A Muslim woman was in for a bit more than she bargained after deciding to go on a little trip. Unfortunately for her, she was asked to remove her head covering in the airport so that officials could see her face, and after ignoring several orders to do so, the police came up with a counteroffer that she couldn’t refuse.
According to Bare Naked Islam, the incident took place at Brussels Airport in Belgium after a Muslim woman arrived from Tunis, Tunisia. As it turns out, the traveler was wearing traditional Islamic garb, including a head covering and a veil across her face.
Officials wanted to make sure she was who she said she was and politely asked for her to remove the cloth from her face to verify her identity. Unfortunately, that’s about the time that things went awry as the Muslim woman said that she wasn’t going to comply because the orders violated her religious compulsions.
Of course, airport officials weren’t about to just let her through, so they went back and forth with her until the police were eventually called. As one would imagine, things only got worse from there for the Muslim woman as the cops who arrived had a counteroffer that she couldn’t refuse.
The woman was dealt with swiftly and actually deported back to Tunisia after officers weren’t able to properly identify her. In short, if she didn’t want to follow the laws of the land, she could go back to where she came from. Of course, as news of the incident became public knowledge, the left quickly exploded with claims of “racism” and “xenophobia,” but their outrage isn’t likely to do any good since Belgium banned the full-face veil, niqab, and burqa in 2011.
In addition, those found to be in violation of the law can face either fines or up to seven days in jail for failing to comply. However, those consequences only apply if you’re already in the country. Those coming in still need to be vetted and accurately identified. After all, what good is a passport if you can’t see the person’s face to match the photo?
In the end, for someone to think that their religion comes above the safety and well-being of everyone else around them is beyond absurd. I mean, if officials did allow this ludicrous reality, what would stop a terrorist from borrowing a passport, dressing up as a woman, and coming into the country unhindered and unchecked?
Sadly, this is not the first time that a Muslim has done such a thing, and it won’t likely be the last. Members of the Islamic faith believe that their religious rules are higher than that of any country, and they will fight tooth and nail to force others to bend to their will.
If that doesn’t work, then there’s always a lawsuit for hundreds of millions of dollars soon to be in the works. Too bad for this Muslim woman, she picked the wrong country. Belgium officials have absolutely no sympathy for what is essentially the woman’s own fault, Al Jazeera reports.
Now, if only we could have leaders and officials in our country take a similar stance when it comes to upholding the law of the land. The people in America need to come above all else when it comes to this country’s priorities.
If American citizens are suffering or could be hurt, then why does the desire and feelings of a foreigner come before that? Our country is in bad shape right now, but I have a feeling we’ve made a turn for the better with President Donald Trump at the helm.
