Egypt drafts bill to ban the niqab, because it's a “Jewish tradition”

StaffRebel Columnist

A bill has been drafted in Egypt to ban the burka. Sounds good, right? Actually, it's because the burka is apparently a 'Jewish' tradition.

The bill, drafted by the Egyptian Parliament would ban women from wearing the burka and niqab in public places and government institutions.

According to The Independent, MP Amna Nosseir, professor of comparative jurisprudence at Al-Azhar University, has backed the claim.

She has argued it has non-Islamic origins and is in fact a Jewish tradition which appeared in the Arabian Peninsula prior to Islam.

Cairo University has already banned face veils for nurses in medical schools and in teaching hospitals. In addition, academic staff were banned from wearing it because students could not communicate properly with someone whose mouth is hidden behind a veil.

Next people will be blaming a Jew for the violence at Donald Trump rallies.

Canadian Mongrel you forgot about the other Islamic Scholar Sean Penson.

How to bring peace to the Middle East. Just tell all the Muslims every aspect of thier faith has its start in judaism. Problem solved.

Well if Trudeau finds this out he’ll ban them in Canada for sure. Now if they could just stop killing Christians they could be on to something. Actually I think turbans, niqabs, face veils and whatever were originally just ways to keep the sand and camel doo doo out of their faces.

Nothing new, really. Authoritative Islamic scholars have routinely asserted that the niqab is a pre-islamic cultural practice, not a religious requirement. And their expert opinions are routinely shouted down by the low-info heroes of western multiculturalism who insist that they know better.
As Bush, Sr. would say, “Read my lips.” When they insist that face covering is required by my religion, they are either ignorant or lying.

Common Sense coming from Egypt ? If the morons running Toronto agree with this article, their city might look like they are in North America again.

Well it is only obvious that everything in not just this galaxy but the entire universe is all the fault of the Jews. Weren’t the Jews responsible for the big meteor that hit the earth and killed the dinosaurs and I am pretty sure they caused the last ice age too, and of course it is only obvious they are responsible for global warming … well them, and Harper, of course.

As good a reason as any

If true this is too funny. I kind of wonder if Trudeau knew it was a Jewish tradition if he would have bothered to interject himself into the issue prior to the election or that the Niqab wearer’s upon learning this revelation would have told Trudeau don’t bother and as they whipped them off themselves.

Ban the Niqab, ban the Burka ! It would be a lot better to just ban the Burks.

In short, the Al Azhar University, which is the leading Massa rah of Islamic thought, is saying that niqabs and burqas are not religious requirements, but are cultural vestiges. Go figure.

Clearly, these leading Islamic scholars don’t know what they are talking about with respect to their religion. They need to consult with Junior, once he’s finished looking at his pictures from his selfie holiday in Washington, as to what the true meaning of niqab and burka are to the importance of Islam. He is the Canadian expert after all.

Whatever reason, if it was indeed a Jewish tradition, they had enough common sense to halt this insanity, so it’s definitely a step in the right direction as it should be.

Who gives a shit what excuse they use.

Banning this Saudi cultural export is a great step forward.
