  • Women around the world burn their hijabs for #NoHijabDay

    Geller Report ^ | 2/7/18 | Pamela Geller
    This is the real women’s rights movement, while feminists in the West actively support the oppressors and name sharia-enforcers such as Linda Sarsour to their leadership. The left is evil. Posted online with the hashtag #NoHijabDay, a response to last week’s World Hijab Day event, the videos show women removing their headscarves and setting them on fire in front of the camera. For the millions of women and girls forced to wear the cover-up, such a tribute is ghastly.
  • L’Oréal Paris chooses anti-Semitic Amena Khan for its new campaign

    Pamela Gellar ^ | January 20, 2018 | Jean Patrick Grumberg
    THE MEDIA, WITH THE WILLFUL BLINDNESS THAT DEFINES THEM SO WELL, HAVE DECIDED TO APPLAUD L’ORÉAL’S CHOICE OF AMENA KHAN TO CELEBRATE DIVERSITY. They obviously decided to ignore that the young woman is an anti-Semitic of the worst kind. Unfortunately for Mainstream Media, we write what the press does not want us to write, we denounce what they want to hide, and we say what people do not want us to say. Thus, L’Oréal Paris decided to broaden its “representation of diversity” in one of its advertisements, using the services of the beautiful British blogger, model and cosmetics designer. The...

    From escaping Iran through the mountains as a Muslim refugee, to surviving domestic abuse and imprisonment in a Turkish prison, to carving out a life in Sweden, Annahita Parsan’s story is the stuff of a Hollywood movie. Parsan, a convert from Islam to Christianity and mother of two, has emerged as one of the most prominent religious figures in Europe, both because of her unlikely geographic and spiritual pilgrimage and her decision to reach out to Muslims with the gospel -- at great personal risk. *snip* On the heels of bringing a daughter she named Roksana into the world and...

    The Women’s March is facing intense pressure to come out in support of Iranian women protesting the fundamentalist Islamic regime. Women have become symbolic leaders of the protests, which are entering their sixth day, by removing their hijab in defiance of laws mandating they cover their faces and hair. One image that has gone viral shows a young woman standing above a crowd, waving her jettisoned white hijab like a flag. The death toll from the anti-government protests rose to 21 overnight, and at least 450 people have been arrested. The Women’s March is busy rolling out its anniversary protest...
  • Tehran Police: No More Arrests for Flouting [Islamic] Dress Code

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Police in Iran’s capital said Thursday they will no longer arrest women for failing to observe the Islamic dress code in place since the 1979 revolution. The announcement signaled an easing of punishments for violating the country’s conservative dress code, as called for by the young and reform-minded Iranians who helped re-elect President Hassan Rouhani, a relative moderate, earlier this year. But hard-liners opposed to easing such rules still dominate Iran’s security forces and judiciary, so it was unclear whether the change would be fully implemented.

    The facts at hand presumably speak for themselves, but a trifle more vulgarly, I suspect, than facts even usually do. Asmi Fathelbab, a former employee of the Arab American Association in New York when feminist heroine Linda Sarsour was its executive director, accused Sarsour Sarsour of dismissing her claims of sexual assault and harassment, and following through on threats to destroy Fathelbab’s attempts to get a job if she didn’t retract the charges. But Sarsour had no interest in, or patience for, Fathelbab’s allegations. “She called me a liar because ‘Something like this didn’t happen to women who looked like...

    Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour accused members of the “Jewish media” for her bad reputation, in an event entitled “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice” Tuesday night at New York City’s The New School.“If what you’re reading all day long, morning and night, in the Jewish media is that Linda Sarsour and Minister Farrakhan are the existential threats to the Jewish community, something really bad is gonna happen and we gonna miss the mark on it,” Sarsour remarked in an event intended to be “a discussion on how to combat” bigotry against Jews.It should be noted that Farrakhan once praised Adolf Hitler as...

    Ground-breaking research shows six in 10 Muslim wives in England and Wales are not legally marriedWhen Rukhsana Noor completed her online dating profile, she thought she had taken her first step towards finding love. In reality, she had set off on a path that would lead her to a lengthy legal battle that would cost her hundreds of thousands of pounds. Ms Noor had many good things in her life: a university education, a professional career and a good salary, but she had always dreamt of having children. As a single woman, she, like many other British Muslims, was...

    Time Magazine has added the Nike hijab to their “25 Best Inventions of 2017” list. In their list, Time claimed the $35 sports hijab “empowers Muslim athletes,” and placed the “invention” just below Apple’s iPhone X. “It’s tough to play sports in a hijab,” claimed Time. “If the material is too heavy, it causes excess sweating. If it’s too light, it might fall off during competition. And if it’s fastened in the wrong way, ‘you can feel like you’re going to choke,’ says Manal Rostom, an Egyptian runner based in the United Arab Emirates and the founder of the ‘Surviving...

    Meet Mattel’s latest doll: dressed conservatively, covered head to toe with only her hands and face visible. The fabric she wears is extra-thick, so there’s no chance of seeing skin. This Barbie wears no adornments. She also wears a hijab. This new Barbie has been spun by Mattel and the doll’s inspiration, Muslim Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, as “empowering” for young girls. Really? Growing up in Maplewood, New Jersey, Muhammad wasn’t an integrated American teen: Her parents insisted she cover up at all times, even when playing on volleyball and softball teams. In 2011, she told the Wall Street Journal...

    The woman who became the first US Olympian to compete wearing a hijab now has a Barbie modeled after her—and it's the first one to wear a headscarf in the doll's 58 years of existence. Bronze medalist and sabre competitor Ibtihaj Muhammad, 31, made headlines when she donned her hijab at the Rio Olympic games last year. Today, she unveiled the doll Mattel made in her honor as part of its 'Shero' line dedicated to inspirational women, which also includes Ava DuVernay, Ashley Graham, who hosted the doll's debut in New York City, Misty Copeland, and Gabby Douglas. Ibtihaj posed...

    A Frenchwoman nicknamed “Mama Jihad”, who traveled to Syria three times to support her jihadist son was handed a 10-year jail sentence on Friday in the latest case against parents of ISIS fighters. Christine Rivière, 51, was convicted of being part of a terrorist organization. She was given the maximum sentence for her “unfailing commitment” to jihad and for helping a number of young women travel to Syria as part of her attempts to find a bride for her son Tyler Vilus, with whom she was described as having an “inseparable relationship”. Vilus traveled to Syria to fight alongside the...

Suju, the wife of a jailed groomer, explained that she was afraid of her husband, but said of his white victims: “Filthy. How they dress. They have no shame, no fear of Allah.” In an interview with the Mail on Sunday, she was asked if it was ever okay to hurt young girls. She said: “No. You can’t hurt people. Allah does not want that.” However, she then added: “But it is...

    Saudi Arabia announced on Tuesday that it would allow women to drive, ending a longstanding policy that has become a global symbol of the repression of women in the ultraconservative kingdom. The change, which will take effect in June of next year, was announced on state television and in a simultaneous media event in Washington. The decision highlights the damage that the no-driving policy has done to the kingdom’s international reputation and its hopes for a public relations benefit from the reform.

    ONE Nation leader Pauline Hanson has turned up to Parliament wearing a full burqa. Pictures from the Senate on Thursday afternoon show Ms Hanson calmly taking her place in the chamber wearing the full body covering.

In a statement on her Facebook page the Senator she had attended Question Time “dressed modestly in a full burqa” and will later deliver a speech...
