Hijabbed in Afghanistan

No, this is not an April joke:

Afghanistan: American servicewomen encouraged to wear hijab to get closer to the local population

This will do the trick, all right. The Afghans will forget that the Americans are dirty kuffar and lay down their arms.

This is not the first time we have to report on this shameful display of inept dhimmitude: in Defeat Complete we already  showed you how the US military is being Islamized. ‘Sensitivity training’ & ‘outreach’ beats sanity and reason. And Diana West showed us just a few days ago that Islamic indoctrination is all the rage in the U.S. military.

Military dhimmitude: “Don’t forget your hijab, soldier! American servicewomen encouraged to wear headscarves in Afghanistan,” by Caroline May for The Daily Caller, March 31 (thanks to JW):

In an effort to get closer to the local population, American female soldiers stationed in Afghanistan are being encouraged to wear a Muslim headscarf when interacting with civilians. But some question whether the practice constitutes cultural sensitivity or a form of appeasement that is degrading to U.S. soldiers.

Gee, that’s a tough one.

Major Kyndra Rotunda, executive director of the Military Law and Policy Institute and AMVETS Legal Clinic, told The Daily Caller that while the women are not being ordered to wear the head scarf, encouragement is tantamount to a demand.“They say they are encouraging women to wear the headscarf when they are out and about and on patrol. But the problem is — and I think anyone who has been in the military understands that being encouraged to do something is about the same thing as being ordered — it really puts them in an uncomfortable position when their commander says, ‘We really want you to do this, technically you don’t have to, but we really want you to do this,’” she said.

Lt. Col. Michael Lawhorn, a U.S. Central Command spokesman, stressed to TheDC that while commanders are encouraging American women to wear headscarves while engaging with civilians, they are not having them wear the headscarf in lieu of their kevlar helmets.

“Nobody is saying, ‘Okay as we head out onto this dangerous street, you wear a hijab instead of your kevlar helmet,’” Lawhorn said. “As women are on some of these engagement teams and they are going to go into places where are going to predominantly be dealing with other women, like giving them medical information or finding out their concerns are in the local community. Local commanders are encouraging them — not demanding, but encouraging — if they feel more comfortable — ‘Feel free to wear a headscarf.’”

Rotunda remained unconvinced, telling TheDC that helmets are always the preferred head wear among soldiers.

“Even if it is outreach, you never know what to expect. You really should be wearing your kevlar helmet, it is a safety issue,” she said….

Uh, yeah.

  1. So this is Hussein Obama’s Democrat “Feminist equality” in the US Military?

    Will female US military personnel now be required to provide four male witnesses should they be raped by their captors ? will they be jailed for having sex out side of marriage if they are lucky enough to be rescued ?

    Are they allowed to go outside their barracks without been accompanied by a male relative ?

    Will it be a requirement of the Hussein Obama Regime that they be Circumcised so as to “fit in” with the local LOONS

    Someone get this DRUG Fucked IMBECILE, Hussein Obama,and his “Bro’s” out of the White House NOW, the Military MUST step in sooner than later and take this blithering idiot “into care”

  2. Sheik.
    I think we need to monitor the intel and correlate the number of islamist attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan over the next 8 months and compare with previous 3 years. I think that the number will spike this summer, and I think the reason will be the message that is being sent out by obama as a consequence of his involvement in Libya. The message is: we do not know what we are doing. Even at this early stage the NWF islamists are openly more confident and aggressive, and since they are not noted for their courage, the only reason can be their interpretation of what they are being told by their sympathisers in the West.

  3. yeah, that’s the ticket. I wonder, should forces in WWII fighting Hitler have worn the Swastikah? This is Alice in Wonderland. How about the American troops NOT wear these bags and how about Obeyme allow the troops to have more than three rounds of ammo in their guns and how about some shock and awe on the ground and just FIGHT FOR REAL already.

    Did these women know when they signed up they would have to look like Hefty bags? I am disgusted and sick of PC. If someone wrote this as a short story it wouldn’t even sell….after all, fiction has to be more truthful than truth to be readable.

  4. 1) How on earth is that going to protect them in event of bombing/gun attack/exploding homicide bomber,
    2) how close do they want to get to this population? Close enough to get stoned/hung/raped, for being women??
