It's about god damned time.
From Relipundit the Astutest Blogger:
André Gerin, a Communist Party legislator and mayor of Vénissieux, a Lyon suburb with many Muslims fromNorth Africa, began the affair in late June by initiating a motion, signed by 57 other legislators, calling for the parliamentary commission. THIS IS GREAT. THERE IS HOPE FOR EUROPE AFTER ALL. IF THE LEFT AND RIGHT WAKES UP, THEN THE CENTRIST/MAJOR PARTIES WON'T BE ABLE TO IGNORE THE PROBLEM.
“The burqa is the tip of the iceberg,” Mr. Gerin said. “Islamism really threatens us.”
In a letter to the government, he wrote: “It is time to take a stand on this issue that concerns thousands of citizens who are worried to see imprisoned, totally veiled women.”
