Hijabgate - Marine Le Pen Puts Her Dignity Before Appeasing Islamist................from Daniel Thomas

The difference between a woman who puts her principles and dignity before votes and spineless appeasers who would sell both was made abundantly clear when French Presidential candidate, Marine Le Pen, refused to don a Muslim hijab to meet a representative of Islam.

During a visit to Lebanon she was scheduled to meet Sunni Muslim leader, the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian, who insisted Madam Le Pen don the oppressive headdress before appearing in his presence.

In solidarity with oppressed Muslim women the world over, and also to maintain her dignity and that of her country, she refused to comply.

Since Madam Le Pen had previously met the Grand Mufti of Al-Azhar in Cairo, Egypt without such a degrading requirement one can only assume that the Grand Mufti of Lebanon was using the meeting to demonstrate the dominance of Islam not only over women but also over a possible future President of France.

On the same visit she had meetings with the Christian President of Lebanon, Michel Aoun, the Sunni Prime Minister, Saad al- Harriri and the Maronite Patriarch of Antioch and the Levant, Cardinal Mar Bachara al-Rai, without any requirement to demean herself or France by surrendering her dignity.
