Burqa Bandits

Filed under: Islam — David Jenkins @ 4:21 pm

It was only a matter of time:

Two burqa-wearing robbers have held up a French post office using a handgun concealed beneath an Islamic-style full veil, court officials said.

Officials said postal office staff let the pair through the security double doors of the banking branch near Paris, believing them to be veil-wearing Muslim women.

What is needed is an Islamic equivalent of Burn Your Bra: Burn Your Burqa. It could raise money to buy vitamin D for all burqa beleaguered ladies who never feel sun on their skin.



  1. Dhuaaa ! It was only a matter of time before someone ( crook or terrorist) came covered under a burqa. Mark my word, it will not be the only time, others will follow .
