    France becomes the frist country in Europe to put such a law in place...is this an infringement of freedoms or something necessary, as they put it, for ensuring gender equality?

    They're gonna have trouble enforcing this law :rolleyes: Honestly, I think something like this just makes them a more likely target for terrorist attacks.

    Do I support what they are doing? No.

    However...

    They won't have much trouble enforcing the law IMO. France seems to be able to get away with anything. They're literally shipping gypsies out of the country. They banned the burka in schools awhile ago. This isn't anything new. Just an expansion of previous policy.

    Still, the past 6 months in international/domestic politics has not painted a pretty picture for Muslims.

    The Muslim population of France is estimated to be about six to ten percent Muslim out of a total population of sixty three million(The largest percentage in Western Europe). That would mean about four to six million mostly concentrated in the arrondissments in a ring around Paris. French Gendarmes are afraid to enter these areas. Check the last French elections. Even polititions were afraid to go into these areas because of the violence and riots. Charles Martel is rolling in his grave. Where is Holger Danske when we need him??

    We sometimes study and sometimes remember Agincourt and Hastings. We forget Tours, Lepanto & The Siege of Vienna. In the great scheme of things more important to the survival of western culture. Those Who Forget History and so on and so on.
