Who is the terrorist here?

with 2 comments

I am member of the KKK.; I cover my face so that nobody recognises me when I am out killing and maiming folk that do not agree with me.

I am a Muslim lady who believes that my religion says I should cover my face.

Which law would you support?

  1. Thank goodness the KKK have no influence. But Islam does, and it does not require the lady to cover her face, just to dress modestly, which is not so terrible to ask of her. There is an argument that the burka is associated with oppression of women, but western feminists deny this.
    As for the KKK, it is an example of where religion can be perverted: the white sheets, they claim, represent the spirits of brave patriots who have sacrificed their lives etc.I don’t buy it.
    But one difference today is that we can criticize the white sheets and the men who wear them, but to make criticism of the burka is to invite prosecution for race hate and be labelled Islamophobic. I think this needs to be addressed in a sensible fair minded discussion. As for which law I would support, I would suggest we keep the law out of it, allow criticism without violent assault.

    • First point- I didn’t say Islam requires the woman to wear a burka; I said she believes her religion requires it, something quite different.

      As for the KKK not having influence, I think in some of the smaller towns in some of the Southern States of the US you will find people whose everyday life is influenced by fear of violent retribution should they dissent; agreed, that influence is minor in comparison to the influence Islam can and does have.

      My point is we point the finger and say ‘terrorist’ or ‘freedom fighter’ based on our own prejudices.

      I would argue that by definition, a terrorist is one who instils terror in anybody else. That definition could be applied to many situations where we wouldn’t, in normal parlance apply the word.
