French court overturns burkini ban after staged controversy over forced beach burkini removal, a post from Jihad Watch with reader’s comments

The French ban on burkinis has been a major headline issue, particularly the story about the woman having to take off her burkini covering right in front of four infidel cops, standing over her as she does so.

“‘Forced to strip,” went one headline, retweeted tens of thousands of times, propelling the issue to such heights that nary a credible news site didn’t cover it. It became such a political hot potato that France’s burkini ban was subsequently overturned by the highest court. Yet a French writer’s voice was heard in the midst of those controlled and terrorized into political correctness. She stated “If you’re upset by burkini cop image, you’ve have been sucked in by Islamist propaganda,” and also:

A belief shared by many is that this “victim” and the snapper wanted the police to intervene — the photos are brilliant Islamist propaganda. They will provoke and inflame, foster a resentful mindset among French Muslims and encourage the narrative of “victimisation” that cripples action on Islamic extremism.

Jihad Watch ran a story with the same premise yesterday, highlighting the manipulation of the victimology subterfuge by Islamic supremacists, intended specifically to drive the Islamophobia agenda to beat down critics. We quoted the Muslim Brotherhood Plan for North America outlined in its memorandum:

The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan [Muslim Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers

No surprise, Arabic Muslim social media was abuzz over the ban and the image of four infidel cops forcing a Muslim woman to remove her burkini.

The plot, the intended fallout, the Islamophobia narrative — all working swimmingly as France succumbs to dhimmitude.

“Provocative French writer says ‘If you’re upset by burkini cop image, you’ve have been sucked in by Islamist propaganda”, The Sun UK, August 2, 2016:

“THEY are the pictures that whipped the world up into a righteous fury.

The next shows the woman having to take off her tunic under the watchful eye of the cops, looming threateningly over her.

“Forced to strip”, went one headline, retweeted tens of thousands of times.

The chorus on social media was deafening. The poor woman only wanted a bit of sun and a swim, dressed as she pleased, and is subjected to this disgusting affront.

It has become a frequent collective howl, the outrage at secular France’s decision to ban burkinis on more than a dozen beaches to calm religious tension.

Yet the pictures also tell another story.

Most citizens support burkini ban

Look closer, especially at the photo taken BEFORE the police show up.

One shows the woman seemingly sleeping, alone, lying directly on the sand.

She has no book, no sun cream, no beach bag. Her clothes are not suited to swimming.

Another shows her sitting quietly, looking around, as if waiting for the police to come. Hoping for the police to come?

As one French Muslim journalist, Ahmed Meguini, tweeted under the picture: “It’s 35C! Off to the beach for a nap in the sun in my ski outfit, like, totally normally.”

The pictures — sold worldwide by an agency — are not credited. They are, however, professionally shot.

The photographer was there long before the incident.

A belief shared by many is that this “victim” and the snapper wanted the police to intervene — the photos are brilliant Islamist propaganda.

They will provoke and inflame, foster a resentful mindset among French Muslims and encourage the narrative of “victimisation” that cripples action on Islamic extremism.

Among those furious at the pictures is the Collectif Contre l’Islamophobie en France (CCIF) — an activist outfit that has taken the French State to court in a series of high-profile cases.

Its attempts to have the burkini beach bans declared illegal have lost in local courts but yesterday, it won the right to make a case in front of the Council of State, France’s highest administrative court.

But the truth is that most French citizens at both ends of the political spectrum SUPPORT the bans.

This includes French Muslims, especially women.

They agree with Laurence Rossignol, France’s Socialist women’s minister, who suggested burkinis were designed to “hide women’s bodies in order better to control them”.

To liberal Muslims — still the majority in France, where the burka has been banned since 2010 — the burkini is the latest of encroaching advances made by the ultra-conservative Salafist Muslims.

Other demands include school meals to be halal and for municipal swimming pools to segregate boys and girls….

…Burkinis serve as a painful reminder of an unwanted and extreme take on Islam.

