Niqabs for Peace

In an earlier post, I talked about the hijab. Now it's time to think about the niqab.

The niqab, or face veil, is part of the hijab.

The Arabic is نِقاب. Say it: نِقاب.

I found a bizarre web site that offered skeevy, low-resolution close ups of Arab women's eyes, peering from behind the niqab. Herewith some of the less egregious photos...and a couple of others, less sketchy.

The second one doesn't have a niqab.

So sue me
