* Says veil ban needed to uphold basic rules of society

PARIS, June 28 (Reuters) – Prime Minister Francois Fillon urged France’s Muslims on Monday to reject full face veils as a sectarian caricature of Islam, a week before parliament debates a law banning burqas and niqabs in public.

Inaugurating a mosque in a northwestern Paris suburb, he said French Muslims should combat a tiny radical minority using face veils as a way to combat the integration of a tolerant Islam that respects the separation of church and state.

“The Islam of France, the Islam you practice daily, has nothing to do with this caricature that dims the lights of your faith,” Fillon, the most senior French politician to inaugurate a mosque in decades, said to applause from the crowd.

Muslims love clueless dhimmies……

“You should stand in the front line against this hijacking of the religious message … it’s up to you to make intelligence triumph over obscurantism and tolerance over intolerance.”

France’s five-million strong Muslim community, the largest in Europe, has felt increasingly sidelined in the past year as President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government led a public debate over national identity and decided to ban full face veils.

Many French Muslims already consider themselves fully integrated citizens and only a tiny minority wear the all-covering burqas or niqabs that recently have become a butt of hostility in several European countries.

As Fillon spoke, a woman in the western city of Nantes was on trial for driving while wearing a niqab. Police had fined her for wearing a garment that blocked her lateral vision, and the case went to court when she and her husband challenged it.


Fillon defended the plan to ban full veils, saying the government had to defend some groundrules of society.

“This minority practice, which flouts the basic rules of living together and scandalises our citizens, amounts to radical behaviour that does not reflect the reality of Islam,” he said.

The prime minister made clear he recognised Muslims’ concern about a growing trend of anti-Muslim feeling they saw in France, noting that six mosques had been defaced or attacked last year and several Muslim graves vandalised early this year.

“Thirty percent of all acts of racist violence (last year), mostly threats, were made against Muslims,” he said.

Mohammed Moussaoui, president of the French Muslim Council (CFCM), said Fillon was welcome after the tensions raised by the national identity and veil debates. “His presence is a gesture of recognition and respect,” he told the daily La Croix.

Philippe Doucet, Socialist mayor of suburban town of Argenteuil, where the mosque stands, said the conservative prime minister was making up for the “political mistake” of launching what became emotional debates about identity and veils.

In the trial of the veiled driver, the defendant’s lawyer accused the police of racial profiling and said no law barred drivers from wearing niqabs with only a slit open for the eyes.

“The niqab is no worse than the helmet worn by Formula 1 drivers who spin around the circuits at 320 km/h and yet who can still look in their rearview mirrors,” he said.

    Sorry but hate speech – or “wotcha do’in in a sack” is NOT “racist violence”, it is not even racist! Even shouting “terrorist” at a fully garbed imam is only an opinion. Shouting back is the answer, not running to the government crying that you are disliked only because you support a terrorist ideology.

    Violence is what is being done to non-muslims in muslim countries.
    Gloves off PC-lovers, or you may end up with a civil war.

  2. * no law barred drivers from wearing niqabs with only a slit open for the eyes.

    In Swordi land, females are barred from driving, with or without bondage bags. No stuffing around when sharia is in force.

  3. let me tell you ,
    you are mixing up ancestral coutume with religion, i am a converted moslem and i know what i am talking about , not you , why? because you are blinded with hatred of Islam and obsessed with Islam.
    Let me tell that, Islam does not stop woman from driving, Islam does not force woman to wear niqab, Islam does not stop woman to have top jobs! in one word, Islam says: woman and men are equal, they just have a different role.
    So you see you talk endlessly about a religion that you have a poor knowledge of ! THERE IS A SAYING’ LITTLE KNOWLEDGE IS DANGEROUS’ that is exactly what is happening to you!!
    why don’t you talk about hindou ism for a achange???

  4. * let me tell you

    Four fifths of five eighths of what Paddy shot at.

    Spin it, Sylvie!

  5. SAUDI WOMEN: “Let us drive or we’ll let male drivers suck our breasts”

    The campaign will be launched under the slogan: “We either be allowed to drive or breastfeed foreigners,” a journalist told Gulf News. Amal Zahid said that their decision follows a fatwa issued by a renowned scholar which said that Saudi women can breastfeed their foreign drivers for them to become their sons. muslim-breast-feeding-frenzy

    Muhammads obsession with menstrual periods

    “Islam does not force woman to wear niqab,”

    Allah (SWT) makes the compliance of wearing the hijab a condition of chastity and modesty. He (SWT) says,

    “O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils) over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft-Forgivig, Most Merciful.” (Al-Ahzab 33:59)


    Qur’an (2:223) – “Your wives are as a tilth unto you; so approach your tilth when or how ye will…” A man has dominion over his wives’ bodies as he does his land. This verse is overtly sexual. There is some dispute as to whether it is referring to the practice of anal intercourse, which it has been used historically to justify. If this is what Muhammad meant, however, then it would appear to contradict what he said in Muslim (8:3365).

    Qur’an (4:3) – (Wife-to-husband ratio) “Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four”

  8. for you ,dear man making sense is: insulting Islam and his beloved prophete (pbuh) 24hours a day !!!

  9. Mohammad never had high regard of women’s intelligence. Women are dumb and stupid, a disrespectful attitude perceived by many followers of Mohammad until today. Women fast, pray and recite the Quran with chilling dedication. No matter how hard they try, their destiny is nowhere but the hell, a huge furnace made of dragon’s flame. They will be grilled infinitely without mercy, a confirmation that was certified by Mohammad. What high regard for women in islam???
