Holy Creeping Dhimmitude, Batman!

Hijab Day at McMasters University...

where a professor organized a Wear My Hijab day. Women, whether Muslim or not, were invited to wear a head scarf all day to show support for those who regularly wear it...Professor Muriel Walker, who teaches French literature at Mac, organized the hijab day.

"It can be difficult for women to wear the hijab," she said. "I want this to help sensitize people about Islam ... you should not be afraid of Muslims." Walker, who moved from France 15 years ago, is not Muslim, but has worn a hijab on Fridays, an important day of prayer for Muslims, for about three months.

My head is exploding. Hijab by the numbers.
