You are wrong. You make a hysteria. Nobody is against a hijab. This was not a hate crime!!!!!!!!!! Stop to blame non muslims. We like a hijab. Get rid of the victim mentality. It is not good. People have no problem with the Irakis.They are a very nice and educated people. I have many friends. Your compaign with a hijab will make more harm.

This blame and hijabis march will divide people, not unite. Muslims should be united. Canada and US are nice to immigrants. They help them a lot. WE taxpayers are happy to help this peoples.It is our "zakat". Appreciate what doesn't exist in the muslim countries and don't critize others. Every community have good and bad people. You are in the trap of a media play.

The people who grow up in western countries grow up with a different mindset that started with the Greek philosiphers and mixed it with a completely different account of world history, specifically middle eastern, mix it with european and new world literature, more philosophy,sociology more variety of cultures but most importantly psychiatry and psychology. Only in the areas that had French and English infuence were there any interest in psychology. To this day you will not find much in the way of Muslims in Muslim countries "going to the therapist". There is no Dr. Phil or anyone else discussing marital issues on Arabic T.V.They don't read psychology books on relationship improvement. So what do people do when they want to raise their children and to have their wives "do things their way and they don't have such knowledge of interpersonal communications that the rest of the world is brought up with. They are ignorant of how to conduct relationships past the dark ages. So they tell what they want their family to do, if someone disopbeys, they hit them or kill them. That is what barbarians do and they don't see anything wrong with it. Before someone from a Muslim country is given a visa here or citizenship they should have to take a class on western culture, mostly on how to conduct relationships outside of the dark ages or mideivil times. Cloaking a woman in a black tent will not keep her from getting raped. Rape is about power and control for a man who feels he has none in his pathetic life. A rapist will break into the house of a 90 year old woman and rape her. That is not about sexual attraction. Rape is never the woman's fault. If big black tents are all about modesty and the men are modest too why don't the men wear the big black hot cumbersome dandgerous accident causing things? Men get raped. What about that? They should have to wear that thing.

I think they are very dangerous. Are they fire proof? Polyester melts quickly to the skin and all that wrapped around someone just looks like a fire trap to me. And black is such a negative color in the west. It traps the sun's heat. They look awfully hot, cumbersome-would make someone trip-not see well-difficult to look around and drive, especially the ones that cover the eyes they could cover up criminals on the wanted list, e hinder interpersonal communication. If they are so great why don't the men who are supposed to be modest wear them? What you wear has never been a deterrent of rape. Rape has never been about sexual attration. Muslims counties generally shun psychology but now that they are in western cultures maybe the individuals when they get to college will be exposed to psychology and how the mind really works. It will take some time. I think about that lovely woman and what she went through. She had a hard life, wearing that black tent all the time having kids at 15 and by the time she was 32 had 5 of them and beat to death! She did not deserve this. She was a ray of sunshine and she did her best to make the most of her life and gave all she could to her family, her community, her God, and to the country that took her in. She blessed us all. I pray for her. What a beautiful life that left here far too soon.

The number of anti-Muslim groups tripled in 2011, jumping from 10 groups in 2010 to 30 last year. That rapid growth in Islamophobia, marked by the vilification of Muslims by opportunistic politicians and anti-Muslim activists, began in August 2010, when controversy over a planned Islamic cultural center in lower Manhattan reached a fever pitch. Things got worse later in the year, when Oklahoma residents voted to amend the state constitution to forbid the use of Islamic Shariah law in state courts - a completely unnecessary change, given that the U.S. Constitution rules that out. The overheated atmosphere generated by these events also helped spur a 50% jump in the FBI's count of anti-Muslim hate crimes in 2010. Then, in March 2011, U.S. Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) held hearings on the radicalization of U.S. Muslims that seemed meant to demonize them. At the same time, there was a swelling of truly vicious propaganda like this remarkable Jan. 14, 2011, comment from columnist Debbie Schlussel: "They are animals, yes, but a lower form than the dog, as they won't learn to change their behavior for a carrot or a reward.

I am very surprised about this site against the Muslims. But, there were a few bunch of sheeps with the anger in their hearts. US and Canada have millions who are tolerant and respectful. Just ignore them.
