These days there are great issues confronting people in western nations. Some are concerned about loss of factory jobs, some are concerned about climate change, some are concerned about human rights, some are concerned about the growing gap between the very wealthy vs the middle and working class. But, for many THE GREAT ISSUE OF MODERN LIFE IS–SHOULD WOMEN BE ALLOWED TO COVER THEIR FACES WITH A VEIL!
Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany has been blasted for allowing Muslim immigrants to enter Germany. She decided to demonstrate in some manner that she could be tough on Muslims. She told the German people: “the full veil is not appropriate here, it must be forbidden wherever that is legally possible. It does not belong to us(Germans). Interior Minister Thomas de Maizee: “It does not fit into our society, we demand you show the face.”
I guess this issue is very important. France had many more Muslims than Germany. A recent study indicated that 2,500 Muslim women in France wore the full face veil. No further comment.
