MAHSA AMINI and NPR at Last Calls it "Hijab"! Oh "Headscarf"? It is Gone. I wonder why!

Dr. Pipes,

At last NPR is admitting the obvious. A Hijab and a headscarf are not the same. And in the case of Iran it is not part of the Iranian culture. "al-Hijab" is part of the Arab/Islamic culture and nothing wrong with that but it is not Iranian


And just a few reminders:

1. Mahsa Amini had nothing in common with George Floyd.

2. The creepy claim, by the "Woke" crowd, that wearing al-Hijab by Muslim women is empowering and it is a choice they make, is a creepy claim.

3. "HIjab" is not Iranian. It is imposed upon the women of Iran by their evil Mullahs.

4. The "uprising" in Iran that we are witnessing is another manifestation of the struggle of the people of Iran against religious fascism and the evil Mullahs.

5. The uprising in Iran has nothing in common with the Ukraine. Nothing what so ever.

6. Comparing the police in the US with the vile "Morality Squads" in Iran is a fraudulent comparison.

7. Blaming the patriarchy in Iran for the murder of Mahsa Amini is "Woke" nonsense. The people of Iran, both men and women, do not want this evil regime to be in charge of their lives and the way they live. They do not want al-Shari'a nonsense.

8. The "woke" media in the US the likes of the dying "Vogue" should stop pretending that wearing hijab empowers women and there is nothing glamorous about it.

Dear readers: If you want to follow the unfolding uprising in Iran, I urge you all to follow Masih Alinejad's Twitter account and do not depend on our dying Legacy Media and do not listen to the likes of AOC, who took her 6 days to comment on this tragedy.

Last, and this is a reminder, al-Hijab (Curtain) and al-Tarha (Headscarf) are not the same.
