Hernando student in hijab *would* stand for the flag. And apparently *did.*
2009-09-02 15:21:00
A few days ago, I wrote about a young Muslim student at Springstead High who wouldn’t stand for the Pledge of Allegience and got a severe tongue lashing from fellow student Heather Lawrence as a result. To repeat my stance: Students should not be made to stand for the pledge. Other students are allowed to disagree and voice their opinions. However, now school officials are reporting that the student wearing a hijab did stand for the flag. Could it be that Heather Lawrence had a racist moment? Principal Susan Duval believes Heather fabricated the story about her fellow student to justify a less-than-tolerant berating Heather felt compelled to give in high school’s hallway. So Duval shortened her suspension and now wants to put the entire incident behind them and move on. I disagree. If Heather Lawrence, and other students at the Hernando County high school, believed that the hijab and certainly any expression of a fundamental religious belief, be it Christian, Jewish, or...
Hernando student in hijab wouldn’t stand for the flag
2009-08-29 19:07:00
As a teacher, I never forced a student to stand for the pledge. I prefer to know which students are expressing love of country or respect for the flag because they feel it and which ones don’t give a flying fuck. But that’s just me: I heart transparency. Besides, the idea of compulsory pledging goes against what this country stands for in the first place. An excerpt from my earlier post on the subject: “I never make my students stand up,” I said. “I encourage them to do so, but if they don’t, well, that’s okay, too.” My friend and fellow teacher just stared at me. “You’re kidding, right?” she asked. “Nope,” I said, smiling meekly. “Katie!” she said, half-laughing. “They should stand up. It’s a sign of respect!” “I agree,” I said. “But forcing students to stand seems to go against what our flag stands for in the first place. I don’t think we should make...
Leicestershire police incorporate hijab into uniforms

All part of the increasing Islamization of the police, what else. From This is Leicestershire (via Dhimmi Watch): Police have opened the door to female Muslim recruits by incorporating the hijab into the uniform.

Top Muslim Cleric: Kill Women who won?t wear Hijab
2007-12-19 20:53:00
The voice of Islam rears its ugly head.  Oh and he wants the woman’s father and husband killed as well for not forcing their daughters or wives to wear the Hijab. I expect the MSM to completely ignore this, and the Muslim world to shrug and look the other way. The religion of tolerance, understanding, dialogue and ...
Aqsa Parvez : 16 Year Old Killed in Family Dispute Over Hijab
2007-12-16 04:05:00
The recent tragic killing of sixteen year old Toronto student, Aqsa Parvez, was in large part a consequence of a clash of cultures. Aqsa was strangled, allegedly by her father, after ongoing family tensions relating to her wish to live her own life, including dropping the wearing of the hijab.Efforts by some in the Toronto media to try and pass this off as just another domestic tragedy is fairly typical of the understatement that accompanies tragedies of this sort. Apparently fear of giving offense takes precedence over stating difficult truths. Information that was truly pertinent with respect to what led to the tragedy came from Aqsa's friends and associates.I strongly recommend this excellent article by Natasha Fatah. Ms Fatah addresses a number of the key issues surrounding this case in a clear and forthright fashion.Typical of the cop-out posture are feminists and women's advocacy groups who refuse to take a position that addresses patriarchal Muslim attitudes and the oppres...

Imam: "Man Killing His Daughter Over Hijab Has Nothing To Do With Islam"
2007-12-14 02:58:00
Rubbish..Muslim community leaders say they are saddened by the slaying of a 16-year-old Mississauga, Ont. teenager, but say Islam had nothing to do with it.The religious figures said Islam in no way condones acts of violence, and the death shouldn't reflect badly on their faith."The bottom line is, it's a domestic violence issue,'' Sheik Alaa El-Sayyed, imam at Mississauga's Islamic Society of North America, said at a press conference. "We, as Muslims, are Canadians and we should be dealt with just like everyone else. We have rights, duties ... pros and cons just like all other human beings.''Aqsa Parvez died Monday night from "neck compression," her autopsy showed.Her father, Muhammad Parvez, has been charged with murder. The victim's 26-year-old brother, Waqas, has been charged with obstructing police in the investigation. He is scheduled to appear in court Friday for a bail hearing.Friends of the girl said she often clashed with her family over her refusal to wear a hijab...
Topless Danish traffic controllers

Innovative Danes use topless women to control traffic! In light of mainstream Muslims’ hilariously stupid argument that hijabs somehow ensure women will not be harassed, I find this video an effective counter-argument: Danes are using topless models to slow down traffic speeding, and it’s extremely effective! (Without being harassed, as would have been the case if ...

