Iran’s Ayatollah exploits Jewish Olympian Aly Raisman for pro-hijab propaganda

The Iranian mullahcracy is indefatigably committed to the destruction of the Jewish state, which would inevitably involve a new genocide of the Jews. Their Jew-hatred is derived from the Qur’an and is part of their commitment to Islam. But the Ayatollah Khamenei is not above pretending to defend a Jewish woman, Olympian Aly Raisman, from sexual assault — by recommending that she wear the cloth coffin that is required of women in Iran. His hypocrisy — as well as his misogyny — is manifest. We’re supposed to believe now that Khamenei doesn’t want Jewish women to be sexually assaulted, as well as killed? Yet the Western left will likely applaud him for his sensitivity.

“Iran’s Ayatollah exploits Olympian Aly Raisman for hijab propaganda,” by Batya Jerenberg, World Israel News, October 7, 2018 (thanks to Mark):

Iran’s Ayatollah Ali Khamenei presented the Islamic hijab as the answer to sexual assault by posting a video in a Wednesday tweet that featured recent cases, leading off with Jewish Olympian and gold medalist Aly Raisman.

The video flashes images related to the #MeToo movement, in which hundreds of women have come forward publicly about their sexual harassment. It then blames the harassment on the Western mentality. Khamenei offers “Islam’s proposal to resolve it” – the traditional Islamic head covering, or hijab, that only allows a woman’s face to show.

“By introducing hijab, Islam has shut the door on a path that would pull women towards such deviation,” Khamenei says in the video. “Islam does not allow” sexual abuse or violence against women, he says. Iranian women are seen in the video clad in black hijabs and chadors (the tent-like, long-sleeved robe that goes down to the feet). It ends with the assertion that such clothing gives women “freedom and identity.”

Jewish leading lady

Surprising about the video is the choice of leading lady – Aly Raisman, the American gymnast and two-time gold medal winner in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. She is also proudly Jewish, having lit the torch for the Maccabiah Games in Israel in 2013. Raisman came out in favor of  holding a moment of silence in memory of the Israeli victims in the 1972 Munich Massacre at the Olympic Games….
