    PARIS — A French parliamentary panel will stop short of recommending a ban on face-covering veils in the street and instead will ask for the garb to be banned in public facilities such as hospitals, the panel's president says.

    The 32-member panel's report due Tuesday culminates a six-month inquiry into the wearing of all-encompassing veils that began after President Nicolas Sarkozy said in June that they are "not welcome" on French territory.

    Andre Gerin, a Communist lawmaker who heads the multiparty panel, said the report contains a "multitude of proposals" to ban such garb in places like schools, hospitals and other public buildings, but not private buildings or on the street.

    Gerin stressed the need to move "progressively" toward a law banning the attire in the streets and to work "hand in hand" with Muslim leaders and associations.

    A 2004 French law bans Muslim headscarves from classrooms.

    Muslim religious leaders have warned that a law banning face-covering attire in the streets could stigmatize Muslims and drive some to extremism. They were joined last week by Roman Catholic and Jewish leaders who said they consider such a drastic step unnecessary.

    France has Western Europe's largest Muslim population, estimated at some 5 million. Only a tiny minority of Muslim women wear such attire, usually a "niqab" pinned across the face to cover all but the eyes.

    Critics of the veils call them a gateway to extremism, an insult to gender equality and an offense to France's secular system.

    So right. The French have been allowing Muslims to migrate to France for quite some time. They have a huge Muslim population now. Gee. Wonder what will happen if they try to impose this law?? Ya think mayby riots, suicide bombers and gee, mayby Al Queda will take a good look at France??

    Nope. Don't think it will pass. The Europeans won't do anything that will make them the target of Al Queda or anyone else.

    Actually...if they pass it, then Al Qaeda will move it's focus from the USA to France.

    It's their country.

    Perhaps they don't want it to become something other than France.

    A little late to worry about that, Is it to late for US to learn from their lack of vision?
