Discriminating against males wearing burqas and unbelieving children
Women covered from head to toe in a burqa are not stopped by Dutch police. Mainstream Dutch politicians maintain that there exists no legal way to ban them. But what about unbelievers covering their faces in Amsterdam?

When the Dutch police came accross a blonde Dutch citizen wearing a balaclava, they decided to apply the law, but his law enforcement superiors quickly stepped in to defuse the situation.
A Dutch blogger tried to take to the streets covering his face, and he has published his story on his Dutch website blindedarm.com.
Covering his face with only his eyes visisble, he soon discovered that he was unable to walk the streets freely in the same way as a Muslim burqa-wearer can.
Moreover, Dutch police officers were confused, especially when he pointed out that they were unconstitutionally discriminating against him.
The Dutch blogger, known as “bivak guy” had presented his ID to several law enforcement officers.
The one police officer who decided to apply the law, demanded that he remove the black balaclava that “bivak guy” had been wearing forthwith. But when the cop’s superior arrived, by bike, the superior officer agreed that is was not legal in the Netherlands to appear covered in public, but did not act on it.
Even after “bivak guy” insisted that he should be arrested, the superior in charge dismissed the complaint. “Bivak guy”, he said, did not have to show his face.
The lower-ranking police officer was of course right, because in The Netherlands it’s not allowed, by law, to walk around with a mask of any kind that hides the face. But politicians have been sowing confusion by debating a partial ban of the burqa, as if it were legal to be wearing a mask in the first place.
They have in fact created a special category for Muslims only, and have issued special instructions to officers asking them to avoid Muslim women regarding this matter. The Dutch police force no longer cares about applying the law, but instead prefers to be politically correct, “bivak guy” said.
Some years ago, children from the Amsterdam elementary school De Horizon, while being educated in a “multicultural” fashion, went on a field trip to the El Mouchidine mosque in Amsterdam. During the visit to the mosque, the imam told the children that they, all unbelievers, were dogs. The 10-year-old children and their teachers listened to his speech in shocked silence.
During a visit of 7th grade children from Osdorp Basisschool De Horizon to the local El Mouahidine Mosque, Mosque President M. Guennoun called his young visitors canines in a most unfriendly way.
The school later sent a letter to the parents explaining how they “regretted” the incident, but the imam was less repentant and felt no remorse. He later denied that he had said it.
“We are shocked that during the visit to the mosque, the chairman told the children and their accompanying parents that unbelievers are dogs. This statement is unacceptable, because we teach our children in this project respect for the freedom of religion.”
One parent who had mailed a letter typed by the board of the school to the media, said: “The school wants to keep it small.”
The El Mouahidin Mosque participates in the Intercultureel Leefbaarheids Overleg [Intercultural Living Consultation] in Osdorp. Both parties declined to speak about it to the media. “We’re getting together and I do not really want to discuss this with De Telegraaf [a Dutch newspaper],” said Mariët Berge of the school board.
“We have been in the mosque very often and that always goes well,” she added, implying they would continue to send their children to the mosque.

The establishment parties dropped in yesterday’s election in Sweden, but far from what would be expected from early polls. The Social Democrats and Conservatives remain the biggest parties, with anti establishment Sweden Democrats at third place, growing from 12.9 to 17.6 percent. However, the party could still play an decisive role, since the difference between the socialist and conservative block is one single seat.
