"those of us who have studied Islam" lol - lol - you make me laugh

...

All pictures the writer of this article showed, do not show the women wearing Hijab, they wear headscarf.

(except one - Elsebeth Gerner Nielsen, a former Danish minister of culture.)

(The rest are wearing Headscarfs)

Hijab should cover the whole hair, but in the case of those pictures, hair is not fully covered, except for one.

Headscarf is not a new thing to Europeans.

The writer of the article knows very well that even in the 1950s and 1960s women in east Europe in Greece, they all wore the headscarf, they cannot go out on the streets without it.

During Jesus Christ time all women are portrayed wearing HIJAB not Headscarf.

Recently I went to a church museum, and they depicted as models Our beloved Mary the mother of our beloved Jesus and many other women in Jesus Christ era , they all are wearing HIJAB and they look like Arabs in their features with camels and cattle. You should understand that Jesus was an Arab Jews with Aramaic not Hebrew tongue. (Arabic is originated from Aramaic)

Nuns upto this day they wear HIJAB. they cover from head to toe.

Why on earth do you make a commotion out of this normal purifying behaviour, if not out of jealousy and hatred.

Nuns should be an example to all Christian women. But the Christian women like to be naked.

So in conclusion, you are promoting hatred, you are not being objective.
