    Is China ahead of the curve here? Breaking new ground? Or setting themselves up for more hatred and attacks?

    Would you support burqa bans in your country?
    How many terrorist attacks by Muslims have occurred in China?

    From the linked CNN article:

    A spate of recent violent incidents has rocked Xinjiang, a resource-rich region long inhabited by the Turkic-speaking, largely Muslim Uyghurs.

    We trying to establish the specifics, and that's a good question. I think some of the terrorists like to wear their wive's burqas.

    I can't wear a floppy hat or sunglasses in a bank. But I can where a burqa at the airport . . . you know, the ones with the secret inside pockets that hide AK47's.

    Ban burqas. Ban all religious habits. Not going to happen in the USA.

What if they could've donned hoodies and melted into a crowd? I guess you could come up with hundred of scenarios and what they could have done to melt into a crowd. It doesn't matter if it's a good thing or not, people should have the right to wear what they want to, without being indecent in public.

    Now as far as driving while wearing a burqa:
