Images of Women in Hijab for Target Practice

posted by Suzy Shuraym

This news story is so astonishing it’s hard to believe the whole thing really happened.

According to Kate Wiltrout, writing for The Virginian-Pilot, the United States Navy “will not use a target depicting a Muslim woman holding a gun at a new training range for SEALs in Virginia Beach”.

A woman in a hijab? Well, OK. SEALs have probably been shot at in Iraq or Afghanistan by women wearing headdresses, so that might be a legitimate practice target (among others).

But, as they say on the television infomercials, there’s more. On the wall behind the woman’s head were verses from the Qu’ran.

What idiot in the Department of Defense thought this target was a good idea?

    It is not new to the people that US Seals/Army are fighting against terrorist most especially the Iraq’s and Afghan’s. But it is not acceptable enough to violet or disrespect the Muslims beliefs and custom. The Muslim women wearing a
    hijab does not represent the terrorist, and this is not enough reason to make them a practice target.
