And when someone wears clothing which is intended to disguise their identity - regardless of the reason - it runs counter to the very principle that we can be open because we can be help accountable as we are identified if we do something improper or even illegal.
    Interesting. Not sure I'd say it's enough to justify a burka ban or whatever (I see very real merits on both sides of the argument), but what you say here cannot be denied for it's accuracy.

    It was more universal than that. It banned face covering while in public.

    I mean, it's not sad, because I don't feel bad for them, it's just sad that we'd have to go against the constitution so blatantly. However, that would never happen under Obama. Obama refuses to call terrorism, terrorism.

    Thank you. And I suspect the way to approach this entire issue is NOT through the prism of Islam or radical Islam or their dress habits - but through the argument I presented. Its a winning position that goes far beyond the mere flavor of the day.

    Good for China. Obama can't even acknowledge that Islamic extremism is the problem. It looks like the Chinese not only are prepared to acknowledge the threat but want to look it straight in the face.

    Yes, your right. I was thinking of the hijab.

    You should stop and think before posting absolute claims like that.

    Well said. I agree. The muslims have passed the point of "There are some good muslims too!". We don't know who they are because the bad ones hide among them like cowards. Unfortunately for them, the world is getting wise. Profiling will happen.
