France: Burqa-Wearers To Be Fined 700 Euros

France has more balls than any Western country at the moment:

WOMEN who wear Islamic veils in public could be liable to a £700 fine under laws being formulated in France.

Men who force women to cover their faces could face fines of double that amount.

Jean-Francois Cope, president of Nicolas Sarkozy’s ruling UMP Party in the French parliament, said the legislation was intended to protect the “dignity” and “security” of women.

He is set to file the draft law in the National Assembly after Mr Sarkozy said veils were “not welcome” as they intimidated and alienated non-Muslims.

“We want a ban in public areas,” said Mr Cope, making it clear that he did not want the veil to be allowed in public buildings nor on the streets. But there would be exceptions for cultural events. Anyone refusing to pay the fine could be arrested and eventually face jail.

sorry if that offends multi culti's and civil libertarians but the west is not obliged to allow them to practice miscogeny. under the guise that all culTures are equal, they are not.

I hope it will pass because it is necessary.

Libertarians? I don't generalize: there are some of them who reject this and some others who support burqa (I can't understand why). The latter are absolute moonbats.

But will they fine the men who take over the streets of France (in your face/on Christmas) as well?

If this passes it will be interesting to see how it's enforced by a society which has already shown itself incapable of enforcing age old laws against arson and looting.
