Politician DEFIES ORDER To Wear Hijab During Saudi Arabia Visit – FURIOUS Muslims Instantly Make Threats
A German minister has defied Saudi Arabia expectations by defiantly refusing to wear a hijab while on a visit to the Muslim nation. She says that women have every right to dress as they see fit just as men do.
This has the Islamic extremists rearing their ugly heads with the furious threats. A reaction that has become commonplace throughout the world today.

Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen's stand came a week after Chancellor Angela Merkel called for the burka to be banned.
Von der Leyen was in Saudi capital Riyadh to meet deputy crown prince Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud, where she voiced her annoyance at the expectation that women cover up.
But it sparked anger in the deeply-conservative state, where social media users called for her to be arrested.
It comes in a week when a Saudi woman was arrested for taking off her veil in public.
The German minister shunned traditional Saudi attire, opting instead for a dark blue suit when she met her counterpart at the Divan Palace in the country's capital.
Her decision sparked anger on Twitter in Saudi Arabia, Al Bawaba reported.
One Twitter user wrote: 'Ok so why didn't they arrest her? The hypocrisy and double standards.'
Another posted: 'The German Defense Minister: Not wearing the hijab in Saudi was deliberate. This is an insult to Saudi Arabia!'
Speaking of her refusal to wear full-length robes, known as the abaya, Das Bild reports, she said: 'No woman in my delegation has to wear the abaya.
'The right to choose your own clothing is a right shared by men and women alike. It annoys me, when women are to pushed into wearing the abaya.'
The newspaper reported that although servants looked 'astonished' at the sight of the German minister in traditional dress, it did not spark any protests.
All women in Saudi Arabia – local and foreign – are legally required to wear an abaya – which is a traditional full-body covering.
Last week Angela Merkel called for a burka ban, saying the 'full veil is not appropriate' in Germany.
The German chancellor told her conservative CDU party conference that wearing the burka should be outlawed 'wherever that is legally possible'.
Germany is a nation that has become overrun with Muslim migrants within the last few years and it has caused a massive backlash. Finally German politicians are understanding that their citizens will not put up with the Islamization of their country any longer. Unfortunately it may be far too little far too late.
We support the stand this German minister has taken to stand up for her right to avoid covering her face, head and body despite pressure from fundamentalist Muslims.
WATCH: ( You probably won't understand much of the dialogue but you get the idea. NO HIJAB!)
Recently Angela Merkel called for a ban on the burka in Germany:
SHARE this if you think women should NEVER be forced to wear a hijab anywhere at anytime!
