Mattel Introduces Muslim, Hijab-Wearing Barbie

Hijab Woman
I can't decide - is this normalizing female oppression, or Islamic terrorism?

Toy company, Mattel, maker of the iconic Barbie Doll, is the most recent to fall under the coordinated campaign by the elites to Islamize the West. They have introduced a Barbie wearing the Islamic hijab, the ritual face covering that Islam demands for Muslim women.

In a first, Mattel has released a hijab-wearing Barbie, modeled in the likeness of a Muslim woman, Ibtihaj Muhammad, who won an Olympic Bronze medal in fencing during the 2016 Beijing Olympic Games. Ibtihaj was the first American Olympian to wear a hijab during the competition.

The hijab – like the burqa – has long been associated with the more radical strains of Islam, and the burqa has already been banned in France, Austria and Belgium outright. Many other European nations currently have partial burqa bans, or are in the process of legislating against the terrorist garment.

The Barbie — which is dressed in a simple white fencing outfit and is holding a sabre — was presented to Muhammad on Monday at the Glamour Women of the Year LIVE Summit in Brooklyn, New York.

In a social media post, announcing the toy, Mattel wrote, “We are so excited to honor Ibtihaj Muhammad with one-of-a-kind Barbie doll! Ibtihaj continues to inspire women and girls everywhere to break boundaries.” The hijab doll will be evadible in stores in 2018.

“Through playing with Barbie, I was able to imagine and dream about who I could become,” Muhammad said. “I love that my relationship with Barbie has come full circle and now I have my own doll wearing a hijab that the next generation of girls can use to play out their own dreams.”

The Editor-in-Chief of Glamour magazine, Cindi Leive lionized the muslim woman effusively, breathlessly recalling how Ibtihaj, who is 31 years of age, “has challenged every stereotype — which to me is the definition of a modern American woman. … She will play a tremendous role in ensuring that girls of the future see themselves represented fully and beautifully in our culture.”

Muhammad Ibtihaj was one of Time Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People” of the year 2016 and had told a news source that she hopes that her story would help break down “stereotypes and misconceptions” about Muslims in America and all over the world.

In February, Muhammad had claimed that she was detained by U.S. Customs. “I can’t tell you why it happened to me but I know that I’m Muslim. I have an Arabic name,” she had said in an interview. “And even though I represent Team USA and I have that Olympic hardware, it doesn’t change how you look and how people perceive you.”
