Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?
in response to reader comment: STOP THEM

I would be interested to hear opinions on what Jack Straw said the other day regarding the wearing of full head dress (forgive my ignorance i do not know the correct term for it) by muslim women and how this should not be worn as it signifies a blatent difference between Muslim/christian.

Also Mr Cameron's (leader of the conservative party) comments that islamic schools should have at least a quarter of its pupils from different faiths to encourage diversity. This should also be extended to communities as well to stop segregation and fear. Your thought from whatever side of the divide will be greatly received.
