I speak of my own opinion and I would like to say that everyone is welcome in Qatar, except people I don't like, like this woman. Women in Qatar respect themselves, unlike Jennifer who disrespects herself, mainly for selling her soul to Satan, and for shamelessly jumping around with her disgusting body and clothes. Say whatever you want non-muslims, we are different from you. Our role-model is Aysha, Fatima and Khadija, best women to have ever lived on earth. They where fully veiled and covered, full of pride and power, strong and great women, at the same time completely obedient to their Creator, Allah. We have a different definition of honor, pride and beauty, so if you don't understand, it's ok, but do not try and convince us of your sick perverted view of women and what they should wear and how they should act, thinking that its freedom and women's rights. Women's rights are protected mostly by teachings of Islam. Quran and Mohammed PBUH is were we learned how to treat our mothers, wifes and daughters, how to respect them and love them and protect them. Ever wonder why a lady can walk safely at midnight in Qatar and never ever fear for herself? I wonder how safe it is to walk in the US or EU at night ? Facts are always recorded.
