EU Bans Islamic Headscarf, Sparking Angry Protest From Soros-Funded Group

A ruling by the European Union's top court on Tuesday, which allows companies to bar staff from wearing Islamic headscarves and other visible religious symbols, has set off a storm of complaint from rights groups and religious leaders. With its first ruling on a hot political issue across Europe, the Court of Justice (ECJ) has found that a Belgian firm which had a rule barring employees who dealt with customers from wearing visible religious and political symbols "may not have discriminated" against a receptionist dismissed for wearing a headscarf.

The judgment came on the eve of a Dutch election in which Muslim immigration is a key issue; in several weeks France also votes for a president in a similarly charged campaign. Piggybacking on the ruling, scandal-ridden French candidate, conservative Francois Fillon, hailed the ruling as "an immense relief" that would contribute to "social peace".

However, the ruling also prompted angry responses: a campaign group backing the women said the ruling could shut many Muslim women out of the workforce. And European rabbis said the Court had added to rising incidences of hate crime to send a message that "faith communities are no longer welcome". Reactions focused on the conclusion that services firm G4S in Belgium was entitled to dismiss receptionist Samira Achbita in 2006 if, in pursuit of legitimate business interests, it fairly applied a broad dress code for all customer-facing staff to project an image of political and religious neutrality, Reuters reported.

    Has everyone noticed that they're always doing two things in tandem that fight against one another? For example, they'll welcome in a lot of people who wear the headscarf, then ban the headscarf. Surely they knew what the outcome of that would be, so it feels a bit on purpose to me.

    I seriously doubt that the reaction from a Soros based group is fueled by anger.  In fact, if one were to dig a little deeper, I wouldn't be surprised see that the whole idea for the ban leads right back to Soros.  I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the reaction is more calculated than angry.  You know, the Higelian dialectic.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    A headscarf in itself isn't religious.  We tend to look at who is wearing the scarf and then decide by their apparent race that it's a religious symbol.
    Likewise a Christmas Tree and giving presents and Easter Cards and exchanging Easter Eggs are actually commercial in background. Easter Eggs are a symbol of fertility

    The History of Christmas Trees. The evergreen fir tree has traditionally been used to celebrate winter festivals (pagan and Christian) for thousands of years. Pagans used branches of it to decorate their homes during the winter solstice, as it made them think of the spring to come.

    Beyond Ishtar: The Tradition of Eggs at Easter

    Don't believe every meme you encounter.

    Eggs occupy a special status during Easter observances. They're symbols of rebirth and renewal—life bursts forth from this otherwise plain, inanimate object that gives no hint as to what it contains. In this regard it is a handy symbol for the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but it is is a symbol that has held this meaning long before Christianity adopted it.

    There is a meme floating around Facebook that some people have rallied around and are sharing as a "truth" of Easter. It proclaims:

    Easter was originally the celebration of Ishtar, the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of fertility and sex. Her symbols (like the egg and bunny) were and still are fertility and sex symbols (or did you actually think eggs and bunnies had anything to do with the resurrection?) After Constantine decided to Christianize the Empire, Easter was changed to represent Jesus. But at its roots, Easter (which is how you pronounce Ishtar) is all about celebrating fertility and sex.

    Rosie, you raise a good point. What if a Christian Arab woman wanted to wear a head scarf because it's a windy day? She couldn't - unless she carried a whole bunch of baggage with her. It's actually very interesting (in a negative sort of way).
