Muslim Cadet Refuses To Remove Hijab, Military College Wipes Smug Grin Off Her Face

Muslims have no respect for American culture or history, and they have no intention to assimilate. Luckily, our military is not prepared to appease any Muslim demands.

A Muslim student, who is about to attend a historic military academy in South Carolina, is attempting to force the school to allow her to wear a hijab. The school refused her request and told her she is not above the rules. 

The military college, the Citadel, has a long history and has operated as a school for 175 years. It has not allowed an exception to the dress code once in its entire history.

Now, an entitled Muslim student is demanding the school break tradition and guidelines to support her religion and protect her feelings.

The Citadel’s dress code is strict. Students are required to be in uniform at all times while on campus, with only two exceptions. They may wear bathing suits while swimming, and be out of uniform during a furlough, which only upper-year students enjoy.

The academy’s president announced the decision earlier this week explaining that, “The standardization of cadets in apparel, overall appearance, actions, and privileges is essential to the learning goals and objectives of the college.”

“This process reflects an initial relinquishing of self, during which cadets learn the value of teamwork to function as a single unit,” the president said, justifying the almost two-century long guideline.

The Citadel allows for religious accommodation so long as it does not undermine the objectives of the school such as morale, health and safety, or good order. Breaking unit cohesion for a head scarf is not acceptable.

The Muslim student is not accepting the school’s decision in good spirit. Instead, she is suing the school with the support of the terror-funded Council of American-Islamic Relations. She says the lawsuit will go through unless the school allows her to attend in a hijab.

The Muslim-led attack on our historic institutions is being launched in an attempt to undermine our history. Muslims have convinced short-sided liberals to abandon their principles in the name of protecting the supposedly oppressed.

The Muslims are not fighting for equality, as the school policy treats people of all faiths equally. Instead, they demand special privileges for only themselves. This is a part of the process known as creeping Sharia, where Muslims are able to trick a country into adopting Sharia law one principle at a time.

The school informed the student that they are happy to have her attend if she arrives bareheaded, which is more than fair. Our military doesn’t make exceptions for ANYONE, and that’s one of the reasons it’s the best in the world!

Do you agree with the school in blocking the Muslim’s demand? Please share the story on Facebook and tell us what you think because we want to hear YOUR voice!

    Its not a case of one rule change, Muslims walk in and expect/demand every consideration and change of traditions and things that are infinitely American,…and its done to make a mockery of America and her lifestyle. Its an invasion, ….to divide and conquer. Stand strong my friends, Do not let it happen, Not one little thing.

      I wonder why in the hell they ever considered her as a candidate in the first place. There is no difference between a Muslim in South Carolina and one in any of the Muslim countries.

        If she can’t respect our code of dress then she evidently does not want to be there except to stir up trouble. She should be barred from the college and needs to be sent out the door for not following the rules.. It’s like she is there as a spy to break down our military.

        First of all, I want everyone to know THIS SCHOOL IS NOT MY ALMA MATER WEST POINT!

        It is the Citadel, a private military school. You might think there is a close bond between us but there is not. They buy our cadet uniforms after we graduate. That our relationship. They have produced many excellent Army officers, among them George Marshall, a very great general and a great American. It’s a good school–if this story is true, they just have an attitude problem. An attitude problem General George Patton, my roommate at West Point, would “adjust” for them. Georgie (that’s what his friends and roommates call him) went to the Citadel for one year as a prep school before enrolling at West Point.

        As to the conservative BS, we don’t have that in the US Army or at West Point. Muslims are welcome and as of 2017 so are hijabs for women and turbans for Sikh men.

        West Point is a 21st century school that promotes leadership and 21st century progressive thinking along with respect for the past. It was founded by George Washington and built by Thomas Jefferson. They were both slave owners. As much as West Point honors them, it does not honor their slaveholding. Neither do we honor the self-proclaimed “patriotism” of those who announce that anything not white Christian and male is un-American.

          June 21, 2017 at 9:22 pm

          Bob, You say that you were Patton’s roommate at West Point. I’m calling Bull Shit on you. George S. Patton was born on November 11, 1885, and attended West Point from 1904 to 1909. If Patton was still alive in five months George Patton would be 132 years old. I would imagine that you would be within a range of ten years of being the same age as Patton, attending West Point at the same time and roommates and all which would make you 122 years old if younger to 142 years old if older. Would you care to explain your longevity and quickness of mind? Personally, I think that you are nothing more than a Liberal muslim supporting anti-American troll that is promoting a false narrative about yourself, West Point, and the US Army.

      I agree that he Military College is no place for individualism, uniformity is the cause and reason. They can not give in to her demands for it will lead to anarchy within the ranks. The one sad thing about this story is she is going to sue the school to meet her demands and we all know that the weeny liberal courts in this country cater to the few and demand the many, she will probably win a suit.

      Absolutely! Our country is about to be overwhelmed by a people whose goal is to use our laws against us, to gain a foothold and ultimately, a majority of our population. We have become so divided, that we couldn’t recognize it, even if it bit us on the butt. We have allowed the media to censor, and bend purported facts, in order to increase their viewing audience, and spread bias throughout our country. The freedoms and values passed down to us by the framers of our Constitution, were gained and preserved, only through a united effort of all Americans. We have always worked hard, and been willing to fight and even die, if necessary, to preserve our freedoms and way of life. Be wise, do not be manipulated, else you lose the very lifestyle, you have grown to take for granted. Freedoms can be easily lost, never to be recovered. Pay attention to changes in your communities, and schools. Muslims are offended by our Christian values, the way our women and children dress, and the freedoms our women and children enjoy.

        I am so fed up with these annoying Muslims. I wish congress would pass a law banning anyone from wearing a hijab in public. It is already against the law for an adult to wear a Halloween mask in public except for Halloween. Security should be our priority, you can not identify a person with that sheet on their face and body, and they could have concealed weapons under it, or a bomb….

If it’s change to accommodate her, then it’s time to remove the commandant from there and end the military side.

    I do believe there are many colleges that will allow her to dress as she pleases.
    The military schools in the US have rules that MUst be followed. No one is above
    These rules and regulations. This women needs to follow the military rule or goto
    another school or country. Since this is a military school the only court that matters
    is the military court and no other court should even be allowed to be heard.
    She is not special and the current dress code is what is POLITICALLY CORRECT.

    I would be questioning why she wants to attend the Citadel, a military school, since she obviously does not respect American policies and laws. How could she be trusted to fight for America in the military when she is fighting against America right now to practice her Muslim policies rather than accept American rules? She should be denied acceptance to the Citadel. She represents everything America doesn’t want. I consider her to be a trouble-maker just like many other myslims who come here and sue us to change to their ways. They shouldn’t be allowed in without signing an agreement to accept all American laws and traditions.

