Veil or No Veil?

There has recently been a debate about Muslim women wearing a veil. It all started when Cabinet Minister, Jack Straw, "asked Muslim women visitors to his offices to remove their veils to facilitate communication." The Islamic veil across Europe.

I have just posted the following comment at the BBC website. Whether they publish it is another matter. (See Love or hate the veil?)

*******************************

I believe Muslim women should wear veils if that is what they choose. We all do in one form or another.

Isn’t Jack Straw part of a government that is cloaked in secrecy and only telling voters what they like not what is actually happening? Isn’t he wearing a veil?

What about various organisations that are secretly "spying" on people all in the name of national security? Isn't that a kind of veil?

What about those who are using psychics as remote viewers to find out what people are getting up to? Isn't that a veil?

Most people who use the Internet have usernames and Ids. Aren't they veils too?

And what about the veil wearers extraordinaire, a.k.a. the media, who are experts in propaganda and misinformation? That’s another veil, me thinks.

So before you point a finger at people who wear veils, why not take yours off first?

Peace and love.
