LCG: France Burqa Ban Just Received Cabinet Approval

Two Women Wearing Burqas


LCG reported:

French Move May Cross the EU.The French cabinet approved a draft law to ban the Muslim full-face veil from public spaces on Wednesday, opening the way for the text to go before parliament in July. ‘In this matter the government is taking a path it knows to be difficult, but a path it knows to be just,’ President Nicolas Sarkozy told the assembled ministers…” The law is expected to be passed by Parliament, but experts warn that courts may not uphold the law and that it will be difficult to enforce. Many fear repercussions from the EU when the law passes. However, President Sarkozy’s reason for the law is that “We are an old nation united around a certain idea of human dignity, and in particular of a woman’s dignity, around a certain idea of how to live together.” Muslims comprise approximately 7.5% of the French population (AFP, May 19, 2010). Despite European efforts to unite under a common union, differences in temperament, perspective, deep-running nationalism and an obvious language barrier continue to prevent a “perfect union” in Europe. Relatively small actions by individual nations can foment division among even the EU’s strongest and most influential states. God knew full-well what He was talking about when He predicted the individualistic “iron and clay” natures of the kingdoms that will compose the final Beast power (Daniel 2:37-45).

The French move was expected.  Belgium already banned the burqa (see Burqa Banning in Belgium, Italy, France, and Australia).

Europe is starting to get fed-up with Islam (see also Anti-Islamic PVV Gaining in the Netherlands and Switzerland Votes to Ban Minarets).

A divide between Islam and the nominally-Christian Europe is going to become more and more real.  This move in France is simply another demonstration of that.
