Netherlands - Burka Ban

November 20, 2006, 2:29pm

The Dutch government have accepted a new law that forbids burkas. The main argument is that it's illegal to walk around in the Netherlands without showing your face - balaclavas are also forbidden. Anyway, hardline integration minister Rita Verdonk, the one who came up with the integration test, proposed the idea. She's been rather ticked off by Muslims since one of them refused to shake her hand and now she's on a crusade. Strangely enough, this news is bigger outside the Netherlands. Muslims around the world are pissed off...

Dutch embassies are on a Code Red warning for terrorist attacks. Meanwhile, many Americans are loving it.
