FRANCE IS RIGHT.\\\\\\\\\ If the Muslims are appeased even on such a medieval custom like BURQA, Europe, too, will resemble AFGHANISTAN eventually. Then we will see the women flogged and shot in the open and there will be MANY who will support such punishments for speaking to a stranger, showing ankles or face in public and driving the car alone without a male guardian or objecting to being ONE OF THE FOUR wives of a good Muslim. \\\\\\\ XXXXXXXXXX 12.4.11 ========= In a message dated 11/04/2011 14:41:10 GMT Standard Time, owner-worldhaveyoursay-html@lists.bbc.co.uk writes:\\\\\\\\\ ON AIR: IS FRANCE SETTING AN EXAMPLE FOR THE WORLD? France is at the centre of three top stories today - and its role in all three areas is controversial. \\\\\\\\\\ Facebook and twitter (hastags #voile and #niqab) are humming with debate about the French ban, imposed today, on women covering their face in public with the niqab or burqa. \\\\\\\\\\\ The first arrests have already taken place after a small group of women - who were wearing veils - staged a protest in Paris.\\\\\\\\\\ Some of those who support the ban argue that France's secular identity must be preserved. Others, who see the niqab and burqa as symbols of female oppression, say the law is a way of supporting women's freedom. But Nesrine Malik writes in The Daily Telegraph today and describes the law as "a mix of Islamophobia, busy-bodying feminism and resurgent nationalist sentiment". \\\\\\\\\\\ Who's right? Is France setting an example? Would you like your own country to follow suit? Or is it getting it wrong? 000000000
