Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women
in response to reader comment: Hijabs are worn for respect a sign of modesty... so no it is not like a prayer shawl

The wearing of Muslam identifiers are a red flag to non Muslams. We know the hostility toward non muslams that the mythology teaches, and it is the dame as a Nazi swastika, or the communinst hammer and sickle. Symbols of passive aggressive behaviors and alien belief systems dedicated to the destruction of the American Experiment in individual freedom. You have every right to wear anything you want in a free society. Women in Iran MUST wear what you chose to wear. It is a symbol of repression and hate toward non Muslams. Perhaps if you moved to Iran the question would be moot.
