Unveiled Insult

Last month a “French” Muslima’s treatment by the police prompted the onset of riots, carbecues, and other traditional forms of Muslim civil disobedience. It seems that Nimouna Hambili ran afoul of France’s no-burka law, and reacted strongly against being detained by police for refusing to remove her niqab.

Ms. Hambili has just been convicted and sentenced to six months in prison, of which she will actually serve half. That’s a significant sentence — harsher than those imposed on immigrant child-rapists in Germany or Sweden.

Many thanks to Sassy for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Video transcript:

0:00   Nimouna Hambili and her lawyer this morning at the Toulouse Court House.
0:04   This 37-year-old woman is appearing in court for contempt,
0:08   rebellion, and death threats against a public official.
0:12   I am very angry with them, especially since I have never
0:16   been convicted. I have a clean criminal record, and moreover,
0:20   to be so impugned, to be so singled out with respect to my veil,
0:24   which is and remains an element of freedom of religious worship.
0:28   The facts go back to last month in this video filmed by an amateur.
0:32   In the clip, we only see in the background where the police
0:36   apprehend a woman in a niqab. These images went viral.
0:40   That evening and for four days, the areas of La Reynerie, Bagatelle,
0:44   La Faourette became the scene of violent clashes
0:48   between groups of youths and police detachments.
0:52   Two policemen are official witnesses. The defendant’s lawyer
0:56   challenges their version of the facts. We consider Ms. Hambili
1:00   has been subjected to police violence, and that is why a complaint has been lodged
1:04   in which we ask the judge for additional information, that is, not to try Ms Hambili
1:08   today but to appoint a judge who will carry out a thorough investigation
1:12   to find out what happened. The magistrates refused to hear them.
1:16   They sentenced her to six months, of which three months will be served in prison.
1:20   This is more than the prosecutor asked for. Nimouna Hambili will appeal this decision.

  1. I’m big on not letting niqabis into the country in the first place, but once that decision has been made, I’m not in favour of jailing them for that alone, either. I certainly wouldn’t hire them for public service jobs, and I’d find all sorts of ways of encouraging them towards reform, but jail? No.

    This is thus a rare case where I have some sympathy for the Islamo-crowd.

    I think that France has much bigger problems with the Islamo-crowd than niqabis walking around, and that this is completely the wrong end of where to start in dealing with the problem. The major problem is demographic, not sumptuary.

    Be in pointed out that nobody in the USA would think of doing this kind of thing. Yes, the “big bad USA”.

    • I am also against jail them. That costs money. I would deport instead.

    • I don’t have sympathy for the Islamo-crowd over this, as it is a false dichotomy – freedom of dress vs. police state, where a niqab is seen as freedom of dress, which in many cases it isn’t.

      So what plays out is society condoning encouraging police brutality ( it exists in France and not just ethnic but state vs. individual) . This is a trap, as that line may also be (and sometimes is) redirected against any individual.

      So if we say Islamic dress has helped seed this public direction, I am not going to feel sympathetic, instead I will question why own country is becoming dictatorial but without accepting Islam as the excuse.

      The result of that question will look something like :

      We have own country public mismanagement that has created ethnic tensions which the state authorities are not reacting to meaningfully but instead are using to either promote own power or create distractions.

      I.e. they don’t address that it is the number of migrants which is intolerable but just make out falsely that they are controlling the circumstance, stepping on native culture rights in the process.

      That is a race to the bottom.

  2. [1] At 0:14, this woman deliberately exposes her luscious lips to public view. The hussy.

    [2] She is out in public, standing in front of the SALLE D’AUDIENCE 6. Where is her mahram? (The lawyer cannot be her mahram.)

    • Not sure if this can make the lawyer her mahram, but he does look like the cat that got the cream.

      ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Salim, the freed slave of Abu Hadhaifa, lived with him and his family in their house. She (i. e. the daughter of Suhail came to Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) and said:

      Salim has attained (purbety) as men attain, and he understands what they understand, and he enters our house freely, I, however, perceive that something (rankles) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifa, whereupon Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said to her: Suckle him and you would become unlawful for him, and (the rankling) which Abu Hudhaifa feels in his heart will disappear. She returned and said: So I suckled him, and what (was there) in the heart of Abu Hudhaifa disappeared.
      In-book reference Book 17, Hadith 33
      Reference Sahih Muslim Hadith 1453a
      USC-MSA web (English) reference Book 8, Hadith 3424

      It leaves little doubt what else the hussy may expose to other non familial guys.

