Veiled threat

We have seen some extraordinary scenes of politicians of both main parties criticising Muslim women for wearing veils.

Tradition dictates that Muslim women are restricted to work within the home, covering themselves modestly in public.

It does not bother me what they wear, and they can choose to cut themselves off from the rest of society if they so wish.

It is but a symptom of a much more serious issue: Islam is completely incompatible with modern democracy.

The Quran states:

"O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people." Quran 5.51

So, messrs Blair, Brown and Cameron, how am I supposed to integrate with people who hold this view?

Humanity needs peace not Islam.
