Reader comment on item: Can Islam Be Reformed?
in response to reader comment: Don't hesitate to say " merci la France "

Daniel Pipes: "France has not banned hijabs, chadors, jilbabs, abayas, or the many other coverings."

It does, see the "Law of 2010-1192: Act prohibiting concealment of the face in public space"

It's very difficult for some American conservatives to acknowledge that France has done something right.

Kind regards
