Even Arabs Won't Employ Women with Veils

So, even Arabs don't want to hire women wearing a face veil? But aren't we told by CAIR and the ISNA that anyone that would require a woman to take her veil off must be motivated by bigotry and hate? Crossroads of Arabia:

The 22-year-old says several potential employers in the United Arab Emirates have turned her down because she wore the niqab, a face veil that usually leaves only the eyes uncovered....

"No one takes women with niqab in the retail sector," said [Aysha] Obeid who unsuccessfully applied for jobs at two retail outlets. She is now looking for back office administrative jobs where she believes she may have more chance of being employed.

Sweet, sweet irony.
