* ‘I need a hijab to set me free, I need a hijab for my identity..’
* The howling and wincing from the ummah is just around the corner:
Islamic headscarves could soon be banned in the country’s airports.
The Sunday Telegraph reports the Federal Government is looking at the idea as a way of improving airport safety.
Security officers have raised the proposal concerned about headscarves that cover up a person’s identity.
France banned the scarves in schools in 2004 angering Muslims.
Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews is now reportedly consulting with airport security staff about the matter.
* Hijabbed female frisking nun
* There is an absurdity to this photo. And a hint that we would do better devoting our resources to searching those who are more likely to be threats.
But Dr Ameer Ali from the Federation of Islamic Councils says it’s just a racist stunt
“It is simply a desperate move by the government to find an issue to fight the election, nothing else.”
* Yes Ameer. Just tell us: which race is Islam again?
“If they say that the Muslim women are trying to hide something… I am asking the same question with the other people that dress up, the turban… the priest, the Christian nuns.”
* Sure Ali, sure. Because priests and nuns are notorious hijackers and suicide bombers who fly jets into buildings …Right?
* Ameer Ali is a notorious Muhammedan taqiyya doctor who wants to make Australia Islamic.
Dementi & caving in:
thanks to Mullah
Govt has no plans to ban Muslim scarfs
The federal government says it has no plans to ban the wearing of Islamic scarfs at Australian airports.
News Ltd papers reported on Sunday Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews’ office was considering prohibiting Muslim air travellers from wearing the hijab, burqa and other types of concealing scarfs, for security reasons.
The various traditional scarves are worn by Muslim women to cover their face, hair and neck.
“I can say that the minister’s office is absolutely not considering any such plan,” a spokeswoman for Mr Andrews said.
She said she did not believe the proposal was being considered by any federal government minister.
France sparked anger among its Muslim population in 2004 when it banned Islamic headscarves from schools.

I doubt it, but a belated response to “9/11” & Mo’s anti-infidel terror is better than nothing. Beats endless babbling about workchoices & greenhouses gases. Bring it on! Ban AFIC for starters.
l find this new regulation like a breath of fresh air! great going Aussies!
Im so thankfull the government is finally taking serious measures to protect the society from the followers of islam that they so kindly allowed into the country in large numbers. Just peachy.
Come to think of it, thats why they let the mohammedans in, in the first place, to create a crisis that they can pretend to solve just before the election. I’ll be telling the f###rs what I think of them on my voting form.
I dont understand how banning the Hijab from airports would improve airport security. Wouldn’t the anti-hijab regulation give extremists and jihadists one more excuse to hate this great country?, beside Iraq and Afghanistan war. I think it would also give the would-be-terrorists a good reason to become an extremist and jihadist. I am afraid this new regulation will help the extremist-recruiters build up their numbers.
What are Kevin Andrew’s motives? the timing tells me it is about getting more votes at the election.
I would love to see the Burqa (which is the extreme type and leaves only your eyes exposed) banned all over Australia….but not the normal scarf that lives your entire face exposed.
Latif said … “but not the normal scarf that lives your entire face exposed.”
The key is “… headscarves that cover up a personâ€™s identity.”
I doubt they will be seeking to ban all head scarves; merely those that mask identity, which could be concealing a fleeing jihadi, as happened in the UK not so long ago.
This great country was not build on head scarves.
The people of Australia find head scarves offensive.
The people of Australia will not ‘accept’ Islam
1. Those who hate us hate us anyhow. They are free to ship out.
2.They hate because of their belief-system, not because we assert our values, our culture and civilization.
3. If this regulation helps terrorists to build up their numbers, so be it. We will deal with them.
4. Jihadists should fear the law – its not for us to fear jihadists.
5. Extremists and jihadists should not be in this country.
What makes you different from extremist or radical Muslims?

Who gives a toss about his motives as long as the rising tide of Islam is squelched before Australia becomes Austrabia. We do not want to end up like the UK, France, Germany, Holland and all the rest of the former Europe – now Eurabia.
“The timing tells me it is about getting more votes at the election.” There you have it, Latif! An admission that people do not want Australia to be overtaken by Islamists otherwise why would you be concerned that ‘Kevin Andrew’s motives’ would garner MORE VOTES!
“I think it would also give the would-be-terrorists a good reason to become an extremist and jihadist. I am afraid this new regulation will help the extremist-recruiter build up their numbers.”
So, Latif, we should all relax and give-in to Islam so that we do not upset them and risk turning them into terrorists?
Heaven help Australia if Mr. Rudd is voted in. Leftoids are always, always Muslim appeasers.

Sounds like the start of a platform for a “No Sharia in Oz” party!
Can I join?
Re Kevin Andrews’ timing and motives. While it is good to have a healthy cynicism of politicians & their timing & motives, especially at election time, Kevin gives me the impression that there is more substance than show in his recent announcement on African immigration & assimilation, and now this possible banning of identity-concealing Islamic headwear.
It is a small, but sensible step, not a stunt, IMO. His recent address re “Migration, Economic Growth and Social Cohesion” shows a better grasp of the issues than most pollies on both sides
. ( http://www.minister.immi.gov.au/media/speeches/2007/ka07-11102007.htm )
From that article…
“The Australian people must be confident that immigration benefits Australia as a nation and that it in no way undermines our way of life.”
Sounds like bullshit to me.
Savitch said “Sounds like bullshit to me.”
Could well be. Andrews still has the “African community” seething with his recent comments about mainly Sudanese not integrating too well etc, & was jumped on by all and sundry … no problems, retract it, racist etc etc. Much of the African immigration has, of course, occurred under the Coalition, & will be a lasting legacy of the Howard years.
Apparently Noble Parkistan has now been joined by Maumaubyrnong, with African “youths” fighting & rampaging at the Highpoint shopping centre … Howard seems to be doing a sterling job of creating Banlieues in Oz, modelled upon the French experience … le carbecue, monsieur?
* The howling and wincing from the ummah is just around the corner:
No need to howl & seethe; the Government has “no plans” to ban hijab, burqa and other types of concealing scarfs … Sydney Morning Halal says so, so it must be true. Pity.
Off-topic but related article on “diversity” in salt Lake City with muslim cabbies taking over the SLC airport and establishing a “prayer” room …
Walsh: Religious respect has gone too far
No matter what we do they will find a way to twist it. What Andrews said about the African refugees mad them go even more ‘feral’. Don’t forget they were feral before that happened. Andrews gave them an excuse to blame someone else,IMHO.
I am sure immigration could be a big vote attractor, but I am also sure that no political party is going to do that – no guts! Who wants to be called racist and islamophobic?
Some of us here don’t mind the latter title:we have damn good reasons for it.
Gramfan said * Andrews gave them an excuse to blame someone else,IMHO.
Andrews at least had the stones to tackle it, & has my respect for that. I’m still trying to find the background to the original report on banning head scarves, & where it originated. Was Andrews misrepresented, or was he nobbled? Meanwhile, Canadian muslims want all women, muslim or infidel, to wear a pink hijab for breast cancer awareness …
Hijabs go pink for breast cancer
“Wearing a hijab doesn’t mean that you are any different from anybody else.”
So not wearing a hijab (in an airport or school or bus) also doesn’t mean that you are any different from anybody else? So it isn’t really a “race” or religion issue?