        She’s in my class at Norwich University, an even more prestigious military college created by the same founder as the Citadel. Norwich was created almost 200 years ago now, and we certainly respect all races, religious beliefs, and ideals. She is an American citizen who wants to serve our great country in the best way she can. The Army has made accommodations for Indian soldiers to wear their turbans in the armed forces, so why can’t she wear her hijab at a college? She t least had the courage to do what 95% of this nation won’t even think about doing themselves, putting herself in harms way to protect our people, our ideologies, our land.

          May 19, 2017 at 4:00 pm

          what happens AFTER college isn’t what this is about, it’s about one college’s standards and RULES and if she doesn’t like them i’m sure she can go somewhere else.You know what RULES are right? It’s what some people have to follow or other’s get killed. Making an exception is NOT acceptable when trying to create a mutual trust among her fellow students or soldiers in training. This college needs to uphold and continue their stance on this matter.

        • Nick

          May 19, 2017 at 6:51 pm

          There is no reason for her to have to wear it, if she wants to go to the school. It’s a military school, like not camp they are trying to get you out of the mindset of “you” and think of “we or us”. So many other schools are can go to, that will accept it and don’t have rules against it. If she wants the training and leadership from that school, then follow the rules.

          If you give an inch, next she will want a prayer rug and next a place for it and next she will want to have a special excuse to leave class five times a day to bow and pray. If she wants to be treated special, she should go home and be home schooled. I also disagree with your statement that she is an American citizen and to serve our country in the best way she can, the best way is to attend the traditions of this country and the customs and traditions of this country. I challenge your data of 95% of this Nation, perhaps that is what is being taught at Norwich, I also challenge your beliefs, let us change this Nation’s Institutions to lean left or right to suit whomever does not like something so they may fit in for their personal beliefs. It does not work that way, if you can’t fit in, go to where you can.

            Well said James. The Cidadel is a private military school with high tradition and even higher standards. If this young lady doesn’t like the rules and protocol she has other options. I served in the Army for 38 years and in those years I never requested any kind of acception to policy because I was female, for religious beliefs or anything else. You follow the regulations or move on. Rules are in place for a reason.

          Why on Earth is SHE considered Entitled in the first place? She is no more entitled than any one in this nation! She should follow the rules like everyone else. That is what is wrong with this nation. For the past 8 years this nations has gone to the dogs. There are people in America that think they are better than anyone else that live here and it has to STOP! For the past 8 years we have had to live with our own rights and beliefs being swept away as if they were nothing but piddly gnats to be swiped away with a wave of a hand. We are being forced to stand aside and let others dictate what we have to believe and accept… Who is going to stand by us in what we believe? So far not a dang soul…. and if she can’t put away the head scarf and follow OUR RULES… she has to wear it cause it is what SHE believes…. what in God’s name gives you the impression she is going to protect our people, our ideologies, our land…. when she is plainly putting HER WAYS and HER BELIEFS FIRST!? People better wake up!

          You’re completely naive. She has fooled you as these Muslims know how to carefully manipulate your thinking … it’s called brainwashing. They’re good in that regardless that she iwas born here. Her parents more likely were not. Stop defending these people, if these people get their way you’ll become one of them just to save your skin.

          First off the Indian soldiers were here first and they didn’t try to force us to change our customs, take the scarf off or go to a different school plain and simple. Rules are rules she needs to get over herself, she knew the rules before she applied so why did she apply there,
          simple to start trouble.

          Bravo John Taverty. The Army allows the wear of facial hair and hijabs in support of our religious brothers and sisters in arms. The Citadel is a private institution and does not have to adhere to Army standards, but opens itself up for a religious discrimination lawsuit. Inviting diversity to the table helps the Army understand different perspectives. https://www.google.com/amp/www.foxnews.com/us/2017/01/06/new-army-regulations-let-soldiers-wear-hijabs-turbans-and-religious-beards.amp.html

          When I enlisted in the Army, I did so, knowing that I have to abide by their rules and regulations. She doesn’t have to go to the Citadel. She’s making people accommodate her when, you’re supposed to be accommodating yourself for the military.

          I don’t care if she’s American; she’s made it clear by her demands she is Muslim first, above all else. Her actions tell me she very possibly has other plans for what she learns at the Citadel and defending America is not paramount. Remember the 9/11 murders who used our flight schools for training and what that training led to? Her action in filing that lawsuit strongly suggests she is not genuine in her motive to attend a military school. As for the Indians wearing their tribal head bans, they are native Americans, here in this country long before most of us. What’s happening is that Muslims have to stop coming here and other countries causing deaths and destruction, and demanding we change our ways to accommodate them.

          She is not in the army, she is trying to break the rules and change an age old custom, you John are one of the reasons these islamists are gaining a foot hold in this country. Since she is already in such a prestigious school the only reason she wants to change is to cause trouble. Wise up unless you are one who believes in their way of life. btw is cair or the muslim brother hood paying for her schooling?

          I wouldn’t want to bet my life on her putting herself in harms way to protect our people. She is already disrespecting our ideologies and trying to change the rules; and she will, in all liklihood, continue to do so. I think you are way off claiming 95% unwilling, our current military and former military, retired military and those medically unable but willing make up a much larger percentage than 5%. The whole idea behind a uniform is to not distinguish one individual over another and learn that it is a team concept, all are one. If she doesn’t like it, go somewhere else…..

          I believe that this is an example of ” creeping Sharia”. There is a global push by Muslims to Islamise the world. Indians have no interest in turning us all to their religion. Good on the American military for dismissing her ill disciplined action.

          Indians are not threatening to take over our country. They live here and respect our ways. They are not in a religion that condones rape of innocent children and murder. We absolutely should not bend to their demands. By their admission and out of their mouths, they have said that they would eventually take over our country. What audacity!!!!!

          If she is at an even more prestigious school, why leave it? There are military schools willing to make accommodations since they still fit with the rules and traditions of the individual schools. Why choose one that can not? By demanding that the Citadel bend rules for one person is undermining the system that has made it great. She is demanding respect for herself but at the same time is disrespecting the school and all who have gone before her. If living by the military values she proclaims to live by, she should understand this. I am not military, but many family members have been. I may be wrong, but from what I understand, when people serve in the military, attend military schools, they are leaving their personal lives behind to a great extent and are governed by the military law, not just civilian. She needs to follow the strict rules or stay at her other school. I don’t see what she is doing as brave. I see it as grandstanding and expecting everything to go her way because she is who she is and she wants what she wants. It’s childish and anti-military.

          If she is in your class at Norwich University, which you are saying is a military college, why is she trying to go to the Citadel, another military college? If she is truly in your college and trying to go to the other and at yours they allow her to wear the head scarf I have a feeling she is not wanting to serve her country but to try to get the military colleges to kow-tow to her wishes to wear the scarf.

        • Robert

          May 29, 2017 at 1:04 pm

          Uniform regulations for the active armed services are not set by a “Board of Governors” as they are at The Citadel and other military schools, those regulations are set by the individual armed services under the authority of the Service Secretaries and Defense Secretary. Whatever accommodations for religion or others that are made by those active armed services have absolutely no bearing on her case or on what those schools permit or do not.

