A lot of disguising in the Muslim world.

Reader comment on item: Niqabs and Burqas - The Veiled Threat Continues

I've wondered many times about the Muslim women wearing these so called garments that cover them from head to tow in countries where it gets hotter than in hell.No one will record this information but it will not surprise me to find out that many women faint or have heat strokes as a result of wearing burqas.I often wondered if it is not one more way to abuse women in the Muslim world where women amount to so little.Walking around looking like a shapeless tent must be degrading to women, making them feel as if they are not human beings.

There is a lot of disguising in the Arab world , mostly for terror purposes.Sadly women are being used as on the verge of giving birth too.In Israel they learned that some women who claim to have a baby in their belly actually have a bomb undre their dress.

I am sure that the idea did not come from the women but from abusive men.
