Hello again folks! The PC crowd must be having sleepless nights in an ocean of angst. First we had brave Switzerland considering the banning of building of minarets on its mosques. On top of that the Netherlands and Belgium proposed and voted on an islamic burkha ban and now France' lower house has indeed endorsed said prohibition. I have to applaud [for once!] our EU neighbours on this.
But there does seem to be a rift developing here. Over on BBC News this morning; we had a moslem lady vehemently stating that a UK burkha ban is quote: "... unbritish ..."; while on the other hand - a little later on the same programme - we had the imam from an Oxford mosque agreeing with a proposed ban stating [as many have] that the burkha is not at all islamic at all but a 'cultural' choice unnecessary for muslims in modern day Britain.
Hence; if the PC brigade don't get their own way; we can rely on the cultural police to foul things up! In my personal opinion; knowing that women in islam [and especially their testimony] are valued at just 50% as that of men; I think it awful that a woman should be obliged to or culturally persuaded to wear such a garment in the 21st century. It is a 7th century Arab custom which is 1,400 years out of date. Dare I say it: Is this not a living dinosaur in and of itself?
Real Bereans [Acts 17:11] are truly needed; watchmen must warn; evangelists must compel; DO NOT BE DECEIVED and watch that periphery!
God bless you and God bless Israel ... KJS ... 18-July-2010
