France to ban veil says Nicolas Sarkozy

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...s-Sarkozy.html

The move would protect the dignity of women, the president added.

“The full veil is contrary to the dignity of women,” he said. “The response is to ban it. The Government will table a draft law prohibiting it.”


The president gave no further details during his address to the nation following a heavy defeat in regional elections for his ruling Union for a Popular Movement party.

Speaking from the Elysee Palace Mr Sarkozy gave no indication as to how an outright ban would be imposed and policed.

France is home to six million Muslims.

How about they ban the problem and not one of the symptoms?

You're right, I shouldn't have said ban, I should have focused more on elimination.

They view it as a race, we should too.

Oh wait.... give it time, bro. It's marinating.
It's their own fault. They spent over a century trying to marry Algeria into their culture.

Well, you can rest assure, there WILL be violence and/or rioting. I LOVE what Sarkozy has been doing in France. He's the exact opposite of Chirac (thank God).
