* ‘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
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.
