You know, this was supposed to be a post making fun of the Burqini ( A Burqa-Bikini, don't ask) until I read this:
Mecca Laalaa is the lone exception. Instead of a barely there bikini,
she's in a burqini – a top-to-toe two-piece lycra suit complete with
hijab, or Islamic head covering.
Ms. Laalaa is one of 24 young people of Arab descent who signed up for a 10-week surf lifesaving-training course.
Mecca Laalaa? Mecca..Laalaa? What?
Ok, maybe I am just rusty, but dear arab readers, does that sound like an arab name to you? Cause it seems made up to me. I have never met a girl called Mecca or seen the last name Laalaa anywhere. It almost sounds like a parody of what an arab name should sound like.
