What do you think of Aishah Asmi?
Muslims are the new Jews
By India Knight
Very little makes sense in this business about Jack Straw, Muslim women and veils. Aishah Azmi, a teaching assistant from Dewsbury, Yorks, was last week suspended for refusing to take her veil off in class - she was allowed to wear it everywhere else at school, but, rightly to my mind, was told by her local education authority that her pupils, who are mostly learning English as a second language, needed to see her mouth when she taught. This seems entirely sensible.
Who can identify any criminal in a veil?
We must beware of suicide bombers in veils.
Terrorists can move around in burqas and we won't know until they explode before our very eyes. Then it would be too late to stop them.
The earlier we ban the wearing of all masks and veils in public the safer we would be.
