France in Uproar over Cloth Strips

Despite public support, French legislators are beginning to reappraise the idea that Jews should not wear yarmulkes, Christians should not wear crosses, and Muslims should not wear veils in French public schools.

According to the Guardian, most French people support the ban, because they want to “defend” the republic against the demands of Islam.

(Regrettably, defending the right to wear yarmulkes is not so great an issue, although it should be, since men who wear them in France tend to get beaten up.)

Wake up, French folks. You can’t defeat something with nothing. If you don’t want France to become Muslim, get yourself (and your kids if you have them) to church or synagogue.
