    In Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s book, Infidel, she speaks about her feelings at gradually shedding the layers of Muslim dress in her evolution into western society. She expressed shock that she was not attacked or raped as she had been warned by her culture. In Fawzia Koofi’s book, Letters to My Daughters, the MP in Afghanistan writes “Women all over the world must occasionally deal with unwanted attention from men, and for some women wearing a burka can be a way of avoiding that.”

    My comment is that I vehemently object to the implication and impression that my husband (or father/son/brother/friend) might be a man who has no self-control over his impulses and would force unwanted attention on a female. Western men might as well have tattoos on their foreheads marking them as potential rapists. Perhaps if men, when they meet a “covered” female could reassure them, they will not be raped or molested by them, Muslim women will be set free from the bondage of cant.

    That Muslim women exist in fear of men (strange and known) raping them is completely abhorrent in western society. Young girls being genitally mutilated ranks in that category too.

    It’s time for everybody, women and especially men, to pay attention to this creeping extremism, which, unfortunately by daily observance of world events, is becoming all too common. Wake up people.

    Yet a lonely christian preacher preaching the BIBLE is hauled away by, not one not two but three policemen.
    Yet this convert to Muslim is allowed to preach whatever ‘he’ wants without any interruption or hauling away by the policemen.

    What doess he have to say about gay pride parade, men and women in full nudity. I notice that the feminist are ‘bloody quiet’ to this preacher statement on women having to wear full length garbs. I guess that they are in favour of the preacher’s idea.
