Reader comment on item: Philadelphia's Burqa Crisis
in response to reader comment: Where is that formula, once again?

Submitted by Peter Hall (Australia), Apr 19, 2013 at 03:49

Dear poor ... Armin,

it is a shame you cannot procees the information presented. Where have I said I wanted to banned the burka?????? Where? Your limited imagination has run away with you again.

Its a shame you do not bother to read your own sources

"Try and concentrate, I said the "Nazi Swastika" not the hindu symbol. They are demonstrably different. "

Not really - the modern depiction is often very same. It is a simple graphic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

If you read the link YOU provided it clearly confirmed my arguement and even states how German tried to have the Nazi Swastika banned in Europe. No where do I mention any other swastika except the NAZI SWASTIKA. Try and concentrate you are embarassing yoruself.

As to the Burka, what I have been plainly stating is that the burka "May need to have laws" imposed on where and when it can be worn. I never mentioned it being banned.

Like cars and guns and knives, burkas are used in crimes, added to this, it is viewed as offensive to many non-muslim people. Therefore, it needs rules applied to its use. If I owned a jewllery store, i would prohibit anybody from wearing a burka, motorcyle helment or full face covering from entering my store. If I was setting rules for driving vehicles I would ban drivers from wearing then when driving. I would ban them from Banks and Airports.

I do personnally think they are ugly and offensive. However if a Muslim woman wants to wear it at home or in areas that present no risk to others fine, I have no problem with burkas the same as I have no problem with nudists if they are not offending other people.

Muslims may be totally insenstive as to how their actions and traditions are offensive to non Muslims. Luckily for Muslims the average Westerner does not riot in the streets or resort to violence. We prefer to discuss and debate.

You seem desperate to shut down any criticism of Muslims or Islam at any opportunity.

Why do you live in a Western country when you are so clearly contemptueous of Western Values? Is it that you really are hear to live off welfare like Dhimmi claims?

Submitting....
