Al Qaeda's New Year Message

There are some muslim women for whom freely choosing to wear the veil is merely an attempt to intimidate. Its really the equivalent of donning a nazi uniform, after all.


Al Qaeda agree.


"AL-QAEDA'S deputy leader said yesterday that any Muslim woman who wears the veil in Western countries is a supporter in what he described as a fight between Islam and "Zionist Crusaders".

If you are born in this country and then choose to wear this garb you are making it very clear where you stand in 2007. In turn so am I.

If one was able to listen in on conversations on politics with women freely choosing to wear the burqa or niqab, would any sane person be surprised to hear them express sympathy or support with militant Islamic organisations?

You are abolutely right, and I think it's about time more people stand up and make it very clear where they stand.

Anybody who chooses to wear a f**** niqab is by definition an Islamic fundamentalist. They may not be waging armed warfare, but they are saying I am a very serious Muslim. I for one will be saying clearly I utterly oppose everything you [veiled Women] stand for.

I wonder if that makes me Kluxaphobic?

Niqabis are thumbing their nose at us. If you are a woman, I would urge you to confront them (minus their honor-driven men)and ask them what they are doing. Veiling violates our social norms and everyone's security as CCTV is rendered useless faced with anonymous figures in black beekeeper smocks. We have a right to confront them.

I recently asked one why she was veiled, her answer did not suffice for my purposes: 'because of my religion'. Didn't have time to tell her about the number of international fatwas that proclaim the hijab itself unnecessary, let alone a freaky mask.

islam is essentially laughable but last year IT REALLY GOT UP MY NOSE!!

I agree 100%. Wearing the full garb - head to toe and face covered - makes a definite statement. They follow the murderous whackos. That is the only reason for wearing it. They believe that people respect it? HA. It is not respect I feel for them.

I don't feel this way about women who only cover their hair.

I too agree 100%. Don't get me wrong...
It's with the solutions offered here I have questions.
your right jonz they are saying or at least thinking they are a serious muslim and a fundamentalist ... and what do these type people beleive? Do I need to tell you? They beleive you will fight against them, it's jihad remember... thats why I try to say stop waging jihad back! It will increase the extremisim. It plays into the hands of the fundamentalist. There is a muslim american reformist blogger who has wrote many times on this topic. Should they be ignored? absolutly not! But if confronting them is the obvious answer can't anyone ever try being smarter instead of stronger?

They believe we WONT fight against them or have an opinion. Thats the problem. The UK happily turned a blind eye to jihadists for a decade Tu. Multi culti practises ensured that. The result? 50+ people who probably mostly were against the war and ardent socialists parroting that 'ooh dont say anything' mentality died. Have any of the cartoon protestors yet been brought to justice? Which would be reasonable enough. Hardly jihad waging. The police didnt want to intervene that day for fear of causing more violence. By that they meant retaliatory. Isnt that what you are saying? Because it HAS NOT worked. And the only people growing ever more confident are the extremists precisely because we are NOT saying anything. Its not about waging jihad back. Simply stating I refuse to accept this crappy garb as normal is not waging jihad. Nor is pointing out the media practise here of supporting extremists. Ill have to disagree with you there. Though we agree to a degree in that excessive coverage of extremists will not help anyone. But I do not subscribe to the point of view you also seem to have ( i might be wrong) that we should ignore them, modify foreign policy and turn the other cheek. In order to get moderate voices out there and heard we are going to have to get a LOT ballsier.

either no one pays attention, or we are misunderstanding ...
What do you mean exactly by "we" and "they" are you talking politics?
I said I agree that the nagib is bsically stupid and has no place in either religion or society. And they should NOT be ignored! Where do you see me say that they should?

Ok well I got that you disagree with the niqab but i am misunderstanding you because i dont understand this bit: 'I try to say stop waging jihad back!'. Who are you suggesting is waging jihad back?

what the **** are they doing in the UK they have the right to return to whence they came and practise their relgion to their hearts content as far as I am concerned. They certainly don't know when they are well off so ...off is my reply.

It is unfortunate though that some women wear it because they have no choice, then Al Qaeda decides what their wearing of the niqab means in political terms and the poor cows caught in the middle are then tarnished by that definition.

A woman I know wears the niqab because she has to. I also know she is barely religious. The reasons why she does not fight back are not straight forward but her children's welfare features large in the consideration. She is not making a point - political or religious; it would be a shame to know she's likened to a terrorist, just to add to her woes.

I agree but there are those who wear this for theatre and in turn make women who are forced positions somehow vaild. It is interesting to read someone like Yasin Alibhai Browns take on this and why she as a liberal supports a ban. That is why i specified 'some women choose'. I dont believe for one minute that all women do but i think the fact that Al Q have stated this is useful in the continuing debate to rid ourselves of it. I am referring more readily to the kid we saw bleating on last year in the news and the kind of women i see wearing this in south london who i do know do this for effect. I believe that it should be attacked from every angle continuously until such a point where we realise as a society this isnt free expression in terms of clothing - it is either a political statement or cohersion. There is NO place for it in Britain where kids grown up seeing utter confusion on the meaning of equal rights.
