Why I want Moslem women to be able to wear whatever they think appropriate - including Burqah

See the Transcript of the video, where Hazem precises "that there is no personal freedom in Islam" (blogger's version), that someone who is a Muslim woman to be honest should wear the veil (his own version of what he is saying)

I do not want to be part of a counterislam that leaves as little personal freedom in the opposite direction. I want to be part of a Christendom where personal liberty is respected. As long as Muslims stay in a Christian country as Muslims, they should be able to live like Muslims while doing so. If we find people living as Muslims a threat, expulsion is less intrusive than making non-burqah the Republican version of the Burqah.

"There is a saying among Muslims:
eat as you like, dress as other people like."

The problem is that this is a saying among Muslims. Applying this against Muslims, yes, it might annoy Muslims, it does not expel them, and it islamises our own institutions in mentality if not in confession. Switzerland did much better, as banning Minarets on new mosques, it might have gone better still and said "Moslems without access to a mosque in Switzerland are free to worship at home, with invited friends, and of course at Muslim Country Embassies."

Eat and dress as ou like - legislate and build as other people like.*

The problem is also not the birthrate of Muslims, but the lack of birthrate among Occidentals. And I have said that over and over again, and I have over and over again attacked recent prejudices against teen marriages and teen mothers and about responsibility of getting a job first and so on and so forth that are severely hampering the freedom of young people to marry and to make babies.

*How about laws requiring new Churches to be æsthetic?
