Saudi cleric favours one-eye veil
BBC ^ | 3 Oct 2008 | BBC

Posted on 01/17/2013 12:45:30 AM PST by Cronos

A Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye.

Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive.

The question of how much of her face a woman should cover is a controversial topic in many Muslim societies.

The niqab is more common in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf, but women in much of the Muslim Middle East wear a headscarf which covers only their hair.

Sheikh Habadan, an ultra-conservative cleric who is said to have wide influence among religious Saudis, was answering questions on the Muslim satellite channel al-Majd.

The two-eyed look remains too seductive for Sheikh Habadan

Should Mullah Omar be captured, he should be required to wear such a veil during his stay in Gitmo. Wrong eye, of course.

He should at least allow it to be their good eye.

If all of humanity were schoolchildren, these would be the ones that had to wear helmets in the cafeteria.

That’s something we really need.

A bunch of women running around with only one eye to see through insisting on their “right” to drive cars in America.

That depth perception thing is overrated anyway.

I don’t think that get up would be sanitary. When she bends over the bed that scarf is going to be brushing up against things and spreading germs.

Before we hear from the “One-eyed Conservative Women’s Club” I suppose we should make it plain that yes, some people cope with one eye very well.

My Son’s girlfriend is blind in one eye and she drives better than he does. BUT - She’s been that way her whole life. She’s learned to cope with her lack of depth perception. A lot of people do.

It’s a very different thing for someone with both eyes functioning to cover one up. It’s quite disconcerting.

And YES! I’d for sure like the nurse to be able to see what she’s doing when she goes to start the IV. I hope I don’t have to start slathering myself in bacon grease on every doctor visit. (Although I can think of worse things to do.....)

I hate to agree with this kook, but he ls right on one account. Some Arabic women have eyes that could seduce me at 100 yards.

Muzzies really are afraid of women.

Scantily clad and menstruating was apparently a VERY effective interrogation technique at GITMO until the Left freaked out and put a stop to it.

ROTFL!! Oh you can't make this stuff up.

They should make a burka with a mirrored sunglass visor over the eye hole... there problem solved.



Here's the burka of the future!
