  1. I hope I am not going to be expected to wear this. Men should learn to control themselves and women wear what you want. Don’t allow religion written by men control you.

  2. This is making its round on all the local news(very slow news day) and she is being touted as: "historic", "heroic","game changer","groundbreaker"…all by just wearing a bee-keeping suit to the beach.

  3. @2:06 Yes. Because last time I went over my Muslim friends house, he had Sports Illustrated magazines stacked on his living room table. Where is the eye rolling emo – oh there it is 🙄

  4. This is disgusting and ridiculous. This is why they are taking over the West, cause stupid lefty’s keep facilitating it. It’s not about modesty. Dumb people believe the lies.

  5. Please stop drinking the Kool-aid they're handing out in Minnesota and Michigan. Hijab was designed to be worn for brief periods when a woman just HAD to leave the house. They sure as hell weren't meant to be worn at the beach. If you want to know about true Islam ask a woman living in Iran, Irag, Saudia Arabia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Morocco, Algeria, Malaysia, Bangladesh, etc. Anyone normalizing the ideology encompassed by Islam either are to lazy to do their research or in favor of hate and violence. Islamic doctrine is supremacist, misogynistic, oppressive and inherently deceitful. It's in the Qu'ran you idiots. It's written down.

  6. Its a fine line between this and that……the skin can not be covered up all the time it's unhealthy ….The skin needs to breath and get some air and sun sometime.

  7. What is all that fuss ?? If she wants to feel the sweat over all day because she think men are all pervets it's her problem she misses something she will never know like feeling great (like people with a minimum off common sense )in beaches taking fresh air water and sun, to play volay ball, badminton etc(with a T-shirt it's enough na ? ) CAN'T WAIT FOR SUMMER !!!!

  8. Wow wow She is beautiful💯👑🙏👆🇸💙🇸💙👈💯💖💕💖👏👏😍😘🌋🌋

  9. Worst thing I'VE ever seen. Muslims trying to infiltrate everything and anything American and then changing it. Go back to your own country if you don't want to live American culture.

  10. They would order her to leave an American public swimming pool wearing that, telling her she can't swim wearing "street clothes." I've seen it happen with a girl wearing cut-off jeans and a T-shirt.

  11. Wow m.a halima aden ❤️❤️🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴🇸🇴❤️
