    Do you prefer that your women make themselves as plain as possible by not wearing makeup or pretty eye glasses or contacts, too? I don't get that.

    Also, I would like to take up a collection to get that first woman's brows waxed. She looks like caterpillars are eating her face.

    Whenever I see a woman at the Wal-Mart with the full Muslim monty on (only the eyeslits), I just want to scream. Get the fuck out of my country, lady! It's like a big middle finger. It's weird and creepy. I don't want Cleveland to look like Tehran. Tehran can look like Tehran.

    I thought it was interesting to see how both veiled women dodged the question about why Muslim men are not required to cover their heads.

    Muslim women are instructed to cover their heads by the Quran and teachings of the Prophet.

    Muslim men are not told to do so.

    But Muslim men have to wear long sleeve shirts and are not allowed to wear shorts.

    it seemed to me that there was debate among the panel and among Muslim scholars over whether covering the head is necessary or whether modest dress is enough...

    Most Muslims agree that the scarf is mandatory.

    The veil is mainly a cultural tradition for most women from some countries.

    Muhammad's wives were the only women who were instructed to wear the veil.

    Some Muslim women want to be ultra religious, so they also wear the veil.
