    Russia experienced, in early and mid-2000s, plenty of suicide bombing by female Chechen jihadis known as "shakhidkas". Most were widows of male jihadi fighters killed in battle by federal forces. You can see one such shakhidka with her pistol and suicide belt in the last photo in OP.

    Among other things, Sheikh Said Afandi, a famous cleric and Muslim scholar in Dagestan, in North Caucasus, who preached against wahhabism and jihadism, was assassinated by a female suicide bomber in 2012

    Etc.

    I don't know, perhaps its different in America or Israel. In Russia, women have certainly played their part in terrorism...

    lol I recall in 2015 I read about a couple local schoolgirls in Yakutsk, in Siberia (not Muslim), who thought it would be funny to walk around town dressed up like so

    Caused quite a ruckus. The police nearly shot one of them when saw her. Got damn lucky one of the cops saw in time her "suicide belt" was obviously a fake... Teenagers and their jokes...

    While it would probably not survive a constitutional challenge in the U.S., there is a valid reason for such a ban: inability to identify someone, should there be a terrorist attack. While it is true women are very rarely involved in terrorist attacks, there is no way to tell whether a man or a woman is being hidden by such garb.

    Can we pass laws to ban them too?

    Guy on the left in the middle row is the only one who can kind of pull it off, as much as such nonsense can be "pulled off." He alone can't make it right, though. So yes, government needs to shut this shit down, CHOP CHOP.

    However, as a percentage of the whole, women are extremely unlikely to be involved in terrorism or related activities. In the same way that men wearing man-buns are also extremely unlikely to be involved in terrorism or related activities.

    Pay attention. He said "very rarely" and NOT never, ever, ever.

    True, they are more victims in majority of cases, yes. Coerced and such...

    Its funny how people can spend 10 years saying “Europe is suffering under crippling political correctness, overrun with Muslims, powerless in no go zones, subject to Sharia law... and the left leftist left wing want to do that here too.”

    Then in the next breath see something like this and instead of saying “man I sure fell for that con, I should change my news sources” it’s a full 180 degree turn to “I imagine in my imagination that leftist lefties on the left DONT agree with Europe. The want the OPPOSITE of Europe here”.

    Then the next day. “The Netherlands is suffering under Sharia Law. It’s fact. Everyone knows that”.

    Well .... Left me rephrase that.

    Can you imagine if this ban was signed into law by President Trump?
    The lefties would move to DEFCON 1.

    If Obama implemented it, you might hear the odd mild tut, but Trump.....

    If not for double standards the left would have no standards at all.

    Security and feminists concerns aside, how about some Muslim men? The uncovered woman is sometimes viewed as less than chaste, to put it mildly, and used as justifications of assaults on women not wearing burqas. An Arab female not wearing the expected Burqa may become in more danger than even a western woman.
