“Burqinis” notwithstanding, France isn’t being Islamized.
This summer, a woman of Arab descent tried to enter a Paris swimming pool wearing a head-to-toe black swimsuit dubbed a “burqini” and was expelled. The episode rekindled the “veil controversy” of 2005, when the French Parliament, at President Jacques Chirac’s urging, unanimously passed a law forbidding students to wear any “intrusive religious signs” in schools. The Jewish yarmulke and the Christian cross were tolerated, if kept small and discreet, but not the Islamic veil—which was the law’s real focus. The veil law, a not-so-subtle attempt to prevent the Islamization of France, implied that French society had become besieged by its 4 or 5 million Muslims, and observers might draw the same conclusion from the burqini incident.
The rest of this article provides a contrasting picture to that one is often confronted with. II for one do not believe either side of the argument as being fully true. There is clearly a number of issues facing France that is directly tied to it’s Muslim populace. It is equally true though, and often overlooked ,that not every thing a Muslim person does in France is in the name of Islamic Jihad.
I offer it up for you the viewer.No matter what I can recommend this article as excellent and a near must read for those that have a stake in the issues at hand
