Not in My Backyard

Staying in France today we hear from that country’s president on the subject of the veil.

Nicolas Sarkozy last night threw his weight behind moves to ban the full Islamic veil in France, calling for an “unambiguous” parliamentary resolution against an item of clothing he said was “not welcome” in a country which valued sexual equality.”

Apparently only about 2,000 women in the whole country wear the full veil so does the president protest too much? We think so. While we are in full support of women’s rights and equality aren’t there better ways to promote the issue, especially among the group that is being targeted? Sadly we think this is just another excuse to appease those on the right wing who favor a France that is less diverse…
