Hopefully the recommendation of a partial ban on women wearing Islamic face veils in public by a French parliamentary committee is a precursor to a full public ban in the foreseeable future. It is a very welcome first step. The veils have no place in an open, secular, egalitarian society and are a rejection of French values and culture. They are symptomatic of creeping Islamization in France and the rest of Europe, a phenomenon which has already been disastrous in many respects and which can only lead to European countries becoming more and more Islamic and eventually losing their national characteristics and identities.
Whether wearing the veil is done ostensibly by choice or whether it is a religious or cultural requirement is completely irrelevant. Covering one’s face in public is simply not compatible with western mores and the French can only be congratulated for taking this action to defend their way of life and the principles it rests upon. With any luck a full public ban won’t be far behind and other countries in Europe will follow suit as well. Islamization is not a good thing and this move by the French will definitely help to stem the tide.
Put it together with the Swiss ban on construction of new minarets and a possible acquittal in the Geert Wilders trial in the Netherlands and perhaps there’s reason for optimism after all. Who knows, maybe even the British will come to their senses.
