The story showed a smiling woman attired in hijab surrounded by words “ethics”, “integrity”, “respect”, “reliable”, “teamwork” and “ethics” rotating around her as she clicked a “Core Values” button in the centre.
It did make me wonder about the world of guilt and fantasy some of my more liberal colleagues live in.
I'm unfamiliar with the Toronto Star, but the image described is fully ridiculous.
This is best demonstrated by North America’s top protagonist of the hijab, U.S. Congresswomen Ilhan Omar who told Vogue magazine that wearing her hijab allows her to be a “walking billboard” … “To me, the hijab means power, liberation, beauty, and resistance,” she added.
Had the hijab been a symbol of piety, I doubt any Muslim woman would flaunt it while dating married men as is being alleged by a DC woman who claims Rep. Omar and her husband are having an affair.
Omar is not MY representative, nor my state's representative. I've not had time to worry about what sort of ridiculousness she is up to, due to my struggles with my own elected officials. However, inasmuch as she and what the POTUS calls "the gang" have attracted the interest of US wingnuts, I view most if not all "news" about her with a jaundiced eye as having a high potential to be fake news.
While Islamists and liberal Canadians fawn over hijabs, Yasmine Mohammed, an Egyptian shared a very unsympathetic judgment on that piece of cloth. She tweeted: “To me, the hijab means female subjugation, victim-blaming, and perpetuation of rape culture.”
A harsh view, but one that resonates with many Muslim victims of Islamism.
To me it's always been a no-brainer to see the hijab for what it is. It's not rocket science. Thus I find this to be a correct view that doubtless could be stated in even starker terms than these.
