Italy bans Islamic burqas

So how comes the 'slims in Italy aren't jumping up and down about their human rights? After all according to Tony in order to be a member state within the EU it is a precursor that we must sign up to the European Convention on Terrorist's Rights -in the UK we cant move without being reminded of this. But in France they seem to push ahead and ban the burqas in schools okay and in spite of a big fuss and protests noone thought to challenge the French judicial system on this. Likewise in Italy nothing. Omar the Italian Bomber and his silly lawyer seem to be fully aware of their human rights (As does Cherie) so what gives? Also im surprised i picked this up through The Australian and not Sky - surely we would have heard something through Murdoch's grapevine via Sky Italia.....Odd. Going back to Cherie - apparently Bill Clinton really likes her and wants to push her towards becoming UK PM. Cheers Bill, you muppet. Dont fill her oversized lopsided head with any more notions.

Florence August 01, 2005 -

"ITALY has banned Islamic burqas under tough terrorism laws that provide two-year jail terms and E2000 ($3200) fines for anyone caught covering their face in a public place.The counter-terrorism package, passed by Italy's parliament yesterday, doubles the existing penalty for wearing a burqa or chador -- traditional robes worn by Muslim women to cover their faces -- or full-faced helmets or balaclavas in public. Police can extract DNA samples without a suspect's consent, detain them for 24 hours without a lawyer present, and deport foreigners suspected of terrorism under the new legislation. Soldiers involved in counter-terrorism have been given the same stop-and-search powers"
