Not multicultural?

Reader comment on item: Weak Brits, Tough French

Submitted by Pluto's Dad (United States), Jul 13, 2005 at 11:30

Some of what is cited, like not allowing kids to wear Hijabs, is not anti-terror as much as it is an example of the French being arrogant and looking down on everyone else; and also haveing no respect for freedom and liberty. Chirac would never have been elected if French newspapers were allowed to print the corruption details about his reign in Paris that papers in other countries printed.

Yeah, they cherish their culture, to the point of making it illegal for people to use non-French words. How ridiculous for someone to try to control a language. Ever try to do tech or IT in France? They alone use different words for everything than the rest of the world. That is not protecting themselves against terror -- that is arrogance.

Though at least the article finally says what the US Right has been saying all along, prisoners have more rights in the US and in England than anywhere else in the world; notwithstanding the protests of the IRC and Amnesty Intl.
