From The Gathering Storm

So said a 24-year-old Muslim program scheduler at a broadcasting company in London. You would assume that wake-up call was a call to rise up against the fanatics of her faith who routinely murder innocent people day in and day out around the world. Or that ‘small minority’ of jihadists who have hijacked their religion. Wouldn’t you? I mean wouldn’t that be the rationale response?

But instead of wailing against those who have hijacked her religion, she saw 9/11 as a wake-up call to her faith.

Some who wear the niqab, particularly younger women who have taken it up recently, concede that it is a frontal expression of Islamic identity, which they have embraced since Sept. 11, 2001, as a form of rebellion against the policies of the Blair government in Iraq and at home.

“For me it is not just a piece of clothing, it’s an act of faith, it’s solidarity,” said a 24-year-old program scheduler at a broadcasting company in London, who would allow only her last name, Al Shaikh, to be printed, saying she wanted to protect her privacy. “9/11 was a wake-up call for young Muslims,” she said.


Meanwhile even with blatant examples of Muslim beliefs as this, Europe and America has hit the snooze button and with the help of liberal appeasers and apologists have gone back to sleep.
