It takes a nation to protect the nation
Considering that 99.5% of British muslims are avowedly homophobic, I'd like to suggest that muslims trying being gay for a day. I think a bit of sodomy might make muslim men less homophobic.
World Hijab Day calls on non-Muslim women to try out life under the traditional head scarf. Can it lead to more religious tolerance and understanding?
"Because I'm not very skilled I'm wearing what you could call a one-piece hijab - you just pull it over your head. But I've discovered the scope is endless. There are all sorts of options."
So says Jess Rhodes, 21, a student from Norwich in the UK. She had always wanted to try a headscarf but, as a non-Muslim, didn't think it an option. So, when given the opportunity by a friend to try wearing the scarf, she took it.
"She assured me that I didn't need to be Muslim, that it was just about modesty, although obviously linked to Islam, so I thought, 'why not?'"
Rhodes is one of hundreds of non-Muslims who will be wearing the headscarf as part of the first annual World Hijab Day on 1 February.

Originated by New York woman Nazma Khan, the movement has been organised almost solely over social networking sites. It has attracted interest from Muslims and non-Muslims in more than 50 countries across the world.
For many people, the hijab is a symbol of oppression and divisiveness. It's a visible target that often bears the brunt of a larger debate about Islam in the West.
World Hijab Day is designed to counteract these controversies. It encourages non-Muslim women (or even Muslim women who do not ordinarily wear one) to don the hijab and experience what it's like to do so, as part of a bid to foster better understanding.
"Growing up in the Bronx, in NYC, I experienced a great deal of discrimination due to my hijab," says organiser Khan, who moved to New York from Bangladesh aged 11. She was the only "hijabi" (a word for someone who wears the headscarf) in her school.
I figured the only way to end discrimination if we ask our fellow sisters to experience hijab themselves”
"In middle school I was 'Batman' or 'ninja,'" she says.
"When I moved on to college it was just after 9/11, so they would call me Osama Bin Laden or terrorist. It was awful.
"I figured the only way to end discrimination is if we ask our fellow sisters to experience hijab themselves."
Khan had no idea the concept would result in support from all over the world. She says she has been contacted by people in dozens of countries, including the UK, Australia, India, Pakistan, France and Germany. The group's literature has been translated into 22 languages.
It was social networking that got Jess Rhodes involved. Her friend Widyan Al Ubudy lives in Australia and asked her Facebook friends to participate.
"My parents, their natural reaction was to wonder if this was a good idea," says Rhodes, who decided to wear her hijab for a month.
"They were worried I would be attacked in the street because of a lack of tolerance."
Rhodes herself was concerned about the reaction, but after eight days of wearing the headscarf she has actually been surprised by how positive it has been.
As a way of different cultures gaining useful experience of the other may i suggest that Burqa clad muslim women try a day on an english beech wearing bikinis. I'm sure there'll be plenty of local lads willing to rub some sun cream on their backs and maybe a night out at the local club.
The muslim men can try shaving their beards and heads, and wearing a nice comfy pair of DM's. Maybe they could have a trip to a football match, where they can try out the finnest hotdogs. (sure to be horsemeat so no worries about eating pork).
I also think all muslim children would benefit from a day out to a british church, where they can make the sign of the cross as they walk in, and go and kneel down in front of jesus on the cross and say a couple of prayers.
I'm sure it would be a great cultural experience for them, and if they liked it, i'm sure they'd be free to drop islam and adopt a new religion/way of life.
Jessica Rhodes hasn't told us if she plans to carry on he experiment and try and become one of four wives for a couple of weeks. She could sample a good slap from her Husband, and then experience what it like to be an apostate. Although i'm sure after a couple of weeks wearing a head bag round school to show of her muti cultural credentials will be all she needs to understand what its like to be a muslim women.
The words idiot, fecking, and stupid, in any order!
Don't worry folks, the "moderate" Labour Party support them, so they must bo OK ! ; http://hurryupharry.org/2013/01/29/labour-embraces-islamist-extremi...
The Universal Anti-Fascist organisation (UAF) are apparently very angry at being upstaged by the new Hijab initiative to demonstrate political correctness and credentials.
Accordingly, they have begun a new, even more revolutionary campaign of
"Wear a Swastika month"
to bring back respect to their lineage through the National Socialist and German Workers Party. A leaflet they distribute perfectly articulates their ideological position:
"Symbols are just symbols, that is, marks on a piece of paper or clothing, or forms of clothing, or whatever. They have no intrinsic meaning at all. Any attempt to judge someone by the symbols they are wearing is pure fascist discrimination, and those doing that should be silenced and killed."
UAF members are now vigorously pursuing this new agenda to liberate the "dumb, reactionary,right wing, working class" as they call it, from all their prejudices against different forms of clothing and different symbols. Enthusiastic UAF cadres can now be seen parading through Golders Green and other areas, proudly displaying their Nazi insignia and encouraging passers by to wear the quaint Star of David on their sleeve.
One elite troupe of UAF members even prepared a touching cameo and performed it throughout the day outside Golders Green station. In this, various pastoral scenes show some of their members in their Nazi regalia, gassing a Jew to death. As Samantha Samimi of the UAF explained:
"We wanted people to overcome two prejudices with this art work. Firstly, as everyone knows, just a few Jews were killed in the 2nd World War, not much more than everyone else really, so we want to take away the ridiculous prejudice against holocaust denial, and, of course, the cruel and unjust policy of 'no-platform' that fascists like the Tory party apply to it.
