in response to reader comment: Missing the point

quoting anonymous:: "to ban burkahs (...)should not be done in a way that causes suffering for (...) any other peaceful religion."

Hello anonymous, you implicitly almost come to an important point. Banning burkas and the like should certainly be regarded as part of a war on a radical islam. Please allow me to interpret "any other peaceful religion" as a counterpoint to radical islam. I cannot understand how the political establishment tries to integrate this into the overall set of civil laws. This sort of legislation is part of legal warfare on the western part and should be regarded as such. There shall be no equal treatment of radical islam vs other religions. No equal treament of enemy vs friend.
