    New Dutch Government Makes Pact to Ban Burqa, Cut Deficit | Europe | English

    They've got some problems over there. A cautionary tale for the U.S.

    You haven't been paying attention. According to all the politically correct on this board nothing could ever happen here cause the Muslims in our Country are the "good" kind.

    Thank god that kind of morons is not forming a government here.

    Banning the Burkha is rather stupid, as only some hundred do it in Europe (let it be some thousand, doesn´t matter)

    Sounds like clubbing a scapegoat.

    Yes, migration and immigration is a problem, but this it not the way to solve it.

    Muslims are not a single etnic group. There are arabs, turks, malayans etc. But we only see angry men with beards and woman in hijabs. To me it´s like the myth about tall blonde Swedes and Germans who are all Nazis. Yes there are, but there are others as well.

    The Burkha is definitely not a problem, it is a symptom (if at all).

    regards

    I just read about the Italy case and the woman was fined for refusing to show her face when the police were checking her ID That seems reasonable.

    People in the US are not permitted to wear ski masks or even hoodies and sunglasses in some banks. Certainly a burka should be treated the same way IMHO.
