This is a continuation of a funny issue for me. I'm not a fan of Islam (maybe my least favourite of the three main monotheist religions) and I'm really not a fan of symbols of subservience (like the burka), but I also care a great deal about free expression.

It reminds me of when the Swiss banned Minarets. Countries that are supposed to represent freedom, liberty, and tolerance, are getting too caught up in the Muslims-Invading-Europe panic.
