    This is the first time that the Saudi's have allowed women to compete.

    One step at a time...

    do you honestly think you i want to live under muslim law. do what you want but don't impose your beliefs on me. really all i see is violence from muslims. go ahead shoot
  • Jackal bleep 2012/08/02 06:52:57
    I was pointing out the fact that you think Muslims are trying to take your rights when Christians has already taking the rights of others. As long as the comfortable life of Christians go undisturbed, Christians will continue to force their laws on other American people.

    I'd like to see a brief list of how your rights are being taken away by Christians.

    Closing of Government Facilities on Sundays and Holidays.
    Freedom of Speech
    Freedom of Religion
    Freedom of Expression
  • sockpuppet Jackal 2012/08/02 19:41:44
    The closing of facilities is not a 'rights' issue. Please elaborate on the other three, though.
  • Jackal sockpuppet 2012/08/04 04:47:01
    Not to worry, I am writing an article on it... I haven't forgotten about you.
  • sockpuppet Jackal 2012/08/04 04:49:52
    No need to elaborate so fully... I just thought you might have a quick example on hand.

    Well it was such a long post, I decided to make an article on it.

    The risk is hers to take, hopefully this risk won't be purposely exploited.

    She is representing her country. Man.........America is try to tell everybody they don't need to do this or that. Lets mind our own business for a change. Bring all the boys and girls home from around the world in war torn countries. Put them along the US n Mexico US n Canadian borders to protect the country.
  • geneticmistake 2012/08/02 04:37:16
    People want religious freedom in the US so why not in the Olympics? She became an accomplished athlete in judo wearing the headscarf. Obviously not a safety issue.
  • Charge 2012/08/02 04:30:31
    If it doesn't give an advantage, why not?

    I'm going to say 'Right' because it would seem to me she is already competing with this thing (??) but here is my concern:
    For about 10 minutes I was in Judo (enough to realize I preferred Karate down the hall) and my understanding is that they have to grab around the head and neck yes?
    So, if this IS some kind of unfair advantage then no.. she has to sit it out.

    But if she is already qualifying in the shame hat then I dunno... whats the difference?
  • chamchamgal 2012/08/02 03:23:45
    Bunch of haters out here.

  • Horace 2012/08/02 03:19:28
    Its obviously not against Olympic rules if they are letting her compete and since she has obviously been competing wearing a headscarf her whole life if she got into the Olympics I doubt it would put her at any disadvantage that she would be unprepared for. I see no reason not to let her compete the way she feels comfortable.
