    Sports Illustrated has released its annual swimsuit issue and declared itself “proud” to present the first Muslim model to wear a hijab and “burkini” within its pages.The Somali-American model [Halima Aden] was born in Kenya at the Kakuma Refugee Camp, where she lived until the age of seven before moving to the United States. For her SI Swimsuit rookie spread, we couldn’t think of a more perfect place travel than her birth country, where she shot at Watamu Beach with photographer Yu Tsai.“I keep thinking [back] to six-year-old me who, in this same country, was in a refugee camp,” Halima said during her shoot. “So...

    The Islamification of Europe was dealt a blow Thursday as the Danish parliament voted yes to banning clothing that covers the face, including the burqa (the head to toe garment) and the niqab (a cloth covering the face) in public places. The center-right governing coalition’s bill received 75 votes in favor and 30 in opposition. 74 members of parliament were absent. The bill becomes law on August 1. It is being called the “Burqa Ban” and predictably, Muslims are upset. Widely known as the “Burqa Ban,” the measure is perceived by critics as targeting Muslim women who choose to...

    A widely-discussed proposal to ban public wearing of face-covering garments including the burqa and niqab is set to be voted on in Denmark’s parliament. Minister of Justice Sřren Pape Poulsen, who was scheduled to present the proposal in parliament for a first round of voting on Thursday, said that a passing of the proposal into law would not result in police forcibly removing women’s burqas. Women wearing the burqa in public would be fined or asked to go home, the minister told newspaper Politiken. “If they live nearby, they will be asked to go home,” Poulsen said. A further option...

    New restrictions come into force in Austria on Sunday banning the wearing of the full Islamic veil and other items concealing the face in public places and buildings.Exemptions "under certain conditions" include items like clown disguises "at cultural events", work wear such as medical masks, and scarves in cold weather, the government says. The restrictions are aimed at "ensuring the cohesion of society in an open society", it says. Violations will be punished with a fine of up to €150 ($177). "Acceptance and respect of Austrian values are basic conditions for successful cohabitation between the majority Austrian population and people...

    As a symbol of Islamic separatism, supremacism and misogyny, the Islamic burqa is hard to beat. Outside of the mosque, it's an affront to every Judeo-Christian sensibility to see it on the streets of the West, a giant middle finger to the host culture, and a promise of more Islam to come. So good on Austria for finally taking action: A law prohibiting any kind of full-face covering, known popularly as the “Burqa Ban,” takes effect Sunday in Austria, where the strong support for it portends potential political upheaval in the upcoming national election. Parties campaigning on an anti-migrant message...

    The northern region of Liguria on Tuesday announced plans to ban the Islamic face veil from hospitals and other public institutions, in a bid to “defend women’s freedom”. Regional president Giovanni Toti, of the Forza Italia party, described the burqa as “the worst symbol of the oppression of women”. He defended the ban against accusations that it is discriminatory and possibly anti-constitutional. “Those who live in Italy need to grasp and respect at least the minimum rules of equality between men and women,” said Toti, who proposed the measure together with Liguria’s health councillor, Sonia Viale of the far-right Northern...

    Members of the public are calling on Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) to remove controversial posters from its railway stations just days after right-wing campaigners launched their provocative publicity campaign. The poster, unveiled in railway stations on Monday, shows a woman wearing a burqa with the strapline “Uncontrolled naturalization? No to facilitated naturalization”. It was commissioned by a committee co-led by Swiss People’s Party (SVP) MP Andreas Glarner to oppose the forthcoming referendum on facilitated naturalization for third generation immigrants, which goes to the polls on February 12th. Opponents of the bill — which would make it easier for third generation...

    Angela Merkel is suddenly becoming more hawkish than Geert Wilders and Marine Le Pen. To everyone's surprise, the German chancellor is suddenly speaking out against the burqa. Not only does she think it's "unGerman" to wear one, but she even believes the burqa should be banned completely. That's rather surprising coming from a politician who has never hidden her support for the Grand Multicultural Idea. Angela Merkel has called for a burqa ban wherever “legally possible” and says the full Islamic veil is “not appropriate” in Germany. The German chancellor made the comments at a Christian Democratic Union (CDU) conference...

    Modesty and Beach Volleyball Msgr. Charles Pope • August 14, 2016 • One of the less edifying aspects of the Summer Olympics in Rio is the attire of the women’s beach volleyball players from Western countries. Most of the women wear a tiny bikini with the bottom being especially tiny. (I do not show a picture here because I deem it immodest to do so. Instead, I show a picture of some of the men, whose attire I mention below.) Embed from Getty Images  Frankly, playing volleyball in a tiny bikini seems quite unnecessary. I would argue that it...

    Several associations of judges in Germany have proposed a headscarf ban for judges and trainee lawyers, claiming that this is a necessary measure if neutrality is to be upheld in court. At present, the German Constitution does not ban citizens from wearing religious symbols. Only in Berlin does a ban exist for employees of city authorities. But two judicial organizations — the Association of German Administrative Judges and the German Association of Judges — as well as the Ministers for Justice in the states of Baden-Württemberg and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, are suggesting that judges and junior lawyers should be prevented from...

    A Turkish newspaper employee was tackled to the floor during an attack by burqa-clad women accusing the six-months pregnant victim of being a “Gulenist” and wearing “revealing” clothes that violate sharia law. The women were accompanied by a man who warned she was one of four other “targets” they would attack. Hazal Ölmez, an employee at the newspaper Evrensel, was walking home from work in Istanbul when three people, two of them women wearing burqas, slammed her to the floor. “Why are you wearing revealing clothes? You are a coup supporter and a Gülenist,” the group reportedly yelled at her....

    Adverts promoting negative body images will be banned across the Transport for London (TfL) network from next month. As part of his mayoral election manifesto Sadiq Khan pledged to ban adverts promoting "unhealthy or unrealistic" body images. The advertising watchdog received 378 complaints in 2015 about a weight-loss advert that asked customers if they were "beach body ready?" Mr Khan has now asked TfL to set up its own advertising steering group. The Protein World "beach body ready" promotional posters were defaced in Tube stations and a petition was started calling for the adverts to be banned, however the Advertising...

It is high time it came to an end,” Khan said. The mayor added, “Nobody should feel pressurised, while they travel on the Tube or bus, into unrealistic expectations surrounding their bodies and I want to send a clear message to the advertising industry about this.” Khan was not clear...

    An Al Jazeera America producer claimed that media photos of terrorist Tashfeen Malik without her face-covering burqa are “disrespectful to her culture.” Really? In a now-deleted tweet reported by Right Scoop, Hashem Said wrote “Come on ABC…the family attorney says #TashfeenMalik wore a burqa that covered her face, and you’re putting out pictures of her without it?” On Friday, ABC News published a photo of Malik, wife of Syed Rizwan Farook and half of the terror team that slaughtered 14 innocent people at a holiday party in San Bernardino, Calif. Wednesday.
