Comment ne pas saluer l’incroyable sens de la contradiction …

Voire de la provocation …

Ou en tout cas de l’entreprise …

De la désormais célèbre et riche créatrice libano-australienne …

De la version plage de la  burkha ?

    Plus assez ronde !

Les bons angles peuvent vous faire apparaître plus fine ou plus ronde. Moi, je connais ceux qui me flattent. »

    « You cannot put women and men on an equal footing. It is against nature. In the workplace, you cannot treat a man and a pregnant woman in the same way. Women cannot do all the work done by men, because it is against their « delicate nature. Our religion regards motherhood very highly. Feminists don’t understand that, they reject motherhood. Women needed equal respect rather than equality. Justice is the solution to most of the world’s issues – including racism, anti-Semitism, and « women’s problems ».

    D’après Aheda Zanetti, 40% environ du marché est porté par des clientes non-musulmanes, pour certaines des femmes qui veulent se protéger du soleil avec ces tenues. Slim fit, grande taille, anti-coup de soleil, la gamme de vêtements proposée par Ahiida est vaste. Les prix oscillent de près de 80 euros (même si en ce moment certains produits sont en promotion à environ 60 euros) jusqu’à près de 130 euros, selon les coupes, par exemple. L’entreprise propose aussi des modèles pour enfants.

    « I wanted to change the Islamic symbol of a veil. I wanted to make sure we blended in with the Australian lifestyle. It’s just a name that I invented. It doesn’t mean anything. It’s really an Islamic two-piece bikini, but that sounds stupid. »

    The burkini didn’t originate … in the Middle East or a Muslim-majority nation, either. Instead, the burkini was crafted in Australia, designed for the white sandy beaches of Sydney. And though the garment is proving divisive in Europe, its creator says she was inspired by a desire for inclusion — and a healthy entrepreneurial spirit.

    You can trace the burkini’s origins to the early 2000s in Bankstown, a Sydney suburb with an ethnically diverse population where Zanetti lived. Zanetti was born in Tripoli, Lebanon, and moved to Australia when she was 2.

    In 2007, a nonprofit group called Surf Life Saving Australia launched a campaign to find Muslim lifeguards to work on Sydney’s beaches.

    But there was a problem finding female Muslim lifeguards. The more revealing outfits often worn by women in Australia didn’t sit well with many Muslim women. Although a variety of body-covering swimsuits had been produced for Muslim women over the years — a Turkish company named Hasema claims to have been producing them since the early 1990s — they were rare in Australia and not really suitable for lifeguards.

    Here’s where Zanetti came in. Surf Life Saving reached out to her to ask whether she could make a burkini suitable for lifeguards. She tweaked her design to help it stand up better to the work required of a lifeguard, making it a little tighter and a little shorter, and created a bold yellow-and-red design.

    It was an immediate hit with young Muslims in Sydney. « The burkini allowed me to participate in activities at a level I had never previously expected, » Mecca Laa Laa, a 20-year-old Muslim lifeguard in Sydney, told the Associated Press in 2009..


    In 2009, a public swimming pool in Emerainville excluded a burkini-wearing woman, on the grounds that she violated pool rules by wearing street clothes. But burkinis only erupted into a national political issue on Aug. 12 when the mayor of Cannes, a resort town on the French Riviera, banned burkinis (without legally defining what exactly they are) on the Cannes beaches because it represents Islamism. (…) This development astonishes me, someone who has argued that the burqa (and the niqab, a similar article of clothing that leaves a slit for the eyes) needs to be banned from public places on security grounds. Those formless garments not only hide the face, permitting criminals and jihadis to hide themselves but they permit the wearer to hide, say, an assault rifle without anyone knowing. Men as well as women use burqas as accessories to criminal and jihadi purposes. Indeed, I have collected some 150 anecdotes of bank robberies, abductions, murders, and jihadi attacks since 2002; Philadelphia has become the Western capital of burqas and niqabs as criminal accessories, with at least 34 incidents in 9 years. In contrast, the burkini poses no danger to public security. Unlike the burqa or niqab, it leaves the face uncovered; relatively tight-fitting, it leaves no place to hide weapons. Men cannot wear it as a disguise. Further, while there are legitimate arguments about the hygiene of large garments in pools (prompting some hotels in Morocco to ban the garment), this is obviously not an issue on the coastal beaches of France.Accordingly, beach burkinis should be allowed without restriction. Cultural arguments, such as the one made by Valls, are specious and discriminatory. If a woman wishes to dress modestly on the beach, that is her business, and not the state’s. It’s also her prerogative to choose unflattering swimwear that waterlogs when she swims. The Islamist threat to the West is very real, from the Rushdie rules to sex gangs, taharrush, polygyny, honor killings, partial no-go zones, and beheadings. With the influx to Europe of millions of unvetted Muslim migrants, these problems will grow along with the number of Islamists. Nerves are on edge and the political scene is changing rapidly, as symbolized by half the vote for president of Austria recently going to a hardline anti-immigration politician.Issues concerning Islam are arguably Europe’s number-one concern, ahead even of the European Union and the financial crisis; they need to be dealt with by confronting real problems, not by focusing on symbolic irrelevancies such as burkinis, halal shops, and minarets. Burqas and niqabs must be banned (as the German government may soon do), freedom of speech about Islam and Muslims must be reconfirmed, Saudi and Iranian funding for religious purposes must be cut, and a single legal code must apply to all. So, my advice: focus on these real problems and let Muslims wear what they wish to the beach.