    I subscribe to Die Welt, a German newspaper. I speak fairly fluent German and enjoy keeping up with their news (its so much ours too), especially after visiting last September after twenty-five years and becoming alarmed at Angela Merkel’s dangerous open border policy towards refugees….which then became anyone who wished to take advantage of the naivete of Western Europe.
    Well, I commented on the latest “burkina-on-the-beach” photo op and, in German, politely suggested that the woman had done so purposely to provoke the police and gain the news story she hoped for. I ended with “nut eine gedanken” , only a thought. They deemed it not acceptable.

    Burkini’s and any other muslim apparel that covers women [esp. the head], is a symbol of the male oppression of women, and nothing less. lt should be banned in any form, simply because slavery can’t exist in civilized society.

    “But the truth is that most French citizens at both ends of the political spectrum SUPPORT the bans”

    Yes, on the News today:

    89% of French ppl SUPPORT a ban.

    11% of ldiots oppose it.

    If law enforcement required a woman to remove any of her garments in public, I would consider that to be a bit rude. It looks as though the police have set themselves us to be knocked down. A better approach would have to simply eject her from the beach – fully clothed – because burkas are not allowed on the beach.

    he boasted of having been carried to heaven, and so delivered his country to iron and flame. He cut the throats of fathers and kidnapped daughters; and only gives to the defeated the choice of his religion or death
    Islam is assuredly nothing any man can excuse, at least if he was not born Muslim, or if superstition has not extinguished all natural light in him.

    This woman should have stayed away from the beach to show solidarity with the French people especially after those heinous terrorist attacks. But these Mohammedans have to have their own ways.

    They care about only their own when they are not busy killing each other.

    Someone with enough extra time and money should hand out free ham sandwiches to everyone on the beach, videotape it, and see what controversy that stirs up.

      Good idea. The French should show more concern toward the comfort of their guests at the beach. I was just thinking that instead of police coming to check on the woman it should have been paramedics. Ouch! Lying in the sand on a sunny 35C (95F) degree day while wearing so much dark clothing must have been …….. enervating (I love that word). At the very least one of the life guards should have brought her a complimentary cold pina colada or an icy margarita. (Only one to a sunbather, of course.)

    Police enforce the law of the land and the Jihadist sets up a photo for every other Jihadist to get ‘offended by’ so the can regress a law.

    Pam Geller just posted a photo of a beheaded university student who’s headless body was rigged as an IED. Where are the offended Muslims now? Somebody was killed so I guess the so called moderate Muslims just snicker to themselves and continue to breed and they’d probably only be offended if ISIS had not kill the poor man.

    The French were “set up” by the Islamic Propaganda Machine, & apparently it worked. The French Government, not the Gallic People, have a LOVE/HATE relationship with Muslim Scum.
    The Overthrow of the Ban on Burkinis, shows how readily the GOV gives into the Demands of their own Assassins.
    It would probably happen in the USA, too. The GOVS have already committed to Islam, but the CITIZENS ARE HAVING NONE OF THAT DEATH WISH.

    She was not nude according to the photo: here’s the thing as with the burka, hidden weapons, bombs, knives and who knows what else. This Islamic BS is getting out of hand and we the non Muslim will be sorry we did not stand our ground in any nation that has this Islamic BS going on. Simply Islam wins ans we lose.

    Islamic terrorists are at war with France. Jihadist organizations, like ISIS, and fundamentalist Islamic theocracies that support terrorism, like Arabia Saudi and Iran, force women to wear niqabs and burqas. Repression and subjugation of women is part of the enemy’s ideology. Muslim women in France wearing dark niqabs and burqas are showing support for the ideology of the enemy. If they were loyal to France they wouldn’t don the clothes Jihadist impose on women.

    Modesty is just an excuse these women use to justify wearing those gloomy clothes. They could wear other modest clothes, but colorful and happier, that blend better with the surroundings, instead they choose to wear those dark and gloomy burqas. The message they are sending is what side in this war they support.

