Talk about overkill…THIS ARTICLE is mostly rubbish. I have never worn, nor will I ever wear, a hijab, so I can’t know the exact emotions of this story, but I believe the woman’s reaction is total overkill…just NUTS. I believe this is to promote her beliefs and drag unthinking American liberals along with her..
This Muslim woman was going to court to finalize a divorce and she was denied entry “A small hair clip I overlooked set off the metal detector.” (Z: I never knew a tiny hair clip could set off a metal detector, but okay….let’s say it can….okay)
“We wear hijab as a sign of modesty, a sign of our connection to God, and a way to emulate one of the most revered women in our religious tradition: the Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus. “ Excuse me?? HERE is an article of 17 reasons muslim women wear hijabs…none includes the mother of Jesus. No other articles I found about wearing hijabs mentioned Mary or Jesus, either; you don’t tend to get Jesus or the Virgin Mary mentioned in anything related to Islam! (And yes, I know, muslims do believe Jesus lived and was a good man. BIG difference to believing that and emulating his mother as part of islamic tradition!)
“Being asked to remove my hijab in public by a man is like being asked to take off my shirt in front of him.” As embarrassing as showing your naked breasts to a stranger? WHAT?
“I was forced to kneel down in front of them, a position of prostration and vulnerability that Muslims offer only to God. “ So you can’t kneel for anybody or anything else?
“I hope to use my experience to seek justice for myself, other Muslim women, and all Americans by filing a lawsuit against the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office (Z: SURPRISE!) to ensure that members of religious minorities are treated with respect on entering public buildings. No one should have to experience what I did and I hope to set an example for my young children, that they may grow up in a country that honors their religion and treats them fairly and with dignity.” Right…like Iran? You mean you hope to use your experience to sue and make some big dough, right, now that you’re getting divorced?
Everyone wants people in this country treated fairly, but not to the peril of Americans. We’d like to be assured that when we see someone enter a building or a crowd outside, nobody’s going to blow up. She says she asked for a female deputy to look under the hijab and that probably should have happened, but the excuses and the leftwing idiocy this woman brings up are sickening…and probably extremely dangerous, too.
As I titled this piece and I’ll say it again; it’s America, learn our customs, err on our side, go with our rules, keep us all safe. I found this article so disingenuous and so exaggerated and so playing to the liberal silliness of ‘them before us,’ that I had to post it and get your thoughts…
And yes, I could have used a hijab image for this post, but…I couldn’t bring myself to.