          She is attempting to carve out an exemption for herself as she thinks she and her religion are “something special” from everyone else. She and they are not.

          think you need to learn your own school history. Norwich was founded by Captain Alden Partridge 198 years ago aka in 1819. He did not create the citadel at all. he only created 6 military schools total but the Citadel was not his. The citadel was founded by state legislature and included Arsenal located at Columbia at the time in the 1840s timeframe. although his model of Norwich helped legislature look and act on building more military acadamies, he was not the founder of the Citadel.

        • Toni

          May 29, 2017 at 4:53 pm

          Because ….. the rule of that school is that she not wear it. It doesn’t matter about the rules of any other school. If she goes to Norwich University, good for her. If they let her wear the scarf, good for her. But the Citadel has a rule and she cannot break it. Good for the Citadel. I back them 1000%. That’s the big problem now days. You all think you are above the rules. Well, guess what, no demanding, no crying, no throwing a tantrum and threatening to sue will do any good … and it shouldn’t!!!

          If she is allowed that OPTIONAL display of her faith, but the U.S. Military is actively working against naming our Creator God at funeral services in military cemeteries? Christian CHAPLAINS are being told to not mention Jesus Christ as they minister to the hurting in the military (which is their JOB!)? Does this mean people can now start to wear other religious symbols on their uniforms? Oh, my goodness! We can then expect crosses, the Star of David, and the ever-popular symbol for satan as our friendly local wiccans decide they want to be represented, too. BAD IDEA!!!!!

          If your school is more prestigious and she is a student there why the lawsuit and desire to change school? Because she wants to make a name for herself. Has nothing to do with her religion. All other students at the school including current Muslim students comply with the dress code. Lawsuit, free education, book deal, making news.

          She knows the rules beforehand so if she chooses to disobey then to hell with her. If there were a legal way to keep Muslim s out of our military then I would be all for it. These coniving throwbacks from the Middle East want to overthrow our way of life and kill American infidels so why should we trust them in our military? They try to use our laws against us and when majority America fights back, they say we are racist and intolerant. Muslims have caused more death, destruction and fear in the last twenty years than in the previous century. The nations on earth better destroy this cancer before everyone is bowing towards Mecca five times a day. Kick this Muslim bitch out of the Citadel sooner than later.

          May 30, 2017 at 4:38 pm

          You are of course wrong, but I attribute that too your youth and not some ignorance on your part. The Army has not made accommodations not for Indian troops those accommodations were given to Sikhs, and was for religious reasons, there is nothing in the Quran that says Islamic women must wear head coverings, it is only a tradition within some subgroupings of Muslims. But lets look at the larger picture. Those who elect the challenge and unity of the Corps of Cadets arrive on campus with little other than a few pairs of white boxers, white T-shirts and socks. If you have a cross outside of your uniform you’re out of uniform. Everyone is supposed to look the same because everyone is the same. Everyone is treated the same. This instills service before self as a guiding value of the Corps of Cadets. Camaraderie and cohesiveness, in my opinion, are the two traits that bind the team together. And individuality is corrosive to those values. This isn’t an argument against Islam or wearing a hijab. It’s all cultures, Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Buddhism. The reason everyone in the military and at The Citadel wears a uniform is everyone is equal, everyone is the same and everyone is part of something bigger than themselves, they are the Corps of Cadets, they are the Citadel. You say that you are in some or at least one class with her, are you a Cadet, or just a student of the university?

          1) Norwich University might be older than The Citadel, but it most definitely is not more prestigious.
          2) IF she wants to serve she can do it LIKE EVERYONE ELSE; wearing the same uniform and following the same regulations.
          3) Did you also approve of the “Black Power Girls” at West Point receiving no punishment, even though that gesture is
          equally as racist as a group of white guys taking a picture while giving the Nazi salute?

(Islam is not a religion; it’s a geo-political entity that uses religion to take over their neighbors). They want the females’hijabs to be seen everywhere in public and especially the universities.

          Since we’re talking about words, what is a “short sided liberal”? Do they have one leg shorter than the other? Or perhaps one or two fewer ribs on one side? Or perhaps the “writer” actually meant “short-sighted”? I really wish people who pretend to be writers would actually familiarize themselves with the language.

      Well, she should not even be considered when she is part of a “so called religion” that has in it’s beginning to destroy everything and everyone that are not of a like mind with them? And, withing this very country, we are their enemy and so she’s automatically unqualified to be a part of one of the most well trained and well respected AMERICAN IDEOLOGY. This is why we as a nation and true AMERICANS have to be extremely vigilant about who’s around us at all times, because to them, we are the enemy and currently, there are more of us with guns than there are of them. I’ll fight in the streets without a rug around my face to hide who I am, as they the true gutless cowards hide behind scarf, child, women, and homes to pursue their control of the world. NOT HERE, NOT NOW, NOT EVERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I went to her country and demanded things I would be killed and that is not going to happen. obama has brought her and millions in to the USA. He is an illegal. YOU OBEY OUR LAWS OR GO HOME.

          Just another thing we can place at the feet of their Muslim God Obama. I’m sure she will also get the support of the left wing liberal Democrats since they get their crooked noses behind every left wing liberal policy that comes down the pike. Obama brought more Muslims into the country than we will ever know and we all know that there is power in numbers and they are gaining in numbers.

          I saw Obama in an old video, a few years before he started running for President. He was telling a small group of people that if they think he was born in the USA, they are wrong. He told them he was born in Kenya !! At the time I thought nothing of the video. I can not tell you now what site I had read this on.If I knew he was going to run for president I surely would have saved it.

          Wrong, wrong, wrong. His birth has been proven to not be in the U.S. even his own grandmother has stated she was at his birth and it was not in the U.S. plus other facts. It will never be able to be proven because the liberal left still has enough clout to terminate any investigation. It will be proven, maybe not today but, it will happen. Will probably happen when enough powerful Democrats have finally passed into history.

            You are correct. I heard him say he was born in Kenya on a site, two years before he started running for President. I do not know when he had made this statement though.He was young looking though !

      She will be denied admission until she gets a legal team from the ACLU and some of the liberal wing politicians enter the game. Then the citadel will either back down or some no name judge will order them to admit her…either way, she gets in…then once in, she will be allowed to manage her own education path with ABSOLUTELY no harassment..

      The Citadel is 100% right! And I for one will stand behind them! This is America and we have to stop the insanity of people thinking that you can do anything you want to do in the name of free speech. It’s gone to far. You have to have respect for our country and our laws. YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF, WHY DOES SHE WANT TO JOIN THE CITADEL? They are sneaky and know just what they’re doing. I don’t think the Citadel should take ANYONE that’s not born and raised here!
      Would it make sense if we let them join our military!? NO OF COURSE NOT! I say kick her ass out of the Citadel because she doesn’t belong there.

