What the hell is happening to these women?Umma, sharia, fitna, jahiliya, hijab, niqab, abaya, jihad and now burkini: Islamism is imposing a disturbing vocabulary which has become familiar.
A hyper inclusive left is refusing to see burkini as an Islamist tool. It turns a blind eye to the repression of women that it symbolizes. Instead it is embracing it and turning it into a symbol of human rights to defend at all costs. The New York Times ran an article titled: “At the beach with my burkini”.
It is a culturally fanatic relativism with a heavy bias against Western civilization and it is fundamentally allergic to any “difference”. The burkini and the veil have now become symbols of a new frontier in the unstoppable conquest of human rights. It has become a political cause.
It is precisely because the Islamic veils radically contradict Western values that a relativistic and romantic Left defends them with such enthusiasm and energy, forgetting that Muslim women do not have a choice in the matter. Islamists have perfectly understood this dominant psychology among our élite, who are so terrified of being accused of “xenophobia”. Islamism hypnotizes Westerners and turns the burkini against them.
