The Niqab is the Flag of Islamism​

In Khaled Hosseini’s soul-piercing novel A Thousand Splendid Suns, the character Nana, a poor, unwed mother, tells her five-year-old daughter, Mariam: “Learn this now and learn it well, my daughter: Like a compass needle that points north, a man’s accusing finger always finds a woman. Always. You remember that, Mariam.”

Hosseini’s best-selling novel was about life in Afghanistan, but in the 30 words above he sums up the way men govern the lives of women across much of the Muslim world. Like Mariam, millions of Muslim girls are told very early in life by their mothers that their place in society is one of submission; submission not to God, but to man.

    The niqab is first introduced as 1) an option, then it becomes 2) a preferred option, 3) normal, 4) regulated, 5) legislated, 6) enforced, and finally it becomes 7) mandatory & a criminal matter. At what stage, should we say ‘no’?

    In the West, many women have been murdered by their families because they refused to wear the veil.

    Since the niqab is such a danger to women who refuse to wear one, it should be banned in the same way as other dangerous objects are banned.

    Women who are accused of becoming ‘too Westernized’ will then be safe from intimidation. How many honour killings must there be before common sense comes to the rescue?”

    The niqab is a prison uniform for women.

    “The niqab has become the symbol of Islamism”.

    This is who Canada’s media cartel are all aflutter supporting the niqab. It represents anti-Jewish/anti-Western hate, and it represents mass war crimes everywhere. So the media support it.

    • It is an absolutely absurd situation. The MSM is by and large composed of leftist cranks.

        ..pathetic trying to listen to TALK-RADIO from down South…totally pussified, can’t get anymore dumbed down, may as well talk about their toasters and coffee-makers, would be more entertaining…

      …instead of saying “f-you” to your face, they go pat some a-hole on the back…

    The hijab is too. No one in Toronto wore a hijab or spade beard until the 9/11 terror attacks. Then a bunch of Muslims came out of the woodwork and decided “I belong to that gang. I’ll wear the hijab/niqab and/or spade beard.”

    The hijab/niqab/spade beard are gang colours.

      Indeed, the percentage of Canadians (leftists, radical Islamists) who support war criminality is amazing.

    The left goes on about mission creep yet they support Islam creep.

    The only time I want to see such walking symbols of Death is Hallo-ween…they are damned offensive, this is what it means to this whitey…F.O. with the death shroud. How ’bout I visit Mecca and wear black leather chaps with no pants or underwear, would you find that offensive, Ali???

    The niqab is not a traditional apparel except in the most backward parts of the Muslim world. It is worn in the West exclusively as a provocation, to offend the sensibilities of all civilized people, and as a way of proclaiming the triumph of theocractic absolutism over secular state.

    • I agree, it is “showing the finger to Western host countries”, but it is also “testing the waters to see how far one can go already” and that is why I blame the cowardly political establishment (both sides – with the exception of the Geert Wilders and the very few of his courage) – who, at least initially, let them go much further than even *they* had expected to be able to.

      And now in countries like Sweden, Norway, France, England and even Germany, the goat has bolted. <— Yes I mean that to be a rude allusion to youknowwhat.
