The Veil is Islamism’s Symbol

Baron Bodissey at the Gates of Vienna offers an eye opener of an essay translated from the Danish Left Wing publication "Information"! Wherein, the author compares the symbolism of the Veil and Burkha with the Nazi Swastika. Title above is Link

This is a comparison I feel is specious at best since a Swastika is a Hindu symbol of good fortune and power....only becoming associated with a form of human evil as it was adopted by the German Nazis of the 1930's.
However....let's say that it is noteworthy that "some" Europeans are sufficiently disturbed by the symbolism of the Arabic dress that is prescribed by Islamofascists that the two symbols are being compared and linked in the minds of such people. The "leftist" intellectuals of EU are hardly prone to recognizing or admitting the threat that the cult of death represents.

Perhaps something is changing?

The veil is a cultural symbol, orginating in the deserts of Arabia..
A convert in the West wearing the veil, is like a Christian insisting on wearing middle eastern dress becuase Jesus lived out there.

I understand Bard....the essay is looking at the garb as a symbol.
My take on the essay from Denmark is that this reaction from a traditionally left wing group publication is a change in attitude. The European left has been solidly supporting the ideology of cultural diversity and blindly ignoring the very real threat to their society posed by extremist and perhaps even common immigrants from the ME and Africa who place their allegiance to Islam ahead of any other.

The hysteria that the Nazi Swastika generates as a symbol of evil is now being associated with this other symbol.

This represents a very real change in attitude for the Euro-Intellectual leftists.
