Skip to comments.Was Woman Removed From Obama’s Rally Really Muslim? (Burka attire questioned)
Posted on 05/09/2012 9:36:29 AM PDT by kristinn
Comments and questions have poured forth after a woman was removed, said to be in a burqa, from President Obama campaign rally on Saturday.
Isti Arief , a PhD student at Virginia Commonwealth University, told CBS 6 she was elated to see another Muslim woman sitting a few rows in front of her at President Obamas re-election rally on Saturday.
However, Arief says when she looked much closer , she knew something was wrong, starting with the womans burqa.
It looked like more of a makeshift one. It wasnt even an official one said Arief.
Arief goes on to say because the woman completely covered her face and the not the rest of her body, the situation grew more perplexing.
A regular Muslim would know that no one would cover their face, wearing short sleeve, with a tattoo, and capri pants. Theres just something not right about that, says Arief.
Arief told CBS 6, this woman was just a few yards away from the President, and secret service agents ordered the woman to uncover her face in order to stay in the rally. Arief said when the woman didnt , she was escorted out of the building.

Hey! They gots ‘official’ burkas now!!
The secret service asked the lady to sit down first due to her inappropriate sign language jestures she was making towards the president. She claimed to be death but had no problem communicating with people around her. She didn't cooperate with them and police then escorted her out. I was sitting directly behind her during the rally and never heard anyone asking to take her veil off.
A growing number of female losers are wearing burkas to get attention and hopefully be able to sue someone for some thing.
Are we sure it was a woman at all?
Whoa, that station is gonna lose their affiliate status if they keep actually reporting and investigating. There is no way in the world that the Secret Service does not know that woman’s identity. None. If Obama was actually in the room with her sitting there like that, then I am convinced it was as staged as the people fainting during the first campaign.
What if she were poor and couldn’t afford to buy an official one and she had to make one.....?
So it is okay to attack the poor now? Thanks Democrats!
Hmmm...a terrorist could carry a mighty big bomb beneath a burka.
“.............cover their face, wearing short sleeve, with a tattoo, and capri pants. Theres just something not right about that, says Arief.”

Sacha Baron Cohen pimping for his next movie?
Everything involving this fraud is staged.
Why do I think it was a setup?? Because she should have been arrested.
So watch...he's going to do the same thing...
If she was death, glad she was not coming for me.
...inappropriate sign language jestures she was making towards the president.
Flashing gang signs? Too bad there isn't video showing that. Lots of info can be communicated in such a manner and it can only be understood by those who know what they mean.
Kind of like with the hand signals military units utilize. There's no need to speak when you know what it means. Something as simple as "a nod" in return could mean message received.
...never heard anyone asking to take her veil off.
So much for the "official" story.
Again, thanks for ping. A most interesting story and development to me.
Most noticable was the lack of a bomb belt. That was a dead give away.
A tattoo? Good grief.
Did she "faint" as well?
Any other President ever use anything other than the Presidential Seal?
Anybody else reminded of a high school campaign when you see pictures like this... no tie, no coat, no class...did he even shave??
Is he running for President or Prom Quee...er, King?
Liberals do not want liberty for anyone.
They would rather dictate what we do, what we buy, where we go and when, and what we can do while there.
The Republic you save may be your own.
Considering the early reports the burka/scarf had a military insignia, I wonder if it was someone who had an injury to her face such as burns or something like that?
OK, never mind about my last comment. I didn’t read this one yet. Sounds like she was just nuts.
Yeah, she looks like a Black Muslim to me rather than the standard variety.
