Some Iranian women are boldly taking off the Islamic headscarfs

Here's some inspiring news in Iran:
The simple act of walking has become a display of defiance for a young Iranian woman who often moves in Tehran's streets without a compulsory headscarf, or hijab.

With every step, she risks harassment or even arrest by Iran's morality police whose job is to enforce the strict dress code imposed after the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

"I have to confess it is really, really scary," the 30-year-old fire-safety consultant said in a WhatsApp audio message, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of repercussions.

But she is also hopeful, saying she believes the authorities find it increasingly difficult to suppress protests as more women join in. "They are running after us, but cannot catch us," she said. "This is why we believe change is going to be made."

The hijab debate has further polarized Iranians at a time when the country is buckling under unprecedented US sanctions imposed since the Trump administration pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers last year. It's unclear to what extent the government can enforce hijab compliance amid an economic malaise, including a currency collapse and rising housing prices.

There's anecdotal evidence that more women are pushing back against the dress code, trying to redefine red lines as they test the response of the ruling Shiite Muslim clergy and their security agencies.
That's very good women in Iran are fighting back against an obscene form of oppression that only destroys societies and well-being. But the best way to stop these kind of horrors is to put a stop to Islam entirely. Let's hope this is a good omen in that sense.

QUESTION: When will Europe and North America
follow their example, and wisely ban the niqab?

“For over two decades, Qatar has been
fostering and advancing nearly every
terrorist organization that has murdered
Americans. It praised Osama bin Laden,
and after him Ayman Al-Zawahiri [leader of
Al-Qaeda after Osama bin Laden], to the skies.”

Two months before 9/11, on Qatar’s
state-run Al-Jazeera TV, bin Laden
was lionized in a show dedicated to him.

He was called “the No. 1 Arab and Islamic hero”
and “the conscience of the Arab and Islamic world.”

The program host underlined that as
“the nation thirsts deeply for someone
who will confront America...
not with words and slogans,”
and said that bin Laden was
“the right man for this important role.”

And indeed he was.
