The mainstream media and Islamic supremacist groups are constantly preoccupied with the supposed plight of women who wear hijab in the U.S., who, they claim, are routinely harassed and victimized. The women who are really harassed and victimized, however, are those who dare not to wear hijab in countries such as Iran where it is enforced. Brava, Nazi Paikidze.
Note the viciousness of the Washington Post, in referring to her as “the U.S. champion who once told a magazine she would ‘do everything I can to help more girls get into chess.’”
Some things are more important than chess. Among them, for the Washington Post, is running interference for Sharia and Islamic supremacism.
“‘I will NOT wear a hijab’: U.S. chess star refuses to attend world championships in Iran,” by Cleve R. Wootson Jr., Washington Post, October 6, 2016:
As one of the most successful women to ever play the male-dominated game of chess, Nazi Paikidze is used to having her moves watched closely.
Her latest has drawn international attention: Paikidze announced last week that she will boycott February’s Women’s World Chess Championship in Iran because the players will have to wear hijabs.
Paikidze’s decision will deprive the tournament of one of the game’s brightest stars and biggest draws — the U.S. champion who once told a magazine she would “do everything I can to help more girls get into chess….
“Some consider a hijab part of culture,” Paikidze said in an Instagram post announcing her decision. “But, I know that a lot of Iranian women are bravely protesting this forced law daily and risking a lot by doing so. That’s why I will NOT wear a hijab and support women’s oppression.”
