No one said it wasn't all right for her -- we freedom-loving non-Moslems think she's dressed fine

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

No non-Moslem criticized her attire, nor even cares how she dresses. We are pleased she does not dress as a Moslem because it indicates she (and her husband) don't intend to murder the freedom of non-Moslems to dress as they like. If the Hijab wasn't associated with all the evils of Islam, it would be a matter of complete indifference to us. Someone wearing the Hijab is either being forced to do it (which is sad for her and bodes ill for our freedom when we see it in the West) OR she does it voluntarily and thus probably wants to impose it and all other Moslem regulations on the rest of us by force.
