    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...

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.

    The city of Long Beach has agreed to pay $85,000 to settle a federal lawsuit filed by a Muslim woman whose hijab was pulled off by a male officer while she was in police custody. The settlement, approved Tuesday, concludes the legal battle undertaken by Kirsty Powell, an African American Muslim. Her lawsuit, filed in 2016, prompted the Long Beach Police Department to reverse its policy barring inmates from wearing religious head coverings. “There really is no justification for taking off a person’s religious headgear,” said Powell’s attorney, Marwa Rifahie, who also works for the Greater Los Angeles Area Chapter...

    Social media meltdown follows questions over funds raised for Jewish cemeteries. Those of us following the news were unfortunately subjected to an unhealthy dose of Linda Sarsour this week. The self-promoting, egomaniacal, anti-Semite managed to deliberately stir a hornet’s nest with use of inflammatory rhetoric at a Muslim conference. In an address before the Islamic Society of North America, she called for a “Jihad” in the name of “Allah” against the Trump administration and encouraged her Muslim Brotherhood audience members (ISNA was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land-Hamas terror financing case) “not to assimilate and…not to please...
