Islamic “Modesty,” Edition # 5,721: A Picture’s Worth a Gazillion Words

By Debbie Schlussel
**** SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATE ****
Over the years, I’ve written on this site and elsewhere about that oxymoron called “Islamic modesty.” We were lectured about it by so-called conservative Jeff Jacoby and liberal ACLU-niks, with regard to female interrogators at Gitmo . . . because, you know, no other religion values modesty, just Islam. As I noted then, we saw the Islamic modesty on display at The Pink Pony strip club and with prostitutes, both of which were patronized by the 9/11 terrorists. (Read my column on this, “Sex and the Islamic Terrorist.”) And we’re often lectured by Muslims about how they need separate swimming sessions, beaches, gym hours at Harvard (and everywhere else), basketball audiences when Muslim women play, ridiculous-looking smurf outfits in the Olympics, etc., etc., ad nauseam.
Oh, and that’s not to mention the constant thing about how a Muslim woman needs to have her hair covered, lest a strand of unwashed hair turn on a sexually-starved Muslim male beast who can’t, unlike most humans, be expected to control his urges and impulses. Well, check it out. This picture says it all about Islamic modesty.

I’ve seen so many examples of Muslim women flaunting such “modesty”–with hijabs and niqabs (full-ninja face veils), while they wear tight clothes showing everything, low-rise jeans and low-cut blouses flouting the “don’t do crack” rule, cheat on their husbands (who are also cheating on them), and sleep around.
Yup, another “modest” HAMAS supporter in America flaunting her “modesty.” But, hey, so long as the hair is covered, right? The trite saying “A Picture’s worth 1,000 words,” is anachronistic. This picture speaks a gazillion about the hypocrisy of Islam, here in America and everywhere else.
Here’s a little tribute music to this latest example of Islamic modesty.
**** UPDATE: I just remembered–in Flint, Michigan, this Muslima would be arrested and/or ticketed for indecent exposure or disorderly conduct. To refresh your memory, here are the guidelines–I guess we non-Muslim Americans are more modest than Muslims after all:

And even if these Muslims were truly modest, it wouldn’t change anything. Just like the ‘conservative’ nitwits who praise Farrakhan for his alleged beliefs in modesty and anti-drug philosophy, and place undue weight on that, while passing on his anti-semitic and anti-civilization beliefs. In this case though, the beliefs in modesty themselves, are phony, so it’s so much the worse.

Absolute platinum! Modesty, my @$$! You can bet that this Muslima twit has the mouth of a Sailor on her, too.

Yiddish Steel on January 4, 2009 at 2:01 pm

I have yet to see an “Islamic” woman that doesn’t
make Helen Thomas look like a better alternative.
Everyone I come across while shopping is a total
“turn-off” ! How can they be such prolific baby
factories ???
P.S. Stop picking on conservatives !

Hawkins on January 4, 2009 at 2:05 pm

Contrast it with Orthodox Jewish women – who keep their hair covered and wear modest clothing. The difference is Islamic modesty is mainly for show. For Jews, its the real deal!

NormanF on January 4, 2009 at 2:07 pm

Once again Deb takes the smallest infraction and turns it into a smear. Just more pettiness.
Actually the outrage here should be the showing of the picture. Was this picture taken by a voyeur? The girl looks underage, is this really appropriate for this blog?
[NB: HARDLY THE SMALLEST INFRACTION IN THEIR WORLD. WHY THE HECK DO YOU THINK THEY SUE TO WEAR THAT DUMB SCARF ON THEIR HEADS? CLEARLY, THEY CLAIM IT'S A BIG DEAL. NOT SURE HOW YOU CAN TELL IF SHE'S UNDERAGE, BUT THE QUESTION YOU SHOULD BE ASKING IS NOT WHETHER IT'S APPROPRIATE FOR THIS SITE, BUT WHETHER LOW RISE JEANS AND A THONG ARE APPROPRIATE ATTIRE FOR A SUPPOSEDLY DEVOUT MUSLIM WHO THINKS A STRAND OF HER HAIR WILL TURN SOMEONE ON. I MEAN, REALLY, WHY IS A RELIGIOUS MUSLIM WOMAN WEARING A THONG? BECAUSE MONICA AND BILL AND STRIPPERS MADE IT FASHIONABLE? I THOUGHT THEY--MUSLIM WOMEN--WANT TO SHOW US THAT THEY ARE BETTER THAN US AND SO MUCH MORE MODEST, WHEN UNDERNEATH IT ALL, THEY ARE LITTLE BETTER THAN BRITNEY SPEARS. WAKE UP. DS]

Ignorant and stupid.

