Now Jewish men are wearing burkha’s

Are Jewish men so oppressed by their fellow women that they have resorted to wearing the Burkha – face veil?

Well they’re not exactly burkha’s, they go way beyond burkha’s, as there’s no slit for the eyes, but that’s the whole point – to stop the men from seeing all the wicked, temptations around him.

After all, how is one supposed to communicate when the man you are talking to has his face covered, nevermind the potential security risks at airports.

The Akh understands modesty and averting one’s gaze from “immodestly dressed” women, however blindfolding oneself is perhaps a little too extreme don’t you think?
