Sarkozy’s problem with ‘burqa’

July 9, 2009 ·


Last month, backing an initiative put by 60 Jews and pro-Israel MPs – French President Nicholas Sarkozy attacked Muslim woman-dress by saying: “The issue of burqa is not a religious issue, it is a question of freedom and of woman’s dignity… I want to say solemnly that it will not be welcome on our territory…..” Now being given birth by a Jewish woman – Sarkozy should know that the most oppressive religion amongst Abrahamic faiths is Judaism – especially when it comes to women. Every male Jew is required to recite in his daily prayer: “Thanks G-d for not making me a Gentile, a Woman or a Slave”. Furthermore, in Orthodox Judaism a wife has no right to ask for divorce – and girl child born is considered to be “born nothing”.


But then, Sarkozy can argue that he follows his Fsather’s Christian faith - however, according to the Rabbanic law on Jewishness is that a person born to a Jewish mother is always Jewish no matter which man-made dogma he/she practice. For example, the great majority of World Zionist movement leaders including Theodor Herzl and Chaim Weizmann (first president of Zionist entity) were professed Atheists, but they dedicated their lives for the creation of the so-called “Jewish state”. One can also ignore the fact that Sarkozy has been accused of being a MOSSAD agent .


Sarkozy was hailed as the defender of secularism, liberalism and women’s rights by the western mainstream media – highlighting the “moderate voices” within Muslim world, which prefer western bikini over Muslim burqa. One of the Hindu leader who praised Sarkozy’s Islamophobic outburst but was not mentioned in the Zionist-controlled mainstream media – was Bal Thackeray of Shiv Sena, who has been intimidating girls on Valentine Day off and on and giving the ‘fatwa’ that girls should not wear jeans.


The ’self-denial’ is not only Sarkozy’s domain. India’s president Prathiba Patil is another living example. She recently stated that the ‘Ghunghat (Hijjab)’ in Rajasthan, which has been worn by both Muslim and non-Muslim women for centuries – was introduced by the Muslim kings for hidding the cruel treatment of their womanfolks. I wonder, what she think of why the Hindu ritual of “Sati (burning of wife alive along with her husband’s dead body)” was established – which is carried out in remote areas of India even today Or the dehumanizing nude pictures of women having sex in Hindu religious scripture (Kama Sutra) and Temple and half-naked young Hindu girls dancing in front of gods for their sexual pleasure – is not more degrading than the so-called Hijjab being an act of oppression. The Hindu religion and society allows pre-marital sex, extra-marital affairs and same-gender sex.


For example, gay activist, Ashok Row Kavi, recounts that when he was studying at the Ramakrishna Mission, a monk told him that the Mission was not a place to run away from himself, and that he should live boldly, ignoring social prejudices, and testing his actions to see if he was hurting anyone. Inspired by this advice, Ashok went on to publish the gay magazine Bombay Dost. In 2004, when Hindu scholar K. Surdarshan denounced homosexuality, Ashok wrote an open letter to him in the press, asking Sudrashan to study ancient Hindu scripture while calling himself “a faithful Hindu”.


The well-known Hindu intellectual, Deepak Chopra, was sailing smothly on Larry King Alive TV show on CNN (November 26, 2008) until he made the politically wrong statement: “The real Muslim will never carry out terrorism in the name of Allah”. This irked most of the Ziofacist and Hindufacist on internet – calling him an ignorant and supporter of Islamofascism.


Long before the Dawn of Islam (610 CE), Veiling and seclusion existed among Jewish, Christian and Persian communities. In ancient Mesopotamia veil of a woman was regarded as sign of respectability and status. So much so, that even after the WW I, some Jewish prostitutes used to wear veil in Germany while in public. Pictures of Mary, Jesus’ mother , show her wearing ‘chaoudar (Hijjab)’ and Catholic Nuns still wear veils.


Holy Qur’an demands that both believing men and women practice modesty in covering their bodies – both in public and private lives. It doesn’t prescribe a particular dress-style, which is left to local customs and climatic conditions. The so-called “burqa” is worn in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh only. The rest of Muslim world practice their own concept and style of covering women faces and other sex-erousing parts. Even the pictures put with Sarkozy’s whining by the Zionist media idiots were “burqa wearing Indian/Pakistani women” and not Muslim women living in France or other parts of Europe.


The great majority of Muslim women and even some non-Muslim women have found Hijjab and Muslim female clothing as “enlightening experience”. Spencer Wall 20, a Christian sociology and English senior took her acid test to find out what it’s like to walk as a Muslimah for a while. She recalls her experience in The Daily Texan (June 5, 2009) under the heading Covere life gives new perspective:


“This experience has taught me to respect a woman’s decision to stay at home with her children or wear Hijjab or go out and become CEOs…. It has taught me to show more devotion to my Christian faith by praying more often as Muslims do (5-times a day)….”


I would like to conclude by citing Sarkozy’s Canadian Jewish brother, Henry Makow PhD, whose website is under attack by Israel Lobby groups (B’nai Brith, Canadian Jewish Congress, etc.) wrote an interesting article in September 2002, titled Bikini vs Burka:


“The role of woman is at the heart of any culture. Apart from stealing Arab oil, the impending war in the Middle East is about stripping Arabs of their religion and culture, exchanging the burka for bikini….For me, the burqa represents a woman’s consecration to her husband and family. Only they see her. It confirms the privacy, exclusivity, and importance of domestic sphere. The Muslim woman’s focus is her home, the “nest” where her children are born and reared. She is the “home” maker, the taproot that sustain the spiritual life of the family, nurturing and training her children, providing refuge and support to her husband.


The bikinied (western) beauty queen struts practically naked in front of millions on TV. A feminist she belongs to herself. In practice, paradoxically, she is public property. She belongs to no one and everyone. She shops her body to the highest bidder. She is auctioning herself all the time.


Feminism (western) is another cruel New World Order hoax that has debauched American women and despoiled western civilization. It has ruined millions of lives and represents a lethal threat to Islam….”
