Who do you think is spreading the extremism?
The burqa is a symbol of slavery.
Every woman who puts one on is submitting herself to slavery.
Every man who supports his wife wearing such a monstrosity may think he is empowering himself, but that is a trick and a lie that has seduced him. He
chains himself to a prayer rug, that prevents him from taking the necessary actions to obtain the liberty that is his right as a man and a human
being, Granted by God. No free man gets on his knees daily and prays to a man who claimed to be the voice of god. A real man, when he chooses to
pray, prays directly to the actual God, who is everywhere, and it is between him and God, and no one else is inbetween.
Everything about Islam is a submission to the rich and powerful.
That was quite possibly the most ignorant and misguided post I have ever read in my LIFE. You really know NOTHING about Islam or their cultures, so
let's not try to jump to assumptions... Let me dissect your post piece by piece:
Poet: Who do you think is spreading the extremism?
Me: Actually, it was the BRITISH EMPIRE who helped make Wahabism popular and brought the Saud family to power!
It was the United states that founded and funded both the al Qaeda AND the Taliban all throughout the 80s and 90s.
The west has intentionally promoted extremism and used it as a political tool in order to destabilize strategic regions... But I guess facts are
irrelevant in your fantasy world.
Poet: The burqa is a symbol of slavery.
Me: Completely WRONG, if you mean "slavery to men". NO. The burqa is a symbol of slavery to ALLAH, and NOBODY else.
You completely fail to realize that a vast majority of women wearing it choose to by their OWN FREE WILL, with nobody forcing them. Usually their
families try to convince them NOT to wear it, because it has a lot of social and economic ramifications. You cant get a job wearing one, even in
Poet: Every woman who puts one on is submitting herself to slavery.
Me: Um..... Every woman wearing high heels and makeup is submitting herself to slavery to men. Women wearing a burqa DON'T WANT MEN TO LOOK AT THEM,
they are no longer a slave to trying to look good for men, instead they only care about ALLAH. Vast majority of the women start wearing burqa in
university, not because their family tells them to, and not because they are married.
Poet: All Muslims are a slave to Saudi Arabia
Me: Most ignorant statement I've ever heard in my life. You know, not all Muslims are Sunni. Shia Muslims HATE Saudia. Actually, MOST muslims HATE
Saudia because they are sycophantic Zionist enablers and in bed with the USA.
You really don't know ANYTHING about how Muslims think, then you think you are in a morally superior position to dictate to them that they shouldn't
"chain themselves to a rug and pray 5 times a day". WHO THE HELL ARE YOU to decide what other people should do with their religion? Typical American
fascist that thinks he's so superior and wants to push his ways on everybody else.
Your ignorance never fails to astound me.
