France: What Is Hidden Behind the “Burkini Ban”

In Sisco, Corsica, on August 13, a group of Muslim men arrived on a beach in the company of women wearing “burkinis” (full-body bathing costumes). The Muslim men firmly asked the tourists on the beach to leave and posted signs saying “No Entry”. When a few teenagers resisted, the Muslim men responded with a harpoon and baseball bats. The police intervened — but it was just the beginning.

In the following days, on beaches all over France, Muslim men showed up, accompanied by women in burkinis, and asking beachgoers to leave. Tourists packed up and fled. Several mayors of seaside resorts decided to ban the bathing costume, and the “burkini ban” scandal was born.

    Is what is happening in France just a precursor to what the rest of the west will soon see? Is this a battle to dominate the public space and to force the submission of the west to Islam?

    When you are being kicked off the beaches, you know you are losing the battle. If those frequenting the beach are unprepared to defend it as a public space, will they lose it?

    For Australia, Britain, Canada and the U.S. it’s almost too late to be waking up to this reality. When will it be time to fight back, after you lose your public spaces?
