    Just heard a policewoman was run down by a car on purpose outside the Elysee palace here. She's OK. Young 19-year-old driver from suburbs says he got scared and panicked.

    Yes, I have. I've seen a woman on a hot summer day wearing a niquab eating in a Mcdonalds with her little son (t shirt and shorts) and her husband (t shirt and shorts). I've seen them hauling groceries while their husbands stroll ahead of them. I've seen them push people out of the way with their baby strollers.
    I've seen women in Niquabs and Tschadors walking with other women in the same costume or with their husbands and children.
    Never in the company of a woman NOT in the robes.

    I see it as antisocial. IMO, it's a sign that her family does not want to assimilate and become part of our culture. I think it's a sign that her family apparently believes she should be invisible. It's a signal that her family is going to follow religious law rather than the existing laws of the country in which they are living. It's a sign that the woman and her family reject the culture of the community into which they have injected themselves. IMO

    IMO, it's a way of bringing the oppression and repression of theocracies into a democracy in order to destroy the democratic systems of government.
    I do not want Sharia laws to be accepted in North America in any way, and I don't want any legislation that erodes the rights for which women have had to fight so hard. I don't want clitorectomies to be first considered a "cultural" practice for a minority, and then gradually a requirement for female acceptability. I don't want my granddaughter to have cease being a person, to be forced to wear a cage, because she is female in a country that appeases bullies hiding behind a multicultural shield and pseudo religious sensibilities.

    And this seemingly innocent costuming of women in a way which denies their individuality is just that. They are a test to see how far these bullies can push a host government and people to accept the introduction of Sharia laws and cultures. We accept these costumes without a fight, then maybe we'll accept blasphemy laws that make drawing a cartoon of some religious figure a crime that comes with a death sentence. We accept these costumes, then we'll accept second and third wives as legal instead of bigamy. We accept these costumes and maybe we'll change so that half the population won't be allowed to own property in their own names.

    Aside from that, how do we know that the person wearing this costume is a woman. We don't. We don't know what is strapped to the body underneath that veiling. The person, of whatever gender, who is wearing a Niquab or a Burka is a potential weapon, a public safety hazard, and an affront to civil freedoms.

    The headscarves are, IMO, only beautiful if they are there as a freely made choice.

    Paris police seek new suspect in terror attacks

    http://www.latimes.com/world/europe...ew-suspect-20150115-story.html#navtype=outfit

    Attacker Amedy Coulibaly, 32, rented the small house south of Paris in the suburb of Gentilly about two weeks ago, and a search by detectives from the Paris Criminal Brigade and a special police anti-terrorism unit resulted in the seizure of a scooter that allowed them to identity the new potential accomplice, according to Le Parisein.

    Spanish officials investigating an alleged terrorist cell that supported the Paris attacks found evidence that Coulibaly stayed in Madrid from December 30 to January 2 , according to the Catalan daily La Vanguardia.

    Coulibaly was accompanied by an unidentified person, the newspaper reported, noting that Turkish officials have confirmed that his girlfriend passed through Madrid at the same time.
