Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa, Allow the Burkini

Submitted by stevenl (United States), Aug 23, 2016 at 01:10

The issue is not the burka or the burkini but for the Islamists to spite in the face of the secular countries by keeping women in submission. A friend of mine informed me that Saudi Arabia and other fanatical Islamic countries pay many of these women to wear veils, burkas and now burkinis!!!
