British Foreign Office Goes Full Tilt Dhimmwit

An-Nisa 4: 34 "As to those women On whose part ye fear disloyalty and ill -conduct, admonish them (first), (next) refuse to share beds, (and Last) beat them (lightly); but if they return to obedience, seek not against them means (of annoyance): For God is Most High, Great (above you all)

The UK's Foreign Office went Mohammedan last Thursday, encouraging staff to wear Islamic headscarves to mark "World Hijab Day." 

An internal email for the special event explained the reasoning behind the Foreign Office's willing dhimmitude, calling the hijab a promoter of "liberation, respect and security." Via CDR Salamander:

‘Muslim women, along with followers of many other religions, choose to wear the hijab. Many find liberation, respect and security through wearing it. #StrongInHijab. Join us for #WorldHijabDay.’

Muslim women choose to wear the hijab. What about those that don't but have to anyway, like the women of Iran, the Sudan and Saudi Arabia? Sure, the hijab's liberating insofar as wearing it saves you from being beaten, fined, imprisoned or having your face melted off in an acid attack. 

Britain's Foreign Office doesn't see that and chooses to ignore the Islamic oppression of women by pushing one of its most visible symbols.

Dhimmitude was defined by Bat Ye'or as "a behavior dictated by fear (terrorism), pacifism when aggressed, rather than resistance, servility because of cowardice and vulnerability. By their peaceful surrender to the Islamic army, they obtained the security for their life, belongings and religion, but they had to accept a condition of inferiority, spoliation and humiliation."

Good work, Whitehall Peopledarins, you've gone full tilt dhimmwit and it didn't even take a Muslim army to force you into it. 

How long before the Foreign Office requires all of its female staff to wear a hijab because, you know, workplace respect and security is important.

Especially in the absence of a beating.

I would have counted on female circumcision as part of the event. In Egypt they use broken glass or scissors, but in the UK they could use a knife (oh, I forgot, they're banned) - maybe nail clippers? That's the way to celebrate the Religion of Peace - not with a filthy rag on your head.

What's wrong with the Brits, LSP?

What happened to RULE BRITAINIA?

WTF? I can assure you had I and my friends heard of this event we would have gone in full hijab (added clown nose for me) and then done a striptease at the end (Bucks Fizz-style) and brought about the devils and their salacious glances. Missed a trick there.

Would Whitehall survive the Sloe Gin Rumba, Juliette?

What dhimmwits.

LSP said...

LL, I think part of the problem is all about votes...

A bit like California, come to think of it.

Another occasion to say goodbye to merry ole England and hello to the repressive Islamic State!

The possabilities are endless.

That Houri in a Hejab strolling down the sidewalk may actually be a biological male whose gender identity is female. And, Texas being Texas, he may be executing a concealed carry.

Don't be surprised if she greets you with a friendly pax vobiscum.

It's all very disconcerting, KPH.

Who knows what you'll meet walking down the street, Anon. We don't have many Muslims here in this town but quite a few Nepalese, oddly.

Gun rights.

Wouldn't it be politically correct if the English diocese bishops (both men and women) wore burkqas? I mean, if you want to fit in with the population, you should wear one. And if you opt for the waterproof variety, it's a raincoat as well! Say goodbye to clerical collars. Just go out in your unisex burqua.