    • Rosina Carloss

      May 14, 2017 at 4:26 pm

      I agree. I was under the assumption that she decided not to attend the Citadel. She was going to another school in the northeast. I don’t care where she goes. She doesn’t belong in anyone of our military institutions. As soon as she steps foot at the front door she should be escorted out.

      Duruna (phonetic Arabic): means release from the obligations of Sharia that the believer is not able or allowed to comply with. Examples: a Muslim is supposed to pray during the day, but if not able, he is released from the obligation. Sharia even gives the rules for makeup prayers. Muslims are not supposed to eat pork, but if there’s only pork to eat, then they may eat pork. Footbaths, separate swimming accommodations for females, headdress, holidays, etc. are political demands/symbols based on the Sharia, and should be judged by duruna. When Muslims make requests or demands, they are not religious needs, but political. Kafir (non-Muslims) bending to Sharia demands by whatever means necessary, however, advances Allah’s cause – a political duty of all Muslims.

      The Council for American Islamic Relations IS NOT funded by terrorists. It is funded by American Muslims….that is like saying that Wall street is funded by Christian Terrorists. Same analogy. You see terrorists in every muslim, I was Christian, now Atheist, and Christian fundamentalism in America is so out of control that you can’t even see it. Regardless of that the woman concerned has a choice in wearing a hijab. Muslim women do not have to wear a hijab outside of radical muslim countries like Saudi Arabia. Her choise is entirely up to her and her parents have no say in the matter. So it a lawsuit she cannot win.

        May 20, 2017 at 4:12 am

        I understand that if you believe in the Koran, then you are a Muslim, if you do not then you are not Muslim. Now what does the Koran teach, death to the infidel, who is an infidel – anyone who does not believe in the Koran. Why should I, or anyone else, want to be associated with a person who believes in the Koran, he is taught to kill you because you are an infidel. Yet, the Muslim says that it is a religion of peace and love, where is the peace and love in a person that wants to kill you because you do not believe in the Koran. The Muslim says that the person that wants to kill is a radical. OK, they both belief in the Koran, one is just open about it and the other is a silent supporter, the end objective is the same, Sharia law is their law to rule the Muslims. I did not write the Koran, get yourself an English translation of the Koran.

      There’s a lot more to this country than what you think. So now we can’t trust this woman, and you say it’s because she is “fighting against America right now to practice her Muslim policies rather than accept American rules.” She is not fighting against America. She is not a terrorist. She is a Muslim. And what she is trying to do is secure her CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. She’s not changing the rules. She is making sure that the country she is about to potentially give her life for respects her with its rules. Religious freedom doesn’t just mean the protestants on the Mayflower escaping from tyranny. Also, I don’t know how you were taught, but this “agreement to accept all American laws and traditions” sounds a bit McCarthy-esque. There is an agreement for all laws, and it’s called citizenship in this country. But, I suppose she’s just a troublemaker trying to make sure Sharia law replaces the constitution and we’re forced to change religions. How dare she not let the Citadel stomp all over her religion though, right? If Christian military students are allowed to pray, this woman should be able to wear a hijab.

      Ida, you are right. I would put other things together, such as— we have at least one Muslim in our congress, one or more mayors, and I believe I saw on the news there is one candidate for Governor in coming elections— so it follows that if their goal is to overpower this country, they need to get a foothold in our military. So let’s watch to see if they try to gain access to one of our major military academies. (bear in mind, we already had one as president)

    If she insists to wear the hijab then the catholic students have right to wear a big cross on their chests. Then it will be a dayly fight between the Christian’s and the muslims , and that’s what the muslims want, distort the Great America. Democrats and liberals did you get it or not yet?

    April 21, 2017 at 12:08 pm

    The Citadel is a prestigious college, on equal footing with all the other service academies. They have provided this Nation with many of it’s best military leaders. If she has the academic qualifications, to deny her outright may be considered prejudiced. That being said, I feel that they did exactly what was necessary and right. Their standards are for all with no exceptions. This has nothing to do with religion, this has to do with conforming to rules set down many, many years before the current “Muslim Problem” existed. And it’s only a problem in their eyes. If they are willing to be assimilated into our society, they will become Americans, just like all the immigrants that came before them. If not, they need to leave and go back to they country of origin where they will feel more comfortable.

    This woman’s actions were WRONG, period.

    But to suggest that Muslims as a whole wish to infiltrate, not assimilate is inaccurate. Many Muslims have served in the US Armed Forces with distinction and many civilian Moderates have assisted our Armed Forces and CIA against the Radicals.

    Muslim is an a branch of Catholic cultists group which was founded by Catholic 1400 years ago,it found to eliminate the Jewish race but unfortunately it is hunting and terrorising the whole race today, is not of God, and they and Roman catholicism will not stand the punishment of Jehovah God, do not give them chance because the people who you are calling liberal are historically people without vision, and the people without vision the people perish, also kick out Islamic council out of USA if not your problems just began.

Another example was when they were trying to build a mosque two blocks from ground zero in NY. When you come to live in a country you’re supposed to assimilate their culture not the other way around! Ever noticed how Muslims when they’re the minority they’re all for minority rights, but in their countries there are no minority’ rights. Explain that!

    She isn’t interested in attending this school only just trying to change the rules to accommodate the Muslim customs and Sharia laws. That is what they have been doing all over our country in all facets of our culture, schools, colleges, government and military for many years. They are intent on taking over our country not assimilate and we are allowing it on so many levels. If we don’t put a stop to it now they will overtake us in shear numbers in the highest places of government, local, state and federal. The biggest push began 8 years ago.

That will explain a lot of things about Muslims trying to get into the USA as well. This genocidal plan had been started in 1922-1923 already by that Austrian Gent mentioned in that website. The forming of the so called ‘European Union’ was the beginning in Europe. Mrs. Merkel, Germany, has been an avid supporter and had even received one of that groups highest bi-annul awards in 2010.

I’m tired of these people coming in and changing OUR country to suit them. This is America, you live here you live by our laws!!!

    The only reason is to change the laws for Muslims. Thrust want to take over America!

    This is a small conflict and she should not be allowed into the Citadel. The bigger problem is defining what it means to be an American and what it means to be living in a democratic country. We have allowed the government to take away the rights of citizens to live and govern their own lives and businesses. If the country is to be one of many faiths and many different sets of laws then there won’t be such a thing as an “American”. Define what it is to be American and then hold fast to that definition.

    I too would be suspicious of her motives. As the article says: Breaking unit cohesion for a head scarf is not acceptable. Her actions are ludicrous – in my opinion. I wouldn’t allow her to attend at all – I believe the goal is to undermine the objectives of the school such as morale, health and safety, or good order. It just doesn’t make a lot of sense.

