Do you find this swimsuit “offensive”?
Do you think this woman is “evil” by covering up her flesh?
Is this a plot by Islam to destroy the noble Western values
of topless titillation and female sexual exhibitionism?
MAHMOUD EL-YOUSSEPH (pictured) : France owes Muslim women an apology. At a time when Scotland approved “hijab” as an official part of police uniform to encourage Muslim women to join the forces, fascist France banned Muslim women from wearing the burkini—a swimsuit which covers the body and head—at several beaches across France.
Several women were issued a $43 fine for violating the ban. One woman was forced to undress and remove her long sleeve clothing at gun point in front of her children. That triggered an international outrage against France. The reason given for the burkini ban? It was considered to represent “oppression and terrorism”. This is ridiculous, to say the least. The burkini has nothing to do with oppression or terrorism or even safety. It is not all that different from an ordinary wetsuit. It is a bathing costume, for Gods sake! It offers a choice of style. Indeed, it is an example of diversity.
In Victorian times, Western women dressed like this. They covered up because they felt more at ease. They didn’t want to expose their bodies to the hot eyes of male lust. Is there anything wrong with that?

Are these modest ladies plotting “terrorism” by dressing like this?
All that Muslim women want is to go swimming and have fun on the beach like everybody else. Isn’t that what assimilation is all about? If a French woman is free to show her body, why can’t a Muslim woman have the right to cover it?
France has a long and shameful history of abusing and betraying its own citizens. In the past, the French Vichy regime wilfully collaborated with Nazi Germany by targeting Jews and other “undesirables” by having raids, conducted by the French police, to capture them. Those raids were conducted in both the northern zone occupied by Germany, and the southern “free zone” which was occupied by the Allies.
French abuse towards women is not limited only to French soil. A petition was launched on line recently by filmmaker Samantha Asumadu, addressed to the UN, calling for the withdrawal of French troops from the Central African Republic, following numerous allegations that soldiers working as UN peacekeepers were engaged in raping women and children as young as 13 years old. The petitions says: “We demand accountability. And we demand it now!” An independent report by the AIDS-Free World’s Code Blue campaign stated that UN and French troops based in the Central African Republic had abused at least 98 girls.
Now the high court in France struck down the burkini ban. The court advised women who were fined by the police t go to the police station and get a refund! Rather than giving the victims a refund, France should apologize to Muslim women. They should have learned from England and Scotland how to respect and promote freedom.

Are women like this a threat to public order? Are they plotting the downfall of the state? Is this a plot to destroy Christianity and impose Islam and sharia law on the West?
No, it is not! And the Brits, unlike the stupid French authorities, are intelligent enough to realize that!
SHAME ON FRANCE!
JANET MILES (Letter in the Daily Mail) : The treatment of Muslim women (dressed in burkinis) on a French beach was an outrage and will do nothing to quell Islamist extremism. Quite the opposite—it will give extremists more ammunition to attack the West.
As a plump, 61-year-old Englishwoman with a fair skin, my usual beachwear is long baggy trousers and a kaftan-style top, and a sun hat or headscarf in hot weather. This would be almost identical to the outfit of these poor Muslim women in their burkinis.
Will I be arrested if I go to France? Will I be forced by the French police to reveal parts of my body I would prefer to be covered?
This won’t happen to me in France. Why? Because I am white British. These Muslim ladies are picked on precisely because their skins are not white—because they are foreigners—and that, as far as I’m concerned, is RACIST!
LD (summarizing) : I agree. The French are pushing their luck. They should back off and stop behaving like cheap bullies. Have they learned nothing from their cruel war crimes in Algeria?
Time to get your act together, France! You will only provoke a backlash from the extremists if you push their women around like this.
Just because you can’t deal with the Muslim extremists in your midst, having let them into your multicultural madhouse in such indigestible quantities—thanks to the Jews from whom you take your orders!—you don’t have to vent your anger and spleen on a bunch of innocent Muslim women whose only offence is that they prefer to dress modestly.
Dressing modestly is not a terrorist crime!
FRANKLIN RYCKAERT : I am against mass immigration of Muslims into Western countries. Islam demands a totalitarian way of life which is incompatible with Western values. As soon as the number of Muslims in a country reaches a critical mass, they demand sharia (this is already happening in several places of Europe). So no more Muslim immigration and repatriation of most of them already in our countries.
Having said that, I have no objections if the small number of Muslims still in our countries follow their traditions that are not really a threat to our civilization.
Muslim women wearing a hijab at work or a burkini on the beach are as little a threat to our civilization as Sikhs wearing a turban. Actually it is ridiculous to punish Muslim women for their version of modesty. Burkinis are not the problem, mass immigration is.