LOL, Debbie, you come up with some good stuff…

Jackson Pearson on January 4, 2009 at 3:43 pm

RE : ” The girl looks underage. ”
How can you tell from her rear ?????

Hawkins on January 4, 2009 at 3:48 pm

SHOULD HAVE TAKEN DOOR NUMBER ONE, DUDE.
What do we expect for a religion where “heaven” is a porn-shop and mega-brothel with their “god” as head pimp.

Debbie:
Of the family appropriate websites I frequently read, yours does have the best photos. Must keep your hit count high.
This photo could be more revealing than you think: put on your disinformation hat. The young girl is dating a Fellowship of Christian Athletes jock, but fears for her life from honor killing. The head-scarf is not for our consumption, but to protect herself from her father, brothers, cousinsÖ
Just as titillating as your photos is the suspicion that you are in fact a Mossad agent controlling the key events of the world while under cover of a Motown blogger. Cool! Serious. Keep up the fight!

I hope this doesn’t disintegrate into “thong wars”. Muslim Lady: “No that isn’t a thong I am wearing, it’s my backup slingshot.”

californiascreaming on January 4, 2009 at 11:30 pm

I also notice in the Livonia area, here in Michigan, that muslim women wear the head wrap but use EXCESSIVE amounts of make up. What’s up with that? A far cry from the full ninja or the other great outfit the “bee keeper”.

[HARDLY THE SMALLEST INFRACTION IN THEIR WORLD. WHY THE HECK DO YOU THINK THEY SUE TO WEAR THAT DUMB SCARF ON THEIR HEADS? CLEARLY, THEY CLAIM IT'S A BIG DEAL.]
I assume she could be a teenager because of her attire, size and shape. She may be wearing the scarf to please her parents. And look at the Muslim lady next to her, she doesn’t look immodest in any way.
[MUSLIM WOMEN--WANT TO SHOW US THAT THEY ARE BETTER THAN US AND SO MUCH MORE MODEST, WHEN UNDERNEATH IT ALL, THEY ARE LITTLE BETTER THAN BRITNEY SPEARS. WAKE UP. DS]
They are only following the precepts of their religion. Go back to sleep Deb.

Norman Blitzer on January 5, 2009 at 2:12 am

I think you guys have it all wrong. If she is like the Muslim women I have met and especially like the Persian women I have met, she is wearing the headscarf out of fear that she will be beat up by some wackadoo male. I’ll bet that she really just wants to go around in her jeans and be left alone. The Persian women I met used to wear the latest French fashions under their Chadors and go around with their hair done and made up. They needed to wear the stupid ‘full ninja costume’ to keep from getting attacked by the religious police. I don’t think it is the WOMEN we really need to worry about here…
(I would also bet that she would be embarrassed to have her thong sticking out. Her posture is to blame for that, not her religion :-) )

jn1965 on January 5, 2009 at 9:49 am

Actually “jn1965″, I think it’s you and the usual straining at gnats and swallowing camels Norman Blitzer who have it wrong. If if if if….it could be a picture of an alien from outerspace dressed up like a muslim, too.
Buy a clue. The point is we are lectured all the time how non muslims are infidels and decadent, while the evidence as Debbie points out and shows in the picture that they are just hypocrites.
It’s definitely true from my experience as I’ve known several muslim men and those guys are shameless skirt chasers over here.
jn1965, “I don’t think it is the WOMEN we really need to worry about here…”
You need to check out some of the pics Debbie has posted before showing the muslim broads in the streets celebrating when the West is hit in terror attacks.
I’m worried about all the muslim freaks, men, women, and children gaining power here and elsewhere.

Jeff_W on January 5, 2009 at 1:08 pm

B”H
People can have their different opinions on Muslim, Jewish, and Christian ideas on modesty. But this is an example of the hypocrisy which runs through various Muslim communities.
Here is Israel, sometimes I see that tight jeans and stiletto heals are ok, as long your hair is covered.
Go figure….

