Think again....

Reader comment on item: Hijabs on Western Public Women
in response to reader comment: Its ok for Jews and Christians but not Muslims

Submitted by donvan (United States), Jul 3, 2009 at 06:29

Because I'slamism advocates, and indeed uses, force and violence to advance and control those unfortunate souls caught up in the dogma, it is assumed that the wearing of a proscribed head covering by women is dogma enforcement, as in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and those areas wher I'slamism has control. This may, of course, be a misunderstanding on the part of the uninitated, but it does seem odd that every single female in the I'slmism Republic of Iran has the exact same taste in fashion. Why do we not see all women in Jewish and Christian societies wearing a common clothing? Because they don't have to. In non I'slamism, women may chose what to wear, cover head, not cover head same thing. In I'slamism country, cover head, chop head same thing. I'slamism is force, head covering, when to pray, what to eat, etc, etc, you get the idea.....
