Muslim Brotherhood launches online dating site

IkhwanDating may signal the end of arranged marriages

An online dating site was recently launched by the Muslim Brotherhood to help its male members find appropriately veiled woman with advanced skills in general obedience.

Men and women set up profiles on the social network where, much like Facebook, if a man finds a specimen of interest he may send her a “poke”, which on IkhwanDating signifies a marriage proposal.

The woman can then check out the pokers profile, and if her father agrees he can click on “Accept marriage proposal” on her behalf.

Members like Mahmoud El-Balboos have already been able to snatch up three obedient wives via IkhwanDating, and it’s no surprise given his spot-on profile:

Name: El-Balboos, Mahmoud
Age: 52
Education: PhD in reciting Koran while doing handstand.
Beard length: 83 centimeters.
Penis length: Istaghfar allah!!
Hobbies
: Reading and re-reading article 2 of the constitution.
Interested in
: Low IQ women with good set of ovaries.

Interestingly, IkhwanDating has two different entrances to the site, one for women and one for men. “In a proper Islamic society men and women must use different doors to avoid accidental touching, even if it is only virtual,” explained the site administrator, adding, “That’s why women have to add /horma to ikhwandating.com to be able to enter”

Meanwhile Salafi groups have criticized the site as too liberal, warning that personal pictures of fully veiled women can be too easily misconstrued as pornographic material.

I agree with Anonymous#1 and European Woman.
Freedom of speech is healthy as long as it doesn't offend anyone.
The Handstand thing is very offensive (if you don't get my point, consider it a cultural thing).
My point being, eventhough you're not criticizing the Religion iteself, bringing up The Holy Quran in your jokes about the MB is offensive.

The Muslim Brotherhood are not extremists. You should get to know them more before you try to mock them.

The piece is funny, I do think that satire is allowed some liberties. But in this time the attacks on MB are so many, I really think that people should take the time to know these people more.

the article is really lame, it shows that the writer don't have a clue about Muslim brotherhood and islamofobia.

i don't find the joke funny at all and i only think if they made such jokes what would we say, the writer her/him self would say that it is outrageous and we should stop them but it is OK to make jokes about them and say that they are stupid and shallow.

i am against Muslim brotherhood but when it come to choose life partner i saw them act much better than lot of people not like the writer who would properly care about the sexual part more than lot of things

know what you are talking about then start Mocking

This article is incredibly funny and creative.

The freedom to satirize religion and mock fundamentalists Is a foundational part of freedom of speech. It's not freedom of speech if you can't give your opinion about religions and their sometimes pointless rules.

The Ikhwan are indeed fundamentalists, they're always welcome to remove the "Muslim" and just call it the "Egyptian Brotherhood". But no, their party is about Islam, not Egypt.

Religion should never be immune to criticism and it never will be if Egypt is is to become a truly free country.

@Samy. WTF? what a shame when you claim false claims on Muslim Brotherhood group in Egypt. Did you deal with them before?? Stop fucking being stupid. Also, this website claims to be made to encounter some peroblems in Egypt in a satire manner, and, unfortunately, ALL about making fun of Muslims. Anyway, do you think the veil is a wear of Muslim Brotherhood women only? huh?!!! if you think so, sorry then you are stupid. By the way, here is an article written by Chritisan Egyptian writter about Muslims Brotherhood, she is saying the exact opposite of your lies. http://www.misrtimes.com/Columns/view.aspx?id=c1ba963a-c44a-453d-9c61-c9...

The point of satire is to sting... dont let anyone get you down!! the fact that people are complaining is the proof of that... anything that is uncontroversial is not worth saying... great job and keep it up!!

Hahaha love this! Anything that favors women's obedience over their human rights deserves to be mocked.

Can we have a sign on the homepage that says "If you don't have a sense of humor, please click here"... the link should go to Channel 1 or something!

You think this is funny?

Get a life. Things are funny till you start making fun of religion.

@You think this funny?

Correction: Things get EVEN funnier once you start making fun of religion.

How can one not make fun of such silly beliefs as flying donkeys, jinns and women being naturally inferior to men. Can you believe that some people actually live their lives believing in this nonsense?

Besides, who is it harming by making fun of it? So get a life and chill.

Personally, I believe that as long as Egyptians can't take a joke, and can't accept other people's point of views they will never be read for democracy. This is a funny article, and as an Egyptian Muslim, there is nothing wrong with it. People start using your brains a little bit!!

UROCK!

Your mother is a whore, and your father is an alcoholic, only then will a child grow up to have such hate for an organization that is trying to recover the glory that we once had when we were a MUSLIM empire.

you piece of shit, there is a line called the limit, and you just crossed the it.
