Mohammed: The difference is THAT nuns assimilate and their faces are always shown and I've Moslem friends that have very special to me for many, many years I love them so much but they don't cover their face, never had any problems with ID purposes and still practice e their Quran beliefs just the same-they're STILL MOSLEMS just not face covered FACED ones.

There was just a robbery last week because a man dressed like a religious woman with the full body covering-what did you think of that??? We're you proud????

For the first fined woman in Europe for the outlawed covering - the husband responded and HE DID SAY "SHE'LL NEVER GO OUT IN PUBLIC AGAIN-IS THIS RIGHT???? WOULD YOU WANT TO BE THIS POOR VICTIM NO MATTER WHAT YOUR SEX IS? THAT'S THE FULLEST FORM OF ESPOUSAL ABUSE -I'VE BEEN THERE MYSELF- WOULD YOU JUST LET YOUR SPOUSE HAVE HIS WAY AND let Him make you DISAPPEAR FROM THE WORLD BEHIND CLOSED DOORS???

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A VICTIM TO ABUSE IN THIS WAY????

YOU'RE AN EDUCATED MAN A CPA -WE'RE BOTH EDUCATED AND I HOPE THAT YOU CAN SEE WHERE I'M COMING FROM TOO.

I HAPPEN TO BE A WOMAN TOO-A VERY PROUD FREE WOMAN IN A SOCIETY WITH MODERN WOMEN'S RIGHTS AND THIS LADY IS HAVING ALL HER RIGHTS AS A WOMAN TAKEN AWAY INCLUDING HUMAN DIGNITY THAT'S DESTROYED-SHE'S BEING KEPT PRISONER BY HER HUSBAND-IF MEN HAD THIS PROBLEMT, WOULDN'T THEY SAY ANYTHING???

I UNDERSTAND ALL CULTURES HAVE THEIR DIFFERENCES CORRECT AND THAT'S WHY THE WORLD IS SO DIVERSE -YES.

BUT RIGHTS OF WOMAN ARE INTERNATIONAL NO MATTER WHAT-WOMAN AREN'T JUST CREATED FOR MEN'S PLEASURES ONLY (I'VE GOT 3 GROWN KIDS ) WE'VE OTHER RIGHTS AS WOMEN TOO- TO BE FREE NOT TO BE SUBSERVIENT TO MEN NO MATTER WHERE WE'RE FROM.

OF COURSE RESPECT IS IMPORTANT YES -THAT'S WHY WOMEN SUFFER ALL OVER THE WORLD BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS-MEN NEED TO RESPECT WOMEN TOO.
