The Burqa Ban

If you've been keeping up with the news then you would have probably heard that France is trying to pass a law that makes wearing Burqa's, and anything else that covers your face, in public illegal.  They are saying that it is unjust to allow a man, a group, or even a religion to dictate that a person MUST cover themselves in public.  In addition to the French messing with a religion, they are messing with the most dangerous one.  All over the world people seem to be getting fed up with Islam, speaking out, and then getting attacked or killed for it.  From the French trying to ban the Burqa, to a Facebook group called "Draw Mohammad Day".  People are getting pissed off about how volatile Islams' followers can be.  It makes me angry when people get ANGRY about such trivial shit.  It's your religion, yes, I know.  But why does it needed to be defended with such ferocity? 

I am a Jew.  Not a religious one, and definitely not a practicing one...but I am a JEW.  Jews have been, and are (fo' sho'), made fun of everyday.  We have been killed and hated on throughout history.  We are poked and prodded and everything in between.  But we stay calm and show power through the ability to endure and come back.  Because, when it comes down to it, we've been through it all as a people. 

The more Islam acts out the more criticism they face.  The Facebook group, in my opinion, started because of the cartoonist in Sweden (I think), who drew Mohammad in a newspaper a few years ago, and still is being physically attacked for it.  The masses are saying ENOUGH with all the bullshit and violence.  And so am I.  SOOOO, leave it to the French to make the first anti-group law against Islam for whatever reasons they have.  I have to say, in this case, I'm with them on it.
