Netherlands may ban burka
The gov't of the Netherlands are id-juts....(sigh).
Not surprising, although makes you wonder given the amount of potenial terrorists arrested there recently.
Makes you wonder about what? The number of potential terrorist running aound Denmark.
Well really with all the BS England is putting up with anymore maybe the Netherlands has the right idea. I mean come on, the banks have stopped giving out piggy banks, cause they're so offensive.
having lived in Danmark....i would bet none...now holland (aka nederlands) i would bet quite a few
Let's see how well the French ban turns out.
Anyone know anything about that?
Personally, I think requiring turbans, viels, etc is so stupid
that the requirement merits suppression- ie you can't tell
your wife, husband, children, or anyone else to wear headress.
Now, the state can't, and should not go poking into each home,
but schools are completely different- there the state can
break unrighteous authority outside the home by forbidding all headress.
So unless the French situation totally backfires, then I say let the Dutch
go in the same direction.
I assume Muslim women would still be able to wear extremely modest clothing. It's not like they will be wearing mini-skirts and halter tops, for goodness sake. Burqas are a pathetic method for men supress and control women to an extreme. I say, you go, Netherlands. Have a huge burqa bonfire, and roast a pig over it while you're at it.
Hey, I wouldn't wear one of those things if faced with death. But that's me. I have a choice. What if the women WANT to wear that?
I don't know, I might like to wear one on a bad hair day. And it could be good at work- how can anyone give me more work, if they aren't sure it is me under there?
But seriously, women may like burqas like they like not being allowed to drive, and like being beaten for going out without a male escort. It isn't just the burqa, it is what it represents, and what it means in countries under Islamist rule. As we all know by now, it is part of a whole system that takes away all women's rights to make decisions for themselves. Imagine not even having the power to dress yourself as you would like. Imagine having to beg a male family member to acompany you to the store, and if he won't go, you can't go, or they will come after you with sticks and bats and beat you in public.
Even if a small percentage of these women for some inexplicable reason like to be able to only see out of a small grid of cloth in front of their eyes, and never feel the sun on their face, and like being turned into an invisible non-person, because of the power of their husbands and their mosque, they had no choice. Regardless of the country they live in.
I beg to differ, there have been 4 caught within the last week.