Canada: 16 Year Old Muslim Girl Strangled For Not Wearing Hijab
2007-12-11 21:51:00
GatewayPundit has the details.Toronto - A dispute over Western culture may be behind an attack that killed a 16-year-old Mississauga girl.School officials announced Aqsa Parvez's death to students at Applewood Heights Secondary School this morning.Parvez was clinging to life at the Hospital for Sick Children after an alleged attack by a man who told police he was her father.Classmates at the school said the Grade 11 student lived in fear of her father, who was charged with attempted murder yesterday.They said she often argued with him about the hijab and her desire to follow Western fashion trends.Other peers told the Toronto Star the girl used to leave home in traditional dress and then change as soon as she arrived at school.SOURCE

Hijab and Dressing of woman in Islam
2007-12-02 12:40:00
HIJAB The term hijab, includes not only the covering of body, but methods of behavior before members of the same or opposite sex, promoting privacy for females and prohibiting intermingling sexes, to ensure modesty, decency, chastity and above all, respect and worship of Allah. Minor differences exist among the scholars regarding the actual number of the requirements because of varying methods used in codifying them. The ones mentioned here represent the ones agreed upon by the overwhelming majority of scholars and are all solidly backed by firm evidence taken from the Qur?an, the Sunnah and the practice of the Sahabah (the Companions). THE EXTENT OF COVERING The dress worn in public must cover the entire body except what has been specifically excluded, based upon the following proofs: Allah says: ? And tell the believing women to lower their gaze and guard their private parts from sin and not show of their adornment except only that which is apparent, and draw their headcovers ...
Indonesia: Sharia Police "Wear Hijab Or Else"
2007-11-30 06:34:00
Oh the joys of living under Islamic Law!A teenage girl wearing a jilbab (head scarf) stared sharply at Banda Aceh's sharia enforcement officer Raja Dakdan, who was lecturing girls rounded-up for wearing "inappropriate" clothes in front of the city's Baiturrahman Grand Mosque.Some of them bent in shame and others, including one without jilbab, expressed their indifference to an angered Raja, who pointed at the youths and criticized their tight jeans and shirts.Although they wore scarves and covered their aurat or certain body parts, they were still considered in breach of Qanun (bylaw) No. 11/2002 on Muslim women's dress code, and as reported in the front page photo of The Jakarta Post, Nov. 16, the girls could be caned.What happened if my children were among them? That was the first reaction as I scrutinized the picture, because my two daughters do not wear head scarves. Second, can the measures taken to enforce the bylaw give a better understanding of Islam and nurture legal obe...

Allo stesso tempo penso i paesi occidentali che lo vietano peccano di semplice pregiudizio contro l’Islam. Una parola a parte meritano a mio ...

Canada: Muslim Upset Over Hijab Having To Be Removed During Soccer
2007-11-28 06:08:00
The decision to yank a teen soccer player from a match because she was wearing a religious head scarf has outraged a local Muslim leader.Syed Soharwardy, president of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada, said Safaa Menhem should be permitted on the field wearing a hijab."I don't buy it because a person could also pull a shirt and choke a person. This is not a safety issue. It is just a racist and discriminatory decision against Muslims," Soharwardy said."Her rights should be respected -- this is her free choice."On Saturday, a senior referee pulled Safaa, 14, a forward on the Chinook Phantoms U16 squad, from a soccer match because he believed the chin strap on her hijab posed a choking risk, said Gary Roy, referee development officer for the Alberta Soccer Association.Roy said the ref was simply following the rules."I can 100% guarantee this is not a religious issue, it's a safety issue," he said."The options are: Conform the head gear so it becomes safe; remove it and play; or ...

Nothing Wrong with Banning wearing of Hijab
2007-11-07 23:29:00
Hijab-a-scooterOriginally uploaded by aymanshamma.I am using the free WiFi at the JetBlue terminal in JFK. Laptops outnumber passengers without them. I should be in Las Vegas shortly after midnight EST. So I decided to dash off this post before my plane departs; I can't wait for Internet in the Sky. If this country asked Muslims to eat pork - I would stand up for their rights because it is compulsory in Islam to avoid the eating of pork. If this country asked Muslims to drink alcohol - I would stand up for their rights because it is compulsory in Islam to avoid the drinking of alcohol. If we asked Muslims to pray to Jesus - I would stand up for their rights because it is compulsory in Islam to pray only to Allah because God does not beget nor is he begotten. But all Muslims tell you that wearing of the hijab is voluntary, that Muslim women LOVE wearing the veil and there is no compulsion to its use. So if it is truly a matter of choice, and the lifting of the veil is no i...
