Original message I encountered a Muslim woman in my local supermarket this morning.


Edited on Fri Aug-27-10 04:09 PM by 11 Bravo
She was wearing a burka, fully veiled. No one was openly harassing her, but people were just avoiding her, while snickering behind her back. No one would look at her, and when she sought help from a stock boy, he acted as if she were invisible. I had no idea what to do, so I summoned up the sole bit of Arabic I know, approached her, and said, "As-Salaam-Alaikum" (Peace be unto you). All I could see were her eyes, but at that moment those eyes conveyed more genuine emotion than Glenn Beck at his weepy worst. I thought for a moment she was going to hug me. Of course, she did not, but she responded with the traditional "Alaikum salaam". At that point all I could do was shrug and tell her, "That's all I know". She simply nodded her head and said, "Thank you."
The entire encounter took maybe 30 seconds, but I can't stop thinking about it. Those lying mother-fuckers - Beck, Palin, Limbaugh, and the entire FoxNoise crew, can sputter to their heart's content that their rhetoric is not "anti-Islam", but this woman would probably beg to disagree, and she is bearing the brunt of their hate.

If the culture of her homeland is so fucking wonderful that she has to drag all of it's 7th century brilliance here with her - why the fuck didn't they stay in that medieval backwater in the first place?? :rolleyes:

How typical of the left: assume that any woman wearing an oppressive Muslim outfit in an American supermarket is an illiterate drudge. No one was harassing her because no one cares what she wears outside a court of law or nursing setting. I can't get help half the time in stores, so this is not Muslim-specific. Plenty of well educated women wear Muslim clothing to demonstrate their devotion to Islam; it's not a helplessness marker. Most Muslims don't even speak Arabic outside of a few stock phrases anyway.

If she really wanted to help, she should have asked the woman in plain English if she needed help. :rolleyes:

48. Help me out here...as a senior gay man, why should I respect a religion that wants to kill me
for being myself and that relegates women to ...4th class citizens? It's not as if christians are a lot better but I see a lot of support for Islamists here and given their positions on both women and gays, I can't imagine why any decent person would accord them the tiniest bit of respect. They want to kill me, I say fuck them.

Okay, which of you guys wrote this?

That's not really a muslim thing, it's more of a tribal african thing. Not that it doesn't happen to muslims, but Islam is not the source of female circumcision, tribal african customs are.

Actually, it does. A fully veiled woman isn't supposed to be out without male escort. If she was alone and he spoke to her, he risked violating her honor, something that her relatives could kill her over.

Of course, real multiculturalists know this (that's the whole point of studying other cultures), and stay clear, but they also know that a fully-veiled woman wouldn't be out without an escort, who would be the one asking for help.

I thought muslimas liked the anonymity of the burqa. Isn't that why they wear them? It makes them invisible. So are Americans at fault if it works?

They wear them because it hides a woman and prevents men from being aroused by her. Seriously. That's the logic of it, that female sexuality is so potent that no man can resist the sight of a woman's bare legs or arms or hair and not rape her.

WTF? Are you hearing yourself? :confused:
I hear him, and he's right. An article of clothing that, at best, hides the identity and creates a public security issue, and at worst, subjugates half the population (and not just Muslim women, as non-Muslim women in areas where it is worn end up adopting it in order to avoid harassment) is completely at odds with western culture, morals and principles of liberty. Wear of the full chador (a burka doesn't expose the eyes, so the DUmmies got another part of the culture wrong) isn't voluntary among Muslims women. It's imposed by their families and enforced by threats and violence.

Burka . . . chador . . . same difference. both are repressive - and both are unAmerican - and as you said - both are security risks. I for one would not allow someone like that into my place of business.

When ever I hear, "such and such should be outlawed", I wince. Too many stupid laws are on the books now. I see no reason to outlaw the burka. Do I agree with their use, NO. What you guys are advocating is the same as the Left...IMHO

Both are repressive, but the burka covers the eyes, while the chador doesn't. It's a subtle distinction, but demonstrates that the DUmmies, who pride themselves on their cultural senstivitiy, can't tell one Islamic garment from another.

Covering the face of a hot-bodied babe tells me that she's hiding something, like a mustache, or a unibrow. It's just another form of taqiyya, or deception to advance Islam, and it must be opposed on general principles.

She could be, as Rodney Dangerfield once said, a women who is a two-bagger. That's where you wear a bag over your head in case the one over her head breaks. :D
