Will French Court's overturning of ‘burkini’ ban restore sanity to France?

Crescent International

Dhu al-Qa'dah 23, 14372016-08-26

​​​​​​​European politicians in general and French politicians in particular have clearly taken leave of their senses. In their determination to control women's bodies, they insist Muslim women cannot wear the burkini, a swimsuit that covers their entire body. What is the problem with these men that are forever trying to undress women everywhere in the name of freedom when it fact they are sexual perverts?


When the fox preaches, look to your geese

Safar 19, 14372015-12-01

First we had the shock and upheaval of September 11, 2001 (9/11), with all its hype and hyper hoopla, followed by all sorts of “terrorist” tremors in Madrid, London, Egypt, Mumbai, etc. And now we have the Friday-the-13th bloody rampage in Paris; if we are smart enough to learn from past experience there will be terrorist after-shocks wherever the handlers of this phenomenon deem necessary for their national interests.

Safar 19, 14372015-12-01

Muslim students in French schools forced to wear colored discs for not eating pork!

Crescent International

Dhu al-Hijjah 14, 14362015-09-28

Pig is a filthy animal. Muslims and observant Jews do not consume its meat. In the West, especially in Europe, pig meat is much cherished. It is their choice but a school in France forced Muslim and Jewish students to wear colored discs so that canteen staff would not serve them pork meat at lunchtime. It outraged parents and revived memories of the Nazis' practice of forcing Jews to wear the yellow star during WWII.

Westerners’ obsession with niqab


Rabi' al-Thani 16, 14312010-04-01

Politicians in the West love to play wedge politics. Picking on the weakest members of society is their favourite ploy but the recent hysteria about niqab — the full facial and body covering, except an opening for the eyes, worn by some Muslim women — is quite out of proportion with what is perceived as a “threat” to Western freedoms and liberties...
