    All I am saying is that while I agree 110% with your point, that it could have very well been a case of discrimination, I have to question her disposition in the situation. She could have been in actual contempt of court and the media jumped on this as a scandal related to the initiating offense... I.E. religious connotations. If she was told to remove her scarf for inspection, for legitimate security reasons and turned and walked away cursing under her breath, etc at the security officer and then that officer took her in-front of the judge and she continued to be unruly, she deserved what she got. I think we are seeing media spin towards the sensationalism.

    IMO, religious freedom does not impart the right to hold any and all notions as religious absolutes.

    EXACTLY!!!! I don't think we have the right to go expressing our personal beliefs in formal gatherings, period. Let alone making those expressions in a secular court.

    So do you think you have the right to enter the whitehouse on a civilian tour in a full burka without getting checked?

    "A Muslim woman arrested for refusing to take off her head scarf at a courthouse security checkpoint"



    she was not told to keep it off, they told her as they tell everyong to remove thier headware as they go through security.

    And quite rightly too, she was being ridiculous

    Laila, I have been reading about Somaliland. I hope your home country gets the recognition it deserves. It is proof that Islam and Democracy are indeed compatible.

    In America it is disrespectful to wear a hat or head covering in a courtroom.

    The real question posed by this story is whether American law or Islamic law must give way when the two conflict.

    You know what they say " when in Rome do as the Romans do" if its against your religion then stay the hell out of Rome.
    ...yup, I thought so....this isn't about the scarf at all, this is about complying with security.

    I care even less about Muslim suffrage as a result of this story.

    Thank you Sgt =]
    We'll get recognized eventually, just a matter of 'when'.
