1) It’s one thing to take in immigrants. It’s another thing for those immigrants to begin to take over your country. People can do what they like in private, but for women to wear burqas in varied public settings is to make a aggressive, bold statement, one that the whole society feels.

2) The burqa is not merely an expression of Islam. It is an expression of militant Islam. And militant Islam wants to control, to subjugate. It does not want to blend in and integrate. It wants to dominate. And just as we shouldn’t allow militant Islamic clerics to import hatred and violence into our countries, we shouldn’t allow militant Muslims to force their practices on their women in our societies.

3) The culture of the burqa is the culture of oppression, of viewing women as second-class citizens. This flies in the face of our Western values and is a direct assault on our heritage and culture. Not only so, but as expressed by Dutch Interior Minister Kajsa Ollongren, “far from violating fundamental rights, the ban will enable Muslim women ‘to have access to a wider social life’ because if they do not cover the face ‘they will have more possibilities for contact, communication and opportunities to enter the job market.’” In the words of Dutch political leader Geert Wilders “People's faces should not be hidden in society, for it is our faces that give us our identity and our fundamental means of communication with others.”
