Robert, I quote you ; "I feel angry when I see a Muslim woman wearing the Hijab where she flaunts in my face this archaic symbol of slavery especially towards woman".

Tell me Robert, what would you do if you see a nun who covers her head, or an Orthodox jewish wife who either covers her head or even shaves it as part of her religious duty, would you still feel the same anger?,.

Robert, women covering their head is an Abrahamic requriement( Jewish, Christian and Moslems ) , think of Catholic women going to Church , does it anger you if they feel they need to cover their head? .