    Western countries must fight the enemy’s ideology. This is a war and wars demand exceptional measures. Banning the burqa and niqab is an attempt of doing that, albeit the way it was implemented was myopic and clumsy. What is needed is a comprehensive plan and policy to combat the enemy’s ideology, including banning and punishing any public expression of support for the enemy’s ideology.

    The problem is that this war has been poorly articulated. Politicians and judges, executive and judiciary, must be in the same page. Western countries can not rely on liberal judges to win this war. The only thing worse than a liberal politician is a liberal judge.

    In my country liberal judges are releasing inmates because jails are in “inhuman” conditions and don’t want to send to jail small drug dealers.

    They’ve done a piece on this over at Fox…

    “Don’t be fooled, the burkini has nothing to do with Islam or faith”


    “I’m a conservative, an American, and a Muslim reformer. As a Muslim woman I was disappointed on Friday to see the France’s highest court overturn the burkini ban. For a liberal society, the decision means the protection of free expression. For watchdogs like myself who look to the horizon, we know this sets a second precedent: the acceptance of Islamist culture. Friday there were two wins: the first for a tolerant society and the second for Islamists waging a soft civilization jihad.”

      If a woman or anyone, for that matter, wants to wear a heavy black tent on the beach, why should I object? I suppose you could respond that they could have “anything” under that mountain of cloth – from an AK to a nuke – but you could hide the same thing in a big cooler or a folded up umbrella.
      What I do object to is the covering of the face in public. I think if I wore a ski mask or maybe a Joker mask, that the cops would pull me aside or over and question that, but I’ve been very uncomfortable when I was in a bank line waiting for a teller, and this person (female, male?) walks in with only a veiled slit for the eyes showing. That shouldn’t be allowed – nor should the Muslima in Florida who wanted her driver’s license photo be taken of her in the burka. Right. I think maybe the whole purpose of the photo is to be able to identify the person – and for a cop (male or female) to be able to compare that photo to the person who handed it to them. Otherwise, why demand photos from the rest of us.
      But demanding that a woman show her body is just plain insane. It’s undemocratic, anti-libertarian, and just plain weird of you to insist. Let them swelter in their own juices and smell like a goat – their husbands evidently like that.

    How shocking!! You would almost think those clever Muslims out-skunked those savvy Frenchmenbecause THEY DID FOLKS! You might even think they read the Rosa Parks Story. It was a set-up and Frenchmen you naught right into it. First why would you even toy with the idea of using male officers for an operation such as this? Are you short female officers? Secondly why remove these banned swim outfits? You know from the start that this is a losing operation. The Burkini is banned so you have Female officers approach violators inform them of the ban give them a choice leave the beach and change or leave the beach and don’t come back. Make no mistake the idealic photos and traitor journalists aren’t coincidences.

    You have to choose your battles. Is this one, so easily portrayed as repressive, the way to respond to mass attacks? Let the idiots sweat in their swaddling suits but crack down hard on hate speech, mosques. woman molestors and the Quran.

    Such an obvious set up of *Islamic victimization*, choreographed to the nth degree. Another victory for the creeping muslim assimilation of France and yet more erosion of liberty, egalite, fraternity.
    Very sad.

    “Suckered by Islamist propaganda”- yep, looks like an attention diverter while Islam outbreeds the infidels, outcreeps the infidel, out streetwises the infidel, outswerves the infidels mentally, and other allys.
    The infidel has to realize the fact that Islam intends to totally wipe the infidel from Earth in whatever and so many ways and on all possible levels.
    This is in the minds of virtually all Muslims, the only exceptions being apostates under the death penalty, who say this very thing about Islam.
    Muslims in the west are swerving things using any trick they can till the big take over day, which is being assisted by westerners who are either ignorant, scared of Islam, or some other reason.
    Who knows what’s being said behind closed doors.

    During the early time of Islam, the poor female slave used to appear naked or clothless. That was the only fashion those poor slaves had. If the France High Court had not stopped it, French bourgeois could have started a Modern slavery again by enslaving the women or forcing them to go naked around.
