    Netherlands bans burqas


    File picture - Women in niqabs walk, in front of the Danish Parliament at Christiansborg Castle, in Copenhagen, Denmark, Thursday May 31. 2018 MADS CLAUS RASMUSSEN/RITZAU SCANPIX VIA AP

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands – The Netherlands has approved a limited ban on “face-covering clothing” in public places, including Islamic veils and robes such as the burqa and niqab but not the hijab, which covers only the hair. Firebrand far-right politician Geert Wilders had pushed for the ban for over a decade.

    Parliament’s upper chamber made the final approval in a vote Tuesday.

    The Dutch law is described by the government as “religion-neutral,” and does not go as far as more extensive bans in neighboring countries like France and Belgium. It applies on public transport and in education institutions, health institutions such as hospitals, and government buildings.

    Studies suggest that only a few hundred women in the Netherlands wear niqabs or full-face burqas.

    The ban also covers ski masks and full-face helmets.

    Honestly... I agree with them. These niqabs creep me out, they simply do.

    I myself, I am from Caucasus. Abkhazia, my homeland, has plenty of Muslims, 15% or so of the ethnic Abkhaz population

    They all used to be, before the Russians and Georgians converted most of them to Orthodox Christianity over the centuries.

    I never seen a Muslim woman in Abkhazia wear that black shit.

    Nor in Moscow, where I lived in a Southern neighborhood, where lots of other folks from Caucasus and Central Asia tend to also make home, and girls in hijabs are not unusual

    But again, no burqas.

    As I said here, these burqas are associated with terrorists in Russia, because that's only ones who ever wore them there, wahhabi extremists


    I can understand why many in Europe see it that way too.

    It is NOT a normal type of clothing...

    Who will be the first to scream islamophobe?

    Can you imagine if America did this?

    Well .... Left me rephrase that.

    Can you imagine if this ban was signed into law by President Trump?

    "Man buns" creep me out. They're NOT a normal type of hairstyle.

    Can we pass laws to ban them too?

    I'd support you on that one probably too lol

    On a serious note, it's not the same thing. I don't recall any people with man buns supporting terrorism and such anywhere.

    Meanwhile, burqas are the uniform of ISIS women, for example

    On the other hand, women are very rarely involved in supporting terrorism. It's almost always men. So if we're giving those who sport man buns a pass since they're unlikely to be involved in terrorist-related activities, shouldn't we also give women a pass for the same reason?

    My post stands. I said "... women are very rarely involved in supporting terrorism." And I meant it. Run the numbers along gender lines.
