Mattel Toy Company is located in California so it is really no surprise that they chose to release a new ‘Hijab Barbie’ in an attempt to be politically correct…There’s a problem with this though:
The Barbie is modeled after American Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad whose focus is on Israel, not the crimes of Islam. As it turns out, she’s quite the hater of Israel but says nothing about Jihad.
Nope, not word one about the fact that half the women in many Muslim countries are slaves, chained up in Burqas, not allowed to decide who to marry, when to leave the house, who to spend time with, whether to get an education, whether or not to have female genital mutilation, etc.
So Americans just keep quiet and clueless as the oppressive hijab is normalized like it’s no big deal. IT IS A BIG DEAL!
This is a slap in the face to the millions of women who have NO CHOICE but to wear the head covering or fear death. Is oppression of women the “definition of a modern American woman”? Glamour Magazine’s Editor-In -Chief claims that the hijab is “modern”?
Here’s what was said at the release of the ‘Hijab Barbie’:
“The Barbie Shero Program recognizes women who break boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls and I am so excited to join this incredible group of women,” Muhammad wrote on Instagram. “I’m proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true.”
“Ibtihaj Muhammad has challenged every stereotype — which to me is the definition of a modern American woman,” Glamour’s Editor-in-Chief, Cindi Leive, said in a statement.
