As salam alaykoum, I'm and American-Egyptian and am proud that Umm Ahmed dresses like me! I was born and raised in the USA and came from an extremely liberal family. I remember my parents detesting the hijab when I committed to wearing it while a teen. But, thank Allah, every moment in hijab/khimar is a such a sweet blessing. Americans, in general, are very respectful towards Muslim women in hijab. I'm proud of my hijab and of Umm Ahmed, too!

I find it quite amusing how the most caustic, demeaning coverage of Najla is found on a newspaper titling itself in Arabic.

Shedding all remnants of your culture doesn't make you more civilised nor modern.

As an Egyptian living overseas, I am proud that this civil servant is the absolute opposite of the last, who was hedonistic, arrogant and indifferent to the plight of Egyptians. Bismillah mashallah! I am proud to call myself an Egyptian now.

Some people feel so inferior that until you look like westerners, you are not civilised. This is inferiority complex of the worst type. Thye are not proud of anything theirs, they just look to others to efine civilistation for them.
