Re: RE: "Ni Putes, Ni Soumises" - Fadela AmaraDec 20th, 2004
People are not forced to participate in the discussion. I'm focusing on the people who DO have an opinion about this - like moghrabi. And the questions Fadela Amara askes about the hijab for example are not only appliable to France.
I hate it when these women try to make a name for themselves by attacking a symbol of a religion such as Hijab.
Fadela Amara is not on the attack -- rather, she is on the defense. It is the republic and its institutions which are under attack by fundamentalism.
When a female social worker on the government payroll refuses to shake hands with male clients -- that's an attack on the secular nature of France.
When a merchant violates the terms of his supermarket franchise by refusing to sell porc and wine -- that's an attack on the secular nature of France.
When girls attend public schools in ostentatious religious dress -- that's an attack on the secular nature of France.
When non-muslim women are aggressed in the streets by fundamentalist for the religious crime of dressing too feminine -- that's an attack on the secular nature of France.
In another ten years it will be Canada's turn to enjoy moghrabi's nightmare...