    Ok if she is suing the Citadel then that should be grounds for her not being accepted. KICK HER ASS TO THE CURB. The Muslims are trying to get a foot hold in everything American so they can change it for other Muslims to get in the door. STOP THIS CANCER… Since she is suing the school that should be a automatic DENIAL.. Wake up America they are whine tits like the leftist liberals. I say we pack up all the libtards and muslims and send em back to Iran, Syria and parts unknown. Keep America safe from these child molesters and rapists. IF you pay attention you see nothing but young men wanting to get into all these countries. They are trying to force Sharia Law on us and if we do not start closing the door on them we will have a revolution of America against the refugees. Damn how can so many Americans be so stupid as to want to bring them here. So many of them say DEATH TO THE INFIDELS. If you are not a Quran thumping person then they say they have the right to kill you, your family, hell even your dog. For the people that want to bring them here you need to be shot as a traitor.

    the need to wear a hijab is not even mentioned in the koran – seems to me this person wants to make a quick buck in court from the Citadel which she will go on to claim has affected her psyche… – in her country, heads will literally roll if no respect is shown on the country’s dress code.

    She new the rules and the ways of the school. Especially since it has never changed. It is like what the article says about the Muslims expecting special privileges for themselves using a part of the process known as creeping sharia. I pray for God’s right hand and protection over our country, leaders and schools. Please pass this article along in letting your opinion known that you stand behind the schools formalities and rules that have run the school for over 100 years that has proved its word and truth from the young cadets that have graduated with honor!!!

    The Citadel should make no exceptions for anyone. This Is America, the school has it’s policies and shouldn’t even have a Muslim in the program. Question….why would she want to attend other than to make trouble?

  132. Cheryl

    April 24, 2017 at 2:25 pm

    They want to break down AMERICA, whether it’s one law or rule at a time or all laws we give in too! She couldn’t care less about actually going to Citadel! The Muslims know the more they get Americans or establishments to give in the more chance they have in taking over AMERICA!

    Do not let her attend the school! If she were to be successful in this lawsuit it would be the end for all our military schools, their traditions and everything they represent. Send her back to her country of origin and see what rules she can dictate there!

    I am a Citadel Graduate and received a letter from The Citadel about this case. I was delighted about The Citadel’s response. There are plenty of colleges who will allow the hijab to be worn. The Citadel does not need to give in to this cultural preference. The hijab is cultural and not religious, these Muslim coverings are not in the Koran. Even if it was, doesn’t matter, many institutions have their rules, if you don’t like it – don’t join. Police departments in the UK and Canada are bending to these cultural rules- ridiculous. A hospital in the UK allowed a similar issue and gave in at the risk of safety to the MRSA virus!!!
    She should be dismissed from the school and this should not ever go to court.

    Having actually met her unlike everyone else here, she is an amazing person and has fit in perfectly at another military college. She has done amazingly well here and is an amazing student and cadet as well as an American just like the rest of us. I would prefer having her have my six than anyone who would definitely scrimmage against her because of her religion rather than seeing her as the American citizen she is. This is just a completely biased writing piece that was written to purposely breed hate and is directed towards those who can’t accept those different from who they are themselves.

    Reading all these comments above me…I am in awe of the sheer lack of knowledge and claimed “we know exactly what she’s doing to this country” except shes born in America, her parents are American, she has been an excellent student at the school and followed all the rules. Also, for those who didn’t know, Muslim headdress is allowed in the actual military. Citadel is private, so it can call that. Actual military allows this. Final distinction. She’s not in the military! What do you know. Service is not required at our school. However, to those of you who think this is “creeping Sharia” I encourage you to be as upset as possible about logic being added into this discussion, and use it to reinforce your false ideas of what you think Muslims are and are not. Enjoy your life in a mental box.

    Reading these comments is mind boggling. We allow Jews and Sikhs to wear religious garb in the Miltary today outside of being Clergy. As for the school, I agree for nothing more than discipline and decorum which must be taught in order to assure good order. As for comments of being for subversive reasons, c’mon folks. We have had Muslims in our Military as far back as our Revolution and to date most have served with honor. To hear the daitribe that she is infiltrating to harass and creep Sharia is such garbage.

    One just has to look at the Menonites or Amish to know that a little compassion without judgement goes a long way. Do we chastise them for not conforming to western standards? Placing their hands over their hearts to worship a piece of cloth? I’m just saying these things, not to rile, but for those folks to ponder.

    I am an Apostolic Pentacostal Christian. We live strictly by the Bible which asks women to never cut their hair and to not wear the clothes of men, so we wear dresses. At one time my daughter wished to attend West Point. This would have required her to cut her hair, as it is too long to put up under the required uniform, and to wear the pants of the required uniform. She decided she would not apply and instead is working on a degree in the Criminal Justice Field. Her father is in the military. We never would have sued anyone or any college to demand that they change a rule to accommodate our religious views. There is a separation of Church and State for a reason. We pray that the Citadel uses people like us as an example of people who respect their right to their rules and regulations for attendance. She can go elsewhere for a degree. There are plenty of universities and colleges that will allow her to wear what she wishes including the Christian University my daughter currently attends which does have Muslim students attending and the women can wear the Hijab or full covering. If she can get into the Citadel, she has the grades to get into anywhere else.

  176. Peter krausch

    She should not be allowed.Why would she pick the Citadel instead of West Point ?? Could it be they,the Sharia loving Muslims think the Citadel is a lesser target then the W.PT.
    Let her in after the Muslims let pork sausages and ham be served at their functions. Or let woman go around in many Muslim areas, buildings and countries without being covered.
    Foot baths in airports at michigan,minnesota,pray rooms and set aside for them at work areas. Taxi drivers don’t have to take passengers if they have beer, wine or liquor. Special foods in school cafeterias and now they want Muslim holidays in school and employment to be recognized….
    If they want all this go to a country that has all of their demands.

    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”

    Maybe I’m an idiot but I thought the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protected her rights.

    Groups like The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, etc. are not a representation of Muslims as a whole in my opinion.

    I am a Christian but let’s not forgot about the Gunpowder Plot, Pogroms, Ku Klux Klan, Ilaga, or contemporary groups like Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda who carry out terrible violent acts and proclaim it to be Christian when most of us do not agree with it. I think it would be unfair for others to claim Christians as terrorists based on those events and others like the recent shootings here in America.

Because of the low life administration that we had to suffer they these last 8 years…….it had to try. America is waking up and no matter how young or old the US rules set forth by our fore fathers are what we live by. The weak kneed politicians we have

    Kick her to the curb. I served alongside several Muslims, none of which demanded special treatment when it came to uniform or appearance standards. Yes they were allowed to practice their faith, kosher meals provided, one even fasted through Ramadan while we were in Iraq. They were all great troopers.
    The point I’m making is if you decide to serve, you accept the fact that you wear what you’re told, go where you’re told and do what you’re told , end of story. Although I’m sure she’ll use the precedent of the army allowing the Sika soldiers to have beards in her favor and likely win in court. She obviously has no idea what service is all about.

