They keep telling us how modest Islam is (it isn’t), how the men don’t judge women by their beauty (what beauty? and, yes, they do), and other idyllic myths Westerners are eager to believe about the Religion of Savagery.
But this story says it all and then some about all that. As reader DJ says, “I guess this Arab should have checked under the hood.” Indeed. (Plus, it’s hard to eat spaghetti–see video.) As longtime readers know, I call the Islamic face veil–the niqab–”the full ninja,” and for good reason.
An Arab ambassador called for an instant divorce after discovering his veil-wearing fiancée had a beard and was cross-eyed, it emerged today.

The would-be bride had hidden her face behind a Muslim niqab throughout their short courtship, meaning the diplomat had no idea what she looked like.
But as soon as the marriage was contract was signed in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, he tried to kiss her, before coming face-to-face with her hairy face and strange squint.
‘He was absolutely horrified,’ said a wedding guest.
‘The bride had a nice personality, but there was a good reason why she was hiding her looks behind a veil.
‘A divorce was inevitable, and the groom went straight to court leaving his new bride in floods of tears.’
The unnamed ambassador, who is in his 40s and has worked all over the world, including in Paris, told an Islamic Sharia court that he was tricked into the arranged marriage, Dubai’s official government newspaper reported.
He claimed the woman’s parents sent his own mother and and father pictures of her far more attractive sister.
I love the part about how she “had a nice personality.” One word: waxing.
If only they told us the dude’s name.
