The Economist on the Burqa Ban

Just when I was about to write my own balanced and reasoned article on Belgium’s recent Burqa Ban, the Economist does it for me.

Like Muslims in Europe wanting to add minarets and loudspeakers onto their mosques, I feel the answer to both issues is just to wait a bit and not stir things up. It’s not worth it – neither side benefits and there are more important things to worry about. Put your own houses in order in other ways and get round to these issues afterwards.