    Of course she is using CAIRE, the propaganda arm of Hamas. CAIRE was a unnamed, co-conspirator of a terrorist organization in the Holy Land trial. But because of the milquetoast politicians in D.C., CAIRE is alive & well using our 1st amendment against us. They are as bad as Freedom from Religion organization, looking for ways to sue secluded groups with American, religious, or military ties to show Islamaphobia. Most of the time they have to generate their own ‘Islamaphobia’ & blame others. See Islamic professor, putting bacon on the doorknobs of his local mosque. Both Bush & Obama presidencies never pursued the case & waved the white flag in the name of ‘Islam means peace’ propaganda. Plus, universities taking large sums of money from Saudi Arabia so wahabism can be taught & have a platform in our top education centers, enter MSA, Muslim Student Association (the one Huma Abedin was president of) another arm of the terrorist organizations using official clubs at schools to promote Sharia & plant a flag of victory in their ‘silent jihad’ & the are winning.

    It is my belief she is attempting to enroll just to stir up controversy. It is in the best interest of the school to not accept her application.

  213. Sherrill Riley

    May 14, 2017 at 7:49 pm

    a school with a 175 year history and traditions should not change the rules for any one person. It would be different if the rules were changed AFTER she was admitted, but she was aware of the rules before she went it. And that’s probably the only reason she went in. Like the people who get a job at Walmart or Target, never mentioning anything until they are hired, then protest and sue because they have to touch a package of bacon.

    All these comments have proven how much hate and intolerance is still in our country. Sadly it is getting stronger every day. No where did it say she was not an American citizen. If she is a citizen, she is home and shouldn’t have to leave because you don’t like her religion. And it is a religion. Extremists of any religious tradition do not represent the true values of the religion. I would guess many of you consider yourselves Christians. By your own words, you prove how very unchristian you are. Not every muslin is a threat. How can showing modesty and respect for ones’ religious beliefs be translated into no respect or love for America? It is a sad day for this country that hate and intolerance has become the accepted norm. You need to get to know others unlike yourselves as real people not just cartoon caricatures.

    I’m glad some one has a back bone for a change. It seems so many are afraid of offending a muzzie. I for one do not trust ONE muzzie. Watching what they’ve done has me 100% against their ideology of conquest by violence.
    One of the things they follow is called Taqiyya. It’s a form of Islamic deception. The Quran (16:106 and 3:28) allows Muslims to lie in order to protect themselves or to protect the Muslim community. Protecting the Muslim community, however, involves lying about jihad and portraying Islam as a religion of peace.

    One of the requirements of the school is to NOT wear a hijab. Why does she want to go to The Citadel, anyway, knowing that it does not permit them? Muslims do not belong to a religion that meets the standards of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.

    Further, considering that Muslims cannot truthfully pledge allegiance to the US and its flag, nor can they truthfully support the US Constitution, they should not be permitted to enroll in US military academies and institutions.

    It is time that Congress writes a law that clarifies that Islam is not a religion that meets the qualifications of the First Amendment “freedom of religion” clause, for many reasons known to those who have read the Qur’an. Individual “Muslims” who do not follow the teachings of the Qur’an are not true Muslims, and are subject to being treated like infidels by true Muslims, AKA members of ISIS and Al Qaeda.

    Why would she even want to attend the Citidal if she knew the dress code? Certainly she knew. She is either stupid or just trying to make e Citidal change their policy for her, which is very self-centered. She would not make a good team member because she is in it for herself and not for the institution. She could have chosen somewhere else to go. She either needs to conform to the dress code, quit, or be thrown out.

    Muslims are neither refugees nor migrants, they’re colonists: moving in with their own laws and customs the same way they come to dominate most of today’s 57 Muslim nations.
    Houari Boumedienne, former Algerian President: “One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.” Prophetic warning to Europe in a 1974 UN speech. Today his prediction is in the process of unfolding. Does your elected officials know?

  234. Vicky

    May 15, 2017 at 7:24 am

    She probably never really planned on attending this was probably all planned by CAIR and its more of their fake poor us propaganda. They’re always trying to act like Americans are picking on. They also blame it on Trump. In reality Americans are just fed up with their attitudes, disrespect, and nonconforming to our country’s laws. They need to go back to where they came from if they want their laws!!!!!!!!!!

  235. Clayton Brown

    May 15, 2017 at 7:40 am

    Many of the rules and behaviors required of some institutions are meant to do two things: 1)Establish a strong sense of “oneness” among the group so that they may more effectively prosecute the goals of the group under a wide variety of circumstances. 2) These rules and practices decrease the sense of individuality.

    This school’s primary purpose is to prepare young people for the military, whose singular purpose is to defend the United States from danger. To do this, the individuals in the military must be dedicated wholly to this objective. If a person cannot obey this simple rule, then they obviously have no dedication to upholding those of a higher level. This does not mean that they have malicious feelings toward the US, it may well mean that they have a loyalty to a set of rules that must be followed explicitly.

    The article isn’t the least bit slanted, is it, defining her smile as “smug” and her as “privileged”? She’s a young woman who wants to serve her country. The US military allows beards and turbans now–why shouldn’t the Citadel follow suit? Tradition isn’t enough reason. This is the school that didn’t want women at all so they’ll make any excuse to maintain their sexism–and call it tradition. This is America. We do NOT discriminate against people because of their religion! YOUR ancestors came here, in part, for freedom to practice their religion.

    Before you condemn Sharia law, try learning something about it. It’s a lot like the Old Testament law in your own Bible. Many of the comments here are shameful and un-American.

    She needs to follow the schools dress code as its been followed for almost two centuries by every other student who’s attended. There should be no special dispensation for her or anyone else. Do you see Jewish students asking and suing because they can’t wear their yamakas? If you decide to immigrate to America then you need to assimilate, if you can’t then return to the country you cam from. It’s as simple as that!

    No, I do NOT agree. She should be required to take an oath to the Constitution and FORESWEAR SHARIA LAW. THIS IS NOT, i repeat, NOT a religion. It is an oath of fealty to a political-social idea. If she does not, she should be deported. Her behavior is TRAI – TOR – [email protected]!!!!

  244. Karen

    May 15, 2017 at 3:02 pm

    I agree with all of the above comments. If she is suing because the school is violating her religious rights, then she would not fight for America, she would fight against America. She is either trying to play the discrimination card and drawing attention to the “plight” of Muslims in America or she is trying to infiltrate an American military institution for the purpose of gathering information to use against America in the future. I personally do not believe Muslims should be allowed into ANY of our military schools or the military itself unless they are fully vetted which is almost impossible to accomplish. I am sure there are good Muslim people but any Muslim who would fight over something like a hijab or some other asinine rule of Sharia law should be suspect and not allowed into the military and especially into our government. Call me a racist, but that’s what I think and my opinion which every one has a right to have.

    First of all, America is based on Judeo-Christian values; yes there is freedom of religion.

    However, this Muslim cadet does not accept the Citadel’s strict military dress code. I think this academy is a private one. It’s common sense, she should look for other military academies or simply go back where she came from.
    She refuses to accept basic American culture and values. She forgets that many American Muslims including a Navy Seal MOH receipt gave their lives for USA. Then why in heck is she here??

