Florida Family Association reported on July 12, 2017 that American Eagle Outfitters used photographs of Halima Aden wearing a hijab in its latest product promotion.  Halima Aden is the Muslim woman who wore a hijab on the cover of allure magazine.  American Eagle is also selling a special denim hijab.

Brit.com reported on July 15, 2017:  "American Eagle Debuted a Denim Hijab and Chose a Somali Refugee to Model It.  American Eagle has been seriously stepping up its inclusivity game as of late. Not only did the brand ban the use of Photoshop and retouching from its latest ads following huge successes with similar initiatives for its sister site, Aerie, but the retailer is now joining the likes of Nike with the release of its first-ever hijab."

It is predominantly the ignorant, greedy, and/or leftist part of the American market place that is helping Islamist Sharia doctrine to advance in the United States.  Whether attempting to appear politically correct to their leftist customers or deliberately targeting Islamist customers, their embracement and glamorization of Islamist tenets advances Sharia law in America.

American Eagle Outfitters' product promotion is pushing the hijab which symbolizes and epitomizes Islamist oppression of women and is rejected by 57% of the Muslim women living in America.

Two Muslim women, Asra Q. Nomani and Hala Arafa, wrote a column titled “Wearing the Hijab in Solidarity Perpetuates Oppression” that was published on January 14, 2016 by The New York Times.  The column states in part:  In the eight times the word hijab, or a derivative, appears in the Koran, it means a “barrier” or “curtain,” with spiritual, not sartorial, meaning. Today, well-intentioned women are wearing headscarves in interfaith “solidarity.” But, to us, they stand on the wrong side of a lethal war of ideas that sexually objectifies women as vessels for honor and temptation, absolving men of personal responsibility.   This purity culture covers, segregates, subordinates, silences, jails and kills women and girls around the world.

Pew Research found that only forty three percent (43%) of American Muslim women wear hijabs according to an article published by NPR on April 21, 2011.  The NPR article states in part “The split between women who've covered and women who've never done so has existed for decades. But now a generation of women is taking off the headscarf, or hijab.”  Therefore, after six years of “a generation of women taking off the hijab” the number of Muslim women now wearing the hijab in America is likely even less than forty three percent.  NPR reports:   Rasmieyh Abdelnabi, 27, grew up attending an Islamic school in Bridgeview, Ill., a tiny Arab enclave on Chicago's southwest side. It's a place where most Muslim women wear the hijab.  Abdelnabi explains why she stopped wearing the hijab.  She says that Islam teaches modesty — but wearing the hijab is taking it a step too far.  "I've done my research, and I don't feel its foundation is from Islam," she says. "I think it comes from Arab culture."

The majority of Muslim women in America reject the hijab because:

•    The hijab symbolizes Islamist oppression.
•    These Muslim women live in America where the law of the land gives them that right.
•    These Muslim women want to Americanize their appearance and blend in not stand out.

American Eagle Outfitters certainly has the right to produce and promote products it chooses.  Likewise, you have the same right to express disappointment and patronize companies that do not sell such products.  Please urge American Eagle Outfitters to sell products that embrace the liberties of the United States Constitution instead of Islamist tenets that oppress women and minorities.

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send to urge American Eagle Outfitters (DSW) officials to discontinue selling the hijab which is a symbol of Islamist oppression.
