The British Jewish media never stops fabricating lies to demonize over two million Muslim British citizens. The latest lie published by the Daily Mail on August 16, 2014, and instantly picked-up by pro-Israel neonazi organizations like the English Defense League (EDL) and the British First. Read a 2013 report on pro-Israel lobby activism in Britain here.
The Daily Mail reported the news under headline: “John Lewis’s new line, hijab to wear at schools: Department signs contract with schools in London and Liverpool to offer conservative Islamic clothing“. The article quoted former Liberal Democrat cabinet minister, MP Jeremy Browne, an open supporter of the Zionist entity. Last year he suggested that David Cameron government should rescue British Muslim women from hijab.
Steve Rose debunks the Daily Mail’s latest anti-Muslim bigotry at the British Islamophobia watch group, Tell MAMA.
John Lewis provides uniforms for 350 schools nationwide and two (less than one percent) requested the hijab as part of their uniform list.
One of the schools in question is the Islamia Girls’ School, an Islamic secondary school, owned by the Yusuf Islam Foundation. Ofsted rates the school as “outstanding” in every department and caters for just 152 full-time pupils.
The other is Belvedere Academy, a non-denominational girls’ school, which teaches over 700 pupils. In 2010, Ofsted rated the school as “outstanding”.
It might seem natural for an Islamic school to request a hijab as part of their uniform list. According to the John Lewis website, both schools list the hijab as an optional item of uniform.
Conflating various Islamic veils only muddies the debate. The hijab does not provoke as much public hostility as the burka or niqab.
Yet, a negative focus upon the hijab might distort the public debate around the religiosity of visible female Muslims, a group more likely to face violence and abuse at an online and offline level.
“Forget the minor business decision and its benefit for some Muslim customers. Instead, on a broader note, the drip of negative coverage risks redefining what it means to be Muslim in contemporary Britain, and further alienating those who visibly express their faith. What does it say about our society that such a minor story can generate such hostility? We risk losing all proportion on this issue as others fall for the seductive ‘othering’ of racism,” Steve Rose said.
In France a ban on wearing the full face veil, the niqab, in public places was introduced by President Nicolas Sarkozy’s (born to a Moroccan Jewish mother)government in 2010. The penalty for doing so can result in a 150 euro fine as well as forced instruction on French citizenship.
The European Court of Human Rights upheld the ban earlier this year, refusing to accept the arguments of a 24-year-old French woman that the ban violated her freedom of religion and expression.
In Zionist occupied Spain, Barcelona has introduced a similar ban, as have some towns and cities in Italy. In Muslim Spain (711-1492) Jewish communities lived their Golden Age. However, under Christian rule, some Christians consume Kill Jews drink during Easter celebration.
