Liberal voyeurism

Word has just come in that the German Liberals are anything but that. The leader of their parliamentary party in the Federal State of Schleswig-Holstein, where they run the government jointly with the conservatives, wants to strip Muslim ladies of their cover by prohibiting teachers from wearing headscarves to school. Dr. Papke also states that Muslims must give their women a greater level of “self-determination” and “freedom” – talk about contradicting yourself!

Good point. It's very easy for non-muslims not to understand the female muslims do this out of choice and out of respect for their religion. I do agree that Muslim women deserve more rights as it pertains to government decisions such as voting. They should have more rights when it comes to job selections. But forcing them to do something that their religion requires them to do, because of a misunderstanding is rediculous. Good point!
