonder if it is Sila Sahin’s religion that so attracts me to her or if it is more her acting abilities or her sweet personality or her love of freedom?

This whole story leaves me strangely repelled and yet sucked in. I wonder what Dennis Prager would say?

I fear that many of my readers are thinking — this nasty slut posed naked, now I can treat her like Lara Logan in Tahrir square (aka forcibly undress her and pinch her all over for 30 minutes).

Take it from one who knows — this is not the path to inner peace.

Please, let’s stop the violence before it is too late.
