WOMEN WHO WEAR THE BURQA WOULD BE JAILED

Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders has proposed the banning of the burqa as a symbol of oppression. Women who violate the proposed law would be jailed.

``The burqa and niqab are a symbol of oppression of women,'' Wilders told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. He said burqas and the niqab - a full-faced veil with only a slit for the eyes - hindered integration of Muslim women into Dutch society and also posed a security risk.

An Islamic community spokesman, Ayhan Tonca, called Wilders' proposal ``totally out of proportion'' and accused him of seeking to broaden a rift between Muslims and the rest of Dutch society."

Wilders' reasoning sounds like common sense, however, with the dominance of relativism in the West --which renders so many unable to differentiate between Christianity and Islam --nothing would seemingly stop such a law from being applied to a convent full of nuns in habits?
