The historical ongoing conflict in the Middle East is well documented. Christians and Muslims have failed to get along since Muhammad first began his conquest against all who opposed him. Following Jihadist theology, hordes of Muslims swept through Africa and the areas around the Mediterranean, nearly destroying the Byzantine Empire and threatening all of Christendom. They were only stopped by brave warriors like Charles Martel of the French and the Conquistadors in Spain. Otherwise there would have been no stopping them.
That was centuries ago, and yet the bitter rift between the cultures still exists. Islamic culture simply is not compatible with Christian culture. It is because of this, in addition to the devastation all across Europe from Islamic fundamentalists, that Morocco has decided to take steps in order to protect her people. They are banning the famous symbol of women’s oppression, the “burka.”
The full body garment worn by traditional Muslim woman covering the entire body including the face will now be banned.
The Interior Ministry ordered the ban effective immediately amid national security concerned that the garment makes a perfect decoy in transporting weapons, bombs and can even be employed by suicide bombers.
The ban had been purposed after reports that criminals dressing up in the burka were committing crimes and hiding their identity behind the full face veil.
The Ministry announced ‘We have taken the step of completely banning the import, manufacture and marketing of this garment in all the cities and towns of the kingdom.”
Morocco in general practices a more moderate forum of Islam, and most woman prefer wearing the hijab headscarf which is much the less severe then covering the entire face with only slit openings for the eyes.
Moreover authorities in the southern province of Taroudant have ordered all shops, either selling or making burgas to immediately begin liquidating their stock within 48-hours.
In Taroudant in southern Morocco, authorities ordered traders to stop making and selling burqas and to liquidate their stock within 48 hours, the reports said.
Wearing full veils in public has been a point of contention in Europe however after the mass carnage by radical Islamic extremist both France and Belgium have made it illegal to wear full veils in public.
Hopefully when President-elect Trump officially takes office on January 20th that the president’s security team puts measures into place also banning full body coverage.
