Bikini Vs. Burka

By: Henry Makow

On my wall, I have a picture of a Muslim woman shrouded in a burka.

Beside it is a picture of an American beauty contestant, wearing nothing but a bikini.

One woman is totally hidden from the public; the other is totally exposed. These two extremes say a great deal about the clash of so-called “civilizations.”

The role of woman is at the heart of any culture. Apart from stealing Arab oil, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are about stripping Muslims of their religion and culture, exchanging the burka for a bikini.

I am not an expert on the condition of Muslim women and I love feminine beauty too much to advocate the burka here. But I am defending some of the values that the burka represents for me.

For me, the burka represents a woman’s consecration to her husband and family. Only they see her.It affirms the privacy, exclusivity and importance of the domestic sphere.

The Muslim woman’s focus is her home, the “nest” where her children are born and reared. She is the “home” maker, the taproot that sustains the spiritual life of the family, nurturing and training her children, providing refuge and support to her husband.

In contrast, the bikinied American beauty queen struts practically naked in front of millions on TV. A feminist, she belongs to herself. In practice, paradoxically, she is public property. She belongs to no one and everyone. She shops her body to the highest bidder. She is auctioning herself all of the time.

In America, the cultural measure of a woman’s value is her sex appeal. (As this asset depreciates quickly, she is neurotically obsessed with appearance and plagued by weight problems.)

As an adolescent, her role model is Britney Spears, a singer whose act approximates a strip tease. From Britney, she learns that she will be loved only if she gives sex. Thus, she learns to “hook up” furtively rather than to demand patient courtship, love and marriage. As a result, dozens of males know her before her husband does. She loses her innocence, which is a part of her charm. She becomes hardened and calculating. Unable to love, she is unfit to receive her husband’s seed.

The feminine personality is founded on the emotional relationship between mother and baby. It is based on nurturing and self-sacrifice. Masculine nature is founded on the relationship between hunter and prey. It is based on aggression and reason.

Feminism deceives women to believe femininity has resulted in “oppression” and they should adopt male behavior instead. The result: a confused and aggressive woman with a large chip on her shoulder, unfit to become a wife or mother.

This is the goal of the NWO social engineers: undermine sexual identity and destroy the family, create social and personal dysfunction, and reduce population. In the “brave new world,” women are not supposed to be mothers and progenitors of the race. They are meant to be neutered, autonomous sex objects.

Liberating women is often given as an excuse for the war in Afghanistan. Liberating them to what? To Britney Spears? To low-rise “see-my-thong” pants? To the mutual masturbation that passes for sexuality in America? If they really cared about women, maybe they’d end the war.

Parenthood is the pinnacle of human development. It is the stage when we finally graduate from self-indulgence and become God’s surrogates: creating and nurturing new life. The New World Order does not want us to reach this level of maturity. Pornography is the substitute for marriage. We are to remain single: stunted, sex-starved and self-obsessed.

We are not meant to have a permanent “private” life. We are meant to remain lonely and isolated, in a state of perpetual courtship, dependent on consumer products for our identity.

This is especially destructive for woman. Her sexual attraction is a function of her fertility. As fertility declines, so does her sex appeal. If a woman devotes her prime years to becoming “independent,” she is not likely to find a permanent mate.

Her long-term personal fulfillment and happiness lies in making marriage and family her first priority.

Feminism is another cruel New World Order hoax that has debauched American women and despoiled Western civilization. It has ruined millions of lives and represents a lethal threat to Islam.

I am not advocating the burka but rather some of the values that it represents, specifically a woman’s consecration to her future husband and family, and the modesty and dignity this entails.

The burka and the bikini represent two extremes. The answer lies somewhere in the middle.

5 thoughts on “Bikini Vs. Burka

  1. Watch the movie “Osama” (The first movie made in Afghanistan – by an Afghan – after the fall of the Taliban.) It shows how the women do not want to wear the Burkas, but rather are forced by the women-hating extremists into wearing them (along with a multitude of other rules meant to deny them of any sense of self & dignity.)

    To deny them the right to wear a burka is one thing, but to argue that on the grounds that it is for the dignity of their family is not correct.

  2. Do you have a link for me to watch the movies. I searched various torrent sites and all I came up with was one in Swedish.

    So you contend that burkas are “forced” on woman because the muslims are “women hating”?

    Second question, which system do you prefer the burka or the bikini? Here woman are often sexually active by age 14, sleep with any man who wants to put in some effort at impressing her and winds up pregnant with the father not in sight by 18, surely you can’t be arguing for this even though these girls are “freer” and have such a sense of “self” than those in the middle east.

    So what is more important and in tact family structure or a sense of “self”?

  3. somehow i don’t buy that as much as taking away a woman right to be herself. to be hidden away because the muslim man is too weak and controlling. while he himself still lust and takes what he wants. there are two sides. hence the violence and murder in Sharia Law> it isn’t all roses for Muslim women although you would paint this. Islam much like any other religion has its flaws.

  4. Burka is a lot more then just a cloth covering a women from beigng exposed.
    First of all i should clear the point out that the movie my friend has reffered to is a political act to degrade sharia laws in the eyes of muslims them selves, the movie has no reality as far as islamic ethics or cultural importence is concerned.
    i agree that the concept of burqa is hard to understand for a non muslim but in essence it has far greater value then to just degreade women.
    I am from pakistan and a muslim and i know all these facts far too well to say that the burqa is just another piece of cloth.
    the sharia laws are so well formed that they have the ability to cleanse the community of all the criminal acts to a great extent. and burqa plays a great role in all of this. the above given picture is a clear demonstration of that.
    let me explain.
    watch the above given picture once more, when you look at the girl in bikini she is comletely exposed to you, 1. it makes you wish you could have her in bed 2. in your mind you could be on with her already.. thus the point that watching some one in such state makes you “hot”. now consider a criminal or a rapist is watching her, he gets “hot” she turns into the ally and he finds his chance..
    But here just think does any of those thoughts cross your mind while looking at the lady in burqa……..

    im pritty sure it doesent.
    thus the moral is that burqa not only keeps a girl safe from the hungry starving eyes of a man, but also keeps her from being liked by others which in essence keeps her home and family life safe… thus the muslim countries have a far lesser number of divorces and rapes then any other.
    i am extremely sorry that i couldnt provide any link for those statistics but im sure if you google them down youll find them for sure.
