This is a very well written article Roswitha....thank you for posting it. I'm going to repost the link as the one I found had to be copied and pasted into a browser to work...

'I felt more welcome in the Bible belt'


"It is at this point that I get a bit perplexed by what exactly the British public wants. On the one hand, they are always complaining about Muslims refusing to integrate and be part of the "mainstream" community. On the other hand, it's become painfully clear that when we do come out into the mainstream, we make them uncomfortable. Granted, my swimsuit may not blend in, but the refusal by people like Caldwell to allow Muslim women to create a middle ground of interaction in the UK forces them into the extremes.

The online debate has created in me a sense of fear, and as a result I have not been back to the gym in the past month, even after assurances from the general manager at David Lloyd's Oxford branch that his management team would do their best to ensure I had safe access. The general manager agreed with me that things had spiralled out of proportion, and after I showed him my swimsuit, not only stated that it met swimsuit standards, but that it was now being offered for purchase at all David Lloyd's clubs throughout the UK. But Caldwell's actions had the desired effect: I stayed at home."

Library Lady, he smiles because she finally agreed to cool off in the water and be with him and her family.

Well, I don't know if anyone has considered this, but she could have a prosthetic arm and hand because she lost it in some type of unpleasant action. Thus, her husband, who loves his wife dearly, is happy to see her enjoying herself.

I guess that would solve the problem with having to shave your legs and arm pits before going swimming.



Do you HAVE to shave your legs and armpits before swimming? Is there a law for this?

Isn't it wonderful though, how this lady finally got her side of the story shown on one of the UK's largest and most read (non-tabloid) newspapers and with all her opinions of other people! There is one positive apect of freedom of speech.

Are you joking?!! It's disgusting. How many of these women, GIVEN A CHOICE, would choose to go swimming like this? More and more these days, people are less tolerant of muslim 'fanatics' as AK party remains in power. In fact, these burquas are banned in Turkey.
