Dhimmi No More!

About the video: "Gamal 'Abd el-Nasser making fun of the demand of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood that Egyptian women should cover their hair with al-Hijab and that was in the 1950's".

So good! I really enjoyed it! Your home, your rules. Love it! Leaders like him are indeed needed, but I am afraid that they wouldn't last very much in their position. Yes, today, the hijab is getting trendy even in Australia! Will you believe me if I told you that I saw another popular Western clothing store promoting the hijab through their shop windows today? It is the second brand this year so far. And what about the new advertisement of the famous Muslim fashionist/Instagrammer Yasmin Jay wearing an immaculate hijab while using a popular stain remover? Is it only here, or you can watch it as well in the States? I am curious. I wonder if they are trying to send us a subliminal message: hijab equals purity and cleaning? It wouldn't surprise me at this stage.

All this is happening, while we should encourage these women to free themselves of their labelling layers. After watching your video, Dhimmi No More, I can't even say that we are going backwards. It is even worse. Sad.

There it goes in case you haven't seen it there:
