"Making a big deal out of nothing." Raheel May 28th, 2009

Raheel:

Ok... I did "overreact" to YOUR comment. But revisit what u said. Either you are being willfully ignorant or are practicing "taqiyya" which makes u no better than the hate filled "brothers" and "sisters."

You can't make statements and then backtrack and not expect it to blow up in your face. Living in Londinistan, u must know/realize that the insidious tendency to dress "native" in your environs (to include leveraging the Hijab) have nothing to do with modesty/wanting to express one's culture in a free state; rather, it is being used as both a psychological WEAPON and to say to non-Muslims in THEIR land: We are here and we are growing (in numbers) so SUBMIT now or else.

Happened to be in "Londinistan" just the other day, and in the cab en route to the airport at 4am, I got to talking to the English chap who was the driver. The 1 1/2 hour drive turned into a "conversation" that he informed me could, at a minimum, get him arrested for using speech that could "incite violence"!! This comment left this writer flabbergasted. What happened to "free speech"???? It was a very enlightening conversation with an Englishman who can't be "English" IN HIS OWN COUNTRY for FEAR of retribution by HIS state!!

BTW, as for letting your daughter make her own marital choices: SEEING IS BELIEVING. CONCRETE ACTIONS TELL THE TRUE STORY my friend...

Submitting....
