  1. There is no reason to judge a hijab as anything but a headscarf that women choose to wear for their own reasons. Nobody's business.
  2. To respond to the OP ... Any OP that quotes something that says "...creeping sharia ..." isn't worth responding to. In Canada, women can cover their faces if they choose, for whatever reason they choose. The only people who object to women's free choices are controlling chauvinist pigs.
  3. Islamophobia in Canada

    PIK trolled ... "fixed" your post. Not allowed. You're in the clear. So ... this derailed thread is about Islamophobia . ..?
  4. I guess that's why some controlling men get abusive about what 'their' woman wears ... in every culture.
  5. The hijab is a head scarf. Like this: Of course the Queen is a desirable woman whose husband makes her hide herself ... right? And elderly Catholic women used to always wear veils to church to cover their faces ... so the priest doesn't get randy on them I guess. In other churches, hats with sexy veils betrayed 'fallen women' dressed too sexy for church. Brides still 'lift the veil' to present themselves to their husbands ... for sex. If a woman covers herself from head to foot, men will be leering at any glimpse of exposed skin or stocking. Women wear what women want to wear. Nobody's business.
  6. Of course, this isn't news to the Indigenous Mayan people, but researchers think they've "found" something: Huge Mayan city with pyramids found hidden under jungle High-tech mapping suggests 10 million people may have lived within the Maya Lowlands http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/technology/mayan-pyramids-1.4519863 Researchers using a high-tech aerial mapping technique have found tens of thousands of previously undetected Mayan houses, buildings, defence works and pyramids in the dense jungle of Guatemala's Peten region, suggesting that millions more people lived there than previously thought. The discoveries, which included industrial-sized agricultural fields and irrigation canals, were announced Thursday by an alliance of U.S., European and Guatemalan archaeologists working with Guatemala's Mayan Heritage and Nature Foundation. ... And the extensive defensive fences, ditch-and-rampart systems and irrigation canals suggest a highly organized workforce. "There's state involvement here, because we see large canals being dug that are re-directing natural water flows," said Thomas Garrison, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Ithaca College in New York. The 2,100 square kilometres (810 square miles) of mapping done vastly expands the area that was [previously known to be] intensively occupied by the Maya, whose culture flourished between roughly 1,000 BC and 900 AD. Their descendants still live in the region. Ancient Indigenous cosmopolitan cities of North America. Not 'nomads', not wandering 'hunter-gatherers', but sophisticated agricultural, technological, cultural societies and cities of millions of people. Fascinating!
  7. They don't. Women may dress sexy. But they do not dress to present themselves as objects for sex except sex by consent with whom they choose, when they choose and how they choose. Men who consider women sex objects because of the way they are dressed ... have a serious problem.
  8. America under President Trump

    Omni is right. Trump would get the finger in Canada, like Bush did but many many more. Like all white supremacists, he'd be chased out of town.
  9. WHO is the "Muslim" on mlw saying such things? Link pls.
  10. Oh Rue, you still flogging that dead horse? Two states is the only viable solution, Israel within it's legal borders. Waiting ... waiting ...
  11. Sounds like Christianity.
  12. Refugee crisis escalating

    http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/refugees/inside/apply-who.asp More info there. I am not sure whether those arriving are being processed as refugees, or as regular immigrants. It would be good to clarify that.
  13. Refugee crisis escalating

    Read the link I posted above.
  14. Refugee crisis escalating

    Obviously that's part of the screening process. Look it up.
  15. Refugee crisis escalating

    All of the refugees admitted to Canada have been screened in the camps in Europe and again here. https://www.thestar.com/news/immigration/2017/02/24/refugee-vetting-in-us-and-canada-already-extreme-experts-say.html
