Rediculous, the French president Chirac wants to ban the muslim hair covers, the jewish caps and large crosses at public schools.. since these religious symbols are opposing the distinction between church and state. I mean, can it get more crazier than that? Why ban religious icons, rather teach people how to deal with them.. I don't understand the whole hoopla about the muslim hair covers anyway.. it is a big issue here in the Netherlands: they have to integrate and thus not wair those things. Who cares??
