Musulmans d'Europe: Allez Vous Faire Foutre!
French Senate passes ban on full Muslim veils
I think it is a man driving! Look at his hands.
PARIS – The French Senate on Tuesday overwhelmingly passed a bill banning the burqa-style Islamic veil in public. The Senate voted 246 to 1 Tuesday in favor of the bill, which has already passed in the lower chamber, the National Assembly. It will need President Nicolas Sarkozy's signature.
Legislative leaders said they wanted the Constitutional Council to examine it. "This law was the object of long and complex debates," Senate President Gerard Larcher and National Assembly head Bernard Accoyer said in a joint statement explaining their move. They said in a joint statement that they want to be certain there is "no uncertainty" about it conforming to the constitution. The measure affects less than 2,000 women, but is a symbol of a defiant Islam that wants to change the face of secular France into the primitive religious cesspool typically seen in backwards religious countries where women are treated like cattle.
The vast majority of the French stands behind the measure. They say it will preserve the nation's singular values, including its secular foundation and a notion of fraternity that is contrary to those hypocrites who hide their faces and their religious fanaticism behind a piece of cloth.
France would be the first European country to pass such a law though others, notably neighboring Belgium, are considering laws against face-covering veils, seen as anathema to the local culture. "Our duty concerning such fundamental principles of our society is to speak with one voice," said Justice Minister Michele Alliot-Marie, opening a less than 5-hour-long debate ahead of the vote.
The measure was passed overwhelmingly by the lower house of parliament, the National Assembly, on July 13.
