Hey Big Spender: Pay My Burqa Fine For Me…!

Once again we see that the Muslim ummah stands united in defiance of infidel laws. Rachid Nekkaz is waging jihad with his money to make Islam dominate over French laws and the will of the French people.

I say multiply the fines by a hundred!

Fined for your burka? ‘I’ll pay’, says tycoon as French MPs prepare to vote on veil ban

Daily Mail/thanks to Weasel Zippers

France could ban burkhas by the end of September after a series of parliamentary votes was scheduled to begin.

Deputies, or members of the lower house, are tomorrow likely to approve the measure outlawing face-covering veils despite outrage among the country’s 5million Muslims.

Now a French tycoon is setting up a fund to help Muslim women pay ‘burka fines’ for hiding their faces in public.

Muslim businessman Rachid Nekkaz has today pledged to sell off 1million euros (£840,000) worth of property in Paris for the fund.

In an open letter published in national newspapers, he said a burka ban was unconstitutional and any woman fined for hiding her face could come to him for help.

The ban could be ratified in September when Senators are almost certain to approve the ban which has received overwhelming support from voters.

There was little resistance among lawmakers today as they debated the bill that proposes to fine wearers £140 and imprison men who force their wives to put on the outfit.

But the ban could be shot down by France’s constitutional watchdog or the European Court of Human Rights.

That could dampen efforts under way in other European countries toward banning the veils.

It would also be a humiliation for President Nicolas Sarkozy’s conservative government, which has devoted much attention to a bill that would affect only an estimated 1,900 women in France.

The main body representing French Muslims says face-covering veils are not required by Islam and not suitable in France, but it worries that the law will stigmatize Muslims in general.

The niqab and burkha are widely seen in France as a gateway to extremism and an attack on women’s rights and secularism, a central value of modern-day France. Critics say a ban is a cynical ploy to attract far-right voters.

The government has struggled – and failed, some legal observers say – to come up with a strong legal basis for a ban.

In March, France’s highest administrative body, the Council of State, warned that it could be found unconstitutional. It rejected possible legal justifications one by one, including the French tradition of secularism, equality for women, human dignity and concerns about public security.

In the end, the government’s central legal argument is that covering one’s face doesn’t square with French values.

Life in France is ‘carried out with a bare face,’ Justice Minister Michele Alliot-Marie said last week, opening debate at the National Assembly.

As legal reasoning, she invoked the notion of public policy doctrine, a country’s moral and social rules.

Face-covering veils ‘call into question the idea of integration, which is founded on the acceptance of the values of our society,’ Alliot-Marie said.

The legislation would forbid face-covering Muslim veils in all public places in France, even in the street.

It calls for £140 fines or citizenship classes, or both.

The bill is also aimed at husbands and fathers who impose such veils on women and girls.

Anyone convicted of forcing someone else to wear the garb risks a year of prison and a £25,000 fine – with both those penalties doubled if the victim is a minor.

Officials have taken pains to craft language that does not single out Muslims. While the proposed legislation is colloquially referred to as the ‘anti-burkha law,’ it is officially called ‘the bill to forbid concealing one’s face in public.’

It refers neither to Islam nor to veils – leading to an often surreal disconnect between the text and discussion in parliament about it. While officials insist the law against face-covering would apply to everyone, not just Muslims, they cite a host of exceptions, including masks for health reasons, for fencing, for carnivals and festivals.

Legislator Berengere Poletti, of Sarkozy’s conservative party, argued that women in such garb ‘wear a sign of alienation on their faces’ and ‘must be liberated,’ even if they say the apparel is their own choice.

Communist Andre Gerin, who also supports a ban, said that ‘talking about liberty to defend the wearing of the full veil is totally cynical – for me, the full veil is a walking coffin, a muzzle.’

Socialist Jean Glavany, one of the few lawmakers to offer stinging criticism of a ban, said dwelling on questions of French identity and whether burkhas are welcome in France ‘is nothing more than the fear of those who are different, who come from abroad, who aren’t like us, who don’t share our values.’

He was also one of several lawmakers to question the bill’s ‘judicial fragility.’

To address that widespread concern, the conservative majority has taken the unusual step of asking the Constitutional Council watchdog to examine the bill once it passes parliament – a move usually made by opponents of legislation.

Down the road, the law could face another challenge at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, where decisions are binding.

In February, the court shot down a Turkish decision that convicted dozens of people for wearing religious clothing in public

  1. When are the courts going to start prosecuting for ‘inciting to crime’, inciting to murder’, ‘inciting to riot’ etc.

    Start with Rachid Nekkaz:
    inciting to commit a crime;
    offering money to commit a crime;
    and fine him or put him into prison for ‘undermining French Justice’

  2. There is no place in a democratic society for the “slave sacks” or to allow a slim minority to disguise their identities in public, period.

  3. Lower House has approved ban on bondage bags – carbecue time tonight?


    French parliament approves ban on face veils

    By ANGELA DOLAND (AP) – 25 minutes ago

    PARIS — France’s lower house of parliament overwhelmingly approved a ban on wearing burqa-style Islamic veils Tuesday, part of a concerted effort to define and protect French values that has disconcerted many in the country’s large Muslim community.

  4. such losers,lol, you’re not thinking oh hang on a minute today they’re banning people from wearing what they want…you’re to busy focusing on people you hate and tommorow when its our turn(ban the huds/caps or mini skirts lol) we’ll not be in a position to defend!! why because weve already set off on a slope saying the goverment can dictate to us what to wear!! and then what to eat and when to take a shit!! stop being stupid and realise that if they want to wear something its there choice! fair enough you say oh i dont like it, but just because you dont like it doesnt mean you dont let people who DO like it wear it…..thing about when we say the catwalk shit dont we say what the fuck i would never wear that…yet there are people who would!!

  5. * why because weve already set off on a slope saying the goverment can dictate to us … what to eat and when to take a shit!!

    Already done, with [some] schools serving halal-only meals, and halal certification becoming big business, overseen by government.

    If muslims can “persistently badger” to get what they want, why can’t dhimmies? Why should everyone eat stuff sacrificed to false gods, such as allah?


    Now students tuck into halal meat pies

    [EVERY kid knows how to get what they want – and in Sydney’s west it was only persistent badgering that brought halal food to the school tuckshop.

    The technique worked at Lurnea Public School, which has become the latest of an estimated 40 schools from kindergarten to university to bring in halal food.

    Muslim students, who make up more than 30 per cent of the school’s population, can now eat meat pies, lasagne and spaghetti bolognaise at the school.

    “We found that we were not catering to this community and they were coming to the canteen and asking for halal food,” relieving principal Sandra Forman said.

    “The other students have found this food just as good.” A Department of Education spokeswoman said individual school communities were responsible for the food in canteens.]

    Apparently 30% muslim is enough to go halal – the vocal minority imposes its will on the majority.

  6. The minute you blew up the joint
    I could see you were a muzz on a mission
    A true believer
    Bad looking, unrefined.
