Aisha posters in Bahrain

Reader comment on item: Bibliography – My Writings on Moderate Muslims
in response to reader comment: The Aisha Prophecy

Submitted by Phil Bryant (United States), Oct 26, 2007 at 08:36

I reported this a few weeks ago. I was in Bahrain on business in August and saw a full-color poster that someone's been hanging in women's rest rooms all over the country and - I'm told - they're being smuggled across the causeway into Saudi Arabia. The poster depicts Aisha, dressed in white, astride a camel, her robes girded as if for battle and the angel Qaila hovering above and behind her, Qaila's hair on fire and holding a flaming sword. I'm still trying to get a copy by mail. Nervous authorities are tearing them down as fast as they can find them. This prophecy seems to have some momentum.
