Shocker: IOC allows Saudi woman to compete in hijab

This was a foregone conclusion from the relentlessly dhimmi IOC. An update on this story. “Saudi woman allowed to compete in hijab,” by Michael Holden and Mohammed Abbas for Reuters, July 30:

LONDON (Reuters) – A female Saudi fighter will take part in the Olympic judo competition after being allowed to wear an Islamic headscarf, or hijab, of a specific design, officials said on Monday.

Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shaherkani is one of only two Saudi women to travel to London after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) lobbied the conservative Islamic kingdom to end its refusal to send women to the Games.

But she had said she would only compete if she was allowed to wear the hijab, and judo officials refused, saying it would be dangerous.

A Saudi National Olympic Committee spokeswoman said the committee, the IOC and the International Judo Federation (IJF) had now agreed on an acceptable form for the headscarf.

“They agreed on a design and she will compete wearing this design,” Razan Baker said, adding that she did not know how this design looked….

The IJF’s regulations for the Olympic Games state that no headgear can be worn, and the federation says there could be a danger to fighters if a hijab is inadvertently used for an otherwise legal strangulation grip.

    Well, what if the other judo opponent gets their big toe stuck in the face edge of the Saudi womans headgear and it could break Wojdans neck. Plus she won’t have the right look. Judo has a look. Oh well!!

    The factual assertion is that Saudi men have no self control. The remedy of covering only the Saudi women is incomplete. Instead, ban the Saudi men from getting anywhere near any women, until they can demonstrate self-control — or promise to control themselves.

    Is a Saudi man anything other than just a prick?

    The IOC have sent people home for less. They cannot make the saudi’s obey the rules of the games, but they can send home those that won’t do as everyone else does.
    Its time people stopped watching the games. Only a total bycott by the public will get the message across.
    As usual the public WON’T protest about anything and so will be seen as good Dhimmis by the Islamic nations.
    I’m sorry to say it, but anyone who watches or goes to the games after this is may as well convert to Islam. The games are now part of the Islamization process.

    I can understand the comments done in this forum , but the fact that a Saudi Women competing under the eyes of hundreds of millions of spectators from all over the world is a big blow to the Fundamentalist Saudi System which controls everything in Saudi Arabia …these women are being bashed harassed in nearly every Saudi forum on the internet …I believe that words of support and encouragement would be a better choice, I am confident that you will see that the appearance of these two Saudi Women at the London Olympics will shake up the Saudi Society and encourage Saudi Women to rebel against the oppression they are facing day to day in there society….

    Just leave it to the dhimmis to comply with orders of their Islamic masters!! What the hell is wrong with this pictures. The rules of any event, games or anything else are only for non-Muslims and not for Muslims. These IOC cowards should be ashamed of themselves!!

    What an international incident we are building to! Miss Pork Pie de-hijabbed by Israeli wrestler! And all on NBC, your Olympic network.

    Of the top 10 ranking members of the International Olympic Committee five are Arab Royalty, and only two are European Royalty.
    There is also a 6th Arab, an Omani of whom I can find very little. But as there are no legal political parties in Oman, I suppose he also is very much supportive of Royalty.

    Why not invite Muslimas to run in the 100 metres, the marathon and any other field event wearing a Burqa. Then the whole world would see what nonsense this garb is, and the religion that forces women to wear it!

    @ sooty
    No, you are, actually! Clown!

    Awrah or Awrat (Arabic: عورة‎) is a term used within Islam which denotes the intimate parts of the body, for both men and women, which must be covered with clothing. Exposing the awrah is unlawful in Islam and is regarded as sin. (Wikipedia)

    So, take it easy folks. Muslims need to cover their Awrah, just like their “prophet” used to do!!!

    Muhammad uncovered his thigh… and Anas saw “the whiteness of the thigh of the prophet”! Bukhari 1.8.367

    I seriously doubt that the head gear is secured well enough to servive some Olympic events. That said, the next thing Islam will demand will be to stop the compation while the Muslim gathers her head gear and puts it back on.

    This has gone on long enough, it’s time to call a spade a spade and a heart a heart. It’s time the truth is more respected than political correctness.

    Islam is what Islam is, which is an ideology that is barbaric, backwards, and not equal but believes it is superior to all other cultures, governments, and religions.

    Everytime any non-Islamic authority gives in to appease Islam, it encourages, more of the same. If you don’t want your children or grand children to submit to Islam, or be killed, you (we) should stand up for our values, laws, and beliefs right now.

    Islam is not my religion, ideology, or authority. I pray it never is the world authority.

