one belief over all others

Reader comment on item: Islamist Apparel Banned in France

Submitted by Jules Posten (United States), Apr 15, 2011 at 18:55

it's one thing to impose these restrictions on females who suscribe to Islam. it's quite another to insist female visitors to an Islamic country must also submit to these "rules" and wear articles of clothing which in any way is meant to show how univeral these "rules"should apply to all women. witness, Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea, Nancy Pelosi, and others like Angela Merkle, a German head of state, and many others of lesser note, all showing the 'proper respect" for a culture completely alien to them. just why do these women feel it neccessary to bow down before beliefs that not not theirs, when these "True Believers" would never show the same courtesy and good will towards any culture and belief that is not theirs? tolerence has never been shown in the pages of the Koran, and in the hearts and minds of the Believers of the words of that book.