    The actual military is quite accommodating of religious headwear. Observant Jews are allowed to wear a kippa and the seik turban is accommodated.

    As has been mentioned, there are many areas of the United States Government/Universities/Establishments that are being tried and tested by islamic people with the intent to infiltrate and destroy in order to enable islam into the venue with the intention of overpowering and taking our Country over. Read the koran/quran(qu’ran) to help you understand what it is that they are “attempting”…There are those that are “buddy-buddy” with everyone until the jihad is called and they will use their little circle of American infidels to restrain others from interfering with their “mission” which is to take over the world.

    May 17, 2017 at 11:45 am

    I agree with the intent of the article and the comments given; but want to simply correct historical facts. First, I’ve been out of the military for 20 years and even back then Muslim officers wore their traditional headdress while in Army uniform and not required to adhere to the facial hair policy on beards. They had a whole headdress wardrobe; camouflaged for BDU’s, black for dress blues, and green for class A uniform. Secondly, touting the 175 unbending history of the Citadel is incorrect as it was all white until the late 1960’s and all male until 1990’s. Not saying these past changes are the same philosophically, or wrong, but painting the military and the Cotadel as staunch advocates of tradition and not susceptaible to societal changes and pressures is incorrect.

    This woman has 2 goals – both she will obtain. Just make sure to understand she has no interest in being part of America’s military, but to 1. force her religious beliefs upon a military institution so that it opens the door to other muslims who are clearly radical and not willing to assimilate into the ways of the host country, but instead FORCE it to bend to sharia laws. After she gets the hijab, she will need prayer times each day, after that she will require a muslim cleric to be wherever she is stationed and then its this big problem because as she goes into the military and forces them to protect her freedom of her religion by using our Constitution against us as Americans slowing allowing for Muslims to take over our military have access to our weapons and our strategies. And #2 she will use the courts to award her money – lots of money – that she will turn over to a terrorist organization to use against us. Because you know the law suit is all part of the plan. They know military dress will not work with women who need hijabs. The suit will be settled out of court and she will either win by being allowed to be in the military with hijab, or she will not be able to wear the hijab (depends on how the law is interpreted by the judge) but still be able to win substantial money regardless. This will open the door for other Muslims to sue our military schools – overwhelm them with lawsuits – for the various sharia laws that we do not honor in this country under the guise of protecting their religious freedoms. This whole scheme is made to undermine our military, bankrupt our military schools (via court cases) and pay out to these “victims” so that they can in turn send the millions of dollars that win by our courts to terrorists organizations whose only goal is to enslave or murder Americans and other Western cultures.

I believe that the U S has gotten to weak ! We been to stand up for our beliefs and what’s our forefathers went to war for for our Constitution of the United States, and the Declaration f Independence !that we as Americans have always been so very proud of ! We have forgotten and have given in to everyone else who wants to into the United States! ! Once they are here they say give e this if nit yu are discriminating against me I don’t want o or but I want to get all of your benefits anyway!!!! Meanwhile all of us Americans that have worked and served in the military to take care of our families and ourselves can’t make ends meat or get any benefits that worked for ND deserved. I didn’t serve jn the service, but I wore 20+ years in school system and as a nurse until I became unable to work due to medical problems. It took 51/2 years for e to get my disablity fighting for it and didn’t get any of my back pay that I deserved !!!!! So Why Should We Give All of These Foreigners Anything They Want Just Because They Are HERE in The USA !!!!!!! They should have to earn English, get a job do what they have to do to become a United States Citizen !! No Exceptions !!!!!!!

    I’m Leaving religion out of the argument and just considering the facts here. Here is a prestigious Military College that is an amazing part of American history. They have one set of rules and regulations for all cadets.
    Along comes this person who wants to become part of that history.
    But, this person demands that an exception to the rules be made for them. The Citadel refuses said request and explains that no exceptions have ever been allowed throughout their almost two hundred years of existence. Being a cadet at this institution is about being part of a team, not about oneself. In return this person threatens legal action due to a perceived prejudice and/or discrimination.
    How in the world can this institution”s requirement that EVERY cadet follow the same set of rules and regulations be considered discrimination? This person is not being singled out but instead being expected to assimilate into the group. This being the group that they themselves are requesting to join.
    Personal note:
    Look I don’t care what gender you are, what your sexual orientation is, which God you pray to, what color your skin is, where you’re from, or how much money you make. Stop expecting special treatment from everyone and then making threats when you don’t get your way. Maybe this hasn’t been explained to you but you’re not special, and you’re not deserving of it. You’re here in the greatest country in the world, the U.S.A. And while you’re here there are things that are expected of you. Be a productive member of society, be a good person, and work hard for the things you want for yourself in life. Don’t expect the rest of us to support you. And didn’t try to make this country into what you fled. If you liked your life before so much please go back to it. We Americans (we know it’s not perfect) love our country for better or for worse.
    And finally to the Citadel,
    Thank you for fighting the good fight. Stand your ground because already to many have caved in to this nonsense.
    God Bless America!

    This is where they attempt to get their money from. They look for places where they can begin to undermine the American way. They look for places such as the Citadel that have high moral values which many schools don’t have, and they look for schools with money to sue. They get the majority of their money from the law suits. The Citadel, probably VMI and Texas A&M where the schooling has a many part purpose are are pretty good targets in the near future. Beware! And these are the people the leftists want to “HUG,& HUG” again to let into this country. The Citadel is right,and living just a couple of minutes from her and seeing the quality of people they graduate, has every right to stand up against these people and say no to their idiotic request. That way they won’t be adding money to their coffers to be used buying weapons and training officers to fight against us using our own military tactics

    You come to America to become an American. Muslims cannot be assimilated. This is nothing about Religion. Islam is a diabolical Political force with its only purpose to overtake and control any and every Country it is allowed to enter.
    THEY MUST BE REMOVED FROM OUR COUNTRY IMMEDIATELY.

    Let this happen and they might have well rolled over at the begining, we’ll continue to lose. I hope they squash this dumb shit once and for all.

    That includes the PR side when WE say yes we’ll change for you; which can do more damage at times. When they say “they are coming here/ for ALL Americans” how you interpret it? Besides the comic book version they all are given in their ‘Welcome Aboard’ packet. They continue to chip away are ouour rights and our freedoms and RULES. Just because aren’t just to eventually change it to accommodate them. CAIR & all the others are always under surveillance.

    But when it’s a PC based decision it hits many in this country a lot harder because it”s so ludicrous and it’s obvious.