      The laws and regulations, of islam, tangling and sucking on the French constitution.

  3. We gain nothing when they come. We loose nothing when they leave. In their home countries they suffer almost no penalty for killing us.
    Remind me again, why have we not yet killed the politicians that smuggled these “people” into our countries?
    How come only low-life, illiterate savages get to kill respectable members of the ruling class? Who made that rule?

  4. It may be that a ban on these head coverings serves a counter purpose. Such a ban can make it a bit less obvious to the general public how far advanced in numbers their anti France population has become. It also presents a trivial response as substitute for a realistic one.

    A clever follower of Mohamet would howl in protest, but not too much protest, just enough to deceive the gullible. They will have ample time for head coverings when their numbers enable them to rule.

  5. The question;- Is the “new” 1400 year old ideology as bad as an old ideology of over 70 years ago.
    Is it ok to wear armbands, wave flags, read supportive books, etc.?

    In liberation 70 years ago, justice was extremely rough, as France, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium sorted out collaborators of that political ideology.

    If we put down the previous ideology, then when people become badly affected by the “new” 1400 year ideology, like cars, trucks driving down footpaths, bombings, shootings, rapes, knifing, grenades, acid attacks, etc..

    As causalities increase, the grief, loss, traumatic stress disorder, and rage from an increasing number of families, neighbours, friends, survivors will increase in their demand for wanton justice.

    At this stage, it is bottled by so-called democratic majority government.

    Would you put up with the “equivalent armband” on the face of a woman?
    Would you put up with a judge that decides that a Nazi symbol is ok? but sees a slice of bacon as a jail-able offense.
    Quote a book that is used in religious, ideology services, and be fined and risk imprisonment.
    Using your taxation system, to gain welfare, the sense of going past the “spirit of the law” to subvert it to another ideology.


    Mike, I do agree that the problem is demographic, only because a certain demographic carries that ideology!
    If the new immigrants want to be French, supported the French educational institutions, supported the rule of French law and constitution.

    However the “new” ideology on many fronts are pressuring a population. Demographics can work in reverse, as desperation may push the current majority to make an unequivocal stand, that is if it is understood that ;-
    “An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.” – Winston Churchill

    The government, the judiciary may get it, when banlieues ‘no go’ tenements are burnt, cars are burnt, mosques are burnt, simply because enough French people have feelings too, that all reason is gone in their rage.
    “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable”. – John F. Kennedy

    I am not advocating that, but one wonders when things will change. It will still be some time yet, though timing can be everything, then it will be more than likely a close run for survival.
    It is do you ‘pick your fights’ that you can win, or just fight all and sundry.

    “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed;
    if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly;
    you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.
    There may even be a worse case.
    You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
    – Winston S Churchill

    Spain had over 600 years of ‘reconquista’, battles, betrayals, wars, hudna, massacres, until the final expulsion of the muslims/moors through using the ultimate pressure and demands of the Spanish Inquisition.

    We need as a civilization learn more facts, of religion, history.
    Sure there are “feelings” but they need to be based on reality.
    Based on truth, reality will allow the true feelings of sadness, rage, etc be more accurately expressed in reason, and so be more effective.

    • Correct. I think that the Muslim uniform and the kafir has the same relationship as the nazi uniform and the Jew or as Bill Warner would say the KKK hood.

      It is an assertion of the superiority of the Muslim over the kafir pursuant to the Sharia. It is a political statement, not a fashion statement.

  6. Frustrated French Functionaries Making a “Statement ” to the French government. The Primitive Muslim Culture only belongs in Backward Nations. To encourage ; or even allow practicing Muslims into what is left of a Civilized Christian Nation is simple { and obvious} suicide. The local’s reaction to this Muslim woman’s ” Head Tent ” is simply evidence of their frustration with their own government that allows and encourages an Alien Culture into the country.

  7. After seeing parts of her face I think her wearing the burka was for our benefit, not hers.

  8. I thought the penalty in France for public mask wearing is a ticket and fine. If you don’t show up to pay the ticket, then the police can bring you in.

  9. C’mon. If you woke up in the middle of the night and saw that ugly creep-show peering at you from the foot of your bed …

    Give me a break! Why are we pretending that these are normal people? They’re NOT.

    You like weird foreigners? I’d trade you a thousand of those creepshow freaks for one honest aboriginal.
