'Walk a Mile in Her Hijab' day at public high school

On Wednesday, the Muslim Students Association (MSA) sponsored an event at Vernon Hills High School called “Walk a Mile in Her Hijab.”  As most readers know, the MSA is one of the most active and prominent front groups of the Muslim Brotherhood.  (Vernon Hills is an affluent suburb of Chicago.  The Muslim population is just under 1.5%, which is nearly double the national average.  In and around the area there are eight mosques and at least one Islamic school.)

The Daily Herald reports:

Vernon Hills High School senior Yasmeen Abdallah, who is a Muslim, carefully wrapped the traditional hijab around the head of junior Charli Mosley while she explained its purpose.

"You can't really understand or judge a person and their beliefs until you understand why they do it and what it's like for them to do what their [sic] doing," explained Abdallah, who is the president of the school's Muslim Student Association.

The "Walk a Mile in Her Hijab" event Wednesday, hosted by the 10-member organization, was designed to allow non-Muslim female students the opportunity to wear the head covering and gain a better understanding of the Muslim faith. "This event is to hopefully denounce negative stereotypes," Abdallah said.

Abdallah said the event was a good experience, one she hopes will become an annual event. A lot of the girls got positive feedback from other students and benefited from the experience, she said, despite one unknown male student who told a non-Muslim girl to take off the hijab as he passed in the hall.

Six members of the group spent the morning placing hijabs on 17 non-Muslim girls who wanted to participate in the project. They also talked about the meaning of the hijab and facets of the Muslim religion to students who approached them.

Would I love to have been a fly on the wall when those conversations took place!  I’m guessing there was a lot of talk about tolerance, peace, and how well women are treated, among a host of other main- and side-dish servings of taqiyya.

Teachers and students at the school were encouraged to ask questions about the hijab when they came across a student wearing one.

"I wanted to learn more about the religion, considering my uncle is also Muslim," Mosley said while wearing a red hijab. "With more people wearing a hijab around school, it could bring more acceptance to the religion and have more people become more aware."

Why are public schools concerned with people learning about religious garb?  And I’m curious: has the school ever held a day when male students were encouraged to wear yarmulkes or when non-Christians were urged to wear a cross?  Let me take a wild guess: no.  And there should not be any such activities.  I ask only because we so often see this lopsided capitulation to Muslims.

We’ve already got school trips to mosques (by the way, try Googling “school trip to synagogue” and see what you come up with) and students being taught about Islam – the whitewashed version.  And now this.  Which won’t be the end.  Not by a long shot.

The event was planned last May and was not in response to recent terrorists [sic] attacks in Paris or California, organizers said.

If true, this reveals how upside-down the world is, such that after Islamic terror attacks, there’s a push to enlighten everyone about the wonders of Islam, while non-believers who were slaughtered are relegated to dhimmi status even after their deaths, as Muslim victimization becomes a top concern.

Here’s a novel idea: how about if, after Islamic terror attacks, we teach our children about the teachings of the Quran that drive this barbaric behavior that one day may kill them?

Guillaume said Muslim Student Association members have told him they have been treated with respect at the school.

So why all the fuss if there’s been no problem?  Oh, I remember now.  One is either a fake victim or an anticipatory victim.  So Muslim students have been treated with respect, but you never know when there could be a backlash, so let’s wrap hijabs around the heads and faces of some non-Muslim girls.

The long arm of the Muslim Brotherhood arrived in Vernon Hills High School, and it appears that only one person – a student – had enough common sense and intuition to know something was amiss.

Guillaume expressed his admiration for the Muslim students, who he said have long searched for a way to communicate who they are and their experiences.

"I think it is a difficult time to be a Muslim student in our high school, in our community, and in America," he said. "I think this is an opportunity for our kids to embrace the Muslim community within the school. For other kids outside of this organization, to understanding what it's like for these girls to walk through our halls in this garment in a way that stands out from other kids. So, I'm proud of them."

Why must “kids embrace the Muslim community”?  And enough with the all too familiar tale of the poor Muslim outsider in need of understanding and acceptance.  Even though, as noted in the article, no one’s bothering them!  In fact, they’re treated with respect.  But it doesn’t matter.  The push toward sharia never sleeps, and it manifests in any and all ways, large and small, subtle and overt.  It continues to advance, gaining ground, while idiots don’t notice or care.  Until one day they will.  (Maybe.)

Of note, this is not the first time hijab jihad has reared its head in our schools.  This past year, similar events were scheduled and/or held in California and Ohio.  (See here, here, here, and here.)  I expect we will see a lot more of this as hijab jihad takes hold.  To learn more about the meaning of hijabs and how the symbol asserts itself around the world, see here, here, here, and an excellent video by Jamie Glazov here.
