The economic systems of many European nations have collapsed. France is suffering from a sputtering economy and there is widespread anger at its government. So, what is the solution to these problems, not only in France, but throughout the European Union– BAN THE VEIL! A French Muslim woman, known only as SAS, petitioned the European Court of Human Rights for the right to wear her veil. The nation of France made illegal the wearing of a veil in public due to reasons of national “safety.” The Court agreed with the view that if a woman wears a veil then safety of others is somehow under threat. Of course, people can own guns, but those weapons are required for “safety” of individuals. Heck, in America, a woman wearing a niqab receives ugly looks, but if a man with guns appears, people now feel safe.
The lawyer of SAS made clear, “her faith is an essential element of her existence, she is a devout believer and the wearing of the veil is fundamental to her life.” For SAS the wearing of a veil is HER decision. I was raised in an Orthodox Jewish family and when we went to shul, women sat behind a curtain, separated from men. Somehow, we managed to live and no one felt frightened.
Some day it will be explained to me why wearing a veil is a greater threat to life than wearing guns!