Secondly, we wanted to unburden the common people of their totally unfounded prejudice against the Germans, and their quaint ethnic costumes."
Some bystanders did appear to be displeased with the performance so I asked Samantha if she had experienced any blatant discrimination or prejudice.
"Yes, today has been a very exciting and challenging day. We have experienced terrible oppression (as my Muslim Brotherhood friends say), through discrimination and abuse from bystanders. Some have frowned, some have sighed, and some have even told their children to turn away.
Then she explained with a playful smile:
"But we were prepared for this because after all, what do you expect from Der Ewige Jude?
We toughed it out so as to protect everyone's freedom to live under submission."
As I left this celebration of multi-cultural diversity, I could hear distant shouts of "Long Live Hamas" as they echoed around the forecourt.
Reports have just come in that Ed Millipede of the Labour Party is incensed they they too have failed to capitalise on this great propaganda opportunity. Accordingly he has started a new initiative:
"Wear a Burqa and throw acid on people month"
All female party members are encouraged to wear a burqa for a month in order to experience how liberating it is, and absolutely guarantees their hard won feminist rights and freedoms. Of course, men are expressly forbidden to join in on wear-a-burqa-month, as that might imply that there was any equality of rights between them, and that women are not deficient in intelligence, as the Prophet (PBUH) so rightly explained.
Labour Party website forums have been positively abuzz with questions like "How much acid?" and "Who do we throw it on?". The consensus seems to be that you throw as much acid as to cause that person to retreat from society in a mental and physical collapse, and throw it preferably on beautiful black girls, because its their fault for showing their beauty like a typical non-Muslim, and black people have always been traded by Islam as slaves anyway.
David Cameroon was asked to comment on wear-a-burqa-and-throw-acid-month, so he made a statement:
The Conservative Party will not be participating in this festival and celebration of cultural diversity. This must not be taken to mean that we are not totally committed to the promotion of all non-white cultures; far from it. But we feel that we are already demonstrating our commitment to the promotion of the master race (of Islam) in many other ways, and our members' time and resources are, naturally, limited.
Some totally irresponsible people have suggested that the Burqa can be used by common criminals to commit crimes, like throwing acid in people's faces, robbing shops, and by known terrorists to escape from the police, and that it therefore should be banned. I want to make it quite clear to all my friends in the Muslim community that I will never allow this to happen, and that their special privileges and exemptions will be totally protected while I am Prime Minister.
Lets not over-react to the 10 or 20 known cases where the holy Burqa has been used to commit crimes in this country. The important thing is that we don't do anything to offend Muslims. After all, that's probably what Ms Oni did by working in Victoria's Secret, and in full view of many fundamentalist Muslims. What could be more offensive than that? Its no wonder they got annoyed, and look what happened to her? I wouldn't like that to happen to my wife, so that's why Imy family has 24 hour police protection.
Its time to draw a line under this incident and stop talking about how to stop it happening again. (apart from Ms. Oni, of course, who's had her life totally destroyed forever). Then, when it does happen again, we'll all just draw another line under it, and get back on with our lives as before.
After a few questions, the press conference ended on a light hearted note with Mr. Cameroon imitating former PM Tony Blair by pointing at his own face and joking:
Do I look bovvered?
Where are the Muppets when we need them? Political satire is dead in this country. Thanks for trying to revive it Alan!
I'm no fan of the revolutionary communist Maryam Namazie, but she almost thinks like us on this issue.
We need a court case that decides whether or not the burka is a religious obligation in islam. Once that is decided we can
a) tell muslima MPs to shut up about islam unless they are wearing a burka; no muslim woman can complain about islamophobia unless she was wearing a burka
b) the burka (and possibly the hijab) can be banned.
Wearing a hijab is no more acceptable than wearing an SS uniform. The Profit of 20% only made women "veil" themselves in the latest stages of his genocidal conquests. Any muslima veiling herself is asserting that her islam is from that genocidal stage, not from the early Meccan stage. She is wearing a SS uniform.
Muslim man in Yorkshire beheads his girlfriend.
We should keep a record of all the threats to behead people. Such threats were unheard of in the UK 30 years ago, now such threats (and even beheadings) are commonplace.
Every time the Leftists Dhimmis promote World Hijab Day, we can ask them why they are so selective about the parts of islam they promote. Islam is a job lot, and they are promoting beheading when they promote hijabs. They wouldn't go round promoting "national socialism minus the jew hatred". They would say such things go together, when there is far more reason to believe that beheadings and FGM and murderous homophobia go with hijabs.
That's a good suggestion. And a celebration of Halal can be combined with a celebration of the Rite of Passage of an adolescent boy, when he does his first throat cutting of a goat.
Should that be seen as a cruel and vindictive act towards a helpless animal? Should that action be at all seen as also applicable and therefore threatening to humans, and a type of thinking and conditioning that should be deprecated? Good heavens no! This is the Master Race we are talking about here. All such criticisms are simply unnecessary and irrelevant (and they may even get you killed).
Here's another thing for them to celebrate on World Hijab Day -- the massive abortion of foetus' who will grow to be girls.
Not even safe to have XY chromosomes around islam.
