As a symbol of Islamic separatism, supremacism and misogyny, the Islamic burqa is hard to beat. Outside of the mosque, it's an affront to every Judeo-Christian sensibility to see it on the streets of the West, a giant middle finger to the host culture, and a promise of more Islam to come. So good on Austria for finally taking action:
A law prohibiting any kind of full-face covering, known popularly as the Burqa Ban, takes effect Sunday in Austria, where the strong support for it portends potential political upheaval in the upcoming national election.
Parties campaigning on an anti-migrant message are poised to win on Oct. 15 and to form a coalition government. Such a rightward swing in a country thats had centrist governments almost consistently since World War II could have repercussions across Europe, emboldening politicians who take a hard line on Islam and immigration.
Last week, the right-wing, anti-migrant Alternative for Germany party won seats in Germanys national parliament for the first time after featuring posters with the slogan Burqas? We prefer bikinis in its campaign.
The Austrian law called Prohibition for the Covering of the Face forbids off-slope ski masks, surgical masks outside hospitals and party masks in public. Violations carry a possible fine of 150 euros (nearly $180) and police are authorized to use force with people who resist showing their faces.
But its popular name reflects the most prevalent association the garments some Muslim women wear to conceal their whole faces and bodies. The garments are rare in Austria even after the recent surge of migrants into Europe. Support for the law is strong nonetheless, reflecting anti-Muslim attitudes in the predominantly Catholic country.
Typical AP spin: burqas are rare, so what's the fuss? It never seems to occur to the progressive Left that one burqa on the streets of a "predominantly Catholic" country is one too many, given Islam's inability to compromise, integrate, or abandon any of its culturally inimical core beliefs. Also, it's ironic that outfits like the AP and Reuters habitually refer to "countries" like Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan as "deeply conservative," then set their charming customs in opposition to the supposed irrationality of "predominantly Catholic" western countries that want no part of Islam -- especially when much of central and eastern Europe has already had all the experience of Islam it can stomach.
The New Crusades are coming. Only a matter of time.
Good. Do like the Chinese and ban the Quran next. It’s a political system, NOT a religion.
Man, I hope you’re right.
Western countries have to decide if they want to survive.
Islam is not compatible with survival.
This law means nothing unless they also halt Muslim immigration. Once the Muslim percentage of the population hits a tipping point all laws go out the window.
HOORAY Austria...but how did Islam crawl out of its hellhole and get to Austria? Islam/jihad advances have been unprecedented since 09-11-01.
“The New Crusades are coming. Only a matter of time.”
A pogrom of sorts, perhaps, but not a crusade. Crusades can only be declared by popes. And this pope won’t be doing that any time soon.
Yes, once the Islamic percentage of the population is high enough, any attempt to hinder Sharia means rioting.
Are you suggesting that the Billy Graham Crusades were not that?
Good on ya, mates.
“Are you suggesting that the Billy Graham Crusades were not that?”
Are you confusing THE crusades with Billy Graham’s Crusades? And yeah, Billy Graham’s Crusades were NOT crusades.
That must piss 0bama off. Those Austrians speaking Austrian and picking on his muslim brothers and sisters.
“HOORAY Austria...but how did Islam crawl out of its hellhole and get to Austria?”
The Muslim Jihad into Europe reached all the way to “The Gates of Vienna” where it was defeated on 9/11/1683.
By the Polish, I think.
"You'd think with the salt water crocs, kangaroos and didgeree doos, they wouldn't have time for racism..."
“this pope wont be doing that any time soon.’
I’m not so sure that he won’t be declaring one against capitalism, freedom, and the US.
Yes. Yes we are suggesting that.
Billy Graham's work was not forcing anybody to do or believe something under threat of violence, or even by force of law, the way ISlam is doing.
