Over the past few weeks we have learned that Norwegian police officers and judges may be allowed to wear Muslim headscarves while acting in their official capacities, and that a Muslim woman is touring schools instructing students on the wonders of wearing the veil.
Bruce Bawr writes that 20-something Aisha Shezadi Kausar has been lecturing students on the veil as a “feminist choice.” She claims the veil is part of her “struggle for freedom” (George Orwell is spinning) and that the only reasons for opposing veils are “prejudice” and “fear of foreigners.”
And the kicker, according to Bawr, is that the brainwashing sessions are sponsored not by some radical Muslim organization but by leftist literary groups.
Perhaps Ms. Kausar should also teach the girls that the headscarf or veil may save them from being raped. Norway has a rape epidemic, with police statistics showing it is mostly Muslim men raping white native Norwegian girls. Muslim men have said in Norwegian news reports that women who don’t wear a headscarf or veil are whores.
It is truly bizarre that leftists and feminists champion a religion, Islam, in which women have the legal status of minors,which reserves the right to beat or kill women with impugnity, and views non-Muslim women as whores. But it’s nothing new; we have seen this strange coalition since before 9/11. I have stood in anti-Iraq War demos in Trafalgar square with a Wahhabi on one side and pot-smoking leftist radical on other. Both hate Western civilization.
Although it’s an annoying organization with its detractors within France, it would be instructive for the Norwegian students to know that there is actually an ex-Muslim women’s group called Ni Putes Ni Soumises (Neither Whores Nor Submissives, because Muslim women who wear the headscarf or veil are submissive, and are not free, in the eyes of Islamic law. Those who do not wear them are whores.
Norway is probably the most acute case of radical Islamization in Western Europe. With a relatively tiny population of under 5-million, Norway’s leftist government has embraced Hamas and scorned Israel, and thrown wide the gates to the radical Muslim agenda.