  12. says

    Seems to me the obvious response from the other competitors is for ALL to come out with the same headgear. How can that be anything but fair? And, just for good measure they should all wear paste-on moustaches, so they can look just like her. Then pin her (his?) sorry, unqualified-to-compete muslim ass to the mat and send her back to islamic paradise on the next plane out…

  13. says

    There are so many *stupid, idiotic* things about this, it beggars belief.

    First: why the *hell* are the IOC lobbying the Saudis to allow women ‘athletes’ (I use the term reservedly) to compete ? Who gives a damn whether they do or don’t ? It’s not like they’ve got a hope in hell of winning anything anyway.

    Second: The IOC were told in *advance* this Wojdan Ali Seraj Abdulrahim Shaherkani (what a mouthful) wouldn’t compete *unless* she could wear her slave rag. *That* was the point to say, ”in that case, if you aren’t prepared to follow the rules of the sport, don’t bother coming.”

    But no: they allow her to come, accompanied by her owner, *then* say, she can’t compete in a slave rag.

    *Now*, they capitulate, and say she’ll be allowed to compete, in a ‘specially designed’ slave rag. Good Grief. She’s not even qualified, as she doesn’t have a black belt.

    Dumbledoresarmy hopes she’ll be flattened – I heartily concur, and am absolutely certain she will be. You’ve only got to look at that doughy, moustachioed face to see she’s done no serious training.

    However, when she is duly flattened, you can also bet the Saudis will raise the roof, whining and whinging, and probably demand a rematch, demanding her *flattener* wear a slave rag, or be in some way handicapped. At which point I hope the entire judo contingent walks off the floor, lodges myriad complaints, and raises a unholy *stink.*

    The IOC are a complete and utter disgrace.

    @ paul collins.

    You said:

    ”I’m sorry to say it, but anyone who watches or goes to the games after this is (sic) may as well convert to Islam. The games are now part of the Islamization process.”

    *Totally* disagree. Just because the IOC behaves like cowardly, shameful fools, is no reason to turn our backs on hundreds of young, hardworking, determined athletes, many of whom have made huge sacrifices in order to try for an Olympian medal. I watched our male gymnastics team get a Bronze after 100 years, and was bowled over by the hardwork and dedication shown by these young men. Ditto the women’s team.

    To see young, dedicated athletes from *civilised* countries, pitting themselves against each other, in a spirit of ”may the best man win” is uplifting and makes me proud. No way that is going to be spoiled by a bunch of cowardly dhimmi IOC officials, or whiny, pathetic, would be islamic supremacists. Screw ’em.

    shocker shocker… what is so shocker in this when most of them so scared of these criminals that they rather shiting in their pants than say no.

  15. says

    So, Nadim, are you arguing then that the plight of women in SA would be helped or harmed if the IOC and the whole wide world told the Saudi men that they are nothin’ but nuts?

    *Excellent*.

    Most of “skouti’s” ‘contributions’ are just as inane, by the way.

    Thanks for that info about ‘skouti’, graven.

    He/it strikes me as one of those IsabellaTheCrusader has characterised as a pimply little adolescent ‘sitting in his mummy’s basement’ while he plays on the computer.

    Strange, isn’t it. I’ve been spending some time lately ‘strolling through the archives’, as dumbledoresarmy puts it; ( I’m having trouble signing into typepad) I don’t think I have yet come across a mohammedan, or mohammedan apologist, who is able to string together a logical or consecutive argument, and not one who hasn’t at some point degenerated into spitting, vitriolic venom. ‘skouti’ dispenses with the first attempt, and goes straight to playground insults. Great advertisement for its ‘religion’ !

  18. says

    I’ll second your thanks to graven for her great memory, Jan. . ‘skoutie’s probably spent the last four years in a juvenile detention centre, hence the absence since 2008.

    Jan and London Jim, thanks. I’m not sure if having a memory for trolls is a blessing or a curse, but I do tend to recall these guys when they pop up again, even after long absenses.

    ………………………………

    This is so true, Jan. Even the ones who attempt to seem “reasonable” at first so often degenerate into name-calling and threats.

    But it shouldn’t be so surprising”after all, devout Muslims have no real cogent arguments to offer.

    Add this to Islam’s supremacism, irrationality, and deep-seated aggression, and pious Muslims “going postal” is to be expected.

    A creed spread and maintained at sword point seldom has to persuade, in any case…

    I’m sorry to hear that, Jan”I always look forward to reading your comments. But you’re right”you can learn a great deal from the archives here. I’ve read through quite a bit, but I certainly haven’t been through everything as Dumbledore’s Army has.
