France Bans Muslim Street Prayer; Dutch Draft Burqa Law

Hundreds of Muslims have reportedly defied a French ban on outdoor prayer, which went into effect today. The French government announced Thursday it was banning praying outside and officials had pledged to enforce it.

French interior minister Claude Gueant said he had nothing against Islam but wanted it out of the public eye because France was a secular state. Here is my story about Muslim prayers in the streets of Paris. I'm told that it had a big political impact in France.

Meanwhile, the Dutch prime minister says the government has drawn up legislation to ban face-covering veils such as the burqa, worn by some Muslim women.

Mark Rutte says the proposed ban will be sent to the government's legal advisory body, the Council of State, before lawmakers vote on it. The legislative process is expected to take months. 

The government said in a statement Friday that the ban aims at "protecting the character and customs of public life in the Netherlands."

If, as expected, parliament approves the ban, the Netherlands will follow France and Belgium in outlawing the veil.

Both of these laws stand up for important principles in the struggle over Islamization in Europe. But the demographic statistics are the ticking time bomb.

Muslim immigrant birth rates have been so high compared to native birthrates, that someday large Muslim political blocs in each nation might team up with the far Left to simply overturn any laws deemed anti-Muslim.

# RE: France Bans Muslim Street Prayer; Dutch Draft Burqa Law

The Muslim are playing the same game in our communities, intimidating their neighbors, demanding larger Mosques and Sharia Law to be respected as local laws.
The Muslims had violated our sovereignty by taking the statement of Freedom of Religion out of content from our Constitution. The State Department had directors that were not qualify and lack the research facilities to come to a conclusion that this Constitution of the U.S. only applies to American Citizens the option to select a State religion. In America a state religion is generally considered to mean that the government permits religion practices of other Christian sects besides the state religion, and does not persecute believers in other faiths in America. In early 1960’s that the United Nations that requested the Western Nations to allow Muslim and Asian countries to immigrate to be educated and trained to improve their homelands with the understanding of respecting the culture, customs, and religions of the host country.

Since the Muslims has shown disrespect to all sovereign nations and committing treason in all aspects, they should be prohibited in non-Muslim Nations as Christianity is prohibited in Muslim Nations.
