Marine Le Pen refused to put a bag over her head and bow before the "Grand Mufti" of Lebanon on Tuesday.

Instead, she chose to cancel their meeting.

From RT:
French right-wing presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has refused to wear a headscarf for a meeting with the Lebanese Grand Mufti. In her statement, Le Pen said she would not cover herself up and cancelled the encounter.

Le Pen was scheduled to meet Sheikh Abdellatif Deriane, the Grand Mufti of Lebanon, in his office in Beirut on Tuesday.

After arriving, Le Pen was asked to wear a headscarf, but refused. According to AFP, Le Pen was given a veil by Mufti's aides.



"You can pass on my respects to the Grand Mufti, but I will not cover myself up," Le Pen told reporters.

She added that at a meeting with Egypt's Ahmed el-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar (a prestigious Sunni Islam title), back in 2015, she wasn't asked to wear a headscarf.


The Grand Mufti's press office said that Le Pen had been informed beforehand of their requirement, Reuters reports.
What's the problem, lady?

They told you they wanted you to put a burlap sack on with some eyeholes cut out, haven't you heard that's the new feminism?
