Many nations that never had to deal with Islamic people are now faced with an overwhelming population; mostly due to the dumping of Syrian refugees.
Now in many European countries the Muslims are the majority of the population. Seeing them in their full religious clothing is something that has become normal.
However, several nations, due to Islam’s direct link to terrorism, feel these garments are a security risk because they can easily contain a suicide bomb or any number of weapons.
Austrian President Van der Bellen expressed a different idea during a panel discussion…
“If this continues … with the Islamophobia actually spreading, the day will come when we must ask all women to wear a headscarf – All – from solidarity to those who do it for religious reasons.”
Rrrriiight… easy for him to say because he won’t have to wear one.
Acclaimed as an ‘independent’ the Austrian President is an ex-socialist and green party member.
So it’s understandable that this logic is coming from what we would consider an extreme-liberal.
Austrian women, no matter the political affiliation, should be pissed off that their ‘president’ (more like a dictator now) is even suggesting an idea like this.
Why not force the ‘visitors’ of the country make the change instead?
Ladies of Austria, send your president a message and tell him where he can put that head-scarf.
