Islamo-Felia

Reader comment on item: Philadelphia's Burqa Crisis

Why is this covering considered religious? It is a disguise - and Muslims should not have special protection. I don't even think we should call it by their Arabic names, they are coverings. At best it is more a tradition of their expression of suppression of women as property rather then some kind of expression of religious piety.

We in the West have a very serious issue here that needs to be addressed. The issue is legal, and safety. Michael Savage calls it Islamo- felia. This generations inaction is dooming the next ones to live under this situation.
