El "Shish-kibab"

Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa - and the Niqab Too

Submitted by joe kaffir (United States), Aug 3, 2007 at 13:13

The Niqab, the jilbab, the hijab, the chador, the birka, the abaya, the jelava. Bastos! enough ! I propose a single unifed term for ALL head toppings and/or face covering devices for the perpetually modest muslima making her annoying fashion statement.

El "Shiska-kibab"

Thus we can sop fighting over the "PC" terms and endlessly changing spellings of these unsightly abominations.

As to why they MUST be banned, BECAUSE WE SAY SO .
