Muslims dislike bill banning headwear in license photos (MN)
StarTRibune ^ | 3/2/09 | AP

Posted on 03/02/2009 9:26:40 AM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo

A St. Cloud lawmaker says a bill that would ban any kind of headwear in a driver's license photo is a matter of public safety. But some Muslims say they have a religious right to cover their heads.

State Rep. Steve Gottwalt says banning headwear would make it easier for law enforcement to identify people and it would make it fair for everyone.

But Suban Khalif says Muslim women wear a head scarf nearly 24 hours a day as part of their religion, and taking it off — even for a few minutes — is a big deal. Khalif and other Muslim women say their facial features should be enough for law enforcement to identify them.

It's been my observation that muslim women are incredibly poor drivers. I believe that some of that comes from all their headgear impairing their peripheral vision...JMHO.

Hypocrites. In some Muslim states, women aren't even allowed to drive, period!

The impaired vision is usually the result of the beating they just got back at the house...

Mohammedanism is incompatible with Western Culture (but thank Allah for them we are no longer a Western nation).

The worst drivers are always those whose last vehicle either had four legs or was powered by their own.

If they won’t take off their stupid headscarfs, they don’t get a driver’s license. How hard is this? Driver’s licenses aren’t a right.

They’re apparently lucky to have a head to put the scarf on

Is there anything these people do like of the West? Get a Saudi driver license, dammit. (And stay there forever.)

Move back to Islam.

By their presence here, they are admitting that thier culture has failed them in at least one aspect. Otherwise, they would not be here.

This one is simple.

Driving is a privilege, not a legal right. One may choose not to abide by the driving LAWS and simply not drive.

And the fact they never bothered to learn to drive.

I swear, here in the DC-area, the driving is absolutely third-world. No order. No paying attention. No playing by the rules (Lanes? Who needs lanes, I'll just turn left from the far right lane).

I swear, it isn't the usual “angry white male” that is doing this, it is the muslim drivers, those with a foreign flag hanging from their rear-view, etc.

Well, between the beatings and the “honor killings” I wonder how “The Religion of Peace” keeps cranking out those kids. Do they keep proselytizing dupes like BO’s Mom?

I would imagine that they are free to go back to their countries where they can wear it photographed and all.

Dislike? I didn't know that there was any emotion other than Complete Outrage in Islam.

I hate the United States for making our women take off their head sacks for drivers licenses. I also hate the United States for letting women drive.

When they stop beheading Christians and Jews, and flying planes into buildings, and blowing up buses carrying Jewish children to school, I say let them cover their faces on license photos.

Kalif is full of cr*p. The headscarf tradition is CULTURAL IN ORIGIN and has nothing whatsoever to do with any religion.

If Moslems wish to drive cars (and in Saudi that's not allowed) they have to conform to the rules of the land, not the mystical twinklings of their little minds.

Wow, sucks to be them, huh... Luckily for them they don't have a religious right to drive. No conflict, no problem, case closed...

Well then they don’t need to drive. Driving is not a right it is a priviledge and if you won’t obey the rules for the photograph perhpas you just shouldn’t drive?

Amish don’t need drivers licenses. They don’t drive.
