We must never lose sight of the fact that, among the various propaganda tools of political Islam, (1) promotion of the veil and (2) playing the victim are favourite strategies. Thus, this fake news story is exactly the sort of hoax which can be used to guilt-trip the public and promote the false concept of “Islamophobia.” In the words of Tarek Fatah, “Why are 11-year-old girls wearing the hijab? We are a society that accommodates all, but not the Swastika or the KKK cone hat, but when it comes to the flag of the fascist Muslim Brotherhood, the hijab, we give it the benefit of the doubt.” Indeed, the veiling of young girls is a form of child abuse.
