As I have said, I am not following the Olympics very closely, so I did not see the events mentioned in this article by Pierre Cassen posted at Novopress. Cassen, who is a founder of and contributor to Riposte Laïque, questions the motives behind the presence of veiled female participants in a sporting event purported to be not only secular but anti-religious.
The Islamization of the London Olympics does not stop. We had the story of the veiled Saudi judoka, who performed at a level unworthy of the Olympics, and the one about the veiled runner who ran the 400 meters in two minutes, when the best ones did it in 50 seconds. It is true that for Islamist countries like Saudi Arabia, it is difficult to forbid women from participating in sports and from watching a game, and at the same time to enroll veiled soldiers of Islam in international competitions.
We also have been treated to the veiled Barbie dolls, at the base of the podiums during the medals ceremonies, who, with the complicity of the Islamo-collaborators of the IOC, display their veil to the entire planet, demonstrating the Islam is everywhere.
Note: He does not say "Barbie dolls", he says "potiches", a French word designating a woman whose place in society is to look pretty and say nothing.
Why then should we be surprised in this context that for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games we have a veiled referee!
In beach volley ball (and one can wonder if this sport deserves to be in the Olympics), the Egyptian Amina Abdou Elsergany refereed, with her white veil hiding her hair, in an eighth final opposing two pair of European girls in superb bikinis.
One can wonder about the competence of this referee. Do they play beach volley ball in Egypt? Has she already officiated somewhere in another competition? If yes, was her head uncovered, or was she already dressed as a militant Islamist? Could she, dressed this way, referee competitors from Muslim countries, and could we trust her impartiality?
By allowing referees to wear a religious habit, the IOC once again violates the Olympic charter, and article 51, that forbids any political or religious propaganda. (…)
Note: It is actually article 50.3 of the Olympic charter that states:
- No kind of demonstration or political, religious or racial propaganda is permitted in any Olympic sites, venues or other areas.
In view of this it is interesting to note that an Australian boxer named Damien Hooper, has been reprimanded for wearing a tee-shirt depicting the Aboriginal flag. Although in 2000, at the Sydney Olympics, Cathy Freeman held both the Australian and Aboriginal flags after her victory and no one got upset.
The story about Hooper appears at The Nation, a leftist publication.
Slightly off-topic note: A reader has been sending me links to stories about the burka from the Telegraph. One deals with police injured during a row, and another about a woman charged with inciting a riot in Lille.