    Either she complies with school rules and goes without her head wear OR she gets thrown out. The school has 175 years of NOT caving to any one religion and shouldn’t start now. As far as I’m concerned she SHOULD NOT even be given a chance to be allowed in that school or to sue. Her law suit should be her ticket out and never able to come back. She should be arrested if she were to set foot on the property again. (personal feelings). Hopefully if this does go to court, the judge has common sense and laughs this case out of court and puts a judgement on the record she MUST EITHER DROP THE HEAD WEAR OR BE THROWN OUT OF SCHOOL AND ARRESTED IF SHE ATTEMPTS TO REENTER SCHOOL GROUNDS. (personal feelings/opinion)

    My grandson will be going to the Citadel this coming school year. He isn’t going to be treated any different than any other cadet nor should she. It’s a honor to go to the Citadel! They have rule , regulations and tradition. If she won’t follow the rules then she won’t go there. I wouldn’t exspect the school to make exceptions for my grandson.

    A majority of all of the people that commented on this, you guys are a bunch of biggots. She had every right to wear her hijab, it doesn’t matter if it violates the schools “dress code.” This country’s first amendment says everyone has the right to FREELY practice their religion. This woman is Muslim. Wearing her hijab is a sign of her religion. This school is trying to make her violate the rules of her religion. What astonished me is that you all support these bigoted decisions. The people that support this school, you guys are a bunch of racist, uneducated bigots who need help. You people make a mockery of this country.

    What the hell is wrong with these Muslim, that they expect special treatment??? You knew before you applied for that school how it was, but apparently they felt they would change tradition because she’s Muslim!!! I don’t hear the Jewish faith asking for special treatment or other faith!! So tired of the Muslim faith trying to change MY country!!! If they don’t like our ways, why are they here?? Move to a Muslim country!!!!

    I FEEL THE SAME WAY….as most of the comments state….when people do not assimilate they suffer in the long run. muslims yes even the moderate ones…still insist on their ways…they are and have been coming to this country for some time. I think that every state needs to inspect its areas to see if there are muslim training camps. muslims send their children when they reach a certain age back to iran or Afghanistan to be trained and when they come back things happen like what the sarnes brothers did….we found this out from a mid eastern guy who said that they send them back for training and most of that training is against the west and our ideologies. why would they want to go anywhere and live other then where they are from. they come here now as refuges but they hate us…to me they are preparing for war with us internally…we want to keep it there…they are bringing it here.

    The school is making the right move because it is more than just a hajab issue. It’s an “in your face” dress-code accomodation of Islam. If this woman wants to put a huge target on her back, then forcing the issue and standing out in a school that teaches conformity is a great way to get your fellow classmates to hate you. The military is not going to embrace “Islam” in any shape or form. Radical Islam may be who we are fighting but unfortunately all of Islam suffers. That’s the way it is.

    That this woman is so quick to want to claim her rights and force the issue in the courts says a lot about why she doesn’t fit into the military environment. The military isn’t searching for trouble-making showboats like her. She may be a US citizen which should mean something in this debate but if not, why are we giving her the same rights and offering the same remedies as Affirmative Action? This woman is not black (or even a part of the American culture for all we know).

    Further, why are there American-borne organizations whose only priority is looking out for the civil rights of non-citizens and immigrants, legal or otherwise? Don’t they have enough to do defending illegal Mexican gangs, rapists and sex slaves?

    She has the choice….shed it or shed the school. She will not get both, and the lawyers that took this case should be charged for theft by taking the case, that they KNOW they wll not ever win. She knew the rules when she applied and she applied with the intent of disruption apparently, but she is go ing to find out that a 175 year legacy will not die EVER

    Oh, btw, for the moderators, you need to contact your webmaster because the ads at the bottom of the article, after you click on it, redirects you to a “ransom ware” malware website. I know you’re trying to make a buck and shit, but it shouldn’t be at the expense of infecting people’s computers with viruses. Check your Ad providers, I just had it redirect me to a ransom-ware website saying my computer is infected and needs to download a program to get rid of. Normally I an unprotected browser wouldn’t be able to close the tab or even close the browser, but I have a heavily modified version of Google Chrome with three different types of Ad blockers and I’m also an IT major, so this isn’t hurting me. However, it may hurt other people.

    Dress codes are for everybody. The Muslim population is trying to force the US into giving them special treatment and completely ignore our laws and codes under the guise of religious rights. I dislike any religion, party, people or person who thinks they are above the rules and regulations and try to manipulate the system for their own gain. These people are smart, they use our own laws against us. Unfortunately you are going to have some judge rule in her favor.

    She knew the rules when she applied. If she didn’t want to abide by them, she shouldn’t have applied. I think Muslims do this to try to set precedents and to use scare tactics to force institutions to concede to them. They most likely have attorneys on retainer and they don’t, they should have just because of things like this. They should make them take it all the way to the Supreme Court.

She’s not protesting shit, the idiot that wrote this probably should have fact checked it first. The Citadel wouldn’t give her a uniform exemption so she chose to attend Norwich instead. Norwich is changing it’s uniform policies just like the DoD is changing it’s uniform policies. Get the fuck over yourselves.

How can you trust this bi**h. I don’t think the military academy is afraid o CAIR, they are nothing but a thug muslim group who think they can make the US change their culture. Better think again.

      Another attempt to VILLIFY Muslims by an historically racist instititution, it’s very founding to protect white slave owners from uprisings by their ‘property’.
      This artucle is another visvious attempt to foment resentment against an entire population of people based on the actions of a few. It directly contradicts the language as well as the spirit of the constitution of the United States that was written explicitly to prevent this kind of bigotry.
      Words like “the terror-funded Council of American-Islamic Relations” betray the manipulative intent of this “good old boy” language and evil intent.

Some of these muslims do this to test us and yes to creep in with sharia garbage. I hope this school fights to the end and this never changes the rules they have placed for ALL who want to join it. Screw these muslims who want special privileges. They don’t deserve them.

What is her objective in attending? 2) Why would America and We The People want her in our military? 3) If the Citadel gives into this headscarf request, what will be the next item she brings forth to force a change of rules? Stand firm!! Do not give in!! We do not need her in our military!!!

    I am a proud veteran with over 20 years service. The active duty military already allows Seiks and other religions to wear religious headgear and AFJROTC allows waiver for cadets; hence head coverings at Piscataway High and Bridgeton High.

    I personally put in a waiver for a Jewish Yamaca for a former cadet who is now proudly serving in the US Army. There is no religious test in this country and I believe that is what makes us great. Once we go down that road we will be just like the Shiites, Sunnis and Jewish religions that kill each other over religion and that is not a place we should want to go. Please, do not confuse the constitution as a religious document. If we do we unwittingly weaken our country.

    This young lady(or her parents?legal guardian) signed an agreement to follow the rule of the school when she elected to attend. Since she is no longer willing to abide by those rule she has broken the agreement. If the school is willing to allow her to attend if she follows its rule then fine if she does not want to follow the rules she is expelled JUST LIKE ANYONE ELSE!

You’re leaving your own country because “something” is wrong there, or it doesn’t have something you need. Why do you feel the need to turn your new country into the very thing that you just left? You want to come here, fine, and I’m even fine with you hanging onto your faith and beliefs, but if you’re not going to adopt those of the country you’re coming to, keep your mouth shut, your head low, and stay out of my way.
