French leader believes full veil ‘hurts the dignity of women,’

PARIS - French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Wednesday ordered legislation that would ban women from wearing Islamic veils that hide the face in the street and other public places.....

Another step in the right direction ;)

Is that Islamic for Halle-F***en-Lujah? :)

It would be intersting to see if this will reduce the number of ninjas on the street, or if it will actually result in more unveiled Muslim woman. If I were only allowed in the street in a full veil I would prefer that to being not allowed to go into the public anymore. I suspect most of these women don't have a big choice, and this bill will reduce their choice to zero.

This reminds me of the recent bare breats march. My favourite part is: "But, she said, the picture-taking was particularly upsetting." I mean really, me being a cave man, the more you show the more I'm going to look.

I agree that this is a positive move for equal rights for women, however I feel that this could be insulting towards the general Muslim faith.

Radical Muslims will see this as a direct assault on the belief and ideals of the Muslim faith, by the "evil" western countries. Their religious indoctrination will not allow for them to see it as an issue of equal rights for women, but as a persuction of their religion.

At a time when tensions between Muslim countries and Western countries is quite high, I feel that this decision could have far ranging repurcussion in terms of safety and security in these countries.