Ben-Yehudah on January 5, 2009 at 2:48 pm

“Here is Israel, sometimes I see that tight jeans and stiletto heals are ok, as long your hair is covered.”
When Israel wants to attack and take over our country then I’ll worry about them, which we know isn’t going to happen.
I don’t see Israel in the media calling us infidels.
I see no moral equivalence here.

Jeff_W on January 5, 2009 at 3:52 pm

I can see you are not educated enough to say something that you don’t know about muslims womens, they are educated of how they should hide their bodies they respect and honor their husband, they are modest, and shy.
There is no muslim women who cheat on her husband, you are just jealous of us because your society show women like a piece of meat, you ignorant you don’t know what you talking about, muslim are the first people who invent the soap, and algebra and many things that they took away from them.
I can see you just an ignorant journalist, before you write article you have to ask questions, don’t give your opinion next time. You hate islam One day you would wish you are muslim, that’s your message, you just a racist bitch. Act now before is too late.

L: “There is no muslim women who cheat on her husband”? Hilarious. They wear the hijab and niqab and cheat left and right. What are you smoking? DS

layal on October 31, 2009 at 5:10 pm

I do not think the woman in the picture intended for the public to see her underwear. Secondly, wearing a thong for her husband is her choice, and that does not make her less modest. Thirdly, the Holy Bible( 1st Corinthians) states that a wife should pray with her head covered in public. Fourthly, you can not accurately attack an entire religion, because of one person’s wardrobe malfunction.

Jamie Cramer on January 29, 2010 at 2:13 pm

I don’t really care about islamic modesty, but you sound like a jew.

You'r enemy on February 20, 2010 at 7:09 am

Debbie, you really should be more worried abt YOUR man looking at other women, in fact the non muslim men are often enchanted by the veiled women. The veiled women are doing YOU a favor coz when they cover, YOUR man doesnt go feasting his eyes. Or maybe you like your man checking out other women and then fantasising about them while he is ****ing you.

Nora on March 5, 2010 at 10:31 pm

im sorry but the writer of this article is plain dumb. obviously there are exceptions to rules just as there are non muslim people who value modesty and jewish people who are progressive and dont have ringlets and wigs. muslim people have varying degrees of devotion and while i agree its dumb to have a headscarf on AND show your lower back she probably didnt know she was doing it. so what if shes wearing a thong what islam forces people to wear granny pants now???

sadia on March 31, 2010 at 1:15 pm

I’m with Sadia on this,
really, you’re just out to hate on muslims for the sake of just plain hating on ‘em, it seems.
The girl’s lack of dress decorum is surely at fault here but you can’t go around generalizing all of Islam for a dumb girl’s mistake?
have some respect.

suroor on April 22, 2010 at 4:51 am

ur just racist. why dont u complain about some other religion and leave Islam alone. Noone asked you to write about this so dont. So leave them alone and care for ur own religion, look at people around you first and then think about talking how Muslim women aren’t “modest” cause honestly what 1 in 50 Muslim women are what you describe ok. So, please, just let it go

smiles on May 29, 2010 at 7:38 pm

Im sorry, but whoever posted this must be really narrow minded and against Islam. PLease do get your facts straight and stop using one picture to exploit ones religion like that. If you truly understood what a religion Islam is really like, there would be no need for stupidity such as this. One cannot base a fact on an opinion!

Tara on November 2, 2010 at 11:56 pm

everybody knows what islam is.islam doesn’t need to show or tell anything.
that is the reason why 17 people everyday converts to islam with their own.
other religion are jealous as they can’t compete with the rules and regulations of islam.
they don’t have any holy book which is original coz all of them are being changed by themselves only.
they don’t have powerful leaders like islan has neither they have any logical history of their religion.
quran shareef is the only book which has e’thng written of future and what science is proving today has been there in quran shareef since 560 a.d.
that is why it is the fastest growing religion in the world.
and whoever has written this article be afraid that u might also convert to islam in future (nobody knows) he he he he he he.

syed aamir moinuddin ali on February 4, 2011 at 7:19 am

You ninjas tell me, why aren’t (at least some) French Muslims complaining about head scarves being banned? Islam is one of the ‘babies’ of religion, so don’t demand respect until you do with Jews and Christians. Competing with the rules and regulations of Islam? Don’t be a show-off. What Nabi Muhammad did like fasting for 30 days was inspiring, NOT a rule. Oh look. There’s a portrait of your founder near your backyard! Who drew? I dare you to punish Sarkozy by death.
