Israel's defense minister Avigdor Liberman has come under fire by Muslim organizations for a scene from a video wishing IDF soldiers a happy new year in which a Krav Maga instructor shows how to spot a terrorist hiding under a Burqa.
As you can see in the video below the whole concept was based on Sacha Baron Cohen’s segment from “Who Is America?”
The defense minister made it clear that he was just kidding and he had no intention of offending anyone.
[UnderMain] The whole idea of the hijab (and niqab) is that it is entirely the woman’s responsibility to prevent men from being tempted. She must cover herself in order to forestall that temptation.
In countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia, the Islamic veil symbolizes oppression of women under Sharia law.
Netherlands, France, Belgium and other Western countries and even Arab countries have banned the burqa and the niqab for security reasons.
The list of European countries adopting Burqa and Niqab bans has gained a new member.
Countries that already had such a ban include
– France
– Belgium
– Netherlands
– Bulgaria
– Austria
– Denmark
– Switzerland
Face-covering veils includes traditional headdresses like the burqa or nikab and other items concealing the face.
In countries that banned the full face veils it won't be allowed in schools, hospitals, inside admin buildings, on public transport and other public places or buildings.
The ban doesn’t prevent your head from being covered, just your face and identity.
Violators of tes ban could be fined up to 177 US dollars in Austria and up to €405 fine in the Netherlands.
In Muslim countries such as Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan The Islamic veil symbolizes oppression of women under Sharia laws.
There is no mention of an Islamic veil or burqa in the Koran. There are moderate Muslims who call to ban the burqa in the West.
