We start with the Miss Muslim Beauty Pageant (not a joke)
I have been among those following the development of the Ground Zero Victory Mosque in New York City -- you know, the triumphal fifteen story monument to Islam, to be constructed adjacent to the hole in the ground that they take credit for. And surprisingly enough there are a number of women who seem to be in favor of the mosque. If there were more Muslims in America than non-Muslims, this is how you'd be forced to dress. If you choose to go to many Islamic countries and decide not to dress in hijab, you can be killed for your conduct.
The Imam below discusses how if a woman is seen in public without her head covered, her hair should be cut off as a mater of political and religious doctrine within Islam.
He also expresses his feelings that if a woman is seen outside hijab, she is setting herself up to be raped (because Islamic men can't help themselves).
Pat Condell weighs in:
Islam has always been a 'religion' of conquest (convert or die) - and therefore is a political movement every bit as much or more than it is a religious movement. I am not suggesting that Islam not be allowed to be practiced in the Free World, however, the treatment of women, the wisdom of banning the burka/hijab, etc. is a logical first step in our response to their horrible treatment of women.
