“Veil-wearing Muslim women are part of our fight – al-Qaeda chief,” by Margaret Neighbour for the Scotsman:
AL-QAEDA’S deputy leader said yesterday that any Muslim woman who wears the veil in Western countries is a supporter in what he described as a fight between Islam and “Zionist Crusaders”.
The authenticity of the tape could not be verified, but it was posted on websites used by al-Qaeda and other insurgent groups in Iraq and the voice of speaker sounded like Zawahri’s. The statement – said to have been issued by al-Qaeda’s “media arm”
al-Sahab – praised Muslim women who insist on wearing the Islamic veil despite pressures not to in some Western lands.
He described anyone doing that as “a soldier in the battle of Islam against the Zionist- Crusader attack”.
There you have it — defending your own country’s values and norms of behavior is a Zionist-Crusader attack. Bad dhimmi!
