The other issue of it being a symbol of oppression and subjugation is another example, but that should come from public pressure, not from legislation. Western governments should take the issue of security into consideration when debating the issue, that more than anything else is what matters most.

An Australian politican’s call to ban the burqa “for safety” following an armed robbery by a bandit wearing the Islamic veil has triggered heated public debate following similar moves in Europe.Senator Cory Bernardi sparked a national furore with claims that the use of a burqa in a hold-up in Sydney on Wednesday showed it had “no place in Australian society” and should be banned “for safety, and for society”The burqa is no longer simply the symbol of female repression and Islamic culture, it is now emerging as the preferred disguise of bandits and ne’er-do-wells,” Bernardi, a conservative lawmaker, wrote on his website.“New arrivals to this country should not come here to recreate the living environment they have just left. They should come here for a better life based on the freedoms and values that have built our great nation.”
NOTE: And of course PM Krudd nixes the suggestion. For anyone interested in Australia vis-a-vis the Islamic horde, always go to Winds of Jihad, Sheik Yer’Mami’s fine blog, you’ll get the full details on a regular basis.
