The hijab debate: ‘I don’t want to be judged on my looks’Â
Â * It is usually the “reverts” who behave Â this way… confirmed Â here: “I reject beauty fascism”- another one “”I was brought up a Catholic …” or this one:Â “I wasn’t always Muslim. But seeing the hijab on a visit to Egypt 10 years ago opened my eyes. I asked one woman why she wore it and she said: ‘I want to be judged for what I do, not what I look like’…. Good luck to you, ladies!
Â Two pupils removed their veil to attend a Catholic school open day, but their Muslim teacher refused the request

A Muslim teacher was barred from visiting a Catholic college after refusing to remove her full-face veil so staff could identify her.
Now the school may face a claim of religious discrimination after the woman left rather than agreeing to reveal her face.
The teacher, who works at an Islamic school, was attending an open day at the sixth form college along with two teenage pupils, all of them wearing veils which left only their eyes visible.
They were asked to remove them as it was against the college policy – but while the girls complied, their teacher refused.
The incident, which happened in Jack Straw’s Blackburn constituency, comes as the issue of the full-face veil is once again at the centre of debate, and could see the school plunged into a court battle.

Britain mulls cutting arms sales to Israel as Hamas top dog prepares to address House of Lords
“No terrorism charges were brought, but still nine men are to be sent to Pakistan by a government trying to save face, Inayat Buglawala writes onÂ Comment is Free”
The absurd and suicidal thirst to appease the jihadists reaches new heights in Britain — and turns to a betrayal of Israel, as was inevitable. “Britain May Cut Arms to Israel; Hamas to Address Lords,” by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu forÂ Israel National News, April 21 (thanks toÂ Weasel Zippers): Another Claire Short initiative:
Britain is warming up to Hamas and blowing chilly winds towards Israel. Its government is considering a ban on arms exports to the Jewish state after legislators had demanded that British weapons parts not be used against Arab terrorists.Meanwhile, Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal is to address the House of Lords via video despite objections by the British government.
But not Geert Wilders. Oh, no. That would have promoted “extremism.”
