    Posted: 16 October 2010 at 10:24am

Jeanne Ruby, a retired 63-year-old English teacher told police that she "snapped" when she spied the woman from the United Arab Emirates, whose whole face was covered, in a home furnishings shop in Paris' chic 15th arrondissement.

This is funny. To actually attack someone because of an article of clothing. Unfortunately hooliganism is still apparent.

Wow.

According to the article the attacker taught in Morocco and Saudi Arabia and hated how women walk three paces behind their husbands.

Yet, when she finds someone in niqab without a mahram (in the article it says the munaqibi was with a friend and two small children) she assaults her.  If the munaqibi was with a male that attacker would not have had the courage to do anything.

This is precisely the reason why we need our men walking ahead of us-to fend off the lunatics.

Seriously. I don't see how walking behind someone can be construed as subservience. The President of the U.S. or any other dignitary has bodyguards and other agents traveling ahead to clear the path and assure safety. 

Thanks abuayisha for sharing this interesting article.

Would having a male there truly prevent attacks? I mean what if it was a group of people?

I agree it won't prevent all attacks.. but its coomn sense... we tel women in self-defense, and most women know walk with a friend or a buddy.. common sense.
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. Rumi
