War breaks out for "secular" reasons, probably more often that for religious reasons.

Banning headscarves isn't going to stop any wars or terrorist acts. If anything, it's sending the wrong message to Moslem countries and people. This makes me really angry.

It would be interesting to see the Muslim perspective on France's legislation, considering the large Muslim population in France.

From Aljazzeer

Quote:
France's main Muslim groups were split over a looming ban on Islamic headscarves in public schools, with their nominal head branding pro-hijab protests as dangerous but other leaders approving them.


Dalil Bubakr, the moderate chairman of the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM), struggled to rally Muslims behind his warning not to join protest marches planned for 17 January by several more fringe groups.

But leaders of the two largest groups in the CFCM, a body Paris helped launch last year to bring France's five million Muslims more into the mainstream, refused to denounce the protests against a law they say is discriminatory.

The dispute was shaping up as a big challenge to Bubakr, rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris, and a potentially damaging political embarrassment for President Jacques Chirac and fellow conservatives who imposed Bubakr as head of the CFCM.

"I warn my fellow Muslims, brothers and sisters," Bubakr said in arguing against the protests after the CFCM leadership met Education Minister Luc Ferry to lobby against the veil law.

"In the current climate of tense relations between Muslims and society in Europe in general and France in particular, we must play the democratic game."

I'd demonstrate against this if I were in France. I'd wear my St. Jude medal to the demonstration. My Moslem friends here are absolutely outraged. This is awful.
